i know i am going to get flame for saying this, but i had more fun with saints row the third than this. (with all the immaturity in that game). Even though both are "open world sand box games"


Flamed by who? The general consensus is that Saint's Row: The Third is a much more enjoyable experience than Grand Theft Auto IV. I share that opinion as well.

That being said, GTAIV is still enjoyable to me, and since the game doesn't run so consistently on my PC, I am going to bite and buy this for myself again, for old times sake.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

70 weeks ago. Nice memory.


Thanks, I just remember that's when I got GTA for the 3rd time (launch CE, Walmart BF sale in 2010, then the BB DotD in Dec. 2011) and it ended up getting traded in each time w/o playing it since I traded my launch CE game in keeping the goodies.

I guess this may be time No. 4 as I need to beat this at some point, but I'll beat SR 3 first.

I played SR3 and GTA4 back to back, loved them both for what they were. very rewarding as you reach the ends.

Yeah, there is something about both of them that has me coming back the replay both of them time and time again. Saint's Row The Third has the pure fun factor, while GTA: IV has the atmosphere.

So, if I have both the original game and the Episodes from Liberty City disc is there any reason to purchase the "Complete Edition"?

Nope. They're the exact same discs in a double case.

ehh Target has had it at this price for some time now (atleast 3 weeks)


Not quite. Target has had the regular edition of GTA 4 and Episodes from Liberty City for $15 each.

I have not played yet Saint's Row: The Third or Sleeping Dogs. All I can say is GATIV is a good game but IMHO, GTA San Andreas was a much better game and sandbox experience., the side activities in Liberty City are boring as hell.

Thanks! Picked this up while using the $10 cert that expired today and used a 5 gc for .39 out of pocket!

Not a bad deal!

Played GTA4 years ago, got bored with it and traded it in, but I've always kind of wanted to go back and give it another try. Not a bad deal for the complete edition.

Is this GTA complete edition a "greatest hits" box or still black box?

I thought the same thing. It took me over a year to finish GTA4, but once I got far enough into the story I got into it more. I hated the side missions and "relationship" crap, people would call you every 5 min it seemed like and sometimes in the middle of a mission.

But for $10 after a reward cert I had to use up, I'll try out the DLC content.

this is a great deal for $15. i can see how people had more fun with SR3, which i think is more comparable to GTA: San Andreas. i was a bit let down with how realistic GTA IV was, but it made sense, being the sequel to GTA III. i missed the weapon leveling and jet pack, but still think GTA IV is a beautiful game. and the soundtracks for Lost and the Damned and TBoGT are fantastic.

My local Best Buy only had Greatest Hits red boxes. Looked for a black box but there wasn't one. There's no real difference besides the ugly red case, right?

Was gonna pick up BF3 used with my Easter cert, but might get this now. Nothing like a good "**** around" session of GTA. Not to mention I love the SOA feel of TLaD, and I've never played TBOGT

Same here, PM'd @ Target for the bonus GC deal, chained the deal to effectively bring the individual cost of each copy to a bit over $6 each.

If you don't want to do all the stupid friend activites, when they call you, accept their invitation. Then call them back and cancel it. That way you won't get negative relationship points. You'll eventually have to do something with them though, because you can only do that so many times in a row before you'll get negative points regardless.

i thought sleeping dogs did it well. you call the chic, you go on a date, you have some fun, get laid, and then she unlocks some collectible finder on your maps. everyone wins and i don't feel like a jerk for ignoring fake video game relationships. plus Chen is awesome.

I felt the same way. Looking forward to trying this out.
