Yeah that's the kind of humor present in the SR series. Hate it or love it :D

i kinda liked the first game, but the second just seemed like a ton of childish mini-games to distract from the fact the game had very little real substance, and was of very poor quality. just seems like a blatant clone of GTA dont infinately worse? but that's just me.

After GTA 4, many people prefer Saint's Row now.

I love both Saints Row.
I love all the GTAs - even the old top down ones.
I love Just Cause 2.
I love Red Dead Redemption.
I love all the Fallout 3 and New Vegas.
I love all the Assassin's Creeds.
I love Red Faction Guerrilla.
I love Bully.
I love Morrowind and Oblivion.



I think there is a pattern here, but I just can't quite put my finger on it. But I got a really good feeling that I am going to love Saints Row: The Third.

And life is good.

Define many. I feel pretty safe in saying that the soon to be announced GTA5 will again blow Saints Row away in quality, consumer interest, and sales.

Yep!

Can't wait for this. Only worry I have is that THQ has been doing some pretty shady things of recent regarding multiplayer.

I really enjoyed the first game, but the second just went a little too childish for me. I realize they are trying to differentiate from GTA IV's more serious and mature tone, but it was bit over the top for me. Still a fun game though.

They really need to do something different with SR3 if they want to get most consumers attention. I really don't feel like driving around for hours on end shooting up opposing gangsta's again. I was hoping that since this is supposed to take place in a smaller, more rural area, that we might get to see Red Faction Guerillas destruction engine (which they own), but I imagine if they had something that cool to hype, they would be hyping it already. If they added that and a driving engine where the cars didn't feel like weightless toys, I would be in 100%!

You want weighty driving...like GTA 4?

I'll admit that GTA IV's driving was a bit too weighty, but it sure as hell beat Saints Rows cars that felt like little cardboard toys. At least GTA IV had a decent damage model with chassis deformation. SR cars just get crinkly like they are wrapped in tin foil when you crash them.

I would say a driving model somewhere in between the two. I think GTA IV's cars felt nice and weighty, but they lacked traction. SR's cars felt really light and responsive, but with TOO much traction and not enough mass. If you ever played the old Driver games, I think those struck the perfect balance. The cars felt really good and weighty, but they also had enough traction to carry weight around corners, as opposed to GTA IV where you slid right on through because the cars lacked traction. That's just my .02.
