I think it just might be this gens GREATEST game. Just like R* to end this generation with a bang!

It's hard to look at GTA 5 without all the hype, but I genuinely think this could improve some of the problems of GTA 4 to make the best one yet.

And I do enjoy GTA 4.

For all we know, the story and life of the city can be a dud. It sounds unlikely, but it's all possible until we play it. IF it's great like we all want it to be, then still I will say no to this question.

After GTA V, there is Watch Dogs, and Beyond: Two Souls that look to storm the industry big time. The guy says Watch Dogs doesn't count because it is being co-developed for PS4, well that's sorta bull to me.

We also don't know if Metal Gear Solid V will be released on PS3/360 or not, as this gen still has a good 2 years before it dies down.


@ biggcman

Well you could say the same about any of the other games coming out. It's at this point that looking at a dev's track record kind of gives you an idea what to expect.

I can understand saying the story could be a dud, but the life of the city? There is no dev that has mastered the art of making a city feel so alive as R* has.

Watch dogs looks great but it's being made by Ubisoft and I am not being funny, but they have put out plenty of duds. They are great at hyping games and making cool looking trailers, but when the final game is released... looking at you AC3... major letdown!

everyone keeps saying we don't know enough about GTA5 or we have not played it etc, but right now we know a hell of a lot more about it then we do Watch dogs or many of the other games coming out end of year so it really is an open book.

I guess we will just have to wait and see. with what I know so far and what I know of the other games coming out, if I was a betting man my money would be on R*. it's just my opinion but R* only let me down once with gta4 but that game was still better then a lot of other openworld games, and after RDR and the gta expansions, I think they know what they are doing.

I hope it's not the last great game on current systems. GT6 is also rumored to come out in November for the PS3. They shouldn't just drop support all of the sudden when there are over 200 million systems out there counting the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3. It takes time for consumers to move on as well. I expect after the Christmas season of 2014 we will see a significant drop in support for all of them. I think it's already happening on the Wii.

All in all, GTA V, The Last Of Us and Beyond will be a great games to play before diving into next-gen. The last half of this year is going to be phenomenal.

EditorAtGNG1999d ago

Last, no way. Greatest, hopefully (but doubtful).

TimmyShire1999d ago

I think so, but then I am a BIT of a fan of GTA. I even enjoyed GTA 4. I know, right?!

BiggCMan1999d ago

I also enjoyed GTA IV, but at the same time I was thoroughly disappointed by it. So, it was a well made game no one is disputing that. I enjoyed things like the driving physics and the gun play a whole lot.

But, like most people, I was disappointed by how grey and dull the game was in story, and graphics. The city was useless really, and mainly a means to get from A to B. I enjoy realism in certain games, GTA is not a game where it belongs, nor works.

Tanks, jetpacks, parachuting (it was in Gay Tony, never played it though), mini guns, fun activities, cheats that make great moments..This is GTA, on top of all the comedy and dark humor that 4 severely lacked.

GTA IV worked as a game, everything fit together, but it wasn't really GTA.

abzdine1999d ago

funny people already claim a game will be great without knowing anything about it other the names of the main characters :D

R_aVe_N1999d ago (Edited 1999d ago )

I wouldn't bother to say that people don't tend to listen. People always get hyped up over pretty much nothing when GTA is involved. They could say "It will use Buttons" and it is Game of the Year. There are plenty of games that could easily claim that exact same thing at the end of this year.

InfamousBIG1999d ago

It is kind of funny when you look at it like that lol.

GameCents1999d ago

Same can be said about most other anticipated games.

solidt121999d ago (Edited 1999d ago )

@abzdine I would agree with you if this was a new IP but this is a GTA game and they have never failed. Plus we have seen trailers and many gameplay mechanics that people have been lusting over. Also three playable characters! There is no doubt in my mind, this game will be great.

No, this gen's last great game will be watch dogs, which just so happens to also usher in the next gen =)

-GametimeUK-1999d ago

Probably not, to be honest. Dark Souls 2 has the potential ro be great and it may release after GTA5 sooooo...

I'm sure we'll probably see another great game on the system.
