THIS THREAD IS THE SPOILER THREAD FOR GTA V. ALL SPOILERS ARE UNMARKED. IF YOU DON'T WANNA GET SPOILED, FUCK OFF!



So. Lotta spoilers in the other thread. Figured, why not make a separate thread where people can discuss the story, events, and so on without fear of accidentally spoiling somebody else.

I myself have only just completed the third heist for the FIB scumbags, so I'm staying out of this thread.

Anyways, have fun!

Teaming up is the only right option. SUCH a great end mission and then it branches in to those assassinations which are so satisfying.

I Youtubed the mission where you kill Mike or Trevor and they both look shit. I feel sorry for anyone that picks those options.

Will anyone be doing the two bad endings instead of the one good ending?

Don't know why anyone would choose the two bad ones tbh,

Can you even finish the left over missions and side quests after that?

EDIT: on a random encounter, there is this rich banker trying to catch a ride to the airport for Liberty City. He will tip you only $100 but will say right after to invest stock in a business immediatly. The payout will be about 30 percent in return. I invested all my millions that I had, made about 5 million in less than a day.

Not really spoilerish, but I figured some people might complain so I put it here: After the fistfight mission with the Arab car seller, if you switch to Franklin and follow Michael for a while, this will happen:

That choice of endings is significantly worse than GTA IV's. Heck, all of the endings are bad.

Either:

- You kill Michael as Franklin. During this mission, Michael is enthusing about how he has turned his life around. And it's so out of character that Franklin becomes a cold assassin.

- Killing Trevor is better. Franklin and Michael team up to kill him. The dialogue seems more appropriate, and it's the ending that feels most like a conclusion to the story.

- Killing everyone else is such bullshit. All of a sudden, the major enemies within the game become people you can kill. It's so weak.


And, as I said before, half of the heists are shit. The good ones are:

- The jewellry store robbery.

- The government building robbery (where you can dress as a janitor, or parachute in).

- The gold heist.

There others are rubbish.

- Trevor's heist is hardly one. You don't gain anything, and Plan A and Plan B feel like two different missions rather than different approaches. Actually, Trevor's heist feels like another mission. You don't hire a crew, for instance.

- The one where you tip over a truck is pitiful. Less of a heist than a giant shootout. And you don't get to hire anyone. Again, it feels like a mission.

- The one where you rob the smaller bank, again, lacks the choice heists should have offered. No alternative approach. You get to hire a single gunman. Instead of procuring vehicles as part of a heist set-up, they're just there. Instead of acquiring bomb suits, you just have them. And, again, you don't get to keep much of the money.

Agreed on everything. The truck one is especially disappointing, given it's a homage to the amazing Heat opener.

I loved the missions, but I wish there were more heists and, importantly, better ones.

Interesting that you can kill Michael or Trevor. I've chosen the deathwish, so everyone lives. Credits are rolling right now.

To be honest i would have liked the option to kill Franklin. He was the absolutely weakest character. I've chosen deathwish and hoped Franklin would die, just because both Michael and Trevor are so much more developed, character wise.

So I accidentally picked "Kill trevor" and was extremely disappointed. Not only did I not want to kill Trevor, but the mission wasn't great at all. The WORST part is, after the credits rolled, I couldn't play as Trevor anymore and there were some side missions I still hadn't done that are now gone. There is absolutely no way to access these missions, even through the replay missions menu. The last custom save that I had made was days ago, I am seriously considering going all the way back and doing it over again, because right now I am bummed. I played the "death wish" mission through the replay menu and it was brilliant, this should be the only option as I am now regretting not paying attention when pressing buttons on my cell phone.

What the fuck? That's fucked up. Especially because Kotaku wrote that you could finish every sidemission AFTER completing the story. I feel for you dude :(

Floyd and his GF, man that scene was terrible, I actually felt horrible there and only there, everything else Trevor did, didn't compare. They were actually normal people (as normal as it is in GTA), not criminals or gangsters. And right after on the car, Trevor tells Wade how they met, turns out he actually killed his friends too back then! Then he goes into the club and kills the manager there too. All of them back to back felt really creepy.

the whole game felt light hearted and fun throughout, which was a nice change for me coming off more solemn games like the last of us and brothers this year.

the on-off camaraderie and comedy of the trio was enjoyable to watch but the endings were kind of a let down, especially the first 2. they didnt have as huge an impact it seemed they were aiming for.
maybe it was just me but i found it hard to relate to these guys at times. overall though it was a highly entertaining ride

i probably would have been more upset if something had happened to lamar, i fucking loved that guy.

spot on, its a bummer as the heists were definitely where the game was at its best. really hope there is some DLC centered around more jobs, game is crying out for more quality heists.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get the whole body armor suit that you use for that mission?

And is it possible to get the car that has a gun attached to it, along with the spikes?

Option C was the best. It felt cathartic finally killing all these assholes in the game who pushed you around so much.

And yeah, Trevor was such an interesting character. Veering from creepy/deranged like in the death of Floyd to hilariously loveable, like with Patricia.

Michael turned out to be my favourite character. My dream ending is that after they killed off all the antagonists, Michael and Solomon went into business together, and everyone gets kind of a happy ending and Michael and Trevor finally mend their relationship... sorta. But yeah, it wasn't really prettily wrapped up after the Brad revelations. Felt like we didn't get closure, but it was appropriate. They're stuck together in this life... I sorta get it. Haha.

Yes I agree about the ending, I was gleeful when I realised what was about to happen. We get to kill all these cunts? OH YES :D was giggling my head off killing Steve with a grenade launcher. So impersonal. Fuck him!

As to the characters endings, you're not far off about Michael, when I switched to him in the post-game he was at the studio giving Jimmy a tour and talking about how happy her was. Then I killed everyone which fucked the film company stock. I bought loads, hope it bounces back soon.

there was a bit more closure for Mikey and T when I went out drinking with Trevor in the post game. Mike straight up apologised for what had gone down, T thought about it for a minute, thanked him and accepted the apology, I thought it was quite sweet. I wish I had hung with the characters more during the main game, I get the impression there's a lot of extra dialogue in the friend activities.

I think Trevor is the best character in the game, in term of writing and voice actor. But the character is also inconsistent. Sometimes he is way too charming (channeling Jack Nicolson) compare to his usual creepy psychotic side.

Also the endings are pretty weak yeak. Also Villains too, weak.

After I beat the game with Option C, I hung out with Trevor as Franklin to go play darts (for 100%) and Franklin asks why Trevor never killed Michael. It's short but in case you want to do it yourself I'll spoiler it Because Michael had kids, he still kinda liked him, but hates him but really he hated everyone else so much more, so Mike is lucky.

I think the last heist you mentioned is my personal favourite in the game, it was just utter insanity in a way that you completely didn't imagine would happen, since the purpose of the military hardware was kept secret until the moment it was unveiled when things just went bonkers.

Killing Trevor probably makes the most sense seeing how volatile he is but I had to pick the C option since I did like all the characters for their good and bad parts. Plus I can still walk around with all 3 and do their respective side missions.

Yeah I was very disappointed in it. After all the shit they put these guys through, it was that easy to just kill these guys. Makes no sense. Same with the Chinese gang that ties up Michael. There were no repercussions, unless I missed something. Honestly for me the story falls a parts after rescuing Michael.
