Why does many people here in GTAForums hated GTA 5?

I love it a lot but I won't be able to play enhanced version because lack of dx12 and vulkan api on my pc.

Also I can't run the dx10 version on my pc due to slow hdd, in a bit of financial trouble as well.

But my love for this game is stronger than all racing games I love, its that good.

Tried for a week in March 2020 first time if I remember but deleted it because I have 5400 rpm hdd.

Also integrated Intel graphics, no Nvidia or AMD gpu here. Hoping for good days to come again Jaedan 101.

And everyone stay SAFE.

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

I don't hate it. I've just got mixed feelings about it. The story is the biggest let-down for me.

Not really. I appreciate and respect the fact that they tried. Everything doesn't turn out perfect 🤷‍♂️

Most people like it, its just this forum that hates it because it wasn't SA 2.0 or GTA IV 2.0.

It's not just GTAForums. There's people on Reddit that hate it too. Some Users on there constantly sh*t on GTA 5.

I personally don’t hate it. Why? Because life is too short for hate. Especially when it comes to a video game. However, I still think it’s relatively weak in comparison to the previous GTA titles from 3 to CTW as far as storyline and characters go. It seems as if it was meant to appeal more towards the futuristic CoD crowd (to an extent) with all of those government missions rather than the actual GTA crowd, which is why many GTA fans don’t like it as much. However, all of this is solely my perspective rather than factual info in any sense of the word.

graphics aren't everything.

 

best vehicles? best weapons? what makes you say that? the amount of ugly supercars and the guns that all feel like cheap plastic toys?

 

where IV lacks in quantity it makes up for it in quality. cars in IV are very enjoyable to drive. they feel heavy and actually have some weight to them. the weapons in IV are also enjoyable to use and pack a punch.

 

GTA V gives people a sour taste because they notice the finer details in the game mechanics. how NPCs don't stumble around when you push them, how cars don't take nearly as much damage as in IV, etc.

 

there are SOOOOOO many reasons not to like V, scattered all over this forum

One thing I would say is there's also lots of good things about GTA V and I'd never try to convince someone they shouldn't enjoy it (hell I enjoy a lot about it myself). But the reasons for some people disliking it or wanting to vocalise why they dislike it are quite easy to see.

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

 

Yeah. It feels like there's usually one of these threads every week. 

 

It's ironic because these guys that keep complaining about how much it's "hated" could be doing their part by making some more positive contributions themselves instead of baiting people into potentially more so called "hate". It's funny when you think about it.

 

I could get this maybe 5 years ago when it was at its height (the debates I mean), but I don't think it's that bad anymore. Most people have moved on for whatever reason.

just a reminder, don't debate or attack me because I liked GTA 5 so much as my OPINION

 

GTA IV is one of the best games that I ever played. But I say that GTA 5 is better than IV (in my opinion)

I'm not telling that I hated IV, I'm just telling that GTA 5 is way better than IV.

 

and its sad that there are only a few people here who loved GTA 5 so much, and thousands who liked IV or SA so much.

GTA 5 vehicles and weapons has realistic details.

 

I also loved the vehicles in IV, but I still go with GTA 5. It got the best handling and it got the best models. In IV, the car handling is a bit poor

I prefer GTA 5 weapons because they got good fire rate, range and other stuff, you can even customize it! in GTA IV you can't, i prefer GTA 5's weapons, BUT not just that, I also prefer TLAD's and TBOGT'S weapons, they are the best.

Except no one’s attacking you or your opinion lol. I mean you’re the one who made the thread so what do you expect people to do? If you start a thread then be prepared for what’s to follow.

 

And I don’t see why it’s sad if people like GTA IV and/or San Andreas more. If you’re about opinions then surely you would be able to respect that instead of making it seem like it’s wrong to prefer GTA IV or San Andreas..

I don't get this "GTA IV sucks because GTA V is mechanically better" mentality. Couldn't these people say the same for GTA 3 and Vice City by this logic?

 

"Everyone who thinks GTA 3 is a good game are kidding themselves. Liberty City is so drab and grey compared to Vice City which is colorful and vibrant. Claude has no personality and just nods his head, Tommy has tons of personality and talks all the time. There's so many side missions in Vice City so you're always busy whereas in Liberty City you have five or six side activities tops which get repetitive. Money in Liberty City means nothing since there's nothing buy compared to Vice City where there's so much to purchase! GTA 3's plot is so cliché, a revenge story? Tommy trying to build up his criminal empire after losing his boss's money is way better."

 

I wonder if they realize the double standard with their arguments when they defend V this way. Is V mechanically better? I'd say yeah, but that doesn't mean you can't think IV was more fun or entertaining in it's own way, the same way GTA 3 can be relative to Vice City. It honestly comes down to preference at the end of the day which GTA game you're going to prefer.

for me gta sa has a better story, better variety of missions, weapons and vehicles, better map, more and better secondary missions, great customization of your character and cars, skill for cars, motorcycles, planes and weapons, etc, etc, graphics are not everything.

We had a GTA V Praising Thread

Guess who had to double post in it just to keep it alive........that's right, ME!

When a vocal GTA V critic like me is trying to keep its praising thread from dying instead of the hardcore fans, then you know something ain't right with the argument of this game getting too much "hate".

Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting every fan of GTA V should be in that thread pushing it to 150+ pages like we did with the complaint thread but if people aren't gonna promote the love of GTA V then people don't get to complain why there is so much "hate" and not enough love for this game.

I don't quite understand purpose of this thread...

 

A lot people doesnt like or hate gta v, all right, thats good because they can have opinion.

 

These opinions have weight, because are after these years are pretty sumarized and explained. They are not trash talking...

 

You have opinion also, and thats good too. A lot people have same opinion too..

 

 

What you exactly want, you write topic you will cry and now your think that everybody takes turn back? This forum luckily isnt twitter or facebook...

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?

Because people appreciate the overall package and the new additions it brings, its a very good game relax son.

It's not like people here hate GTA V but many of them express legitimately their negative opinions about certain aspects of the game. I myself did it many times. What's the best way to describe in short what's wrong with GTA V? Imagine your friend showing you picture of super sexy girl and saying that he can get you a date with her but when you come to pick her up you find out, that it's just a cardboard and it lacks depth, literally.

Good graphics doesn't make a good game and the selection of cars and guns is personal preference, I'd favor the IV weapons too and miss some cars. None the less V is a great game but I understand other people's point.

Like I said, I knew there was going to be a topic about this.

 

Why I knew? He had another topic called "Which GTA game has the worst story", almost all of the votes were GTA V.

 

That probably made him create this topic.

I don't hate GTAV, but both the world, gameplay and story have this 'empty' feeling for me. Whereas GTAIV for example was full of life in all aspects(ok gameplay wss clumsy but it was 2008). GTAIV had those small details which really drew me in. GTAV was just missed opportunities imo.

 

I can't say I hate a game that I have played countless times on xbox360, ps4 and X1X....I would probably do a PC run aswell.
