Good Saint's Row is better than GTA

Rockstar should just stick with the Red Dead series now.

That's going a little far don't you think? GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas are some of the best open world games I've ever played. While I do enjoy both Saints Row games over GTA IV, that doesn't mean Rockstar shouldn't make GTA anymore.

To different Rockstar developers make GTA & Red Dead, as long as GTA goes back to the fun aspect of the game instead of realistic, I think the next GTA will be mind blowing.

EDIT: I agree RDR is 100x more fun than GTA IV, but I think Rockstar realizes even though GTA IV got very high scores that people want more fun things to do. A hint at this would be the 2 DLC's, they added much more content that resembled the old GTA games than GTA IV. TBoGT is a good example, with the "tank" helicopters that shoot missiles, parachutes, golf karts etc. I think for the next GTA Rockstar will take it back to what made GTA one of the most enjoyable open world games, which was the fun aspect.

Not really a little far because its all down to opinion but hey I enjoy the old GTA games and I do agree they older games are better than Saints Row but with the new approach to GTA (realism) I think the series is going down hill.

Who knows they might take it back to the roots but I don't think they will, that's why Saints Row imo is better.

Red Dead was 10x more enjoyable than GTA IV.

GTA4 was bad end of story, very much like driver 3 GTA4.
Lets hope Saints Rows 3 is good and fun like old GTAs.

The problem is that R* said that GTA 4 is what they wanted GTA to be. So look forward to GTA 5 having stuff like washing your car and walking your dog.

yep I agree unless rockstar can add something new to the gta series and put the fun back in to the game I would prefer them to just pump RDR games saints row 2 was far more fun than gta 4.

Sandbox games suck.

@below: GTA, Saints Row, RDR etc = sandbox games = open world = IMO those kind of games suck.

Trying to sound all clever and stuff lol.

Corrwin2723d ago

It's open-world.

Yes there is a difference, but I don't think you'll understand or care, so sucks to be you :D

Corrwin2723d ago (Edited 2723d ago )

Sandbox: Dwarf Fortress, G-Mod, Little Big Planet.
Open-world: GTA, Saints Row, RDR.

The difference is that in a Sandbox, it's up to you to build the sand castle. In an open-world, it's already there.

Thanks for playing, you can go back to mouth breathing now.

Making fun of people who are actually clever and stuff, lol.

"i don't like sandbox games" is what you are trying to say

i don't like JRPG's very much, but do they suck? NO or else the genre wouldn't have so many fans.

to say a genre of videogames sucks is like saying "cubism sucks" or "modernism sucks because i don't get it"

its sucks to you...but objectively, thats not true =)

imo, open world/sandbox games CAN suck, but if done well, can flourish (like any genre really)

silvacrest2723d ago

its just one guys useless opinion

i wouldn't take it to heart

kanetheking2723d ago
