I think it speaks volumes for Forza 5 when they're comparing it against a game which hasn't had to contend with learning to work with new console hardware and is a launch title.

Gran Turismo 6 is a previous gen console title and forza 5 is a next gen console, it isn't fair at all to compare them! Its like comparing gran turismo 2 to gran turismo 3

I was watching a youtube video of GT6 today and thought the graphics were pretty disappointing compared to Forza.  Maybe the two are more similar in real life but Forza looks more impressive to me.

The Xbox one is significantly more powerful than the ps3, thus forza 5 will offer more realism than gran turismo 6. This is a stupid comparison :angry:

I kind of figured GT6 would come out on top despite being less 'pretty'.

You have to watch this at 1080p.

"But, if I had to pick one racing game to take to a desert island to play for the rest of my life, it would be Gran Turismo 6."

 

Oh god no. After playing both games, I'd never play GT6 again. It looks like absolute trash compared to F5.

Even at 1080p it's a horrible blurry mess. And why is the Forza logo so blurry compared to the GT6 logo?

I was impressed with the skid marks on the road reflecting light.  You can see the effect around 1:43.

Imagine that a next gen game looks better then a previous gen game.

Believe it or not though some people care about more then just graphics in a game. The article does state the graphics are significantly better in F5. But with more tracks, more cars, better career mode, and less annoying micro-transactions GT6 edges it out in the authors view. He does state both are great games though.

Daft to compare the two, especially graphically.

If you want to compare GT5 and GT6 though... I can't help but shake the feeling that GT5 looked more polished. The new lighting in GT6 is gorgeous (and a PS4 away from being as good as Forza 5's) as are the premium car models, but sometimes (and particularly on Bathurst, but it doesn't show in the video) the aliasing gets so rough and the shadows so glitchy it makes the game look truly awful. However, it isn't that bad on all the tracks, and on the whole I am enjoying GT6 more than GT5.

What's unfair about it?

 

Just because a game is next-gen does not automatically make it better than any previous-gen titles, especially this early in a gen.

GT6 is a miracle of racing games. It is amazing what Polyphony was able to come up with, on such an old system and create something so fresh, fun and addictive.

 

I believe it beats Forza 5 hands down especially in terms of variety, driving experience and making you want to continue playing and learn every single car on every single track.

My personal opinion on game play and graphics is Forza > GT

God, I'm probably going to regret this...

 

You're over-the-top enthusiasm really makes you sound like a Sony commercial.  The differences are much closer.

 

Last gen?  Sorry, but in the collective (which can vary immensely from your personal opinion, and that's alright) Forza 4 beat out GT6 on an old system!

GT6 is tied with Forza 5 so it's more subjective.

Lastly, Gran Turismo 5 beat out both of the new racers.

Not arguing one way or the other about average scores, but games evolve and change with the times. Just because a game released 3 years ago got a 95 on metacritic at that time, doesn't mean it'd score the same today (ie. GT6 is better than GT5 yet scores lower).

I'd rather play GT6 than Forza 5, but I'd also rather play Forza 4 than GT6.
