    Which one would you recommend? I'm considering buying a racing game, but can't make my mind up.

    From what I've read briefly, it seems like GT is more realistic, but N4S is more fun. And Blur just has a cool picture on the box. But I'd appreciate some opinions before I decide :P

    For proper racing GT5. For casual gaming i'd say NFS. Blur is great but there aren't that many people online (less than 1000 on PS3). I'm thinking of trading it in.

    None of them. Test Drive Unlimited 2 is going to kill both of these games.

    N4S

    I used to adore the NFS franchise but its just gone downhill imo.

    NFS: HP is ridiculously reptitive, but its dirt cheap atm even £22/24.99 for PS3/360 online. So up to you really.

    Why do people act like the gran turismo games are simulators? They just aren't.

    Arcade Racing - GT5
    Easier Arcade Racing - N4S/Blur

    More entertaining Arcade Racing - TDU2

    A real simulator - Ferrari Virtual Academy (Try to beat my 1:19.3 at mugello)

    (lol at the negging from people who thought they could drive)

    I decided on GT5 in the end.

    I didn't realise Blur was more of an arcade type of thing with weapons and powerups and such, so I'm not interested in that. And although I did have a N4S hot pursuit game years ago which was very fun, I seem to recall it being a bit repetitive. So I thought I'd try GT5 since I've never had a GT game before.
