Smoking in GTA V? that's a good idea, it would make you feel like a badass. It can't be that hard for R* to add a little smoke animation.

And then, when you suddenly press some button which will force the protagonist to end the animation, he could just drop the cigarette on the ground...

I have an idea which could REALLY work:

Do you remember what happened in some GTAs when you leave your protagonist standing still on foot somewhere for about 5 minutes or more? Generally, some animations started to play
i.e:
- In GTA Vice City, Tommy sometimes after being standing still for a while, he kinda does some "stretching" movements, and he also looks at his watch and things like that.
- In GTA San Andreas, after CJ being standing still for some minutes out in the street, he might start to sing some phrases of in-game musics, and even starting to look at the peds walking in the street (a 1st person camera starts following the peds around).

So... what about having this smoking hability as an animation like these I've stated above? After leaving our protagonist in the street without moving for about 3 minutes, he could start to grab some cigarettes out of his pocket, lighten one and start smoking while looking at the cars and people passing by. And then, when you suddenly press some button which will force the protagonist to end the animation, he could just drop the cigarette on the ground...
I can see R* doing something like this, I really do.

This idea is neither original nor new. The Saboteur had smoking as an idle animation, and many (including myself) have suggested a similar thing in GTA V.

But, most of those suggestions were buried by arguments about how terrible smoking is and how even a violent criminal shouldn't do it because it'd make them some kind of bad role model for kids (because being a murderer and car theif isn't bad, but smoking is; at least according to some people in this thread).

Well ask yourself what use will smoking a cigarette provide? Because increasing health is kinda the opposite of what smoking does in reality. icon13.gif Crap reason mate.

Personally I think the cigarette would work better as a weapon, like how in IV you could pick up cans an stuff and throw them at people, you should be able to pick up a lit cigarette and stub it out on someone, for a laugh, just hearing the sizzle as you touch someone's skin and the reaction they respond with I think would add to the fun.

But for the player to actually be able to smoke, doesn't really benefit the game much at all, face it it's one of those things that will get boring fast, once you've done it once, you probably won't even bother with it again.

Well...I can get high in real life, but i guess it would make the character more relate-able. I thought Niko was just a stick in the mud. He kills people but he's to "high and mighty" to get high. That might be one of the main reasons that Niko was one of my least favorite protags, my favorite being CJ. Also I love missions where that protag has stoney dialogue, Like CJ in "Going to San Fierro?" or Vic in VCS on that one mission where he gets super geeked up on coke.

Just imagine all the organizations and parents that would sh*t a brick if smoking increased your health in the game.

Smoking decreases health and too much can make the pathway to lung cancer. If decreasing-health-in-GTA v-if-you-smoke feature is in the game it will be realistic and it won't encourage smoking. turn.gif

Smoking only impacts your health after you do it for a number of years... an immediate health/stamina decrease would be silly.

I still think It'd be a cool idle animation like in GTA 2 or The Saboteur, but I won't be bothered if it's not included.

It should be only for aesthetics imo, just like in the previous games.

Seeing as I'm a smoker myself, i would like to see this feature in the game, but if its not then no big deal. I can do it in real life anyway.

If i want to smoke, i can buy cigarettes/tobacco + rizla.

If i want to get high, i can buy a draw.

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?

No, I'd rather see the effort put into a detachable spare wheel from the car, or a workable storage boot/trunk than time wasting on cigs.

i think it would be easier to just steal a new car when your tire goes flat. biggrin.gif

Yes, but this would just be a little extra feature for a change than just stealing another one..

Maybe you'd lose health but it'd uhm..help you run faster because you're more relaxed?

Well the fact that you can die is something not encouraging smoking.

Hotdogs in IV aren't realistic, if you get shot 50 times, then fall off a building, a hotdog won't recover your wounds. Things don't have to be realistic.

Why do you think people smoke? It relaxes them, maybe smoking will let you have a better aim temporarily?

^^^beyond me

Anyways, there should be choices like smoking pot or fags. There should be many pills that have different effects too. But none of them should ever have any effects on health whatsoever.

pot = people looking at you strangely. The screen having a funny look and the protag should laugh and say funny things while intoxicated that they normally wouldn't say.
pill #1 = invincibility-super punch and high jump
pill #2 = fast movement while the world around slows down a bit
pill #3 = slow-mo
pill #4 = make every living thing look like skeletons
pill #5 = rampage

So on, and so forth.

Who cares? One cigarette costs 11 minutes of the life. Why do everybody want to be 100 years old? What's so good to be that old?
