Good racing game? Dirt 3 vs F1 2012?

I used to play grid and thought it was pretty fun and want to play something new. I'm using a 360 controller also.

Just can't decide what would be more fun.

I love good multiplayer racing too.

Being a more casual racing gamer, I'd go with Dirt 3. It appeals to me in a different way than F1, because of the more forgiving nature of the game.

I personally love the Dirt series, number 1 is my favorite so far, but 3 is great too. Honestly, I would give the new NFS game a shot (that being Most Wanted) its actually a decent and fun game.

My favorite PC racing game is still NFS underground 2. Actually its one of my favorite games period.

Biohazard and ADHD are spot on. I've found Dirt to be more appealing myself.

Thanks, and I believe OP stated specifically that he wanted a racing game.

I play both of them. Dirt 3 is more forgivingand more laid back. F1 2012 is really technical. Depends on the mood i'm in i guess. NFS underground 2 i also 1 of my favorite games

Avoid most wanted if you enjoyed most wanted 1..


Go with F1 if oyu like longer races.
Go with Dirt if you like 1 minute races on same tracks.

I actually quite enjoyed Shift and Shift 2 after physics mods. I should try out F1 2012 and Dirt 3.

Excuse me sir and/or ma'am, do you have a moment to spare to hear about our Lord Titan Z?
