You should get Project Cars! We are currently running a GT3 comp and have a Ginette G40 comp starting in a couple of weeks. Not much Forza 6 action happening at the moment although it is a much better game than Forza 5 was.

Hello Stranger - be good to catch up again on Live.

The most important thing you need to know is do not, I repeat DO NOT get FM5 - after FM1 to FM4 buying FM5 is about as depressing an experience as your wife of 15 years announcing she's going to grow a beard.

I can't vouch for FM6 as I haven't bought it - however, what I've heard of it does suggest a big improvement on FM5, albeit not up to the levels of FM2 or FM4.

And as Slim says, you could always consider Project Cars. It is much more serious than Forza though, so isn't for everyone, but it's the game which is taking all my Xbox time at the moment. (Be warned though that it is also a game which takes some of Gary's time too, but you have an axe to deal with that ). Not as many cars on there as Forza, and they are more biased towards racing than road cars, but there are many, many more tracks. Also, no build upgrades to the cars, only tuning. As I know you're not massively into tuning, this is a good site to visit for tunes:

P.CARS Setup Database

Anyway, now that's done, welcome back (in the future) to the Xbox.

FM5 = pftttt dpnt bother (unfinished prequel to 6)
FM6 = on the whole Very good (sits between FM3 and 4 in my rating) but already showing holes in it's pretty wrapper with usual PI glitches that need sorting before it gets ruined by idiots. Plenty of painting glitches again but doesnt effect majority.
Pcars = buggy as hell but by far the best 'racer' with a whole wealth of options. Not a pick up and play though - easily distracted/bored need not apply!

An update on my return. I brought f6 and pcars. Forza does look nice and drives well. Really well but I find almost too easy compared to pcars, now pcars is a bitch to get used to but am starting to get the hang of it. I actually started not finishing at the back and I prefer the realism of it, I'd throw it into the corners in forza an know I'd make it but pc I worry on every turn. As for graphics forza is nicer but I don't think by too much. So pcars is the one for me when I'm not drunk, forza will be the one when I am.
