Gaming Update: Examining the Historical Firmaments of Racing as a New Gaming Standard

Gaming Update's CM Boots-Faubert takes a historical look at the world of car racing in games in this introspective look at what Forza: Horizons and Gran Turismo Academy 2012 might mean for the previously well-established status quo that has existed between the traditional racing genre of on-track games like Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo and the non-traditional street-based scene in games like Need for Speed and Burnout.

With Forza branching out into the wild street racing scene and Fran Turismo furthering its "clinic" style of racer instruction with GT Academy 2012, how the other players in the scene will respond remains an open question. (Blur, E3, Forza Horizon, Forza Motorsport 4, Gran Turismo 5, GT Academy 2012, iRacing, Need for Speed Most Wanted Criteron, PC, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360)
