It is the single greatest racing game ever made, hands down!

Is it really a racing game, in the traditional sense? I mean, you do a lot of racing, yes. But, I think most people that are really into racing games don't put Forza Horizon into that category. That's more Forza Motorsport's realm.

With that said, it is certainly my favorite game in which the player spends essentially all of their time in a car.

Yeah, this is a driving game. Lots of solo challenges, lots of exploration-based content. It's absolutely not just a racing game.
