So we agree that Forza is more graphically consistent than GT5, and that GT is, at its best, graphically superior to Forza and, at its worst, graphically inferior to Forza?
That seems like a really good way to put it. Does anyone disagree in those terms?

Based on the shots on the previous page, GT5 looks a lot more realistic. On my mobile and several of the GT5 shots look like real life. Can't say the same for Forza beyond one or two.

Yes, this is what any sane person would conclude when looking at graphics alone.

Most standard cars obviously look worse than a typical Forza car, though I don't really see that as a negative (when looking at the games as a whole) -- I'm glad that content is there and it'd be silly to cut it. I have a lot of respect for PD's top tier work and I'm glad they don't outsource everything.

I agree with it. Lots of people here try to pretend that most of the time GT5 is at it's worst though.

See?
Well let's just say both sides of the camp have their overzealous fans. If these same people openly state that they don't disagree with those terms, then at least we know they just have a habit of, how shall I put it...instigating.

So... are you pro-premium/standard model or anti-premium/standard model?
Standard cars didn't bothered me for a second, spent a lot more time driving them then any of the premiums.

Hell, if PD spent half as much time on the sound of the cars as they do on modeling them I would be happy with a GT that has all standards but very life like sound, or any other game really...

Watching some random rally video and wondering how awesome would it be to have a game with that sound quality, it makes me wanna cry.

I agree.

If Sony announces GT6 for PS3 and MS announces Forza 5 for X720, will we still argue about graphics?

Fuck a duck, are we still comparing static photographs in this thread?

This video perfectly sums up this whole inane thread:

GT5 vs FM4

In other news, I was playing GRID again yesterday for the first time in ages. Game sucks overall, nowhere near as good as I remember, but holy fuck at the way AI cars lose control and spin out. It's awesome! Puts FM4 and GT5 both to shame.

Admit it, people. We love each other really.

How boring would this place be if we all agreed of these things?

This thread without me or you guys would be like Batman without the Joker. We NEED each other!

So why has the discussion turned entirely to graphics? Did everyone just agree that GT5 is the better racing sim?

As childish as this thread can be, it's got me interested in both games again alongside a new appreciation of photo mode.

I love both..

In before the thread implodes into itself!

:)

I've just wiped my save games in both games and am enjoying doing the SP career/Challenges in them.. I don't know why fanboys insist on having to have a 'winner'.. but I guess it's 5 minutes of entertainment everynow and again!!!
