Is there anyone here who is not at all interested in GTA IV what-so-ever? Talk about how you can't understand why people are mad for this game. This thread is for you...all three of you.

what's an i-phone?


a tool that guys use to replace a girlfriend that they can't get... the said tool is supposed to make them superior to thier peers but they all have one so the next step is to be "first" to play GTA4 and then the "first" to complete it.. and so on

Anti-GTA IV?

I [COLOR="Red"]hate[/COLOR] GTA IV so much!!!!!!!!!!
















because it is out of stock in my local asda store.....
#22
As I said to my gf yesterday "GTA is my Harry Potter."

I 'grew out' of non-stop gaming years ago and now only pay hommage to my past via my DS. But this is GTA - this isn't just a game! (And on that note I expect to be quoted by all the 'mothers against R*' when sh!t hits the fan any time soon)

Bet it is not better than centipide on the ATARI 2600!!

I don't think anyone who is making an effort to get the game tomorrow is doing so because they want to play it before other people. I think it's more that they are excited about the game, and have been looking forward to its launch, and want to play the game as soon as it's out. Some people have a passion for videogames, you obviously don't.

I do have a passion for games and I have all the GTAs on the playstation so far. but i dont see the urgency in waiting at midnight to get one.

The main thing that shocks me is lack of patience.. and yes lots of people want to play and clock it first, trust me there are loads of geeks at my uni...

Perhaps somewhere in the middle? There is certainly something to be said about autonomy here. Despite thecomments about having personal motivations - which I'm sure are true - you also have to see the influence of marketing etc in your desire to play...

In that case, I'm quite surprised the combination of spectacular looking in game footage and brilliant reviews haven't got you excited about this game. I wasn't massively excited about this game until a few weeks ago. The 10/10 from IGN was the icing on the cake for me, and I'm going to go and get it at midnight, even though I won't be able to play it until after work tomorrow.

For me, it's not impatience, but rather avoiding a potentially frustrating delay. If I knew I could get it, say, on Wednesday morning, then I'd happily wait. And I'm sure that the stock shortages are likely to be exaggerated, but I'd rather not take the chance.

I'll be much happier once I've bought it tonight :)

Edit: Liddle ol' me - I've just completely verified your point :-D

Well said...
It's a great game. You probably havn't played any of the recent ones to experience the fun.

I don't think too many people care about 'getting it before anyone else'. If that was the case they'd be playing it already.

It's like people waiting in line for Harry Potter. It's something a massive number of people love, and what's wrong with that? Embrace it, and if it doesn't appeal to you then just look the other way. :)

i'm not exactly going to be blocking people from getting into the store. I dont care to be honest

but i do think you under-estimate the peer pressure or the sense of grandure behind getting the game on release day. i am not assuming this.. i know through experience of knowing such people.


PS. i play video games too.. I spent 2k on my PC to do so... but i am entitled to my opinion on this

Its like the "cabbage patch kids" all over again !!!!

GTA - its a Game Thats All

I played one of the games on the old xbox........ i was bored within 15min, just didnt get it. Yeah it was a laugh pulling people out of cars for a bit...........then just plain dull. Lots of people are into it tho so it must be a personal taste thing, im obsessed with fight night round 3 on the 360 and people hate that.
