Something that has pissed me off in every GTA game

Recommended Posts

Cojawfee

The start new game section of the menu. Firstly, why would I want a start new game option if I am looking to load a game? Second why is delete save RIGHT NEXT to load game? There is no difference in the appearance of the two except I get screwed over at the end of the second one. I don't read the menus when playing because I am in a hurry and now I have deleted my save game. All my hard work is gone and now. I was all the way up to right after riot where I was taking territories and I slipped on the mouse and now I am all the way back to interdiction. This has happened atleast once in every GTA game so far, and it really annoys me. They really need to move the two options apart, or make something distinguishing about them instead of them both being some text at the top and yes and no. Man, I am really steamed about this, I don't want to do several of the missions all over again.

 

Now I guess I have to find a save game for right before end of the line.

Holy sh*t talk about coinsidence....Nearly the same thing happened to me, when I was at the same exact place in the game... And now I'm so pissed mad.gif Now I can either get someone else's savegame, take the trouble of getting my CJ back like he was and doing all the crap that wasn't in the savegame like Gold in the schools, 100% with GFs and such, or I can just start the game over...Argh what a hassle confused.gif

Starting a new game is a f*ck lot more fun than playing the game normally.

 

So just start it over. ¢$¢

The only problem is that I don't know how much longer I will be able to have time to play the game. I was hoping I was going to be able to finish the game today or tomorrow, but now I don't know.

 

I know it is fun to play the all the way through again, but I just hate that I have to do all of those hard missions all over again just to get to somewhere I was twenty minutes ago. The territory fights are already boring and tedious as it is, it would just get worse if I have to take over that many more.

What I hate is the warning about losing all your progress when you quit the game, even though I saved the game 5 seconds earlier. All that does is teach you to ignore the warning. One time I shut down after several missions and really did forget to save my place. I ignored the warning about losing progress because it shows that every single time. If they only showed that warning if the game has moved on for 60 seconds or more, then people might take notice of it when it counts.

That is what I am talking about, the game programs you to ignore things and click aimlessly to continue and you can't reverse any of it.

Or they should've at least included a menu where you can select all the missions you've finished already incase you need to go back to some of them, reminiscent of syphon filter one I can think of.

I kind of did that finished the last mission end of the line, so I went to mess about with some cheats in a new game, all was going fine went to save my game and with out looking saved over my finished game.

 

So instead of playing through again just going to wait till some saves come up, don't feel like playing it all through again certainly not the last missions.

I guess Hitman has that feature too.

You were too lazy to read cryani.gif ......That means it was your falt blink.gif . So, because of your laziness, someone else needs to be responsible? sarcasm.gif

 

 

Don't get me wrong now, I've done it too. Just as unintentionaly as you have. I've deleted a PSOne Diablo game angry.gif , GT3 game save angry.gif , formated a memory card angry.gif . It is quite frustrating. But my OMG, Man up and pay attention to what you are doing!!

I am sorry that the game programs one to just click through menus. I just want to get back to playing, I don't want to click for five minutes. I wouldn't have deleted the save if every menu didn't look the exact same.

It´s not the game that makes you ignoring things and clickin´everywhere, can´t be that hard to look out for what you´re doing.

If you see a sign that tells you "STOP - shooting range, no trespassing", are you walkin any further ?

In this case the problem sits in front of the computer.

easy solution: save the game in more then one slot. i have my primary save in the 1st and 2nd slot, just incase.

 

relatively idiot proof.

Water boy says:The next Gta should have a menu when you put the disc in at the beginning instead of immediately going to the gameplay. That would solve these problems. Water boy runs away

While I love the game.... and apparently nobody can step up to the plate to do it better..

 

 

It could be executed a f*ckload better. There area lot of idiotic things, and even a lack of creativity on the part of rockstar...

You need to read what was posted again. Slower this time, since you didn't understand it the first time.

 

When the same warning pops up every single time whether you're about to delete a save by accident, quit without saving or when you're quitting after saving, the warning becomes useless. It shouldn't pop up when you've *just* saved your game. When you really are about to delete or overwrite a save file by accident and you see the same warning you see every other time, you ignore it.
