The GTA5-trailers got you so fired up, that you started playing GTA4 (again), right?

The song itself is entertaining and enjoyable.
A little piece of fun created in the same spirit as "Gordon Freeman saved my life", I presume?

Don't think I mentioned it before, but if you were trying to nail the tune of GTAIV's loading screens, you nailed it pretty damn good.

Wow, I hadn't even noticed that until now!

Wasn't sure what the instrument they used in the game was, I tried to emulate it with a dulcimer sound. Sounds similar enough!

Sometimes I feel like one of the few people that enjoyed all the man-dates. It added extra layers of depth to the characters and I was always interested in what they had to say. Also Roman was a pretty nice guy who cared about his cousin and I really hoped this song would be about how sure he was annoying but there was still some love there and depending on which ending you got maybe you should remember him more fondly. Hell just one sorrowful bit in this song would've really made this song for me. Still a good song, just not what I hoped for.

I seem to remember you comparing this in some way to Wigglesticks before it was posted, and now that I've listened to it (60+ times between here and the YT version...) I think that was pretty spot-on, at least for this listener: both helpfully sum up my issues with both games in a really, REALLY entertaining manner. This is *even better* than Wigglesticks (first Miracle of Sound song I listened to, that one), though, because it's longer, which lends it to a somewhat better experience when I'm listening to it on repeat.

Maybe if I just played this song during every cutscene and the like I could actually play GTAIV....probably still not, sadly.

I also thought the "no game samples" bit was rather impressive.

Oh it is rather excellent! ...What is a dulcimer?

I will say though, that accent is borderline offensive. :p But funny enough to give a wide pass.

I'm with ya man. I always liked hanging out with Roman and Brucie. Some of the best lines in the game are in all that ancillary stuff. And if I didn't want to, I just told em not right now. The hit on the "friend points" wasn't so severe that I couldn't make it back quickly.

GTA IV is one of my favorite games of all time, so it's frustrating when people keep harping on this single, tiny aspect of the game.

Either way, I had fun listening to this song, and I can tell you had fun making it. Looking forward to what you come up with for GTA V!

That was pretty awesome. I am now a fan. GTA4 I found a little disappointing and it's all the nice little touches like the stuff in the song which I kind of wished there had been more of that kept me playing really.

So that's a little more then until GTAV comes along... Thanks.

That was awesome. You seem to do able to do any accent so that it sounds quite like its supposed to but still different enough to be funny.

The fact that Roman kept calling and calling, and my little brother always swearing like a sailor when he did, was a great source of fun for me. So, this song brought back some good memories. Very on point, Mr. Dunne, very on point
