I got SR2 with the Humble Deep Silver Bundle, and I'm really enjoying playing it concurrently with Saints Row the Third. While the Third is awesome and whacky, and self-aware and all in all a completely different game than SR2, I actually think that there are some things that 2 does a lot better than The Third.

For example, the setting is way more varied. From trailer-parks to suburbs to the big city to the college district to a beachy area... I don't get the same feeling of driving around a living city in 3. I don't know how the actual areas compare, but Stilwater's variety makes it seem like a much larger place than Steelport.

And really, you're going for a more absurdist take on Saint's Row, and they took out those whacky french fry cars?

Also, if you're playing 3 without playing 2, you're missing out on a lot of great inside humor.

P.S. there is a distinct lack of Michael Dorn in Saints Row the Third.

If you're unfamiliar, it's an arpg where you're collecting the Armor of God, and your main method of self-defence is throwing fruit (of the spirit, which is also literal fruit).

It could be nostalgia, but the character of the game is really unique. I used to play this game more or less daily when I was pretty young, but never beat it due to there being no save function. Say what you want about production values, but it's pretty unique.
