Now that we're waiting for 1.16. Lets make a list of things that we love in Gta v. If there's a thread similar to this close this thread down  :)

There probably is, but who cares? I for one, actually love the graphics on this game. Everyone gives it a lot of sh*t for last-gen limitations, which, obviously, is to to be expected on 8 year old hardware. But driving with the HUD off with the camera focused closest to the shoulders and just walking around, the graphics on the cars mainly, really impress me. I like that there's not a lot of bloom effect like other games have (NFS) but the car's lighting look natural. The lipsync during cutscenes is also really good. Minor detail here, but when I see MTF's haircuts, they look real as in you can see each strand of hair. Mentioning details, I like how you can see Chop pant and his tongue actually moves. The explosions look realistic. I remember first seeing them in the GTA Online trailer. I thought to myself, DAAAAAAMN! Finally, I like how how even though the area is extremely limited and it only surrounds like 2 inches around you, I like how when standing under trees or by a chain link fence, you can see through all the little holes. That is all for now.

Thanks, People just seem to talk about the negative things about anything :) If Gta v was only released for Current gen(PS4,XBOX ) I wouldn't be playing this game most likely. Thanks for your opinion :)

The cars, The beautiful graphics seen never before! It was so bright compared to GTA IV. The NPC's and Random events in Single Player showing what usually happens in Los Santos. The HUGE map (But Blaine Country was gonna be bigger) The perfect lip sync in cutscenes. The beach at day, i love taking pictures of the sun when its in front of the beach, and don't forget the stone dude and the people laying on the beach waiting to be ran over by a Sandking >:). The guns, they are like guns in real life but the Firework Launcher was my favorite. The cheats... Every GTA game has the good old cheats that are fun like Zero Gravity. Mount Chiliad! I like going up there and then go down with my car and wreck it or free fall off, Or get the Liberator and climb up all the way and fall down seeing NO damage to it whatsoever. Single Player Heists, Its fun how you set it up and if you pick the wrong person you lose then and their money. Lastly... Not GTA:O Because theres so many people that kill you for no reason and the races are so bugged, i can't even join most of them all i see is that loading screen pictures. Its... STRIP CLUBS :p

I agree with most of your choices. Gta v feels so alive with random events. My favorite heist was paleto bay The trailer alone made me love it.but doing itself was amazing.

The general variety. Loads of vehicles, weapons and also costumization for both. And missions as well are varied and entertaining.

Multiple character system was innovative and has potential. Hope to see iterations!

An extensive online mode, which is promising, despite of the problems.


Did playhour average the other day, almost 2 hours a day on average since i made the purchase, reckon it's decent return for money spent to say the least.

Has there ever been a game with with the three characters? If there wasn't any then Gta v is kind of revolutionary lol but no where as revolutionary as Gta 3

It has loads of weapons. You can make a dog attack humans. it looks quite nice. Loads of vehicles. Good lightning. The dlc is free. You get to play as a guy who eats people. I like the way a lot of the missions transition from cutscene to gameplay with no loading screen. I like the car damage too. You can kill a jonah hill lookalike, if you're not a fan of him thats a benefit.

I like the dogs attacking but they are so OP. They are so OP before i shoot up grove street i have to examine the place :D

People think the only thing to do is activities. But it's all about IMAGINATION! I doubt having a gun fight on a train could be a activity lol

-Customisation. I love GTA V's customisation. A pity there's such a limited amount of storage space for vehicles though.

-Michael. The best of the trio IMO.

-Vapid Blade. F*cking aye.

-Snapmatic. I love taking photos.

-Soundtrack. I don't think it's as bad as what people say.

Michael

 

Dynamic Weather

 

Customization

 

Countryside is beautiful

 

Flashlight for guns. That would have been extremely useful in GTA IV.

Michael's dialogue, movement and demeanour. The most convincing playable criminal in the entire series.

^ Pretty much sums it up. The things that really stand out to me are the detailed vehicles and landscape though. I also like to just walk around and admire the humorous signs/ads throughout the city and listen to random NPC convos. Endless entertainment!

Haven't seen quick save mentioned yet. Playing III era games recently it's such a pain in the arse to travel back to a safehouse every time you need to save. GTAV spoiled me.

Features like this are taken for granted IMO. If there's any feature I hope gets carried over from GTA V to GTA VI it's this.

Quick save is going to be so great on the PC & NG versions with the faster loading times. The fact that it loads you in the exact same spot where you quick saved is great. That means you can quick save and do whatever the f*ck you want then quick load right after. This is a perfect way to see how certain random events play out based on your choices.  

 

Like the one time I found that woman running away from her groom at the wedding. He came after us and I shot him dead. She called Trevor a monster and ran way. I later found out that I actually "failed" the random event by doing this, or rather, got a "bad" ending to it.

 

Good thing I quick saved. Loaded the save up and took her straight to the altruist cult instead :lol:.

I really love the weather effects in GTA V. Sometimes at sea and at night, it almost looks photo-realistic. With the reflections casting on the water plus the awesome waves! Man, I love it!

Vehicle customization is really good in this game as well. I never leave a vehicle unmodified.

The countryside is a nice area to get away from the cityscape of LS.

The animations are so smooth compared to GTA IV. The transitions from animations to animations are smooth as well!

The quick save feature!!

I love the increased height limit! Its always fun to get a Lazer and fly to the highest altitude, jump out and immediately pull the cord on the parachute. Takes forever to get to ground level.

I love the map. The scenery is fantastic. The animals are a great addition and it's a shame the console generations limited the numbers of them.

The Emergency Vehicle lighting system is very much extremely better than IV's.

The radio wheel and how it displays the artist and name of song currently playing. Small but great addition.

  • The Coquette's: They're good looking and the only cars in the game that are actually fun to drive
  • Los Santos: I have a love/hate relationship with it but I can't help but admire the detail that was poured into it sometimes
  • The Mil-Jet: Awesome jet, fun to pilot and a great alternative to a the private jet as far as looks go
