Pointless GTA IV Intro [rumor]

meh The poster of this video blows. Unless he is a Rockstar North team member who put the video up to see how many hits a pointless video with no game content, spoilers, and anything of value can get in a few days. Then, he is genius.

About teach4foodone of us since 2:17 PM on 09.13.2007

You name it, I play it. The only console I don't have is the PS3 and that is by choice. I am proud to still have an Atari 2600 that works! I recently added a Nintendo 64 and Atari 5200 to my collection of classic systems!

I have been a hard core gamer every since I could cross the street to my local Sears to play "Sinbad" pinball. I have had a home gaming console since the original Pong and haven't stopped gaming. I've been lucky to attend 7 E3s, write reviews for several webzines, and have been published numerous times in print regarding education and gaming. If you haven't figured it out, I am a teacher :-)
