Forza 3 Better Than GT 5, Says Vote

Sometimes the gaming industry baffles me, and today seems like it's going to be one of those days, and it's a three pronged approach to the type of journalism dragging everyone down.


Seems CNET have closed the poll after getting wind of Turn 10's offer of DLC for votes.

Wow! A free unicorn will definately distort my judgement and make me believe it's a better game than GT5.

AssassinHD5228d ago

It may not distort your judgment, but it could certainly distort a person's vote. Not that it matters to me. I know which one I am buying.

GWAVE5228d ago

So a "vote" says that Forza 3 (an unreleased game) is better than GT5 (also an unreleased game). Hmmmm.

Well shoot DARN! I better believe it, because I'm a stereotypical American internet-user who believes everything I read and I'm frightened to not match my own opinion with the popular opinion.

I heard of this other "vote" that says the Gran Turismo series is better than the Forza series, and when I say "vote" what I'm really talking about is "sales", because that's the only vote that matters.

Beast_Master5228d ago

Yes neither game is released yet but the information we have before hand does give us an indication of which game will be better.
Ok without even naming the game please vote for which one you think will be better.

Game 1
Runs in native 1080p at 60 fps.
Has over 80 tracks and 800 cars.
in addition to racing sim, also offers NASCAR, F1, Offroad.
16 player races.
race against up to 30+ cars at once

Game 2

over 100 cars
dozens of tracks
8 car races
doesn't run in 1080 or 60 fps
fanbase exist based on Free pack in with console.

Please tell me you can't see clear as day which game you think will be better. I get that you haven't played either, but seriously is this even debateable?

It obviously said Che Team Forza (original op) is Turn 10 Community Manager, so even if somebody will argue otherwise, this resulted in 103 pages of the thread on people that voted wanting that limited Unicorn car.

This story gets approved while:
reporting on what happened at Forza forum got a fail. Even if a moderator at N4G is a Forza fan, aren't they supposed to be fair?

dalibor5228d ago (Edited 5228d ago )

Same here, a voting poll isn't going to do a damn thing about me purchasing GT5. I have Motorstorm for offroading, soon GT for simulation & now all I need is Road Rash for some chain swinging mayhem. Its all preference as whether which game is better.. GT or Forza. Or I could even state.. 360 or Ps3. Or even lol a girl with a mustache or hairy armpits.

OMG Turn 10 is the douchiest f'in developer out there. I was so annoyed already by how they simply couldnt stop bragging about their game. And now they start bribing people to vote for their game in the most stupid poll of the century? Hey CNET you are r'tards for making this vote. But your r'tardedness is toppled by Turn 10. Christ, i was actually thinking about buying this game. Now there is no way whatsoever i will ever pay for any game Turn 10 makes(i might pirate their games though, serves them right).

You know i really want to like Microsoft, but somehow it seems like they only surround themselves by douchebags. Not only is their leaders always picking on the competition, but their developers are doing the f'in same thing. Even Valve which is one of the few third party developers out there with a close releationship with Microsoft is starting to piss me off. They are all so f'in smug. So elitist and so coc'ky. Do you really not want me to buy your products? Why do you have to be so distasteful?

Lamoo5228d ago

Forza Motorsport 3:

400 cars
100 tracks
online auction
customization down to the bone

popup5227d ago

The score is the other way round now. Either way, it does not effect the outcome as to which game is really the closest thing to the real thing.

Most people who play the game have never even been on a track and even those that have are pretty ignorant as to how to get a good lap but it sure is good fun pretending!

Come on now... go back and re-read the comments in the many posts on this site about the exclusive PS3 games that weren't released yet or haven't been released yet.

Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 for examples...

If it makes you feel better --> here: http://news.teamxbox.com/xb...

According to Buzz Study, a firm dedicated to monitoring and analyzing trends in Web chatter, has analyzed the most discussed announcements from E3 2009. They scan the Interwebz, from news articles and blog entries to forum posts and YouTube videos. The results are in and the clear winner of E3 2009 in terms of generating the most buzz has emerged.

Grand Turismo 5 generated more 'buzz' then Forza 3

Thugbot1875227d ago

The way I look at it is competition is good. I'm not here to say who is better but I will say both are obviously at the top of the list. So in the spirit of true competition this rivalry will advance the genre and each franchise, in the end gamers will win.

LoVeRSaMa5227d ago

Vote must have been done in USA by Xbox only owners..

Sarcasm5227d ago

"Editor's note: After numerous complaints of cheating and in-game content being offered as payment for votes, I've decided to close the poll. Way to ruin the fun for the rest of us, guys."

Good job Cnet, the hilarious part is that GT5 was still ahead.

JohnnyBadfinger5227d ago

but the bribe doesn't stop PS3 fans from voting does it and its only bribing Forza fans not xbox fans.
I have an xbox 360 and will flat out say i would rather play GT5 because its the FIRST real drive sim that is and was any good. But if only it online community was as good as Forzas

Sorry Forza you will never take the lead from GT.

and ive said it before GT5 might be the only game PS3 has that could turn me over to a purchase, all other PS3 exclusives im not interested in but GT5, i gotta say "F*** YEAH!"

iANONYMOUS5227d ago

It's not a bribe,
Whats the point of posting it at Forza forum?
The only people who visit it was Forza player and 360 owner,
Whats the point of Forza fans be voting GT5?
What would people like GT fans get if they vote?
A free car? So I called that Bribing a Fluke.
That's not bribing if only certain people will get the prize,
People who dont own Forza 2 wont get the car.Fact.

That poll,
Was having an error,
I have no idea how, or why, but I get to vote as many times as I want, until there's an error, vote stills count tho, 20-30 or something.
To be sure, most PS3 owner will be likely to vote eventhough they dont own GT5:P, moron.
They are o

About T10 being Arrogant?
Well, it is arrogant, so what?
It proved to be better than any racing games that is out.Fact.
GT5 isnt out, GT5:P was a demo, NFS was BS.
Have you heard before about Sony bragging about "they are the Best game developer ever" not long ago,
Epic developer replied , that's BS!.
I heard no complaint from Sony fanboys about that have we?
I got prove, it's on EGM magazine.

You aint gonna buy it?
Sure you wont,
Another millions of people will.

@LiQuiFiedArt 1.4

You aint gonna buy?
Do you even own a 360?

At least We got a released date on Forza 3, unlike on the other great games..
What? It's coming out when? Oh wai-

GT5 isnt out yet, GT5:P isnt GT5,
So how did you all GT fans know it will be better?
Forza 2 is out, test and reviewed.
Forza 3 beta is out for certain lucky Busted people, they vote better!

caladbolg7775227d ago (Edited 5227d ago )

Wow. Funny stuff.


The least CNET could have done was close the poll when Forza 3 was winning. The T10 community managers went through all the trouble to bribe people to vote for Forza and STILL ended up losing in the poll. That's Kharma.

@iANONYMOUS: Not bribing? Let's imagine that you and I are in the same class. We're voting for class president next week. It's me VS Bobby McGee. I say to you, "Vote for me instead of Bobby next week and I'll give you a nickel." Next week rolls around and you vote for me. I give you a nickel.

That's called BRIBING, chucklenuts.

iANONYMOUS5227d ago (Edited 5227d ago )

It's not bribing mate.
The one who will get this is Forza fans.
Try to think for a while,
Whats the point of them voting for GT?
Not only they help to vote, they get a free car GAME in return.
It's like a some kind of bonus.

Who spread this stuff anyway?
I thought it was post at Forza forum, which extreme PS3 fanboys are too desperate to spread it? nevertheless to visit forza forum.

What kind of bribing is giving a free car?
What is this? madness?
I know you are jealous for not getting a free car for
*cough* GT5:P demo *cough*

Grandizer5227d ago

actually, I can see Forza 3's trailer is more compelling than GT5's.

The graphics are slightly better on GT5 but F3 shows compelling gameplay where GT5 shows cars looping...

I am not a fan of racing sims and I am much more likely to enjoy games like Blur or ModNation than F3 and GT5.

And Nascar >

animboo5227d ago (Edited 5227d ago )

no matter how you sugarcoat it, bribing is still bribing
