Pilot, I take offense.

I know that it's true that people are waiting for the countdown, and I'm not insulting the game, but it seems ridiculous to me for a developer to say "Hey everyone! This game is so great that we're going to have a timer on our site for a month just so you can wait to see the trailer!" That seems very conceited.

I'm not trying to offend anyone who's waiting for it, and I'm not saying that the game is bad, I'm just saying that this seems like a prick thing to do.

I respect your opinion. I just think you went a bit over-the-top with it. I understand if you think it's stupid, but, I mean, it's just a countdown for a trailer...it doesn't seem like something that could get someone so pissed off. :-\

That is so lame... Don't they think we have anything better to do than wait for their trailer? The fact that they think we want a trailer so bad that they should have a countdown, while true, is insulting to me. Like we pray for scraps of **** that they throw off the developer table...

No, but B-Rod has.

I for one hope they allow a little more options for the customisation of your character... like plastic surgery so you can change his face... if indeed the protagonist is male... which, lets face it, is likely.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

It annoys me just as much there... But at least there the fans are rabid, and the devs aren't asserting that the fans should be rabid, as the countdown to a trailer implies.

762 in defense of the devs, the last info we've gotten about the game was at E3 and all that was is that it's coming out on the 360 and coming out on October 17th. Two new systems have launched, a lot games have come and gone sense then so GTA might have fallen off a lot of gamers' radars. Now I imagine Rockstar feels ready to finally release some info on the game so they probably said "Hey lets make a deal out of this, lets build some hype for our little game." They just want people talking about there game again. It's not the worst thing in the world.

I dont know why you getting your panties in such a bunch over a countdown they aren't the 1st people to place a countdown to an unvailing they aren't the 2nd, the 10th, 100th or even 1000th. Countdowns on webpages are almost as old as the Internet it's self.

Maybe I should have reposted this in the correct thread:

Seriously, they're worse than the Spore kids. You should check out various GTA4 forums sometime (on second thought, don't).

...and do you not think the same thing would happen if Maxis did this with Spore?

Ah, I haven't been following it closely enough I guess. I thought there was already a lot of information out. My bad.

I lost intrest in GTA after 3

3 was new and shiny. The ones that followed were rehashs with 1 or two new features

Not true. VC was a rehash if any of them were. SA was a whole new experience. And AMAZING. You'd have to play through the game, but you will have these things i call "GTA moments" where a sequence of actions, almost movie like in drama and style, lead to this adrenalin pumping feeling. They only come once in a while, usually to players new to the game because they still are exploring there new freedom, they'll do things that a veteran would never think of. But my point is SA was full of them.

In fact I had one recently, involving slow-motion over a highway seperater (used as a ramp) with slow-motion siren noises behind me, my vehicle spinning out of control while two police cars ramp next to me, only to be smashed into by cars speeding down the highway, while I somehow slip back into control at full speed. This all happened in a matter of 2 or 3 seconds.

Has anyone else had a GTA moment?
