I like realism, but I don't really care for PC sims. If I want to race a car, I'll book a day at the track. I want a game that offers some fun stuff, too. I don't like arcade stuff like GRiD, but I do enjoy games that give you freedom to do fun stuff. I think Forza is great that it is pretty realistic, but there are some things that bug me a little. You can tune your cars to do some really goofy stuff and lighten things up.
I'm hoping Forza 3 just improves on the great formula. I've played other racers and I just don't care for them as much. I REALLY loved the Colin Mcrae games. I still play those.
