NGB | Grand Theft Auto V - Next Gen Review

NGB Wrote: "If you’ve yet to play Grand Theft Auto V and own a new system, there is absolutely no excuse for not picking up this release. If you’re thinking about double-dipping, then it’s a slightly more difficult proposition, but I would recommend it. Admittedly that’s because I was looking forward to taking my time with the game rather than mainlining the story campaign in a few days like I did with the review last year. There are still parts that I’ve yet to touch on the last generation, so with everything to do all over again plus all of that? It’s one of the best value propositions on the market right now. Hopping on a scooter and riding down to Vespucci beach during the sunset never felt quite so good."

I really think reviewers pander to GTA. I'm bored with it at this stage. Aside from graphics, it hasn't really changed since San Andreas.

i dont have the energy to explain how wrong you are.

asmith23061389d ago

I've been playing games for 25 years, so please, enlighten me. It is not a 10/10 game.

ThatOneGuyThere1389d ago

well, I've got at least the same gaming experience under my belt, along with many years of professional experience. While review scores are of course, subjective(there are plenty of lower scores out there where the reviewer might have your same mindset), GTA5 deserves, in my humble opinion, a fantastic review. Compare it with its peers. It accomplishes a lot and doesn't really get any of them wrong. Most games that start getting big end up being a buggy mess, or the game is just empty. Not so with GTA5. There's tons of stuff to do, and all of it can be fun. It's hard for me to think of another game that captures that level of excellence on that scale.

10/10 ?

People are rating this game with their emotions and not being True.

There are 20+ things that could be improved in this game, therefore it CAN NOT = 10/10.

The game is very good but it isn't 10/10. 8.5/10 is more accurate to me.

8.5??? WHAT??, don't get me wrong 8.5 is an awesome score

BUT for a game of this magnitude, this huge, this focused, this brilliant, this deep, this extraordinarily detailed, this fun and can go on and on and on

GTA V is more than just a video-game, it exceeded what can be expected from videogames, it made legendary developers cry (Kojima), it's the biggest entertainment launch in history

Grand Theft Auto is the definition of why gaming is the absolute best from of digital entertainment there is

8.5 for gta is just wrong

"8.5/10 is more accurate to me."


I've already been through that phase where video games blew me out of the water. You can't really relive it. I am not implying that you are 12, but if I was 12, hell yeah I would slap 10/10 on this just like I did for Vice City at the time.

ape0071390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )


yeah that's your opinion and i respect it but if we judged the game based on work, quality, quantity and replay value, it screams 10/10

edit : im 12?? what?? I've been playing since the famicom, im 26, i played almost every console,

what you're going through right now is the definition of being JADED my freind

PurpHerbison1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

I'll meet you halfway and give it a 9? In my mind 10/10 implies perfection. Game is not perfect. I just told you that I am not implying you are 12. I specifically said it so you wouldn't get your panties in a knot. Yet... you kinda did JUST that. I am done here now. Just cause you are 26 and still get that childhood pleasure does not mean I am supposed to. I'm growing up faster than I'd like to. Absolutely ridiculous you want to argue MY reasons.

ape0071388d ago (Edited 1388d ago )

being older means no childhood like happiness??

man that's a bleak outlook, look at devs, look at alot of gamers in their 40s, look at youtubers (boogie2988), they're all happy as F***

be extremely happy is not exclusive to children and look im not always happy believe me, I've been depressed before(major episode), had ocd(only mental), anxiety and stuff, i know about sadness a lot trust me lol, maybe that's why im very happy with little stuff because when u see the dark side you realize how much blessed you are

i try to be the happiest i can be :)
