The minigames were a waste of resources as expected.

Am I the only one who likes yoga? I mean yeah it's not something do everytime I play, but I've tied it a couple of times and it's not that bad. Besides it builds up Michael's special ability so it's not really pointless.


I think what people have to realise is the game's designed for an audience. Not just them. As someone said above they give a sense of normality.


One reason I find games like JC2 boring is the only  thing to do is blow sh*t up, but that gets boring after a while. However there's no real alternative. With GTA V (like I found with GTA IV) killing gets tiring so why not participate in a game of golf, a yoga session, tennis etc to break it up?


OP: There are horses in GTA V,, but they're quite rare. I saw one in the first couple of days after getting the game along side the highway outside of Sandy Shores.


In regards to gambling why would there be gambling when there's a stock market which technically is gambling?  Yes it's not the same as going to a casino and playing poker, blackjack etc, but the principle is the same. Invest into a company and make a killing or lose it all.


Loved Yoga and Triathlon :)

I would trade yoga and darts for horses and pool.


I was dissapointed by the lack of horses.


You can't have a countryside without horses. Come on.

should of put more mission,3 protags but the total amount of missions is less than SA its self 

Even though the Missions are less there Awesome unlike San Andreas where a lot of the missions weren't good.

Didn't vice city have pizza deliveries? And san andreas had an entire fitness system that included fat, because who plays a game to get away from the inconveniences of real life?


Sh*t, isn't "Cousin, let's go bowling" a f*cking meme at this point? "Useless" activities aren't exactly new.

I do ask myself why why why why why did they leave police vigilante out?


I played GTA IV vigilante right up until V was released i.e. for five years and I always thought it was fun.


It would have been perfect in V, all that space.


The mind boggles, I mean, how did that meeting go? I just want to punch the guy who made that decision. "Hey shall we take the only thing that makes the game timeless out of the game?". "Yeaaaah yeah yeah why not".

You can program any macro into the controller ...for example forward on the joystick, and rapid tap A ...to ...you know ...help with them triathalons

More like subjectively. As I said doing yoga increases Michael's special ability faster. It's not useless at all.

The game needed at least one more major city, to be honest. That's the big thing that I feel is missing. Another city close to the size of urban/suburban Los Santos...


A GTA game with one single city surrounded by vast, boring, countryside is just very disappointing. I would rather see huge portions of the country taken out and replaced with another huge city... with highway and country inbetween/surrounding... 



But only one city is inexcuable when given 5 years... It doesn't matter about actual size, GTA V just FEELS smaller than other GTA games including SA mainly because it doesn't have other major cities...

Agree. They should have focused on Vigilante missions and such. If I want to play tennis, I´ll play a tennis game.

Yeah, having a horse track with no horses is f*cking ridiculous. Especially when they already have access to the best in-game horse ever made. A horse ride-by on Grove Street -- why the f*ck did they ruin that golden opportunity for us?
