No,.. if its part of the story whatever, if one of the characters is gay, whatever,. I dont care.

better get your game on in real life,. However since the major gta online populace are wannabe trolls that get their self esteem from 'owning' little kids that tend cry when they lose,. I'd say heck, cater the troll, and give him something worth living for,.

 

And hey, maybe a gay twist will get some of em outta the closet.

Even though Michele turned out to be a cop i still missed our dates lol sounds silly i know but i think i would definitely date someone if i could take them to golf etc etc and have a lot of unique conversations you wouldn't have heard otherwise, i have no interest in them actually f*cking on screen or anything, just some companionship would be cool.

Yes they should return, it adds characterization.

I would say yes

BUT

They have to have some sort of benefit to dating them so it's not just a useless time-waster. Nowadays the new GTA games hand everything to you on a silver platter, but in GTA SA it was always a priority for me to date Katie so I can keep my weapons if I die.

Bump but yeah I'd love to see them return.

 

I wouldn't mind just one story girlfriend like Eady from Heat. Unaware of our protagonists occupation until the end would be a very interesting twist. But having multiple girlfriend options would also be cool. Their benefits should be useful though it shouldn't just be one thing you only use once like Alex in GTA IV who gave you a discount on clothes.

 

Also since V introduced NPCs living in our homes Michael with his family, Trevor with Wade and then Floyd, we should be able to have our girlfriends move in/kick them out lol.

I think just girlfriends might be kind of limiting but I'd be down with something like the friends system in GTA IV only more in-depth. Like, maybe you get in good with a group of street racers or car thieves and you get a discount on vehicles and upgrades but also get a better payout when you sell them you're boosted cars. Or a dirty cop you can call to get your wanted level removed.

 

These could maybe even replace the sidequests. You do a handful of missions for a potential ally and get a reward at the end. It's always bugged me how the side missions in GTAs always have such anticlimactic endings. You do a bunch of tedious tasks for an annoying a-hole and then it's over.

 

There's got to be some kind of trade off, too though, I think. Maybe you work for one person or group and another person or group won't work for you. Like you align yourself with one crew and you inherit their enemies too.

As long as they are not mandatory for the story  and are atleast somewhat interesting then sure why not. They've never caused me any problems other than a love metre dropping which isn't hard to raise again and the perks are normally pretty good.

 

I just wish they would more benefits than minor boosts like health or removing wanted levels. I want to exploit the love of a daddys girl to gain access to her parents villa and have access to their private helicopter. Or go for the biker girl in leather who convinces her overprotective brother and his small gang to be nice to me when i'm on their turf.

Perhaps include some trashy girls as girlfriends who get drunk easily and cause fights, make a huge mess of everything in sight and see no shame in flashing at people when intoxicated for the sake of a cheap giggle.

I don't think dating should be a part of the gameplay like it was in GTA IV but I'm fine with the characters having relationships or whatever as part of the story, but like, if it's gotta be in there put it in as cutscenes. Niko's relationship and then being betrayed by Karen felt kind of shallow because we spent like 2 and a half missions of them dating and it didn't feel like there was much there in the first place

 

If there's one really good thing about V's three character system it's that you can have the main characters doing things while you're not controlling them even by showing us the tail end of the characters hanging out with their friends and family it lets them imply that these relationships are active without having to have us, the player, sit through the whole thing every time.

I wouldn't mind being able to date girls/guys, as long as it's purely optional and not required to 100% completion of the game.

Yes, but if they try to hide chocking contents (no hot coffee style mod for example)

Simple stuff maybe have some transitions of the protagonist in bed with his girlfriend spooning/cuddling or maybe after loading up the game during mornings they're both lying in bed naked but you cant see anything revealing.

Not a deal breaker, but if the girlfriend system from IV can be reintegrated into VI and offer at least as much depth and entertainment value, then why not?

You just did a heist/big crime, your face is all over the news, and now your relationship is in shambles.

GTA is satirical. Sometimes humour and satire cross streams in slapstick situations, for example giving your girlfriend a bunch of flowers, and then hitting her with a golf club because she talks too much? Or hitting your boyfriend with a laptop because...well frankly, because he's a dick?

 

Do we want more of this ridiculous, poor taste social commentary...?

 

 

 

 

Yeah, alright then.

Don't really care either ways. I am fine with them as long as it isn't forced onto you with nagging phone calls and with a deteriorating relationship bar.

Protagonist gets released from prison. His boyfriend from prison gets out from prison later on in the story and chases after the protagonist lmao.

Ain't gonna work for you cause you're black. 

 

Only if it's done right. 20 years of R* games and you can barely see them do female characters right let alone girlfriends and romantic scenarios. So I'm cautious on this one. They haven't done this right from a gameplay perspective nor a story perspective right before. Do it right or just ignore it and focus on more important sh*t.

Yeah sure why not. I liked how in GTASA each girlfriend would give you something as a reward for maxing out the relationship. In general I'd love to see more interactions and hanging out with friends in next GTA.

GTA IV had the best formula. A huge improvement over the “girlfriends” in San Andreas.

 

I’m not really sure how much further they could really push it though. I don’t want some Romeo and Juliet type sh*t, but at the same time it helps add to immersion and believability and it’s one of the things I love about GTA IV.

 

It’s just one of those things that’s nice to have, but not entirely necessary.

I really don't see much difference between SA and IV in this regard. I still think the system sucked in both SA and IV. There was nothing to it other than unlocking their perks. Which was frustrating by the way. In both games. The girlfriends and their comments still looked generic and robotic as f*ck.(except some the occasional dialogue in IV) I want R* to neglect this aspect if it's not done with depth. Sure I don't want a sh*tty dramatic love story but I don't mind a meaningful interesting dynamic between two people in that way if it's done right.

Structurally both systems work similarly, but the key difference is the girlfriends much like the friends in GTA IV have more depth to their characters.

 

I’m not going to get into whether you should like these characters or not as that’s subjective, but it’s clear R* put more effort into the writing and made the girlfriends feel more like substantial characters than the robotic girlfriends in San Andreas that barely put a sentence together without sounding like the actors sounding like they were bored as f*ck when recording the lines.

 

If depth is what R* should be pursing than GTA IV in this regard at least should be the model to build off. GTA V completely gutted the girlfriends system entirely and churned up a watered down friends system which I think most people would agree was a step backwards. What was the point of taking out the girlfriends, but leaving the friends in with less functionality than the previous system offered?

 

As I said above I just see these things as something that’s nice to have, but it’s not really necessary. If GTA VI launched with no girlfriends and/or friends it wouldn’t bother me that much, but I don’t want to see how it was handled like in GTA V which seemed like applying a band aid than an actual solution.

 

Realistically R* wouldn’t make it any more in depth than they would as they probably know it’s not really a major feature that people desperately want, but what they had in GTA IV was still better than what came before and after and should be the foundation.
