GTA Definitive Edition Dumpster Fire
This video serves as a quick channel update on the dumpster fire that is the GTA Definitive Edition. The speaker, an old grumpy gamer named Dan, was streaming GTA San Andreas on November 12, 2021, when the game crashed after almost 10 hours of gameplay. Since then, the trilogy has been locked by Rockstar, and Dan will have to reinstall the whole game once it’s finally restored – which may require him to download it again. While this is merely a minor inconvenience for Dan, it may end up costing other gamers more time and money.
The Speaker’s Perspective
As a software engineer, Dan is generally understanding of problems related to software rollouts and the effort involved in building any kind of software. Still, he is not impressed with the Grand Theft Auto Definitive Edition, especially after paying full price for it. If the game is not fixed and fully restored by Friday morning (British Standard Time), Dan will be uninstalling it and asking for a refund.
While waiting for the resolution of this issue, Dan has two more GTA San Andreas videos in the pipeline. One covers gang war strategies, while the other goes over some of the gotchas gamers may encounter when migrating from GTA V or GTA Online. After that, it’s back to regular programming.
In conclusion, the GTA Definitive Edition has been a major disappointment for many gamers, including Dan. While he is willing to give Rockstar the benefit of the doubt, he believes that the company needs to do better before charging full price for a remastered trilogy. If you’re interested in GTA San Andreas gameplay, stay tuned for Dan’s upcoming videos on gang war strategies and gotchas to watch out for. And if you’re thinking of downloading the game or buying it on Game Pass, be aware of the potential issues with the remastered version.
