There is no reason I can fathom to be against it. GTA V is more than capable of running fine on Switch as it was originally a 7th Gen game. The online will be crap, but the single-player is there.
GTA V could've been on Wii U, but Rockstar never put any games on the Wii U.

If you don't think the online will be good on the Switch, then what exactly is there for you to question here?

GTA5 has never been about GTA5 for a very long time now. It's all about GTA Online.

L.A. Noir says hi.

yes but did it even come out as a full game on switch or a must download 80% condition on it lol.

If you are trying to use partial download for the physical version as an equivalent to not getting the game at all, you are severely reaching.  And I say that as someone who frowns on the practice of partial downloaded games.

Nintendo is never getting a game from Rockstar North. (Period!). So stop wishing. It’s a historical fact. Other Rockstar games sure. But Rockstar North and Sandiego are out of the question.

Accept it and move on.

. Now I no that red dead, GTA, and all Rockstar games are developed in the same city and country. thanks!



I just don't care tbh. Rockstar games don't interest me at all.

It is an old game that does not justify any form of a download.

it is no different to those games where they sell you two games for the cost of way more than one and and one of them is just a download code

I am against it. GTA V is such a central piece for PS and Xbox consoles that not having the game on Switch is more beneficial than having it, just like the Switch hardware itself not being like PS and Xbox consoles is beneficial.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

What you said is a reason to be indifferent.  Your not buying the game for that reason is not a reason to be against the port coming at all, which is the topic of discussion.  Especially when many people buy games digitally on Switch because of how well it works portability wise.

I hate GTAV and would not bother with it, but that does not change the fact that popular games being added to the library of the Switch is only a positive for the device itself.  And with that I reiterate, there is no reason at all to be against the port coming over.  You said it yourself, it is an older game.  It should be relatively easy for RS to do with minimal effort on their part as well.

Multiple studios, including both RS North and San Diego worked on the game.  A simple google search would have told you that, no reason to be sarcastic when called out.

Why would anybody be against it? Maybe I'm not understanding the question...

If its gtaV or nothing, then yeah I'm with you. If we could instead use those resources to get a AAA game that was made in the last year or, crazy thought,  I simulrelease of a big upcoming game, id prefer the latter. Thats the 1 reason I could think of.

That wasn’t developed by rockstar north... it was developed by team Bondi...

No, Team Bondi started the development of the game, but later on Rockstar North and San Deigo became heavily involved as well.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Development_of_L.A._Noire

A simple google search would site both developers being involved from multiple sources.

Come on now, really?  Should we go around and claim all support studios are the ones that developed games now?  Monolith software develop Zelda games.  Great!  

congratulations, on a technicality you are correct.  However, a minimal support status of a game doesn’t really count in my book.  These auxiliary studios aren’t the ones that design the game or anything, they just pick up excess grunt work that needs to be done.
