When I was a kid, I had a lot of time on my hands, most kids do. I chose to spend a fair whack of it playing games on the Commodore 64, the Spectrum, Amstrad, Amiga, Megadrive, Saturn, etc...
i.e. I played a hell of a lot of games.
One of my friends who I played games with in those days recently said he didn't think he'd be alive when a game as good as GT4 came out (yes, GT5 looks better).
However, I've just finished looking at footage for GRID for the PC.
Take a look at this video if you can
For me, I was always aware the graphics side would reach these levels, and clearly will continue to improve. But the physics engine that demo shows just looks utterly stunning.
So, do I need another game on my list of things to play? No more than a hole in the head.
But it's still utterly stunning what developers can achieve these days.
(yes, probably will end up getting this, looks far too nice to miss out on).
