yep ..because people learned to have fun with it ..not to look for san andreas 2 ..

logical choice as they are different games ..

TheIneffableBob5217d ago

Liberty City Stories just came out for PC and PS3.

Government Cheese5216d ago

Of course.. its a GTA game... people are still playing San Andreas and that is almost 6 years old now.

Gran Touring5217d ago

wait so did they actually "fix" the grainy shadow problem that plagues nearly 1/2 the video cards on the market?

thedarkvault5217d ago

well I might just have to fire this up again, but I'm not buying lost and damned and gay tony again(have 360 version too)

Demarco1565216d ago (Edited 5216d ago )

they need to fix that UNPLAYABLE thing in the pc version

KRONie5216d ago

they fixed that long time ago. you just have sh!tty computer.

Charmers5216d ago (Edited 5216d ago )

So they finally got round to fixing all the problems that have been around since day 1 (17 months later). I can't say I have much faith in this patch, historically Rockstar Toronto doesn't have a good track record with patches.

In patch 2 they improved performance slightly whilst somehow managing to remove nearly 30% of all the in game objects (and they didn't even notice)

In patch 3 they re added the objects and performance dropped significantly once more.

In patch 4 they did sweet F A and it was a waste of bandwidth to even bother with it

In patch 5 they finally got around to fixing the fact that when you rode a bike you had no biker shadow. In the process of fixing that "little" thing they screwed up the textures so your car looked like it was sinking into the road.

Now this is patch 6 and with all the "promises" in this patch I really dread to think what the hell they have broken this time. However as others have said "too little too late". I am not going to reinstall the malware commonly known as GTA 4 and I sure as hell am not giving Rockstar any more of my money for the DLC.

Ocelot5255216d ago

thanks for this information

looks like I'm gonna buy the episodes for the PS3 and not the PC, if the PC version is such a mess

Looking Back At 2008, An Unbelievably Incredible Year Of Video Game Releases

Huzaifa from eXputer: "2008 was home to the likes of Call of Duty: World at War, Dead Space, GTA 4, Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, and many other hits, which is outright remarkable."

Some of these low paid video game “news” writers weren’t born before 2007.

Here here

Those that were around before 2000's i am sure are like me that think we entered a world of non readers or those that follow without question.

I can not wait to see fallout 3 a goty game even though it was about water with non content until you add the dlc/updates then you got the performance/crashing

CrimsonWing6990d ago

I don’t think anything can compare to 2023

lucasnooker90d ago

1998 - the best year in gaming! Metal gear solid, crash bandicoot 3, medievil, half life, ocarina of time, thief, tenchu, resident evil 2, Spyro, tomb raider 3, oddworld abes exodus, banjo kazooie.

It was a different breed of a gaming era. You’ll never understand what it was like back then. The aura of gaming, it was different!

KyRo90d ago (Edited 90d ago )

I second this. Gaming was a lot more varied and fun than it is today. I'm 35 so getting on compared to some here but I got to see all the changes from NES up to now but I've never felt so disappointed in any generation than I have this current gen. I was expecting more from this generation rather than prettier versions of games that came before it. Game mechanics have become so refined that alot of games feel the same and has done for a while now.

Maybe it's time to have a break for a while. I love gaming but I don't feel I get much fun in the traditional sense out of it anymore.

CrimsonWing6990d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Abe’s Exodus, and Ocarina of Time are the only things from that list that I liked.

Here’s the 2023 game releases that I personally liked… and big releases that I didn’t care for:

- Dead Space Remake
- Wo Long Dynatsy
- Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Diablo 4
- Fire Emblem Engage
- Hogwarts Legcay
- Street Fighter 6
- Hi-Fi Rush
- Like a Dragon: Ishin
- Octopath Traveler 2
- Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters
- Final Fanatsy XVI (actually ended up not liking this, but it was still a big deal release)
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
- Lies of P
- Mortal Kombat 1
- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
- Starfield (Ended up hating this one, but big release)
- Super Mario Bros. Wonder
- Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (I’m an old-school Zelda fan, but didn’t really enjoy this game)
- Alan Wake 2

I mean, honestly I’ve never seen a year of major IP releases like that, ever.

Profchaos90d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Isn't it just a generational thing realistically.

I've been gaming since way back and I some of my favourite games go as far back as the late 80s for me each generation has a year or two of game changing releases one after another before an inevitable dry spell.

I kind of agree gaming had a different feel games hit different because we didn't have the internet nothing got spoiled and you really had to put in the effort to beat a puzzle which could set entire groups of people looking for a solution. But most importantly games were experimental and not as cookie cutter as today even basics like controls were not universal today r2 is shoot l2 is ads garunteed you can't deviate from that in a shooter back then it could of been square, R1 or R1 and circle nothing was standard.

But as time moves on a new generation picks up their controller they are going to be interested in different things that PS1 demo disc with the t Rex blew our primitive 16 bit brains back on launch but to kids today it's laughable.
The new gen of kids coming into to hobby seem to value different things to us there seems to be a huge focus on online play, streamers, gaming personalities, and social experiences, convience of digital downloads. To me I value none of that but that's ok like my parents not liking the band's I would listen to its just the natural cycle.

Gameseeker_Frampt89d ago

Just about every year in the 7th generation was great and something we most likely won't experience again.

2009 for example had Assassin's Creed 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age: Origins, Uncharted 2, Halo 3: ODST, Killzone 2, Borderlands, Bayonetta, and Demon's Souls to name a few.

just_looken89d ago

It still amazes me we got over 7 rockstar games ps2/ps3 but 3 for the ps3/ps4/ps5

Dragon age 1-3 and mass effect 1-3 in 7ish years what a generation.

Grand Theft Auto 4 Anniversary: The Beginning of the Age of RAGE

Grand Theft Auto 4 is an important game for Rockstar, not least because it was the first title in the franchise to use the newly created RAGE engine.

Wasn’t the Table Tennis game the first to use RAGE?

isarai449d ago

Was about to say the same, but they do say first "in the franchise" so 🤷
