Should We Still Care This Much About GTA 5?

Gi - When GTA 5 releases this September it will be on the cusp of a new generation of gaming hardware. In the past, Grand Theft Auto was the very essence of open world gaming, partially due to the fact that there wasn’t anything else like it. The open world was packed full of social commentary, pop culture references and gameplay that defined what a sandbox game should really be. When Grand Theft Auto 4 came out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it still retained some of that magic formula, but opted for a more serious attitude for the main character, rather than the typical drug lord or gangster power fantasy. It was certainly refreshing but when it came time to get silly, the crazy weapons and go kart handling was sorely absent. With an increasing number of games being set in open world environments, can GTA 5 keep the series on its open world throne or has it already it already been usurped? Or is the hype surrounding the game even deserved? (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Which one is "better" depends on who you ask.

I'm sorry but that's completely wrong. Saints Row will never hit the heights of GRAND THEFT AUTO. Never.

@LOGICWINS: Or just look at sales of each franchise.

With Gta 4 selling 10.66 million on the 360 and 9.66 million million on the ps3

and saints row the 3rd selling 2.44 million on 360 and 2.06 million on the ps3

.......saints row isn't doing much thunder stealing

You would have to be crazy not to care about gta5. Even with next gen coming.

gta is cool but its getting to many delays in their games which just pisses me off. me and others start getting excited for red dead redemption series more these days.

GTAV? Rockstar? hell yeah we should care.
delboy  +   920d ago
I don't care about GTA5, I love open world games but not gta style games.
There's enough buildings and asphalt around me in real world, so gta gets boring quick.
Played every gta game, but never finished one of them.
I'm more into fantasy open world games like Skyrim, or RDR.
