At least you can acknowledge they have been improved.
I'm beginning to think many insult V because it surpasses San Andreas in every aspect except mainly side activities. It basically renders every other aspect of SA obsolete. And gamers hate that.
Gamers know the graphics are better. The mechanics are better. The game is more polished overall. It blows SA out of the water. But yet people are still clinging to SA like a baby blankie.
Yes, GTA V causes SA to look like a classic turd, but don't hate V for that.
This post is funny because everything he mentioned that blows SA out of the water revolves around the technical aspects of the game, which are expected to be improved as time moves forward.
I think GTA V takes the majority of the good things in GTA San Andreas and improves upon them. We have total command of the air, as in SA (helicopters, planes, jets, parachutes, even blimp), total command of land as in SA (cars, trucks, ATVs, buggies, bikes, motorcycles) and total command of the water as in SA - yet better (boats, submersible, diving gear). And all this with greatly improved graphics, motion and mechanics.
Sure, San Andreas allowed CJ to get fat, or the favored athletic physique, but it was all limited to the single, thugged-out CJ. GTA V offers 3 characters, with 3 different personalities and settings, still with clothing options and other customizable features - except weight gain/etc. Not too shabby in my opinion. That trumps the single, less dynamic thugged out single protagonist system of San Andreas.
