I actually prefer Saints Row, just because of the customization in it.

Saint's Row (Great storyline and fantastic customization)
Bully (Great storyline and just generally quite fun)
GTA IV (What's this?)

GTA hands down, bully comes close as its kind of a younger version of GTA with less violence and swearing....Saints Row is just balls

Bully was fun while it lasted but after the 100% there is just about nothing to do.

Saints Row was enjoyable just like Bully to get the 100% and the online did keep it going. It just wasn't as deep as GTA IV is.

Obviously I'd have to say I prefer GTA IV. The deepest story out of the three, deepest gameplay, and online. This poll might be a bit more interesting if we wait and see what Saints Row 2 is like since the original Saints Row is almost 2 years old.

....Saints Row is just balls


LMAO...If it were called GTA:Saint's Row or something of the sort, you would have loved it. If GTA IV was a Saint's Row title it wouldn't have got a bunch of 10's in reviews. You get my point. Saints Row was a great game. But so is Bully and GTAIV.

05-12-2008, 05:05 AM
quite frankly i'm surprised with peoples responses, I expected all GTA IV's. I've never played bully but from the screenshots and gameplay videos i've seen it looks like a great game. I played Saints Row at a friends house once and it didn't due to much for me.

GTA IV is a definite win, because its so deep and the game is just pure gold

GTA IV hands down


then bully and Saints Row

GTA:IV for me. I've played all 3, Saints Row was, in my opinion, a cheap knock-off of GTA, Bully was a good game, but it was a little to, childish let's say. GTA, oh my freaking god, it's deep, it will keep you going for a minimum of 40 hours, and that's if you play it for 40 hours straight AND have the strategy guide.

To be honest there's no competition the people that voted for Saints Row are probably in some country where GTA isn't even out and those who prefer BULLY (although a decent game) were denied by their parents in getting GTA IV...

Come on people this is the hottest game of maybe the past 3 years of xbox 360 life.....:)

I liked Saints Row a lot more then GTA4. Mostly because it didn't leave out the fun. It seemed like GTA was the same mission 94 times. All you did was drive for the first 1/3 of the game. Then drive and shoot. Then get out and shoot for about 3 minutes. All while chasing some random person for whatever reason. It was basically one of the same missions over and over. Not to mention the lack of fun in the activities/side missions, and how bad the online is (besides free roam, even though thats not all that great). Really what kept me going was the story. That is not all that original, but still great. After I beat the main game though the side missions were much to boring to make me go back and 100% it.

Saints Row was just much more fun, including 10X better online play In my opinion (and is 10 times the better value considering its 20 bucks now..). I didn't play bully yet though.

If you judge Saints Row based on what it was 2 years ago and compare it to what GTA IV is today it makes me feel sad in the pants. Rockstar could have put a lot more customization into the game, and the Saints Row online (though laggy) was much more fun than GTA.

Bully was a good game even though I skipped most of the cutscenes. A bit buggy though

1. Saints Row
2. GTA
3. Bully (close 3rd)

It's scary how close this post is to what I was going to say, lol. I've not played Bully (looking forward to it coming from Gamefly though), so between GTA IV and Saints Row, I enjoyed Saints Row much more. I always loved the old GTA games and hated every GTA clone until I played SR, and I was like "Wow it's like GTA with customization!".

I was exited about GTA IV but when I played it was a huge letdown, it's a step backwards from San Andreas in my opinion. Everything that was fun about GTA isn't fun anymore. I hate the "realistic" driving, I prefer the simple old shooting/aiming. I hate the multiplayer. I hate how much damage you have to do to kill people and destroy vehicles. I hate going on the stupid "dates" with the friends.

It's missing ALOT of the fun stuff like tank, parachute, jetpack, flamethrower, fixed wing planes, customization of cars, nitrous boost, bouncing taxis, a big mansion as a reward for beating the game, etc.

Saints Row, however, was great! I loved the level of customization for the character and the cars. I did the insurance fraud over and over again just to see how high I could score even after I had the achievement, you could call a zombie to attack people, it was really fun! Only bad thing was the ending, and I never tried the multiplayer. Can't wait for SR2!

Vice City & San Andreas > Saints Row > GTA IV

I like GTA IV and Crackdown way better than Saints Row and Bully SE. IMO Saints Row is good and very fun when it comes to all the customization and freeplay is fun, but Saints Row's story reeks. GTA is the master of sandbox games and always will be. Saints Row is just a copycat of GTA and it's a shame THQ didn't get sued or something for it being so similar and copycat-ish.

GTA's storyline is top-notch and fun as hell to play. Although, GTA IV could've done alot better if the mechanics wouldn't have changed so much, if the gameplay was a little faster-moving, and if they wouldn't have took so much cool stuff out that was in GTA: SA. Saints Row is good but is nothing more than a spec compared to GTA. It was just a spot-filler until GTA IV came out. Of course I'll still get Saints Row 2 but I'll never lose sleep over it like I will the next GTA game.

And also Crackdown is cool, alot of people compare it to GTA but there's really nothing similar. Crackdown is a cool game all in its own. And I haven't played Bully SE but it looks good and since RockStar made it it probably is good. Who knows though, with how Bully looks I might end up liking Saints Row better than Bully. Bully SE is just like Hitman: BM and Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, they're just upgraded versions of past-gen games. I don't expect to see anything from Hitman or Bully until Hitman 5 and Bully 2 come out, since they'd be the first truly next-gen games.

Saint's Row was okay but I couldn't even bring myself to get anywhere near finishing it, the only bit I enjoyed properly was the insurance fraud because it was fun but the missions and characters where all boring.

I played GTA for a grand total of 2 days untill my 360 destroyed the game and stopped working, but I can honestly say its the best game i've played, there was so much diversity in the play, and it was fun to just run around and do stuff unlike Saint's Row. I can't wait to get my 360 back and to buy another copy of GTA, but all this shit about there is no customisation, big deal does it really destroy your gaming experience? so you can't chose what you look like or customise your car, they where going for the realistic feel and be honest how often do you see car's with hydraulics, full body kits, and outagous paint jobs. Yeah okay it can be fun to do once or twice but if I'm honest I couldn't care less

I thought Saints Row was a great game but it still cant touch GTA and for everyone who wants more character customization that just seems to trivial to complain about they added more to the physics of the game and the graphics and took out all the clothes... oh well

05-15-2008, 10:13 PM
I voted Saints Row. I would put Bully 2nd. I put well over 100 hours into Saints Row, I 1000'd Bully and I've put about 40 hours into GTA IV. While there's no doubt that GTA is the technically superior game, in the end it comes down to how fun a game is to play. I thouroughly enjoyed about 95% of the time I put into Saints Row. I enjoyed about 80% of the time I put into Bully. I've enjoyed probably ~20% of the time I've put into GTA. The GTA percentage will most likely increase now that I'm done with the story, but my opinion of the game overall isn't going to change much because the story was one of the best things about the game.

GTA4 easy. Saints Row was just ok. Good enough to tide you over till GTA came out, but nowhere near as good or fun. Story alone cleans it out, let alone the gameplay and extras. Bully is really good too.

I can't believe how much love there is for GTAIV. It was seriously disappointing. Saints row is like a cheap copy of San Andreas, but with some original, highly enjoyable, ideas. Overall a great game. Although, the online achievements suck as I got it way after it was popular and now no-one plays it.

GTAIV was a huge step back, even from Vice City. It is lacking one huge thing. Fun! There is nothing to do once the story is complete (the story was dull to add, 30+ missions of tutorial?!) also, could they have made the achievements any more boring?!

I have not played Bully, but it is on my wishlist, as it looks really enjoyable.

1. San Andreas (2004)
2. Saints Row (2006)
3. GTAIV (2008)

Proof that games are getting less fun and too realistic over time?

05-26-2008, 02:00 PM
1. bully - because it adds many fresh ideas and is very fun to play.
2. saints row - great customization and diversified missions.
3. gta - i got this game some weeks ago and haven't even finished the story yet, because the missions are so damn repetitive and boring (get car > get to point a > shoot people > get car > get to point b > mission finished). don't get me wrong, all in all it's not a bad game, but it's nowhere near the status it was hyped to...

DwayneDays
05-26-2008, 04:23 PM
I'd get bully, GTAIV felt like a huge chore to me most of the time and I really cant see myself putting in the time to 100% it. Sure the story was god but other than that it felt empty, also the controls were clunky as usual GTA style.

Now Bully may not have the greatest story of all time but we can all relate to being bullied in our school days in one way or another and can vision how great it would have been to rise above and overcome it. Also the controls in bully felt alot more precise atleast for me and whereas GTAIV felt like a chore (especially to obtain 100% honestly all those stupid pigeons? No thanks) Bully actually felt fun to 100%, plus the minigames were alot more fun imho

GTA IV by far. Saints Row is pretty good too because i love how you can customize like every car. And Bully wasnt bad but i played that way back on Ps2 so no need to play it again.

I know it makes me some kind of heathen, but I actually have to go with Bully, then Saint's Row, then GTA4.

Bully just got my attention a lot more. I cared more about what was going on, and had a lot more fun doing it (with the exception of the "Skate/Bike/Walk x distance" achievements, which did get rather dull) than the other two.

Saint's Row I thought was incredible (when it came out; I will admit that it has perhaps not aged well, and from a purely technical perspective, is quite a ways behind GTA). Even if you don't care for the game personally, you do have to look at at least some of what it accomplished: it showed some of the things they COULD have been doing in GTA but weren't. Admittedly, some of those things are now in GTA4 (free aim while driving, anyone? Though I think SR handled better in that respect, at least it's in GTA4), but SR had it, perhaps prodding Rockstar to get off their butts and do SOMETHING with gameplay that had remained otherwise untouched for six years or so.

Mind you, I don't dislike GTA4. I thought the game was enjoyable (though repetative, but I'd give the same mark against Bully and SR as well.) I just think that in terms of what it brought to the table, it comes up a little short when compared to SR (because most of it we've seen before now; admittedly, it may not have been as pretty last time, but repainting a Pinto does not turn it into a Cobra GT. It's just a better looking Pinto), and I just didn't have the level of amusement with either when compared to Bully.

Just my 2 cents.

To be honest there's no competition the people that voted for Saints Row are probably in some country where GTA isn't even out and those who prefer BULLY (although a decent game) were denied by their parents in getting GTA IV...

Come on people this is the hottest game of maybe the past 3 years of xbox 360 life.....:)

Oh really? Let me say you something: I have a lot of games, and most of 'em are adult games like GTA IV,Saint's Row,Mass Effect,Bioshock,Assassin's Creed etc. And where I live, (The Netherlands), GTA IV isn't banned or whatever. And my parents also didn't denied GTA IV to me. So when I say I prefer Saint's Row above GTA IV, you can really count that.

SamW89
06-05-2008, 05:48 PM
The culture in Saint's Row never has and never will appeal to me. I didn;t like the characters either and I didn't think the gameplay was very good at all.

And Grand Theft Auto IV easily beats Bully, even though they're both from the same team. It's just got everything I'd expect from the genre GTA created.

Having said that, if Crackdown were on that list, it'd be a tougher choice.
