I wanted to start a forum for people who haven't played SR4 until today, when you can try it for free.
I honestly was uninterested in the idea of a sequel to The Third. First of all, I had enough of that silliness, and the fact that it was an overblown DLC-made-full-game (as rumor had it) wasn't conducive to catching my attention.
Boy was I wrong. This game is fucking amazing. I'm an hour in and while I've yet to get into the "open-world" balls deep (if you will) the 'raditude' is overflowing. A great example of people literally having fun making a video game. I thought it would be saccharine, artificial and focused on hitting that dopamine button, but it's so much more than that. I honestly was surprised that people brought it up for GOTY discussion after radio silence for half a year, but I see what they mean now.
