I decided to play a 12 year old game again. It has been fun until this iconic mission.

Why can't Big Smoke aim better?

I really hate it when I keep failing missions and they play the same dialog over and over and over. Might be good writing the first time around, but every repetition makes it grating, annoying, and mocking.

GTA games are too long

t. quit GTAV after like 25 hours gameplay

It would have been good if it ended at 20 hours or so with free DLC story later. Playing like 60 hours of a single player game at once is overwhelming

Drive on the same level as the guy you're shooting at but on the far side of the track. Then smoke will actually hit the bad guys instead of the train/miss

I liked how in IV there were two different dialogs for nearly every mission, then on the third one I think they kept quiet as far as I remember.

While a smaller game, which had its problems, IV had some really nice touches that it was clear the developers really put thought into. In V one of the biggest things I missed from IV is how you could knock someone out with melee put not kill them.

Spoiler Alert!!
Big Smoke is actually working with the Ballas that's why he does his best to sabotage the Grove Street and to crush CJs spirit by being a poor shot. And one time when I was smoking funny cigarettes I also realized that this was the reason he was busy "eating food" in that mission where cj, ryder, sweet and him go to the drive thru and are intercepted by ballas.

Piss easy mission. All you need to do is to follow the damn train. Zero and flying missions are much harder imo. I guess the train mission works as a casual filter so they never even get to the harder parts.

The one with RC heli is easy, though. Probably even easier than the one in VC.

I completed this missions in the 6th try. You need to keep a certain distance from the train. There is an elevated portion, in or before the tunnel if I'm not mistaken, which is perfect.

The worst mission is with the RC helicopter where you have to bomb tanks and escort a car through the battlefield. It's not that hard but it's so boring

It just occurred to me this playthrough as well.

>>38547910

It had a nice atmosphere. A big problem with it is that it lacked the goofy, over the top events like stealing a jetpack from area 51.

All the games set in Liberty City seem to be grey and somber, while LA and Miami are whacky adventures.

No not cheating. I kept it from that mission where you stop the Balla/Russian arms trade.

Drive up close to the train and then jerk suddenly away. The bike will be at an angle that gives Smoke clearer shots on the enemies on top of the train.

It wasn't until imageboards that I discovered that this mission was supposed to be hard for people.

Coincidence. V is also more "serious", just a tone shift.

The trick was to land the plane and use it as a gun emplacement when truck stops at the red light, then fly to the next one. Shooting them from the air is over complicating everything.

Heh, I also did those missions for my cousins. But when I played it for the first time, I managed to beat it only on twentieth time or so. Well, I never was keen on flying simulators, even the most arcade ones.

It doesn't, it's just more adult, I'd say. Trevor doesn't allow the game to take itself serious.

I thought the scene with the night vision and bong was trying too hard to be funny.

He's totally insane, but not wacky. He's actually acting the way the player does most of the time, killing pedestrians just because they are there.

Those games had such promise but it sounds like they went to shit? Was it worth playing after 2? I think a 20 minutes credit roll would have me either walk away for a piss and a cup of tea or kill the process in the task manager to do something else instead.

If you wanted to stop playing this game and not touch it anymore, yes. But you'd have to watch it again if you didn't let it play out fully.

It's the typical Ubisoft open world formula. Find towers to unlock the map, do the same stuff over and over. Climbing still really great, though. When I played II for the first time I thought "this is the Tomb Raider game Tomb Raider itself should be".

For me I always really enjoy those games for the first while and then I realise it's another umpteen hours of grinding and doing the same tasks to unlock or collect things and get to the cool stuff or the story and the map is full of fillers and huge and I lose interest. Happened with Just Cause 2 (massive cookie cutter maps and missions) Farcry 2 (same again), etc. Blood Dragon was just the right size and had enough variation and set pieces to make it fun and interesting all the way while still having an open world that didn't require me to collect X 150 times and collect Y 500 times and so on.

I finished that mission on the first go with no problems, then for some reason I had to do it again and it took me several tries. Not more than 4 though I think.

You can't have games with only unique stuff, though. There's bound to be repetition, if only to develop the skills you need in the game.

I disagree. After doing something a billion times I don't need to do it a billion and one. I learned all the skills long before. Abe's Oddysee and other good platformers show a much more fun skill progression that actually expands skills and presents new challanges as you go. Not DO X TEN MILLION TIMES TO UNLOCK SHIT. The latter is lazy garbage tier game design. I can't believe anyone but the most OCD type with nothing else to do would finish such a game.

Bit of a problem these days is overspecialisation. On one hand, corridor shooters that go for the feeling of a movie (with the appropriate "freedom" of one), on the other hand sandboxes where everything looks and plays the same. No middle ground.
