Free Aim although I'm not entirely sure if it's the gunplay itself (which is mostly good) or the way the frame rate effects it but it can be a real pain to aim at times but it's still preferable to having the auto aim do all the work for you, there's obviously a greater satisfaction being more connected to the gameplay itself and pulling off great shots.

@klei: It's especially noticeable when an enemy flanks or comes close to you, it's very hard to hit them (on free aim obviously).

20% complete.

Likes - Presentation: More or less all round other than anti aliasing, this game is great to explore due to very well done visuals that at times are surprisingly realistic, the sense of scale is very impressive also, seriously take a few minutes just to wander around the city, through back alleys etc on foot and it's a strikingly immersive experience.

Gunplay: Vastly improved since GTA IV but that was to be expected, still it's nice to play GTA with solid gunplay mechanics.

Driving: I was actually a fan of GTAIV's driving mechanics but not so much that I thought it should become a staple of the series, just a nice alternative to the more arcadey driving of previous GTA's and now V, that being said it's a blast to drive in GTA V, I very rarely crash and can do more or less what I intend.

Dislikes: FRAMERATE: This is a massive bummer and unfortunately holds the game back especially in combat/missions, the gunplay is great but all too often isn't allowed to shine due to the game really slowing down and feeling sluggish when the action kicks off, hopefully a patch will be released to fix this issue.

Battlefield 3 I guess, i've put 500hrs into it so I can hop into any multiplayer match and generally end up in the top 3, at this point more so than any multi player game ive played it all comes very naturally. I go through periods still of really loving the game and others of just getting a little tired of it since i've played it so much. Excellent game, saying that the new one hasn't won me over yet, looks like too much of the same, should have been BF2143 but maybe that will come as DLC further down the line.

Putting aside the whole Scottish/British thing it's good to see him get over the hurdle, he seemed heartbroken at losing last year so its good to see him fight back over and over again, in matches like the semi final, bouncing back to win Olympic Gold, the U.S. Open and now Wimbledon, we all like a comeback story.

That film was shite I'll give her that. My issue was more about never being on edge, I wasn't sure what the rules or limitations of the dreamworld and when and where the real world was effecting it. I've also never liked how womens fighting styles are always OTT back flipping rubbish, I don't think it's mysoginist to say women generally don't stand a chance against men in a fight, they are simply physically stronger and although strength isn't the be all end all of doing well in a fight it plays a big role, strength is just an asset it has no gender but tends to be more pronounced in the male gender, I know this is obvious but women always seem to get a free pass in this regard when portrayed as fighters/warriors etc in media, everyone would laugh if a 100 pound man was jumping around doing back flips and knocking out 6'4 body builders but for women it's cool or sexy (which isn't really the point of combat but whatever). Believe it or not I want to see more appropriate looking women in these roles like Brienne from Game Of Thrones (also see how Brienne has armour that doesn't direct arrows to her heart) or Mallory Kane from Haywire (which I haven't seen but they did cast an MMA fighter for the role which is par for the course for men but not women).

i think the idea is to relate what you're saying back to video games, this being in the general discussion of a video games website. discussing sarkeesian's video is on-topic, as she is expressly dealing with video games. perhaps a feminist interpretation, but video games nonetheless. it's great y'all support girlwriteswhat- but unless she's written or spoken about video games, i'm not sure what you're trying to achieve by invoking her perspectives. you're welcome to attempt to 'debunk' the entire concept of feminism, but this really isn't the place for that discussion.

She is a feminist and her views reflect that obviously, you cannot sweep that under the rug and forget it when discussing her content and how being influenced by that way of mind could effect her interpretation of video game tropes. You do not have to specifically talk about video games for your content to be relevant to it, and male disposability is directly relevant to how men are portrayed in video games especially the 'damsel in distress' trope (thats why I provided a video which outlines the concept far more eloquently than I ever could) yet Anita barely touches on the concept and doesn't explore it even though it directly relates to the games she is discussing, this major component of how men are portrayed in games and how that effects women in games as well, off topic? The worst that can happen by discussing this will raise awareness of the issue among gamers and hey, she may even make a video containing her views on the subject and yes, how it relates to games.

i'm simply stating that if you're making the case for a specifically feminist reading of video games to be illegitimate, then you're implicitly making the case that feminism itself is illegitimate. now you're free to think what you want, and believe what you want- if you want to abolish feminism as a school of thought, good luck to you- but this REALLY isn't the place for that battle. and regarding male disposability: that's certainly a hell of a concept. in fact, girlwriteswhat might even be on to something, and your suggestion that it might be as prevalent as the 'damsel in distress' in video games is interesting. but guess what, the disposable male, and the damsel in distress aren't mutually exclusive, and i certainly wouldn't argue one is more offensive or egregious than the other. so i'm not sure what you're trying to prove by mentioning it- it certainly doesn't discredit any of sarkeesian's assertions. and sarkeesian's under no obligations to mention anything regarding males, as her focus is women in games. that might seem imbalanced to you- but seeing as her channel is called 'feminist frequency,' i'm not sure why you'd expect her to focus on male tropes whatsoever. maybe you should write girlwriteswhat and make the suggestion to her!

Im not making a case for feminist reading of video games to be illigitimate just that it's open for discussion (for other users mostly), especially in a feminist video for how someones views could influence what she takes away from certain games. I don't know all that much about feminism, every post which goes something like 'you don't know what feminism is, if your against it your against womens rights' yada yada but most peoples issues stem from no one having a clear idea of what feminism is, every feminist has a different idea themselves and the general feeling of a focus on one genders issues over another which is inherently dangerous, anyway that hasn't really been the point of what I have been discussing just that discussing feminism in this case is entirely valid.

On to discussing the disposable male (which covers the objectification of men), I'l make this as clear as possible, when discussing the 'damsel in distress' you have to ask what the reasons are for the trope in the first place which she does in the video, everything from objectification of women to societies perception of gender roles, these are also not mutually exclusive to damsels in distress but they do play a massive role in the trope itself yet she does not explore male disposability/male gender roles in the same way when they are absolutely crucial to the issue at hand and I believe this reduces her video's educational value immensely. If your response is that she is only focusing on women then this and every video is more or less pointless as it is ignoring the reasons behind many of these tropes in the first place and calling her out on that should not be seen as irrelevant. Basically you can not discuss women's issues without examining men's roles in them and the reasoning behind them and vice versa, discussing sexism in a vacuum is pointless.
