Okay, so I admit, I had my trepidations about coming into this game but I've played GTA since Three and they've been interesting, seemingly witty, and architecturally impressive. However, with GTAV I am at a point where I just cannot seem to advance. I find no excitement nor interest in the plot nor characters, which I feel are rather dull and boring; I find the controls lacking and watered down:driving, shooting, generally exploring, they are all rather lackluster; and all around, I find the setting to be exceedingly plastic. And yes, I can understand a certain irony in that last statement in regards to the game's location; however, I do not believe boredom is the desired outcome for such a vista.
The missions are doled out in a rather trite manner and there is so little focus on one, main, individual that most of the game appears to be a jumbled mess. Maybe I'm just not getting far enough along within the plot and am being swayed into doing too many extracurricular side missions, but I cannot seem to move myself into pursuing the storyline.
What am I missing from this game? Am I not playing it right? I find that rather egregious, considering it's a rather simplistically controlled game, but still, maybe I am not playing it, "right." Can someone try to sway me back into playing this, in my opinion, driveling game? Or am I stuck in the limbo of boredom and loss over what should have been a great experience for me?
