Irrational Annoyances

Recommended Posts

LeakyLine

What little things have annoyed you in the GTA series that probably shouldn't, but do anyway?

 

For me it's civilians in GTA 3 who calmly walk towards you after you carjack them. What are you trying to accomplish? You don't look intimidating. I run them over 100% of the time.

The fact that cops try to arrest you for them running into you.

- The annoying phone calls for hanging out in GTA IV

- The lack of any silenced weapon to avoid the instant wanted stars received at random after shooting a pigeon in GTA IV

- I also find the driving mevhanics of GTA IV very annoying, including the problematic car camera and boat like physics. Bike physics are particularly annoying and really bad.

- Lastly, the traffic AI in GTA IV

-The Driving in GTA IV. it's not even hard to say you have some challenge. Just boat-like annoying. And weird suspension makes all the cars look like lowriders. 

 

-Cops that bump into me but I get a wanted level. 

 

-No Planes in GTA IV. 

 

-The gang territories in GTA SA that sometimes are so small that you can't find 3 members to kill to start the gang war. 

 

-The fact that you can't stand on moving cars without ragdolling off in HD era GTAs. 

 

-lack of cheats in HD era GTAs. 

 

-the phone calls for hanging out in GTA IV. 

 

-Not releasing online DLC vehicles and weapons for GTA V. 

 

-how quickly your car gets destroyed in GTA III.

I don't see how planes are relevant to the game when you have helicopters.

 

OT: How the M16 in GTA III is so powerful. This is a good thing when you're using it, but when it comes to other enemies, you're going to get shredded.

Its irrational things that annoy you even though “they shouldn’t” not actual annoying things.

The term irrational suggests something that doesn't feel logical or reasonable.

In the case of my earlier post, I don't see any logic behind the lack of silent guns that you can't shoot at pigeons without the possibility of receiving police attention. I see it as an annoyance that shouldn't have to. Not talking about the killing itself, but the lack of alternative choices to complete the tasks without inviting any "unnecessary" troubles from the law and order, because evrn from the story standpoint, ULP makes Niko realise the same, "I didn't give you a free pass to act like an asshole. You're bringing a lot of heat [police attention]"

 

Then turning off the cell phone (or sleep mode) will temporarily stop any phone calls for hanging out, but the annoying (irrational) part is that it also stops the calls related to other missions too, and that basically stops me from participating any mission that depends on the phone. If I am using sleep mode to avoid hanging out with friends then  there is no logic to stop everything else that includes story related contacts, or accessing cheats without turning off the sleep mode. Even when I make a call to jacob for drug delivery, the sleep mode turns off, and doesn't stay ON to stop receiving hang out requests; thus an irrational decision - in short.

 

Similarly, the new driving mechanics, and the traffic AI, has some irrational elements in its implementation.

It's like saying we should remove bikes cause we have cars. Planes are a transportation vehicle that EXIST in new york. And irrational means illogical ir unreasonable which doesn't make sense for them to not exist in the game while we had em in VC and SA. (and III as well)

-people who have sth against you and can't STFU.

Unless you are him you probably shouldn't speak on behalf of people on the internet, immediately after my post about how people aren't coming up with "irrational" posts and implying that most people in this thread are just whining about IV and the other games he proceeds to define irrational then justify each of his points. If it wasn't a direct response to me then my bad but it would seem feasible that someone doesn't randomly decide to justify their post. And for the record, @Am Shaegar (who replied while I was typing this lol) I actually do genuinely agree with you, especially on the god-awful traffic AI.

 

By the way, I hope you realise you fit into the half that don't know what irrational means.

-you tell me. What do people buy in clothing stores? What can "sth" refer to? It surely can't be clothes can it? 

 

-'most people in this thread just whine about IV'. Dude. You gotta learn how criticism works. If you can't take it you shouldn't be on these types of forums anyway. People posted "irrational" things about games other than IV as well but it seems like only one group (or shall I say just one person) of people turn totally butthurt when you say sth against their favorite game. 

 

-also I believe I got the meaning right cause I wasn't the one accusing anyone of their "correct" statement regarding the topic and claim that irrational means Like my own made up definition. 

 

I really didn't have anything against you till now but if you keep bringing me up and picking up on me randomly on posts that I don't even mention your name,  things may really change.

I guess this clearly states you're not that good in English and the reason why you get half of my posts wrong. 

Sth is a standard abbreviation for something. It is used in some reference books, such as dictionaries, in order to save space. Another common one is sb for somebody.

yeah please attack me personally for not knowing every single abbreviation ever created.

No actually I didn't start anything. You replied to me going off and speaking on behalf of the other dude. I said people who can't read. Don't know why you immediately think I was talking about you in particular when I was making a general statement about this thread which is why I said "In This Thread". Clearly you have some type of victim complex if you're going to reply directly to me then start crying victim when I inevitably respond because all I do is "bring you up and randomly pick you out" even though I wasn't talking about you, at least not directly. It's quite pathetic to watch someone stoop to that level but what can you do. This world is full of crazy people.

Sth is the most common abbreviation when talking English. If you don't know it you probably don't know any other abbreviation. I'm actually glad this was brought up because from now on I will talk to you with direct formal English so you would get my point. If only I knew you can't understand basic Street English maybe we wouldn't have this many posts about misunderstanding each other in the past. 

 

2)you said you weren't regarding to Am Shaegar. I doubt you were referring to Penguin Bob or others in the thread so it wouldn't take a sec(second) to understand you were talking to me. It's not really that hard based on our history in the past. Don't act like you're the victim here. 

 

@TOPIC

 

-cops in V that can't act like normal human beings and arrest an NPC.

Off topic. 

 

There is nothing wrong with not knowing abbreviations but when he constantly misunderstands my posts (but responds like he totally got them) in multiple threads(while I don't have this problem with anyone else on this forum)it gets annoying and not surprising to blame him for not knowing English. Thanks for reminding me he is Australian because this makes the situation even weirder. 

 

@topic

 

- How slow the cops run in GTA IV while the other peds(even the fat ones)  are pretty fast when they chase you on foot.

Pedestrians in GTA V.Annoying tauting rats, that likes to call police if you look at them.

 

I was infront of yellow jack inn with Trevor, there were some millenials .Trevor walks, they started to be heroes and call instantly police.

 

And the other hand...One fist, and they were down...

Or after you kill the three members it selects an adjacent territory for the gang war,

 

Sometimes you can trigger a war using the roadblock method.  Pulling out a gang member from his car and killing him as usually a few buddies arrive when you do this.
