And if you own both consoles, play both. They are both great games.
I played GT5 all day today and two days ago I was pecking away at my event list on Forza 3. Not trying to win or lose points with anyone here but merely stating the truth. These articles are not written by gamers but attention seeking whores looking for hits. Gamers play games, fanboys rant and rave.
Wouldn't be surprised if Turn10 bribed some more people to vote for Forza in this poll like they did that one time. :D
Forza 3 or GT5? For me, neither, 'cause I don't enjoy racing games. Opinions!
wow, i respect that comment out of you!!
Neither cuz their so boring
If they are so boring to you than why are you here posting under this article? Yeah that makes sense. /s
I prefer GT5, but both are very good games for fans of cars. I can just buy both since I own both a PS3 and 360. I'm glad I don't really have to choose between them. Competition should bring out the best in both developers (but unfortunately the worst in fanboys).
but it isn't a sim. Forza 3's tracks are inaccurate by choice. Turn10 intentionally changed track dimensions to make it more "fun." Forza 3's driving physics are somewhat arcadey as well and lacks the nuance and subtle feel of a true sim. Forza 3's crashes do not feature real time deformation. They simply swap out sections of car geometry and textures.
Been playing this game nonstop for the past week Oh My God, really didn't try Endurance Races before but Dam they are long. The first one took me 1hour 45 Min. Does anyone know if they literally want you to drive 24hr on Nurburgring???
Nitrowolf YES. Endurance seperates the Lovers and the Likers.
@MariaHelFutura oh man My PS3 is gonna be on for a while then. Now i wish they added a save state mode so that when i go to school for 2 hours i don't need to leave the system on.
I love GT5. I could never get into Forza, the driving always just felt off. I'm not one to hate on Forza but I do prefer GT. I got my b-specs running right now. Gotta get me some more premium cars :)
GT5 is definitely more diverse than Forza 3. I spent the whole day today just Rally racing and tomorrow I am going to break out the Formula cars.
honest, don't buy Ferarri F1s. u can't use them in Spec A/B.
GT5 for gameplay absolutely but Forza for overall graphics. I find the shadow jaggies in GT5 too distracting to let it pass. The models are great but the shadows just ruin it for me :(. Anyone else finding this or heard of an update to fix it?
Frank did you read the article? Maybe you should read it first before you pass judgment.
I love how you always get defensive when people disagree with your articles. I read it. But do we need another article like this? BTW some dude on your site in the comments section who said that "Forza's graphics are goood and GT5's aren't" has a spam link in his comment. Thought you should know... EDIT: At below....No it's not a crime. I voted GT5...lol.. But I am still going to give you some sh*t about it...
I'm not defensive about anything I post, we all have our own opinion and I just wanted to hear everyone else. Its just an article that I wanted to shed my views on. And I wanted to see what everyone else has to say. Is it a crime?
LOL I can't get mad at that I have tough skin I can handle any criticism.
Don't let the teen titians aka "Sony Defense Force" get to you dude. Any even remote crticisim towards the PS3 will get you to one bubble within a weeks time. They should rename the site N4PS3fans. As I've already said, Forza 3 for me & good article from GamersTVChannel.
I bet most of the people who vote dont even like driving sims and will do so because of brand loyalty to the consoles
haha thats so true!! i don't like sim racers at all. i bought gt5 and its cool but not my taste. i only have 1 friend that likes sim racers.
GT just now doing stuff Forza 1 did 5 years ago. just saying edit: Damage Forza Motorsport (1) is also notable for its ability to realistically model damage to cars, from both a cosmetic and a performance standpoint, which was (and still is) a very impressive feat in terms of acquiring the licenses for the 200+ cars. Customization One feature is the ability to change the look of your car, from changing the color to applying decals. The tool set is somewhat difficult to use for novices, but when used properly it is possible to create some very striking designs. Physics engine One of the game's most-lauded features is its physics engine. Like any racing simulator, Forza Motorsport calculates a car's performance in real time using physical data (for example, the weight of a car's engine, its drag coefficient, etc.). The result is a driving game that many believe matches closely with real life. suggested line Forza has a handy "suggested line" feature that is one of the slickest innovations in racing games to come along in a long time. When activated, the suggested line acts as a dynamic tutor that demonstrates the line over which to drive, as well as how much gas or brake pressure to apply at any corner on a track. Because the suggested line is dynamic, it changes depending on the car you're in and the speed at which you are traveling. i would go on but its pointless now
Forza 3 is just now doing stuff GT4 did 7 years ago. just saying EDIT: You first :D
that is/? edit yeah cuzz gt was the first ever racing game and i love how sony fans wanna play the sale's game now
You do realise that Forza's core game-play elements are ripped exactly from the original Gran Turismo? You know, win races, complete events, get awarded cars? Just lately they announced Top Gear for Forza while GT5 had it announced ages ago. Gran Turismo games sell copies in which Forza can only dream of.How much did the last one sell? Cos I'm betting GT5 outsold it on its launch day. Are all forza fanboys this desperate? To be honest, I didn't even know it even had any fans. lol Edit: So your saying Forza has to copy? Cos PD innovated and Turn 10 couldn't take the chance and create their own game (PC/PS1/N64 for example)? Everything you stated in your first post is laughable, so many other games introduced way before MS bought T10. I won't even bother refuting it. And what's wrong with the sales game? It's the only thing you 360 fanboys understand. Now you're trying to weasel out when it's not in your favour? How pathetic. lol
I'm going with Meta critic on this one.
Sure, whatever float your boat. Here's your realistic damage and physics: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Here´s my response http://www.youtube.com/watc... For 5 years turn10 would do better than this.
Because we all know that crash physics are all it takes to make a game. /s And we also forgot the games PD did release during that 5 years. Also while creating the engine for the game. Turn 10 had 5 years with their Forza franchise, and I'd still tip my hat to GT5, because its doing just that much more to make it the better racer for me. Not every game can be pumped out in a year or two. Considering the work PD has done on GT5 and its engine I am pleased. The game is great, runs great, and is entertaining. It does feel a tad bit incomplete, but patches are fixing that thankfully. As a gamer I'll take what I can get, and what I could have got was Forza 2, or GT5, I chose GT5 and don't regret it. I'll also keep my eye on Forza 3 for you Lugia, just to see how much better Turn10 does with their next game, what, more than 6 or 7 years for a franchise? (Considering initial development of Forza 1) I don't have anything against Forza, but don't assume another developer would have done better when they had their chance. EDIT: Almost forgot, Happy New Year to you.
All you have to do is pay attention to accuracy of the tracks and the cars and you can see what I love about GT5 so much. There are some things that bother be outside the gameplay, but once a race starts I'm completely locked in.
Turn 10 has over 200 employees, over 60% of there cars are outsourced for modeling to a company in India, another company in the Middle East did all the tuning parts, wheels, and a few tracks, and they re-use car models from previous Forzas. That's the only reason they can pump out games so fast. Polyphony Digital only has a team of a little more than 100 people.
@Lucia 4000 funny turn 10 had 2 games during those 5 year yet not much improvement that's where your argument fail
Forza 3 only has 8 cars on a track at once, no weather effects, no night racing, no rally racing, no kart racing, the cars look pathetic in comparison to GT5's premium cars, runs in 720P and has 2d trees AND has repeated bushes/repetitive environments and it's on 2 discs. GT5 wins.
"Forza Motorsport (1) is also notable for its ability to realistically model damage to cars, from both a cosmetic and a performance standpoint" Because crashing the front, then having the entire car, including the back and sides, look like it was scraped by sandpaper is soooo realistic... "One of the game's most-lauded features is its physics engine. Like any racing simulator, Forza Motorsport calculates a car's performance in real time using physical data (for example, the weight of a car's engine, its drag coefficient, etc.). The result is a driving game that many believe matches closely with real life." Forza's physics are nowhere near realistic. Especially with that permanent active steering assist which cannot be turned off. They tried to cater waay too much to the casuals (widening the normally narrow Nordschleife, rewind, ect.). A comparison using the same cars at Laguna Seca between GT5 and Forza 3 had at most, a 10 second difference in laptimes. How can you explain that? "Forza has a handy "suggested line" feature that is one of the slickest innovations in racing games to come along in a long time." Once again... if you're casual. The driving line is extremely distracting. And it's never as good as just using basic cornering principles and using your own line. Even if you're not confident without the driving line, just turn it off. You really realize how easy it is to determine braking and turning points when you don't have a giant line covering the screen. What the driving line does is cause you to become overdependent on it, and never really improve. Once again, a very casual feature that ruins racing games. I hate how most of them have it on by default too.
Haha why would I want to draw a pictures of cocks on my cars. Customisation is not important in a sim. Forza 3 just has it for a way to make in standout cuz without it it would be a blatant GT5 rip off. Physics engine. Yeah right. Everyone whose ever driven a car before knows Forza has a bad physics engine compared to GT5. Also damage is pre recorded in Forza so a crash will always look the same but dynamic in GT5. Braking Line....wow Forza fans are getting desperate.
both games are good
They are both good but 1 is better and that is GT5. I own them both and GT5 even feels more real. I have all the cars in GT5 that I have in Forza 3 with both discs and DLC. GT5 also has course maker, epic go karts(I like go karts), greater damage(when you get at expert series).
Nice Helmet, haha. =P
GT paved the way for Forza
GT demands respect biotccccccch!
did you just call yourself a biotccccccch?!
IT appears so >.> Too much to drink?
GT5 It does not simulate driving but it comes much closer than it's competitor. Nurbur is beautiful.Watch them ripples!!
only in one game i can have full customization and can make whatever logo i want or jut buy it from other player.....forza 3 is my pick
"...and can make whatever logo i want or jut buy it from other player...." How ability to make custom logo make game, that suppose be driving simulator, better? Shouldn't you compare features like - car models, - number of tracks, how close they are to real ones - weather simulation - physics and damage - ... and so on If you want customized logo you should definitely get "ModNation Racers"
Forza 3 dominates all those categories minus the Weather effects. So looks like not only does Forza dominate in car models, number of tracks, physics and damage but it also allows users to personalize their cars as well which many people like to do in the REAL WORLD. Lets not even get into the amount of tuning and mechanical/cosmetic upgrading that can be done in Forza that completely DESTROYS what you can do in GT5.
Someone needs to put out a "Pimp my Ride" game for people like you.
They already did. http://games.teamxbox.com/x...
This guy already proved that GT5 is a better simulation. GT5 has supported wheels that are specifically optimised for GT5, Forza does not, Good luck with the microsoft wheel GT5 feels more sharp and accurate in terms of gameplay, Every car has its own gameplay, Some Forza's Car feels the same. GT5 has much more advance physics whereas Forza physics are sometime exagerrated, The car are overshined, The track are modified by the Dev which they stated. Forza has much customization and so but GT5 is more realistic when you are using the wheel.
You're right! A lot cars even have such their own gameplay that they feel like they're from the PS2 era... Wait a minute they are! ;)
Make no sense at all. Keep hating cause you know its true Xbots Hating all day hahaha How very bright of you
Hey! I don't care, I had both if you look at my avatar. It's just that I find funny that 15-25 y.o. people commenting on how cars handle better in GT5 as if they already drove these cars ou ever will! Everyday cars feel slow in both games, you wander why you understeer sometimes or you have to look at your speed to know you're going to fast not to miss a curve. To me, they're both good games. I was just disapointed that GT5 had a lot of copy/paste material from previous GT games. By the way, I'm not hating but you won't convince me that GT5 is a perfect game and neither is Forza. Happy new year man!
hahaha and its still better than Forza 3. How does that make you feel.
That's another thing I find funny. Only PS3 only owners say that GT5 is better then Forza. Even though they never tried Forza. And before GT5 came out the review scores where supposed to prove it's superiority. 60+ reviews say otherwise. It only got 3 perfect scores! And yet people still believe it's the greatest car game ever. The best GT game was GT3, it went downhill from there. @Pyscho_Mantis I don't feel bad 'cause I played them both, which you clearly haven't. Before saying something isn't good, I suggest you try it to have an educated opoinion about it. But, that's something that probably don't apply in your little fanboy world. Got to level 14 in GT5 and sold it.
Both Case Closed.
I only own a 360, but I've played a bit of GT5 and its awesome too. I own Forza 3 and just traded it in to buy the new ultimate edition for like ten bucks. Since I only have one option I can't really speak on GT5, but both games have pros and cons.
Agreed. If you have a 360 you play forza and if you have a PS3 you play GT5. Better yet if you own these two consoles, this way you can enjoy both games.
I'm not even a racing sim fan and I now have Forza 3 and GT5, haha, and they are both great racing games. It's actually pretty dang hard for me to say which game is better than the other. I have no brand loyalty, so my mind isn't corrupt like all of the idiots out there (and on this site). Some things are just better in Forza, while other things are better in GT5. All it really comes down to is personal preference, and honestly, I can't even choose between the two, ha. =P
Need For Speed Shift
Oh, you crazy fanboys, disagreeing with the name of a game.
yep u should play both u will feel better about yaself as a gamer but im still mad that its only limited on gt5 like all the things you can't do in gt5.... the online dealership is a beast cuz u have to check it everyday to get that rare car but forza offers a deep customization something gt5 should put in but the nascar and the cart racing is a beast in gt5 point is both are very good racing games LEVEL 12 IN GT5 LEVEL 22 IN F3 CARS ARE MORE HIGHER IN GT5
Nice way to start the New Year GamersTV Channel: Trolling or Flamebaiting articles like this is what keeps the gaming community at WAR at all times. People like you & your sites are instigators of the Fanboy Wars occuring as we speak. Why didn't you do an article about Forza on it's own & vice versa for GT5. Why write one with a definitive word "OR" to show competition. Would you like it if everyday our daily news was about Living OR Dieing for us as hunams/people of society to have to make a choice everyday based on stupid media. No, so just like as you live life without the negative of thinking death, play/review games without the FANBOY BIAS of which one is BETTER this shyt is annoying now STOP IT, it's a new year & you guys GamersTV Channel wants to lead the way, well bad news not with these type of articles. BE A GAMER NOT A FANBOY All you had to do was put the Title as "GamersTV Channel: Forza 3 AND GT5" ...replace "OR" with "AND" to make it a peaceful news but no, you chose to label its as a Trolling or Flamebaiting Article.. I see your Intentions & not a good way to start the year.
