GTA V reality without relationships

Product-Reviews writes: Some things from real life don’t belong in Grand Theft Auto V – it’s great making the open world environment more lifelike, but there are certain features we would hate to see arrive in the next installment and this includes having a relationship. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Police need to be more hardcore, but I will go to the strip club to see girls because I don't want a relationship within GTA.

I agree. I didnt like having a girlfriend in GTA IV and mostly ignored any girlfriend Nico got.

If you want all that then play "The Sims 3"..

"We’ve played Skyrim for well over 500 hours and enjoyed buying a house and getting married, but this doesn’t belong in GTA V in our opinion, and we cant quite understand what some gamers are thinking when they want this level of reality within Grand Theft Auto. It’s fair to say that the type of gangster you see in this game could have a family, but most people are not going to want this experience within the next game, how could it be fun to have Skyrim-level relationships in GTA 5?" (taken from the article)

As an option, I can deal with that; however it's going to be very disappointing to be "forced" into some type of relationship unless its directly tied into the story AND it can lead to multiple endings. GTA games were more about having fun and doing silly missions/quirks, however 4 was a start in a different direction - whether positive or negative is up to the person playing.

I don't mind the relationship part as long as it's not forced. Like her callin every 5 minutes. I think it fits well within the universe since its like a living breathing world. I rather them just take small steps on each game rather than going from dating to having a wife and kids. Just add something new each game and have the players evolve as the game does. Just my 2 cents....

Relationships sure if they can do it like its done in ME, than I would welcome it.

They should be fully optional.

being a psychopathic gangster in previous GTA games is way more fun then being the pseudo- nice guy in GTA IV.

it is more fun killing hookers and getting your money back than being forced to have relationships with skanks.

games are supposed to be fun and a escape from reality.

Having a baby and playing the baby when the hero die could be fun :D

yea i hated girlfriends.... but thank god that if they add them to the game.. you dont have to have one if you dont want......

i think they should add them and you get bonuses..

but for those of us that dont want the tedious micro management of having our girlfriends call while we are out having fun...////simply make it so that its not required to get that 100% and also no trophies/achievements
