I created a support ticket as a suggestion for improvement which was asking for more realistic lasting effects of these substances, say 3 hours in game time instead of a few minutes. I know it's a minor thing, but I assume it's an easy enough amendment to the game and would really like to see a change. I would appreciate it if you guys could do the same and perhaps get some attention of Rockstar.

 

It's the least of their worries, and perhaps yours, but a guy can hope!

I always find that I shoot better after a few beers and that I drive better after a bowl.

Obviously you're not my target audience, but I think you could gather from "created a support ticket as a suggestion for improvement" that I think it would be an improvement.

Why not just drink or smoke while playing?

Like the idea man hadn't thought of that, although I did think the effects were a bit short lived.

Don't like this idea, only roleplayers drink Pisswaser. I only smoke my cigarette when I make a cool explosion.

It's a genuine question though. That the developers would ask themselves as well if they were to consider it.

 

How would that translate into gameplay ?

If it's purely fluff and serves no purpose other than "realism", then it probably would be difficult wanting to put any resources into it.

If it has purpose, then would it help or distract from the main experience ? Would it really fit in? Is it impactful enough to justify its addition? Etc...

 

I'm not bashing your idea, I'm just being critical. If you have a valid reason on how it could enhance the experience MORE than being a "realistic" improvement, then go for it. But from what you've said here, it doesn't seem to go much further than that.

It is a valid question. Maybe you should give posting a break if you are unable to see beyond your nose.

The few lucky times I've jumped to Trevor and he is smoking the meth pipe in his trailer, that seems to be the longest lasting effect drug in the game.

And, I agree that the effects of alcohol/smoke should be longer lasting. If they really want people to try and possibly enjoy the novelty, why not make it a little more worthwhile ?

Experiencing the game world with these altered effects would make it entertaining/refreshing. Isn't that a reason people do these things to begin with? 3 hours in game time is still a short amount of time, it wouldn't be game breaking (unless the high effect is game breaking on ps3/360). It would add a level of immersion that appears to be an easy patch, that's all I'm saying.

I always thought the drunk effect was much better in IV and RDR. Don't think my char has fallen over once while drunk in V. Would like the ability to fight while drunk too, would make those brawl deathmatches much more fun.

You're insane if you think it would take any significant resources to extend an already existing game animation. As well, the point is realism. Our characters must have some pretty extreme metabolic disorders to be eschewing the effects of drugs and alcohol so quickly.

of all the things they could spend time on improving, you want to be high and drunk for longer?

I guess you didn't read to completion. Anyway, could it really be more involved than changing a value to extend the time?

It'll never happen because Rockstar doesn't want to encourage that behavior (DUI).

And yes, I know this game lets you shoot people and run over prostitutes; but you're not going to do that anyways because you already know harming people is morally wrong. You're probably more inclined to drink and drive because you've done it in GTA successfully before without a scratch.

Ever chug a few Pisswasers at the screen before a race?  You take off going all over the road.  Guy behind me probably thought to himself "Is this guy drunk...!?".

 

lol.  Yeah--  he was.

Yeah switching over to IV and seeing him fall over if you went to run made me laugh, it's quite stale in this game unfortunately.

 

Definitely improvements needed, it's not particularly flash.

I thought the system would be upgraded and longer lasting than GTA IV

Or you can go out with some friends ( considering you have any) and get all f*cked up IRL. And not give a f*ck about your pixels not being drunk.

This. There was an article about it as well right after the game launched, but the chances of me finding it on my phone while at work are slim to none. If someone has a link, it would be great.

Also, before someone says something, in states where some form of marijuana is legal, driving under the influence of it is a punishable crime. (Don't ask my opinion on the matter, lol)

So you only roleplay when you think it's cool?

I dont understand, your profile says you're 21,but you post like a 13 year old, that's too young to experiment with drugs in real life
