Max Payne 3 has, in our humble opinion, some of the best shooting mechanics ever devised for a third person shooter. This is a very good thing considering it looks like Rockstar Games are using/taking inspiration from it (at least as a base) for the shooting/combat gameplay mechanics in Grand Theft Auto V.
Check out the video further below and you’ll see what we mean. It also makes sense because Rockstar are known for taking the best aspects/features/whatever from already existing games in their portfolio and using them in new titles (with tweaks and improvements as appropriate). We think it’s logical that GTA 5, which should be the epic game we think/hope/are preying for, is the cumulation of everything good Rockstar done so far.
In fact, not only does it look like elements of Max Payne 3 will exist in GTA V, but you could also say that the hunting and vast wilderness in GTA 5 are inspired by Red Dead Redemption and of course there are all the previous GTA games which will certainly help in terms of crafting the urban areas of Los Santos.
Anyway, we digress. The bottom line should be that if you liked the combat system in Max Payne 3, you will like the combat system in GTA 5. Enjoy the video!
