To be honest I love the humour and crazyness of Saints Row 3, it takes the funny elements of the old GTA games and cranks them up to eleven. If I wanted overwroguth crime drama then there is plenty already out there. GTA V is on the horizon, there is the Mafia series, The Godfather games. Saint's Row has taken the GTA premise and offered something different and new, and don't we always complain of follow the leader in the industry. Metal Gear Solid came out and all of a sudden every game offered stealth mechanics, Saints Row came out and it wanted so bad to be a GTA killer, it couldn't do that, so rather than being content to remain GTA's poor unloved cousin the series drove into a different direct, offering something different, I love the fact that you get to use a giant dildo as a weapon. I love the crude humour and far out crazyness. You want something serious, GTA is there for you, you want something so stupid it's awesome then you have Saint's Row.
