I just bought an Xbox for Christmas with the sole purpose of playing Forza 4. With a force feedback steering wheel and pedals, the game is addicting. I'm well on my way to buying a virtual copy of my V sedan during my "play career"!

:highfive: I used to be a GT fanboy--bought all of my Playstations, PS1, 2, and 3, just to play GT. But while waiting for GT5 to come out, I kind of got into FM3. After finally getting my hands on GT5, I was like, WTF? Horns? Driving suits? Helmets? You need a PAINT CHIP to change the color of a car?? Since FM4 has come out, I haven't looked back. In Forza, ALL of the cars are "premium" cars and "GameSharking" is built-in! (at least the PS3 is a pretty good Blu-ray player) :D

I can't stand a V2 in forza past 600whp or so. The damn thing just spins in every gear and the controller doesn't help with control either.

why is the coupe rated higher than the sedan anyway? Maybe to have an excuse to put it in their list?

In any case, Sad to see the STS-V isn't in the bunch.

Yes, I had to wean myself off of the buttons for accel and brakes; they're not analog anymore and made powerful RWD cars impossible to drive. The triggers are better, but trail braking is really awkward. Been using the wireless wheel, great for modulation, but it has its own set of shortcomings...
