** In ''Sport'', reversing into the pit lane at the start of the Nurburgring 24h circuit can reset you onto the track (not a glitch in itself), but will reset you in first place and crossing the line will finish the lap. This has been exploited for quick money grinding by using the Arcade Mode's Custom Race feature to create a one lap race on the circuit using a Mazda Roadster against Group 1s, which with this glitch can generate hundreds of thousands of credits per minute. As of 1.10, this remains unpatched.

*** The inclusion of 12 additional cars in that same update, all production and tuner models, could also be seen as this after the equally mixed fan reactions to the games' initial car roster being mostly made up of racing models.

** Also in Gran Turismo 1, the TVR Cerbera LM prize car has about 600 horsepower, weighs less than a Miata, and has an unbelieveable amount of grip and downforce, even compared to the other LM cars. Not even the fairly cheaty AI Castrol Supra in the GT World Cup can come close to catching it.

* The introduction of GT League (A single player career mode similar to those in the previous installments) to ''Sport'' could be seen as this after the mixed fan reactions to the game's focus on online racing and the lack of offline content at launch.

* GenreTurningPoint: *The huge critical and commercial success of ''VideoGame/GranTurismo'' in 1998 proved that sim racing could be deep and realistic, yet if made accessible and fun enough, could be as mass-market as ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' and ''DaytonaUSA'', and opened the doors for the sub-genre to co-exist and succeed next to its arcade racing breathren.

* ContestedSequel: ''Gran Turismo 5''. Some of the fanbase has criticized this iteration for tedious grinding, [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts the fact that you can't sell highly expensive cars]] or farm for them anymore, endurance races giving you low sums of money, a poorly implemented paint system, segregated A-Spec and B-Spec modes, no fast forward for B-Spec, a weak track generator, a 20 million credit limit, among other things.

** It's not even out yet, but ''Sport'' looks like it's going to be one of these too for the reasons listed under "Broken Base".

** ''Sport'' refuses to let you save your progress when the servers, [=PlayStation=] Network, your own internet connection or a combination thereof are offline.

** The fandom's reaction to ''Sport'' is this trope incarnate. There are very few changes Polyphony has made from ''6'' that '''haven't''' caused controversy.

** The American version of ''Gran Turismo 3'' had a few metal gems from the Eighties, with "Turbo Lover" by Music/JudasPriest and "Kickstart My Heart" by Music/MotleyCrue as examples. The European version, instead, had a more ElectronicMusic soundtrack... Which still kicked ass, with artists like Overseer, Music/{{BT}} and Apollo 440.
** ''Gran Turismo 2'' did have a great [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e701QHyCr0o intro]] with "My Favourite Game" by The Cardigans (From their album oddly also named Gran Turismo). Both American and European versions had different soundtracks: the highlights of the American soundtrack are "Bodyrock (B & H Bodyrob Remix)" by Music/{{Moby}}, "Now Is The Time" by The Crystal Method, "Push Eject" by the Boom Boom Satellites, "Cars" by Music/FearFactory and Music/GaryNuman, and, the absolute fan-favorite, "Dragula" by Music/RobZombie. The European soundtrack, while being much smaller, still managed to deliver some great tunes, with artists like Ash, Propellerheads and Music/FatboySlim.

440. And don't forget to mention [[Music/{{Feeder}} Feeder's]] "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jjzE44I09c Just A Day (Alan Moulder Mix)]]" from the said intro as well!

*** Even a YouTube comment referred the said track as "[[CrossesTheLineTwice The Sexiest "FAIL" song ever]]."

** From ''Sport'', we have Mission Challenge 8-6: Blue Moon Bay Speedway 15-Minute Endurance. It's a 15-minute race restricted to Gr.3 cars on the Pocono Raceway-esque Blue Moon Bay. It may sound easy enough on paper, but the problem is the AI in this race is absolutely ''relentless'': they always take the optimal line through the three corners, and it's not uncommon for them to spin you out. Another issue is that your car gets [=BoP=]'d, but the three cars that start out in front will always be much faster than you are. A good strategy for this race is to bring out the Subaru WRX Gr.3 with Racing Softs on the front and Racing Mediums on the rear, and pit on either Lap 9 or 12 for tyre change (preferably to Racing Mediums) and refueling, but even then you'll most likely have to resort to underhanded tactics if you want to win.
