Haha, I guess since I haven't had such an easy life is why I thrive off of it so much. It's compelling!
A lot of days I go outside, and see evidence of gang people in my neighbourhood: paedophile pimps are especially a problem around here, and the locals just ignore or condone them... makes my frickin' blood boil
Ooih, that sounds like a bit of a frightening place. Protect the children!
But (what I saw of) the GTA 4 story, it ranks for me as one the best game-stories ever, it was just too much for me to deal with... too close to my bone.
Totally one of the best, and I just... UUOOUHG I can't get enough of it. The stress, depressing atmosphere and anxiety it brought was heart-pumping.
I also rank Assassin's Creed II up there as my favourite game of all time (as a singular game; Rayman is my favourite series of all time). It has everything
. An amazing story, amazing graphics, amazing characters, amazing gameplay, amazing atmosphere, amazing music, just... everything about it was amazing, and it also had that "fantastic" element that seems to only be present in Ubisoft games. I can't wait for III.
I hope that one day Crytek will be able to pull off something that could leave such an impact on gamers; I say take games like the above as a little bit of inspiration (I DON'T MEAN COPY OOLOLOLOLOLO), because I see them being the kind of company who could pull something like that out of their hat if they assembled the right team of people, especially when they have such an artist-friendly tool like CryEngine3 on their hands.
