Grand Theft Auto IV is one of the biggest games this generation. With scores that almost rival Ocarina of Time and high sales. However, you rarely ever hear stories about the multiplayer. Well with Grand Theft Auto IV being on sale this week, my brother and I decided to download it so we could play with each other. The carnage and fun you can make up by yourself in the massive city is worth the ten dollar asking price alone. Just from playing three hours, we had quite a few hilarious stories to tell.
My biggest highlight was when my brother and I were in the heart of the city. I had the cops on me for killing another player but I needed to pick my brother up. Swerving my car around a corner, I stop in the middle of the street to pick him up. My brother quickly approached the car before quickly running away from it yelling "Oh shit!". Before I could turn to look back, the player I had killed rammed the back of my car at full speed before shooting me through the back window. We laughed our asses off for quite a while after that.
Sadly however, there are quite the few little cheaters in the game. Giving themselves ungodly precision and invulnerability kinda takes the fun out of it. However, if you find a game with just normal players, be prepared to fight for your life. New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums
, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the cblogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
