The last ten years of video games has brought the most realistic experiences gamer's have had. Developers knew that there was an appeal to this genre of games when Gran Turismo was the highest selling Playstation one game of all time. In the sixth video game console generation, there were an over abundance of racing games but every console has their iconic racer. Playstation had Gran Turismo, the Nintendo consoles had Mario Kart and Xbox had the Forza series. At first it didn't have that much attention giving towards the series. However, Forza Motorsport 4 made people realize that this was one of the top racing game franchises.
Forza Motorsport 6 was by far the best racing that released that in fall of 2015. The game is one of the most realistic driving games to date. It has some of the most dynamic weather effects in any game, regardless of the genre. The game also had over 400 cars that you could choose from. These cars were from multiple generations and allowed for deep customization. There was a also very tight handling that brought players closer in to the driving experience. On top of that, Forza 6 also had a level based progression system.
The game's sequel, Forza 7 acts as a way to add content to what was already established. There are even more cars and different types of vehicles. You can use cars that you see in the Indy 500. At the same time there are also obscure cars that are bulky which give the game more variety. The game also allows 24 cars per race giving the races realistic stakes. It sets a gap between who is the best and who is the worst. The game also added more weather effects and sought to improve the handling mechanics.
Overall, Forza 7 could act as a large DLC pack. It gives players familiar ground while not alienating the people who enjoyed Forza 6. Giving both audiences a ton of content to experience with. Even the customization has a lot of options. You have options from body paint of the car, to what screws that you want. A once obscure video game franchise on the Xbox has become a household name in the homes of gamer's. This series has given a lot of variety to Microsoft's first-party franchises when compared to Halo and Gears of War. That is a good thing for people who own an Xbox One.
