I've loved every GTA game since the first one and each one has brought something new other the others, even in the PS2 era. GTA 3 just amazed me as it was an open world in 3D, VC amazed me with the setting and the music and SA amazed me with the size and more importantly the online mods. GTA 4 came out and amazed me because it was the first HD GTA, had a great story, the physics were amazing etc etc...
GTA V however just bores me, I'm 17 hours in and I'm done, though tbh I was done 10 hours ago. I bought the game on the launch day and I've struggled to want to play it. My friends reflect my opinion, we were all so excited and none of them played after day 2 and none of us have any plans to return for the online... they missed the boat for that. It's really the first GTA that hasn't done anything new or amazing...
- The driving physics suck over 4.
- Car damage sucks
- Take too much damage
- The world is boring, feels generic
- lack of interiors (This game has less interiors and things to do than 4)
- The story sucks
- The characters suck
- Boring missions
I can come up with so many faults in the game that make me not like it over 4 or previous games and I'm just bored with the rest of the game, even the radios suck.... The game isn't funny, just f*cking boring and doesn't feel like a GTA game, it's like a B team made it and the map feels so tiny, they claim it's massive but I can travel to each end in 5 mins :\ SA has a much better map..
Such a let down, it's an even bigger disappointment to me than Max Payne 3 last year... like Rockstar have just out done Blizzard and Bioware in biggest disappointments ever, GTA V is number on for me. I just cannot help but feel what if this was a PC exclusive?
Well that's your opinion and all, but your expectation might've not been realistic, I think you should move your hype to PS5 and X2 era.
-The driving physics, many people enjoy, and they are definitely better than SA, VC or III. -Why the worst GTA?
-Car Damage, is there and has the same amount of damage, the cars only take it slower, and is better than SA, VC or III - Worst GTA?
-Take too much damage, depends, land on a fuel tank and that's it, also a good thing, since AI's shooting is much better.
-Generic World, now that's bullsh*t, no copy or paste, city feels lively, as does the countryside, unlike IV only grey grey city, or liveless countryside of SA, or Generic towns of VC and III - Why the worst GTA?
-Lack of interiors, it may be so in SP. Though still better than SA(super generic and empty) or VC(almost none) or III(pretty much none) - Again the worst GTA? Ever?
-Story is a thing of perspective, but for the fact, the characters and their friends/family are well developed, their dialog is written very cleverly, and there are moments when you feel surprised, the game even makes you care for Trevor. An improvement of a single character of IV, and a marginal improvement in dialog and cutscene work from SA, VC and III - Still Worst GTA EVER?
-The characters suck? But Franklin and Michael are rather similar of past characters of GTA's, street hustler, mafioso? And trevor well he is a character that has been long needed, that represents all the crazyness that the players get up to in other GTA's. So the fact that there are 3 playable characters in a bound together storyline is an improvement from IV Sa VC and 3 - But still again, worst GTA in the last what 15 years?
-Boring Missions, I dare to disagree, it may be not to your taste, but they constantly introduce new gameplay mechanics, new things, new ways of doing stuff, in comparison to IV or VC or III missions which were kill someone, escape the cops and get back, or take someone home, there were a number of exceptional ones, but only SA had the most varied missions alongside V - So the worst one? Seriously dawg?
etc? What etc?
The game's not funny enough, listen to talk radios, watch TV, read adverts on billboards and streets, hell play as Trevor, Dive onto a prostitute from a roof of a house, humor is a matter of opinion, so fair enough, but it is there, and it has clever observations and parodies of modern societies obsessions.
Map size a problem? It's huge, in comparison to other GTA's, GTA:SA had biggest map until V, and in it, you could see los santos from las venturas, it is nowhere near the size of V, though it creates an illusion because of different cities and different architecture, geography, but it is not that big, V though, map is big, not just cause 2 kind of big, but big, and detailed, very very detailed, unlike just cause 2(copy paste) and other games with huge map sizes. V has desert, mountains, canyons, bits of wilderness, sea, beaches, cities, underwater, the same things that SA had, only now it is in so much more detail.
It's your opinion at the end of course, maybe the game was not to your taste, but making a claim that this is the worst GTA game ever, and even creating a thread in a forum, as if almost saying that as fact, is going to annoy many people, and you ain't getting many good responses(why you bothering I don't know, maybe want to troll around a bit, or be a hipster). GTAV offers much much more than IV in content and variety, and is I'd say a direct sequel to GTA:SA, only in full new HD, story and mechanics. This is definitely not the worst GTA, it's just, you hyped too much on it.
