I would much rather that the game held my hand then be extremely difficult. If you played some of the 3D era games you would know what I'm saying. They made me want to rip my hair off. Not only that but there were NO checkpoints.
The game was practically holding your hand the whole time, especially thanks to the checkpoints (thankfully I always retried the missions from the beginning after each death instead of starting from the last checkpoint.I think the point of that was to encourage you to explore. It would be no fun if they already showed you everything in the game with the missions.Then the game would feel empty. I actually like it that way because then when I explore there is a chance I might see something new.
-There's too much underutilized space. We have a prison, military base, several small islands, and many nature trailsYou know you could just skip.
It's sad when I want to taxi everywhere because it takes so long to get where you want to go.
First of all, the economy is much improved from IV. Secondly, that is what I am saying. There is no official best GTA. Everyone has different tastes. So there could be someone who thought GTA V exceeded expectations, while another thinking of it as a disappointment. So I am trying to say that Rockstar couldn't possibly have reached everyone's expectations. Even when VI is comes out, there will be a group of people whose tastes Rockstar won't meet. There was no way GTA V could have been a perfect or superior-in-almost-everything type of GTA. It was always going to just to be a good GTA with features that are amazing to some, but faults for others.
See that is my point. You were expecting the GTA's of all GTA and you need to realize that there is no such thing. "GTA's of all GTA" is a very vague term. There is no such thing as the best GTA. Every GTA has its own faults and merits. Since GTA is different to everyone, what is one person's ultimate GTA is different from another's. Just look at some people loving IV's driving and others hating it. So expecting an ultimate GTA is an impossible wish.
Now if you had just expected a pretty good GTA that has both faults and positives, you would be less disappointed.
Nope, sorry, I disagree. To some people, a certain people, a certain GTA might just be best GTA. You cannot dictate what defines that, it's down to personal and subjective opinions. I still personally think that Vice City was the best GTA ever.
My big expectations for GTA V were realistic and valid. The game looked amazing graphically in the screenshots, the map was huge, there were 3 protagonists for the first time, the previews promised so much stuff, like big heists involving detailed planning, a new and extensive 'economy system', and Rockstar claimed they had learned from so many of their mistakes from GTA IV that made many people critical of IV before, and were set on making improvements on them.
Go ahead and defend Rockstar all you want to and blame me as the customer, it don't matter to me. All I know is that I really feel I was led to believe that V was gonna be one incredible game in either every way or almost every way. I followed the previews and pre-hype closely and everything pointed to that. But V could not even manage to excel in areas over IV, in addition to not meeting some of my expectations. Yes, I still really liked playing V, but the hard fact for me, is that is failed to meet my expectations, when by it every means to do so.
And btw don't listen to the previews too much, they hype the guts out of every game. A preview can make the worst game ever sound good.
Once again,Great Comment.but when you said there is not "best GTA" although you were right cus Every GTA since it 1997 inception have been great but GTA 3 Revolutionised and Popularised the Genre Forever.that no one can deny not even SA Fanboys cus during GTA 3 10th year Anniversary in 2011,every developers didnt deny it aswell.
