Just started back up GTA IV. I've been playing that one off and on since launch...I just find it SOOOOO repetitive and boring.
Cab to destination, skipping the drive by pressin x
Click on destination
Skip through cutscenes
If possible take your crew and cab to mission destination (skipping the drive again)
Retrieve item a or kill npc x
Beat car/boat/motorcycle chase as needed
Rinse and repeat.
....over and over and over and over and over.
I agree completely. I just recently bought the game for $20 and attempted to play through it.. I still haven't gotten the last island unlocked. It really is repetitive and all of the dense city makes it impossible to enjoy all the new crazy fast cars. The game really makes the series seem stagnant, in spite of innovation... San Andreas came close to being what GTAIII was to me, GTAIV doesn't come close.
As for what I've been playing...
Played the Sword of the Stars: The Pit demo, debating on buying.
Wishing heavily that Morrowind or Oblivion had decent controller support so I wouldn't have to scrounge for some 3rd party controller mod.
Picked up the FTP dungeon crawler MMO Rusty Hearts on steam.. Not bad.
And a sprinkling of old school 3rd/4th/5th generation console games.
Must. Resist. Resubbing to FFXI. Having to buy new Expansion. /ing wrists... Edited, Apr 29th 2013 9:10pm by DamienSScott
