best racing games for the 360?
Hey guys, I was wondering what you think are the best racing games for the XBOX 360?
I would like something that to hear some options for realistic and non realistic racers. Is Forza comparable to Gran Turismo in terms of realism/style? I quite enjoyed Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on the PS3 (had it at work for a while). I hear Sega Ralley is pretty good too, and Project Gotham, but that's more arcade style right?
Of course, Burnout for non-realistic "racing", but maybe there are others...?

You might like 'Grid'. It's an arcade style racing game, but it does have plenty of realism in it. I find the AI to be pretty challenging. I have this one on my PS3, and it has different driving disciplines such as grand prix, drift and street racing.

Another game I like is DiRT. This game is also by the people who made 'Grid'. DiRT is a rally racer with arcade and sim elements. I love it. Great graphics, good AI, plenty of variety. The multiplayer doesn't have much to it. That's the only drawback.

There is a Dirt 2 slated to come out this year.

I have the demo of Grid, it's really nice.

Then there's also "Flatout 3", which is more of a Destruction Derby kind of game, but pretty cool nonetheless.

The thing that really distinguishes Forza from Gran Turismo is the fact that Forza has the added realism of damage to your car - damage that can even affect the performance of your car. IE - If you sideswipe the guy you're passing a little too hard, you could screw up your alignment, giving your steering column a tendency to run you into the curb.

You could have a head-on collision with another car in GT and it'll just go boing!

Don't wanna open a new thread about it, but anyone who hasn't got Shadow Complex yet, get it now. You get a lot of game for 1200 live points (which is about 10 euro's if you're a smart shopper). It's 2.5D, looks amazing and plays delicious.

It's probably the worst racing game ever, though.

I remember hearing about that during E3 and it looked interesting. I will check it out.
Now playing Halo3 ODST though...
