How GTA Became the Dragonforce of Gaming

Hardcore Gamer: Rockstar remains one of the classic innovators of gaming, letting loose an expansive, free-form-mission mentality that would pioneer the success of the “open-world” genre. Grand Theft Auto is the crown jewel of that kingdom. It’s an international phenomenon and one of the most important game series of all time. With Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar made the biggest open world of its kind, but despite its commercial success, the developer is simply giving into its own very hazardous addiction. Grand Theft Auto V simply exacerbated the recurring issue that has been plaguing the series since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, an issue that is continuing to drain the studio’s credibility in making top-shelf open world games. (Culture, Dragon Force, Grand Theft Auto)

For real... I guess that it's better than the Crocodile Dundee of gaming?

Skyrims world is so well designed. Love how the different regions blend into each other seamlessly and the terrain is slowly evolving right in front of your eyes in walking speed.

I just wish they's fix their mash X to sprint. This is the worst freaking idea ever!

I don't understand this comparison, but this is my favorite band of all time lol. Love listening to them playing skyrim

Not the best comparison I've heard, but I get what he is saying. Personally I love driving around in gta and I always found something to do. Skyrim kept you busy, but it also had fast travel. Gta simply did not. The author would have thought twice about the pitfalls of too big of a game if he walked everywhere in skyrim.

Both GTA and Dragonforce suck.

Saint Rows 4 > GTA 5 and Dragonforce is a studio band. They are horrible live.

well i have to say i disagree with some points.

i own SR4 and it's side missions and stuff were fun for about the first 1hr but after that they felt just as repetitive as any missions in GTA.

Don't get me wrong, I do think R* have taken a turn and some of the side missions and activities do seem like a disconnect from what made GTA fun.

honestly.. what would be more fun, jumping of the mount with a shoot or jumping of the mount with a jetpack. gangwars seemed a lot more fun in san andreas with all the different gangs then they do in gta 5. infact in gta 5 i have only noticed one gang.

it all depends on what you enjoy. i have not touched saints row since gta5 came out.
