I'd like to see another Chinatown Wars like GTA for the Switch (and PC, PS, XB) which tries new things gameplay-wise. Too bad it didn't do so well on the NDS.

There are many people who love GTA:O on consoles and PC, and last gen consoles. They took on a games as a service and got huge return for it. They were one of the first to jump on it and maybe foresaw it from the RDR O and GT4:O. They kept a community really active amazing mods have come out, incredible numbers of youtube videos/streams with their game.

I don't know, I don't call that disappointing. Also RDR2 is the best western shooter rpg ever.

I'm guessing the majority of GTAO players wont even be aged to play the fucking thing.

I still can't get over the input lag. Holding out for a next gen release where hopefully it can be solved.
It’s the worst aspect of the game for me. A higher frame rate would help but most of it had to do with too ambitious animation transitions.

It's kinda bad that it was just one game, but the generation it's not over yet and I'm always on "take your time".

They do nice jobs, and I'm happy with it.

They must be hoping to get a PS4 version of GTA 6 out in time so they can have all those double dippers again. There's still a year and a bit left so could well be possible.

RDR2 was boring game. Good graphics, story and music, but bad controls and boring quest system

Kills the game for me.

Characters control like a tank. Also the game is almost entirely reliant on auto-aim and deadeye. Using this strong auto-aim and deadeye feels like cheats to me.

Plus points: Fantastic atmosphere and presentation but the game is let down by the fact that its not trying to be a game. Instead its trying to be a wild west simulator. Its fine to create a game that looks lifelike but I much dislike it when it plays like it too.

I like rdr2 but rarely find the motivation to play it now.. Don't think I've bothered with gta5 since I replaced my. Ps4 with the pro. I simply cannot be arsed waiting for the online component to load. Shit takes forever.

I’d imagine it’s entirely dependent on how much much you enjoyed RDR2
Agreed. That game is a MASTERPIECE. I dont even play games for the story, so I am rating it purely on gameplay and what you can do. That game is ridiculously incredible.

Gta online ... I blame gtao. It was great until heists. Then it overstayed it's welcome. I personally also think red dead redemption 2 suffered because of it, and also because of the lack of Leslie benz. It had its moments but it felt very weirdly paced and repetitive.

I hope they aren't complacent. It would be a shame to see Rockstar only doing gta every 10 years and cashing in on gtao until the next release.

XXXX had a great presentation but was a crappy game.
Basically applies to all games this gen. Not just Rockstar.
Even Nintendo has been suffering from this, and they are usually the "gameplay first" company.

I Liked RDR2, but the delay on the controller killed the game for me, i finished the game and i liked, but ill never play it again, the controls are horrible on XBOX, the input lag is simply too much.

Sorry about my english.

Hated GTA V's SP (and I still don't know what's Online about).

RDR2 is quite nice, but not that enjoyable to play.

Pretty disappointing gen
