"The design of Forza is that you can play it how you want."
Of the 360's launch games, I'd say Condemned has stood the test of time the best. I think DR3 will be the one we look back on most fondly of the Xbox One's launch line-up.
CoD 2 too
Wasn't Gears of War a launch title? If so, that is the game that defined 360 and is still the most memorable. @ abzdine: Don't be too hasty on your decision. Just like that game snuck up on you, one of these game, that you have not played yet, might do the same.
sure, i was amazed one day i went to a gaming shop and it was running there in 2006. I loved the blur effect but i never heard of that game at that time. But the line up of xbox one no games really blows my mind.
no gears came after launch , that game seriously ushered in next gen graphics .
Yeah, despite having a few gripes with it, Condemned is really still showing how to keep first-person melee-focused combat tense and interesting. I'd still give best 360 launch title to Call of Duty 2 though. It just felt like everything it succeeded at everything it was trying to accomplish: pure WWII action focus layered with open areas and some cinematic sequences. The formula's definitely improved since but 2's remains my favorite.
Four more days I get my hands on Forza woot.
Forza will be the go to game, so happy it's launching with this game, a game i can sink tons of hours into!
x1 has the best lineup outta the original xbox and 360 that outstanding
Was Halo not a launch title?
If the design of Forza was play it how you want they probably were not thinking of fans with racingwheels. Honestly, how can you choose this slogan when Microsoft made the official Forza wheel useless with your game? Is there anybody in here who's going to spend around a thousand bucks next week to play Forza 5 with a wheel? Juct curious, it's one of the most important aspects of a racingsim, but I never hear anyone about it.
id say get a ps3 for 200 gran turismo 6 for 60 and you can get the best racing wheels only for ps3 for about 100 -200 the driving force gt or gt27 which you can use on ps4 for gt7 and project cars and it works on pc too
I know:) I bought a PS3 for 189 euros last september, old fattie died a horrible death, one week before GTA. I have a Logitech GT wheel, good and affordable, mounted on a Fanatec wheelstand. Great combo and I'm glad I can use it for DriveClub in a few months and GT6 in a few weeks. And that's it: I'd rather play another GT game on current gen with support for my own wheel than a nextgen Forza where you have to buy everything again. Wheelsupport, Nurburgring, day&night cycle. I would have loved to experience it on nextgen console, but I'll have to wait a few years. Hopefully Project Cars has all of that, before GT7.
I thought this part was interesting about Driveatars: "We have incredible diversity in our community, and most gamers go, like you were asking about Need For Speed versus Forza, you're thinking about a narrow band of gamers when you're thinking about it in this realm, from five-year-olds to fifty-five-year-olds and with a third being women. So, if you map out the lap time that you did versus the number of people who do something near that lap time, it's a bell curve. And you're going to fall somewhere on the front or the back of the bell curve." "When you're talking about five-year-old kids, their lap times are much slower. And when you're talking about a fifty-five-year-old, near-professional or semi-professional race car driver, or one of the professional racing car drivers that use our game to train, they're on the opposite side - the bleeding edge." "So, when you're picking Drivatars, you're basically picking a percentage of that population. There are seven Drivatars, so we have the whole population divided into seven groups. When you choose average, you're choosing just slightly on the back side of the bell curve."
