For the new people here don’t bother claiming bias or any such nonsense against me over this comic, I don’t enjoy any racing games which are any more realistic than Burnout Paradise City or Carmageddon.
Funny comic! And very true.
How I have always felt about the two series is talked about in one comic... awesome.
Ugh... How does this have to continue? If you like Forza, buy Forza. If you like Gran Turismo, but Gran Turismo. It's as simple as that...
Being the the only two racing games I still play. I must say I'm tired of both of them. With Forza and GT5 it seems more like a job to buy cars anymore. Its just the same thing I've been doing since the first GT.
Not this shit again.... O_O
GT5 is already at 6 million copies sold so this is no competition here.
i thought sales didn't matter?
I see what you did there, the old fanboy logic switcharoo... I thought quality>sales...or is sales or that matters now... Just remember your B.S when someone points out that halo 3 sold 4x as many units as KZ2.
And cookie cutter COD games which is regurgitated year after year out sells them all. What was the point again?
Ok thanks for confirming that, Sales = quality Wii sports, Call Of Duty and Halo are the best games this generation then I take it.
http://gamrreview.vgchartz.... 5.32 isn't 6. Still, that's millions of dissapointed fans.
Hey, I'm one of those, and far from disappointed. I agree what Troll Police is doing is stupid, saying sales = quality. But that doesn't mean everyone who bought GT5 is disappointed.
I'm also one of those 6 million and a happy one at that. Also, vgcharts is an unreliable source so don't go listing them.
edhe it was that like months ago Guarantee it over 6 million. "millions of dissappointed fans". Great logic kind of like this below http://www.vgchartz.com/ 51.3 million 360s sold LTD Millions of dissappointed gamers. It's so easy to be a douche.
@brianG - all my friends who've bought it have already traded it back in for lbp2 after feeling it just wasn't up to snuff. @bounkass - it's got a decade of pedigree which is better than any advertising campaign. @deadlyspartan - we all know vgchartz isn't 100% but it's better than <insert another open source of numbers here> @nycredude - millions of RROD, so you're not wrong.
Disappointed? How could anyone be disappointed with he best racing game ever made? I know I'm not. GT5 is amazing.
By that logic McDoanld's is the best restaurant in the world...
Funny Troll Police. You always tell N4G.COM community that sales do not matter when a certain Xbox360 game outsells most PS3 games. Now all of a sudden you are stating how sales matter? Will you be saying this if KZ3 does not outsell Halo Reach? LOL
... A fanboy simulator? O.o Good comic, although a bit simple in its message.
ummm, this is a month late posted here
dont really see a contest, i think gt5 is on another level maby fortza vs shift2 or burnout
Gran Turismo 5 - 84 Forza Motorsport 3 - 92 http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... 92 > 84 Its very simple.Forza Motorsport 3 is the best.Only an ignorant person would deny that
yeah... and Out of the Park Baseball 2007 (96 on metacritic) is a better game? and gtaIV is the best game of all time? pfth ohh..by that logic. Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec (95) must then be better than forza 3 we all know that ALOT of reviews where premature. and bla bla bla.
Grabbing scores from across different genres is a little misleading. Plus, how many reviews were there for each game? I would guess the former game mentioned had very few reviews(ers), compared with the 2 racing games in question, making the comparison even more tenuous. We can exclude the outlying reviews, but at nearly 100 reviews for each sim the data seems to suggest that F3 had broader appeal.
And Final Fantasy - widely acknowledged that the PS3 was the better version - had higher XB360 metacritic score for a long time. And then there is the strange reviews: Games Radar (in-house) GT5 70 Forza 100 Videogamer GT5 80 Forza 100 Giant Bomb GT5 60 Forza 100 Strategy Informer GT5 60 Forza 95 And there is reviews where GT5 is higher GamePro GT5 90 Forza 80 Total Video Games GT5 90 Forza 80 ... Now even and idiot must wonder about the 60 vs 100 scores. Only an ignorant person would deny that.
Great comment and it shows you how deep the bs lies in many corners of the the industry. Those sites have an agenda against GT5. If someone enies that he is blind.
Again, if you exclude the outlying reviews, it seems that the data suggests F3 was the better of the two. I know the term better is, well, hard to quantify at times and I also know a sample pool of 100 is not very large, it still might give us a trend of what the people who review the games feel about it.... excluding people that might have a vendetta against one game or another.
Actually the ps3 version had a lower metacritic for a while because the review versions were mostly ps3 for the heavier weighted sites and they didn't do a 360 version. Lesser weighted sites more impressed with the game recorded the score for both versions so whilst they had the same score from those sites for both versions the score for ps3 dropped because it was getting weighed off by the more important reviews from the heavier weighted sites who were only recording the ps3 score. ^ grammar nazi it all you like i cba'd fixing that "sentence"
First it sales, and now it's scores/reviews. If GT5 would have scored better than Forza 3 but sold less, then you would say scores/reviews don't matter but sales DO.
YAY! We really didn't have much of those the last two years.
“The graphics are gorgeous, the racing physics is spot on, true to life cars to race” Well, there goes the credibility. Just say that you wanted an arcade-sim which is more car painting than racing, rather than a simulator. If thats your idea of fun, fine, but you could replace Forza with Burnout or Mario Karts for that matter. For the 10 million odd who wanted a simulator with realistic physics, graphics and models, there is no substitute.
so boring comic.
GUYS if you have a 360 get forza If you have a ps3 get gt5 if you have both get both. Either way...shut up
