I remember in IV where i could roam streets picking fights with random peds, which were always fun and provided me something to do between missions. The fist fights felt smooth for the most part and the peds were more admirable combatants than their V counterparts.
In V the fist fights feel clunky and very "heavy" in a way, I honestly feel V's melee was a major step-back from IV's. GTA V's combat system feels very neglected.
So what do you think R*s excuse is for not improving upon IV's combat system.
No Money to improve it?
Not enough time?
What are your thoughts?
