Ever since it was announced that Forza Horizon was going to be an open world game, gamers have been speculating about the inclusion of a dynamic fuel system. Some think including this in the game is a great idea. However, I’m not so sure…
One of the main reasons why I don’t think it would be a good idea is because the player (if not careful) could wind up running out of fuel in the middle of nowhere. Sure, it would be realistic. But it wouldn’t be fun. And even though racing sim fans like me would be able to do just fine with the system, I’m not sure newcomers would enjoy it.
Even though it’s only speculation, there are some clues that lead me to believe that Forza Horizon will have dynamic fuel. First of all, if you’ve seen any of the gameplay videos from E3, you’ll notice that there are multiple gas stations around the game world. Weather they’re there for the purpose of refueling or simply cosmetic remains to be seen.
One of the things I really enjoyed about Test Drive Unlimited and TDU2 was the ability to buy houses. I loved walking into my garage and simply getting into whatever car I wanted. That’s why I would love to see the inclusion of houses in Forza Horizon. However, I feel Playground and T10 could take houses to a whole new level.
For example, in TDU and TDU2 you only had the option of buying prebuilt houses in predetermined locations. Forza Horizon could take it a step further by giving players the option to decide exactly how they wanted their house (or houses) to look.
But after your house was built you would still have the option of changing it or making it bigger if you wanted. Also, you would be able to add things to the surrounding property, external garages for example.
Do you think Forza Horizon should have houses and a dynamic fuel system? Let us know in the comments below!
