HTP GTA5 by jollyjack HTP GTA5 by jollyjack
I do not understand why this game has been put on a pedestal. It shouldn't even be placed in a position where it can see a pedestal.

Played the shit out of Saints Row 4. Then when my friends bought a PS4 and GTA5 I played it remembered why I stopped playing GTA and picked Saints Row originally and then promptly went back to Saints Row 4 without looking back.

I'll admit, often I don't see eye to eye with you JollyJack, but I will agree with you in that GTA is an over hyped pile of turd that is completely undeserving of the praise it got.

GTA V is fine, it's the stupid 12 year olds who hyped it up to godlike proportions. Just take a look at GTAForums, even they hate the fact the game was hyped up to the extent that it did. In reality, the game is great but honestly, NO GAME would live up to that amount of hype.

I agree with most of this. I've been playing GTA5 lately, not bad, but frankly I prefer Saints' Row 4.
Keetl96 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2014
Yeah, that pretty much sums up Rockstar's output of late: Not bad, but not fit to shine Saints' Row's shoes.

They were to busy whining about the massive pile of glitches and exploits to worry about this "actual  game content" you speak of. XD

My brothers love it... But they're asshat wannabe criminals who largely refuse to play anything that's not GTA.

God, yes. I was all up about planning my own heists and making sure everything worked together like a well-oiled machine, but ended up being railroaded.

I actually agree with this. 
SniperMSG90 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2014
Sadly I'm finding that the GTA games are focusing more lately on 'realism' than fun these days. In the words of Yahtzee: "Where's my f@king jet pack?" Fortunately Saints Row 3-4 and Sleeping Dogs more than managed to make up for it.

*sigh* I hate having to agree....but yeah. This was VERY disapointing. SO much potential for awesome, and I DID have a lot of fun with it....but just...doesn't deliver.

I will agree the game-play itself is very dry, but the rendering and detail in the world itself is amazing.
the openness, and exportability of the world is also quite fun- but as far as a storyline this is not that great of  a game.
SAMASzero Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014
I find it amusing when people talk about other players being horrible in GTA Online.

It's GRAND THEFT AUTO. Half of what you DO in the games is to be a gigantic prick to everybody that isn't you. You didn't think that once other players entered the equation that would *stop*, did you?
russetwolf13 Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
That probably relates to there being nothing but being a dick to other people in the multiplayer.

I'm still wondering why there's aren't fucking heists in the multiplayer! WHY WOULD YOU NOT HAVE THAT?

That sure is a very "Yahtzee" way of putting it, if i do say so myself. Plus that and you've got a point.

I actually love the game but there are detraction in it. For example, the grading system in between missions is bullcrap because you can't see the requirements, you die WAY too easily under gun fire which feels like it's forcing you to pick up some armor, and it's focus on Trail and Error even in the most basic of missions is pretty annoying. I do agree with you but I'd hardly call it "unplayable". It is a GTA game so if it's not your cup of tea stay away from it.
jd1060 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2013
I had a boat load of fun for weeks after it released, I even earned the 100% achievement. I found the aim scheme a little wonky but they vastly improved driving. As for the multiplayer... yeah that first week was horrendous. Now it's smooth and fun, but damn it was hair pulling with all the glitches. I think the recognition the game had was well earned.
Bendo244 Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's good that you're not here to argue with me. I found all the things you said spot on I'm not going to act like this games is a holy grail it does have flaws but it's a damn good game that deserves the praise it gets.
Dimensionsatire Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2013
I watched a walkthrough of this game, so glad I didn't buy it. I've never seen a game where I wanted to murder the main characters more than the people you're killing. I had to stop after a few Trevor missions, it's just...painful to watch.

Saluting you, my good chap.

i have always fut your game reviews higher than others.

You should consider making a living on it.

Personally could mever get to like it cause the driving in the game, plus it's impossible to aim the attack chopper in the forth.
Yojulord Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013
LOL I liked #7.    

Just out of curiosity have you ever posted one of these comics for a game that you really loved?  Not that bagging on bad games isn't fun but I think you'd be just as humorous going on about a game that you found fun.

A couple of them, in fact. You can see all of the HTPs on

Sounds exactly like a game to avoid for me :D Good to know, thanks! didnt even play GTAIV, because what i saw at a friends place wasnt what i like at all. Man i miss Vice City.... a bit to easy but it was perfect during it time :D
SatansBestBuddy666 Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013

So I take it you didn't like it much?

I haven't played it myself and probably won't until it's dropped to like ten bucks, a decision I made a long time ago because holy fuck was GTA IV a mess.

That and I got my fill of bank heist missions in the Sly series, which did the concept justice several times over, so all that really interests me in GTA V is the open world and there are SO MANY games that do that now, but with fun gameplay at the same time! We can have our cake and eat it, and the cake is called Just Cause 2, and eating it means attaching a jeep to a jet, taking off in the jet to get in the jeep, and then detaching from the jet and falling while trying to drive the jeep onto the mountain without exploding! (which can work if you angle it juuuuuust right and try it like a dozen times or so, each failure ending in just more explosions and a greater sense of determination)

Thanks for that comment. new game for the todo list :D

Me neither. But I've never really been into Grand Theft Auto.

And here is me, sitting and wondering.

I mean, I played gtaIV, I read the HTP you did back then and could totally understand why people where disappointed. But hey, I liked the game and even took the time to master the, admittedly piss-poor, handling.

Then along came Grand Theft Auto V(five) and I thought "hey, they took the critisism too theyr hearts. They made vehicles controlable again. They ditched the annoying social aspect but kept an optional possibility to hang out with other characters outside of missions. And they replaced the moody atmosphere and dark story with sunny Los Santos and characters that bring up memories of homocidal maniac Tommy Vercetti."

And now I‘m wondering: did I actually play an other game than you did? Or did you want the game to be bad? I for my part had four enjoyable weeks in new San Andreas. Much of this time I just had fun just riding a dirtbike over the hills. Why? Just because you can!

If you people are doubting this, keep in mind getting masks, tools and a getaway car are at one point labeled as separate missions.
jollyjack Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013

I got the masks as Trevor.....and then in the cut scene, he seemed surprised at the choice.


TigerDude51087 Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013
is it bad that with all these big name games coming out, I usually just watch playthroughs of them as opposed to buying them?
BlutigeHandPlus1 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013  Hobbyist
no man thats the way to go. they are normally overprized and story can be so shitty its not worth it. better take a look at it befor or instead of buying ;)
