Friday Flamebait Debate : Is GT5 going to eat Forza 4’s dust?

1 min read


Last year, Gran Turismo 5 – a game that  took nearly 6 years to complete, at an estimated cost of approximately $80 million – was finally released. Some, despite its launch issues, proclaim it as the greatest bit of software ever to grace consoles. Others found it to lack polish and feel a little unfinished. Me? I thought the simulation sublime, but the interface and menus the typically clunky sort we expect from Japanese developers. Doesn’t matter what anybody thought of it though; it’s become Europe’s best selling PS3 exclusive.

Later this year, Turn 10 will be releasing a new Forza – their fourth release in the time it’s taken Polyphony Digital to release just the one. From everything we’ve seen so far, it looks amazing; it’s spectacular visuals, improved physics, world tour, actual AI and yeah..even Kinect support (I guess). Will it be enough though, to convince the most ardent and rabid fans that Forza’s the new king – or will Gran Turismo forever reign supreme?

Let us know which side of the fence you’re on.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
