    Japanese game developers are lazy and have a sheltered and out of touch worldview and ridiculously limited ammount of creativity
    Japan peaked with Elden Ring, that is not more than the typical souls formula but in an open world format.

      Don’t care about Jap game a but GTA is lazy in terms of map and gameplay. AI sucked in 5 too because every guy seemed like a trained shooter so you had to stay in cover like a nerd the whole time. Plus it’s just super clunky and janky.

        Eh, i'll take artstyle over brute graphics any day, it ages better, too.
        The webm you posted doesn't look fancy, but it'll still hold up in 10 years.
        GTAIV was mind blowing for boomers back in the day, and now looks like blurry brown shit.
        This is the problem with GTA6 too, by the time it's out, the graphics will probably look just ok, and it won't have an art style to support it through, because they went with realism.
        Western devs throw money at problems instead of upping their artistic/stylistic game.

        Yeah. There is no Japanese game with metascore higher than Genshin in 2021.

        No wonder why Japanese devs have inferiority complex on genshin so that they manipulated metacritics like TLOU2 by bribing critics such as MH rise,Elden ring,ToTK and Xenoblade 3.

        At least we Westerners still make good game like Avowed, MS flying sim, Diablo 4 and OW2,Halo infinity, AoE4,STARFIELD,

    sir it's all jeet offshore labor these days. AAA game companies hire freelance small "game companies" across the world and split whole work they used to do inhouse among them. divide and conquer. that's why you don't see companies like Valve making any games these days, it's probably last company that still does it old fashion. Rockstar went this path since RDR2. just look at the credits and you will get it.

Even one of the shitty copypasted dungeons from Elden Ring or BotW is far more compelling content than any of the trash in GTA. Both of those games also make an attempt to actually make the world somewhat interesting to explore and interact with, whereas GTA's map is just a huge backdrop and absolutely nothing more.

        Open world is a hard genre to get right and brings a lot of dogshit with it, I'll grant you that. But the nips have come much closer to making an "actually fun" open world game than anything Rockstar has shat out in the past ~20 years. They've been coasting off of the exact same shitty formula since GTA III (which peaked with SA, or, arguably, Saints Row 2), just with nicer graphics and story each time, and morons think this is somehow a vast improvement worthy of praise.

Angloids are losing he video game war, they're gonna lose to Japan like their dogshit comic slop industry. Frick westoids

    They do business differently in Japan. They like low risk/cost, good rewards. Good mind you not interested in great. See nintendo with dated hardware and strategically timed ports of classic games also capcom with the remakes of resident evil. Kojima was the most ambitious Japanese dev and look what happened to him.

    Car stealers is boring and lame and the 6th installment of a boring and lame game is still just that

    It's a game for edgy teens and I grew out of it in middle school after religiously playing 3 and vc and I seriously can't give a shit

    I liked saints row because it was funny and extremely unserious, something that newer car stealer games can't even claim anymore

    I dont think there's another game that sounds as uninteresting as car stealers

    Even cyberpunk is more fun because there's actually good combat with builds and shit, gta is very lame and for edgy teens and idgaf seriously

    Something that's frustrating about contrarians and R* is that people pretend that R* doesn't put their money to good use. This is a company that has ever excuse not to go the extra mile with everything they do, but they do. They design the most intricate worlds in the business, they put so much detail and love into their games and people just handwave it off as if its meaningless because "muh gameplay isn't Vanquish tier arcade"

    Yes, we've established that their games are made to be accessible for everyone, for people that play nothing but Fifa. Now that we've established that, can people realize R* still puts good use of their resources and money into their games despite the games being accessible? There's a reason they can go as big as they do, and that is because its easy to pick up and play, it's moron proof. There's still value to that experience even if you're a "hardcore gamer"

        But you got it right that Rockstar creates the most detailed and best open worlds, their only competition was Bethesda and they are not as good as they used to be in 2002-2011.

        Now only Zelda can compete but they are not as detailed as Rockstar worlds.

        GTAs have no interest in giving the player an engaging game to play. the missions are just an excuse to show you more cutscenes and dialog. you need to get on THAT car so you can hear THAT character's quips while you drive to THAT location and enter it from THAT entrance so you can watch THAT cutscene before following THAT predetermined path while you shoot THOSE npcs, before finally watching THAT cutscene.

      With GTA 3 there were so many different ways to complete every mission. Why did they abandon that?

      • 3 months ago
        Anonymous

        they began abandoning this design starting slowly with gta4 i think. the idea is that your devs spend a ton of ressources in creating something really cinematic and engaging and when players aren't whipped into enjoying it the way the developer intended their experience of the game may vary and throw certain missions in a bad light. as in why should i watch all those gay cutscenes of people's funny dialogues when i can just clip the enemies right now and finish the mission a minute after it began.
        you basically wasted tons of ressources writing plot and other characterizations as well as meticulously scripted gameplay elements which the player simply ignores, playing it their way instead and then maybe even complaining about how stupidly easy certain missions are.
        rockstar might also have a chip on their shoulder with forcing the full plot down people's throats as much as possible since they see themselves as serious drama writers ever since gta4 dropped and ignoring all the srs moments of the game to bunnyhop throughout the gamespace kinda takes away from the narrative part of the game

          It's funny, I personally experienced that in GTA 3, one of the later missions, you have to bring a mysterious suitcase to your employer; the first time I played it I took a side route, jumping over piers and warehouses unchallenged, only to die for some stupid reason right near the end.
          Second time, I took the recommended route, and instead of going unchallenged, I suddenly had a dozen heavily armed MIBs on my tail. A lot harder, but a lot more fun.
          Still, I wish they'd keep the other options available. It makes the open world feel more real, which ultimately is their true intention.

                Anonymous

                yeah i feel like it will go down a similar route, with the player characters only carrying 2 weapons at the same time it feels like highly scripted mission design where you can use certain weapons for the most part. also from the first leak we know there's supposedly like a thousand or so minor and major random encounters, strangers and freaks missions and other similar shit that's meant to mixup the casual fricking around in freeroam. then again who knows maybe they allow for a somewhat less restrictive approach to some missions, but i feel like that's rather unlikely.

                It already happened in GTA SA. I remember rather early in the game you had that rapper friend on a bike chasing some other dude on a bike and no matter how well you drove you just couldn't catch up to him. He had to crash his bike first and then be chased on foot so the cutscene that played when you finally got him make sense.

                technically you could still shoot him off his bike without any mission failed bullshit appearing for doing so.
                if you're good enough you could get in front of him then wait on a certain spot where he does a special animation and pop his ass with smg, or get off the bike and shoot him with an ak if you picked one up from a fixed spawn before. speedrunners use the first trick.

        What's so ambitious about GTAVI? It's just going to be another "open world" game where every mission is strictly linear, where the gameplay will be nothing but shooting braindead mobs and driving vehicles while shooting braindead mobs.

    And that is the best the West can offer, Rockstar is special, other western games are total garbage from A to Z

        The word ambition means the drive to accomplish something. The problem with western games isn't that they aren't ambitious; it's that there ambitions are to NOT be a videogame. Western devs are ashamed of what they are and desperately want to be accepted by Hollywood. Japanese devs on the other hand have the drive to make the best videogame possible. They focus on gameplay above all else.

    So if the japs don’t have 2 billion dollars and a 8 year dev cycle to spend on a single game they are lazy? GTA VI looks this advanced because Rockstar has Take Two give them a complete blank check to deliver the absolute biggest game they possibly can develop. There’s no risk because Take Two knows GTA sells millions of copies on day one, no Japanese franchise can match that so no Jap developer will take that risk to allocate that much budget and dev time.

    Japanese game budgets are a fraction of western game budgets.

    Western devs couldn't do what japanese devs do on the same budget. Not even close.

    FFVII Rebirth is shaping up to look quite ambitious and a great step up from FFVII Remake
    >inb4 "B-but MUH Ubisoft towers!"
    It's neither climbed, nor does it reveal the map, and it also only reveals a fracture of the points of interest.
    Meanwhile it has more minigames on its own than OG FFVII had. The amount of side content which seems to involve a lot of teambuilding for the party seems quite ambitious as well.

    Like mentioned, japan doesnt like to make risks otherwise they would have copied genshin already or type moon would actually make a dmc clone and a big budget fate game or bandai namco finally making a proper anime action rpg that isnt an arena fighter. But nope they are comfortable with self sufficient businesses. Big reason why mom and pop restaurants and businesses are so common in japan.

    Japanese games in general feel low budget. Japanese game industry is very old and has a ton of accumulated institutional knowledge and experience, so they can make some of the best games. But in terms of overall production value, they can't compete with the west.

      Also helps that yen is very weal right now so they cant afford to overbudget.

    So, like. What do you even do in GTA other than shoot guys and drive around? I played some San Andreas at a friend's house when I was a kid and I thought that CJ getting fat and an afro was pretty funny and there was a weird car dance minigame but I think they removed that kind of stuff. That was the last time I played GTA.

    Rockstar is a unicorn, there literally isn't a single studio on Earth that can match their production values. They're essentially the equivalent of a large publisher like EA pouring pretty much the entire company's resources and studios into making one (1) game every half a decade or so, it's completely ludicrous.
