And I present you...the game that gets 10/10 in every review...
Grand Theft Auto IV. The mother of all sandbox games.
Just as you're wondering what is a sandbox type of video game, fear not. I copied the definition about the type of game.
In a game with a sandbox mode, a player may turn off or ignore game objectives.This term is used to describe a mode or option in otherwise goal oriented games, and should be distinguished from open-ended games with no objectives such as Sim City.The sandbox mode is featured prominently in the Grand Theft Auto franchise.These and other games with virtual environments that the player may explore are also known as open world games.Other games where players may ignore the game objectives and explore the world as a sandbox include Freelancer, and Crackdown.
Pendek kata (again).....you'll get 100% freedom in the game. You get to explore around the city, kill whoever you like, cause how big the havoc you want and the best thing is, no one stops you from doing that.
Sweet. Oh yeah....back to my point.
Grand Theft Auto IV is set in the fictional city called Liberty City (In real life, New York). Well Rockstar Games (the publisher and the creator) couldn't use the real New York because irritating people will buat bising and then....controversy starts.
Every single Grand Theft Auto game has a controversy.
For instance, Grand Theft Auto III enables players to have sex with prostitutes and the player's health restores. You can then choose to kill her and get your money back.
Monkey see, monkey do. Joshua and William Buckner shot 2 young teenagers and while being investigated, their actions were inspired by the game, Grand Theft Auto itself.
Oh yeah....Australia banned it.
Grand Theft Auto : Vice City. The game was accused of inviting people to harm immigrant Cubans and Haitians, and featuring anti-Haitian and Cuban phrases. Therefore Grand Theft Auto : Vice City is kinda like a racist game. Not for children.
And of course, another shooting inspired by the game. 3 members of the Alabama police force were gunned down by a 17 year old.
Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas. Mainly because of the 'hot coffee' incident. The name "Hot Coffee" refers to the way the released game alludes to the unseen sex scenes. In the unmodified game, the player takes his girlfriend to her front door and she asks him if he would like to come in for "some coffee". He agrees, and the camera stays outside, swaying back and forth a bit, while moaning sounds are heard. But a smart hacker named Patrick Wildenborg manage to reverse engineered the code from the game, and there you have it. A dirty o' patch. This time, the mod allows you to see the action.
Opps....my bad. Just in case you're curious.
But there's a great thing about the Grand Theft Auto series. You'll get high quality voice overs by actors and actresses. Samuel L. Jackson was one of the characters in San Andreas. You'll also get a great storyline to join in and best of all, you'll get to play great missions.
Finally....Grand Theft Auto 4 came out after 6 months of delay. Rejoice. A game that allows you to explore like nobody's business, hijack any care, kill anybody and have lots of weapons to enjoy.
Grand Theft Auto IV follows Niko Bellic, a war veteran of Eastern European ethnicity,who comes to the United States in search of the American Dream, only to find his cousin has lied about the wealth that was promised to be awaiting him.
As you progress throughout the game, you'll build friendships with your contacts, and enjoy the benefits of that. Like free cab rides, cheaper price tag on weapons, calling off police while chasing you and so on.
