    Default Closest PC game to GT series?

    For right or wrong, the few times I've had a go on Gran Tourismo games on the PS2 I've had a whale of a time.

    Is there anything remotely close to them on the PC? TDU seems the closest so far, which I also love, but anything else?

    Hey kal, welcome to TDUc buddy, you took your time but it looks like the trail of biscuits finally worked.

    Hmm as for your question let's see, I don't think there really is anything that has as varied a selection as GT but some good PC sims are rFactor (with a huge modding community), LFS (duh!) and if you can find it there was a game out at the same time as GT4 that had you racing supercars across europe but I can't remember the name of it. I'm sure others will be able to point you to more options though.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Yeah there are lots of great sims on the PC - what was nice about GT was that it wasn't very hardcore sim like - rather it was easily enjoyable on just a gamepad

    Probably because it's the Xbox Live gamercard, sounds like your work doesn't want people looking at game related media or sites. lol Ironic.

    Yes and yes although it's not really hard racing it's more for exotic cars and has a great modding community
