But recently it hit me and it hit me hard that R* don't want you to spend your time in freemode hence the pathetic 'passive mode' .....they want you to do jobs which you even have to 'pay' to get into and release more and more expensive items to buy. I often wonder what I am ranking, earning up for? I just want to have random experiences in the world R* created like in IV's.
You can still have them. You can also do all the other stuff. It's like magic or something!
Whoa...heated debate. Maybe the complainers should realise that you don't pay for rockstar for "maximum fun". You pay for a disc (or two) with GTA V. GTA V is whatever the hell rockstar games decides what it is. Maybe it's just a drawing of a giant middle finger. Then it's up to you to decide whether you think it's worth 60 dollars or euros or whatever.
Gang wars doesn't fit with the story. Just because frank is black and from a low income neighbourhood doest mean his main ambition is to be a hoofdlum.
Like it or not, gta has an open world bit its very much a story driven game. Its always been like that. The story decides the features. I like that. Saints row works the other way around. They'll throw in everything and the kitchen sink, but for me its an unfocused mess to play. The game never becomes more than the sum of it's features. GTA V ( for me) is more than the sum of its features pretty much all the time. More is not always better.
Apart from that..yeah sure there's stuff they could do to improve it. I would like vigilante missions back and I would love to do more with the cab company you can buy. Drug trade would be another great minigame. But I don't miss anything and I definitely don't have that weird sense of entitlement some people have here.
If you don't agree with rockstar's design decisions on this game...well then that's just a bitch, isn't it? Better luck next time! Because something tells me you'll buy GTA 6 or whatever comes next. See how this works for rockstar designers? Why work on the things that'll make you (already convinced customer) a bit happier, or try to draw in new audience maybe? Will you buy the game twice? No... That settles it then...did someone say yoga?
I like this. Because it's based in reality.
