that's the point. it isn't any better than any other gta. you're buying the game to kill people in different ways. graphics get updated every year, and adding a few utilities is always necessary, but at the end of the day it's the same run & gun game that you were playing in the 90's only more vulgar. many games' sequels obviously have the same element, but will change the way you have to act/react and what decisions you make or however i should describe that. in games like gta and saints row and stuff like that, though, it's just added ways to kill and move. there is nothing different about the game itself. all you do is kill for hours and then kill some more. that's what it's made for. is it entertaining? sure, for a while. is it some OMG AMAZING GAME DERP? no. it's gta.
