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.
