Forza 4 is way more fun with better graphics and WAY better car models. It holds 60fps too, something gt5 doesn't do (just take a lap on Spa)

FM4 has way better chat options and multiplayer options too.

Forza, the only thing GT does better is sales.

Gran Turismo for me.

And if you seriously want to compare Forza cars to Standard Cars in GT then yes, of course they are better, but they don't even come close to the Premium cars.

Neither of them are arcade racers. Both are focused on Simulation.

Riiiidge Raceeer ofc...

I've always found the arcade modes in GT & Forza to be rather boring.

The sim modes hit the right nail between realism and arcade whereas the arcade modes are just boring and a waste of time.

If you want a good arcade racer, play Burnout,

If you like Racing games that DON"T have hidden assists, and inaccurate real life tracks then I guess GT5 is for you.

People don't ever mention Forza Horizon because no one bought it. It should have been DLC for Forza 4. But the 360 owners just love to spend their milk money.

Forza Horizon had an open world. Why should it have been DLC?

It's Forza Motorsport 4 wearing beach wear instead of a racing suit. The skeleton, musculature, nervous system, organs and skin are all still the same. No way in hell I'm dropping $60 what is essentially an expansion pack with Season Passes and sh!t. They are all the same cars, all the same gameplay fundamentals and physics systems... in an open world. Hell, had they delayed FM4 to include Horizon's content, I can guarantee you it would have scored at least a point higher here, if not a 10. FM4 is already content-packed. Free-roam tarmac/dirt racing added in? Good lord... I'm waiting for the Horizon "complete edition".

GT5 has better car models and is has better lighting too. These are 2 things that I find funny that the lems are still trying to argue... Well, is not even funny anymore it's sad. And on top of it Forza's still missing on many things like: WRC, Super GT, Nascar, etc.

To suggest a game with that amount of content should be DLC is, quite frankly, ridiculous.

Being into arcade racers, I have no interest in the Forza main game. Forza provides an excellent balance with arcade racing with a realistic feel. So I bought it and enjoy it, even though I haven't touched any of the main Forza instalments since the original.

TheEpicGoat
True and that's mostly because EU and Japan buys it over Forza. Those countries are dedicated fans. Americans are more into FPS, Act/Adv and Sports games. Forza is still better overall, GT5 was a mess and had to be patched several times. Can't believe they were still using rubber band A.I.

Two very arguable points. One of which (car models) plays off of the other (in terms of then looking better because of the lighting). The up-rez'd GT4 models shouldn't even factor in, and the *consistency* of FM4's lineup is a strong point in it's favor. The lighting, in terms of technical proficiency, at least to me, seems largely comparable. FM4 was a massive step up from FM3, and aside from the lighting gimmicks in GT5 (the glare off the gauges at night, and the modeled rear seats in SOME of the cars), they seem mostly the same. And I'm not sure if it's me or not, but there is a ton of screen tearing in GT5, especially when the windshield wipers get turned on.

Well he'd probably trash Forza even more and say he'd rather insert a ps3 up his butt while driving warthogs around in halo. Granted he might do that with his ps3 any way with the way he dashes into every thread to try and protect it. Maybe it ruptured his colon and his belief in ps3 faltered...

I see you're still damage controlling. Forza is easier and according to insidesimracing gt5 is closer to a Sim than forza 4
