GTA V has some of the worst texture pop-out I've ever seen. There are parts where I'll drive across an intersection and the road and all the buildings around it will lose all their texture and visuals.
yet gta v TRIES to be dramatic and TRIES to get you emotionally invested.
in the end though, i still have to keep in mind that this is a GTA game and not a Mass Effect or Metal Gear Solid game.
Exactly. While I haven't gotten very far into GTA V yet (just past the Jewel Heist), I noticed the mission where Michael goes biking with Jimmy and takes his daughter off the ship tries so hard to make you feel sympathy for Michael and his inability to bond with his kids. It's cheesy and dumb.
