I Love GTA 5 Story Forever

Recommended Posts

JohnStatistics

Good Evening everyone, I just thought I would make a post on how I love GTA 5 story mode, I have to be on my 10th playthrough, there is just something I can't explain but will any or is there any game as good as GTA 5 Story Mode? It is hard to explain but I love how long the Story is, the atmosphere, I just think it's the best game I'll ever play and wonder how it will be beaten. I will confess and I don't care if I get laughed at I get so engrossed into the story it feels like I am actually there? It is really hard for me to explain but I have completed it like 10 times and I am again going to start it from the beginning, I just love how I forget everything and it kills so much time, sorry if I sound crazy but does anyone agree with me? I feel so relaxed and happy when playing the story, my mind gets lost in it, Michael Franklin Trevor Lamar Lester. 10/10 for GTA Story and I'm just wondering if any of you know of a better game?

 

I've never played Red Dead Redemption but have heard that is good, it's going to take a lot for a game to give me as much enjoyment and time than what GTA 5 Story has

I completely agree. I find the story to be an incredible amalgamation of action, drama, government intrigue, heists, and for the first time in GTA history, one of the protagonists has an actual family that is heavily involved in the plot. GTA V gets a lot of credit for the graphics, the amazing map, gameplay, the myriad of side mission variety, and the reward system and properties. But it's easy to forget how incredible and engrossing the story is as well.

I can't say I agree with you, I certainly do not agree, sorry. In my view, V has the weakest story in the main series. It was entertaining enough by normal gaming standards, but by GTA standards, it was very average, which is not a good thing in my books. But I'm glad you have enjoyed it at least, that's always a good thing if you are satisfied with what you got in the end.

 

I'm just wondering if any of you know of a better game?

 

Since you asked, I'd say that in the current HD era and GTA-wise, GTA IV has a much better story than GTA V. IV's story is less comical, less goofy, with much a more darker, and serious tone to it, and it focuses much more on theme traditional GTA themes of organized crime and gangs, which I like best. But that's just my opinion based on my preferences and what I like, however you can always see for yourself by playing IV to compare. IV also has great DLC too (EFLC), so you should try that also.

RDR is a brilliant game, a masterpiece in fact and Rockstar's best game of the HD -era so far. I definitely believe that has a much better story than V, and I certainly enjoyed RDR''s story a lot more than I did V's. However, I will concede that some people may not like it - for instance, you may not like it if you're not into anything Western, or you don't like the idea of riding horses in video games.

RDR is a better story but you have to get attached to the characters. GTA IV is great storywise if you combine it with the DLC and play them in timeline order.

 

And then there's non-Rockstar titles, few gems out there which have a better story than GTAV.

GTA V's story is better than most other open world games. I mean for all the gripes I have with it at least it has exceptional dialogue even if most of the characters irritate me to no end. However GTA IV, RDR and I would even through MP3 in there too are the best stories of R*'s recent stable to me.

 

I would probably rank GTA V's just outside of that bunch.

Obviously "which story is better or worse" is a matter of opinion. I think that V is an excellent example of GTA storytelling, and while I think it is a lot better than IV's, I know that some people prefer a more dark and gritty story, such as the one in IV. I can't argue for or against this, only say that it depends on one's tastes. I never played RDR so I cannot comment on how it compares to V.

OH COME ON, DO NOT start V vs IV argument here too! you (Official General and Ash and Chirovette too) have already trashed enough with those boring walls of text bashing eachothers opinions, ENOUGH!

to the topic: Yes this is great story for GTA game with it's quirks and flaws but also comedy and fun to it.

Hold on, why are you mentioning my name ? I never started any bullsh*t IV vs V argument, and nobody else did either. The OP asked for a personal comparison of how V compares to IV, because he wants to check if he's missed out on anything, as he's not yet played IV.

 

Did you not read the OP properly ? Don't think you did :blink:

and Chirovette.....

Really? I only said that V is a great game with a great story, AND I actually defended IV in a way by saying that it is all down to personal taste which story is better.

 

Seriously, please read the people you choose to admonish a little closer.

the fact you even started to talk about IV in every damn topic is damn wrong and making me irrational from anger, if you want to see more logical posts from me PLEASE stop talking about GTA 4 vs 5, OP did not BTW ask about gta 4, just any game, damn poison is this place for nerves!!!

You already got yourselves topic to trash: " why is gta 5 hated so much"

EDIT: gotta add aswell that official general only assumed the OP asked about gta 4 when they only mentioned RDR and gta 5 in whole post. Since General loves gta 4 so much they were blinded and started rambling on about this game and then 2 other parties (chiro and ash) joined for the "party" as well and i knew this is only few posts away from full 4vs5 textwar. even tho chiro did not post any textwalls of warcraft here yet he was ready to start the war as i've seen it on the other topics!

Now I'm quoting you too since the others did! :p

 

...though yeah no one is doing IV vs V other than ChiroVette, the op mentioned RDR saying they've heard good things about it and I was just affirming that to me, RDR does have a better story.

Not true, or did you forget your own post, before my comparison to IV?

 

GTA IV is great storywise

It really would've been better if the OP was just discussing the story itself (then again my "Official GTA V story appreciation thread" already covers that) rather than asking for further recommendations on other games with a better story and since that's highly subjective it's only going to cause drama.

Now, you may be completely immune to oversaturation, but my advice would be to slow down a bit. The last thing you want is to burn yourself out on something that you truly love. Taken in moderation, a great single-player game can be enjoyed for many years--decades, even.

You appear to be from Estonia. I don't think you understand English properly. You sound confused. I'll just leave it here.

If you paid proper attention to my posts in general, you would have known IV is not my favourite GTA. Its Chiro that always seeks to compare IV to V in nearly every thread he graces, but in this case no one has done that here. Like I said, I suspect you don't understand English properly, because if you read the OP properly, you would not have come out with this rambling bullsh*t.

Lol you're blaming the innocent here, only you tries to blame me, you're are emotionally attached and you are clearly a troll

You call someone a troll and insist just one line later to stop flaming each other? That's pretty ironic.

 

Anyway I don't see the point of this thread anymore. I'm already being generous with the "Why is GTA V hated so much" thread enough as it is.

 

Sorry OP. I hope you got at least some information that could be of use.
