    Let's see, story about war, revenge, searching for something VS bored with family life (Michael), making money (Franklin), and batshit retard (Trevor).

    How exactly is it more fun? Cars handle like on rails, no skill, nothing. In 4, you actually had to learn physics, get gud, etc.

    Ah, everyone?

    Melee was always one of the most fun parts of GTA games. They even had 3 different styles in San Andreas. IV was best though, you had timed blocks and counters, and beautiful animations.

    In V, you just do one swing, and knock everybody out. It's not a gameplay element anymore.

    They are too squishy, and the gunsounds are too quiet, and the guns handle too easily. It feels like paintball more than actual gunfire. In IV, shooting had more weight to it, felt like actual shooting more.

    I think you're putting IV on a pedestal and are too harsh on V. Micheal is not simply bored with family life, his family gets completely destroyed and he has to rebuild it. Trevor is a madman but he is in the right, Micheal stabbed him in the back and he has to find a way to be able to work with him again. Franklin is just kinda there, he's the blandest of the bunch.

    Neither story is great but they're both all right.

    :prosper:

    Floaty movement is always bad in video games, unless you're purposefully making a goofy physics simulator like QWOP or something. When players complain that the main component of your game feels sluggish, you've fucked up.

    I'm replaying SA right now and while the 3 (4 with the default, untrained one) fighting styles is a nice touch, they have no purpose. 99% of the enemies use guns and the game simply isn't designed for melee play.

    I'm pretty sure you only one-swing civilians who don't fight back. Otherwise it's the same, with timed dodges and counter-attacks.
    Maybe they did boost player damage in V? But literally who cares, 99% of enemies wield guns so melee only comes into play when you engage a dockworker on the street for the hell of it.


    I enjoyed the loud gunfights in the grimy apartments and warehouses of Liberty City. But I'd take arcadey over-the-top shootouts with less emphasis on cover use over that any day.

    I liked Michael's story in GTA5 a good bit. Franklin's was okay. Less serious than GTA4 sure, but GTA4 is the outlier there, the rest all feel more silly. Trevor's campaign was the one that annoyed me for various reasons.

    They did a pretty great job of making me hate Trevor right from the start by
    Show Spoiler
    having him kill Johnny Klebitz. Johnny was a pretty great character. I liked how he actually wanted the Lost to keep a low profile and he was basically rebelling against a psycho boss

    I did not care for character switching in V. There is something about sticking with a single character through one of these long journeys that is more satisfying to me.

    Most likely removed, as in rdr 2 you play as one.

    Another thing: can we please have diversions back that actually fit the premise of the series. What the fuck is tennis? Who's got time for that when there are rampages to go on, drugs to run, hos to pimp, turfs to take over, etc. Volition got it right in SR2.

    I agree that those things aren't much fun, but as far as fitting in? From what I've gathered from watching documentaries and reading, many gangsters take an interest in passtimes that are traditionally considered the domain of the wealthy/aristocracy. Such as tennis and golf.

    The next AI they patent will be Cinematic AI ™. It will just sit there and look good.

    GTA series is one of the tragedies of modern game development. Can you imagine the potential they had, where they could've taken it? How about a full on simulation of the mob, with actual mob economies, rackets, bribing cops and politicians, rising up in a dynamic, simulated gang/family... Instead, Rockstar has been making purdy cities and shittier and shittier gameplay for dumb childrenz.

    The fuck? I went through entire IV never using a sticky cover, just crouching behind stuff like in any old TPS. GTA V literally forces you to use sticky cover garbage because it removed the crouch and instead added a stealth mode where character walks slowly standing up. Like, just make regular crouch also be a sneak mode, retards.

    Either that or black magic or defying the laws of physics.

    This feels kinda weird, RDR2 very recently came out and already RDR3 is being worked on instead of GTA? I thought Rockstar mostly concentrate on one game at a time, beside online I mean.

    Would be kinda wild if it turns out RDR3 is a real thing and it was because of GTA online was a lot more successful than RDR2's or something.

    Tbh it's not a huge surprise right. We can safely assume both RDR3 and GTAVI are being worked on right now.

    They have 9 studios, so they've got plenty of room to juggle projects all over the place

    I'm quite sure that's a typing error and that it should read "RDR2".

    Maybe, maybe not.
    Like I said, not a big surprise.
