Beef Stew : Glad you're picking on actually bad games, not masterpieces like Bookworm Adventures Deluxe.

Mimiyo : WaNNa HaVe FrEe ShArk CarDs?

Veritas Calivmeir : Grand Theft Auto? More like Time Theft Lobby

Billy Humphrey : Dunkey I know when you’re 20 people in their 40’s are ancient Methuselahs to you, but we know what a hipster is.

Harry De Cat : The conversations taking place in the car is the only thing entertaining during the car drive

Dug : I was expecting some mention of shark cards

Wes Tolson : I can't believe you didn't talk about shark cards. The entirety of GTA online is designed to make you want to pay for in game currency. It's such a chore to accomplish everything in the game from loading into a server to loading into a match and then loading back into the world etc. And then you have to actually do well to actually make any money. Plus there's plenty of ways to make money in the open world, but you'll almpost always get fucked with by other players. The price of apartments, cars, and basically everything is ridiculous for the amount of time required to make enough money to pay for anything. The entire point of GTA is to get tons of money, but you can literally skip the entire game if you pay microtransactions. And they aren't even worth it either because you have to pay like $100 dollars to get one of the new cars.... or just play the game for 200 hours.

Earth Is A Donut : *Niko! Let's go bowling*

Tyler Robertson : I know JonTron hates Dunkey because he's black, but imagine if they made a collab lol. That'd be sick

Mads Stays Noided : Your one point about the emptiness of the maps is the most pertinent; Rockstar are edging closer and closer to the approach of their parent company when it comes to sandboxes- large, pretty, polished, but with next to nothing to do. Nothing is done for the sake of verisimilitude or variety anymore- interiors are unrendered or sparse and empty at best; radiant/miscellaneous quests/missions like the various vehicle-specific missions in earlier GTAs and the phenomenally deep and entertaining LCPD missions in GTA IV are gone, replaced by... nothing. Custom races with an inexplicably small pool of resources and models, not to mention tools for modification and map modulation and shark cards? I hope RDR2 doesn't drop into the same pitfalls as GTA V and goes for authenticity and depth over technical shine and so-so online modes...

Demilightning : I like the car talk...

James Altheide : All the dislikes are Rockstar developers lol

Nafi N : You forgot the players in FLYING CARS that shoot HOMING MISSILES that kill everyone. Oh and don’t forget that if you blow up their flying missile machine you have to pay them your money.

Milky_Shakez : Red Dead Redemption is probably the best Rockstar game I've ever played.

TheBanana Man : I don't agree on the car dialogue, gives some of the most comedic moments in the rockstar games

Abbreviated Reviews : So can we get the end of the Uncle Gungalar story? Or is that the new Sea of Thieves DLC?

SpaceMissile : 0:57 - The point of the boring towing mission is to contrast the mundane 'straight' life to the glamorous life of crime. Towing a car is boring, yeah. Now let's go do some fun missions with lamar right after this one.

Joax Arkus : All the gta games besides v has had dozens of songs removed because of how cheap rockstar is to paying loyalties.

John Escorpion : The song is: GTA V - No Happy Endings (ᴗ ͜ʖ ᴗ)

Cooper : GTA V feels like a chore to me. :c Don't get me wrong, it's still a good game but I feel like missions and gameplay itself were much better in IV or previous 3D era titles.

GameTitan74 : This franchise makes you feel like Batman.

mkobrien49 : No clue why so many people are giving Jason shit for this video. I agreed with everything he said here. Replayability is insanely important. Especially on a game they re-released on another generation of consoles, due to how (I assume) a lot of those who purchased the XBONE and PS4 versions had played it through on the last gen. Utilization of the entire map of an open world game is also important. It doesn't really make much sense to me why a dev would put a shitload of time into developing a world and not even use it to its full potential. But hey, that's just my view.

Physical Manifestation of Cancer : Vice City is best girl.

definitelyji : you forgot the lack of content on single player mode.

MeowMix : MY 45 year old boss actually uses the word hipster lol

Ecstasy : Tbh they should make Knack battle Royale.

Uma Kompton's Fan Club : >be me >15 min loading screen to go online >wait 30 mins to do a heist >all players load >heist starts >15 mins into heist >player dies >player leaves >disconnected >restart >turn off gta v >go to YouTube >write this comment

Kimchi Samurai : The hate for League of Legends is strong on this one

rotflolextreme : The world is so open that it loses heart the bigger it gets. Lots of empty space, and laggy online matchmaking because the rendering and synchronization probably takes up MASSIVE amounts of bandwidth.

Yabatron And Factness INC. : Does anyone else want to hear the rest of the story about Dunkey and Goongalar?

Mr Munk00 : I watched this while waiting for a gta race to start... IM STILL WAITING

A Dragon Milkshake : You should've just done a whole video on GTA Online, since that game has fallen so far from grace. Never have I ever seen a game that's so severely pay 2 win.

oldcracker : dont forget rockstar's abismal anti cheat in GTA Online and the amount of griefers is insane and everything is p2w

itsSaucyJohn : dunkey nails it here, i love rockstar games, but my only complaints are 1. the matchmaking is just terrible, can never get a game started fast and almost never had a 6+ player game because people are too impatient to wait in the lobby. 2. Whatever car you drive, you all of a sudden see everyone around you in that area driving the same car, really takes out the realism in the "randomness" of reality 3. Maybe more utilization of the unique places all over los santos to feel less dead. These are small issues though, still a great game

CivilizedWorm : I think you put Blizzard and From Software on that AAA list by mistake.

WillyMacShow : Exactly. Open worlds seem more like backdrops rather than interactive playgrounds. Like come on boys, let me build a sandcastle in this sandbox! Instead it's just and empty box. The box looks nice, but it's still just an empty box.

Creamtor Tobin : Damn, Rockstar should be picked on because they didn't make Manhunt 3

JustAYouTuber : You forgot how some games just don't work well at all anymore like GTA 4/LC. Those games are so buggy even if you have a good computer.

MartMart : I thin the "boring" scenes are good. Kind of makes it more realistic and gives perspective on the fun scenes. Hard to explain but i hope some ppl understand

DovahKitty : It’s not often, but I gotta say I disagree with Dunkey on the car dialogue and the replayability. I really loved the dialogue, often driving to get all of it. It was interesting. The replayability aspect I’m talking about it is single player. I really liked playing the single player aspect, maybe not so much of GTA 4, but GTA 5 was great! Aside from those two points, I do agree on everything else. I really liked GTA online WITH friends! It was really fun aside from the long loading times. After a while my friends were playing other games so I tried multiplayer with just myself and matchmaking with others... yeah that was a garbage experience.

meerokay : Dunkey I swear you're the only youtuber I watch these days. Every single video you put out is quality

Bo Warner : Why wasn't ATLUS in the group of companies that release a quality title every time

Hendrik Haaviste : While RDR2 is coming out, i came here to see what Dunkey thinks about Rockstar or maybe give his opinion on the new game. But i have to disagree with Dunkey and a lot of commenters, although i have to agree with the replayability. Firstly i think the car dialog is a great thing. He points out that it is unnecessary or that gangster don't talk like that, but this is Rockstar, they are famous for making weird and funny dialogs, also it is a way to help develop characters. Secondly the open world issue, when you are making a world as big as it is the GTA world, you really can't expect them to make every location entertaining. They made the world so it would seem realistic and they have missions, so you would travel to almost everywhere in the map. And for the last issue, Dunkey compares GTA V online with other games that were made for online matchmaking. People didn't expect when they were announcing GTA V that it would have a online feature. Online is something they made so when you finished the story you would have a chance to play the same game with others. I have to agree that it loads into game pretty slow but you don't have to through singleplayer and i haven't had any problems with connecting with other players. As to the commenters who said add shark card issue to the list. I know that it is a bad thing, but it is exactly the same method other online games use. When playing online games like Siege, League of Legends, CoD etc, they all require you to either grind or buy their ingame currency to get the things easier. Me nor my friends have never bought shark cards or other microtransactions. All we did was have fun with the heists, missions, races and we have a lot of cars, houses, bunker etc. I just hope this will not be a big issue in the new Red Dead Redemption 2.

Antonio Randolfi : Last week I've played for the first time Red Dead Redemption and it is so BORING! Dropped after the mission on the raft. I don't understand why it is so well appreciated.

A'n'B Gaming : Why do you sound like 70 year old black man???

Veridian : Rockstar could take to the next level by making *GTA: Knackopolis Kazooie*

AJM_The Black-Fenrir : I actually enjoy car dialogue...

Phoenix : Another thing that you forgot to mention is that Rockstar are not fully aware of themselves. They are always comfortable making satires and poking fun of other GTA clones, but when other games or shows, parody their games they start throwing lawsuit tantrums. while the quality of the spoken games may be varied, they still look like complete hypocrites .

Adapt : What was the song at the queue part of the video?

Weary Hoss : I think the main problem is it appeals to male fantansy and you dont know anything about that cause you're balck
