@ChiroVette: What is "my brand" of V bashing, ... actually when was the last time I "bashed" on V?
Edit: I think I've cracked it, you think ONLY fans should stick to each games section? So you see me and others post here and I guess you assume we're just coming here to attack V? Gonna let you in on a secret, I tend to check all the main games forums and post in each one when I can.
Straw Man argument. I never said people should stick to a section for games they like. But you IV fans seem to believe I want to bash IV. My defense is that you guys are deflecting. If I wanted to bash IV, I would be in that section bashing it. You have no idea how many times people PM me links to threads and posts in that section that bash V, and I don't even go to the links. The reason being that I won't go to a IV forum to bash that game OR make arguments about V's obvious superiority over IV. Here is the truly humorous part: You guys coming here to bash the game constantly and talk about all the negative perceptions held by your small, fractional cult minority are citing ME being repetitive. Yet you are the ones keeping the IV versus V debate going, not me, And you are doing it for YEARS now.
I stand by what I said. If you guys would stop referencing IV all the time, whether overtly or pretending not to when you bash V, I would never talk about the game again. There is no need!
I mean, why would I care about a ten year old game, after Rockstar improved the franchise immeasurably with V? I wouldn't! That's the point. V is the GTA that redeemed the franchise and made it "GTA again." That's more than good enough for me.
So anytime you guys want to stalk talking about IV in this forum, you don't need my permission. But stop pretending that you are NOT holding IV out as the reason you bash V, whether you, in particular, are a "hater" or not.
Aside from the verbal tussles I sometimes have with you, I like your sense of zeal and enthusiasm displayed when you engaged in GTA-related discussions, the fire and passion you have for the franchise is very evidently expressed like many of the more dedicated GTA fans on this site.
However your obsession with bashing IV and igniting IV vs V debates are a trifle boring now, and your near constant references to this particular subject in nearly every thread you grace is getting very jarring. This is not me having a dig at you, it's a very genuine observation of mine. It would be a lot more interesting to be more inclusive of other GTA-related subjects than solely focusing on IV vs V debates.
Just putting in my two pence.
I offer the same answer I gave to Ash.
And I can prove I am not obsessed with IV, and my discussions with you do it for me! When you talk about VC versus V I stick to that topic and compare those games. When you talk about interiors, I discuss interiors only in V. When you talk about San Andreas, your ultimate GTA experience, I agree with you, and I juxtapose SA and V along with you. When you talk about the police in V versus bribes and Pay 'n' Sprays, I agree with you. When you talk about how V's Online is killing GTA, I never mention IV, I talk about that. I only keep bringing up IV when it is relevant to the discussion, as it was when I was talking to Lioshennka, on the previous page about realism. Also, sometimes it is important to juxtapose both games because the inherent philosophy of IV and V are completely different. So it is very difficult or damned near impossible to not talk about IV a lot when talking about V. Particularly when I believe V is a vast improvement in gameplay, map, physics, storytelling, characters, missions, and pretty much every area, and you guys believe V is downgraded from IV. So how can we put a group of fans who LOVE V together with a group who either hate it or are very critical, BUT LOVE IV so much, and not expect all the comparisons? It is madness to suggest that the two games not be compared all the time in this environment.
When you guys bring up criticisms that are so obviously aimed at V that are truly "because it isn't IV" and not compared to other games, and you simply leave off the mention of IV, even though it is so obvious you are talking about IV, then ts hypocritical to attack me for talking about IV when you are the ones making the comparisons, even though you aren't admitting it. Now, I am not saying specifically YOU do this, but your side of the debate does.
But I don't think its fair to allow people to attack me and other V fans personally, then act like we are all going off topic and derailing the threads.
It is fair to correct you when most of you guys take your opinions for granted and as facts.
Do I need to quote the posts from CGF who are completely baits most of the time ? And I already saw him in the GTA 4 section.
Don't pretend that you guys, the GTA 5 fan are all nice and calm 24/7 because that's not the case, it works basically the same in both directions.
You are one of the biggest offenders of the V-hating-IV-fanboys. You constantly attack V for "not being IV" and then you get pissed off when I disagree, counter your points, and finally, after YOU bring up how much better you think IV is, you have the audacity to attack me for comparing the two games.
And let's talk about ME, not CG. I don't moderate his behavior in this forum. He is his own man.
ChiroVette you sit here and spout all this stuff about V and blame everyone else when they comment but your the one trying to antagonize people with your signature, you dont like IV, you like V thats fine but please take your signature and that twat Trevor and shove it up your arse im sick of seeing it on every post you make.
Glad you like it! I love Trevor, too, and his dispatching of that pussywhipped, drug-addled nice personold was one of the highlights of V, which improved on the series in so many ways! My Sig and custom title have nothing to do with this debate, by the way. If they irk you, look in the mirror.
Kind of yeah, the dude try to be polite and mature and you will almost believe him until you saw his profile;
Member Title GTA V = The Anti-Snore (IV) AKA The Snore Killer!
LMAO and you have no sense of humor!
Moreover, if the IV-Fanboy-V-Bashing stopped in this forum, I would change my Sig and custom title. But as long as you guys continue to hate on V for no other reason than "it isn't IV" and are so belligerent and hostile to any opposing opinions, then you are being hypocrites when you get pissed that I compare the games.
I will have any content in my Sig and CT that I please. And if you guys changed your attitude and your hypocrisy, I would entertain requests to change my Sig and CT.
