How many of you remember the first few weeks when GTA 4 came out? Can't say it was this bad but there were many things players cried and concerned over. Even today and many years after the game was released players pointed out the flaws.
Many fans didn't soo much care for the more realistic approach of the game. Personally I did, it was a nice change to have a more serious story. People complained that the driving had changed too much from previous games.
Fast forward to today and many of these features have been addressed by Rockstar. The game appears to be a bit more silly and less realistic and take itself a little less seriously (Though it seems we can expect to still get a halfway serious story) but some of the gameplay and mechanics have changed. For many on here wasn't GTA SA the epitome of the series greatness?
At the end of the day, this is still just a game and can we all not just accept it for what it is and play it and have fun. Its clear that this company put a ton of work into this game, far more than many other companies will go. The amount of detail and content in it is staggering. Yet many of you are nitpicking at certain things and complaining when you have not even played the game.
Sort of a slap in the face to all those who put in tons of work to bring you something that everyone would enjoy. But I guess you cant please everyone....there are many other simulators and games out there you can enjoy, but there really is only one Grand Theft Auto Series.
