Fixed wing aircraft?[edit]

"To accommodate the map's size, the game introduces vehicle types absent in its predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV, such as fixed-wing aircraft.[12]"

Seems disingenuous to mention that GTA4 did not have airplanes, whereas GTA3 did. The whole tone of this artical is fawning, despite the citations.108.51.39.201 (talk) 15:51, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Not that I disagree but GTA 4 DID infact have airplanes, there just weren't any player controlled/enterable ones. Benners88 (talk) 01:05, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

Music[edit]

The game's music should be better represented in this article. I recommend having a bit more in the Development section (as a summary from the Development article) and having a bit more on the soundtrack's independent reviews in the Reception. I'm also proposing that The Music of Grand Theft Auto V and Welcome to Los Santos be merged into the Development article or something like Music of Grand Theft Auto V (similar in form to Music of the Mother series). The albums/radio stations have received some commentary on their own, but not to warrant several separate articles. I think they can be sufficiently covered in the Development article alone and then summarized in the main game article, but I also see enough sources to warrant an article on the game's music (the official soundtrack, secondary source coverage on the radio stations, the Alchemist/Oh No album) as a single entity. – czar 18:39, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

czar, I've just written a draft of the article here. It still needs some critical reception on Welcome to Los Santos, and the lead can probably be reworked, but is that basically what you were referring to? I also wanted to point out that Tangerine Dream released an album called The Cinematographic Score - GTA 5; it wasn't ever mentioned by Rockstar, so should this be added to the article too, or should we omit it? – Rhain1999 (talk to me) 01:25, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
I think that's definitely the right direction. Tangerine Dream's album should fit in there too—it's a better catch-all for the semi-but-not-independently notable music and soundtrack stuff czar 02:59, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Sounds good! I'll do some more work on it later. – Rhain1999 (talk to me) 03:03, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Most significant title in a generation[edit]

Hello, the article says GTA V is "considered one of seventh generation console gaming's most significant titles". But the game was launched in 2013, or seven years after the consoles were launched. Shouldn't it be the eighth generation, which began in 2013? --167.57.85.11 (talk) 01:58, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Technically, it can be played on both seventh and eight generation consoles; so, I guess it belongs to both. Nonetheless, the cited source claims it is one of the best games of last generation, at the same time mentioning that it has the potential to be one of the best of the current as well. I think the former is mentioned in the article as it is explicit whereas the latter is implicit. -- ChamithN (talk) 03:55, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Also, generations overlap. We technically still are in both 7th and 8th generation systems. --MASEM (t) 03:57, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
