Forza Motorsport 6 is the new kid on the block and comes in as the king of racers leaving the likes of Project CARS and Driveclub in its wake.
'so far' this gen...this gen is nowhere near over only 2 years in and plenty more racing games to come Well done turn 10
which is why competition is key.
Yeah its been two years with Playground games and Turn 10 delivering the best racing games. This will continue as this generation moves forward.
This will continue until the real king of the genre returns.
@nX yes when a new Burnout game comes it will be king.
Still many great and innovative racing games to come I'm sure but as thing stand right now, Forza 6 is king.
I TOTALLY disagree! We are talking about a SIM racer. Forza cannot be king until it has dynamic lighting, dynamic weather and dynamic day/night cycle. Turn 10 cut corners! You people, as gamers agree with this practice?!! We are paying $60 for a game, wityo our hard worked money. Wouldn't you like to have the best production value from a game? You are praising Turn 10 for what? What they basically did with Forza 6 was to take Forza 5 and add some tracks, cars and 6-7 tracks that could be played in rain OR night (they cannot be played together). At least Project Cars has ALL the features that a SIM racing game should have! Thus Forza 6 cannot be compared with Project Cars due to the LACK of features. GT5 a last gen game has more features than Forza 6. So NO, Forza 6 cannot be seen as king of racing games. In addition, the author did a comparison with the X1 version of Project Cars. He should have made a comparison with the PS4 version of PC, which is 1080pp.
That has already been done and FMS6 still kicks butt there too. Just give it up my friend. There really is nothing on the PS4 that can touch FMS6 at the moment. Wait for GT7 and then you may have something to show. As of right now its best to move on to a different topic. http://n4g.com/news/1792573...
100% agree. ProjectCARS on PS4 is the best racing game I've ever played and I've played damn near every racing game there is.
"Forza cannot be king until it has dynamic lighting, dynamic weather and dynamic day/night cycle." Typical desperate comment. Find small things that a game is missing and treat them as if they are the most important features in the game in order to downplay it. I see you keep spreading the same BS over and over. I can't believe that a successful Xbox One Game makes you feel so threatened and insecure. Dynamic lighting - who cares?? How much does the sun move in the sky over the course of a 5-10 minute race? Dynamic day/night cycle - who cares?? Unless of course you are going to sit in front of your console for 8-12 hours STRAIGHT playing ONE race. Perhaps you think it's realistic for it to be bright and sunny one minute, pouring rain the next, then dark of night at the end. Since you keep mentioning GT5, what about GT5's damage system that didn't take full effect until level 20. Does a car crashing into a wall at the end of a career do more damage than a crash at the beginning? Apparently that's what "realism" is to you. Your level of hypocrisy is absolutely staggering. You are nothing more than a typical "Sony is perfect and MS is always wrong" hater.
so basically you havn't even played forza 6, because if you had you would know it is without a shadow of doubt the best racing game. pretty much every single review of the game backs this up. dynamic weather makes sense in a game like horizon but why in motorsport the average race only lasts 5 min how much is the weather going to change in that time. they instead spent thier time doing new things that actually affect the dynamic of the race like 3d puddles
Yep, Forza 6 is in a league of its own
project cars is the worst game I have purchased or played this generation
i agree, worst career mode ever.
Yeah career mode in Project Cars is a bit of a pile of poop.
Yea, game is pretty much unplayable with controller, really good with a wheel, but I'm not buying a new wheel for my ps4 yet. Its clear to me they used the same assets from shift 2 judging by the same stupid input delay with the controller. But regarding actual gameplay, it's not hard to beat this game as best sim- racer this gen. F6 has much more content.
I thought it was me when I was playing PC. Could not keep the car on the road with a controller, and like u not buying a wheel.
ProjectCARS is amazing once YOU SET UP THE CONTROLLER. It's a Sim game, not a hand holdy baby game.... Forza6 will damn near play itself with its steering assists, throttle assists, stability control and traction controls. When did learning how to properly play a game become bad? People are trying to fault ProjectCARS for their lack of learning how to play the game.
I set up the controller, plenty of times. But the fact of the matter is, a car shouldn't be harder to control with a controller than with a wheel. I have no problems playing this game with a wheel on my pc. Its a great simulator. Pcars has some those assists too, luckily in both you can turn them off. I haven't played Forza 6, but I have a friend who knows what to look for in a sim and he told me f6 is just as good as AC and Pcars in that department for the most part.
But teh graphics! That's how it turns out when all n4g community cares for is how the game looks on still shots. Graphics hype sold it. Forza horizon beats every single racing game in terms of content / gameplay (hundreds of cars, tons of modifications, amazing online gameplay, thousands of miles of drivable area).
I really did not like DC or PC, but loving Forza6.
I agreed because I think its dumb to hit the disagree button when another gamer here states what his personal favourite games are.
I disagreed with you because I agreed with you.
I agree with that, Hoffmann..
Yes yes it is. There is no doubt about it, even the usual better is subjective or objective comments are irrelevant at this point. Forza is king today
I concur, nothing comes close to Forza 6 as far as the complete racing experience Unique car selection: check Great gameplay: check Great graphics: check Flawless framerate: check Great presentation: check Fun to play: check
graphics aren't great check! they are only passable!
all 3 games in this comparison are great racing games, i have project cars on xbox one and drive club on ps4 (obviously), and will be purchasing forza 6 soon then GT7 when that comes out.
Gt7 is coming I didn't here anything
Kaz said on numerous occasions they have been working on GT7. So yea, it is indeed coming. It needs to release next year for sure. We don't want another 5 year wait,
Next year has been confirmed by it's producer.
Can I get a link on 2016? Id rather 2017, I hear there also still using PS2 models which is unacceptable to use models from of 15 year old console.
@Waluigi Not set in stone yet. But, they have been putting a whole lot of work into these older vehicles. More and more will be upgraded at launch and continued to be upgraded through updates. There are still hundreds of up to date models. I hope they crack down on these cars. I wonder if one a week is realistic for all the details they put into model accuracy.
I like both DriveClub and Mario Kart 8 a lot lot more than Forza or Project Cars.
I am going assume you own them all. I will also assume that you don't care for realistic driving .
Hoffman does not own an xbox one. He just likes to comment in xbox threads for whatever reason. Nothing wrong with hat but...it is what it is...
I haven't played Mario Kart 8 since I don't want a Wii U, but I thoroughly enjoy DriveClub for its exciting, hyper racing. So much fun! I've played over 10hrs of Forza 6 with no assists and it's still too easy for a sim IMO. But, I'm likely to get disagrees for having the audacity to express an opinion /
The PS guy, You told me you won't be getting your XB1 until November so how did you managed to played Forza 6 for 10 hours? Anyhow, if that is your assessment, then that is that as people can definitely have their own opinion. Forza 6 is definitely the best racer for me with Forza Horizon 2 comes in a close second.
LOL @Rookie_Monster it must be in his dreams.
@rookie Well done for calling him out on that one haha. I hate it when people lie so blatantly like that. Anyway, I don't have an Xbox One, I have Driveclub and Project Cars but to me it's clear to see that Forza is head and shoulders above the rest at the moment. Sony really need to step it up a gear with Gran Turismo.
Good job @Rookie. I knew he was lying. No way Forza is easy with all assists off, its brutal. All assists off with max drivatar difficulty is borderline insanity.
You know guys he could have played it on a friends xboxone or some family members xboxone. I don't have a xboxone either, but have played some games on it at my nephews house, he has one. Think aobut it, its possible, before just calling someone out.
Well for me Forza Horizon 2 was the best racer this gen before Forza 6, each to their own I guess. Great for Xbox gamers though as the Forza franchise goes from strength to strength.
forza horizon 2 is a fantastic game and is what test drive unlimited should have been imo, very addictive gameplay and reminds me alot of dirt 2 (another fantastic game)
The king has return bring thy offerings. Forza 6 shall accept them all.
Forza 6 is okay, but Project cars is the better game IMO. Driveclub is an arcade racer, so comparisons are futile, but since so many dumb articles like to compare visual effects, DC does weather like no other game, smoking Forza 6 in that regard /
project cars is a really good racer and takes me back to the Toca days on ps1 ps2 and xbox, even tho it has its flaws on consoles it still brings a very addictive experience (currently on season 6) same as driveclub bought a ps4 a couple of weeks ago and been getting right into that game and almost finished the driveclub tour (trying to complete every star) as frustrating as it is lol.
Forza 6 deserves it
But drive club will sell way more. Forza never sells that great
How u figure that forza 6 was released last week on top of that isn't Sony giving a free version of driveclub away
Forza isn't a console-seller, despite what many on here will tell you; The series as whole has shipped a few million more than one entry in the GT franchise, so there's that. As far as DC goes, it reached 2-3 million sales in early spring, much sooner than the promised PlayStation Plus free version was even released(never mind that this version of the game isn't counted, as it's digital). If Forza manages to sale as much as Gran Turismo 6(lowest selling main-entry of GT), which sold 2.67 million units as of Summer 2015, then it will have been a great success by Turn 10 and FM standards, not just because the series usually doesn't sell well but also because GT6 is ironically the highest selling racing game since it's release.
Xfugo I love racing games I own most of and can tell you that the forza series is the best racing games out there not sure about the sells thing I'm sure xbox fans a little more cautious about buying games than Playstation fans if you slap the word exclusive on a Playstation Game and Sony knows this it's a guarantee sell so my point is Driveclub is a beautiful game maybe the best I seen so far but the game controls like ass and I just can't get into it is it anyway I can adjust the controls or the difficulty
@xKugo you're trying too hard. Forza 6 is king deal with it!
Nice try but your wrong, Forza 5 and Horizon 2 have sold 7 million units together. How many times do I have to tell people this? Did you forget when Forza 3 and 4 pushed well over 5 million copies, EACH?
Oh but wait, I thought Horizon was a completely different series to Forza Motorsports? Because if that's not the case and they are technically the same, then that would make Forza the most milked franchise by far this generation. But whatever the case, where are you getting those numbers from? The last thing released about Forza 5, relative to sales, was that it passed the 1 million milestone and that was an entire 6 MONTHS after it released. Where are you getting the numbers for FH2? They haven't even come out and said it passed the 1 million mark. Also last time I checked, Forza 3 had sold 4.03 million LTD sales and I haven't seen any evidence to prove that Forza 4, which released only a year after 3, sold more than that.
"Oh but wait, I thought Horizon was a completely different series to Forza Motorsports? Because if that's not the case and they are technically the same, then that would make Forza the most milked franchise by far this generation." Being a PSfanboy is no excuse for being ignorant...you know damn well that FH and FM are two seperate games under the same 'Forza' banner. You know that one is a 60FPS track based sim and the other is a 30FPS open world racer...yet you CHOOSE to forget this when talking such nonsense. Why should your comments in this thread even be taken seriously when your points are baseless to begin with? You just 'hypothesized' that they are the same game just because the sales of the two were combined..... as a franchise...purely to TRY and make a counterpoint to waluigi...but you fell flat on your face , trying to be smart...SMH...
Forza always sells 2 to 6 million everytime.So i'm not sure where your getting forza doesn't sell that great?As far as driveclub it's sold 2 million and the only reason it did is where sony gave the game away for free to PS members lol
Well, Forza 6 is the king of racer. And NFS, let's wait and see.
Since when was Project Cars the greatest racer of this gen? It seemed to get mixed reviews
Hmm. 9s and 10s. Yea, pretty mixed. lol
"Hmm. 9s and 10s. Yea, pretty mixed." ..and some 6s..and some 3s http://www.gamenguide.com/a... oh...and some 7s and 8s http://www.gamespot.com/art... so yeah...pretty mixed, dont you think?....lol
@FlexLuger I thought uth11 was talking about Forza 6.
Project Cars is 83 on Metacritic. http://www.metacritic.com/g... 11 of 37 reviews gave it 9 or more. No perfect scores. Nothing above 93 actually. It is a good game, I wouldn't call the scores mixed though as most scores were 8 to 9.3... 33 of 37 reviews were within 15 points of the highest review. I agree it is not mixed, but 10's are an exaggeration.
@Neogamer Thought that uth11 was talking about Forza 6
lol project cars s#!T on Forza 6 in every way https://www.youtube.com/wat...
If video games could dream
I don't know how we're already proclaiming a best racer for this gen, when GT7 isn't even out. Also, Forza 6 definitely isn't the last Forza, either. I would hope Turn 10 is going to make something better down the road. That's usually how sequels are supposed to work.
Obviously its the best as of today. No one can predict the future, come on now... Common sense.
