Hello Chaps,

Well hello everyone, long time no speak. How is everyone?

The forum seems slightly quieter than back in my day. Are any of the old men still around?

Hello stranger, I guess that means you've graduated now.

Unfortunately, Pepsi is right, there's not many around at the moment. Things slowed over a spell of a few years, then pretty much died along with FM5. Only 5 regular competitors now, so just hoping that PCars can bring a few back. On the bright side, even with only 5 regulars, there isn't a massive pace difference so we still get some good close racing most times.

Blimey, 5 of you in a competition!? I remember the days of 5 lobbies +. That being said with consecutive Forza games not living up to the hype and FPS constantly improving it must be hard to keep a dedicated fan base these days.

Well I never even bought the new console sadly, been trying to stay away from consoles and get a decent degree! Finish in about a month Spiny, now just looking and applying for jobs. Will soon have to join you chaps in the real world, but when I do maybe I can invest in a console again and come find you guys online.

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel or is Forza now a remnant of its former self?

Glad to see you chaps are still doing well anyway!

To be fair, I personally felt that FM4 was probably the best version of Forza when they were judged side by side, although I would say that FM2 was far and away the winner if you add the proviso "best for it's time". Unfortunately, it did seem to lose people on here in its second year (granted a lot of that was down to non-game stuff), but the first year was still quite strong.

There are good points about FM5. The graphics are good, if not the step forward we were led to believe from a new console (another proviso, my TV is only set to 720p so graphics improvements are a tad wasted on me). And the biggest improvement is the rumble triggers. They really help with feeling what the car is doing, although when the batteries die down and you lose the rumble it's very difficult to work out what the car is doing.

Sadly, it does feel to me as though everything else in the game has taken a step backwards from FM4

Hey Spiny. Things are good. DiRT Rally and PCars are both amazing on it (as is GTA V but that's not really a racing game). How are things for you?

Busy is probably a good way of putting it. Much better than 3 or 4 years ago when things were quiet, now it's a struggle to keep up with work! Certainly glad of having this week off
