    A racing game that is not for racers. Well played that man.

    The real driving simulator. The GT series is about driving.

    It's more likely a problem with GT's handling model. It's always been iffy on the edge of grip.

    Just saying as a racer its not the best, AI is severely lacking.
    Shift 2 has well better AI and more competitive racing but that's the focus of the game.

    For me, GT is about lovely looking cars, complete with a documented history and a unique driving experience for each one.
    The pleasure is in driving the things, the unique handling characteristics of each car.
    IMO it is for car lovers, not racers or those looking for an adrenalin rush.
    So you might as well buy a car encyclopedia along with a coffee table art book then. The driving physics are so far from realistic compared to all it's competition, that the driving means nothing.

    I used to be the biggest GT fanboy right up to GT4. But Polyphony's engine conked out on the pit straight, and they been waiting there for the last decade while everyone else laps them.

    I really, really want all the GT car porn stuff allied with Forza's handling model. It would be my favourite driving game ever.

    @Maturin Your right it always has been a bit iffy on the edge but it's never been this iffy, I've played gran turismo for years and this is the only car that I've ever driven that I have literally no idea what it will do in the corners. I've driven perhaps every car imaginable at some point in GT and this car is the most inconsistent, even in my early teens playing around with the car settings when I have no idea what they all do it was never this bad.

    You can never really push the car to the limit because the punishment for going over the limit is so severe. Maybe that is by design, maybe they've deliberately made it difficult to drive so they can see who are the really good drivers but it would of been nice of them to put something in a bit more substantial for everyone else.

    I just played the demo for the first time properly (it crashed on my actual first time) and enjoyed it. As I'm not a car enthusiast I get that this isn't really the game for me but one thing that really confused me in the whole thing is why the default controls have x and square as accelerate and brake respectively. Can anyone explain? Is it just because the triggers are generally considered pretty bad? I know the face buttons are pressure sensitive but it's still not the same as triggers because it takes a lot of thought whereas triggers feel much more natural.

    Anyway, after changing the controls, taking part in the initial 4 events and givivg the first time trial a try, I like it but I'm not blown away by it. The graphics don't seem anywhere near as good as the trailer suggested but maybe that's because we've had all the next-gen stuff since then. I probably wont get it though as I'll likely get either Driveclub or Forza later on in the year and wouldn't play this enough of this in the meantime.

    The default controls are just a hang over from the earliest GT games.
    Hope they finally change it for GT6

    You'd be wrong. As for "more mature", really? They have a slightly different feel to them but that's a ridiculous statement.

    For what it's worth I thought GT5 was better than F3, but F4 was better than GT5. What GT5 got massively wrong is that it could go from sublime to appalling in a heartbeat. Given how many years they spent on it, the lack of polish is astonishing.

    The physics model in Forza 4 is better than GT5, it's as simple as that. You'll even find a long thread at GT Planet where some of the guys who wrote the best GT tuning guides discuss why the Forza model is better and where GT needs to improve to match it.

    Polyphony has pretty much admitted that with it's expressed aim of adding a new (similar to Forza 4) tire model to GT6 and Yamauchi-san saying that "cars shouldn't be that difficult to drive".

    I wonder where you get your ideas about Forza. The dulcet tones of Ever Decreasing Circles' Peter Egan are hardly "dude bro".

    Forza is not better, it's easier.

    Yes it is. Because the physics engine is more like a real car. Which is why they are making GT more like Forza. Crikey even Kazunori Yamauchi admits this, yet you won't?

I don't understand the sudden switch to GT5 hate over Forza really other than americfats buying it up. While I have owned every Forza and put in serious hours, it's more my love of driving and car tuning. I never once thought Forza was even comparable to GT.

    Um, no.

    As I mentioned before, I was a huge GT fanboy, and funnily enough I do in fact own both consoles, as do the majority of critics in this thread. How else did we d/l the bloody demo? So sometimes the "you don't agree with me, therefore you are a biased fanboy" argument falls flat on it's ugly face.

    Both Forza and GT have advantages over each each other, with Forza's quite clearly being the more realistic handling. That just a fact, regardless of which physics model you prefer. Bruno Senna and even Yamauchi themselves said GT's handling model isn't good enough, and actually makes the act of driving harder than real-life due to the bizarre tyre grip behaviour.

    Any EG'ers want to compare demo lap times?

    When you finish a time trial your friend times appear, but nobody on my list is playing...

    I bet it was that rogue curb that caused all those tyre issues in the Grand Prix last weekend!

    I collected every single car and golded all but one event (I couldn't do the Red Bull gold, had to give up).

    I've done most of the single player. Not done all the endurance events though as since GT4 I became a dad and there just aint time for the longer races, sadly.

    I've completed the single player on GT1 (both Japanese and UK versions), GT2, GT3 and GT4.

    I've met and interviewed Kazunori Yamauchi.

    Oh and I used to be the editor of IGN's racing games website, where mostly back then (1999-2000) we wrote about GT1/GT2.

    But apart from that I know nothing about Gran Turismo. :)

    GT is the Dark Souls of racing games. I can understand that if you don't have a lot time you prefer forza, you can easily win a few races in one sitting.
  • Deleted user 4 July 2013 19:44:50
    I honestly can't tell which one is more realistic, nor do I care. I can say that gt5 was out of this world more fun than the last 4 forza games I've played. Just so much better to play.

    That's complete crap though, it's the same argument many PC simmers used to have about the utterly broken physics in a number of games back in the day.

    To say that GT5 was better because it's less casual is as ridiculous as saying Forza is dudebro. Ignoring the fact that on many events I was easily lapping most other competitors (the only really hard ones were the ones which required insane precision or the reactions of a 12 year old).

    But as I said, I'm genuinely looking forward to see what Kaz can do next gen because the leapfrogging going on between all the simmy racing games has been fantastic for gamers.

    Well this is depressing. Haven't played the demo yet would hope they kept the unique feel.

    I get a kick out of the thought that someone thinks Forza, which was much-maligned for its utterly soulless and totally sterile campaign, is classifiable as dude-bro.

    By that token, Tetris is rampantly erotic.
