best gta by far...next gen level sh*t
The game is beautiful by this gen standards. Next gen is pushing it a bit far though. I honestly do believe this is the best GTA yet. By a long, long, long margin. It has everything, and more. Characters are some of the best in gaming, and the story/background of each is intimately enticing.
by next gen level i meant as far as content goes...the game is packed with content x3 and is a visually beutiful game but tlou beat it in that catagory IMO. to see this level in this gen next gen will be much much much much much more awsome.
It's actually a better game than GTA IV from what I've played so far. Some missions are really cinematic like in the beginning when your in the highway chasing Micheal's boat.
Honestly, I just fell outa love with the franchise. I'm in no way saying this is a bad game or isn't fun. The games just don't have this hypnotic effect on me that I feel compelled to buy it ASAP anymore. This game is everywhere I get it but and to be honest cramming ads and reviews down my throat isn't helping either. I'll get to it eventually but there are other games and things I'm interested in right now. I do indeed still love the series but I lack the intense desire to play it above else.
Didn't buy it because it'll be $44.99 or lower at some point in the next two months. I no longer feel like I NEED to buy games at launch anymore.
Not if the game is good,look at last of us,it's still near launch price.Gems like these hold on to that price tag man go get it now.
that game is still selling. Not as fast selling as GTA5, though. Even Uncharted games took some time for the price drop
Yeah, not all games drop in price quickly after launch.
True. I myself also didn't get it yet but I have like 5-10 games wrapped in plastic waiting to be played. Games like Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, Dragon's Crown etc. etc. that are yet to be touched by me. I have games to last me 2-3 years so since I'm in an extremely tight spot for money OR time to play all my games I think I'm going to wait a few years before getting a PS4 even. This is the rational me thinking but come launch day I have no idea how big of an urge I will get to run out and buy one. Might not be able to resist...
It'll be a while till its price drops, esp with the holidays approaching, there may be deals that pop up here and there but they will prob be black friday/cyber monday related if they have any at all. This game is worth the 60$ price tag, I have no issue paying the full amount for a top notch game. This just isn't a time I would wait, but if it is for u go for it and save the 15 bucks.
GTA 5 is on sale for 20% off on Toy R Us. Use promo code FRIENDS20. That's about 13 off I think. If there were a game worth $60 it would be GTA V.
i don't buy this game, it's not the kind of game i want to play don't get me wrong, i love red dead redemption of rockstar, but GTA never in my list
That's how I felt....Until I actually played GTAV
too many glitch's and bugs
Came across no glitches or bugs after 6 hours of playing....huh.
If by bugs and glitches you mean texture pop-ins. Then yeah there are some glitches and bugs.
Haven't purchased it. Still holding out for a PS4 version. I know they said they have no plans to port it, but I cant see them turning down a huge truck load of money. It's killing me to wait btw.
A next gen version isn't really going to make them as much as you think. Most of the people who want to play it will plan it on current gen consoles.
I'm waiting as well, and if a PS4 version never comes then I'll grab the complete edition on PS3.
I am going the same but I do have a backlog to clear. I am still playing Xillia and Puppeteer. GTA5 can wait until a GotY edition.
This game is one of the best games I ever played.
Backlogs + awaiting the superior version.
Waiting for PC.
I'm standing by for the PC version.
I got Persona 4.
Not into acting criminally inclined! Not my turn on at all!
I've beat it. :D Loved every single moment of it! Took me around 38hours, though that included my entire play time and I did screw around. Bring it on GTA Online!
lame hipster teenager game.
pot kettle black. lol The majority of gamers like it, i.e. mainstream. The minority do not like it, i.e. hipster.
Yeah I was thinking his was a lame hipster comment but I wasn't going to bother trying to tell him.
im very happy i didn't sell my ps3 and wait for a ps4 version. its soooooooooo good
I guess I'm not onboard yet. Love the world, two of the characters are cool, the story is great and driving is better than ever in GTA, but I just don't think the gunplay is all that great. You get so many opportunities, but even so the best way to kill the opponents is just hiding behind a wall and waiting for the enemies. And why ever use a sniper except for on particular missions, when enemies are in lock-on range and shooting range with an automatic rifle as soon as they're close enough to spawn. Also, the camera is clunky in close quarters combat and the cover system could need some more work. Good game, but I'm not hooked yet. Certainly it didn't grab me like Red Dead Redemption did.
I really am trying to find something i like about this game and I can't. The story is recycled, characters are bland and generic, action is boring, humor is childish and doesn't have the dry wit we've come to know and love. Overall an unpleasant gaming experience.
You need to own the game to actually enjoy it first, I think that's your mistake. Because what you've just described is not GTA 5 at all.
Bad judgement call. How are the character's generic? The action boring? Humor childish? Anyway, you're inclined to have your opinion. Different strokes for different folks.
I saw the beginning of the game at a friend's house and wanted to buy it, but I'm getting ready to move and didn't think I should spend the money... until yesterday, when I remembered I had a $25 Amazon gift card from last Christmas and a $50 Amazon prize from N4G's comment lottery. I used all that credit to get next day delivery, which means today!!! :D
Too disappointed with IV. It was by far the most crushingly disappointing game of this generation. To think it took them 9 years to produce a game that, from the look of the trailers, is essentially, San Andreas 2. Still have a sealed copy of LA Noire at home. As you might imagine I don't have the time for GTA V then.
Dead Island was the most disappointing game this gen for me, followed by Brink. I enjoyed GTA4 myself, though I'd say San Andreas was a better game overall. Vice City was my least favorite. GTA4 would show up nowhere on my list of biggest letdowns/disappointments. It's a little simplistic to call GTA5 "San Andreas 2". New generation, new engine, redesigned city and surroundings... hell, new everything except basic game design. No one does open world games like Rockstar, at least not the part of RS that makes GTA, so if they take 9 years to make a game I won't complain about it. Sounds to me like you don't have time and maybe the desire to play this kind of game in general, and you're using an overly bad assessment of GTA4 to justify your feelings. GTA4 didn't deserve all the 10s it got, I'll give you that, but it was far from a bad game.
GTA V is technically amazing, but its story is about criminals, thieves and addicts and I don't like it. I enjoyed very much Red dead Redemption, because the main character is very charismatic and the story was very good, a man trying to correct his mistakes. Also GTA IV, Niko is a man trying to escape for his past and the war, but was forced to be a criminal in the land of the oportunities. GTA V story is very disappointing, three guys that killing for sport. This is my personal opinion.
GTA IV didn't have the GRAND I was looking for lol. It's why I think GTA V is the best one. It is what it is, a story about criminals and thieves. It shouldn't try to justify why they're doing what they're doing.
love this game, i'll be buying it again when it goes on sale on steam in the future
I've never been a GTA fan, played gta 4 for 5 minutes and never touched it again. Other gta games just never seemed to interest me enough for me to buy them. With that being said, I rented gta 5 and I can't stop playing it, everything about it improved! Unfortunately with next gen comming up I don't have the money to buy it, hopefully R* releases a ps4 edition, or its available through gaikai!
It's amazing. The story, graphics, everything just fricken great!
I didn't buy it yet because I feel the game in many ways is too classless and trashy just to be classless and trashy. Would I go to a stip club in real life? No. Why would I want that in a video game? I also like to play as characters that I can sympathise/empathise with and maybe relate to on some level, there isn't a playable character in the game that I could say that about. No regrets at all about not getting this game. I've got Beyond 2 Souls and Rocksmith 2014 to finish out this gen with. No offense to people digging the game, I just like what I like.
It's quite good, the character switching is really interesting. But, I am disappointed with the driving. Could've been a lot better.
It's got great moments, but graphically its such a mixed bag its distracting, you can feel your old cosole straining under the weight of gta 5. At times it looks great at other times it looks like a shimmery flickery low fps mess with textures that would be at home on n64. This is true on both consoles. The story so far is a little off especially on franklins side Just seems a little too stereotypical and silly... f nigga this and f nigga that They should have made Franklin a little more than just another black stereotype. His partner Lamar is borderline retarded. Franklin's story seems to have a lot of underused potential for something great. They put so much thought into the game u would think they would try to put the characters into situations that jive with who they are. Like would Franklin a wannabe gangster really drive a paparazzi around? Fun mission but it pulls u out of the flow of the story some. And this happens often. Thing is of course you can have silly fun missions but just use a little more creative writing so that it makes sense for the character. The writing for franklin sounds like what a white person wants to write for black people and not what a person of color would write. I'm enjoying the game but I would say it's not living up to the hype for me due to distracting uneven graphics that really show the age of the hardware and demonstrate the need for the game to be ported to next gen and pc, and due to the uneven writing for some of the characters. There are great aspects of it for example I love Michael's story so far but there are occasions in gta 5 where u just feel like for how smart everything else is like the parodies and mockery of our culture the stories they create for the characters aren't as smart or as well crafted as the world they inhabit.
