The nes duck hunt had auto aim ?( or you used controller , no gun ). Gta is prolly 1 of the first openworld games so then the auto aim part is logic, like saying it was first openworld game with sniper rifle and locked of area's. Defined auto aim? they just want to sell more games so need make game that evry1 can make a kill, on console its who press L1 and R1 fastest win. That gameplay belongs more in a mario party game as in a fps/tps. I never seen problem ( online ), ye you slow aim that suck but evry1 has that problem so why need aim assist ?. In singleplayer i dont care.
GTA is definitely NOT one of the first open world games.
The Legend Of Zelda would probably be one of the first open world games.
And like I said on the front page, GTA 3 is not one of the first games to have auto aim either. It doesn't matter what refined what. It's still auto aim in the end, and any game in 2000 and up didn't have it first.
