SPOILERS I want everyones honest opinion

Ok, but all comedy has to have something or someone be the butt of the joke, and it's all in good fun, otherwise it wouldn't be a joke... It would be sexism, or racism, or some kind of "ism" that would just end with everyone giving up and stop trying to create content, be it video games, or comedy sketchs.
A Limbo Contestant walks into a bar... They got disqualified.

I bought myself a DIY concert stage, but now I need at least 50 people to fill the seats. Because it says on the box... Assembly Required.

I saw my neighbour in his garden, he had just finished installing a new fountain. He says, his mother really likes it, but his dad doesn't. But he is on the fence... So I told him he should get down before he hurts himself.

But that was the point, there was a lot of complaints about the SR2 Boss being viewed as a spycopath, so they toned down the Boss's demeanor in SRTT to prove a point... But somehow it still turned out to be the most sold SR game anyway.
I can tell you for a fact that the Boss' personality and the story are not what carried the SR3 sales.

But for once I want to play a game where I have to build my own badass Saints from a bunch of real underdogs...

I mean, when you have a guy like Johnny Gat on your team, it's pretty obvious you're gonna win.

But when you're working with a shirtless chef, a rejected art curator, and guy with a bowtie who can't weild a gun... It poses more of a challenge.
It's not about the characters being overpowered or not. I like a good underdog story too. But not one where the underdogs are being made fun of by the author.

For the rest we're just gonna have to agree to disagree I guess :/

Yeah, I honestly can't think of any particular reason SRTT got the best sales, of all the SR games there is, SR2 is always the one I go back to.

There's just so much to do beyond the main story, activities, & diversions. So much to explore, so many secrets to find, and you can even join the cheerleading squad in their chant (at least I think that's an option in the vanilla game), among other idle animations Boss can perform while mingling with the citizens of Stilwater.

There's poker and blackjack in the casinos, you can even retire from the life of crime, and become a taxi driver, EMT, firefighter... The list is quite endless...

But in SRTT... (If anyone can think of any form of interactive features there are in Steelport, outside of Activities & Diversions... It would really help the game's case right now)... Yeah, if this was poker, this hand would be empty.

It's not about the characters being overpowered or not. I like a good underdog story too. But not one where the underdogs are being made fun of by the author.
Unfortunately that's the type of girl I am... I try to find the bright side in everything, because inside, my light is almost burnt out.

However, a recent post on some site I read, has me concerned about the main cast mid way through the game, they mentioned it feeling like it was an older generation trying to write lines that a younger generation would say, and some of the conversations had no context at all, it was just one-liners and jokes that didn't pay off... So... Yeah...

I'd need to see & hear these scenes for myself, but... It doesn't sound promising. But it does seem to back-up your "underdogs are being made fun of by the author" line. So I think I finally understand what you were saying now... But it really is one of those situations where I need to play the full game myself before I can make a judgment call.

For the rest we're just gonna have to agree to disagree I guess :/
I guess so, but not everyone can agree on everything. If we did, we'd all just be one big opinion-less emotionless hive mind... No thanks, I'll stick with my individuality please.

I've wanted to stay away from most articles related to previews, till the game went gold. And many of the YouTubers have been well... brats, and unbearable to watch over existing bias. But this week has been one of the biggest info dumps since the announcement for me.

Everything I've read/watched this week, that's come from people who have played the most recent version doesn't have me excited for the story or the characters.

My opinion: OG Saints Row fans are now older and no longer the demographic they're making the game for. By not giving fans a "bridge" game, to have some original faces passing the torch to a new team, we get the already divided fanbase having a coronary about the reboot.

TLDR: The classic gameplay looks like it is still there; but I definitely canceled my $99 pre-order in favor of getting it on GameFly first.

I always come back to both SR2 and SR3 from time to time.
SR2 for the immersion factor : the flurry of enter-able buildings with distinct interiors, the interactions with the peds, the idle animations (I never managed to join the cheerleaders myself, despite the wiki stating that it is possible, I always joined those doing Tai Chi instead).
SR3 because I have never ever EVER found another game in which you can have a 3 way, or even 4 way fight on such a massive scale, add in the impressive enemy variety for an open world crime game (footsoldiers, with guns, explosives, shields, attack helicopters, snipers, rollerbladers, APCs, turret mounted Humvees, tanks, 3 types of brutes and even zombies) and you end up with complete and utter CHAOS.

I need to say this again but Saints Row the Third is the uncontested king in terms of open world mayhem out of this entire franchise.
And if you compare it to every other single open world game that has ever been released, it's pretty high up.
And I fucking despise SR4 because it butchered the notoriety system, and ruined that perfect storm. 😢

Unfortunately that's the type of girl I am... I try to find the bright side in everything, because inside, my light is almost burnt out.
I won't pretend that I understand your state of mind or that I know what you've been through, but as a rule of thumb, accepting everything given to you no matter the quality isn't going to make you happy, it's just going to lower your standards.

Pointing out flaws is just as important as pointing out things done right : that's commonly called constructive criticism :) It's the middle ground between being a fanboy and being a hater, neither of these mindsets help artists improve themselves.

I guess so, but not everyone can agree on everything. If we did, we'd all just be one big opinion-less emotionless hive mind... No thanks, I'll stick with my individuality please.
That's why I like forums.
