Games. What a general term. When I turned 7 years old I got my first Play Station and I guess it changed my life. Usually half of the things I talk about with my friends are video games and if its not that, then obviously its about movies/film-making. I play games a lot during the weekends but not as much during the weekday. Mainly because I hardly have time for it during the week but when that sweet Saturday morning arrives, its game on for the next 12-13 hours non-stop. I own many gaming systems and my favorite console will have to be the PS3. I'm not really into the rest of the consoles out there like the Nintendo Wii or Microsoft's X-Box 360 because I've been a Sony fanboy for a very long time.
My favorite game on the Sony PlayStation 3 will have to be Grand Theft Auto IV. The game is set in a redesigned rendition of Liberty City, a fictional city based heavily on modern day New York City. It follows Niko Bellic, a war veteran from an unspecified country in Eastern Europe. He comes to the United States in search of the American Dream but quickly becomes entangled in a world of gangs, crime, and corruption. Like other games in the series, GTA IV is composed of elements from driving games and third-person shooters, and features "open-world" game play that gives players more control over their playing experience.
If "Ayiti: Cost of Life" was a video it would be about Hardship and Education. GTA IV would be an action crime thriller film. If Ayiti: Cost of Life" was a song it would be a Bob Marley song. GTA IV would be "When the Music Stops" by Eminem.
Ayiti and GTA IV are very common in a sense that the goal is to survive. Regardless of how you do it in each game the goal is the same. Make money and stay alive. Also in GTA IV, your actions affect your outcomes as well so you have to be careful sometimes on what you do. Money is a big factor in GTA IV and it CAN be in Ayiti if you choose to make that your priority. Despite the comparisons of both games, there are also many contrasts as well. One being that GTA IV is an "open world" so you have much more choices and sometimes better options than in Ayiti, a simpler much more limited game. The game content as well is different and strategy MAY sometimes play a role in GTA IV to succeed in certain tasks and missions. In Ayiti, you HAVE to make sure you have a strategy working for you and a good back up plan(s). More thinking is required I guess you can say while GTA IV gives you more of a thrill ride.
