Grand Theft Auto V Trailers

Rockstar Games now offers three trailers (NSFW) from Grand Theft Auto V, offering cinematic tidbits for three characters in the upcoming sandbox action sequel: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, each of whom has their own flair. The clips conclude with a reminder that the console editions of the GTA5 are due on September 17th.

99% sure this is coming to PC, given that every other GTA (except for the handheld Chinatown one) has come to PC. The PC version will probably be announced a few months after the console versions are released, just like with GTA4.

That said, I'm not really that interested. GTA is stale. There have been many open-world action games since GTA3 and most of them have evolved the genre in various ways. Rockstar's focus seems to be on making their games as cinematic as possible, usually at the expense of gameplay. GTA4's horribly sluggish controls are a testament to that.

The writing on the GTA series is still miles beyond just about everything else in gaming, though.

That's arguable but even if we accept that as true, writing alone does not make a good game. If you're going to make a game, you should take advantage of the medium. Storytelling should be woven into the gameplay experience and not confined to cutscenes between missions.

It feels like Rockstar wants to be a movie studio rather than a game developer these days and it shows in how stale their games have become.

Having played RDR I completely disagree with you there. From the mundane to the really fucking awesome, read dead has you do it as gameplay.

I would agree though, with GTA it's much more limited.

Ex. Niko Bellic walks into law firm, cutscene, everything gets handled ( removing any hitman like gameplay possibility) and you just shoot the guy and escape through a linear escape route.
