Gran Turismo 3 - 100% completion 140 hours. This is a close friends completion time, I only get about 12% in the end. He beat GT3 100% in two and a half solid weeks of playing, approximatly 7 hours a day. Whoever typed 900 hours must have obtained every car, but to complete all the races and get 100% completion it's much less. I wouldn't consider purchasing every car as 100% completion. I don't know anyone who has maxed out GT1,2,4 or 5.
GT3 can be done 100% in such a time, as it didn't really had any long endurance or competition, rather than the Polyphony Formula cup. I don't remember my time, but it wasn't far from that as well. 900 hours does seem a bit exaggerated.
I also maxed GT4, but that did take me almost 1000 hours. Mainly because of the long ass endurances, repeated the Polyphony Formula cup a lot of times (it was much harder than GT3's cup), Mission 34 being a pain to gold, double the amount of events per license and overall huge amount of events.
I'm at 1% away from Platinuming GT5...but I just can't find it in myself to go back to GT5, especially since I have a big backlog of games to catch up to, and farming to level 40 from 38 A-Spec is going to take me a long, long, long time >_<.
Yea, 900 hours in GT3 would only be if someone repeated races to collect all the cars, and even then it seems exaggerated. BTW in GT4 can you hire a driver? If you can, can't you just hire a driver to will all the endurance races?
Yup, but I almost didn't use the B-Spec mode in GT4, except for grinding the DTM championship for Cr (it was the fastest way, as you could gain over 1M Cr in less than half an hour).
Plus, the B-Spec mode was pretty inconsistent, you couldn't just let the driver race all by itself or your race would be ruined.
