The Grand Theft Auto 5 hype train has started rolling, but one writer can't get too excited about it. Why? Because of those stupid cars.
I agree as well. I hate driving for extended periods of time in these games.
I hated driving around those country roads in SA. Talk about boredom.
The problem isn't cars in general its the cars in game. Rockstar needs to grab some people from Midnight club to teach them how to make cars fun. There's no excuse for stealing the equivalent of a 911 and being unable to drive down a highway at 80 without dying.
Grand. Theft. AUTO.
If you dont like the set up of grand theft auto then dont play it. Thats is what the game is and always has been about. The author of this is digging for flame bait and its pointless. If you dont like a certain game dont play it.its that simple. Theyre not going to change the whole structure of their arguably best game ever because a couple people complain about the cars. I opened this thinking it would be about the lack of licensing but its flame bait.
If flying around Arkham City makes you *feel* like Batman because of how fun and exciting it is, wouldn't driving a car around LA trying not to blow it up make you *feel* like a guy driving a car around LA trying not to blow it up? Sure, being Batman is more fun than being some guy, but it's not like you're gonna play a superhero in GTAV. What're you supposed to do if not drive cars?
Leave GTA to the people who will enjoy it, is what. :P
Only if driving a car around L.A. could be fun. Have you ever driven a car in L.A.? Further, would you really want to drive a car in L.A. with controls from a Rockstar game? Yeah, that's what I thought.
Have you ever driven a car in Los Santos with a 4 or 5 star wanted level? Have you ever done that in a car driven by a DualShock 3? Yeah, that's what I thought.
you know, Now that we are talking about the cars in GTA, that brings up an interesting point. Grand Theft Auto - does the name even fit what the games are about anymore? I mean sure you can still steal cars but looking at it from a bigger picture, I don't even think the name fits the kind of games Rockstar makes in the series anymore. random...
GTA is now more about, "Oh, I came here with a disadvantage and a terrible past. I lose all that's dear to me and then I become awesome and someone who aims to be on America's Most Wanted" than fun and stealing cars. Saints Row took the spirit of what GTA used to be and is howing us what could've been. I don't want crappy driving controls and boring minigames like billards, eating, watching lame cabaret shows, and bowling. I can do all that in real life. I want to do what I used to be able to do in GTA. That is, jack a taxi and go on some intense rides similar to Crazy Taxi. I wanna grab a tank and go on a rampage. Hell, I wanna grab that dildo from the jail cell and go beat up old grannies with it. But, no. Rockstar says, "that's not good enough". Thank God for Volition.
I don't understand what you're complaining about. You can do all of that in GTA. Except run around with the dildo. But why would you want to do that anyway? I mean, unless you're twelve or something, which seems to be the demographic that Saints Row appeals to. GTA has always been a mature game for mature people. Its witty and emotional and critical and substantial, which is more than can be said about Saints Row.
You could always hop on a motorcycle. Much more fun and exciting.
I drove motorcycle in gta4 99% of the time
You don't drive motorcycles
(@illegalyouth I hit the wrong thing, apparently) Sure I would. In GTA I don't need to worry about silly traffic jams or pedestrians, and if my car explodes it's not a big deal because, hey look, there's another one. It seems like apples and oranges to me to compare GTA with Batman and Infamous just because they're all open world games. I mean, why doesn't Mario run as fast as Sonic? Why can't Sonic get a cape and fly?
Imo it's a stupid argument, Infamous was not fun to navigate. Cars/planes/helicopters etc are the most fun along with Prototype(to bad the rest of the game sucks)and Spiderman. And RDR, horse is all well and good but it gets boring navigating quite quickly imo.
never had a problem with it, driving in GTA games is fun if you ask me.
I liked driving in San Andreas because of more open roads and countryside, not so much in GTA IV because everything is crowded and doesn't have that atmosphere.
So anyway. Ummmm....
The taxi can skip ride was the greatest feature in GTAIV.
so true, I ALWAYS used it.
The only problem with any TES game is You have to actually WALK places or get on a HORSE and RIDE, how crazy is that? unless you fast travel.. Like in GTA IV you have to actually get into a taxi and... oh wait What was this article about again?
Problem : cars? In GTA:IV i was very impressed with their physics, damage and suspension and handling. GTA IV is one of the only games that have free-roam and excellently made vehicles that look, handle and feel great. 40 square km + Cars, bikes, planes = success!
GTA without cars, what is a grand theft auto without cars? Stealing someones shoes? Troll article.
Ah. Someone else who didn't actually read it.
Let's compare Batman and Grand Theft Auto - Batman = Batman Grand Theft Auto = Grand Theft Auto I think that was science at its finest. Thanks for reading.
GTA 4 the best part was the driving they done really good with the physics and damage IMO
More useless complaining that really doesn't even make sense. Your sick of driving cars in a game called GRAND THEFT AUTO, that is supposed to be BASED IN REALITY. Really, did this moron think that GTA would have the primary mode of transportation to be something other than a CAR. How about replacing all the cars with hovercrafts and moon shoes. YAy people who dont like something jsut need to shut up about it and stop wanting it to change for them. Their complaints are always crappy and off based.
That is such a good point that it appears in the article you're complaining about. You did read it, right?
This coming from somebody complaining LOL.
Dont forget about Protype same idea traveling. Also after all the hype with gta v i started playing Episodes from liberty city last night again & forgot just how much i hated driving in those dificult as hell to drive cars. I was thinking the same thing, dammit why cant i go all Ezio & just climb lol
My favourite part in GTA is stealing different cars and driving the nuts out of them.
They should have made the new GTA in the future or something along those lines. It would be cool jacking hover cars and running over robot pedestrians.
