Flamebait Friday Debate: Was Gran Turismo 5 Worth The Wait?

1 min read


Hey, don’t look at me like that, it’s Friday remember?

You guys have probably had your fair share of Gran Turismo 5 articles and debates by now, but today’s debate is one worth discussing.

Gran Turismo 5 has now been out for over a week and it’s no mystery that the game has its fair share of problems. The game took 5 years to develop, which is the usual amount of time that it takes usual developers to make 2 and half Triple-A titles.

Does it feel like it was worth it in the end? Do you rather wish that the game was released two years ago without weather, damage or day/night cycles and then improved with smaller releases over the next few years? On the flip side, do you think the sales will be high enough to justify the development time needed, even with Prologue selling a good chunk?

Now’s the time to get it off your chest.
