    So, I like Saints Row: The Third...

    It seems like a majority of the Saints Row fanbase didn't like the game. Putting aside the usual complaints of the mission structure being more linear and that there wasn't as much attitude in the game as its predecessor, Saints Row: The Third still ended up being a very fun open world experience. I'm wondering if anyone else felt the same.

    The game had a free weekend/66-percent off deal a while back on Steam which is why I even bothered to try it out. And yes, I realize there are giant purple $#@!s and silly outfits in the game but I have yet to take advantage of that stuff. My only real complaint is that once you buy all of the upgrades, the challenges become too easy, specifically the Survival diversions.

    Exactly. It's weird to say but i felt GTA4 crossed that game/reality line for me.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I thought it was decent, but once I finished the story I haven't played it again since... Unlike SR2 where even after finishing all the missions I put in an extra 10 hours of just fun antics.

    I understand why you liked it though coz its a solid game. Did you ever play 2?

    I've played Saints Row 2 before. In fact, I've played a little bit of the original at a friend's house once.

    Played it a bit on PC when it first came out, dealbreaker for me was you couldn't customise the controls when using a controller. I don't get why developers do this.

    SR3 was my first SR game and I have enjoyed it a lot. I was never a big fan of any GTA but yet SR3 is so much fun. I think it is because I find the controls so much better, and smoother, than the GTA series.

    I've never heard of anyone saying they've yet to take advantage of a giant purple $#@! - kudos.

    Currently downloading it on my Steam account to try out since you're recommending it. Got it during that last sale but not played yet.

    I was disappointed with the game.

    I would even say it is my most disappointed game in the last 3 years that I brought.

    It just felt cheap and crap, compared to SR2 is was a massive step back.
    I disliked the whole style they went for and the DLC style was even more annoying.

    I enjoyed the game to be honest I really didn't have any high expectations for it.

    Never played SR1 and 2, but I played SR3 during that free weekend and enjoyed it. I'm contemplating if I should play SR2 first, or not. I'm not a fan of these kind of games on PC so I plan to get the "full package" edition on my platform of choice (PS3) when its released.

    Ha! I walked right into that. :P

    I just don't think it's that big of a deal, is what I'm trying to say. I'm more interested in the various guns and cars the player has at his/her disposal.

    I've been playing Saints Row since the first one, I don't see how many people could think SR3 isn't as good or better than the ones previous in the series.

    SR3 is a much smarter game especially writing wise.

    I definately enjoyed saints row 3, and having not ever really played saints row 1 or 2, i cant really make a comparison, but i did enjoy the game a lot. Its kind of funny. Saints Row 3 was everything that Grand Theft Auto 4 wasnt.... Fun.

    I really enjoyed the game, had some DLC also but it lacks some polish, that's not saying it was not good looking but I guess I'm just anticipating GTA V and it may be clouding my judgement.
    Gaming on all platforms right now.

    The game lost me when they killed of Johnny within the first 5mins.....I couldn't play it after that. Gat was a huge part of what made the game so damn funny. His character just added so much to the universe....then they go and Kill him off..that really just pissed me off.

    I don't really mind so much that they killed off Johnny early in the game but that he didn't have much of an epic death. I can understand if Volition had to kill off one of the central protagonists to introduce a couple news one though.

    Forgot to mention the radio stations. The Mix FM is the only one I really like.
