How so? I guess some things are cliche, but what in its story classifies as "immature satire"?
I enjoyed the entirety of my playthrough(s) of Saints Row 2, except for maybe a bit where the Sons of Samedi missions get stale. The other two gang storylines involve gang member deaths and the things you do to get revenge on the gangs is so incredibly badass I could hardly believe some of it. I mean, what's so cliche or immature about breaking into a nuclear power plant and stealing some waste to put in Maero's tattoo needle? Kidnapping his wife and putting her in the trunk of a car in his monster truck show? Maybe I haven't watched enough gang movies, but these things were all crazy awesome to me.
Also, another thing that Saints Row 2's story has that GTA IV's didn't show any sign of until maybe that guy who can hardly speak shows up (Jakob?), is HUMOR. One of my favorite cut-scenes ever is the one before the first Ronin mission, where Pierce has his crazy plan all ready to show Gat and you, and then you just decide to go in there and shoot the place up. Makes me laugh every time.
But as you said, personal opinion. I'd just appreciate it if you'd stop trying to make everyone who prefers SR2's story feel like they're wrong.
