Well if there was ever to be a game to go get at midnight at Gamestop or any other place that has a midnight release, it would be for Grand Theft Auto 4.
All week the fantastic options, gameplay, and additions have come out regarding specifics to the controversial game.
There have been great advertised games like Fable that failed to meet the hype. There have been great games that were just what everyone expected like the Halo series. There have been great games that were even better than what you’d expect like Bioshock.
Now, here comes a game that is everything you could want and more…and according to IGN, for REAL this time.
You read that correctly, a 10. A perfect score for GTA 4. What does that mean? Well it means that no matter who you are, you need to have this game. 10 is an absolute mecha of video game ratings, especially at IGN where they only give the truly remarkable games a 9 or above. In fact, if you look at other official gaming reviews on the net, they all have thus far given a perfect score of 10 (or equivalent). By the way, the last game IGN gave a 10 to was Soul Caliber way back in 1999. That means the last two console generations have failed to achieve such a status with a game.
GTA is already set to break sales records including most money put down on reservations. While the game may be controversial and gives guys like Jack Thompson a reason to breathe (albeit wasted oxygen), you cannot downplay the execution and dedication Rockstar puts into this series.
Assuming the reviews maintain this pace, GTA 4 will OFFICIALLY become the highest rated video game in history according to gamerankings.com, surpassing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, another absolute classic.
Go get this game now.
I’ll post next week about the multiplayer possibilities.
