Definitive Racing Sim of 09 G.O.T.Y 09 winner with numerous awards under it's belt. Praised by many sites as the only Racing Sim ever needed.

Christopher_Walken3301d ago

Even on thanksgiving you troll.

LeonSKennedy4Life3301d ago opposed to WHAT other Racing Sim?

Anorexorcist3301d ago

Oh yeah, it is certainly the only racing sim anyone will ever need. Hopefully in a few days they'll annouce Forza having some kind of functional steering wheel controller. Not like Gran Turismo has had anything like that in the past, right MetalGeekRising?

My God take the Microsoft Puppet Stick out of your a$$ for once!!!

Praising a game in its thread is hardly trolling but a person in threads looking to be offended and butting heads with the fans, are trolling. If you guys would just stop trolling 360 articles there would be nothing to be offended about. I see you failed to call out the PS3 fanboys in here lol.

Turn 10 is pretty solid, great job guys.

are you here to pick a fight or something?

-Alpha3301d ago

Nearly any article on GT5/Forza relates to someone eventually pulling a sucker punch until all hell breaks loose.

-Alpha3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

Your absolutely right, I DID just do that.


Ok, I edited it out :D, my bad.

The 13301d ago

Good because without shift animations this just wasn't a good game ;)

End sarcasm/

Level 50 here but only 18% done with career mode

Welcome to 2005. Gran Turismo 4 had shift animation.

The 13301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

Well lets hope GT5 has the Simulation Forza 1 had this time.


If people stayed in their proper zones/sections no one would fight. Simply giving positive feedback about a 360 game will start a fight.

Will be logging on forza after I prep the turkey.

Forza 3 was all hype. So little cars to choose from and the graphics didn't even come close to the bullshots Turn 10 have released. I'm serious, even its photomode doesn't even compare.

The 13301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

He always fails he's using his friends Gamer tag to justify his anti 360 trolling lol.

Forza 3 is a great game and more than satisfies your racing fix hell the game is addicting I can't stop playing it and I play it more than all the new games on both consoles I own.

@1.10 Why do you care about 360 related topics so much? Why do you try and give you pointless input when no one wants it? go play the PS3 and STFU

-Alpha3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

It's like the 360 fanboys that state Killzone 2 "fell off the map"

@SaaKing again

Then bash the dev, not the game. In the same way, PS3 fanboys hyped killzone 2 to the moon and back.

The sad thing is that K2 is a terrific game but some people overhyped it

StanLee3301d ago

Ah . . . Killzone 2 did fall off the map. By April I had to set my search to worldwide to find only a handful of games.

TotalPS3Fanboy3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

I guess it was not that definitive to begin with.

kalebgray923301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cant even comment on any story anymore .... good job turn 10 on fixing that issue.... i dont even have forza but will get it tomorrow for $40 .... black friday is the best


"The Definitive Driving Sim is just finally getting shift animation?"

the game's been out for over a month and you make it sound like it's been years waiting for this update.

TotalPS3Fanboy3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

you should come with shift animation to begin with. You can talk the talk, but if you ain't got nothing to back it up with, then it's just talk. Talk is cheap for them, but expensive for the gamers.

Anyway, it seems like they rush the game to the market, and it's not even throughly polish like other games.

Leathersoup3301d ago

Do you know what a simulator does? It simulates an activity.
The shifting animation is completely irrelevant to the driving of the car. You make it seem as though it ruins the game completely.

Did you know that most of the hardcore PC Simulators don't even display a steering wheel or hands on the dash? First, it's because your steering wheel controller is supposed to be what you use to steer, not the on screen displayed wheel. Second, It's not that important. It just isn't.

DelbertGrady3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

Graphics and animations is what matters in a "real" driving simulator. Nevermind physics, gameplay or customization options.

iwin863301d ago

forza 3 is by far the best racing game ever made (until now). But why does it sell so poorly ? The last NPD-sales were horrible, only 175 k And I am not even sure Turn 10 will break 3 Mio. sales.

"Why does Forza 3 suffer from poor sales ?

It's probably because it didn't came with shift animation. Many 360 gamers were very hyped for it, then they realized it's missing all the little polished things that make a great game a great game (you know, like Uncharted 2). So that's why even though they were very hyped for it, they didn't buy it. Because they realized it's just hype.

@1.24 ps3fanboy

I though you were making fun of the retarded comments and laughed because I thought it was funny THEN I realised you were being serious and laughed even harder!! Man, reading the comments on N4G is like watching skateboarders trying to pull a move only to piledrive their own nuts on a steel handrail! It's just neverending fail around here. lol

rockleex3301d ago

Yes, it would be wise not to bring up physics when talking about Forza 3.

By the way, GT5P had shift animations to begin with.

ndibu3301d ago

1 million sales in 3 weeks, how many games can boast that this year? And how many of those are console exclusive? Why does everyone run to 175k FOUR day sales and then totally ignore the MILLION it had sold by last week??
Selective reading huh?
Forza 3 has surpassed its predecessor already in terms of time it took to sell 1M. Don't shoot me but didn't it take Uncharted 2 about the same amount of time to reach that milestone? Or was it 4 weeks? I forget

Zack Sawyer3301d ago

Ha ha ha, they were hilarious. Of course though all of the PS3 fanboys will just ignore those and continue to pick out the faults in Forza 3.

Just like the crash animations they bring up all the time just because they have seen the damage model on some cars are crude like the R8, but if they have played the game they will no that is only true on some of the models. As for example on the Mercedes SL65 I smashed so many bits off it was unrecognisable and undriveable.

And how they think they know exactly how the handling, sounds and physics of everysingle car are more than the developers and experts.

TotalPS3Fanboy3300d ago (Edited 3300d ago )

Look, you can call Forza 3 sales a flop all you want, because that's true based on the sales figures. But please reframe from laughing at the sales flop of Forza 3. It will only hurt the feeling of many 360 gamers.

Nice work, Turn 10.

I'm not a racing sim fan, but I appreciate a great developer.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!!

-Alpha3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

I find the whole genre boring, but I recognize a good game/developer when I see one.


I don't really care for disagrees. They mean nothing unless someone challenges me in what I said. Any person can have an opinion but it only really matters when you can argue it.

Forza 3 is a great game, Turn 10 is a great developer group for MAKING the game.

Also, Being definitive is not defined by not having a shift animation anyway

Erotic Sheep3301d ago (Edited 3301d ago )

"but I recognize a good game/developer when I see one."

And this is probably where you're getting disagrees from. Their constant bashing and brainwashing attracted a lot of hate really..

We can all think these updates are amazing. But then again.. it also makes you think why something like a shift animation wasn't in there from the start. You know.. since it's the "definitive" racing sim this gen >___>

Edit: Yeah I agree with you on that one. I'm sure Forza 3 is a good game which will keep racing fans occupied. It's just the developer itself people have a problem with, and in all honesty they brought it on themselves.

kalebgray923301d ago

i love their developing skills but their bashing of gt5 is annoying.... just make your game

glennc3301d ago

they are just playing the fanboy game, nothing else. they didn't create the damn fanboy BS to start with they just fueled the fires a bit

It is the first driving I have put hours into. I am at level 28 at the moment in season 3. Made a few wrong choices in Season 2 and ended up having to compete in 33 races that season!

JOLLY13301d ago

2 more levels and you get a fun car! What do you think about the Reventon's gauges? I personally am a big fan!
