Grand Theft Auto IV to rock videogames this Tuesday

Even though it’s not the holiday season, this week will have some of the biggest releases of 2008. On the high-def console side, you have Grand Theft Auto IV – which from early impressions is already in the running for game of the year. The requisite Mario Kart iteration for Wii is already on store shelves, each packed with the free-floating Wii Wheel accessory.

Have you ever played Scarface on the Wii?

Have you ever played San Andreas on the PC?

If you had, you'd quickly realize the extreme benefit of having a mouse-like pointer to be able to aim in GTA. My biggest gripe while playing it on the PS2 for years in GTA 3 and Vice City was the crappy aiming system - which really wasn't an aiming system but more like target and auto-shoot/kill. Add in the Wii controller OR a Mouse (and the Wii is completely incapable of running GTA 4, just using the controller as an example) and all of a sudden...

GTA turns into a skill-based shooter.

Wow. Locational damage based on where you aim, the ability to fire on multiple enemies at one time, prioritize targets, create desired results via aim, make decisions quickly on the fly... All of this is possible with a non-analog stick style control scheme.

I can respect your opinion, but I highly disagree that console analog sticks are more conductive to this style of game. If anything, they dramatically hinder the potential.
