Racing games arent everyone's cup of tea, and that perfectly fine. I would advise skipping the Motorsport games (the ones about track racing, more grounder in reality, the one you likely played on the 360), and play the horizon games. It's open world, with more arcadier handling, open world, different types or terrain to drive on with a progression system which it at the exact opposite end, where you get good cars pretty quickly. In fact so much so that the progression feels somewhat non-existent, which is one of my complaints of the game. Other than that though, you'll be in for a good time.
Considering his replies even Horizon would be bad for his taste. Even though it isn't a simulator it is still close to reality.
He would be better playing games like Wipeout, Burnout, Carmageddon, etc.
