    As much as I love the mobility of the super sprint and super jump, I think they're the main culprit for why the game feels so unfocused gameplay-wise. Why do I need vehicles when it's so much faster and more convenient to run/jump/glide everywhere? They make me feel like I'm playing Prototype or Infamous or something, but then the combat centers around the shooting with only occasional usage of powers.

    It's not a bad game, but it feels like a grab bag of cool shit that they just all shoved into one thing. I guess maybe that's the point?

    Saint's Row was never the most... focused game.

    Saints Row IV is an interesting game, but I'm not sure I'm into it. It seems kind of all over the place, between the super powers and the shooting and the vehicles and the open worldiness.

    Imma keep playing though because my French-accented thicc protagonist lady is sexy af.

    I enjoyed 3 a lot more. The super powers are fun, but it pushed a lot of the core gameplay of the series into the background.

    Yeah it definitely feels like they smooshed Infamous and GTA together or something. I'm not sure it works all that well.

    a girl i dated like 9 years ago made a post a few months after we broke up to her (public) livejournal about how in love she was, the perfect man, the first time she'd ever 'really' been in love etc. a dude she cheated on me with ;_; and the only thing she said about me was it was obvious i wasn't going to be a long term partner because i 'didn't understand or respect' her love for acting and theater.

    hmmm

    maybe

    i'm willing to conditionally grant that point

    The woman I almost married loves musicals and live theater and she performed a few roles in the sixish years we were together

    Then after we broke up she took up theatre as like her #1 passion outside of work and I was like "Damn, good for her, unshackled from me and free to do whatever she wants!"

    Which isn't totally fair to me, but it was still nice to see <3

    She's good people, anyone but me should totally put a ring on that!

    Saint's Row 4 really does feel like a zany expansion pack for Saint's Row 3. Which makes sense, because that's what it originally was.

    I loved both but I wound up putting much, much more time into 3 than 4.

    There are some (side and main) quests that force you to use vehicles...
    ...but for navigating the open world, no you do not need to ever drive a vehicle.

    That's a shame. There's good stuff throughout.

    You can pretty much ignore the open world stuff entirely and just focus on the main quest if you want.
