Forza is okay but Turismo's car list takes it over the edge. You ever driven a monster miata in a video game? Check out the cars. Gran Turismo 5 - Ultimatecarpage.com forums

No contest.

Race 07, WTCC 2007 is a very nice game, I usually play the demo on steam. What your best times in the different classes? You should also check out rfactor, live for speed and there few others.

They're all arcade games compared to race 07, any of the GTR games really, and iRacing of course. Never got into iRacing much because my wheel is only 270*, and you really need a 900* wheel to be any good with anything but the formula cars, which you don't start in.

QFT, GTR blows Gran Turismo and Forza out of the water IMO
