What preferences are apparent here? Also, there isn't any straw pulling, you have compared them plenty, particularly when you thought it was appropriate (doing so even in this thread). Seems it's only right to "compare" them when it suits an argument, but maybe I see it wrong.

In any event, it doesn't matter in any significant way selnor, they aren't what my point was mainly about. If you didn't want to involve yourself in the debate, you shouldn't continue to perpetuate it now.

I've compared unchaterd to crysis in the same way. Doesn't mean their scores are comparable. Comparing graphics or storytelling etc does not make 2 completely differing genre games comparable.

You've completely missed the point and I haven't got the patience to explain it again. 

I haven't missed the point. You and others were saying Alan wake was. Comparable to heavy rain in meta scores. When they aren't. Forza and gt are. Sven though I don't agree with doing so.

Just because some of us compared 2 games on some points, does not make them comparable across genres. Many of us compare cross genre games on different points.

But when using metacritic ( if people must ) it should be strictly genre to genre. Forget what people compare with personal taste when using meta.

Like I said though, I don't like meta. Because it only inflates the current medias broken. Review systems se have.

This post only furthers my stance that you missed the point. You'd do best to stop quoting me, at this point all you're doing is pushing something that ended long ago. Others got my point. Just do yourself the favor.



                                                                                                                                            

Ok lets leave it then.  as i read the thread differently. =D



forza 4 will be more of a hit than forza 3. kinect owners will buy it to justify buying kinect i think



GT is a great sim but a lacking video game. Inferior community features, car personalization, and the 800 ps2 cars just made me raise an eyebrow....wondering what they were doing for 5 years.

Forza on the other hand releases only AAA games (90+ on metacritic), and comes out every 2 years.

Frequent releases, maintains AAA quality, more community oriented. its a no brainer to me.

its all about the racing and if the cars don't fill as realistic as they should then its not the sim for you.

Some people like the whole package not just the racing. It's fun to look at cars and get info on them, it's fun to tune them and paint them. F4 adds so much content to the franchise I feel like some one said that GT5 feels like a lacking video game. Even if the cars are photo realistic, once you got used to the graphics then except for doing endless events there's not much to do. 



As long as the GT series continues its decline and the Forza series continues its sales increase the last "win" GT had of being "bigger" evaporates.

It terms of scores, Forza seems to have it in the bag. Given the extended development of further Polyphony games, the major concern for them is the continued undercutting of the genre by Turn 10's incredibly efficient game making process.



LOL, why did you bring this thread back to life?

Because GT5's graphics blow Forza out of the water.
