GAME I've decided that I'm going to buy a PS5 solely for Gran Turismo 7.

No it was a ps2 title because thats the last Playstation I bought before I went Xbox for forza 2 or 3. Played the hell out of that before I got into iracing.


I'm not really sure what ridiculous delay you mean then. GT3 came out within like 6 months of the PS2 launch, and about a year and a half after GT2. :dunno:

Might have been gt4 then, I just remember waiting forever after it was delayed many times.

Gt1 was the shit tho.

The whole PC sim thing is a rabbit hole I dare not travel into. For as much as a high end setup costs, I could buy an NB Miata and let tires and brakes bleed me dry. :rofl:
Not quite.

You could build a decent setup for less than 3k and get way more out of it then bullshit arcade titles pretending to be Sims.

Ya but I have a fetish for taking stock street cars and seeing how low I can get them around LS or the Ring (as long as I can hit the rewind button 7 times per turn :mamoru: )

I also love to really experience how each car drives. You're limited on how much you can do that without a wheel, but when you have the in car view you can really tell how each car drives. I think thats so cool. Kinda scratches the itch I have to spend way too much fucking money on a toy.

My huge ass aint fitting in a Miata anyway. Maybe an NC with seat mods I guess. Hate to see what even the lower end Miata market has blown up to like everything else has.

Fair enough…I got my PS4 when Red Dead 2 was released…got my Switch on launch since ZELDA came with it.

Don’t really see any games on the PS5 that’re system sellers just yet. Besides I’ve still got a heavy PS4 back log. :o

I bought my PS3 for gran turismo. Ended up also getting into call of duty.

I could see myself also getting a PS5 for gran turismo again… :o

I remember buying the original xbox for two games: Jet set radio future. Tetris worlds.

And I'll be damned if mine didn't come with both right out of the box. Also had sega gt2002. Those were the only three games I ever played on it I think.

Turn10 almost forces you to get to racing the prototypes and shit as fast as possible. Racing those things are zero fun for me.

Agreed completely. The lower level races where they put you into cars you would never ever pick yourself were a ton of fun. Then you found yourself upgrading and exploring the potential of those cars.

I also hate in 7 that they gave you the F1 car but forced you to race it on non-F1 tracks like tight city courses where it absolutely sucks.

Well that doesn't make sense either. According to Google and Wikipedia, GT2 came out in December 1999 :confused:

And if it had been pushed back to late 2000, that means it would have come out less than a year prior to GT3.

I bought an Xbox 360 to only play Forza horizon. Other than that the only game I've played since ps2 is MLB the show. I purposely haven't bought MLB the show 21 because I haven't found a PS5 at retail

Who else is dumb enough to buy a console for a single game? :rofl: :o
I've done this for every Playstation.

I buy it when they release Gran Turismo. I'll usually pick up another couple of games but this is my main reason I get the system.
