Precisely. That was spectacular. The contrasting environments were glorious (from the ghetto to Hollywood to a forest to country to corn fields to mountains to Las Vegas to the desert to Area 51 to the Hover Dam). It was all great.

That's just off the top of my head....

But it's not like I hate the game or anything, it was a good game. Just as far as GTA's go it was a huge letdown for myself and many others.
I got 100% complete in around 50hrs game play from memory. It took well over 100 hours to do that on 3, VC and SA.
GTA's never had high end graphics before GTA 4, what they had was the very best content, and that's what made the series so good.

GTA 4 was good for me.. before all the patches came..
They didnt fix any shit! all they did was down-grade the F***** game!
They took out the "Car Turns Off" Feature.. mannn, When they took that out.. I was mad pissed! Cuz you know,... It felt realistic to me...

I wanna see a combination between San Andreas and Vice City...

CUZ WHEN I THINK OF VICE CITY, I IMAGINE NEON COLORS..
AND WHEN I IMAGINE NEON COLORS, IT GIVES ME THAT CLASSIC FEELING..
And I wish, they would let us edit our character too though....

The really thing that I want is back is the AIRPLANE!!! **** HELICOPTERS RIGHT NOW! I WANNA ACT LIKE I A PILOT! :) And I hope they'll add Boeing :)

I agree. Maintaining the relationships was by far the worst part of that game. It was sort of neat at first, but to be penalized because I turned down a phone call from some character when I'm in the middle of a high speed chase. Even side missions they'd call during.

I loaded up GTA 4 yesterday to jump on multiplayer. As the game loads the first thing that happened? My phone ringning. I sat there and laughed. That definately was an annoying part of the game. I wanted to throw the phone off a bridge.

What else? Seems a bit silly that these options which are minor to say the least have some people thinking GTA 4 didnt top San Andreas.

GTA 4 killed San Andreas to me. And San Andreas was really what made me get into my ps2. I had one and rarely even played it but decided to check this game out. It was great...fot its time. But just like RDR topped GTA 4? So did GTA 4 with San Andreas. And really you want that to be the case. Learn from your former game.

I never put as much time into GTA 4 than I have any video game I ever had. Not counting the growing up to teenage days of course. Thats just story mode + 2 DLC which was pretty good (Ballad of Gay Tony easily the best). We wont even get into multiplayer. I bet there are people right now playing in Free Mode. Numerous lobbies. I bet there are people trying to level up playing Hangmans Noose. Does this argument mean its a case closed GTa 4 was classic because you can find gamers still on it today? No, but it makes you ask yourself what is it about GTA 4 that has people still playing it. It dropped in Spring 2008. Its 2011, with 2 months to hit 2012. Are you kidding me?

Maybe the criticism is that its not the perfect game and the nitpicking is showing that. I'll buy that. But I just dont see how this game lacks being a classic. I dont see how its not near great. I guess people were really caught up inthe gang bangin, yo homeboy break yo self fool stuff San Andreas brought. Its like I listen to gangsta music, I see it on tv but now I get to be apart of it to a degree. I know I'm offbase but it just feels like for some people that really is the case.

Interesting points GOBB. I think San Andreas was a hip hop kids wet dream. It played up to pop culture references better than any other GTA game in the series.

GTA 4 was gritty. Its main character was an eastern european immigrant. Trying to find his way in a new country in search of that elusive "American" dream. While it's a better story it's a serious sequel to follow up from a popcorn flick of a game like San Andreas.

An add on that dropped a year later. Most of the GTA 4 complaining revolves around the main game. Not add ons.

Haha good to see i wasn't the only one.

Anyway onto the whole GTA 4 subject i think perhaps it was too realistic for me, and having to put cheats into a phone annoyed me aswell. I enjoyed san andreas because it felt like the era it was built around, and it was something that i could play without having to think a whole lot. You could drive around shoot some guys, run from the cops and then when you'd had enough you could get rid of them with a cheat.

I think having achievements to get also drew away from the storyline a little which probably didn't help. Just a lot of little things that kept the game from drawing me in like the previous ones.

I think the cultural stuff is the wet dream in general. San Andreas was that 90s hip hop culture. Vice City captured the excessive 80s culture. It ties into soundtrack, allows for broadly stroked jokes, paradies of characters.

And I think that was the biggest mistake IV made, not tieing itself to a culture. The soundtrack even was a problem because of it. But it also forced it to lose some of it's humor. Otherwise the game is spectacular.

I just hope they get back to a cultrural parady of some kind.

Default Re: Gta 5 Announced!!

Here's an article full of rumors from Game Informer. I will say that based on the cast of characters rumor from a previous casting call, it sounds like DC is a distinct possibility. Activists and Liberal Conspiracy Theorists.


Quote:
Quote:
There have been no shortage of rumors regarding a potential follow-up to Rockstar's critically acclaimed GTA IV, but today the developer officially announced the sequel on its website. It's time to take a look at the various rumors that have been swirling around the project for the past year and judge how likely they are to come to fruition.



Rumor #1: A Colorful Cast
The GTA series has always been known for its outrageous cast of characters, and we're sure GTA V will be no different. However a casting call for voice actors from earlier in the year provided a little more information about who we might see in the next game. Although the casting call didn't name GTA V specifically, one of the characters (a "man-boy love activist" named James Pedeaston) was featured on an in-game website in GTA IV. The same casting call details other characters that may end up in GTA V, including a liberal conspiracy theorist, a pre-teen boy advocating his right to drink alcohol and have sex, and a young female "obsessed with sex parties."

Another casting call for a game codenamed Rush is also believed to be for GTA V, though the evidence is less concrete. This list of characters includes an FBI agent caught between rival mafia families, a monk/cult leader/yoga teacher, a "neurotic soccer mom," and a "weed evangelist," among many others.

Likelihood: Probable
Not only is there solid evidence of at least the first casting call being true, but both lists of characters fit with the hallmark of Rockstar's writing: biting, politically-charged, and hilarious satire of life in America.



Rumor #2: Team Bondi Tech
This summer Team Bondi's Brendan McNamara stated in an interview that Rockstar might use MotionScan, the ground-breaking facial animation used in L.A. Noire, in GTA V. McNamara also stated Rockstar was "more than welcome to use MotionScan" for the project, suggesting that Team Bondi is open to another partnership, despite problems that arose during the development of L.A. Noire.

Likelihood: Poor
Not only did the original quote sound like wishful thinking on McNamara's part, but Team Bondi has faced no shortage of turmoil since the original story, including reports of the developer owing more than $1 million in unpaid wages to its employees, and news from earlier this month that the company is shutting down. There's no word yet as to what will happen to Team Bondi's MotionScan, but even if Rockstar did buy the tech in the liquidation of the company's assets, we doubt the studio will use it in GTA V.



Rumor #3: GTA V Goes Overseas
Various rumors on the internet have suggested that the next GTA will take place in an overseas location, with London and Tokyo being the top possibilities.

Likelihood: Fat Chance
At least not for GTA V. All of the rumors of the newly announced sequel taking place in an overseas location read more like wishful thinking than actual reporting. Additionally, Entertainment Weekly's recent interview with Dan Houser makes the possibility sound even more unlikely. When asked about another international edition of GTA, Houser had this to say: "We go backwards and forwards on it. There are very interesting crime stories and other stories you can tell about anyplace in the world. Whether that would work with Grand Theft Auto when so much about Grand Theft Auto is about the Americana, about the American media is something I'm not sure about." While Rockstar may continue consider going international for a future installment, something tells us it's a little late to be choosing a location for GTA V.




Rumor #4: GTA V Invades The Real World
Another persistent rumor suggests that GTA V will be a more realistic take on the series, taking place in a real U.S. city instead of a fictional location. Los Angeles is the city of choice, with a bizarre post on VG247 specifically fingering Hollywood for the next adventure.

Likelihood: Doubtful
Most of these rumors point to Rockstar scouting real-world locations as evidence for a shift towards realism. However, given the studio's attention to detail, why wouldn't Rockstar look at real cities when designing a fictitious one? All of the previous GTA locations have been heavily influenced by American cities, and we're betting GTA V won't be any different but a game can't be a parody and realistic at the same time, and we doubt Rockstar would choose authenticity over the wild satire that has made the series so popular thus far.



Rumor #5: Coming In 2012
Various reports and speculations have pointed to a 2012 release date for GTA V, including a listing from a German GameStop, and inside sources friendly to GameSpot.

Likelihood: Hopefully!
We don't know when GTA V is going to come out it seems doubtful Rockstar would announce a sequel now if it wasn't going to be ready until 2013, but it's not impossible. More than anything, we hope GTA V will come out in 2012 just because it means we'll be able to play it sooner.

However these rumors shake out, one thing's for sure: answers are coming soon. In addition to officially announcing GTA V, Rockstar also revealed that a trailer will be available on November 2, just a week from tomorrow.
