GTA:SA for PC

Release date for GTA:SA for the PC appears to be June 7th (not sure if this is international or N.America)

http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/grand-theft.../606030p1.html

Anyone else looking forward to this as much as me?

No because I own it on PS2 and have already played it to death...

But you'll have fun with it...

Don't believe the hype.

Didn't enjoy SA nearly as much as I did VC

Looking back I didnt really enjoy VC as much as 3, although I probably played it as much.

Thats it, you and me, in the bitchlist, right now!

seriously tho, I think its because 3 was such a big step, VC just polished off the ideas but left a lot of the really irritating bugs/gameplay features that should have been fixed

In that case.. you'll see SA in a similar way as GTA3.

It's full of unique ideas that are just waiting to be polished of in GTA6...

But i'm not like that. I see a polished version of a game as exceeding the previous version. It just has to contain enough new interesting material to be worth my purchase.

And Vice City definately was. Same goes for SA.

It's not that I didn't enjoy SA, it took up a fair chunk of my free time, it just didn't have a lot of replay value in it once the main missions were over and done with, where as VC I could happily go back to and just cruise around the streets doing vigilante missions and stuff just for the hell of it, yes those were there in SA as well, just didn't have the willpower to go back to it.

Dunno, something about it just didn't click for me, same thing with III , it was good, but didn't hold my attention.

Who knows.

I personally won't be buying it, for PC or Xbox. They're doing away with the ability to kill cops I heard, which makes it seem rather horrible.

I have the polar opposite approach to gta games, I spend 99% of my time just dossing around and enjoying being immersed in a virtual world. Somehow its almost infinately replayable to me.

Well in Washington, I think there was a law passed that prohibited games which showed violence against police.

Two sides of the same coin. Two management teams bidding for control, the CEO job of Slavery, Incorporated! The truth is out there in front of you, but they lay out this buffet of lies. I'm sick of it, and I'm not going to take a bite out of it, do you got me?

Maybe if the world was truly immersive then I might have had a bigger opinion of it, it did try though and did have a lot of extra stuff in there to keep you occupied, but perhaps not enough.

Maybe in the next installment they will truly crack the immersive world, imagine being able to go into every building, everyone in the game was an individual rather than just a clone of someone else, that would be truly something, if they can squeeze that into a stand alone console game and not have to go online to do it, then they will probably hook more people.

My main point of all this, and it goes back to my first post in this thread, GTASA has been hyped up to the roof as being 'the best console game experience you'll ever have" etc etc, when on the face of it, it wasn't that big a leap from VC, more of a refinement. III to VC was a huge leap, VC to SA was more of a hop sideways.

That might, and probably is, a limit of technology today, here's hoping that 2006/7 and a new gen of consoles brings something truly spectacular and not just another rehashing of the same format.

I take your point, I should proabably have said that I really like driving games too so crusing around is a big part of the fun. Plus I've always modded my versions to stick in new cars and other crap.

I disagree that III to VC was a huge leap, but even if SA /is/ just more of the same in a bigger enviroment, thats enough to satisfy me.

I have the PC version of Vice City, and to be honest with ya I can only play it for about twenty minutes before getting completely and uttery bored of stealin' some shit, shootin' some shit, and fuckin' some shit.

I never have understood the whole GTA hype; you're limited to doing only the five same things over and over again, going to the same five buildings over and over again to talk to the same five guys over and over again, who want you to kill the same five guys over and over again, for the same five reasons... over and over again.

Honestly, the only thing that keeps me still playing VC is the thousands of mods available for it; I feel sorry for the PS2 people who can't experience the best part of owning the game.

Doesn't mean I won't play SA as soon as it comes out, but this time I am better prepared to get bored from the game.

This is a sig of some nature.

I can only play 3d games with a mouse and keyboard if it's a first person shooter.

Mod an XBOX controller; it's easy to do, and the controller will still be usable on an XBOX:

GTA - SA is the best version in my opinion. But, why Rockstar didn't make vehicles with brand logo like NFS?
