It always feels funny when people go back to try older entries in long-running franchises. You suddenly remember what made them stand out at the time and what drew in.
Well, Gran Turismo Creator Kazunori Yamauchi recently went back to try out Gran Turismo 2 and 3, and he was shocked with how much he forgot about those titles. During the interview with GT Planet, he talked more on how he hopes to bring some of the older titles charm into future series entries.
But since I started doing the world tours, the players, they’re all young guys but they all bring GT2 or GT3 with them – like, how old were you when this game came out!? So I’ve had more opportunity to play them recently, and it’s surprising how much I’ve forgotten!
Having done all these World Tours, it gave me the opportunity to feel the history of Gran Turismo. It gives me pointers and hints of the things we should make sure that we do in the future of the series.
I think the next title that we’re going to create will be a combination of the past, present and future – a complete form of Gran Turismo.
For now, it seems like Polyphony Digital might bring back some of the older entries’ systems and what made them unique to upcoming Gran Turismo titles. Let us know your thoughts on the topic and your favourite Gran Turismo entry.
