[ZERO!] Counting Down To Los Santos

Recommended Posts

Cylan

When I saw those screenshots, it hyped me right up again. I had a gut feeling that the game wouldn't be released for a while, and therefore it was kind of pointless to get excited, but those screenshots looked awesome. It's amusing to look back and remember how none of the sites I followed thought that the guy holding an AK was a playable character. Hell, I saw speculation that you could play as a police officer and Trevor was just some generic thug. Oh how the tables turned.

I remember thinking for the longest time that Trevor in the night picture was actually Franklin (or "the black guy" as we knew him as back then). It wasn't until I saw a post that edited the shades and colours that I saw he had balding hair and was clearly WHITE. How silly of me tounge2.gif

 

Those screens hyped me up so much, and looking back on them they seem to basic/simple compared to the information and videos we have been given now. Love looking back on these days, good memories.

Those hedges in the tennis screenshot looked awful and I'm glad that they changed it in the second trailer.

I like this because it reminds me of how far I've come since GTA V was announced.

 

I was at a nearby McDonald's, using the wifi on my laptop. I was on facebook, saw the post from R* games, and thought "FINALLY!" (kind of funny, I was already losing patience before it was announced, thinking "Come on, where is the next game? At least announce it already! Finally they did, and even though I anticipated it, I was still pleasantly surprised. It was official.)

 

I had just gotten a job as a busser at a restaurant, after a summer of being unemployed, having my utilities cut off repeatedly, sleeping on a couch, having my friend who I lived with mad at me, and almost getting evicted. But at least I had found a job, as lowly of a job as it was). I was still very broke, probably oredering off the dollar menu at that crackhouse of an establishment.

 

Now, I'm less than a month from it's release. I got promoted to being a waiter in the spring of 2012, I'm navigating this forum from the comfort of my own room, with my own high speed internet instead of the bowels of society that McDonald's is, I've saved up a good amount of money, and I've bought myself some nice things. I've paid back my roommate for the time when I was a bum, and now I'm helping him out when he's low on money, and I dropped $20 on a preorder of the CE. I'll have no trouble paying $50 more when the game is released. But I might have a problem getting the 17th off, since my congress-like coworkers are taking vacations left and right around that time.

Interesting read, now rob some banks and manipulate the stock market!

Can we change the title to "24" yet? smile.gif Otherwise, what's the point of having a UK countdown timer at the top? It becomes redundant if we don't maintain that consistency.

 

Sorry if I seem like a desperate crack whore, I get off at the sight of this thread's countdown decreasing day after day.

 

 

You know that topic "Post countdown picture relevant to days remaining" or something? When that thread was created, GTAV was about double the days away that it is now. So if you think that time period has passed by quickly, just think of how we'll be celebrating on Sept 16 in no time.

I was at basic, finishing up Victory Forge. I couldn't have cared less about petty games at the time. Me and a battle buddies discussed how we couldn't wait, but other than that, I never thought about it.

I think what you mean is go to WORK for a bank and then rob customers and tax payers when you decide that greed supersedes need bored.gif

 

25? 24? days, still 26 *here*....Because of differences in time/day, for those that are a day ahead of me, will you look up *tomorrow's* winning lottery numbers? lol.gif

I didn't care at all about the previous screenshots before this batch, but these were the ones that really got me excited. Especially that one of Franklin racing up Chiliad(?), and the wide angle parachute one. Reminded me of a combo of SA and RDR, which is obviously awesome.

Damn, almost two years since the first announcement? It was like yesterday, especially since the reveal of the "Transport" shots, still can't believe how fast time passed since last August (when we were like a gaziilion of months with litterally zero info, ah the frustration).

 

I recall being a much different person back then, with a pretty different mentality and taste upon many things in my routine. Literally grew up with GTA V lol.

 

Anyway:

 

Where were you? - Home.

What were you doing? - Surfin' the net, and playing Uncharted 2 i believe. (or it was MGS4 around that time? i don't remember).

How did you find out the news? - Randomly cheched R* website.

What was your first reaction? - Extremely hyped, i went berserk. Freezed when i saw the black BG with the GTA V logo on, went many sleepless nights until the first trailer reveal.

Were you a member of these forums? - Yup, since '08.
