FFD: Are you buying GTA V?

1 min read

I’ll be pretty blunt. I hated the hell out of GTA IV. While Niko Bellic may have been a loveable rogue, his fat annoying cousin was, well…fat and annoying; and the tone of the game and the pursuit for realism (at the time!) regularly made me sick to my stomach. I just didn’t find the game fun.  And yet, here I am, caught up in the ridiculous hype that Rockstar has very carefully curated.

And yes, I’ll be getting GTA V  when it launches next week Tuesday. It looks like a massive improvement, and seems to bring back the fun. Plus, I’m really intrigued by the character switching mechanic between the three protagonists.

Plus, it really seems like a technical marvel, eking out the very last drops of performance out of the current consoles, which probably excites me more than the actual game.

Am I just being suckered by the hype or should I genuinely be this excited? Are you buying GTA V? If not, tell us why (unless you’re a Pc gamer. We already know why).

    Nope. Not getting it. GTA IV left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth as well. R800.00+No Fun = Once bitten twice shy. GTA V certainly looks amazing, I’ll wait for the eventual price drop and get it then.

      I follow the same rule. Plus it’ll likely have an add-on or DLC, get it all in one go.

        Even if there is no DLC (what are the odds) paying R800 is just too much…

      I’m with you dude!
      The way I see it R800 for one potentially awesome game.

      Or R800 for 3-5 tried and tested awesome games.

      Also GTA 4 just wasn’t all that in my opinion

      Word of advice for the future? The first GTA game on any new engine (GTAIV, GTA3 etc…), will always have less bells and whistles than the 2nd or 3rd iteration on an engine (GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas).

      Not that I care whether you buy it or not, but GTA V, should basically be to GTA IV, as Vice City was to GTA 3. Ergo, it should be batshit fuckin crazy. I have the luxury though, of not caring, because I loved GTAIV. So, whichever 😉

    The 7th gen was odd. The jump from the last gen was massive. So many devs decided that with real graphics would come real immersion so they focused on realism. But the fun factor got lost along the way.

    GTAIV scared the shit out of me and after shooting a pedestrian I felt a little sick.

    The boys and girls at Rockstar now understand where they went wrong. With an extra 165 million to prove it. FUN FUN FUN FUN That was said around 20 times in the teaser gameplay video.

    This game is going to set the bar so high that I feel it will take the 8th gen 4 years to catch up.

    GTAV BABY!!!

        It was poorly paced. For me the game was fine up until rolling Fat Vlad into the river then I had no idea what was going on. All these characters would pop into the story and then just vanish.

        Also, I hated the shooting and cover. It was like rolling around in a ball pit covered in honey.

        That pissed me off. DLC. We all frowned upon it back in the day and the 55million timed exclusive deal with Microsoft fucked up the game because they took the fun part of the game out to milk.

          You really should, it’s dirt cheap now and you won’t find better value for money DLC as both were more like expansions than DLC. Complete story arc’s and hours of fun in a city you already know with storylines crossing paths occasionally. I loved them but I did wait for the prices to drop and got them on PC.

      But even if half the budget was spent on the social shit you are still left with the most expensive single player game ever created.

          Yes, some add some amazing cloaks, weapons, armor and creature varieties into the game. Then there are the unofficial patches that sort out a lot of broken code in the game. And let’s not forget the one’s that actually make the dragons worth fighting.

      I’m assuming then you’ve grabbed the Hi-res texture packs available.
      There are also some pretty nifty tweaks to be downloaded which enhance certain graphical aspects of the game, worth looking into. Over 360hrs clocked myself.

Im on xbox360, not sure how gta v is going to perform on this old hardware. Too many unknowns for me to spend that much money. why are they flippin hiding gameplay videos!?

    I’m not going to be picking this up at launch – mainly because I haven’t enjoyed a GTA since the 2nd one.

    That said, this iteration is looking like fantastic fun, and I will be keeping an eye out for reviews, comments, and special deals (discount ftw).

No, I don’t care that some people will try talk me out of it – everyone is entitled to their own opinion… But my opinion is that this could well be another Game of the Year 2013 contender! Yes, that might change once I’ve played it… But, for now, I’m super excited and cannot wait to get started with it!

    Short answer, no

    Long answer, I never really got into the GTA series as a game. Sure, stealing a car and running people over is fun, for a while (and the tank in GTA2 (I think) was helluva fun to go rampaging with), but never really got to the point where I’m like “I want that game”
