Next-gen consoles are always sold to consumers in the same way, especially in the beginning. 'LOOK AT THESE NEW GRAPHICS'. 'THESE ONES LOOK REALER THAN THE ONES BEFORE'. As much as my brain is telling me this is silly and irrelevant and sort of useless, I'm still dumb enough to fall for it from time to time. This new Forza Motorsport 5 trailer is one of those times.
Because let's face facts: Forza Motorsport 5 looks pretty incredible.
And I think Turn 10 Studios has been consistent enough with this series to the point where we can honestly say that, in terms of big AAA titles, Forza Motorsport 5 might be the most important launch game. It certainly looks as though it may be the most essential one. I'm not even a big fan of racing sims and I want to play it for some reason!
