    My biggest mistake? Well, I have 2 stories...

    First - I was playing through Formula GT, in that PDF1 car you win at the Nordschleife 24hrs, and I was at second-to-last lap, in A-Spec, on Le Mans, with a small advantage, and I was a bit distracted because, you know, texting x driving + F1, means bad news. What happened? Forgot to brake at the Hunaudières. Still managed a lucky 4th place thou.

    Second: Hunaudières again. It was the Driving Mission 10, and the last corner was arriving. I was behind the violet\red (can't remember) Renault Avantime and I decided to ram it out of the way. I braked a bit. OK... I managed to luckily run into the back of the other car, while making a somewhat spectacular drift (for a minivan), but got 5 secs. penalty and passed a bit off the kerb. Then, on a medieval spectacle of plowing through grass, I finally won the mission by 0.01 seconds. It looked somewhat near the likes of Call of Duty, or Battlefield...

    I should brake earlier...

    No, he hit the wall so hard that the world of GT4 divided by zero and reset his car settings. Should try that in GT5 :tup: .

    This happened to me not too long ago. Turning off the PS2 immediately after the saving icon stopped blinking. You know what happens if you do that. Save corrupted! Apparently the game is still saving just a bit more even if the icon has stopped blinking. Didn't know that this happens until reading about how it also happened to many others.

    After a lot of swearing I remembered that have a Code Breaker and just downloaded another save from the internet.

    Tried to tune a Toyota MR2 to win the MR races...spent almost 80,000 credits buying engine, suspension, turbo, brakes and all the lightening, as well as a slip diff and a spoiler...couldn't catch the guy in 5th place at all....ended up buying the ProtoMotors Spirra instead...

    It took me until 2009 to realise they said
    Welcome To Gran Turismo World
    "L"
    At the north-west corner of the world...

    And it's taken me until ten minutes ago to see that it has my name in big letters in the garage.

    L's Home

    Oh dear

    I think I've done that before. The thing that sucks most about that is when you've got a really good collection of cars. I had a '69 Stingray, SL600 AMG, and other various cars (those are the two I remember).

    i got the 100000 creds for having a gt3 save file and spent it on a Toyota cellica II (the tuned one that is red with grey vinyls) which proved completely pointless, so i ended up using it to do the sunday cup untill i could afford a ford GT! that took me about a month! and then i discovered i could have done it three times faster with b-spec! i was quite pissed off! i reset the game and the second time i bought a lotus elise instead, got my first le mans car after about 3 hours! wow! what a waste of time!!!!!!

    Something stupid I did recently was I bought a Dodge Viper SRT10 and tuned it to the point where it had 969bhp and then had the oil changed to give 1032bhp!!! As mental it was I didn't realise how early I had to brake for the corners. It's that much faster that the first time I drove I went off pretty much at every corner until I realised I had to brake much earlier then what I could before.

    "Accidentally" exited the 24 Hrs of Le Mans which had about exactly two minutes remaining on the clock.
    Never did this race ever again.

    Two, actually.

    1: Letting my car have no fuel 11 hours into the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race. I quit right after. :ouch:
    2: Selling 25% of my cars at the point of a money crisis (including my black GT-One and Peugeot 905).

    Funny that. When I first got GT4, I was eight years old, and couldn't really understand what the game meant when it asked me to put my name down. Instead, I just wrote "Granturism", so that became my GT4 name.

    My biggest mistake in GT4 didn't even happen in-game. My mistake was, and still is, not buying the game. :banghead:

    Maybe you should order it offline. I literally got a brand new copy with the original case and manual for a little over $10 after shipping and handling.

    Never finishing the game. GT4 is the best game in the series to date and I remember enjoying and playing the game all the time, but never got around to 100% completion.

    My PS3 is in storage, so I went and got a whole PS2 setup (console, controllers, memory cards and component cable) for about $50 total. GT3 and 4 for $20 total. And then of course $300 for a new G27 wheel.

    The mistake? Playing them both to almost completion (GT4 twice)! Not a mistake, really, just a whole lot of hours and sore feet and hands.

    Oh yes I remember buying that thing way back in the days. I remember I tried to beat the super car race event and it didn't do too well.
