Rockstar's mega hit Grand Theft Auto IV has been on a long roller coaster over the last 8 months since its release. At least in terms of its Xbox Live Activity Ranking.
I think it is an alright news post, but it is basically giving stats about the game, which in turn may be what some people would like to read about. But as far as being important news I don't think this article falls in this category.
When a game as popular as this one is, starts losing momentum, it is important news. Especially with DLC coming around the corner. This could make things worse for T2 and M$
I hated he multi player in GTA4.The wepons varity was so little and lame.GTA4 just sucks a$$ simple as that.
The Multi-player was the saving grace for GTA4..for me atleast... .I still play it occasionally just to race once in awhile..but lets hope they get it right with GTA5...
Damn, multiplayer was just about the most fun part of GTA IV, and I still haven't spent a ton of time with it.
I actually haven't touched the multiplayer. So maybe the stats will go up once I finally get around to it!
I've never really played the multiplayer very deeply either. I'm not a huge fan of it.
Was really well done, but i can't enjoy it unless i'm playing with friends. I remember playing with around 5 friends, we all got in helicopters and dominated in free roam.
Yeah, I hated the MP at first, but after a while I really got into it. It's not the kind of game you can just jump online and start blowing people away from the off. You really have to get used to it. That's why I think it's not as popular as it could've been. Really must jump online with it again soon.
Bu-bu-bu-bu-but teh 50 million$ DLC
Wait until the DLC comes out next month with new online multiplayer modes, on said to give even more freedom that 'free roam mode'. EXCLUSIVELY for Xbox 360.
lol next month people will be playing other stuff and not GTA4.. oh wait... no one is playing GTA4 anymore
GTa4 multiplayer was the s**t. Gta Race is awesome. I do agree thought that it can only be enjoyed with friends. The only thing that held Gta 4 multiplayer from becoming the best multiplayer on consoles was the fact that there was auto-aim. I hated auto-aim. I turned getting into a car a death trap. Fu**k auto aim!!!
I AGREE!!! I loved the MP in this game, but the auto-aim loving noob hosts ruined it for me. Auto-Aim is fine with single player, but not vs. real people. Just takes the fun right out of it. Even a auto aim like Warhawk is bearable... but GTA autoaim was a no skill mess.
I hate Auto-aim with a passion, People in cars had such an unfair advantage it's what turned me away from the online. It just got really annoying for me.
The only multi-player modes I love on GTA is GTA race and regular race. Very fun.
I loved the racing online it was very fun but the game was not very good
Maybe that's because the hit detection is terrible in that game.
I think 6 hours into the game, everyone realized this was not an upgrade from San Andreas, but more like.. just.. another GTA-ish game.The online was OK at best, but the code was terrible. Too bad reviewers take advantage of us consumers though, I was honestly lead to believe that GTA4 was going to be pretty badass, with the previews and the pure zeal behind the words written. I think GTA4 was the most overhyped game of this generation, to where they hype didn't live up to gameplay at all. But since us millions of morons bought it(including me) The games sales performance will be remembered way more than the actual gameplay. I personally haven't even finished GTA4. I played online more to do my "GTA-Roaming-Fun-BS" it was good. The SP mode blew donkey.. But it was all just buggy man. But hey, Sales > Game quality this generation. So all of you that pretended GTA4 was OH so badass, enjoy with GTA5 has even less features, and less quality control, and even less suckers playing online. GTA4 Signals GTA's official "maddening" SaintsROw2 is a better GTA than GTA4 is. Maybe the graphics aren't t here, but the game walks all over GTA4 when it comes to innovation.
Really? Saints Row is more innovative than GTA4. Really? Since when is spraying poop on a city innovation. GTA4 was very innovative. It was the first game to implement the new euphoria physics engine, it added a whole new cover mechanic to the game, the storyline and cut scenes were extemely well done. Saints Row is just San Andreas if San Andreas sucked.
I think they both suck Gta 4 basically took everything that made GTA San great and throw it away Saint Row1&2 tried to do GTA San and failed
completely agree, saints row fvcks all over gta 4
pretty lame. 1. You have to wait for everyone to get "ready", lag is always an issue (360/PS3) 2. Killing someone seems to be a random occurrence, and the terrible aiming mechanic in the campaign is just as craptacular in multi-player BTW. Don't get me started on the Dualshock L1/R1 triggers.... *holds nose* Fighting games DS3 is great, FPS... not so much. 3. Matches are either way too long or way too short. 4. COD4 got it right when it forced people to play with some randomness... something that GTAIV online doesn't. The list is endless, cause the multiplayer portion is a mess, but I guess it was just icing on the cake for an already massive game.
