GTA V reality without relationships

By Daniel Chubb - Jun 28, 2012

One thing we have loved about most Grand Theft Auto games is the open world environment mixed with small steps towards reality, which improve with each release and are likely to deliver the best balance yet in GTA V. You can expect the police to be better armed with tear gas, riot shields, and more to make the next game more authentic.

Some things from real life don’t belong in Grand Theft Auto V – it’s great making the open world environment more lifelike, but there are certain features we would hate to see in the next installment and this includes having a relationship. We’re sure most gamers will agree with us that the Skyrim-type marriages would not work in GTA V, but this has not stopped some gamers posting on forums asking for these features, and the thought of an in-depth relationship in GTA is almost laughable.

Could you imagine having a Skyrim-level relationship within GTA V? This forum is touching on this very subject, asking if girlfriends should be included in the next GTA, and the replies give you a taste of what the gamer wants to do inside GTA V, which couldn’t be further away from buying a house, settling down, and then having kids. These gamers would much rather go to a strip club and dance with a girl, which could then lead to some one night stand action if allowed thanks to an 18+ game rating.

We’ve played Skyrim for well over 500 hours and enjoyed buying a house and getting married, but this doesn’t belong in GTA V in our opinion, and we cant quite understand what some gamers are thinking when they want this level of reality within Grand Theft Auto. It’s fair to say that the type of gangster you see in this game could have a family, but most people are not going to want this experience within the next game, how could it be fun to have Skyrim-level relationships in GTA 5?

Rockstar please give us car customization, more hardcore police, and even better how about another trailer or the release date soon, but you can forget about certain aspects of reality like relationships. It seems for now the silence is some sort of marketing tactic, and constant news about Max Payne 3 shows that Rockstar are not ready to give us more on GTA 5 at this time.
