    Assuming that is to imply that GTA does not did I play a weird parallel universe version of the franchise again?

    That flamebait :)
    GTA has always been superb, the main games at least, there's no denying that. SR3 was very good too though, a lot more fun than GTA IV, but GTA IV had much better things (story/characters/world) compared to SR3.
    They both had their good points, but if I had to pay choose between SR3 or GTA IV, I'd go GTA IV all the way.

    I do agree that I don't expect a lot of GTA V though, I'm just that not hyped. It's not on PC too (yet), which is just very sad. But even then, LoL is just hooking me more and more, I don't have time to enjoy any other game atm.
    Of course not, times have changed and massive competitors have emerged. There was no worthy competition back then, of course GTA 3 blew our minds, and of course you can't beat the 2D to 3D change.
    To expect GTA V to have the same impact, is just naive

    The game is not even out yet (well, at least here, not sure if it's out in other countries), and even so, it's still a GTA game. For some reason, while GTA tries to do a lot of things, that seems to overwhelm it and turn it into a mediocre game. All those mini-games, the big, open world, the shooting, the story, soundtrack, graphics... do you really think someone can master all those and put them together to create a perfect game? I think it's impossible. GTA V has way too many things to focus on, and, in order for all those to work together, quality needs to be evened between all of them. Therefore, it can't be the game of the generation. Also, are we talking about the PS360 generation or the PS41 gen? Because if it's the later, no way it can be, it just started. If it's the former, there are many other games that are far more perfect than GTA (one of them is The Last of Us). GTA may be the biggest, but it's not the best.

    You are ridiculous to make an assumption that GTA will be "the best game". This generation has barely STARTED. GTA isn't as special as everyone thinks, and I'm pretty sure GTA doesn't wildly innovate the industry of gaming. Once again, the press is paid off to overhype the series.

    Huh. I thought GTA would be on the next gen consoles. Nevermind then, I guess. :/

    I haven't played it, and don't plan on it unless it comes to the Xbox One eventually, so I can't say.

    There have been a lot of amazing games that came out this generation, so it's really hard to pin one as the "game of the generation."

    Skyrim, even with all of its glitches, is my game of this gen. I have never put as much time into a game as I did that one.

    It`s a good game. I started to play yesterday. But it's like an improved GTA IV (which is by the way the most overrated game of this generation). Nothing really new. It`s still a game that fans of the series will love, but a game of the year is for me a game that almost every gamer will love and wants to complete.
    It feels like playing the new FIFA or Madden after you skipped the games for 3-4 years.
    You see that they had high production costs, but only because something is the most expensie of all times, it will not autamatically be the best of all times.

    I would have to play it, but honestly, I would rather give The Walking Dead some veritable fistpumps as a contender, though this is tricky: as a game, it's a somewhat shoddy product and has a good number of issues, but as a narrative, it does an interesting play between player agency and player experience, which is what most people were captivated most by.

    It's certainly not The Last of Us (a generic game that is more a movie than a game, and whose gameplay is pretty lackluster and sometimes even buggy), or Bioshock Infinite (I've been forcing myself through this generic shooter ever since it came out... there have been maybe three awesome moments that the game was quick to snuff out, saying, Nah, it's not gonna be that great).

    Yeah, might agree. Although, League of Legends is fucking awesome too atm. It's PC only though.
    Skyrim on PC, nowadays, is just amazing too, just a COMPLETELY different game than it was when it was released. Lovely experience, lovely content really.

    Though I am expecting great things and if the videos are anything to go by and what early word I have read too is anything to go by they have upped the polish to a serious degree, however GTA 3 was something of a perfect storm in terms of timing.

    Also, or perhaps on the other hand, though I am not about to understate GTA3's importance it was fairly predictable for it to move into 3d (by the time of GTA 2 its still being in 2d was eyebrow raising) and it already had a fair fanbase thanks to the earlier titles (though no London for me).

    Either way I am not sure comparing it to GTA3 is all that apt on several levels.

    Having put a few days into this now and about 15 hours, I answered yes to this poll. Im not really a GTA fan but I did really like RDR. This however is absolutely amazing and how they have managed to wring out the performance this game shows out of an aging console is beyond me.

    Are there any performance issues like GTA IV has on the PS3?
