GTA; The Lost and the Damned Final Thoughts

Even though it was a product of +Rockstar Games  I thought I would never play and never like GTA: The Lost and Damned because I found the characters repulsive, depraved, degenerate and unlikable, and the protagonist - Johnny Klebitz - was voiced by an overcompensating wannabe tough guy with a very forced "gravel voice".

After playing and completing it though, I have to say I really like it. My initial critiques still stand, but the overall story, pacing and gameplay is perfect for busy people who enjoy the engaging narrative of a full Grand Theft Auto game without the investment of time needed to unlock all the cool toys and see the entire city.

Now I was never a fan of the whole death metal, leather jacket, biker scene so it was a bit difficult for me to get into the story and start caring about the characters even with such an exciting and edgy trailer...

 But once I did my regrets were zero.

I'd describe this as a perfect day-off experience. Long and involved enough to keep you occupied all day but short enough to allow you to get to the conclusion of the story before the sun sets.
