26 or 27, I don't know really (born in May of '82), haven't keep track since I was 21. Been playing GT since about year after GT1 came. Would have got it sooner but, It was hard to buy a $40 dollar game on a $5 a week allowance.:)

I'm 53 and holding. I've been playing GT since I purchased my TV at BB in Sept. '07 and saw GTHD running on a PS3 and told the salesclerk, "better add one of those to the bill while you're at it". I then downloaded the GT5P Japanese Demo and imported the JSpec version when it came out. Can someone out there tell me how to put this game down? :)

Not sure what you mean by Rock music fan? Spy Hunter is a top down driving action game in pursuit of enemies. The arcade cabinet had a wheel. Awesome looking cabinet. I used to go to the arcades a lot and play these with the wheel. It had about 10 wheel cabinets with different boards added regularly.
:)

No no, I know what Spy Hunter is, I meant that this game with motorbikes and dressing your character (with new helmet etc.) is other game that I do not know the name of. Hmm I had no idea that Spy Hunter was in arcades too - cool :)
Did you try WRC games but PS2 editions ? quite god especially tracks in Germany or France with super grip roads but with mega fun full hand break - really worked, and in WRC transmissions on eurosport one can see that those drivers actually use hand break.
If only all these wheels wouldn't be that expensive :(

Sorry for OT

27 years old and been playing since gt1.

Does anyone remember the gt2 demo disc that came with a gamer magazine?

You could only drive a yellow Fiat Coupe'. The turbo sound was terribly high piched, the frame rate was slow, and the graphics were super pixelated. I'm so glad polyphony got rid of the bugs...

Hopefully GT5 will surpass my expectations again once again.

I'm 27, been caning GT since i borrowed a PS1 and the original GT1 from my friend back in 98. there was a 5 or 6 year gap from about 2001 onwards when i didn't have a tv that i could use to play, but since acquiring one, i've been back into it full steam ahead!

i now play GT4 almost every day. still never used a wheel, maybe one day when i have some cash to buy one.

i expect i'll be able to afford a ps3 around the time ps4's are released....

I'm 36 and I've been playing GT since it came out too. I had just got back from being stationed in Japan when GT1 came out. So it was great to be able to play with all the cool cars I saw while I was there. I came home telling my friends how awesome Skyline GTR's are and it was cool that I could show them with the game.

I'm 13, and I've been playing since 2002, when I got GT Concept. Since then, I've gotten all of the main GT's and GT5P, with the exception of the first, which I will EVENTUALLY get off of Amazon.

I bought WRC4 on PS2. Very good game. Really like the layout and feeling of going fast with well done traction which made it fun again like CM1.

Here's Jaguar XJ220 on mega-cd

29 and like most of us bought Sonys consoles because of GT. From PS1 to PS3...from GT to GT5p.

I think its great to see the different age groups coming together under the GT banner. Kaz and PD will be proud.

long live GT!👍
