Should I pick up forza 5 or just hold off until horizon 2? I've never played the series and it looks like forza 5 has controlled races on it. With real tracks and sponsors etc, horizon 2 looks like more open world racing with less control on track boundaries and stuff. What do y'all think?
Depends really. If you don't mind track racing then go for FM5. Personally I wouldn't bother with FH2 until we see what it's really like, it's all good that they've been listening but saying they will do something and actually doing it are 2 different things.
Anyway, if I were in your situation I'd go for FM5 and buy FH2 when it comes out (or some time after) because of the lack of decent games that will last you till FH2 comes out.
