I still play Vice City, GTA 3, and San Andreas. I never put down games. They are just too fun, games, yes so much fun.

Out of all of those, I usually like to replay San Andreas once a year, sometimes to 100%, sometimes just for the entire story. Vice City was also a great game, but it's pretty frustrating on the console for me. GTA III, I honestly didn't like it as much as the other two. It's not a bad game, but IMO, it's one of the weaker GTA 3D era games.

This is the first GTA game that's gotten boring in under a month. I took my time with the missions too, but sadly, the game doesn't really offer much other than missions, and f*cking yoga. :(

 

Such a big map with a whole lot of nothing. Not as bad as JC2, but close.

I think after these loyal defenders play the game a little longer they will come to the same conclusion as us. It's the truth of the game. Just a matter of when you realize it.

I hope the defenders of the game 'wake up' and realize that too much was sacrificed from SP for MP. I stopped playing it after three weeks. I have very little desire to even play multiplayer. I still play GTA IV on a very frequent basis (modding police vehicles helps, yes I'm one of those players).

 

Cheers.

 

P.S. Is it strange that I listen to West Coast Classics more on YouTube than in game?

I put the game down a couple of weeks ago. After you do the missions and do each activity once, there really isnt much to do. 80% of Side missions are dull and not fun, the map outside the city is really dull and boring, cops take too long to get rid of and spawn right in front of you, and most of all, online was a pretty bad let down for me. All the jobs are boring and repetitive, no pedestrians, and annoying cops really take away from online for me. The only time I have fun online is with friends and thats only when all of us can get on, which is very seldom. Also, hate the fact they took out many features from single player and put it in multiplayer where it is not as fun.

Another 5* post. They honestly didn't get a single thing right with the cops in this game. From their spawning, to the driving in front of you perfectly in sync with your every move to block you off. sh*ts ridiculously stupid.

Despite the fact that "loyal defenders" have probably played and still playing the game way more than you guys did.

Also, the "simple truth" is ...simply destroyed by...the simple numbers.

Funny. I was starting to get to the point of being bored and left it for a few days, but this new playthrough has rejuvenated my interest.

This game is so frustrating not because it's bad, but I just don't know how to feel. It's so well done in a lot of ways, but many missed opportunities are present.

@ Masterfocker

 

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. 

I think you misunderstand.
 
I know what the prominent issues are. And I agree with most of them. However, I argue with people like AtomicPunk, who decide to bash the game because it didn't have "fishing" or "The ability to mod a tractor". That's just stupid, and not a valid complaint. It's a personal complaint, which is what I've been saying the whole time.
 
I've had good discussions with people who have legitimate complaints, such as CrustyFapSock (I still lol at that name every time), and he's even turned me on a point.
 
"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."
 
No, and I'm not trying to. I know you're one of the people with valid complaints. I agree that GTA 5 didn't reach it's true potential. But, like I said before, the countless people who are bashing R* with stuff like "fishing" (And also, see this thread and you'll know what I mean: http://gtaforums.com...-gta-5-details/) are speaking louder than you guys, and it's ruining your reputation. It's the same thing that's going on with PC players. There's the few elitists that call console players "peasants" and call themselves the "Master Race", who give a bad name to the whole community.
 
"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. "
 
I do really like GTA 5, but that's mainly because I can roleplay the sh*t out of it. GTA 5 is one of the best games for roleplaying. Try it sometime, it extends the f*ck out of the game if you do it right. I do accept that it was a letdown for some people. But I don't accept it for people like AtomicPunk, because it's a letdown for them because there was only one lawnmower in the game (He actually said that :facedesk: )

For some reason I like gta 5 better than gta 4. gta 4 after completing the mission was boring as hell, apart from shooting pigeons god knows what else one could have done. The city felt soulless and grey, plus the whole girlfriend and friend thing annoyed the hell out of me.it's just superior to the previous title in every way. So I will keep playing this game, even after I get ps4 I will keep firing up my ps3 till a better and superior gta v is released on the next gen consoles.

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.

Although I agree, it is subjective. Some people may find it too long. It's all down to personal preference.

*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.

I also agree. San Andreas's damage system was in no way better than 5's though. The problem with 5's damage is that it takes too much to do considerable damage. You can still f*ck up your car pretty good.

*Tanks blow up too easy

I don't know about this, since I've never used the tank. It's also subjective though.

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

I don't even know about this. Don't run over cars with a dump truck? Never used the vehicle before, but I've never heard about this.

*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.

Completely subjective. The handling is light years ahead of GTA 4's. You're no longer driving a boat in GTA 5. You can actually turn without spinning 3,000 times.

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

I also don't like the soundtrack, but this is one of the most subjective things there is. Someone may like every single song they put in.

*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.

The only thing wrong with the cops is spawning in front of you and getting an instant wanted level when shooting someone in public. There's only been a handful of people who complain about psychic cops. I have never experienced this. If I hide behind a dumpster, they'll drive right past me.

*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 features? I'm not even gonna respond to this because it's so stupid.

*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.

Personal preference. Your whole hate revolves around you hyping yourself up for the game, and when they didn't meet your expectations, they disappointed you.

*No attachments for the tractor.

...I don't even...

*No combine.

Personal

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

Again, this is so little it's ridiculous. How is this even a point?

*Cannot load vehicles on semis.

Personal

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

Personal

*Cannot drive trains or the other public transit

Personal

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

Personal

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

That's because current gen consoles suck ass.

*No flame thrower

Personal

*Molotovs are hard to find

Are you serious?

*Not enough weapons(chainsaw, etc)

There's a sh*tton of weapons.

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

Valid, but personal.

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

...

*The motorcycles are horrible. 'Nuff said

How? How can enough be said if nothing was said?

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

The wobble is kinda annoying, but it doesn't alter flying THAT much. It's not like it makesit unplayable.

*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 Jets aren't fast because they don't want you flying over the map in 5 seconds. How is this even a point?

*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.

It's Trevor's character. Are you serious?

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

That's the whole f*cking point.

*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.

"The little things" Exactly. this is personal.

*Peds are all aggresive.

They're over the top, but they represent Americans and L.A. residents very well.

*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.

I just watched a video where civilians said some very funny things. They just don't do it as much.

*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?

SR has a sh*tton more customization than GTA

*Gang wars.

Personal. Why would there be gang wars? Franklin is trying to get away from the Hood.

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

How? There's a sh*tton of stuff to choose from.

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

Again, personal.

*There should've been more and better vehicles.

There's a sh*tton of vehicles.

*Trucker missions

Personal.

*Better cheats. WTF with what we got

Cheats are kinda disappointing. I give you that

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

Personal

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

Aliens break immersion, but Bigfoot wouldn't have? 

*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

*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.

Personal

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

Personal

*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.

Or maybe they just didn't do it because they didn't want to? You're making assumptions to blame R*.

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

Subjective

*The heists lack creativity. Not enough, either.

Subjective

*The melee system is worse than before

Subjective

*Cannot interact with peds

You could almost never interact with peds.

*The beaches are dead and nothing to do

There's people on and around the beach. Start a massacre.

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

Seriously?

*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.

I don't understand what you're saying here.

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

Ok? There's also an internet cafe, can't go in it. How is this even a point?

*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.

Looks like they got to you. They did the job they intended to. Way to go.

*No reasons to keep diving.

Exploration.

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

Haven't played all the side missions, can't comment. From what I have played, they seemed fun and varied.

*Cannot sit on chairs, benches, etc

Subjective. This literally has no effect on anything

*Cannot crouch

It's replaced with stealth mode. Subjective

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

It's very interactive (Random encounters), just not like usual GTA's.

*Parachuting has been ruined

How?

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

...How is this a point? It's personal as f*ck.

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

Character.

*The endings are dumb. Seem very rushed

Endings could've been better

*No vendors

24/7

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

Personal

*No house burglaries

Personal

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

Reason for flying? Getting places faster...

*Cranes don't work

What do you mean?

*No properties

There's a ton of properties

*Nothing really to spend money on

You can't be f*cking serious...

*The way vehicle storage is set up sucks

How? It's easy. It was just glitched

*The same with storing aircraft

Never stored aircraft, can't comment

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

Subjective

*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

Most of the things you've used as points is things YOU expected to be put into the game. You set yourself up to be disappointed. R* advertised, and they delivered on what they said. They said nothing about 90% of the stuff you're mad wasn't added. That's your own fault. It's the same as people overhyping themselves. You guys overhyped yourself to the point where everything was a disappointment.

My comments are in red. Most of your stuff is what you expected to be in the game, but wasn't. You can't hate on a game for what it didn't have that YOU wanted. You review a game by what it has. Plus, all of the stuff you mentioned requires next-gen.

 

Get a life dude XD

Fair enough, you explained yourself well. I think Atomic is just a bit more hyped up and fiery in his expressions of his personal views, but I can feel his disappointments though. But you have a point as well. 

 

You know what, I'm actually beginning to feel like such an idiot for thinking that GTA V was gonna surpass GTA IV in almost every way. I cannot even believe I find myself looking forward to playing GTA IV again. If this is happening, then my mind is telling me that GTA V just was not as great as I thought it would be, regardless of how much I enjoyed it. Strange feeling for sure.

But, like I said before, the countless people who are bashing R* with stuff like "fishing" (And also, see this thread and you'll know what I mean: http://gtaforums.com...-gta-5-details/) are speaking louder than you guys, and it's ruining your reputation. It's the same thing that's going on with PC players. There's the few elitists that call console players "peasants" and call themselves the "Master Race", who give a bad name to the whole community.
 
"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. "
 
I do really like GTA 5, but that's mainly because I can roleplay the sh*t out of it. GTA 5 is one of the best games for roleplaying. Try it sometime, it extends the f*ck out of the game if you do it right. I do accept that it was a letdown for some people. But I don't accept it for people like AtomicPunk, because it's a letdown for them because there was only one lawnmower in the game (He actually said that :facedesk: )

 

 

Fair enough, you explained yourself well. I think Atomic is just a bit more hyped up and fiery in his expressions of his personal views, but I can feel his disappointments though. But you have a point as well. 

 

You know what, I'm actually beginning to feel like such an idiot for thinking that GTA V was gonna surpass GTA IV in almost every way. I cannot even believe I find myself looking forward to playing GTA IV again. If this is happening, then my mind is telling me that GTA V just was not as great as I thought it would be, regardless of how much I enjoyed it. Strange feeling for sure. 

 

I think most of the disappointment, aside from the valid complaints and things that aren't their best in the game (cops), come from people expecting too much/overhyping themselves. Like when people here "The story revolves around heists" and their head goes "We can do so many heists at anytime!"

 

RolfStarGames: I have one. Thanks for the advice though, I'll hold it near and dear to my heart

@ Masterfocker

 

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. 

I think you misunderstand.
 
I know what the prominent issues are. And I agree with most of them. However, I argue with people like AtomicPunk, who decide to bash the game because it didn't have "fishing" or "The ability to mod a tractor". That's just stupid, and not a valid complaint. It's a personal complaint, which is what I've been saying the whole time.
 
I've had good discussions with people who have legitimate complaints, such as CrustyFapSock (I still lol at that name every time), and he's even turned me on a point.

Sooner or later i will stop playing for good. Gta V is just no where near as good as San Andreas, or Gta 4 for that fact. The characters you hang out with in gta v is just so....limited boring and goes no where.

@ Masterfocker

 

I keep hearing certain people on here say that stuff a lot - "many people got disappointed because they expected too much from GTA V and overhyped it themselves". This is mainly from those who staunchly defend the game (not saying you are).

 

No disrespect, but I think a lot of that is bullsh*t man. Most of the features and content that were missing from the game and complained about by these same guys were reasonable and valid annoyances. I cannot see what would have been so impossible about including the most cited examples like gang wars, drug-dealing, burglaries, longer storyline, more heists, more safehouse properties, more accessible interiors among other things. Most of the complaints revolved around missing things that were more than feasible to be included in the game. It's not like people were expecting the impossible, unrealistic or very extraordinary stuff for this game. 

 

And on top of that, Rockstar really hyped GTA V themselves in a major, it certainly was not the fans. You only have to look back at their previews, screenshots and press releases. Yeah sure, they may not have been very technical and specific with their explanations of what was in the game, but what they stated and presented was more than enough to create an image of the game being greater than it really was.  Look at that Underbelly Of Paradise video - anyone would have understandably believed that the hood was gonna be one exciting and very dangerous place to be in and get into trouble - in reality, it was NOTHING like that. 

 

Sorry, but by blaming the fans's high demands and expectations is just providing another excuse for Rockstar to overlook their persistent flaws that they just don't wanna seem to address.

While you're right about the lawnmower and the modding out tractors (lmao) complaints. I think you need to look at it from a different perspective. If you only agree with say 10 out 40 of his complaints. That doesn't translate to the game is 75% flawless. The things he got hugely right like the cops, the side missions and map are of far more significance than even if they did promise fishing for example. Alot of the complaints were low tier if you look at it from a weighted perspective while the bigger ones were for the most part correct. Rockstar got plenty of the little issues correct such as parachuting which i have no problem with while making an abomination of most of the bigger game breaking issues that are vital to nearly every part of the game.

I'm not using it as a huge blame. But I think it's where the stupid, not the valid, complaints come from. When every comment in a thread for the first 8 pages is stuff about masturbating and the like, it kinda points to that (I'm talking about when R* released info). And then seeing those same people complain about the game afterwards, using stupid complaints, it's like putting 2-and-2 together.

 

CrustyFapSock:

 

" If you only agree with say 10 out 40 of his complaints. That doesn't translate to the game is 75% flawless."

 

I don't get what you're trying to say here. Could you elaborate? I think I have an idea, but I'm not certain.

 

"The things he got hugely right like the cops, the side missions and map are of far more significance than even if they did promise fishing for example."

 

I agreed with those points of his. However, you can't bash GTA 5 because it didn't have fishing. It's just ridiculous.
