Well there goes another $50 and hundreds of hours I could've spent on something else.
Here's hoping it's better than 4. Not that 4 was unplayable and awful or anything, but I think the story was terrible and the heavy leaning towards "realism" really killed a lot of the traditional GTA atmosphere. I'm just going to assume they're keeping the awful, cover-based-shooting bullshit, though, which is unfortunate.
If the rumors are true that this will feature multiple playable characters, that could be an interesting twist.
It will probably keep the slippery streets and cars covered in butter.
GTAIV was a bore, plain and simple.
I enjoyed GTA IV but San Andreas was one of the best games ever made ever, and IV couldn't follow that.
V could go either way.
Back to San Andreas? Sweet, that was the best of the ones on the GTA 3 engine.
The game will probably be bigger than GTA4, but I seriously doubt it will involve all of San Andreas. It'll probably just be confined to Los Santos and some surrounding wilderness.

I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of Saints Row The Third and Just Cause 3
Pardon? Oh, I'm sorry, WHO WANTS DESSERT, Crusader Kings II and my Skyrim preorder were telling me to come look at this GTA trailer. You said something about some saints in an argument?
Hey, I didn't see you guys down there, what with Arkham City and Deus Ex: Human Revolution blocking my view. Are you guys fighting about saints in the sky or something?
Is somebody saying something? I can't hear you over the sound of me playing Doom.
It tries so hard to paint a culture made of npc's you're just going to be shooting and punching randomly while swearing at for no reason.
What annoying social mechanic will ruin this one?
You either take part in grind quests for cash, or sign on every Monday morning with the social.
If only I hadn't starred the video already, I could have given my stars to Stanley.
Do the same shit you've been doing since 2001!
But it's realistic now! Because what video games need the most is being super realistic.
Where are the goombas and raccoon leafs? This game sucks.
is that tommy vercetti/ray liotta narrating?
Hoping I don't have to colour inside the lines again. I realize I'm not saying anything new on this page, but man was GTA4 a lifeless game (and Red Dead Redemption a massive exaggeration of it). It's still the first 3D GTA game I haven't finished, just because I didn't feel like turning the Xbox on to play it after a while.
GTA IV was the last PC game I actually paid for. I spent $80 on it; I got home, installed it, and found that it sputtered along at five frames per second despite my computer being well over the recommended specs. I heard there was a patch which fixed the awful performance issues and I was all set to go hunting for it... but then I started thinking about how I'd already played GTA IV, at my friend's house, on his PS3.
I never installed the patch.
OGDEN'S FUCKING NUT GONE FLAKE!

"GTA:San Andreas" was where the GTA honeymoon started to end for me. I know "GTA: Vice City" had problems, but I thought they had found just the right mix of sandbox and story-driven game.
GTA:SA had too much going on and too much to do. Ditto for IV, not that I can play it on my own PC. I played through some of it on a friend's machine and found the single player game more bothersome than fun although multiplayer is delightfully chaotic and always a blast.
I don't know if this latest installment will be any better, but I do know it will never run on my equipment and I don't have the disposable income for a new one.
Video gaming has left me behind.
I guess I'm the cranky old man here. I thought the franchise peaked with the very first island in GTA3 and its awesome San Francisco crazy hills. Vice City's map was boring, and San Andreas took WAAAAay too long to drive anywhere (oh, all that time you spent capturing gang territory? This scripted STORY event takes it all away from you!).
Also the radio stations have been getting progressively less funny (for gods sake drop Lazlo already).
THERE ARE BLIMPS!
you've come a long way, Rockstar.
I hope the doggies will be immortal. I love shooting cops and chainsawing hookers, but damn if I won't be extra special careful not to hit a doggie on accident.
Cats, on the other hand? If they're in this, fuck em, it's open season on kitty.

Another game with cynical shitty writing that I don't want to play but at least it's more colorful this time.
Is it me or did it look like there were groups of migrant workers in places? That'd be a great (optional) minimission: pickup migrant workers and exploit them on your hemp farm. Then when it comes time to pay, call immigration.
A little presumptuous saying this video will be an Auto Five don't you think? DAMN YOUR PRESUMPTIONS!
Figured it would be San Andreas, Vice City, or London, I wouldn't have been disappointed with any of them
Between the new shit coming out and the hardware I'd need to play it, I need like two grand. Anybody got a couple gs?
3, Vice City, San Andreas and 4 were all masterpieces their time. There would be no Saint's Row or Just Case so let's not get ahead of ourselves here.
I really hope they fix two major problems with GTA4. More mission types and some actual use for money, please. After the heist mission in GTA4 I never ever needed to gather money again. Too bad I still didn't have anything to actually use it on, apart from buying new guns if I accidentally got arrested, which only took a mere percentage of my wallet.
Oh, and less serious writing would be nice, too. Moping over dead people doesn't really fit GTA since half the time you are disobeying general laws and driving over old ladies and grenading prostitutes anyway. Vice City might be the one game in series that really captured a perfect mixture of main character with loony motives and gameplay with loony mechanics.

I never liked the GTA games. They always felt, I dunno, objectiveless. I played Vice City, San Andreas, and VI, and I simply couldn't get into them.
I guess I'm just one of those faggots who would rather play a linear piece of throwaway shit like God of War or Final Fantasy. Oh well.
The problem with most sandbox games, including the GTA franchise, is that they try to distract you from the fact that the main missions are mostly doing the EXACT same thing over and over and over and over. In other words, they really don't have much going on.
I like Vice City because of the soundtrack, and those sweet 80s cars.
