Is it like this everyday? People calling each other kids and rarely expressing their own opinions? I joined this forum because I wanted to discuss about Grand Theft Auto... bored.gif

Alright, girls. We're all getting bored of the bitching, and the bitching about the bitching, and maybe even the bitching about the bitching about the bitching. So instead of filling up the V section with lots and lots of threads about how Rockstar have shorthanded you, just rant here. Be as vulgar as you want, let it all out.

So, what's pissed you off from the game?

- No gore

 

- No crumbling brick walls

 

- little bushes everywhere that stop you dead in your tracks/wreck your cars

 

- No crouching - cover is only allowed on predesignated objects - no help from geography or objects you aren't standing against.

 

- No roll button, can't roll without a weapon equiped

 

- No "retry" or "cancel" option until you die or fail a mission.

 

- terrible car/plane/bike handling

 

- No control over what kind of punches or kicks you throw

 

- 3 crashes on a bicycle and you're dead.

 

- No camping like in RDR.

 

- No RDR-style hunting/trade. Takes any sense of purpose out of the hunting.

 

-  the text for button prompts and in parts of the pause menus is too small to read - on the biggest tv I've ever owned even.

 

- Forces a boring-ass stock market "experience" on you

 

- Forces the cell phone on you, but the camera won't even save pictures if you're not playing online. Horsesh*t.

 

- the prostitute 'experience' is offensively bad. They don't just hop in your car and get to it, it's a whole cutscene presentation that you can't cancel out of and it's just bad.

 

- They force realism on you in every aspect, but the cars twist/slide on an axis that's floating above the pavement.

 

- You die or get badly injured by slipping/stumbling on a slope, but flip your convertible with it's top down and you can roll around on the back of the car/your head like a turtle, and there's no visible damage.

 

- The cars handle more like bikes in the air than bicycles do.

 

- The explosions are all the same, an ugly effervescent black/yellow, and they transfer from car to car like a ghost. Not real looking at all. Compare them to the ones in Just Cause 2

 

- Compare EVERYTHING about this game to Just Cause 2, which came out 5 years ago... It's amazing how much worse gta is in many basic aspects.

 

- people catch fire like magic

 

- can't get out of a flying/tumbling car until it comes to a complete stop, and when you do, it's incredibly slow.

 

- Can't bail out of a vehicle, even at low speeds, without injury

 

- Near-invisible reticle

 

- Super-sensitive wanted meter, but you can't even aim a gun out a window without it firing automatically nonstop.

 

- No binoculars/telescope and the camera doesn't work offline

 

- Constantly pushing the ifruit crap and other online services even though there's no internet connection.

 

Way too many little things for it to be an accident. It's shady business and I won't support them after this.

 

 

Look at all the recent NSA/prism stuff... If you think rockstar isn't making money on more than just microtransactions, you're an idiot.  Play the friend request/life invader mission a couple of times and look at the data farming stuff they're rubbing in our faces.

 

I was under the impression rockstar would be combining good elements from all their games, not just prettying it up and then stifling/throttling the control you have over everything...

- losing more money every time you die than you earn on most missions

 

- pointless properties

 

- the hand-holding is atrocious. You can't step out of any of their bounds. can't do what you're told to do until you're told to do it, and if it's a mission where you actually can do something off-plot, you won't get credit for it/you'll fail, and the game won't say why, so you may end up repeatedly failing/getting frustrated by doing the right thing, just 'at the wrong time.' I'm thinking specifically of the flight school garbage.

 

- the missions are all pre-determinned and it feels like you're just tapping buttons through an "interactive" cgi sequence. They'll control when you can or can't run. They'll control when you can or can't draw a weapon. They'll control when you can or can't drive faster than a target. Plenty more examples if you want them. They'll control which characters you can or can't hit/shoot.

 

 

- Play any good car game from the 90s or 2000s. Or any game with good plane handling. Or games with motorcycles.  The controls in this game should have been better than old games, not worse.

 

 

- They force realism where it's not fun, and remove it from where it would be. You complain about dying to easily on foot and people mock you for complaining about it being too realistic, and then you complain about the totally unrealistic car stuff and they deride you saying It's a video game.

 

- They removed classic car controls,  x for gas square for brake, something people really liked/wanted, but force you to tap x for walking/biking. Really takes some fun out of biking.

 

- the fact that you have to sit through the yoga mission. This is nothing less than insulting.

 

- To roll, you must first equip a weapon, then hold one button, then press another.  3-4 button preses for a roll. yeah, real fun.

 

- there's more, much more, it's crazy that people are saying it's perfect. that the cars and mechanics are just right. You're all insane, I can't imagine how sh*tty games are going to be in 20 years withs tuff like this happening.

I might, as long as the sequence is optional and I don't have to mash buttons while the controller vibrates uncomfortably.

 

 

The hooker 'experience' in gtaV was seriously the most homo-erotic thing I've been apart of since highschool...

 

How gross is it that the controller virbates when the guy moans... It's like they want you to feel like you're touching him...

 

They give you the 'option' to move the camera around (and not the option to exit) but you never 'see anything.'  You get better angles of people having sex in your backseat on at least one side mission.

 

Everything about the old games that was fun to do is being made laborious and unfun, more about animation sequences than gameplay - I bought the game to play it, not watch it... And the things that are still fun will get the cops on you in five seconds, which stops the fun pretty quick.

 

Chases/shootouts would be sooo much better if the basic controls weren't f*cked

I personally love the game but there are a few things that piss me off:

• Online. It isn't online itself, but the features it has that Single Player could've easily had but doesn't at the moment. Why can't we have car insurance, all of the interiors available, safehouse property to buy, garage property to buy, and some of the activities from Online that wouldn't require extra players? Is this an attempt to be like all of the sh*tty developers or to force us to want to play Online? I hope Rockstar is aware of this.

• Safehouses themselves. I like how Rockstar listened to our complaints about property but then gave us what we didn't want. Properties with no interiors, and safehouses all in the wrong places. I wanted a beach house, a mansion, or a Vespucci Canals house. What did we get... Apartments, after apartments... after apartments. What makes it worse? No beach apartments, not even an actual penthouse with an outdoor deck. This was a missed opportunity. SA had better property. Michael's and Franklin's properties are better than Onlines. Oh well.

• Ya can't buy any car ya want in SP. Why??? I mean wouldn't it be smart to allow us to buy any cars, but no we can only buy cars that were selected. Where the hell am I going to find a Stinger GT Coupé now? Where is the Futo, Blista, etc. And the garage property is pathetic. Where are the shiny ten car garages? Saved for Online? Stupid ass move.

• The Stallion is gone, the Dukes is gone, the basic cars are GONE! We go to Los Angeles and it is mostly filled with luxurious cars. I complained about the lack of more higher end cars in V and they give us the exact opposite. Rockstar, you all have brains don't ya? Do you know what giving us the best of both worlds means? It looks like you don't.

• The cops. Chases and shootouts can be fun but when a puny Crown Victoria can ram a 6k pound truck and spin it or climb hills better than it is when I get f*cking pissed.

So I love the game but it has rough edges and annoyances. I'd give V a 8.5/10 right now.

The fact it's the only thread which is made for complaining about the game for all users. There's lots of whiny threads but this topic serves as like the main one, to stop the whiny threads filling up the place.

This I can agree with. The police are extremely formidable. A weird step-up from IV.

I've only picked a hooker up once. After over two minutes of it with no option out I just turned my system off. I'm not 10 years old, I have no interest in listening to bad porn dialog with a man-voiced-controller vibrating in my lap.

 

So much of this game is clearly aimed at kids, and they've softened/dumbed so much down.  Everything about it just feels like an insult.

Something just dawned on me, but is there any real reason to hang out with friends in GTA V other than doing activities for 100%?

I know it wasn't a very well liked feature in GTA IV, but I liked it. I done it all the time because it felt like it had a purpose. I've only hung out with Jimmy and Lamar once each. The lack of like/respect suggests they don't give perks like GTA IV so what's the point?

It kind if annoys me when R* bend to the masses and dumb things down to the point they shouldn't even be there.

I guess what I'm saying is the friends system sucks balls compared to GTA IV. Even if the phone calls annoyed people there was no reason the approach from EFLC couldn't have been used. As it stands I think friends are absolutely useless in GTA V.

- Cops still ram into you when you're in a tank in a stupid attempt to slow you down.

 

- Even if you flee the crime scene drive 2 miles away, and no cops are around to follow you, they still know exactly where you are.

They just show up wherever you are... like you have a tracking device in your body

- the gps route on the radar floats inconsitently. Sometimes the line is on the road you're on, sometimes it's floating a street-distance away. It lead to a lot of confusion before turning it off.

 

It also never shows the fastest route, but the legal/taxi route (I think)

 

- the pause menu takes anywhere from 3 to 10 seconds to come up, same with the map. gets annoying hitting pause, waiting, hitting X, waiting, then hitting X again to select/navigate... I like games where you just press one button to bring up a map.

 

 

 

 

- stock market stuff is the last thing I'd ever want to do in a videogame. After restarting the game to try to play right with the lester missions, I've been trying to check in on it every once in a while. I've never seen bawsaq work. I'm playing offline, am I not going to be able to access the stocks that are supposed to be traded around the assassination missions?  Why do I even have to think about boring stock market BS?

Only three things I really have issues with:

 

1.) Plane / helicopter handling. Atrocious is the best word I'd give it. It's come to the point where I actively avoid piloting whenever possible, because it's a major PITA to fly. Yes, I know, there's turbulence, fine. I can accept that.

 

But tight-wired controls where you even twitch a thumb and you wind up crashing? Not cool. And no auto-pilot for planes? C'mon, you're kidding, right, R*? Even one-engine jobs have autopilots!

 

2.) Property system. It majorly sucks. A good example is McKinley airfield. No cash income outside of the $60K you get for doing a total of 10 unrepeatable missions? Just ain't worth it, not getting it again in future games. I can get more cash in two raids of the Hemp Farm, and you can repeat that weekly as Trevor. Michael and Franklin get majorly stiffed in this regard, they really have no reliable source of big income other than robbing stores, and that's a crap shoot most of the time.

 

3.) Lack of money. You get stiffed on jobs more times than I can count, and you really struggle to make a buck. I wound up driving cabs for hours as Franklin just to make enough money to invest, only to discover the investment system just ain't that good. Even going on rampages hardly pays anything. Frustrating at best. :(

- the checklist on the phone is all but uselss since it doesn't tell you anything but the titles of missions, and the 'brief' section of the pause menu rarely helps with anything either.

 

Ridiculous that the game didn't come with a helpful manual. Oh, but for only $40...

Hope like hell some of these are corrected for the multiplayer but here’s my top 10 rant ...

 

  1. Flight control:  All aircraft have turbulence programmed into them making smooth flight impossible.
  2. Targeting system on helicopters is useless. Bounces all over the place and you can’t control where the guns are shooting.
  3. Missile lock-on rarely works and the constant beeping is loud and annoying
  4. No way to look out the rear of the helicopter in first person view anymore
  5. Car control is totally unrealistic and very arcade like.
  6. The game constantly forces you into third person mode when doing stunts or shooting weapons.
  7. No rear view mirrors on the cars.  Can’t see behind you in first person view and in trucks the rear view is completely blocked.
  8. Can't aim a gun out a window without it firing automatically nonstop
  9. No crouching
  10. Weapon aiming system is almost invisible.

- MANY other games got plane physics better/more fun/less cartoonish. Near-complete stop in the air? Check. Only need ten feet to plop down and land? Got it.  Runways totally unnecessary ? You got it.

 

But you'll die tripping over a stone on a mountain, lose 5000 dollars, and have to travel all the way back, because... realism?
