This will be a very interesting game. The GTA series never seems to disappoint. With the addition of an actual live stock market in GTA 5 and the ability to trade stock, purchase companies, buy property/cars/assests etc…this might be the most fun GTA yet for me.
Usually i see “most” video games as a waste of time, but GTA could really help relieve stress while still staying focused on the goal of acquiring capital. The game is centered around acquiring capital so it will kind of help you stay in that mindstate. At least that is how I see it. GTA 5 online will be another great part of the game. I’m really excited for that. Playing with other humans in this kind of environment could be really fun. Check out the videos:
I absolutely cannot wait. My lineup this fall will be Madden 25, GTA 5 and NBA 2K14. Though I have the feeling that GTA will get most of the burn from me. I believe the story will suck me in as always.
Good thing I didn’t sell my current system because GTA won’t be available on next-gen. I believe it is coming out on PC though.
I’ve played all GTAs but my favorite is definitely Vice City. The whole aura of Miami in the 80’s with the music, style and everything. Ughhhh that was absolutely brilliant. I have so many fun memories from playing that game. Tommy Vercetti was the man
San Andreas was probably the overall best and most in depth GTA. I replayed it about a month ago and it was just as enjoyable as when it first came out.
I just watched the online gameplay demo where you can do missions with your friends and also play custom missions created by other users…
I am still confused as to how they are going to ensure a smooth gameplay with all this data? Unlike COD that is played on a small map, GTA will have the entire universe available to everyone at all times.
PS: Do they really think games like GTA where being a thief = cool will have no impact on the lives of little kids (because of negligent parents buying them these games) and they will not be influenced to reenact it in real life? I am on the ‘blame the parents’ bandwagon in this debate
Wait a month for the PS4 (guessing it’s backwards compatible?)
I’m jacked for GTA though. I’m not a huge gamer, but when I do I’ll lock myself in for a full weekend on not talk to a soul. It’s a good way to save money haha. Still trying to wrap up Skyrim though, that game just doesn’t end.
It does affect kids and teens in a subtle way, but not in the way most people assume. I think GTA influences people to have a “do what I want no matter what” kind of attitude instead of being influenced to go out and straight up jack a car or shoot random people. It doesn’t reach that extent in “most people” but there’s still an element of “do whatever you want” that people subconsciously pick up from GTA because of the free nature of the game.
My PS3 broke too. They want $100 to fix it. I’ll probably never buy another Sony product again. Piece of sht bstrds.
And in order to be fair, I think the Xbox is a superior machine. I just like Sony because I enjoyed playing all the old RPG’s. If you like action games, I think Xbox is the way to go. Plus, it seems to have more of a following.
I’m not much of a gamer, so I really don’t know the answer to this. If TRH has a PS3 and I have an Xbox, can we play against each other?
