I have in my 15 years of gaming never encountered a more annoying way into a game, and even then finding the game almost unplayable in it's splendor on my above-middle range PC. This is completely unacceptable from any developer, and one publishing this crap only 3 months after SPORE did the same mistake and suffered the consequenses, might have had the brains and experience to avoid repeating it, but it coming from ROCKSTAR, one of the worlds systematically (well until today!) best developers, is completely beyond my imagination. Upon finally finishing the 45 minutes installation and the 30 minutes registration process, i have to begin by setting every graphics-setting (there's only a couple of sliders so you have no control over anything!) to low, and therefore feel sort of "unworthy" to play the game. After beginning to play, a couple of different but VERY STRANGE errors happens, each delivered with a coded error message that makes it impossible for me to know what "i did wrong" or how to correct it.
I am SO angry with rockstar for having killed my joy of having bought this game. :-(
