What a debacle. Had Rockstar released Online the same day as GTA 5, everyone would bitch but then play the Story mode.  By the time everyone was wrapping up the campaign, the problems with Online would be ironed out.  It would have been like a beta the first week or so.

By waiting 2 weeks to release it, everyone has finished the Story and is just pissed-off waiting to play online.

does this patch make the kill indicators optional? The screen flash for each kill ruins immersion. Why does this game have to hold your hand so much?

The update only made the single player worse!! On ps3 anyway. I cant switch between characters and everytime i drive to a mission icon it goes away. I dont know if rockstar tried to update the game with the online mode or a virus! Tons of other people are having this same issue as well

Since my brother nor I bought this game yet, my other brother brought the game over yesterday and let me borrow it, so now I'm playing it; about twenty percent through or so. I just stopped playing and I feel I left on a good note. So far, it's basically Grand Theft Auto 4, just done better in all the right places, though some of those things are stuff you wish were in the previous GTA's as you played them, and not something unique that you hadn't thought of before, like good checkpoints. 

I think when it comes to gameplay, while I like the shooting quite a bit, I think to a small extent, it's worse than Red Dead Redemption, but again, not by much. Yeah, I'm having a lot of fun with it, and the characters are great and interesting stuff happens. Oh, and when it comes to the problems this game has, I haven't really come into any of it, but perhaps it'll come. I was trying to do one of the side missions, where you get items and what have you from celebrities for the old people, and when I got to the last one, it went away; maybe that'll come back later.

I don't have Xbox Live anymore, and I would have probably gotten the game on PS3 myself, but with that being said, I probably won't play the online aspect, though I could try it on my brothers profile. I'm not much of an online multiplayer kind of person though, though I acknowledge some are great fun. Anyways, right now Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of those games that just stays on my mind for as long as it takes me to finish most of what it has to offer (from a single player perspective), to the end of the year or longer, and I play for more than a few hours in one sitting.

Bah, I can't multitask. I'm going to go play the game in a while, again.

@squidbilly22 what do you need video games for, can't you keep yourself busy milking cows, shearing sheep, and reaping wheat?

@Darkly0  I hate that.....I once fully upgraded a car parked it in franklins garage and than when to the bed to save.  I went up right away to get back into that car and it was gone........

@pa_amb_tomaquet I hope they do get rid of it it isn't that hard to get money in this game all my chrs have millions of dollars and I bought all the properties that you can

@pa_amb_tomaquet The money exploit is gone with this update so delete the patch and exploit away but it only works once on one character. Once you leave the area after collecting the money its gone. I recommend hitting a character with 2.6 million and then bailing.

@Roffey23 This is a dumb question.  Issues come up all the time.  Once they fix current issues, new ones (but less frequently) show up.

@NTM23 yea I don't get why they didn't just copy and paste the shooting from Red Dead Redemption, it was perfect. In GTA5 you can't move the camera left or right over the shoulder like in MP3 and RDR. To cheapen the game more, the screen flashes black and white for every kill and it really takes you out of the game. I remember killing enemies without a stupid kill indicator just fine in RDR.

@NTM23 Pretty much the way I see it, it takes most of the best parts of Rockstars past catalog of games: MP, RDR etc  and puts it all into GTA V.

@West123 @coolguyhero i am not saying look exactly like they show in trailer but atleast it should run like the videos which runs on gamespot review or other websites.

@Dredcrumb9 

The changing over shoulder is exactly what I'm talking about, and though you can somewhat do it, you can't really move quickly as you do the sneaking, though for the sake of the game, it's understandable; in Read Dead it was more of a crouch than a sneak. I just wish I could switch over the shoulders. 

I don't have a problem with the screen turning black and white for a second, though initially I wondered, only for the first couple of times actually, if I was getting hit myself; it's awkward. I still have to play Max Payne 3; that's one of those games I'll be playing late.

@Merseyak @Yamakoichi @krayzie88 @cds325 I have both a PS3 and a 360 but I got it on 360 because my cousin has a 360. Would you all stop arguing over which is better they're the same. Most of you are just trying to justify your purchase of whatever console you have. Go play the game and enjoy it.

@Merseyak @Yamakoichi @krayzie88 @cds325  

wow, millions of 360 gamers, and you use one to form a consensus? Maybe you should provide such reporting to the Republicans since it is identical to the consensus and poll results they rely on.

@Yamakoichi @krayzie88 @cds325 well the only problem I'm having on my ps3 version is that I can't play online and also with the 360 version you need 2 disc and I heard something goes wrong if you install the play disc
