5 Reasons Why GTA V Looks Awful

Rockstar’s upcoming Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a lot of information released recently. You probably haven’t heard much about it; it’s not really a big deal. But whatever – why report on it objectively when you can just make snap judgements on a couple of brief preview paragraphs right? Right? Anyway, here are five reasons why GTA V looks like it might be worth swerving (before mounting the curb and running down pedestrians).

"5 reasons why I want hits"

That's all I saw in the title

Cam9771416d ago

I saw '1 reason I'm not a very good writer'.
This guy is desperate, nobody click the article because this clown gets money from it.

irepbtown1416d ago (Edited 1416d ago )

How could one say the size of GTA V is bad?

This writer was craving hits.

#The writer was definitely craving hits. Take a look at this:

Same dude, same website, same points, this is ridiculous.

"5 reasons why I want hits"

Yup, spot on. P!ssed at myself for giving him a hit now, I thought he might have some valid points but he's just complaining for the sake of complaining. He complains about the size, which in my mind is big plus, welcome back planes! He complains about the location, actually stating that setting it in Tokyo would have been a "great idea". He states that GTA is not about "stealing cars and stabbing hookers any more" and that it is now about watching someone doing yoga because R* are trying to hook in the casual crowd. And he gives out about the cell phone, which is a feature I thought really modernized the GTA franchise.

In short, this guy is a hit seeking idiot who doesn't seem to know much about GTA at all. He openly states that he never had any interest in the story of any GTA and states that he is only playing it to "steal cars and drive them straight into traffic lights". He even states that GTA III and GTA IV were set in New York when they are set in Liberty City.

So basically, this guy isn't a real fan of the series, but he sure does need some traffic on his site! Avoid.

pixelsword1416d ago

...and people wonder why other people only comment on the title and the scant, few lines before you actually read the article.

Razmossis1416d ago

He also wrote a counter article '5 reasons GTAV looks amazing'. Take the good with the bad you blindsided fanbot chumps.

This is my most anticipated game since MGS4, I'm on here every day scrounging for more GTAV news, but I still read these articles with a level head and a fair eye. You people will hear no wrong about this game, you remind me of the fucking audience on xfactor, one slightly negative remark, no matter how valid the point, and "BOOOOO" , "DIS AUTHOR WUNTS DA HITS HE KNO NUFFIN!".
It's so ignorant to think that there will be nothing wrong with this game, Rockstar are not immune to mistakes and GTAIV is the proof.

This three character system is a massive change for a GTA game, and is something people should rightly be skeptical about, I mean, it can either help the game, or hurt the game... but the 'say one bad word about it and we'll rip your head off' mentality here in the N4G comment section really prevents any kind of real debate.

SilentNegotiator1416d ago

He could have combined his "5 reasons....amazing" article with this one, but that wouldn't have garnered him as many hits.

Mounce1416d ago (Edited 1416d ago )

So, we agree to attempt to report the website and say no one likes it, the story quality is shit, and Invert-on.com should never be referenced ever again?....

I'd raise my hand..

This should be exploited. IMO. This dude is clearly just TOO COOL MAN, look at those fucking glasses, Srs business.

Awesome_Gamer1416d ago

@Irishgu95 Exactly. he is just desperate for hits, every single member on every gaming forum i'm part of, was amazed by GI's preview of GTA V, can't wait!

specialguest1416d ago (Edited 1416d ago )

I read through the article and it was obvious that this piece was written for hits. It seemed like the writer was given the task of coming up with anything negative he could possibly think of, even when it's a far stretch.

The part about scuba diving and making it seem like a bad thing was so obvious. The crazy part about this is that it works! Now the hottest article post for today on N4G.

King_many_layers1416d ago

I can see why, to an extent, that they would find the scope a little off-putting. I find that having a map that's big is often great, but there are instances like with L.A Noire where it was simply too big. It became tedious for me as a result of the over the top scale.

Hopefully with this game offering up a lot more in the way of options the size will simply enable a level of freedom that I really appreciated in Red Dead Redemption. Such striking views sometimes had me riding slow just to soak up the atmosphere.

And you were more than happy to give them

We just have to wait and see. They havent showed any gameplay or anything so we just need to see how they implement stuff this time around.

BusterFang1416d ago (Edited 1416d ago )

Very true, don't know why so many people are focused on something failing rather than wait, watch, and see where things go. Guess it's just a sign of the generation we live in and another of the million indicators of failed gaming "journalism"...

All about the money, not about the substance! :D

showtimefolks1416d ago

1. OP needs to get eye exam
2. OP doesn't understand what awful stands for
3. OP thought saints row the 3rd was the best open world game ever
4. Op when wrote this article was high and wasted
5.OP Still haven't bought a next gen console so he still thinks ps2 and xbox games look better than games out now

ShinMaster1416d ago

I enjoyed Saints Row the Third more than GTAIV. But everything else I agree with.

dennett3161416d ago

Shinmaster, but best open world game ever? Come now, it's not even the best in it's own series (Saints Row 2 FTW).

My favourite open world game is probably GTA San Andreas, just ahead of Vice City due to it's sheer scale and variety. Vice City had a better story, main character and theme (I'm very much an 80's kid), but San Andreas was more out and out fun.

HebrewHammer1416d ago

Ok, let's not all bash the guy. It's a pretty funny read, and I sense a hint of sarcasm here and there.

irepbtown1416d ago

That's what I thought for a short while. Literally reading the paragraph about GTA Vs size being bad, I thought the writer was having a laugh.

But after reading it all, I think the bloke is pretty serious. He seemed desperate for hits.

ZombieNinjaPanda1416d ago

Actually this article is solely for hits, it's written terribly and gives terrible reasons.

Size? So wait, you want a smaller game world? What the hell? A progressive storyline is suddenly a bad thing? The mini games are now a bad thing?

Someone tell this author to piss off and never play video games again. I don't want people like this ruining what was once my favorite hobby any longer.

dennett3161416d ago

Now a smaller, more focussed and alive feeling game world isn't necessarily a bad thing. But this is Rockstar, they're pretty damn good at making even a huge game world feel alive. I could see a huge game world being a negative from some developers, but not Rockstar.

So while I don't agree with his point in this case, having a massive game world is not the be all and end all.

ZombieNinjaPanda1416d ago

@Dennett

Except having a small open world is going backwards in progression. Developers should be aiming to flesh out large worlds, not small ones.

LOL all those reasons are strengths if anything

Well hot dog! It's like we read your mind! http://n4g.com/news/1118504...

Outside_ofthe_Box1417d ago

SO you made this half-****ed article for hits, figures.

Nimblest-Assassin1417d ago

You my friend are a shinning example as to why game journalism is a joke....

-_-

KwietStorm1417d ago

Keep setting that bar even lower

JoGam1417d ago

Its seems like the writer had nothing else to talk about so he gave this a title to get hits.

Eyeco1417d ago

Yeah, Lool at the first point as bizzare and odd as they've been GTA plots have always been great, and this is mainly due to the huge cast of engrossing characters in each game , all so memorable and excellently voice acted.

vickers5001416d ago (Edited 1416d ago )

Not #4. I didn't mind that in GTAIV that there were all these lame mini games (virtual dates, virtual hangouts, tv, internet browser, standup, basically all that "neat, the first time you see it" crap that gets old real quick), but they focused way too much on those lame mini games that the rest of the gameplay suffered (imo).

conjurdevil1417d ago

The hell is wrong with this article??
That guy seriously doesn't like GTA overall otherwise those would be considered strengths bigger map is a bad thing? Somebody give this guy GTA in Nuketown map (COD).
Loser trying to get hits.

Blastoise1417d ago

What's COD got to do with anything? lol

QuodEratDemonstrandm1416d ago

He was playing on the fact that Nuketown is a tiny tiny tiny map, and consequently, not a suitable setting for GTA.
