I don't have an Xbox 1, but Forza 5 is the one to compare. If you haven't ever played Forza 4, then you won't know what you're missing with 5 and it will prob feel awesome.

But Forza cut out a lot of cars and tracks on 5 because they have a minimum standard of quality for the game (where GT has "premium" and "non-premium" cars) they didn't want to include cars/tracks that didn't make the cut.

So if that might not bother you it's worth it. For me I lose a lot of my favs from the game.



I'd also wait till Project CARS comes out. That looks good also.

Can't remember... And the one thing that bothers me about GT is how you can have fully tuned cars and then "detune then" resulting in unrealistic power curves.


Remember, I don't have an Xbox 1 either.

I am contemplating what I should pick up. I have a pc, but I am on my xbox360 and want a new platform for gaming only. From a game perspective I am still with xbox and forza as a series over GT, for a lot of the reasons you spoke on Fodo.

I feel forza has a bigger following than GT these days. As for PC goes I'm sure there are a ton of simulator games. Plus the set ups you can build as far the wheel and pedal options are far greater than a platform. if you're into that kinda stuff.

PC = Best for gaming
Playstation = Better for gaming while also giving other media options
Xbox IMO is a counsel aimed towards family gaming/media apps

I played xbox since the original, got a ps3 for christmas a couple years ago and have yet to turn my xbox on. I just wish all the games were made for every system. as for the game decision, i have GT, have Forza 3. I like GT but it still has the very "simulator" feeling to it as to where Forza is mare arcadeish but i think the new Forzas might be more on the simulator side but idk.

Get iRacing if you have a PC, supposed to be an awesome racing sim. I don't have a wheel rig yet so haven't bought it.

OP, I'm a Gran Turismo guy through band through, but I like the swaps on Forza, oh and the engine sounds.

I was a die hard for Gran Turismo back in the PlayStation/2 days. I didn't get into Forza till Xbox 360 came out. I havent tried out any of the new Gran Turismo games lately so im not sure if im missing out on anything but i from the trailers and what not I feel like you wouldn't have any fun till you hit the F1 ranks.

This gets a bit off topic but does anyone remember the Initial D game in the arcade, with the cards? That game was a blast its where I actually learned how to "drive" meaning when to brake and how to hit an apex. I was like 12 years young at the time.

I just bought a 360 spe ifi ally for forza....i am not disappointed at all.

I have played forza4, 5, horizon 1 and 2....i love it.

Xbox wheel rigs are pricey...the one i want is like $700 or some shit...fuck that... if you have a 360 why not go to the video rental store and check out some games? Some video store rent consols also. Might be an option to see what u like best. I was always a playstation guy. Still learining the xbox controls

IDK about that. The Wii is more geared toward family gaming than Sexbox. But the media Apps I will agree with, tho I dont use them.

I am having a hard time getting a new console, have a good pc and the 360 still works. Played Forza Hor 2 and I like the style and game play a bit more, the graphics are better. Eh...not sure still.

I dont really consider the wii a gaming system, because its was built for family interaction, and its not really a top seller either.
