I OWN in the GT1,2 and 3 games. I love the simulation. I have an out of body experience and become one with the machine.

I just started playing Sports Car GT (for PC's...made in 2000?) that I bought a couple yrs ago in a combo pack for $10. My old comp wouldn't play it, I just recently discovered I had it:)

This game runs neck and neck with PS's GT series. So if you see it on some clearance rack, or I think Wally World always has older cheap games...buy it!:cool: You WON't be dissappointed.

BTW.......Radio Shack is where you can get the $16 adapter for hooking up a PS2 controller to your comp.

ALSO.....I bought NHRA Drag Racing: Top Fuel Thunder at Costco for $16....ultra realistic! and I've only tried it a few times and I haven't won a single race:eek: Something is hardcore about this game I think:cool:

No idea about the X-box controller.

No rally in the Sportscar GT....but it was pretty lame in GT# anyways.
Supposedly GT4 is gonna kick some serious ASS! But hey, that's what they always say right?

Is there as much car selection as in GT?

We've tried the wheel controllers for playing GT3.......WAAAAYY too slow. A regular hand held controller is sooo much faster.
I have a link in my old comp to a REAL race car setup controller. I'm talking an actual race seat on meatal frame work, pedals, wheel, shifter...everything just like in a real car! Crazy!

You're right about that, but for realism it sure is fun. i ahve seen that seat thing too, that would be the ultimate.

Not as much. But some real sweet race cars for sure. The tracks are duplicates of real tracks...more so than than GT# actually. And the classes are GTQ, GT3, 2 and 1 just like on TV...all those cars are available:cool:

GT2 I think is better than GT3, but I have both. I can't wait for GT4!! Man, that game looks like it'll be so much fun to play!

GT2 was the best. It had almost 500 cars and i just had way more fun with it than with GT3. THe driving in GT3 felt really mushy and the game should have stayed in development alittle longer.
