360 Magazine: It’s time to stop the arguing, put down the knife and get off that ledge; we’ve got the definitive list of driving games right here. The cream of the 360′s four (and sometimes two) wheeled crop…
turn 10 better not be claiming DEFINITIVE again. other than that DIRT 2,PROJECT GOTHAM,BURNOUT PARADISE,F1 2010 ONLY ONES LOOK GOOD.
Those were the days...
My top would have to be Forza Motorsport 3 Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Midnight Club: LA Blur
"We’re aware of the whole arcade-versus-sim personal preference arguathon and could talk endlessly about it. But all too often the primary reason offered to explain a dislike of the ‘sim’ side of racing is that the games have no heart. That they lack a soul. Forza’s soul is its community; a beating heart of shared love for cars and racing culture with artistic as well as enterprising merit. Which would under normal circumstances be good enough, but it also happens to be the best racing experience ever created. Forza has its main PS3 competitor naked, on a leash, and licking old oil off the pit lane." Completely agree with them.
I strongly agreed until it mentioned GT5... it acts as if GT5 is a horrible game; which I do disagree with.
Polyphony dropped the ball on GT5, no one can argue against that or defend against that.
@FordGtGuy lmao so sad.
360's Top 10 DEFINITIVE Racing games? Definitive? Most of these games are mutiplat. "Forza has its main PS3 competitor naked, on a leash, and licking old oil off the pit lane." FLAMEBAIT!!! Considering that this is a 360 only article it was expected though.
"Definitive? Most of these games are mutiplat" And ? definitive doesn't mean exclusive.
It says 360's, meaning it belongs to the 360. If that the case then we could just make a PS3's most definite game and just change Forza to GT5 and have a flamebait statement like "GT5, the best racing sim to date, is really putting the pressure on Forza 4 to either be the best or flop. I'm going with flop as 2 years of development can match 5." Point is why not make a Top 10 definitive racing games period. No PS3's or 360's.
Hmm...you're trying way too hard... Can you play these games on 360 ? yes. Period. Therefore, they belong on a "360's Top 10 definitive racing games" Also "360magazine.co.uk" ....
Why do they have to be exclusive? They're still 360 games.
Not exactly subtle hyperbole. It's a bit amusing though when certain people like the writer of this article come up with the most ridiculous lines to try to convince themselves that Gran Turismo is absolutely NO COMPETITION for Forza. If you really think so, then you've never played any installment of the Gran Turismo franchise or are just delusional...or are just one sad S.O.B.
I really can't respect this series since the developers insult me by altering real world courses to make it easier for people to pass in the game. As a racing fan of many cars series including formula 1, le mans I cannot overlook that. This is after playing the first 2 games
I woulda put NFS and Grid above Project Gotham and Forza. But they are more arcadey and designed to be instantly fun.
