    Some things you forgot to mention:
    -custom one-make races with standing starts, mechanical damage & fuel/tire wear
    -arcade races with normal rolling starts, 16-car grid, mechanical damage & fuel/tire wear.

    It's really odd how GT6 has more cars & tracks than GT5 but it doesn't have proper racing offline.

    GT6 in my opinion is better, but I think they should of kept the drag track from GT5. I don't see why they wouldn't have. Drifting in GT5 was also a lot more fun. GT6 is jsut weird. After many updates it's not too bad now, but still not as fun as it used to be.

    Hard to say... because I didn't play it in its heyday... got it with my PS3 for GT6. I will say this.

    GT5 has a soul... GT6 does not.
    GT5 has content... GT6 is unfinished.

    GT6 feels like a cashgrab gutted for improved load times and Vision GT.

    Honestly, GT6 should have been GT5 3.0, just update the physics to correct the understeer problem.

    By sheer playtime: GT5
    By career mode: GT5
    By motivation to play (long-term): GT5
    By social interaction (swapping paints and stuff, gifting cars): GT5

    By graphics and physics: GT6
    By loading times: GT6

    Well, retrospectively I should have skipped GT6. The more as it was the first game I bought day 1 at full price. :ouch:

    I like both of them. GT6 has a way better physics engine, I like the Special Events a little bit more (I love Senna and Sierra events) and I like the streamlined factor of the game, but the main campaign is lackluster. I've played every GT and (except GTPSP that doesn't have a career mode itself), it is the most short career on the series so far, relying only on Seasonal Events (that I'm not too fond of) to extend the gameplay. I don't think that GT6 had to give a huge career like GT4 (I like, but it is a little too much for many people and I accept a little smaller career, not a TINY carrer mode offered on GT6).

    Even if I dispise some of the weird concepts of GT5 like the leveling system, the messy interface and the unconsistent graphics, the main career itself is quite enjoyable and provide a fair decent amount of challenge and for some weird reason, cool concepts like B-Spec management aren't on GT6 (B-Spec on GT6 only have the purpose to farm money).

    I prefer GT5 or GT5P just because both were the full games for the price they both originally delivered. Thinking the time I payed full price for GT6 (The Anniversary Edition at that) and getting so less than GT5 was disappointing to me. If today was December 6,2013. I would happily would say it's worth the price.

    For me GT5 wins completely.

    GT mode for single player is a lot better than the single player mode in GT6..

    In GT5 you have endurance races and that was a identity of the saga

    In GT5 you have the second hand cars.. That was also a identity of the saga

    The GT5 game was more difficult overall,it was not at all easy to get a gold medal in the loeb rally or the amg academy or the red bull x....

    GT6 had better driving physics till the update 1.08 for me...and still a lot of the physics are broken, like the camber...

    So for me GT5 is a more "authentic" Gran Turismo and is overall better than GT6.

    I think that GT5 was the better installations of the GT series so far. I think by the end before the servers were shut down PD had made sure that all the little glitches in GT5 were ironed out but some were still a problem. Yes GT6 is a better game with regards to the physics, but all the added features that we have had to wait for in GT6 have made the game into a dumbed down version for those who are new to GT. I'm hoping that GT7 will be better planned and with the same if not more features than the previous two titles. The lack of new cars as well as the never ending saga of Porsche not having any up to date cars in the game is a downer in itself, but other than that we can only make do with what we have.

    I have both on ps3 and i like them both but i think that both games are better than the other in some ways and worse than the other. i like gt5 for its course creator, and the arcade mode is better in terms of quick races having 12 cars that were eather in the same class (example if you do a quick race in a supergt/jgtc race car the A.I would also be in supergt/jgtc cars) in gt6 you have more cars and track but the arcade mode sucks in that only 10 cars on track the A.I would be in just random cars (example i went to do a race in the nissan gtr gt3 and the opponents would be in LMPs, rally and touring cars) other than that both games are basically the same

    GT6 for the most, except arcade mode where is very very big disappointment, and that is sad because for me the arcade mode is for offline entertainment and fun very important.... in all others areas, and the physics of course, the GT6 is better than GT5.

    There's some stuff I miss about GT5, including that "secret" menu we could access toward the end, but for me GT6 is miles better. Tho, as low res as they were - GT5's rain and snow FX were much better. The GT6 rain/snow fx ( cockpit view ) are really poor, compared, even though they appear to have a higher fidelity to them.

    The career was better in GT5, but the thing I missed most was the shuffle racing. So much fun it was to play online.

    I vote for GT6.

    But GT6 missing close-to-stable 60fps in cockpit view. And cockpit view in GT6 is too dark. :( The rest is okay.

    Im for GT6. GT5 has only to offer the two Ferrari F1 cars and Top Gear test track. The rest is in GT6...
    But its a shame about the F1 cars

    GT5 for the car testing features even though they were thread bare and still took years to be DLC'd in.

    I'm pretty sure you don't realise but did you look at the date of when these posts were made? Those posts came from several months before course maker was announced, let alone released

    Absolutely no doubt.

    Do people actually remember what GT5 offered and what GT6 offers?
    The question is without doubt.

    Personal preference is another matter.
    The same as whether people prefer an album from Led Zepplin or J Zay.

    That doesn't detract from the fact GT6 trumps GT5 in many, many aspects.

    I feel GT6 will age much better than GT5 even when the servers go down

    Look, other than removing the Top Gear test track, and a couple of good cars, and the extremely poor curb physics (flipping cars unrealistically) - I think GT6 is better in every way to GT5.

    This is of course excluding everything which makes them the same, which is probably 80-90% the same components between the two of them.

    I did play GT5 a lot more though, but I think GT6 is just a more refined version of GT5.

    It's a tie. GT5 was a better game whereas GT6 is a better driving simulator.

    It's a tough call for me. They were both great in differing ways and both felt somehow... incomplete.
