Will GTA V Succeed? Or Will it Fail?

over the past couple of months, it's been "rumors this" and "leaks that" all over the place, with some very questionable information circulating around the internet. Now, ladies and gents, we can put all those rumors and speculations to rest: Rockstar has revealed quite a lot of details about the upcoming title, and I want to share them with you. You're welcome. (Dev, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

That's the point, will the game big too big for its own good in terms of consistencies but i guess we'll just have to wait and see

Rockstar has yet to make a bad GTA game and I don't see GTAV breaking that trend with the information we have seen thus far. GTAV will surely succeed.

we complain when we get generic games, we complain when developers take a risk. Gamers are a weird group.

i think it sounds awesome. well see how well they execute it. either way i wont be buying it till the ultimate edition is released.

I haven't played a Rockstar game where the story was lackluster. In fact, i haven't played a Rockstar game where the story was any short of brilliant!

I fixed the title for you...

"Will GTA V Succeed? Or Will it Succeed?"

You're welcome.

It will succeed whether is good or bad. Just look at GTAIV. The name has a lot of power and guarantees it success.
claud3  +   1027d ago
It will for gaming and sales..

For many to enjoy it, up to them

This game WILL survive!
Cam977  +   1026d ago

Of cause it will, just like every COD, Halo etc that gets pumped out, it can be total poo, fully of glitches, 2 hours long, whatever. It'll sell millions.

lol this is getting ridiculous

It's R* were talking about. This is GTA we are talking about. Failure does not compute.
modesign  +   1026d ago
the game will succeed based on its brand and its name.
Wintersun616  +   1026d ago
You forgot its' quality. Despite a lot of people disliking GTA IV, there's no denying that every single game R* has released, has been top notch.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1026d ago
They have put forth their best effort, but as you said I did not enjoy GTAIV. The story was all over the place, I feel the same about Max Payne 3. I miss the fun of the stories in vice city and san andreas. So I will deny that by saying I feel GTAIV was not top notch and was rated by hype alone
ThichQuangDuck  +   1026d ago
Is anyone willing to admit that GTA IV was a weak point in GTA. Max Payne 3 was a laughable story at their attempt to be serious.
jjb1981  +   1026d ago
11/10 from me! GTA IV is awesome and I believe GTA V will be much bigger and badder! I like the semi serious tone IV had. If I wanted to play a silly game I'd play saints row the third, which I still do

Nothing can Beat gta China town
ChampOfChamps  +   1026d ago
I agree with josephayal. This game has a really high standard to beat.
legodarthvader  +   1026d ago
people love GTAs of course it will do well. Its probably harder to make a bad GTA than to make a decent one at this point
SegaSonicFan112  +   1026d ago
GTA is a successed series and i wont be suprised if it dosent fail
candybooty  +   1026d ago
The way I see it, the GTA formula works, so by many standards, it will succeed. But in this day and age, Rockstar needs to keep raising the bar.

Lets take Halo for example. There have been several predecessors (1,2,3, reach, ODST) and Halo 4 is among the best. Why? Because it managed to improve on what was already great.

Here, Rockstar needs to push the envelope in every sense. San Andreas had so many features and GTA 4 seemed to take a bunch of those away. In my eyes, San Andreas was superior to 4 because of this reason and GTA V needs to accommodate all the features, make them work harmoniously with each other, and have a compelling story that rivals Vice City.

Many of you may not agree, and that's perfectly fine. The beauty of GTA is that people love it for many different reasons and that's why Rockstar must cater to all those different reasons.

Dumb question.

Look at previous sales of all games.

Each of those builds the anticipation of this game up a little more each time.

This game, within 2 years will sell 30 million copies.
candybooty  +   1026d ago
I'm sure Sony thought the same thing about trends from Ps1 to Ps2 and Ps3
HeavenlySnipes  +   1026d ago
how about we see more than 2 minutes of the game first champ
Geovanny  +   1026d ago
Succeed, but im worried it will lag on consoles because the size of the map.
BitbyDeath  +   1025d ago
The pop-in issue always exists on Rockstars games, even on PC.
braydox21  +   1025d ago
wrong company thats Bugthezda's flaw, rockstar performance is great. san andreas on ps2 was awsome, now on ps3/X360 we can definatly see a major advancement.
Jon_Fu_  +   1025d ago
I think the game will do well on the market, but am I the only one who's not super impressed with the size of the map? I don't want to drive 20 minutes from blip to blip.
NeoTribe  +   1025d ago
Quick anwser to a fail article would be no. It won't and has never failed.
