I've never played Forza - I never buy car games but love them when I get given one or when i play them at a friends. I might look in to it if i get the next Xbox. We do need original games and new IPs, which can show off what the new consoles can do, but not like combat evolved; it's, personally, the worst game I've ever played and the other Halo games are essentially the same or that's the way it's seems in videos and when I've played them. I know there are lots of people who would disagree, but they suffer from "COD syndrome" - basically the same game with nicer graphics, different stories and locations (you could argue that for most sequels). That being said I do quite like COD, although I prefer longer, open world games with a bit of challenge. That latter point, however, is unfortunately hard to come by these days. Trying to fulfill AC3's optional objectives resulted in me having to stop and have a think about how i was going to tackle the mission, but that's the only one. Personally, I'm looking forward to AC4, Splinter Cell, Thief and Watch Dogs - doing Splinter Cell in ghost style should be a nice challenge.
