So for the thanksgiving I visited with family and friends. I also brought along Gran Turismo 5 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Of course my friend grabbed the Gran Turismo 5 first, but what happened next is unbelievable.
I guess you can say this was an intended experiment to see what my friend thought of these two brand new racing games. Gran Turismo 5 was still in the shrink wrap when I brought it over. I had already played the crap out of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and it's no secret that I love it. They writin' stories about my record times on the internet.
My friend immediately grabbed for the Gran Turismo 5, unwrapped it and put it in his Playstation 3. Of course we had to do a system update and an install. It's the Playstation what did you expect I told him. Reports on the internet was that there is a 45+ minute install time for GT5. Luckily we were distracted by family, football, alcohol and turkey. After the install I grabbed the remote and started to look through the menus. I just wanted a quick race so I can see it. I've been waiting for such a long time for this game and the internet has been an unstoppable buzz machine about everything GT5. Well I couldn't just race, I had to do a license test first. First license braking challenge. Ok seems simple enough. The countdown begins and then I'm off down the straight away. There is a giant checkered board at the end of the track, I guess gotta stop there. No problem. Perfect. Wait what? Failed? Aw fuck. I was called for the official turkey dinner start and left the game running right where I failed to brake. I was in shock that I failed the braking test.
