I am a big kid and enjoy playing xBox, but I am more into games like COD, Assassin's Creed, etc. The only racing game I play really is MX vs ATV Reflex. I am not really a car guy, in real life or games. Does GT5 have any rally racing? Those are usually the only car games I enjoy. I had an older version back when I still had a PS2 that had Pike's Peak in it, that was fun to me.

the game has been awesome so far but there a couple issues, like the extreme amount Japanese cars and the limited amount of sports/muscle/super cars.

I'm absolutely not buying this game.  If you'll look at the official list of cars, you'll notice an interesting pattern.  There are more Mitsubishi Lancers featured, than there are cars from the entire Chrysler Corporation.  Ford Motor Company and all of its brands, get beaten-out by the Honda S2000 alone.  And Porsche isn't even on the list at all.  Not even on the list?!  In Forza 3, Porsche was the number-one marque in terms of number-of-cars featured.  No, I'm sorry, there's no way I'm going to buy a racing game that doesn't even have a single Porsche in it.  If you like Japanese cars, buy Gran Turismo 5, you'll love it I'm sure.  If you like anything else, I mean ANYTHING else, then you will probably be more satisfied with Forza (if you're into console games) or rFactor for the PC (if you're looking for a more serious simulation.)

I'm really disappointed that GT5 is so unattractive, because I was really hoping it would be the answer to my many, MANY complaints about Forza (such as the rather mild-and-forgiving driving dynamics).  The worst part is, if you want a good steering wheel for GT5, it's something like $150 to get a 911 Carrera replica wheel with six-speed shifter and pedal set.  But if you want one for the Xbox 360, to buy almost the same exact wheel it's over $300!  I think what I'm going to have to do, is buy the cheaper wheel, and just switch to racing on the PC.


Is this Maico a 440 or only a 400?  Well in all the confusion, I forgot myself.
But considering this is a 1978 Magnum, the best-handling bike in the world, you have to ask yourself one question.
Do you feel lucky, punk?

My 700hp plus 71 Mach One Mustang destroys Ferrari's.  :P  :o And I have noticed that they try and make the jap car handle better which is utter fail. This is by all means the best car game ever, but its not really that good? I really hope they continue to update it VIA internet because at the rate I am going I am going to be done in a week or so. I am only a couple hours in and 20% done.

I've found that in Forza, I spend the vast majority of my time racing against the clock on the Nordschleife.  I still have yet to see someone successfully beat my lap time of 9:06.174 in a 1970 Hemi Challenger (with four-on-the-floor and a 4.10 rear-end with posi).  A car like that, on a track like that... insanity.

I got one of the turismos I think for PS2 maybe, I think it was 3, long time ago, like 2003 or 2002 or something.  Was like photo realistic cars for the time but no damage would ever occur to the cars you could just bounce them off the walls :)

You can always take a photo of a Maco and tape it to the TV jetz to cover up the mitubishi
