For me Gran Turismo is somewhat of an enigma in video game racing. In so many ways it is behind the times with no damage model, no online presence (til now), a sedate feel to the actual racing, and an AI that sticks to the perfect racing line with a Terminator like determination.
Yet, Gran Turismo is GT! and the fan base that has been garnered over its years on previous console generations love GT for what it is.
With the imminent release of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue for PS3, that fan-base will already be standing in a pool of their own saliva in anticipation; in fact pre-orders for the game already show that it will be yet another blockbuster."
