The GTA V Hype Train Destroys Other Games With Animated GIFs

Kotaku - In anticipation of Grand Theft Auto V, members of the GTA Forums amused themselves with animated GIFs in an ongoing thread, poking fun at similar games like Saints Row IV, Watch Dogs and The Last of Us. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

This game will eat everything alive. Could very well be game of the generation. Got to wait and see. Even next gen consoles will take a hit.

Yeah, that's why the PS4 is doing SO well. Trust me, people are going to see Next Gen games and just drop their jaws. No doubt GTAV will be fun, goofing around, trolling the town. Yeah we all like that. But step up to the 10 times more powerful console ( PS4 ). It's game WAY over when it comes to graphic details, features and experience. As expected of course.

Lol GOTG goes to TLOU.While GTAV looks like a beast.Its nothing new that hasn't been done before.

@Majin
You act as if The Last of Us was original in anyway.

it even overshadowed nextgen
ZBlacktt  +   646d ago
Not a chance in hell, lol. People buy into the hype. Just like they did GTA IV and man that makes my top 5 all time worst games I've ever tried to play. And I tried 4 different times and just fell asleep/got bored. You couldn't even trade that game in at GameStop. Why? Because they had to many on hand, very true story. So here we are once again on the GTA hype train.

Which I will add. I AM getting GTAV of course. I've been playing it since the very first one. This one looks MUCH better then the last one!

But when I want to play games that are truly mind blowing in graphics and features. I'll be over here on the 10 times more powerful PS4 thank you! That is why I bought a damn nice TV for in the first place!

it's your opinion and i respect it, GTA IV is one of the greatest games in this gen, no top games list is complete without it, im still playing even today

i hope for a GTA V nextgen btw with 1080p, 60FPS and tessellation

hopefully

Agreed about GTA IV being overhyped. Great atmosphere, great music, so-so story and gameplay that sucks. Driving, fighting, shooting in that game was just terrible. I guess it was great for someone who just wanted to be a bad-ass.

Besides, animated gifs are a Kaz thing.

I agree, GTA IV was a step back from the greatness San Andreas was. That's why I'm really glad they brought everything back in GTA V. I didn't like GTA IV for it's simplicity, nothing to do other than cruise around and do A to B missions that got boring quick. Also the online in GTA IV's free roam felt barebones, the only thing you could do was drive around and kill other players or throw explosives at them and that was funny for a while. It felt like it was just there, you know...nothing special. GTA V's online will really change that, so many things to do. And the money you get will actually matter, because GTA IV lacked many things that you can buy. It was more of 8/10 if I'm giving it an honest score. And the gameplay, sluggish cover mechanic... Can't wait for GTA V to bring me back to the older GTAs from last gen, those were masterpieces.

Same to you as well on your opinion. But I use the GTAIV game disc as a coaster for my drinks now.

kidding, lol. But I do think it is the #1 most traded in game to game stop. In 2011, RDR was... another Rockstar game. Which I loved to death and will never trade/sell.

Saints Row IV is in no way, shape or form similar to GTA V. Trust me on this.
ZBlacktt  +   646d ago
So this, I've been playing this the last couple days. They are not even close at all. Either is Watch Dogs. Maybe any game in the city is somehow GTA??? lol..ok.
Hazmat13  +   646d ago
GTAV is its own thing, but if need be. compare watch dogs to GTA5? watch dogs wins hands down.
Snookies12  +   646d ago
Uhhh, neither of those games have released yet. You cannot make that claim. You can say you like the look of Watch Dogs better from videos, but without playing both of them you can't compare.
PersonMan  +   645d ago
I still play GTA IV every day. It's really fun and it entertains me.

I don't like all the goofy crap in Saints Row. I'm older now and that sort of stuff doesn't amuse me.
