I have played many games, some linear and some open world. I wonder how many points does open world count for? How many subpar elements can be written off with 'but it was open world game!'?

 

I hope this really is just a difference in taste, but this was such a step back in story telling innovation that I don't think I ever want to play (or at least throw my own money at) a GTA again. I can play tick tack toe and I can do arithmetic and I can write nice poems and I can push buttons real good but if there is not a decent motivation keep me on my couch- you're not going to. Rockstar more than won me over with RDR, IV and MP3. As of now- I'll be that person who's looking at the realistic reviews to see if the next game is actually two sh*ts artistic. Yes now I've brought art into the picture.

 

The fact that I'm uninterested in V, and therefore all future installments of GTA, is probably a good thing.It is somewhat heartbreaking though- it's like when your favorite band starts producing pop hits and making loads of cash and you're the only one left worshipping their crappy records (CDs).

 

I've done all I can to avoid the "IV FANBOY" alerts. I just think there is a lot to be lost if we are all willing to throw story down the drain as a fundamental component to GOTY.

It's not throwing story down the drain as a fundamental component. It's just not making story the ONLY fundamental component.

It only won it because it had Grand Theft Auto in the title. Game of the Year awards shouldn't go to games that sell the most or look the best, it should go to ones that are fun and actually work. Too many aspects of GTA V are broken and flawed, yet it still won? I guess that's how every award works nowadays, it goes to the one that's the most popular...

Call me a fanboy, but I'd say V very much deserved the award. Congratulations Rockstar!

You know what, f*ck it. I wish death apon Rockstar's future development of the next GTA title. Like it ends right here. No more ever. Just because they umm "dropped the ball" on the most anticipated game in history. Y'all happy now?

1) It won because it was the best game of the year, voted by the media.

 

2) If GOTY was based on what sold the most, then half the games that are nominated wouldn't be nominated.

 

3) If it was based on best looking, GTA 5 would've definitely lost.

 

4) Only in your fantasy world does GTA 5 not 'work' and that 95% of the game is broken.

 

Have a nice day. I'm sure it's always sunny for you.

 

Oh, and guess who won best action/adventure game? Not GTA 5.

 

Guess who won studio of the year? Not Rockstar North.

 

Guess who won best Playstaton game? Not GTA 5.

 

Guess who won best Xbox game? Not GTA 5.

 

Guess who won best voice actor? Not Ogg.

 

GTA 5 won 2 awards (Also won best soundtrack) compared to losing 3 directly and 2 relating to the game. They lost more than they won.

 

But yeah, it definitely won because it was more popular, right!?

 

Nope, you're just blindly hating, and it's borderline retarded.

Jesus Christ.

A year ago- no scratch that; a couple MONTHS ago, some of y'all would've sh*t your pants in joy if you heard V was getting GOTY. Now today (yes I know it ain't perfect) people are seriously disgusted....like legitimately PISSED that it won like if Lego Star Wars won GOTY over TLOU.
No pleasing folks.

No surprise to me, this place is now a no-man's land, all the nice members since the game's announcement are now gone or more simply they are PLAYING the game. This place is now filled with trolls, haters, and immatures. 

I don't worry though. You can see this type of butthurt only in here. I've played both TLOU and GTAV and i think that GTA deserved it 100%.

Am I the one who does'nt particularly care about GOTY or other awards like it?IMO a game should stand on it's own two feet and not worry about having a couple of meaningly awards do it for them.GTA5 is a great game and it does'nt need a award to convince people that it's good,the only thing things like GOTY serve to do is fuel egos.

Well, GTA 5 still set 7 world records 2 months before the GOTY awards, so I don't know where you're trying to get at.

 

GOTY isn't used to sell games. It's used as an achievement.

Except the award itself means absolutely nothing,the over 800 million sales and having the most money earned in the first 24 hours should be the achievement for GTA5.I mean it's not like Rockstar or any other game devs get plaques or medals for winning these awards unlike other entertainment industries.

I like GTAV, but I feel it's overrated like GTAIV, that said, V is better than pretty much all the other games out there for total content, sure I might not have enjoyed it so much, but it's still pretty great.

Maybe i'm just getting old.

This pile of sh*t doesn't deserve this award. Seriously. And neither does BF4 or CoD Ghosts. 2013 is a real bad year for gaming.

A game like V is bound to have haters, people will always hating on something popular, thats just how internet works.

Unfortunately not. GTA V will win most, if not all, GOTY awards simply because it's a Grand Theft Auto title. Any reasonable person would see that GTA V is an incomplete game.

 

Butthurt fanboys in 3... 2... 1...

 

Compared to the other sh*t that came out this year, GTA V is prety complete and has a lot offer. Only idiots suggest that GTA V doesn't deserve game of the year. Sure, I don't think it's perfect and definitely could use some touch ups, but damn, I love GTA V. TLOU is nothing compared to GTA V. Only Bioshock had a good chance against GTA V.

Exactly. We GTA fanboys know that GTA V missed a lot of opportunities, but compared to everything else, GTA is still the best.

hahah i love seeing these pc gamers and whiny kids crying because V is winning all the GOTY awards... 

 

Anyway well deserved, great game that kept me busy for a LOT of hours (something a game hasn't done for years), it's obvious GTA V will win most of the awards, and no not because it's just another gta game (by that logic, why don't you trade the name of FIFA to GTA 14, I guess than FIFA would be winning a bunch of rewards too :facedesk:  ) or because it's an incomplete game (which it's not, this is just the talk of ignorant PC gamers), but yes because it's one of the greatest game released this year and probably the best current-gen game you'll find

Everybody who has different tastes than you is not a conformist. No offense but this sounds like something a teenage goth kid would say about anybody that didn't like Marilyn Manson or The Cure.

GTA V - 50-100 hours to do everything

 

yet V is the uncomplete game

Lol I can't understand how people say the physics are broken.
Just cause 2 has broken physics.
Some were expecting gta v to be the best game ever made but were disappointed when they found out it was only "excellent"

I enjoy this game, so come on people and hate on me because I do.

I really don't want to see GTA V hogging most of the GOTY awards. Sure it's great, but it's not exactly a masterpiece imo. There are other games that deserve it as well.


Its a hell of a lot better than you and others like you make it out to be. I'm not going to jump on Rockstars Wang, but out of all the other games released this year, GTA V is the best.

Well deserved I'd say. Its always the biggest fanboys who hold their favourite franchise to the most unrealistic standards then judge it in the least objective way when it arrives.I call them the Zeetypes (see what I did :lol: )
 
I've only been playing since Vice City myself and there are other gaming franchises in my life, so I just see GTAV and Online is an epic f*cking game that's consuming a lot of my spare time simple as that. 
 
People have different parameters for judging games now as well though - as if they were judging a movie, a book or a piece of art - by these standards there are other games around that could be seen as superior, however I think that's always been the case. A game about cars and guns is never going to be taken seriously as art so people using those parameters need to stop deluding themselves. Judged solely as an actual video game GTA is king everytime.
