As a diehard Forza Motorsport fan since the birth of the series, I jumped at the chance to attend the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) reception for the latest addition to the series: Forza Motorsport 5. On Tuesday evening, the Turn 10 Studios team brought out all the stops, from the expected range of exotic supercars and an extravagant venue, to a full-on wheel-and-pedal simulator and playable Xbox-One/Forza 5 systems.
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.
