    San Andreas.

    Second is probably the newest one.

    Four sucks, although the DLC stories were cool.

    The third one a pass. Doesn't hold up well.

    Vice City probably holds up better and has a great story with Ray Liota starring.

    Woah, thought 4 was good. Maybe I’m not recalling well.

    5 was amazing.

    I mean, four was fine when it came out, but I don't think it holds up that well. The story isn't all that great and the gameplay leans far too heavily on Rockstar's obsession with realistic physics engines to the point where the driving is more chore than fun.

    Pretty much just talks about how EA canceled this game that actually sounded really good where you played as a group of spies and the game was centered around choices and heists.

    It was scrapped because EA wants every one of their games to be a "games as service" that can milk money out of suckers for months or years after release.

    All the talent left a long time ago anyway. It feels like they have been dead for awhile already. I'm not at all convinced bioware in its current form is capable of making a good game anymore. Blaming EA for meddling seems like a cop-out considering dragon age 2 was terrible in my opinion and inquisition looked like a turd in comparison to witcher 3.

    I thought Dragon Age 2 was a good game. The problem was it clearly needed another six months to a year in development. The story was good, though, and the gameplay was fun. It wasn't as ambitious as the first game, but they also had a tight deadline for it, something I'm guessing was not nearly as much of an issue for Origins.

    All that said, BioWare chose to sell out to EA knowing what EA did. They've shuttered countless studios. They buy a studio, suck it dry, and then cast the husk aside. It's what they do. BioWare knew that going in and sold anyway. And then exactly what we all expected to happen happened.

    Agree about Inquisition. I enjoyed the first few hours of it because it was pretty and Dragon Age, but man it ran out of steam quick. Too much stupid fetch questing and the combat was boring as fuck.

    No gameplay? Weak.

    I feel like if your game is out this year, we should be seeing gameplay.

    Playing RTTS in MLB the Show 19. Got drafted by the Indians. Get called up in June of my 2nd year. Indians are 8 games under .500 and the Twins are running away with the division. I lead the Indians to a furious comeback and take the lead of the division with 2 weeks left in the season.

    Playoffs come, handle the Astros in 4 games. Sweep the Twins in the ALCS. Go to the World Series against the Cardinals. Sweep. My guy hits over .600 with 6 HR's and 14 RBI's in the World Series. Advance to Spring Training and look at the roster. Indians signed Mookie. This game is great.

    I cannot stop playing F1 2018. When I do, I cannot stop thinking about playing f1.

    It's...kinda scary.
