I sure as hell don't, i went too hard on "simulation" aspect. Killed a lot of the fun IMO.
it added fun for me. i hope its balanced.
Shitty fast travel system, barely able to swim 10ft, having to re-equip your long guns everytime you get off your horse, the long LOOOOOOOONG rides between objectives, etc, i don't get how that's fun. Some of the simulation aspects are fun/cool, but some are literally nothing more than cumbersome.
Some people like immersion, which RDR 2 had in spades
I know this is unpopular opinion, but I thought RDR2 was mostly boring. I loved the first one. I hope GTA6 is just plain old fun.
you are 100% correct, i liked the story but too much realism kills the fun part.
What you're stating as a unpopular opinion is actually a very popular opinion. Although It's not my opinion as I loved rdr2 and thought it successfully did something different than other games in aspects of immersion when it comes to; simulation, animations, npcs and world building. But I fully get that the game was way to slow for many.
I totally agree. I found RDR2 overly boring because if it.
Totally agree, I wanted to like it so much, but it just wasn't "fun" to play at all. If GTA6 is like that I'll not be a happy chappy.
100% in agreement with you. They can keep their slow motion realism/simulation and moody story for red dead. Gta is meant to be super fun and fast. It’s such an enormous earner for them I can’t image they’ll look to alter the formula too much
I just want GTAV campaign DLC.
Having a San Fierro and Las Venturas dlc would have been awesome. An almost 8 year old game getting new campaign dlc though? Doubt it
that's terrible imo we can get mp dlc all day everyday but not any sp dlc even though they continue to make money and would still make money with sp dlc. I can't find the article but I remember the company saying if we continue to support them in future products more sp dlc will be made and here we are.
GTA4 has better animations and NPC AI than GTA5.
He’s right. GTA4 had a lot of things that GTA5 didn’t have. Tons of YouTube videos showcasing how GTA4 was more advanced in a lot of ways. Hopefully 6 just has a good story, fully featured and is lots of fun
Ya but it had a Boring story, less content, bad protagonist, horrible driving
Story is subjective I thought it was better than v however. But cars no chance the handling in 4 felt way more realistic car suspension shifted the weight of the car on each turn plus it takes ok skill to master high speed evasions. V felt like an arcade driving game which required no skill imo it was a huge step back.
Prof and this this the issue. GTA is never about realism. Yes GTA4 went down a more serious toned route but GTA has generally always been outrageous over the top fun. Real life can be dull enough, I don't want games to be to by focusing to heavily on realism. GTAVs car handling was perfect for the game it is.
I disagree. Enemy AI is exploitable in combat. Very predictable
I enjoyed the wackiness of GTA3, San Andreas and Vice City so much, wish they would go back to that direction. I don’t need a super realistic city/crime simulator
You don't think that GTA5 was wacky as well? None of those games have a protagonist anywhere near as crazy as Trevor. https://youtu.be/XGBN6__37f...
GTA5 was a great game, but a DRASTICALLY different feel from the games I listed. It was far more grounded in reality just with a crazy story line. GTA3/VC/SA weren't about realistic animations or being bound by "somewhat real-world" physics. They were decidedly more cartoony with everything. I just preferred them for gameplay, but GTA5 of course had the better overall package when you talk about story and character development.
Yeah I felt after those 3, 3 and vice being my favs* that 4 went too grounded simulatory? And just a bit bland niko was great character story was cool soundtrack was pretty decent not a patch on the 3 before tho I struggle to think of a tune off top of my head not one I’m desperate to go back to but I did 100% and some 😂😂 felt the handling was too stiff just lost a lot of the fun for me. Don’t get me wrong don’t wanna be surfing cars smashing people Up with giant dildo’s (thanks saints row 😏😂) saints row was alright mainly while I waited for GTA4 but protect the pimp was cool the whole game was a poor mans GTA tho even animations were cut and paste for some parts. However GTA5 just needs to be bigger? Better and just keep doing what they do. They are obviously taking their time with it I just hope it’s not rushed and is half a good as the last one. *san Andreas was good great even but didn’t like the sim go to gym aspects stats etc learned to love them tho it makes sense type of game it is but wasn’t a fan and yeah soundtrack was brilliant I love hip hop but just preferred first 2 felt they had better settings soundtracks and smaller tighter games compared to SA went a bit just cause massive open game bit empty In places 😂 unless you like collecting any old 💩 😜 waaay too many collectibles on SA. Safe to say i cannot wait. Also the DLC for GTA4 was some of the best ever shame online was such a beast and GTA5 never got the same but sure GTA6 will make up for it hopefully by end of next year Sorry last edit just thought this is the first new GTA For 3 generations this is gonna be incredible give them a few months to get best out of Ps5 tho ey 😜🙌🏻 28514; or the other one 🤷🏻♂️🥴 😂 12-18 months I cannot wait let’s have it 🤞🏻🤞 27995;
You do realize those games were cutting edge for their time, correct? What you're likely experiencing is the fascinating phenomenon wherein the games created to work within the limits of hardware of the time are regarded as being uniquely enjoyable in a way that only games from that time can be. Sure, modern games are enjoyable in their own right, but they of course have a different flavour to them. It's no mystery why many indie studios have attempted to recreate games of the past. The 16-bit era has gotten a lot of love, so perhaps it's high time for some AA studios to try and bring back the charm of the 6th gen. Note though that Rockstar has always been about pushing the boundaries of what can be done with a city/crime simulator, and I doubt that is going to change anytime soon. Also, have you played GTA Online? Clearly even modern GTA isn't all serious business. Heck, there are parts of GTA 5 you should revisit too if wackiness is your thing.
No. Let GTA remain GTA. That’s what made it so successful in the first place.
Agreed. If the author wants to play a RDR game...that's why that series exists. There's more to what makes each respective series tick than the setting. RDR is not an Old Western GTA, and GTA is not and shouldn't be RDR in a modern city.
Hope not GTA4 while still a brilliant game Was the worst in the series due to stiff handling and too grounded, wanna go bowling, again. They need to keep them very separate Red dead is fantastic at what it does and so is GTA, which is a bit of everything 🙌🏻
Please be less simulation and more fun. Please don't have three to five seconds loot animations and a broken fast travel system. Please allow us to use cheat codes and save our game progress and while disabling the trophies in order achievements
Yeah just a bit of good old fun can dip in and out anytime or get lost in for hours via campaign online or just the many random day to day going’s on. 🙌🏻🤞 27995;
Make it balanced
I hope it is more like GTAV with some realistic elements like driving, crashes deformities (GTA4), weather, traffic, stock market... I hope we get a teaser soon enough.
no, please don't. wash you car, tkae the trash out, do the dishes, add gas no one like too much realism it's time wasting
I just want GTA6 to have a better story than 5. It doesn't need to follow Red Dead's lead, it needs to follow GTAIV's lead. Red Dead is meant to have slower pacing than GTA, so it shouldn't look to far in that direction.
Ok so you want and need Red Dead Redemption 3 before GTA 6, but you don't know that.
I hope it's paced a little better than RDR 2. The slow prologue in the mountains and that weird interlude on the island really put me off a second run. Incredible game, but man...I never want to play it again.
See, I would want the next game to be more like RDR2 because I don't really like the GTA games. There's no point in making the game for me and ignoring actual GTA fans.
Yeah, miss me with that. I think red dead 2 was over done with the “Sim” style of play. If you ask me, improve the enemy AI, make it possible for your actions to have big story changing consequence on the fly not scripted like pervious GTAs.
Totally agree. I loved the feeling of RDR2 when you were on a horse in the middle of nowhere, it felt realistic, lonely and isolated. I want GTA 6 to grow up too, if I am playing a career criminal the atmosphere should match it. If I want to play something funny and over the top then I'll play Saints Row.
I wan't RDR3 to be more like GTA V??
I am honestly hoping GTA6 is more like San Andreas, but to each their own. SA is still my favorite GTA game by far.
Please...RDR is its own style game, GTA is its own style. Please leave it at that. Let Rockstar make a modern day RDR game if that's what people want, but leave GTA alone. I think people have specific expectations for both games.
Still waiting for the flying horse that farts out rainbows to hit RDR2. Story wise RDR2 is better then GTA V online wise GTA V is better then RDR2. Knowing Rockstar they might borrow some ideas from GTA V and RDR 2and mix them together for GTA 6 I don't want GTA 6 to be more like RDR2 if that happened I might not grab it.
"I want GTA to be something it isn't and was never meant to be" Cool. Then you go write that game.
I don't WANT to pull the trigger twice to shoot the gun once, damnit!
