Gran Turismo 5 is 'gaming's Avatar'

Gran Turismo 5 has been called a few things in its time. 'Delayed', mainly. But UK developer Blitz has labelled it as something altogether more exciting. (Gran Turismo 5, PS3)

I think this is the best way to describe it
Considering its going to be a masterclass in terms of technical achievement and there is no story in GT5.

Everyone keeps talking about Sony western developers so far this gen but the truth is PD have always been THE PS dev. Since the PS1 they have been doing things on PS consoles that no other PS devs were able to achieve. It was always the case of PD realeseing GT's and for other devs to try and emulate what they were able to do.

I said it before and i will say it again. GT5 is going to be a landmark title in gaming.

"masterclass in terms of technical achievement"
Does that sound like CoD to you?
Downtown boogey  +   1602d ago
Well, you're right about that... But as a mainstream money maker, I'd endorse it's similarity to Avatar.

mw2 is more like the movie that is popular yet prety shallow...

like an action packed guns blazing 007 wannabe.

I'm not sure
he was referring to sales although that could be said. I think he was referring to the 3D element of this game.

Huge sales but a product that was already delivered hundreds of times before but better looking this time?
Sitris  +   1602d ago

@Sitris Humn, can I say GT4?

So, since when does GT5 have 60fps and 16 player online?
Besides, X1 prototype is now a feature? Oh, and I can't wait for go carts...

Contrary to most of you, I'm actually gonna buy the game but don't make what it clearly isn't.
Tazz1992  +   1602d ago
You forgot Head tracking... actually i think a lot of people forgot that feature since it is never brought up when they list features in the game.
raztad  +   1602d ago
Is it me of PS360fanboy is saying that GT4 has day night racing, weather, nascar, track editor, rally?

Dont forget real time damage model, plus better car physics.

"Since when does GT5 have 60fps and 16 player online?
HUH? not sure if I understand.

And it probably has a better story then Avatar (which didn't have one) too. Anyway, can't wait for it to come out.

Is it cool to hate on Avatar or something? Do people hate it just cos it was overhyped? I must be the only person on earth that enjoyed it. Maybe watching it at the iMax like I did made a bigger impression on me. And why does everyone say it has no story? It had a more engrossing story then most films I watch. I've never seen anything quite like avatar. The scenery and imagination was simply beautiful. It does my head in when people just write it off. "oh, the script is no Schindler's List, therefore it has no story". I really, really don't get the hate cos I thought it was a cool film and I enjoyed the story a lot. Hate on me, whatever

Yeah its cool to hate on Avatar right now, like Xbox 360 and Kinect. It's the "in" thing, you should try it. Avatar was the Doom 3 of cinema. No jawdropping CGI quality leap and a clichê story filled with boring characters. No one is comparing it to the Schindler's List because in the end, we all knew it was going to be an action oriented film, but I didn't expect the kind of boring story from a film that hyped.
Calm Down Sunshine  +   1602d ago
You're not alone. The film was excellent.

Granted, parts of it weren't overly original.
But they were perfected.
Venatus-Deus  +   1602d ago
It was good solid film, but more importantly I found it an experience. A event to enjoy.

@Calm Down Sunshine

LOL... thats an understatment

Avatar is just Pocahontas in space

i have the Avatar Blu-ray and i recently set up a decent home theatre system.. i think the game is truly a tech masterpiece. but yeah.. the story is weak!
Shadow Flare  +   1602d ago
Venatus, so if avatar is just pochahontus in space, then how can avatar have "no story"? I haven't seen pochahontus so maybe that's why I enjoyed avatar. You know, a lot of love films are similar. But it's how its presented that makes it different. And avatar was presented like nothing I've quite seen before. All I know is, I enjoyed avatar, and I enjoyed it's story. But maybe pochahontus has no story to it either....


No, I get the attachment and it's probably true. And it's funny yeah. I wasn't really directing my comment at you, I was more using your point to show that avatar does have a story. And a decent one

@ Shadow

Hey, I liked Avatar and I was agreeing with you, but the Pocahontas in space is just a known internet joke.

See attachment... without it, it seems like I'm knocking the film (which i'm not).

Yes little of the film was original. I think James Cameron was a fan of Clifford D. Simak. The Avatar concept was used in the book "City" back in 1952, though I don't know if that is the first occurrence. And the idea of the interconnected, highly interdependent biology of the planet was used in the short story "The World That Couldn't Be" back in 1958. There is even a creature called a "Donovan" that seems by it's capabilities to be the equivalent to the "Hammerhead Titanothere" in Avatar.

For the rest of the Avatar story you just need to have been aware of the US government actions over the past few decades.

Shadow Flare "Do people hate it just cos it was overhyped?"
I think Avatar is amazing. The graphics, the sound is KILLER and the actors were fantastic, especially the voice actors. I even enjoyed the story. Now you wanna talk about a bad movie? 2012!

GT is a lot more like Nascar racing, it's godly to some but boring too many.

I'm so glad I waited 5 years to go round and round a virtual track that I have possibly gone round and round in, in previous games. Only this time with prettier graphics - This goes for all racing sims -

Next up "Train Simulator gaming's Avatar".
