Really can't wait for this game. Recently became the very happy owner of a new gaming rig sporting an FX 8350 processor and a GTX 770 GPU. What's more, been well jealous of my console owning mates and now looks as though GTA 5 will look better on my machine than on their consoles :) Tres happy

A near six-month wait yet, arghh... this is my most anticipated game for quite some time now.

I haven't paid attention to GTA since Vice City, but I am curious: Is the wait worth it? Do you generally get good performance, and graphical quality versus the console versions? I've seen some awesome mods for GTA4 that make it look like a brand new game.

As a PC gamer, I'm tired of being treated like an afterthought, and being expected to be happy with a port. They'll expect us to pay top-dollar for this less-than-new game; I think I'll save my $ for something designed for my platform.

So everyone knows how buggy the GTAIV port was - however, I read that V is based on the same engine that Max Payne 3 uses, (Rockstar Advanced Game Engine) which apparently was pretty good.

I don't think it will be worth a full $60 due to how long we've had to wait, but if it drops at like $40, I'll consider it. Once it hits a Steam Sale, then I'll most likely pick it up.

GTAIV uses RAGE, and was its first game I believe.

I think a lot of people have forgotten about the good Rockstar PC port, which was Max Payne 3. Yeah sure, people are still butthurt about GTA IV but that was a long time ago. Max Payne 3 and LA Noire proves otherwise. I'm sure Rockstar doesn't want the bad PR they will recieve if they screw up GTA V PC port, since the PCers are so vocal. Its going to be the same quality port as Max Payne 3 (I hope).

I'll wait a few years for Rockstar to fix the 5 million bugs I KNOW the PC version will have before I drop a dime on it. Then again, since it's been this long since GTA V got released to consoles, I would think Rockstar would at least have a solid release date for us. But it's Rockstar, and they take forever to do anything so, yeah.

What do you want Mikey? A 1 game a year release of COD, a 2 year a game release of Battlefield? Or do you want a POLISHED game worthy of Rockstar?

A polished game, obviously, but with Rockstars track record for GTA PC releases being always bug-ridden, I'm not really holding my breath. I will be pleasantly surprised if there are few bugs in the GTA V PC release, which I do in fact plan to buy. Maybe not on release day, but at some point after release, maybe a week or wto after all the pre-orders are dealt with and there isn't a order backlog a mile long, LOL!

What is the big allure for this game? It's sandbox you can do anything type of game.....pretty boring if you can do anything in a videogame.

I played (and reviewed it for another site) on the Xbox 360 when it first came out. It's true you can run around all day and night doing whatever you wish, but there's a pretty entertaining storyline that weaves through three switchable characters. It keeps you engaged, and you won't advance the storyline by just treating it as a sandbox.

Outside of sports titles, I'm not a fan of gamepad controls. Had I not been reviewing the game, I wouldn't have played it on the Xbox 360. For those holding out for the PC version, I think they're in for a treat, provided it's not buggy as hell.

The realism of the 3D graphics and the believability of the characters is beyond anything else I've seen. In fact, just to see something that takes place in the daylight is a pleasure. This tech is on track to replace Hollywood. The game itself doesn't mean much to me.

Uh, you just said it.

People like linear games with characters who are set in stone. Others like games that give them more room to do what they want to do within the constraints of the game.

If you don't like it, then oh well. Neither type of design philosophy is bad.

I like storylines. Something to pull it together. Linear seems to make that easier for some developers. However some like Fallout seem to be able to give you a sandbox and still keep it all part of a larger story rather than just hack and slash.

So, who is going to be dropping $60 for the full bug-fest console port experience on release day?

I think I got GTA 4 for five dollars on Steam. I can wait for this one, too.

You want to wait 5 years for it to be 5 dollars on steam? Go ahead and wait, you negative nancy

$5 for part V on steam you say, poetic at the very least.
