The Good
+ When you die, you do not lose any of your weapons and ammunition. You only lose some cash. If you invest most of your money in the stock market, the amount of money lost is minimal.

As mentioned above, dying incurs very little penalty. You almost never worry about dying, getting arrested, or failing a mission. If you find a mission too hard or boring, you can just skip it, and never need to play it again.

There is no difficulty setting in GTAV. Everyone is playing on the same difficulty. If your goal is to "beat the game", like in other shooters, you will not find GTAV satisfying at all. You will certainly beat it without any kind of skills.

The missions are fun only when they are replayed.

In 70% of the missions, you don't even know what you're supposed to do. When you're in a mission, the gameplay becomes EXTREMELY linear. You have to do EXACTLY what the designers expected you to. Any small mistake can cause your mission to fail. It gets really annoying.

But, here comes the fun part. When you REPLAY a mission, you can try to get a gold or silver medal. This is where the missions really become interesting, and the gameplay starts to shine. Since you're replaying them, you already know what you're supposed to do. Everytime you replay a mission, you have a clear goal in mind: fulfill one of the gold medal requirements. This time, you'll need to employ real skill and strategic planning. You will be rewarded for your use of skill and strategy. Getting a silver or gold medal is the most satisfying thing to do in GTAV.
