Yeah you won, whatever makes you happy. You have proved time and time again that all you wanna do is talk about how much you hate the hood/gangsta stuff and San Andreas in these discussions - seriously, this bullsh*t of yours is just boring and tedious. Frankly, I just aint' got time to spare for it. Like I said before, express it to someone else that's willing to discuss it with you.
I'm gonna answer your next question. I NEVER once said that past GTAs had no crime-related activities. You have me mixed up with someone else.
I know you're disappointed about lack of crime stuff, but let me ask you this:
How would you rate the game?
And by that, I mean rate it by what's in the game. Not by what's not in the game.
I'm curious as to what you'd score it without being disappointed by things you wanted that weren't in.
Also, some explanation behind your score would be ideal. Details.
Right. The things I loved about GTA V :
* The graphics and visual effects were stunning to look at, and so beautiful detailed.
* Los Santos looked amazing
* The map was huge, with an extensive variation of landscapes and environments.
* Many of the cars and other vehicles looked superb.
* Some of heists and other missions were pure action-packed, explosive, classic moments of fun (mainly the non-FIB/cop ones).
* A lot of funny, comical moments in the story that made for great laughs and entertainment.
* It was great to see a large variety of weapons once again.
* The convenience store robbery hold-ups were great fun, I was so glad to see this feature return.
* I really liked the random criminal events - it made the Los Santos streets feel much more lively with regards to the crime rate.
* I really liked the police system where you can escape the police if you run out of sight and successfully hide from them.
* I really loved the fact that out of choice, I could kill my most hated protagonist out of the three - TREVOR.
GTA V does many things right in a great way, but it also gets so many small things wrong, that in the end it affected many important aspects of the gameplay and held it back from being the ultimate GTA experience. I won't go into all of that, you know it already. But it is a shame, because V just had the potential and all the ingredients in place to be the best GTA game ever. Regardless, I still had a great time playing the game, it was great fun, I had a right blast for most part. I was still provided with many very memorable and classic GTA moments, and it's definitely worth having in my collection as a big GTA fan. I'm still very much glad I bought it and played it, even though it let me down in certain key areas.
So rather than give it a perfect 10 or near-perfect 9, I'd say it deserves solid 8/10.
Definitely a great game - just not as great as it should and could have been.
