Instant death from car crash

Recommended Posts

trevor2smokes

Does anyone else hate that? I feel it is a waste of money on the cars to put mods on them and then just die from crashing to fast. I completely stopped driving them for that reason.

Oh boy another one joined just for the pure reason of nitpicking. If you keep crashing its your fault, dont drive like a jackass if you dont want to loose your car.

Not a fan of it myself but there is no permanency to the negative effects of said instant death.

 

If it happens to me, this is usually what causes me to perma rage quit for the day.

I never get the impound system. I go there and nothing happens. No way to get any car back. I park at the garage hit all the buttons and nothing happens.

It's not nitpicking. It happens waaay to often. It's annoying. Especially when you are not going fast and you still fly right through the windshield. Physics really make no sense.

So you're saying after losing a car, and then going to the impound, it's not there? If a car icon shows up, you can retrieve whatever is in there by hitting right on the D-Pad. If there is no car icon, then there is no car in there to retrieve.

Well from what I've seen he only joined to nitpick. Plus it has been here since IV, the whole feature is based around the fact to limit you from driving like a goddamned Jackass, either its this or your car getting lit up from such a hard crash.

I swear sometimes I'm going insanely fast and survive, other times I'm going noticably slower and die. It can be annoying but I usually just laugh it off "damn it, I did it again"

As far as I know, you don't get instant death in IV. If it was the same way in V, I wouldn't complain.

Yeah my impound has never worked. Everytime I die in a car I go there, with the impound logo, and nothing happens. I hit right but nothing. I have called rockstar and the person said and I quote " we don't deal with gameplay" I was astounded by his reply.

It`s kind f*cking stupid to have an instant death windshield ejection every now and then but at the same time all the cars are f*cking sherman tanks and only take damage from rolls/jumps/trains.

Are you talking about when you crash through the windsheild or how normal crashes reduce your health?

 

I've never crashed enough, or in a short span of time to die - especially with the 50% health regen.

 

Crashing through the windsheild though, that f*cking sucks. You have to have the highest armor to survive it. Still, I think it's pretty dumb that it kills you instantly. It's even worse with the new Wasted screen. There are a lot of things in the game that make me label it as GTA: No Fun Allowed Edition from time to time, but I still love it.

Okay, i'll make a bet with you. I'll crash into a tree going about... lets say 50? If you don't get launched out of the car and get killed, i'll pay for your hospital bill and anything else you need.

 

Or lets say, we crashed into a car going maybe... 40? If you don't smash your head off the windshield and suffer severe brain damage, i'll again pay for everything.

 

Lastly, lets say we crashed into a pole going... 60? If you don't get smashed into a million f*cking pieces, then I don't know what to tell you.

I hate it too, that took some of the GTA feeling away.

@Blingy:

The fact that people want GTA to be too realistic is what kills the fun.

People want realism, and then bitch when they get what they want.

in IV you didn't die straight away unless you hadn't munched on a hotdog and had very low health

 

in V it doesn't happen as much in crashes, but yeah you die straight away most of the time, and not necessarily going that fast either

I hardly crash my cars even with my 8 year old, beaten and battered xbox controller's analog stick :/

 

You're simply a bad driver my friend...

 

What bothers me more is jumping into the ocean from high up in a helicopter causing instant death :(

Oh boy, Tenxax has gone back to his old ways. Please don't start being a pure douchebag again, please don't!

 

OT: I do hate this but I rarely do hit somebody at high speeds as I'm already too OCD on dinging up my car. It is so annoying when it happens though. Its inconsistent too.

For example, I have rammed cars quite a few times and did not have problems. But I was in a rush on a backroad at night, heading into Los Santos in an azzuro blue Carbonizzare. Well I was going about 75 mph. The road was dashed and so I veered onto the left lane and tried to pass a slow driver. Out of nowhwhere some idiot appeared and I hit him. So I died instantly by flying out of the windshield. I died before even hitting the ground. How ludicrous and rubbish is that? That really f*cked up what I was try to do. 75 mph and I fly out the window, and die? But I can go 120 in a sedan and will not even fly out if I hit someone or thing.

Can only remember this happening maybe 2 or so times, it's pretty rare and if anything getting into car accidents should damage the player more.


It makes car chases more intense, when you have to quickly get out of the way because one bad move can mess you over.

I hate it to be honest, and it's not because we're bad drivers, but it's the fact that the game became too realistic, which eliminates the fun completely.

 

Don't get me wrong, I did want realism too, but when certain things happen (e.g I was going for that stunt jump at Rockford Plaza, and so I almost succeded, thing is I hit a pole mid-air, and BAM!!! Out the wind-sheild, and instant death, it's like the car lost all it's weight mid-air), it kills the mood most of the time, and the game becomes surrealism.

 

Oh yeah and hitting a another car on it's side while going atleast past 120mph will cause both cars to explode, like WTF....

The first time I played through the game I got wind shield cannoned maybe twice. Every time after that play through it happens every 5 minutes.

Yeah, wtf is the problem? Why can't they just add goddamn seatbelts into the cars when it's a standard safety device in today's cars? It's pretty annoying to see the character(s) to move their upper body forward every time I brake the goddamn car.

I die when I max the speed out and I hit anything even a telephone poll. Realism makes the game suck. I play video games to escape reality and they just bring it back like wtf. I do not get why people say its rare. Whats rare is the cutscene of trevor flushing the foot down the toilet. Switch to trevor repeatly for hours and still have never seen it.

Seatbelts is what we definantly need up in this b*tch

 

It can't be that hard to make an animation for the character to put a seatbelt on.... Right?

 

Lol I meant to quote from "Yeah" to "car."... My mistake

I usually laugh when it happens, I mean how many "OH SHI...!" moments are in GTA other than being flong from your car that was just going 100-120mph.
