I honestly think something wierd/manipulative is going on. Maybe rockstar is doing some kind of political/social commentary about how treating customers/lovers like crap only makes them want you harder, playing hard to get or some crap. It's crazy that people are still saying there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, when there are so many basic flaws.

 

There are a lot of comments like this one too now, and almost every aspect of the game makes me feel this way...

 

[from a thread about the heists being a misleading letdown]

 

Totally agree. Not only the heists, so many other missions in the game (main missions and stranger missions) you did them for nothing. Felt like you were a pushover the whole time.

- No crouching - cover is only allowed on predesignated objects - no help from geography or objects you aren't standing against.

It's really fun when you think hitting the cover button will cause you to duck at something you're facing, only to have it stand you up against something behind/beside you where you're open to fire.

 

It's also really fun not being able to take cover out in the wilderness/on the little islands... yeah, that doesn't break the immersion at all. Totally realistic, 10/10, best game evar, everythings perfect, etc...

- take a cab to an activity. If you have no money, or sometimes just randomly, when the cab drops you off you've already got a wanted level. Your activity marker has disappeared and now you have to run from the area and hide. And then the activity won't show up again for a few more days.

 

Bored on one side of the map, find something to do on the other, only to have it taken away for no good reason as soon as you get there, leaving you stranded with nothing to do in the area. this is the opposite of fun.

My only complaint is the fact that I can't rob a bank. I would like to round up all 3 characters and set something up to rob a bank where everything just ends up to a huge fight outside the bank or a high speed chase. If I wanted to if like to just run into a bank and just rob 1 of the tellers for quick cash an make a get away

Remember that episode of the simpsons where bart was all psyched about a violent videogame, Bonestorm, but he ended up with Lee Cavallo's Putting Challenge?

The people complaining about the lack of money aren't even trying, lol! We have a stocks system for a reason and if you look up tips and videos, you'll find out how to make MILLIONS! Do a mission involving a brand, buy their stocks when they drop, wait for them to shoot back up, sell them... you'll make a large profit. I wish safehouses were in the game so I could use this more as a necessity, but it isn't. I don't run out of money too often either.

I can't think of anything more boring in a game like this than a stock market simulator. I don't care how easy it is to get the hang of, just looking at it and the bland office-work-looking internet interface is depressing.

everybody understands this. It's boring. And bland. And annoying. As f*ck. Not at all something I would ever do for 'fun.'

 

maybe you enjoy it, but I don't, and even the people deluding themselves with the idea that the game is perfect are saying that some kind of other options for money making would be nice.

My only bitch is that my $60.00 copy will cost me $300.00 + when all the DLC comes out.

 

Oh and that little thing where my f*cking cars disappear as if someone is camping my garage out like Its Charlie Sheens and then throwing them over cliffs never to be found again.

Hardly a solution for those with no missions to do that didn't read online guides :s Stock market is entirely mission driven (not just Lester) so for those that finished story before looking up guides it's game over.

 

I just started again to abuse it but it's hardly a decent thing to have to do.

- the hand-holding is atrocious. You can't step out of any of their bounds. can't do what you're told to do until you're told to do it, and if it's a mission where you actually can do something off-plot, you won't get credit for it/you'll fail, and the game won't say why, so you may end up repeatedly failing/getting frustrated by doing the right thing, just 'at the wrong time.' I'm thinking specifically of the flight school garbage.

 

- the missions are all pre-determinned and it feels like you're just tapping buttons through an "interactive" cgi sequence. They'll control when you can or can't run. They'll control when you can or can't draw a weapon. They'll control when you can or can't drive faster than a target. Plenty more examples if you want them. They'll control which characters you can or can't hit/shoot.

 

This thread just reminded me of a perfect example pretty early in the game.

 

http://gtaforums.com/topic/602813-destroying-a-house-video/

 

When franklin hooks the cable between the truck and the porch in Marriage Counseling, and the game tells you to drive to pull it down, the very first thing I did was try to reverse in order to put some slack in the line to give it a real jerk.

 

Well you can't even reverse the truck. You can only do what they tell you to do, how they tell you to do it. Nothing feels free or like you're doing it on your own. Nothing is actually a surprise, all scripted and controlled.

 

It also sucks that there's nothing destructive/interactive like that in freeplay.

 

I was worried before the game even came out when they released the list of random events. How could they be "random events" if everyone gets the same list and it's all plotted out/scheduled/known about?

- No gore

 

- No crumbling brick walls

 

- little bushes everywhere that stop you dead in your tracks/wreck your cars

 

- No crouching - cover is only allowed on predesignated objects - no help from geography or objects you aren't standing against.

 

- No roll button, can't roll without a weapon equiped

 

- No "retry" or "cancel" option until you die or fail a mission.

 

- terrible car/plane/bike handling

 

- No control over what kind of punches or kicks you throw

 

- 3 crashes on a bicycle and you're dead.

 

- No camping like in RDR.

 

- No RDR-style hunting/trade. Takes any sense of purpose out of the hunting.

 

- the text for button prompts and in parts of the pause menus is too small to read - on the biggest tv I've ever owned even.

 

- Forces a boring-ass stock market "experience" on you

 

- Forces the cell phone on you, but the camera won't even save pictures if you're not playing online. Horsesh*t.

 

- the prostitute 'experience' is offensively bad. They don't just hop in your car and get to it, it's a whole cutscene presentation that you can't cancel out of and it's just bad.

 

- They force realism on you in every aspect, but the cars twist/slide on an axis that's floating above the pavement.

 

- You die or get badly injured by slipping/stumbling on a slope, but flip your convertible with it's top down and you can roll around on the back of the car/your head like a turtle, and there's no visible damage.

 

- The cars handle more like bikes in the air than bicycles do.

 

- The explosions are all the same, an ugly effervescent black/yellow, and they transfer from car to car like a ghost. Not real looking at all. Compare them to the ones in Just Cause 2

 

- Compare EVERYTHING about this game to Just Cause 2, which came out 5 years ago... It's amazing how much worse gta is in many basic aspects.

 

- people catch fire like magic

 

- can't get out of a flying/tumbling car until it comes to a complete stop, and when you do, it's incredibly slow.

 

- Can't bail out of a vehicle, even at low speeds, without injury

 

- Near-invisible reticle

 

- Super-sensitive wanted meter, but you can't even aim a gun out a window without it firing automatically nonstop.

 

- No binoculars/telescope and the camera doesn't work offline

 

- Constantly pushing the ifruit crap and other online services even though there's no internet connection.

 

Way too many little things for it to be an accident. It's shady business and I won't support them after this.

 

 

Look at all the recent NSA/prism stuff... If you think rockstar isn't making money on more than just microtransactions, you're an idiot. Play the friend request/life invader mission a couple of times and look at the data farming stuff they're rubbing in our faces.

 

I was under the impression rockstar would be combining good elements from all their games, not just prettying it up and then stifling/throttling the control you have over everything...

 

wow. Im guessing your co-workers call you "negative-nancy" Out of all the baddassery in this game you complain about trivial items including GTAO when it's not even available yet...

the stuff I talk about isn't trivial, it's the basic essentials of good gameplay.

Changing shoes and buying properties 'just to own them' is the kind of stuff I'd consider trivial, and the game is chock-full of that stuff.

-Driving physics suck, motorcycles especially, went from being my favorite in IV to being the opposite in V

 

-Online having more functionality than offline I just hate. After the storyline and sidequest there is basically nothing to do on this map. I want casino's, manage my businesses (collect money at least) or any other reason to travel from point A to point B.

 

For the rest im pretty satisfied, storyline is great, map is great, its just the first two points that bother me.

 

P.S. not getting rewarded for 70% of the missions pissed me off as well

All in all I think R* did a prety good job with this game. Of course there are a few things that could have been better, but not every game is going to please every gamer. For me the biggest gripe I have with this game is the reticle. Not only is it so small it is almost invisible but it is also white which means it blends in easily with the backgrounds...at least give us the option to change the color of it.

Yeah hardly but it gets the job done for me. Extra money for cars and customization...

 

Which brings me to another gripe. Customization is cool and all but it isn't as in depth as I would've liked it to be. Why can't we color our tint, chrome colored rims, have different full body chrome paint jobs, etc? I hate how certain cars don't even have options for exhausts nor bumpers. I would love to change the Exemplar's bumper and exhaust because it looks sh*tty as hell but no... but you can do that to the Rapid GT, basically the same car with two less doors. :sui:

I held the aim button down, then took a marker and drew a dot just under the size of the 'complex' reticle on the screen, then wiped a dot out of the center of that.

- losing more money every time you die than you earn on most missions

 

- pointless properties

 

- the hand-holding is atrocious. You can't step out of any of their bounds. can't do what you're told to do until you're told to do it, and if it's a mission where you actually can do something off-plot, you won't get credit for it/you'll fail, and the game won't say why, so you may end up repeatedly failing/getting frustrated by doing the right thing, just 'at the wrong time.'

They'll control which characters you can or can't hit/shoot.

 

 

- Play any good car game from the 90s or 2000s. Or any game with good plane handling. Or games with motorcycles. The controls in this game should have been better than old games, not worse.

 

 

- They force realism where it's not fun, and remove it from where it would be. You complain about dying to easily on foot and people mock you for complaining about it being too realistic, and then you complain about the totally unrealistic car stuff and they deride you saying It's a video game.

 

- They removed classic car controls, x for gas square for brake, something people really liked/wanted, but force you to tap x for walking/biking. Really takes some fun out of biking.

 

- the fact that you have to sit through the yoga mission. This is nothing less than insulting.

 

- To roll, you must first equip a weapon, then hold one button, then press another. 3-4 button preses for a roll. yeah, real fun.

 

- there's more, much more, it's crazy that people are saying it's perfect. that the cars and mechanics are just right. You're all insane, I can't imagine how sh*tty games are going to be in 20 years withs tuff like this happening.

The very top one i can agree with, i wish the money loss was a little less but... oh well still a super game!

Exactly my point! Also I want to have button that allows me to burp and fart. I also want to kill Amanda! She is a BITCH!

 

Other than that I really enjoyed the game. Might do a second playthrough!

 

That you can't tickle the virtual chickens in this game

 

That you can't just sit around with Micheal, Trevor and Franklin drinking tea and discussing the economy and Football

 

That you can't dive a tractor and plough fields , comon guys even in farming simulator 2013 you can do this

 

That you cant spend hours in realtime just fishing , i mean how boring is it without that

 

and that you simply cant just hug a tree , talk about being upset its just not on

"Jets Run Out Of Fuel In 5 Minutes!"

http://gtaforums.com/topic/597482-jets-run-out-of-fuel-in-5-minutes/

 

I was flying a fighter jet and was flying for literally FIVE MINUTES and my engines cut off for no reason! My jet wasn't damaged or being fired at or even being locked on by a missile. Also, I didn't hit anything midair or stall. What the hell? Are the jets running out of fuel or is it something else?

 

So far this has happened to me twice, once over the ocean, the other over the city.

 

I swear they're deliberately sapping the fun/control out of everything and making the game more about learning to follow orders...

1. Button cheats. Why couldn't they have them in the menu like in RDR? I mean, I've gotten used to my D-pad now, but seriously, why?

 

2. Psychic teleporting f*ck cops. Seriously, every time you run you have to make 60 more turns than nessecary even though the cops shouldn't know where you are seeing as how THEY LOST YOU. That, and you can get a wanted level for crashing an aircraft and sometimes just for looking weird. No, seriously, there's this lady outside the hen house who will just call the cops on trevor because he looks weird. Luckily I was familiar with my d-pad the second time she did it, so I enabled wanted down and then beat her to death. Because f*ck getting a wanted level for stupid sh*t like that. She also doesn't respawn, so bonus!

 

3. Constant auto switching during the story. So they advertise this switching thing as one of the main features of the game, and then every chance the game gets, it auto switches you to one of the guys because it wants to be cinematic. Have some faith in your new features, rockstar. The switching works well, now let me do it by myself.

 

That's pretty much it. I actually really like the game in general, and I can't wait to get back to it as soon as the colbert report and daily show are over.

I just thought of one thing that pisses me off, why can't you re asign controls to what you feel comfortable, all they have is a few presets, I hate where throttle and break is, I want them on the right side D pad !! I feel all wonky when I use L2 and R2 !!

Small rant:

 

I'm glad they wait on PC versions...this will probably be the first GTA I haven't owned.

 

Thrilled that my friend was the guinea pig instead of me.

.

.

.

I put the blame squarely on some fat, lesbian producer...the same types ruining the other franchises with their completely out of touch opinions on what gamers want. Test Drive Unlimited 2 anyone? That's what happens when you put a lesbian in charge of your product that is primarily targeting males, which are by far the biggest segment of the gaming community.
