I have to say I'm really hyped for this game. I'm one of those waiting for a PC version. One thing I love about R*, is that they manage to create great open breathing worlds, in which it's really fun to roam around or break havok. Yeah, the stories aren't usually that bad, but I love to RP at my pace and usually play the story once or twice and then just enjoy the world at my pleasure. It's one of the reasons why I still play SA today.
Here comes my worry... As I understand, the core of the game is going to be online. That's all great and dandy, but I'm just not an online player. I enjoy too much playing on my own, and I don't need other players whacking me just for the fun of it and destroying my experience. Also, I like to taylor my game to my needs, and make heavy use of mods, which definitely (and understandably) won't be possible online. Also, I don't want to depend on external servers, nor do I want any of my gameplay or data being send to whomever.
The online part of GTA V seems to be the game that I really want, just without the online. I really wish R* would add for the PC an option like freeroam, separate from the main stroy line (maybe available once story finished), with most of the plausible features from online, like safehouses, character selection and customization, for offline play. I am quite sure though that this won't happen, and that I will be left with an expensively paid demo of the game I wish.
Don't understand me wrong, I'm going to enjoy the story line as is whatsoever, and the money will be worth it nevertheless. It's just that from this will probably depend if I will be playing this game for years to come, or only for a couple of months.
So, do you think that modders could be able to add many of the online features for offline? Would it be possible? I know we don't know yet enough as to answer this, but I sure do hope it's possible!
