Don't worry...I'm sure there will be eventually. Lets just get it out of the way and think about for a minute or two...

 

What if GTA V never comes out on PC?

 

NO, I will not pay your medical bills for those who just had a heart attack, but its a hypothetical question. Discuss what would happen if GTA V never comes out on PC (Or at least not for a long time)
Think about it, while I never played RDR, for an obvious reason, but THAT has never come out on PC now has it? What if GTA V follows suite, which has been linked to RDR in many cases.

 

I think what will happen is that if GTA V never comes out on PC or next-gen, the PS3s and 360s will RUST and GTA V will be forever forgotton considering how BROKEN it was being compared to the likes of IV and San Andreas. GTA V is a good game and I got faith, but lets face it R*, you f*cked up.

Actually, no...
but I think that mass thread leans towards the optimism of a PC release. I just want to get a little GrIM

I'd say "That'll never happen" but you insist on this being a purely "what-if" scenario. I will respect that and not get defensive since it is blatant hypothesis. 

 

So...

 

1. GTA Online's future would be absolutely devastated for obvious reasons. 

 

2. The general life-cycle of the overall game (GTA V + Standalone GTA Online) would be drastically reduced. I severely doubt anyone's conna care about it by this time next year (Again, IF it remains current-gen only) 

 

3. It would basically leave the PC community absolutely decimated and probably kill the relations forever. 

 

I don't know why you'd like to be grim, or why you feel there needs to be a balance. So that people don't get disappointed? People are already disappointed. The only thing that's gonna make them *not* disappointed is a PC release.  

 

As it stands, GTA V on current-gen is a (technical) disaster. It is a great video game on its own. But technically? It's horrible. It's a feat that the game pushed the consoles the way it did and managed to squeeze every tiny little bit of juice out of them. But I do not think it was worth it, in the end. Too much was sacrificed, and while a lot has been gained, what has been sacrificed is VERY noticeable. Not to mention the horrid (sometimes unplayable) FPS problems and amounts of aliasing that downright hurt my eyes when I'm driving at high speeds during daylight.

I'd hung the Houser brothers upside down from a tree branch in the forest, put some food that attracted animals in their face and wait till the beasts ate them alive, unless they assure me they would immediately start working on it.

I'd do the thing that one bond villain did in Casino Royale. I'd strap them both to a hollow chair and beat their testicles in 200 different ways of mutilating the human scrotum. 

 

At least, that's how I remember it. It's been 7 years since that movie, lol.

I would guess that it would really slow down cash flow and when VI is released and it would be on PC, GTA V and GTA Online would be viewed as "side-jump" later.

The only thing which worries me is that It might come out even later than usual. Lets say they decide to release complete edition at the end of 2014 with all DLC's included. Personally I don't give a damn about DLC's, don't think I would even buy them seperately, I just want the main game.

Red Dead series was on console from the beginning and never came to PC...Similar things have been done with other games by other companies, EA's Bad Company for instance; Battlefield originated on PC too.  Just because a name is behind a game doesn't mean it is planned for PC at all, it has been this way since NES.

 

However, I don't think PC has much to worry about with Grand Theft Auto...We built this f*cking series.

LOL no. Just look how many years it took for PCSX2 to evolve. PS3's architecture is far more complex, I don't think we'll be able to run commercial games on PC in near future.

Although I always thought that they will not release the game for pc
according to what I read in an article by TAKE TWO President
he said that they have a plan for PC games in the near future(maybe gta v?)
and Rockstar's response to the question whether they will release a PC version has
become from we have no information about it to look at the newswire
I am 100% sure that the game will be released to PC (and PS4, XB1)

I have the game for PS3, but I want better graphics and much more live environment
(more NPC'S in the streets and more animals) so I really want GTA V for PC
same type of cars on the main roads can be solved in the PC version

No he's just bullsh*tting you. There is no way to emulate GTAV on PC and there won't be for a LONG LONG time.

IMO you may think "IMO this thread is bad" but IMO the mass PC discussion tends to lean to the more optimistic side of us seeing a PC version IMO. IMO this lesser topic, while it may not be the best IMO, but IMO it considers the other side of the PC spectrum IMO. IMO it considers the possibilities IMO that R* may just not release GTA V on PC IMO. IMO, even if I do try to start a mini-discussion IMO, IMO my views and thesis IMO would just get lost and drowned in the deep sea of pages and random replies that pile on by the minute IMO. IMO I do not have an ego problem IMO, I just think this pessimistic theory deserves its own thread IMO.

 

^ I need to stop mocking you, Wolf.

 

tl;dr

While the PC discussion thread tends to be more optimistic towards a potential PC port, this thread considers the negative outcome of WHAT IF we don't get a PC version. While not the best, this discussion therefore deserves its own topic

The thread title is nonsensical and I also think that this should have been asked in the PC thread.

I'll answer it anyway. I'll kill my kittens, every single one of them, I won't even feel remorse after killing them.

But the problem is, they are going to release it on the PC because it wouldn't make any sense if they didn't.

Stop mocking me? Why should you? I only am going to give a full-on IMO tirade, IMO.

If there never was going to be one, I'd simply suck it up and accept it that not everything comes to PC. Disappointing, yes, but I can't make an amazing video game a part of my life.
