It’s finally here, and Forza Motorsport 7 marks the 10th Forza title released in the Forza franchise. It is, I’m happy to say, the most complete offering in the Motorsport series so far. It builds on the foundation of Motorsport 5 and 6, adding more tracks, more cars, more wheels, driver gear and the gaming industry’s latest trend, loot crates. If you’ve enjoyed the previous Forza Motorsport games, the winning formula remains.
Rivalries in the automotive world are unquestionably half the fun. From Ford vs. Chevy and BMW vs. Mercedes, to pistons vs. rotors and RWD vs. AWD, they each give us a side to support with our undying faith. However, for us car-guys-gone-geek, one of the greatest rivalries of all is Forza Motorsport vs. Gran Turismo.
Speed. The feeling of time accelerating as force propels in motion your very being. A constant state of change as every sense in your body is heightened in anticipation of the next second that passes. Speed is something that is sought after like a drug, igniting dormant endorphins that create an unmatched visceral experience. When sought with respect, it can be euphoric; when abused, it can be detrimental.
