I remember being a kid playing Football Director on my cousin's Spectrum (I was a Commodore 64 guy), and we used to muse about how amazing it would be if his computer could hook up with other computers around the world and we could compete against each other.
I've watched that dream become reality and it makes me feel warm inside.
GTA is great, but what have they done since San Andreas?
GTA4 was good, but it was barely an improvement imho. Everyone marked out for it, but that's because it was GTA, so how could you not? It was just a Russian version of San Andreas with slightly better graphics and an annoying cousin phoning you every 5 minutes to go bowling.
That said, I'm hopeful GTA5 can help get gaming out of it's slump.. here's hoping there is some new innovation at last, instead of this same tired shit we get with every game these days.
