Hey, cousin! The worst game mechanics on PS3


GTA 4 – Managing Niko’s friends

GTA 4 made a lot of changes to the series’ formula – some of them good, one of them pointlessly, peerlessly annoying. In the name of making the game’s Liberty City feel like a living metropolis, you were forced not only to contend with shady mafiosos and Eastern European crime syndicates, but also characters who would call you up just you were dumping a body with demands to be taken to a karaoke bar. Forget the story of redemption and the gritty underside of the American Dream – the true measure of Niko Bellic’s heroism is that by the end of his rise to the top of the criminal underworld he hasn’t staved in Roman’s head in with one of his beloved bowling balls.
