OK, so i've been playing forza, and nothing but forza for 3 weeks now, everyday for an average of maybe 6 hours.

i'm pretty close to the end, only a couple series left and 3 endurance races, but my god i'm so bored, i'm struggling even to stay awake during some races.

8 laps of a track youve already driven a thousand times is mind numbing, i really wish they had put more tracks in it.

i think forza needs a mega update, with more track, hill climbs/downhills, 0-60 strip etc etc

oh yeah and wheres the freakin DLC?

Anyone playing for more then 3+ hours a day (Thats One sitting) and, do this ROUTINELY i would not worry about *being bored* as i would asking *wtf am i doing*


Go out, get turned down by a girl or 10, do something...paint a picture or iunno....go volounteer somewhere....


Thats way to much time playing games...(now ok, weve all played a game or games for more then 4 hours in a day....i admit ive done it..


but i mean its not something that i do DAILY..

Play Dirt, its just as fun or MORE fun then forza 2 (cept the editing part)

But thats just my 2 cents, and again i dont mean to come off as a jerk...just you really would benefit from goen outside..

Try not turning on your 360 for a few days.. it works wonders

I'm currently playing my way through GT4 on my PS2 and it has well more tracks than Forza 1 on the Xbox 1. I hope Forza 2 doesn't disappointment when I get the 360 Elite if it ever comes out. Thats one grunge I had about Forza 1. Hope they add more tracks via DLC.

I know what you mean...going through races feels more like grinding now than racing.
I think it has to do with the way the races are set up, later in the game, like the professional series I don't want to be forced to race a slow ass D class car. By now I have a couple serious machines tuned the way I like em, having to start over sucks, and trying to find the perfect mix of upgrades that still fits in the P.I. range is a hassle.
more tracks and some series or points style races would definitely spice it up a bit

I played for almost 4 weeks straight and yes I'm very burnt out, but I still feel it calling me. That is the first in a long time where a game had my entire attention for that long, they don't make many like that anymore.

They need a dragstrip. I hope they add it in.

I expect more cars and tracks hopefully in the future on marketplace, I know the DVD limitations crippled how much they wanted to put into the game, not that 300+ cars isn't a lot, I'm just bored with all of them.

Forza ruined it for me, but it does have some fun in it.

for a start, i've been with my girlfriend for over a year now so going out looking for chicks would be pointless, just because you get turned by 10 chicks in a night doesn't mean i do.

I've recently finished slogging away with my university work so i'm chilling the fuck out playing some xbox.

6 hours is only a small part of a 24 hour day, it's not like im playing for that long then watching tv for even more hours, i'm currently building a summer house with my father (when the rain lets up). Or i might even spend time working on some other projects, obviously you have never seen any of my work.

painting pictures etc are hobbies, just like playing video game, it happens to be a hobby i enjoy.

I would love to go outside, but unlike your wise self we here dont benefit from nice weather, it's been raining hard for weeks now with the exceptions of a couple days. When the sun does poke it's head out i go out walking with my girl (i likt to visit wind farms and take pictures) or head up to the basketball court with my buddies

maybe next time you decide that somebody is a sad loser you should gather some facts.

It sure does, it's just a shame gran turismo series are garbage laugh.gif I thought GT4 was so bad infact that i swapped it for killzone..yep...killzone.

hopefully GT5 will be good, but if GT:HD is anything to go by then oh dear, oh dear oh dear.

Disrespecting one of the most pioneering racing series of recent times sad.gif I thought Gran Turismo 4 was fantastic. So so many cars and so many tracks. What really clinched the deal was La Sarthe (Le Mans) love.gif

If they release La Sarthe for Forza 2 then Forza 2 takes the title as the best ever; but due to lack of tracks Gran Turismo 4 is still my favourite. Plus the sheer variety of cars that it has (way more Le Mans racers and other low end cars to supe up). I also think the photo mode in GT4 is better. To my memory, it looks far better than the 360 in photo mode, though having not been on it for over 9 months I could be wrong. There is also the option to save to a memory stick. That's cool smile.gif

grim_d - i would just be careful w/ some type of repetitive motion injury playing for that long at one sitting. definitely stretch out quite often as these injuries can be life altering - take this info from somebody who knows....sad.gif
