Makes me think. We have first person perspective which is rarely used, as well as each protags special abilities. Isn't it or doesn't it seem odd that neither is actually used throughout the game? Kind of like taking photographs of the Monkey Murals. Shouldn't there be a point in using certain things at certain times or on certain occasions? Wasn't this R*'s point all along?
What about a key selling feature for next gen version ? What about building a complete game engine for their next game ? ( RDR2 which uses the same game engine )
I don't understand your comments. Why would they force first person on you ? It's just another option than they give you to experience the game. They were also going for a VR feeling here. First person also permits you to observe vehicles interior in online. It also helps to create an immersion feeling , something that Rockstar was going for too obviously.merged posts
Personally, I believe that's exactly what happened with this whole mystery hunt and how it all got so screwed up and blown out of proportion.
...They create the game
...They throw in a bunch of Easter eggs that link back to Old mods or troll stories
...People who know nothing about these old throwbacks come into the game and lose their minds because they see all this cool stuff and make a million assumptions about what it could mean
Hence the reason why people keep trying to link stuff back to the mural (On the mountain), The one puzzle that I truly believe is 100% solved
...the other Puzzles (@ 100%), well that still remains to be seen in my opinion but again that's just my opinion
Let's also not forget the fact that there were many players out there who knew about these things and use them in a manner to troll other players and still continue to do so
Either way you get the result that we have now
I agree with you here. You also need to factor in the youtubers. People that benefits off all this '' trolling ''. They keep access to all mystery related forums and subs to derail them and bring people on false paths , while linking their own channels with dummy accounts.
The only way to combat all these kind of people is to stay focused on arguments and making sure to never research things based on false interpretations. ( ie : things that were already debunked by the files , like the altruists event. ) Keep spreading the real information based on facts.
However, if you don't put it into the game then you disenfranchise all of those fans and that is more than likely (In the long run) is going to hurt your bottom line
Like The statement that I made about the Cave the other day.
One member said "look, this is all this stuff means" and I said "if that's the case Rockstar screwed up and needs to remove this"
If it doesn't lead to anything all you're going to do is make your fans upset that you put this crap That leads nowhere Into your game.
That's the equivalent of trolling them and I can assure you that doesn't go over well In the long run
If you need an example just read the s*** that goes on in these forms and then you'll see Just how much and how little tolerance people have for others who troll them
Look i know that this whole thing frustrates you a lot. I think that you are a minority here. Most people don't care about that stuff and if they do care , they will still buy ALL the next Rockstar games. Are you talking about Rockstar fans boycotting one of their game ? Because we all know that '' in the long run '' , those whiners always end up buying the next game anyway just to whine about it. In the long run , they ALL buy the games anyway so Rockstar lose nothing my friend. Even bad publicity is still good for Rockstar. They always played the controversy card , so more controversy shouldn't really bother them don't you think ? : *)
I do have a quick question for the more tech-savvy People who delve into this hunt
...referring to the people who hacked into the files
You guys claimed that you found all kind of weird strings but they don't seem to be complete
Considering the fact that the game can simply update as it goes along Rather than needing all the information right then and there
...and It was also pointed out that the strings were there but they just appeared to be unfinished
...Is it remotely possible that If you solve the mystery it triggers a download And that's how something is unlocked and this was Rockstar's clever way of hiding This from everyone
I'm just throwing this out there as an idea and a possibility...
You did say that Something was there during One update then it was gone for another then they put it back in Maybe Rockstar read about the hacking going on in the game files and said...
take it out
if they do happen to stumble across it and Trigger it
We will just put it in as a download
To put it simply , yes it's '' possible ''. It's not probable or plausible at all and no evidence ever supported this idea. Also there would still need to be in-game triggers for an event to lead to such a download and nothing ever been found to support that idea either.
Bandwidth is not something cheap to afford when it comes to millions and millions of players. You can be sure that they avoid it at all cost anytime they can. Also i could see technical issues rising about a download being triggered mid-game on old-console. My knowledge about old console is bad but i'm not even sure it would be possible to download something that would modify the game files outside of the PS3 UI during the game. So it might actually be impossible.
And I know some would say...
but why take them down?
Well if they are in fact BS, I don't want to lead someone else down a rabbit hole that doesn't end up with anything
That's what a troll does
Personally i had to do 4 complete work before i was satisfied with my analysis. If you can already refute yourself , it means that the arguments present in your work are too weak and needs to be precised.
When you can't refute yourself anymore , that's when you go for outside feedback and look for others to refute your work. It's already good that you realize this by yourself though , high five to that.
