Now... I'll admit to not purchasing GTS yet, mainly because I'm doing the wait and see, so this is not another "dis thread" especially to GTS. It could apply to many of the newer race games as well. I'll try and explain what I refer to as the GT fun factor. Having played GT3, GT4, GT5 over the many years and having played them to their full extent, (...and I mean full !), I just feel that from what I've been reading and seeing here, is that GTS is missing that childhood type of toy-ish Christmas-e thing I call the racing game fun factor. After all it is a game and not meant to annoy, frustrate, or basically get one po'd, angry, or mad. Hell, at might old age, I might have a heart attack lol .... Anyway, first, the graphics display, yes, are very good and actually exceptional from the vids I've seen, but sometimes I feel maybe less is more in the gaming department. In a effort by various gaming companies to create real life graphics they have become almost to good, and imho have lost that fun toy-ish gaming experience. Also, to much online control seems to be the norm now of the game itself. Many won't admit that they loved the cheats, hybrids, much excitement when finding a Easter egg or two and so on. There are many other things of the past GT's that go into this realm of the GT fun factor, but I think you get my drift. Sometimes a picture says a thousand words, kinda what I mean...
