I'm happy with my FM5 purchase. The alternatives was to delay the release of a next gen Forza or release another old gen version as PD did, either way the lasting playability is reduced. Based on my opinion of my time with GT6 and the forums it is more of the same, been there done that, and I am liking GT6 more than 5. PD has improved some things, weakened (frame rate etc.) or not improved other things, on an old and outdated platform. Most console players "expectations" are very high based on previous Forza and GT series releases, it is almost impossible to please. Compare that to PC racing sims where most would be happy with a fraction of the content console players expect. Look at the Assetto Corsa "pre-release", it is selling very well with only a handful of cars and tracks and all they can so is hot lap. And I am also happy with my AC purchase, apparently I expect less. Just as with AC, I am excited for the future of this new next gen FM, either through FM5 improvements or the next iteration given more development time.
