    Default "Grand Theft Auto V"

    So here's a place to talk about the most anticipated game of the year and the most expensive game ever made, Grand Theft Auto V, also known simply as GTA V (not to be confused with the Saints Row 4 DLC GAT V (har har)), or talk about anything Grand Theft Auto, really, or maybe even a killing spree the game inspired you to go on.

    Simply put, this game is fucking amazing so far, though I'm only like 20 percent finished with the story missions. I'm having so much fun exploring Los Santos, which feels as alive as a real city, thanks to superb sound design as well as the best graphics you're likely to see in the seventh generation of consoles. I might actually buy the PC version when it comes out just to marvel the game in all its DirectX 10/11 glory.

    The game's a massive improvement over Grand Theft Auto IV in every way. Where GTA IV felt like a step backwards from its predecessor San Andreas, GTA V truly is the step forward I would expect from a GTA game in the HD generation. Where Liberty City was gloomy and uninteresting, Los Santos (and the surrounding countryside) is an amazing place to explore. Although I think I would've rather had the rest of the major cities in San Andreas rather than all the countryside.

    Although the game is not without its flaws. The characters (you can play as three this time) are much less interesting this time around, with the exception of the white trash psychopath Trevor, who is a lot of fun. Michael, on the other hand, a bored father and husband to a dysfunctional family, was bland, and Franklin seemed like a poor man's version of CJ in San Andreas. Not that they're bad characters, but I don't think the game would've functioned with just Michael and Franklin alone -- Trevor, on the other hand, steals the show. Though I love switching between the characters to see what they're up to. And my, what a novel concept this game has with playable characters. Still, does Saints Row have to be the only game of its kind where you can design your own character, male or female? I bet Rockstar could come up with a character customization system that would blow Saints Row's out of the water.

    That being said, I still love Saints Row, and I think it was always a worthy contender of being more than a GTA clone and more of a game of the same genre. But man, I can't wait to see what Volition has in store for Saints Row V, which will no doubt both parody and expand upon what was created in GTA V.

    I hear people say it's great and that it's amazing.

    Mind posting a screenshot or two of the game. That shows off some of the amazing things you can do?
    Always forward, never back!

    Actually, there's a feature in the game that allows your character to take selfies with their smartphone, one of which is called iFruit, which I have to admit, it made me laugh out loud, literally (however, the three protagonists' phones each have different layouts, modeled after iOS, Android, and Windows Phone). Anyhoo, you can upload these selfies to your Xbox Live account. Problem is, I forgot my Xbox Live password and too lazy to reset it. And then I'd have to reset it anyway because I keep forgetting it.

    The game has plenty of other real world parodies, including Life Invader, which is the game's version of Facebook. Unfortunately, it's not as funny as GTA IV's parody of MySpace. But who cares when the game itself is so goddamn well-designed? And that's another thing I forgot to mention, the physics on the cars. I am so glad that I can actually drive the cars around the world map without it feeling like Gran Tourismo. When I play a driving game, I want a fucking driving game, not a driving simulator.

    The new Hot Coffee scene...I really don't see what the big deal is. It's nothing that really stands out from the rest of the game. And Trevor was nice enough to drive him to the airport, too.

    The activists are just running out of things to bitch about, I guess.



    I would've loved to do this to random civilians when not playing a mission.

    I also would've loved to tie civilians to a pole and burn them alive, which was the case when I switched to Trevor, who I always catch doing random stuff.

    You should write game reviews.

    Trevor reminds me of you, Über. His diction and manner of speaking in particular, when he's not dropping F-bombs.

    Is it because he's a necrophiliac cannibal or because he says oot and aboot? (Though I'm not from that far up north.)

    It's also flattering that you remember how I sound after one year.

    And I am committing the cardinal sin among GTA fandom; I'm enjoying both GTA V and Saints Row IV at the same time...because I can afford both...their parents, on the other hand, cannot.

    Just his speech. Nothing about his personality reminds me of you.

    You have a particular sound about you that is memorable, I guess.
