Any gamers out there?  I just picked up the Speedster 3 Forceshock steering wheel from FANATEC and it is amazing.  If anyone is a gamer, and want to meet up online, just let me know...

Played the game and was not impressed at all. The braking on these high end sports cars was nothing impressive. I mean it wasnt even realistic

I'll take GT4 any day.

I've heard that about the game...I haven't played GT4 so I cannot say one way or the other.  I certainly enjoy this game much more than Project Gotham 1 or 2, or Need for Speed Underground (although this is a fun game, too).  However, I have yet to find a racing game that truly replicates the feel of true driving.  There are way too many driver inputs that cannot be be accomplished by a $150 gaming system...I enjoy the games for their accessability and entertainment.  Plus, I don't own a PlayStation. From what I've heard, for the X-Box, this is THE racing game (my racing game experience is limited to the 4 listed here, so I don't have a divinitive perspective).

But, I'm still curious if anyone else on the forum plays this and would like to meet up online sometime.

My beef about games is that if it a game to do with sports or racing I want it to be as realistic as possible. If for anything, something is fake or not proper I just HATE it. When I played Forza Motorsports I was racing some high-powered Ferrari one that was built for the track. I was coming into the corners hard and hitting the brakes, and all the car seemed to do was just slide right into the wall. Now compared to GT4 I could come into a corner VERY fast and nail the brakes and the car would just come to a dead hault. Both cars in both games built for the track.

Play GT4 and see. Its so realistic it will blow you away. From cornering to braking to the driving.

GT4 in "simulation" mode is as good as it gets! I have a PS2, but no XBOX. I'm waiting for the next gen of consoles before I invest any more $ into my PS2. (Although I just bought Madden 2006 which is  awesome!)

I have both PS2 and XBOX, and I own GT4, but have played Forza and anticipate it joining my collection. I enjoy both games; let's face it, the only realistic way of driving a car is getting in the car and driving it.  But if you want to race on tracks from inner city Seoul to the Nurburgring, all in the same day and with 10 million dollars worth of cars, I think few things will compare to GT4 and Forza. Thumbs up on both...

...and when I get Forza, I'll be sure to hit you up, Ian.
