Grand Theft Abstinence

Capsule Computers editor Joe Morgan writes,

"With the launch of, arguably, one of the year’s most anticipated titles mere hours away at the point of this article’s writing, I can’t help but ponder my own personal history with the Grand Theft Auto franchise. It has helped me form a viewpoint of the franchise few will likely take, and that’s just fine." (Grand Theft Auto, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Cool read, everyones got their own opinions, ill probs be waiting for a bit of a price drop before I pick up GTA V although you cant deny how impressive the games scale is.

I'm in exactly the same boat. Playing as a drug lord/thief with ambitions too big for their own boots turns me off. It's the same reason I can't enjoy flicks like Casino and Godfather.

I played Vice City when I was a kid..got bored eventually, put about 20 hours in GTA IV before dropping it from boredom again and I'm probably not going to bother with GTA V.

Running around wreaking havoc isn't my kind of fun these days. Maybe 10 years ago.

You're not alone with your mindset.

When you play the good guy in everything, it's hard to reconcile your protagonist being a bad guy crime lord

You're out your mind player, haha.

A different perspective indeed. I would say that everyone has that franchise they just can't relate to. I enjoy mayhem, but GTA isn't quite my cup of tea, though I do enjoy it in small doses.

once its $20 on pc I'll grab it

the games are fun for the satire, but honestly, the gameplay itself is simply decent, nothing earth shattering

but the dark humor and the uniquely rockstar look at the world is what makes it worth a play through for me

but after seeing actual console gameplay, I am going to wait, all those awful jaggies and pop-in make it too distracting to play

game looks WAY last gen on console

I'd rather play in native 1920x1080 with some proper anti aliasing!

Yeah man. At this point, unless you're just a Trophy/Gamerscore hound, there isn't really any reason not to play it on PC...or wait to see if PS4/XOne get it

there's some nice subversive political commentary in the GTA games. We live in an ugly, cruel and unfair world. Gansta thug culture is obnoxious. We may as well laugh at it because is isn't going away.

This is a great article. Really sums up my feelings on GTA
