PostSubject: Is GTA 4 any good?   Mon Apr 25, 2011 7:53 pm

I have it, only played it for like a half hour upon getting it and didn't really care for it, but didn't give it much of a chance. Just went through and beat VIce City for the umpteenth time this weekend, and am currently playing through Scarface The World is Yours, so I think I might start GTA 4. I know nothing about this game though. Is it really long? Does it take itself way too seriously like GTA: SA (from my initial impression, it did)? Are there annoying turf wars that become almost next to impossible to win? Is the map so obscenely large that driving somehwere just becomes really annoying?

It's good if you like doing the exact same mission 90 times in a row.

I like it so far. The dating game thing is annoying, but it's fun to run into walls full blast on a motorcycle and kill your date.

I really liked GTA4, the game is just a blast to play. To be honest you can't really go wrong with Rockstar, unless it's Midnight Club or any of their earlier games or any subsidiary title.

VC and 3 are better (but that goes without saying, they'll never top VC if they keep thinking realistic is the way to go) but overall I like the game. The cops are too fucking annoying, but I guess they had to make it challenging somehow (Though I don't like doing a 10 minute mission and having it take an hour because I'm running from the cops for 50 minutes)

That's why I always used cheats while playing GTA games.

They topped VC with GTA2 and San Andreas.

No they didn't. San Andreas was garbage.

I think I have this nostalgic thing going on with GTA3, so I'm impartial with my love towards it. VC was amazing for its time, but it's flair has sort of faded. And San Andreas wasn't bad, but definitely wasn't as huge a leap in quality as GTA3 -> VC was. The story kinda sucked, imo.

GTA 3 was good, VC expanded positively on it in every single aspect. San Andreas has a shitty story and too many stupid shitty side things, like having to eat and that. And it was too fucking big.

That's why I loved it. It was huge, and actually felt as if you were driving from LA to San Francisco to Las Vegas. Also it brought back the gang aspect of GTA 2 which was the best game in the series. You talk about shitty side things, GTA IV is full of that, and not as good as SA's side things. Tongue

yeah but you can choose to ignore shitty things in GTA 4. I don't have to go on dates, or make friends, or eat or work out or any of htat. ANd GTA 4 is considerably smaller. The story line is better too. THe gamplay, now, is getting a bit repetitive, but at least the missions are still fun and not completely stupid like that one in SA where you have to fly the toy plane for david cross. And there aren't any shitty turf wars.

You must have a poor memory because the game doesn't force you to do any of that. There are a couple of missions that show you that you have the ability to eat or work out or go on dates but the game does not require you to do so. GTAIV does this too. The first time you are forced to go out on some lame bowling date.

For the record I did enjoy the character customization aspect. I've got a ripped tatted CJ running around Los Santos and some people can have a fat one if they want. The RPG aspect was a nice addition I thought. But you don't like RPGs or anything like that so I can see why you didn't enjoy much of the game.

SA was the best because everything was orange.

YOu had to eat because if you didn't you started to lose health. ANd if you didn't work out, you couldn't run as fast or for as long or something stupid.

Quote :
There are two ways to lose weight: "dieting" or engaging in aerobic exercise. To "diet", CJ must refrain from eating for 48 game hours, at which time he will begin to lose fat at a rate of 2.5% per hour. After an additional 26 hours, he will lose Muscle at a rate of 2.5% per hour. After his Fat statistic has been completely depleted, he will lose all health!

Quote :
At the gym, CJ can drop excess fat, increase muscle by improving his overall stamina and physique. A good physique will increase CJ's sex appeal and respect.

Increase stamina -> ability to run longer. I didn't even know about about the resoect thing, which is kind of crucial to gameplay if I remember.

I've played the game for over 200 hours I think I know what I'm talking about.

Dude... if that's how the game mechanics work, and you always follow them, then that's the way it goes. Have you ever not worked out or eaten to see if your health depletes?

I've been warned about it maybe twice but I rarely go eat.

Of course I've worked out my muscle is maxed out, mainly because I like the way it looks.

As for stamina increases and whatnot you can just do that by walking around in the game, you don't need to work out to do that.

Kind of like in GTA 3 or VC how the more you ran the more stamina you got and the longer you could run. It's the same thing in this game though you can optionally go and increase it at a gym.
