I enjoyed GTA 3 and Vice City. Couldn't really get into San Andreas and just really didn't click with IV. Saint's Row The Third and Sleeping Dogs both gave me what I wanted from GTA IV.

Yeah, kinda sucks that GTA-V has been put back til September. Figured id need some hooker mugging practise before Vegas in April. :lol:

Talking of the top down view, does anyone else remember GTA London? No-one i speak to seems to recall it, beginning to think it was all some kind of dream.

I do. But not very well, I couldn't get past the second mission and gave up quickly. Remember breaking the crates to get weapons?

Never played it, but it should totally happen after GTAV is released.

there are enough games now doing what GTA is supposed, better than GTA ever has, that im not overly interested in GTA V. although if saints row the third is any indication of where that series is going, i might go back to GTA

I can see what you mean. Saints Row 2 was awesome, but 3 just felt like a huge disappointment.

How does one go about demanding Sony put one of the top down GTA's up on PSN? Id totally pay for that. Should never have got rid of my PS1 all those years ago, lol.

Lego Lord of the Rings is ace. And they've made Gandalf's sword glow like it should. I love you Lego.
