“You mad bro?” That’s what I’ve been telling gaming fans out there who have been banking on some of the flaws of Gran Turismo 5. Like many other highly anticipated titles, any little flaw upon release would trigger a series of negative comments.
Stop complaining, deal with the flaws!
not rly a matter of dealing with flaws but not going on an all out candy fueled rage fest.
I have been playing it every day since Monday and I have barely scratched the surface... Last night I started playing a couple of the special races.
No deal with the simulation.That you have to work to acquire good cars and have the satisfaction in doing that.
LEAVE GT5 ALONE! LOL
I haven't encountered any flaws with the game yet and I've got an insane amount of time on the game already... and yes, there are some things that I don't like in GT5 but the positives outweigh the negatives enough for me to say it's a 10/10 for sure
what level are you at.
i'm 17 (aspec) and like 4 (bspec) & I play a lot of arcade mode
If the game has negatives, howcome it's a 10/10? After all, doesn't that perfect score means the game has no negatives and thus, it's flawless? @never_waste_a_bullet down there: Flaws are flaws, moreover, ignoring them would usually show bias from your part. Also, I'd pretty much say that alot of critics have said otherwise; the flaws are an annoyance. However, I have not played the game, so how should I now? I'm only going by what I've read. @never_waste_a_bullet down there, again: Uncharted 2 did what it did ALMOST flawlessly, trading away depth for an incredible amount of polish (Which, in my opinion, is seriously the only thing the game lacked. Depth.). Gran Turismo 5, for the looks of it at least, is not comparable.
the negatives are negligible
Uncharted 2 had flaws.. If you've ever played that then you know that a game can be 10/10 with flaws edit: @Neckbear ^^ yes, but like you've said you haven't played it, so I guess you wouldn't know
10/10 doesn't mean perfect. How childish is that. Metal gear 4, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, Halo 3 all had 10's yet all had issues. Stop acting simple. For me a 10 is the best or equal to the best in its genre within the generation. MGS4 or halo 3 would never get 10's now imho as games move on from many standpoints. Again, dont act simple.
"I haven't encountered any flaws with the game yet" how about no brake upgrades, thats a pretty big flaw for a driving sim
Got to admit I was suprised but you can tweak your brakes. Even than the game is still a 10/10 there are soo soo many things to do. The GT5 world is like a town of racing.
It's a very good game to me no matter what. Everything that comes out now it seems has problems and needs a patch so who cares.
Gran Turismo tops the heat charts, it went right past Kinect and Black Ops. Thanks trolls, this wouldn't have been possible without you guys!
after numerous delays and 5 years of wait AND seeing how the final product turned out the fans have all the right to complain...
From that pov, yes.
I agree with this. With as long as we had to wait somethings should have been better. But really, the game is pretty awesome even with the few complaints I have.
1 delay in u.s/Europe and 2 in japan. that is not numerous,also fans aren't the one's complaining.
lol exactly why would the fans complain now they have the game?? its only the 360 fanboys who complain because they cant play the game....jealousy!
You're exactly right. However, those people who have never played the game (and never intended to) yet are negatively commenting in every GT5 article are trolling. People exactly like you. And these people are doing so with a feverish pitch, not to mention bubbling down anybody who defends or posts positively about the game. I lost 2 bubbles and recieved a ban for calling out 2 trolls who were spamming the exact same negative comment into every GT5 article. Thier spam remains. EDIT: lol recieved a disagree in the first minute (probably another bubble as well). This game has them insensed.
I'm gonna post this on like every GT5 article cuz it cracks me up. I have no opinion otherwise :-p
Stop complaining about people complaining about people complaining about people complaining about GT5
It is a sad day when people cannot make up their own mind and have to listen to what someone elese tells them is good or bad. Almost brainwashing. All I know is quality TV + quality cable + quality hifi + PS3 + Gran Turismo 5 = win I dont care about the lesser vehicles as they are just a hurdle to the fast cars that I have to pass. I will never go back and sit with mates and say "Hey, fancy racing some 29bhp cars tonight lads?" I dont think so. I have the Stealth car pack and all I can say is wow. I mean I am having so much fun (apart from savegame fail) that I dont care about shadows and smoke (bumper cam view only), thre scenario looks familiar. Its like a long lost friend thats shown up at the door having had plastic surgery and botox. I hate it and I love it, just like it always was. If your a fan of GT series then patch 1.0.2 fixes the slow menus and the rest is what it always was. The perfect simulator.
just got my copy today dk wat ppl complaining about but im havin a blast with it snow tracks love em cant wait for the academy well back to my game *CIAO*
I know right but you can't stop them. As long as the PS3 keeps coming out with top quality exclusives they will keep trolling said articles. What to when gaming used to be fun?
you can't even browse the official playstation forums about GT5, its just as troll infested there too. 360 just needs a new game to be announced to tank the trolls, then they'll stop acting like they actually care about racing games and find it boring to even troll anymore
It's such an outstanding game. No idea where these haters are coming from.
yea right me neither
Just people wanting to Nit-Pick every little error or fault they see, good in a way, cause Polyphony Digital should patch it up when they see it :D
My friend(s), Welcome to the internet. The fact is, Freedom of speech works well around here, but instead of speech, we type, the fact is, people can say what they want about the game and get away with it, only because it's the internet and most people wouldn't do a damn thing cause they don't care to. But anyway, people enjoy complaining more, especially the xbox trolls, when alot of Articles have said the game is a failure, they use it as a reference with barely any proof, but I honestly can't stand Xbox Trolls saying the played the game, then using one of those references to piss someone off, when they haven't even touched the game and are quoting everything from the Article(s)..
Haters gonna hate !! I am absolutely in love with the game,..
firstly it drives great and there is a ton to do the graphics are good but not that great (with odd exception like a track that allows nighttime driving or weather effects) imo altho the framerate is solid, the only reason this is an issue is because of how fantastic they were making out it was going to look and then in the end it looks pretty damn similar to prologue my biggest complaint is how it doesnt penalise you well enough for bad driving it reckons it cuts ur engines if you hit someone or the wall this is made irrelivant though by the fact when you hit sometihng your going to lose speed anyway it is to the point i find myself playing with an honesty policy that enforce i must not collide with oponants because a lot of the time you can just go far too fast into the first corner and pick up an easy win as a result overall it pretty much met my expectations though and im enjoying it a lot (only lv.11 so far so still very a long way to go lol)
It's not really complaining. It's a full-blown smear campaign against GT5 started by the 360-loving media. It's been going on for years.
Stop worshiping GT5. Those of you who've cried "best racer ever" need to think again. I swear, it's like NASCAR Season 2003 never existed. You want a great racing game, you try that. I feel kinda bad that you guys don't get to play the online anymore. *sniffle* Such a classic.
lol,..Now that I think about it,... It feels like, we haven't installed GT5 the game,.. but GT5 OS,.. It really does :))
Only complainers are : jealous xbox360 fans, first-time GT players and arcade racers. But thats just 1% of 2 millions or more adopters of GT5. Do I care? Nope. GT5 is the best and true king of racing simulator of all time. Yes out of those 3 consoles, PS3 has the best racing simulator game.
i have a third group- people who bought the hype im not dissapointed myself (for the most part), but i can easily see why one could be
you forgot to include the most important group: A long time GT fans that are not afraid to give honest constructive criticism. This is a sold game, but not perfect. 8/10 for me. Or maybe what I look for in a sim racer has just changed from my GT3/4 days.
I have Black Ops and I been playing GT5 more then it, spend more time trying to get that Dodge Viper I been waiting in game. All the problems people say that are in the game like some of the cars not looking as good, you can't tell if you playing the game. It is like playing Fallout New Vegas an trying to see the grass looks real. Its is all pointless, 360fanboys need to just go back to their Kinect and wait until something good comes out, I got both so I get the best of both sides.
This is N4G. you gonna get alot of 360 kids. i dont say fanboys kids. to knock this game. as more mature minded adult gamers will be looking at this game as gran turismo and not forza. kids these days get everything too easy expect everything to be perfect. actually i wonder how many kids played the first ever GT. maybe you still in dipers. i dont care who knocks GT. ITS MY TYPE OF GAME AND I LOVE IT.EVERY MINUTE AND DAY.
You say "kids" yet you act like one in your comment.
i expect that ansew from a kid.
people should just stop complaining and just play the game
You mad? That’s what I’ve been telling blinded SonyChildren out there who have been raging at people, who are being honest when talking about Gran Turismo 5. It's buggy, it's 8 years in the past and it just plain sucks. It's everything Forza strives NOT to be. It was ONCE the king of the road now.. it can't even compare to Need4Speed: Shift. I own a PS3. I love my PS3. I'm ashamed that I ever put GT5 into my PS3. I will not accept utter failure after waiting years. I will not accept a game that should have just never come out. I kept saying it wasn't coming out. I didn't believe it ever would. I was wrong. I was also wrong to even waste my time installing the game onto my harddrive. I was wrong to even think about purchasing the game. It's an absolute failure. I took it back to the store the next day after buying and got my money back. I will never purchase another Gran Tourismo game again. I'll keep playing and ENJOYING Forza 3.
You are mad xbro,..chill,..you will burst a blood vessel in your brain,.. You will make Skittles a stray cat,.. game is fucking great,.. my goty easily !
I'm not exactly biased towards either console, I had Forza 3 and enjoyed it quite a bit. GT5 is one of the best games I've ever played, I think it's getting nit-picked because everyone expected it to be more than a racing sim, just because it doesn't vacuum your floor and make you dinner doesn't mean it's not a fantastic game.
Good points in the article. The problem right now is that most articles are flamebait or anti-flamebait. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ENJOYING A GAME AND GIVING CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM??? I am overall enjoying GT5. The premium cars and tracks are superb, and night racing is great. With the right cars on the right track, this game is the best looking racer out there. My beef is that I was hoping for much more than graphics. Or maybe I was just lead to believe (or wanted to believe) it was more than it was. The promo shots were obviously all photomode in hindsight, because in game is not as polished. I wished they went for quality and cut out the 800 cars, and the non-premium tracks. I also wish that full damage modeling was an *option* from the start. I wish there were more customization options for the cars (breaks, that means you - this is a realistic sim, is it not?). Most of all I wish people were free to give opinions without being lambasted as a Troll or fanboy. The biggest fans of a game are often their biggest critics. I am critical of GT5 because I want the game to be better. I feel like Polyphony was so stuck with creating perfection, that they forgot the big picture: making GT5 FUN for gamers.
