lol I love reading stuff like this. It's similar to what Generalmld said in his vid. You'll only end up using 5 - 20 cars which you like and ignore the others. This is especially the case if over 50% are Japanese cars, most of which you may not be interested in, loads are just the same vehicles with slight variations and 80% are upscaled GT4 cars with no interiors and lack customisation.

Interesting comments:
Quote :
More isn't always better, I've played previous GT's and Forza games and didn't even touch half the cars. I would rather have 400 different cars, than 1000 cars were half of them are repeats which leads to scrolling through cars I'll never use. Almost a 100 Mazda's? Really? One of my favorite cars is the Skyline, but I don't need 40 different variations of the same damn car. I would be happy with 200-400 standard cars, and 2-4 variations of each one, instead of 40+

Quote :
Sure Ill still pick it up
used, but they would have been wise to go the Turn 10 route with quality over quantity.

I complained about the fact that we were getting a bunch of OLD cars a long time ago, but everyone called me a fanboy, now sure enough, we get a bunch of Nissans from the 90s and I still see simpletons making excuses for this mess of a car list, unreal.

Quote :
I wouldn't say it's disappointing, but do 15 versions of the same car, year with a different engine or transmission really qualify as a different car?

To me those are just versions of the same car, that you can just swap out those parts...but it's still the same car.

Will I enjoy the game any less...HELL NO!

Can't wait for my collectors edition!

Quote :
Trust somebody to complain about something they add over 1000 cars yet its not good enough range?? I bet they think Need For Speeds range of cars at about 30 cars is enough though right? Articles like this just shows people are scared of the power of GT5. Honestly though can it have every car in the world?? No.. And expecting it to have a car you like out the probably million made is ludicrous!

Quote :
well for 1 you gtta understand this is the 1st GranTurismo to have ferrari
"
I also wish there were some more standard American cars and classic Fords."
true i will expect more of that in GT6
and kaz said it himself that gt6 wont take as long as gt5 so it should be no more than 2 years from now

Quote :
22 Mazdas MX-5 and ONLY 12 Ferraris
I am very sad with this list : (
Why there is 22 Mazdas MX-5 and ONLY 12 Ferraris?!?!?
Where is the F50,F50GT,FXX,599GTO,F355,GTO, Modena ....
I prefer much more the Forza 3 500 cars than the GT5 +1000 cars.

The car list isn't amazing, but it isn't bad either. You said it yourself DemonWolf, the average person is only going to drive 5 - 20 cars. If that's true, then the fact that it has 800 standard cars doesn't mean much. Plus, those 800 standard cars don't even look bad. They aren't ''PS2 Cars'' I assure you.

Personally, the Japanese influence doesn't bug me at all. What does bug me is that there's no Porsche. But then again, all I will be driving is the Audi-R8.

But whatever, I just want the fucking game to come out already.

If you only use 5-20 cars, then why does it matter that there are some similar cars? It's nice to have a large selection of cars, even if we don't use them all.

They are inflating the number of cars really in the game. Sure 1000+ sounds really impressive, but when there are so many variations of the same car, you can't really count that stuff.

But if people only use 5-20 cars as MLD and DemonWolf say, then it shouldn't matter, now should it?

But people don't only use 5-20 cars, SOME people only use 5-20 cars, I like driving a shit loads of different cars. I think it's a pretty cheap business tactic to boost the car list by putting in 10 variations of the same car. And I like European cars, so when half of those are Japanese cars that's a bit of a kick in the balls. Regardless, it probably still has a couple hundreds of different cars which is good enough. Personally, it just bugs me how they say there are so many cars when so many of them are practically the same.

Just using 5-20 cars is bullshit Razz I have probably owned every single stock car in Forza 3 now, and I want more of them.


However, something intresting I read at GTPlanet the other day was that only Premium cars will be customizable. There are only 200 premium cars.... According to the man who wrote it, you cant even switch rims on the standard cars...

My reaction to that: F*CKING H*LL!!!

The average gamer probably only owns about 10/20 games. Does that mean that a system doesn't need a library of several hundred to a thousand games?
Nope, you need variety to choose from. But unfortunately that's what GT5 lacks. It just has 200 cars that you can actually do proper stuff (only 200 cars I would actually use personally.... come on, the interior view and customisation!!) with, and a lot of them are Japanese cars and the rest are just random variations of the same car.
I'm not trying to claim here that Forza is better. It's just that the article is implying that the lineup isn't what you'd hope for.

but to name a few..

I don't think the car list is disappointing. Infact, the fact that they managed to get 2010 cars like Ferrari 458 Italia and Merc SLS AMG is quite impressive. And even more impressive they managed to get the Jag XF

Although I probably would use only the XF throughout the game Razz

You gotta admit though, they did a good job of getting the 458 Italia and SLS AMG in. And this is the first game I've seen that has the '02 Euro Accord in.

Although the car which gets me hooked to defend the game's honor is that oh-so-gorgeous Jaag XF *drools*... Me want Razz

Yeah fair enough, I just don't like the way this game has been in development for so long and when they claim it has 1000+ cars it turns out most of them are virtually the same thing, fair enough, there are a lot of japanese ones, also fair enough, but then 800 don't even have proper interiors and tuning/customising.

Looking at the list though, I don't see why PD puts so many friggen imports.

Dissapointing Indeed, 220 cars and some land fill. The game looks gorgeous, but if the gameplay vids are any indication, its still the old gran turismo I grew tired of... Shame too, cuz GT5 was the only game that could make me buy a PS3. But after revelation after revelation, it has just become sad--der
