Whats wrong with everyone*,
Since IV in 2008 we have got TLAD, TBOGT, CTW and RDR.
I hear what you saying but when you think of it like this... One GTA city in potentially 5 years?
In the III era (not saying it's the same), in 5 years, we've had Vice City, Los Santos, San Fierro, Las Venturas, Liberty City... OK, 3 of those cities were in one game but, ya know?!
I don't mean to sound like a cry baby. It's all up to Rockstar how they like to go about business. I just hoped that we'd have a semi-regular trend of GTA games coming out every 2 or 3 years but after San Andreas the series has become irregular and even more unpredictable. The gap between SA and IV was big but forgiven due to technical issues such as building a new engine and the leap from last gen to current gen consoles. Then we kind of got confused as to whether this DLC (EFLLC) was going to be considered an add-on or a single game - such as San Andreas or Vice City. The DLC was a very generous add-on but not a stand-alone game for me as it's set in the same city.
Can anyone remember reading that piece about the guy who worked on the III era games and left and gave a tell-all account of the work ethic over at Rockstar North?
I'm very happy with Rockstars work. I'm just not really happy about their inconsistency. I grateful to have experienced their work but there's only so much secrecy and marketing PR - or a least thats the twist people are putting on it, that I can take.
It's actually become a nusuiance to wait for a game I don't even know when is coming out. Yes, it's self-inflicted but I sometimes I wish I became more obsessed with a game that I know will generally be released in X amount of time. In my time of waiting, I've gone exploring other genres of games and have really enjoyed them but I'm still left wanting a GTA type game and nothing comes close to previous Rockstar North work which is a bit dissapointing. If GTA ceased to exist, there's nothing on the market that would really fill the gap to their/my standard
