"grand theft auto is not a game about cars..."
Midnight Club is a game about cars...Grand Theft Auto is a game about crime, Grant Theft Auto is not a game about cars, there just happens to be cars in it
It's amazing how R* created Midnight Club which is NFS Tuning unofficial sequel, yet car modding in this game leaves much to desire.
"title is the crime of stealing cars"
Implying that the title makes it a car game when it's clearly a game about crime...because the Story Mode has you going around doing nothing that doesn't involve cars, right?
The game was originally supposed to be called "Race & Chase
", but there was no racing...
So Grand Theft Auto should be on the shelf right next to Need For Speed, Midnight Club, and Gran Turismo, huh?
There is no point in the game where you will never use cars. Take out all the cars. Is it grand theft auto now? I can guarantee you that if gta 6 has no enterable cars, 90% of the gta fanbase would stay at gta 5. This is clearly a car game with crime elements to it. Why does everyone complain about the car physics if its not a car game? why does everyone complain about the rammers in races if its not about cars? gta is clearly a car game. that doesnt mean that it is a street racing/racing simulator. its a car game.
and fyi, race n chase had various CAR related missions such as racing, and police chases which you could either be a criminal or a cop. The original "idea" for Race'n'Chase was "to produce a fun, addictive, fast-paced multiplayer car racing and crashing game." the playtesters found a glitch where the police would keep ramming the players car and the players would do that instead of the missions, therefore, gta was born.
so what have we learned here? gta was always a car game. the biggest feature of gta is stealing cars. and you will never be able to finish the storymode if you dont drive cars. hell, you wont finish the first mission. so there. gta is and always will be a car/crime game.
