  • I have a confession, I never finished GTA4 :(
    Its such a perplexing 'game', on one hand its utterly brilliant on the other its mind numbingly stupid.
    The world, and story ( I don't think I had much left, all island were open etc.) is really outstanding, yet they drag the experience down with stupid shit like everyone calling me all the time ? wtf is that ? so I'm driving around doing for example car theft missions, then someone calls and want to go to a bar or whatever stupid shit, either they are to far away and I can't get there in time or I have to abort my current mission, maybe even with cops after me etc. Or I accept then decline to avoid getting to much neg reputation, then someone else fucking calls ? wtf... Or if you decide to date someone, you have to micromanaging your time to avoid being on a mission when the date is supposed to happen. This happened ad nauseam.

    Nah it was way way to much stupid micromanaging stuff to even be remotely enjoyable, in the end I actually dreaded to sit down and play it. Which saddens me because there is a good game there underneath. But if a game is even more stressful than my (real-life) full-time managing job, then something ain't right.
