1. Forza Motorsport 3

Year Of Release: 2009
Developer: Turn 10 Studios
System(s): XBOX 360
Complex Says: Stunning. Jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Smooth. Insanely detailed. Tight, precise controls. This game hits the sweet spot between highly technical racing for hardcore race gamers and more casual racing for those who are frustrated by overly hardcore race games. You might think that results in the dirty word “compromise,” but we assure you it doesn't. If you or a friend have a 360, you need to play this as of yesterday. We don't care if you even like racing games. While Forza Motorsport 3 certainly is a fine example of one, it's also just fantastic eye candy for the automotively inclined.
