[IGN] GTA IV Review! - Page 9

post #81 of 122
Half the games you listed cant be compared to GTA by virtue of being a compltely different genre of game. It seems to me you don't like GTA4 because you don't own a console to play it on.

But the other half can.
And yes I own a 360 but we already know you don't like that for some reason so we don't need your comment on my owning a 360.

I simply listed a higher quality of game. One that doesn't fall back on the 12-17 year olds who think its cool to hear n!@3r, sp$ck, jew, whitey, cracker, pig, h0, wh0re, in no particular order, every other sentence. This game particularly falls back on the guilty pleasure of said adolescents and thats why they buy it. True, some of you may get into the watered down story but 90 percent of the people that buy this probably doesn't even realize there is a plot, rather they just run around and rack up 5 stars and go nuts. This is why the game doesn't deserve the score. I do apologize if you don't agree with me but anyone can make a game where killing everyone and racking up racial slurs were the main points in the game. Rockstar just happened to do it first and now we have the halo3 syndrome. Any game "this big" better get a good score or humanity as we know it would cease to exist. Halo 3 got these type of scores and it was terrible. I am not comparing the games themselves, I am comparing the scores they received and how ironic it is lately that for a couple years, over hyped games that get perfect scores never live up to that score.

How do you know this isn't a high quality game? Have you played it?

Its Rockstar elmike. Every game since GTAIII has been the same "beat down" a crack3r/j3w/n$%%r with a couple mini games thrown in. NONE have been any different. Even Bully holds true to that. But I guess thats why they still sell this stuff, people think its a "high" quality game

Once again, the series does have some fun points that are fun to exploit every once a great while, but this thread is about the score/review and that is what I am here debating.

I don't know why you have it firmly implanted in your head that this is the second coming of the Christ.

I am simply holding my reservations until Rockstar can prove that they made a game and not a killing spree with a prostitute thrown in for good measure

I said initially it'll be game of the year based on the reviews its getting. I'll reserve judgment for when I actually play the game, something you don't seem to get. And that's the only point I've been trying to get across for this entire thread.

It was expected really that GTA 4 would get 10/10 scores. Come on, who would dare NOT to give a very good score to this game considering it's status? No, nobody wants to upset people, to shatter high hopes and such.

These reviews aren't meant to portray things for that they truly are but meant to confirm expectations. And when reviews do point out flaws they do it as to repel any accusations of bias that may come from less "expectant people".

Please explain to me how all of the games you listed are any better of a game than the GTA series. Just about all of the games stick to their respected genres concepts and aren't incredibly different than each other. Just some more eye candy for every new one.

Black and White is one of the most overrated games (along with just about every other Peter Molyneux game.)
