Grand theft auto 4?

#1EmeraldroxPosted 4/3/2013 7:28:43 AM
Since all the GTA4 boards seem dead, what did people think of this, and is buying all 3 games worth it (4, lost and the damned, ballad of gay tony) if I had LatD and BoGT on PC (my PC seriously can't handle them though, nor could my dads. The new laptop probably could but its for the family business)
Also, do you think the price will go down anymore for either Xbox or PS3? We have both so I'm just looking for the cheapest route because I myself don't really play these games all the way through anymore, though, my dad does.
How do these compare to San Andreas and Vice City? Those are my favorite GTA games to date and I still go back and replay them from time to time.

GTA4 is my favorite GTA. Whilst it doesn't have nearly as many bits & bobs as San Andreas, it excels at rendering a city that really feels alive. The story is pretty great too.

Some of the gameplay mechanics, specifically the shooting will probably feel pretty clunky & dated by now compared to newer games, but you'd get used to them & they shouldn't really stop you from enjoy the game.

It's definitely worth getting all three. Like B0v, it's my favorite GTA, and this is coming from someone who enjoyed and played the **** out of SA in it's day.

You should consider getting this for PS3, simply for the free online play. Plus, the community of regulars is pretty awesome.

As much as the vehicle physics annoy the **** out of me the GTAIV collection is still worth it.. TBoGT is better than LatD and the main game's story IMO. Worth it, yes price drop will probably come a couple months before GTAV's release but $30 isn't bad for the amount of content provided.

You have two dads and neither of them could handle it?

You would be doing yourself a great injustice by not picking these games up.

^ either a problem with the disk or your ps3.

I picked up the 3 game bundle for a very nice $15 (brand new). I play BOGT online now and then :) I may or may not have made some enemies though (they all deserved it, i dont kill in free roam unless im provoked)
