“GTlife” User-Contributed Gran Turismo Fan Magazine

February 24th, 2011 by Jordan

Over the past few weeks, users in our forums have been organizing a digital Gran Turismo magazine, made up entirely of user-generated articles and content. Now, all of their hard work has finally come together in the first issue of GTlife, and I think any GT fan will find it an enjoyable read. Topics range from car comparisons, car reviews, tuning tips, “fan fiction”, community interviews, and more. It’s available for free on issuu.com, or you can download the full PDF file (15.1 MB) from GTPlanet’s servers.

I’d like to personally congratulate Schwadegan and all of the other contributors who made this possible – it’s an awesome tribute to what this community can do! To submit an article of your own to the magazine or get involved with the project, head on over to GTlife‘s official forum thread.

    I there i just read the magazine this weekend and i must say its was really enjoyable to read specially the first article “The birth of an Addiction” who keept me thinking “does he still have the buggy?” and at the end there was the picture of the said buggy :) and the interview with the tunners from RKM Motorspors was great to i liked all the articles but of course we all have ones that we like most.
    Hope this project continues to release further editions.
    This was an excelenet first release congratulations to all that have been involved in this project.

    Schwadegan… hats off to you for taking an excellent idea and making it into a reality . I thought the magazine was well written and quite creative.

    I especially liked the first article from a young man who isn’t even old enough to drive yet! He has absolutely been bitten by the car “bug” which has no cure, ha!

    I look forward to future issues. Thanks again for your dedication!

  10. Nice work!

  11. Schwadegan

    It’s so rewarding to read the feedback and reactions from the community, especially when the writers interact with their readers. I want to thank you all for helping me create this magazine, none of this would be possible without you!

  12. COOLfiat

    I am happy to see that everyone is content with the first issue of GTLife! I like it too, but there are mistakes here and there, sentence and paragraph structures weaknesses, and some slightly boring parts… but overall I would love to congratulate Schwadegan and the writers that compiled this great piece of writing! I LOVE GT5

  13. Great effort, looks very neat and professional. Thanks to everybody involved!

    To all those who put in the effort well done, a perfect 10/10. That is 100% better than most mags i pay for at the shops.
    Loved it and the articles are da bomb, really enjoyed the BMW v Merc write up.
    Take my hat off to you guys for taking the time to do this for us GT/Car fans.

    • Gt5anticip8r

      Thanks, that would be mine! I’m glad you liked it

  30. Christian

    this was a great read. Regarding the tuning article: I’m not sure how this tuning thing really works, maybe in future issues, you could give a “tuned car of the week/month” type of thing

  31. Shazbotics

    Great work guys. The production quality is very high, and I admire how you guys were able to put this together in the short time frame that you had.

    Although I am no longer a fan of the game, I will certainly be printing a copy of the magazine to read at work tomorrow.

    Cheers!

    • TofuDrifter

      not a fan ? …. why are you here on a fan site and printing fan-made publications ?

    • Shazbotic

      Not a fan because the game is not fun to play. Im here because I use to be a fan (of past series games). Im printing the magazine because it’d make for good leisure reading.

  32. patoloco205
