Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Decided I couldn't wait until the postman gets here at 2pm tomorrow so paid my deposit and will be picking it up in give hours

Second copy should be easy to get rid of.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Do people switch to Free Aim when playing? I know once i did that in GTA4 i played through the whole thing again because it was that much better. The shootouts suddenly become more tense and tactical and you feel like a boss taking out 20 men rather than going through the motions. Would definitely recommend people try it in V.

That is the ONLY way to play IV. I hope V doesn't even have auto-aim.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Just ordered a new headset for maximum enjoyment. Auto-aim is a good question, think it will probably not be a part of multi-player.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

I am not sure if a person my age should be as excited as I am for a video game. Cannot wait to run over my first group of pedestrians and punch old people in the face!

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

the auto aim is exactly the same as max payne 3. driving took a little while to get used to. losing the cops is a lot harder than 4.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

ya he only plays fps and sports games because he likes the competition and social aspect of playing with friends. i think he just wants to make sure this game has a sweet multiplayer aspect.

Give him the controller for 30 seconds, continue playing when he goes to the store to buy it.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

I think the 1st thing I will do in GTA is do whatever the initial bull**** is, and the find a car, and run some people over, then find a gun and shoot some cops.

I would disregard all reviews that have come out this fast. Game media makes Fox News look good.

Ah thanks. Haven't been paying attention to the run-up.

In past editions whenever I got stuck or tired of the story that is basically all I did. Get that wanted level up and see how long I could live. Remarkable and maybe a bit disturbing how that never got old.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

you guys are weird, whenever i get a gta game, i try and complete the story line - only time i don't is if i get stuck.

you end up with more cash, weapons, properties, cars etc. makes free roaming far more enjoyable

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

The only thing I don't like about free roaming right off the bat is if there is anything cool to find chances are a mission will take you there anyway.


-Drives around and randomly finds a cool area of the map.

-Gets bored and goes to do mission.

-Mission starts: "Ok, drive me to that random cool place you just found"

Then you have to play some easy, boring mission who's only point was to show off that area of the map.
