It's funny when the shoe is on the other foot. I don't think anybody realizes how many people where echoing that same amount of impassioned arguments against iv's driving mechanics. But guess what? Rockstar never changed a thing. iv remained the way iv is today all through out it's stint as the current gta title. rockstar didn't bend and or cave into anything. They made iv they way they wanted it and no crying, screaming, or kicking was going to change it.
The same applies here. V's mechanics will remain the same up until 6 is released, if it ever is released, and forever after that. And that's that.
So this thread will never end. This debate will go on forever with people basically repeating themselves for all eternity. So have fun with that guys.
