Forza 4 and Top Gear

I am having a hard time wraping my head around this.  I have watched this show.  More because of the entertainment value.  After all that is what they say they are, not a serious car show.  

My biggest problem is there potrail of Americans.  It is very derogitory.  At time I think these guys are going to break out in song and ;start singing Britana Rules the World.

We do............just kidding.

Yeah they do have a pop at americans quite often. (remember stigs american cousin) Can't say i've ever seen the USA or australian versions but are they not the same against us brits? I remember when clarkson and co had the aussie guys on the uk show and it was tit for tat the whole 60 minutes

 

They are not bias toward american cars thats for sure.  So I wouldnt expect a whole lot of American cars in the Autovista. Or the few that are in there, might not have many nice things that will be said.   haha   Dan said that they did not edit anything Jeremy said about the cars.

Well guess I am not going to buy then.   I do not need to be insulted when playing a game.

If you are afraid to get insulted while playing a game then you probably should cancel your gold subscription. lmao

Fear has nothing to do with it.  I can mute you.   But us little old colonist as Jeremy calls us do not like to be insulted by those we helped save twice with blood. I do not want my country made fun of.   I do not make fun of other countries.

It's highly doubtful any of the commentary provided by clarkson will have anything bad to say about america, american cars or anything else for that matter.

It would be rather silly of T10 to alienate anyone with petty insults, especially their fellow americans

If we can't laugh at ourselves, who can we laugh at?   Lest you forget that they're not above taking shots at themselves either, commenting on how Brits can't make a decent car and they're all put together in a shed with a hammer (not a direct quote, but you get the idea). I'm American, and I find the show to be hilarious.  Clarkson, Hammond, and May's comments are meant to bring entertainment value to the show and to be "edgy".  If they don't get a rise out of people, then they're not doing their job.  If you take to heart everything that they say, perhaps you need to lighten up a bit.

Honestly, I'd be highly surprised if he DIDN'T have anything bad to say about Americans or American cars.  If it's true that T10 didn't edit any of his commentary, then I'd expect digs at American cars for not being able to go around a corner, Italian cars for being temperamental and impractical, German cars for being cold and lifeless, etc. etc. Why bother having his commentary if it's just some canned, watered down version of what some PR exec wants him to say to make everyone feel warm and cozy?  They could get a lot cheaper voice talent than Jeremy Clarkson to do that, if that's what they wanted.

Don’t forget the digs that English cars just  rust away and fall apart or that we sold off our entire car industry!

I'm american and I absolutely love everything top gear uk. Can't stand Top gear US. I also happen to agree with the majority of the things they say about most all of the cars. Some things I don't (I drive a wrx) and they bashed it in an episode a while back. But it's a game and they will make it entertaining for sure.
