..is an insult to true GTA fans.

Hello.... Is there anybody out there who remembers San Andreas?

You know... the game that had the casino, house burglaries, nitrous oxide, muscle and weight gain, recruitable gang members that could do drive-bys with you, various properties to live in, destruction derbies, bars, restaurants, pool and REPLAYABILITY.

Ring any bells? Then why the f*ck have you given this garbage 10/10?

There is NOTHING innovative and new aside from the character switching system, it's lacking features that were even in GTA games 11 years ago.

Back in 2004, I imagined that by now we'd be able to customise our apartments, create our own gangs, have a story that dynamically changed throughout depending on our choices, be able to go in at least 10% of the buildings, destructible environments, a lot more methods of making money, real interaction with pedestrians that made them feel more human, multiple dialogue choices, a lot more properties to live in, and actually KEEP EVERYTHING THAT WAS IN SAN ANDREAS.

But good old George Lucas.. I mean.. Rockstar, got lazy in 2008, they stripped out a ton of content and thought they could fool people into loving a game almost purely on graphics. Well... turns out they did.

Imagine you had a wife for a few years, with the best personality, fun to be around, Michelin star level of cooking ability, amazing sense of humour, pornstar level in the bedroom; then one day you wake up and she looks like model.

She's never looked so good, but there's something missing.. She sucks at cooking but can still make toast, lost all her sense of humour but occasionally cracks a smile, and it's hard to get a conversation out of her, unless she wants to go bowling.

What the f*ck Rockstar, now almost every game developer has got lazy.
Let's just hope that Naughty Dog make an open world game soon.

EDIT: Please note I am talking about general gameplay, the story and acting was outstanding, I am not denying that GTAV is a good game, but I feel strongly that is a step back from what GTA could have been.

Tons of Hype + Tons of money on marketing = 10/10 for this. I'm not saying it's not a good game, but still lack things and have things worse than GTA:SA and GTA IV. A mix between the best of all GTA would be much more better. Some things on GTA V are just stupid.

IV And vice city are both better than san andreas so gta has not been on the downfall at all.

I was so excited for this game. I even went out and bought an xbox 360 just so i could play this game.

 

I totally agree with you. this game is the biggest disappointment since president bush. So many things they left out that could of easily been added.

Ok, do it. I could do the same with San Andreas and IV related to GTA V.

I was a bit salty about how much was stripped from Sand Andreas when IV came out. This GTA brought back some of the oldschool stuff and added new. So the game is not on a downward spiral. Only thing that I'm really bummed about missing from San Andreas is lack of Gang interaction. But there's always a chance of DLC that adds more interaction with gangs. The weight thing was kinda silly in San Andreas it was funny to make CJ a Fatass for a few minutes but meh,

 

 

If you want a game that never changes then there is Call of Duty.

I genuinely feel sorry for anyone who can't enjoy V. I for one, am having an absolute blast with this game. Every GTA just gets better than the last imo:

 

III - introduction of open world

 

Vice City - bright lights, bikes + helicopters, great setting and soundtrack

 

San Andreas - multiple cities, introduction of countryside, many activities

 

IV - great graphics, fun physics, great story and characters

 

V - huge map, and a mixture of elements from previous GTA's

Rockstar could give us all that back if they didn't spend so much time concentrating on giving us a beautiful map.

 

Would I rather have a couple more pointless interiors or a spectacular looking map with detail down to the last tree placement? I'll take the latter.

 

Anyway, you're overlooking the countless features from V that weren't in San Andreas.

I feel like it's missing something, but almost every game of the 360/PS3 era feels that way to me. I guess its a combination of games being watered down and a pure lack of interest on my part.

 

I'm already getting bored with GTA V, whereas I literally played and returned to San Andreas for about 4 years.

 

Edit - I don't think it's GTA that is heading downward, its our interests that are changing.

Before I read any further, define that for me. I have seen it plenty of times on this forum without anyone explaining what they mean.

The whole building muscle and eathing junk in San Andreas annoyed me, I'm glad there were cheats for that junk. I'm also glad Rockstar dropped that after SA. I only used the Casino a handfull of times so I don't miss that either..same goes with the recruitable gang members (I'm not into the whole gang banger gotta kill those other gang insert N word here because they wear different colors yo, thing) I used to customize alot of cars but I never used nitrous on them ( I do miss hydraulics though)
And I also miss the destruction derby stuff...
All in all you can't please everybody, no matter what they add or take away from the game there will always be people complaining about stuff.

Yeah, it's totally on a downward spiral. That's why it was the most sold game of all time.

Enough with the SA nostalgia.

Turn it off and return it to the store then dude, jeez. Why would you want a game that doesn't move on and just repeats the last game in a slightly new setting, you can play lame games like Fifa/CoD that bring out a slightly different game each year for the same price as GTA V that milk their loyal fools... I mean customers into believing they are playing a revolutionary new sim every 12 months

Nobody is saying its better or worse, we are saying that it has things that GTA V doesn't and some things that GTA V has better. Same with GTA IV related to GTA:SA and GTA V, and same with GTA V related to GTA IV and GTA:SA.

 

The thing is that Rockstar didn't make the perfect GTA yet.

You can live in the past all you want but don't be a prick to everyone that is enjoying the game, get a life and cry to yourself not others you attention seeking hoebag.
