@BattleSpectre: Gamespot has been broken like this for over 2 years now(for me anyway). When I first started out on gamespot, I always got notifications. Now even if I have been quoted, messaged, or responded to, it says I have zero notifications by default.

@jagcivtec: I agree, I thought GTA 5 was gonna be a masterpiece too, but the final product felt so dumbed down I could barely enjoy it. On the bright side, at least the combat in MGSV looks good and immersive; no cheap screen flashes or hit markers to let you know the target is dead(*COUGH GTA V*), just good old fashioned blood spraying out of the enemy, followed by the enemy falling to the ground and no longer moving. l hope they don't water down MGSV last minute for all the Madden/COD gamers.
GTA 4 and it's expansions, though only because the protagonists and the story/stories were all better than V. I also like IV for the fact that the entire game world doesn't flash with a little x every time you kill someone(which I really hated in GTAV, as it made gameplay feel weak). GTA5 has all the ingredients to beat GTA4(better map, graphics, more fluid controls), but V feels like it wasn't finished. The story of V was too short, and simple options, like to turn off cinematic score, flashing kill indicators and Xhit markers, feel missing from V.
I feel like I would love this game, but I can't enjoy combat do to the entire game screen flashing for every kill I make. Is there any way to get rid of the flashing? The red X is kill indicator enough and that should be optional too.

GTA V was not hard, it was too easy and short(GTA 5 has 69 missions, GTA4 had over 90). The worst thing about GTA V is the kill indicators; the way the entire screen flashes with a little x to notify players of every kill they've made, making kills look censored and shootouts feel cheap(especially in story). GTAV has regenerating health and you can skip missions that are 'too hard for you', that's how dumbed down GTA5 is. GTA 4 had a much better story that really grabbed me and kept me enthralled for months. GTA 5 had a lot of potential to be better than IV, and before I even played V, I was sure it would blow IV out of the water... I'm sad to say, GTA IV is still better.
@VirtualAntics: the 'selfie' feature in gta 5 was useless. GTA 5 could of been much better if it focused more on story and gameplay, and less on BS like cell phones. You are not a GTA fan, go away. I hope R* stops making idiotic games like GTA 5, for causal gamer/hashtag/cell phone zombies, and they make the next GTA for the fans
The story mode was not good either, it was going somewhere at first , but ended lackluster. The Story was incredibly short for a full length GTA game, and the characters are never thoroughly developed. After experiencing my first shootout in this game's opening sequence, seeing the screen annoyingly strobe flash for every kill, with a little x to show where every fatal shot was landed, the immersion during combat in this game was ruined right off the bat. I was very shocked to see no options to turn off the kill markers. I am now back to playing GTA3, Vice City, VC stories, and GTA 4, I am having a much better time with these games than GTA5.
If there was an option to turn them off, I could care less. Seeing the entire game strobe flash, with a little x over every enemy you fatally shoot, absolutely destroys immersion in the story mode. Gunning down multiple foes at once gives me seizures and severe headaches. My friends who are not even epileptic(yes laugh at me hahah I have seizures), say the kill indicators make Shotgun and sniper kills feel and look especially cheap with the strobe flash and they ruin immersion in combat. Is there anyone else bothered by this? Any time I bring it up I get loads of hate from hype zombies(cod gamers and casual gta fans who love gta 5).
