Uh, no. Sorry that R* didn't go "nostalgia band" mode and fulfill your 90s gang fantasies with this latest installment but as it happens, really nobody cares that the game wasn't, as you so elegantly put it, "hood focused." I for one am not excited by the idea of running around and pointlessly shooting at people in multi-colored bandanas for "reputation and respect" while doing menial tasks that reward little pay and achieve close to nothing.

sorry i rather play as a professional criminal like Michael making real money...then no offense, a hood character making baby dollars..

 

 

the reason people love the mafia more then street gangs, is that they still are the dominant criminal orginization in the world...the Ndragheta is one if not the most powerful criminal orginization in the world along with the cartels.. It controls the European drug scene.. and makes billions a year

 

the russian mafia is one of the most powerful to, as they have the most sophisticated cyber criminals... and their leader is on the fbi most wanted list

 

people want to play as those characters, making big league dollars...

you get so many people that whine about it not having a hood focus or hood atmosphere...even though that wasn't what R* was aiming for...irritating to say the least..

lol.. if anything that is why people liked it. no body cares about the hood, or the idiots proud to be in it.

you can't do that unless your a ghetto gangster in gta? huh.. I always though that was kind of GTA's primal instincts, but I could be wrong.

Firstly, I'm not dissapointed that there's no hood sh*t, I'm dissapointed that Franklin's story was promoted as being heavily involved in gangbaing, when it wasn't.

Secondly, greenrock will find any excuse to have a go at people over Franklin and hood sh*t. For example, I said I liked the writing in ending A and B better than ending C. And then he goes on to call me a "Franklin dick rider". Well I'm sorry you closet racist f*ckwit, you act as if you think I despise the non-existent ending D where Franklin dies.

In the end I'm not into hood stuff either, but the way greenrock goes on about hating it, it's almost evident that he doesn't like African American people. I bet if there was an Asian gangbanging story he wouldn't complain. But then again, what's the point in this rant, considering whenever I prove greenrock wrong or see through his bullsh*t he acts as if I don't exist.

So you'd rather run around pointlessly shooting at people in multi-colored suits while doing menial tasks that reward you nothing and achieve nothing? :lol:

If you did know anything about real gang bangers you'd know that the mafia and street gangs really go hand in hand. They're not that much different from each other. Today's mafia are just romanticized grimey street thugs of the vanilla-flavored variety. :whuh: That being said, I'd like to play all of those things you listed too... maybe not a cyber criminal.. but some mafia characters wouldn't be a negative by any means in my book. That's why we have three characters, to capture each angle of the criminal spectrum and demonstrate how their overarching principles are the same despite their differences.

I'm not sure how many times it needs to be reiterated but I don't see too many people complaining about the story, there may be a few around here but I don't see them, people are just tired of seeing the gangs get shafted. Even the people who don't care for the gangs should still be outraged that Michael, the professional criminal you all love, still has no criminal side missions either. Trevor is the only one that does and even his are minimal. But I mean hey, if you're one of those people that want to play as a retired criminal in a video game and not have optional criminal side missions in the game because it will detract from your ability to jerk off to the fluidity of the storyline then I guess this really is a masterpiece isn't it?

That's been GTA's problem ever since IV. On one hand we want the edgy fun of the old gameplay, but on the other hand we want it to feel more character consistent, because everything has gotten more realistic. We can't have both. In TBoGT they let loose of everything having to make sense, and it made IV shine.

I'd definitely find it much more fun and interesting running around shooting at rival gang members wearing multi-colored bandanas for 'reputation' and 'respect' in a gang war, or trying hard to make money selling drugs on the streets of the hood, than doing stupid and boring errands for federal agents (when I'm supposed to be criminal trying to get rich) AND with little or no reward for it. And I'd definitely find it more fun than doing yoga, triathlon and that Strangers and Freaks bullsh*t.

 

And believe me, people do care about this feature just because you do not, it don't mean the majority are with you on that.

In TBoGT they let loose of everything having to make sense, and it made IV shine.

The thing is, in my view at least, the things a lot of people are asking for is consistent. Edgy fun and great story are not mutually exclusive things. For example, Johnny in TLAD did not like getting into beef with other gangs at all but it didn't feel out of place to have it in the game and it felt natural when he was calling AoD deadbeats despite their long truce. People tend to forget that they're playing human beings, you don't just go from being a street gangster to some made heist man and suddenly that street gang mentality is washed away without a trace.. that's some robotic b-movie script sh*t. Even Franklin would indulge in Lamar's antics at times, such as when he was kidnapping D even though he was moving away from all of that. You can make a stronger argument that Franklin hallucinating a dog and then going parachute jumping or running with weird ladies in the forest is more outlandish than gang wars considering he actually is a gang member and never demonstrated any interest in parachuting and running wild in the boonies in normal gameplay.

I don't know maybe I'm the crazy one, I prefer to play the game that actually has engaging and fun activities in it even if they weren't 100% sensible rather than not play it at all and mentally masturbate over how the lack of optional side missions makes the game's story just that much more consistent. Yeah, the game is so great that I don't even want to play it. :lol:

The problem with V is that there is not any substance. We have multiple protagonists with barely any character development, we have multiple villains with almost no development, and then we have a dry story that went from great to horrible once we met Trevor.

 

The ending to the game is lackluster, and I feel R* became too lazy considering the time frame they had. They took away too many good features the previous games had and decided to implement new features that obviously no one would want. Yoga? C'mon now, no way should they have thought the customers would like that. Rockstar had five years to create this game and only gave us around 70ish missions split between three characters, and some of those missions were just buying gear for the heists.

 

Oh and the heist..... It didn't even seem like there were many heists thinking back. Maybe five, and out of those five, one of them you didn't even get paid. Before the game came out Rockstar specifically stated that having three protagonists gave you different options on what you wanted to do for some of the missions. But once you play the game you find out there's really no option, you're prompted to switch characters almost everytime.

 

I mean the laziness on Rockstar's end feature-wise is ridiculous.

I explained something similar to this earlier to someone either on this thread or another one. I've stated this many times before to certain people on here who keep on saying that same ol' sh*t about Franklin not needing any gang wars or more hood stuff, because "he's trying to get away from the gang life", or "why would he still be involved in gangs now that suddenly he's making millions in heists with Michael and Trevor ? ". It's like they just don't understand how that sh*t just don't work like that in real-life, it's a bit too far fetched, even for GTA's standards. And on top of that, Franklin is still a gang member, there is nothing in the game to show that declared himself totally gang-free. I just don't understand why some people on here think it's implausible for Franklin to still involved in gangs, when he's still either a gang member or closely affiliated with gangs, it's so baffling.

This is what's lacking in V as well. Franklin is tooooooo soft. Trevor is tooooooo over the top.

SA and V are two different games in two different Universes and both have different Storyline Crime themes.The only thing that makes the both the same is that they are both in one Family sharing the name GTA.

And then he goes on to call me a "Franklin dick rider". Well I'm sorry you closet racist f*ckwit, you act as if you think I despise the non-existent ending D where Franklin dies.

In the end I'm not into hood stuff either, but the way greenrock goes on about hating it, it's almost evident that he doesn't like African American people. I bet if there was an Asian gangbanging story he wouldn't complain. But then again, what's the point in this rant, considering whenever I prove greenrock wrong or see through his bullsh*t he acts as if I don't exist.

@ greenrock

 

So what if Michael helps Franklin make so much money ? It clearly was not that much fun to many others was it ? Running around doing busllh*t jobs and errands for the Feds and government agents like some b*tch for half the game was not exactly everyone's idea of fun for playing a GTA story.

Oh, and your so quick to pull this f*cking race card greenrock. Oh I like ending A and B, must mean I hate Michael and Trevor and love Franklin, despite no matter what I do he lives anyway...

Really, at no point did I say I ever hated Michael and Trevor for being white (hell, at no point did I ever say I hated Michael). If anything they're better protagonists than Franklin was, simply because sweet f*ck all effort was put into Franklin.

But I don't think I'm going to sway your stupidly narrow minded opinion in the end anyway. I hate Franklin. Hate Trevor. Hate ending C. Love dark and realistic endings (which are what A and B are).

EDIT: Oh and I forgot to mention the fact that my two favourite protagonists, Niko and Tommy (if you were too dense to tell from my profile name), were "such" amazing black gangbangers, in addition to the fact that Jim Morrison from my profile pic was obviously the biggest gangster rap star to ever live. /sarcasm

This is what's lacking in V as well. Franklin is tooooooo soft. Trevor is tooooooo over the top.

Damn, I miss real fun sh*t like this in GTA. Gettin' strapped, rollin' out in the hood and blastin' on fools. I when I mean I miss this 'sh*t' I don't just mean hood stuff, I mean all the past explosive action-packed fun stuff from the III-era days, and even GTA IV and EFLC. 

 

I've not played SA for so many years now, this pic makes me wanna dust off my PS2 and play it again !

 

My nostalgia goggles are on now, and I'm proud.

Firstly, I'm not dissapointed that there's no hood sh*t, I'm dissapointed that Franklin's story was promoted as being heavily involved in gangbaing, when it wasn't.

Secondly, greenrock will find any excuse to have a go at people over Franklin and hood sh*t. For example, I said I liked the writing in ending A and B better than ending C. And then he goes on to call me a "Franklin dick rider". Well I'm sorry you closet racist f*ckwit, you act as if you think I despise the non-existent ending D where Franklin dies.

In the end I'm not into hood stuff either, but the way greenrock goes on about hating it, it's almost evident that he doesn't like African American people. I bet if there was an Asian gangbanging story he wouldn't complain. But then again, what's the point in this rant, considering whenever I prove greenrock wrong or see through his bullsh*t he acts as if I don't exist.

Spoiler

your a hypocrite says the man that hates michael and trevor cause their white
Oh, and your so quick to pull this f*cking race card greenrock. Oh I like ending A and B, must mean I hate Michael and Trevor and love Franklin, despite no matter what I do he lives anyway...

Really, at no point did I say I ever hated Michael and Trevor for being white (hell, at no point did I ever say I hated Michael). If anything they're better protagonists than Franklin was, simply because sweet f*ck all effort was put into Franklin.

But I don't think I'm going to sway your stupidly narrow minded opinion in the end anyway. I hate Franklin. Hate Trevor. Hate ending C. Love dark and realistic endings (which are what A and B are).

 

they sure are! they also ruin everything you worked for the entire story..... how is either of those any more realistic than option C? lol... Especially after the mission you just did before hand, fighting off the merryweather and everyone else leading you to your next targets: the ones you have been doing free work for and their bitch all game.

god your depressing.

not that I agree with OP, but I damn sure don't see how you came up with that emo ending after playing the entire game...

OT: I personally know more than a handful of people who used to have some sort of gang affiliation, you know what happens? they grow up. It really is that simple, unless you make it out to be harder. If you got yourself that deep in, you can get yourself out.

I'm not trying to turn this into a debate about the ending. Greenrock just thinks that because I like ending A and B that I hate Michael and Trevor, and want to suck Franklins dick. When in fact had ending C been Franklin's head on the chopping block, that would have been the ending for me.

Uh, no. Sorry that R* didn't go "nostalgia band" mode and fulfill your 90s gang fantasies with this latest installment but as it happens, really nobody cares that the game wasn't, as you so elegantly put it, "hood focused." I for one am not excited by the idea of running around and pointlessly shooting at people in multi-colored bandanas for "reputation and respect" while doing menial tasks that reward little pay and achieve close to nothing. 

You're doing pretty much worse than that working for the FIB
 
sorry i rather play as a professional criminal like Michael making real money...then no offense, a hood character making baby dollars..
 
 
the reason people love the mafia more then street gangs, is that they still are the dominant criminal orginization in the world...the Ndragheta is one if not the most powerful criminal orginization in the world along with the cartels.. It controls the European drug scene.. and makes billions a year
 
the russian mafia is one of the most powerful to, as they have the most sophisticated cyber criminals... and their leader is on the fbi most wanted list
 
people want to play as those characters, making big league dollars... 
You forget that the Russian Bratva is merely a collection of russian gangs that are merely organized in a sophisticated way... and the cartels, who do you think does the dirty work for them? Gangs... a lot of cartels have deep gang connections with local barrios and such... and you say street gangs only make small change? Bro, you have no idea the kinda sh*t goes down In cali or how much moneypeople make due to the drug trade....

Franklin Clinton was "hood" related? He crying over a bitch, no that ain't my nigga, he couldn't even shoot, no that ain't my nigga, my nigga, my nigga nigga. f*ck yo'hood and give me a casino to gamble in, that my kinda hood my nigga!!!!!!


Lol tha f*ck??...

Anyways, I don't think people would hate the whole game simply because it wasn't hood focused, people are just dissappointed at the fact that Franklin didn't really have a proper background with his gangbanging days, people were expecting(not wanted) to see abit more hood missions then we got, but Franklins life moved by so fast that one minute he is in the hood, and the next he is in a big ass House on the hills.

But really that couldn't have affected whole game now...

One thing, don't laugh at me, but what does IMO mean?

It's not that the game wasn't hood focused.  It's that it wasn't focused, at all, period.

I was just taking the piss because everyone's up and down about hood4life, but Franklin had worse shooting skills and the only 'hood' thing I hated was when you blasting Ballerz or Aztec or Locos the f*ckijg cops come it's f*cked, f*ck the hood sh*t. ni**ers be dying on a block they don't own, you renting fool!
IMO = in my opinion.

true...but their is loose connections between the various russian gangs

 

same with the ndragheta, they are seperated into various clans, but they are pretty much connected to each other
