Did we miss something on diversity?

Fantastic racing series!

I've been a fan of the series since it started over a decade ago! Remember Gran Turismo over 20 years ago? Remember being frustrated at too many tuner cars, Mitsubishis, Toyotas? Forza solved that with a more Western bias. It was like a miracle. There is no problem giving it to your kids here. They will enjoy it to their hearts content.

Forza is not what is use to be

I have played forzas all the way from The original Forza Motorsports on the first Xbox all the way to the 7th motorsport. LETS START WITH THE PROS: 1 Great graphics 2 Full Campaign 3 competitive racing 4 lots of cars 5 competitive multiplayer CONS 1 AI's racing recognition 2 back to back copy of the last motorsport 3 lobbys are very laggy even with great internet 4 very few after market options (visually) 5 game can freeze now and then 6 less courses 7 DLC Cars 8 less engaging than previous forzas 9 no CLUBS! 10 price of DLC and the game come to over $130.00 one thing that has changed is the racing which is almost the whole game. When I first ever played forza I was terrible and I kept racing and racing and now I'm a pro at it I could race any course any difficulty manual with clutch no drive lines to follow and no traction control or stability control ABS etc.... How ever all these years I have raced this is the first game that any difficulty above EXPERT makes the AI drivers unbeatable for (example) if I Drive a Homologated" Acura NSX" on "Road America" and if all the AI's drive that same car they are garenteed to go faster than you around corners and on. straights if I top out at 205mph they will blast past me @215mph! In the same car!!! You can complete the game about halfway before giving up on unbeatable. Also in this game the AI's do not register your car so if your turning they will side swipe you hate to say it but this IS my least favorite forza little time and effort was put into this one...prayers for forza horizion 4
