    has adam even played this game? I would LOVE to see his gamertag and see what games he's actually played. I'm sure he'd lose all credibility. As if he had any to begin with. Stick to reporting dude - don't act like you actually play games we pretty much all know you don't....except for your fanboys of course.

    Hey, Adam, I would love to hear you weigh in on Blur as gameplay, presentation, and fun trumping story, graphics, and realism.

    I knew I was going to enjoy the game for the most part because I do enjoy a good western and I figured rockstar could make a good one. But I was utterly blown away by how much I really really liked it. I had it preordered and paid off before it released but wasn't really anticipating it like I did... I dunno god of war 3... but when I got it home and started playing it I found I was more into it then I was god of war or basically any other game I was highly looking forward to. It's rare when I go to work and can't wait to get home to play a game. Short of a couple very MINOR glitches the game is flawless. The only glitch that I found took away any of the enjoyment was the Mo Van Barr thing but even that isn't a big deal.

    Adam is spot on in this soapbox.

    I used to love watching Gunsmoke. That was one of my favorite shows on TV Land. Then...I just stopped watching it. Think I got sick of it...

    What did we really expect from this game except for it to be nothing less then awesome!! Rockstar games in my opinion are the masters of capturing real life, film, and gaming and wrapping it in to one badass package!! Every Grand Theft Auto game can easily be made into a movie. Mostly because they took elements from well known movies of that genre to build the story of their game. But with all of the games being turned into movies, I'm amazed hollywood never went that route with a Grand Theft Auto Title!?!? Same with Red Dead Redemption. No matter how many times I look at the game I can't help but think of Deadwood the series. But still original enough to be its own story. Well Done Rockstar!!

    Next week: Why Mario Galaxy 2 isn't as good as rated, in Adam's eyes.

    Gotta agree, I finished the game up over the weekend and it's an amazing game! Very sad it's over. Rockstar really knocked this one out of the park. Kudos to a job very well done!

    so the game takes place during a time when cowboys are fading, if thats so then ill pick it up, i always like learning about the end of an era whether it be samurai or cowboy.

    I agree with lamthebat this is how life works and not commenting on what a great game it is would make it worse for these workers because that is saying after working so hard they did not do a good job how would you feel if you were in there shoes then someone was convincing people what you said this thing happens alot its apart of life as is death worring about it wont change anything all you can do is keep moving forward towards the future it may seem heartless but that is fate just enjoy life not just for you but for those who could not.

    Keeps giving me the profanity warning, but I'm not using any, really annoying..

    People compare this game to GTA a lot, that's all fine and dandy, it is GTA in the wild west, but it's so much more, saying it's just that is doing it disservice. What sets this game apart from GTA's the most, aside from the setting and feel, is the side quests also referred to as stranger quests, and, the random even encounters you get, from going after some guy who just robbed a store, to stopping some guy from stabbing a woman to death, to seeing people being chased by wolves, oh, not to mention the gang hideouts, or the Wanted posters to go capture (which is what I do, more money) or kill some dude. I'm pretty sure GTA games didn't really have side stuff like that in it, well, there were the random encounter friends, and getting vehicles for someone, or the drug deals for Jacob, nothing really to the extent of what you see in this game, that's what sets it apart.
