    I was reading about that earlier. That kinda sucks.

    And I was so hoping to get my GTA4 safety deposit box this year :(

    I’m ok with this because going into the end of the year I have Guitar Hero 3, Rock Band, Halo 3, and Mass Effect on my play list. Bumping GTA 4 to a time of year there are less games I car about coming out is fine with me.

    I could have saw this coming- it had such limited amount of media and coverage (ok, the media covered it, but the truth was Rockstar has had little to show as of yet). No biggie, I don't have enough time to play game I already have let alone the new ones I will pick up this year.

    GTA games are the most mind numbingly boring, pointless, POS video games ever made. I will never understand the fascination. Well, maybe if I start smoking weed and rotting my brain with hip-hop "culture" I could kill enough brain cells to enjoy them.

    Hey, I don't do drugs, drink, like hip hop or most of modern youth culture, and I like the GTA games. Have followed them since GTA 1 back on my old DX2/66... except for GTA3 (skipped straight to VC). They're quite fun, and more enjoyable to barrel around doing stuff, like an RPG in a modern setting.

    Not that different compared to Oblivion or Morrowind, except instead of horses they have cars, and instead of daedra, they have ganstas and coke addicts.

    I have seen very few franchises with such contrasting opinions. Personally, I like exploring the open world, driving around looking for crazy ramps while listening to good music, and the storylines can be entertaining. On the other hand, I was really dissapointed by San Andraes, which just seemed to have too much to keep track of with missions that were a pain in the ass to redo if you lose near the end. Oh, and I really didn't like the soundtrack of GTA: SA, and that really takes a lot of the fun out, ESPECIALLY since the shut the radio off when you launch off a slo-mo ramp. That really bothere me and made finding those ramps much less entertaining.

    Oh, I also want to add what I think is one of it's biggest attractions... atmosphere. There is something about how GTA's feel, just from the people walking around, the sounds of cars passing bye, the weather effects... somehow they pull it off like no other sandbox title I have seen.

    On one hand, awwww. :( 

    On the other, this means they'll deliver the product when it's good and polished, not rushed. And I have a little more time to get me a PS3. :D

    Glad to see you only played one to make that insightful, well informed opinion.

    I'll never understand the GTA's. Oh well, Halo3 should keep me and my friends occupied.

    See I never understood the fascination with Halo. Maybe its cause I'm used to good FPS on the PC. But GTA has always been a fun game, playing the missions or just straight up running around killing people. I do think the worst was SA.

    No biggie, I'm not exactly anxious to get my hands on GTA4. I'm a little more interested in Halo 3 and Mass Effect.

    Yeah, and like I said on the other thread. This GTA has upped the detail level 10fold, and every building, plant, street, person has to look unique, and not just the model, but the texturing on them, so I agree. Let them take their time and come up with something worth San Adreas' name, which was a damn fun, and funny game. Explroing that game was such a blast.

    You know, the thing with SA, I think they lost a lot of fan ground, because it seemed like it was almost catering to the stereotyped crowd that people THINK play GTA, when really it's just gamers playing it because the series can be really enjoyable.
