Thought I’d start a thread for this, because even if it has been discussed in other threads, it’s a pretty big deal.
Pretty shitty way to find out though, this has been such a long time coming it’s basically become a bigger deal that some royal funeral or something.
I’ve played all of the GTA games over the years. Used to play GTA 2 multiplayer at uni and was pretty handy at it. Crazy to think how long it’s been since GTA V, even the memes about GTA VI were getting stale.
Are you excited FOR GTA VI?
Very much so!
Not at all!
Discussed in the Gaming 2022 thread from this post.
Thought GTA V was a really great world, and that is was absolutely miraculous that it ran on PS3/360, but the story was quite weak and difficult to follow when it was constantly adding new characters. Thought the humour was quite poor too. RDR2 was absolutely incredible though, really loved the light RPG mechanics, being able to greet/antagonize people, all the effort that went into the voice acting, and the main story was good. Hopefully they learn from the best bits of that
“Grand Theft Auto VI, will include a playable female protagonist for the first time, according to people familiar with the game. The woman, who is Latina, will be one of a pair of leading characters in a story influenced by the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde, the people said. Developers are also being cautious not to “punch down” by making jokes about marginalized groups, the people said, in contrast to previous games.”
Sounds genuinely positive. Bound to spark an angry backlash from the very worst people but that’s a good sign you’re heading in the right direction.
