Bleh. It took me all of 20 minutes to get bored with GTA3 when it first came out. There are much better franchises out there...

If all you are doing is running around and jacking cars, then I could see where your boredom could come into play, but the diversity of missions in GTA games is beyond anything that could be considered "boring".

Im with AO on this one.

The games are okay. But they are not the end all be all for me.

Where does the next one take place LA (San Andreas) NYC (Liberty city) or Miami (Vice city). They need to throw a new city into the mix its starting to get boring.

I was debating weather to get GTA4 or not, but opted for Fallout 3. Im glad I did.

Its going to be a remodelled version of San Andreas. So its going to be a new city.

Well you should play GTA4. Its a great game IMO

I'm a veteran of vanilla WoW, so I'm amply familiar with the "go here, do this, bring me back [thing]" game model. Car jacking and other immoral behaviors (see: evil shenanigans) are supposed to be the hallmark of the GTA franchise, so if you can't hook me with that, then you aren't bringing anything worthwhile to the table.

GTA3 was one of the greatest, and if not THE most influential games of all time. A true classic, it revolutionized all of gaming forever. Today, "open-ended"/Sandbox/Do what you want when you want-kind of games are common, thanks all to GTA. I used to just drive through town listening to the radio stations it's that fantastic and innocative. GTA3 brought it to 3D on the PS2 and rightfully deserves to be on the top 5 games of ALL TIME. Can't wait for GTA5. Vice City and San Andreas were amazing.

Its still San Andreas.

And what is the plot in GTA4? Some guy did you wrong so you have to run around and complete missions to take over the town? How about 5? Does some guy do you wrong so you have to run around and complete missions to take over the town again.

At this point in my life, just give me online SNES Mario Kart id be in 100%

GTA San Andreas was a classic. So was Vice City. Didn't play GTA4 because the story and main character looked boring. GTA5 looks better though. Love it or hate it, GTA pretty much changed the way games are done and made. I hope they go back to the serious but fun style of the PS2 ones and not the style that GTA4 looked like, more like Saints Row, but better and less cartoony than that game.

It may have been the first 3D sandbox style game, but it was neither the first 3D game nor the first sandbox style game. Putting the two together isn't really ground breaking as far as I'm concerned. I see that it makes a lot of top 10 lists, but those same lists are also missing crucial stepping stones in the history of gaming, such as Gauntlet. I don't extend those lists a lot of credibility...

Heck, I might even go so far as to say that being the progenitor of a genre does not necessarily make it the most influential. Wolfenstein 3-D is far removed from being the first FPS, but I don't think anyone would doubt that it's the most influential. How many games can directly trace their ancestry solely back to GTA? Off the top of my head, not that many. If anyone out there is thinking Fallout 3 (which I might consider the quintessential sandbox experience at this point) owes something to GTA, then there's certainly no helping you.

San Andreas was a mix of 3 cities.

LA, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

GTA 4 they changed way too much ****. The story line was also weak.

Hopefully they go back to what made Vice City and San Andreas classics.

Im not a huge fan of FPS games, but anytime I would see someone playing one I instantly think of Wolfenstein.

Single player Doom always felt like Wolfenstein with enhaced graphics and replaced the notzee theme with SciFi theme. The multiplyer as AO stated was very importnat as were the modular nature of the data files allowed for user created content. Some of the WAD's were pretty good, and really the first time a game allowed that kind of customizing.

But Wolf created the modern FPS mold

They are going to have some really exciting features in this game. Although a lot of the information available about the game is posted by overzealous fans who claim to have "secret sources". So, I guess I am going to have to wait. The trailer looked pretty awesome.

Its Miami, NY or LA.

Thats all they do. And I think they would have trouble getting the mood of any other city close to the way they got the others. It would be a sub-par game if they tried to make a GTA in Tokyo.

They could proabably make London work though.

GTA 3 was an important moment in gaming. Not for any one thing but for the way it put together a bunch of stuff well.

1- Recreating an actual city to the point that parts of it were "familiar" coupled with the sandbox style allowed/encouraged exploration completely separate from the storyline

2- Much, much better than average side "quests", this was helped by the fact that it was as much or more a driving game as it was a shooting game.

3- Sure the criminal vibe was pretty new and interesting that first time

4- Good incorporation of music, as better than most background music plus the humor/comedy of the talk shows (and the game in general).

The tennis in the game sucks a lot. So goofy..full drive-swings to hit slice shots, ridiculous dives, and goofy mechanics overall.

Really not something I will do again, but it was a nice side-addition to all the other more fun stuff you can do.

I'll manage. I mean, it's just a week, isn't it? Then a few days later I'll receive a paycheck from a Danish restaurant aswell:)

No, but yesterday was horrible. First when I get home from the midnight release I realize that the second hand controller I bought was absolutely broken. Went in the day after, very early, got it replaced, put the game on install, went to the dentist. Dentist wasn't happy, I wasn't happy at him either. (He's just a jerk no matter how your teeth are)

Went to Denmark to talk about my job and got the news that I'm getting a few more hours in and then full-time in November and December.

Go home, start up the PS3 which had turned off by itself (I've set the timer for 3 hours), realize that the left analog stick is absolutely scheisse, manage to get through 20 minutes-ish of gameplay, swoon over the massive world, then the PS3 shuts off. I wonder why and try to turn it on again, the recovery message shows up, then it promptly shuts off again. I try to start it, but all I see is a yellow light.

I get absolutely furious. I disassemble it, clean it out, heat up a few places (basically trying the YLOD fix without any thermal paste) and then reassemble it again. Nothing. I start to think that the least I can do is go down to the game store and replace my controller. Said and done, I get a new third party one.

Then I call my sister to ask her if she could get her a new bonus card (we have tons of points on it, everytime I've bought a game I've been registering her details), no sound from the speaker. Turns out my phone thought that the headphones were still plugged in. I try to clean the jack, but to no avail. I then try to make a factory reset, and it freezes on the spinning gears FOR MORE THAN TEN HOURS, NO RESET SEQUENCE WOULD FIX IT. Dropped it in for service this morning.


TL;DR I felt suicidal yesterday.

It's quite a bit harder to shake the cops in this game using the "traditional GTA method" which was to just drive outside the circle. Now, you should avoid using main roads. The best way is to drive into discreet alley ways or get out of the car and hide.

The protagonist Franklin is the best for shaking off cops. His special ability allows him to be an implausibly good driver.

:lol:

I'd use the explosive melee attack code instead.

And trying to shake a 5 star wanted level is... difficult. Especially when being in a jet fighter shooting missiles at everything. Been shooting down a blimp and a police chopper so far.

This was definitely one of the best games I have ever played. At first I thought it was somewhat dull, but as I played through I fell in love. For me, it was far superior to all of its predecessors.

I did. Twice.

Had a lot of fun. I played it again in order to choose different approaches to heists and because its fun to play the game when you get a little more experienced.


I love how much diversity they added to the mission structures. It was much more than just "Go there, kill people, lose the cops"

I'm glad I didn't buy this game. After playing story and online, it's surprisingly underwhelming...

Do you usually rent games?

What are your thoughts about Online? I thought it was a hot mess when it became available. Stopped playing after a few hours.

I played it at a friends house.

I couldn't play it that long because it kept freezing and my characters were deleted.. Also, the character creation is a heavily flawed concept. Every time I finish creating one, it looked bland because of the lack of variety.. In my opinion, it's not worth playing for dozens of hours to get the high-powered weapons and expensive real estate.
