A previous poll asked us if we preferred fun to the max or realism to the max. Why do people even use the word fun as if it would be the opposite of realism? Of course realism can be fun, then why use them as opposites to eachother? The question you should ask instead is if you prefer ARCADE or realism. Those are opposites, not fun and realism.

Some people believe realism is more fun while some people prefer arcade. So what you do you prefer? Arcade or realism?

Realism, hands down. Arcade because it's so easy and boring gets old very fast Especially arcade driving, I detest that.

I prefer a mix of both, honestly.

These black-or-white polls are tiring, with no neutral/balanced options.

Mostly realism with a fraction of arcade. Too much arcade, and it begins to feel like a game intended for 7 year olds.

I thought about adding that to the poll, but then I realized that almost everyone would most likely vote on that, so the poll would get kind of pointless. I mean, of course most people wants a mixture of it, I'm just doing what the other guy was doing and asking you what you prefer the most if there was no third alternative.

Both is good.
Although I admit I liked how the driving in past GTA games before GTA IV was as opposed to GTA IV.

F*ck it, "arcade", then.

Much as I love realism, I haven't seen arcade done well in a while. Last time I saw that, it was the TimeSplitters series. Miss that sh*t.

I hovered my mouse over Arcade, but then remembered games like Saints Row 3.
I then moved my mouse over to the realism option, then remembered the stupidest threads about a jail system and a fuel system.
Then nulled my vote.

Mix of both.
I like GTA IV driving, but the vehicles should be less heavy IMO.
I really hope that this part is well made, because otherwise, the whole game is ruined. I know they changed it a bit.

Fixed.

Also, the poll is asking which element is more important for you. If the poll had a "Both" option, it would be redundant, as it would say exactly what is known already. Which element do you find more important in a GTA game? Arcade-style gameplay or realistic gameplay? Personally, I went for realism as I enjoyed it a lot in IV.

Yeah this, can't you make a "blend" option or something?

Of the two; realistic. The real answer is of course something in between, middle path and so on.

In between, blah blah, other option, blah blah, unfair polls, blah blah, RIDICULOUS!!!! angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif

He did ask which one you preferred. Not which one embodies your love of video games. Continuing to complain about the poll is mucking up the thread far more than the 'dumb' options ever did.

The perfect balance between the two. But if I had to choose, I guess realism would be the one for me.

SR3 gave a bad name to Arcade. SR2 was much better even though all of the cars felt samey. The ability to mod your main character at a plastic surgeon and change their voice was a great arcade addition as well as a crazy physics, but that was where it should have ended.

SR3 overcooked it and SR4 looks the same.

GTAV needs more cheat codes than even SA to remedy this without changing their beloved "realism"

I like the life like animation and detail of GTA IV.
