It's all fine and good, yes the driving is easy on GTA 5, and it's good for not scratching your cars. I don't have a problem with the twitchy controls, I have a problem with the super grip, and the lack of suspension, and the fact that the back wheels of the car stay perfectly straight, as if the car was being dragged by a tow truck from the front, you can turn on a dime. GTA 4s driving problems were like 5, 4s cars didn't have enough weight, they would be rolled over to easily. 5s cars also don't have enough weight, but they have super grip, and only get rolled over in fib cutscene lol. GTA 4s driving doesn't have enough grip, and whatever it's called, they lean to much to the right, and left when you make sharp turns, and rock back and forth to much when you stop and go. GTA 5s cars even a tank can stop on a dime, GTA 4s cars braking system is just a little slow, meaning you should be able to stop slightly faster/easier, but not by a lot. What makes the difference between GTA 4's driving and GTA 5's driving? GTA 4 gives you a medium level challenge while driving, and GTA 5 (unless on some type of drugs) is easy, simple, and feels...... dumbed down, if that's the word? They removed what little challenge there could have been, so now it just feels Arcady, but also like a racing game for 6 year olds just developing hand eye coordination. Let's put it like this; GTA 5 driving would be challenging...... is challenging, and fun, only for this specific age group. I'm 18 now, and I remember being 6 years old (playing my ps2 games yes I remember all of it, and my skill level then(got destroyed by mom who didn't even know which buttons to hit and had to look at the controller to know which button she was hitting every time) lol), and this would be... DRIVING wise, Rock Star's perfect target audience. But I prefer GTA 4s driving especially since Niko's driving is finely crisped (meaning Niko is a great driver who is at his maximum driving skill potential, but is also a little better than he should be because he isn't as brain dead as every other drugged up criminal in LC) I actually think that compared to Franklin's reputation as a street race that Franklin is a more fearless driver, but Niko is a more finely tuned corner navigator, but i actually think that Niko and Franklin's skill ( if Franklin's driving skill is maxed out) are even, but each have their own strengths when it comes to driving. Luis's is between great and above average driving skills, and Johnny's driving with cars is well....... Between average, and blind, but with motor cycles is like 3/4 a way between great and above average, leaning more towards great. So GTA 4 even takes more time to self individualize the driving skill proficiency of each individual character more than GTA 5 does. Which is why GTA 5 pisses me off. Because I can overlook the hype, dysfunctional story, nothing to do rewarding in a huge world, the 720p, the disproportionate character sizes vs iv, and a story line unlike its' driving, has no grip. But......a lot of freaking time is put into driving, so for it to be so piss poor makes me pissed off at the wasted potential of a game like RockStars'.
