My nephews turned me on to GT-3 and I have to admit it is one awesome video game. I might have to get myself a playstation, wheel and pedals and a copy of GT-4 upon it's release. It won't replace my slots, but will make a nice additon to them.
Kinda really over the Japaneze car craze. Never had one, but might have to buy some for the daughters when they are old enough. Little flimsy rice burners, nil power, yes, I mean none at all, and who honestly believes you can hit anything in one and keep driving.
I expect they have there place in other countries, but nothing makes a statement like you haven't quite made it than only being able to afford the latest Japaneze "super" (yeh give me a break) car.
See if you guys can get a hold of V8 Supercars 2. for a PS2
You get to race Etype Jags, Mustangs. Porsche 956, Indy cars, V8s, as well as those annoying little Subaru' and Skyline GTR's, all on tracks all over the world/
Try sliding an E type through that first corner at Brands Hatch, what a hoot.

I think Wankel's answer was more succint but I'll just say - my old MR2, 144 mph, 100+ mph uphill with one plug lead having dropped off, t-boned at speed by a delivery van, no injury to old Coop and she still got me home with the door staved into the passenger seat and two rear wheels pointing off at angles best described as 'eccentric'. Sleep peacefully Jezebel.
I've been playing 'GT Prologue' for a while now with steering wheel and I have to say it's a cracking game, can't wait till February when the full game arrives, until then I will be mainly playing TOCA 2 on the PS2!
I've got the "Race Driver (V8 Supercar)" title and think it's great. Obviously being able to race the V8's is a buzz 'cause you see the damn things all year & know where you're going - can also pick who to nerf off the road 'cause they're arses!
GTA is a wild ride. My biggest problem with the game is I keep nicking a car / bike & just driving about looking at everything & forget what I'm meant to be doing. Very time consuming.
Last I heard GT4 is due out in February/March. All the online stuff was buggy so they decided to scrap it. Doesn't matter to me 'cause I'm quite happy swearing at the TV set alone..
