Now I think of it I'm not very fond of "Chop". When you break it down it's really nothing more than a long chase sequence. The part of playing as Chop is really pointless as you're not even controlling him. Just being transported into his perspective.
It could've been so much more fun if we could've actually chased down D as Chop if that that's what the devs were going for.
sorry for following comment BUT,
Says the one who likes the gta IV the most where is nothing but those boring chase type of missions spiced up with little kills.
I think you are being hypocrite when you enjoy whole game full of that boring type of missions then say negatives about same thing in next.
this is just how i sense your post at first read however i feel like you might have some it's-not-fitting-in-gta V-style point going through your post though.
I don't agree with Algonquin either, but in his defense, I think there is more to this particular debate than just the actual "mission tasks" or merely the structure of the missions themselves. We were discussing this in my Properties thread, and he, Cheatz, and some others brought up some interesting points that lead me to believe that the opinion of the individual, with regard to the "fun" of missions, in either IV or V, will be dictated, to a very large extent, but how much he or she likes or dislikes the rest of the game.
I think that while I absolutely don't agree with Algonquin's assessment of the missions he listed, that his opinions are likely being colored by how he dislikes so much of the rest of the game. I think that in order to find missions in a game like GTA V to be fun, that you have to actually enjoy the game itself, outside of those particular missions.
What he says about Chop, for instance, makes sense if he doesn't actually like GTA V all that much. As someone who loves V, I enjoy the hell out of all the missions involving Chop. Hell, I even bring him with me when doing all the collectibles. Not that I need him, since I always use Youtube videos. But having "my dog" with me adds to the immersion for me. Things like Chop (Trevor's friends, Micheal's family) add to the tapestry and flavor of the game for me. But, if I felt about V the way he does, I would probably say the same thing.
He also mentions this:
The Merryweather heist (both options), Did Somebody Say Yoga?, Scouting The Port, Reuniting The Family, Mr Phillips and every damn heist prep "mission".
I love the Merrywheather heist, even the prep! That was a really expansive, fun, entertaining, and action-filled heist. But if I didn't like the game, how would I feel about it? I also think that Mr. Phillips is one of the best missions in the game, AND I actually enjoy the heist prep missions, even though they are mostly very simplistic, because I feel like I am really setting up and perpetrating the heists. To me, they add to the immersion. But how would I feel about all these things if I didn't like V?
So it isn't so much him being a hypocrite as much as he doesn't like the game very much.
