Radio stations in GTA V remasteredEdit

The article gives a count of how many different songs were licensed for use in the game, however the PS4 remastered version eliminates some songs and replaces them with others. Should it be mentioned that the song mix is different in the PS4 version? 136.159.160.8 (talk) 21:02, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

"Players" vs. "the player"Edit

(WP:1RR). Recently there has been a difference in opinion over whether the gameplay section should use the singular noun "the player" or plural form "players". These changes were implemented by Pure conSouls on March 23, and my recent changes were reverted by Lordtobi today. WP:VG/GL explicitly allows either use, but recommends to pick and use one consistently: "For readability, choose either "the player" (singular) or "players" (plural) and stay consistent throughout the section [read: article]". Note that the plural form is used consistently in all other sections of the article (and has been for several years): in fact, in its current revision (with the gameplay changes) the article uses "players" 28 times, but "the player" only 21 times. The article passed all formal review processes and this issue was never raised at PR or FAC. My contention is that the use of plural form allows for more concise, 1a: "engaging" and "professional" writing, but also that the status quo should be retained unless there is a compelling argument to why this needed to be changed at all.

  • Its simple, if its a multiplayer game then use "players" but if its a single-player game use "the player" because only a "single-player" is controlling the protagonist(s). Pure conSouls (talk) 06:51, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, consistency is always the primary aspect. I wasn't aware that there was an inconsistency, so apologies for that. Anyhow, I do agree with what PCS says just above me, so I'll revert myself now but in the meantime we should consider gaining consensus on using the singular through the entire article.

Context specific activitiesEdit

"While free roaming the game world, players may engage in context-specific activities such as scuba diving underwater or BASE jumping via parachute"

Where else would you SCUBA dive, and how else would you BASE jump?! 124.171.73.214 (talk) 09:12, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Good point. - X201 (talk) 10:02, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

North YanktonEdit

Please add this article to Category:Video games set in North Dakota. The connection between Ludendorff and Bowbells is well established, the Ludendorff scenes are plot-significant, and North Yankton is a clear parody of North Dakota. --AlexWCovington (talk) 18:10, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Most stuff seen in North Yankton appears more like it is based on South Dakota (climate, city names, license plate colors). Either way, neither state-base/parody would be unsourced, hence no inclusion. 19:24, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
And either case, Yankton is a fictional standin, and the game is not based in either "Dakota". -- ferret (talk) 19:41, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

ControversiesEdit

Since you faqqots semi-autistic'ed the site from protection; "and the player is required to perform the acts in order to progress in the game," the previous sentence is false, extracted from [1]. Merely one act is requied to be performed multiple times, not all of them. The plural form is correct, as multiple torture sequences must be completed, but in current context it implies that all different torture methods must be attempted when, in actuality, merely repeating one method will suffice. Some person change this sentence on this article, on the "main article," and edit out my profanities if you're too sensitive to handle them. --I absolutely refuse to sign my post authentically, and remember; non-restricted pages results in none of abrasive comments. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.234.45.40 (talk) 14:04, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Watch your language. Offensive and ridiculous comments such as yours are the reason pages like this become restricted in the first place. If you want a problem to be solved, think about your approach next time. – Rhain 16:40, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
