I really enjoy Sim/Arcade games like Forza and Gran Turismo (though I haven't player the latter since GT3). However, I rarely plug in my 360 and scratched my Forza 3 disc a while back.
On the PC I've played and enjoyed Dirt 1 + 2 though they aren't what I'm looking for cuz they're too arcady.
I played the hell out of NFS Shift 2 and really enjoyed it but I've gotten bored of it and the car selection is meh. Basically in a racing title (playing with a 360 controller, having a wheel sounds so fucking rad but it's just not possible) I'd like the following:
Wide selection of tracks and cars.
Simish in the way that Shift 2 or Forza are. Like with all the traction control and ABS on it's too arcady but when played on hard it has that satisfying learning curve of getting the feel for a car and nailing corners.
Graphics aren't really a priority but handling physics and cockpit view are plus's.
Forza and GT both being console exclusives is quite the bummer though i've heard Forza 5 may be coming to PC.
iRacing or whatever seems interesting but a little intimidating. What do y'all recommend? Or should I just pick up Forza for the 360?
