I hope that doesn't mean an Autolog like system in GTA V.

I loved that in NFS HP but it's an immersion breaker in story driven games like Sleeping Dogs.

I'm almost certain Red Dead 2 (or, "3" as I should more accurately state) will be the first R* next-gen game for 720/PS4.

I feel like the only person in the world who thinks GTA is a bit tired and dull.

And I thought LA Noire was highly meh worthy as well.

AND I just realised Max Payne 3 was a trudge too. In fact I still haven't finished it, and I was genuinely crazy excited for it before release. I haven't played it for months and months, its just sitting on my hard drive waiting for me to summon up the energy to work though it, like a stack of unwashed dishes waiting in the sink.

I honestly can't remember the last Rockstar game I enjoyed.

I hope they can do something about that in their new engine.

Well....I guess they can't please everyone. For me they made some of my favourite games.

Max 3 wasn't an amazing game, but its still pretty good and slick. Its just very different to the other open world games. I quite enjoyed it myself. For me this gen RDR is a standout by a mile though, storey was great.

Yeah, I've heard nothing but good about RDR, but it never made it to PC. Bah.

And OK, I did enjoy messing around in Vice City :-) (But I never finished that either)

Yeah, I really do get that I'm basically alone in my apathy towards R*. I feel like a ginger young Conservative at Latitude.

Max Payne 3 is ok, I don't hate it or anything. Its just full of stuff that makes me go "meh" for 30 minutes before I have 30 seconds of fun, which to me describes just about every R* game this generation.

Who really has time for that.

Don't see how current gen consoles can make use of this new engine to a satisfactory extent when they can't even support DirectX11 and other features...
Gaming is not only food for being content but a managing tool to manage and stem the tide of daily and work style stresses. Don't underestimate it...

@B_G_G Shame on you. GTA is a true gamers game. You can do missions whenever you want or just mess around with the cheats.

Play San Andreas with the fast gameplay cheat, flying car cheat and with full nitro. Then tell me if thats not fun.

I can't wait for GTA V personally. Going to preorder the game tomorrow while getting a PSN card for Vice City :P
