So like, I used to love Grand Theft Auto as a teenager and stuff. So like, recently I downloaded GTA San Andreas on PSN and played it, and realized that at the core, the game itself isn't very good. At all. And it made me realize just how overrated GTA is. Like, seriously, the gameplay mechanics comes down to auto-aim shooting people, carpooling missions, making sure people don't die, retrieving this and that, and so forth. Furthermore the story is so ridiculous, like, I don't mind it doesn't take itself seriously. But seriously, at the core I simply don't enjoy the games anymore. I mean, all I do is run around and shoot people, drive cars...and that's it. It's like no one ever talks about GTA's story, no, they talk about how fun going on a rampage is. Like, seriously. Most people I know don't even complete the missions in GTA, they just go on rampages and play the mini-games in the game. That and the AI is downright terrible at times. Like, really, really bad.
It's like every GTA game is the same, ludicrous story and joke characters, auto-aim, carpool missions, rescue missions, assault missions, car jacking, etc. Like, it just gets boring after awhile. It's like, you just run around doing random shit the entire game that doesn't make any sense story-wise and what's worse is that most of the shit isn't even funny. Like, Grand Theft Auto is so overrated playing San Andreas recently seriously dropped all my hype for GTA V. I really don't find the appeal in GTA anymore, sorry.
