Forza 3 hasn't dethroned anything. Those scores haven't changed anything, as GT fans still picked up the game and Forza 3 didn't gain any significant fanbase over it's 92 Meta score vs GT5's 84. Couple that with the fact that most reviews still say GT5 is better at driving simulation than Forza and your words sound even further out of tune. Both are after sim fans and many more people continue to stick with GT.
Lastly, saying "at some point" is, again, an assumption (what if). Debating on that is pointless. Whether or not GT fans get tired of waiting (even though GT5 is the first in the series to take 5 years) remains to be seen. If GT5 is anything to go by, things don't seem to be changing in any big way (save for maybe Japan, where things seem to be changing for many franchises).
Regardless, if you've got something to the contrary outside of wild assumptions and theories, I'm all ears.
Huh.....a PS3 guy playing the sales card. Its truly rare to see after PS3 being 3rd place and sales of Halo and Gears of War titles making the sales of any major ps3 exclusive embarrassing by comparison. You sir, are a dying remnant of the ps2 era where it was common for sony fans to play the sales card :)
Its not about real world consumer opinion where Forza dethroned GT......its the on-paper objective quality aspect. Again....better driving sim....yet an inferior overall package. Thats my point: Forza is known at least to gamers that play both franchises as a better overall package. Forza dethroned GT.
Im also surprised you seem content with the embarrassing ratio of Forza releases to GT release time frames. Add to that Forza games just simply have more premium cars, online modes, tracks, customization options, etc.
I really dont get GT fans. The franchise factually now releases 1 game for every 2 Forzas (3 Forzas come this october!). The game is now a AA franchise for clearly neglecting the VIDEO GAME aspect of the driving simulator.....because no matter how you slice it these are video games.
And the only defence you can really say is that its a better sim (yet completely ignoring the entire package) the real world still buys GT more. Sales. From a sony fan. In this gen. Now ive seen everything :)
Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)
