Why does many people here in GTAForums hated GTA 5?

I can't understand it, GTA 5 got the best graphics among all GTA's, and many people here in GTAForums hated it or voted it as their least favorite.

GTA 5 got the best vehicles, and the best weapons. And people still prefer GTA IV or GTA: San Andreas, why?

Because GTA V isn't as legendary as IV or SA

over here. 

 

Over here it's hated but if you look outside this forum a lot of people like GTA V. We're just a lot more vocal about it.

Story that is all over the place with protagonists that don't really evolve. Vehicles that feel the same (atleast IMO), especially all the added ones. Weapons feel the same. Empty, bland map. Online destroying the Single Player aspect in regards over favoring it over making the DLC which were amazing in GTA IV's for example and could've 'fixed' the story at least by a bit.

 

Also the fact that we've been hearing only about GTA V for the past decade (getting on nerves already). All in all a lot of hate is generated towards this game and I for one support it. R* should learn from the mistakes made in V and do better in VI.

Don't forget the multiple patches that have sometimes broken a part of Singleplayer just to add something to online.

Adding salt to injury to the community of players who love Grand Theft Auto for it's core (at least is should be) single-player mode. The question is not why do so many people hate the game. The question is why in the french fry flying f*ck do they like it?

Most people like it, its just this forum that hates it because it wasn't SA 2.0 or GTA IV 2.0. Its overall an amazing game, one of Rockstar's best

I don’t think it’s as hated as some people like to think it is even on this forum. 
 

I stumbled across this thread and yeah I know it’s not the holy grail or absolute proof of what everyone thinks, but the most popular votes are 7 to 8 which reaffirms what I’ve always felt that generally people see it as a good game just not a great one.

 

Most people in this forum besides a very small 1% don’t classify as haters. We have our reasons for not regarding GTA V as our favourite GTA as I’m sure others do if it is their favourite.

 

However I don’t get the “outside of this forum it’s loved and only here it’s hated” mentality as If anything that just proves GTA V really isn’t hated at all and it’s more to do with insecurity and not being able to handle criticism in a hardcore fan environment than some random gaming forum where people might only play a couple of GTA games and be oblivious to the things GTA V fails at compared to the more diehard fans like us who aren’t quite as forgiving.

Because it was such a let down, man.

 

Also, I don't hate the game, I just... don't appreciate it. I like playing this game, but for me this game is nothing special, a let down.

Because GTA IV is better and when a 5 years newer game is downgraded in quality it makes people not like it.

The thing is though tons of people bashed GTA IV as well (basically for not being SA 2.0), like the whole reason GTA V is basically the extreme opposite of IV is because of the backlash it got.

 

Seems like people are never satisfied

Graphics are not important, and it definitely does not have the best vehicles or weapons either (online havins a ton of vehicles doesn't count).

I would but can't, I'm way too drowsy after a round of GTA IV Snore, it's a fine replacement for sleeping pills you see

Indeed, it provides one the calmness that artificial things (like GTA V) can't. Soothe the soul and puts us to rest.

It's not about it being different, it's about the quality. Physics, driving, shooting, hand to hand combat, story writing, NPC AI and the level of freedom in both missions and freeroam are all downgraded. Like obviously some things are just preference, eg some prefer IV's good amount of interiors and very detailed city vs some prefer V's large map and countryside. But this is downgrades to the core gameplay. 

 

I played GTA V before I played GTA IV and never had issues with it before that. After playing 3D era games I was extremely impressed with V and it being different to them was no problem. So it's not a nostalgia thing or a wanting the same thing every time thing. It's simply noticing the flaws and downgrades in comparison to a game they released 5 years earlier.

I visit Los Santos if I want to admire the warm blue skies, the beautiful sunsets and feel warm inside

 

I visit Liberty City if I feel like suffering from chronic depression

Its obsolete game by now with mess story and clunky mechanics.

 

Well its still better than Cyberpunk and Watch dogs, but we have here higher standards thanks to rockstar history.

 

But maybe they pull a trigger and completely rework game to RDR2 engine with online dlcs added to SP so even I consider another buy . 

 

I don't hate GTA V I expected something similar to GTA IV  and DLCs .

GTA V is not San Andreas.

 

OK I don't hate GTA V, I only hate its DRM but seriously something didn't click with me and I don't know what or why.

It's the opposite, some people in this forums seems more into complaining about how much GTA V is hated just because someone "dares" to criticize GTA V

 

I made a similar thread back in 2017, it doesn't go well

I bought GTA 4 just a few days ago because I have never played it. Maybe this weekend I'll have time to get into it.
