GTA V is empty compared to GTA San Andreas or Red Dead Redemption 2

I decided this was the best forum to set up the topic i am sorry if it isn't.

 

 

I have finished 2 games by Rockstar, GTA V and Rdr2, and i am playing San Andreas.

 

 

To me, the world of GTA V is kinda empty when compared to these games. Outside of missions there is very little to do. Exploration is basically pointless.

 

Meanwhile the world in RDR2 feels alive and full. There is always something to do. Bounties, hunting, fishing, robberies, something for everyone. I have finished the main quest, done the 70 gold medals achievement, and yet i am very very far away from being anywhere near having done everything availaible.

 

Same with GTA SA there is a lot to do.

 

 

I dunno why people say GTA V is so good. Imho it's very empty compared to these games. There is basically nothing to do.

A lot more care and effort went into RDR2 than GTA V or really any other Rockstar game. The wildlife, interactive NPCs, random events, and the level of detail in general just make it a superior game to many of us.

I think V suffered a lot because it was made with singleplayer dlcs in mind, but they were never released in the end. I think with RDR2 the team knew they aren't going to expand the SP part post-release, so we got a much larger campaign, with an epilogue that feels like a short game of its own.

Play GTA Online instead of GTA 5 Story Mode

I completely agree. Modding is the only reason I still play GTA V occasionally. After finishing the story, the few side missions available are so boring that I didn't even care to play them.

I never understood this statement. GTA V has a lot of side content when you compare it to the other entries in the series. The only GTA that slightly beats it in this regard has to be GTA San Andreas. You can look at the list of things the two games have available for you to do and you find identical results. The quality of the content though is another thing to discuss. RDR2 definitely takes longer than the other two to complete but while I found RDR2 to be an exceptional game I found a lot of the side content (those f*cking challenges) to be tedious.

 

But I 100% agree with the world feeling lacking compared to RDR2 and SA. While I found the map to be more interesting than most other GTA games and being very accessible and masterfully designed for fun, it does feel lacking and empty at times and that's clearly because of lack of interiors and having only one city.

I don't understand one thing. People always praise 3D Era Grand Theft Auto games for having these side-missions, but to be honest, nobody really enjoys doing them.

I don’t.

 

There’s really maybe a couple of side missions/activities I really enjoy from the 3D era, but the large majority of them are tedious, overrated and just not very fun. Having more means jack sh*t to me.

 

I feel ever since GTA IV across every every R* game made since the side missions/activities are generally better fleshed with alot more thought put into them. They even have a better sense of context IMO.

 

You won’t see HD era protagonists delivering pizzas or fighting fires for no reason. Just about every side mission/activity is usually explained away by the narrative.. It’s more immersive and gratifying if you ask me than just a bunch of random side missions/activities being thrown in for something to do.

That's what I think. Every single side-mission in any 3D Era Grand Theft Auto game is meaningless and annoying as hell.

The ones I did were mostly for the end rewards like increased health, armour etc, but boy were they a slog to get through.

I feel this way but i've never played RDR2 and I only played San Andreas for a few minutes in 2012. Instead I'm comparing it to IV. At this point i like GTAO more than story mode, but there's just another different environmental emptiness, but with a player character I've made, dressed up, and gotten attached to.

It's probably empty because people are sick of all the cheaters using cheat codes.

 

They're probably also sick of being constantly attacked by Oppressors (flying bikes) and then being sent to the Bad Sport arena for 6 months for simply defending themselves against these same Oppressors.

RDR2's open world is the most detailed and immersive I have ever seen.. 

 

V's open world is still way better than SA, its not even close
