For some reason, despite never really getting into a GTA game all the other times I tried, I have got GTA V. I did some shenanigans with a Hola extension and Nuuvem.com.br to get it for about £20 (Rockstar Social Club key, not Steam which would be more expensive and still need the R*SC thing). It looks really impressive from the trailer - http://videos.rockst..._us-1080p60.mp4 and I've a fancy PC to be stretching.

Anyway. 60 fucking gigabytes of a download done, it actually unlocks for play on the 14th or something. Anyone else getting it? Apparently we can do fun online things.

No interest really. The GTA games have just diverged so far from what I enjoyed about them. I liked them as sandboxes where I set my goals (my goal was usually: jump over stuff on a motorbike) and the missions were a mildly amusing mechanism for unlocking new bits of the map.

Recently they've tried to make the missions 'better' and turn it into a more narrative-led experience which for me completely misses the point. GTAIV was fucking tedious.

I know you can still just dick around and do your own thing but you're constantly being nagged to do some boring shit and interact with all these mini-games and superfluous systems they've bloated it all up with.

I went off GTA when it became 3D/first/third person.

I'm probably in the minority with that view but I loved the top down games.

Did you play the Ballad of Gay Tony? I enjoyed that a lot more than the GTAIV game proper. And there was that automatic shotgun that could deform cars in 1-2 hits - that was great fun.

I still fire that up from time to time to have blast around the city (now I've completed it), and play a game of cops and robbers where I'll try and escape the highest wanted level.

I think I got them in a GTA blow out sale they had on Steam - all the games up to GTAIV (including DLC) for a fiver. I've never given them much thought and had all but forgotten about them. I've seen videos of them, but wasn't too impressed. Not wanting to judge a book by its cover n'all that, I might fire one up tonight.

I did. It was good in the sense that it was well written and acted and that. But... that's not what I want from a GTA game. If I want a narrative experience other games do that way better. And its presence dilutes/distracts from what I liked about GTA.

Well, that's where I've been at hence hardly bothering with the last few. But still, here I am. Hey, multiplayer should still be all that fun stuff, right?

It's OK, I never really actually get online to play anyway so that'd be for the best :'(

Between networking problems and jerks I've never got much from online games. I did like Tribes online though.

I really like the premise of this one, even though the graphics look pretty retro-sucky:

I watched that video and, as a nigger, I find it offensive that I'm expected to play the role as some goddam fuckin' honkey! :@

Nope, not alone. My favourites were the first and second ones. I hated the third and never bothered with the rest.

I jumped on it straight away and sold my Xbox copy as I only played it twice. Its brilliant and beautiful and I can't stop the fun. Managed to get a gang of mates playing last night, the races are a lot of fun and the Team deathmatch are just manic. There are a lot of weird network problems going on at the moment though which did spoil a few jobs.
This is what we as a group have always wanted, a place in GTA world to hang out and do stupid stuff. together.

I am going as wattsy if you want to add me.
