this is why i do not buy madden, COD, or halo.
not to derail the topic, as i'm sure i already have, but echochrome is worth a look, if only for innovative purposes
<shrug> GTA SA was AWESOME. GTAIV is still bound to be a phenomenal game. I just don't know that it lived up to the insane amount of hype it got.
In the grand scheme of things, beyond the fantastic graphics, they didn't seem to upgrade the gameplay much.
Certainly not near as much as GTA SA was an upgrade over VC, and VC was an upgrade over GTAIII.
Are the "Stories" games worth buying? I seriously can't go back and play VC or GTAIII anymore. It's the controls. They're awful after you've played SA for a while.
