Argh! I really want to play Saints Row 2 - I want something silly and fun and possessed of no redeeming values at all! But… there are cars. Arrrgh!
I have never successfully played a video game where you have to drive. I gave up on GTA 4 because I couldn’t stay on the stupid road ever, and I really wanted to play that one because I’d gotten engrossed in the story. I enjoyed Red Dead Redemption and played it all the way through, which I haven’t done with a game in years, because I could actually work the vehicles (mostly) - horses are easy! What the hell is it with cars that slew all over the road for no reason? I drive a car! Every day! I have never run over a lamp post - not even one.
Help me, y’all. I want to play this stupid game, but it gets in my way. I finished the first baby missions and got to a point where I need more rep to go forward, so I tried a race - tragic. Absolutely tragic. First time I got lost. Second time I didn’t get lost, but I did blow up. Third time, I got lost AND blew up. I think I’ve tried that stupid race five or six times and never came close to winning at all. I get stuck rammed into trees and have to laboriously three point myself back onto the road. I miss turns. I find that some lamp posts are sturdier than others. And I can’t find a way to give up on the damned thing - got to be some button somewhere.
Help me! How the hell do you learn to do this? Is it just because I’m too old for this shit? Is it the Y chromosome? My boyfriend couldn’t even watch.
Oh, and by the way - do NOT have somebody who knows you very well make your Saints Row character. It will be creepily accurate, but it will not be flattering. And then it will be disturbing all through the game.
