Well, that certainly was a lot of build-up for a trailer, wasn't it?
As is tradition in this industry, we've all been on our usual pins and needles waiting for this latest communique from Rockstar Games in regards to Grand Theft Auto V, and if the snapshot reaction from people around various social media platforms is any indication, folks are not disappointed.
We've heard all the bluster about the game being bigger than pretty much all the GTAs combined, and we all (hopefully) read Game Informer's in-depth feature on the various systems the game will employ. And now, we've seen the whole thing in motion, albeit in tightly edited promotional trailer form.
Still, it's a very good trailer, lighter in tone than even Grand Theft Auto is typical for. Grand Theft Auto IV was certainly funny, but this game seems to be taking on a more overtly ludicrous tone. Considering ludicrous is often what Rockstar Games does best, that perhaps bodes well for the final product.
Also, did you see that part where they were on the truck carrying cars and they started flinging cars off the truck carrying cars onto other cars? I've been waiting since Bad Boys II to do that to somebody in a video game.
So, what did you think?
