well, let me start off with this: have you played GTA5?
Yeah, about seven hours. Love the mechanics. Really love them. The environments, stellar. The visuals and art direction, amazing, especially for PS3 and representing a very, very large game world. But the narrative elements, I just do not care, no motivation, and about an hour of dialogue chatter even messing around in the game world, I have to quit playing. I just can't take it.
