>>322292982 Too bad, Max Payne 3 was pretty great. It'd be great to see what they could do with a structured linear game when they aren't up their own ass with cinematics. GTA V and RDR were boring as hell, so idk, maybe they just aren't my kinda Dev anymore.
GTA V is the best of the GTA series and one of the best games of all time. It's definitely the biggest technical achievement in gaming.
While Vice City was a cute rendition of Miami and San Andreas had cute renditions of LA/LV/SF, GTA V practically IS Los Angeles. Obviously the size isn't even close but the overall feel is totally fucking there. It's uncanny.
The fluidity in gameplay, physics, character control, etc. is incredibly realistic and hasn't been matched by any other game. It isn't even close. That's without even mentioning the movie-level story execution. I've said this before but GTA V actually feels like you're playing a movie, it's insane and completely worth the hype (as well as the billions of dollars). GTA IV may have slightly better writing but that doesn't matter when this is the execution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bi6e1rRGgo&feature=youtu.be&t=92
The argument used to be (with GTA IV) "San Andreas has more to do" but even that doesn't hold any weight at this point. GTA V has fuckloads of high-quality content that far surpasses 99% of the competition. You might not be able to use dildos as weapons but there's Saints Row for that "EPIIIIIC SUPERHERO XDDD" garbage.
Really though, I'm tired of this "GTA V is bad" meme. Nothing has come close since its release two years ago.
>>322295954 I didn't say GTA5 was bad. I said it had poor pacing and story missions. That and the 3 protagonists shit fell flat.
VC and SA had way better stories and story missions. GTA5 fucking ends with them killing all the "villains" who got 5-10m of screentime like the very important Stretch who was the top dog of the very lengthy and well thought out gang portion of the gang, a FBI guy who you have no real reason to kill other than being used by him because all 3 protagonists commit crimes, Weston who kinda just screwed you over all game but didn't do anything huge, and the insane Triad leader/father who had that amazing grand total of 2 minutes of screentime in the game.
You are somehow expected to give a shit about Franklins hood crap but 45-60 minutes into the game you are robbing a damn jewelry store for over a million dollars. Its even worse with those shitty tow truck missions that don't go anywhere AT ALL, what insane character insight and story arcs of Tanya.
GTA5 might have the best visuals, gameplay and all that but all the things you actually do are mediocre or bad.
>>322297064 Although the shooting is relatively simple, the way your character moves like "an actual person" (has some weight, physics, etc.) IS the gameplay. I don't know how people don't understand this, its completely unique to V.
