Most of you probably already know about this, but I was looking up the soundtracks of various Grand Theft Auto games, and I discovered that Queen's One Vision is played (during gameplay) on the radio station 'Liberty Rock Radio' in Grand Theft Auto IV. I don't have the game itself, but I heard it playing on a radio station while watching a YouTube video of GTA4. So, I looked it up and confirmed that One Vision is indeed included in the game Grand Theft Auto IV.

The first time I played GTA IV, the night I bought it, the first second of gameplay One Vision was played on the radio in "my apartment" in the game. Really cool!

The PC version is out but it runs like shit. I have the PS3 version but my PS3 doesn't work anymore so I bought the PC version. Don't even think of buying it unless you have a 1 GB Video RAM, regardless of what anyone says. Don't try to run it on an nVidia card either, it suffers from missing textures. It won't work on a processor below 2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo. I have a 512 MB 8800 GTX which is high-end for any other game out there, bute the game still runs like shit...even at 800x600 resolution, I barely get 20-21 fps. The game allocates resources according to your VRAM, if you don't have atleast 512 MB, you won't be able to set any options above 'low', despite Rockstar's insistence that 256 MB VRAM is the minimum requirement. I recommend against buying the PC version. It's not that great a game anyway, it's the only GTA that has disappointed me.

I quite like the PS3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV.  I must say that it is probably my all-time favorite video game series, and this one being very close to beating Grand Theft Auto III.  For me, Grand Theft Auto III was the turning point for modern gaming, just as Goldeneye was the turning point for the last generation of gaming (Nintendo 64, PS1, Dreamcast...).  Goldeneye, if you're unaware, was, in my opinion, the first truly revolutionary shooter game.  It redefined shooter games.  Grand Theft Auto III was a masterpiece: freedom of play, three dimensional city, and a gripping storyline.  Ever since then (and I'm disregarding Driver, which came before GTA3) games have modeled themselves accordingly to the essense of Grand Theft Auto III.

And...

Of course, the inclusion of One Vision on the soundtrack is wonderful news indeed.  GTA has introduced me to several artists, including Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot, and several opera composers/performers.  I hope that the inclusion of One Vision will attract new fans, which I'm sure it will and probably already has done.

Yeah the inclusion of the song induced curiosity in a lot of gamers. I don't post there but I was looking at the GameFAQs boards once for a solution to a glitch in the PS3 version and there were literally 3 threads in the same page asking "wats da name of da song dat goes 'one heart, one soul ...'" and variations of that.

Anyway, have you played Deus Ex? It's a PC game. I'd say a man's life is incomplete without playing that game. It's the greatest game EVER. It was released in 2000 but I've yet to see a game rival it in terms of diversity and depth. You'll be surprised as well. It's a unique futuristic FPS/RPG. The graphics might look dated but there are renderers made by fans to make the graphics up to at least 2004 standards. Once you play the game however, you'll forget about the dated graphics. Actually the graphics aren't that bad, even for a 2000 game.

The only game I consider as good as Deus Ex(i.e., the greatest) is Chrono Trigger.
