Curbing My Enthusiasm | Why I’m Staying Reserved On GTA V

Dealspwn writes: "In an episode during the last season of the PWNcast (which if you don’t listen to makes you a bad person and should be punished with a £10 fine) we reflected on the official unveiling of Grand Theft Auto V. Precious few details were given, but we got to see the game engine showing off some perfectly produced sequences around an (at the time) unknown location whilst giving us a first look at one of the protagonists. In usual Rockstar style, it was slickly produced, teased us with enough action to draw us in, and created enough hype to lay the foundation for one of gaming’s most infamous series back into the limelight.

Those of you who did listen to our thoughts will know that, while I felt it looked graphically impressive, I was purposefully stopping myself from getting excited, and with the release of today's new trailers those feelings have somewhat returned. It's an opinion that was met with some bemusement by some of our regulars the last time they were voiced. After all, how can you not get excited at the prospect of another Grand Theft Auto game?

Well, after the initial reception of Grand Theft Auto IV, I feel I have fair reason to be reserved." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Better believe it.
After that hot mess called GTA IV, Ill wait a good 8 months while hype dies and gamers can see it for what it is.
Based on the trailers I was not impressed.

Well, I think GTA4 was the weakest in the series, but it was still a good game. I would score it around the mid 8 region. Red Dead Redemption on the other hand was fantastic and gives me hope it can translate well to GTA. I do think R* are still capable of giving me a great GTA experience. I see your point, though. If you didn't like GTA4 then why would you be excited for GTA5? The same happened with me when Killzone 2 was coming out, but I was proved wrong.

I couldnt disagree more about GTA4 I loved that game. I thought Niko's character was spot on and the driving mechanics were fine. Sure it was a slightly more serious itiration than previous versions but I quite liked that.

Niko was horrible. He was dry, bland and had a terrible voice.

He's the weakest character in the series....hell Claude doesn't speak and I like him more then Niko
