    Playing more and more GTA. This game is really terrific. I haven't gotten that far, but from what I have played it has been excellent. I'm really impressed with how the story has evolved. It no longer feels like they're just a bunch of character models sitting around talking, but they feel like real people with real emotions and such. The graphics go a long way to make the story more believable. I'm impressed with the whole "cell phone" element in the gameplay. This opens up a lot more opportunities to interact with Liberty City and those in it.

    Oh yeah, and GTA IV has one of the tightest songs ever. "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh, of Eagles fame. I'm not even the biggest Eagles or Joe Walsh fan, but shit, whenever I hear this I think of the unbelievable run the Colorado Rockies had last year and how great the performed down the stretch. That and I think back to when I visited Coors Field years ago. Hopefully I'll go again one day. What a badass tune tho.

    Let's just say...GTA IV makes me cry...from my penis.

    This game is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE...and I haven't even played for more than a few hours. I haven't done many missions, I've just been driving around and really taking in the city. And my, this city is teaming with life.

    For once, all the residents of a city in GTA actually look like different people. I remember walking around in San Fierro in San Andreas and seeing the same businesswoman walk down the street about ten times in a row. No more, no more.

    The addition of the cell phone has been the biggest key addition in this game. The previous two major GTAs were period pieces, both in the 80s and early 90s. Although cell phones did exist back then (and in Vice City & San Andreas, respectively), there was no interactivity involved with them. This cell phone's use is unprecedented. It has text messaging capability, GPS, the ability to both recieve calls and call people, and some other things. You can answer it on foot or in the car, wherever. This really helps keep you in contact with your friends, girlfriends, enemies, whoever.
