700 Hours in Liberty City (Found via Twitter)

Posted on February 17 2011, 10:01am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

We've discovered an impressive account of one player's (Rockstar twitter follower @Kreyg) 700 hours spent playing Grand Theft Auto IV and its downloadable episodes. 

While we enjoy the “disregard b****y girlfriend, acquire pigeons” philosophy (Ducreux would be proud) that permeates his account of playing Grand Theft Auto IV to 100% completion, it's the sheer breadth of his overall experiences with the game, from custom multiplayer modes to community events to machinima creation that leaves us truly honored that the game has provided such a robust gaming experience for so many.

For the complete story, which includes descriptions of numerous original multiplayer games made up and played in Free Roam or Races by Kreyg and the Hot Blooded Gaming community (like the Ballad of Gay Tony Triathlon featured in the video above), check out the full piece at:

          Hey Guy's, I havent posted here for so long.

          I would like to say something on behalf os the Achievement/trophy community.

          Rockstar please do a duble XP weekend for GTA IV, That would be great, Very helpfull for those who havent gotten rank 10 yet.

          On another note I hope you guy's are all doing well, Im doing pretty good now myself.
          also Rockstar Guy's it would be a cool idea for you guy's to post a list of your most anticipated games of 2011, just an Idea.
          Personally Killzone 3, and Twisted Metal are my two most anticipated, Im looking into La Noire more becuase May 17th is my birthday.

          Anyways talk to you guy's later.

                  Rockstar, just bring next Grand Theft Auto in Hollywood and to the PC version.

                    Well I've got all the save slots filled with saves. (all beat 100% 7 or 8 original GTA IV, 1 TBoGT and 1 TLAD) On the social club website it says I have 164:26:41 in story mode and lord only know I played way more than that online.. Thats one thing I always wished GTA IV had since that cold ---ht I bought it in '08. That is a Stat section like in RDR thats tell you your time played. On Red Dead I have almost 20 days online and 9 days on the story.

                    Anyways :HB: to all those out there with the 100% trophies for GTA IV and the DLC!!

                    That s**t is hard especially the Cage fighting mission on TBoGT where you gotta get less then 10% Player Damage.. took me months upon months to get that "got 100% in all missions on TBoGT" AKA "Gold Star" even though its only bronze...

                      My name's Alex, and I'm a GTA addict....

                      Interesting read,I completed this game 100% before the trophy patch : / Have n't counted but Im pretty sure the amount of time in total I've played GTA is way higher than 700 hours, mostly because of the ace mode called Cops N Crooks (better than that A team free mode mess around)

                                You sound surprised. I wonder sometimes if you guys realise how much people love GTA.
