They were so fun in tbogt with parachuting,driving, and boating. Not saying that the type in V is horrible, but I thought we would unlock more fun ways to race as we complete each event. Instead it's the same swim, run, bike crap. This is a crime game called grand theft AUTO for crying out loud. What the f*ck happened to rockstar with all the poor decision making in this game.

With gta v having more types of vehicles and terrain than gta4 you would think they would do something more creative for the types of challenges in each event. I don't even think there are any air races of any kind in the game. This is really disappointing.

It's like the team that developed this game were a group toddlers. What do you guys think.

Parachuting is in V. So are races and seashark races. And, not to mention, Off-road races. What the hell are you talking about?

I'm talking about the triathlons, the only challenges are running, swimming and biking. They could have had different challenges for each triathlon. For example. Drive to the plane, fly to a certain point, and parachute to the finish line. Or land a chopper on the mountain, bike down the mountain, and boat to the finish line.
They should have had fun stuff like that, instead of having the same 3 things, in the same order, in all 3 triathlons.

I'm fine with them being just swimming, cycling and running.  However, that last triathlon is ridiculous.  The idiot who decided that a nearly 30 minute triathlon should be in the game deserves to be fired.

Guys, he mentioned Ballad of Gay Tony in his first post, which has triathlons as well, but they consisted of parachuting, driving, and boating as opposed to running, swimming, and cycling. He's simply saying that he would prefer for those triathlons to have been in the game. I don't know how that could have been ANY more clear.

I'd be down for TBOGT style triathlons too though.

There wasn't any triathlons in TBOGT. They were called races. Switching from vehicle to vehicle doesn't mean triathlon.

Halfway through the bike section I accidently tried to turn my headlights on unknowing it quits the triathlon.

Wow, some people are arseholes. In TBOGT there were these special little races where you started out with a parachute, landed on a boat, raced your way to land and completed it with a car, complete with nitro. The game called these events triathlons, this is what the OP is saying, and is saying that the TBoGT events were more fun, which I agree with (though I don't agree with the general hostility towards R* over such decision). Though, it's more of a case of "why not both" for me.

There was a mission called triathlon that went from 1.parachute to 2.boat to 3.car. Three, hence the 'tri' in triathlon.

Still, it doesn't technically count as a triathlon. 

 

Definition of triathlon:

 

"an athletic contest consisting of three different events, typically swimming, cycling, and long-distance running."

 

Driving a car around is not athletic.

I agree, that's what I was saying, they should have had both styles of triathlons and made better use of the resources they had in gta v.

I know a triathlon is a sporting thing and they were called races in tbogt. Gta usually has it's own [fun] spin on things like this. That's exactly what they did in tbogt. And they probably didn't call them triathlons because of the fact you stated above, but we all know that's what they were meant to be.

Do you even know what a triathlon is? I'm guessing no.

I accidently hit a pedestrian with the bike in the finish line crowd.

 

Never again.

You all need to get over yourselves topic starter asked a simple question and because it involved questioning rockstars methods you all do the fanboy thing and attack him personally. Why don't you read his post before you try and look smart you know it all's. Most people in this thread are making themselves look dumb beyond belief

 

I for one agree with topic starter their should of been the option to do both. They have a huge detailed map why not use it ? Have 10 events 5 being traditional and 5 being TBOGT style that way everyone wins.

 

I also hate how theirs like 5 car ( streets races) I was hoping their would be a car race that takes you around the whole map and you switch between cars during the event. That would be insane. You could drive trucks, Sports cars ect. each car would be suited to the area you're racing in.  Remember vice citys race around the entire town that costs like $50,0000 to enter ? they need a race like that !

Yeah The Franchise is called Grand Theft Auto but we got a game more focused on Bikes,TLAD and everyone loves it,so why is it just GTA 5 we get all these complains.and btw you could do Car Races when playing as Franklin.

To be fair, driving cars is fun, running and biking about is bollocks. Applies to both GTA and real life.

 

The only thing I gained from the GTA V triathlons was a stronger, sore thumb. Motorised triathlons would've been a lot better, especially with 5's water physics for the boat part.

They WERE called Triathlons in The Ballad of Gay Tony, for those who are saying they weren't. A lot of you people are making yourselves look like assholes attempting to look so matter of fact about this stuff.

OP's got a great idea, it'd be nice to see BOGT's version of Triathlons in the game through the next DLC, It's bound to happen, as I felt like boats weren't really given much purpose in the game, and that would be a good way to give them more use.

It`s probably the same cum guzzling queen that decided catch up and slip streaming were also great ideas.

They were great in TBoGT, parachuting directly into the boat you want, lauching the boat onto the shore when you get to the cars, choosing which car you want and then you had nitro boosts for the car section.

True,but instead of Car theft Side-missions in GTA 4,there were knowns as Bike Theft,plus we couldnt do a race with Cars like in Previous GTAs (GTA 5 included) instead it a bike race.Every Thing about TLAD was Biker Focused.and it was the 2nd Gang Theme game in the Franchise after SA.it was also the only game not just in GTA but in the Openworld Genre,that shows that Cars arent only real deal.even the bike Physics were retooled just only for TLAD.God I Love it.

Fired, or forced to partake in a real triathlon, and shot at if they stop at any point before the finish (ok possibly harsh but my fingers still haven't recovered from the half hour one)

Well they changed it to mimic real life triathlons. Plus I think they put it in to help the stamina stat whereas in TBoGT we did have that stat so that may be a reason why they changed them.
