Open world can be Far Cry, but it can also be anything from The Witcher 3 or Fallout 4, to Firewatch, The Witness, Zelda games, Diablo, WoW, Forza Horizion, the GTA games, Divinity: Original Sin, ARK: Survival Evolved, Terrarria, Subnautica, Hitman, Planetside 2, Dying Light, Dead Rising, Farming Simulator, Eurotruck Simulator, and many, many, many others of different kinds.  If you think all of those games are just shallow filler, then fine, but we'll have to agree to disagree.

Kind of weird that they'd give me a drivatar after only one or two races in the Apex beta. Almost lessens the concept since it'll have practically none of my driving habits. Guess I'll have to rectify that with Horizon 3.

My wheel doesn't have directional buttons or anything like that, but I guess I can use the mouse along with it to navigate menus. I seem to recall that's how I did it on earlier driving games where I've used this wheel. It's the Logitech MOMO Racing Force Feedback wheel.

Same here. Got up to the Big Bad Boss for Pylon 512 last night before getting sucked into Horizon 3.  thumbsup

Does anyone have a recommendation on a wheel that works with this on an XB1? Not even sure if any wheel that works on the console will work with this game but assuming that's true. And any info I find online seems to be specific to Forza 6. Hoping someone here is... experienced.  icon_biggrin

I gave up on wheels because it seems none of them have the same type of forcefeedback as the previous gen that I was used to

Thanks guys. I did end up getting a Logitech G920 (on sale so 'only' $300) but will be returning it today. The cables are a bit short and I don't have a great place for it but did get it all hooked up and drove for a bit. However, in spite of being a very nice wheel, it wasn't enough of an improvement for me to justify the setup hassle and price tag. Went back to the controller and after futzing with the deadzone settings, it worked well enough to keep me racing until 2 something in the AM.  icon_smile

TiLT, this one worked just fine with the menus and such as it has a full set of buttons and a d-pad on it and the map 'snaps' to key points using the d-pad. You also get bonus points for every Forza game you've ever played and your 'Drivatar' is out there for the world to hunt down, it would seem. Bit of a PITA but did eventually beat you and your damn Ferrari in my Lamborghini Centenario and you were the first 'pro' I signed to my fledgling festival.  icon_cool

I'm getting this on Windows 10 thanks to the glowing reviews and impressions. My system should be more than enough to handle it at the higher graphical settings.

Never played a Forza game before since it's always been Xbox exclusive and since there have always been good alternatives on PC, so I'm curious to jump into this one to see what all the hoopla is about. Thinking of using my steering wheel, but I don't know how well that will work with the maps and menus.

Dang, I'm THE BOSS?  And I have to race some knucklehead named "Tilt42" to sign him up and get this party started?  Roll Eyes icon_wink

What, seriously? The only Forza I've played (and only briefly) is the Apex "beta" on Windows 10.

I am using the Fanatec Club Sport V2 base with the Xbox One hub and it works great with FH3 on the Xbox one, it's not fully supported on the PC version yet, but support is coming soon.  The wheel is probably more than you want to spend just for this game though.  They have a cheaper model but with everything it's still over $500. 

The FFB on the Xbox one is pretty good, it's not as good as some simulation racing games but I'm enjoying it more than playing with a controller.

It’s generally just that most open world games have an ocean of content but that content has the depth of a kiddie pool.  I would rather have a handful of highly fleshed out and compelling encounters than a bunch of side missions that usually amount to little more than filler or busywork.   Ubisoft games are probably the worst offenders here but I would say the majority suffer from it.

I enjoyed Arkham City well enough but it really gained nothing from being open world other than it being a time sink to get from one interesting point to the next.  In fact, most meaningful content in that game was located in buildings anyways so loading screens and traditional levels would have worked just fine.

Witcher 3 I will grant you is a bit of an exception to the rule and really did deliver both breadth and depth of content.

I've only played Asylum and City, but I disagree. I think they're both wonderful and I don't feel that City lost more than it gained by having a broader scope. Considering just how well it was received, I'd say I'm not alone there.

Open worlds can certainly be done poorly (and Arkham City doesn't fit that description in the least), but the same is true for linear games as well, so I'm kind of confused when I see somebody insinuate that open worlds in general are somehow a bad thing. It doesn't make any more sense than me saying linear game worlds are a bad thing. They each have their place.

But you know, when I was playing through Witcher 3 I did not once stop and think "man, I really wish I didn't have all this freedom". Same goes for Morrowind and basically every other open world game I've ever played.
