For me there is what me and my friends call "The Fortnight Anomaly".

A fortnight from now Total War: Rome 2 releases.
A fortnight from then GTA V releases.
A fortnight from then GTA Online releases.

We're through the looking glass here, people.

Nice topic icon14.gif
I remember back in the days of the debate on who was the protagonist due to the first trailer showing multiple shots of Franklin and Michael.
Time has flown incredibly with the amount of information we have about GTA V. So close guys, and the wait will be over.

I guess most people realized it was Los Santos when they saw they Vinewood sign. I realized it was Los Santos when I saw the skyline and noticed the US bank lol.

I honestly never have been following a release of a game like I've done with this game. This have been an amazing journey, especially here on GTAForums, although at times very upsetting with the very little pieces of info we got

I was definitely excited about this one because w/ all the feedback from the previous games, I figured R* was going to have a boat-load of things to implement and as we see more info released, it is apparent that it is as they say, their biggest game yet!
I was actually surprised to read yesterday on R*'s site (tho its really old news) how we can switch between characters on-the-fly. I just wonder how they implemented this where each will be doing something different when you *warp* between them. Like if you're using Franklin to cruise the street and switch to Trevor and find he is in *jail* then find Michael in the middle of a shootout ...

Silence. Depending on what type of person you are, it can the sound of peace or of despair. For GTA V fans I'd probably go with the latter. After the sudden surprise of both the announcement and the first trailer in the space of a week, we'd all been left wanting more, as there's only so many times you can go over 85 seconds of footage by every frame. We heard nothing whatsover about the game during these long hard months. A few snippets here and there, like Dan Houser openly admitting that GTA V will have a "very big map" and that the new crew system would also be coming to the game.

With fans hounding the Newswire with questions, Rockstar were forced to come out and say in February 2012 that they would be talking more about GTA V "in a few months time", and it wasn't until July that their promise came true.

The very first official screenshots release at the end of a Max Payne edition of Asked & Answered. They revealed no further details, apart from these screenshots and a little something that would delight fans: planes would be fully functional in GTA V.

Think back and share your thoughts and reactions for the very first time we saw still image of GTA V. Did the game look as you imagined?

Join us every day as we count down to Los Santos through the GTA V marketing campaign.

I thought the screens were amazing but anything they released at the time would have been amazing because it was so long since we had anything.
Looking at it now te screenshots were poor and im not talking about graphics, the screens show absolutly nothing and rockstar knew people would love them because after thefirst trailer they were acting like gta v doesnt exist!

The day the first trailer was released, I woke up.. Checked youtube for any skyrim news/videos.. On the front page.. GTAV...

I thought it was fake for sure.. clicked anyways. Once I realized it was legit.. I started jumping around the room laughing and cheering in very crazed manner. When I saw it was back in San andreas.. I was totally losing my sh*t. My gf was telling me to calm down and was probably actually concerned for my mental health. I watched it over and over, Trying to explain to her SAN AN HD! SAN AN HD! She didn't understand.

I tried not to get hyped up.. I tried to put it out of my mind, and was mostly successful. Trailer 2 pulled me back in.. and with every passing week my hype has gotten worse and worse.. The GTAO reveal has me even more excited. I think I will finally be playing multi again, after years of no fun online gaming.. THIS will be EPIC.

Now it is the home stretch. I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. But it is like the last 10 minutes of school, staring at the clock.. Making each minute seem sooo much longer.

This made me realize the trailer was pre-rendered because of the low quality of vegetation and palm trees in the second image.

Therefore, no, it didn't live up to my prospects. But was exhilarated by the fact that it was the first info given after a long gap of 7-8 Months.

The thing that impressed me most about these was the sky and colours. Los Santos just looked so much more brighter and warmer than Liberty City. Sure, the graphics didn't look as smooth as maybe we'd hoped, but personally I wasn't that bothered, the sprawling downtown area behind the helicopter really got me hyped.
