Anybody who has followed Forza director Dan Greenawalt has probably seen him make a comment that has ultimately become the driving principle behind the Forza Motorsport and the Forza Horizon franchises. “We want to turn car fans into gamers and game fans into car lovers,” Greenawalt is wont to say.
