    Because they are disgusting filth of humanity? But you have fun torturing ppl with chainsaws and what not.

    Personally I've never tortured anybody with a chainsaw (too crude for my liking, I much prefer a blowtorch) but I love it when my fictional playable character tortures and dismembers another fictional polygonal character.

    To be quite honest, Trevor is the only video game character who has ever disturbed me. and he disturbs me greatly....
    If I could never play as him I would. Michael and Franklin missions are so much more fun and less

    They`ll release it... but just not yet. Building the hype is great marketing. Besides, they may still have some contractual obligations to Sony and M$ and now, with the console war raging, they could add some. Nevertheless, 650k petitioners and growing is a big number even if you`d assume more than half are going to pirate, it`s still good multiplying that by 50 bucks.

    I presume they'll announce a PC version whenever they'll have a version for the Xbox One and PS4.

    I am one of the 650,000... I have played all of the GTA's since 3 on the PC and loved all of them. I hope for a nicely done and stable PC port at a minimum.

    No he wants all the male characters to talk sweet, wear tight red pants and drink coffee while playing on their ipadpod

    Yeah I feel like a lot of people will pirate it since the online feature is not as good as the single player.

    I assume the fact the xbox one and PS4 are out will mean there will be a PC version , That's a large market. And the game is begging for 60FPS .

    I've always found rockstar PC games are terrible on launch then great after some patches.

    After that we need RDR 2 or Bully 2 , hopefully focused on new consoles and PC.
     
  13. And people "shamelessly" pirate on consoles also. They don't go "aww man I feel so bad" they just do it because they can and don't have the money to spend.

    There was a time, around san Andreas, when people still had PCs. Long time ago people.

    Building the hype is only good for an extent of time! Look at HL3! NO ONE talks about it hardly any more. Sure there are the die hards like me. But even I am losing hope/interest. You keep a person waiting to long the interest just goes away. Better games come out and you get involved with other things so you just don't care anymore.
