Re: GTA V - releases September 17

My driving in all GTA games has always been amazing, and that continues. Tried restarting the game, and my leet driving skills have me unable to pass the first escape the cops mission.

Everything I've read makes it sound like it's lived up to the hype. Looking forward to finding out myself tomorrow. Been holding out until the work week is over so I actually sleep at night.

smart man with some will power here. i dont think i could've done that.

i dont play many games so i wont be the most reliable source, but the story mode (still have online mode coming!) has more than surpassed my high expectations for it. theres just so much to do and see. i've had it for 3 whole days and still dont have the entire map uncovered.

Pretty sure you don't hit anything and it should just be on the ground at the back of the armoured car/van

It's been a long time since I played IV (and I have no intention of doing so again), so I can't remember specifics about the handling there, but I can't believe this is correct.

I never liked the driving mechanics in IV and I'm loving them in V. There is no way they are the same.

It's awesome. Plain awesome. It's everything GTA should be and everything that IV was not.

Take all the graphically improvements of IV, combined with the fun of San Andreas, and add multiple characters with improved story arcs. It's gold.

Please let's not start the IV debate again

One of many "IV sucks - no it doesn't"-debates start already a few posts in on page one of this thread for those interested.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Not a fan of the Mario style driving physics, but I guess Ill get used to it. Did prefer the realism of gta 4 driving and don't really know why they would change that, I guess it makes it a lot easier and therefore more enjoyable for noobs and the average Joe. Gonna take a lot to get used to I did spend thousands of hours on gta 4 racing lol.

Lol noobs in GTA...this isn't Counter Strike.

They changed it because 90% of their fanbase hated it.

Realism as in skidding and dragging every time you moved the car an inch to the left or right? The physics were ****ed up, not realistic, but ****ed up. GTA V (in most ways) has taken us back to how GTA games should be, this definitely includes driving.

I know it's a gta game but this game's propensity to force you into amoral situations tilts me

Spoiler:
If it sucks so much maybe you should sell or throw away your game? I really don't understand the moral questions people are asking with this game. This is GTA, the first game series to allow you to have sex with a prostitute and then run her over and get your money back, the clue is in the title somewhat.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

That actually does sound quite ****ed up, I hadn't seen that. Maybe they should draw the line at torture? Having said that, if you think about it's not necessarily the morality that you might be objecting to, it's the vulgarity of it all. Every GTA game has featured the murder of innocents, destruction of lives and livelihoods and sometimes large-scale massacres, it's only now that people who usually enjoy the games object to what they've seen in it-which leads me to believe it's more about how vulgar and involved something is, rather than the moral value of it.

oh so because i disagree i can't possibly understand it?

it's not a valid point at all - the only valid point is that if you buy gta you should be expecting to those things, unless you're an idiot.

Lol, buy GTA then complain about having to carry out acts that are immoral.

So you're saying you'd be happy to watch some of the things in a cut scene yet when you have to press a button to do them yourself this is what annoys you? Don't really know what to say
