Shut the f*ck up with this bullsh*t already. People have personal arguments on this forum all the time. If you don't like it, find another GTA5 msb.

Not the brightest idea to tell a moderator to shut the f*ck up kid. You're lucky I haven't strung you up by your balls and booted your ass out.

 

You wont be so lucky next time.

Hahaha, way to compensate for a small penis, "kid".

 

"I'm a moderator on a relatively small message board, FEAR MY WRATH!". This forum is ridiculous. Any time someone says something another person doesn't like, the "you must be too young to understand how much smarter than you I am" argument comes out. Its the cheapest, lamest cop out around. The way people used to be like "you're Hitler, you're a nazi, etc.", now its "you're a child, you're a kiddie, you're younger than me (even though I have no way of knowing how old you actually are) and that makes me superior". How do people using this kind of obvious, baseless and ultimately irrelevant (either someone is besting you in an argument or they aren't, age shouldn't even factor in) kind of argument is a joke.

Jeez. Get over it already. All I said was to take it to PM and then you respond telling me to shut f*ck up and now saying I have a small penis?

If you find this forum ridiculous use your own advice and find another one.

I hope you enjoyed your pass by here because it seems you won't be hanging around for long pal. I admit, I quite enjoy watching senseless fools insulting and getting on the nerves of moderators (its like watching a fat kid flipping off a T-Rex) but please, do yourself a favor and quit with the attitude. You won't gain respect from no-one with it.

So um... has anyone gone back and compared the driving to GTA SA?

To me they seem to be very similiar in a lot of ways, with the exception that the cars in V have a more weighty feel to them compared to SA. Sure, the driving in V feels more aided here and there with landing jumps and going over bumps but in general I think they are like brothers to each other. It's like... SA's handling with the complexity from IV with a little simplifaction here and there.

 

After treating V's driving more like SA it felt a lot better somehow. I guess it's knowing the intention that makes it easier to accept or something. Your thoughts on this?

I gotta say I waaaaay prefer the handling on GTA V. Makes driving much more fun and less of a chore. I can understand why people appreciated IV's more realistic handling but it's not the kinda thing I really want when playing GTA.

 

Different strokes for different folks though!

Yeah I was playing SA this week and I noticed the exact thing: V's cars have more weight but essentially the handling is just as arcade-y. Makes for a more enjoyable game I find.

Yeah I'll admit I've experienced physics worse than V's... but playing V after IV makes the driving feel so dumbed down. :/

The extent of the physics dumbness can change from car to car. I hate driving the Entity XF because it feels like steering a go-kart with a rocket in its rear end, but I quite enjoy the Rapid GT, feels more .. natural ? Anyway, what's worse is that SR3 is actually an IMPROVEMENT over SR2. My nose is bleeding, how low can you get ?!

Well I've had the game for a week and honestly I like the driving. This is coming from someone who loved everything about IV. V's driving is different but still fun. It could be improved in some aspects but it's not a major problem to me as some other issues I have with the game, namely the police wanted system and the damage model inconsistencies. I know I've criticized the driving in this game previously but that was before I was able to actually play the game. I was basing my judgement based off gameplay vids, so I take that back.

I saw gameplay videos before I got V and was worried. Well when I got the game, I loved the driving for 4 weeks... then I got bored and started to notice it's flaws and how utterly unsophisticated it had begun to feel. That was just me though.

Instead of being able to drive over every item in the world, though, most of the cars in V struggle to drive over a slight curb.

Honestly, the biggest issues I have with it are lack of body roll and the awful damage system. One of my favorite things to do in IV was just get into the most spectacular crashes possible. I don't understand how they could go from that to something in some ways even worse than III's damage system.

 

That and jumps were so much more fun because cars actually had suspensions that would audibly and visibly bottom out upon landing. Now it's like taking an RC car off a jump. In fact, the whole experience is like driving an RC car because they have no weight or momentum.

To me, the lack of a suspension nor proper weight is what f*cks everything up when it comes to the driving.

I remember R* saying "we haven't made an arcade racer" and "we've added more physics onto them now"..

Maybe it was all just a dream.

I think they said that first quote. Boy was that a lie. And one of their quotes didn't work for me, it went something like: "We've made sure GTA V offers the best driving experience ever in a GTA" Why do I still think IV holds that medal still?

Yeah, it was also: "We've made the driving feel a bit more like a racing game." :/

 

And has anyone else noticed how "week" tractors are? I mean, the Fieldmaster can barely drive up an even slightly steep road or hill. Now, I've only had a bit of experience with tractors IRL, but I'm pretty sure they're "strong" vehicles and can handle all kinds of tough conditions and terrains.

Im sure I remember a quote saying: ''We just made a couple of tweaks to GTA IV's driving.''

lol... of course Rockstar, of course.

With the graphics and driving in IV being of such a lower caliber I don't see how you can think V is dumbed down that's insane IV feels like vice city to me outdated and not even comparible to V in any way.

The driving was dumbed down, not the entire game.

The driving of IV is such a low caliber. No offense but bitch do you drive? :lol: V's driving is the one of such low caliber. And nobody is speaking graphics in this thread so what are you on about? Grow up, stop double posting, and stop talking sh*t about the mods before I report you and you can end up banned like iPronish*t-or-whatever should.

(joking, don't take what i've typed below seriously)

 

oh, so you're lenient with him but not me? THAT'S BULLsh*t! remember when i said johnny is a better protag than niko on "Is Michael Townley the best GTA Protagonist ever?" thread? you banned me >:(

the link to our conversation: http://gtaforums.com...ist-ever/page-2

 
SonOfLiberty: no one and I mean no one is as great as the legendary Niko Bellic. Not Tommy, not CJ, not Claude, not  Trevor etc. Anyone who disagrees will get a ban stick up the ass. 
Me: niko may be the strongest, but johnny is still a better character

 

 

then you banned me for 4 weeks. screw you >:(
