    I'm 19 years old, and I remember first renting the original when I was 8 - then later recieving it as a christmas gift for 1998. Back then, the GT games were how I learned about a lot of cars I never knew existed at the time.

    I'm 9 and nearly 10 and I've played nearly every GT game, I haven't played the prologues except GT5P (I played it at my cousins) and I am still asking dad to get the PS1 and GT1 and GT2 out of the loft.

    35 here, didn't catch on to the GT series until the debut of GT3! From there I was hooked for life!

    I'm only 12 and have been playing GT since the first one. I got it with my psone and i was obsessed to the bone with it. GT4 was my favourite of them all(as for all GTP'ers). I really dont know from when ive been playing GT but it would be about since 2002 or 2001.

    32, first played GT1 in uni on flatmates PS, probably about the time when it first came out. I eventually got a PS2 of my own (big silver one) with GT1, 2, 3, and 4, then traded that for a 360, now I have a PS3 too and playing GT5P, waiting for the full fat GT5.

    I'm 23, and I've been playing since 97 December 26. My dad originally got that game for himself which was Japanese or Chinese version? ( Not sure cause it was in hieroglyphs) illegal version in Europe. At that time I didn't care much about cars themselves, but slowly the game grew on me and now I'm cannot get enough of it. Btw playing it right now. Gt5 that is.

    I'm 25 and I have been playing GT since the release of GT3. I'd played the first two as well but really got in Gran Turismo after getting my own PS2 and then it started...............
    I've played GT5P which has spurred me on to get a PS3 when I have the money to. The plan is to buy a PS3 near to the GT5 official release. :)

    lol 17 and bought GT2 probably about 6 months after it first came out I just remember playing that on my original PlayStation. Lol I was playing it a wee while ago and realized how bad the game is compared to the latest installment.

    Edit:
    Lol Que? you aren't even old enough to have played the first one...

    I'm 20 (geez!) and I've been playing Gran Turismo since 1998. My dad bought it for himself so he could secretly play it each night... but I soon discovered it. He began teaching me how to brake before corners and sticking to the racing line. A year later, with much practice… I was teaching him how to drive :lol:.

    I'm 15, and I have been playing GT1 since it first came out. I was around 6 when I first played GT1 and I absolutely loved it! Since then, I have went out and got every GT game the day they've come out. Absolutely loving the Gran Turismo series and I always will. :)

    There are seven people so far in this thread who are older than I am and a1PAPAOSA is not one of them. ;)

    I got GT5P as a bundle when I bough a PS3 in October and it was the first time I ran into one of the GT games.

    I'm 22 and playing GT since 1998 with my family (Mostly arcade en multiplayer with the standard unlocked circuits and cars).
    Later (2001) I got myself a PS one with GT2, and later GT1.
    I bought a PS2, PS3 and PSP just for the GT series :) (I do play other games, but GT is the main raison)

    I didn't finish a 'main' series game for 100% though.
    GT1 about 80%, GT2 about 87%, GT3 99.8 % (Time trial on Complex String, aaaaargh) and GT4 about 64% (after that I got back at playing GT3).
    GT concept, GT4P and GT5P however are all at 100%

    Just because I don't have GT5 OR a PS3 doesn't mean I can't comment here :sly:
    I'm 16, and I've been playing Gran Turismo since I got my PS1. I have played GT2 and currently GT4 in my PS2 :D

    My first GT car was this:


    [​IMG] Nissan Skyline GTS


    It was actually in GT1 but this was all i could find. Got me a long way though. Bought it in nissan used car showroom and it led the road to getting over 100 not for sale race cars in GT1.

    I'm 16, and I think I'm an oddity in this thread in that my first GT game was GT4, and I didn't start playing until under two years ago.

    I did play racing games for quite some time when I was a lot younger, mostly NFS on the PC (II SE, III HP, Porsche Unleashed, etc.). Those weren't the most realistic games, of course, but it did introduce me to the more realistic aspect of racing games. I was introduced to GT4 in a very strange way: my sister decided she wanted to play Dance Dance Revolution at home, which required having a PS2, and after I briefly joined a couple of my (more distant) friends in playing GT4 (very poorly!) at their house, my dad surprised me by buying GT4 for me at the same time as DDR, even though I didn't request it.

    I only played in Arcade Mode for quite some time until I figured out what was going on in GT Mode. I blitzed my way through in typical noob fashion, stopping at some high completion percentage after getting stuck on the Speedster and 206 races and Missions 23 and 34, at which point I played Burnout for a while. I reached 100% when I got back to GT4 and joined GTP to figure out how to beat those races. Then I got into OLR competitions, 200 A-Spec point racing, etc., and am still playing a lot. It helps that I don't have a PS3 for GT5P, I guess, although I would sure like to! But for now, I love GT4; despite its flaws, it's still an amazingly fun game.

    Hey, all. Checking in at the still wet behind the ears age of 44. I began the GT journey waiting for GT2000 to come out. It became GT3 and I became adicted.

    I just turned 33 and I've been playing since 1998.

    Funnily enough, I used to be a Nintendo fan, until in 1998 my roommate flunked out of college, though his parents were filthy rich and he was a drug addict... the moment he flunked out, his parents cut all his income and I ended up offering him $200 for his PSX with about 150 games, 6 controllers, steering wheel and pedals and a bunch of other stuff... best 200 bucks ever spent on so much.

    I've played/owned GT1, GT2, GT3, GTConcept 2002 Tokyo/Geneva, GT4:prologue, GT4, GT5:prologue and Tourist Trophy. Oh, and I've owned both NTSC and PAL versions of all games... not a lot of people can say that :sly:
