Been playing Forza 6 today and I’d forgotten just how much better the presentation is than in Forza 7. The music and overall menu is much slicker. I hope Forza 8 goes back to this.

This. I found 7 rather unpleasant and un classy. It was a real step backwards.

I use Forza 7 for Rivals mode only now. All my cars are detuned. I just like taking a random car for a few laps around a track until I feel I'm putting in decent clean laps. Everything stripped away. Just pure  driving.

It’s some way from being a sim really, although the direction F7 took was indeed pretty naff.

 

The cards were a weird addition but micro transactions were all the rage then. 

 

Agreed on it not being a sim and it's all the better for it. I tried Project Cars 2 the other day and I was terrible at it, I like my racing games to make me think I actually can drive not make me realise I'm a terrible driver.

I would say it's the simmiest thing for "normal people", exactly as Fletch says.

Well GT v Forza is the new C64 v Spectrum.

 

But GT's game structure and insistence on matching opponents to you is even more severe than Forza's and I find it a LOT more tricky on a pad to Forza 7.  Anything that requires a wheel to be effective is outside the "normal people" designation for me.

I've not played GT for years is it still a maze of incomprehensible menus with a jazz accompaniment? 

 

Yep.

 

I played GT2 a bit recently and the one takeaway was it was amazing how quick the menus was.  Like you went to get in a car and you got in that car.

 

It didn't load a 3d model of that car then slowly display it before you got the option then display a long animation of the car after some more loadng.
