MMGN.com describes Forza 4 as one of the best racing sims this generation, but is it worthy of 'GOTY' consideration?
In my opinion no, good game and all but not GOTY worthy
stopped reading at "The cars are amazing and leave Gran Turismo 5 in a trail of dust. There’s absolutely no comparison between the two." pmsl really . If 1 thing GT5 has over forza4 its the cars, the graphics are photo realistic and the tracks are a perfect copy like Nürburgring,which forza just cant get right along with its cartoon like cars n tracks. GT5 beats forza4 with easeeeee.
"If 1 thing GT5 has over Forza 4 its the cars..." I fail to see how the 200 premium/800 standard cars in GT5 compare to 500 premium-like detailed cars in Forza 4, let alone beat it with "easeeee".
@coolbeans because forza doesn't have night racing weather changes night / day cycles Katy racing rally and snow racing NASCAR super gt. plus gran turismo makes racers in real life
Why dont we just throw in Kung fu Panda 2 and Cars 2 for GOTY while we are at it
Lol that's hillarious! So full of WIN XD
Forza 4 has both Super GT and Nascar......... Not to mention LeMans series GT1, GT2 and GT3. V8 Supercars and LeMans Prototypes. Night racing and Weather are 1 ups for GT5 but what they sacrificed to get it was not worth it.
I agree. Can't see it happening.
Best racing game this generation. Worthy of that nomination.
ROFLMFAO!!!! XD XD XD *heart attack*
You should p**s off back to that bin you used to live in
lol you're the man, yewles.
its a very worthy GOTY nominee - metacritic rating of 91/100, unanimous universal acclaim from reviewers, as well as being the second highest rating racing game of the generation (second only to Forza 3, even though 4 is a better game in every way imaginable).
metacritic does not equal GOTY cuz if you had brains you would know that it is an average and each publication hands it own personal GOTY form its own scores. Alos LOL Forza 4 GOTY.......I think it wont even win racing game of the year....Dirt 3 was better.
haha you're pathetic. It's pretty funny seeing you try.
It's one of the best racing games to come out this gen (don't even start the GT vs Forza crap), but in my opinion there are other games that deserve the title more.
well said bubble up
this comment right here proves that common sense on n4g isnt a myth. well said.
Best Racing game this Generation. I don't see why it can't be nominated for game of the year. It is only one point below Uncharted 3 on Metacritics so based on that alone, it should be considered.
best racing game this generation? i strongly disagree.
STILL pushing that? If it's not good at racing, it can't be the best racing game. Forza is good at showcasing its cars, but it fails at showcasing the RACING.
U mad, LOL? Look at Metacritics, It is the highest rated racing game series this generation and one of the highest scoring game this year. So yes, I am STILL pushing it. Name me another racing game that scores higher than Forza. Don't bother, there is none this generation. Why you haters keep trying I really don't know.
Metacritic also says GTAIV is the greatest game of all time. I can assure you that there are far more people who think not than who agree. And once again, I ask you to use something less controversial than Metacritic. I cannot and will not take such a rating system seriously when so many issues with its practices are routinely brought up. If it helps you feel better, though, YOU can use it. I've played both Forza and GT5, as well as Shift, Shift 2, Hot Pursuit, MotorStorm, and Dirt 3 this generation. When it comes to ACTUAL RACING, GT5 is the best at what it does. Not to say that ANY of these are bad- except Shift 2; I hated Shift 2- but especially as a racing simulator, GT5 is on top. Keep your Metacritic score, though. It makes a good substitute for inaccurate tracks and lack of weather or night racing.
Both racing games are great series. Can we leave it at that?
Top game i dont care to much about goty awards but it is a master class in racing games so it deseves it, i dont think i played other contenders they mean nothing in my gaming world.
Definitely worthy of a nomination, but it's hard to get a win being that it's just a racing game, even if it is probably the best racing game this generation and part of the highest rated racing series of all time.
Game of the year? I'm sorry, but not possible with the other, much better games. Littlebigplanet 2 is much better, and uncharted 3 is more than likely going to get it. That or skyrim, but my personal goty is u3
For me it's definitely the best racing game of this generation, I just love the attention given to the cars. Rivals mode was a great surprise, nfs did it last year but forza's version is so much better. I just can't express how much I love the game. (my opinion)
Best racing game I ever played. And I've been playing them since the '70's. The Autovista mode and the "Star in a resonably priced car" challenges are enough to give it GOTY, as far as I'm concerned.
I vote for Forza... Gt5 still has alot upgrade when it comes to handleing of the cars.Question ? Why after all the years of Gt does non of the Vtec Honda cars kick into Vtec. Forza got it perfected and all their cars are Premium cars not just some. There is still allot to Do on Forza don't get me wrong but it's a better true sim than Gt5. Why did Forza drop the sound on their turbo's so low that sucks, I Wish you could add aftermarket dump valvs.
