So, I've never played any of the Saints Row games.

Should I pick up 3 while we wait for GTAV to come out?

I'd say yes. Driving sucks, but the gameplay is hilarious and awesome.

A big hellz yes. It's a SLOW starter. If you can get past the first couple hours, it gets progressively better. Make sure you're always stocked up on grenades, rockets, and air-strikes. Busting up gangs is my favorite E36 M3.

The game is pretty small and short. Nowhere near as "big" feeling as the GTA games, and not based on any particular city. Still lots of fun though, not super expensive used, and will still be worth a few bucks when you're done with it.

San Andreas came out during my last semester of undergrad. I was going to school full-time and working 30 hours a week in a restaurant where I had worked for four years. Two weeks before teh game came out, I walked into work and told my managers I was quitting.

"Why?"

"Video Games."

After they stopped laughing they saw I was serious. The game came out and I played it like it was my job for a month and a half, beat it, got bored, then went back in and asked for my job back.

"Why?"

"Beat the game."

They didn't laugh that time, but they did give me my job back.

Yeah. I would often play for hours right up till I had to go deliver pizzas. This was usually a really bad idea.

saints row games are pretty good. I had 1, I only have 2 now. havent played 3 or 4. I agree the driving physics are a joke, but a lot of the side missions/games are hilarious. like insurance fraud.

while we are talkin free roam combat games....crackdown was pretty great. I never played 2, but recently picked up 1 again.

I bought SR3 the day it released. I had played it through TWICE a week later. It's that damn funny/good. Worth every penny.

Crackdown 2 was kind of a letdown compared to 1. 1 was a LOT harder IMO, and the acheivements felt less.... hollow. If you liked 1, you'll like 2.... it's just not quite as good.

Lol. When I finally get the CRX done, I figure "BLISTA" would be a rad tag, assuming no one else has done it.

i have been patiently waiting with my pre purchased card hanging on the fridge since november. can't wait.

That looks phenomenal. Am I alone in having watched that and found all sorts of devious things I want to do that have NOTHING to do with the game? Pretty sure I'm going to make a train and an 18 wheeler meet.

Hell yes. Hell. YES. That is my favorite part of GTA and Saints Row. Doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I'll ride around and blow stuff up. I will get a helicopter, go to the top of a building and start sniping everything that moves. Wait for the cops and blow the choppers out of the sky. Once I get bored, hop in the chopper and change locations. Repeat until daily grind BS has faded away.

Yup. I would assume that's why 90% of us love these games...though I will say, personally, it's 10X moar fun on GTA than Saints Row.

i just watched all their trailers. this game looks soo good. not that i wasnt expecting that. this might be the 1 game I preorder this year.

as for "not playing the game" on gta4 i liked getting a 4wd truck and finding rough/steep terrain to climb around on. central park and the outskirts of the islands were the best areas. also there is a certain walkway along the water that has..umm..heavy foot traffic, and its difficult for police to get to, and you can just take a truck or SUV back and forth at speed. carnage like crazy. like so much that the game lags. and the police pretty much cant get to you.

Also i liked going bowling with Roman. Or not.

Shiny happy dudes! I just got back from GameStop. Picked up a used copy of GTA IV Complete Edition. I haven't played GTA since Vice City. Well, San Andreas, but I didn't get deep into that one.
