Yeah I definitely had more fun with Saints Row 1 than GTA4. Obviously GTA is vastly superior in graphics and story and detail and everything... but the controls were so clunky, the missions were too hard, the checkpoints too unforgiving... I love the sense of humor of Saint's Row, it's like a parody of GTA.
I wouldn't say parody so much as just the lighter side- GTA is too up itself to be really escapist, while SR is fun for unwinding - they sort of complement each other, I think.

I actually didn't expect to like SR1 (preferring FPS and racers) until my wife gave me it for Xmas one year (and then SR2 for Xmas the following year - it's annoying that I won't see SR3 until next year!)
