GameZone's Lance Liebl is unimpressed with what was shown in the Grand Theft Auto V trailer and voices his concerns for the next entry in the series.
I too was unimpressed, but that's not to say it won't be a great game, it just doesn't look too different from GTA4. Also, just the tone and presentation in the trailer was underwhelming for me.
True, the trailer itself as a trailer is underwhelming but the very fact that it's going back to the way San Andreas was makes me very happy and TBH that's all I was hoping to find out about the new game.
wtf are y'all smoking, rockstar have yet again shown they are industry leaders!
I like the GTA series, but the marketing for Saints Row: The Third has so far been far more impressive than this. I mean, it was a cool trailer, but nothing out of this world.
well this is hardly real marketing, game reveals usually consist of very little(or no) gameplay video and then the logo. I was actually surprised it showed so much for a reveal trailer. This game probably doesnt come out until the end of next year. Thats when you are going to see the real marketing
oh yeah the 12 second teaser of SR3 really beats this stunning 1 minute teaser of GTA V, you doughnut
I don't understand the rationale behind referring to me as a baked good ... you cookie. ... See? Makes no sense.
i dont understand how people could be disappointed with that trailer. It showed so much. San Andreas is the best setting for a GTA game. You people are nuts.
I wasnt excited about hearing of GTA 5 at all, but watching the trailer today made me want to play it. Its not R*'s fault if people were getting WAY TOO HYPED for the ANNOUNCEMENT of the game. This was a decent trailer and showed that the game is pretty far along by now. Some people get too overhyped or have too high of expectations. Its just a videogame after all, I wont be hyped till I finally get to play it. edit- Im mostly impressed because I think it showed that R* is going for some sort of adult story with this. Similar to GTA4, RDR, and even LA NOIR and mafia 2 have had pretty good stories this gen. I feel GTA 3 was just a 3d GTA with almost a non story, Vice city was like scarface for teens, same with San Andreas, a ganster hood story for teens. All great games, but the stories were pretty much just filler and not very interesting. This gen R* has really stepped it up in the story telling department IMO. Now I would like them to combine their new found more mature story telling with the Over the top action and humor from the last gen GTA games. This might be the perfect blend of great story telling with the fun of old GTA games.
I like the work Rockstar have done thus far, and look forward to their latest title.
Gamezone presents the same old crap with a different title
I'm guessing the “V” stands for “very much like what we've already played.” The author lost me at this point. The V stands for 5, just as IV stood for 4 and III stood for 3. GTA has always used roman numbers. Anyone who was expecting the V to be some kind of ground-breaking secret was just delusional. And even worse, if past GTA games have been great, why do people suddenly think a new GTA would have to be completely diferent?? Do i want Uncharted to be a FPS in space???HELL NO, i like uncharted for what it is, that doesnt mean im dissapointed that its similar to Uncharted 2, because U2 is an amazing game.
ummm. you are not very good with sarcasm are you? He obviously knows the V stands for five and is a roman numeral any moron knows that. He was being sarcastic because the whole article was about how he didn't like that it was "been there done that" with gta, he wanted something totally new. While i completely disagree with his article you need to work on picking up sarcasm lol
i did pick up the sarcasm, the thing is, he is also refering to the fact that a lot of people were trying to see what the V and that type of font was supposed to mean(just look at how many iditioc articles about how the V is the same as an old $5 bill were released), which is what doesnt make sense to me... so the fact that he uses sarcasm to say the V did meant something other than a 5, and its the "very much like what we've already played" is why this article lost me as a reader
Well i think there is an obvious money theme in the logo so i do not think its idiodic
Yeah, but did you saw those articles? Some even said the game would be in the past because thats when those $5 bills were made...or that it meant that it was going to be in Washington because those bills have a George Washington signature.... i mean, c'mon...those articles were IDIOTIC
It had everything people want. Jets, great graphics, mini-games. Everything we loved about San Andreas. What's all this complaining?
i am hyped and want more trailers/info.
dont worry guys, GTAVI will be liberty city with better graphics, GTAVII will be vice city with better graphics, GTAVIII will be GTAIII with better graphics, then GTA9 will start back at san andreas with super duper graphics.
OH give me a break sick of articles for shock value For YEARS I've read hundreds of times people say how much they want to go back to San Adreas, its clearly something the fans want, so it happens and someone finds a reason to b*tch you can bet if it was a new city there would be an article bashing Rockstar for it, ugh.
And this is coming from somebody who writes on their twitter that they are looking forward too "MW3 it up with their friends" as opposed to playing bf3? Do not try and come across like you care about innovation if you support that POS game call of duty who pump out the same crap year in year out. GTA V is at least trying to push consoles and tech to its limits and taking its time with the game whilst giving people what they want, the game will be amazing and you judging it from 1 min of footage yet giving call of duty the benefit of the doubt? How did he get this job again?
console graphics are not going to look any better til next gen, even ND said they have maxed out the PS3.
The trailor for one was miles better than what the fans got in 2006 for that shit part IV. Another thing if its either tommy,claude, or just a new guy that main character is molded after the classic gta characters the fans like the most. And lastly, putting the game in a new place na uh.. keep the GTA universe to where the GTA universe belongs. San, Liberty, or Vice. Well at least we all can make a good guess is part 6 will be in vice city since part 5s in san andreas.
What some thick people dont understand is this is the first trailer. Do people expect the first trailer to show everything?
How can you all blast and saying the trailer is a minute long, what more do you want from it, but then you go and think it's the best game ever from the same minute trailer?
