When I was 12 and played GTA 4 for the first time I loved it and I wished there was more stuff to do after the main story so bad but there weren't many interesting things to do other than Strangers and freaks, Jacob's Drug war missions and Brucie and Stevie's Car thefts

When I was 18 and played GTA 5 for the first time even though it was filled with content I could not care less about side activities, I could barely bring myself to finish the main story

Was the main story in 5 so boring I lost interest in the side content? Did anyone else feel like that after completing it? Am I too old for 5? Or did I just lose my interest in video games general and haven't realized yet?

As you get older, sh*t just seem less interesting in general. That's why you hear people chasing highs. Some trough drugs and some trough adrenaline pumping.

Yes but not because I am too old, because the story is just bad in my opinion, it's childish and ridiculous and does not feel real like GTA 4.

You're a bit too young to be losing interest in video games, now if you were twice your age like I am then maybe I can get it. Maybe GTA5 isn't your type of game.

No one is too old to enjoy GTA 5.

it's because you were 12 when you played  gta4. really only explanation. many people who were 18 when gta4 came out also thought it was boring as sh*t. i liked gta4 but gta5 is way less of a slog by comparison, it has more action packed missions with checkpoints to make things less boring & frustrating.  but you weren't a child when you played it so were likely bored of video games generally

The problem is not that it doesn't feel like GTA IV, but because the story itself isn't that good being its own thing, IMO.

If we're being honest, Rockstar are trying to appeal to kids today.

 

Yeah, I personally can't stand GTA 5. I'm about to enter the mid 20s. Maybe we've kinda just grown out of the sex jokes or something.

 

Kids today like online play and over the top sh*t. Rockstar is catering to them.

I don't know if it is the same thing, but now that I'm older it's almost impossible for me to get interest in new franchises. I tend to replay the same old games (remasters/remakes) or just sequels to the same old franchises/series (sometimes not even the sequels).

 

This is one of the reasons why I bought GTA V for the PS4 recently (and I'm probably going to buy it once again for the PS5 in the future).

Online wise? Yes, but not single player wise, RDR2 was everything but for kids.

I was 23 when gta v was released. By then I thought i had lost interest in gta. Until I was 28 and played rdr2 and it felt like it did when I was 12.

Wish I could go back in time.

 

We'll see what gta vi brings us. I prefer to keep my expectations low. I ain't going to pre-order the game before I've seen gameplay and read user reviews.

Comparing it with GTA IV is almost unfair, IV has the best story by far of the series. Compared to the 3D Era games GTA V still has a good story and it was supposed to be more childish and ridiculous because people were mad about GTA IV's dark tone

 A lot of people sh*t on GTA V for having a more childish tone, but the thing is, this was the right decision by R*. They couldn't repeat the same sort of story again. 

 

The problems with GTA V's story lie more in execution than concept.

It's not childish. It's just a lighter tone.

It depends, everyone is built different. Personally i have lost interest into new games but i still play those old good nostalgic games with full interest.

Yeah I haven't been keeping up with the newest games, then again when life has other priorities it's kinda hard to keep up with gaming.
