I really like the dynamic character switching. Swapping between different characters (and dogs) is pretty awesome.

Driving is fun, I really like the bicycles. been hitting up the concrete park near the beach quite a bit.

It feels like a true sandbox. I spent hours watching movies, smoking weed, banging strippers and just driving last night. Did 1 mission and I didn't feel like I was wasting my time. That is my favorite part.

Got mine yesterday from game fly really liking it so far. Really cool to switch between characters and play the same game same world but different stories/events that all tie in some way or another. 
Love the ability to just roam and do whatever and then do missions when ever you want. Driving is great except for the first mission with Franklin in those fast cars they were very twitchy and not to forgiving. Then driving frankilins car and other cars were smooth. 
Great game can't wait to unlock The third character Trevor as he looks hilarious from the videos.

He's... interesting to play. He feels like he should be a side character from Breaking Bad lol

So I now have all characters unlocked and switchable. I am really enjoying the different characters and their abilities and characteristics. Great story lines and game play. Really can't wait till Oct 1st GTA online will be so OP.

Agreed.  GTAO is gonna be OP.  But so far I am really enjoying the story.  I have been playing a good chunk over the last few day and really love this game.  I love the characters, story, gameplay... everything really.  The driving threw me off a little at first but I am getting used to it now.  I still like driving better in GTA4 but everything else is so much better in this game.

Wasn't sure about the switching characters thing from previews of the game but now that I am actually playing it, I love it.  And I really like the way the story connect all the characters.

And of course, heists are OP!

More later.

It's pretty cool so far but I've just gotten to the point of opening up Trevor's stuff, so I'm not that far into it.  Having a hard time taking time away from Diablo 3, lol.

So far I think the only thing that REALLY gets to me is the car handling.  I don't expect Forza 5 type physics, but these things are so twitchy it's hard to keep them straight.  Maybe I just need to improve my driving skill more as I'm sure that makes a difference.

Overall good so far, just need some more time with it.  And yeah, I can see GTAO being pretty d@mn fun.

Cars were weird at first. Once you adjust to the style they're actually very fun. You just have to avoid thinking logically about how a car should handle.

Also, go do the ATV races they have around where you start as Trevor. Once you do a couple of those you'll go back to cars and be amazed at how easy they are to handle by comparison. ATV twitch OP.

I like the game but i wish the "camera view" while driving was higher above the car than now. I can't see whats coming up till its already almost there. and hills. hills cause wrecks haha. But yall might be used to it, this is the first time i've played since renting the first and second one back in the day. Cool story, finally getting lots of money to do fun stuff and buy things.

The camera view has been that way forever in this series.  If you scroll through the camera view options, one of them is slightly further way.  But not really enough to matter lol.  Driving required a good amount of dexterity to do proficiently.  Basically, you have to drive with both thumb sticks.  One steering and the other deftly moving the camera to a higher angle.  And use your middle finger for gas so your index finger is ready to use the e-brake (RB) at any moment. 

*Same is true for flying.  Use your middle fingers for throttle and index fingers for the rudders (LB & RB).  It's a little weird at first but really good control once you get used to it.

Hence the statement...  "Driving required a good amount of dexterity to do proficiently." lol.  It's definately not easy but with practice, you will get better.  Unfortunately, some accidents are unavoidable.  As Kenny said yesterday, "I swear the AI's only job is to turn into me!"

Liking the game a lot but I can't stand what they did to flying vehicles. The random rolling in helis and planes is stupid and does nothing for the game play. From what I have read a lot people feel the same way. I hope they remove it in a patch or something.

You can change the camera angle for driving.
Go into the options menu, it lets you cycle through pretty much the same views forza has. Bumper, Behind near, Behind Far, etc.

Is it different from the cameras you cycle through in-game?

Nope, that's what I was thinking of. They're not amazing, but better than default.

I can't recall exactly but I think I'm just over 20%'ish.  I'm in no hurry.  Usually I'll do some storyline stuff and then wander around aimlessly for quite a while.  God a nice little private dance from a pair of hotties down at the strip club, then went to the movies and watched some funny ass "Loneliest Robot" movie.
