GTA V is almost about 2 months away and we have yet to see any gameplay. Games that are releasing even next year have already shown people gameplay clips etc. Instead, Rockstar keeps giving out all these screenshots that barely show us anything except for a chunk of scenery or the character doing something in a shot. And even those only come out once in a while. Some of you might argue that they're trying to keep most of it a secret to surprise us or get us really excited about it and that it is a strategy but honestly this is just annoying me. I haven't heard of many games keeping things a secret only 2 months away from launch. I want to see how the game plays out etc. At least show a demo clip of a heist mission and how it will work out or something similar. In my opinion, doing this will get me even more excited for the game then keeping quiet and showing a few set up screenshots.

So, is anyone else here slightly annoyed at the lack of gameplay or do you not mind at all?

GTA V is going to play the same as GTA IV, RDR, and MP3. Why do we really need a gameplay video?

We never get full gameplay trailers for GTA.
There is nothing wrong here.

Rockstar don't usually show gameplay footage. They like to maintain a mystique about the title until they release it.

When it comes to a franchise as big as GTA, you don't want to give away too much. I'd rather wait until I get the game to discover what it'll play and feel like.

You must be new to GTA.

R* never releases gameplay video of GTA so they likewise won't release any for GTA V. It's all part of what one of the Housers said about the first time you turn on the game, they want it to be the first time you truly experience the world for yourself.

It may feel like it sucks right now but trust me once you pop in that disc and see it for yourself for the first time...it will be amazing.

To be fair, there have been gameplay videos in the past - I think either of III or SA - but for the previous titles they no longer do this to maintain the feeling of you experiencing it all for yourself the first time you play.

Have people really not followed a GTA game pre-release before??

Im actually amazed at the amount of people that are surprised that there is no gameplay before its out....

Rockstar NEVER EVER release gameplay pre-release

The ONLY time u'll see gameplay before release is a review or streams on Twitch, UStream etc......probably a week before September 17th

You'd be suprised how much of the trailer footage is actual gameplay.
Its been like that for all the GTA trailers.
its all shot in cinematic mode with a few cut scenes here and there

Yeah pretty much this, they've even been stating it for months but I guess people like it "raw" which won't make a difference besides a hud which we can clearly see ourselves in less than 3 months

I will admit I am slightly annoyed, but it something one must live with. The fact of the matter is, we won't see any solid gameplay until Sept. 17, (unless of course you find someone streaming gameplay which got it a few days prior to release). Really we are only 2 1/2 months away from release.. that's nothing in comparison to the 20 months we've already waited. We only have to do 1/10th of the total waiting we've already done, and the game will be in our disk-tray in no time.

RDR and MP3 had a ton.

GTA doesn't really need a gameplay trailer.

Stopped reading there because I assume the rest of your post is crying. You said it yourself in two months or so the game will be out so honestly I'd be quite happy if we get no more info between now and release. I'd rather know less and be surprised when I play the game than know everything and feel I've beat the game before I've even bought it. To many devs shoot there load way to soon.
