If this has already been discussed, then lock.

So we have seen cigarettes in GTA, but if I'm not mistaken then protagonists never smoked even in cutscenes. Do you think a feature of smoking should be added, maybe to increase health or something?

Smoking was seen in Vice City but you had to enter a cheat. But smoking in V should be something completely different the cigar should be bought from shops and it should end after about 15 minutes of smoking. sigh.gif

Increase health? More like decrease health. Unless you're talking about weed wink.gif

I loved that detail on The Saboteur, so yes, I think it would be really nice, it would add realism.

In the Beta of GTA:SA there was the opportunity to smoke but it was cut out before the game was released. confused.gif

Actually it could be a funny irony.

In RDR after certain missions John will light one up.

This comment made me laugh. Nice.

In all seriousness, it is likely smoking could appear but there won't be a special controller button for it. It will probably just happen at random. I thought it was really cool when you bought a drink or hotdog in previous GTAs and Niko/CJ would actually eat it and throw the scraps on the floor, and the bottle wouldn't just vanish.

Maybe there is a vending machine to buy cigarettes or something.

He's pretty much the only protagonist in Rockstar's games who lights the occasional smoke, but he doesn't do it that regularly, either.

I don't recall there being others. Not even Cole Phelps, who lived in a time were cigarette's health issues weren't really developed therein a lot of people smoked.

Even CJ didn't smoke, which I found to be quite surprising, judging by his life and people he hangs around. I'm against smoking in GTA, it just doesn't seem right.

In RDR you can chew tobacco and that will increase your Dead Eye, I wouldn't mind if a system like that is implemented.

Why would I want to watch my character smoke?
If I wanted to watch people smoke I would go where lots of people smoke.

Max smokes in cutscenes in MP3 also.

Yeah let's have realistic cigarettes and realistic sitting in hospital with lung cancer for 90% of the game.

Peds and friends should also try to avoid our character because of bad breath aswell, and your character should be wrinkly with mouldy, rotten teeth.

Please quote where I stated that drinking is also fine.
Besides, drinking is more a social thing and is not so bad if only done very rarely.

Smoking is what poor people do when their life sucks and they complain they have no money yet waste it away on a stick with chemicals in it to make them feel better when it does the complete opposite.

People who drink 24/7 though are just as bad as smokers.

I'm seriously suprised why all of you are so excited and eager to smoke in GTA V.

Wanting to smoke was something most children did at around 7 years old because they saw people in films do it, and saw their parents do it so they think
'oh boy I'll be real tough when I get to smoke!'

Then some time after you realise how low it is and would get over it, but here's the children still in the state of mind of a 7 year old impressed by their 'badman' parents and people in movies.

Smoking is for deadbeats and wanna-be thugs. Basically people with a low IQ and immature perception.

Anyone who's started smoking after 1990 is, in my mind, immediately deemed a retarded c*nt.

that happened in a day when smoking was advertised, before they plastered health warnings everywhere
Lil Jacob smoked, john marston (a protaganist) smoked, don't remember there being a massive increase in child smokers then

I grew up in a time there were health warnings plastered everywhere and all of the children in my classes in primary school were using pencils to pretend to smoke and pretending to be their parents.

So don't throw that bullsh*t at me smile.gif

I'm not a smoker (only tried it in high school), but seriously that posts reeks of ignorance. confused.gif

Infact the rest of you better cut it out. If you're not for the idea simply say so and move on. No need for the politics surrounding it.
