A beautiful game marred by crashing and stuttering issues.
A Rockstar game that's a mess at launch? You don't say.
That’s the beauty of console gaming. You download the game or insert a disk and just play. Not settings to fiddle with or game crashes. Just plug and play.
Often that’s not the case, and you know it.
@kernel “Often that’s not the case, and you know it” Every game I’ve ever purchased worked as intended.
Where you there on x1 launch, where it said installing for hours yet it was downloading, biggest mess ever but you had it perfect, prob 4 yo at the time
It's obviously easier to get a game running right on consoles when they have to make sure it'll run properly on any number of different configurations/system setup/components when it comes to PC. To be fair to R*, I didn't come across any major bugs in my full playthrough on base PS4.
And here’s the beatuty of PC gaming: You can actually troubleshoot or avoid crashes by tweaking settings and still get a better performance than consoles day one, at least until the devs patch the game. All I did was disable antivirus for an hour and boom. The next day R* already patched that out.Then after the devs fix the other issues, which is not affecting everyone, console fanboys go back into hiding
@AspiringProGenji “And here’s the beatuty of PC gaming: You can actually troubleshoot or avoid crashes by tweaking settings and still get a better performance than consoles day one“ And here’s the beauty of console gaming: You don’t have to troubleshoot to play games and have exclusives such as Horizon: Zero Dawn, God of War, The Last of Us: Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima, and one storefront instead of multiple launchers to play all your games. “console fanboys go back into hiding“ Resorting in calling people fanboys now? Smh.
Just curious, but why bother with xbox1 if you have a killer PC?
Try playing a console game without installing day one patches and see how that goes.. Not every PC game is broken day one. It is unfortunate that we have to go thru this but it is not often a big deal. As I said, all I had to do was disable the antivirus and I was already playing the game just fine at much better specs than console.
The vast majority of PC games run fine at launch and competition through store fronts lowers prices quicker or at launch, that's not a con lol.
What are you all blabbing about? Its R* just give them free pass and get it over with, you know you want to.
Working perfectly fine for me. The only problem I had was my BitDefender software was blocking it. I haven’t had any stuttering or crashing (i7-6700k/16GB RAM/1080Ti). That’s with a mix of high and ultra settings at 3440x1440
I get random 4 second pauses on any setting with gtx 1080, i56600k. I know the cpu is old but it keeps hitting 100% and I think that is what is doing it. 1440/120 FPS or 900p I still get it, Vulcan or dx12. I’ve tried low settings too.
Shadows and water physics are very taxing. Try setting Those in medium or low. Also keep MSAA and TSAA off. I have a 1080 as well and it handles the graphics just fine with high-to-ultra settings, Although have a i7 7700k so I experience no stutter Also Vulkan > Ds12
It’s a PC game what did you expect
Didn't take long for an obvious console fanboy to appear.
And it also didn't take long for an obvious salty and triggered PC fanboy to appear. Go fix the game first instead of bitching about console gamers, that is if you really had "bought" the game lol.
“Didn't take long for an obvious console fanboy to appear.“ So he’s a fanboy for stating facts? Console are plug and play experience.
BAGADEESHU It seems you clearly need help.. I understand all this PC MASTER RACE and shit and still you have to wait and then the game gets messy doesn't mean you will attack Consoles ... Relax kid
"Didn't take long for an obvious console fanboy to appear." call it a taunt like how PC folks goes on saying "THANKS FOR BETA TESTING" they need to learn what beta testing is bdw Getting an old game why not shut up and play instead of calling out consoles ?
For it to be fully polished...
I thought PC players said it'd be worth the wait and that they'd get the best version.
Well most all games get there problems sorted, console or pc. But you’ll never get that 30fps fix on console. Not trying to take a run at ya, I’m just saying pc with 60+ FPS has been a thing forever.
It is. Not everyone is having the same problema. I am playing the gane just fine, with minor issues
Why are PC launches always sucky?
Too much variety of hardware and software, there is just no way to test every possible combination. Especially as things are changing during and even after development is complete. So every PC launch is followed by "How to fix crashes in XXX" articles.
Makes sense. I don't game on PC other than text based RPGs from time to time. I
Well it goes back to the og Xbox and Dreamcast when dlc was invented. Back then many were so excited, including myself playing online nba online with my friends, nfl2k on Dreamcast. But there was a few old guys preaching and we all shouted them down. Does anyone old remember what they warned? “You guys don’t know what your asking for, it’s the start of getting games released not finished and patched in later. “
I still can’t launch the game and I’ve tried all of their fixes.
😆but but PC master race 🤣 console ftw Got the game late after all the spoilers etc only to receive it buggy. PC can't touch console
Fell good about that? Grow up.
Lol. I have both but you're stupid if you actually believe that console is superior.
Rockstar releasing unfinished games? Color me surprised /s I remember in the launch of the Xbox version we didn't even have the online MP until about two months in.
Lol Polygon, nuff said.
I hate Polygon too but none of what they said here is false or overreacting, it's been reported everywhere
As someone who games on both PC and PS4 I can confirm this to be some highly likely shit on PC and only on PC.
I thought it was lovely?
At the announcement of release, SOME (and only some) PC gamers DID launch into their "best version, as it was intended, far superior, better resolution, better frame rate, thanks for play testing it for us" tirade. I want everyone to enjoy it on whatever they've got, but to those sad enough to belittle other platforms so rabidly, I actually hope you are struggling. Superiority complex is so sad when everyone has different lifestyles to fulfil but a common interest to play (and enjoy) games ...
And all that said, I hope ALL problems are resolved quickly because it's a purchase that everyone makes - to play a game end to end...
Almost every game is a mess on launch these days...
Nintendo and Playstation exclusives give me relief from that, there's only been rare exceptions for their first party titles but otherwise they launch with flawless performance.
First pc gamers have to continually wait for games and when you get them there broken and unplayable all hail the PC Master Waits.
