Come on masterfocker.... Some were legitimate points. But to discount things like no vigilante missions among many others as "personal" is completely bogus. If you made a poll here 95% would desire these in the game. It it a valid complaint.

I said some were legitimate complaints. But vigilante missions were personal. Did R* say anything about vigilante missions before release? No. So he's knocking on the game for not having something. You can do that personally, but you can't do that professionally. It doesn't matter how many people would want it. Hell, I would want it! The problem is that he expected something, but didn't get it. Disappointing? Sure. But you can't constantly attack a game that didn't have what you wanted when there was never even a clue about it being in the game. You can personally, and that's why most of his complaints are personal and not to be taken seriously.
 
It's like me constantly attacking Skyrim because they didn't include any other continents. I wanted more continents, but they didn't deliver that!
 
^^^With this example, I expected something that I had no reason to expect. That almost always leads to disappointment. That's why you can't diss a game for not having something they never even talked about/advertised in the first place.
 
Now, if R* had talked about vigilante missions, but they were never in the game, then that would be a legitimate complaint. In his instance, it's not.
That's not an accurate analogy. Vigilante missions were in previous games. While your continent example was not. Skyrim was also far more of a standalone game than gta 5 where we expect certain things to hold constant from game to game. It is not so much I wanted things that aren't here! as it is they removed things that were enjoyable from multiple previous installments of the series, without any explanation. Valid.

 

True, true. That was a bad analogy. Well, that's one point out of most of his whole list that you were able to get me on. He still has 95% of the list of personal stuff.

I put it down a couple weeks ago. What a disappointing little game. This isn't how it supposed to be.

Why? You still haven't told me why you don't like this game.

 

*The main story is too short. Not enough time spent with each character to give them depth or get me emotionally attached to any of them.

 

*The inconsistant vehicle damage is laughable at times. It's three steps back compared to GTA IV. I think San An's damage system was better than V's. When a vehicle crashes headon into a wall or other vehicle, most of the time, no damage occurs. That is a broken game.

 

*Tanks blow up too easy

 

*The rock truck blows after you run over cars--you are not allowed to have fun in this game

 

*The handling. It's too goddamn arcadey. I'm sorry, it just is. Being able to manuever your vehicle in the air is stupid. Being able to flip-flop your car back over is just a bad design choice and totally breaks immersion.

 

*The soundtrack. What a turd. No magic working there at all. A handful of ok songs.

 

*The cops. Psychic. Master marxmen. They're too aggressive. They come from out of nowhere. They come too quick. They can fly past the fastest super car with no problem. They mimic your movements when close to you. It just taps into your controls. You can't fake them out.

 

*No features. San An had more features than GTA V. What a joke. A race track, but it's dead. A casino. But it's dead. There is nothing to do. This game should be loaded with innovative stuff that's fun. It's very empty.

 

*No mission in key areas of the map. No mission at the prison or military base. What a miss that was. Nothing for the Vinewood Bowl. Nothing at the Staples Center except for that talent horsesh*t that is only in one mission.

 

*No attachments for the tractor.

 

*No combine.

 

*Only one lawnmower in the game. They should be in most garages.

 

*Cannot load vehicles on semis.

 

*Cannot load anything onto trains.(think crates full of drugs and stuff like that)

 

*Cannot drive trains or the other public transit

 

*Cannot access North Yankton, only in missions. How dooby

 

*No interiors. Even staple places like Cluckin Bell was left out. How lame.

 

*No flame thrower

 

*Molotovs are hard to find

 

*Not enough weapons(chainsaw, etc)

 

*No vigilante mission, ambulance missions, taxi missions, fire fighter missions, etc., etc

 

*Not enough water crafts(like canoes for the river, etc)

 

*The motorcycles are horrible. 'Nuff said

 

*Heli's are no longer fun to fly. The weeble-wobble syndrome just kills it. How dooby

 

*The planes take off in ten feet and even the fastest jet isn't that fast. Just Cause has V beat in that area(I cannot believe I'm even saying this)

 

*The racism that Trevor has towards the rednecks is unforgivable. Don't tell me it's satire, either, because it goes far beyond that. Imagine Trevor going into a jewish town hollering the same stuff that he hollers at the "rednecks". It's demoralising and planned.

 

*Trevor is too over the top and unlikeable. Good voice actor, though.

 

*The little things like b eing able to take a forklift and load things onto trucks. Just stuff like that to dick around with. Again, no innovation.

 

*Peds are all aggresive.

 

*Peds aren't funny anymore. Nothing really memorable. If there is, it's so hidden that not many get to see it. There is one that I will commend that it was awesome that R* put in. The tap-dancing hillbilly -Jessico White. I know him and was proud that he made it in(even though we are appalachian). R* done him justice. He really does that sh*t quite a bit.

 

*Haircuts, tattoos, etc.--There aren't many options. Hell, even SR had hair and beard options that you could choose from. How many in V? 2-3?

 

*Gang wars.

 

*Vehicle mods are a joke. R* didn't even try with this and it shows

 

*Basket ball should've been in. Instead, we get yoga. f*cking yoga.

 

*There should've been more and better vehicles.

 

*Trucker missions

 

*Better cheats. WTF with what we got

 

*Cannot spawn things where we want. What is that bullsh*t about?

 

*Alens. WTF is this, Saints Row? Bigfoot woulda been cool. Even a UFO sighting every once in a while, but aliens. It breaks immersion

 

*The map is laid out wrong. The map should've had many small country towns that's very different and fun to explore. The ghetto isn't right. The desert's in the wrong place and just isn't very good anyway.

 

*Better and more animals indigenous to the areas. As it seems, R* just threw a handful of crappy sh*t in just to get people hyped, thinking it would be like RDR. Well, it's not. It sucks.

 

*No fishing. I know, it isn't fishing simulator, amirite

 

*ATV's. Not a different variety and no wheelies. Because of R*'s obvious ignorance when it comes to things like man toys, R* may think that wheelies can't be performed on a 4-wheeler.

 

*Vehicle sounds suck and they suck bad. Some of them don't even make sense to the vehicle which they are assigned.

 

*The heists lack creativity. Not enough, either.

 

*The melee system is worse than before

*Cannot interact with peds

 

*The beaches are dead and nothing to do

 

*Lifted trucks are 2WD. R*'s ignorance at man toys yet again

 

*Cop chases end in front of the player far too often and a lot of the times result in getting mixed up in it and wanted when you may be trying to do something.

 

*Cannot buy things for safe houses even though there is a Lowes parody store.

 

*Too far left politically all the time. If R* is going for satire then it should be against everybody. These f*ckers seem like they watch MSNBC. R* goes outta their way with the illegal immigration missions just to make a statement that anyone in the US who wants it stopped, or who think that our borders should be closed are dumb inbred hicks and racists. How pathetic are these british twats. I bet they've never seen the effects in border towns. Just plain liberal ignorance.

 

*No reasons to keep diving.

 

*The side missions are terrible and too quick most of the time

 

*Cannot sit on chairs, benches, etc

 

*Cannot crouch

 

*The world isn't interactive at all. It's just dead

 

*Parachuting has been ruined

 

*There is no wingsuit even though they put a big ass mountain in the game

 

*It's immpossible to take a protag seriously when he's wearing a flower-print mini dress hollering demoralising things to "rednecks".

 

*The endings are dumb. Seem very rushed

 

*No vendors

 

*No pawnshops to sell stolen things. Pawnshops should sell chainsaws, nun-chucks, katanas

 

*No house burglaries

 

*No other islands to fly and land at. It would've gave a reason for flying...that is if you can control it

 

*Cranes don't work

 

*No properties

 

*Nothing really to spend money on

 

*The way vehicle storage is set up sucks

 

*The same with storing aircraft

 

*Online. What can we say? It's utterly boring, not too mention that it's broken.

 

*GTA V 2013 should have far more than it's predecessors, but it doesn't. It takes two steps back everytime. The world just doesn't seem right--emersion is hard to achieve in this one. GTA V was code named RUSH and it shows. This game is weak in almost every way, other than graphics. It is a miss. There is a lot of other things wrong, or missing, that I didn't even put in. It's just one thing after another with this game. It's just not really fun and it seems our freedom has been taken away. Before, we could do whatever we wanted. GTA V has no soul. R.I.P. GTA V

 

 

Honestly Punk I agree with a lot of things on this list, but there are things that are just scraping at the bottom of the barrel or you just haven't bothered to explain in detail. I mean you said parachuting has been ruined, but in what way? Why it is worse than SA or TBOGT? That makes no sense at all.

 

No properties? Unless you mean safehouses this is a blatant lie.

 

While there aren't vigilante, firefighting missions etc taxi missions are still in the game. Go get any taxi and you can start doing them whenever you like.

 

Can't interact with peds? You can talk to any ped on the street bro. Press your right directional button. Some peds will respond with a mumble and some spark up a full response. That's interaction to me. More than what was in SA.

 

I'm not really sure what to think about pawnshops, canoes, fishing etc. I mean can R* be held accountable for every single fan wish not met?

 

None of that is in the old games either. I really think a lot of where GTA V goes wrong is stuff that was present in old games not included or is present, but done very half assed like the friends system, not having pool as an activity despite having a pool table in the bar, very few rampages  etc.

 

That's my take anyway.

100% agree. You said it way better than I said it.

 

The only thing I would change is the agreeing with a lot of things. Almost that whole list is scraping at the bottom of the barrel.

He does makes points about online, the damage, driving (I share his view on the way cars can be controlled in the air. wtf?) etc, but at the same time I thinks he's tried very hard to comb through every aspect and nitpick about things that were never promised to begin with.

Yeah, those were the points I agree with him about.

 

I don't mind being able to control your car in the air. It doesn't hinder anything. I can definitely see why people don't like it though. It's definitely weird having that feature.

You have got a lot of points right here while some are not which have been removed from long text quote to keep it short, sorry
To me it's the absence of basic stuff and features, if developer introduces nothing new still the game won't be as disappointing as shocking is the long list of unexpected cut-down basic immersion.

Driving, Soundtrack are fine and could be better but it's still not bad at all.

Interiors are a result of console limitations

Even if they kept Los Santos and Countryside as it was with no new additions and introduced revamped mechanics, world interactions, realism in AI behaviour plus challenging missions with few more races, casino, pool and many other familiar areas and interiors.
San Andreas in new looks and difference but with same feel and vibe that instantly makes me enjoy playing V

Ok. What about these. *The map is laid out wrong. The map should've had many small country towns that's very different and fun to explore. The ghetto isn't right. The desert's in the wrong place and just isn't very good anyway.
Personal



While this is personal to some degree what is your take on it. This is probably my biggest issue. The map sucks. Graphics/details are nice but the layout is awful. Massive mountains/desert/lakes that take up 70% of the map. Total waste of space. Basically r* saying we promised them a big map but we have no content, I know let's just put an enormous useless ass mountain there! Repeat x 50. 1 city. All the small towns are lacking and give no reason whatsoever to go there. All of this adds up to you spending 90% of your time in about 25-30% of the map. Terrible design. Do you disagree with this? I don't see how you or anyone could. Unless you just love "hiking" aka walking on a mountain that much.

The worst part is all this empty space no doubt substantially decreased the amount of interiors and other features in order to make enough room hardware wise. And for what?

I won't be putting down this game for a long while, I'm still having a blast with it. Every game has its negatives and positives, but people seriously seem to be blowing V's negative aspects out of proportion.

I've never put a game down for good. If I don't want to play it anymore for sure, I sell it. Or give it to a friend. Otherwise, I leave it around at least telling myself that I'll play it again someday - even if it's been over 5 years since.

My two cents:  GTA Online Solo mode is the new GTAV single player game.  That will keep me going for a long time.  It's a miserable grind now, trying to level up and make a few bucks, but when I get up a few levels (I'm only at 12) I will spend time exploring the beautiful world. 

 

I will play GTA0 Solo until (hopefully) good DLC comes out or until the PC mods filter down to casuals like me.

I put it down a couple weeks ago. What a disappointing little game. This isn't how it supposed to be.

Why? You still haven't told me why you don't like this game.
*The main story is too short. Not enough time spent with each character to give them depth or get me emotionally attached to any of them.
 
*The inconsistant vehicle damage is laughable at times. It's three steps back compared to GTA IV. I think San An's damage system was better than V's. When a vehicle crashes headon into a wall or other vehicle, most of the time, no damage occurs. That is a broken game.
 
*Tanks blow up too easy
 
*The rock truck blows after you run over cars--you are not allowed to have fun in this game
 
*The handling. It's too goddamn arcadey. I'm sorry, it just is. Being able to manuever your vehicle in the air is stupid. Being able to flip-flop your car back over is just a bad design choice and totally breaks immersion.
 
*The soundtrack. What a turd. No magic working there at all. A handful of ok songs.
 
*The cops. Psychic. Master marxmen. They're too aggressive. They come from out of nowhere. They come too quick. They can fly past the fastest super car with no problem. They mimic your movements when close to you. It just taps into your controls. You can't fake them out.
 
*No features. San An had more features than GTA V. What a joke. A race track, but it's dead. A casino. But it's dead. There is nothing to do. This game should be loaded with innovative stuff that's fun. It's very empty.
 
*No mission in key areas of the map. No mission at the prison or military base. What a miss that was. Nothing for the Vinewood Bowl. Nothing at the Staples Center except for that talent horsesh*t that is only in one mission.
 
*No attachments for the tractor.
 
*No combine.
 
*Only one lawnmower in the game. They should be in most garages.
 
*Cannot load vehicles on semis.
 
*Cannot load anything onto trains.(think crates full of drugs and stuff like that)
 
*Cannot drive trains or the other public transit
 
*Cannot access North Yankton, only in missions. How dooby
 
*No interiors. Even staple places like Cluckin Bell was left out. How lame.
 
*No flame thrower
 
*Molotovs are hard to find
 
*Not enough weapons(chainsaw, etc)
 
*No vigilante mission, ambulance missions, taxi missions, fire fighter missions, etc., etc
 
*Not enough water crafts(like canoes for the river, etc)
 
*The motorcycles are horrible. 'Nuff said
 
*Heli's are no longer fun to fly. The weeble-wobble syndrome just kills it. How dooby
 
*The planes take off in ten feet and even the fastest jet isn't that fast. Just Cause has V beat in that area(I cannot believe I'm even saying this)
 
*The racism that Trevor has towards the rednecks is unforgivable. Don't tell me it's satire, either, because it goes far beyond that. Imagine Trevor going into a jewish town hollering the same stuff that he hollers at the "rednecks". It's demoralising and planned.
 
*Trevor is too over the top and unlikeable. Good voice actor, though.
 
*The little things like b eing able to take a forklift and load things onto trucks. Just stuff like that to dick around with. Again, no innovation.
 
*Peds are all aggresive.
 
*Peds aren't funny anymore. Nothing really memorable. If there is, it's so hidden that not many get to see it. There is one that I will commend that it was awesome that R* put in. The tap-dancing hillbilly -Jessico White. I know him and was proud that he made it in(even though we are appalachian). R* done him justice. He really does that sh*t quite a bit.
 
*Haircuts, tattoos, etc.--There aren't many options. Hell, even SR had hair and beard options that you could choose from. How many in V? 2-3?
 
*Gang wars.
 
*Vehicle mods are a joke. R* didn't even try with this and it shows
 
*Basket ball should've been in. Instead, we get yoga. f*cking yoga.
 
*There should've been more and better vehicles.
 
*Trucker missions
 
*Better cheats. WTF with what we got
 
*Cannot spawn things where we want. What is that bullsh*t about?
 
*Alens. WTF is this, Saints Row? Bigfoot woulda been cool. Even a UFO sighting every once in a while, but aliens. It breaks immersion
 
*The map is laid out wrong. The map should've had many small country towns that's very different and fun to explore. The ghetto isn't right. The desert's in the wrong place and just isn't very good anyway.
 
*Better and more animals indigenous to the areas. As it seems, R* just threw a handful of crappy sh*t in just to get people hyped, thinking it would be like RDR. Well, it's not. It sucks.
 
*No fishing. I know, it isn't fishing simulator, amirite
 
*ATV's. Not a different variety and no wheelies. Because of R*'s obvious ignorance when it comes to things like man toys, R* may think that wheelies can't be performed on a 4-wheeler.
 
*Vehicle sounds suck and they suck bad. Some of them don't even make sense to the vehicle which they are assigned.
 
*The heists lack creativity. Not enough, either.
 
*The melee system is worse than before

*Cannot interact with peds
 
*The beaches are dead and nothing to do
 
*Lifted trucks are 2WD. R*'s ignorance at man toys yet again
 
*Cop chases end in front of the player far too often and a lot of the times result in getting mixed up in it and wanted when you may be trying to do something.
 
*Cannot buy things for safe houses even though there is a Lowes parody store.
 
*Too far left politically all the time. If R* is going for satire then it should be against everybody. These f*ckers seem like they watch MSNBC. R* goes outta their way with the illegal immigration missions just to make a statement that anyone in the US who wants it stopped, or who think that our borders should be closed are dumb inbred hicks and racists. How pathetic are these british twats. I bet they've never seen the effects in border towns. Just plain liberal ignorance.
 
*No reasons to keep diving.
 
*The side missions are terrible and too quick most of the time
 
*Cannot sit on chairs, benches, etc
 
*Cannot crouch
 
*The world isn't interactive at all. It's just dead
 
*Parachuting has been ruined
 
*There is no wingsuit even though they put a big ass mountain in the game
 
*It's immpossible to take a protag seriously when he's wearing a flower-print mini dress hollering demoralising things to "rednecks".
 
*The endings are dumb. Seem very rushed
 
*No vendors
 
*No pawnshops to sell stolen things. Pawnshops should sell chainsaws, nun-chucks, katanas
 
*No house burglaries
 
*No other islands to fly and land at. It would've gave a reason for flying...that is if you can control it
 
*Cranes don't work
 
*No properties
 
*Nothing really to spend money on
 
*The way vehicle storage is set up sucks
 
*The same with storing aircraft
 
*Online. What can we say? It's utterly boring, not too mention that it's broken.
 
*GTA V 2013 should have far more than it's predecessors, but it doesn't. It takes two steps back everytime. The world just doesn't seem right--emersion is hard to achieve in this one. GTA V was code named RUSH and it shows. This game is weak in almost every way, other than graphics. It is a miss. There is a lot of other things wrong, or missing, that I didn't even put in. It's just one thing after another with this game. It's just not really fun and it seems our freedom has been taken away. Before, we could do whatever we wanted. GTA V has no soul. R.I.P. GTA V

if all your wishes, rants and raves are granted by R*, the game will be thrice as expensive bec it will come in a 3 disc pack.

I don't understand people who complain about the friends system. I like the fact that is completely optional and the fact that people don't get mad and stop doing favors if I am on my way to a mission and turn their requests to hang out. If I want to hang out I will call them but otherwise they leave me alone. I like that.

He does makes points about online, the damage, driving (I share his view on the way cars can be controlled in the air. wtf?) etc, but at the same time I thinks he's tried very hard to comb through every aspect and nitpick about things that were never promised to begin with.

Yeah, those were the points I agree with him about.
 
I don't mind being able to control your car in the air. It doesn't hinder anything. I can definitely see why people don't like it though. It's definitely weird having that feature.
Ok. What about these. *The map is laid out wrong. The map should've had many small country towns that's very different and fun to explore. The ghetto isn't right. The desert's in the wrong place and just isn't very good anyway.
Personal



While this is personal to some degree what is your take on it. This is probably my biggest issue. The map sucks. Graphics/details are nice but the layout is awful. Massive mountains/desert/lakes that take up 70% of the map. Total waste of space. Basically r* saying we promised them a big map but we have no content, I know let's just put an enormous useless ass mountain there! Repeat x 50. 1 city. All the small towns are lacking and give no reason whatsoever to go there. All of this adds up to you spending 90% of your time in about 25-30% of the map. Terrible design. Do you disagree with this? I don't see how you or anyone could. Unless you just love "hiking" aka walking on a mountain that much.

 

I agree that the map is lacking. It's personal, however, because it's personal feelings. Some people may love the map the way it is, and don't want it to be changed. That's why it's personal. I agree with him with that point, but that doesn't make it any less personal.

You don't really have to ask a ton of questions as to what was wrong with GTA V by this stage. You should know what most of the cited issues are, you are not that dumb or ignorant, so stop acting like it. You cannot get away from the fact that many, including myself just don't believe that GTA V realized it's full potential, and with valid reasons. 

 

I appreciate you really like GTA V and you think very highly of it, but you just gotta accept that in some ways it was a letdown for many.

While he is correct in that it most of it boils down to opinion. Just by looking at responses itt you can see many many people have issues with this game and that it's not just a couple "haters". Hopefully r* turns this sinking ship around in gta 6 though I'm not too hopeful. Too much has gone downhill over the past couple games.

GTAs are always good for an occasional car chase, a crazy jump, or a hoe beatdown rampage. So probably when GTA VI comes out, I'll stop playing V for good.

You might dislike the game but it is far from a sinking ship. It is clearly a success by any definition of the word.

I imagine I'll put down GTA V (console) when GTA V (PC) comes out :D  Being able to effectively mod the game would allow us to *fix* a lot of the problems, just as it did in IV.

I think I'll most like put down GTA V for good whenever I quit playing video games for good. Saying that, it's likely I'm done with video games in a few years as I'm not very much of a gamer like I used to be. Don't know whether to say I'm sad or not.

I don't even think it's that bad of a game. The series is just moving in the wrong direction IMO. Taking humor out, too much focus on online, too much emphasis on voice acting and things that add no replay value whatsoever to the game etc I could go on and on. The ship hasn't sunk. Its just been punctured by an iceberg.

I still believe the game is a great experience. I had a right blast, I really enjoyed it. The problem for me is that it just was not enough of what I found so great about it, in addition to missing things from previous GTAs that had no excuse to be missing in the first place. And I agree with Crusty, I just think Rockstar appear to be taking GTA in wrong direction, especially with this really big focus on the online at the expense of the single player.
