WC writes: There are many factors that go into making a truly great video game, but undeniably it’s the characters within the story who draw us into the story the most, providing us with the motivation to continue playing, and bestowing the game with a very distinct personality.

I hate WhatCultures layout pages...just put them on one page or spilt them on to two.

I just hate how Rockstar won't do it anymore, they keep saying it's because we'll keep seeing the celeb rather then the character they're playing but I don't and I bet a lot of you guys feel the same.

Seriously Rockstar have got to stop thinking for us and deciding on what we like and don't like. To be honest I just think it's because it costs too much money for them and they are becoming cheap.
