I really enjoyed the game, but it didn't leave much of a lasting impression on me. Same goes for the other games in the series. Definitely a great 40 hours though. Doubt I will ever go back and play much more of it. Not much replayability for me personally.

I thought it would be GotY, and it is, but after playing it, I'm not sure that it is as good as I thought it would be.

I loved the game, but I thought it was (the SP anyway) shorter than I was expecting it to be. I beat V in less than two weeks, where it took me at least a month to beat the other GTA's. They just seemed longer to me.

Also, the lack of money-making opportunities hurts the game as well. The stock market stuff should be optional, but it is pretty much mandatory if you want to make any real money in the game. And the number of missions you do that you don't get paid for is ridiculous to me.

There's also the fact that I completely HATE one of the characters (Trevor). And then there's the whole mess with the Online section of the game. It seems ok now but some of us are more than a week behind other players on it because we simply couldn't access it while others could. It can be a bit much when all you have is a pistol and the guy who is chasing you has an assault rifle...

I'd still rate the game a 9/10 overall, but I have to say for me anyway that part of the reason I'd still call it my GotY is there simply wasn't a whole lot of other stuff out there that I was interested in. Only games I've bought this year are GTA and SR4. I might buy Diablo 3 as well at some point, but I don't think its going to unseat GTA as my GotY. GTA is almost winning by default for me rather than because it stole the show on its own merits.

And to think...people laughed at me when I said MS could out-EA EA any day of the week.
Who's laughing now, *****es???

It's my runner up. After playing The Last of Us though, I knew it had no chance at the top spot.

It's got to be close, but for me with GTA V there's been too many occasions where I've thought 'This would be so much better if....'

I thought it would be nailed on to be GOTY, but there seems to be a lot of stuff missing that means it's just not as fun as it could be. But like I said, in spite of that, it's still got to be close.

I think it's a 9/10 game, with nearly 900 people working on the game we kinda expected this. The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider, Bioshock, and GTA V, Rayman Legends are all the goty in my book.

Nope, it's not even my game of the month.
#9Banana_ManaPosted 10/8/2013 11:23:22 PM
No...

I loved the single player, but the online has caused me far too many headaches... It now crashes my Xbox after 20 minutes or so...

'Tis rather annoying.
