Yes, it is..
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1017d ago
I belive those are your partners in crime, none a playable character (I may be wrong though, I'm not reading any articles, just watched those character introduction videos, trying to avoid spoilers)... Anyway, I want the crime professional hole to play, maybe an ex-military or something in the lines of the Transporter, sure I don't wanna play the rich bastard, the gangsta brother nor the crazy psycopath, although it would indeed make one hell of a team.
Rumor  +   1017d ago
dogs, bikes, helicopters, trains, gangs, female cops, rednecks, tractors, atvs, graphics..... the list just goes on! i cannot wait!!
FragMnTagM  +   1017d ago

You really haven't read anything have you?

All three of them are the main characters of the game and you can switch between them at will.
Septic  +   1017d ago
I really have to take my hats off to Rockstar; they are in a league of their own. The visuals, the acting, the dialogue, the action, the characters....Rockstar just pull it off with such class and make it look effortless.
Pintheshadows  +   1017d ago
Haha. Oh Bishop, bless you. Go read the Game Informer preview.
irepbtown  +   1017d ago
I'm just amazed at where each one lives, different part of the city, completely different environment. It's awesome how they have the 'rich' homes (Michael), the 'Hood' (Franklin), and then the outskirts, hillbilly like, (Trevor).

September 17th seems like a long long way ahead. Hopefully games like the Last of Us will keep me occupied.
SonyWarrior  +   1017d ago
I knew since they showed the characters that trevor would be the best one
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1017d ago
@FragMnTagM and Pintheshadows

Yup, when I said I had not readed anything about it that's exactly what I meant.

@Back on topic...

I see I got a lot of disagrees (which is fine) but I'm really half disappointed here... It's not that I don't like the characters, in fact I still think they make one hell of a team and I see how a story would only get richier by that mix, but I just wanted a new point of view... I don't see the crazy guy adding a lot as far as playable characters goes, we had seen 'em before, just not played as one. And the other two feel a lot like Vercetti (with a family) and CJ.

They may work really well if there's some multiplayer involved but I just want a new point of view for the single player experience and I guess the emotionless professional hitman/driver/security expert would greatly complement that bank robbing gang.

We had the emotionless Claude before but not only he was mute, the story on GTA was not even close to how complex it started to get after Vice City.

Also I would love a "build your character" aproach from scratch, I enjoy making myself on games (call me narcissist if you will... I do).

It doesn't mean I won't enjoy it just because those are the characters, I'll just suck it up and escape police chases on a dirtbike or unleash my rottweiler at rival criminals, probably end up having just as much fun (but enough spoilers for me).
slapedurmomsace  +   1017d ago
@frag...dude says he didn't read it, and doesn't want any spoilers, and you call him out for not reading it and than giving him a spoiler. And yet somehow you get all the agrees..and he hasn't none.
gedapeleda  +   1016d ago
What I really liked about it was the contrast between those characters.
I liked franklin the most because of the atmosphere then trevor because it's just crazy.
humbleopinion  +   1016d ago

Are you serious? Michael is nothing like Vercetti, nor any other character I had a chance to play in a GTA game (or outside it, I think). Playing a rich 40 years in mid-life crisis with a wife and two kids? I'm all in.
Outsider-G  +   1017d ago
This game is going to be epic! :)
GdaTyler  +   1017d ago
lol why the disagrees?

Anyways, this game looks like a big step up from GTA IV. I expect to get a perfect score, no less.

PRHB HYBRiiD  +   1017d ago
Assuming they don't delay the game..i would be seriously pissed.
Hydrolex  +   1017d ago
I hope they delay it till Nov and release it with PS4 with better performance and graphics
jony_dols  +   1017d ago
They wouldn't delay the game any further when the next gen-consoles are so close to release.

GTA 5 & TLOU are a hell of a sendoff!
irepbtown  +   1017d ago
I would think part of the delay would be because they want to release it on PS4. Pure guess, hopefully they can have it on PS3 (September) and then PS4 for its Launch.
Pushagree  +   1017d ago
This generation will not end for me until I have finished this game. The characters look so complex and varied, way better than anything Saints Row could ever do.
BiggCMan  +   1017d ago
There's always this one person ^ Many people seem to not understand that the only similarities between these series' is that they are open world shooters.

Saints Row never tried to be GTA or beat GTA, it is its own game, very over the top which Rockstar clearly wanted to move away from years ago. Why can we not enjoy both?
Syntax-Error  +   1017d ago
Amen BiggCMan
There's always one in the crowd. Saints Row tried to distance themselves just as GTA tried to distance themselves. Being a free roaming sandbox game is the only similarity. That's like yesterday people were comparing WATCH DOGS to GTA. How in the hell did they come up with that crap?

For the people wanting gameplay videos....HAS RAOCKSTAR EVER LET YOU DOWN? They always deliver. I would buy a Rockstar game without seeing the damn title because their brand stands above the rest.

@BiggCman "the only similarities between [GTA and Saints Row] is that they are open world shooters."

Come on now. Thats the only similarity you caught between the first Saints Row and GTA San Andreas? The genre? Are you kidding me? I know the SR series now has evolved into something of it's own but if you think the FIRST Saints Row game didn't try to, at least somewhat, be like San Andreas then you're in staright denial. But I agree, SR never tried to actually beat GTA because they knew better.

Root  +   1017d ago
Rednecks are always funny

Guess he's the character I'll play the most with....should of just used him as the main character. Three characters was unnecessary

Anyway noticed the gang Franklin is in wears green and the enemies gang wears purple.....grove street and the ballas anyone ?

Franklin's also wearing the same outfit Luis Lopez wears in GTA IV TBOGT in a couple of shots.

The design in this game looks absolutely superb, much smoother and better looking than GTA IV ever was in all it's iterations. Makes me wonder - if GTAIV ran like crap on consoles - what the hell will this do to them?!
-GametimeUK-  +   1017d ago
I will save Trevor til last then. I'm about to watch the trailers now.

Old school GTA chant incoming!

PRHB HYBRiiD  +   1017d ago
Franklin reminds me of CJ
But if is true that u can swap characters any time i will be using Trevor all the time, im sure he will have the funniest lines.

I hope they have 3 player Co op story.

They haven't announced yet whether the game will feature coop or not, but it would be awesome if it did.

Yet again no gameplay im suspicious at this point even RDR had shown gameplay at this point.

Rockstar never shows gameplay in their trailers, but everything is in-game in their trailers.
DavidMacDougall  +   1017d ago
GTA4 didnt show any gameplay until the day before release
LarVanian  +   1017d ago
There was plenty of gameplay in those trailers. It was just shown through the cinematic camera.
indubitably  +   1017d ago
Rockstar is playing their strengths. It is going to be hard to outdo the Watch Dogs gameplay demos at this point so might as well load up on cinematic trailers.
DARK WITNESS  +   1017d ago
R* are doing what they have always done... I mean really, some of you are talking like you only just started playing R* games yesterday..

Go take a look at some of the old GTA trailers and tell me R* is worried about Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs looks great don't get me wrong, but it still has to prove itself as a new IP. Ubisoft have shown plenty of trailers and demos that looked great and turned out to be average at best. The first Watch dogs demo was awesome but after seeing the second one, well it took me a step back a little.

This GTA looks like it will be the best yet and maybe have the best balance between fun missions, crazy stuff to do and a great story. GTA 4 really only lacked in the "crazy stuff" department and even then the two expansions showed that R* knew what to add back.
HammadTheBeast  +   1017d ago
Ok. Here's the thing. Watch Dogs will do NOTHING to GTA.

GTA is a monster. It's well polished, has great gameplay, and most importantly, is loved by both fans of the series/hardcore players, and casuals.

GTA has the best balance between doing random s*** and having an engaging and fun storyline through missions.

So, while Watch Dogs does have some hype, GTA is a monster that cannot be contained.

Also, have you seen how hyped people are by just the story? Gameplay will undoubtedly be great, and this looks to be the true sequel to San Andreas, although IV was pretty fun IMO.
A2X_  +   1017d ago
They did the same with pretty much every GTA game. guess what? they're all amazing games.
famoussasjohn  +   1017d ago
It was in-engine. You can expect what you saw to be about the same for actual gameplay.
JeromeNtheHouse  +   1017d ago

What r u suspcious of? The trailers you just watched are all in-game engines. If you've played any GTA or RDR for that matter, then you already know what kind of gameplay you can expect.
TheFamous1  +   1017d ago
Dude.. it's a GTA game.. I think we have a good idea how the game is going to play.
porkChop  +   1017d ago
Actually they did show gameplay. Some of it was shown through the cinematic camera, and there's a couple seconds of driving using the hood cam.
Cherchez La Ghost  +   1016d ago
I'll tell you what, Sunshine. Get back to the rest of us when the game comes out. We'll give you feedback. Savvy?!
Arai  +   1017d ago
Bad ass!
This is going to be my first GTA title (haven't played open world games before except for Far Cry 3).
MooseWI  +   1017d ago
Pick up the others one, they're all good.
DS36  +   1017d ago
You poor deprived soul. You definealty should try to play the whole series. Vice City and San Andreas are my favorites.
BattleTorn  +   1017d ago
That's soo sad :(. I feel like I should insist you play the entire series of GTAs, Fallouts, ElderScolls, and more - but fear that they all might be too old these days. (esp. in comparison to Far Cry 3, love that game!)

I would say Red Dead Redemption is still worth a shot!!! (or Skyrim!)
MrDead  +   1017d ago
There are no bad GTA's get them all.

You will also be introduced to the king, LAAAAAAZLOW!

This GTA looks set to be gaming nirvana.

kupomogli  +   1017d ago
I'd disagree that there's no bad GTA game. Opinion only, but I never liked the series until San Andreas, then GTA4.

On the early GTA games I never got anywhere. I could only play them a couple of hours before I got bored. GTA3 and Vice City though, the broken mechanics are what killed those games.

I liked the Driver games better than the GTA games. San Andreas was the first I really liked and think it's the only past GTA better than all the Driver titles except for Parallel Lines. Scarface the World is Yours came out later and it's better than all the Driver titles and San Andreas(although the small map sucks.)

This gen it's The Saboteur/GTA4 > Saints Row the Third. Saints Row 2 has good gameplay mechanics, but a bad game. I think GTA5 will be better than all of them though.

Trevor looks by far the most interesting character. Should be fun.

Maybe GTA can finally be great again. I miss the PS2 ones. 4 was just so underwhelming and boring.

This looks like I can get behind it. Interesting characters. Funny characters. Insane story. Awesome.
Captain Qwark 9  +   1017d ago
i agree, i did not like 4 at all. even if the gameplay isnt as deep as san andreas and is more like 4, the characters all look way more interesting
Nodoze  +   1017d ago
I got the feeling of more of the same with these trailers. Rockstar makes a great game on the surface. It is shiny, it looks good, but ultimately lacks depth. I REALLY hope they have remedied this with this game.
DARK WITNESS  +   1017d ago
@ Nodoze

What exactly would you add to it to add depth ? or what do you think it is that R* is missing?
YodaCracker  +   1017d ago
Lacks depth????? Wow, I believe GTA's worlds are by far the deepest of any game's. Just look at GTA IV's Liberty City. The detail in the city is astounding. The city pretty much has its own culture with its hundreds of fictional brands, from fast food to clothing to car manufacturers and alcohol, plastered across billboards, with ads on TV, and their own in-game websites. Everything is interconnected to bring the world alive and make it feel authentic, like a living, breathing city.

It boggles my mind to imagine how deep GTA V is going to be.
Captain Qwark 9  +   1017d ago
san andreas was deep. you could do loads of stuff from customizing your character to the cars you drive, you had bikes, planes, parachutes, property to buy, gang territories, etc. i could go on and on abouot the amount of features in that game and it had just as many fast food brands and fictional products as gta 4, the major difference being there was 100x the amount of things to do. other than mission gta4 had nothing to do and as you got richer and richer it didnt matter because money was just about useless in that game. gta4 was a very shallow game, it had a good story and that was about it. R* other games were all better, every gta, bully, red dead, manhunt, etc. gta4 was just pretty at its time and the newest gta
TheFamous1  +   1017d ago
I thought 4 was good, just different. I really though Niko was a terrible character.. but that's my opinion.
Veneno  +   1017d ago
If Rockstar can make GTA5 like the original San Andreas, I'll be happy.
JamieLeeC93  +   1017d ago
I think Trevor's gonna be my favourite character.
Sniperwithacause  +   1017d ago
Niceness!! I hope this game breaks records!
first1NFANTRY  +   1017d ago
the characters are interesting. looking forward to what betrayals are ahead. it wouldn't be a GTA game without some back stabbing ya diiig!
BattleTorn  +   1017d ago
That's what I got the feeling about...

Maybe depending on which character you choose to play the most, or the one you choose in a certain mission goes on to be "made", while the others get betrayed.

Kinda like a "choose your winner" type of story arc.

PS: (last bubble)
I also noticed in the Franklin trailer several "SE RENTA" (For rent) signs!

Yeah there are For Rent signs, but there's no property buying/renting in the game. Rockstar confirmed it unfortunately.

The first thing I am going to do with this game (after the first mission that is) is see what happens when I crash a plane into the ground. I remember whenever I did that in SA the plane would just completely disappear and all there would be is a few random explosions lol.
Also, is Trevor 'not' anyone's favourite character so far?

Am I the only one who is disappointed? None of this interests me. Sure the engine an animations look nice, but I dont care for the locale nor the characters apart from Michael story and Trevor gameplay wise. I'm more hyped for watchdogs.

In answer to your question.... yes your the only 1 who is disappointed.

To each his own man. I think that looked great. That said I understand that you may be more excited for Watchdogs, its open world GTA-like but in a completely new and fresh way.

It doesn't seem impossible, but it looks hard. If you go ahead and look at the screens RockStar games released you can spot some bump mapping issues and low res textures. They got the lighting just right though. But, who cares about graphics for a game as big as Grand Theft Auto V?

Firstly, GTA 5 is tha bomb....bay!

Looks too good to be either 360 or PS3. It's very difficult to accept any of that footage was running on current gen looks that good!
