Grand Theft Auto IV

Wiis, PlayStations, iPads, blogging platforms, Facebook and anything else worthy of buzz in the digital world.

I haven't played GTA IV yet.

the last three stale PS2 games were enough to make me sit this out.

Newcomers still say fighting and shooting sucks.

so unless you're way into running people over in a consequence free environment, its not that good of a game.

is the driving at least good? Is the story good? the buzz I read is just "oh! GTA" over and over.
maybe I just need to buck up and rent it.

Here's an interesting comparison piece;
Then and Now: Grand Theft Auto IV.
One of my few disappointments, which they mention, is the lack of graphical upgrade to the trees/shrubbery.

I've been a big fan of the GTA series.
I just started playing GTAIV last night and I'm diggin' it. Niko's cousin cracks me up.

I've been playing GTAIV every day for the past week. I bought it when it first came out but got sidetracked with other games until now.
Rockstar has really taken the graphic realism, game mechanics, and biting satire to a whole new level. Color me impressed.

Just finished the story portion of the game a few days ago. Amazing game, I don't even wanna think about all the man-hours that were put into this game from all those listed among the game's credits (which go on for over 10 minutes).

Right now I'm working at cleaning Liberty City of those damned flying rats (pigeons). I'm hearing those things in my sleep (as I'm sure many real life New Yorkers do).

I only wish there were a xxx virutal sex scenario with cover art girl Lola Del Rio (who does not exist in the game).
I think Rockstar eluded to her being in the game as some sort of 'hot coffee' type easter egg just to fuck with all the horny teens who shouldn't be playing the game in the first place.

I'll probably get the standalone Episodes from Liberty City disc with The Lost and The Damned and The Ballad Of Gay Tony when it's released.

[insert many expletives here]! I am now part of the 199 club (there are 200 pigeons). ACK!

Why aren't there any male hookers? /s

No, actually, I know the answer to that.

Fuck misogyny in video games. Won't be playing these, ever.
