    Looks promising. Here's to hoping they've done away with that ridiculous auto-aim function that ruined GTA IV's multiplayer.

    Looks great. I commend them for not charging extra, considering this launches after GTA V.
     
  5. I luv GTA and I will 100% absolutely buy "V" it but...
    Only on PC, think I am gone not care about this b4 I see a proper coming to PC statement.
    I bought "IV" on 360 first... but the PC version is the one I spent a lot of time on.

    If this is gone be some kind of long term online thingy and on 360 and PS3 nah....
    This sounds strange and fishy.....I am simply not sold on this on console.
    Maybe I missed the hole point and this is on PC ....shrugs

    I have been sold on empty fancy worth less console promises from these company's way
    to many times.
    It does not mater what what company it is and what they say... PC is king for games.

    It is their own fault that this has become my view...

    "Ride around and show off", to whom? :p My friends aren't going to be peds walking around.

    They make GTA 5 sound like real life. None the less I hope these activities remain VERY fun and interesting and not a case of "oh we robbed 3 banks, 2 liquor stores (who robs these?) and raced a few times and it's boring".

    Assuming the GTA 5 PC petition goes through, I'll get it on that. More than likely will skip it otherwise.

    There's racing, drag racing, cop chases, biking, golf, skydiving, parasailing, scuba diving, deathmatch, team deathmatch, a team deathmatch editor, and heists. I could be missing some activities, but those are from the top of my head.

    If you have friends, and by that I don't mean couple online acquaintances on your Steam friend lists, then the potential for fun is enormous. Not to mention, the online portion is free and is added on top the singe player experience.

    I hope from everything you've just mentioned meant that they've fully polished off the game play & mechanics. I just finished playing GTA IV and wow it's the most frustrating and shoddly made GTA games I've played.

    GTA 5 better do some stirling work, personally I don't really care for the new activities, or is this what Grand Theft Auto is all about? Being a sim-game? If I wanted to play Tennis, I would go play Virtua Tennis etc... I haven't heard the return of any classic modes such as Kill Frenzy yet.

    So basically what you said in every line, you will get this only if it's on PC...
