Oi. Benjo. I'm curious as to your opinion about the ending. You were so excited before the games release. I wanna know if it lived up to your expectations.

It wasn't really the story that was exciting me, it was the gameplay in the open world. Did the story live up to my expectations? Well as you'll see above I predicted the ending back in May, but as a story, yeah the ending shocked me and I felt a pang of emotion. Did the gameplay live up to my expectations? Not even close.

I agree entirely. However, after putting a lot of thought into it, I'm not sure that's "entirely" rockstars fault.

They exaggerated the gameplay in their demo vids. Like, when they said "you can call out to a passing rider" and gave the insinuation that you could actually have a conversation with random NPCs. Unfortunately, they were being literal in that's ALL you can do. Call out to them.

I think for me where my disappointment in the gameplay falls was the hype I got from the people who got early previews. They said so many blatantly false things that R* never bothered to correct. I heard several people say that you could have entire conversations with NPC's and that they would all be as immersive as your conversations with Dutch. It was blatant lies like this that made me think it was a literal living, breathing world. And, when it came around and every feature that was hyped up was barely even functional, I felt cheated.

Nailed it.
