Ok, so I posted this in another thread a few days ago, but seeing all of these depressing threads from complainers and trolls has led me to create my own thread, and expand on my original post.
First of all, I genuinely don't understand how anyone can be bored with this game. I'm no "fanboy" or whatever, and I appreciate others opinions, but I just don't get it. With the amount of content and features in V (the game required us to install 8gb of data for Chists sake!), how can you be bored already?
This is why I firmly believe they are one of the following:
-A generic FPS gamer
-A spoiled child who expected way too much from this outdated hardware
-The type of gamer who needs to rush everything while not appreciating the finer details
I'm having an absolute blast with this game. Just the exploration of the gigantic map alone is a seller for me. Like the thread title states, every GTA just gets better and better in my honest opinion:
GTA III: Introduction of a 3D gaming open world
Vice City: Introduction of helicopters, a protag with actual personality, bright lights, great setting + soundtrack
San Andreas: Multiple cities, introduction of countryside + desert, an endless amount of features
GTA IV: Amazing upgrade on graphics, extremely fun physics (both driving + ragdoll), great storyline with a good length, great characters and voice work
GTA V: Absolutely massive map (I don't care what anyone says, it looks AND feels huge to me), introduction of multiple protags (the switching is great fun), hugely improved shooting mechanics, loads of new side activities, just a general mix of everything from previous titles
I'm not saying V is perfect (the campaign was a bit too short for me, and I still prefer the driving physics of IV), but it doesn't deserve anywhere near the level of hate it's getting from some people on this forum.
Anyway, just wanted to get this off my chest.
