    I'm 28% through GTA V, but I've only been playing it for four days and I've been taking my time so I don't finish it too quickly. It's an amazing game and probably the best game that I've ever played.

    I think I'm around 40%, but I'm doing the same as you, Jordan - I've waited five years for this game; there's no need to rush it. I am doing all the side missions and the like, and am having such a great time. The level of detail is staggering.

    I feel like I'm in a really weird global shrinking universe. Someone just mentioned "grits" on Doctor Who.

    I'm like 59% percent through. I'm not rushing in GTA5, just having a really good time myself. The missions are really fun but I particularly like the side missions and the random occurances. I've met some interesting characters that way. The game detail is incredible. For example, I've noticed when zooming in on birds with a sniper scope there are about 7 different kinds of real birds of prey in the game flying out in the sticks which I think is a testiment to the level of thought put into the game.

    I also just like driving around and finding all the different models of cars to test out. Finally found a Sabre GT (or Turbo in this game) last night which was my favorite car from GTA4. Its like the in game equiv of a 70s AMC Rebel coupe mixed with a Mustang Mach 1. I love me some old American muscle cars. Then there is just sandboxing around messing things up which gets alot of unexpected results. I wish I'd taken the missions slower because it seems like most games these days the story mode is short.

    My main dissapointment so far is my game doesn't always seem to save cars even when I store them in a garage and quick save right after. Actually So I've pretty much given up customizing them cuz its a waste. Also I'm dissapointed with the talk radio station which seems to have alot less content although its great to have Fernando back. Its a riot that Jessica Walker voices the woman running for mayor. I like to pretend it is Mallory Archer under a fake name since the stuff she says aren't far off from what Mallory might say, LOL.

    I've only saved one car in the garage so far, I don't know what it is, but it was the fastest car I've found so far, so fast that I've locked it away so I never drive it, lol. But it's actually really easy to handle with braking and turning corners.

    I accidentally discovered something so insane in the game today. If you free fall from any height and you land vertically on your head, you won't die... And sometimes you don't even lose half of your health! I made my character fall from the sky and speed vertically towards the ground, then he landed on his head, got back up and continued as if nothing had happened, it was so funny!

    "I shoot my arrows in the air sometimes
    Saying A-O, creepers K-O'ed
    Loot his remains and now his sulfur's mine
    Saying A-O, not today-O
    And then I'll go to work
    Under the birch tree
    And I'll make myself tons of TNT
    And I'll use these blocks to make a big city
    And I'll mine it all using TNT."

    ...These lyrics brought to you by the sound of children's singing voices coming from my living room right now.

    They. Know. All. The. Words.

    I walked into the office the other day and my boss had that song blaring on his sound system.

    Speaking hypothetically, if there was a KOTOR-like game created 5 years after ROTS, would you want the party members to be preexisting characters (e.g. Asajj, Barriss, Maul) or new characters?

    A mix of both, but mostly new.

    I'd buy 3 copies of that game, each for a different system. Then, I'd buy all the DLC 3 times over. Can't believe it's been 8 years since KOTOR II, and we haven't had a SW RPG since then. Hopefully EA will know what's up.

    To answer the question; a mix would be nice. Those characters are nice in that they don't have pre-established ends (well, Barriss and Maul used to...).

    It's my one year anniversary on the Jedi Council Forums, and I didn't even realise until the alert appeared. Well what can I say, besides it's been awesome here and I plan to stay for many more years! I've spent most of my time here on the LACWAC forums and you've all been really awesome, and I've really enjoyed chatting with everyone and discussing the best animated series ever, Star Wars: The Clone Wars!

    @Seerow, I know the feeling - I shot one, and then it pounced and tore my throat out. I hate swimming with the sharks more, though.

    I took a lady's car in the game and was toying with her when she came after me. Then the mountain lion came out of nowhere and pounced on her. I shot it to make sure of what it was since I thought I'd only seen bobcats in the game. Then decided to go find one and try to fight it with a knife. That didn't end so well, LOL

    I hate mountain lions, lol. I was doing yoga on top of Mt. Gordo yesterday, finished up, turned around and one pounced on me and killed me. I got such a fright! Lol.

    Even when I was hunting for one on purpose it surprised me when a lion finally appeared, lol.. I had enough trouble out there along the way with a bunch of dudes on ATVs and Dirt Bikes thinking I was illegal and chasing me around the mountains.

    Yeah sometimes I feel like I'm playing Sims 3 while I'm jacking cars and robbing bank trucks.
