PostCheck: GTA gaming weekend event (Event happening; thread closed!)

The recent polls on copies of GTA V and which GTA is best have generated some great discussion amongst GRcadians and I'm thinking about setting up a "GTA weekend event".

The idea would be to have a Friday/Saturday/Sunday over which anyone interested can load up any GTA game(s), play a bit of it and share their thoughts, screenshots and clips in the forum. Any time you want for as long or short as you want; no time or completion pressures!

This thread is testing out the idea - please vote for the option that best fits your thinking :-).

Edit: This event is now happening! It'll run from Friday 22 thru Sunday 24 January!

I've just got GTAV on the PC so I'd give it a little blast for old times sake.

Great, this seems like the right event at the right time for you!

You couldn't be tempted by the thought of driving a Lambo along the beach front with Billie Jean booming out, Dual?

This might be just what I need to get San Andreas on the go on the Xbox. I'd join in.

Alllllllright! It'd be great to see the OG Xbox featuring in the event.

I plan on tackling a bit of GTA IV on my 360 and V on my PS4. Haven't played either of them for years and I'm looking forward to checking them out again.

It's the 360 version on backwards compatibility. The supposedly inferior version. But it's the only version I can get on.

That's still all good, Rula. It'll be great to see you representin' San Andreas at the event!

You'll need longer than a weekend if you're playing GTAO, it'll take two days to load

Hee! Yeah, I don't think the online mode will be to my taste; I'll be offline in V!

Could you be tempted to enter the world of GTA for the event, Orange?

Hey, never mind, dude. If you change your mind at the last moment, you'd be welcome to jump into a car and cause carnage :-).

I'd probably try and join in, as long as it's a weekend when I've got some free time!

Looking forward to seeing you wreck a street, Jen! Hopefully the Fri/Sat/Sun "any time you want for however long you want" approach will allow plenty of folk to join the action.

Yeah I think most people should be able to find some time over course of a Fri/Sat/Sun block to get some GTA time in.

I've voted yes to balance up the Yes vs. No votes at 4 each!

I probs shouldn't have included "No" as a voting option; it's not really relevant as to whether the event goes ahead or not. Even if there are just a few of us, it'll still happen :-).
