Argh, accidentally clicked no...

Anyway.. yes it is.

The story in GTA 5 while missing gaps doesn't seem as random and all over the place like San Andreas.. gang banger, legit business owner, black ops, triad, casino heist... back to gang banger.

MP alone puts it over the top because SA had none

Well to be fair CJ was always a gang member from what his brother said about him in the beginning. And he was doing odd jobs to clock that paper, Nah Mean? That's how it is, scramblin for money unless your in with the mob or some organized crime syndicate. CJ was hustlin yo. Hustlin.

Not really, the problem with the games from this gen is they always feel like they are missing something, San Andreas didn't have points that just left you scratching your head and wondering why they added that or took it away from previous titles. GTA V is gorgeous, and has some of the best action set pieces of the series, but I found myself being confused by many design choices and by a general sense that what we got wasn't what the designers had in mind. I feel like more time in development would have helped a great deal. The story in particular seems to be missing a great deal of intended content, as it meanders and then ends with no build up.

There is a lot to do in the game, but it is all very shallow and so few activities outside the story have any real rewards. The flight school is a great example, I got all gold medals only to find there is zero reward, I mean learning to fly i good I guess but why go to all the trouble if it doesn't really do anything? Character stats make no noticeable difference in gameplay. There are a ton of locations in the game world that are begging to be used but are untouched in gameplay, like the casino, prison or military base. owning property is utterly worthless, as at best it takes 40 weeks to turn a profit or even worse you have to tow like 100 cars to make the impound lot make a profit, which i doubt anyone would ever want to do. I know it seems a bit nitpicky but the fact remains that some of the older games in the series have been out for over ten years yet the newer games still lack many of their features.

Personally I still prefer San Adreas because of all the fun side content/activities it has, although I do really enjoy V but even if I didn't it all just comes down to personal preference, obviously I could make some asinine comment about how any who prefers V more is "blinded by graphics" or something along those lines but if I did that I would come off as some annoying little brat who's probably too young to be playing these games in the first place.

I haven't beaten the game quite yet, so I can't really say, but I love GTA 5 so far, and San Andreas is one of my favorite games of all time. San Andreas felt like such a bigger map, much more expansive, and much more variety of scenery.

Going through the storyline of San Andreas, going through 3 major cities felt much more like an epic adventure, starting off in the ghetto of the city, moving towards a nicer city, then towards a bigger, nicer, and more expensive playground, then coming back home in full circle. I love the aspect of adventure. Adventure aside, there were plenty of things to do in SA. I still love playing it to this day.

So far with GTA V, I feel like it is simply a nicer looking and most polished version of GTA to date, with more content than the rest of the games so far (some one tell me, are there driving, motorcycle, and boat schools in GTA V? I know there's a flying school, but I would like to know if there's the rest as well). In GTA V, there are a lot more creative and innovative ways to going about finishing missions.

Please do us all a favor and shut your mouth until you have something less ignorant to say. Don't make assumptions that everyone who says no is blinded by nostalgia.
