did i miss anything? heaps of stuff to do, close to the level of san andreas.

Close to the level of San Andreas? 
Sea Races - They are ok but very easy

moto cross races - They are ok but very easy

Hidden underwater stuff - Underwater is boring

collectible things - Ok another chore

Hunting - Seems ok but RDR was way better 

Street Races - Oh wow more races -_- also very easy

Bounty Hunting - Fun

Assassin missions - Fun 

Property to buy - Need more money then what the game gives you

Character customization - Could of been better

Vehicle customization - Could of been better

Friend activities - Oh boy not this sh*t again

Shooting Range - Fun with new controls but very easy

Darts - Had enough of that sh*t in IV

Golf - Fun for a while but gets boring FAST

Tennis - Fun for a while but gets boring FAST

Movies - This is a video game, I want to play not WATCH

TV - This is a video game, I want to play not WATCH

Cult Missions - Ok

Internet - This is a video game, I want to play not READ

Strangers and freaks missions - They are fun

Plane trail mission (  stunt Plane CE and SE ) - They are ok

Replaying missions to get gold - Isn't my thing

Yoga - This is a video game not yoga class

triathlons - They are fun but not many of them

robbing stores - No point when you beat the game. 

Strip clubs - Again this is a video game not porn

flight school - ok to learn how to fly

 

Not even half the sh*t is fun that you made in the post. GTA SA still is king of GTA with content in their game. 

 

Why can't we go in the casino? That's like the Roller coaster of IV. Everyone wanted to ride it but it was only there for show. I hope there's a DLC that adds the casino as a enter able place. 

 

you don't get it, do you.

OP makes a bold statement saying "the sandbox is 'empty' and there's nothing to do". therein lies the motive behind my post.

what you're saying is subjective and irrelevant to my point. i wasn't out to compare games qualitatively, nor was i belittling your precious san andreas.

f*ck off.

 

I proved you wrong and half of the sh*t is the same repetitive sh*t. Only a few good side missions that are fun. Even attempting to compare these poor activities to GTA SA makes you seem like a V fanboy. The game had 5.5 years in development time. GTA SA had 2 years. They had way more then double the amount of time to develop GTA and still they can't beat San Andreas in content?

Jesus f*cking crist in 5 years i necer finished gta IVs story because it sucked. I have played GTA V for about 100 hours now and have beat the story twice and im still not 100 % and still so many things i havnt done or seen yet. Wtf is wrong with you people.

 

It's called an opinion, and it's possible to criticise certain areas while still liking others. The story is good and mucking around is much more fun than IV but there are areas that didn't receive the attention they needed to for the type of game they wanted to develop.

I'm bored playing this as of today. I've done all the main missions, and stranger missions & own all the properties but there's just nothing to do anymore. Flight school and shooting range were the only fun activities. Sure the map's big, but there's nothing to explore without any interiors. Shootouts are only good in interiors, and as I said, there's almost none. You can't do parkour because some dumbass at R* decided to make your character faceplant against every wall instead of hanging onto ledges. Random events and collectibles are more of a chore than anything. The sports are sh*t, if I wanted to play golf or tennis I'd do it in real life, or at least in a proper sports videogame. Big letdown this game. They took out all the fun stuff from SA, RDR and even IV.

After 5 years, I can still play GTA IV and still have fun in it. Why? Because I just do random stuff, make up stories for myself as I go along. And once I'm done with GTA V's story missions, I can make better adventures for myself because now I have a more diverse area to explore and there's more vehicles/weapons to use. It's not fun if you just rush through things and play the game for the sake of finishing it. You have to take your time, enjoy the little details and what-not. It's not hard to enjoy a game for months upon months if you use your imagination, and that's not something hard to do in a GTA game. 

Agreed!

I'm not bored yet, been through the game once already and just started another play through yesterday. I did find myself running over the dockworkers three times in a row when scouting the port as I couldn't bring myself to deliver those two containers again..

I do agree that there's something missing from the single player though, the fun I had flying an ambulance around that little town in SA to eventually get a 50% health boost from level 12. This is what I miss most, the way you could get special effects by completing certain missions (fun ones too like the vigilante heli hehe).

The 10% discount for passing all the shooting range challenges is OK but not really that helpful once you're past the early stages of the story. I'm not one for 100% completion or collectables any more, but damn did i get all the hidden package guides back in the day knowing every ten you get a new weapon appearing at safehouses!.. If the reward in SA had been similar to the space docker.. I wouldn't have bothered at all.

didnt you dumbasses know that crews from max payne 3 carry over? whats wrong with real people as opposition gangs? arent you good enough to beat people? GTA online is supposed to be almost like RDR multiplayer. but with new content and not just singleplayer missions. in GTA Online if you are in a rolling shootout on the main highway against police and other crew members are racing the opposite way you will be in each others games. MP3 crew has 151k members. enjoy the mass multiplayer Role Playing Game that fans have wanted for years

 all this was know prior to release and you still didnt change your order.

totally agree, after completing the mainstory i felt very lonely with nothing to do...  so i started again, not rushing it... freeroaming and doing sh*t is so much more fun when u are still midgame...    i think its the lack of other cities aswell.

 

on the other hand, multiplayer will totally fill out the gap and will feel bigger than the singleplayer, for sure!   what else would they have done the last 5 years?

It seems to me like they where aiming for a gang theme with franklin because in the early missions it starts off like it did in GTA SA, gangbanging and killing ballas ect but rather quickly moves away from it, and focuses on other things like michael, and i have to admit he is the most boring character ever, a boring fat slob that has boring missions, I mean why did they add all these different gangs if you cant do anything like gang wars? R* must of just said 'yeah let's not add in gang wars but all all the gangs roaming around the streets' i mean you cant even get the grove street gangs to follow you, you even hear them saying 'cant wait to roll on some balla fools'. Driving around the city gets boring after a while, the races are way too easy because the ai is not agressive enough. theres 3 triathlon races with no point what so ever in repeating and half a dozen off road races.

 

It really seems like an empty game once the story is finished and that they have scrapped a lot of single player content and instead focused on the Multiplayer. im going to be honest i cant stand multiplayer gta, it has never been fun at all and it is full of kids and griefers, these 500 missions they are insisting the game has are probablys scrapped single player content and are simply go here, kill that,drive there.

Matter on perspective on Michael, I found when concerning the story Michael the most interesting one, especially his family missions. Gang wars have no point being in the game, it doesn't follow the story at all, they were not aiming a gang based game CLEARLY, Franklin just wants to get away from the "hood", and every mission with Lamar he mentions that a number of times, he has no interest in taking over the gangs, he wants to earn real money. Also why would you recruit grove street gang members or the Families, Franklin is not part of that gang, nor Trevor or Michael, all Franklin does even with Lamar is trying to earn money, and always getting caught by trigger-happy gang members. Want gang related story and activities play GTA: San Andreas, where 90's gang life is portrayed at it's best. GTA V is all about the pursuit of the mighty dollar, not gangbanging.

I usually play games like that, at first go I rush through everything, have no patience, but every good game I do multiple playthroughs, on the second and third and so on... I take my time, do all the side activities, hang out with people, explore the in-game internet, TV shows, radio stations all other non-gameplay related activities, explore more of the world, just get myself immersed as much as possible, and I find it to be more interesting, instead of rushing through the story and then partaking the side activities, it's just much more interesting to do side stuff, when you still have story missions etc.

Well, unlike Skyrim were there is side missions everywhere, this game does not really have that much. I did enjoy the storyline quite alot but for sucha a huge world you would espect hundreds of missions but of course they save that for GTAO, hopefully they keep me enterteined, if not back to Diablo 3.

agreed with op. moreover, police pressure is too heavy. you can't run over ONE pedestrian in the forest because you get one star and chased from nowhereland

this post is funny to me.

 

i've been playing it a 5-10 hours a week. most of the time just messing about. i've hardly done any missions.

 

most people who are "bored of it" rushed through it. and not enjoying the finer details. and there are A LOT of details in the game.

 

fact: i'll be playing this on and off for the next few years.

You know I'm interested to see what make SA activities more fun. Why don't you list them?

Most of SA's activities were from GTA III and VC as well as stupid, boring sh*t like quarry, trucking, pimping, courier missions etc.

I find it amazing how you treat SA as a god among video games in these sort of threads, but don't have the balls to list what you think is fun about it and sh*t on everyone else who finds something good about GTA V.

For me, it's the map design they chose. The world looks great, fantastic even. But the map seems small, and I'd like more cities, at least more established communities... like I feel no need to go and visit that small town up north, because theres nothing... disappointing in the map design... I mean I'll play online, that'll be a new experience, main reason I preordered... playing with friends will keep things excited, but SP gets boring, I'm %66 and I feel like I'm playing GTA IV, just sludging through the missions, dont wanna do the side activities until online, I like them, but boring offline...

 

...I haven't played because of the map design.

You poor fool, it's all opinion, whether you like hanging out with GTA friends, or like playing darts, or like exploring the ocean, IT'S NOT FACT, don't present as such and in such a poor manner. I like hanging out in GTA with friends, in IV it got annoying because they always call you up, but, it is interesting to see what characters have to say or comment on recent things, the mini games are rather good, I love darts in IV.

Also, in your comment you just desperatively try to take a sh*t on V, "TV I want to play not watch" I mean the f*ck is that? It's the same as if to say Music? I'm here to play not to listen to some music. The cinema, TV all of this adds to the world, and it's interesting to see what sort of material has Rockstar produced here, and there is a lot, among TV movies, all sorts of activities, in-game internet etc. There is plenty for those who wish to engage themselves into the world of the new Los Sanots, those who rush and only care about story, sure they got through the game and now have nothing to do, and fair to them.

Furthermore, it's interesting how you defend san andreas so much, you exaggerate way too much friend, maybe it's nostalgic memories of how much more fun was to play the game AT THAT TIME. Play San Andreas now, and see how interesting will you find these, side activities, which a good number of them are copy and paste with few exceptions, trucker, ambulance, taxi, fire, courier, even vigilante missions are the pretty much the same, drive there, pick up/shoot/put out fire kind of thing, and the the next target and the next and the next. The few that are interesting are, robberies, gang wars, schools, casinos, valet parking, and maybe car delivery. (I'm sure I'm missing a few activities), GTAV has lesser number of activities but is able to rather keep these more interesting different and well developed, tennis, golf, triathlons, random encounters, parachuting, movies/TV, bounties, hunting, assassinations, all are well developed, whether YOU enjoy it or not is a different matter though.

San Andreas is no longer the king of GTA, just as space invaders or tetris are no longer king of gaming they were long time ago, and I'm sure play SA now, and the magic that is in your mind and memory will be gone, I know, I've completed it recently, got through the story, finished gang wars, couple of schools and that's it really, now I turn it on now and again just to fly around, try landing on buildings with Dodo and stuff. And I remember I used to spend hours upon hours of just driving or diving or swimming or flying around the cities and modding cars and all that stuff, now, it's just not attractive anymore.

Also, in your comment you just desperatively try to take a sh*t on V, "TV I want to play not watch" I mean the f*ck is that? It's the same as if to say Music? I'm here to play not to listen to some music. The cinema, TV all of this adds to the world, and it's interesting to see what sort of material has Rockstar produced here, and there is a lot, among TV movies, all sorts of activities, in-game internet etc. There is plenty for those who wish to engage themselves into the world of the new Los Sanots, those who rush and only care about story, sure they got through the game and now have nothing to do, and fair to them.

Furthermore, it's interesting how you defend san andreas so much, you exaggerate way too much friend, maybe it's nostalgic memories of how much more fun was to play the game AT THAT TIME. Play San Andreas now, and see how interesting will you find these, side activities, which a good number of them are copy and paste with few exceptions, trucker, ambulance, taxi, fire, courier, even vigilante missions are the pretty much the same, drive there, pick up/shoot/put out fire kind of thing, and the the next target and the next and the next. The few that are interesting are, robberies, gang wars, schools, casinos, valet parking, and maybe car delivery. (I'm sure I'm missing a few activities), GTAV has lesser number of activities but is able to rather keep these more interesting different and well developed, tennis, golf, triathlons, random encounters, parachuting, movies/TV, bounties, hunting, assassinations, all are well developed, whether YOU enjoy it or not is a different matter though.

San Andreas is no longer the king of GTA, just as space invaders or tetris are no longer king of gaming they were long time ago, and I'm sure play SA now, and the magic that is in your mind and memory will be gone, I know, I've completed it recently, got through the story, finished gang wars, couple of schools and that's it really, now I turn it on now and again just to fly around, try landing on buildings with Dodo and stuff. And I remember I used to spend hours upon hours of just driving or diving or swimming or flying around the cities and modding cars and all that stuff, now, it's just not attractive anymore.

Well, just as you say his post is based on opinions, so is yours, specifically regarding which game is king.

Violence in games isn't fun for me when there's no context. When the only price is a maximum of $5000 and 6 hours of in-game time, it's like playing chess by yourself.

when i completed the game i expected some sort of missions to open up or gang hideouts to dot the map, but nothing.. 

 

Why on earth would you expect something like that when thats never happened in GTA before, and never even rumored? Its your own fault.

Close to the level of San Andreas? 
Sea Races - They are ok but very easy

moto cross races - They are ok but very easy
Hidden underwater stuff - Underwater is boring
collectible things - Ok another chore
Hunting - Seems ok but RDR was way better 
Street Races - Oh wow more races -_- also very easy
Bounty Hunting - Fun
Assassin missions - Fun 
Property to buy - Need more money then what the game gives you
Character customization - Could of been better
Vehicle customization - Could of been better
Friend activities - Oh boy not this sh*t again
Shooting Range - Fun with new controls but very easy
Darts - Had enough of that sh*t in IV
Golf - Fun for a while but gets boring FAST
Tennis - Fun for a while but gets boring FAST
Movies - This is a video game, I want to play not WATCH
TV - This is a video game, I want to play not WATCH
Cult Missions - Ok
Internet - This is a video game, I want to play not READ
Strangers and freaks missions - They are fun
Plane trail mission (  stunt Plane CE and SE ) - They are ok
Replaying missions to get gold - Isn't my thing
Yoga - This is a video game not yoga class
triathlons - They are fun but not many of them
robbing stores - No point when you beat the game. 
Strip clubs - Again this is a video game not porn
flight school - ok to learn how to fly
 
Not even half the sh*t is fun that you made in the post. GTA SA still is king of GTA with content in their game. 
 
Why can't we go in the casino? That's like the Roller coaster of IV. Everyone wanted to ride it but it was only there for show. I hope there's a DLC that adds the casino as a enter able place. 
 
you don't get it, do you.
OP makes a bold statement saying "the sandbox is 'empty' and there's nothing to do". therein lies the motive behind my post.
what you're saying is subjective and irrelevant to my point. i wasn't out to compare games qualitatively, nor was i belittling your precious san andreas.
f*ck off.
 
I proved you wrong and half of the sh*t is the same repetitive sh*t. Only a few good side missions that are fun. Even attempting to compare these poor activities to GTA SA makes you seem like a V fanboy. The game had 5.5 years in development time. GTA SA had 2 years. They had way more then double the amount of time to develop GTA and still they can't beat San Andreas in content?

Well, just as you say his post is based on opinions, so is yours, specifically regarding which game is king.

 

Yes my post at points is opinion, at points it's fact. The game has plenty of well developed activities to take part in - fact. Whether some individual likes or not - opinion. And my statement the King of GTA being V, is well sort of opinion, because if you put a guy who hasn't played any GTA, and give V or SA, he will go for V, because it is more finished, higher quality, higher detail etc. etc. pick a guy who played let's tetris in his childhood, and really loved it, and for him it will be the best game, just because it's this game that is connected to his childhood, and as we know in childhood things appear much more than sometimes they turn out to be, and at the end of the day, he will always be biased with this game, so the actual quality of the game is quite irrelevant in this instance, and GTA:SA was a game for many teenagers..

I just got 100% and I'm closer to the REAL 100% than most people. I've been bored of this game. Driving sucks and really after you beat a GTA game that's all there's left to do (well that and kill cops).

Agreed. Although my favourite GTA  is GTA IV I must admit I played it the other day and all the advancement made in GTA V did make it kind of hard to go back to. Still love it however.

 

I'd say there's reasonably high chance he hasn't even played SA since playing GTA V and yeah he does tend to exaggerate it, but to be fair he's not the only one.

.

Most of what's in SA is fairly basic and does get repetitive after a while. I've never been a big fan of taxi, paramedic, firefighter, quarry, trucking missions etc. They're just not that fun to me.

 

I completed all of GTA IV's side missions even though there were less, but I really enjoyed them as they didn't seem to be that repetitive and same for GTA V. I like side missions that fit in with the tone and style of the game. Something GTA IV and GTA V do very well and SA doesn't IMO.

I agree with the OP. While when you get down to the technical aspects of the game yes there is a lot to do like this guy mentioned.

 

Have you done all the side mission like freak and stranger?  Have you done all the racing including offroad trucks, atv, and triathlon.  Have you done parachuting?  Have you found all pieces to the UFO and underwater secret and discovery?  Have you stole a tank and put in into a large plane and drop it in midair while your still in the tank?  Have you done all the rampage mission, all the random encounter, all the taxi vigilantes mission? Have you stolen a dune buggy and drive off road (it fun)?  Have you done some of the hunting?  Have you kidnap people and give it to the cultist above the mountain?  Have you found a dinghy and use the scuba diving suit to explore the ocean?  Have you done a gang shootout at the grove?

 

But some of these activities he mentioned are pointless and irrelevant. For example scuba diving and parachuting... really? its pretty to look at and do here and there but not "oh sh*t! this is just so fun! I could do this all hours of the night" It gets redundant and boring at least IMO and im sure plenty will agree. 

 

I understand what your saying carnotaurus but those are things that will eventually just be burnt out after awhile. 

 

Even if they added a whole drug dealing operation in the game like Chinatown Wars and that could of added a lot of fun. Trying to transport, export, make deals, deal with people who try to cross you etc. Actually have to use your brain to make money which makes for a more challenging game that will keep you playing. 

 

Bottom Line: GTA 5 is a great game. I love it and don't regret buying it, but there also were a lot of things that should of been in there then others. The game had a great deal of potential to have more done to it.  But don't worry OP your not the only one. I'm pretty bored myself I know online is where all the best things are at. If only R* could get these servers going.

Just want to clarify the whole "Franklins in a gang" thing... You said you finished the story right? How f*cking stupid would that be if Franklin spent the entire story mode talking about how he wanted to get out of that life.... Just to go back and try to take it over. Doesn't make sense to me man sorry.

edit: I do wish you could expand Trevor Philips industries though.. That would be pretty fun.

Yeah like robbing places was any better than doing illegal sh*t in the hood. Thats where R* got a little ass backwards in their storyline. Wanting to get out the gang life would mean bettering him self and doing legitimate business. The way I look at Franklins situation is he just wants to make good money no matter how he has to get it gang life or not. Clearly being with a set of more organized people and jobs was going to land him more money so thats where he went. So I don't buy that crap about wanting to get out of the gang life.
