I'll be honest, I have no desire to shit on GT6 and I look forward to playing it. I already have it on hold at Redbox...

But Forza owned 7th gen racing. It owned it!

I guess MS can still hold on to the "highest rated racing simulator" for a bit longer. Both games don't interest me in the slightest, so I don't really care.

But this ultimately means Forza 5 will get shit on less. That makes me happy!


lol ah man.



 

Playstation = The Beast from the East

Sony + Nintendo = WIN! PS3 + PSV + PS4 + Wii U + 3DS


I don't see how the bad news for GT makes Forza any better. Sony suffered a drop in metascore for their best selling franchise, and Microsoft lost their last 90+ franchise. It's really bad for everyone.

Meta is bullshit.

SONY fans are getting too much happy news, so this makes me happy in a way. I love the fact the xbone will likely get demolished by PS4 next year but it comes with a price.

Is Metacritic like one of the most important things in gaming? I don't understand why people mention it so much.

Couldn't agree more.

Honestly, yes. I didn't think it would, but it's clear that the effort put into GT6 is less than Forza 5 and the gap in quality is starting to grow.

I still hope it sells gangbusters, as a Sony fan that wants success for my platforms... But the score seems well deserved and hopefully sends a signal to PD for GT7.

Apparently yes, because it goes to show how many people are unable to think for themselves.
