Can't you just look at how many missions you've completed out of 60? Or are some missions not part of the main story?

Fwiw, some people on gtaforums are trying to manipulate the Bawsaq market by buying a lot of the Pisswasser (PIS) stock and dumping it on Monday night. So far it seems to be working. Feel free to join in. (The HAL stock has some potential too. Its up over $5 from less than $2 since Wednesday)

http://gtaforums.com/topic/604082-bu...into-it/page-1
I bought in pretty late to this, was around $4.20 a share I believe. Already have $20mm in profits. Too early to tell if its working but it's looking good so far.

Franklin, driving in a completely hooked up sports car, with a huge supply of sticky bombs.

Do it, it is incredible.

It is, but I've yet to escape one alive yet. I just got on a roof and killed everything below and any choppers that turned up. Tbh if I'd had my own chopper nearby could probably lose the stars too, but trying to escape by car is more fun imo. Fighting the cops probably why I haven't finished the game yet lol, chases are so much more fun than in IV

i wasnt sure if every rinky dink mission counted toward the story line or not. like the red and blue dot missions, or strangers/freaks.

i guess im almost finished, though. which sucks.

You're right, talking about problematic aspects of a game in a thread for that game is almost the very definition of "ridiculous". Good thinking.

But that's a somewhat progressive view I think and I wouldn't put a ton of fault on GTA for not adopting it. Also, I think there is a kind of point to the satire in this scene, about the Miley Cyrus types that play a Hannah Montana one moment and are then traumatizing an entire generation of children by twerking on Robin Thicke the next.

I do agree more with what you're saying about Franklin's aunt, where there's just no purpose to it.
The paparazzi scene is definitely more debatable than the other one. I'd disagree that there's anything wrong with or worth satirizing in Miley Cyrus situations. That's slut shaming. The only objects of ridicule should be the media and public who cause a huge uproar when a woman with a previously "clean" image starts showing her sexuality.

And if the game is making fun of "everything" then what's the point?

He might take the game "too seriously"(by which I think you mean his expectations are too high), but he doesn't take it nearly as serious as you take DEFENDING A VIDEO GAME ON THE INTERNET.

P.S. A video game, mind you, that as far as I can tell, you haven't played. You've never posted about playing it despite making the most posts ITT, you've just whined and complained that somebody said something negative about it.
I don't think I'm taking it too seriously, any more than in-depth discussion of any other art can be defined as "too serious". Rockstar wants to be taken seriously, with their epic tales of the American Dream (GTA4) and masculinity or the power of cooperation or whatever GTA5 is about. GTA4 was praised for its "Oscar-worthy" script. Bioshock: Infinite wants to say something meaningful about racism (lol). I'm giving the developers what they want - thoughtful analysis.

Gamers: "The media is bad for criticizing violent games because games are art. Games can have wonderful and meaningful stories. Trevor is the greatest character in the history of Western art [that one's from this thread].

...

They're just games, lighten up!"

I think the main story is done when you compete the 69 yellow missions under the stats tab > 100% checklist.

I'm going really slow because as you say it will suck once it's over.

GTA online is at least right around the corner. Can't wait to see what games the community creates.

Who cares about the carjacking, cop killing, toture, drug taking, racism, mass murder, canabalism etc. It's the games portyal of women that disgusts me.

Not that I think the portrayal of women is something worth discussing here, but the presence of worse issues doesn't condone a lesser evil.

Something that you find disturbing is worth analyzing in an appropriate forum, no matter what the other faults of the game are.
