GTA V
 
Purchased it yesterday...it's pretty fun, city is huge, great graphics...the last GTA that I played was San Andreas, a pretty huge improvement for me obviously cause san andreas was on original xbox...I do like that you do not lose your weapons or ammo when you die. can't wait to do co-op with my buddies.

I'm waiting for the PC version, but from what I've seen, the thing I like the most is the amount of heist missions. Loved them ever since VC and Heat being one of my favourite movies also helps.

so far out of the cool vics in the game i hijacked a helicopter and a small jet...bailed out of helicopter over the ocean graphics are so damn good and i played about 4 hours last night and didn't experience anything wrong with the framerate. :D

If my internship hadn't just ended, I would absolutely buy this - even at $60. Looks like a first-class game.

Darth Avlectus 09-19-2013 09:50 PM

Looks marvelous. You people go ahead and enjoy it for me.

Quanon 09-28-2013 02:21 PM

Just started the game. Really enjoying it, it's a big city on an enormous island. Haven't explored to much yet. The graphics are really nice, though I think it'll look 10x more impressive on PC. But that needs a good port ofcourse.

Not to far into the story yet; but liking the characters thus far. Not to mention the crazy TV shows and hilarious radio post and commercials. GTA at its best!

Bought on day 1 and finished. It's a really great game.

I don't really know why this surprises me, but it does. Didn't take you for the GTA type.

I have it, haven't finished it just yet. Definitely a great game so far, though.

I'm waiting for the PC version, but I have no doubt it's a great and very entertaining game with which I'll have fun for dozens and dozens of hours. :)

Lynk Former 09-28-2013 11:23 PM

@ Taak: What type do you take me for? :p I play a lot of different types of vidya. Been playing GTA since the very first one.

LDR 09-29-2013 01:39 AM

Just beat it a few hours ago. I loved it, it was extremely fun.

Going on scavenger hunts, however, isn't fun at all. At least it wasn't as bad as it was in GTA IV.

It just feels like you'd dislike the lack of meaningful "purpose/substance" it has as a game, as it really IS just mindless fun to be honest.

GTA Online today, I'm about to check my Xbox! The ending was terrible, by the way. All three. The only decent one being Option C ;)

Lynk Former 10-01-2013 01:25 PM

Super Mario Bros. is just mindless fun too ;)

In the last two months, I've bought around 60 games... I tend not to stick to just one type/style/genre of game and try to play as much as I can.

adamqd 10-02-2013 06:23 AM

Just made myself on the online option... It's basically like trying to make a white person on NBA 2K on the PS2... Look crap compared to all the other characters.

I think my PC might explode at the very thought of trying to play this even on low quality lol

Lynk Former 10-02-2013 04:54 PM

I gave up with GTA O... just not worth it... had to remake my online character 4 times cause of the various issues that online is having and after coming out of the clothing store a random other player ran me over and then shot me with me having no chance of avoiding. So yeah, I'd rather play Monster Hunter for many hours than GTA Online lol.

Taak Farst 10-02-2013 05:12 PM

Decided GTA O isn't worth the hassle and will try it out, should I get the PC version whenever it comes. Have given my copy of GTA V to a friend, to spare him the expense of buying it. Good game, but like all GTA games, I never play them again once I have completed them.

swphreak 10-12-2013 05:37 PM

I was originally going to pass on GTA:O, but I got a free month of Live, so I gave it a try. The first week was rough, I only tried twice throughout that first week and then didn't bother.

After a few patches, I tried again a few days ago, and having a blast. It really helps to play with a crew/friends instead of random people who will do nohing but try and kill you.

The racing is a lot of fun with crew/friends who won't be *******s and ram you off the road and whatnot.

My main complaints are:
1) Can't buy grenades until level 15+, but there are missions that have you destroy vehicles/planes. That's annoying.
2) The NPCs seem to all be eagle eyed snipers. Can't tell you how many times I've been headshotted by a thug with a SMG at extreme range.

Darth Avlectus 10-13-2013 10:43 PM

I'm glad you people are enjoying it. I'm not sure why I'm apathetic to it.
In fact I realize now, taking my roommate to gamestop for the midnight release of the new pokemon, I haven't been to gamestop to actually buy anything in over a year.

Perhaps it's just such a long history and that I have done all that I care to do with it.

Yeah. That was implemented in GTA IV, if I am not mistaken.

All GTA games since GTA3 are like that, probably to make the border of the entire game's map a little less unseemly.

This your first GTA game? I was immersed like this back in vice city. Yeah it's common fare. I'd expect nothing less.

Same here. And this time around...I'm kinda 'meh' towards the franchise now.

Guess I'm patrolling this thread hoping for something terribly new to suddenly jump up as an excuse to check it out. Don't really know what my lack of interest is caused from.
