Like yourself I'm interested with Trevor the most as well. I know what you mean though but I have a feeling Trevor's story will be the most fun from the stunts we saw in his trailer. Franklin REALLY puts me be back in GTA IV's mood with all the dark, gang banger shit & Micheal's story should be interesting as well but Trevor is definitely my favourite so far.
Damn you're pretty close to Wanted then. I'm working on it a second time on PC. :L I think Hangmans NOOSE is still qucker than bomb the base as that mode is hit and miss, plus you want to only play with that with a friend, randoms will fuck it up every time lol.
Yeah the games been out so long the MP is pretty much full of assholes. I did the races with a friend mid last year, it was a pain then too but you just need to be patient and try and get your own lobby.
Theres never more than 50 odd people playing Races on GTA IV at any one time. I remember GTA Race mode being absolute mayhem lol.
