Not everyone is a car buff. Some of use just want to see metal get mangled, crushed, flipped, and otherwise mutilated. Up until this point, Gran Turismo got a big “fail” in that category. Thankfully, Gran Turismo 5 is taking care of this problem, and not only inserting nifty physics-based damage, but letting the cars flip in precarious positions to be further destroyed.
Sure, you’ll be able to simulate actually racing fancy cars and stuff, but you can’t sit there and not think about doing a full 180 at the start of the race and heading straight into the competition going the wrong way to see the results, rigt?
