    Gran Turismo 4

    I am hooked on this game. I spent the whole afternoon playing this. It is HARD. I wasted all my money on a Dodge Viper which is just far too fast to handle unless you are practised and which depreciated by 75% as soon as I bought it. Anyone else got this?

    I don't have it, but I do own 3 (PS2), and that game is fun as hell. I haven't played it in forever, but that's because PC games are such a bigger draw for me than the console environment.

Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

    Wow, that's very realistic. Just like an American Car!

    i've been drooling over GT 4 for a long time and now that it's out i have yet to play it, mostly money issue atm, so many other things to get!

    incidentally, most cars you buy atleast in previous version lost value as soon as you bought them, it's a way to balance the game so you keep cars in your garage and play the games over and over rather than trade cars and only play what you have to!

    Re: Gran Turismo 4

    I'm also hooked on this game. My PS2 has been on for weeks now, I'll bet I play atleast 4 hours a day... very addicting game. I've got my A, B, iA, iB licence, and have accumulated over 3 million in prize money so far. Somehow, early on in the game (I think it was the Japan Events) I won this insanely fast car. I now blow through the pro circuits like there's no tommorow.

    Anyways, I'm back to the game. Just typing about it makes me want to play more!

    What is it called?

    I won an FR Nissan OPTION on a japanese event I think, which is pretty good.

    I found out that racing tyres make it stupidly easy to brake and turn. Always use these when you can. My 1000 BHP dodge still wore the mediums out in 5 laps though.

    Just got that. It owns. Doing the nurburgring guide run in 10 mins for the IA licence was a massive pain. There is a TV programme here called Top Gear and the presenter tried to do it in a diesel saloon and got 9:59 after two days of attempts.
