Video games as good as real life?…

You be the judge, have video games become as awesome as real life? Well, maybe not as awesome… but, we are definitely passing into a time where the visuals in video games are almost indistinguishable from their real life counterpart. Sony has put together a video showcasing the work they put into Gran Turismo 5 and how closely it resembles the real tracks.

Have you ever stopped to think about how far video game graphics have come?  From Pong to Crysis, we have come a long way when it comes to graphics in video games.  I have often set an wondered how much longer it will be before we can’t tell the difference between a video game and reality.  It seems that day is about here.  To demonstrate that fact, here is a video from Sony showing the upcoming Grand Turismo 5 racing game for the PlayStation 3.  The video shows comparisons between the game and a real life drive around the Nurburgring race track if it wasn’t for the video game HUD, it would take a rather keen eye to tell the difference.  Can you tell the difference?
