I still have to play this game, so skipping the parts with the ending. Don't want to spoil myself.

Same here, watched anyway. It's really hard for me to play old games. I have no problem watching really old movies though.

I think it's the realism that's the issue. The actors in old movies are as real as actors in modern movies, but models in old games look a lot less real than actors in new games.
Still, once you get past the first 45 minutes and no longer care about the models and textures, you can really start to enjoy the mechanics and controls.

Good point, one of the reasons I'd kill for a remastered Vice City.
