New Need For Speed-M3 GTS!

Found this while looking for m3 rally onboard videos. Seems the M3 GTS will play a pretty important role in the upcoming Need for Speed "The Run". This was just posted three days ago by Need for Speed themselves. Enjoy! It is about time this car gets some gaming appreciation, beyond over due.

The only reason I bought Need For Speed Shift was because it had the M3 GT2 on the cover lol I rarely even play my PS3 and more

IMO, the latest Need For Speeds have some of the best force feedback I have ever experienced in any game. It is not just a bunch of power to weight ratios like Gran Turismo, in the latest Need for Speeds' Porsche's feel like Porsche's and BMW's feel like BMW's etc. The rebound especially is impressive as you can really feel it individually right and left, front and rear. I recently picked up Dirt 3 and on Professional settings is also very fun, especially if you are into e30 Rally racing. Professional really allows the tail to slide out and excessive tire spin will slow you down through the corners. I purchased the game for the M3 specifically(as I only play games with good amounts of BMW's in them. My passion for racing was with many brands(i.e. Porsche, Ferrari) but after being alive for these 21 years I have been able to drive some amazing road cars, after owning a few cars on my own, and crashing in one, BMW is the only brand I care to drive in a game or in real life.)...the game is a blast and really captures that rally experience better than any other rally game out there(if there are any) lol I can only highly recommend either game. Shift 2 has some awesome BMW's this time around as well, and I am impressed. 135i/M1/M3 3.0 CSL/E30 M3/E36 M3/E46 M3/ E92 M3/M6(current)/M3 GT2 updated from the Shift 1 version. They have made this car even better! Damn, am I bored at work! Pumped to get home, burn up, and race that PS3 system into a fever.

I hated Need for Speed shift, but when they got back to just "Need for Speed", it was so much fun. This looks like it will be similar to "Need For Speed" that they put out somewhat recently, so I'll def get this

NFS Shift/Shift2 are some of the Most fun racing series games on the market.

Gran Turismo spent 7 years developing... Garbage. Same shit as it always was, menus sucked, the driving is dry and emotionless. I loved the Gran Turismo franchise and I own every single GT ever made. But I am truly disappointed in this game we waited som long for.

Shift 2 on the other hand is not as realistic but it's realistic enough to be endless fun. I'm not a NFS fan at all, but the Shift series is amazing.

Do you play with a 900 degree wheel? Because GT5 is the most realistic console sim on the market by far. It's just not the same without a proper wheel. I agree that it does feel clinical and the menu system is one of the worst things ever.

I have a power wheel but GT5 is not a sim. It pretends it is, and does a great job pretending. I believe it's classified as semi-sim.

I really forced myself to try to like GT5 as a long time PS3 and GT fan. I dont even have an xbox because I've been with PS3 and GT since the first of both. But man, that game gets dull really fast. I think it may have to do with the fact that I expected so much more to come out of 7 years of development. What the HELL did they do for 7 years??? Only a handful of cars even have the new graphics, the rest are crap graphics. Only a select few cars can be race modified, thats nonsense. There is not even a brake upgrade and all the cars get the same mods.

Maybe it was the expectation that killed it for me.

Forza is still by far my favorite racing game, honestly a little surprised it hasn't gotten a mention yet. In my opinion it stays pretty true to all aspects while maintaining realism.

It's as close to a sim as you can get on a console. Obviously it still needs to appeal to the masses.

Forza is great too. Can't wait for the next one. But I have to say GT5 physics are a bit more realistic.
