I agree with that, though I loved gang wars really much.

Boo boo, I agree with everything you said. If they succeed at bringing San Andreas to life like that, I salute them.

Could IV get orange? It's gotten a ridiculous amount of acclaim and is the highest rated game ever on metacritic (98/100 for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions)

III, VC, SA and IV should all be orange.
VC stories could be regular bolded but aside from that, it's good.

Ever heard about a thing called hyperbole?

Unlike movie critics I really don't think the opinions of video game critics matter, yes a lot of people purchase games based on metacritic ratings but they purchase them based on numbers, not on valid opinions.

Professional video game critics are all pretty terrible at what they do and more often than not their website or publication has a lot of advertising space bought out by the same video game companies whose games they review, this is why every triple A title always gets high ratings no matter what, while superior or similar games with much less fanfare get lower ratings for the exact same criticisms. It's also why ratings often seem at odds with the review, and ratings are the only thing consumers pay attention to.

I hate video game critics.

Hyperbole? What's that? Never heard of it.
:roll: if you're trying to say that I'm lying because I love GTA IV then you're wrong because 1.) I've never played it and 2.) it actually DOES have 98/100 for both versions. Don't believe me? You're more than welcome to check for yourself. Here's the link.

Same here, it seemed like a gamer's dream come true. I've always been discussing the reincarnation of San Andreas with my friends, I never expected it to actually happen!

I hope this one is to GTA IV what San Andreas was to GTA III.

I've been loving the screenshots Rockstar have been releasing lately.

The Game Informer reveal for GTAV. So far it sounds like everything that bothered me about IV has been sorted with this game, plus it seems they've added a lot of the fun stuff a la San Andreas.

I am pretty damn pumped about this game. I really hope that there's a span in my life next year where I'll be able to sit down on the couch, get real stoned, and play GTA guilt-free all day like in the good old days.

Also hoping the PC release isn't crappy at launch like GTAIV.

Haven't the PC ports always been a little lacking?
