Gran Turismo is the most overrated driving game ever.
It's also the most dull and pretentious.
Real Driving Simulator? Yeah, ok maybe it's like driving a Robin Reliant round Norwich Airport at 4 in the morning but that's about as thrilling as it gets.

Agreed, though it's still not as bad as F355 Challenge on the Dreamcast.

That was unbelievably cack.

F355 Challenge was genuinely unplayable for me, don't think I ever managed a single lap of a race.

I've never got on with 'realistic' driving sims other than GT3 which although I wasn't very good at, I was actually capable of completing a race without utterly embarrassing myself.

I prefer my racers in arcade, futuristic and kart flavours.

I went back to it last year having bought an HDMI adapter for my dreamcast, and managed to win the championship for the first time.

It was really bloody good. Just because you're no good at something, doesn't make it crap :capnscotty:

Wasn't saying it was crap, it was purely because I couldn't cope with the twitchy handling that I didn't enjoy it , also the dreamcast controller didn't really cut it and using a wheel and pedals wasn't an option for me due to my limited mobility.

I think it's one of those games where you really do need to invest in a dedicated peripheral to full appreciate it, same with flight sims.

Free All Angels and Meltdown are both brilliant albums. 1977 is a fantastic debut as well.

Nu-Clear Sounds was a bit of a wobble (but still had some good stuff) and their last couple of albums haven't been world beaters, but they are a long, long way from being shite.

I like the concept of an intentionally fourth-wall breaking show, but the actual content is awful.

I thought it was an unpopular opinion because if you get a breakfast barm or whatever from a greasy spoon it's almost always got a runny egg. It goes down your fingers and your chin when you bite it, and it's hard enough to get dried yolk off your hands, let alone facial hair.

To clarify: runny yolks are great in almost every other egg situation where the yolk remains intact, but sandwiches should be a clean meal. If the yolk is runny enough to run down the bread then it's overdone.
