It’s far from being a deal breaker when we heard that dating will not be featured in GTA V.
Love Is In The Air For GTA V?
We think dating in GTA V could be really good because of the sheer size and complexity of the environment.
We also thought the dating systems in San Andreas and GTA IV added another layer of immersion to the game world.
There are so many side activities that could be a part of dating in GTA V, including diving and going to the amusement pier.
You could go on rides and win prizes for your date, and perhaps have to fight off a pervert who comes on to your date.
How about going on a sailing trip and throwing her overboard? Or taking her to a hotel?
Well, you could basically compile a huge list of things you could do on a date in this game, and there are also countless things you could do to have the AI interact as well.
How about random events during a date?
You could be out on a date and some dude shows up wanting t fight you because your date happens to be his girlfriend.
The bottom line is, dating could be very entertaining if it’s done correctly.
Yes, dating was introduced via main missions in both games, but it was never “forced” on the player during free roam.
We would like to see an option where, if you go on an Internet dating site, and arrange to date them, you can kidnap them and hold them for ransom, that would be pretty neat.
Not sure why anyone would prefer a mere booty call system, what would be the point?
The date is the fun part (e.g., playing pool, driving drunk), whereas a booty call is just driving to a cut scene.
The game already has hookers anyway.
Fortunately, GTA V will still have friend activities and mini-games.
