This should be interesting. 

 

I'll go first 

 

No excuse for no Nightclubs.

 

No excuse for no Fast Food Interiors. 

 

No excuse for inaccessible Casino interior upon release. 

 

No excuse for Yoga mini game (nobody wanted that chit.) 

 

...Now you

Car insurance.  It should be the same way in singleplayer as online.  By the way, you should remove the "Inb4fanboys" comment at the end, because you're giving them the bait,

I was about to say Online until I read 'SP' at the end.

 

Insurance, interiors like restaurants and nightclubs, no big and many garages/safehouses like in VC and SA.

They have no excuse for ending the story so abruptly. I mean it ain't even a cliffhanger where there's at least some suspense or some feeling that the story goes on. The ending here feels just about as awkward as a rob schneider b-movie.

EDIT sorry you said SP Cops 'n Crooks.

 

SP was pretty complete I felt but could have done with more missions. Why not when you've invested all that dev time in building such a huge city and neighboring county? Perhaps there is lots of paid for DLC to come in the next fiscal?!

Yoga fits into the story perfectly, so I don't know what you're getting at with that...

 

Anyway, cars not being able to stay started if you get out of them.

Nightclubs? There is an excuse, there is nothing related to them.

 

Fast food? There are 24/7 markets all around that you can rob and buy food at.

 

And yoga is related to the storyline...

A lot of the features from Online should've made it over to Single Player.. the inventory system, quick GPS, insurance, actions, all the weapon skins from online should've been in single player, etc..

-Not being able to crouch.

-Franklin not being able to go to his old safehouse after getting the new one.

-Cars magically disappearing from the garage. Really, it was never an issue in any GTA.

-No insurance.

-No inventory.

-Michael's special sucks ass. They could have made him being able to move faster than the rest of the world.

-Some interiors being mission exclusive.

I'm just going to assume you've never set foot on Hollywood or Sunset. Clubs are noticeably absent, and seeing that it's set in a fictional LA this is a big miss.

Keeping my car running was a weird one too, especially considering it works randomly. I hate burning F's special meter waiting for the damn thing to start when I'm in a hurry to leave the scene.

And yet you both reply.

 

 

 

OT: The inventory/quick GPS would be cool in SP, and there's no excuse for that not to be there. As with the car insurance - spending hours finding that car (come one we've all had it) spending thousands modding it up, just to have it disappear/get blown up is frustrating - it's a dated mechanic; Saints Row has always had your cars permanent - they respawn at your garage. Online's system is perfect, and yet it does not transfer.

 

Nightclubs would fit perfectly in LOS SANTOS - y'know, LA/HOLLYWOOD. Imagine getting in one, hanging out with celebs, perhaps a famous booty-call. As Tequilala is a purchasable interior, i do not understand why club management didn't return from BOGT. Perhaps there are technical limitations that made this an axed feature (remember the guy getting thrown out in the trailer ?) but when you have a massive ocean floor which imho, is pointless, i question that.

 

Interiors (see above point): again, Tequilala, Lifeinvader - these are all existing in the game, so why are they not accessible ? Same applied in BOGT with Bahama Mamas - they even showed that in prerelease and that too is not enterable. Eateries, apartment blocks etc. Hell, even more of those steps down to the subway (from GTA IV's Easton district, appearing in Three Leaf Clover) would make great chase routes. With heists, i thought we'd see plenty of such thing.

 

Gambling - it was great in RDR, was in SA and thought it would be cool to return seeing as A there's an ACTIVE casino (Trevor gets thrown out for "Not counting cards; I was cheating") and B the game's about money. My reason for that: R* wanted to limit the money you got because of the end game.

 

Friends/dates - I miss this from IV. Sure the system needed tightening but that's all. Ditch the phone calls, and the waiting "time" and just hang with a friend, go bowling, pool, air hockey, comedy club (all of which are missing from V, and I am disappointed in that; playing tennis gets boring fast, and getting drunk is over so quick it's pointless)....

 

Unlockables - why oh why is everything thrown at you at the end? Why not have them unlocked - like 99.9% of other games - throughout? Finish the MotoX race: outfit unlocked. Finish Monkey Business, scuba suit unlocked. (where are the flippers on the scuba outfit?)

 

I'm sure there are many reasons people will claim and r* would cite, but i think they left out too much to make V perfect. I imagine what it would have been like if they were in, but it's all subjective. I don't care about the Jetpack, others do; I miss the friend system from IV (V's is crap) - Niko had a lot of friends and there was a lot to learn from them (and a lot to do!) but others hated it etc

Cringe worthy op. But nahhhh it's just a number. Singeplayer was alright and it was never called the "perfect gaming experience ever", y'all overhyped the game and yall just need to learn to play other games instead of play one and nitpick the hell out of it tbh.

Rockstar has no excuse for putting in GTA V :

 

* Yoga as a side activity. (yeah I know it's part of the story, I just don't think it needed a stupid, pointless activity wasted on it).

* Triathlon

* Trevor as protagonist (my very personal view).

* That FIB/IAA/Merryweather, government bullsh*t taking up a huge chunk of the story. 

* Certain favorable features in the gameplay of Online MP over the Single Player.

 

Rockstar has no excuse for not putting in GTA V :

 

* Gang Wars (for Franklin).

* Gang recruitment or Gang followers/bodyguards (for Franklin)

* Random gang shootouts in the hood unconnected to the player.

* A drug-dealing mini-game.

* Much more interiors in Los Santos like fast food outlets (Burger Shot, Cluckin' Bell), nightclubs, bars and more. 

* Buying safehouse properties of our choice.

* Gambling (not stocks, the typical definition of gambling).

* A significant Hispanic gang involvement in the story.

* Glock pistols, Tec-9s, and firearms that actually black in color. 

* An nice array of expensive jewelry to buy in stores.

* A better version of East Los Santos with Hispanic ghettos/barrios, not the totally industrial place as depicted in the game.

Well, yeah this is based off LA. but it doesnt exactly have to be 100% accurate about it, afterall its their rendition of it and they could put whatever they wanted on it.  Going to Nightclubs ins't exactly what most of the characters like to do, so I see that there ins't exactly a reason to go inside one of them because what the f*ck are we supposed to do there? Just dance?

 

It would of had been nice to have them but then again what would be the actual porpuse once inside?

 

@OfficialGeneral

 

Most of what you posted in there is something they have a proper explanation for.

What really annoys me is the fact that they hid the ability to leave the car engine on while exiting it.

Hey Matajuegos, stop poking your nose on other people's problems somebody might get hurt.

 

OT:

 

What Im exactly trying to say is that we dont really need Nightclubs that much, it is LA but what is the objective after being inside of a night club? All I actually remember that I ever did inside of them was massacring people.

*no excuse for having no revolvers. 

*no excuse for having rediculus cops that will shoot you for bumping into them in broad daylight..... why even put batons in the game... gta 4s cops were way better, but even they were trigger happy.

*no excuse for the melee system, i mean atleast gta4 had like 6 different counter strikes.

*and lastly the driving physics

@Officer Ronson

If it doesn't have to be 100% accurate than why did they recreate Sunset and Hollywood Blvds almost block for block? And I never said it had to be 100% accurate anyway, but why get so much right and miss that one?

The Housers don't really strike me as the club going types and that's probably why it's left out. That or they could never get in LA clubs :cool:

As far as club activities:

Dancing
Picking up chicks
Hooking up in the bathroom
Drinking
Getting into fights

And thats just off the top of my head. Like I said you haven't spent time/partied in LA, so it's forgivable that you don't see them as missing.

Gonna repeat this one because it deserves repeating:

 

• No excuse for removing the tap Triangle/Y button to leave engine running.

 

 

Probably the dumbest thing they did with this game. Really a sign of just WTF from Rockstar on this game. And the worst part is it's so f*cking simple they could patch it in, but unless thousands of players make a big deal out of it they never will bother to. Sad.

No vigilante missions? They were in almost every game, while TLAD and TBoGT had alternatives.

Gang Hideouts should have been in SP.

Stores are marked on the map in Online, but not SP? What the f*cking f*ck?

Three endings? IV was okay since it was practically the same mission, but I'm getting tired of different stories for everyone.

Some character specific activities, with the possibility of never being able to play them again? That sucks.

Slippery cars cheat, but no Carmageddon cheat? Come on, that was popular as sh*t in IV.

Cops just kill NPCs? Paramedics don't even attempt to revive people?

The Wasted screen doesn't let you watch your character flop around? WHY.

Wanted System is still f*cked up, even though it was better in RDR?

Gunplay is a step up from IV/RDR, but nothing like Max Payne 3's?

The Hunting levels (objectives, missions, whatever you call 'em) is complete sh*t. They are practically subtitles in the pause menu, RDR had an actual menu for it.

Can't leave the car running unless some sh*tty workaround that doesn't work half the time?

 

In general though, there was stuff Rockstar did in IV, RDR, and MP3 that was executed fantastically in those games. Some of the same features and mechanics are in V, but are done terribly. There's no excuse for that.

 

Still, V is great. But it's more like two steps forward, one step back - than it is a step up from Rockstar's previous games.

 

The good thing is most of the complaints people have (like the crazy AI accuracy) and other things can be easily fixed with mods. I cannot wait for the PC version.

There's vigilante missions. They're a Strangers and Freaks thing. There's only a couple though.

 

And honestly, if you lose out on activities because you killed a protagonist, that's your own fault. I don't know why you would want to limit yourself by killing a playable character anyway, especially since you can just decide to not play him at all afterwards, and repeat the endings to do A and B.

 

Just my $0.02

 

OT: Still the engine running. How that's not in baffles me.

No excuse for not being able to get in places (unlocked) since release all this while.

 

As well, I wonder, in the future, when Online will get tremendous "numbers" in jobs or missions or activities, Is there any reason for them not to include it for single-player, at least, in future as DLC packs???
