PostSubject: Grand Theft Auto V impressions   Wed Sep 18, 2013 2:05 am

After some... complications, I got GTA V. I will write my day-by-day impressions here. General thoughts about the graphics/gameplay/soundtrack/what-have-you will be left unspoilered, and the spoilers will be reserved for missions/story shit.

The soundtrack is pretty good. Dirty White Boy is much better than I'd remembered, and I Don't Care Any More is amazing as one would expect from Phil Collins.
The shooting and driving are improved from GTA IV, so that's always neat. I find myself using Franklin's special driving ability a lot.
The graphics are absolutely amazing. From the leaves on the trees to the tarmac, I found myself constantly impressed. The character models are pretty great, too. But the real story? The fucking water. Jump headfirst into the Pacific Ocean, and you're faced with the most beautiful water I've ever seen. The animation is brilliant, the colour is perfect. The waves not only look good, but carry you realistically. Underneath the surface, the reefs and shit look amazing. Due to the limits of human lung capacity, I wasn't able to get as good a look at them as I'd like.
Speaking of water, GTA V is the first game I've ever played where the watercraft aren't shit. I rode on a jetski, and it felt just as good as, if not better than driving a car.

But why does the game let me buy/change clothes if it changes them for me every other mission? And why the fuck can't I buy a simple pair of pants anywhere?

Spoiler:
 

So far, I really like this game. The completion percentage I get when I save worries me, however.

The writing in this game is superb.

Some of the dialogue between Franklin and Lamar had me in tears of laughter.

If the game hadn't told me Too Late for Goodbyes was Julian, I would have sworn it was John. I mean, damn.

I really like the colours they used to differentiate missions/whatever for different protagonists. If you asked me my three favourite colours, it would be that muted-ass orange, blue, and green.

Helicopters are still shit, but the blimp is pretty sweet. It's like a non-shit helicopter. The only problem is remembering where you parked it.

The having 3 main protagonists and switching between them during missions seemed iffy. Do you find one you like over the others? Also, the map seemed massive as fuck from the first few trailers, almost San Andreas-esque with the mountains and nature and whatnot. Is it as much fun to explore and diverse as SA?

I really wanna buy a ps3 for this

The three protagonists thing works extremely well, in missions and out. I didn't really like one over another, because they were all really well-written. Franklin is a bit too much like CJ. Almost like if CJ didn't have Sweet to anchor him.
The map is huge, and the only things San Andreas has that V doesn't are the rolling hills of San Fierro and the casinos. They did really well on the mountain ranges and the forest and desert areas. The city is about what you'd expect; it has the GHETTO, the beach, and the not-Beverly Hills. The big thing that puts it above San Andreas as far as the map goes, though, is underwater. The ocean floor is mapped out, with actual reefs and sunken ships and crashed planes and shit. This is good, since two of the side missions involve you diving down into the ocean and finding stuff.

I know it's too early to say this, and my nostalgia for 2004 is still stronger than ever, but I feel like GTAV is at the very least on par with San Andreas. It blew me away in nearly every aspect.

You might be right. I honestly can't think of much bad to say about this game. I felt the same way about GTA IV when it came out, though, and that game is far from perfect.
GTA Online launches on Tuesday, and I'm pretty excited.

I just got "100% completion". It feels really hollow, since I've only done 30 of the stunt jumps, and still have to do the nuclear waste. I'd have finished the stunt jumps, but this one in the canal is really pissing me off.

HERE ARE MY PROTAGONISTS
