@General

 

Do you perhaps think one day maybe, just maybe, you might be capable of letting at least one positive thread go by without having to bring it down with your same old recycled contributions...

 

Not enough gangbanging - we get it

Not enough drug dealing - we get it

Didn't like the government criminality aspect of the story (despite heists being the main theme) - we get it

Don't like Trevor - we get it

Don't like >insert other generic element we've heard you ramble on about for the past 3 months here< - we get it

 

Do you think we've forgotten with the 4,892 times you've reminded us?

Nostalgia comes with time my friend.  give it a year or two or three and the second you hear "skeletons by stevie wonder", you'll immediately reflect back to gtaV.

 

I noticed it's already starting with me a bit

I have serious nostalgia whenever I hear 'Ogdens Gone Flake' (or whatever it's called - song from the 1st trailer) as well as 'Skeletons', but when GTA VI arrives, I'm not going to be all..."herp derp worst game ever..not enough yoga..f*ck you lazy cockstar...etc etc".

Welcome to the club. I am the kind of person that judges everything on it's own merit and I hate it when artists and developers repeat and rehash the same things so I loved it from the start and it only gets better with time.

GTA V is continuously evolving. Rockstar hasn't delivered the final build yet but as a launch title (GTAO later updates) that changed both online and SP in 3 months. In 2014 those substantial changes will bring it closer to a great and unique title in GTA.

GOTY maybe, game of the century? Lol :p. I really enjoyed V for the days leading up to online, then i barely touched it since, and now it feels kinda like a chore to play the game lol.  I sitll have the same complaints I had in the first weeks like dying too easy, i went 40 MPH and crashed into another car pulling out, instant death for me with full health. Loved the journey from start to finish of story mode though. I got this at midnight after standing in line along with the guide and I don't regret it at all.

Do you remember when people whined about IV not having countryside and now they whine that V has too much? The same thing will happen with interiors and people will complain when there is no yoga like they do with Roman's calls.

Maybe Yoga is not the best point, Yoga is really sth R* could have left out from the game, it doesn't add much if anything to the experience. Sorry but it's true I think.

I agree but when the next game comes around and it is there watch people whine.

I will support you on that - those who whined about GTA IV not having any countryside had no real reason to complain, as the game was entirely set in the immediate New York/New Jersey metro area, which meant that countryside would have been effectively pointless. That was quite an uneccessary complaint in my view. GTA IV really did not need any countryside. It could have done with more suburban areas and a slight bigger map area for parts of Alderney, Broker and Dukes, that is my only real complaint about GTA IV's map. But for most part, IV's map was fine and big enough. 

 

I can assure you that NO ONE will be missing yoga in the future, if it is omitted from the next GTA title. If anything people will look back and laugh at Rockstar's such ridiculous decision to include it and promote like it was some great, exciting feature.

Yep, I'm willing to bet my left testicle on it.

 

We'll also be hearing how the driving is too hard and how R* have sacrificed fun for realism.."bring bck V driving".

 

This is why I think deep down, R* secretly loathe San Andreas for what it's done to a certain segment of the fanbase. Up to, and including the release of that game, everybody could just shut the f*ck up and enjoy GTA.

 

But ever since, it has created an army of spoiled entitled brats who won't be happy until they get every single thing their own way - exactly how an entitled brat acts.

The only thing I wish was in IV was Atlantic City. Since they included NJ why not include that? If you look past the Casinos it is certainly crime ridden and gritty enough.

 

I never thought people would miss Roman's annoying calls but people complain about it on this forum. Many people here are like an ex that doesn't want you but gets mad all of a sudden when they can't have you anymore.

I have absolutely zero doubt in my mind. 

 

I know this might be hard for you to swallow as you're clearly a huge SA fanboy as evidenced by all the SA features missing in V contributing to your hate for the game, but the amount of kicking and screaming from the SA kids after IV released, is something that would have pissed them off just as much as it pissed me off.

I am sure they are proud of what they achieved with SA but they probably feel boxed in by it.

I don't feel any different. It's the same as before but it has absolutely nothing to do with nostalgia. The ridiculous, over-aggressive AI, thel locked interriors, the cut content from SP, to the fact that I can't buy safehouses, or wear the clothes I prefer, is still present and it's most likely not going to be addressed. The game is filled with such misses.

I'm not disputing that. R* should feel hugely proud for what San Andreas achieved for it's time. It was a massive game, no doubt about it, and is my 3rd favourite GTA behind V and IV.

 

While that is all good, they probably felt forced and pressured into bringing back alot of SA's features after the backlash at IV. Yet they are still facing a backlash from annoying f*cking SA fanboys for not including every single feature from that 9 year old game.

 

They're bound to be a little frustrated, no?

I'm not up in arms about lacking features. IV was a GTA stripped to its bone and yet it's my favorite game in the series. The problem with V is that it tries to be both IV and SA at the same time, failing to live up to both. And it doesn't have it's own "thing", something to truly put it apart from other games in the series, and by extension, from other R* titles such as RDR and MP3. Protagonist switching is unique, of course, but it's not much more than IV + Episodes without loading. Heist planning was underdeveloped and underused and...what else is there?

 

V is the first game in the series that felt quite rehash-y to me. Like it's nothing but "Best of Rockstar Games". I played SA, I played IV, I played RDR and MP3. Playing a game that smashes them all together is great, but I've experienced them all individually already.

I have to agree with the OP this is such an amazing game, every time i put the disc in and play i still get amazed by how stunning the world looks. the visuals are so clear. I love just jumping in my car day or night and cruising around the map. I am still not at 100% yet but i am loving working my way towards it.

Well I genuinely feel for you that you're not getting the same enjoyment out of this game that most of us are.

 

Saying that the character switching is "not much more than IV + Episodes without loading" is a pretty undermining outlook of the whole mechanic, and how fluidly well it works on a game of this scale on such ancient hardware. It might not be that revolutionary for you, but it was certainly a hugely innovative and ambitious step in the GTA series for me. And to pull it off so successfully, makes it even more impressive.

 

And yes, in a way they did try to be SA in regards to some of the features they brought back. But for me they were done much better:

 

Car Customising - hugely improved with the selection of mods

Countryside - though lack of forests, is extremely beautiful to travel around and enjoy, as well as the introduction of animals

Flying - planes are much more responsive, and generally feelmore fun to fly

Character Customising - like cars, a much larger selection

 

So I struggle to see how they failed here. As for trying to be IV: while the driving is certainly subjective, nobody can deny the shooting mechanics have been hugely overhauled and improved from IV.

 

You're entitled to your opinion, and I more than respect it. I just wanted to address a few points.

Ah, amazing moment when a person begins to appreciate the game. Well c'mon, General Lee, Failman, Pinky, see and accept the game's beauty instead of whining, hating, and trying to express your feeling while thinking that no one has heard them before.

Call me a fan boy if you will but Rockstar has continued to impress me with every game I've played of there's since GTA 3. I've truly loved each GTA more than the last and every time I'm always skeptical that they can top the last game but some how they always do. 

 

In my opinion Rockstar is probably the best developer out there. Not only is GTA probably the best video game series ever but they're also responsible for Bully, Manhunt, The Red Dead series, The Max Payne series, The Warriors, Midnight Club, and Thrasher Skate and Destroy. 

 

I can't name even one other developer that comes anywhere close to having a portfolio that epic.

Well most people on here expected much more interiors than there are in the game now, fun and engaging crime side missions like gang wars, gang activity, and drug-dealing, car theft, armed back-up, other stuff like gambling, and being able to choose and buy our own safehouse properties. Now please do tell me what would have been so unrealistic about expecting to see all of that in GTA V, when GTA IV actually contains some of this stuff which V does not have ?? 
 
I don't see what was exactly so unrealistic about many of expectations seen on these forums leading up until GTA V's release. Every now and then on here, I see people like you keep saying this sh*t, but it's just baseless, and unfounded.

You were expecting all that, along with everything else, on this generation of 8 year old hardware? The game is barely running as it is.
 
I thought the lack of interiors was disappointing at first, but what could we have really done in them? Just walk in, look around for a minute, and never return again.  Gambling is another feature that would have been fun for less than 3 minutes. If I remember correctly, Rockstar confirmed purchasing safehouse properties wasn't in the game nearly a year before launch anyway. If you were still expecting it after that, you were being unrealistic.
