Not a bad set of wins, COD4 got quite a few, five infact, GTA4 got two and Rockstar got one, so I guess it aint all bad. ALSO, Soundtrack of the Year??? I thought most of you fucking guys hate the music in GTA4????

Yeah I was surprised by that one, too, given the reactions on this site :P

That's because it's dominated by 15 year old wiggers who like 50 Cent.

The sountrack was great, imo.

The soundtrack felt like background music, part of the atmosphere. That was its problem.

The problem was severe. Look at the awards GTAVC and SA won with their soundtracks in comparison.

GTA4's soundtrack is large. Very large. But in return, the songs aren't that great. That's just equivalent exchange.

Well the VCS Soundtrack kicks the shit out of III, SA and IV and sure challenges the original VC but that only won like one award to! As for IV, there's at least 4 full stations where I like nearly all of the songs so I'm happy with that. Still, hmm, this does seem odd as all I've seen is people complain about how shot GTA4 is and how much it fails and sucks shit. I know, Rockstar bribed these people, cause no one likes GTA4!

Gary Busey, you're supposed to be a supporter of Saint's Row II now. You've been bought out, remember? >:[

They deserved it. I loved GTA 4. It was easily one of the best game I have ever played.
