Installation took forever, but I'm having a blast.

By which I mean I accidentally drove onto the military base trying to escape the cops and they blasted me with a friggin' tank.

I'm admittedly torn on this game...
Not whether I want to buy it or not. That's not the question. It's whether I should buy it now, or wait for a price drop. I usually do the latter when buying games, but I'm so pumped to play this, I'm not sure I can. The reviews and videos make it seem like it's awesome (which I'm sure it is). I hate paying new game prices, as I feel it's straight robbery, but I may have to make an exception here... Decisions!!

Any of you buying it right away?

How is 60 bux robbery for a new game that could easily provide 100 hours of game time?

There admittedly is the angle you can probably get this in a sale at least within a year, I seem to recall I got GTAIV for $30 near the end of 2008 for example.

... But this isn't CoD, the main game should give 30 hours of gameplay at a minimum going by prior GTA games, nevermind when you DO factor online in. Of all the AAA non-RPGs this is going to be the best hours to dollars value you'll get when factoring out MP, and it'd probably still hold up with online factored in depending on how good GTA Online is.

If patient enough, waiting till the next Steam sale is always a good way to get AAA titles at stupidly low price.

I ALWAYS wait for the sale for the newest Ass Creed title; that shit goes on sale within 1.5 months of its release (granted, it's only about $10 by that point, but then they have the $20 off the next sale that rolls around).

I will add myself that this game is worth every penny you buy it for regardless.
What I've seen/played so far has been really nice, and Rockstar definitely shows their work to be a labor of love, but it still feels like they had a blast creating the world, the setting, the people, the dialogue, the minigames, and so on.

Good question... I will admit it really isn't, when it comes to a game of this scope.
My head's always in daddy mode. Feel bad spending that kind of scratch on myself for a video game, but dammit, I think I'm gonna have to break that mold here. I really want to play this.

Plan on picking this up on XBL Marketplace if it ever shows up. I'd get it on my PS3, but I'm all out of room.

Don't bother with digital, the game's designed to stream simultaneously from an install file and the disc, and when you have both on the drive everything slows down. I assume they'll avoid this on PC (on average there is WAY more RAM to work with afterall) and you can actually get even further apparently on Xbox by installing the game to the HDD then installing the play disc to a thumb drive, but that wouldn't be happening with a digital download I'd think.

Been playing for the past few days.

Love the driving, mission variety, and humor that was oh so lacking in IV.

Hate that the shooting STILL sucks balls.  Seriously, Red Dead had better shooting than this three and a half years ago.  Why didn't they just use that system?  I died on Franklin's first real shooting section because of the awful autoaim, the terrible way you stick to cover, and the fact that enemies can put you down in one or two hits if they score headshots.  Why the fuck are we still putting up with this?  Jim Sterling was the only one to mention the awful shooting controls in his review.  I feel like Assassin's Creed 3 all over again here with the reviews.

...okay, maybe not THAT bad, but still....

Nice to know the driving is good, that's what made me quit 4.
The driving was ass and you had to drive everywhere...

I think $60 for a game is a lot of money no matter how much the game offers me. I know I wouldn't pay for this full price.

I must be one of the few that really liked GTA IV's car handling, since I hear this complaint a lot. In most open world games the cars feel like toys, whereas GTA IV's actually had some weight to them, and each had a different feel rather than just slow and fast.

Games have never been a budget hobby. Those of us that were buying SNES and N64 games with hard-saved $$$ and PS2 games with our first jobs know that games have always been expensive.

Honestly, I think gaming is super-cheap as far as hobbies go.  If you look at the hours of entertainment per dollar investment.  But people yell at me whenever I say that...
