    So, to answer Joel’s question on the podcast : i’m still playing GT5. The best Gran Turismo yet :)

    I still play GT5. Usually everyday. Love what they have done with the updates and have been waiting to play with Torgo since he promised more at Extra Life. ;-]

    To answer your question: Yes, occasionally. Since 2.0 came out, I jump on every now and then and turn laps on my custom race tracks. Love driving my ’73 Nissian GT2000 or ’04

    I love Gran Turismo 5.  I just got it a little while ago when I heard about the update that gives you cockpit view in all cars.  My tags: TRoTP

    I still log into Gran Turismo 5 everyday – especially since 2.0 patch logging in every day boosts your $ & XP rewards to 200%

    Definitely organize community race get together sessions.  The premier Playstation podcast needs to be playing the premier Playstation racer!

    You guys are missing a prime opportunity: You must start calling the Home update report the Matt Damon Home Report.

    Yes, still playing GT5.  Actually, its about all I do play, and I have to fight the kids to do that.

    One of the things I have really noticed since the upgrade is that my wheel (GT Driving Force Pro) is much “tighter” when set to simulation.  For example, my 06 Ford GT is MUCH more responsive since the upgrade, and the feedback pressure is much more realistic.  This makes many of the cars more drivable.

    The only non endurance event I need to master is the Formula GT championship.  Once that is done, Its all online, seasonal, and endurance left.

    If I am not playing GT 5, then its F1 20(now 11 — THANKS SANTA).  This is much improved from the 2010 version as well, with the car handling much less frustrating, although I have only made it through one practice session so far.  Once again, I can’t get the kids of the damn PlayStation.

    P.S.  More circuits in the DLC would be great — there are several from the previous versions that I would like to have return — Seatle in the RB2011 would be an AWESOME challenge.

    I’m still playing Gran Turismo. I”m not that great at it though.
