GTA4 is no where near as bad as going into an Airport and slaughtering the masses.
I thought GTA had always been about slaughtering the masses
get some pedestrians lodged into the front grate of your sports car?
thats ok just drive faster!
Perhaps an effort on IWs part to make their stories a bit deeper, and more than just THE MIDDLE EAST, but imo it will simply be more of a short term impact thing, which they have always been able to do in the past. The overall story is something they should improve imo
Then there is the whole vehicle hijack and killing police and civilians, etc...
Now I am not saying the MW2 stuff is gravy, but compared to the GTAs, you are committing less crimes.
It's brutal and very in your face. In GTA you can shoot civlians but they do not react the way the people in this clip are reacting. They don't try to crawl away to save their life or attempt to help a loved one. Even the way the character moves is very deliberate in this clip. It's calm, slow. GTA is usually all about running around gunning things down.
I'd say on the scale of "messed up" this is by far much more messed up than what was seen in most other games.
Yea i agree, GTA feels very tame in comparison to the shots seen in that video. I mean im not against it, i like a bit of grit and dirt in games, but this is a little odd.
MW2 airport is just so much more brutal, I mean it puts you on a path filled with civilians and that is the only way to go and then the second story thing (later mentioned with, "I should of thrown a grenade"). GTA knows not to put you in a mission that requires you to do that, they know that would be the line. I mean they removed wings from planes and changed the color of Police cars after 9/11.
Those are some pretty good points with GTA. Very good discussion
