I know this has been done a million times, but what does everyone prefer? I grew up on Grand Theft Auto, playing GTA3 and Vice City all through out Elementary School on the PS2, but when I got the PS3, I was very dissatisfied with GTA4. It was really buggy and it was the same old thing time and time again. The weapons were almost exactly the same and you couldn't customize cars beyond the paintjob. When I picked up Saints Row 3, I loved it. There was so much more you could do with character customization and cars. They even gave you the ability to change how your weapon functions. So the question is, which one is better, the predecessor to video game violence, or its more immature younger cousin that is crazier than a mouse on speed.

GTA because they don't have aliens.

Really, just because GTA doesn't have aliens? Couldn't that be attributed to the style of game. GTA is more serious (I use this term loosely), while Saints Row is more comedic and goofy. At least Saints Row is still innovative instead of using the same thing over and over again.

I liked saints row 2 and 1 way more then gta but saints row 3 really killed the fun for some reason, i couldnt find myself ever going back to it like i did in 1 and 2, i still play saints row 2 just to fly planes around and goof off when I can... I hope this one is fun for replay value... GTA 4 was really poopy so mabe V will be good but who knows we will see tmrw for saints row 4 and in september for the new gta!

I played GTA IV when it first came out on the Xbox 360 and it was so horrible. Aside from the glitching and crashing, there was just something missing from it. Saints Row 4 seems way too easy with the super powers and stuff though; almost like a permanently enabled cheat mode.

GTA IV was boring and terrible to play.

GTA was great last gen, but it goes to Saints Row this gen.

Lets just see if Saints Row ends its run on PS3/Xbox 360 with a Bang or a fizzle.

Seems to be doing pretty well. The concept is a lot more fun than GTA V.

lol are you kidding? i like saints row. i've played 2 and 3, and will probably play 4. but gta will always top it in my books. i know gta v just came out, but there's a lot you can do with the vehicle customization that you couldn't do in previous gta games. other than vehicles, the story was perfect. the fun was over the top. yes, aside from R* is trying to fix the online issue and other issues, gta v tops saints row 2 and 3. i'll still play saints row 4, but i doubt it's going to be more fun than gta v. oh by the way, gta iii was the best gta for it's "era". and gta iii still beats any saints row game
