I am quite a good player but I like to have fun while playing. Constantly sliding all over the place is not my idea of fun.
yeah you really seem like "quite the good player". me personally, have never experienced "sliding all over the place" while playing IV. and what exactly is complex about the driving in it? the fact that the cars have more realistic momentum, so you simply have to use half a brain cell to make a proper turn according to how fast your going? or is it the aspect of ACTUALLY having to utilize the brakes on IV? i rarely use the brakes on V due to the fact that if i let off the gas, the game slows me down drastically. combine that with the ultra f*cking sensitive turning, and i can whip through traffic like i'm goddamn speed racer on heroin. no one here wants a "super realistic driving simulator", we just wanted a progression of what IV did to set itself apart from the other sandbox games. the major, and even minor details with the driving physics that are entirely absent in V, is just flat out odd. and don't even get me started on the motorcycle physics. they are just an abomination. aside from all of the negative things, i still enjoy this game. its still a solid gta title, obviously. but i guess i just expected them to build upon the very aspects that made IV such a great game.
