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.
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.
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.
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!!!
