And I want to say something about all the GTA haters. Do you realize that GTA is the only game on a console that is pioneering open-ended gameplay? No other game does that so that automatically makes this series unique and underrated. If GTA died open-ended gameplay wouldn't exist, but a lot of gamers are too dumb to see that.


Thinking a game is overrated and hating it are two completely different concepts.

Also, if you honestly believe nobody else would've ever thought of "open-ended gameplay" if the creators of GTA didn't implement it in their games, you're full of shit.


Stop being a stupid ass fanboy.

Fact. GTA is the only game on the console market with full open-ended gameplay, or the most open-ended gamplay that is not an online rpg.

Fact. Open-ended gameplay has been labeled by the Industry as not "market friendly" so developers stay away.

Fact. GTA didn't invent open-ended gameplay but it is the only major game out right now that uses it and promotes it. Why? look at fact #2

Fact. If it wasn't for GTA bringing open-ended gameplay into the mainstream, open-ended gameplay would be a long forgotten word.

And for the last part of your quote:
"Also, if you honestly believe nobody else would've ever thought of "open-ended gameplay" if the creators of GTA didn't implement it in their games, you're full of shit."

I would like to know where you pulled that out of? Oh, your ass cause I never said that. I don't care who implements open-ended gamplay. I'm am just happy that it is still alive. Your fanboy attitude and hatred of GTA shouldn't let you invent shit to accuse people of.


Stop calling everyone who disagrees with you a fanboy. Just because someone may not like a game that you like does not mean they are automatically a fanboy. And if you want to talk about open ended gameplay, what about MMORPG's? There are others doing it and will continue to be others who do it.

The fact that he attacked me and flamed me for something I didn't say should be proof enough of his fanboy hatred of GTA.

And you seemed to completely miss my point seeing how I mentioned rpgs. I'm not surprised.

Did you even read my post? You did say it. You call him a fanboy? Look at you. You have a GTA avatar, sig, and almost every post I've seen of yours since San Andreas was released has you mentioning it in one way or another.

No I saw that you mentioned rpg's, but you just wanted to skip that point and proclaim GTA to be the inventor and sole producer of open ended gameplay. Sorry but if anyone is acting like a fanboy, its you.

I think it is really hard to make a claim as to 'overrated game' as everyone has their own taste. And besides is there a formula somewhere that I missed that one plugs in 1. The level of hype/advertisments 2. Hours played 3. cost. 4 level of enjoyment of the hours played = level of 'overrated/underrated/rated just right?

The polls that ask what is the most underrater..overrated.. etc reminds me of goldilocks and the three bears. Well Goldilocks thought one bed was too hard, one was too soft, and one was just right. Well you know that bed that Ms. Locks thought was too hard-- papa bear liked, that porridge that she thought too cold, well Mama bear liked. That game that MrX loves, well MrZ hates, that game that MrZ loves Mrxhates. But again perhaps I am simply a newbie and have not found that aforementioned formula.
Sometimes the beauty of the world is so overwhelming, I just want to throw back my head and gargle. Just gargle and gargle, and I don't care who hears me, because I am beautiful.

Why has it become so chic to hate the popular games like Halo 2 and GTA SA? I mean seriously do people think they're gonna be cooler if they don't like a game? As far as Halo 2 being overrated? Yeah sure the single player is nothing special but where the game really shines is online. The sheer number of people playing this game on Live lead me to believe that not everybody could hate it. As far as GTA I don't feel as if any of the hype said that this game would be revolutionary. Looking at GTA 3 versus San Andreas, the game has made a LOT of improvements: graphically, storyline, gameplay, options, etc.

Whenever I see these overrated/overhypped threads (which seems to be every other week) the first thing I think is that its some person wanting to voice their opinion about not liking a popular/high selling game. Usually I'm right.

Stupid ass fanboy? You are the fucking LAST person on this site who needs to be calling ANYONE a fanboy. Do I need to dig up every GTA-praising topic you've ever made?

As for your other point, I QUOTED you, that's where I pulled it out of. You specifically said, "If GTA died open-ended gameplay wouldn't exist..." That's a bunch of balogna, and you know it.

As for the rest, I didn't attack or flame you. At worst, I said if you honestly believed what you said you were full of shit, which is my opinion. I didn't call you any names, fanboy or otherwise, but if that's the tone you want to take in reply to me, so be it. You're only making yourself look foolish.
