Will GTA V be any better than GTA IV and if it's just as bad should Rockstar be focusing their efforts on something better?
WE WANT MORE GTA!!!!!!!!!!!!
nahhhh, more RDR
More of both.
I'll take more GTA, but with RDR's improvements. Then more RDR.
RDR was ok, by the end of the game I was sick to death of riding a horse for 5 to 10 minutes at a time with absolutely nothing happening. Good missions and characters though. A new GTA with less annoying physics i.e. not taking an eternity to get up, a better main character, a new location, and the ability to purchase businesses and safehouses like Vice City would be very welcome to me.
who ever wrote this article should go back to school... "in the way GTA games where written then we would just" The WHERE should be were. GTA IV story was lacking and there wasnt as much to do as other GTA's in terms of side missions and random things, but dont forget this was the first multiplayer GTA which is why the story was lacking. At the time rockstar wanted to introduce multiplayer which was a great move. The multiplayer was solid, if you look at RDR they have learned to make better use of the discs. Cut scenes and ideas were cut out from GTA IV due to lack of space, but they will rectify that. GTA IV still 1 of the top 10 played games on XBL.
Sorry but GTA IV wasn't lacking in story as a result of multiplayer. That's not it.
Just about everything from R* is great. And I completely disagree with the article; I loved GTA IV. R* took a more serious turn this gen. From GTA IV to RDR and LA Noire, they're not the same wacky R* from the PS2 days. I personally love this new direction. If you want crazy fun, it's called Saints Row. If you want serious and intelligent games, look to R* from now on. I mean, you know they'll never go back to that style after they said all the characters they liked from the PS2 games were not coming back cause they were probably dead somewhere. The CJ and Tommy Vercetti days are behind them. The new games are attempts at making the wrong game.
I don't disagree that R* growing up is a good thing, in fact the opposite. But GTA IV trying to make the series more mature is no excuse for a poor story and it wasn't really any more mature if anything it was the most immature they have put out for this generation. A game doesn't have to be all about fun to be fun.
@ Cal GTA IV had some of the best writing in any game, movie or book I've ever seen. Was about how a horrible past constantly bleeds over into your new attempt at a better life. It was more about the characters than pure story but even then you can't say it was a poor story that wasn't mature. Just look at the last parts of the story. Spoilers by the way. Was either Roman or Kate who pay for your decisions in the game. Whether you learn to forgive the things others did to you or if you seek revenge, others pay for your choices. I mean, one of the most memorable scenes this gen is when Roman dies at his wedding and Niko snaps. Admittedly, it is a slow burn for most people who are used to regenerating health and constant explosions but that doesn't make it not fun.
I liked GTA IV but I 100%ed it before trophies. Traded the game in when they launched
GTA?? biggest joke ever! Bully definitely deserves a second game instead of the same old hijacking cars, gunning down a few cops, sleeping with whores and blowing the crap out of everything when you really can't be bothered with the game any more is just getting old. Bully ftw!
COMPLETELY agree. I had a MUCH better experience with Bully than GTA4. I feel crazy for selling it.
Bully was pretty bad ass though.
Rockstar needs to go back to how the old gta's were, where it was just pure crazy fun. Where you can have fun messing around not doing missions. Where the controls are good and it easy to pick up. Then they shrunk the map, removed planes, they removed all the fun out of gta and left a shell. Take a look at Saints Row 3 thats what i expect out of gta but its not like that anymore and they need to get back to do stuff like that.
i think they made a step back in the right direction with tbogt. also rampage missions would be nice.
yeah there working on GTA5 when they showed the can make as well as allow the publishing of really good games, they don't need scum of earth game to make money
I think they should really focus on getting us Max Payne 3 and some Agent concrete release dates. I could care less about a game that won't be released until 2-4 years after being announced. If that!
Bubble for you good sir. I love me some Max Payne.
I love Max Payne but they are ruining it. Max Payne in the jungle...umm..seriously.. Rockstars need Remedy back on board
I'd trade GTAV and Red Dead 2 for Manhunt 3 with Move support anyday. I think they're a bit scared to do another Manhunt, especially on current gen consoles where the graphics are so good. Then again, Oz is just about to get an R rating so go ahead R*, shock us.
You don't need to trade anything. Just get Manhunt 2 for the Wii and you're set.
Manhunt 2 On Wii Looks Crap. We Want Real Graphics
Lol.. a new Manhunt would be good too.. Id like to see it done in coop some how. I'm waiting for the new Warriors game to come out... And fingers [email protected]#king crossed GTA5 is coop the whole game!!
I loved The Warriors. Amazing game.
Even though Rockstar was put on the map with GTA I think it is fair to say that many gamers love their IPs as well. The RDRs were great Bully was a blast L.A. Noire was amazing Max Payne was unforgettable My point is this, they keep giving us GTAs that use the same mechanics over and over but in truth, gamers love these other games more (in most cases) than their beloved franchise.
The best part about the Max Payne series is to focus on how much Max monologues and just how severely melodramatic he is.
I just want to go back to San Andreas.
Yeah, I think I'd rather a GTA HD collection than a GTAV. The series just seems tired to me.
Spot on !!! Give as San Andreas 2 or San Andreas HD with the coop again!! Oh please please please!!
They should make a sudoku game. Or maybe dog racing.
"Just as bad", what the hell? IV was awesome, sure it wasn't as over the top as previous games but it was still one of the best games I played in 2008. Can't wait for GTAV regardless, or a new Red Dead game.
to be fair, it's been like what, almost 4 years maybe 5 (if GTA V is releasing in spring of 2013) after GTAIV which released 2008. That amount of time, Rockstar North could have a lot more content to give, maybe even better storyline. But then again, they're also working on Agent... Hmmm...
I want a uber violent manhunt 3 with no censorship & playstation move support thank you kindly!
Same but im wanting the coop-ness with that as well. I want my buddy to be able to watch me brick em'.
I don't mind a GTA5....with zombies..
The people disagreeing about making a manhunt 3 with playstation move support need their heads examined because the manhunt games are awesome & the pc version of manhunt 2 was ao watch this video on it below in the link... Manhunt 2 PC All Executions - Interactive - No Filter - Part 1 of 2: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
"and if it's just as bad" GTAIV wasn't at all bad. Why does everybody think a game is bad because the developers didn't make the game they wanted?
How about RDR for PC?
Those people diagreeing with me just can't stomach the intense violence & gore of manhunt 2 on pc what a bunch of pussies go play your dora the explorer video game then lmfao!
Thats not bad at all. Their bodys didnt even take damage. It was just blood flowing from their none wounds. YAWN didnt even make all the way through...
I get the violence but gore? I've had grazes that where more gory than Manhunt 2. Those games both just seemed like headline grabbers. They were fun tp play but lets not pretend they were a gore fest like Assclown said the graphics where nowhere near good enough.
I don't think I'd buy it even if it came out. I loved Vice City and San Andreas, but that's about it. I bought GTA IV and I couldn't make it past the first few missions without being bored by the repetitive nature of a game layout that's been used since the early 2000's. Give us something fresh, please!
