Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

Disappointed by GTA IV?

That's an in-game screen shot.  It looks like they tried to model New York City, even though they still insist on calling it Liberty City.

When I'm asked to bust a floating pile of bricks with my fist and eat the mushroom that pops out to grow 3x as big, I can accept it.  Reality was checked at the door when I picked up the controller.

When I'm asked to drive down a poor simulation of something I know well, I'm probably just going to be frustrated.

What's wrong with that as a mock times square? not enough traffic? not enough pedestrians? agreed.

Other games have done it, but they were all previous gen. If anyone could get it right it would be GTA and it would be this gen console.

Hey, has anyone noticed that this is far from being the 4th game in the GTA series?

What's the big deal? Liberty City in GTA 3 was meant to be New York inspired. Vice City - Miami. San Andreas - Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

Sounds like that theory that we can accept simulacra that aren't close to people, but look "peopleish", but when a robot gets very very close to looking like a human, there's a point where our acceptance of the robot drops dramatically - it's too close yet too far suddenly...

I think it's more like "if you read the book before you see the movie, you're bound to be disappointed."
