Grand Theft Auto V Righting The Wrongs Of Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV was fun at the time, but it seemed like the series was going backwards instead of forwards. It appears Rockstar is making Grand Theft Auto V bigger and better than any previous game in the series and this is a good thing. (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I finished GTA4 twice but loves saints row 2 more, now it seems like GTA is back and brought the fun back in a big way

GTA Online could be a huge game changer

I'm hoping the GTA Online portion really gives us some things to do with all the money earned from Heists.

When the trailer said we could spend the money on tatoos, clothes, and cars--I though to myself: "we can already do that in San Andreas (ps2), and we still ad too much money lying around".

I'm hoping the online could offer some kind of persistent economy where we have an incentive to keep earning more money (after completing the main missions).

The trailer also said that you can invest in real estate, which yes is available in previous titles such as the infamous San Andreas, but it also said that stock is available to purchase. I don't expect there to be any hint of a real economy in a GTA title simply because the engine has enough to deal with on the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles, being as limited as they are. Still, it stands that Rockstar has said they have not yet shared all the ways to spend the in game money. We will have options and of course we all have our opinions, but you fail to see the whole picture.

i agree that would be awesome

also i believe we will get a kickass version on ps4 and xbox one along with pc where RS won't be so limited to what they can achieve on current systems
Donnieboi  +   869d ago

Real estate investment is not very hands-on though. Seems a little boring, no? If however, the crime statistics of a certain neighborhood effected the real-estate prices, THEN it would be more interactive, since we can effect those statistics via committing crimes (or squash the crime of others) in that particular neighborhood in which we want to buy the real estate.

But simply just investing virtual money on a virtual house that I likely won't have much use for, doesn't exactly sound like an engaging endeavor worth spending money on (or time spent, for that matter).

I loved gta iv it was fun but I did get bored of this one the fastest. Can't wait for gta v it looks awesome

It's strange because I absolutely hated GTA IV, god that this game was crappy compared to its predecessors.
PS3Freak  +   869d ago
GTA IV was actually quite good, it certainly was not "crappy" compared to it's predecessors.

My buddy and I still play online free roam to this day. Although, the city has gotten a little boring at this point.

I for one hope GTA V is improved drastically in terms of fluid movements. IV ruined the freedom of movement that San Andreas had, the gameplay alone was the biggest failure for IV. I expect better from V, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

All I want from GTA V is to go bike riding close to a beach in my underwear with a handgun on one hand. thats all rockstar.

GTA IV is dull in comparison to GTA V (videos at least)

Has anyone noticed a pattern?.. I mean the first 3D GTA, GTA 3 i found about average at best.. But after playing Vice City then going back to 3, 3 is barely playable and hardly any fun. Then they made an even bigger step with San Andreas.

Then for the first next gen game they went back to the seriousness and most of the dullness of GTA 3.. I never played the addons for it yet but, it seems they are bringing back everything that's fun about GTA, the humor of VC & SA plus the amount of vehicles & landscape to do everything in, not just boring city and no countryside.

I just hope R* listen and let us have scriptable/editable game modes and 64+ player online for the PC version, plus dedicated servers.

If R* fail i imagine everyone will just go back to the huge 200+ player servers of SA-MP.. But R* can easily do as good as that surely.

It's just that Liberty City (NY) is naturally boring.

Miami (Vice City) and California/Nevada (San Andreas) are just cooler, more open places. Not an ugly concrete jungle.

Give me back my Rhino and I'll be satisfied

I guessing GTA V go back to the old roots which is GTA San Andreas. Can't wait for this game

I loved gta 4 especially with the dlc but gta 5 its looking to be the best gta ever just from what has been shown, I can't wait to play it on my ps3 and I do hope they bring it to next gen even if its a year later I will still get it on the ps4
Veneno  +   869d ago
Damn GTA5 is such a leap over the letdown GTA4 that I'm ev3n considering getting it at launch. I know there will have been countless perfect scores no matter the quality because it's gta. But Im also thinking maybe get the inevitable complete edition a year later with all DLC.

The map is only one portion of san andreas but yet it is bigger than san andreas,gta iv and rdr,cant wait to see how they got that working,and gta iv did look grey all the time.Just hope that its coming to pc soon after consoles.

I loved the first GTA 3 . Claude was the most handsome and had a nice ass . Vice City had the best music and Tommy Vercetti was quite attractive . CJ was a bland looking ethnic ghetto thug but the game-play was the best (although I had to switch all the awful rap music stations off). GTA IV ...hmmm. well it went multi platform and wasn't a complete game with the DLC nonsense. they cut out most of the side mission stuff. The eastern european was sexy but the irritating needy cousin who kept phoning was annoying. There were some great missions, The city looked good. and the MP was fun. V looks very promising although I'm not keen on character switching . It still looks like we'll have to put up with an element of ghetto rap r+b nonsense..but that's insidious throughout culture now unless you go back pre mid 80's time period. Will we ever be rid of that horrible ugly materialistic gibs me dat gansta crap?
