I Choose Saints Row IV over GTA V

CCC Says: "Y So Serious, GTA V?
I appreciate the Grand Theft Auto V series for what it is, and totally get the love and devotion people have for the games. It's good stuff. The thing is, everything's also so darkly serious. It's just so dramatic. Sometimes, you've just got to lighten up. You need to kick back, relax, and enjoy the mayhem. Which is why, when my favorite indie retail store had used copies of GTA V and Saints Row IV this weekend for the same price, I went with the Saints." (Culture, Grand Theft Auto V, Saints Row 4)

"As much fun as roaming around Los Santos might be, exploring virtual Steelport is better"

Because nothing beats roaming around the same exact city you did in SR3, as opposed to GTA 5's completely rebuilt Los Santos.

Please guide me to where I mentioned graphics?

Heck, I didn't make them make the map look amazing, but at least it's fresh, huge and still manages to look fantastic, I take pleasure out of exploring new things, not reused assets.

Please take your "you dumb people" somewhere else. I also think it's hilarious how you've decided to personally attack the way I look, really shows how mature you are about this whole subject.

What they did with GTA V's world is incredible. The amount of detail is astounding.
That said, what they did with Saints Row IV and it's gameplay mechanics, it did not feel like the same city to me. Even if it was.
They gave us a whole new way to explore the city and I found it to be a vastly different experience.
Just saying.

If you think GTA V is serious, you probably did not play it...

Your sentence says all,when you say :"GTA 5's completely rebuilt Los Santos"its more than obvious that you are targeting the graphic side of the game!Its an obvious assumption since you dont talk about anything other than rebuild visuals.This all taking in context the rest of your sentence.Not to mention that your response to the article is off the context in every way.

The more you talk, the more moronic you sound. Please stop, as you've nothing intelligent to add to the conversation.

Sincerely, Everyone

SR4 is much better than GTA V

As much as I respect opinions this seems honestly bias to me.

GTA V actually has roamed away from the seriousness that IV had in it, it's made itself graphically enjoyable as well as having a pretty damn funny dialogue and gameplay mechanics that IV was missing, I do enjoy Saints Row but without online multiplayer the experience gets a bit bland afted a while, even with two player co-op it's just not as fun and missing a true sense of enjoyment once you've done everything. Thats it's main downfall imo.

I see GTA V as more of a slapstick comedy / serious tone of game, not sure you see that but hey, each to their own.

I don't know why they are even comparing them anyway.
Very different experiences from one another.

Its a kind of toaster, it only toasts one side of the bread.

The concept that GTA is somehow mature or serious is beyond me.
SlapHappyJesus  +   522d ago
Definitely not mature. Though it does try to present itself in a serious manner. Balanced out by its overall satire, anyway.

You DO know GTAV isn't the one set in a fake New York starring Niko Bellic don't you?
As lazy, soulless and shallow as I've found every Saints row game I've played I could almost see the point of somebody preferring them to GTA4. Preferring them to GTAV is insane. GTAV has variety and humour up the wazoo, it's just that some of the humour is sharply focused satire that either draws from real life issues or arises from the interplay between fully realised characters... and not just somebody going, omg look a dildo lulz.

Steelport has to be the worst sandbox city I have ever played so far.
