"TheAge.com" Says "Is GTA Becoming Dull?"

Recommended Posts

jarjar

carpetdweller &

PyroHazard - Your posts and opinions have been the best so far, you have the riht idea. I must say it's good to see everyone with there own opinion and everyone on the same line as me. GTA will never be dull, and with GTA4 around the corner, we know the series is going to be kick ass. The fact this guy at TheAge.com.au has gone and based his information on the portable games is just stupid, they are not meant to be majorly new and groundbreaking, the idea for them was for them to bring GTA to you where ever and when ever you want. And to be honest, I think that is a great idea, and R* have certainly done it well.

 

What non-GTA-fans may think is not our worry. This gut is paid to do his job, we are not, thus we at the end of the day have a better understand and idea on what we think. Because where not being paid and not doing reviews for more then one game or one problem. Plus, our opinions are played by our own experiences, not that of what we're seen, heard or read, but simple by first hand knowledge and experience.

 

 

Can't even see your post, but I'm sure it's the same "omg saints row is liek bettar lol!11" stuff.

 

Next time think before posting, do you really think I would post something like that? have you seen any of my posts before? I'm a hardcore GTA fan, I'm usually the one going off at people making topics like that dozingoff.gif .

 

 

GTA 4 will have a new city, new software and the new hardware will make more things possible. R* has a rep for taking things to the next level.

 

Too true my friend, we all know it will be a new type of gaming experiance icon14.gif.

 

 

Umm... there is no TheAge.com...

 

Personally, I so overplayed Vice City so much that I'm a bit bored with the map. Libery City I only played through once a long time ago so there was much exploring left to do, especially since there wasn't flight before so I hadn't seen it from the air yet.

 

The recycled games are way better than the alternative. Could you imagine waiting 3 years for GTA4? The two years waiting for SA was really long, I can't imagine 3 years.

 

Yes, sorry it was meant to be "TheAge.com.au".

 

Same here, I played VC a little t much that it has become more of a bordem. LC and SA are different though, so many different places to explore. VC was a little too small for me, so that probable has something to do with it.

 

I agree with you 100% with that, they need something to keep our interest and keep/gain new fans. icon14.gif.

It's not that the GTA formula is becoming tiresome, it's that there are no surprises left in the current gen series. They can't all of the sudden come out with a new island, introduce all new characters, and create new features for a new Grand Theft Auto experience on the current generation consoles/PSP. To get that true new GTA feel and experience, you'll have to wait for GTAIV. Either that or club yourself in the head until you forget the your experiences with III, VC, and SA, then go and replay them.

I agree with you .The thing is Rockstar a bit hurried with VCS. They should have devoted some more time to make the critics speechless. But alas, that was not to be. confused.gif

Yes, thats right, the current technology donsen't leave much room for expansion or new surprises.

 

Pranjal - Yes, from what I've seen of the bugs in VCS already, they did do a lot of tip-toeing and really should have put an extra month or two into the games development and BETA testing. icon14.gif.

nevermind....I'm wasting my time here arguing with some asshole that has a vendetta against me....bye

Ouch. I'm sorry you couldn't come up with a valid argument at all...but let's not get personal, eh?

 

@jar-jar: I can't recall any of those topics from you. Memory isn't what it once was.

@Sly:

 

I agree entirely. That was my point. It's a handheld game ffs, what do they expect? People ask way too much from R* when it comes to LCS and VC Stories. Enjoy the game for what it is: GTA on the go. And VC Stories is actually more than that. It's innovations add to the GTA series. IMO, VC Stories has a new found depth and extended replay value thanks to the Empire Building alone.

They said that rockstar is flooding the market, and yet according to them neither is any other game puplisher, yet Look at the sims 2, Pets is just out, they've already announced a new stuff pack and another expansion pack confused.gif and Ea also has 8 TS2 Games and EXps in 2 years, so i think that some money exchanged hands bored.gif

The problem is people are looking too much at Rockstar expecting games that always blow our minds. People are expecting too much from Rockstar's prime star, GTA. There's also the PSP factor, compare any PSP variant of a tried and true console game and you can say that its getting stale and isn't revolutionary. Then go and compare these PSP ports to LCS and VCS and you'll see they are leading the pack. LCS and VCS could of just been GTA3 Portable and Vice City Portable as in GTA3 and Vice City ported right over story, characters, the whole enchilada. But no Rockstar used the locations of both games and then came up with new characters in a new story with new content.

I don't want to offend people but I think the next gta need to be waaaay better than SA.I've been playing Scarface and The Godfather for some time now and I had more fun with this game than I had with the gta 3 trilogy.Obviously gta vice is still my nº2 free roam game in terms of feel,story and ''inovation''(After Mafia only,altought its free roam wasn't very fun).But comparing a psp game wich wasn't supposed to inovate the gta world(And it did that with some new features) with what'll be the first next gen gta is a very stupid thing to do.

I don't care if R* came out with 10 more games on PS2. So long as they have new cars, new weapons, and new environments, I'd buy every one of them.

The argument all the gta critics have against us is the shear fact that the new gta's on the current, redeware, legendry, bla bla bla trilogy isnt nextgen. They dont seem to realise that a portable gta was never going to blow home console gamers minds as it's a portable. Think of the that reviewer that gave vcs a low rating. Why, becuase he wasnt impressed at how it didnt match up against saints row on the xbox 360. He was comparing a game on a curent gen portable console against a game on a next gen, superpowered console. People only are critisising gta on the psp becuase it dosnt match up against next gen games that are the same format, stealing cars etc. And becuase the gta's on the psp are like a slightly tweaked version of there counterpart on the ps2.

People who are not hardcore gta gamers simply would not understand the story truly if they had not played all the other gta's.

Its a shame that people can compare gta to next gen games like this.

It still f*cking bewilders me that they can cram an entire current gen GTA experience into your hands, considering just 3 years ago the Game Boy Advance was the cutting edge technology, and it's handheld graphics can only emulate console technology from over a decade ago.

And that you can cram gta on to a portable is amazing. Although thats proabably what you mean, but it makes my blood boil how people can still stand up and critisise this amazing acheivement.

seriously! c'm on! if someone don't like the game we can't just get them to like it! i' myself don't think gta sa had the ''gta feeling'' but i like the game very much anyway! it's the game i have played the most on the ps2!

i also read that rockstar has said that the size of the ''cities'' they make don't matter becouse they found a way to make a really big city on a relative small size! so then i guess they could make sa stories! even if you had to change the umd to go to las venturas from los santos, i would still buy it! and play it! and love it! and people will still say that the game is bad and stuff! i can't actually be really bothered with the bugs in vcs! they are annoying but i can live with them.... cool.gif
