This is the best of the series. The only thing different from the other games are; better graphics, different car selection (I won't say more cars, because GT2 has the biggest selection), and some different tracks. The cars have taken on a life of their own. All the cars have realistic feels to them. GT1 and 2 did, but did they look this good? I don't think so. The only complaint I have is that they took out Motor Sports Land. Even though that was a slow and small track, it was at a challenging enough to like. But all the other tracks make up for it. I also like that now you can upgrade the racing cars, but not that you can't make your own. I also like that your car now has oil. It makes more sense. But, unlike GT2, their isn't any damage. Well, what's the plot, besides racing and suping up your car? Nothing. There's no reason for one. Just race. I also like the soundtrack. Some songs aren't the best, but the title song ("Are You Gonna Go My Way? (Gran Turismo Remix) is great. I also like "99 Red Balloons". Oh, and unlike GT1 and like GT2, in GT3, you can use your customized cars in arcade mode. And even though it doesn't look like it from the car select menu, if you go into the Settings option, look at the bottom of the screen. It'll say the horsepower of the car.I like to whip the computer's butt. Most of the time, you can beat 'em, if you have a strong enough car (strong as in HP).It's rewarding to race for hours, looking to win a new car, and on the final strip on the last lap, about 50m from the finish line, with no one in your mirror (because you're to far ahead, duh), than go to the left side of the track, hit the handbrake, and spin right across the finish line. SWEEEEEEETTTTTT!
