Note: To all PC gamers, don't get frustrated by this problem, it will take sometime to fix, in the meantime, if you cannot wait, just buy a favourite console, PS3 or Xbox 360 depends on your budget and get the console version and play it peacefully for the rest of your life in your little cozy room. PC games as always give dramas to gamers.

Seriously, I'll get flamed to hell for this, but the GTA games are not as great as people make them out to be. Granted that yes, using cheats to get a helicopter and then go to the top of the tallest building, spawning a motorctcle, and recklessly driving off the edge is fun, thats about all that makes the game fun. doing stupid stunts.

That interview is shocking. It sounds like the kind of self righteous shite that EA come out with and really is disappointing to hear staff of the Houser brothers' company making such insulting statements towards their customers. Rockstar were always considered by me to be one of the most highly passionate games companies in the industry until I read that interview and now it's hard to tell what drives them.

To some extent I agree, gerard. I like them but to think of how much the series has made seems a little absurd. Personally I loved III and once I had finished that I had no great desire to play the rest (I've tried them and never got hooked like I did with III). It seemed like maybe they accomplished everything they needed to in that one..

Got it on PS3 since release date, still only have 25% completed and hardly play it now. When I do it is usually to annoy the cops and go on killing sprees while robbing cars

Kuduros, your comment "it's hard to tell what drives them" might be the fact they are now owned by Take-Two. I was a loyal fan that played the original 1997 PC game. This recent debacle smacks of Take-Two looking to maximize short-term profits and to hell with the quality of the product. I would have thought games publishers would be watching the mistakes Funcom made with their Age of Conan title. It was also released with major problems and initially Funcom denied they had any issues. Take-Two is currently trading at $12.10, down 50% in three months. Perhaps this has something to do with Rockstars failure to admit the widespread problems and the gearing up of its PR team to play down any negative comments.

The more interesting and realistic statistic is that probably only like 1 out of 500 people who have technical problems with this PC game will actually call tech support --generally calling tech support is about as useful as tossing your computer off your desk, and then trying to judge from they way that it bounces how many drivers you have to reinstall.

[the company's Kevin Hoare confirms users shouldn't let themselves be bent on playing the game with the highest settings, as when they were designing it, "it was with the intent of having future growth with the game."]
That's just a load of crap.. First of all, while I am aware of my system meet the recommend system requirement doesn't mean I can run the game in highest setting but I should be able to run in high setting at the very least. Second, high setting is designed for the intent of having future growth with the game. What kind of pathetic and unacceptable excuse is that! in other word, you're telling me if I want to play the game with high quality graphic I have wait for 1 or 2 years with new gaming PC. Finally, with so many technical issues with the game, I am starting to wonder is the company paying the game critic to write those reviews for their game? like IGN: 9.2 out of 10 and Gamespot 9 out of 10. Are you kidding me with title that poorly optimized for PC as well as many of technical issues in the game earned excellent score, no way I'll say no matter how great this game is with such major technical issues around that is not going to earn any higher than an 8 at the highest.
