A friend is selling me GTA IV on disc version...

I'm thinking of buying it, so i can play the mods, but i heard that it runs on GFWL, and since they supposedly closed it, i don't want to be ripped off.

PC games don't work without CD keys. If he already played the game then you can't even use the disc since he already used it.

Wait for the game to go back on sale for $7.50 again.

GFWL dies in June or July, I forget which, but calcycle is right, if your friend has claimed the key already (which he no doubt has or he couldn't play the game himself), the disc is nothing but a coaster.

According to him, he didn't use the key, because he couldn't run it.

And btw, he said he didn't install it.

he never installed it, but he couldn't run it? how did h know he couldn't run it if he never installed? and dont say he read the specs and knew he couldn't so he didnt bother, because if that was the case he would have read them before he bought it and realized he didnt need to waste the money.


your friend sounds stupid as ****

GTA 4 works on multiple compouters using the sme key. I played it ad also let my friend borrow it and she was able to play it. It just requires the disc to play, kind of like a console game

Decided to pass on it.
