SandboxGuy can only hope to improve
regarding my disapointment with this game.

I posted earlier today but i want to add that doensnt anybone here feel something missing from this game compared to the other gta's? I still can't believe this game got so highly rated for the wrong reasons. Overrated is an understatement. The Fun factor is just not there. There is only about 5 memorable fun missions. The rest are pretty generic. Especially the unneccesarry countless mafia factions. I cant even rob stores anymore. Whats the point of having the in game brand stores from the past if you cant go in them. Niko belic even has a beer belly if you notice. Too much industrial neighborhoods. waste of space. The safehouses with the exception of playboy x's all suck. If i have the money why cant i choose to live in a mansion in the suburbs. Rockstar has always given us crappy safehouses. Man i can't wait for saints row 2. Jet ski's, airplanes, flamethrowers, an army, the ability to recruit people. Customizable cribs and gangs. I want my money back rockstar. you let me down.

The missions could've been more thought out and more fun, and a couple of more weapons could've been added. I also would've loved jetski's, but other than that the game is really really good.

SandboxGuy, Niko is an illegal immigrant, what do you expect from him? Fame, fortune and a massive house?

Thats not the theme Rockstar wanted to give to the game. They wanted him to just be an immigrant that came to live with his cousin after being lied to about the "American Dream" and to find "a special someone".

It brings realism to the game if you dont end out as a multi millionaire with a huge gang and a big house, unlike previous GTAs.

Dont forget that the overall theme of this game is "rags, to slightly better rags"

FFS, shut up. Really, shut up. It's old. You overhyped the game in your shit box little mind and now your butt hurt. Go play and like it or go back to your dark corner and turn on some emo and remember how mommy and daddy don't love you anymore.

Yeah sounds to me like the OP just wanted GTA III/SA v1.5.

GTA IV is more focused on a down to earth, realistic feel. The thing that gets GTA IV such high ratings (which I agree with) is the level of detail in the world. You can prank call emergency services, see cops pulling people over (or chasing them on foot), greatly detailed cars. I, for one, LOVE the new physics, especially with the cars. The story line is also leaps and bounds over the previous GTAs. Not only is the storyline itself better (and the main character more down to earth), but you can make choices. And I'm glad you dont end up in some huge penthouse with loads of bling. That's really not my thing.

All in all, GTA IV is one of those games where in order to truly enjoy its genious, you gotta just stop for a minute and soak in the details. I felt a little let down after I first started it up, but that was before I started noticing the little things. Those little things add up to one amazing gaming experience.

You like to bitch a lot! Rockstar wants this game to big realistic and different then all the other games.
Like all the other copy cats you become from poor to being a millionaire.

Jet-ski's???

I don't mean to be rude, but that request alone pretty much invalidates all of your other points. Sure, a lot of the missions involve tracking down x, killing x, and then escaping y. But what did you expect? This is a game about a muderous, revenge seeking criminal, not some guy taking on minimum wage jobs (like in the previous games). You'd probably complain that rain isn't wet enough

How the hell is an immigrant supposed to buy a mansion? Specially one that has no Greencard/Visa..

Maybe if he got a Greencard like Tony Montana then maybe you could buy a mansion.. But guess what Niko doesnt get one...

Dont forget to add: annoying White 12 yr olds trying to act like black gangsters, to your saints row 2 list... Shit was soo ridiculous in SR.

"Ohhhhh! Saints Row 2 gonna have Jet Skis! You can't even rob stores in GTA....I mean wtf? And like Niko like has a beer belly....omfg! And like in SR2, you can, like, uhhh, have, like.....mansions...and it's customizable."
Dude, who gives a fuck if you can't rob stores...and make gay ass customizable houses? Huh? Do you fucking expect Rockstar to make the most best, most fucking perfect game out there? Full of fucking explosions, and lots of fucking money? I mean yeah, I liked SR, and I'm going to get SR2. But why make two fucking topics, telling why GTA sucks because it's not like your "awesome Saints Row...where you can have fucking super awesome fucking flamethrowers! And you can like have the super fucking awesome ability to recruit people! "( Btw, the fucking gangsters are so fucking useless in SR, they fucking die every 10 seconds, and can't aim worth shit) Dude, if you can't see the fun factor in GTA IV, and why the game is good, then you must be on fucking crack. Also may I add, the story line in SR, makes no god damn sense. (Sorry I said the "F" word ten times in this post, but damn.)

Most of your complaints are superficial. Niko is fat? I want jet skis? Who the fuck are you Jon Edwards? I rather have finally tuned game play rather then shitty jet ski.
