Anyone who has ever sat in bumper- to-bumper traffic in the Flatiron district would probably have a hard time believing that a mere block away, cars were reaching speeds of 200+ miles an hour. But that's exactly what happened on October 16 in Marc Ecko's office at Complex Media, when fans were treated to a preview of what some are calling one of the most anticipated games of 2012: Forza Horizon for XBOX 360.

The newest member of the highest rated racing franchise in gaming, Forza Horizon was recently voted the best racing game of the 2012 E3 conference by gametrailers.net. And for the lucky gamers who were there and able to give it a go, it was easy to see why. Attendees, who had RSVP'd through Superglued by "liking" XBOX Forza Horizon's Facebook page, were not only given an exclusive chance to preview the game (which hits stores on October 23rd, only on XBOX 360), but they also entered into a sweepstakes to win an XBOX, the Forza Horizon game, and $500 in cash. Not a bad deal for one simple click of the mouse. To top off the event's festivities, fans were treated to masterful spinnings in a performance by Mt. Eden Official (a.k.a Mt. Eden Dubstep), the best musical duo to emerge from New Zealand since Flight of the Conchords.

Forza Horizon hits shelves on 10/23, but you can order it now here.
