There’s a quick travel system in GTA:V so I don’t really get the complaints. If you don’t want to spend time travelling through the game, then skip it and jump straight to where you want to be.

GTA V's an incredible game. Bunch of gaming hipsters up in here.

It's crap, just live IV, and SA and VC and III and II and 1. Fun for about ten minutes.

Now Sleeping dogs or Saints Row..

Saints Row is far superior to GTA.

GTAIII was a revelation, an incredible experience that I just couldn't get enough of. I haven't played it in years and years but still know that version of Liberty City like the back of my hand!

Everything since has been seriously diminishing returns.

GTAV is a brilliant game despite Rockstar's best efforts

Especially when it comes to the online

This is nonsense. IV and V were massively ahead of other open world games when they were released.

I really like Saints Row but the only reason people would think it's better than GTA is the because of the internet inverse mainstream popularity dilemma.

When you turn on a console and it needs to update the system ora game despite having auto update enabled.

IV was just a poor version of the PS2 era games. They messed up the car handling, delivered a dull and repetitive map, implemented a horrible physics system that makes Niko feel like the dude from QWOP, entirely failed to learn any lessons about third person shooting controls, decided it would be fun to pester the player constantly with strawberry floating text messages and phone calls about bowling, and added nothing of value or substance to the formula that had at this point been around for 5+ years.

10/10 GOTY obvs. ;)

God that's annoying, my PS3 switches itself on every morning around 1:00 am supposedly to install updates but sometimes all it does is synch trophies then you go to start a game and it has to install an update.

Cool that PS3 is still getting updates I guess but annoying nonetheless.

I simply found Saints Row more fun to play than GTAIV.

Nah, you can't like it more than GTA (a series I have never really got on with since the first) because of the internet inverse mainstream popularity dilemma, heaven forbid people actually having differences of opinion.

MGS SUCKS
DARK SOULS SUCKS

Need to fill my inverse mainstream popularity dilemma quota.

Kinda grew to hate the main game of GTAIV.

The DLC was good though, I'm actually glad I played those. They fixed a few of the issues I had with the main game.

Haven't played GTAV though, but I do own it now. Apprehensive to start it as Rockstar titles are generally not my cup of tea.

Most Vegans lately are vegans only for the ability to say they are Vegan. They praise companies such as Greggs for getting on board but forget the fact it’s all about profit. They haven’t just created a product in support of your views- it’s because they realise it’s a growing market and absolutely will make a fortune off it.

I’ve no issue with people being vegans. But stop shoving it down everyone’s throats. No offensive.

I feel better

I used to think vegans were preachy, but my god the anti-vegans are far worse now. :lol:

Q: How do you know someone is vegan without asking them?

A: They tell you.
