Its more like the top ten most retarded games of all time. The fist 4 spots should be GT 1,2,3, and 4.

Well Well. This post started in the PS3 section and now has been move to the 360! Does this list not relate to the PS3 now?

Without a doubt any genuine gamer would have at least four of the GT series in the Top 10.

Good list... full of different styles of racing games and while the next GT will be the racing game to get in 2008... PGR4 is the racing game of 2007

I'm a fan of Forza and PGR but to list them and not list any of the Gran Turismo Series!? WTF! Is it me or does anyone else get the heavy stench of "PAYOLA"?

"Forza 2 the new King of the Genre"? PGR4 in at No. 1? Pull the other one. DIRT is better than both of them. After that list Tom Orry has absolutely no credibility.

"does anyone else get the heavy stench of "PAYOLA"? "

I doubt anyone would bother bribing Pro-G/VideoGamer.com. It's just not a big enough site.

By the looks of it, they've got a few ads they need to serve so to get the page-impressions-per-visit count up, they'd clobbered together a five page list of racing games and linked to the reviews to get people clicking.

It probably took them no more than half an hour to do, and it shows (even if I agree with a few of his selections). The best thing you can do is not click it.

"After that list Tom Orry has absolutely no credibility."

He never had any to start with.

Forza2 did`n live up to many people`s expectation! It sure dissapointed me! It does not deserve 2nd place. GT3 at its time was incredibly good, was The King, and it set the benchmark for the racing genre. Forza2 did nothing except a slight improvment from Forza1 whille GT series always broke records and is not even in the top 10! And TDU is! Man, get outta here with that bs.

but GT only broke sales records, nothing else. Does that mean it's the better game. Rhetorical question. The better thing to ask yourself is what has GT done innovative lately, since it is the seasoned game.

Come on now, Forza series is only two games old, but yet has more innovation than a game that is about to release it's fifth incarnation. GT brings a new staple in graphics and car models.... That's it, the cars mainly all feel the same within their respective genres. Sorry, but that's just how i feel. Just like you expressed your opinion, now so have i.

They seem to be judging the race feeling in the games.

If you just want pure adrenaline racing with excellent controls and great sense of speed I'd pick PGR4 over the rest as well.
