25 million copies of Grand Theft Auto V are expected to be sold in its first year but not everyone will be rushing out to Los Santos.
Dumb topic...... No body cares
Not dumb. his logic is, but not the topic. The truth is, some people will prefer Angry Birds over GTA. People are people after all. IMO GTA5 has everything this guy says it doesn't. He's eliminating GTA5 without ever playing it, and comparing it to older GTA games is pointless. Because yes, this is a unique game. I doubt this guy will never own a copy of GTA5. He probably has one actually already.
No, it is flat out a stupid thing to post here on n4g. By the same token, where are our "why I don't like hello kitty online" or "why I'll never buy Slylanders." Who cares. This isn't a blogspot or a facebook wall. I don't care about that garbage, even if it is a dissenting opinion from the norm. Special snowflake syndrome. Get lost.
SRIV is nothing compared to this game. SR lost it's wow factor for me after 2. It like when someone tries to be too funny and just isn't as funny as when they aren't trying to be. It honestly tries too hard.
Fair article. I can see what they mean because at the end of the day every game is about personal preference. So why not write about why you aren't keen on it. After all it's a hot topic right now and he didn't bash the game as such.
Blah blah blah, like someone said i bet he's playing it right now
I'm sure GTA has a lot to offer gamers but I don't buy or play them due to the sexual content and other evils that it glorifies.
The content is there, but it's not glorified. It's all a witty take on society,if anything it makes everything look bad.
hopefully you are right about making it look bad, but I don't want anything to do with it either way. Same for my sons.
At the end of the day, if you don't like roaming around a city being criminalistic, where a sense of freedom and small talk trumps tense atmosphere then the GTA series is not the one you're looking for. It's the videogame equivalent of a 70s/early 80s cop movie. Personally that's not my thing and as it seems that they struggle to match the fun of San Andreas in each subsequent installment I'd be unlikely to invest so much time in it that I'd ever feel it was 10/10. If I want to, I can easily get my fun elsewhere, even in the same genre. GTA Online is the time I'd give GTA a go.
Yeah and I like hot dogs more than steak. Wtf.
i just played the game from 12 last night until 4 oclock today.. and i have to say it is a nice looking game but it is lackluster compared to san andreas. if SA had the graphics V had it be hands down a better game. As far as gameplay, mission fun things to do, SA beats it by miles.
Yeah im gettinh the gta4 vibe again, meaning I see I will get bored quick. Idknim a rare breed I just dont enjoy most ooen world games frm rockstar, ubisoft, etccc thy get boring quick for me. San Andreas was really good though.
oh no really? are there ambulance missions and rampages etc? or is it still those stupid friends missions?
@lykon i tried going into a ambulance and it didnt do shit except give me 50% health no mission and im assuming the same goes for the firetruck as well. i havent checked yet but i tried a taxi mission,, but there so stupid because they are not timed at all. there is no challenge too it. plus when you get hurt a lil it automatically heals to 50 percent fast. There so many easy button ways to get healed in this game.. its so easy mode that it makes the game seem pathetic.
oh well it looks like the series has permanently changed as per GTA IV ... pity . i'll pick up a used copy cheap at some point.
