I don't usually play a lot of racing games, but yesterday I played Burnout Paradise at a buddy's house. I was really impressed, I might see if I can find it used somewhere. What's your favorite racing game for the Xbox 360?
I've heard good things about the Forza Motorsport games too, so I'm not surprised you mentioned that one. I'm hesitant to get one of them because I imagine the handling is too realistic for me. I'm far from a great driver in real life, so I prefer racing games that aren't too difficult in that respect.
