So what if people don't like how the car handles. I personally love it. Look at some highway gameplay. How the cars on the opposite side sound when they pass you. It sounds REALISTIC. The car damage is fine in my opinion. It's just a little harder to do the damage unlike in GTA 4 where one small crash would dent your entire front. I've seen a viideo where a train wrecked the small sports car in GTA 5. That was enough to convince me that I was fine with that damage. I think it's just that people are used to the slowpace of GTA 4. I could give a sh*t.
The guns sound and LOOK awesome.
The characters are awesome
ect sh*t is so much I can't even post it all is awesome.
And the driving isn't even bad. When you're speeding down the road it looks just like that.
I care because it's a core aspect of the gameplay. I'm glad that there's more variety in things like boats and aircraft this time around, but dumbing down the car physics and damage pretty much makes more than one third of the game less fun for me. I liked doing crazy stunts and drifting, and it will probably feel a lot less rewarding to drive well in V compared to IV. It would be near the same as if Rockstar decided to give you infinite ammo and health from the start and without cheats.
