Kazunori Yamauchi on His First Car Accident, Automotive Culture in America, & More

October 7th, 2013 by Jordan

kazunori-jalopnik-film-fest

Last month’s Jalopnik Film Festival was an interesting and successful event for a lot of reasons. Although there were no major GT6 details announced or revealed, Kazunori Yamauchi spent a fair amount of time talking and interacting with journalists from a wide range of backgrounds.

This often results in some interesting comments which offer a higher-level understanding of the man and the GT series as a whole, and this time was no exception.

(Of course, be sure to read GTPlanet’s interview with Kazunori at the event, if you haven’t already!)

Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo got Kazunori talking about his first car accident, which completely destroyed his R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R – the car that first made him fall in love with driving. He also spoke about motor racing as an analogy to war itself, and how international conflicts can be fought (and hopefully settled) on the race track.

Bijan Stephen of Kill Screen shared a cigarette with Kazunori outside the Manhattan Car Club, which hosted the event. Together, they discussed Gran Turismo’s somewhat unusual position at the intersection of video game, automotive, and film culture. Kazunori also shared his impressions of car culture in the United States, and how it compares to Europe, Japan, and the rest of the world.

gt6_bathurst_1While speaking with the New York Times, Kazunori also hinted at Polyphony Digital’s process of digitizing a track, which involves laser scans and over 100,000 images taken from helicopters, satellites, and workers on the ground. (GTPlanet members actually caught the team scanning the Mount Panorama circuit back in March of 2012.)

  2. nismo451

    because of gt5 I will no longer buy sony products and def not a ps4 should of stuck with ps2 and thats it sony consoles are a dead product going nowhere end of story.

  3. sayba2th

    I would like to formally apologise for my part in the below fiasco. It was not my intention to disrespect the community or this forum. I questioned the other members post as a matter based on principle which is fine but carried it on well past what it should have been. So for that I am sorry. No disrespect to Kaz as most people who have read any posts I have made in the past would know that I am a staunch supporter of him and PD but not one eyed & try to offer something positive where possible.

  4. Swagger897

    soo… apparently the weekly rewind has been published (as per my chrome applet) but I dont see it?

    Anyone else use Google Chrome and have the GTPlanet applet?

  5. jvchevy27

    Why are people feeding the trolls?

    • occasionalracer

      I don’t even know how that freek-show was allowed to continue on, even more surprised that no moderator has deleted all that yet. Especially on a news article simply about Kaz’s… kind of disrespectful if you ask me.

  6. Mr C5 Z06 Vette

    Kaz is crazy and a SUPER SAIYAN if he was going 200km/h on the public roads. And where in tokyo can you even hit 200 with all the city traffic holy crap SUPER SAIYAN Level 4 if I were to put a rank to the title of SUPER SAIYAN what a bada$$

    • Ridox2JZGTE

      Tokyo Wangan allows you to go over 300 kmh :p

  7. Wow, what an adventure readig those comments.

    Anyway…. Another good article, keep up the good work !

  8. Swagger897

    Yeah… im pretty sure he got banned now..

    • TokoTurismo

      Even if he did get banned, he pretty much ruined his reputation for GT6. The guy must have drank something to sound stupidly drunk. He honestly embarrassed the whole GT community.

    • ZeroGamingHD

      Mhm.. Still a huge laugh reading all those spit fest of replies made by him! xD

    • TokoTurismo

      Hahaha. :) Pretty shows what comes out from a drunk person’s mouth. He must be buring from all that gullit. xD

    • TokoTurismo

      *burning

      :P

    • sayba2th

      Well he did ask multiple times to have that happen and he even “hoped” for it.

    • sangdude82

      He was doing a lot of copy and paste from his previous comments.

    • Ittybitty Stigy

      It’s account still says “New member”.

    • Swagger897

      I wonder if that whole speil will be in the weekly rewind.. I hope that it gets brought up but not directly and a mention that this community well not accept it..

      That’s what I think should happen imo…

    • Fire Yoshi

      ^ Couldn’t agree more. I know we get a lot of whiners and jerks that spam the news feed, but what just happened is a disgrace to this community.

    • ScotteDawg

      I was gonna jump in because he insulted us Australians, but there is no getting through to a dumbass that can’t spell and who has their head so far up their fundamental orifice!
      The fact that he feels it necessary to post video of his “driving skills” on you-tube is testament to his personal view of himself – insecure!
      I really hope he gets shot or run over or something…

    • TokoTurismo

      Agreed Swagger897. I seriously hope it gets mentioned in the next Weekly Rewind.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Nope I’m still here! Lmfao

  9. Swagger897

    I cant believe I stayed up that long only to tell a middle aged kid where he lived…

    Now im starting to look like a groggy troll thing..

    • Fire Yoshi

      Nah he was the troll. lol And a bully…
      What a fat head.

    • TokoTurismo

      ^ +1 Fire Yoshi. He even said he was “36 years old”, and yet he acted like that….. Biggest troll indeed.

  10. mobiletone

    He’s sitting in the new Nissan Leaf prototype :)

  11. Amac500

    I know Kaz fell in love with driving his Japanese cars, but it would be cool if he included more of the cars that make me love driving. Oh sexy, sleek, Europeam styling if the 50’s and 60’s, how I love you. Also Group B cars are the single most masculine cars of all time, so I’d love to see any cars designed to be Group B homologated, even if they never got to race, like the Ferrari 288 GTO. Those are the ones I lust for and dream to drive!

  12. terminator363

    A 200 km/h crash, Kaz is nuts :D

    • sangdude82

      Like Jeremy Clarkson said, ‘Tokyo is not a city. It’s a race track.’

    • Swagger897

      I dont recall clarkson ever saying that..

    • sangdude82

      He said that when he has reached Toyko. They were in Japan doing a race with Clarkson driving a red Nissan GT-R & Hammond and May using the Japanese public transporation system.

    • Ittybitty Stigy

      ^ Yep, he said it.

    • Swagger897

      Ahh.. I remember now..

      I just couldnt get over that GPS he had in the car, trying to figure out how to change languages

    • Ittybitty Stigy

      ^ lol, yeah, that was funny. But I liked the GPS in the LFA, we’re you talked to an actual person, not a computer.

    • Ittybitty Stigy

      *where

    • Swagger897

      That was cool.. he did nkt expect an actual person at all. Then when he asked Hammond to change the time in the maseratti quattrreporte (butchered it but idgaf) he found automatic or semiautomatic..

  13. sangdude82

    Let’s go for 200 comments by the end of today :)

  14. sangdude82

    Can we talk about Kaz? Lol

  15. Mr C5 Z06 Vette

    Holy crap loser10 what did you start down below lol

  16. TokoTurismo

    Kaz is still and will be always awesome in my book. The guy rocks. :)

  17. Ive always told people, cars make the world go ’round.

  18. Tenacious D

    Wow… quite the spitfest going on below… xP

    Anyhow, thanks again for compiling these interviews. They were a joy to read.

    • Inferno251

      Nothing but a bunch of pathetic kids commenting down below *rolls eyes*

    • Johnnypenso

      It’s not a pleasant read is it? Criticism of the game is one thing, but that kind of pi$$ing contest you see below is just juvenile.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      the only thing juvenile is some one that talks smack and then hides for cover. You guys can say all you want, but the truth of the matter is that I dont back down or hide when challenged! Opinions are like a$$ holes everyone has one and most stink! I dont have opinions I have listed facts and the proof to back it up! So say what you want and jump on the hate Gran_turisman bandwagon but I really dont give a rats a$$!

    • Johnnypenso

      You can win every race and every challenge Gran_Turisman, but you are still a poor sport judging by your responses on this news thread. And if you really didn’t give a rats a$$ you wouldn’t respond. But you do, so you will.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON JOHNNYPENSO ITS ALL YOU GOT!

    • Fire Yoshi

      But Johnny is right. You DO have horrible sportsmanship…

    • sailworksman

      Hell I grabbed the popcorn just to read the thread!! Yowza!!

  19. TheGTman

    That answers all of my questions about damage models and why there are so many Nissan’s in the game. Sorry Kaz.

  20. HKSBro92

    Ahhh that explains the love for Nissans in GT. Makes perfect sense now. Wonder how different GT would be if his first car was a Porsche or a BMW

    • Swagger897

      cars should be german. Then the game engine designed by the japanese. Then the design of the home screen by the italians. The voice from the british. The tracks by the french (because everyone loves Le Mans). The scenery by the Spanish. And the money system is through the Indians..

      What am I thinking of….

    • DriftZJ

      Since Porsches or BMWs are import cars in Japan, and much more expensive than a R32, he couldn’t afford them.

    • HKSBro92

      Yeah I know that. This was just one of those “what if” questions. Just imagine though….

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Look it up pitcrew. GTP_GranTurisman apparently you haven’t watched my videos. You guys sure do. Like to talk $#!+ and not back it up! Some of you guys make me sick! You are like a yappy chihuahua all bark and no bite! Get your tail out from your legs if you want to play with the big dogs! Woof

    • Pit Crew

      ^ Exactly Swagger, no idea why he’s replying to my comment in this OP, and no I haven’t watched your videos, i’m hardly going to be impressed and furthermore I don’t have the ambition of being an Internet thug in order to get peoples attention.

      It’s a true shame for someone who claims to be so talented on GT5 to show so little class. In the real world you’ll always be the loser with that twisted mentality.

      It only took me to make one statement towards you to get under your skin, LOL really impressive.

    • sayba2th

      PC, this guy has just been looking for war with anyone, couldn’t agree more with your sentiments.

  21. loser10

    With GRAN TURISMO simcade physics you will have a lot of car accidents in real world.

    • sayba2th

      WOW! Thanks loser10 for making me just realise this. Your insightful knowledge as given me enlightenment to recognise the error of my ways and quit this game that has made me have 10 real life accidents since I started driving. Thank you sir, Thank you!

    • loser10

      You are welcome.

    • You’re right, that’s why the first GTAcadamy winner has won the world title in the FIA GT3 championship this year.

    • loser10

      patsy

    • loser10

      let”s race boys with alpine a310 stock comfort hard tires at nordschleife no aids no abs,brakes front 5 rear5 hristo1027

    • Johnnypenso

      What would be the point of this race, especially if the game has simcade physics?

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Loser10 I’ll race you. Send me a friend request, we can race tonight. You won’t find many other people on here take you up on a challenge, most get scared and block you without even trying! You know who you are! ;-)

    • Pit Crew

      That’s a good question Johnnypenso. Doesn’t seem like a resolution to loser10s claim.

      loser10/GRAN-TURISMAN, why don’t you 2 try your hand against some GTP WRS members, since you would seem to have something to prove.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Lol I have raced plenty of them. The problem is none of them can beat me. I’m always looking for a challenge, so if you want to step up I’d be glad to show you my tail lights just like all the rest. Send me a friend request I’ll set up a room.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Go to you tube and search gt5freak, I have plenty of online race replays of me beating GT academy finalists. You may have heard of gar529, and VELOCI_2NR both were finalists. So what do you have? I got proof and I can make you famous on You Tube also! Lmfao

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      I have a room open right now titled “Beat Me And Win A Car” room # 1472 6118 4130 9220 8024 you guys are more than welcome to come try your skills and see if you can beat me to win any car under 1 million credits you want, as I have them all. So here I am this is your chance to race me I’m not hiding behind a keyboard on a forum talking smack, I’m ready 4 whatever you can bring! So bring it!

    • mr_pepps

      So who raced? Who won? Tell us – I love this ‘put your money where your mouth is’ stuff :-D

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Only random people have shown up so far, none of which have beaten me. I don’t anticipate pitcrew to show. Most of the people that talk smack on here have no idea how to drive they feel like they are a tough guy hiding behind their keyboard typing posts on here. The room is still open and I haven’t lost a car yet. Bring it GTPLANET

    • ZeroGamingHD

      No thanks, not racing against pepole like you.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Lol excuses…. That’s what a lot of people on this forum are full of. You won’t race because you know you will lose. How about stepping up and seeing what you got? I’d sure like to see. I still haven’t lost yet. The room is still open lets see what you guys got, surely this forum isn’t full of guys with nothing but excuses. I know some of you have some skill. So lets see what you got

    • TomBrady

      Your name fits you perfectly.

    • Swagger897

      So does yours..
      A cocky and arrogant wuss..

    • Pit Crew

      You’re absolutely right that I won’t show up or send you a Friends Request, as I have nothing to prove to someoine like you. I still don’t see how racing each other would prove or deny loser10s claim of GT having Simcade physics, and it’s hilarious for you to try and “get out” on people who have a different POV then yours by calling them keyboard warriors when you yourself have 5 posts back to back attempting to defend your position in the same comment thread.

      I hardly need any of the cars you got as I have them all too, on 2 accounts all in 0/0/0 form.

      I clearly said GTP WRS members so how did you get GTAcademy finalists from my statement? Your a true clown.

      You are clearly hiding on a news blog talking smack, but not in the main forum challenging the Pros Like Cargo-Rat or IMMORTAL_PILOT.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      @PITSHREW oh i mean PITCREW I have beaten plenty of GTP and WRS drivers as I said before and I was clear about that. You clearly havent watched any of my videos of me beating GT Academy finalists, if I can beat them then what do you think I would do to you and others? I have proof what do you have? You are a keyboard warrior because I called you out and again you hid behind your keyboard just like I said you would. No I probably cant beat IMORTALPILOT because he is one of the fastest in the world, but I can hold my own against some of the fastest in the world as evidence in my YOU TUBE videos. So just to be CLEAR and to let all GTPLANET members know I called you out and you were too scared or just knew that your skills were lacking to race me. You asked me if I can beat GTP and WRS members and to answer your question YES I can. Maybe not all of them but most of them including you. So keep hiding behind your keyboard and typing away because that is all you will be fast at!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      The room is now closed BTW so if anyone else wants to race me send a friend request. I never back down from a challenge.

    • The Wraith would beat you… and Memphis Raines in his GT500.

    • sayba2th

      Listen here loser10, as I told the other clueless tool on here, and YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE gran_turisman, that racing each other, either winning or losing does not change the fact both of you are self-defeating and significantly counterproductive in your actions and not worth me wasting my time on either of you. Neither of you have any idea on how to correctly approach a situation so why would I want to race someone like that? It tells me you would be the same D-Bags on the track that you are on the forum.

      The absolute lack of maturity displayed gives away your young ages. I do not jump when “junior” clowns like you kids start barking orders. You children are over compensating for many things you lack, if you don’t understand where I am coming from have a good look down your pants for starters and you will see the first area you boys are lacking in. What good is pretending to have large set when you have no bow to fire the arrows?

      How about you two go and learn a little respect. You boys will go nicely together as you’re both cut from the same outdated, cheap ass fabric that’s as about as durable as wet toilet paper. Both of you need to GTFU ASAP & stop pretending to be a couple of hard ass’ men that you are quite clearly NOT. Have a nice day!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Tell them to send me a friend request, I’m always up for a challenge. I may not be the fastest in the world, however like I said above I have proof of beating GT Academy (Silverstone) finalists. That’s more than most of you can say.
      I just pulled out the tape measure and mine is bigger, lol

      Go to You Tube and search; gt5freak
      You can see for yourself

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      @ Saba2th I knew it wouldn’t be long before you put your nose in this, you are another keyboard warrior. I have called you out also and you just choose to hide behind the skirt of a forum. I checked your stats on my gran turismo.net and lmfao you sure do talk a lot of trash for someone who has never placed below 50,000th place on a time trial. You sure do talk a big game but don’t have anything to back it up with. I have proof on You Tube to showcase my skills, what do you have? NOTHING! All you have is your keyboard to hide behind. So keep hiding because that is all you have. And typing is all you will ever be fast at! Lmfao aye
      Now what do you have to say?
      Don’t forget to watch my videos before you say anything about my driving, because you have no idea who you are talking to son.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      BTW I’m a 36 yo married man with a son that is probably older than you. So bring it junior

    • You guys are putting way to much effort into this…. all this I’m better than you stuff is what children do. I like to think that I’m a good racer but if I find that someones better than me in a race that’s awesome because it’s a challenge. There’s no need to brag about how good of a racer you are or try to ‘prove’ it, just enjoy the fact you have plenty of talented drivers how share the same passion to race against.

    • who* sorry typo :/

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Look I’m not going to argue with all you guys that blow each other. If you read my comments I welcome a challenge also but I’ve yet to find that challenge here. Most of the guys here like to type on their keyboard rather than drive. I’m online everyday on GT and love to challenge others and call out people that talk smack but can’t prove anything. I can talk smack and back it up. If by children you mean 36 yo men then OK. I’m happy to converse with other drivers on my level just not keyboard warriors that wish they were fast. After all GT is about who is the fastest, not who is the best author.

    • Rafael F

      @GRAN_TURISMAN, Nobody is questioning your driving skills or running away from you, the problem is that you are not being friendly, instead of challenging everyone as a dement person you could invite other members to race together for fun.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Guys go search you tube and watch my videos before you say anything stupid and put your foot in your mourh .

      You Tube search; gt5freak

      Where you at saba2th? Watching my videos I’m sure! Lol

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      @Rafael F If you read all of the comments you will see that I did invite everyone when I opened the room. And nicely I might add. I’m just calling out the few that like to hide behind their keyboard and talk smack and don’t try to back it up.

    • TokoTurismo

      “Where you at saba2th? Watching my videos I’m sure!” BAHAHAHA!! What a joke, saba2th will NEVER waste his time watching your vids GRAN_TURISMAN, especially the way you speak to people? Please….

    • sepulturite

      My god GRAN_TURISMAN how up your own hole are you? And how sad are you too, coming on here and posting messages to people who didn’t even provoke you. You must live a sad little life my friend. If your as good as you say you are why aren’t you racing for real like the GTA winners?

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Haha it’s Tokoturbo or Tokoturismo you are another one that I’ve called out for a race and you too chose to hide behind your keyboard. It’s funny how you guys come out of the woodwork when it’s time to post on the forum but not when it’s time to race. You guys are all bark and no bite. I would love to race you guys but you say since I’m not nice when I talk you won’t race me, lol sounds like a kindergartner if you ask me. You guys ( Tokoturismo, saba2th, pitcrew, muonuli, and a few others) are full of excuses, what does how I talk to you have to do with you racing me and settling this? NOTHING! When you enter someone’s room that you haven’t been in before, you don’t make your decision to enter based on respect that person gave you. At that point you don’t even know them, but you won’t race me because I don’t show you respect? Lol what the heck does respect have to do with Racing me Nothing! It’s just your pathetic excuse as to why you won’t show up! That’s all you have on me is excuses and not talent!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      I finished in the top 100 in the GT academy. I never said I was the fastest in fact I said that I wasn’t, if you can read sepulturite you would see that. But you just chose to put your nose in something that you had no idea about! So next time do a little reading before you look stupid again! I would be racing in real life but it takes a lot of money I’m sure you know that. Only 1 person can win GT Academy and I’ll admit I wasn’t fast enough. However I can hold my own with some of the fastest in the world as evidence in my videos… What have you done?

    • sepulturite

      There’s only one person looking stupid here and it’s not me. And your right I didn’t read it all, but that’s only because I didn’t want to read through the mindless thrash that you’ve been posting. Your just making yourself look sad and pathetic.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Well ask me how much I give a $#!+ talk all you want buddy but you are just like all the rest of those keyboard warriors. A lot to say but nothing to back it up with! Search you tube for gt5freak and pop some popcorn and watch me beat GT Academy finalist. Can you say that?

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Nope I didn’t think so!

    • sepulturite

      Nah mate I can’t, cos I have this thing called a life and a job etc, and Im not brilliant at gt know I’m not brilliant at it, but the thing is….I don’t care! It’s a game for fupps sake, that’s it. I’ve much more important things in my life than this, you obviously dont! Your son must be so proud to have a dad like you haha

    • sepulturite

      But I know*

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Lmfao excuses, that’s all you have. At least you will admit that you suck at GT, unlike those others. You get my respect for that. However you dove head first in the shallow end of the pool without looking at the depth. I have a wonderful life, a wife a son and a truck driving (i drive a 18 wheeler) that consume my life. So what are you talking about? I just happen to have more talent than most, I can’t help it if I was blessed with awesome driving skills! So what’s your comeback?

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Oh yeah it’s a simulator not a game! Big diffrence

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      * truck driving job

    • sepulturite

      Lol I never said I sucked at it, Im good at it but not brilliant, which I’m fine with lol

    • sepulturite

      Gt is a game for me mate cos I use a pad not a wheel, it’s just a bit of fun for me, that’s all.

    • TokoTurismo

      WOOOW GRAN_TURISMAN is the true keyboard warrior. Guy keeps going and going to get the last saying….

    • sepulturite

      +1 haha exactly toko

    • TokoTurismo

      I may not be a pro either but I do enjoy GT as a casual.

    • TokoTurismo

      Indeed sepulturite. It’s shocking. :)

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      It is a simulator no matter what controller you use. Look at the cover the disk is in. “Real Driving Simulator” is on the cover. And @ Tokoturismo I can back up all of my posts and $#!+ talking unlike you! So what do you got to say now? I’m here all night! I don’t back down from a challenge unlike you and your keyboard warrior mates! Lmfao

    • TokoTurismo

      *Chuckles* You’re too funny. That’s all I have to say. Have a nice night. ;)

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      What’s shocking Tokoturismo is how you hide behind the skirt of this forum with your tail between your legs when you get called out for a challenge!

    • sepulturite

      As I said, if you read my message properly, it’s a game TO ME. It’s a sim to you, a game to me. That is it, I am done, thank you all and good night! Lol

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      That’s what I thought!

    • TokoTurismo

      I never wanted to challenge you in the first place. There, now have a nice night.

    • ZeroGamingHD

      TokotTurismo: ”I may not be a pro either but I do enjoy GT as a casual.”

      1+

      I like to sit back and have a good time!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Funny because I challenged you! The reason you hide with your tail between your legs is because you know you will lose!

    • TokoTurismo

      Excatly ZeroGamingHD, well put. :)

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Casual is just a way of saying that you are a keyboard warrior and not a driver.

      Gran_Turisman plain and simple, if you were that good you wouldn’t brag, and I don’t seem to be as big a keyboard warrior as you so… At the end of the day, you still didnt answer the OP to any degree of intelligence other then to show others your an Internet bully who hides behind the autonomy of the Web to push your weight around.

      Top 100 in GTA…yeah sure, that’s what your mouth uhhh keyboard says…

    • sepulturite

      +1 well put pit crew. And now we wait for inevitable reply cos he’s like the Duracell bunny, just never stops lol

    • sayba2th

      hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, son, hahahahahahaha. gran_turisman, you are at 11 at the moment we need you at about a 2 ie shut it. Toko is correct I don’t need to watch nor do I want to watch any videos of you “racing”. Quite frankly I could care less if you were Ayrton Senna. I refuse to associate with people such as yourself. GT is not my job so I don’t have to work with you. Anyone who has to go on an on and on and on about how good they are needs a check up from the neck up. You taunting me trying to get me to do what you want is laughable at best and plain pathetic. You remind me of the you tube gits posting in the comments section of someone else who has put the hard work in and wanting anyone to look at their channel.

      It’s sad that you need to seek attention in such away. People on this forum are not just here to race only so you need to put yourself in check. There are pages in the forums that are full of racing rooms and what styles they are implementing, here is where you find what you seek, not flying off the handle and insulting people in the news articles area like a gunslinger at high noon at the O.K. Coral. I don’t race online as I have a poor internet connection so it ruins the experience but even if I did you would not get the time of day out of me. Why associate with people I despise especially after decimating them on a previous post for trying to do that to others and then try to seek a little retribution to save face? Exactly there is no reason. I don’t need to resort to.

      And another thing let’s clear this up you lying sack, you did not just send a friend request through to race. After I checked you, you sent a whole heap of messages dripping in whack juice to my PSN a/c not addressing me here on GTP throwing some as I predicted, bland generic insults filled with profanity as you lack the vocabulary necessary to go past your eyes when I milked your dairy.

      Therefore I blocked you like Ken so don’t try to come across as poor guy who’s being hard done by the forum. You made your own bed so now you gotta lie in it. It’s not my fault you got people urinating on you like a german porno on here you got yourself to blame for that, look at the adverse responses from the bulk of the posters. When you mess with the bull you get the horns. You need to go take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror if you can bear the sight of your own reflection for long enough.

    • sepulturite

      My god after reading sayba’s post above it really does show what a sad pathetic waste of skin you are GRAN_TURISMAN, as I said earlier, your son must be so proud.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Saba2th all I read is excuses for the reason you won’t race me. You can try to type all the bs you want but bottom line you hid behind this forum with your tail between your legs just like all the rest of those keyboard warriors. You blocked me because you are scared to race me plain and simple! You talk a lot of $#!+ for someone that can’t place below 50,000th place in a time trial! Lmfao all you and those guys have is this precious forum, and no skill! I’ll be happy to race you and show you my taillights, but you will wuss out just you always do!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Sepulturite stfu I already put you in check. I thought you said that you had a life and had better things to do

    • Quakebass

      What you have done here, is claimed anyone who is tired of talking to you and therefore doesn’t want to race with you a keyboard warrior.

      I swear this is something strait out of YouTube.

    • omgsean1

      What is going this comment since I was read a lot of forums till I read Gran_Turisman’s comment, I was feel like what is the freak? Now I don’t want to race with you guy, I just want to cruise and race with other people for fun not with you for challenge me because I am not a very fastest driver to get up top 100 in GT Academy 2013 due to a little leak of reflex and have a Logitech Drive Force wireless from 2011 don’t get good at time trial or racing.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      So go to bed and stfu! I’m over dealing with you pathetic keyboard warriors! If you guys ever want to see a little of the what’s what, hit me up! I’m done wasting my time typing to pathetic people sitting on their computers typing away! All I know is saba2th can’t place below 50,000th place, pit crew talks big but won’t back it up, sepulturite and quakebass is band wagon jumpers, tokoturismo is a casual ( keyboard warrior) and everyone on these comments have no proof to their skills and I do.

    • sayba2th

      Blah blah blah. All I smell is the stench of your pompous drivel. Turisman I own you never forget that you need to seek approval from me before you do diddly go cook me some eggs

    • sepulturite

      +1 sayba

    • sayba2th

      by the way OMG is quite easy to read gran_tursiman, it’s your comprehension skills or lack there of are what is apparent. You may need a dictionary if you are struggling or there is the literacy and numeracy hotline if you need. Oh wait you probably can’t even read this………

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      wow saba2th is that all you have to say? Funny because you cant criticize my driving skills? All I have to say is saba2th CANT PLACE BELOW 50,00TH PLACE NOW WTF DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT BIATCH?

    • TokoTurismo

      @ GRAN_TURISMAN You need to stop. Really, you’re making yourself look silly. Oh wait, you already are. You said you have a wife and kid, right? Than what are you doing on here, go spent time with them instead of internet bullying.

      This is becoming more funner everytime you post on here. And no, nobody here isn’t a keyboard warrior but YOU. xD

    • TokoTurismo

      +1 sayba2th. That was nice. :)

      @ GRAN_TURISMAN You’re swearing now? Wow this man. xD

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

    • sepulturite

      Your looking more and more pathetic with each post GRAN_TURISMAN, like toko said you need to stop now. I cannot believe your a 36 year old man with a child, it’s people like you that shouldn’t be allowed breed lol

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      My wife and kid are sleeping so I got all night to battle you guys, so bring all you got. I’m not stopping untill I get banned!

    • TokoTurismo

      AHHhhh what? Why will you… o_O OMG this guy is losing it now… Yeah I’m done for the night, that’s going waaaay to far.

    • TokoTurismo

      +1 sepulturite.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      its funny how you guys have to bring my family in this because you got nothing on me or my driving skills. I’m not attacking your family or anyone else except your pathetic skills at GT nothing else! So if you want to stoop so low as to bring in my family in this then you are really the pathetic person who needs to look in the mirror, not me!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      what do you have to say 4 yourself now?

    • sepulturite

      I’m stooping low because it’s the only way to communicate with an inbred like you. Anyways good night all! :)

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      did you guys know that sayba2th cant place below 50,000th place in a time trial? Just in case you didnt know, ill tell you again!

    • sepulturite

      Im sure sayba loses sleep over that every night lol. Sad sack!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      once again you cant say $#!+ about my driving just insults about me personally. If you have noticed I havent said 1 word about you guys personally, just how you back down from a challenge and cant back it up like I can! I dont have to stoop so low as to bring in anyones family because Im not a terrible soul, just a competitive person that loves GT! nothing else just My love for GT!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      I thought you said that you are going to bed! GTFO of here with your tail between your legs and just know who the real GRAN_TURISMAN here is!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      I will get the last word in just so you know, I got all night with nothing to do! oh yeah did I mention that SABA2TH CANT PLACE BELOW 50,000TH PLACE IN A TIME TRIAL?

    • TokoTurismo

      GRAN_TURISMAN YOU go to bed. Just zip it, zip it, ZIP IT! That’s enough out of you!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      LOL i THOUGHT YOU SAID THAT YOU WERE LEAVING TOKO? like I saifd I will get the last word in so keep bringing it dude! oh yeah here is a tissue for your face! you missed a spot lmfao!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      DID I MENTION THAT SABA2TH CANT PLACE BELOW 50,000TH PLACE IN A TIME TRIAL?

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      COME ON! I know somebody has something to say! Are we finally done here?

    • sepulturite

      Yeh I think we should leave him now toko cos apparently he has all night to waste despite having a wife and kid! Awesome family man you are lol. And something you need to take from all this GRAN_TURISMAN is that no one cares how good you are, no one cares if you can beat us, you’ve been going on and on for hours now and the only reason people are annoyed is because your being a complete a$$ about it, not because they are annoyed that you would beat them, so get over yourself. As I said no one cares that much!

      Good night all!

    • sayba2th

      “Sepulturite stfu I already put you in check. I thought you said that you had a life and had better things to do” no Turisman again you don’t do squat I own you and checked you like Viswanathan Anand (World Chess Champion 2007-present) so you need to recognise. Not only are you being recoginised as one of the premier a-holes of GTP but as being my B. Your’e a broken record all you have done is waffle the same BS and insult people pesronally don’t make me post more of your own ramblings and fire them back at you. I can fire back all day cause I am always a step ahead of you.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

LMFAO what do you hve to say about that well known fact. and sep has to keep bringing in my family which is a low blow, but thats what I expect from someone that is about as dense as a post!

    • sayba2th

      13 and a kid to his sister makes him a family man alright. Remember you know what messages you sent me so let’s stop fooling around you got personal on insults so remember what you were told before, throw sand at me first and I will dumptruck you in return.

    • TokoTurismo

      Don’t worry sayba2th, you pretty much took him down anyway. We should leave him alone now, he won’t stop. :)

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      so what is your comeback SAYBA2TH FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO PLACE BELOW 50,000TH PLACE IN A TIME TRIAL? JUST ADMIT THAT YOU ARE A NOOB AND COULDNT FIND YOUR WAY AROUND A RACETRACK IF YOU TRANSPLANTED SEBASTIAN VETTEL’S BRAIN INSIDE YOUR THICK SKULL!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

    • sayba2th

      all you have left is the 50000 garbage, I haven’t lodge a time on the trials in months. I did the one on the weekend, yes I have cracked the 50k mark. Go waste some time looking for it and then come back and insult me about where I am placed. Read you sucker. Owned again. All day! Please keep going so I can continue making you look foolish

    • sayba2th

    • Swagger897

      Quite the lying fruitcake we got here.. after you “dared” us to waych your account only to increase your views, to say the least… ya suck. Nothing professional about how you drive. Really you just floor it in there, brake not to go off line (if you even drive one), and whip it out like a jr high kid would do…

      Its quite pathetic to see someone with no skills at all rant about how good they are in comparison to nothing..

    • Swagger897

      I think the only thing I see here now is a high school girl with everything given to her and no work required to get it, and blowing off daddies money..

      Also, how long have you been living in florida.. or will you not stand up to this challenge

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Dont forget to pop some popcorn and subscribe and like my videos lol! yea like that will ever happen with this crowd! lol any ways I’m going to bed so sayba2th go ahead and say anthing you like I’ll be up in the morning to put you in your place once again! REMEMBER FOLKS SAYBA2TH CANT PLACE BELOW 50,000TH PLACE IN ANY TIME TRIAL HE ENTERS AND HE WILL AND HAS ADMITTED THAT!

    • TokoTurismo

      “sleep tight don’t let the Sayba2th bite” That quote sounded cool Sayba2th, haha. :)

      I should use that in my comic. :D

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      LOL Swager! how did I know you were going to say something like that? Its funny because I leave thoes GT Academy Finalists in the dust so what you are really saying is that they drive bad also? I just want to be clear here because I did beat them by a few seconds so are you putting down the driving skills of a couple of GT Academy Finalists Also?

      Make up your mind where I rank.

      Never said you can’t drive I just could care less if you can or want to have anything to do with neanderthals like you

      Funny that I got a year on you, just proves how some of us evolve while others just stay in a cave.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      you make no sense Sayba2th you already admitted to not being able to place lower than 50,000th place, then you sai that you finally cracked the 50,000th place barrier lol make up your mind. YOU SUCK AT DRIVING ANYWAY YOU LOOK AT IT JUST ADMIT IT YOU PATHETIC WASTE FOR A LIFEFORM!

    • sayba2th

      I’LL TELL YOU AGAIN! SAYBA2TH CANT PLACE BELOW 50,000TH PLACE IN THE WORLD ON A TIME TRIAL!

      Another flaw. Below 50000 means 50001 and onwards

      you should be posting SAYBA2TH CANT PLACE ABOVE 50,000TH PLACE IN THE WORLD ON A TIME TRIAL!

      Meaning I can’t get higher than 50000

      Simple math really if you have a brain

      See I even have to insult myself for you as I do a better job of it.

    • Swagger897

      Ohh whats this?!?!
      Mr. Incredible, Mr. Abominable, the one and only just backed down… from a challenge?

      Whauuuut? This is unheard of…said by himself to never back down from a challenge..(note that context of what the challenge conditions of were never mentioned. Under rules and conditions by the end users license agreement[found by calling nevereverlend at n-eve-reve-rland] this post is being watched) lol.. that was a waste of time typing frim my phone just like you are right now…

      Said you got all night… well its hump day right now and I aint getting off of it too soon enough..

    • sayba2th

      Those were your own words Gran_Turisman you need to work yourself but since you fail at math that won’t happen so again you have been schooled. BTW it’s 2:22 in the afternoon. Try knowing about the world you live in oh that’s right you do yours as it’s the only place that in your mind exists.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      @swagger897 so what is your response? are you sayin that those GT academy Finalists cant drive either because I beat them? Or are you just mad to actually see that I was telling the truth the whole time about being able to beat a few GT academy finalists? Its funny how you arent responding! you dont want to cut down a few Gt academy finalists now do you? Just give me the credit thats due I beat them and you know it you saw it! lmfao you guys will sitck together to the end on this forum! one lies and the other swears by it! lol I know I can drive and smoked those dudes so give credit where credit is due!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      sayba2th are you really that dumb? you want to place with a lower number on a time trial not a higher # dumba$$. Maybe in Australia their math is a$$backwards! lol so you are saying that 50,001 is better that 50,000th place! wow you are stupid!

    • Swagger897

      What..? I believe I asked first.. how long you been down there in florida?

      Don’t think I ever cared to ask how you beat those gta drivers.. face it, you’re running out of answers because every trolls pitt of gold runs out.. oh wait. That’s for a leprechaun, which both of us know of which you’re not

    • Swagger897

      Do both of you agree that the number one is the top, and negative infinity its the bottom?

    • sayba2th

      Wow gran_turisman, you backed down from Swag. You have nothing left now.

      Well Swagger I gotta hand it to you cuz A+. Talks the talk, walks away.

    • sayba2th

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      yOU GUYS MUST BE SMOKING CRACK! Below 50,000th place would include 1st place because first place is below 50,000th. I cant believe Im having this dumb discussion with you idiots!

      Dang.. just sneezed all over my phone.. eww

      On the other note, he will most likeky be coming back till we see a yellow message saying hes been banned, or the fact that he ain’t to bed yet..

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      sayba2th you have some of the dumbest comebacks I have ever heard! it’s pathetic! Its funny how swagger897 has nothing to say about my question about the gt academy finalists being bad drivers because I beat them! and sayba2th has no comeback for his pathetic showing in the time trials! you guys are a waste of my time i’m going to make love to my wife now. have fun stroking your little ausie!

    • Swagger897

      Main point I asked about florida was that I saw a vid of yours about you in a parking lot covered in ice.. it def doesnt freezeover in florida so iI was doing the aame as any other little invetigator, weeding out the fakes..

      Anyways, there are some of us who are in school, and some who have the gratuity to be employed, so we must get sleep..

      As for me, im the former and in desperate need for phone juice.. (not sure what android juice is called..). Maybe a little more analysis might prove that you are decent at this thing called a game, but virtual doeant always transfer to reality..

      It still does not take away anything youve said previous to me and helps the community at all.

      I have noticed a trend of all these new accounts that have never before seen appear on this “forum” as you call it, discussion as I. But anyways, these new accounts clutter important info that developera actually look at to see what the community wants. Im unable to pitty the fool you have created of yourself. A selfish, ever growing egomaniac like you should create your own website about the negativities ofthe humanities of people and the effects on the conformation of asociety. Im surw how ever there are billions of people who will come running to you and praise you for what you do.. no wait, that will just creaye a negative of a negative whixh is a poaitive..

      Now my thimbs are sorw, im about rwady to use stinits to hold up my eyes, and my body below my chest is asleep of itself. I wish you good luck and jope youre fingers dont hold the same intelligence as to how you manage your financing. Maybe the wifey takes care of that because she’s the breadmaker, but who cares.

      Youve done a great deal of atresd to tgis community, amd we hope jordan, terronium, and that other cool bloke will take care of not only this acvount, but/ if possible your ip address..

      I bid ado and and it off to you sayba2th..

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      just remember SAYBA2TH CANT PLACE BETTER THAN 50,000TH PLACE ON THE TIME TRIALS BECAUSE HE COULDNT FIND HIS WAY AROUND A RACETRACK IF WE TRANSPLANTED SEBASTIAN VETTLE’S BRAIN INSIDE HIS THICK SKULL!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      SO YOU GOT NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE GT ACADEMY FINALISTS BEING BAD DRIVERS ALSO? THATS WHAT I THOUGHT! YES THATS MY WRX IN THOSE ICE DRIFTING VIDEOS DONT BE JEALOUS ABOUT THAT EITHER OMG YOU GUYS ARE PATHETIC! ITS FUNNY HOW YOU PUT DOWN MY FAMILY BECAUSE YOU GOT NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT MY DRIVING SKILL SO GIVE IT UP ! AND YES MODERATORS PLEASE BAN ME!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      IM OFF TO MAKE LOVE TO MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE! HAVE FUN STROKING YOUR LITTLE AUSIE SAYBA2TH! AND REMEMBER YOU CANT PLACE BELOW 50,000TH ON THE TIME TRIALS

    • Monatsende

      I ask myself: CAN SAYBA2TH PLACE BELOW/ABOVE/BESIDES 50,000TH ON THE TIME TRIALS? :lol:

      Most hilarious “discussion” I`ve ever read on GTPlanet. And all this started with “With GRAN TURISMO simcade physics you will have a lot of car accidents in real world.”? Unbelieveable. Some people are taking GT5 a bit too serious IMAO. But I learned: Each to his own. So let`s get ready for round 2… Dingdingding

    • sayba2th

      Turisman thanks for letting me hear the 50000 bomb a few more times. I have addressed you earlier re the 50000 but you don’t remember rambling about 49999 and 50000 both numbers provided by you. Frankly I have nothing to prove to you. You grind on with your lame taunts you are uncreative & repetitive, have a severe chip on your shoulder, are attention seeking, can’t remember what you have posted yourself, a liar and quite frankly a sad sack.
      If you were so great by 36 you would have gotten picked up by now as a driver. I actually initially believed you were sub 15 with the way you have presented yourself. It’s ok cuz keep believing your own hype / BS. I bet your one of the guys that watches a race on TV and constantly belittles the drivers yelling at the TV and anyone that will listen to you whine about how you could have done that better.

      No Monatsende I can’t place “below” 50000, To give a quick background, I pulled this clown up in a previous post as he was being a right git. Anyway after some back and forth to which he got owned in the words of another GTP member who posted that, he hits me up via PSN account private msgs me some offensive abuse for kicking down his sand castle and “demands” me to race him. Anyways he makes reference to me earlier in this post as “you know who” and it won’t be long before I stick my nose in here and as I told him you throw sand at me I will dumptruck you back. So this is what has transpired. I feel there is no where further to go as he just broken records on the same BS and it’s no fun any more crushing him verbally. You approach people the wrong way then expect a reaction. I am the Seb Loeb of this post and now it’s time to make like the great man and end it here.

    • Swagger897

      i dont understand however where he got that 50,000 stat from..

      is there a website where I can look up where I’ve placed on previous TT’s?

    • Swagger897

      ahh.. found it…

      it seems both of you looking at the arithmetic average are about the same.. (about)..

      But uh… where did you get never above/below/inside/ around 50K because I found..

    • Fire Yoshi

      You know it truly is a sad day (or night) for humanity when we receive a post partially about a car accident Kaz had, then to get a long list of replies like this. I have never seen so many contradictions from a single person in one page…this is record braking. lol
      Although I will admit, after reading about a 4th of this, I made some ramen to eat while reading the rest. Had to sacrifice some braincells though…but I think the ramen gave them back XD

    • loser10

      Better sound will not make you better driver but with better physics you will become better driver!

    • Monatsende

      Ramen? Now I´m hungy.

      I propose a game, every time gran_turisman says the word excuses, we all take a shot. Winner is the last one to die of alcohol poisoning.

    • Sonygamer455

      @TokoTurismo

      Must you add fuel to the fire?!

  22. SaintSaiya

    That explains why there isn’t any car damage,he was scarred for life I guess.

    • That is exactly what he said in another interview.

  23. Rionmoon

    This explains why there are so many G*d D*mnd GT-Rs in all the Grand Thurismo games and at the same time explains why Kaz has been so reluctant to address crash damage in the GT series

    • Normalaatsra

      You know how serious he is when he said his first car “passed away” some article stated long ago.

    • Or how disturbed he is.

  24. Stephanos82

    We should petition that Kaz stops smoking! If he ever gets lung cancer we’ll be denied of the gt title!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Yes, I agree. I would like him to be around as long as possible to prolong the GT title.

    • I only want the best health for Kaz, seriously, but I think GT would be much better off without him at this point. I think he is severely damaging the title, and holding it back now.

    • Who are we to tell him to quit? It’s his lungs. If he wants to smoke his way into an early grave then so be it.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Lol true harvee. I would just like to see GT 15 someday…

    • Quakebass

      …You there’s a PD VP out there right…? If Kaz goes away, PD will soldier on, just as Apple did…

  25. MadmuppGT

    Yawn! No talk of customisation or livery editor…Zzzzzz, Just kidding, but you know those comments are coming… Its almost like that scene in Aliens “10 meters… 9, thats at the log in screen….8…7….6 meters… That cant be thats on the news comments…”

  26. Just About 2 months left :-) All excited!! PLEASE PD DO NOT LET US DOWN WITH A DELAY IN RELEASE

  27. Pedaltotheend

    Bijan Stephen of Kill Screen shared a cigarette with Kazunori…
    Yeah wright, they shared joint.

  28. HuskyGT

    Eww… Kaz smokes. Not impressed at all.

    • RACECAR

      You just now found this out? Most of use already knew this.

    • ScotteDawg

      I took up smoking 30 years ago because Kaz smokes! Oh, wait, 16 years ago…

  29. Blood*Specter

    Is that rig Kaz is sitting in for sale? If so, will it cost your first born male child?

    • No, just your left testis.

    • Swagger897

      … i think id rather just buy a 500 dollar beater up and cut everything from the back of the front wheels off to the end of the T-frame..

  30. GRAN_TURISMAN

    Wow, Kaz smokes cigarettes? That’s a shock to me.

    • A huge proportion of Japanese smoke.

    • Normalaatsra

      Media can create an instant image of a zero-smoking perspective to the viewer, but people smoke as usual everywhere else in the world. Not saying I’m pro-smoking or anything, it is normal.

    • Johnnypenso

      22% actually…not that huge. I think they just have less of a taboo about it than the West that has mad smoking akin to drinking out of a brown paper bag, although I believe that is changing in Japan too.

    • ZoidFile

      I actually more surprised if I meet someone who doesn’t smoke. Its very common here, I would say its the normal thing. I am actually the only one I know, who never smoked in his live. Ironically I have a deadly lung condition.

    • What is ironic are people who would scorn a pregnant woman for smoking, but also champion late term abortion rights. Those are the kind of sickos that express true irony.

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      I don’t smoke, so now you have met someone that doesn’t smoke.

  31. sayba2th

    Always nice to get to know more about the man behind the game. As always article is greatly appreciated!

  32. Halcyon925

    I just want to know..

    1. How did Kaz survive?
    2. Why was he going that fast?
    3. Why do kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

    • BlackHawk1722

      1. Kaz must be epic
      2. Because he’s in a frickin R32
      3. No idea. That stuff is gross.

    • sayba2th

      1) By the skin of his teeth
      2) Because he could
      3) Because they have different taste palettes to adults

    • ScotteDawg

      1 – Coz he’s Kaz
      2 – Coz he’s Kaz
      3 – Coz they’re kids

    • HKSBro92

      Cinnamon toast crunch is the bomb!

    • God
      Stupidity
      high Fructose Corn syrup

    • ScotteDawg

      BWX – you have just proved your stupidity beyond doubt! There is no such being or creature as this myth you call “god”! If there was – according to your so called “God”‘s scriptures – you wouldn’t be commenting on these posts in the manner that you do!

      “Do unto other’s as you would have other’s do unto you”, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone” and “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”

      However, a REAL person, Mark Twain, said it best when he said “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”!

      On the other hand, if you’re just commenting to fulfil some desire to feel important and/or intelligent, you have won (in your eyes) on feeling important and failed miserably at appearing intelligent!

      GO AWAY!!!

    • Someone sure does have a bug in their rug. A big ol’ hissing cockroach

    • OriginalCheezIt

      ScotteDawg, who are you to tell him what to believe?

    • ScotteDawg

      A realist…

    • That_guy100

      @ScotteDawg
      You are an ignorant git! Who the hell are you to insult someone and call them stupid over their own religious beliefs? It’s their business whether they want to believe in it or not. Not yours. So I don’t see why you would get butthurt over BWX simply just typing “God”. It’s not like he was forcing his religion on you or anyone, and he only said the name. If anyone has showcased their stupidity here, it’s you. And then to arrogantly force your own views on him after insulting by saying “No such being exists” as if you know everything about the world, and everything that happened before it (which you don’t). There is no evidence to prove that he doesn’t.

      Stop being a close minded, intolerant a$$hole and realize that the world is full of people from different walks of life who have their own beliefs and ideals. Calling someone “stupid” because they have different views than you do is incredibly childish and ignorant, as well as completely unwanted and not tolerated in this society. If you don’t believe that a deity exists, that’s fine. If you do, that’s fine as well. Just stop attacking people when there is a difference in opinion. They aren’t hurting you in any way, so lay off.

      Good day, sir.

    • ScotteDawg, I will pray for you so that God may take that large stick out of your bleep and give you some peace so that you can be a calm happy person and not mean old cranky curmudgeon who feels the need to force his opinion on people and call it fact because it makes you feel better about yourself.

      It is well known that people with low self esteem need to try to put others down so that they can temporarily feel better about themselves. So because of that I will also pray to God that he may help you rise out of this funk that you are obviously suffering from, and maybe he can help you feel better about yourself someday. Maybe that will also help all of the souls out there that you try to belittle, make fun of, and bully on a daily basis, just to keep yourself from crying in a fetal position under the covers, wondering how you ever sunk so low in life, all day long.

      I get it. Life is rough.. and you are emotionally challenged, so you just want to try to get through the day. If raging on random people on the internet who happen to say the word “God” helps you make it till the ‘morrow, then so be it. Rage on brother Dawg, rage on. Just know that your actions have consequences, sometimes unintended negative consequences, and it could have consequences on your eternal soul.

      Maybe some day, with intensive therapy and hard work on your part, in the not too distant future you will be able to make it through the day without raging and trolling on random internet forums, and still have some self esteem left at the end of the day in reserve. Hmm, a reserve of self esteem, kind of like a reserve fuel tank, only made from love! Instead of the reserve you have now, which is a tank full of sadness and despair as you so clearly exhibit that you are experiencing now.

      Maybe someday, with help from above, and hard work, you will see the light and realize that you do not need to act like a basket case, and give all the reasonable atheists out there that actually have self control and that are emotionally stable, like Bill Maher, a bad reputation.. wait, bad example.. like Larry Flynt, wait, he was a pornographer, and probably drove a 240z, another bad example. Like Hitler, wait, he was mass murderer and hated God and anyone who believed in any god too, and killed millions. Like Bradley Manning, wait, he’s a treasonist.. like Lance Armstrong the talented cyclist! ..wait, he’s best known for being a liar and cheater… hmm, more well known people in history, like Joseph Stalin.. wait, he was a mass murdering dictator.. maybe Mao Zedong? Nope, not a good atheist, he killed millions as well. Kim Jong Il.. nope, he was a bad atheist too, he had over 250,000 people confined to re-education camps and known for starving his population while living a lavish lifestyle of a king, a brutal dictator.. I guess not a good example of a stable good hearted atheist. Lenin.. wait, nope he was an atheist and communist dictator who was also a mass murderer.. Alfred Kinsey? Nope, he was a weirdo that exploited children for sex. Napoleon Bonaparte? Hmm.. he had ambition, which is good right? hmmm.. but responsible for about 6 million dead Europeans. Not a good example. Jeffrey Dahmer? Nope, another bad atheist, he was a serial killer.. Pol Pot? Uhh, nope, another evil atheist responsible for millions of deaths. Jim Jones. wait- he convinced people to drink the kool-aid.. killed a bunch of people, and masqueraded as a Christian, not a good atheist. Mussolini? Nope, another pesky mass murdering dictator who committed genocide, and was also anti-semitic.

      I am sure that it is just a coincidence that most of the dictators who came to power and committed mass murder and ethnic cleansing and genocide were atheists. Also the serial killers and other generally bad people.. It is just the first bunch of famous atheists who came to mind. I am sure there are just as many God fearing decent people who became dictators and committed mass murder. I just can’t think of any off the top of my head. It probably isn’t fair to lump all the evil dictators I could think of in a group and then find out that they are all atheists as well..

      Hmm. the smartest person I can think of is Einstein. he wrote: “In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.”

      He also said: “Your question about God is the most difficult in the world. It is not a question I can answer simply with yes or no. I am not an Atheist. I do not know if I can define myself as a Pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable? The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations …..”

      So I guess you must be smarter than Einstein. Wow, that must be cool. Either that, or Einstein is smarter than you, and he is right, that you and your relatively small intellect cannot grasp the enormity of it all, and are not capable of knowing for sure whether or not there is a god, just like the rest of us. I am sure if you were to meet Einstein, you could convince him that there is no God with your wonderful personality and charm, and.. wait.. nope, he would probably just think you had a mental deficiency after you started calling him names because he mentioned the word “God” before..

      It would sound like this:
      “Einstein, you have just proved your stupidity beyond doubt! There is no such being or creature as this myth you call “god”! If there was – according to your so called “God”‘s scriptures – you wouldn’t be commenting on these posts in the manner that you do!”

      After all, he also talked about the deity(s).. So by default you are smarter than Einstein too. Or else the truth is, you have a serious emotional problem that causes you to have uncontrollable outbursts of rage on random internet forums if you see the word “God”…. Man, that is a serious problem, I feel for you man, that must be a terrible thing to have to live with on a daily basis.

      Maybe you should talk to a professional about this problem of yours. I am truly concerned after your recent outburst, that you need help. I will pray that you receive it before you slip deeper into this obviously painful period in your life. Seriously dude, get help before it’s too late.

    …this interview is like three weeks old.

    • TokoTurismo

      Hmm… Is that some sort of problem??…

    • Actually, one is two weeks old, one is a week old, one is three days old…but who cares about facts when attempting a disparaging remark, right? :)

    • sayba2th

      Sometimes I wonder how many times Jordan you guys bang your heads on the desks when reading some of the replies you guys get to your articles and news.

    • Pit Crew

      ^ lol me dueces sayba2th. I’ll say out of the three who write the blogs, T-12 will respond to the more bizarre OPs before Jordan and Famine will ninja you so bad once a post gets under his skin, you kinda don’t wanna come back anymore. LOL

    • sayba2th

      hahahaha true PC, I think this sums it up best “Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.”

    • Swagger897

      ^^ one of the best replies to a fool without knowledge and facts.
      But you could like, totally like, tell it was three weeks old like, because of the fact that like, I saw it on GTplanet like, three weeks ago like…

      (or maybe that’s how i was interpreting it)

    • QuikSlvr223

      That is correct, Jordan! :D

  34. Normalaatsra

    Could a course be potentially included in the GT series given a year’s worth of time? But considering how long the layout of Mount Panorama is, how long would that take to cover a shorter circuit, and something that takes a lot of detail to achieve like street courses?

  35. GT_Racer22

    Now we have more proof that (some) tracks are laser scanned. In the Mount Panorama gameplay, I thought I saw the car bouncing around a lot and a lot of sealed cracks.

  36. ameer67

    Why am I (usually) the first one to comment?

    Anyways, thanks for the article Jordan.
