wasted too many resources on online multiplayer bullshit. could've threw in the gym, more random events, more stores, more robbery mechanics, more heists, actually being able to rob places, robbing houses, more stock market manipulation, just more crime related activities in general besides a close-to-home feel-good story of personal evolution and retribution with one 'zany' dude that actually fits the GTA archetype.

gta iv was the worst gta of all time so far

but still, on topic: they've fallen prey to their own success.
they games have become souless games that no matter how many content you add it always feels empty... i got misled by the media/foruns/etc that said this was goty and one of the best games ever released - then the pc version came out and i checked what the true meaning of false hype was.

>tl;dr: most AAA franchises i loved are becoming souless husks of what they were and ironically they're becoming more and more successful the worst and simpler they get

open world criminal genre got old and stale.

the core gameplay has been the same since GTA3, with incremental improvements up until GTA4 where they started taking some steps backward in regard. GTA5 was both a gameplay and somewhat a graphical backward step from 4, hoping to capitalize at least on online multiplayer but it ended up being a poorly handled Jackass simulator.

feels a bit like halo or pokemon in that now you just go in knowing exactly what to expect and it diligently delivers, but thats it
>>
>>323611260
Anons always argued that GTA 4 was the superior game given how the cars actually handled differently and the AI was less omnipotent.

Are you sure you were even here, or did you just start posting around the time of the rerelease?

Not possible. IV had the worst radio of any GTA game to date.
Online could use more of freemode fun instead of focusing on separate heist lobbies and shit, it really breaks up the flow of interaction

meh.. it had its moments but they weren't enough to keep me hooked at least to the point of me actually ending the game.

but i have to say this part of the game was actually very touching for some reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6To3CZZyD8c

also, the VA was pretty neat and i kinda liked the white rich guy and the crazy sorandumxD psychopath; also, so far gta's series are the best ones when it comes to using songs in their games. but those songs might be what keeps the game from evolving, since it's what's wasting more resources right after advertising.
so the largest part of the budget goes direct for things that have nothing to do with the actual game.

>>323607910
Le American Parody got too old like three or four games ago. Terrible cast of characters and story. Big ass playground with nothing to do. This open world games are such a fucking waste.

Just make a Nigger/Spic simulator and that would be endlessly more entertaining.
>>
Just a "meh" game.

When I finished the story, I put it down and maybe put in about another few hours over the next week before selling it.

Just kinda bland. The gameplay mechanics were easy, I felt I had to intentionally gimp myself to enjoy it. Pretty sure I played nearly the entire game with sparse usage of an MP5 but primarily a 9mm pistol.

bullshit
Everyone constantly complained about the driving feeling like it was on ice skates, and every car felt like a boat. The story was boring and not LOL WACKY enough. The gameplay was too "realistic". Let's not fucking pretend like people weren't constantly saying the game was shit purely because of the friends system. Everyone acted like it was the biggest travesty in the franchise.

You fagots are literal hipsters
>>
>>323611913
When did I say always? I said it's what people argued. Stop trying to debate like a shill.

I personally hated the way vehicles handled in 4, but 5 went too far in the other direction in making everything handle exactly the same. And the driving wasn't even the worst part of GTA V. What killed it for me were the payout nerf and need to grind to keep up in a game where new content was progressively more expensive - no doubt to sell shark cards.

Physics and ragdolls were way better in IV

Running over peds, blowing shit up, even just intentionally crashing and watching Niko tumble 130 m down the street was satisfying as fuck, but you can't do that anymore.

They casualised it for everyone to enjoy as it makes them rich as fuck.
They don't need overly complex or large missions, activities and heists when the people with the money can't even handle the basic missions.
All their technology goes to waste in the end.
>>
GTA 5 had too many ideas and too many writers. It's not focused. There are so many characters and side-stories that go nowhere all while most missions are the same uninspired shit. They spent way too much time telling a story that's not good to begin with. Gameplay was pretty much just an after thought. If these people could get away with having no gameplay in the game, they would do it. They would make Telltale like games.
Michael pisses off a gang leader and it seems like the story is going into an interesting direction, then it gets resolved. The plot point is completely dropped. Then the guy shows up only as a plot device to justify moving to the countryside.
Trevor finds out Michael is alive and you think this guy is going to wreak havok. This guy is going to show up and murder Michael. Nope, he shows up and they team up to do generic missions. It's like the entire sub-plot of Michael faking his death became irrelevant.
The car dealer was a pretty cool character. He gets dumped after three missions.
Franklin has an aunt and an ex-gf. These characters go nowhere and only show up one or two times. They don't do anything, they just wasted your time..
None of the stories really go anywhere. The three main characters have no consistency. One moment Trevor is a psychopathic drug addict who should be feared, the other moment he's an XD randumb clown you're supposed to laugh at.

The best thing GTA V did was the flying. Not the helicopters, though, just the planes. Taking off and landing is smooth as fuck and you can actually tame the hydra this time around. The shooting it great too but wasted on poorly designed ai.

I find it very fun. I remember when I was like 5 years old and my cousin's were playing GTA Vice city, I was very fascinated by the freedom you had in the game to just wonder around the city and do whatever you wanted. To me it was something very new. I loved all the soundtracks and being able to shoot shit up. I found myself using my imagination A LOT and today in gta v I can do that in a much more modern advance way compared to gta vice city. Sometimes I dress up my character as Isis and terrorize the dessert area and get into a battle with cops or sometimes I dress like the FBI and just use my imagination to create some story for myself. I love the GTA games for these things. Gta will always be one of my favorite games ever.

Every time for nearly every series nostalgia fags claim the one before was better because they had fonder memories playing it and are therefore carrying bias opinions. The only time I never heard people complain about a GTA installment was when 3 came out. People even complained about SA because they either liked Vice City's aesthetic or because of the black protag. There is no please nostalgia fags.

Never claimed that it didn't happen, retard. Read. I'm pointing out that a lot of people enjoyed GTA4 when it came out and still do. To stand up and act as if literally everyone felt one way or the other is stupid and revisionist history. GTA4 was a polarizing game.

GTA V is the best game in history. :^) its earned its place there and there is no changing that. No other gamer will ever live up to it or beat its records. Only GTA VI may be able to top that but GTA V is the sole king of vidya. Every game strives to be what GTA V was and even Kojima was devastated at how much better GTA V was than his current work on MGSV. Infact he was even quoted as saying he was amazed at how alive and open GTAV's world was. He was so impressed/depressed by it he went out of his way to make MGSV open world.

GTA V will forever remain a fond memory in everyone's hearts as game that not even games such as undermeme can top with their attempts at good narrative.

Its just that good.

GTA V-Game of all time.
