gta online focused trash
Let's actually think for a second here anons, both GTA 5 and RDR2 had gimped singleplayer experiences, fucking San Andreas had more content for the player to do in singeplayer.
We all know why this is, it's so your goyim ass can get into the meat grinder faster.
You want more? Better play that multiplayer.
>We all know why this is, it's so your goyim ass can get into the meat grinder faster.
>One cayo perico heist costs Rockstar about 15$, you can stack those up to 3x a day
>that's 45$ a day in missed sales(businessfags care about this a lot
>you can optimize your shit and run Cayo Perico for about 1 hour from start to finish
Somewhere within Rockstar's offices, there are businessfags who are stressing out and having heart attacks over this.
>RDR2 had gimped singleplayer
because they put SOOOOO much effort into milking RDO :^)
It's clear that once it failed to pull in even a small percentage of what GTAO pulls, they gave up on it.
The singleplayer game is still obviously shallow, lawmen are arcadey aimbots who respawn infinitely, obviously tweaked for multiplayer. There is literally NOTHING to spend your money on and R* gives you 20k as a fuck you.
I disagree with that anon. They put a lot of effort into the open world. When you're not playing the main story the game becomes awesome, amazing.
This. Going into a town on a murder spree is the best it has ever been.
>10 side quests
>1 unlockable after story
>zero things to spend the 20k on
>tons of guns, clothing, mechanics and robberies LOCKED to multiplayer, things that should've been in the singeplayer in the first place
>bullshit lawmen that aimbot you on horseback, forced to chug potions 24/7 to survive the aimbot onslaught or hide in a corner
its so fucking kino guys!!!!
rockstar is lucky i can mod most of their bullshit out or i'd have drop their game years ago.
>zero things to spend the 20k on
What would you suggest to blow it on?
Clothing, trapper items, an extra horse.
>none of the clothing matches, be it because of materials or shading/texture
this is the biggest piss off
>RDO has like 3 different currencies
>made an update specifically just to gimp the payout of missions
>you literally make the most amount of money AFKing for 30 minutes during a mission than completing them back to back
They fucking milked RDO that even the people who enjoyed playing quit
It's because they can't sell you flying motorcycles, other grief tools, and stuff to larp as a millionaire crime lord...
>unicorn that shoots rainbows and kills your opponents with lethal doses of gay
>homing dynamite arrows(guided by native spirits because noble savages love nature or some shit)
>madam whatserface gypsy magic
im sure they could manage something
see, that would be cool and fun which isn't allowed
that would be gay silliness like the fucking homing rocket flying bikes and literal space canons in gtao
RDO is infested with hackers still, it might as well be the fucking same
>just fishing, doing literally nothing
>kill feed goes nuts
>i blow up
>respawn and get teleported inside a house with every other player on the server
>blown up again
and it's constant too, i can't go 1 hour in the game without coming across some kind of shit that a hacker leaves behind or get blown up by one myself
>playing on console
What the fuck makes you think i'm playing on console?? I just have a shit computer
I just didn't want to assume you were completely retarded. Anyone interested in playing RDO switched to RedM ages ago.
I don't know what that is, I barely play RDO since it takes forever to do ANYTHING thanks to cockstars fucked up matchmaking/loading. I liked trying to make outfits but it's like I mentioned in an earlier post, it's extremely hard to match stuff when it's a different shade/material and while the female faces are better than GTA:O they could definitely have used some work as compared to female NPC's you look fucked up
RedM is a modded RD0. No hackers, tons of additional content, all free.
oh really? i guess i'll try it out, although you did call me out correctly on being retarded
You like RDR2, so you can't be that bad.
I'm just hoping it's user friendly, because of my retardation
yeah it's userfriendly, has a server browser and everything, it's honestly a surprise to me
Rockstar writing is pretty dogshit, at least relative to their aspirations. They think they're making HBO but it's Starz at best.
Sounds intriguing. Is there no grind? That's really the biggest caveat with RDO.
i found out it's mostly RP servers, not really my jam but i didn't look too hard for other stuff like co-op bounty hunting or story missions
It's pretty easy to get money. Even easier if you enjoy the gameply of RDR2. Doing bounties or hunting is a lot of fun in itself.
RP servers are fine. You'll find spergs here and there that go full RP cringe, but most people just BS with eachother and play the game.
yeah... not worth the effort. If I want to grind and do build character things then I will do it in singleplayer. If they don't want to provide that experience with GTA6. Fuck em. This was their last chance to impress me. If they waste it I will never play any of their games. Notice I said play. Not purchase. I own every GTA game currently. But that trend will straight up end if I sense fuckery in GTA6. I know fitgirl gets it. I also know there are half a dozen people I can talk to about disassembly. If Rockstar fucks around then I will put every ounce of my being into learning this style of programming. IRL I hate people who treat me like a fool, I hate people who try to sell me shit. That's literally the only reason I picked up the drums. All my friends were pissing me off because they sucked ass. Don't test me.
damn. you're one angry goy, aintcha?
>We all know why this is
Because of HD graphic crap.
>RDR2 had gimped singleplayer experiences
How was it gimped besides Arthur not being allowed in New Austin?
>not much dueling like the older game
>only random event in valentine and the questline
>no suit that allows you to cheat in poker like the previous game
>as anon mentioned, robberies and guns locked to online only
>RDR2 had gimped singleplayer experiences
Nah it was best single player experience since daggerfall
unfortunately true. They milked the fuck out of gta 5 online for nearly a decade. They will do the same for 6.
It's just GTA Online 2 with some shitty single player tacked on.
fpbp, most of the original founders left while VI was supposed to be a Narcos themed setting spanning the 70s until the 90s in Vice City with several visits to other places and countries but they scrapped and rebooted the entire idea because they want the brainless GTA:O kiddy audience to milk so they just recycled the VI assets for current GTA:O and named it Cayo Perico where you get 40 fps. Rockstar is done for as they have proven with the trilogie remaster they shitted out.
How fucking far we've fallen.
Rockstar, the literal Rockstars of the video game industry have been completely subverted and sterilized and is now comparable to BLIZZARD.
Anyone who thinks GTA vi is going to be anything other than gtao2 is delusional. Like I saw an ad just last week advertising some new expansion for GTA online. We're going on a decade since it launched, there is no way in hell the next installation isn't going to be more of that.
We all saw what Rockstar of David did with both GTA 5 and RDR2. Anyone who thinks this shitty fall from grace dev won't do the exact same thing but far worse to GTA 6 is delusional. Not to mention all the woke horse shit that will undoubtedly be forced in.
Anyone that can't see this is retarded.
doubt it, unless you consider a woman PC woke
It will be woke cringekino
You losers were saying this about GTA V.
show a post from 2006-2012 saying this
gta4 came out in 2008 you japsai
>will it be woke
yeah since it's from the same company that went back and edited out all the jokes making fun of transgenders in gta v for the eight gen remaster (you know, since they're so "marginalized" that activists can get the developers of a series specifically renowned for offending everyone equally and not caring about controversy to cave in and remove jokes that might offend them)
yeah and they were right
>take sidequest from border patrol guys as trevor
>the quest is about them kidnapping le innocent legal immigrant brown children for no reason and throwing away their passports (this never happens in real life but it shows up in media constantly so that normies internalize the idea that border patrols do this)
>in the last quest in the questline, one of le innocent mexicans the patrol arrested says the patrol are "protecting something that's not even there" and then lashes out at trevor and says he's "more american than [trevor is]" demands he goes and kills the border patrol guys and then says "and no, i will not give you a single cent"
>trevor, who normally kills anyone who insults him and goes berserk whenever someone insults him for being canadian, doesn't kill him and instead agrees to go off and kill the border patrol while yelling about how they're all fascists, because 'le racism is so bad even the mass murdering cannibal knows how evil it is!!!'
you know, progressive types make jokes that go like "at least (insert evil character here) isn't racist, he kills everyone equally!" a lot, but seeing how they campaign for actual murderers to get taken off death row while at the same time wishing death upon internet racists, i'm starting to think that's not a joke and they actually think like that
they decided trevor should be whatever they decide him to be for whatever they think is 'funny'
he's just insane and not in the fun way, he isn't consistent in his insanity
I forgot to mention how Trevor starts *profusely apologising* to the guy who just insulted him. It really is like he's a completely different guy in that scene compared to every other part of the game.
The game is taking forever because gtao finally allows the devs to work on a title for more than 6 years, something no one else in the industry can do, not even your precious FromSoft. This game finna revolutionize game design and project management forever.
actually the original GTA VI idea was 70/80% done before the founders left and the idea was completely scrapped in favor of muh bonny & clyde in modern day florida setting to set the base for GTA:O 2
thank god, I don't fucking want a GTA 6 where I can't just transfer everything from Online to the new one
anon you actually think you will be able to transfer things and won't be forced to go through another grindcore slogfest without buying the all-new gatorcards? Are you a naive 13 year old?
>it was 70-80% done and they scrapped it
>Source: dude trust me
If you're talking about the 70's drug cartel plot leak from 2020, that was all fake
it shouldn't have been, because it sounds like a fucking fantastic idea for a gta game.
the played out 60/70's drug story? pass
Gta VI is the culmination of the entire hd era, and will cap the 21st century American themes.
The American dream is a lie, and scraping a future for yourself comes with sacrifices. The bigger the dream, the bigger the sacrifice
>Red Dead 1
The old America is dead, and the personal vendetta you have is just proto-wetwork that the U.S government will be infamous for soon.
>Max Payne 3
there's nowhere left to run from western corpo-oligarchy. The best we can do is wound them, but they will not die
there wasn't a good plot, but it can be summed up to money
A glimpse back at the old world coming to terms with modern times. The Wild West is over and it's Arthur and co.'s last chance to score big
One life, might as well spit in the face of the emperor.
Why so many Yakuzafags are morons
>will it be woke?
What do you think retardbro?
Boring, it will be boring
>will it be FULLY MODELED or definitive edition?
im just looking forward to buying gator cards in GTA:O2 day one and shitting on all the poor people
same dog, I've played your other online games and they're all trash. Everyone plays gta, they'd have to create a full dive online game for that to change. See you in Vice City, KING
Which subject they will tackle this time? 4 is American dream, 5 is Corporate America. 6 is culture war?
i bet you voted for sue murry you fuckin commie
in this thread we endorse a jock cranley presidential run!
The company was taken over by lefties, it's definitely going to be a commentary on right wingers in the south
>6 is culture war?
In order to critique a culture war you have to call out garden gnomes and morons. You think Rockstar has the balls to do this?
I do not have high hopes for the story but the gameplay will probably be great at the very least.
I just looked it up and real White people are only 11% of Miami's population we're the minority representation in this game.
they removed the trannies outside the stripclub that you were meant to laugh at in their ExPandEd aNd enHaNcEd gta5. so you tell me, anon
and a pedestrian insult calling the player a chud. Comically they've drastically increased the use of female gang members so I'm no longer allowed to mock trannies but now I can kill more women. It's fucking bizarre.
>a pedestrian insult calling the player a chud.
Kek, that was in the game and they removed it? Fucking pussies
Am I supposed to see a happy merchant? Cause if it is this is the first one of these where I don't see him
>Anons brain is so fried he thinks it's a subtle racial caricature
>He doesn't even recognize I was making fun of him for thirsting after a series of 1's and 0's
brain is so fried he thinks it's a subtle racial caricature
Eh, its just what I've come to expect from this site
>He doesn't even recognize I was making fun of him for thirsting after a series of 1's and 0's
What's wrong with that? The character is attractive and I acknowledge that, nothing wrong with that.
But this is backwards for their own logic?The game had trannies in the game, It was representation. But now they removed them from the game.. In their own woke logic only a "chud" removes trannies from games.
Here is what's going on with me and rockstar right now.
I get to be a serbian now?? Fuck yeah, let's kill some chechen gays... oh wait, I can't do that? what the fuck is this?
Yeah, that's kind of like LA, nobody is doing drugs, or dying randomly in the street. Where the fuck is the staples center? This is fucking dumb
I have no idea if it will be good. Red Dead Redemption 2 was a really awful game outside of the open world. Basically, the only way to make this rad is go full Kenshi. No quests, no markers, just an open world. But Rockstar isn't going to do that. I'm betting that I won't even finish this one.
>Yeah, that's kind of like LA, nobody is doing drugs,
come on anon. drugs are all over the story mode as well as online
yeah... sorta. But I'm a skater boy. I've explored LA County. I've fought tweakers. I wanted that experience in the game. The real LA experience. I'm not saying the game is bad by the way, just not what I wanted.
*excuse me... "Orange County" that's what they want to be called, bunch of dorks.
Fuck you my small southern town didn’t have a skatepark. I would have to go to the ghetto city to get some vert done
>Basically, the only way to make this rad is go full Kenshi. No quests, no markers, just an open world.
Fucking this. But Rockstar is literally the company that started this shitty "open world" style of huge open world, but its only a hub for linear missions, so I doubt they will ever stop that style of gameplay.
>Yeah, that's kind of like LA,
>i can drive on sidewalks to avoid traffic
>if i buy the most expensive watch,garden gnomeelry,vehicle,etc and stand in the ghetto nobody robs me
>nobody even accuses you of racism when you specifically target minorities to train strength because there are no gyms
>I get to be a serbian now?? Fuck yeah, let's kill some chechen gays... oh wait, I can't do that? what the fuck is this?
Why would you kill Chechens as a Serb?
Because anon heard of Yugoslav war memes and Chechen war memes but is too stupid to look up either conflicts so he conflates Chechens with Bosnians
are the bosnians the sandmorons? i honestly can't keep it straight who's who, over there. they are all just eastern european slavs scum to me, to be honest with you.
Chechens and Serbs are natural allies as they're both loyle to their capo Russia
cuz fuck those fucking sandmorons, that's why.
>Red Dead Redemption 2 was a really awful game
The what now?
>rdr2 was a really awful game
You type like you smoke cock and your opinions are worth les than Hindu poo water in a bottle
John is disappoint.
yeh, the only good gta games are the ones up till the third entry. from gta four and onwards, it became kiddie friendly and sanitized. this is just something that happens to every single creation that eventually suceeds and becomes successful and mainstream. its' success is the very thing that ends up killing it.
I mean, nude mods will probably make it slightly more interesting, but yeah, open worlds are done. nobody gives a shit anymore. what is this, 2010? the novelty wore off a long time ago, and yet we're still getting shit like this alongside tears of the kingdom. who is asking for these trash games? oh and rockstar has always been woke. if you're a polfag and into conspiracy theories then you probably believe that rockstar is a gnomish money laundering scheme or something. go look at their prior marketing and tell me it wasn't just some clever social engineering aimed at dudebros with tiny pea sized brains who wanted to "stand up" against big bad tipper gore or whatever the fuck.
basically there was never a point in time in which the controversy surrounding rockstar wasn't manufactured for the sole purpose of making them a household name and earning the good graces of "gamers" everywhere.
Valid points all around, jesus dude. 100%
>obese latina ass
Bimbo criminal gals are one of my many fetishes.
It doesn't really matter as the main story will be a sub-mode for online. It's just another GTA online update.
The real question is if Niko is coming back
Yes, he will get shot in the head by the latina at the start of the game
Holy heck she must be so freakin badass
I hate that this is a real possibility
Tell me about it, it's just tiresome at this point
Why would he? V already established he retired after IV and canonically took the route where Roman doesn't die.
woke cringe, no doubt about it
All the old devs left Rockstar, shell of its former self, Rockstar in name alone, like Blizzard.
Take a guess.
>All the old devs left
literally a dozen overpayed execs coasting on founder status
their contributions to the writing and game development have been minimal for almost two decades
now dont get me wrong i doubt the actual worker bees making the game are going to be on a looser leash with them gone but they were and are the backbone of all the things you love about post-2D gta
source? one of the driving things of GTA was it's very good music and the guy that was in charge of that left.
my source is all the fuckin devs i sell sandwiches and shit to lmao
i work like five minutes from the new R* north offices
ah the old "dad works at nintendo" or "my main is a jagex mod", got it
>"my main is a jagex mod",
gods i've not played runescape in a dogs age
but sure believe what you will anon believe it or not i dont collect internet points for spreading disinformation
>one of the driving things of GTA was it's very good music
Fucking this. I'm still listening to radios (commercials included) from GTA 1 to 4.
>guy that was in charge of that left
Did he left before V? Because V soundtrack is mediocre at best (maybe it was on purpose to show how soulless commiefornia is).
I bet when the rights expire this year and they remove songs, nobody will complain or even notice that something is missing.
he left together with the founders somewhen just before the release of the shitty remasters, but I don't mind V's radio. It's still very versatile and kino.
It's funny how there is this memory holing going on where people act like GTA IV is a masterpiece despite it being hated on (rightfully) at release due to its' unreplayability and forced tonal changes. They tried going the 2deep4u way with Niko being this gary stu ex-soldier who somehow outsmarts everyone despite speaking like a disabled retard that makes Rocky look like Einstein and the story just becomes more obnoxious and obnoxious like having Niko literally wipe the entire city in the last mission. But hey at least it wasn't V which is even worse because it tried to do the entire opposite. At least I unironically had some fun on GTA:O but the new missions where these super unfunny and cringy cutscenes that go on for over ten minutes became unskippable that's a hard uninstall.
>It's funny how there is this memory holing going on where people act like GTA IV is a masterpiece
The generation that grew up with it is now old enough to use the internet, it's no secret that many adults become jaded and miss the nuances they'd have enjoyed in their childhood.
I grew up with 4, the Euphoria physics alone had me glued to that game for years. I've been playing it since I was like 4 years old, I'm 23 now. I can say for certain that I loved the game.
>Euphoria physics alone had me glued to that game for years
>hurr durr so funny hurr durr
>fuck gameplay I want hurr durr funny ragdoll shit
the hurr durr ragdoll shit was the gameplay, it was ALL OF THE SHOOTING.
I don't understand the "funny" angle either, to me it felt visceral and brutal.
no, it's shitty ragdoll crap.
This shitty garbage physics nonsense destroyed Max Payne as well from a gamePLAY perspective, because hurr durr have to keep on playing retarded animation instead of letting player control character
It's garbage, and only garbage people like it
i can understand max payne 3 since it was shoot 5 dudes and cutscene, but 4 really let you enjoy the death physics.
>because hurr durr have to keep on playing retarded animation instead of letting player control character
like is this really your point?
>anon hates ragdoll physics because... HE JUST DOES OKAY??
>enjoy ragdoll garbage
please show me on the doll where the ragdolll touched you 🙁
you are an anti-gamer.
You are the problem.
Just watch a movie.
>expecting Ganker to understand gameplay design
You know what gta4 also had? Proper dlc expansions not just "here's a new power crept car now buy internet money for it"
The online also fucking worked and wasn't a mess of unending loading screens and desyncs. That, even if you managed to actually get a mission going, had bullshit aimbot AI in them to reduce the chances you'd complete the mission without your powercrept bullshit.
Gta4 did a lot wrong but at least it was a fully featured and functional game first and not a skinnerbox to funnel money out of you.
Don't get me wrong I learned to appreciate IV more due to the trainwreck that is current-day Rockstar but in comparison to the 3D era games its replayability is faltered much more. First person mod makes it at least a little fresh. Also anyone who claims IV's driving was le epique realistique is a retard who never drove a car IRL or lives on the North Pole where he can only drive on ice, first thing I did was mod that as well.
it's realistic. So you simply driving on ice the whole time and the physics are fully fucked up.
didn't know liberty city was built on a glacier, interesting deeplore
>Also anyone who claims IV's driving was le epique realistique is a retard
I did enjoy it, it made going fast and not crashing pretty challenging, changed how you played.
That combined with the amazing car crashing physics made it pretty good if you weren't stuck on it not being snappy and arcadey enough.
Nothing to do with arcadey dumdum, in IV you can't get a car to a full stop driving 15 miles an hour as if you're driving a boat. If cars were like that IRL our world population would be halved by now due to the accidents.
>anyone who claims IV's driving was le epique realistique is a retard who never drove a car IRL
I've been driving cars for almost 2 decades and I'll take IV driving over that abomination they introduced in V. Hell, even 3D era driving was more enjoyable.
I've tried some mods that restore suspension in V, but still every car feels like you are driving a shopping cart. There is no weight to it.
Zoomers love it so it will be the same on rails shit in GTAVI. Press [W] to go 200MPH in 1s. Press [S] to stop from 200MPH to 0MPH in 1s. Taking corners at 200MPH? No problem.
>The online also fucking worked
also auto-aim in competitive
everything after GTA:SA was dogshit, except the DS game, that was still somewhat cool
IV is bad, but for all the good reasons. It screams vision and soul.
sure, I liked the atmosphere and ambience because I'm a sucker for that grimy metropolis aesthetic since GTAIII but the story was just a mess all round despite the good and genuinely hilarious writing in some of the cutscenes.
I think the story's awkward, but has some merit to it. I especially didn't like ANYONE from the first half of the game. Especially the wannabe gangster nogs on the projects. That tv personality guy and the fat dealer chick. The irish family is my fave and the italians were fun. The slavs are a bit hit or miss, though. The endgame feels like a ruined orgasm but then again, I think that's kind of the point. It really fits with that pure 00's nothing matters emo shit.
the Russian arc was my fav since that is quintessentially IV, an immigrant escaping to a country and is surrounded by these exact same people he tried escaping from. The Italians were good too I agree but all around it was unfortunately just a mess that took me out of the story multiple times. You can't have a super dark, grimy and realistic atmosphere and then go on a city wide rampage and survive, wish they kept it serious and just expanded on the whackiness in the ballad DLC exclusively.
>At least I unironically had some fun on GTA:O but the new missions where these super unfunny and cringy cutscenes that go on for over ten minutes became unskippable that's a hard uninstall.
I have no fucking clue what's going on at R* anymore. The games had always had one or two characters in each that is just horrendously unfunny, but it seems like every single character (re)introduced in GTAO is specifically designed to be as annoying as possible
>that Russian dude that always talk about Russia because (get this) he's Russian
>those two incredibly annoying morons that send you out on missions while they sext over the phone
>pretty much everyone from The Contract if you weren't a zoomer who grew up listening to Dre. Also, I have no idea how R* managed to make Franklin even lamer than he already was in the singleplayer
>that glowmoron from GTAIV that sends you to uncover a massive conspiracy behind the high gas prices and then decides to keep the gas prices high anyway just because
>the entire cast from the Drug Wars with their "WHOWWAAAAHAHHHHH COWABUNGA DUDE, I'M 50 YEARS OLD AND MY ENTIRE PERSONALITY REVOLVES AROUND DRUG ABUSE"
I mean, a lot of GTA characters have always been hit or miss, but it feels like every single character nowadays is intentionally designed to be as unlikable as possible
I think the latest GTA O shit was legit written by interns exclusively for free but no idea why they made the worst GTA content ever UNSKIPPABLE
KNOCK KNOCK MY POLITICALLY INCORRECT RACIAL EPITHETS
I have no hope that this shit will be good. Rockstar created a cash cow wich need very little care. They probably do the bare minimum for Singleplayer and focus heavily on online to create even more income. People will buy it and that's it. Do you remember that GTA was a single player game for most of its time? This times over.
If Rockstar had just a little bit of artistic integrity left they could've cashed on 90s/00s nostalgia by making a game based on that time period instead but since they scrapped that idea and most of the OG devs/founders/creative leads left, it'll just be another GTA:O clone on a different map and the story will be completely empty with characters even more annoying than GTA V's. Goddamn I miss the times where your GTA character actually went from zero to hero and became a badass like Tommy Vercetti.
Mainline entries had always been set in [current day]. At least since 3.
Only SA and VC were period pieces.
Now, you know what would've been cool? A modern GTA set in GTA2's cyberpunk setting.
Despite this nothing's stopping Rockstar from making another period piece and cash in on the rampant late 90s & early 00s nostalgia. A great option would've been to have the story set in the past while the online portion is set in modern times because the only things you gotta change is the cars, fashion and maybe some unfinished building in the 90s/00s now finished/without construction.
I think we're a couple years past every piece of media shoehorning a big fat BLOCKBUSTERS sign in it.
If anything, I don't think there's been nostalgia for any time period since the meme flu.
Dunno anon every time I go out all the young peeps dress like it's the 00s and with all the billion movie/game/whatever media remakes/remasters something tells me that's the only thing that is remotely interesting in today's cultural wasteland.
I'm trying to think what interesting things they could address or spoof in VI that hasn't already been spoofed in V and I really can't come up with anything. Social media is still prevalent and is still used to tell people what to think. Everyone is still on drugs & insane, perhaps even more so. If anything, censorship and heavy PC crap is even more prevalent despite not believing how it could've gotten even worse back in 2014. I literally cannot name one culturally impactful thing of the 2020s apart from covid and an insanely high degree of PC censorship.
>all the young peeps dress like it's the 00s
No they don't. Fashion hasn't moved an inch since 2013.
It's so boring it's not even funny.
anon the 13s were all about skinnyjeans/pants, now it's all baggy and wide
>all the billion movie/game/whatever media remakes/remasters
That's not as much a nostalgia thing as it's suits being too scared to fund anything that isn't an established IP. Does the scooby doo thing that was on twitter for exactly 4 minutes before being forgotten mean there's a 60's resurgence right around the corner?
scoobydoo was always popular including the 00s, I remember it on cartoon network all the time
rockstar games in general are a bit like south park
it got old a decade ago
And all that remains is a pale shadow of something that was once cool
the male protag reminds me of this guy
It will no doubt be great in many ways, but it will be woke and more PC than previous games no doubt. Rockstar will actively avoid satire that is relevant to today because if they don't it would have to be non PC.
You better be able to see your female's character sideboob while showering on the online this time. Otherwise it wil be absolute shit and not worth playing
It's going to be another polished turd, only this time the quirky South Park-esque humor that made GTA 5 at least somewhat funny is all going to be left wing woke drivel clearly geared at pleasing the normiefag reddit-dweller audience. Honestly I don't see why any GTA fan would purchase another Rockstar title after the schoolbus fire that The Trilogy Definitive Edition was.
now that Dan Houser and Sam Houser are gone, which were the only people at this point keeping the series cartoony and remotely ok, the game will probably end up like the new Saints Row
Sam Houser is still in Rockstar only Dan left. Seriously why does everyone keeps saying this shit when a simple research proves that's not the case.
>All the old devs left Rockstar
Rob Nelson, Aron Garbut, Sam Houser, Andrew Semple, Michael Unsworth, Rubert Humphries, Imran Sarwar, etc. are all still at Rockstar.
>get to play ass a thicc latina and take BBC
I'm thinking kino
what discord rank did they give you? überchud in pink?
It will be woke cringe obviously
A good amount of woke cringe with some kino on top.
This, I at least hope their are no unkillable chud characters but I know I'm kidding myself
>The original writers have all left
>The last GTA clearly cared more about the shitty online mode over the main story, to the point where the main campaign was arguable rushed and unfinished
>We live in an era where far leftists gatekeep jobs in entertainment and media (hilariously while decrying gatekeeping, but you know they only mean the kind that keeps THEM out)
What the actual fuck do you think?
There's a tiny chance Rockstar will remember they actually want to make money and produce kino, but the chances are the slimmest they've ever been in the series.
I remember looking forward to each new GTA, but I only expect to laugh at this thing crashing and burning.
I already like that couple and i tend to hate every video game character these days. physically you know they could have an funny relationship. rockstar just has to make it like i imagine it
I dunno, you tell me.
but are those cloth physics or just a prebaked animation?
Prebaked, see clipping.
>mfw the game features weight gain mechanics for Lucia
What's amazing to me is that I've loved every GTA made so far and yet I'm wary of GTA6. They've just done that much damage to their name in that time. I know it's owned by Take-Two, but Take-Two has been a shitty company for a very long time, and it felt like Rockstar was such an enormous entity under them that they were highly autonomous. I can't help but feel that they've tightened their claws around them now, and that they are effectively in full control, especially with one of the Housers gone.
It can't go from GTA5 making fun of lefty and righty shit to shutting down RDR Online for a moment of kneeling just as Take-Two just so happens to have an E3 conference with no games, just woke preaching.
Why would it be woke?
You've ben able to play as a woman in GTAO for years upon years.
finally some good protags
Woke cringe. Just want mods, hoping destruction like cratering and interiors are in this game so that mods can become next level
Unfortunately take 2 being so anti modding is really going to hurt that
GTA 5 superpower mods are pretty fucking next level nowadays. Sad thing is, if take two was smart they'd realize that modders create or add replayability to their game. Case in point, you can turn GTAV into a superman game with the superman mod.
The characters have potential to be entertaining, but if they do what I think they'll do and make the guy a dumb fuck and the woman the intelligent, competent and flawless one then it's going to suck ass.
I'm so fucking tired of every female character having to be a perfect mary sue because leftists will scream and piss their pants if women are shown to be flawed, regular people who need to earn success.
>I'm so fucking tired of every female character having to be a perfect mary sue
This can get worse you know. Hot latina might be just a stand-in for Debra Wilson.
Most companies that have become a shell of their former selves, you could notice changes periodically. With Rockstar it feels like they fucked up in a weeks time.
>most original devs/creatives & founders left
>TakeTwo going on a modding witchhunt because:
>shitty trilogy remasters released
>they're so shit, VI's development is leaked by a literal 16 year old UK teen that proves that the original VI idea was completely scrapped when the founders & OGs left and instead is looking to become another modern-day GTA:O 2 in today's cultural wasteland with nothing to spoof/parody or showcase
It truly feels like in the span of about a year Rockstar has completely shit the bed and taken over fully by suits.
>Most companies that have become a shell of their former selves
yes. most companies that made good vidya don't have those people that made the good vidya there anymore, so they don't make good vidya. it's amazing how many people fall for that trap.
For Rockstar? Everything points to them going to shit, most notably, as you mentioned, the founders leaving, that is never a good sign. With that said, good viyda speaks for itself, and rockstar has yet to put out a vidya after all this upheavel. But that's been their flow since gta4. what i'm trying to say is, hard to tell how bad they are at making vidya because they only put out a vidya once every decade at this point.
>video games become popular with normies
>video game developers start pandering to normies
>big business sees another money avenue to milk until its dry
>not one single company can avoid whoring itself out for the infinite greed of shareholders
>all the beloved giants collapse into shells of their former selves as they enter the rat race of unlimited greed
I hate it bros
>Fat Assed Latina Protag
>The most generic wigger wannabe gang banger you've ever seen
50/50 on it being BASED or CRINGE
>wtf white guys who race-mix act like wiggers, that's unheard of???!!
i've often wondered how my life would be like if i shacked up with a red-blooded hot feisty latina babe. it never goes further than that, though, since i always immediately realize that i would voluntarily be making my life into a complete hell if i ever did such a foolish thing to myself.
The guy who held it all together it gone, R* is going to be the next BioWare.
after rdr2 i don't care. its boring
Looks like the exact same game as GTA V but they merged Michael and Franklin and made Trevor a woman.
Coomers lusting for the woman should unironically kill themselves
Why? She's hot, I'm not gonna by the game just cause one of the protags has a fat ass but it is admittedly a nice bonus
Why does anyone think this game will be worth playing after 5 and RDR 2? 5 is 4 but slightly less fun and RDR 2 is 1 but slightly worse. Both have restrictive game design with lots of fail states for going slightly off script. If the mission design is just not shit, with the houses/businesses of San Andreas/Vice City with the AI and interiors of GTA 4 I'll eat my words. But I don't think I will be.
Also the minigames in GTA 4 were fun as fuck, and I'm sick of pretending they weren't
Do we know what happened to that guy that leaked it?
he killed himself in his prison cell while the guards were on break
He got arrested because PomPomPurin doxxed him
Currently being passed around as a human fleshlight by Take Two executives as punishment
I hope they don't focus entirely on heists again, come up with a new gimmick for the game
I actually hope they do but stick to a smaller scale, I don't wanna rob the golden reserve or the FBI, but some banks, diners, mansions, and museums? Sure that'd be fun
>car leaves the ground slightly for half a second
God damn. After reading over this thread you can tell rockstar has lost a lot of faith in the last ten years.
have some GOD DAMN FAITH, ORTHUR
It was only after RDR2's PC port received a delayed release, that really turned Ganker against them - sour grapes and all that. By the time it came out on PC it was already decided by board culture that it's a shit game and most people here don't really think for themselves. Everyone who played it on release thought it was kino though. Same with Elden Ring's poor PC port on release, everyone who played it loved it and there were dozens of threads up at any point with people sharing their gameplay stories and hints etc, but PC players got really upset about it so now it's supposed to be accepted as a shit game as well. Honestly just look at any popular game that this board calls shit, it is/was either a console exclusive that can't be emulated or it had a bad PC port.
The only constant here is Zelda Cycling everything
>IV comes out
>Everyone shits on it for being ugly and grey and overly serious compared to VC and SA
>The PC version was fucking horrendous garbage with forced Games For Windows Live bullshit
>V comes out
>Oh wow now suddenly IV was a great game all along even though it was ugly and nobody can deny how fucking stupid the way car bodies moved while you were turning looked, it looked like every single car in the game had absolutely no shocks and they were flopping around on the roads like boats on wheels
Whenever VI comes out V will magically be this good game everyone loved all along too
It just means that Videogame developers keep lowering the bar and we're forced to appreciate when it wasn't as bad as it is now
I've heard this at least 15 times but I swear to God everyone was jerking IV and V off when they came out and only 3-4 years after release people started (naturally) missing the stuff that the old games did better
rdr2 is a weird game, though. i thought it was fantastic when i played it, but due to how the game is set up, it's easy to start thinking negatively about it later. it's a game set in the dying wild west in the 1880's and everyone in it is like some liberal fucking californian, or something. it's been said a thousand fucking times already, but micah is basically the only fucking person in that whole game who i can imagine would actually exist in that time period.
It has; between much of the old guard leaving, their open admission of GTAO 'not being monetized enough' while also admitting they gutted all plans for story expansions in favor of larger online support and just general behavior like dropping RDR2 like a dead baby when it didn't immediately make seven trillion dollars in premium Buffalo bux the way shartcards sold; a lot of people are done with the company.
Then there's all the security problems in both GTAO and RDO, the launcher and all the shit that came with. The abysmal defecation edition of the 3D trilogy not once but twice-released. It's tiresome to say the least.
RDO is a ship that sailed, if they introduce anything new it will come with ANOTHER currency because everyone and their mother already has 100 gold and 100k in the bank
RDR2 was the last good thing they have produced since GTA5
>Release GTA5 + Online
>re-release the exact same game 3 fucking times
>never release any single player content, all new content is released online only
>most new content can't be played solo
>new content is focused on forcing players to grind instead of enjoy
>release a "remaster" of the original trilogy just for it to be a shitty broken mobile port converted to console/PC
>kill RDO by turning the greed and grind up to 11 without adding anything significant to the game
Rockstar is a fucking shell company, they bleed too many competent employees and hired too many minimum wage fresh from college retards and keep outsourcing to shitty Indiana office companies
I've lost faith in vidya altogether.
>GTA V comes out
It's okay, I liked 4's story better
>GTAO comes out
this is kinda cool I guess
>becomes a grind fest unless you buy goodgoybux
Huh thats pretty shitty
>re-release GTA V for PC and next generation
really? Okay whatever it was close to the next gen anyway
>re-release it again for next next gen
okay wtf is going on, they really don't care anymore
>release shitty definitive editions that shit all over the classics
garden gnomestar is dead to me
Even if you ignore or are insane enough to approve forced woke bullshit in your media, you can't deny Rockstar dropped any illusion of caring for their games when they milked the online mode for all it was worth.
Then they outsourced the remasters to some shitty phone game company. The Rockstar we all loved from over a decade ago is long dead, and now it's basically a glorified EA with a high opinion of itself.
I never played the online, I played GTA V in 2013 for the PS3 and moved on, I don't know what the fuck they have been doing for 10 years. I'll probably play VI once and then forget about it too.
i hope it's woke shit but i can dress the female character like a massive bimbo regardless
females in gaming are the strongest thing since fortnite. get used to us. we're here to stay.
show tits or gtfo
oh who am I kidding? ywnbaw
>replying to bait that poor
you're a special kind of stupid, arnt you anon?
women are stupid fucking creatures with zero imagination and many great insecurities. this is why they constantly talk about inclusivity and violently demand they be allowed to invade OUR private spaces instead of creating their own space to exist in.
It will be shit. Like all GTAs are kind of shit. Vice City was the best of a bad bunch.
It already looks 10 years old. I bet they've been sitting on this for years while raking in t he GTA online dollars.
I want a kino life sim. Hunger, rent, jobs, clothes, hair, tattoos, weight system, investments, real estate, etc. Basically, I want the game to stand on its own without any missions added in.
Okay but that's not GTA
It will be an ad for the real game, GTA Online 2.
Which will make gorillions of dollars of course.
might get it for the big latina booty but we'll see
OOHH BROO ITS AN AVERAGE WOMAN IM GONNA COOM IM GONNA COOM SO HARD OVER THIS AVERAGE WOMAN AAAHHHH
If you think that's average you need to go outside. Shes by no means a 10 but she's above average absolutely.
I'm being told to go outside by a guy who creams his pants over pictures of basic women on the Internet?
What a fucking world.
It will be boring because they actively have said they aren't going to punch at anything controversial, like trannies for example. Active proof is the modifications to GTA5 removing the chud lines and shit when the game has been out for a fucking decade.
It will be the GTA that hard "plays it safe" and only punches on things that are allowed to be punched currently. They'll never do anything that would take balls like have a gunfight in a synagogue or have a protag tell a dude with a beard in a dress that he'll never be a woman.
The politically correct GTA that will sell on name alone but will universally be met with disdain in it's future.
it's probably going to make rockstar a gazillion bucks. does anyone know how large the map will be, btw? are the rumors true that we will get three large cities that will be connected together?
Vice City is Miami I don't know about the 3 cities thing. The white character looks like a redneck so I assume it has swamps and gator territory.
it will be..
here's your (you), now go away
I’ll probably skip it and continue playing gta iv online via xbox
Free roam lobbies still active
vice city was peak setting
san an was peak gameplay
5 was peak consoom
it's ogre. time for a new genre (i'm down with a proper clone too)
I still can’t believe they have Dylan mulvaney doing one of the radio commercials for the 80s song station.
What the fuck
It’s GTA it can’t be kino
I deserve a cute garden gnome wife
lmao it looks like something made out of store bought assets, Rockstar is fucking dead.
The game isn't coming out for another two years atleast, also pretty sure the footage is from 2020. Game will look leagues better by the time it releases
i recently played the GTAV campaign for the first time
that thing aged worse than milk.
Doesnt really matter. Honestly i'm not even interested. Gta is one of those games thats just been around for too long.
I'm not sure if the rumor that one of the protags would be transgender is true or if she was just going to be a latino woman or something, either way I think it could be very fun. GTA protags are ALWAYS psychopaths or sociopaths, it just comes with the territory of being a character that the player WILL commit senseless criminal acts and murder with.
So in that regard I don't mind it being a woman or a chud, because even if they WOULD be written as woke they would then come off as hilariously and deranged levels of hypocritical. Imagine this
>You are a trans "woman" fighting a corrupt system of transphobes and rightwing nazis and no one respects your rights
>You are a woman and you are defying cultural norms and fighting a patriarchal system that holds women back and only promotes white men, you are strong and confident and you can prove that women are just as competent as men
Fucking NO ONE would question a person saying this while jacking cars, committing robbery and running over random people in the street was a completely deranged and mentally ill horrible person
>kino or woke cringe?
If you use or think any of these words, it'll be whatever one you think is bad. Ascend beyond american twitter tribalism.
It'll be the second best open world game ever, only being beat out by RDR2.
I’ve never played a GTA game before, which one should I get? Or should I get RDR2 instead?
Depends on how much you can put up with janky gameplay. If you have a decently high tolerance, start at 3. If not, start at V.
RDR and RDR2 are better than any GTA game, so you could skip them altogether.
Start at 4
start at rdr2
Everybody who made GTA what it was no longer works at Rockstar so how can it possibly be good?
rockstar should merge with bethesda and make fantasy thug simulator. imagine game like gta set in vivec or imperial city or...
It was easy for GTA to parody society when le right wingers and Christians had some actual influence over culture.
Now that progressives dominate and the devs themselves are progressive they aren't willing to criticize or parody as much.
All modern GTA games come across are toothless.
cringe take, have some god damn faith
GTA V was already garbage. There's no way the next one will be better.
I agree that the story was shit, but I have faith that the time taken to make VI will result in a focused story with an actual theme. Seems like it's similar to rdr2 in that Jason and Lucilla will be on the run for a large part of the game. Starting in Vice City, expanding to the Swamps, a trip to Cuba, and right back to Vice City for a tragic/drive towards the sunset ending
