Having had it for just over a week, I thought I’d jot down a few thoughts on my experiences of Gran Turismo 5, a game I have actually been looking forward to for quite a few years, about 12 in fact. Way back in 1999 I enjoyed playing GT2, I remember that I bought a second hand Toyota as my first car, and tricked it out pretty much as far as it would go. I don’t remember any other cars, but that one stays with me. The PlayStation I used went off to a new home in early 2000 and that was that. I bought an original X-Box (for the sole purpose of modifying it to run as a media player) and then got into Project Gotham Racing 2 (PGR2) which was fun, but lacked something on GT2. Anyway, since I acquired my PS3 a couple of years ago as a Blu-Ray and Media player, I’ve been waiting for the next installment of GT. A friend did lend me GT Prologue for a bit, and I felt that wasn’t quite the same. And now GT5 is here and I’ve had a chance to explore it some.
