Review: Gran Turismo 6 photo
Review: Gran Turismo 6
by Dale North

Have you ever hopped into your car just to drive? Driving to enjoy being behind the wheel, I mean. I'm talking no destination, no time constraints -- just being in a car to connect with a machine and the road it's on. 

Racing games are great for going fast, and you can certainly do that in a Gran Turismo game. But Gran Turismo 6 is also a driving game. Sometimes it's less about the race and more about the thrill of the automotive experience. Sometimes it's less about being first and more about being in the zone. 

If you're the type of person that enjoys driving around, you'll understand what I'm saying.

Gran Turismo 6 gets a moon buggy, full car list revealed

There are just under 1,200 vehicles confirmed for Gran Turismo 6, and I'm hoping to race what's sure to be the suckiest one of them all, the Lunar Roving Vehicle LRV-001. A new trailer teases some moon action, but I doubt we...
