One outlet does “the unthinkable”.
Inb4 quarter to three gives this a 1/5
So he didn't like it because you're forced to play as "bad people"? Seems kinda weak.
Lol, I lol'ed when I read that.
The truth is, I normally don't really like urban crime games either. I don't like playing as blatant criminals. For this reason I enjoyed Red Dead Redemption more than the GTA games. John Marston was a criminal, but he was trying to reform himself and he had a sort of code even as an outlaw that made him work much better for me as an anti-hero character. That said, GTA5 oozes quality and if I were to review the game I wouldn't let my personal distaste for the urban crime setting affect my ultimate judgement of the game. If you do that, you aren't going to give people an accurate assessment of the game.
Better than being forced to do EVERY action by Swiping your finger across the phone.
This guy didn't play GTAIV ........ END OF STORY
He obviously wasn't paying attention to the game. Niko didn't have to kill everyone that he did. Matter of fact, I remember numerous times in the story where Roman talked to Niko about settling down and living a normal life but Niko didn't want to. Niko was just as ruthless, if not more ruthless than the characters in GTA 5.
Wait. I've been playing as the bad guy this whole time!? Nooooooo...
After all the 10/10s for GTA IV, which was frankly boring, I'd rather trust the low reviews for this game more...
So your saying that if a game comes out, and its good, very very good, people shouldn't acknowledge it as such because that's boring? He actually wrote in his review "Technologically, Grand Theft Auto V deserves the mantle as the pinnacle of this generation" followed by "If only the morally reprehensible script written by Dan Houser lived up to the achievements in game-making that Grand Theft Auto V otherwise embodies" this is a video game not sunday morning service
Yeah, but how can a boring game be called "very very good"? You're contradicting yourself
so you would use GTA IV reviews yet everyone say it the worst and bad game
@newflash how did i contradict myself, i never said anything about something being boring, I posed a question to your comment, you said everyone giving the game a 10 was boring, so i asked you if a game is good, should reviewers not acknowledge it as being good? @Misake_x_touma I have no idea what you are trying to say
I like The Escapist, besides the humour he usually gets things actually pretty right (Sometimes), but this "review" shows absolutely no signs of any humour & comes across as very petty & pretty pathetic really. He seems to be convinced that this is real life, with real life ethics & morality & seems to have lost complete common sense to understanding that this is a game - just a game, & by no means the first of its kind! He bases the whole review & continually comes back to the fact that the game is not as good as it could be because you play as bad people - despite his remarks about GTA protagonists being good people in past games....At this point I just found it confusing which actual games did he play in the past because they weren't the same GTA games I played??? To me, even to make that comment is quite strange or peculiar. Not only because it's just a game but because it's near on impossible not to know what kind of content to expect with a GTA game even if you know nothing about gaming. ...Just all seems a little petty & dare I say it, some kind of attempt to get on a high horse for the sake of debate & hits! I moan about perfect score all the time but no matter what score you give any game you have to make sure your reasoning is there & at least makes sense!
So a review site giving a game a non-perfect score is now news? Wow.
Someone has an opinion different from yours. Get over you insecure fanboys.
It not that he gave the game a low score. It's the reason why. He gave the game that score because you play as characters that do bad things. I'm curious what kind of characters the reviewer thought what kind of characters would have been in a game called "Grand Theft Auto".
Didn't know it was "unthinkable" to have an opinion. Only in the gaming industry...
Do you guys not read? The opinion isn't the problem. It's the basis for the opinion that's an issue.
They like to escape from reality.
