Although some of us may have expected more or not wanted anything removed (from previous versions). I gotta say GTAV is the gift that keeps on giving in a comedic sense.So i thought maybe a thread for some GTA Appreciation is in order. Basically just a place to compile all the cool sh*t. Iv not played GTAV as far on in as a lot of you seem to be but i tend to exhaust all my interactions and re-do missions until i have them Gold before i move onto the next stage. But heres a few things that im appreciating thus far (and so far iv only got as far as buying the airstrip and completing the first few Trevor missions)....
Radio: Plenty people seem to be saying the soundtrack aint as good as previous.I disagree. As always the tunes grow on you with repetition Im digging all the radio stations. Im really loving the fact that an apt tune comes on seemingly co-incidentally. For example,when i leave the home of the stripper (who i suspect is a man)and get in my ride then the song that comes on is "skeletons in your closet" and the lyrics were too funny.In fact this pretty much made me thin it was a dude.Then the text msg i got saying "she" wanted to go on top next time made me suspect too.Iv not been back for second helpings thus far lol.
TV/Movies: As always the tv channels are great and i can spend ages just sitting watching them as i have a smoke and a beer. The cinema is great,i say watching the film about the British Robot from the Sarcasm Factory truly appreciating the greatness of the GTA animation & dialogue team.
WEED: I love the fact GTA has recognized that 'stoners' are their best customers and biggest fans.The knowing nods from Rockstar in the game are great. The Alien and other mini games that arise via the smoking of weed are great as is the fact you can buy and own MMJ dispensaries etc.
Storyline: Best yet. Love the way they have developed and written these characters and the plot line to GTAV. Top Job by Rockstar! Also like the fact that decision we make affect the way the storyline progresses.
Cars/Customization: As usual the customization and the cars are gnarly.Top Drawer! The comet is my fav car once its fully customized to my liking,it handles better than any car in the game (for me anyways). I love the fact that favourites like the the Blista Compact have been given a new lease of life too. All in all id say theres NOTHING they could do to improve the cars..... although theres a few customization options they could still add or improve but thats me just being moany!
Special Abilities: Love the fact they have given special abilites such as Trevors limited damage Rage ability or Franklins driving slow mo. I would like Rockstar to expand on this in future games.
Im not as far into the game as most so im hoping for some new surprises along the way. But whats some of the cool things other people like thats not necessarily crucial to the gameplay?Cheers
