GT5 and 6 played like the previous games; lacklustre sound effects, robotic AI and workable visuals, however the framerate takes a dip if you use in-car view, so it's bumpercam or external for stable/fast visuals.
The problem i've always had with GT is its very clinical, po-faced and joyless. The game presents itself as an automotive museum with no sense of fun (skip to 1:37):
Compare this to a replay from the first GRID, which makes every race look, sound and feel like the most important race in the entire strawberry floating world:
I used to love it, but it really hasn't moved forward despite how much corporate schmoozing Kaz does.
