Will Forza Motorsports 5 Make you a Better Driver?

Everyone wants to drive like Ken Block. Yes, even you. Just admit it. There, doesn’t that feel better? (Culture, Industry, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

No.
GT6 will.

@Cam977

Exactly GT6 can make you a better driver because is the DRIVING simulator. Now Forza can turn you into a racer and car enthusiast. I prefer to race full pedal to the metal than just driving my race car around like is a soccer mom van.

Cam977 Do you have Forza 4?
Cam977  +   682d ago
I don't own Forza 4 but I have played it deeply at friends' houses. I must point out that Forza has superior engine sound effects when compared to GT, but I do prefer GT's driving as it feels more rewarding when compared to the arcade/simulator driving physics of Forza.

I bet you suck at forza 4.

"but I do prefer GT's driving as it feels more rewarding when compared to the arcade/simulator driving physics of Forza"

Kid please. Next time you race in forza 4 make sure that you can setup a car/race car like a pro first and then judge the physics.

Many who complain about Forza 4 is because they have no fnck!ng clue of what to do with the boatload of tuning options they have in front of their screens in Forza. Race the car without the assist and then complain that is not realistic. I have met many GT fans inside Forza and they are completely lost and start complaining but when they try my cars in the car club that im in then they scream/cry for the setups.

Im not saying that Forza 4 is way better than iRacing but is way more better than GT5 and for what i see in those GT6 video is better than GT6 too. BUT OF COURSE here on N4G Forza 4 suck... Riiiiiight!.

Yes - assist has to be turned off. The tuning options are endless and most people don't even mess with them. I can honestly say that my gaming experience has helped me in real world driving/racing, without a doubt.
hennessey86  +   682d ago
depends
it can learn you track layouts, race craft etc but in general driving aspects no. the physics are not realistic enough and that goes for GT as well. I no both sets of fans like to claim they are realistic but they are not, have a go on iracing and you will no what I mean.

If anything, I find the people that actually drive in real life play crap in racing games and then those that don't drive in real life are bloody good in-game.
TheUltimateGamer  +   682d ago
THAT was impressive! Wow
GrownUpGamer  +   682d ago
and that was Stephane Sarazzin

Ask yourself How he manage to led that P1 Car IN FORZA 3 like that?

but hey according to some "If anything, I find the people that actually drive in real life play crap in racing games".

Here on N4G Forza 3 suck yet you see that PROFESSIONAL DRIVER Stephane Sarazzin racing in forza 3 like a pro. People that is FORZA 3 for god sake!!!

I'm a huge GT6 fan as well. You guys think GT6 is more of a realistic driving sim than Forza 5? Back in the day - yes GT3 and GT4 were my "go to" driving sims for sure.

I never been a fan of gt games but im looking forward to driveclub

Heck no. Just like flying in simulators and PC game simulators will not make you a better pilot. We pilots obtain flight hours in a plane in the air, because simulators are tuned to be sensitive and exagerrate real world performance of the aircraft, weather, and how those two interact. Nothing beats the real thing.

Just like having sex LOL!
SITH  +   682d ago
Absolutely. Lol. Nothing beats the real thing inside of the real thing. ;)
givemeshelter  +   682d ago
None of these games will. LOL If anyone thinks so I have swamp land in Florida for you on the cheap cheap :-p
TheUltimateGamer  +   682d ago
I've become a better driver with out a doubt. I grew up playing racing games like the early Gran Turismo's and Rush2049 in the arcades. I've been racing autoX for years and I believe it's helped me greatly. You guys are crazy lol
