  1. People who are on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter should kill themselves. There's nothing useful on those sites that they can't get off Wikipedia and YouTube.
  2. At least in the Back to the Future version of 2015, annoying websites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram don't exist. But on the other hand, Wikipedia and YouTube don't exist in the BTTF universe so that the young people in that timeline are still dependent on the public school system for the knowledge.
  3. I have watched a longplay of the first Saints Row game on YouTube. It looks like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on Prozac.
  4. You can't really make a new Grand Theft Auto video game without considering the kind of multiverse that the other video games created. Having a game set in the late-2010s or the 2020s is OK but by the 2030s, shortages of fossil fuels will make driving cars almost impossible to do; let alone stealing cars to do criminal/terrorist style missions with. And if you set a Grand Theft Auto video game too far into the future, you could end up with a post-apocalyptic Fallout/Mad Max hybrid that would be "Grand Theft Auto" in name only. And if you set the game in the 23rd century or later, you would have to create a "Grand Theft Auto" game that is set on multiple planets once civilization has cleaned up from the apocalypse and have rebuilt everything back up to scratch (or at least that's what The Game Theorist wants us to believe).
  5. I agree with you Meshy, Vice City is very small and there is nothing to do activity-wise. San Andreas is good; especially Las Venturas where you can play slot machines, blackjack and roulette. Once you get really far in the game, Los Santos simply isn't as appealing as it is when you first start the game.
  6. Interesting car designs you have there, Daciator80. Maybe you should get a job with Rockstar so that you can do this legit for Grand Theft Auto VI.
  7. When I used to play this game, I actually got the nerve to kill the homeless tunnel people. When I saw the score on the score screen, it turned out that killing the homeless people actually deducted points from my score.
  8. Why would people waste their data money on their smartphones to play some crummy game when they could get a $300 tablet and download a good game like San Andreas instead for a meager sum out of their Google Play/credit card money?
  9. Everything we encounter in life is a remark, a release, a ripoff or a rerun. That's why we don't have hovercars in 2015 and we'll never have them in 2050
  10. It's one thing to do digital photography through a laptop or desktop computer where the games are actually decent and you can play for three hours after you do your photo session, but the crappy games they have on the Google Play for tablet computers just isn't worth it to do anything else but look at websites and play crappy Bejeweled Blitz clones and cheesy looking slot machines. Sure, there are arcade and console emulators that you can download on Google Play for the tablets but you can't properly control most of these games unless you're using an external gamepad hooked up to a USB cable. Even though digital photography is a cheap knock-off of traditional film photography, everybody seems to like it even thought they know that the invention of photography preceded the invention of the personal computer. Racing games are a nightmare to play on the tablet computer, some shooting games don't work because you need two controllers to calibrate the game while some newer action and fighting games slow down to a crawl on an Android tablet computer. I believe that when it comes to gaming, the console systems and personal computers are here to stay.
  11. With the way that the cars are becoming anymore and with the economy, I would say that the Honda Civic will become the car of the 2010s decade.
  12. Now that I'm older and wiser with my video game experience, I have to see that the worst game ever is Madden 15. The development of your character in Superstar mode is slower than watch snails race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It's nearly impossible to get your character's overall rating to a higher number without spending a lot of training points.
  13. The answer is simple: Saints Row 4 has cooler graphics and was way more fun to play than Grand Theft Auto IV.
  14. If I ever see Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto IV or Grand Theft V made into a full-length feature movie, I will thank Mr. Houser for you.
  15. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame shows offer glimpses into the arrogant attitudes and moral depravity of the Rock and Roll scene. It's not uncommon for the stars to act cool by cussing to the audience during acceptance speeches. These kind of spectacles have become tawdry events that are marketed mostly to people who believe that the egotistical and immoral nature of these "superstars" are "commonplace, normal and mainstream."
  16. That's nice, but we have cold temperatures in Canada and not everything is less than 60 kilometers away. Our lower population density means that we have to travel farther for most daily errands than our American counterparts and we kinda need the gas-powered vehicles as they have the range to allow us to do what life wants us to do.
  17. A lot of good websites from back in the day (read: before 2007) are gone now. You can find about the good websites that died out a long time ago by going to a certain obituary page for them. Nowadays, the Internet is filled with shitty insurance sites, shitty commercial sites that sell shit for money, shitty social networking sites and shitty government sites that expect you to print things out with that expensive printer ink. I feel that people who only went on the Internet after 2006 are not seeing the real Internet, just a commercialized airplane graveyard of what the Internet used to be. And more decent websites are dying out every day, being replaced with commercial crap that wants you to give our your e-mail address, credit card information and your physical address so that you can buy/rent their services. I believe that the purchasing and/or renting of services belong in a brick-and-mortar building, not the Internet.
  18. Great piece of art. Maybe you should go into graphic design.
  19. I believe that the modern Internet, or the World Wide Web, came into realization around January 1, 1996. Prior to that, the Internet was primarily for academic research. From 1996 to 2006, I believe that the golden age of the Internet existed for everyone to gather information about things without being coaxed to buy stuff. From 2007 onwards, the social networking sites of the world took over along with the insurance sites, the eBays, the Amazon shopping sites along with other sites that contain neither free information nor purposeful information. December 31, 1995 will forever be known in my memory banks as the last day of the pre-Internet era in the Westernized countries (Canada, United States, UK, Japan, Turkey and most of Western Europe). It was also the last day that I would go through a single day of conversation without mentioning the Internet to my closest friends.
  20. I'll continue to use Windows XP for as long as I can but I will become a full-time Google Chromebook user by the end of the year. Mainly, I use the computer to look at YouTube, watch people play video games on Twitch.tv, look at information on Wikipedia, check up on my e-mail and follow the my favorite sports teams through Google. For the past seven years, Windows XP has been a godsend but I believe that Microsoft Windows is a dying operating system and that Microsoft will go bankrupt by the year 2020. I hear that Windows 10 is gathering steam among the game developers and the younger geeks but I feel that Windows 95/98/XP were the good old days of Microsoft Windows. Anything after that is just a reason to cash in on the Microsoft Windows franchise and maximize the profits of the Microsoft corporation. When Microsoft goes bankrupt, everyone will have to become Google Chromebook users.
  21. You sound like a conspiracy theorist but I like it. And the fact that you get your TV entirely through an antenna suggests that not having satellite or cable is not as bad in the United States of America as it in Canada. In Canada, you can't get any good programming unless you pay $90/month for cable or $190/month for satellite television. And once fiber optic TV comes into play, expect to pay about $140/month just for the basic package and the ability to watch "major league" sports like the MLS, FIFA, UEFA Champions League, MLB, NBA, NFL, CFL and the NHL.
  22. It sounds like something I wanted for Grand Theft Auto IV years ago. It looks like two minds tend to think alike.
  23. He also flew a sick child and his parents across the country to a doctor on his own dime when the airlines refused. That is just mere publicity to get him elected as the President of the United States. Once's he elected, Trump will take away the civil rights of the LGBTQ population (including same-sex marriage), bomb Iran with multiple nuclear missiles in a Third World War and make the life of the typical black person a living nightmare with laws that protect the KKK and the skinheads.
  24. I hear that Donald Trump and his Republican cronies want to turn the United States of America into a real-life Republic of Gilead. He wants to make immigration to the US illegal, take away civil rights from people like women and LGBT people, make all crimes into capital offenses, force all young men between the ages of 18 to 21 to serve in the military BEFORE attending university and make everyone attend Protestant church upon the threat of being arrested and sent to the electric chair. He also wants to make "reservations" for black people, Hispanic people, Jews and Muslims where they will be controlled like the Native American people of the late 19th century. At least he wants to send the jobs back from China so that production levels in the US will be higher than in World War 2, at least according to Donald Trump's official spokesman.
  25. I love what you do for me, Toyota And if you don't understand what commercial jingle this line is from, then you're not a TRUE RETROMANIAC like me.
