Why I’m Not Interested in Grand Theft Auto

The Late Night Gamer: Now, don’t get me wrong here, I enjoy playing Grand Theft Auto. I’ve played quite a few titles and have fun each time. It is an inherently enjoyable game that gives the player an ability to roam an enormous land of various environments with a sense of such complete freedom that dozens of games just wish they could compare to. Millions have been put into each game, and I can easily see and understand that it has paid off. Rockstar has produced a fantastic franchise that these days, is one of the big dogs of gaming, and I wish it nothing but good will in future. But, as a consumer, there are several reasons why I’m really not that tickled by the game.

Stopped playing, never finish it. It is just not my thing. It looks so bloated, and the story doesn't seem on par with Red Dead Redemption.

Derekvinyard13880d ago

Your loss dude tons of fun. Btw what does bloated mean as a complaint towards a game?

TheBurger29879d ago

No its not a loss. The game was so hyped but SP was a let down and MP is shit because RS got greedy.

KonsoruMasuta879d ago (Edited 879d ago )

That's your problem there! Don't play GTA just for the story. The majority of people who buy GTA buy it to dick around in an open world.

When I got the game, I skipped the story for the first week, and went straight to the cheat codes. Fast running + Super Jump + Explosive Melee attacks = Tons of fun.

SolidGear3879d ago

I agree. GTA has always been boring to me. Now Red Dead and L.A. Noire I loved.

diehardmetallicafan879d ago

i finished it and played a bit of mp but it disappointed me big time. i rarely spend full price on a game and it was a complete waste of $100 bucks in my opinion. nothing new

So hyped for GTA5. Loved it for like a day, beat it, played online for like 2-3 days then realized this game is the most overrated game in the history of games.

Can't believe I got suckered into buying into the hype and then tricking myself into thinking I liked it more than I did for the first 4 days.

I've learned my lesson.

That is what we get for $320 million ? no thanks

these kiddy games with the easy violence, copy and paste grafix and lack of inventivity that anybody could have imagined . fun games but deff overrated .

ape007879d ago

LoL, do u know anything about videogames??

crusf879d ago

*Before release*"This game looks so good I am so excited for it!" *After Release* " Damn this game got TOO popular! Gonna act cool and unique by NOT liking it! Chicks dig that.:D"

Audiggity878d ago

Pretty much. I feel like all of the people still complaining about GTAV either:

1. Think they are AWESOMELY KEWL for not liking a game that cost a quarter of a billion dollars to make

Or

2. Don't have the mental capacity to enjoy a truly non-linear game and actually require the structure put in place by most other largely linear games

Or

3. Based their entire opinion on the launch issues surrounding GTA:O and the subsequent microtransactions... which have nothing to do with how well GTA:O works now.

TheTimeDoctor879d ago

sadly I couldn't get into it. will try again when I have some more time.

GiantFriendlyCrab879d ago (Edited 879d ago )

games that give you to much freedom to do anything you want is not fun at all, maybe the first two hours or so, then you see there is no meaning to play anymore.

LogicStomper879d ago

So... what you're saying is that freedom is a bad thing?

Audiggity878d ago

That's nonsense.

Skyrim? Fallout? GTA? Red Dead?

These are all great games, very non-linear, and still maintained the very difficult task of having overarching goals on top of that freedom.

If one doesn't have the mental flexibility to enjoy open world games that is one thing... but to say they aren't fun in general is just silly.
