I'm hopeful that it won't have the terrible issues that plagued GTA IV.

Yeah, "boring" is a serious issue with GTA IV.

If you're looking for a GTA fix and you have a Wii U [obligatory "all 3 of you" joke] be sure to pick up Lego City Underground. :)

I thought GTA IV was a really good game, and if you have a quad core (any quad core) it runs really, really well on PC, even with mid-range-for-the-time (Radeon 4670 or GeForce 9600, for example) graphics. Looking forward to playing V.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

I was never that big of a fan of GTA, despite how awesome it was in so many ways, because you couldn't customize your character.

GTAV is continuing the tradition of ugly, unlikeable main characters, so I guess I'm still waiting for Saint's Row IV... (´⌣`ʃƪ)

Bethesda does open-world better :). That said, I've run out of stuff to do in Skyrim, will have to get back in to Oblivion...

Bethesda does more intricate systems, but whether or not they do the world better depends on whether or not you prefer the world and gameplay.

Comparing an RPG to a shooter is just kinda wonky.

I would gladly trade GTA V on PC if only they would bring Red Dead Redemption to PC. :wink:
