I was bored so I went on amazon.com and on the main page they had this game up.

It's already got a 3 1/2 star rating.

Part of the reason is cause dumbasses say "THIS GAME IS GREAT!!!!!!" and end up giving it no stars. Why do people do that?

The main reason people hatin on the game is cause the main character is black. Like this one dude said in his review:

"I don't understand some people griping about the fact that you're black in the game. It's ok to play an alien in some games, but not ok to be a black human? For me, I couldn't care less what race I'm playing as long as the gameplay is fantastic."

Seriously...people get way too worked up over this bullshit. I for one am glad there's some fucking diversity for once in a game like this (for the main character)..the only downsides is this will bring many stereotypes as you know and that G-Unit will take part of this game somehow. If you seen the animated My Buddy video, well...you got a clue now how this game will be? (the video is basically kind of cool but cheesy at the same time. After watching it you'll think that and "G-Unit really considers themselves gangsta huh...animated ones, sure!"

Were there actual people that said they didn't like the game cause the main character was black, or just that one dude saying that?

Cause I really see no big deal about the character being black or not... I mean when you pkay all you really see is the back of their head

There's quite a lot of people complaining about the main character's ethnicity.

Exactly - it shouldn't be a big deal...people are just really narrow minded I guess

I do hope that G-Unit won't be too involved in the game. I mean, if a mission or two involves them in it that'd be hot, I'd love that..but if it's constantly throughout the game, that'll suck.

I have a feeling that a G-Unit hummer will be in the game =P with them G-Unit g rims...

Yeah, I'll blow up something in that game whether I'm black or white

It's black! It's white! *shoots machine gun*

Anyway, AFI has the theme to the video game with the Nine Inch Nails classic Head Like A Hole. At least that's what I was told.

The hell? So this game is a bit hip hop with G-Unit and it's got a rock song for the theme? Talk about diverse..

If they made a mission where the enemy was G-Unit and you had to shoot down each member or something I'm sure it'd sell an extra 500,000 copies just for that

I can imagine the main character right now..after this one mission, rockin a G-Unit spinnin chain I want one of them...but they like $150 for a fake one (here anyways downtown) but they still nice...unfortunately if I wear one to work I'ma get called "G-Unit" since that's my nickname by this dude now.. make that 2...

It's strange, but shooting the hell out of strangers on a videogame and running them over is actually what us humans have come to enjoy. Ah well, not harming anyone! And don't anyone reply to that comment about those kids who shot people after playing GTA, because that's bullshit. It's called "not teaching your kids that shooting people in the face is wrong".

This game rocks. I played GTA3 non-stop (except sleeping ) for about 3 days before I got bored of it. And Vice City was a whole lot more fun because the lead character actually talked. They need to make this game tell a real good story.

And, it's weird that a person like me who likes a challenge would rather play a mission three times over... I mean, after that I just get pissed off and want to smash the screen in. Like those goddamn remote control airplane missions or whatever. FUCKING ANNOYING CONTROLS. Die.

I love GTA. My favorite is Vice City because I know it like the back of my hand. Though I'm pretty familiar with 3 as well...can't wait for this one. My fiance will be buying this before it hits anyone else's hands lol.
