"tyre data from Pirelli", "GT5's famously realistic handling" ... Battlefield 3 great simulator ... most advanced video game in this category ... blah blah blah ...With great laughs (and anger) i watch console game company men trying to fool more people to buy their games, saying all incredible and ridiculous things they can imagine. They always try to hide how much obsolete and lagging console games gameplay is.Forza, like GT5 and all other console racing games, is arcade. Graphics are good, but it doesn't look like real racing. They are always shiny and try to impress the 8 years old gaming kid, which is always the main target group of such games.If console developers could stop saying senseless things and admit they offer some "fun" arcade games, would be nice. Consoles will never be realistic, they weren't made for this. They are toys and will be like this forever.
>> They always try to hide how much obsolete and lagging console games gameplay is.
Compared to what?
>> Consoles will never be realistic, they weren't made for this.
@Keithe6eCompared to PC games, isn't it obvious?Reality is realistic, isn't it obvious? No game is 100% realistic (and will never be) but PC games are much more closer to this than consoles.No matter what is realistic or not, why console developers lately try very hard to convince customers that their games are simulators? Why do they say their games are something that they are not? Why is it so important?I have played a very large number of racing games of all categories and i know the answer to the question, but i will never tell you.
I'm a PC gamer too, I like my CS outings.
PC's were not designed for simulations any more so than a console, so stop fooling yourself. Crikey, I even remember the days of CGA gaming.
You will also find that a lot of code is shared between console & PC, IOW: The mathematics in say BF3 will be transferred to the console, and unless your a complete moron you will understand that's the part responsible for the simulation.
Now PC's, do have one advantage as long as your prepared to pay £1000's every year, Hardware, eg. GPU/CPU's have moved along from when the PS3 & XBOX360 were first made. So, for example, BF3 on a top end PC is going to look way better.
>> but i will never tell you.
That's a relief.
You do realise that Battlefield 3 is also a PC game. Anyway, I really don't understand what point you are trying to make. How is claiming something is a simulation any more ridiculous on a Console vs a PC?? Eh, they are just different hardware. Who are they fooling? People buy them because they like the games. You think 8 year olds is the target market for Forza and GT5. Sorry you are just trolling for the sake of it.
@Keithe6eOk, you like to play the fool, but i don't intend to.Consoles and PCs are both computers with same basic components, but consoles have many limitations and (usually) worse hardware, while PCs are limitless and you are free to do whatever you like. There is also a huge difference in games philosophy, console developers will never create simulations and strategy games, they only need dumb people to consume their fodder. They like the ultra easy way, life is shining for them.BF3 is exactly the same crap in PC and consoles, i never said the opposite. When you play BF3 on a top end PC, you will look exactly the same, like standing in front (behind?) of a console. Graphics don't mean a thing.My comments issue was the false advertising console companies do, nobody said anything about this.I think there is not much to argue with a Counter Strike (yikes!!, puke, etc.) player who considers himself a PC gamer.
>> Ok, you like to play the fool, but i don't intend to.
Whatever you say!! I better not argue with you eh, your so technically minded your not able to use TR's reply function instead of adding yet another brand new comment.
>> BF3 is exactly the same crap in PC and consoles
So what was the advantage of a PC again?
>> who considers himself a PC gamer.
Oops my mistake, CS must have been a ZX Spectrum game, I'll just check, nope it was a PC game, so I'm a little confused now, your saying your not a PC gamer even if you play PC games. Crikey!!, you learn something every day.
Well I'll leave you to pay £1000's so you can keep your serious PC rig for playing serious PC simulations, you PC gamer you.
@Keithe6eSorry, but no reply button is visible for me for comments that replied to me, only for original comments. I don't know why ...I don't like a world where all people like and do the same things and play the same games. I like people with different taste. I love alternative options. If all gamers play BF3 and Counter Strike, something is very wrong. I hate a single way of living.Are you a lawyer? Only these talk like that ... aah ... and console gamers too, you finally found the golden game egg to worship and enjoy.
>> only for original comments.
Correct that's what you use, don't start a whole new comment, just append to the original. Amazing how such simple tasks confuses these so called hard core PC gamers. You've now started 4 whole new comments, and this could have all been done with 1 with reply's.
>> Are you a lawyer?
Nope!!, your just odd, so I've no idea what you do.
>> I like people with different taste
Interesting, I like using PC,Consoles & even phones for gaming, but yet you seem to imply I'm the one with a restrictive mindset. Please re-read your own comments, they seem to go a little like "PC's are GOD, consoles are just Toys. blah blah blah.". Me on the other hand, understand the Pro's & Con's of all systems, so I'd say none are a winner.
@Keithe6eHa ha, reply to myself? ha ha ... i am not the strange one ...Mate, all of your time you play the one and only, same boring console type of games with PC, consoles and phones, you don't understand any pros and cons of any system. Call Of Duty and Angry Birds is the whole world for you. You are definitely a lawyer or an 8 years old minded.This is boring mate. I won't say R.I.P. this time, no, i will try hard not to say it, i didn't, i made it.
>> an 8 years old minded.
Yes, that's correct. I'm an 8 year old who knows how to use the reply function, and doesn't get confused the with concept of the word reply, how bad does that make you look?. Your a PC user, I bet you was one of those people who got confused with the "To shut down windows click start". Anyway, I'm not here to teach you about computers, you stick to playing your "Hard core PC games".
>> This is boring mate.
Please don't go, were having so much fun. You just need to learn to use the reply function without getting confused, and were sorted.
@Keithe6eYou said from the start that PC is useless for gaming. You remember the old graphics days, then you must be about 40 years old but you still live in your school days.I am not a hardcore PC gamer, i am a normal gamer that plays many gaming categories. You are a hardcore, completely blindfolded console player who made PC the living hell it is today. I pay for your sins.Consoles gave me only pain. This is my last Forza comment, it's a bad comedy.
I never said PC's were useless for gaming at all, please read comments properly. I said PC's were not designed for simulations, in the same way a console is not. I even pointed out one of the advantages of a PC is that your can throw Hardware at it, and in fact a PC is better than a console if your willing to pay £1000's a year.
>> This is my last Forza comment
That's probably a good thing, as your still not using the comments section properly. This is now the 6th comment header started by you, in fact every comment header has been started by you, Well done.
The best driving simulator for me. Great screenshot on image no.3.
