    Got mine last night at 7pm. Its everything that you wanted to be and so much more. The more part is what rockstar didn't tell you and wanted to keep a secret. Game is great in everyway. Just read some reviews they'll sum up everything nicely.

    You guys should too.

    I live in a relatively small town and there was about 1-2 hour wait line for the preorders. I never seen anything like it. I was glad I got there hour early. People were walking out with the game and hiding them down their pants. I saw one guy chasing another. I don't know what for but I'm guessing its something has to do about GTA.

    I think this low-minded, offensive, degenerate trash is the reason why the country is in such a horrible state...I wish I could just stop playing it.

    I usually don't play these games...rather I sit around and watch my roommate play them. So, as a spectator, I can say that I really dig the dialogue and characters (and the voices! hello Mr. Jackson!! hahahah)

    all i can say is that it looks cool

    after plugging in countless hours, racking my kills up to like 10000 in GTA3(not to mention the million times i went on a killing spree and didn't save) i will definitely give this one a try and see if it's worth another 10k kills

    i've played it for 2 days. two fucking days, and ALL of my weapon stats are at HITMAN...

    now, i AM proud of this, sure... but... how does one kill something like 900 people in the course of 8 hours?

    sure, i used all the weapon cheats, for tier 1, 2, and 3 weapons (teh chainsaw is teh roxor) but i don't know... once i started killing, it was just... i dunno. numbing. now i have the option of shooting cars' gascaps to blow them up, shooting out tires to slow them down, pulling them out of the car, beating them to the ground and emptying both barrels of a sawed off shotgun into their mouth, or just tossing molotovs, waiting for the fire department to arrive, and then carving them up with a chainsaw, jacking the firetruck and running over as many people as possible until the firetruck catches fire, and usually by this time i've got helicoptors out on my trail so i wait for them to deploy rappeling SWAT guys and then RPG them down, SWAT team and all...

    god. greatest form of stress relief ever.

    I can't wait to start doing missions!!!

    this shits fo real~

    played it about 2 hrs so far, done a few missions...cruised n bruised....you kno....

    I dunno every time i get a game like gta i try to go real slow. not explore too much.... keep it as slow pased as i can. i *hate* rushing thru games.

    First impressions - very cool. The character physics are awesome this time.... they move real convincingly, like in one bit a gangsta steps off a porch and half turns round to speak and has one foot on the porch and one on the footpath, all his weight and gesture and shit r spot on....

    Graphics r nice.... minigames r nice... everything is the shit so far...

    1 question tho....ive heard its like.... a 30 min or so drive from one end of the map to the other... now iono if theres any extra shit im missing, but the map seems kinda smaller than i expected. i mean sure i havnt driven out of my hood yet, but from the top down map it dont seem unbelievably huge. bigger than gta:vc sure.... i dunno anyone care to clarify?

    great game so far.... would recommend. and bizarre how the hell could u spoil a game wiv cheats already??? the missions n shit r the bestest part!

    yo form..
    word.

    from my understanding, i think its supposed to take a good 30 minutes to go from one end of the map to the other on foot... and like 5-10 minutes driving

    but man, im still in los santos and it by itself has gotta be the same size as VC or bigger. im still finding tons of new places here everytime i play. ventured out to the countryside up north and checked out a couple small towns too.


    last night i built my customized Station Wagon. it's Pink, dropped down on hydraulics, rollin on dubs, and a case of nitrous in the back.
    you should see this thing doing drive-bys with a whole crew in the car.

    lmao bryan....every gangsta in this game is....you!!!

    haha well i annihilated 12 hours of gta today. i usually go on a spree the first day i play a game.... think i get sick of it then wake up the next day thinkin fuck i wanna play thatgame!!

    Its pretty tight - and yeh wes the more i play the bigger this feels....huge... and so complex. I think part of it is just the backyards bashing and running across ppl roofs and stuff - in vc it was like.... road or alleyway.... take yer pick.

    In SA it has a lot of character - each neighborhood has a distinct nostalgia to it. Like that street around emmets place where you get strapped early on. Its like a real run down ghetto lookin street. I found myself quite a phew times just sittin there in mah lowrider lookin at the scenery and thinkin wat the badass conceptart must have looked like.

    Speakin of which....how BAD ASS are the lowriders lol!!!

    Yeh.... this game is definately cool. Only annoying thing is getting stuck in those big floodwater canals. If you lose your car its a looong walk back to a ramp lol.

    One of the best things rockstar did in the whole game i think was your hood. That one dead-end street has so much character, every time i drive in under that bridge it feels different to the rest of the city. I almsot wanna climb up on the roof o my house and wait for some punk ass balla to come lookin for trouble at the wrong end of mah smg.

    This game would be SO uber if it was like a mmorpg... if you could join a gang and defend your 'hood', sit on the roof and pop off enemy lowriders... if rock* ever wanted to go into the online market....thatd b the way to go.

    i appluad rockstar on their work. from what ive seen so far, gtasa is the best gta yet, by FAR.

    I've heard the next GTA title would be online only... but I dont know how credible that is. I agree, it's practically already a MMORPG, why not takeit online?

    agh goddammit! i have no ps(2?) and i don't want to buy one specifically for that game(that's too much money even for this caliber of game). you're making my teeth as long as my legs as i read about your thug tours and i get crazy until the release of it on pc!
    i need it but i don't want to pay for more than just the actual game!

    is there co-op?

    i'm glad you all are playing it. between this and Halo, everyone should be pretty booked until Xmas, and I'll be getting better at art. suckers.

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    Today, I:

    Broke into the airport by jumping over the fence with a motorbike on the back of a 'ramp' towtruck. Flew dodo to rooftop. Managed to land it on the tiny helipad (1/1000 odds). Got the parachute. Took off again in dodo. Flew across to las venturas. Got shot down by fighter jets. Parachuted on to roof of casino. Held out against swat for 7 minutes. Died. Woke up back in jefferson. Where am I?

    Hey form, you know you can get to the roof of that one building by entering the door at the bottom? after getting the parachute, then you can get into the airport by driving around to the side where there's no chainlink...hopping ontop of your car and climbing over the brick wall. I flew to the vegas level and lasted all of a minute before being mowed down by swat guys.

    and- there's a faster plane on the far end of the runways, a private jet
