How many times have you played through the Story? I'm on my 2nd playthrough right now.

Currently on my third playthrough. First time around I lost the Space Docker (before I learned about the save editor), and the second time around is my 98.6% save (my highest one, and all that's left for me to do is the stunt jumps). Both times I've used cheats in between missions, so this time around I'm going for 100% without cheats, or using the save editor.

Whenever I use cheats, I turn off autosave, and avoid saving manually, so it gets saved as 100% cheat free

Just the once bro . Since I first finished it back in November last year, I've not bothered to play it again. I just don't think the story was that good enough to motivate me to wanna play it again like previous GTAs. I also just can't bear to go through all that boring FIB crap again.

Once.

 

Waiting for the PC version. Then I'll blow my load 4 times over until the story is engraved in my mind like a scar. For better or for worse.

I just started my 4th and 2 missions in I asked myself why? Why am I doing this to myself! But I keep going back to it. Something just makes me want to play it.

I've played through it twice. Once when it was released and the second time was around Feburary.

Twice. The second time I 100%'d it and used the stock market tips to amass considerate amounts of cash. Now that that save is gone, i've been doing it all over again.

 

 

really don't want to do the nuclear waste again

Just the once. 100%ed it in less than a month. I'm happy there was the mission replay feature for me to carry out the heists in the alternate way, because there's no way anyone would make me go through the whole story again and put up with mind-numbingly drawn out and tedious missions such as "Scouting the Port", "Did Somebody Say Yoga" etc. The dialogue and script was nowhere as smart, amusing or satirical as it thought it was and it gave the impression that the writers were so far up their own backsides thinking how cool and "with it" they were. I've only been back to play it very rarely for some of the fun missions, but the dumbed down Mario Kart Slot Car physics and the watered down Euphoria engine is a gamebreaker for me when it comes to replay value and just messing around in the game.

Same here and for the same exact reason. I could try to make it sound deeper than it actually is by saying "oh, but California culture is about being so smug and self-absorbed so the game really captured Repo Man LA-weird" but Namor knows what's up. It screamed "this is how funny and topical we are" at around the 74,138th time I heard "millennial f*ckwad" "it's darwin, baby" or "you turd!" No way am I dealing with that again.

I did the same for some reason. Don't know why I always plan to kill Michael cause obviously he needs to die! :) but I always change my mind by the end.

What keeps me from killing any of them is because I know for a fact that after I kill them, I'm going to want them back.

Yeah my friend just said the same thing. He killed Michael and then started again because he wanted him back.

But I have saves of all my 3 100% option C playthroughs so I could easily have killed Mike in one and Trevor in another.

Twice. Once when I had it on the Xbox 360 and once more when I got it for PS3.

Three times and I also picked C in each one.

 

First was focused more on Franklin - skills, hours spent.

Second was focused more on Michael - skills, hours spent.

And third was focused more on Trevor - skills, hours spent.

Completed story twice, currently struggling to complete it a 3rd time (can't be compelled to finish, b/c online is more tempting and the story isn't all that good)

 

1st time, original play through file got corrupted, had to delete.

 

2nd time to make up for corrupted original file.

Once only. I'll play through it again when I'm going for that Solid Gold Baby trophy. I also like to make lengthy reviews, but I, as opposed to anyone else, let the game ripen for a long time. You can be blinded by a fresh game. Give it a year, see how you like it then.

3 times

 

Once on ps3, and twice on 360. I did it the second time on 360 because I wanted to get the unmarked cruiser. Now that I have 6 saved with franklin, three saved with Michael, and one with Trevor, I don't see the need to start another play through. Maybe sometime in the future though

Second time, don't trying to rush it. Taking it slowly.

Your loss, the game has much more to offer than you think. More than Gta San andreas, You get unique dialogue and other fun things. So many details.

First was focused more on Franklin - skills, hours spent.

Second was focused more on Michael - skills, hours spent.

And third was focused more on Trevor - skills, hours spent.

 

Good choices, probably the way that it should be played. Exploring each protagonist.

Once- not in a hurry to play it again funnily enough. Will probably replay when I've forgotten what happens, and choose a different ending this time XD

Believe me, I wish I could have enjoyed this game as much as you and others who love it, but I just can't. It simply did not live up to my expectations or satisfy me for most part. I did a bit of free roaming after finishing V's story, and once in a blue moon I still do - I did some free roam for the first time recently in months.

 

The story in V is definitely not something that I wanna play again, so trust me there is no loss there. If they add more decent SP DLC to greatly improve my experience, then I may play the story again. As it stands now, i just don't feel like it.

 

San Andreas is not my favorite GTA, but I still personally think that SA has more to offer than V does - that's how I felt when I compare my experiences with both games. And guess what ? I only completed SA's story just once too, but only because it took me so long to complete it (I got stuck on one part), and by the time I did, I was beginning to take an interest in the PS3 and next-gen gaming. But I continued to do a great deal of free roaming in SA long after finishing the story, because there was so much to do outside of the story.
