OK i see what you're saying, but why can't i use my GT for a work car and have fun in my Explorer? Why cant they make a SIMULATOR open world? I see the racing game genre like this
1. Arcade racer - NFS,Grid,Dirt,etc
2. Simulation racer - Forza, GT5, RACE07
3. Open-world arcade - Midnight Club, TDU, NFS, Driver SF, Burnout, Forza Horizon(sorta)
4. Open world Sim - Horizon(sorta). . .
i honestly cannot think of a full sim open-world/open-road game. Forza Horizon was the only game that i've seen even come close to it. That is why alot of people are disappointed with the game
Edit: I'm not saying i don't like FH, i just think they used the Forza name to get sales. I'd have preferred it if it was just called Horizon, or something.
