Here is the 5-minute long GTA V official gameplay video

Here is the 5-minute long GTA V official gameplay video Rockstar Games has released a 5-minute long gameplay video for their upcoming blockbuster, GTA V.
This is the first video to show off actual gameplay, as past teaser trailers have have mainly displayed cut scenes.

GTA V will feature three protagonists, each of which are already established in the world, unlike in past games where you really have to start from the bottom. The game allows you to control all the characters at any time you want and others move to "autopilot" until you switch back.

In the demo, you can see a few new features like the ability to go skydiving and play tennis, or even meditate if you choose to.

In this author's opinion, the game looks incredible.

Never really got into the GTA games, but this one looks amazingly fun. Might have to give it a go.

Looks good. I can't wait! I hate to be that guy, but I really hope it comes to the PC eventually.

Nope, you're not "that guy". There's a bunch of us who want the same.

With IV being a success on the PC, it would be a surprise if RS didn't have a PC release.

I'm looking forward to the PC release too...not just for the massive improvement in graphics you get going from a PS3 to a basic gaming PC, but also because I hate aiming with joysticks and the controls of joystick games are always crippled so aiming is slow even if you use a mouse adapter and turn up the speed to max. I'm still a little sore at Rockstar for failing to release Red Dead on PC.

If I use a mouse for aiming it always feels like cheating to me for some reason.


Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

I can't friggin wait!!! Unfortunately, I have to :( I refuse to buy consoles. So, I'll be waiting for the PC release. No... I'm not gonna pirate it! Grand Theft Auto is a PERFECT example of a game, that deserves return for the effort ;) And clearly a LOT of effort went into this.

Ha ha, I use my xbox controller on my PC. Best $50 I've ever spent on a controller :) A lot of games recognize it immediately. I don't own an xbox. Probably never will. I prefer PC gaming.

Though I must admit. Left 4 Dead is much more comfortable with mice/keyboard ;)

You're absolutely right. I meant not challenging enough and not "real" enough feeling.... something along those lines.

But yes, if I was in your position I would use a mouse too I suppose... in single player mode I have no trouble using a controller on PC... even on the hardest setting in games without controller support. Dumb perseverance I suppose.

Yup, and at this point I usually plug Xpadder for all the games and programs that don't have controller support... it's absolutely brilliant.

sorry omegaman i had to laugh.you own an xbox controller but no xbox.i actually use a program called motioninjoy for ps3 controller to use as xbox 360 controller (on pc) and i do own a ps3.also i have heard of xbox 360 controller going for as little as $10 on ebay.

@jemborg first person shooters feel like cheating using a mouse to aim its a lot easier than using a controller.

i just hope if the gta comes to pc it wont have the same issues as the last 1.

@voyager people in real life are gay some of them I dont see why its an issue in a videogame.some straight criminals even turn gay while in prison.

I've had the controller for quite some time. I don't recall seeing it much cheaper then I got it at the time :p I used "xinputemu3" an xbox controller emulator once upon a time.

What issues did GTA IV have? I recall when it was new, having install problems, regarding securom, and .NET framework. Other than that, it was pretty smooth sailing after that. Mmmm, I also recall Games for windows live having sign in problems. Not a GTA problem though :S

At launch.

That issue was addressed, though.

At launch the PS3 version hardly worked at all on my system...and even today there are some problems (sniper rifle is still useless). I waited a couple weeks to get the PC version and by then it was already working good...and I could enjoy sitting on top of sky scrapers with my rifle.

As for the added challenge of using a gamepad for aiming, you can have it. Difficulty created by the controls kills the immersion for me.

BTW...if someone from Rockstar happens upon this...PLEASE REMOVE THE QUICKTIME EVENTS THAT I KNOW YOU ALREADY PUT IN BECAUSE EVERYONE DOES THAT STUPID CRAP AND IT HAS NEVER MADE A GAME BETTER.

"Immersion" that's it! It's absolutely the opposite for me, a mouse just feels completely unnatural. I just don't use guns irl like that... there's no sense of heft to the weapon with mouse aiming.

I use a mousepad on a 15 degree angle, and I use a logitech g mouse with the weights at maximum weight. Obviously it is nothing like holding my 1911...but moving my whole hand in the direction I want to point is a lot closer than holding one thumb in that direction for a period of time. That said, I have no desire to use a 2 direction treadmill for movement...so there comes a time when comfort is more important than immersion.
