I've put in more hours into Gran Turismo 4 than into any other racing game. But it wasn't that fun to drive in it. It's the progression and car porn that caught me. Since then I played Grid and Dirt 2. Now those are FUN to drive, but lack the love for cars and almost perfect progression of Gran Turismo.
Hopefully, GT5 can make good on the driving this time around. That's all it needs to be the best driving game ever. If it doesn't deliver on that, it'll just be a good one. The 5 reasons listed in this article doesn't really sway me at all, especially since this is all based on information from the developers and rumors rather than actual gameplay experience.
