GT Sport

It’s hard to believe that Gran Turismo has been around for 20 years, but two decades later here I am playing around with the new GT Sport on PlayStation 4.

While I’m far from being an avid gamer these days, I felt it would be only right to dedicate a post to the game that really sparked my interest for cars.

It’s all in the little things, but I spent hours driving the virtual version of the R34 in GT and it now feels a bit surreal to have the real thing parked in my garage in Tokyo.

If you have played to original GT released in 1997 you too can’t help but marvel at the quantum leap made in the graphic department.

The Scapes mode allows to take pictures of cars while blending in real-life photo landscapes.

The end result is sometimes hard to tell apart from reality.

The details are absolutely exquisite and I can’t imagine the amount of time spent to reproduce the cars down to every nut and bolt.

The game includes cars from all eras.

Including unicorns that you’ll likely never be able to drive in real life.

The BNR34 feels actually quite similar to its real counterpart, and while driving the real thing is a completely different experience, sometimes it’s great to feel 14 years old all over again for just a few minutes.

Until next time.
