Is Replaying the Story Mode Worth it for Achievements?

Apparently I missed Story Mode Achievements for GTA V. Just Wondering if it's worth Playing through it again... Which Sounds Fun doing it twice. Any Advice For My Second Play through?

You can select to replay all the missions via the in game options, so there's no real need to restart.

Depends how much you like achievements I guess, it's a question only you can answer yourself.

I replayed the missions to get gold, but that's about it. I found it pretty fun, somewhat challenging for a couple.

My question is, how did he not get "story mode" achievements when they can't be missed...? Everything that isn't a secret achievement isn't really "story related" as you don't get them in specific missions, but some are only available to get after completing certain story missions.

You can skip missions if you die too much by pressing (X) I believe.

It also Says I'm Missing Strangers and Freaks Missions, For Example Pulling One Last Favor, A Starlet in Vinewood, Death at Sea, Uncaculated Risk. IDK Why though

Well, those are based on the collectables (except for One Last Favor), and are only gotten after you complete whatever (letter scraps, submarine parts and parachute jumps respectively).

You need to progress to a certain point in the Story in order for Dom to give you the last jump.

Also, to the OP, if you die too many times, you're given the option to skip missions. If you skip a mission that's tied to an achievement, you miss the achievement. I believe replaying from the Replay Menu will unlock the achievement.

If you mean replaying the entire game for the "Missable Achievements" listed in the Guide, that would be really boring, imo, and it's a shame you didn't snag them on your first run.

As for replaying the entire game for Gold Medals (if that's what you meant), like the others have said, just Replay missions. It's tedious, but that's an easier solution.

Hope he didn't go so far as to start a whole new game over his previous save. This is why I like games with multiple save slots. Saved me a little headache with the first Darksiders.

Go to missions at the pause menu then select replay. Choose which one you want.

This is also handy for the achievement ""Solid gold baby" for getting 70 gold medals from missions.

As biggd said refer to the guide for more answers.

In my opinion, I liked the story very much, I've replayed it about five times just to see if I could do a better job. Just my opinion

I think its a glitch where "Uncalculated risk" doesn't appear even after completing all jumps. It's happened to me and lots of others by the look of things so I think im going to be stuck at 99.5 %


Also the epsilon missions are also failing to show up after locating the 3 items (tv, shoe and something else) so I cant buy the robes even after donating the 10k

Even after completing it, I will be playing through again. This game is beyond epic. I do trade my games in after completing them, but with GTA V, its a keeper. Like a woman who loves Star Wars.

Can I replay the assassination missions and still earn money through the stockmarket exploit? Or will I have to restart?

You will have to restart. Any money earned when replaying missions does not get saved.

Well, for example, the Altruist Acolyte achievement/trophy cannot be obtained after completing the main story. If a player misses his or her chance at delivering a victim to the Altruist Cult before completing the final mission, random events to pick up a hitch-hiker don't seem to appear any more.
