    I thought GTA 4 was OK but one play through was enough.

    Me too. Just a version of Vice City with updated graphics details. Nothing more.

    I enjoyed San Andreas.

    If this is anything like it I may just have to get an XBOX 360 : /
    Besides I still have not played Red Dead Redemption and have fond memories of Red Dead Revolver.

    I grew up in Miami during the 80's. Vice City is the only one I really enjoyed.

    People had Tigers in their backyards and coke had more value then cash. I ain't joking. There was a LOT of crazy stuff back then. You could buy and get ANYTHING you wanted. Cops were powerless and the ones they hired to bring the crime down were crooked as hell. Ill never forget the day I walked out of a store with my mom and saw a cop doing lines off his dashboard right in front of the grocery store.

    I learned to never EVER ask were people bought anything or how they made their money.

    you must rate rockstar games much higher than I do. There's plenty to play, with the console port in full swing its only cheap devs who don't have a pc version at launch or very soon after.

    I think that GTA V's postergirl looks pretty generic.

    They are getting lazy. That's a photo they drew over. That's why it looks generic.

    I don't understand how some folks could be surprised that they aren't launching a PC version during initial launch... Unless you were born after 2007.
    AsRock says thanks.

    Exactly, they have delayed the PC release for every GTA game in recent memory. This is not a big surprise. I would say we'll see a PC version in 6-8 months after the initial launch, and I'll wait for it.

    Probably because all this non-sense about PC gaming being on the rise, and supposedly more developers paying attention to PC gaming because current consoles are approaching EOL. So far nothing is changing for PC gaming.

    This is why people need to pay attention to what is actually happening and not just blindly believe what some people (journalists, bloggers, etc.) say on the internet.

    Oh good...this is one turdy port I wouldn't even bother thinking of buying, regardless of how cheap it'll be later on with Steam's sales. If it's anything like their last GTA on the PC, it'll take hardware half a decade down the line from the release date to run this piece of shit at anywhere near acceptable level, to make up for the shitty unoptimized porting.

    GTA 4 looked good but the engine was a steaming pile of crap.

    so GTA 5 will also be a steaming pile.
