    You don't. It's assumed the rampages between missions "didn't count", so you can have stuff like CJ being Tenpenny's bitch while you casually kill a million cops in the game. And when you do get caught, all your crimes are forgiven as you respawn at the hospital.

    I have a movie for this game too. It's called "The Son of No One" (2011).

    As much butthurt GTA Online's success has caused fans of the series. At least it gave us the greatest car to appear in any game:

    What the Mafia series could've/should've been. Yeah, Godfather-inspired open world criminal empire game. Many have tried, many have failed. The cultural tree alone is heavy with fruit waiting for a company like Rockstar to grab. Rockstar knows how to build big sandbox worlds to play in. They just don't know really what to do with them.

    Yeah they're really struggling. Maybe one day they'll make a successful game, if they listen to you guys.

    They should, 'cause I have crap ideas. If they listen to my ideas, they'll go down the shitter, leaving the way open for your successful open world studio to take the lead.

    Passive aggressive comment trading. It's fun.

    I liked Godfather 1.
    Edit: As well as Mafia 1 and Scarface the world is yours.

    Mafia 1 had a lot of promise. I am still waiting for a game with speed limits and realistic cops etc. It would be fun.

    Mafia 1 was cool in a lot of ways as a mob life sim or whatever, but in the latter half the combat got super fucking annoying with checkpoint saves and bullshit enemy placement.

    Fuck I played this game so many times back then, nothing in it was hard to me anymore. It's been quite a long time now though, wonder if it would be challenging again. Will have to revisit it someday, no doubt. Great game.

    All that comes from someone on reddit who says he is friends with someone who worked at some gaming websites.

    2 chapter story set in 3 different cities, with a backdrop of real-world situations.

    So in other words, 3 limited locations with few interactive locations, heavily scripted 'on-rails' story line, and some political shoe-horning for good measure.

    I'd love it if Rockstar took their devil-may-care attitude and strapped some TNT to it, especially considering the PC age we're now in. But somehow that whole spiel sounds kabuki. The hype train ran me over enough times to not care what gauge the rails are.

    There's no way they will drop the current gen platforms, GTAV would have never sold as much without that. So many retards bought it twice as well.

    They haven't launched on PC in forever, that's why he says unsurprising. It'll come to PC a year or two later though, as usual.

    You never know though because the RDR games don't go to PC. They could just abandon the PC. I don't think they will though. And while they keep mass producing the same shitty game with only updated graphics, I wouldn't care anyway.

    RDR2 is coming, PC Gamer just had a story today about it being added to their Social Network app. RDR1 didn't come to PC because of a bunch of behind the scenes foul-ups, according to insiders. It's a shame, but a one-off so far.

    He says "GTA VI will arrive only on the PS5 and Project Scarlett machines." That sounds too implausible.

    Yeah, I posted in the RDR2 thread. This makes me feel quite relieved, I was really attracted to the "dying Wild West" setting and the more dramatic tone of the whole game.

    Rockstar did GTA IV on ps3 which was 'next-gen' without it being on ps2, and the ps2 install base largest in history, so it is possible.

    PS3 was already out for 2 years when GTA4 came out, that's not next gen. And PS2 already struggled with San Andreas.
    You can't compare the progress of tech from 2000-2008 and 2006-2013, it's not even close.

    strawman argument

    The point is that R* previously released a new GTA game without it being on previous console, GTA 4 was a 'next-gen' exclsive back at the time.

    PS 2 user base was larger than ps3 or ps4 ever was so they could cash in for the money but they did not.

    I can't see them doing a next-gen exclusive the year new consoles come out, but anything after that it would probably be fine for them. Gamers tend to move on very quickly.
