After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

My Favorite Car In Grand Theft Auto V Is The Coil, What's Yours?

Posted on Wednesday, September 25 @ 15:25:46 PST by

What's the best thing to do when you've grown tired of Grand Theft Auto V's story missions? Take a fast car and go joy riding. My favorite vehicle was always the Banshee, but in GTA V I'm hopelessly hooked on the Coil. That's Rockstar's mock of the Tesla Roadster. THE SOUND! The sound it makes as it speeds through Los Santos downtown! It's as good as any Batmobile mod could hope to be. Just check it out… and make sure to stay for the end, where I do only what comes natural in a fast car on a hot LS night:

Almost every vehicle handles appropriately and distinctly. Some cars are very close together in weight, in power, and in handling, but the large variety of vehicles all feel great. Planes bank convincingly and even boats manage to have very different handling between them. Before V's release, this was the one thing that worried me.

Sure, you could learn to drive pretty well in Grand Theft Auto IV, but the controls always seemed to pull away from you. Go on youtube, look at people on there and they've gone so deep they're flipping cars off of skyscrapers and bouncing and all kinds of crazy stuff. Still, it was really hard to learn how to control each vehicle's weight. In V, there's a lot more feedback… not to mention a lot of forgiveness.

Cars slide a lot more than they should, but it's almost always recovered as you naturally try to correct. There's also Franklin's special ability (which I really like playing with) that can virtually negate any and all crashing situations… though it can also cause some.

By now you should have all helped out Tanya. I feel so depressed whenever I see Tanya, but I help her out anyway. Anyway, I was going for Gold on an early Tow Job mission and I used Franklin's special ability to give the truck a bit more speed. It worked a little too well. Pretty soon I was flying down the street, and while hitting the breaks meant flinging the car I was towing off my hook...

I did it anyway.

What's your favorite part of Grand Theft Auto V? The base-jumping? The marathons? Fighting sharks? Still working on the story?  If you need help on getting 100% Gold on mission replay, check out our tips.
