    i personally enjoy the pgr series. its just really fun. and thats the most important thing in my books. GT is good too but its too technical realy, and the xbox controller is best for driving. by far.

    I think someone's had a little too much.

    PGR is nowhere near a simulator. GTR and LFS definately the top racing simulators out there.

    Gran Turismo and Forza are just what I call basic sims.

    Forza, cause you can be serious and race like a proper(-ish) sim, or have some fun and drift the crap out of your cars. The AI annoys me a bit, but I just drive faster than them and its fine

    When I am trying to overtake AI and they won't move, I give 'em a good shunt

    I'd say Forza.
    The only problems with the shunting of other cars, they come back to hit you later sometimes.

    What really shits me off is when they brake really earlier or even unneccesairly when your right on their tail. Turn 1 at Tokyo and Speedway Infield are where they do it heaps and where it's worse, as I normally take those at ~200kmh

    I love realistic games, thus I go for LFS, but GTR & GPL are quite good

    I never have any problems there, I always go really wide to the right and either brake early and cut behind or late and barge through the inside up the hill
