Let me repeat myself since people like you seem to be pretty butthurt whenever anyone attacks your dear San Andreas. I posted the link to the video and said that it's basically a reminder of how bad the game looks visually. I then went on to say that it baffles me why people defend that game like they've got money riding on it. It looks bad, but it also plays pretty badly.
Here son, let me help you.
As if we needed a reminder of how extremely crap San Andreas looks after all these years. I can't believe there's still people on this board defending SA as a better game than IV. My eyes are about to bleed.
^What you originally said. Now NOWHERE do you state anything about SA playing bad. What you do state and heavily imply is that people who like SA above GTA IV do so based on graphics.
Once you got called out on your ignorant post you THEN make a short list of why GTA IV is better, which all but two things in your short list are subjective. Also trying to argue the tech aspect of both games is pretty desperate and shows your insecurity's.
The game was great for its time, but today it doesn't compare, especially to GTA IV. I'm sure you guys will interpret this in some demented way and attack me and call me a troll and blah blah blah, I don't care. It's expected. I don't really give a damn what you think of me so have at it. Point is, SA is not superior to GTA IV. Learn to let go of the past.
No one is claiming that SA is superior "TECH WISE", they are claiming it is superior "FUN WISE", and they are right. Learn to quit getting excited when the glass is half empty.
Console bug testing has been outsourced to gamers now. For $60 you too can become a game tester.
SA might be 'ugly', but it had a huge world and I had a lot of fun with it. The problem with GTA IV was that I liked watching the cutscenes more than playing the game. Smaller map, missing weapons, missing crazy cheats from past GTA games whenever I want to goof around, didn't like the radio stations, and my main gripe, the coppers spawned out of control. Seriously, just punching someone can lead to a 5 star wanted level. ~_~
IV ended up annoying me so much that I never bothered buying the other episodes. I just watched playthroughs on youtube instead.
