Thanks for the not needed reply, Just Blaze.

On topic, I notice there isn't a proper manual this time around. What gives?

I feel bad for anyone without an HDTV. Chances are they probably don't have adequate health care, food, or high speed internet either. Basically, if you don't have an HDTV, I'm going to assume you're either a) impoverished or b) living in a 3rd world country ...

Haven't gotten that far yet, but I have gotten far enough to see what Rockstar is commenting on. This game is a pretty good dissection of American culture, American problems with complacency and violence, and I'd imagine the torture scenes are somewhat of a commentary on how far we've come since the days when our country was founded by idealists who were worried that the military tactics used against the British during the war for Independence were "sneaky" or "unfair" ... picking off the British as they marched down the roads. Not to mention that when these guys wanted to declare war, they did so on parchment with calligraphy, not unannounced cruise missile strikes, stealth bombers and drone attacks.

I know the world is a different place and terrorists aren't nations so we have to change our tactics, but I think some of what Rockstar is commenting on with this game does hit on how drastically our country has changed in this post-911 world ... more-so than they did in GTA IV I think even.

I'd rather have neither and access to a digital interactive map ...

Might actually buy the game guide, and I rarely buy game guides.

I haven't gotten there yet but they mentioned that in the IGN review. Honestly, I'd be surprised if it tops a couple of torture scenes in The Last of Us. Those we're pretty intense.

I have a HD monitor in my games room, but my fiance uses a CRT for gaming in the bedroom. I guess I'm impoverished. Go be a fucking cunt elsewhere.

EDIT: I do have a few issues with the game. Missions start when you get close to their location. I wanted to go in to Franklin's house, but instead the missions started as I got close to it. Same with Michael when I wanted to save a car in the garage.

I get killed and let out of the hospital with $15 less in my pocket. I ran over Lamar and was charged $750 to cover his hospital bills. What the fuck kind of surgery did he need?!

An HD Monitor IS the same thing as a HDTV.

Go be a stupid cunt elsewhere.

still no "restart mission"-button. i already missed it in the ballad of gay tony. playing missions for gold-medals will be a pain.
and i would love to see a map, ready to interact with, when i press the back-button instead of chaning the perspective ..

apart from that: great game!

I hate the underground subway tunnels and the sewers.... I went in there trying to evade the police and got completely lost. I had to retrace my steps to find my way out. The worst part is that is was during a mission too.

Is reading not one of your strong suits? Notice the part about the CRT TV right after that. Dumb fuck. People who don't own a HDTV should not instantly be labelled as poor people. Some people just don't have one, or enough for everybody. You were being a prick regarding the Xbox One months ago, and now you're here being a prick again. So arrogant.

So far my only complaints are the sheer amount of times the N word has been said i mean i have heard it more in the two hours i have played this game then in my entire life. Second how hard it is to evade the cops.

Maybe it's not the right topic but well I'm gonna give it a shot.

How the hell am I supposed to take pictures with my phone in the game? I need to take a picture for a side mission but I really can't figure out how I'm supposed to pull up the camera.

There are no tool tips to help me out and neither the regular nor the ingame manual offer any advice.

Soo... I guess it's gonna be pretty obvious once somebody points it out but now I'm just mad over my own inability to take pictures

I've only completed the first mission, but I'm not that impressed.
The driving with Franklin seemed way too easy.
Braking was unrealistic, as the car stops instantaneously.
GTA IV was more challenging on the road.

Welp I figured it out.

Had to use that one Snap app on the phone but couldn't get past the Social Club sign-in for a while so I figured I was doing it wrong. Once I was able to sign in it was smooth sailing

the camera on the phone is called "Snapmatic". the icon in the bottom left corner.
press up on the d-pad to bring up the phone, than navigate to the bottom left corner on the phone with the d-pad. press a to use the camera.

Actually, I was being sarcastic because someone else was being a prick. Go back and look.

But thanks for repeatedly insulting other peoples opinions that are different than your own. You must be a KKK member.

The first thing you guys should do soon as you get a chance is go to the Pier and ride the Ferris Whale & Rollercoaster. Sick thrills, for real.

Not a rant..but more of a concern..

Was playing as Franklin off mission and I switched to Michael, who just happened to be dropping off Jimmy to buy a new TV. He got out..and the gas on my car accidentally went off and I ran him over. I got out to see if he was dead or not, so I shot him about 12 times.

Have I lost my son forever? Trust me I'm not proud..
