I remember playing the first Gran Turismo back in ’97 and thinking how awesome the graphics looked and how realistic the gameplay was. There was no need for hyper-realistic controls, car damage was not an issue and chunky, pixelated grass patches were a sight to behold.

15 years later, and while I grew a bigger gut, lost a majority of my hair and dropped down in market value — substantially– Gran Turismo is looking better than ever, plays like a rockstar and turns heads like the sex symbol of the year.

That’s it. I’m not writing this anymore
