First guy to complete GTA IV

Gamesradar wrote: "With GTA IV due out on April 29 a few of our esteemed magazine friends in the GamesRadar network have been granted access to review the game already. That's right - one of the perks of being permanently slagged off on forums and two-bit blogs is that games writers get the opportunity to play games before they're in the shops.

The first of our colleagues to actaully finish the game is Rob Taylor, deputy editor of Xbox World 360 magazine, and below he tells us (as best he can) what it feels like to be the first person to finish GTA in the world. Lucky bastard.

If you had to pick a favourite out of all the games in the series now which one would it be?

GTA IV. By a country mile. It craps on all the others – even the mighty Vice City – from a height equivalent to the Statue of Happiness. Believe me, GTA IV is even better than the hype suggests!"

He is hyping it up way too much, like saying the main character is the best character he's ever played. He basically praises every single thing about GTA4, not even any criticism. He just seems to be hyping the game up more and therefore promoting the game for the 360 even more.

I will probably get this game, but I can pretty much tell that it won't be as good as he says it is, don't get me wrong it will be very good, but his fanboyness for the GTA series is making the game seem better than it actually is to him.

"but his fanboyness for the GTA series is making the game seem better than it actually is to him."

How can something make it better to him than it actually is? If he loves every single aspect of the game and does not see anything wrong with it than that is how he feels.

He is not a critic apparently. He does not need to find nit picky things wrong with the game. That will just make you hate games more than you should. You should take a lesson in his love of the game and stop worrying about little things.

"He does not need to find nit picky things wrong with the game. That will just make you hate games more than you should. You should take a lesson in his love of the game and stop worrying about little things."

That quote, is perhaps the most meaningful quote in the entire universe of video games. I agree 1000000000x. It's the fact that people today who happens to like a certain video game, enjoys that video game, loves that video game, will be bashed by others because of it, instead of just respecting that love for the video game.

There's just far too much hate, nit picking, and comparisons going around it's ridiculous. Games are meant to be fun for everyone. That's why there's different genres for different gamers. I seriously dislike the fact a Action/shooter fan will bash on a RPG fan or vice versa. People need to take they're heads out of they're rears and realize, the world is different. If someone praises a video game from his own experience, let him love it.

@Panthers - I know what you mean, but every game has a flaw, but this guy is making out that GTA4 is absolutely perfect. If he is meant to be a professional game reviewer, he should give some sort of criticism no matter how good the game is.

It's like those reviewers with Halo 3 that said it was perfect, when I got the game it was good but not perfect...

if thats true than this game will be amazing

sonarus2973d ago

not really. I don't know about you guys but i expect sequels to exceed their previous titles especially with a next gen upgrade. GTA4 will be a great game and i have no doubt will be the best GTA game yet however i am not the biggest GTA fan out there, i am honestly more interested in mischief with the cops than the actual game itself. I still haven't finished any GTA4 game yet. My gaming attention span is quite short but i am absolutely determined to finish this one

You missed out BIG time if you have never acually completed the storylines of any of the last-gen PS2-era GTA games . GTA III, Vice City and Sand Andreas had the most immersive, intriguing, cinematic and exciting storylines ever seen in video gaming history. I completed the storylines of all three and the experience was just fun, enjoyable and incredible. I think Vice City had the best storyline out of the three. It was a big waste of the game if you spent all your time on GTA just messing around and getting chased by cops. It's the storylines that really made GTA's gameplay a most enjoyable, immersive experience. I just hope you dont make the same mistake with GTA 4!

JVIDICAN2973d ago

amazingly a couple years ago i didnt even know the gta's had a story id just hijack a car,run over some people, get blown up and repeat for hours lol

Elvfam5112973d ago

I hope Gta4 be what everybody is hyping it up to be man i love GTA3 vice city and san andreas man those games i can't stop playing and i hope GTA4 doesnt disappoint like every other game that had to much of a hype Hopefully it meets my expectations like the others did

mistertwoturbo2973d ago

"immersive, intriguing, cinematic and exciting storylines ever seen in video gaming history."

I bet to differ, the metal gear series had that for me. But of course i'm not knocking on GTA, i'm getting GTAIV for sure. But i'd have to give the cinematic title to metal gear.

Now all I have to do put myself in stasis until 4/29.

BeaArthur2973d ago

Milky2973d ago

sorry OFFICIAL GENERAL:

I would not agree that previous GTAs had the most immersive storylines out there. Not at all.

SeanScythe2973d ago
