I Feel Like a Gangsta’
Since I have tons of financial responsibilities, I cannot buy a next-gen console. I’m itchin’ for GTA IV, Grand Turismo 5, etc… I did get a chance to play GTA IV at my neighbor’s house the other day and I fell in love with it. Aw, it’s sool cool and he has a big screen TV too so it looked really nice. With touching GTA, it’s hard to go back home and NOT play it. I downloaded GTA San Andreas for my linuxbox and everything ran without a hitch via Wine.
I played some World of Warcraft last night (dinged to 46 on my priest) and was pretty tired – so I said my “gnite” to the guild members and intended to go to bed, but I found myself double-clicking on the San Andreas icon and to my surprise – I was up till 2:00 AM – AGAIN!!!?!?!?! It’s funny playing the game on my PC. I certainly had to get comfortable with the controls – it really handles different than the PS2 controller, but I did notice that I took my time with everything. I actually got more emersed into the world than I did when I played it on my console.
There are a couple of reasons why I think that I’m having so much fun with the game on my PC. First I have a 22inch wide screen, the details in the game seem much different than on console – as well as the loading time. Sitting in my chair, directly in front of my monitor is way different than sitting on my couch playing it on my little bitty TV screen. Overall; I really like the game on my PC. I’ve actually taken the time to “gang-up” with my local posse and it’s also making the ride more fun.
