I cut my losses and got the Steam version of GTA 4. Turns out that fixed the problem.
So now I've got the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection on Origin and GTA 4 on Steam.
This leaves me with just one last, but very minor problem.
I have a copy of GTA San Andreas on my computer as well, and the vehicle mods for GTA 4 and San Andreas both use the same format for their filenames. So now I can't tell the damn files apart!
Not to mention the fact that I'm so out of touch with GTA 4 that reinstalling the mods correctly will be like performing eye surgery with my feet.

I've spent the past the past three weeks in super-rage-mode over the fact that neither GTA 4 nor The Sims 2 will run on my computer.
At first I believed GTA 4 no longer ran because of a corrupted install, so I reinstalled it. No biggie, I wanted to start over anyway.
Still doesn't work. Since it's partially dependent on the now-defunct Games for Windows Live, I believed that to be the true cause, which left me with no solution.
Then I tried TS2, and it didn't work either. I'd already seen the fury whipped up about the broken launcher, but was able to find a workaround. Even that didn't work. I immediately suspected EA of foul play; some killswitch they'd planted in the game to force players into buying the newer, Origin-dependent Sims 4.
Then I noticed something. Both games require a disc to play. Both die just as the disc is spinning up. And that's when it hit me.
THE DISC DRIVE.
The drive itself plays movies just fine, but that's because they're sequential discs; the data is all laid out in a straight line. Game discs have their data scattered all over the place, meaning the read head has to move all about the disc. This means that the read head in my computer's optical drive is either dirty or failing.
EDIT: It's not the drive, meaning this is some ridiculously cryptic software issue.
I'm taking it in for a more professional inspection tomorrow.

So they just announced the PC version of GTA 5.
It'll be released a full year after the game actually came out.
You know, now that everyone has the game.
So why not make them...i dunno....buy it again!
GOD I hope they offer a discount to people who already own the game.

Listen, just note me the address of her new page, wherever it might be. I swear, nobody will see it but me. (and maybe the NSA, but that's not my call)
