I'm posting a first impressions thread in GAMEPLAY section here, hoping not to be spoiling the game, but rather answering some more questions that Rockstar didn't do themselves, Key things we fans might worry about is how much is changed, what's an improvement change, or hinders the game's evolution. THERE IS THAT! I have to be non-biased in saying I don't like certain elements of GTA V, driving into traffic and some of the AI regarding traffic handling seems like it's borrowing from other companies' games, more specifically ROAD RACING or any racing specific games. Rockstar had said already that things like customizing rides wouldn't be on the order of such stand alone games allowing the same, but it's an issue for me that there is something lacking with this section of the game experience

That's one of the most comforting things I've ever read.
I'm about 40% into it? A little more. Complete wow over this game. Really fun. The driving surprised me at first -- it's more cartoony like the games prior IV. I got used to it though, and as soon as I did I was able to let my vision look at the rest of the map, enjoying the architecture and scenery, instead of having to focus on my vehicle to make sure I'm not crashing. Stellar game. I'm glad R* brought back the humor to GTA that we all love.
