Ancient DOS Games Epsiode 305 - Grand Theft Auto is online!
(Please note that this is a mature-rated episode.)
Sorry this went up a week late but last week was... abysmal... >_<
This week went way better though, so I was finally able to get this video up! :B
I mentioned before how Big Red Racing was the first game I ever pirated as a kid because I didn't know any better. GTA happens to have been the SECOND game... but... even back then something about it was not sitting well with me. It was impressive to me graphically and I hadn't really played a game with the kind of controls and action this was providing... but I also barely got anywhere in it. I was constantly failing missions or getting killed and it actually took several days before I realized that the game had more to it than just what the first chapter provided. :O
Playing it again now... doesn't really feel much better. Even playing more smartly, most of what goes wrong in this game is out of your control and comes down to little glitches or simply not being as "fast" as the game wants you to be, despite its shortcomings, making this a VERY frustrating experience, even when you know what you're doing.
And as for the "controversy" surrounding this game... learning what that was ACTUALLY all about gave me a whole new level of disrespect for this thing... >:(
