Hands down GTA 5, but the two are very different games and comparing them doesn't make a whole lotta sense.

Probably GTA V, once it comes to PC, mainly because it hooks up the vehicles' radio to my MP3 library and I can happily spend hours driving around the landscape while basking in my own great taste. The Jackdaw and the horses don't do that: for some reason; quite an oversight on Ubisoft's part.

However, since Rockstar is still pretending they aren't going to release a PC version of GTA V, I'll buy the least coy of the two.

Let's stop this before it turns horribly sour.

Silver has a point. We aren't necessarily tapping into every little bit of pirate culture. You won't see rape in the game and the prostitutes are apparently modestly dressed compared to a woman with bursting "assets" on an official game poster. I know some conservative friends (not that Silver is) and they would be appalled by blatant sex marketing like this. AC doesn't rub it in your face or release an official game poster that are blatantly selling sex, isn't. At this point, Silver is exaggerating a bit cause the marketing isn't necessarily representative of the devs' intentions, so this might be a bit impulsive on her side. You decide if you like the game or not. The marketing doesn't mean that only those who like women in bikinis are going to enjoy it.

silvermercy

I was previously interested actually because all my male friends were raving about it. (I know the bikini is tame. That wasn't my point).

The second one shows pirate culture.

Ah I knew my friend pirate would pull that famous prostitute picture. :) I think GTAV is actually worse now. (At least AC marketing toned it down with subsequent trailers and even explained this scene was for showing pirate culture in general, not Edward. And I'm now fine with it since they managed to address this issue).

Marketing rarely represents a game in its true fashion. During AC3's marketing campaign, there were frequent depictions of redcoats being mutilated (compared to GTA's one picture), some people in the UK moaned about it, but did it stop them from buying the game? No.

OH GOD THE TEDIUM

Hi Silvermercy. Got to page 14 and had to cut in.

On the marketing - sure, people are kind of right that the bikini babe is wearing everyday attire for the shores of LA, but you're also right that Rockstar wouldn't feature her in the publicity if not to draw eyes. Plus she's almost certainly not even in the game. However, at least the really major ads don't feature her and do actually focus on the game's playable characters. Who are all men! Just like in major AC games. Oh, it's swings and roundabouts everywhere, it really is.

As for what IS in the game: strip clubs are in the game and, just like GTA IV, GTA V will almost certainly make you go to a strip club for at least one mission. It will definitely cause offence to you, because GTA's idea of sophistication is to take the piss out of everyone and everything. And to be honest, that can be pretty wearing, even for a fan. I love the games, but I often feel like they're not aimed at me either. I cringe quite a bit. They're aimed at the kind of person who puts into action the opinions of the makers of South Park as their world view. They're aimed at the kind of person who says, "DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOU VOTE FOR, THE GOVERNMENT ALWAYS GETS IN, LOLOLOLOL" rather than have the guts to admit they couldn't be bothered to understand what was going on or to get off their lazy arse and vote.

The depiction of homosexuality was pretty awful in GTA IV, but they did improve that to a certain extent in The Ballad Of Gay Tony (not great, but better). Plus, in their favour, they stuck to their guns with that title despite so many bro customers refusing to buy a game with "Gay" in the title. GTA IV's EFLC edition is the only game I can think of that has full-frontal male nudity, so... I don't know... yay?

BOTTOM LINE: YOU'D HATE IT. YOUR INSTINCTS ARE CORRECT. LET'S NOT, ANYMORE. :P

AC4. AC has way more replay for me.

projectpat06
08-28-2013, 07:32 PM
Apples to Oranges.

For me, despite both being open world games, the fun of the games come from different mechanics.

I will say I hope GTA V has more mechanics from Red Dead Redemption than GTA 4. 4's driving mechanics were subpar and there wasn't much to do outside. I mostly excited to see how alive they make the GTA V world with the random events mechanic. The driving, shooting, flying thing, We've already experienced in several games.

As for AC4, like AC3, I'm mostly excited for this game because of the setting and all the added mechanics. If it was just another assassin game with nothing new, I'd probably grab it when it dropped price. The fact that it's an open world pirate game with all the skills and freedom of an assassin makes me more excited for this game than anything this fall.

Now does that mean AC4 will be better than GTA V in terms of quality, that's doubtful given Rockstar's previous masterpieces, but I hope it finally reaches close to that same quality.

What was the idea of asking such a question on a forum about AC...

Witcher 3 vs Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag :rolleyes:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Also I can't help but prefer AC4 to GTA... I really have never been a fan of GTA gameplay and story only goes so far...

Didn't they say it does have locational damage? Though not as sophisticated as GTA due to the euphoria physics

Did I miss the argument about the bikini girl and marketing?

The bikini girl seems more like she's representing the setting (Los Santos, the land of beaches and vanity) than pointless sexual advertising

Just stop. Just...stop. We worked hard to get rid of that argument. Don't come in and try to rejuvenate it. Yes, you missed the argument. Don't bring it up again.

Actualy this may be a prequel.

In files it says Johnny was in LS in 2004 prior to The Lost and Damned so GTA V may take before GTA IV in the timeline.

Well lets say he is not getting along with Trevor.
If you rewatch the second GTA V trailer closely you will see what i mean.

The first one is OBVIOUSLY marketed to a male audience (or lesbians...)
The second one shows pirate culture.

Ah I knew my friend pirate would pull that famous prostitute picture. :) I think GTAV is actually worse now. (At least AC marketing toned it down with subsequent trailers and even explained this scene was for showing pirate culture in general, not Edward. And I'm now fine with it since they managed to address this issue).


IMO...GTA is a satirical reflection of the current society. A blonde in a bikini taking a selfie....I'd say its spot on. Sex, drugs, violence, satire, fast money, fast cars, outrageous freedom....thats pretty much GTA....and lets take a look at the cover:

http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/2409485/gta-5-cover-full_900.jpg


The cover art is a collage of all that


While the bikini girl might come off as a blatant ploy to target team testosterone.....I'd say that its a slice of what GTA is about.

I can certainly see WHY you may not like it, fair enough IMO....but don't you think you're being too dismissive of the game and its "marketing" without analysing the context and history of the franchise?

Either way...I'm playing GTAV...tits and all

I think the soundtrack rather scotches that rumour. Not only is it up to date with new material by many artists, they've done deals with some hiphop MCs to get tracks which will be heard first in the game (well... maybe on the hiphop blogs first, but no earlier than this month, anyway). I think some of the Flying Lotus tracks are brand new for the game too.

Well there are always recurring characters in GTA just look at the 3D series(from GTA3 to GTA VCS).From protagonists you have Claude and Toni in LC,Victor Vance and Tommy in VC and CJ and Claude in SA.Not to forget other characters like Phil Cassidy who was in 4 GTA games(GTA3,GTA VC,GTA LCS and GTA VCS)
