| Not so Gouranga...True Crime SOLA had a 240 sq mile rendition of LA. Yes there were a lot of repetitive buildings but all the same . |
LS in V is a sh*tty cut down, corners cut , lowest common denominator pleasing shambles. LS is around 3 maybe 4 sq miles at most. What a f*cking joke. In other words, its about the size of a town of perhaps 20 000 people...not several million.
Most folk like the size of the GTA maps, this is the biggest map they have ever made. I used to be young and would possibly think the same way as the thousands of people whining. I now simply think its great, the map will be epic. Countryside looks amazing, everything is way better than San Andreas. Map size is irrelevant, how many times do you play LA Noire or true crime or just cause 2. Most people probably never.
I used to play it for about a day then quit it, they are boring empty worlds with no life in them, no interaction.
We have not even seen the tip of the iceberg with GTA V, the map is not fully shown, but is only one part of the advances. Such as:
New mission styles
San Andreas style RPG elements
So many whiners, but I'm not bitching to you mate, just so happens this is my post directed to all haters, just so happens to come in this thread.
Think of it this way Manhattan has over 150 Numbered streets. LC had at most 40 from top to bottom, in other words in real life you would only be 7 streets north of Empire State bld if you were on 40th street Manhattan.
Scaling it is way better, the game will deliver in spades.
Bravo to everyone's contributions in the thread. Every page is brilliant, read it all. Bring on GTA V
