Ahhh Forza 5, I still play Horizon and would definitely be still playing if I had Forza Motorsport 4. However Forza 5 is in the works now and there are a few things Im absolutely hoping we have.
1. I really hope that there are more endurance races. Before we only had races that at the most where 10 laps on a stock car track that took 2 minutes to complete. Now they call this game a simulator and yet have 2-4 minute races? Now I always thought that races lasted a few hours dont they? Im not saying to give us a sh*t ton of 3 hour-200 lap races, however what about a couple of 15-30 even 45 minute races? How about we at least have the option to set up a race that long in single player? Which leads me to my next point
2. Single player quick race option: Maybe you dont want to play in a progressive career? Maybe you just want to turn the game on, select what high performance car you want to drive, and then do the aforementioned 30 minute race around Leguna Seca while not effecting your pro career much at all except earning new lap records and maybe some money.
3. Id like more themed races maybe alternate careers, lets say you want a career in the American Le Mans series or the stock car circuit specifically? They should have more of those races or specific campaigns based around them.
4. More customizable aesthetic options from everyday street mods to the highest performance Le Mans style technology to help allow your own car fit more in line with other specific cars. For instance I like to take my own Ferrari 458 and trick it out Le Mans style with proper sponsor and vinyl placing, however the white headlights stick out like a sore thumb amongst the real Le Mans cars. Something as simple as a headlight cover color changer would do the trick and get it to look more like a Le Mans style with the yellow head light tint. See..
(not a Ferrari 458 look at the sick two wheel shot though and the headlights.)
However the game is, Im certain that Turn10 knows what GT6 has in store and is definitely looking to up the ante in some way, whether it be more cars or simply more superior game technology as this game is likely to be a next gen launch title where as GT6 is not. I look forward to hopefully hearing the announcement in a couple of days and seeing a little bit of footage as Im sure it will make me sh*t my pants with joy.
