Got it! Thank you, sir!

I only ever played the first one on 360 and didn't like. It was just a very sub par GTA IMO. Someday I'll try this one. Someday. I have games still in their wrapper from years ago. I haven't even gotten around to playing Skyrim yet. :roll:

Played Skyrim for awhile shortly after it came out.

Really enjoy the Open World RPG loot-fests like Skyrim. It's a lot of fun but, unfortunately, it had that same low vantage point and narrow FOV camera view that always gives me a splitting headache and some nausea. So couldn't play it for very long at a time, even with an FOV hack.


I DO NOT enjoy the most recent fad in 'Open World' games - fucking Crafting. Perhaps because I grew up in the country doing manual labor, and wasn't a lifelong "city kid", these damn gathering & crafting games just seem like "Work Simulator 2016". ZzzzzzZ. Wander around gathering twigs, leaves, rocks, and continually make mud huts and cattle pens. :roll: Guess I'm old-fashioned in wanting to kill stuff & take their shit like a proper Murder Hobo.

Saints Row 2 is a fun little game, probably the best in the series. It won't run properly on a pc with anything higher than Windows Xp unless you download Powertools first though.

All the old games I've picked up on GOG have had modifications done to allow their use on more modern OSes.

Many are old DOS games that are installed with DOSbox and the settings required for it. But I recall some other Windows games, which weren't working properly on post-XP Windows, which got a similar mod treatment in the installer. WH40k Chaos Gate, and the Great Battles Collection are two examples.

I'd be a bit surprised if they didn't pre-mod it.
