I'm in no way a "grand theft auto hater" I love the series but this game straight out sucked. Killzone 2 also sucked even the graphics (basically the main selling point) weren't all that amazing.
The only reason GTA IV got 10/10 is because whoever reviewed it liked the game, so if you feel that you need the acknowledgment of others that the game is good before you actually purchase the game than go right ahead and follow reviews to the dot, but ill tell you this your gonna miss out on a hole lot of good games.
As for your comment on it never should have been implemented on the Xbox 360 that is something I agree with, it should have been implemented on the PC than been ported to the other consoles.
I really dont want to pick a nonsense console/pc fight, but consoles have had their fair share in introduccing to the public and making affordable to most of us gaming. Its the cheapest way to game and not bad at all, so promises havent been delivered, not the first time this happens.
Consoles are in no way a step forward, but instead they are 3 steps back. HD gaming has existed for a long time and has only really been brought to the public's eye through the new affordability of flat screen HDTV's and of course the Xbox360 & PS3 with promises of true HD gaming.
