Why I'm Not Sold On GTA V

"Vice City gave me that feeling, and I’d love it if Rockstar could show me something in GTA V that brings me back to a position where not playing it is out of the question. But, for now, my excitement’s other places, and Rockstar would need to do something special to change that." (Grand Theft Auto V, Industry, PS3, Xbox 360)

I have to agree with you and the article as well, I just feel that Watch_Dogs seems like a new experience and new vibe, it is pretty much like GTA but you can 'hack' which I like, and I feel that another GTA will be like a usual GTA just a different storyline, graphics, vehicles, etc. I will probably pick up Watch_Dogs first and then buy GTA V, but if some gameplay at E3 from GTA might change my mind

You got our boy Flynn. Hope it works out he's a good kid. Think we will keep Wilson though...

Good luck with your rival Denver! I'm sure Manning won't do much...lol

" like you know exactly how 90% of the game will play." That's most games today tho dude, I do disagree with you tho, I have faith that rockstar will change it up enough, did you see the underwater pic?

GTA 4 sucked compared to VC and SA. BoGT was much better but I'm not sold yet, either. Need to see some gameplay to get me hyped... but I already know I'll get it anyway ...even a bad GTA is better than most games :S

As bad as I want gtaV I might have to pass on it due to the fact gtaV release September 17 ... With PS4 launching soon after it makes no sense to get gta V .
imtheman2013  +   885d ago
Buy GTAV on your current console, then buy the new console? That seems pretty sensible to me. And who knows? It could also get a next-gen release along with the current systems.

im sold 200%

Dogs sold me, been wishing for dogs since San Andreas.
LOGICWINS  +   885d ago
I wonder if you can buy them and use them in combat. In any case, I'm not sold for the simple fact that I'm waiting for a PS4 version.

GTA4 got boring after a few hours. Driving across city to each of the missions was annoying. When the game feels like a chore that's when I stop playing. Hope they fix this problem in GTA5.
TongkatAli  +   885d ago
The way you played it made it "repetitive". If all you did was drive and do missions that was your problem. I would get drunk, bone hoes and play mini games in between missions.
roshi1987  +   885d ago
Yea dude, that shit you listed sucked balls. Like tripping in Brawl.
ape007  +   885d ago
GTA 4 might be a bit heavier than its predecessors but it's the most polished, focused, refined and breathtaking game in the series history, the level of quality is stunning, i still play it to this day, it's also ranked at number 10 most played game on Xbox live recently
dafegamer  +   885d ago
i agree with you tbqh. It lacked the variety, other installments had
T2  +   885d ago
@tongkat ...Well I do somewhat agree but the taxis were a pretty good fix for this ... See gta is fairly realistic so they want you to enjoy the little things like jumping the curb and running red lights ... And multiplayer was actually fun for a cpl of months rolling with your bros...

Well I guess that's why there is more than one game on the shelf so you many choices. There has only been 1 game this entire generation so I'm looking forward to the next one. Some people like Vice City while others like San Andreas. This may do to how they could relate to the character or not. For me it was San Andreas.

Now it seems like they are putting all these games into one and making one of the biggest games ever and I can't wait. And I don't feel this series is getting stale. 5 games between 2 generations(including V) is not too much. They are still the top dog of open world games and I have a felling that V will be that way as well. Hell we've had 5 Assassin's Creeds this gen alone. Who's getting stale? Oh well, I guess you need a article about everything these days.

So does Madden, COD, and Justin Bieber tickets...your point?
TongkatAli  +   885d ago
All of the things you named share the same level of quality TO YOU. They're some that actually deserve its huge sales and others that clearly don't.

Its all subjective to the person. Someone will say "Twlight sucks, omg its bad" then someone who is a fan will be like " hahahah, but but sales are awesome". Its a never ending cycle.

If someone loves something that you think is crappy no comment is the best reply.
ape007  +   885d ago
@ LOGICWINS

Grand Theft Auto along with mario and zelda series are the only games that get universal acclaim, high scores, respect, love and Mega sales, these games are the reason we play games

and besides what's with CoD and JB, people love CoD cause of its addicting gameplay and girls(some guys too) like Justin Bieber, again high sales doesn't always equal quality

i have an advice for you, don't be a one dimensional, narrowed, run off the mill internet darling

"All of the things you named share the same level of quality TO YOU."

I never mentioned my opinion of the quality of the things I pointed out. Where did that come from?

"Its all subjective to the person"

You say this, yet...

"They're some that actually deserve its huge sales and others that clearly don't"

Conflicting statements.

"If someone loves something that you think is crappy no comment is the best reply."

WOW..someones making big assumptions today. When did I say anything was crappy?
LOGICWINS  +   885d ago
"again high sales doesn't always equal quality"

Then what was the purpose of mentioning GTAs "Mega sales" in the first part of your comment if its such a poor indicator of quality?

Btw, when you mentioned "high scores", you lost all credibility with your comment...IMO.
PinkFunk  +   885d ago
I'm going to stick my neck out here, and i'm going to avoid being even remotely unbiased here because fuck it, i'm not running for election...

COD, Justin Bieber, and Madden, suck.
deadlydragon121  +   885d ago
Madden are COD are good games, Justin Bieber gets an equal amount of hate if not more than the tickets he sells. Check out his youtube videos always more dislikes than likes.
MYSTERIO360  +   885d ago
Im considering renting GTA 5 after playing every GTA game to date (from the 3rd installment). I know there will be improvements but im not sure they will be enough to warrant my money especially with next gen around the corner. I'd much rather consider getting watchdogs instead as it seems like something original and fresh along with my PS4 purchase.
MeatAbstract  +   885d ago
Some friends and I couldn't be more excited for GTA V even though we play GTA IV on the PC. It's the kind of thing where one of us invites another and another invite someone else etc and before you know, we're all online having a laugh and having fun and shouting down the mic.

GTA IV is also the game I'll jump onto when I fancy a quick killing spree, which is what I've always done with GTA's. Some can argue that Saints Row offers more fun and Just Cause 2 more freedom and while they are great games, GTA just hits all the sweet, satisfying spots for me.
-Gespenst-  +   885d ago
I'm not arsed getting it until I get a Ps4, and god knows when that'll be since I'm penniless.

Definitely not as hyped for this as I was for San Andreas and Vice City back in the day. Meh, GTA games are pretty juvenile anyway. I can wait.
Triggytrolls  +   885d ago
Single player ended up being a bit boring, but free roam/multiplayer was a blast. Some of my funniest gaming moments happened in GTA free roam.

The glitch swing was class too.
teedogg80  +   885d ago
I hope they have something similar to the swing glitch in this one.

Me too. Struggled to make it to like 28%, then sold it.

Giant bag of "Meh..."
dafegamer  +   885d ago
Honestly I know that feel bro. With a Metascore of 98, I honestly expected more from the game.
With that Score, my expectations reached impossible heights
i8urCAKE  +   885d ago
All of you will buy GTA V at launch . don't lie.
xabmol  +   885d ago
Confused...
You want me to lie to not lie?

I'm getting it Day one
unchartedxplorer  +   884d ago
I've already pre-ordered it. Huge and incredibly detailed game world, three playable characters along with the stunning graphics. I don't think there is a game I'm looking forward to more this year
