Does it really deserve to be called Grand Theft Auto 5?

Recommended Posts

Racecarlock

 

I truly must agree. I was saying this (in my head) even before the game was released. It deserves to just be considered a part of the IV generation, with the V generation being reserved for PS4/X1 title(s).

 

The graphics in GTA V are a lot better than they were in GTA IV.

 

So, i don't know what game you're playing, but it's a lot better than it's predecessors and has improved a lot.

 

[real life snip]

[gta v snip]

 

cool story bro

 

That isn't nearly decent. That's a terrible quality image of that scene. I won't argue that GTA V doesn't looks extremely realistic (but it does look a more so than IV), but that pic will really doesn't do V justice

Ok, seriously, do you really expect official game graphics to out class modders who spend most of their time not only making those graphic mods, but making them specifically to cater to PCS with more processing power than HAL 9000?

I'm not sure who's worse:

 

-PC elitists

-Or CoD children...

GTA fanboys are worse than them both

 

 

We're "fanboys" because unlike spoiled little brats, we're actually able to appreciate things that can be achieved on such outdated hardware?

 

Ok then chief.....

 

 

1. Nobody directly called you a fanboy. Just the fact that your concious thought I was directing that remark to you (when infact I was just making a statement) proves that you most likely are one and your sub concious KNOWS you are one. Just a theory chief.

 

2. Appreciate what? The graphics are average seriously guys they are good but you are really overrating this game as a whole. People are actually tolerating the MP or so I hear. It is absolutely unacceptable considering this games budget, 5 years to create + a further 2 week delay for optimizing. Then Rockstar tell you Santa is real ("Sorry guys we didnt know many people would play online despite us making 1 billion profit in 3 days hurr durr") and you all start nibbling away at the bait.

The PC guys are obviously just bitter and angry that our "peasant", 8 year old consoles are still capable of such achievements within the gaming industry.

 

My guess is they're simply frustrated that we are playing this great game, and they can't do anything about it other than..."omgz those graficz r sooo outdated herpy herpy derpy doo"....

 

Look, you PC guys are going to get your release for your precious graphics and mods and blah blah blah, and you'll then be able to constantly feel the need to remind us of your superiority every 5 minutes.

 

So until then, sit down, shut up, and relax.....

I'd probably call the ones who use PCs "hipsters" as PCs have been around since the 80s and smartphones are a newer concept.

GTA on the SuXBOX and PS3N3MA

 

But really, rockstar doesn't have consistent naming patterns. GTA V is GTA V because it's the fifth game in the series to get a number behind its title. You can call it GTA 15 if that floats your boat, but rockstar thought it deserved to be called GTA V.

Graphics aren't the only thing that makes a good game, you know. Hell, I'd go back to SA graphics gladly if it meant far better gameplay.

 

I wouldn't go as far as atari 2600 graphics, but graphics are fine as long as I know what I'm looking at.

Does it honestly matter? We've known it was called Gta V since October 2011, and now after the game is released you question its name?

People who don't see the meaning of this thread...

The problem is not questioning the game for the sake of questioning the game.

The problem is that Rockstar stated years ago that within each new generation the opening game is supposed to be revolutionary. So the leap from II to III was huge because it introduced 3D gaming, third person view, etc...

 

And the leap from III was also huge because of HD and physic and such...

The leap from IV to V wasn't as big as it was supposed to wich is preety much a very pertinent view and legit discuss. The leap from IV to V was like VC to SA, wich makes wonder if it shouldn't be called GTA IV: Los Santos or so...

Yes but why discuss it now after the release, when we had the name GTA V since October 2011?

Rockstar did 1 mistake with Grand Theft Auto V,... GTA: Online. Why not wait with GTA:Online for next gen.? + they could focus more on the singleplayer and make it even better as it is and add more stuff to singleplayer. The multiplayer should have stayed as it was in IV, until VI

"IGN: One of the first things that I noticed when the game was announced is that you chose to call it GTA IV. Was that to say that this is kind of the first true sequel where you guys are taking as big a leap as you did from GTA 2 which was top-down to GTA III, which of course was of course 3D and open world?
Dan Houser: Yes, definitely. Exactly that. We certainly did our best to make sure that Vice City and San Andreas felt fresh and exciting, but the problem was GTA III was already pushing the hardware so hard. The improvements tended to be in production values and scale... We wanted it to feel like the transition from 2D to 3D was seismic. We wanted a transition that felt as seismic, that felt as big this time."

V doesn't even feel like a GTA game & the characters are so lame.. San Andreas was the last legendary game of the series.

IV is boring as f*ck!

I don't have any problem with it being called GTA V. GTA: Los Santos sounds so bland and generic.

I play PC games the most and i think whoever's comparing the MODDED version of GTA4 to console version of GTAV is retarded. I'm pretty much sure that when GTAV got released on PC and if people can mod it like GTA4 then it will look miles better

 

And GTAV deserves its tittle because it's a huge leap in gameplay and many other aspect, even the graphic alone is amazing, i couldnt believe they can make the game so beautiful on old hardware, comparing V to 4 on the same console, V looks so much better

It is a gigantic leap forward, everything's been vastly improved and overhauled for the better. Also, I like to compare the leap from IV and to V like the original GTA to GTA2. That's a more fair comparison than III to IV. I mean IV wasn't on the same hardware as III now was it.

 

I really don't understand the hate for this game. I was a skeptic at first too, but when I got my hands on V and actually played the game. I fell in love with it. It sure as hell deserves to be called "GTA V" imo.
