I do agree that Forza (very quicky) stole the genre. But imo GT is still a great game.

The monotony kills me. Forza has just some kind of pizzazz in between races that Turismo lacks.

Gameplay wise, NOTHING touches Turismo though. I can play 2 player games on Turismo; I just hate the "story" mode.

Another thing, Forza hasn't stolen the genre. It's making an impact but GT is still king.

Forza definitely stole the genre. Maybe not sales wise (mostly because of installed bases of PS2 vs Xbox), but Forza2 should definitely dethrone GT on all fronts.

Wouldn't surprise me. They need to add alittle something to GT5 to freshen things up.

To me Forza is king but the original "Test Drive" on playstation will always have a soft spot in my heart

Because claiming that you're the "most realistic driving experience" and then allowing cars to slam into walls at 200 mph, bounce off, and continue racing is lame.

Then they came up with an even lamer excuse that the auto manufacturers wouldn't allow damage modeling on their vehicles...yet Forza has it.

I had the first three GTs, and loved them ALL at first, but then they quickly got boring and repetitive.

Pretty much how I feel. But it's more than just the damage that Forza has on GT.

The biggest thing Forza has on GT IMO is car customization.

It can take days to tweek a car to get the most out of it in Forza. Yet it comes off the rack most times competitive with vehicles in its class. That's one of the things that separates it from the other racers to me. If you're a guy who just wants to sit down, pick up the controller and have a good race you can. And if you are a fanatic who desperately wants to cut a 1/4 second off your time by modifying the car's set-up, you can do that too.

Oh I agree. That was just the lamest part of GT I was pointing out. :D

:yes: I had a Sti in GT4 that ran the 1/4 in 7.6 seconds. :chuckle:

I loved GT for the PS2 so if Forza is better, then i can't wait till it comes out.

Personally I've been of this opinion for some time. Forza offers damage physics that GT just has made no effort to implement. HOWEVER - I believe TOCA takes the cake by far. BEAUTIFUL GRAPHICS (even on PS2) and the damage physics are insane. I like the idea that you get so many racing series in one game but also wish that I could get a specialty game from them. I would love a strictly Indy Car game from them - that'd be amazing.

Looks like the real thing. Although I really don't like the nose with the Ferrari logo on the Enzo. It would look cooler w/o it.

Forza Motorsport 2 Running on 1080p TVs
With the push for 1080p resolution gaming in the next generation arena, it's become ever more important to make sure that not only does your console support native 1080p (the Xbox 360 does), but also that your game looks good when push comes to shove. Which is why late last week, Big Boss Hartman rolled in a brand new 46" 1080p Samsung (S4695D) TV for the art team to tune graphics, in case folks do run the game upscaled to 1080p. Uh, you guys do know that Xbox 360 does 1080p now over your standard component cables, right?

Anyway, from personal experience, 1080p over component cables gives you richer colors, while 1080p over VGA and HDMI give you a sharper picture (less ghosting with text in menus, for instance) while colors overall look a little more washed out. As for Forza Motorsport 2 in 1080p... so far, it's looking very good. That's as much testament to the game's graphics as it is the Xbox 360's beastly resolution upscaler chip, dubbed Ana.

It's almost enough to make me run out and buy a 1080p plasma just so I can go back and play 360 games like Lost Planet and Gears of War in 1080p glory.

I'm confused. I thought the 360 couldn't do 1080p?
