The fact that some of you can say this hasnt been enjoyable marketing is hilarious. How many years have we been scouring for info.

Alot of you guys forget things like the find the blue thread, or genesis topic. Alot of you forget people finding dogs in cages of trailer 1, six months after the reveal. Alot of you are forgetting all the initial buzz around the epsilon twitter discovery, or the first leaked pictures of franklin and chop artwork, or the photo viewers.

Name one other game that you have followed this religiously and maybe you will have a basis for argument. But the marketing is not only working, but it is also keeping our interest way better than any other game.

I will agree that it is weird that we dont have a site yet. But with 6 weeks left, all that means is the month leading up to the game is going to be saturated with assets for us to nibble on, peaking our hype right up until release.

I think most people give them sh*t for their marketing because, unlike other developers, they dont just give us what we want, be rather keep us wanting more.

Idk man, I know a lot of people who are hyped. But I feel like as long as we get a decent little flood about 2-4 weeks before release then everything will be fine. Everybody will be talking about it.

Truth.....


But i think what OP is trying to say is that they don't give info regularly , and i think he feels like they're playing with us but they're not it just part of the marketing....

When they do show something however they never disappoint and all is forgotten and we're back at claiming R* the best again rahkstar2.gif

y'know i can't remember the last time i saw an advertisment for milk. probably becuase people who want it will buy and don't need to be reminded that it is available for purchase. while those who don't like milk won't be swayed in their opinion.

That was just here on this forum though. It seems like major gaming sites had forgotten GTA V existed until the recent gameplay trailer.

They need to answer one question

Is this a grand theft auto game ? Or is this a watered down gta game ? I get the feeling this game will be watered down as f*ck just look at franklin and Michael dozingoff.gif

Trevor is supposed to be a badass in the true sense of the word but I can see him being a pussy too.

Yes he blows things up in the trailer but i bet nobody is in the explosion. This game will be full of that kinda crap they will try and make it hard but keep it as safe as possible

Hmm, a meth addict that stomps severed feet down a toilet and wakes up in his underpants surrounded by dead bikers. This sh*t may as well be rated PG.

smile.gif That sounds good. I haven't read all the info. I do plan on buying and playing this game so i'm trying to avoid the news sites so the games still a surprise.

With that said I never got that vibe from the trailers. They make the game seem like a p.g teen movie. Maybe it's because the trailers focus more on that bitch Michael ? I hope you're right and this game doesn't have a ''p.g teen summer blockbuster movie'' feel but that's the vibe I get from the trailer.

Like I said you watch the trailers and it looks like a teen movie. IV was watered down but they made it feel gritty in the trailers.

Yelp shootouts,bank heists,affairs, and police chases sounds just like a teen movie.

Edit: I get the point you were attempting to make, I just completely disagree.

OMG use you're brain! Jesus Christ !!!!! COD has murder you tool ! Every game has murder. I swear theirs murder in the children's games my 8 year old nephew plays. You're so busy blindly worshipping you can't even think for yourself.

Vice city stories had the most evil criminals out of any gta which is ironic because it's the most underrated. You play RDR those criminals are meh. Gta iv great game one of my favorites but the main bosses ? weak as f*ck !!

Theirs more too making a great gta then allowing murder ! You need asshole criminals who make you hate them and give you a reason to kill them !

Look at sonny forelli, tenpenny, the mendez brothers those guys were hard as f*ck and you hated them. Gta iv's bosses were weak as f*ck. That guy in TLAD was a coward why were you scared of him ? Bulergrin was a pussy in TBOGT and don't even get me started on demetri and pegorino,

I hope you understand this a little clearer. You can shot people or zombies all you want that doesn't male a game '' Adult'' a good story with real enemies does !

It's a bunch of other little things too V just feels soft. Theirs nothing gritty about it ! Watch IV's first trailer for Christ sake that's how you set the tone for a grand theft auto game not this '' why do I move here kids poem bullsh*t'' with pretty graphics and '' beautiful girls'' get the f*ck out of here ! I want a game about criminals you feel me

First off, why spazz all of a sudden? Second, play the game first before calling it watered down. Third, where was I worshipping, I just said I disagreed. Sorry if my sarcasm was little too much for you. Fourth, who's to say V doesn't have those criminals you want so bad? Fifth, you bring up murder like it's the only thing to a story and the only thing I mentioned. (Trevor torturing a guy in his character trailer ring any bells?). Sixth, Your problem with V seems to be that the trailer was to colorful and the character was too soft spoken. So you want a typical loudmouth prick that spits on everything he walks by.

Let me tell you something, the most mellow, soft spoken, quietest guy could walk into a room full of Sonny Forelli's and walk out with their women and a jar full of nuts as a souvenir.

All badasses aren't made to be brash and cocky. The quietest in the room can turn out to be the most ruthless and evil mfer you will ever see.

So no I don't feel you, I see you but don't feel you.

Also, Iv was grey and gloomy to supposedly represent New York, so it's not surprising that V looks colorful and vibrant to represent sunny Southern California. So I don't get the graphics gripe either.

The marketing is there to persuade you to buy the game. So if you don't like the marketing, don't buy the game. Simple.

Pretty much what Deffpony said, Rockstar's marketing has succeeded, everyone is excited for this game. The only thing that is out of place is the fact that we don't have a website yet, but I'd be willing to bet that we get it within the next 2 weeks.

OP doesn't understand what marketing is.

It's not just Rockstar who's marketing the game. Almost every gamesite on this planet helps Rockstar marketing this game, and every gamer in the world waits for GTAV.

How is that bad marketing, bro? suicidal.gif

The game is selling itself mate. They marketed the sh*t out of MP3 because they had to.

Marketing costs money man, they know they don't need to do much for V to sell like crazy. I think the last 4 weeks before the 17th will be busy with info and updates.

So you only want people from this forum to buy game?
Even though gameplay video have close to 20millions views, Im pretty sure this doesn't mean 20millions sales. They will need to start market it more if they want more sales.
Maybe not next week, but after that they will need to start or they will fail.
