Changed the way we look at racing games forever. It is a stellar beginning to a legendary franchise. Pushed the hardware of the PlayStation to its limits and has stood the test of time to this day. If you play this game once through, you definitely haven't seen the whole game. Replay value is very high for this game and the rest of the GT series.

This game blew me away when it came out. I had never played a racing game that was so realistic before this. Loved the kinda CarPG grind in this too. Still a fantastic racer to this day. :)

Still a fun game but also a reminder of how much graphics quality can change over time.

This is the first Gran Turismo of the series. The music in this game is extremely memorable. I remember playing this game on a demo disc along with Spyro the dragon back then. Everything in the game is very well done, and the cars looked very good for back then. Gran Turismo 1 was a true revolution and important milestone in racing game history!

The overturn in this game is crazy but its still a solid game. It seems more fast pace then in future versions which makes it worth buying even if you have future versions other then 2.

The second video game I ever owned. While I didn't play it until much later (around 2004), the instant I finally popped it into my PSone, I realized how big a fool I was for ignoring it for so long. While subsequent GT titles became more focused on the 'true racer' aspect, this game didn't care about making effective racing lines or being too accurate. And that's why I love this game.

This game was THE reason I embraced the PlayStation. One of the deepest racers for the time, GT deserved all the praise it got 15 years ago, and is still very much playable today. It was also the game that inspired me to know more about cars. Long live Special Stage Route 11!

When i popped this game into my PlayStation back in 98, i had no idea that it was going to be one of the greats.

The start to the greatest racing game series of all time. The graphics don't hold up today but the gameplay certainly does so if you've never played it you owe it to yourself to part with $5 and pick up this fantastic game.

"What else can you do in this game besides riding around the field and harvesting your crops? Some more information about the GAME would be helpful. Is it like Sim City or Harvest Moon?" - aggamer64

 Star Wars Episode I: Jedi Power Battles - Sega Dreamcast
"I've always loved this game. Five different Jedi to choose from. 2 players at the same time. Perfect controls. I would highly recommend it to fans of Jedi games. It is awesome to play with a friend. It gets really hard though. It takes lots of practice." - MrRebelutionary

 Monsters in my Pocket - NES
"Despite this being a short game and rather easy. Monster In my Pocket is great game and a lot of fun to play! If you were ever a fan of Monster in my pocket as a kid you were not disappointed. Pretty much every character from the era were in this game! 2 player co-op is just awesome in it and works well! I had many fond memories playing this with a good friend of mine who also loved to collect MIMP! I remember how surprised we were to see the surprise ending :) So much fun!" - Truxton4life
