Day #21: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas!
General Thoughts: The Grand Theft Auto series provides the original open-world game setting, where you can go anywhere and do whatever you please. Want to be a firefighter? You can do it! Want to beat an elderly woman with a golf club? Go for it! Want to get in a shootout in a fried chicken restaurant? Fire away! What you do is all up to you, and it’s great. As far as noob friendliness goes, it doesn’t really tell you what’s happening or what the controls are. On the other hand, it’s pretty easy to figure out what does what, for the most part.
31 Minutes of Play: I got absolutely nothing accomplished during my 31 minutes of playing time, but in a fun way. I ran around with my thumb up my butt, stealing cars, punching people, getting busted by the police, and then also getting killed several times. For instance, I picked a fight with a prostitute. After punching each other in the face several times, I tried to move on and steal a car but then her pimp got all offended and pulled me out of the car so a police officer could bust me. It’s not over yet, Pimp! After I got out of jail, I did steal some cars and run over quite a few people. They weren’t very happy with me. Ooopsie!
Fun Rating: 4 Flattened Pedestrians, out of 5!
This is the Action Flick Chick, and you’ve just been kicked in the ass!
