Did you guys see this?

AMAZING.

I'm suddenly much less excited about GTA V.

That looks... preposterous. In an extremely entertaining and polished way.

I've never actually played any of the Saints Row games but it seems like in comparison to the earlier titles this has a far greater comic book feel to it - I know the series has always had a lot of humour but I thought the earlier titles were (relatively speaking) fairly realistic?

I think the general consensus is that with Saints Row 1 and 2 Volition was finding its feet and they were fun games but lacking in certain places. With 3 they really nailed it and with 4 they're now adding all the bells and whistles imaginable.

I can't wait.

Funnily enough, since playing 3 to death, I can't play GTA any more. It just doesn't seem fun.

Saints Row 2 is easily the best game in the series, absolutely tons of things to do, good campaign, even the multiplayer was quite fun if rather too limited.

SR3 cut so much then tried adding stuff back via DLC and ended up being a pale shadow of the previous game.

SR4 looks like the standalone expansion it was supposed to be, Enter the Dominatrix.

This isn't even in it in the same year a GTA is launching.

Not even in it. Not even with a gun that blows your testicles up to 20 times their normal size.

I picked up SR3 in a Steam sale but it has never clicked with me. I think it lacks the excellent storytelling that Rockstar has in its GTA and Red Dead games which makes me want to keep playing their games. Like peej said Saints Row 4 isn't even in the same league as GTAV ;-)

I much preferred SR3 over GTAIV, to be honest. For me the story in GTA jarred to much with the missions you had to do.
Saints Row on the other hand doesn't even pretend to be meaningful.

4 looks horrible on 360 now. Seriously. It's almost unplayable.

It's certainly got a lot of crazy things, but it looks boring
