Life is complicated.
I killed people, smuggled people, sold people.
Perhaps here, things will be different.
This trailer came out 9 years ago man, and GTA IV came out 8 years ago.
Still one of the best teaser trailers ever. It showed off some impressive lighting effects and tech for a detailed open world game at the time.
And when it came out, it proved that the series could handle a mature story and pull it off surprisingly well (though at the cost of the series' original wackiness)
IV had 3 characters that got all their character growth in self contained stories. V had 3 characters that all had to share a story.
Should Rockstar continue having 3 main characters, they need to take more from IV's model.
Also, posting best song.
>I'm a soldier who hated my old life of crime and wants to make an honest life in America with my cousin
>So I'm gonna perform drug deals, and kill and steal a lot
GTA stories are always fucking retarded
The first GTA V trailer came out over 4 years ago.
We are actually due a GTA VI trailer this year if the differences in time between the release of IV and the first trailer of V are anything to go by.
2008 = GTA IV's release
2011 = First GTA V trailer.
2013 = GTA V's release
2016 = GTA VI's trailer.
The Seventh generation of Pokemon will likely start being revealed this year.
It has been 10 years since the PS3 was announced to 599 US dollary doos.
The last time we actually seriously thought HL3 would be announced was at E3 2010 when Valve promised us a "Surprise" which turned out to be Portal 2. That was 6 years ago.
It has been 5 years since the year of our lord 2011.
It has actually been 9 years since the release of Halo 3 and the height of XBL kiddies even though you still think it was a couple of years ago
Moot has been away from 4chan for nearly a year.
[spoiler[feel old yet?
>It has actually been 9 years since the release of Halo 3
Does anyone else not want GTA VI to be set in Vice City?
The 80's theme is so fucking played out, and all the new games have been set in the present day.
I think Washington DC would be the best choice, or
>tfw pointing a gun at a driver and they exit the vehicle slowly with their hands up, then run away
Why the fuck did they remove this in V?
Everyone seems like a robot in V compared to IV.
>Tempted to get back into The Lost and Damned, really.
Also maybe some Mafiya Work in GTA4.
Naw, son. I need my Disney World in HD. I want swampland in my GTA.
Could be a lot of fun doing more crooked deeds for politicians, I'm kind of hoping for it to be in Chicago or Las Vegas though.
I wish they went back to doing installments like with 3, VC and SA with the same engine but exploring new places.
What is even in Boston?
I'd want DC because you have all the crime and also all the Politicians.
You'd start out as you normally do in GTA working with petty thugs and by the end you'd be taking out dirty Politicians and even the President.
That would get all the News networks mad.
>dicking around in freemode on my OG 360 with friends
>getting into massive shootouts at the airport
>tearing the map apart looking for hidden interiors and hiding spots
>the fucking crane
GTA IV was one of the last open world games I truly was immersed in.
>start doing mission
>have to drive after this laundry van
>streets have been coated in a thick layer of butter
>somehow this cheeki breeki driving a van is able to make perfect turns and not spin out of control and do 60 flips and explode
I would like a House of Cards-esque GTA but Boston works as well. Irish mob, unique culture, great architecture, pretty vast difference from LA overall.
Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.
GTA V is fun but Online is absolute shit
That's a heavily romanticised version of the actual GTA IV online.
>Everyone camps at the airports firing rockets at each other all day.
>If you actually get a helicopter or something there's nothing to do with it except gloat about it until you get shot down.
>repeat ad nauseum
then I turned it off and never played it again.
>this was over 4 years ago
Fuck I remember just being hyped that planes were back and dogs might be companions.
Still pissed that they never did anything with animals outside of using Chop every now and then, I was really hoping they'd add a pet shop and apartment furnishings in the next gen versions of V.
I still remember the first time I crashed my car and Niko went flying through the windshield
>wearing combat armor
>wielding a heavy assault rifle
>manhandling entire armed police forces
>a pedestrian dog runs at me and bites me in the leg
>instantly fall to the ground and die
Probably would have if they didn't sink half of their budget and resources. into GTA Online.
I want a completely customisable protag again.
>Do curls and bench at the gym for a week
>Look like Mr Olympia
This issue is addressed at the end of the storyline when you
meet Darko.The so-called "armour piercing question" posed during that mission, when Niko snaps at Darko for betraying him and his friends for $1000is "How much do you charge to kill someone?" and Niko is explicitly called a hypocrite. What the player does with this realization is another factor that goes into the final choice.
Funny you mention it, a recent update activated animal AI in online mode.
When you spawned them with a trainer/menu, they just flopped around and ragdolled as if dead. Now when you spawn them they do animal things, which implies they might be added to online.
The only reason the next gen version of GTA Online doesn't have animals is because they wanted parity between them, and now they just can't go back and change the whole thing because that would require rewriting part of the code.
Save for residential areas, each of those cities appeals almost exclusively to middle-class tourists. They have the same dining and sightseeing venues, many of which are ran by the same groups of people. Even their city laws are pretty much carbon copies of one another. Go chug nyquil.
Nah m8, I'd rather see a Rockstar version of somewhere up North. Imagine what stereotypes and piss taking they could do with somewhere like Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle etc.
>trying to play EFLC on my pc
>forgot that I made some new password for social club because they had a breach a few months ago
>tfw can't play online now
Fuck Social Club man, there is literally no point to this shit other than to be an annoyance
Fuck all happens up north though.
How can you have a crime game set in somewhere like Newcastle? Is the antagonist going to be some pisshead Geordie you see in the town every Friday night?
Even London is a stretch.
>oh boy! just bought gtaiv for pc!
>hey ive got above the minimum specs, whys this running so poorly?
>i need to upgrade my pc
>9 years later
>see this thread
>i still need to upgrade my pc
Well they don't have to make it an exact copy of the city, but more of a general northern place. One of the things that annoy me about GTA IV and V is how the cities are pretty much exact replicas of the city they're based on. If Rockstar where to combine a lot of elements of different Northern cities/regions i think they could make something really good. Then again maybe I'm just a biased Scouser who wants to see Liverpool in a game for once.
You know i dislike how everyone is shitting (for good reasons, but still) on some specific details that not present in GTAV and that were present in GTA IV, but not the contrary.
I mean, glass destruction is so good in GTA V, and it's a detail too, yet you never hear anyone talking about it.
What did you do to this piece of shit /v/?
The only issue with nico to me was his seldomly OVERLY ''manly red army soviet man'' stereotypes, like him telling one of his dates ''NOU, I DONT WATCH MOVIEEZ, I KENT TAKE GROWN MEN PLEY DRESSINK AP GEIMZ SIRIUSLY"
GTA V had one of the best reveals I've seen. No embarrassing E3 demonstration, no interviews, no dragged out buildup, just a week-long countdown and a trailer. Everyone flipped their shit man, it was great.
R* really outdid themselves with GTA V in general.
Don't remind me. GTA IV was an absolute trainwreck for a good while, until they somewhat sorted their shit with two or three patches.
If anything, GTA V was a monumental improvement on that aspect.
I wish they didn't focus so much on GTA online, I'd have been happy with multiplayer like GTA IV and Red Dead honestly. It just pisses me off knowing hard work + money + fucktons of motion capture was wasted on Online when it could've been spent on GTA VI or Red Dead 3.
The trailer set to Skeletons by Stevie Wonder was maybe the most hyped I've ever seen /v/ about a trailer. The Skyrim reveal from the 2010 VGAs is the only thing I've seen come close.
But that was always dumb since it was posed as some sort of OOOH YOU'VE BECOME A MONSTER when you were a shitty person the whole game. You could argue that it was showcasing how trapped into that life Nico was, but it really just reeks of an excuse to handwave their gameplay being at odds with their story.
That's how some people are here,Rockstar did a decent job with Niko.
(To clarify,we're talking about someone who lived in a border village.My village only got electricity in the mid 80s.You might be able to understand it better if you look at it like that rather than 'tough guy red army man')
If I have one problem it's that Roman knows Serbian better than Niko.Listening to some words being mispronounced that badly really took me out of the whole story sometimes.
It would have all been avoided if they took a native speaker to work with them.
I don't care about the microtransactions, I just wish more focus was put on SP content. I'm not against multiplayer in principle, I just think it destroys the atmosphere R* created. I don't want to see poorly animated, laggy 13 year olds running around with colorful icons above their heads, it's messy and breaks immersion.
Exactly, so the whole story just falls apart because you realize his "ooh I want a better life" is just selfish bullshit meant to make him feel better. He's a garbage person the entire game and in either ending, and it feels like a waste of time.
I like IV quite a bit but the story just was a flatline for me.
GTA V hype threads were the shit, I remember making this pic right after that trailer came out.
>the mission when Roman gets kidnapped and he absolutely loses his shit during the shootout
Well, GTA V was the first Rockstar game featuring multiple "main" characters with their own background and stories. So in a sense, if it's a bit shallow and uninteresting it's not the end of the world.
>tfw getting Packie in your crew in V and he talks about his adventures in Liberty City with Niko
I wish they had more heists in single player so you could talk to him more
