    Yesterday I finished the intro mission and then just goofed off for like four hours. I found the hotel that paints ads in three long, thin pieces on it, but no Staples Center. It felt a little strange driving down video game Sunset Boulevard in the video game version of my car. The driving felt a little more controllable than GTA IV but now you can actually hurt yourself crashing. It also seems to be a lot easier to fall off of things - I died once falling off of a crane and another time falling off the Union Bank Tower. Aiming is a lot harder, and I hate how I can't just briefly hold the trigger to see where I am aimed before shooting from my car anymore. Also headshots seem very difficult, even though on the surface the aiming is similar to Uncharted, where I get a lot of headshots in.

    The mechanics for the radio station, weapon, and character switching are a little hard to get used to, but I can tell they will be awesome once I am used to them. I have not figured out how I replay missions yet, though. I feel bad for Franklin - gets dumped via text message and is stuck with a d-bag for a friend. Oh well, at least later on he will get to hang out with the psycho playable character.

    Every time I was going to put the game away I found something new to examine. Just the level of detail of the things lying around Franklin's house is impressive. At one point I rode around on a bus tour of celebrity houses in Hollywood. Rockstar must have some guy whose sole job is to listen to every random idea other employees have for something to put in the game and then say "yes".

    I found one Jump in some tiny beach town at the north end of the map and one paper on a pier, but could not pick the paper up, so maybe I have to do a mission that explains the papers first. I did read the Leonora website, though. I assume that is based on Elizabeth Short, so I can only hope James Ellroy does the voice of the guy with the website.

    The fact the strip club is named "Vanilla Unicorn" is hilarious. The level of detail and R-rating they go into is kind of embarrassing (also embarrassing: me, for exploring this the first day). At least I learned that it only takes $6 to make it rain. And strippers like you more when you put your hands all over them when the bouncers aren't looking? I'm sure these lessons will do me wonders in ten days or so.

    Just a thought, did you try changing the shooting controls in the settings menu to complex, or assisted?

    I can't shoot while driving at all, so if anyone has tips it would be much appreciated.

    I've had GTA IV sitting in a pile of unplayed games next to my PS3 for about year. The hype for GTA V got me off my ass to finally play through IV. I'm about 40% so far and I'd say it's third best in the series for me.

    1) Vice City - Loved this game so much. Must've put 150+ hours into it, easy.
    2) San Andreas
    3) GTA IV
    4) GTA III

    For many, GTA IV is a letdown, but I enjoyed it. Plus, a few characters potentially show up in the next game

    So far my biggest complaint is that the Talk Radio station sucks.

    Yea Vice City was my favorite as well, and the mods for PC made it even better!
    But now GTA V has surpassed my love for Vice City.

    Looks like GTA V brings out the best in people.
