It’s not that easy to be the fastest-selling entertainment product ever existed grossing a Billion dollars over the course of 3 days. It is the second most selling video game of all time right after the mighty Minecraft. Making over $6 dollars in overall global revenue, no game has ever crossed that mark. Thanks to over 135 million copies shipped worldwide, it still is one of the most played games. If there were no Minecraft, GTA V would’ve been broke every record the gaming world has ever witnessed. Good for Rockstar. They really got rewarded for their efforts.
GTA V is mostly based on completing missions, driving through the huge open-world, and shooting down whoever you want. With a lot of side-activities that you can accomplish, the game will not force you to complete missions in order to progress. However, missions unlocks certain perks and let you earn some quick-cash. Hundreds of super-cars, almost-interactive NPCs, and a perfectly balanced environment makes it enjoyable even without spending a second on completing missions.
GTA V is coming with excellent gameplay mechanics, even though not life-like. But it is one of the best out there when considering how far games can go. The vehicle controls, the player’s movements, and the environmental variables, everything is enjoyable even for a person with no experience in playing games. There are imperfections all over the game which will not be noticeable unless you specifically go for it, but there is a limit for how much a game can be perfected to meet everyone’s expectations.
The game can be played from either a first-person or a third-person perspective. Both are designed in a way that makes the gameplay seamless irrespective of the mode you choose. It can be switched based on the convenience of the players. The third-person mode is the user-favorite because of its convenience to control vehicles, move characters, and travel around the world. The different camera modes also help in playing GTA V in a custom environment suitable for different people.
A great balance between reality and game. That’s the perfect explanation for the vehicle control in GTA 5. You won’t be getting life-like control on your supercars or motorcycles in the game. But it is designed in a way that makes the game more enjoyable. Defying the laws of physics by floating in the air close to a minute may not be the best thing to experience. However, ignoring such flaws would let you enjoy this amazing game, arguably with the best vehicle control out there in an open-world title.
Again, not the best physics out there. But enjoyable to its fullest. With traditional player controls, GTA has been following from their very first title, with enhancements to make it look more life-like, the player movements a quite good as well. Not as good as in the Red Dead Redemption 2 came later of course. But you won’t complain because of the level of details they have put into each step, punches, and getting in and out of vehicles.
