Yeah I know I told them you don't play as a gay guy and they said they were joking, but I know them they were serious.

If that was enough to deter them then I'm pretty happy. GTA is trying to teach people to be less douchebaggish towards things they aren't accustomed to. Did your friends throw the controller to the ground and erupt with angst when they found Florian wasn't as grizzled and wartorn as Niko? Or that they had to *gasp* protect a homosexual from being beaten in central park.

Its opening a lot of people to a world they never see, and those too intolerant to even play a game relating to the material shouldn't be playing games made for adults.

And if the people with a problem are adults then they just need to grow up.

GTA is a mature series and if your friends think the title is going to accurately describe the actual game... well, they sound like they're far too immature to be playing it. We never did find out what the 'damned' in Lost and Damned really stood for afaik.

The only people I can imagine finding the title humourous are those younger than 12

*standing in playground*

"Hey, have you heard the title of the new GTA game coming out?"

"No, what's it called?"

"The ballad of GAY Tony!"

"OMFG, seriously? I'm not buying that, if I buy a game with the word gay in it i'm technically gay by default."

*sniggering*

*sustained laughter*

And so on...

i have a feeling your about 8-14 looking at your sig "best GTA PLAYER 1Mill GS" so its probably true all your friends who would also be 8-14 would be acting like "a scared little girl who just found out she had her vagina bleeding and did not understand why" when they heard the title was Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Everyone was the damned in TLAD, Duff. There wasn't a single person who's life wasn't fucked up by the end of the game. That could be said for all the games, really.

Anyway, fuck your friends, they're assholes. Besides, they're only acting like that because they're ashamed closet cases.

"No, I think its great"

Really it is, I know a lot of people who said: "Oh My God, GAY TONY? Really? In the Title"
And I just can't describe the not-logical thinking.

normally when people have sigs saying "best _______ player" they are more then likely young kids, it also shows it more when your friends freak about anything having the word gay in it unless they are a homophobe.

When I first heard the title, I was a little shocked because it's an unusal name for a game but with these recent trailers being pumped out it makes perfect sense.

the name does seem a bit odd, but it doesnt matter what its called. most people will probably buy the "episodes from liberty city" pack. but the name isnt flashed on a case anyway for the whole of the shop to see, and it therefore doesnt make you look gay.

We still have the male stripper mini game.

And btw TBoGT isn't to much. Even if you played as a gay guy I would have no problem with it.

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



R* has taken a pretty serious approach to this kind of stuff with GTAIV... if this was an expansion to san andreas, it would be over the top ridiculous, full of cheap shots and parody gay characters... instead with IV, we're getting a very serious storyline here involving a character who happens to be gay...

in san andreas the "gay" part of the title would of been the focal point... in IV, the "ballad" part is the focal point... this is the new GTA franchise, they said they are taking it into a more realistic realm and not making movie parodies and characters anymore... everything has a serious feel to it..

the florian missions would of been over the top in san andreas, probably having you chase down a rare yellow dildo or something... instead in IV, we learn more about the mayor scandal, the minds of gays, and the consequences/benefits of mixing both worlds...

it's much more deeper than just being "gay" with R* these days biggrin.gif...

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Well, actually, i don't think that R* would make fun of fags... to much negative PR.. eg HATE SPEAK. or whatever, same reason you didn't get a lot of black jokes in GTA-sanandreas.




Also, the main character isn't gay.
