When I was playing as Michael, I got into trouble with the cops outside a hospital and got five stars almost instantaneously after wreaking havok with a minimum and assault rifle. While I'm taking cover behind a police car, I see many guys coming for me in cars getting out. Two got out of a car that stopped right in front of me and shot at me. I shot one of them and that cop lies there dead / dying.

I see the second cop pick him up by the shoulders and drag him to cover while I'm blasting other cops. I had no idea the cops were able to do that with fallen comrades in this game, probably because I kill too many in short time. I'm impressed with this.

I eventually ended the second cop though.

What blew my mind was the fact there was no realistic steak. Game returned back to Gamestop.

I was hoping V had the awesome purple skies from SA. And it did! But then, after the first week of playing, I thought... "Wtf? every night is f*ckin' purple! ...it needs more variety". Then over the next two weeks playing I saw red sunsets, dark blue, greyish stormy skies, orange smog, all sorts of cloud formations, etc... I love the sky detail.

How there are a reasonable number of accessible buildings in missions that are completely locked, with no way of entering them after the story.

How there are a few very detailed interiors of banks that aren't active nor involved in any mission. 

How a basic feature such as robbing convenience stores only is possible in GTA Online.

How there is property to buy in GTA Online but not in GTA V singeplayer.

How perks like for example calling in merryweather support are exclusive to GTA Online.

 

I really doubt Merryweather would want to help Mike, Trevor or Franklin. and you can rob stores in single player

Being able to ragdoll on command in single player by jumping and pushing circle.

 

My mind was blown for a second time when I played GTA online and this mechanic was not present. If I can't ragdoll into my friends I don't want to live on this cloud server anymore.

During an air race, my friend ran into my rudder and broke it off completely.  I was without yaw control for the rest of the race

gotta say tonight I found one while playing online, made it back to my garage after a long bike ride, my character was standing next to the bike... I heard some weird ticking from my speakers, as i went to investigate my character moved when i set the controller down... so i picked it back up and moved her around, sure enough it was the engine ticking down.

Playing as Micheal I was driving a Jetmax from the alamo sea to the ocean and as I was going by the beach I saw two people walking on the beach and a dog running ahead of them. It was just one of those amazing little detailed moments.

i just realized you can shoot chops turdpile....you get a special crap-spray animation and it moves each time you shoot it (perfect for redecorating)

 

dunno if anyone else ever noticed this, but you can sometimes catch a cabdriver off-duty...same guy you get most of the time and he talks on his phone about how bad the traffic was and then about how he's about to go postal (and then follows up with a verbal note to any government agency listening in that hes just kidding etc etc)

 

and also, i'm sure everyone has seen this, but your characters phones are very highly detailed and look/work just like the controls that appear on your tv screen...check it out at night if you never noticed

LITTLE THINGS THAT HAVE BLOWN MY MIND :

1.) No Gang Wars / Turf Wars

2.) No Recruiting

3.) No Safehouse Purchasing / Safe House Properties

4.) No Casinos/ No Gambling / No Nothing.. Just a stimulated Stock Exchange ( not needed)

The attention to detail in the game. The sheer amount of traffic on freeway for instance is another good one. Even though all the time is a rush hour. Still jammed at 4am.

I would prefer the same attention to detail in a smaller world which might enable chance for additional details. E.g being able to enter houses in open play e.g burglarised . I loved the stealth loc mansion mission in San Andreas.

Nearly everything blows my mind in this game.The atmosphere is gigantic and i don't think any other game development team can do what R* did.

One day, i decided to just walk down the streets to listen to the phone calls from the people, or the random discussions.Then, i wanted to move to the other side of the street and got hit by a car.It was a big crash, i fall like 3-4 meters and this driver said "Oh sh*t" or something like that.Then a NPC called the police and the same dude who drove me over got chased by the police haha.That was awesome.I don't know what happened to him, probably he got shot down like we know the LSPD.This was one of the craziest things i saw in a video game.The AI LIVES on his own.Such a masterpiece,

If you bail out of a helicopter while hanging out with one or both of the other protagonists, they'll actually parachute down with you.

Can I get the Boeing 747 without getting like 3 stars for entering the airport?

Buy a Hangar for Micheal or Franklin, once you buy one for a character, said character won't receive a wanted level for entering the airport.

To much to mention

  • As mentioned, just the sheer detail, you can tell just by looking at the roads and the traffic lights that every part of the map was hand crafted, not just copying and pasting objects.
  • Just how alive the world feels, the AI is perfect and just free roaming has never been this much fun. Trucks spawn with trailers on the highways and the Bus actually spawns commonly like buses should now, it's about time, that and they actually have passengers.
  • Even things like the turbulence when flying a plane, it really made the flying feel better, compared to San Andreas where the planes just floated off the runway.
  • Rockstars humor doesn't destroy the immersion, just adds fun, one of my favorites was Air EMU and that said airline was actually involved in a crash(for anyone who doesn't know, emu's are Australia birds which can't fly).

I just realized that Trevor's bullets are seven times stronger than the others.

I only managed to destroy a tank with a minigun with Franklin, but with Trevor? I destroyed endless tanks using the Combat Shotgun! (Bang Bang! and Invincibility for 5 Minutes cheats on)

another that tanks' shots can destroy other Al tanks! :lol: if one Al-controlled tank fired (by mistake or missed) on another Al-controlled tank, it'll destroyed.

that can also happen when the enter/steal the tank animation is playing. a huge chance of another tank to fire at you, hitting the tank you're trying to get. if close enough, the tank you're trying to get will blow! (:wtf:)
