Grand Theft Auto IV: "A Perfect Ten"
Posted: Wednesday April 30th, 2008 by

Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV released yesterday to a parade of perfect scores from popular game review sites. [more info] And Guinness World Records is watching the game incase it breaks any existing records. [more info]

Well, that's all fine and good. But when I saw all those 10's, my brain immediately flipped into parody mode. Now, some of you younger folks in the crowd probably have NO idea what I'm referencing. So for the sake of bringing you up to spead here's the IMDB entry for the 1979 film '10'. [picture]

I know I know, the comic is slanted sharply toward the disturbing. And I'm okay with that. Like I told someone during the Live feed while I was working, "I'll consider the bleeding eyes a sign of appreciation." If you ask me Niko Bellic (GTA4's main character) never looked so good. **shudders** Eww, I just grossed myself out a little.

Now, even though I don't think a game needs to be flawless to receive a perfect score. It's still pretty hard for me to wrap my brain around the idea of giving a game a perfect score (on a 10 point system) when a 9.5 is a perfectly viable option. Sure I'm probably wrestling symantics in a pool of minutia, but that's just how I feel. I haven't played the game yet, I can't be certain. It may very well be Bo Derrick in beaded dreads running on a beach in a skin colored bikini. I just don't know.

Ha ha. See what I did there? I brought the whole writeup full circle and crap.
