Sure. A 7.9 isn't bad by any means to me btw.
Care to explain why? Like, what you liked and didn't like, and why.
@TheMasterFocker: I'd give it a 7.9 then.
I would rate V at a 7.9 if I didn't have my expectations shattered because I just don't feel like the game was done to the best of Rockstar's ability. To me:
The map is beautiful and the graphics are good enough but the countryside feels like a park rather than an isolated and authentic countryside, and the graphics- well my only problem with them is the aliasing and the repetitive cloud formations albeit the graphics still don't bug me at all; the car customization, whilst nice to have, was overhyped by the company itself and it could've had some more options to truly stand out rather than feel basic; the property purchase in Online is a nice touch but it would've been nice to own multiple garages and change the paint inside of our apartments to make it feel different than our friend's apartment; the cops are no longer what I define fun and instead I define them as annoying, I haven't delt with such annoying cops since the II era games, TDU 1, and to be honest MC:LA's cops don't look so bad anymore; the heists in the story mode did not feel that exciting except for the one in Paleto, and there felt like there was no drive to do them other than working for the FIB but I craved for the characters to have a want for money; the driving, I am not going to really touch this as it depends on personal preference, but I liked it at first and now find myself bored with it and that hits me hard because I drive 90% of the time in the HD era GTA's; the planes, although a nice touh, felt like nothing special. I never did understand the obsession with planes in GTA but I could see why some liked it. Flying feels like nothing special, necessary, or fun to me though. Not much variety to me and the fightet jet was slow and I'd prefer a Hydra; the player customization, golf, tennis, yoga, biking, sky diving, scuba diving and undersea hunting and all things like that were nice touches and I can see why people want them, but they jist arem't my thing and got a less special to me the more I played the game.
Continuing: I think the lack of interiors was a let down. Yeah it is so menial but that does not make my feelings invalid. I think interiors add depth to a map especially the super awesone way Rockstar does them. They get me immersed when I roleplay as a civil acting tourst and explore the city of LS. But V lacks a lot of interiors and the nice ones they made were locked up outside of missions.
There is more I want to say, but I am on my phone and my thumbs hurt. I do appreciate some of the good features we have in V but man, so many good, innovative activitied were overlooked. This is precisely why I think V isn't that much of an evolving game in the GTA series.
