I keep watching that Forza video over and over again. It's great stuff. Sure, it doesn't show off realistic physics or car performance, but it's not meant to. It's meant to draw people like me in, and it's succeeding.


I'll be posting my interview with the Turn 10 folks tomorrow in which they talk about all the things that real car buffs are looking for, like highly detailed car physics, full damage modeling and the ability to roll every single licensed car in their game. It's pretty crazy. But yes, there's also an Brian-proof arcade mode for the rest of us.

can't they make up their own cars and make it realistic? It doesn't have to be a licensed and real life car to be realistic.
