I really forced myself to try to like GT5 as a long time PS3 and GT fan. I dont even have an xbox because I've been with PS3 and GT since the first of both. But man, that game gets dull really fast. I think it may have to do with the fact that I expected so much more to come out of 7 years of development. What the HELL did they do for 7 years??? Only a handful of cars even have the new graphics, the rest are crap graphics. Only a select few cars can be race modified, thats nonsense. There is not even a brake upgrade and all the cars get the same mods.

Maybe it was the expectation that killed it for me.
It's as close to a sim as you can get on a console. Obviously it still needs to appeal to the masses.
