    i did? GTA IV is a better game than V in my opinion

    • DarthDiggler


      To be fair its really a trade off. GTA 4 did somethings better GTA 5 did other things better.

      GTA 4 did seem to have more things to do inside buildings. Maybe even more vehicles that had “missions” assigned to them.

      GTA 5 had way better online. The Coop options are way better than 4’s.

      GTA 5’s game engine looked beautiful even on last gen. GTA 4 was no slouch but GTA 5 really stepped up the fidelity.

      Controls are better in GTA 5.

      I really liked the multiple characters in GTA 5, helped a great deal with the missions. Instead of having 1 guy do everything you had a guy that specialized in racing, a guy that did infiltration missions and one guy that did the crazy stuff. GTA 3 had some odd ball missions that felt really out of place with the single main character.

      No Dating in GTA 5.

      Yeah…… GTAV just seems so messy. Its interesting here and there but its just a little too wide some times the focus is lost. Being able to jump character to character is nice but it always felt like I was missing other parts of the story. Niko had a much more down to earth gritty story. And not to mention the expansions….. I loved the expansions so much. The Lost and The Ballad of Gay Tony were classic.

    Sales rankings increase means absolutely nothing.

      • DarthDiggler


        Given your words here Danny, something tells me you don’t have a lot going on. Have you ever considered getting a job and trying to generate value with your time?

    • DarthDiggler


      I wouldn’t say it is meaningless, but this website seems to think it is way more meaningful than it is.

  • DarthDiggler

    LOL so the game went from selling ZERO units to about 8,000 units in a small period of time. It’s a flash in the pan it won’t really make 2017 any more profitable for RockStar and Microsoft.

    Let’s have a sense of scale here. Indie titles have moved more units in a shorter amount of time.

    Where’s PS4 fanboys and their promised Gaikai streaming of PS3 games? Still waiting? lol


    When you they give you nothing new to play….guess you have to go back to buy old games.

  • Barry Harden

    This proves how starved the XBone is of exclusive games. So much so that XBone gamers need to load a 9 year old game just to pass the time. SO sad.

  • NL37

    I got a ps4, after my ps3 rrod.
    I dont get why people say “hurr xbox owners buying old games cuz theirs no new ones hurr”,
    I personally would love to be able to play “old games I missed out on or fun ones.
    Woudnt you?
