What can i expect?

Hi im Sicklyplague and i have a confession,

I have never played a GTA game.

I know right someone who has never played gta? Well back when the ps2 was still a thing my parents did not allow me to play it because it was to violent and as time went on i slowly forgot about it. Now i have GTAV pre-ordered and i really have no idea what to expect except from trailers. So im hoping the GTA veterans can explain what can i expect from a GTA game? I mean i have played other open world games like LA noire and mafia 2 but from what i have heard/read its like cranking those games up to 11 on what you can do.

So what can i expect?

Well, a little bit of this.


Expect a lot of fun. A LOT! I hated GTA IV, but the gameplay trailer for GTA V has made me forget all about that.

Isn't GTA IV Deal of the Week at the moment? Just buy it or find the complete edition cheaper.

You can expect a lot of sly humour, a great soundtrack and everything just generally being brilliant - R* don't do bad games.

You can also grab GTA San Andreas as an Xbox Original from the Marketplace. There are other GTA titles on iOS/Android/PS3 as well.

I think the gameplay video presented a glimpse of what is possible in GTA V, so you'll have your expectations exceeded once the game is finally out.

Expect everything.

GTA IV is like $10 on GoD until tomorrow I believe. You should check it out.

Then I'd suggest you play those games to get time pass by more quickly and let yourself be surprised by GTA. You can still grab the older titles after you've enjoyed GTA V.

I say, you should put all of those aside right now, go buy GTA IV and play it. That will hold you over until V, or you can just wait for the amazingness of V which I think is better. As long as you know you're interested enough in the game and seeing the trailers which is good that you've done already. I've played since GTA III and don't remember how I first got to play the game at such a young age with my mom playing too, but it was a great experience and rather addicting. It's full of Fun, freedom and a amazing open world experience.

B A R 4 D said it best tho.

Never thought of watching gameplay videos on Youtube? Seriously? A couple of posts here is more than enough than Youtube videos?

Man some people cannot appreciate good art. IV was amazing.

OP get Saandreas of the Live store for 15$ and thank me. Get Vice City and GTA III for 15$ for PS2 and give me a virtual high five. Get GTA IV Complete edition new for 20$

As for GTA V it will be like getting a hand job by your girl friend on a roller coaster.

So i ordered the GTA collection for ps2 that also included liberty city stories and the guide for vice city. to bad when i tried my ps2 the cable seems to be shot as it kept giving my black and white instead of color when i played battlefront. Yay for old stuff that goes bad!
