GTA 5 was released around the changing of the console generation. While several other titles were released at that time, Rockstar knew how to take advantage
GTAVI may not be as successful
There is something about the world Rockstar made that drew me in with GTA4. Even today..6 years later, I still get visions of it.
I'm glad I'm not alone. There's just something abt GTA4 in particular
The ding sound of a new objective and the way the objects in the distance had a chaser effect that was almost photo-realistic,
I feel the same way. Always thought it might be a nostalgia factor, but there was something about that world that resonates more with me than GTA V... or any of them for that matter
Gta4 shits on 5
I have to say I think GTA IV got a lot of unwarranted hate, but I don't think it shits on V. GTA IV was a great game, but V was phenomenal.
I agree. I was surprised by the hate GTAIV received, GTAIV was pretty wonderful when it released. Wonderful world, and great story/characters. GTAV was on another level, compared to 4. Truly stunning, visually, along with truly fantastic characters, and an even more remarkable world!
GTA4 DLC is better than 5..... The regular story just had you running around New York doing fetch quests for a catalog of racial stereotypes.
I would respond, but first I need to take Roman bowling.
LOL, I enjoyed taking Roman bowling!
GTA5 is one of the all time great games and half of the reasons why are the great songs and the PC killing comedy.
I believe Rockstar's Love, Passion, and Respect for video games as an art form is the reason GTAV has been so successful. They took a risk having 3 playable characters for the SP. That risk totally payed off "in my opinion" while I didn't care for Franklin, Michael & Trevor were such well written characters brought to life with such fantastic performances. Along with the side characters, who were equally as interesting & entertaining. On top of that, Rockstar crafted a remarkable living, breathing open world, with wildlife, and pedestrians who went about their daily lives. The world of GTAV is absolutely gorgeous ( still to this day ) and for Rockstar to have achieved that kind of visual fidelity on PS3 is astonishing. Their attention to detail is awe inspiring! The Multiplayer in the game, when I played it back in 2013, on PS3 ran extremely well. My friends & I had a wonderful time doing missions together & just messing around.
I guess it's fun. You know, the whole point of a game.
I think the attention to detail in GTA that makes it so successful. The devil is in the details. It just brings the wolrd alive.
R* developer's are the world's greatest in existence. Realistic equivalent of Nintendo imo.
I would take sonys 1st party games over nintendos overused cartoony kiddie jaggy mario spin offs any day.
they are aimed for kids, not for adults. so nintendo games are perfect for young kids. its like adults insulting video games after they played them for so long because they grew old.
That's becaue you're a fanboy
Cant wait for GTA6 in Vice City.
By being a good game?
It didn't make a piss poor attempt to steal my money 10/10
Because people liked it so much they bought it twice.
Great game. Brought back some of what GTAIV took away
it's gameplay, world design, attention to detail, polish, atmosphere and the strong sense personality/charm the gta series is famous for plus gaming became more popular lately and gta adapted perfectly for that
Mainly because of its reputation. To do anything you want with almost no consequences, rich story that most developers would never touch upon, online that is about as equally if not more fun than the single player, and all around reputation of the studio.
No pc sjw bullshit
People who liked the look of the game purchased it, sometimes more than once.
Constant free updates and microtransactions. I think they released the game at the right time too.
People liked it. That's probably why.
well it's GTA for God's sake even GTAIV at the time was the most successful GTA until GTAV came out, every GTA does substantially better than the previous one, shh I bought GTAIV like 5 times and swore it was the worst GTA ever lOl...
Because people can act out all their wildest fantasies, complete freedom and no repurcussions.
