Users noticed content seemingly removed from the GTA V next gen release, over claims Grand Theft Auto V had transphobic stereotypes.

The content seemingly removed from the GTA V next gen release was first discovered over on Reddit, where a user noticed the Captain Spacetoy action figure that had โ€œinterchangeable genitaliaโ€ has been removed entirely in the next-gen ports.

Hereโ€™s a comparison:


Other users noticed several โ€œDrag Queenโ€ NPCs that used to spawn outside of Cockatoos, an in-game club, are no longer appearing in game.

โ€œIn new-gen GTAV/GTAO, Rockstar appear to have disabled the trans caricatures or โ€˜drag queensโ€™ from spawning outside Cockatoos,โ€ Rockstar Games community admin Kirsty Cloud said.

They added, โ€œThis could be following a plea from OutMakingGames last year. I hope this provides comfort to anyone who felt these NPCs depicted harmful stereotypes.โ€

Hereโ€™s a comparison:



Out Making Games posted a letter to Rockstar Games last year, pleading with the billion-dollar publisher and developer to remove perceived transphobic content from Grand Theft Auto V, which has existed since the gameโ€™s debut back in 2013.

Users also found that while the drag queens have been removed from the Grand Theft Auto V world, they can still be found in the gameโ€™s Director Mode, however their dialogue lines have been removed.

Grand Theft Auto V game and its Grand Theft Auto V Online multiplayer component were recently ported to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 in March 2022.

They didnโ€™t notice fuck-all. These are the basement-dwelling, Mickey-Dโ€™s-employed freaks (the best Incels are trad parent-respecters, and, thus, are not basement-dwelling or freaks - but, yes, working for Mickey Dโ€™s is indeed reprehensible) that obsessed over this content, writing it down in their gay little notebooks, waiting for a re-release to โ€œachieveโ€ some sort of notoriety for ruining things for normal people, then reported the content to Rockstar and likely threatened them with some manner of extortion in the first place.

Frankly GTA hasn't been much fun since San Andreas. GTA IV is a pretty physics riddled bore and five is slightly more fun because the countryside, bikes were reintroduced plus multiple character choice. What happened to the cartoonish aspect, flying cars, hot coffee, cheat codes that are actually fun, gettin fat buff or anorexic, changing your clothes and hair but actually having a lot of choices, changing your ride up but actually having a lot of choices, turf wars, actual gangs, non-overproduced non-hollywood tier scripts and acting, just what the actual shitfuck happened to my GTA? The only thing good that happened past SA other than improved physics (which are actually pretty fun but that's about it for the new games) is the online mode.

I have had GTA V on PC since it first released on PC back in 2015. I enjoyed it. But the online mode is garbage and the lack of post launch single player content was a huge fucking disappointment. Taking the singe player DLC and making it GTAO was a shitty move.

But all I hear out of this is there will be less degeneracy in a GTA game. How terrible. How will I know tranny freaks exist if people don't shove them in my face all the time?

This isn't the kind of shit I went looking for in a GTA game. I was usually distracted by all the other visual spectacle. GTA 5 was a pretty nice looking game back in 2015. It's one those games that will still look good years down the road like MGS 5 and RDR2.

They said this was removed in the next gen version. So does it still exist in older versions? I might check it out on PC and see if they fucked with it.

I like how they call this GTA 5 re-release the next gen version. Congrats console faggots. You finally get to see GTA 5 the way PC gamers have been seeing it since fucking 2015. LOL

Yeah, totally next gen. LOL

I think he confused Roman numeral 4 (IV) with 5 (V).

I never saw any countryside in GTA4. The bike handling in GTA4 is shit tier. Most of the vehicles handle like shit. I know that was done on purpose but it still sucks. It's probably one of the biggest issues in GTA4 right up there with the poor optimization which kind of got fixed like a decade later by Rockstar. I think they did that back in 2016 or 2017.

You don't seem to understand the point of GTAO. It's not supposed to be balanced. You are supposed to get your ass kicked by people who bought a bunch of shark cards using mommy and daddies credit card or lifeless losers who sat around for hours and hours a day grinding their life away in a shitty multiplayer game. If you want to do better and beat other players you have to spend money or grind to get the stuff they have. That's how it works.

Ugh, I'm surprised they're able to keep any content with that much bloat of shitty content from GTA Online(with none of the side activities added to sp, just a few weapons and cars). Every time they add content it's not added to single player or they make it feel out of place there. Removing xer/xhe fags isn't anything for a game that you can get stun locked by hitting someone with the butt of a gun but headshots leave them in a T pose with one hp, oppressor MK2's, auto deletes online content if you spawn in single player, long load times, and you get C&D's for making interesting mods or god forbid a mp client with dedicated servers.

It's still good brainfry fun but this game really feels like a turd with sprinkles when you play it for too long. Really don't get how these nuthuggers can still shill for Rockstar now.

It's fun once you get good. I'm not going to say it's perfect, but the physics in IV are a step above V imo. Yes some aspects of V are more polished, but the physics feel dumbed down for kiddos in V. I have IV installed now and the bikes are still my favorite vehicles. It's true that they are a bit slip n slidey, but in V they're just glued to the road and take way less skill. In IV the bikes have little details like how if you lean forward you can fishtail the back tire under acceleration, or how the main brake button is only the front brake and the handbrake button is the rear brake. TBOGT and LATD have improved bike physics which aren't so slippery.

I understand GTAO probably better than 99% of all people. I played every update to the game on console religiously until around the Casino update or so. Never bought a shark card. When I transferred my account from PS3 to PS4 I paid a modder 20 bucks for I think around 160 million GTA$. I probably got another 150-200 million doing dozens of iterations of various money glitches over the years, as well as some 100 million in free cars doing variations of the GCTF (give car to friend) glitches. I had 3 full office garages filled with modded/glitched cars with Bennys wheels (not available normally on most cars in the game). My problem in the game was never if I had enough money, it was always "which car am I going to have to get rid of if I want the newest DLC car on Bennys for free?"

There were so many convoluted money glitches as they got patched month by month. There was one that had like 20 steps where you had to first do some glitch to transfer the stats of a car to a motorcycle. Then you had to steal a motorcycle off the street, and call a bus and park them both in front of your garage. Then go into the garage to pull out the glitched bike, which would crash into the found bike and bus and knock you off. After that the glitched bike would spawn twice and you could go sell the second one but keep the original that you rode out of the garage.
Then there was one where you had to go under the map and float down with a parachute into the hidden location of the 10 car garage under the map, which was invisible until after you landed inside it. Even in the later years, they did have some easy ways to glitch money. My favorite was the one where you would get arrested in singleplayer while eating the peyote, and during the animation you'd load into online with your single player character, and the peyote would be on the online map. You would eat it, turn into a dog, then run to your office where you could log onto the computer and buy anything you want without subtracting any money from your balance. I got like 30 X80s (which sell for over 2 million bucks) in under an hour that way.

When I complain about balance in GTAO, it's not the stuff you described, which is basically correct. I also hate that part, but I'm talking about all the small things that don't affect the economy in any way. For example, the racing classes are complete nonsense. There was always one car that was head and shoulders above the rest, and most cars in the class were unusable. They'd come out with a car that would fit perfectly in an existing class, yet they'd put it in another class where it would be either OP, or more often completely useless. And it wasn't like "buy the newest $2m car to win the race." Time and time again they'd release some super expensive car that wouldn't even come close to being competitive in its class, while costing the most money. In the sports class, the free Elegy was the fastest car for years, yet they'd release some shitty dog of a car that cost $2m. It just makes no sense.

It's been a years since I played GTAO but there were hundreds of examples of things like this where the game was just broken and unbalanced for no reason, ignoring all the ways they stack the deck against you to make you buy shark cards. I had all the money in the world in GTAO and these are problems that buying a shark card wouldn't fix. Some of these things got fixed after six years of people complaining about them, even though the fix is as simple as lowering a cooldown timer or fixing a broken menu item. Sometimes there would be an update that would add a new issue like this that wouldn't be fixed for years. The last time I played the 90 degree turn track piece had been missing from the creator mode for at least two years. The only way to get it was to have a project saved with it already spawned.

GTAV is an impressive game, but I still like IV better because it's just more fun at its core. For example in GTAV, all the guns sound like airsoft. Not all, but the vast majority of machine guns in V not only have weak, piddly SFX, but the actual cyclic rate of the gun is totally mismatched from the SFX. Rather than playing a "BANG" sound effect each time a round is fired, the game plays a loop of "pewpewpewpew" when you hold the trigger. This is divorced from the fire rate of most guns to an absurd degree. With the AK as an example, the real fire rate (how many bullets actually get fired) is around HALF of what you hear from the sfx. So if you squeeze the trigger and hear "pewpewpewpewpew" you only fire 2-3 rounds. Most of the guns in the game have this problem.

This video perfectly shows most of the things that make GTAIV more engaging in single player mode.

This bloody game is so old now that every time this AAA jew game studio re-releases it again on another piece of hardware like it's Skyrim, the game has to be adapted again to "fit the current cultural zeitgeist".

Back when this game was first initially released many MANY years ago, tranny bastards were still considered ridiculous enough to be rightfully ridiculed because the jews didn't put that Jenner freak out to pasture on Vanity Fair's front cover then yet. Simpler times in hindsight...

And yes, I haven't played GTA since San Andreas back on the PS2 when I was a teenager that didn't know any better. The novelty of senseless violence and debauchery that this series revels in is lost on me now. I don't humor the beast by entertaining it's "self referential" satire of our modern jewed out world while it's actually a lurid celebration of it (and Vice City was better than that empty, soulless copy paste world in SA).

Re-releasing this game for next gen is some faggot tier lazy ass shit.
