Or the moment you realized that Gran Turismo was really special? It was either May 12th or 13th, 1998. The first turn I ever took in GT - the first hairpin of Grand Valley East in a Supra starter car. I plowed right off the road, barely beginning to change direction. My fears were confirmed: I knew nothing of how to actually drive. I realized I would have to master the game at that point. So all of the amazing stuff to come was just bonus Seeing this PCars post on the main page a while ago made me feel nostalgic for GT. I think lots of us get that way when a new GT launch is imminent.
