Cops and crooks was amazing, I think everyone's got a story from playing that game. I have an amazing story in which a single crook(me) overcame all odds to escape the police after a leap of faith from a bridge left him nearly dead.

And the property buying could be really cool.

I hoped for a china town wars style drug dealing, but that's unlikely now.

Triathlons were just holding forward and A for an uncomfortable amount of time.

yeah c&c (all for one) was awesome. but after playing it so much i would know where the getaway would spawn. so would others and they would trash the boat so hopefully the new c&c will have multiple escape vehicles to choose from. on top of that the lobby system sucked as the host wouldn't check ready sometimes and teams were often uneven. i'm sure it's all been sorted for v though.

@cheaptrick piss off spamming *****.

The title of this article is "GTA 5: The other things that WILL make it great" - so why on earth is coop play mentioned?

Dan Houser (the Vice President of Rockstar) has clearly and categorically stated in several interviews that coop play will NOT be a feature of the campaign, stating:

"It would be impossible to do that and keep the level of precision we've got in this. You could make a great co-op game, but we felt that we're doing other bits of our multiplayer that will fulfill those desires in ways we think are very fun".

It seems the team at Videogamer are intent on hyping GTA 5 up to an absurd level which is becoming embarrassing, already declaring it the 'Next-Gen come early' and 'the best game of this generation and beyond' (having not actually played the game at all).

However this is just shoddy journalism, in complete disregard of the facts. There is a lot we don't know about GTA 5 - but we do know for a fact that coop play will not be incorporated in the campaign, and for coop play to even be mentioned in an article about the things which (supposedly) WILL make GTA 5 great is misleading and wrong.

Coop play should be removed from the article, and in general, the team at Videogamer need to display a lot more objectivity about GTA 5 and tone down the hyperbole when reporting about the game.

    Welcome to Videogamer.com the videogame site that is run by gamers, fans of videogames and if your a videogamer fan that isn't a Rockstar fan then you may as well just have your main console be an iPod touch. Houser said as you quoted the campaign won't be co-op but I'm presuming as I haven't had hands on or seen the game for myself that the side missions and of which I also presume that the heists are also classed as side missions not main story may well
    Be co-op based it would make sense for the heists to be played online it sounds fun to plan wit your mates and I can't imagine rockstar would leave that out they seem to know what gamers want from there games, they haven't really gotten it wrong yet have they, well in your opinion maybe.

    From what I understand, you're trying to sat that heists can be a part of the multi-player. Similar to RDR, where you and your posse just roll around taking out strongholds and other such things, for that good loot at the end, similar to single-player free roaming.
    If that's what you're getting at, GTA V will be a definite no questions asked Best Multiplayer 2013.

    If all video game sites only stated facts and didn't veer into fanboy conversation, or excited speculation, then ALL websites would say EXACTLY the same thing. So there would be no need for any of them at all.

    If, however, you're looking for a place to discuss video games and possibilities, then continue reading.

    Exactly what I'm getting at, you still roamed the land with other players with the whole map accessible but scattered around there were missions to take part in the only thing was it was missing npc characters roaming around the towns in free roam as I recall so GTA V needs to be able to keep the entire single player atmosphere in free roam for it to work otherwise it will just feel like your robbing from a ghost town again, GTA 4 I think was same too or I may be remembering that wrong. Rockstar are not stupid they know what we want and what we liked from before they brought free roam from 4 to red dead and can't see them cutting it from 5 only enhance it even further with these heists. I'm so excited for gameplay from this but as its rockstar we are just gonna have to wait patiently till At least August I reckon, but guarantee we are not gonna be disappointed at all.

    My god you really have it in for GTA don't you? Did Rockstar boink your Gran or something. I don't think you understand what this website or any other of this nature is about.
    What on earth is there to be embarrassed about? Having an opinion about a videogame?
