    I think that's true for everywhere. The good thing about TOP and GetDPI is that the owners/admins/moderators clean up the ad hominem arguments and generally contain things when people start to

    Mitch is a hard dedicated worker.
    I have much respect for his efforts. Those guys should just learn and stop slamming him....

    In general, I do not wish to comment on anyone who is not participating here anymore.

    However, due to the nature of the title, I wonder about 2 things.

    1. GRD, GRD II, GRD III (no doubt GRD IV if it shows up) write ups are no different.

    2. Michigan is full of boring people or deserted while Bangkok seems to be the only place with humans.

    Vivek -- meow!

    the III actually looks to be quite fine, indeed, and a worthy successor to the original.

    i used the II in many challenging situations and it rarely let me down. however, it never had the magic of the original. that is my opinion only, obviously.

    Mitch saw it differently. he has been amazed and pleased at each upgraded model (i say this as someone who has frequent contact with him). i applaud his efforts and writing about it, trying to spread the word, even if you personally find no value in it.

    he turned me on to the original and he is turning new generations of users on to the GRDIII. the whole series is fantastic for a certain type of shooter and i think it's fantastic that he is still writing about it so that new users can discover it.
