    I grew up with GTA1, so to me the entire series is a silly kill-em-all type game. But kids now are growing up with near real-quality gaming experiences. So, differentiating between reality and game is more difficult.

    I'm looking forward to GTA V personally, but it has me worried a little.
    You can physically manipulate how your vehicles behaves during air time, so, no it's not to realistic. It's a good balance in my eyes.

    What are you waiting for? Go buy it, NOW. Go on, NOW I say!

    GTA:IV had put me off, but I'm very pleased to say (from what little I've played) it's a lot closer to Red Dead Redemption than GTA:IV. In terms of the car physics (remains my biggest gripe with these games) it just means I have to ignore the racing side missions.

    Not by a very wide margin! Usual GTA humour and cartoonesque character animations. Personally, I'd like reality to more like the game

    In terms of 3D open world graphics fedlity, as a gamer I've waited a long time for this. I remember playing Flashback on the Amiga and being captivated by the fluid character animation and the openness of the space port. It's taken a long time for games to get to this point where we have such a huge open playfied. I'd say it's only really been the past 2-3 years that these games have matured to this level. Looks good for Watch_Dogs and AC:IV next gen.

    One thing that is especially notible in GTA:V is how fluid the transition is between cut scenes and games. They are now one and the same - indestinguishable. In fact I've been coming out of cut scenes not realising I had to start controlling the character

    I've finally found a genre (other than Civilization) that I can happily waste hours of my life playing (read "exploring").

    I had a quick go on my brothers yesterday. Why is so difficult to control aircraft?

    I was thrilled to see my copy arrive yesterday and must have put in about 4-5 hours of gameplay, mostly doing missions, but the occasional bout of randomness involved.

    One thing I am really impressed with is the AI of NPCs.. The police seem a LOT more intelligent, and random folks on the street too.. I had just finished a mission and was heading back to find a car near the pier when some random guy started shouting at me, I hadn't realised at this point that you can interact with anyone using the action button (right D-pad on PS3), so after talking back to him, he pushed me away, then I laid him out cold in one punch.

    That truly made my whole experience on the game worthwhile so far. I think i'm in love.

    Hey! Cousin! Let's go bowling!

    I am in a similar position. I bought my 360 for GTA4 and between the goddamn mobile phone and the car physics that made you drive like your Grandpa I bounced off completely.

    Looking at the performance woes people are talking about, though, reckon I'll wait until the PC version is released, seeing as how my computer is hooked up to a big telly anyway (as well as a normal monitor, I'm not mad). My shiny new GTX680 should munch through it

    I've had no performance issues at all! :P Had 3 hours of lovely smooth, 720p game play on my 32" TV. Hehe Looking forward to going back to get stuck into again! :P

    If I'm going to get it, it'd be the PC version.

    I'm not having part of my game being withheld because Microsoft are greedy bar stewards. [Xbox is peer-to-peer... it costs them nothing.]

    Because planes are hard.

    Doesn't matter. It isn't 18.

    [Also, Peggle said "a little year 7". Not a 7 year old. ]

    thats what I get for skim reading

    The parents should be taken away and sent on parenting courses. It does annoy me though as its videos like this the Daily Mail/No violent games brigade will use as a reason why this game should be banned.

    Pah! Peer pressure. If my nephews facebook comments are anything to go by I doubt there's a kid left in school who hasn't already played it.

    That said, I'm sure the parents don't realise what sort of content is in this particular game...
