Classic Game Room reviews the first GRAN TURISMO game released for the Playstation in 1998! This is the 1st Gran Turismo and the one that started it all, created by Polyphony Digital for the Sony PS1 back in the day. A combination of a racing simulator and arcade style driving game, Gran Turismo had car licenses from Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Aston Martin, TVR and many others. Buy cars; modify them with mufflers, computer chips and new transmissions; and drive in a variety of cool races on well designed tracks like Deep Forest, Trial Mountain, and Grand Valley. GT1 was revolutionary and exciting, fun and addictive. Although Sony and Polyphony outdid themselves on the PSone with Gran Turismo 2, GT1 remains a true classic worthy of playing once more.
