For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted a driving game that was based in Australia. I don’t know what it is, but for some reason, a digital representation of our own backyard just sounded so appealing. Even more so, once open-world games started becoming mainstream. I mean, it’s cool that you can race Mt Panorama in Forza Motorsport 6, but you can’t really explore the landscape, can you?
Imagine my surprise when the first trailer came out for Forza Horizon 3, an open world version of one of the greatest racing series around – set in Australia.
