I use professional physics and no aids
on GT5 - it's still arcadey - I can run into another car with a closing speed of 60mph and nothing happens. My car doesn't get deflected - the "hit" cars don't either. It's just not "real" IMO. Yes I know we are discussing a game
GT5 is easy to play - you can just drive along the barriers (as if they are coated with silicone) at full tilt until the later races when penalties are introduced.

Play both - Forza is the more realistic driving simulator. I've backed up my thoughts but funnily enough, I've not been quoted on them - I wonder why?
I'm no fanboy - I have both systems - I also have 2 PS2's, dreamcast, had a Wii - got rid of it.
At the end of the day - the conclusion is this is all personal preference. Arguing on the internet etc etc etc.
