I kinda get this. I'm still having a lot of fun with it and I'm really looking forward to online, but the driving from place to place can get a little dry. And I'm not super impressed with the story line. I'm starting to think I gravitate more toward linear style story telling. With Bioshock Infinite and Last of Us this year, I'd like to see a bit of a trend back toward that kind of game. You just can't beat the level of story detail and nuance of a linear game.
GTA V is certainly not the best game every made as some reviews have claimed... it's still a great game though

I like having both in my gaming life.....they satisfy different parts of me, and I'm complex, JT.

I'm the same, I guess. And there's certainly room for both. It's just a different experience. Don't get me wrong, I still think this game is wicked

This is going to sound ridiculous, but, I think because I read fiction non-stop, that sort of reduces my need or desire for stronger storytelling in games. I mean, in a perfect world the GTAV "story" would be as good as the mayhem....but, while I do want both, if forced to choose one, I'll take a more open world with all sorts of shit to do over the linear, well told story....but, again, love both. Bioshock Infinite was great, and The Last of Us was amazing.....maybe it's simply that those games were more satisfying, while GTAV is just more fun.

I can get behind this. GTAV is the Pacific Rim of videogames

I'm actually enjoying the game much more now. The biggest problem for me was that I'd run out of new weapons and activities. The campaign unlocks more and more though. I guess I'll just have to deal with it and play the campaign so I can have more fun on my own.

As in bird's eye view? I played GTA 2 at a mate's house when I was in primary school once.

I wonder if my brother bought this game. Heading home for a few days this weekend so might be able to jump online if he's got it.

"somewhere in the world, a 12-year-old is running over an innocent civilian to Thundercat's "Oh Sheit It's X"." is a beautiful sentence.

How did you guys deal with the paparazzi trying to rip you off?

 
I stomped the shit out of him, then poured gasoline on his unconscious body, lit him on fire, and took a picture of him burning with my ifruit

Forgot to mention that I experienced the No Country For Old Men event. Made me happy.

Who here is actually planning on getting the next gen systems at launch? I'm trying to figure out which systems I should be preordering games on, trying to base it on who I'll actually be able to play with.

I'm getting the XBOX One around X-Mas time (I usually get about $500 as a gift from my employer every year). I chose the XBOX because of the NFL Package.
