When did you get the game?

Recommended Posts

Legomanarthur

I got GTA IV in the beginning of 2009 on PC but I couldn't get it working because my PC couldn't handle the game, but I kept it "just in case".

Then I forgot about it and finally got it during Christmas of 2010. I was so happy and amazed that I rushed the game unintentionally, but I had some incredibly great memories from it :inlove: .

 

Some times after, I learned that EFLC was already in stores, so I bought it in mid-2010 and played the sh*t out of it like GTA IV :p .

 

Then, I finally got a new PC that could handle GTA IV with its DLC, and I still play it from times to times :) .

My mom got if for me without me even asking week of release. I was only like 9 and I hated it at first I thought it was too dark so I turned it off and played San Andreas. I tried it again a few weeks later and fell in love with it and played it constantly. I'm playing the story again right now.

GTA IV was the first GTA game I every purchased or played. I got it for Christmas 2010 and it was the best game purchase I ever made. I had never followed any of the GTA games but I happened to see the trailer for IV and thought it would be a good game. The thouhgt didn't linger long. I soon resumed my regular gameplay.

 

It was the holiday season and I was looking around for deals and there was a whole stack of red cases on the shelf so I went to investigate. For $19.95, GTA IV Greatest Hits was still available. I bought it that day and haven't stopped playing it. This is one of the best games that I have ever played.

For me it was September 2009. And now I am so addicted that I don't think I'll ever get around V. By the time I get to play V, GTA VI will probably be out.

March 29th, 2010.

 

Or at least that is when I got my first trophy in it :colgate:

 

I got my PS3 for Christmas 2009. I was 13 at the time and for the first few weeks my mum wouldn't let me have 18 games. Then after much begging she gave in and let me have MW2. Then a couple months later I got GTA IV.

About a week or two after release on the PS3, and then 5-6 months after the PC version released.

I had played the game for the first time in the summer of 2008 on the PS3 of a friend of mine, but I never owned a copy until I got it for PC in 2009. In December 2010, I bought GTA IV: The Complete Edition for PC.

I got my copy in October 2009 for the PS3. I heard that the GTA series inspired The Simpsons: Hit & Run, which was a childhood favorite of mine. I was introduced to VCS and GTA 4 by my cousin and a friend a few years later, and I loved them after playing for only a few minutes. After I saw the great reviews GTA 4 was getting online, I knew I had to have. Sadly, my parents viewed video games as a waste of time, so I did what any rational 15-year-old would do. I joined a site called Lockerz.com which gave me rewards points for answering pointless daily questions. I did so until I was able to redeem GTA 4. It took me 3 months, but it was totally worth it in the end.

Bought it on release day. And what a carry on it was! It was sold out almost everywhere. I spent hours travelling around the city looking for somewhere that still had stock left. Found a store and I got the 2nd last copy.

I actually didn't get GTA IV until Christmas 2012. I had just gotten a PS3 a few months before. Got EFLC during the early months of 2013.
