    Never been a fan of GTA at all so I'm going to have to say that I don't think it will be. Now like some others have already said, I think The Last of Us is worthy of being called #1. After that I think it could be quite easy to call GTA V the runner-up based on all the good things I'm seeing and hearing about it.

    Well im on the 360 version and none. Seems to run at a very steady 30 fps with only minor drops occasionally. There is almost zero pop in as well. I assume the mandatory HD install is responsible for that.

    <=See this guy. He belongs in my game of the Generation. This so-called 'Game of the generation' should have done everything right, with nothing wrong in it. GTA V doesn't even come close to that. In general, a perfect story cannot come from an open-world game, nor can the gameplay be perfect with so much content to test. So, yeah, Rockstar gave the press money, whoop-de-do.

    I think it is too early to say yes however, I am gonna go with a yes till maybe Watch Dogs comes out. While this generation offered so many quality titles but personally I found it to be the worst generation.

    Excellent news, I'm pretty sure I heard the PS3 version was the lead platform, so if the 360 version is running well, I can expect the same on the PS3.

    There's plenty to deny. GTA has always had a subpar story combined with an open world.
    That's about it.
    Saints Row came into the scene with a truckload of activities, a more interesting story (lets face it, Rockstar can't tell a story for shit). Do you know how many people complete the story for GTA?
    Of my friends and highschoolmates, I remember exactly 1 person who completed GTAIV out of around 12 people. The reason? Because paying hookers and then blowing them away with a shotgun was more satisfying than the dogshit story where Nico just yells "don't fuck with my family!" for 5 hours in his best Borat voice while you kill a bunch of people. I admit I never finished it, however I was very close. I'd say 90% through. 0 incentive to finish it I just did some online with a friend (which was fun) and then got rid of it because I knew i'd never play it again.
    So with Saints Row you have the exact same concept, employed in a grander fashion. Its like choosing a plain doughnut over the creme filled chocolate doughnut with sprinkles of pure awesome.

    Oh and story aside you could date Roman or shoot pigeons.
    Holy shit the intrigue. It didn't even have any interesting vehicles. Only thing I prefer on GTAIV was the online mode. Free Roam was DAMN fun with a friend. If SR had free-roam it'd win out in every aspect though.

    Everything you say from now on is disregarded just because you mentioned GTA and Saints Row in the same breathe ROFL. Saints Row is terrible utterly utterly terrible the 2nd one was OK the first was just a straight up clone of GTA and 3&4 are TRASH, comparing some GTA masterpieces like San Andreas, GTA3 to SR123? ANY SR? is BLASPHEMY

    noooope.
    Already have my candidates for 360, DS, PSP, and Wii. Don't own a PS3 but plan on getting one.
    GTA can be fun, no doubt but not game of the generation fun.

    Sales don't mean anything COD sells amazingly, what's your point? that there are alot of idiots out there? I agree, SR3&4 are trash.

    ... if a game is getting lots of sales and lots of praise, then clearly it isn't a bad game.

    LOL ok fine maybe you like SR for some reason...i don't know what you're example of a good game is but please please don't compare SR to GTA in any sense of the word. You make yourself look foolish, SR4 is literally a copy and paste of the same crazy shit that SR3 did with some new content that was supposed to be a DLC. GTA V is a 300 million dollar game with over 5 years of development and you on you're honest gaming opinion think SR4 compares?

    SRIV = same stuff with new content.
    GTAV = same stuff with new content.
    Gran Turismo = Same stuff with new content.
    Call of Duty = Same stuff with new content.

    What's your point?

    I think GTA V will be one of the ``main´´ games of these 2 consoles lifetimes, and looks like its the Maximum of both console´s power.
    I won´t lie, it Does looks like the Game of the year , the Last of Us will probably get the GOTY,though.....
    but for me, Rhythm Heaven Fever Still is the best game of the generation...

    Maybe if this game were released on Next Gen consoles, I would say yes. But from everything I have seen so far, its a couple steps up from GTA4, the intro sequence still show small bugs like graphics and objects popping into a scene seconds after it has started. I thought the reason for the install disc would sort of fix all of that.

    I wouldn't be saying that if I were you. Your arguments are extremely weak.

    feels like any other GTA so far.
