Top Gear: Playstation vs Real Life

[Media: Video]

It's official, I am now totally a fan of Top Gear. Who would have thought that I would become a fan of a Car TV show? But really, the show has such creative variety in their episodes that I can't help but watch.

This latest video is about the comparison between Grand Turismo (I'm not sure which one it is; probably the second one) and real life. Is it possible to play a track in the game and become familiar enough with it that you could drive the real track in real life? They put it to the test and learned some very interesting lessons. While Grand Turismo is a fantastic driving simulator it doesn't seem to compensate for G-Forces and human mortality.

I lurve it.
