and whoever puts GT5 in this list is blind.
Why? There no other racing game on consoles with graphics better than it.
And it is gorgeous.
The enviroments are mediocre,and not all cars look as detailed...And have you seen the models of people in the game? They look like they belong in a N64 version!Even Gran Turismo 3 looks prettier than 5.And its mediocre graphics dont justify its loading times.For me the game's a mess and I don't understand why people justify it.Sony is my favorite company as well but that doesn't mean that we should support the companies mistakes.
Some of the environments are rough around the egdes, but the audience models aren't as bad as you say. The premium cars are also above any other car models on consoles, and GT5 walks all over GT3 visually.
I know it's only your opinion, and not a heavily shared one, but let's not exaggerate. I wouldn't put GT5 in the list because it's a racer, but it's definitely the best looking racing/driving game money can buy on consoles (even if other titles exceed it in certain areas). On the other hand, it's doing more than most of those as well.
