I havent played GTA IV in several months as I devoted my time to Fallout 3... recently though I finished Fallout and picked up GTA again... however, after coming back to GTA, I began playing differently....

I now play with no radar, no HUD, no subtitles, no GPS speech, nothing... all I see on screen is Niko, and the world.

I know where all of the major locations are, such as safehouses, vehicle locations, heli locations, pay n sprays, etc. by heart, so after I smoke a few bong fulls and enter Liberty City, it's like entering a real world.

You begin to navigate by your scenery rather than your map. Evading police is 10x more intense because you do not know where their line of sight is, or if there are more cops on the next street. You need to be aware of what weapons you have and how much ammo for each since you can't see that info.

Pretty much playing like this took my GTA IV experience to the next level, learning the city like a real place.

I recommend some of you give it a try some time.... if you can handle it.

I haven't played in a while; but I would do something similar (blunt instead of bong).
I try to play most games with those settings after I get accustomed to the gameplay.

wow, never thought about that... i too know the map fairly well... i know other islands better than others but, i still know where the main roads take me... you know, i am restarting my game soon and i might just try doing this... i can see where problems may occur but, i'll just turn the HUD back on briefly when i am lost laugh.gif...

nice idea though... i like it...

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.

Cool, especially the weed part. I've been trying to decide what to do today. I think I've found it!
