well I loved those ragdoll physics (SR) which I am sure will be featured in IV but way better, The Godfather wasn't imo a ripoff but they could use it's aiming system (you could aim to a specific person and then choose manually in which part you wanted to shoot: head, shoulder, balls/nuts,knee etc.) it was the best I've seen inlove.gif also from The Godfather they should use the hand-to-hand combat system inlove.gif and the extortion thing, from Driver Parallel Lines they should use the customization (cars) and shooting-from-the-car system in which you could use almost any firearm and shoot it from the comfort of your seat cool.gif you should be able to steal safes (The Godfather, SR) and bank heists, and strangling someone with a string from behind (The Godfather) hope my suggestions were useful. as you can see I'm also a big Godfather fan biggrin.gif

Okay, most of us have played GTA rip offs. Some are good, and some suck, but most of them have some good ideas that were not incorporated into GTA games. Well, IMO R* has a fundamental right, and perhaps obligation to "steal back." What are the best features from other games that should be added to GTA IV?

One game that ripped of GTA big time, and shamelessly, was Saint's Row. It's a good game, but the degree of unoriginality of this game is truly staggering. Anyhow, I would love to see a few things from SR brought to the GTA series:

- "Ragdoll" physics. When I blow a guy away with a shotgun I love how he falls back. Also, when people are hit with cars, they flip around... very cool feature.

- Left trigger pistol whipping/rifle butting. I love pistol whipping with a handgun. That sick metalic *crunch* sound makes me giddy. I also derive a lot of satisfaction knocking a guy down to the ground with butt end of my shotgun before giving him a Dick Cheney moneyshot (shotgun blast to the face).

- Chop shop and hitman activities for money. There is a lot of room for improvement here from SR.

Other ideas from GTA ripoff games? What features should GTA IV incorporate?

omfg omfg all of the rip offs sucked!!!! the only good thing would be better car explosions, and on saints row you were in a street gang and you could be white how lame is that ahahahah and the white people acted black

I would like to see much more interaction with the peds on the streets. it also would be nice to be able to buy cars like in true crime: NY and in the trunk of these cars you could store wapons and other stuff like in true crime and scarface.

I'd like to see there something similar to a factions mood in mercenaries. That would work well with gangs. Imagine you get some gang pissed on you, but they always shoot at you when you're in their teritorry and you would like to sort that out by pissing the other gang, which you don't mind to be pissed on you - like you usualy kill them in second or just don't like or don't like their area or whatever. So you would help the gang number one during some gang shootout and it would improve their mood towards you, so they would shoot at you no longer. You could actualy play with gangs like a cat with mouse.

I've always loved the Film Director in Driver games. Didn't they cut it from Driver 4 though? Never played it.

Anyway, it'd be nearly impossible to implement, but it would be brilliant to make a reply of your chases with police, topped off with shoot-outs, etc.

Brilliant. But like I said, it'd be hard to add without taking away from the GTA feel.

Actually, thats a great idea.
You've got a mobile phone, remember? And according to quite a few magazines, you will have the cam on it.
Maybe you will actually have a video cam, on which you can record! Makes sense, doesn't it?
Then you can save it, blablabla, just like a normal phone.

What do you think? blush.gif

I think the thing I loved the most about SR over GTA was the aiming system. I always had problems with shooting on the PS2, hence why most of my GTA time came from the PC versions, but the system SR implemented was great fun.

It is eerie knowing R* have used most of the ideas in this thread, that was posted back in April.

Maybe they are watching us, or maybe just a coincidence?

1. Replays! Directable replays! - Driver series
2. Better explosions - Mercenaries: Playground Of Distruction (havn't played the new one)
3. A diguise system using vehicles - Mercenaries
4. Cars that deform - Burnout (yeah, it's not a GTA clone, but it would be so cool!)
5. Drug selling - Scarface

The rip-off: GUN
The feature: Scalping
How can we implement it into GTAIV: In one mission. On once occasion. You must scalp another criminal and deliver the body part to his boss as a warning. Have it in the game too much and Thompson and his misguided groupies will be baying for Rockstar's blood. But do it once and it will be a nice addition to the game. As long as it isn't cleaned up. Scalping must be a really messy affair. Let's see some gore.

Not true. Destroy All Humans! had a good script. It was rather funny in places. So that's something I suppose.

People need to stop asking for drug use like in SR. I think that is the gayest feature of all. If ya want to do drugs do them in real life. Any way my feature has already been confirmed> the duck and cover system like in gears of war.

And, yes, I know Bully and Crackdown aren't ripoffs since the teams are or used to be connected to R*. But they're all sandbox-y, so, err, yea.

How is Crackdown connected to R*? And I say "just let me play the game!"

the person who is head of realtime world is one of the original people who divised the GTA franchise and used to work for rockstar, so it is connected in a way

I like the way things are shown the HUD in saints row as it marks out the route for you and you don't end up going down the wrong road.

Yea SR did have a great hud. They also I had a few cool car mods I liked. The knock off lambo was the best car by far.

I suppose they ripped that off The Getaway. But yeah, I'd like to pistol whip people in GTA, although brass knuckles kinda do the same thing already.

But we don't have the crunch noise...
