I don't know how to describe it, but since GTA V's release, to me, the weapons don't have much...I don't know, weight?
I don't know if it's the textures, the sounds, or what, but they all feel pretty much the same. By default, they're completely gray. Even with the color tints the rest of the weapon is pretty bland. Compared to IV or even Max Payne 3 the weapons don't seem that detailed this time around. Or maybe they do, I'm not sure.
Or it could be the sounds. The firing, the reloading sounds, the cocking clicks - all those seem "off?"
I don't know, I just can't describe it but I was hoping someone else would have a similar idea or feeling. I mean when playing IV I could feel a big difference when using the AK-47 or the M4. Or when I used to Glock or the Desert Eagle. But between the AK-47, M4, and that third machine gun, they all practically look and feel the same. The models, textures, and colors are pretty bland looking in-game.
Still, I'm not sure if that's it. Something about the weapons just doesn't seem right in V. This has been on my mind for a while, but I just haven't been able to put my finger on it.
