I would.

Honestly, I could pretty much overlook everything else, if the AI wasn't still zombie like. It just ruins the experience. If they could somehow patch that, and I'm not sure that would be possible, I would be more accepting. Hard to really put yourself in the driver seat when the AI drives their set line without reacting to you in any way, and not capable of being put off the track even after a hard impact, or instead they put you off the track when they *** end you from behind because you braked 5ft early. Absolutely disappointing. Forza AI might not have been perfect, but it was MUCH better, at least good. GT5 AI pretty much turns a close race into bumper cars, since you have to slam AI to get around them when they turn into you when your passing on the inside, or hit and push you into a spin from behind.

OK so are those screen captures of real-time live gaming, or some kind of playback/capture/lookatmycar mode? I care more about the live play, less about the bling.

Those are from the Photo Mode. I messed with exposure and all kinds of **** to tune the picture the way I wanted it. Play GT5 with a G27 wheel and you won't be disappointed.

that's a good idea. and to those without a steering wheel, wtf?
would you go play golf without clubs? go rollerblading without rollerblades? it's not gonna fix everything, but wheel and pedals are essential driving. even simulated driving.

If I had an actual racing sim, I would have a wheel and pedal setup, but no console game has ever achieved near simulation levels. At least not enough to warrant me spending several hundred dollars. I've always gotten by perfectly fine with racing games with my dual analog.

Gave it another try, and still pretty much hate racing. No matter the car or mods, the goddamn things love to have snappy over-steer and regaining control from a slide often leads to a snap in the other direction and into a wall. The only saving graces I have found are b-spec mode and photo travel mode. b-spec allows for a little bit of input to control your computer driver, and you still earn credits, and the photo mode has lots of options. Mine didn't transfer well over to my computer, seemed just right on my TV, but on my monitor, they are all over exposed. For some reason photoshop wasn't recognizing the jpg's and I couldn't open them to fix the exposure problems.

Next you'll be saying I should buy a rifle-shaped controller for playing CoD:MW2, spoolin'.

nice shots anyway. I don't use post-editing software outside of GT. Maybe your TV is just weird. What do you upload your pics to?

And a rifle controller for FPS is stupid unless it's on-rails like House of the Dead or Time Crisis. Mouse and keyboard are optimal devices for FPS. Stering wheel, pedals, and shifter are optimal for racing sims.

I'm sure it's because I like my TV dark with high contrast, and I prefer my monitor bright with high contrast. Just the setting differences between the two. I uploaded to flash drive and transfered.

Has anyone ever told you you're terrible at differentiating between a serious post and a sarcastic one?

Again, nothing I have seen out of GT5 is "racing sim" like, AT ALL! On a 0-10 scale, 0 being OutRun, 10 being real driving, I'd give GT5 maybe a 7, Forza 3 maybe an 8.

IIRC the controller sticks are prone to being hard to steer with. I think maybe the controller is non-linear. So, not choosing sides, I would not conclude it is GT5's problem until trying it with a wheel.

More in-car vid, less out-car pictures. This is mt.n not cr :P

Well I've never noticed nonlinear action from any other games on the PS3, so I'm going to have to stick with it being GT5.

Another annoyance, god forbid you leave the game idle for a few minutes, it goes into sleep mode or something, the GT logo comes up and thats where it stays. Kind of like it's trying to reload the intro movie, but never does it. So I have to restart.

Also seems there is already a 133mb update released, just minutes ago.

^ it's an online server update. Nothing important, as I don't give a flying **** about online racing yet.

I'm gonna take a vid of the Mazda AZ-1 on Autumn Ring tomorrow since I love it so much.

I have to give it to them for the photo mode rendering. Absolutely amazing. These don't look even close to as good as they do up on the 56'' screen.

Look at that detail: (those first two macro shots could nearly fool someone into thinking it was real)

As impressive as that photo stuff is, wouldn't you prefer realistic car handling, accurate engine sounds and impressive AI?

I know I'll likely never use the photo mode, it's a racing game not photoshop....

I guess you haven't read my previous 8-10 posts in this thread where I am disgusted with this game and it's terrible... everything. Just trying to grasp for something somewhat redeeming, and photo mode is all I can find.
