Grand Theft Auto 4 (GTA 4)
So I'll start off by saying that in my opinion, GTA IV is the gaming event of the year 2008. I've been waiting years for this and if I could only have one game it would be this one. I'd give up Halo 3 in a heartbeat for this game.
San Andreas wasn't as good as it could have been. The story wasn't believable, even by GTA standards. I mean, come on, some punk from the hood killing mobsters?, DEA and FBI?, the U.S. Military? Total BS if you ask me. And I also think that Rockstar tried too hard with all the clothing and eating and other extra crap that didn't make the game any better. I preferred GTA 3, Vice City, and Liberty City Stories; the mafia scene was more believable. So what does everyone else think?

Also, I don't think giving up Halo 3 for GTA IV would be wise. We're talking about different gaming approaches here. Halo 3 is a FPS while GTA IV is a RPG game, so I would rather keep Halo 3 & add GTA IV to my collection.
I wouldn't actually give up Halo 3 for GTA IV since I could just have both but if I could only have one it'd be GTA IV. But I'm definitely selling my copy of Pro Street to help pay for GTA IV.
I didn't really like the graphics in San Andreas either. I think GTA III has the best overall graphics of any of the previous games. The graphics in GTA IV are just amazing but that's just because the 360 can handle them. I'm definitely getting an Intercooler because with such good graphics I'm pretty sure my 360 will heat up a LOT.
I also hope that GTA IV has more of an organized crime vibe to it. That's what made GTA III, Vice City, and Liberty City Stories so good.
Agreed. Judging by the recent 4th trailer, the physics are once again going to become the new benchmark for 1st/3rd person action games. I mean, check how the guy being shotgun'ed in the chest rolls and falls down the stairs after getting hit, its just so natural, whereas in the original Saints Row (can't comment on SR2 as I haven't seen ANYTHING relating to it), they'd just hop back and drop, sliding ridiculously down the stairs or stopping half-way.
I'm just looking forward to a more gritty and overall realistic feel compared to say GTAIV/SA/Saints Row, all of which, to me at least, have always seemed rather cartoon-like. There are only 26 days left now, so I simply can't wait until my Special Edition version turns up for my 360. If my 360 can handle 48-hours straight of XP-whoring in R6V2, then I'm sure it can handle GTAIV.
i hope they make it an online because i'm getting xbox live shortly
basically i'm gonna do sensless killing , flying helicopters... basically checking out the landscapes and knowing whats diffrent from the old to the new
flying as high as you could in the last one and jumping out the helicopter of pharacuting down! thats gotta be a brillant thriller!
