"This beautiful city seems empty. All the people in the world and you can still feel lonely. What's the point of having it all without the person you love? Sometimes you just need to start again, in order to fly." -Alicia Keys

Hence GT5 being such an utter disappointment, despite (critics and comparisons aside) quite a solid simulation game.
I respectfully have to disagree, I just don’t see enough evidence to back up claims that are made such as:
Gran Turismo 6’s best trait is its eagerness to get players to try out other things.
From the very start, GT’s main trait was simulation of racing games and pushing boundaries of racing games. Isn’t trying out new things the entire point of making a new game for people to purchase and appreciate?…
Along with the following quote, which has been true about every Gran Turismo game raising the standard for racing simulation as a genre and category of gaming:
Most of those details are perfect, though, and they weave together into a wonderful demonstration of what racing games can achieve.
I don’t believe in giving brownie points to a series that is expected to do such things. PD has been determined to make this their focal point of the entire series from GT1. Without having such, a racing simulation game with such high praise since its creation would be nothing.
The cars look and feel true-to-life, but they mostly sound like different pitches of lawnmowers. But the worst offender is collisions.
Things like this, I would think, would be critical to the overall game. It’s a simulation game, not aimed towards a more arcade-like audience as Forza. Sound, graphics, game play, feel, atmosphere are all things that play into the game and shouldn’t be written off as just a minor detail that mixes in with perfect ones. It confuses me how such things can be said, and then the game receives a 9/10 after such.
GRAN TURISMO 6 IS POLYPHONY DIGITAL’S MOST PASSIONATE AND ENTHUSIASTIC RACING GAME YET
This is an incredibly bold statement that I didn’t really see supported in the review itself aside from the reviewer’s passion for mini features within the game. Just out of curiosity and not disrespect, has the reviewer played other Gran Turismo games at length and other racing games?
It just seemed like many aspects of the review were made out to be inflated and better than the game may actually be due to GT5’s failure to please the hardcore crowd. I felt like all I really got from it was ‘graphics are better, load times are shorter and the game is good, therefore it’s the best piece of work PD has ever put out’ — sorry if this seems brash.
As someone that used to compete in Seoul way back when GT2 was popular and I was still a young kid that poured my heart into this series, please let GT6 be just as good.
GT5 was such an incredible disappointment on all sides and standards excluding graphics, and even then they were not as breathtaking as the gaming media outlets made out to be. I’ve waited so many years for a solid GT game; I feel like GT3 was the last ‘real’ one and that the series is waning towards CoD’s route of taking aesthetics over gameplay.
Those shadows in the last picture are really making me mad.
Naughty Dog or ZeniMAX would be awesome.
Thank you, just saw that.
He deserves it. Best of luck to him.
This is exciting. Persona 4 was incredible. Can’t wait for this.
That’d be nice if you could change the LED color.
Have any of you played a Nuzlocke playthrough?
I have not. I may try it, though. I’m not very good.
It will be interesting to see what the sales are after the Christmas buzz passes.
Sony’s easy-to-approach mentality with this system gives it the edge, ultimately, with hardware statistics aside.
Very nice piece.
