The worst part is that every car feels the exact same.

Is there a way to downgrade the cars?

I agree on the driving comments some are making. I have yet to play GTA V but after playing GTA IV for a few hours I just took cabs EVERYWHERE. And I really loved how in Saints Row IV you never really had to drive anywhere since you could run faster than any car and jump higher than any plane could. I loved Saints Row IV, one of the reasons I have not gotten GTA V quite yet.

I rather have some realism than complete arcade childish humor.

Don't they have updates that fix simple quirks like this?

The problem is that Rockstar listened to the people that played GTA IV three days and stopped playing because the "Driving is horrible" and alienated the people that have been playing the game non stop for the last 5 years.

Aside from the iFruit app, I haven't found anything to complain about with the game.

I love all aspects of it so far.

About to get on and play. Only thing I don't like about the game so far is not being able to switch back to Michael and Franklin when you are with Trevor. He's my least favorite character.

Am I hearing things or does Jimmy look and sound like Jonah Hill?

Apparently past reports show him as voicing Jimmy but GTA Wiki has Danny Tamberelli:

GTA 5 Voices: Jonah Hill Voices Michael’s Son James | Alive Game Zone as the voice:

I agree--I've played GTA since the top-down first version and I think it's great.

The map is so freakin' huge--I went up in the blimp for awhile just to take it in.

Plane and Helicopter flying is near impossible for me. Completely different then 4.

Cars I have no problem. First night needed some getting used to, now no problem.

I love these random events though like RDR.

I just rolled my Jeep while driving in the desert and got eaten by a mountain lion.

Best. Game. Ever.

Was that the option where you had to get the chopper?

Boy was that a boring heist. I drove right into the base, hopped into the chopper, and flew off without ever firing a shot.
