Listen to Dan Greenawalt Talk Forza 5 Behind Closed Doors “You’ve Never Driven Anything Like This”

Forza Motorsport 5 Creative Director Dan Greenawalt is a man that’s extremely passionate about his job and about his game, and it shows in this behind closed door presentation for the press at Gamescom, where his passion for simulation and racing was very evident and most of the journalists in the room went completely fish-eyed, while the few actual gamers and sim-racers present started to smile wide. (Forza Motorsport 5, Xbox One)

“You’ve Never Driven Anything Like This” - Whatever. I've driven way better.

Turn Ten seems to forget that they are new kids of the block. Polyphony Digital has been at this game way longer, and are way better and more efficient than them.

But Turn Ten keep spewing rubbish talk.

Eh, that's not such a tall order.

Having tried the game at Gamescom, I can easily say it's true even simply because of the generational gap.

That doesn't mean we'll never see other games like that when the next generation hits, but as of now, the statement holds true.

The suspensions especially feel awesome, and the cornering behavior of the cars I tried was amazing.

allformats Nobody said anything about GT....I'd expect any dev, I don't care if its a indie dev to speak confidently about his game, if he doesn't think its the best why do I want something a dev knowingly made half assed? Both companies boast about their product but when its xbox related some folks go nuts, insecure much?

I admire there passion, but when there next gen game is still comparable to a current gen game (GT6) it is a bit of a big statement. Still I can admire their passion for what they are making.

Eh, comparable how? because having tried both they do feel rather different. I'm a BIG GT fan, but there's a limit to the calculations a PS3 can do compared to a more modern machine. GT7 or whatever they'll call it on PS4 will probably be leaps and bounds beyond it. And it's the same with Forza 5 from what I experienced at least for the variables it takes in account.

cell989  +   829d ago
@ Abriael ok now youre just over hyping Forza, you do know optimization comes along way on PS3, I dont think the gap is that big as you make it out to be, the fact that Forza in a 1st generation game on new hardware and GT6 is a 4th generation game tells you that besides a few extra polygons per vehicle, no one is going to break new ground in here
Abriael  +   829d ago
@cell989: no. I'm just describing what I tried. Did you?

There's no optimization you can do to put a 7 years old machine on par with a new one. It's that simple.

Physics simulation is one of the elements that tests hardware the most. Again, it's that simple.
robotgargoyle  +   829d ago
The comparisons will be inevitable. Two rival companies, two highly rated racing series. GT6 is coming out towards the end of PS3s console cycle, and should benefit from devs being familar with it's tech. Forza 5 is a launch title made on a new console. The best titles usually arrive towards the end of a console's cycle, launch titles seem rushed and devs have not taken advantage of the hardware just yet.

That being said, Forza 5 will be one of the most polished launch games on either next gen system. GT 6 will be great too. From understanding, it's an apples to oranges scenario where no games is a clear winner. Preference is key.
JackStraw  +   829d ago
@abriael you didn't really describe anything lol. you pretty much just said "hey forza 5 is better. believe me, i tried it at gamescom."

i'm not doubting you as, i'd hope it'd be better being a next-gen game and all, just pointing out the fact.
Sayai jin  +   829d ago
It's all subjective. Your opinion counts and should be respected. Do you expect a dev to not actively promote and have confidence in their game(s). I like this kind of passion from devs...

I really do admire when Sony fans are always the first to comment on an Xbox One game especially one they have never played.

Some insecurities huh?
Spoons  +   829d ago
Funny, they care a lot more about the One than even the console they are buying.
PraxxtorCruel  +   829d ago
Damn! Talk about being a hurt over a comment like that. Who's going to buy a game where the guy behind it feels it's no good. Imagine that? The creative director talking bad about his own game? Besides he has every right to boast, the last 4 Forza games have all been a great hit amongst fans.

Insecure much? Did anyone but you even mention polyphony? People aren't allowed to speak confidently about their games now without some insecure fanboy crying foul?

Just rename yourself to all Sony please.
strifeblade  +   829d ago
You do know gran turismo 6 is going on ps3 right? you do know the first gran turismo game you will see is gran turismo 6 port on the ps4 a year later. You know in forza 5 not one car is ported from the 360 version while both gt5 and gt6 sport a full roster of upscaled car models from the ps2. Lazy much>? Look at the meta rating both forza 3 and forza 4- both arguable better than gt scored much higher than gt5. To the tune of 91 and 93 vs 85. You do the math. Do you even think for one second gt6 on ps3 can match forza 5 on x1.

yeah, there was alot classy on gt5s rele the appollogises from him for the unfinished product he has thrown at us, and yes i bought gt5 and it sucked big time, you all know it. i shit on PD

This will be one of the first true next gen experiences.
cell989  +   829d ago
"true next gen" experiences wont happen till a year from now, when devs start getting the hang of the new hardware, right now its a new playground for all devs, no such thing as true nex gen just yet
Abriael  +   829d ago
The new hardware is a PC with very little differences, on both sides.

They're all pretty used to that.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   829d ago
Exactly...give em a full year or two and we'll start seeing some truly mind-blowing games. These launch titles are just scratching the surface
JackStraw  +   829d ago
"the new hardware is a pc"

i don't know whether to laugh or cry. show me a pc with architecture like either of the new consoles.

just... stop.
thetruthx1  +   829d ago
It's going to be very difficult for any racer to top Forza with the photo realism and added immersion from the rumble triggers in the xbox one controller.

The 3 coats of paint on each car adding to the realism makes this the most impressive graphics wise and it's a simulation racing game
Sayai jin  +   829d ago
I expect this game to be top notch. Since you mentioned other racers...the next GT will be top tier also.
DigitalRaptor  +   829d ago
The game looks pretty tight, but what kind of driving enthusiast is getting immersion from rumble triggers rather than a racing wheel?
Bathyj  +   829d ago
You'd actually play this with a controller? After getting a g25 is can't go back to that
corywebb93  +   829d ago
The Forza series is the king of racing games, and the best racing series of all time. Sorry but the last gran turismo game got a 84 on metacritic, while the last forza game got a 90+

Gran turismo is done, its on a sinking ship and won't get better but worser and worser .

Rip. gran turismo.

All hail the king of racing games Forza!
DoesUs  +   829d ago
Yay! Metacritic! The general public seem not to care about Metacritic. You know, the people who actually buy these products?
ironwolf  +   829d ago
There is no such word as "worser".
DebateMaster  +   829d ago
LOL at metacritic. It doesn't prove anything true GT fans have always loved GT no matter what critics say thats why gt5 sold almost 11 million and outsold both forza 3 and 4 combined. GT will not die anytime soon because its influence keeps growing and growing. Just look at gt academy. The people who win it have gone to be pros and win actual trophies. GT even has influence with actual F1 teams and worked with the top f1 team redbull to help create the x1. If you think gt is in a sinking ship then forza's ship is alreadya t the bottom of the ocean. If these gran turismo achievements don't prove its the king then what defines a king of racing games? The people who actually race for a living and use GT for actual practice to learn tracks and the over 10 million who bought the game or the reviewers who say forza is better that have never been in a race car?

Honestly felt the physics system of both Forza 4 ( floaty ) Forza Horizon ( floatier ) were below par as compared to GranTurismo 5.

Do hope it does get better with Forza 5.
