Because it's also a mediocre game that recieves way too much attention and hype.

it's definitely not the first sandbox game if that's what you're trying to imply. it was certainly responsible for an emphasis on that sort of game structure in future console games... but personally, i don't really find that to be very significant. I haven't really found any nonlinear games that i've enjoyed on the console, whereas on the pc nonlinear style games have already done very well prior to gta.

To those who play/played San Andreas and did Vigilante missions on the Hunter, or just flew the hunter to do rampages- I'm curious, do I just suck flying that thing, and need practice? The speed at turning (q and e) is just horrible.

You can spend 3 hours and you would have all the money you ever need, in both Vice City and San Andreas.

The trick in both is that the Hunter can outrun Police Choppers. See, if you do not take down a police chopper, than your wanted level will not go above 3 stars. In Vice City, that did not really matter so much.

In San Andreas, once you had 4 stars (might have been 5), you had fighter jets on you. While it is not *impossible*, it is considerably difficult to avoid missile hits. You can take two or three at most.

In SA you also had to deal with the hunger factor. Flying around for 2 game days can kill you.

Tips: first, get your fat up all the way. This is your buffer. Next, sleep at your personal airfield, because you should have a chopper there when you take off (if you completed all the flight courses on Gold).

As you are flying around, you will eventually start to lose fat as your body is consuming it in place of food. Once your fat is gone, you will be consuming muscle - you do not want to lose that as it is much harder to build up. That is the point where you land at a town near your airstrip, hit up a Pay N Spray, eat, and get a new chopper.

As for the actual flying, fly around and pick off the ground targets. Do not, under any circumstances, take out a police chopper - you are screwed at that point.

I got to level 100-something and had over $100,000,000 in 3-4 hours. I wanted to try and get $99999999, and it turns out the game added an extra digit to the end. Bastards.

Each level gives you more and more money, and the difficulty does not really increase. If you have the hang of things, you will kill the criminals faster than in the time you are allotted at the start of the level - that is, you will have a nice buffer of time. 5 minutes is enough to dodge cops, grab some food, and get another chopper in the air, but I often had anywhere from a 10-30 minute buffer.

Spend a couple of hours and you literally will have no need for money whatsoever. I had a "fun" file where I had all of my weapons maxed out, just if I felt like going around for some wanton destruction.

Couple of my friends have been playing non-stop. To me, it's every other GTA with a lot more emphasis on the little things... Not worthy of the Best Game Ever it's being touted as, IMO.

Which system did he get it for? Reviews said the PS3 had a smoother framerate and less hiccups, but the 360 had much more vibrant colors.

PS3. Though, my other friend got it for his Xbox 360, which I have yet to see.

If by "really good" you mean "shitty; but I had very, very low expectations, so I enjoyed it" then you're 100% right.

It's funny, 'cuz Tekken 3 - one of the shittiest games ever - is above it.

The fact that either of them are on the list, and that the Orange Box is on there twice, makes this list laughable at best and idiotic at worst.
