    I finished every rockstar sandbox game and dlc except the Zombie one for Red Dead and Gay Tony and the Damned for GTA 4. I could not be more excited for a game than for GTA 5. Disappointed that the PC version will lag by 6 months or so, but we are used to that now.

    You are a hero! I always get stuck on a mission were I get lost or something stupid and never finish the games ha ha. I finished Red Dead though, including the the zombie pack. Loved that game. I finished LA Noir too though I could go back and grind it for achievements. I can't be bothered though.

    I'm really hoping for a HD pack of GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas. I'd like to replay and maybe finish the first two, and I never did get San, GTAIII is on the PS2 emulator thing on PSN, but I want tropheys and prettier graphics.

    No hero, I rarely finish games but the GTA ones get me hooked like no other.
    The funny thing is I was VERY opposed to GTA3 when I first read about it. Killing cops and stealing hookers money? That sounded terrible. Then I actually played it and understood what RS was going for,

    Sounds way too complicated having to keep up with three characters in a game that swamped you previously when you only had one to look after. Managing the friend groups of the three will be worse than "Farmville". the others will do their own thing, but who knows how adverse the effects that will cause.

    Ugh.

    I got the article via digital download last night, it sounds really effortless to swap between characters. There have been squad shooters that have allowed similar mechanics in the past so I am confident V will pull it off brilliantly.

    There's now a "flipping-the-bird" button? It's about goddamn time. I hope you can bust out your driver-side window and flip fools the bird, instead of shooting them to death. (I mean, I know Saints Row has had that exact feature for the past two games now, but still.)
    Missions inspired by "Three-Leaf Clover"? YES PLEASE.
    "Dogs jump against fences if you walk too close." Means they're introducing animals? PETA is going to love that.

    It's official, from Rockstar: [​IMG]
    I never get pissed at game-dates being pushed back any more. Get it right, then charge me $60 for it. I know not every developer has the luxury, but I'm totally down with the, "It's done when it's done"-attitude. Take your time, Rockstar. I have plenty of games to keep me entertained. Delay it until you feel it's perfect. This is such a big and important (important for having fun, anyway) game that they need to make sure it's not rushed. I like it.

    I'm a GTA fan, and looks like I'll be picking this up on release day.

    I'm betting almost dollars to donuts there is a version of this for PS4/XBOX720. I'd be shocked if not.

    Holy shit. Rockstar just won videogames.

    Max Payne 3 was one of the most fun online experiences I've had in awhile; mixing its gameplay up with GTA's open-roam world sounds like this will be fucking inspirational.

    Hiring other people, and then placing bounties on their heads? Yes, please.

    I look forward to inviting my friends over to my new apartment for a housewarming party, then murdering them all with a grenade.

    A worthy sendoff to this generation of consoles.

    The previews for this look too overwhelming. If it's possible to have to much to do to the point that the game is unplayable, this might be it.
