| Who else thinks this will be the damn best GTA map to date? It's the dream map I've always wanted. I thought San Andreas was good back in the day but my god, this time around, the mountains and everything are so much more life like and detailed. I'm sorry I don't have much to add to the thread but I love watching you guys come up with ideas. Thanks so much for making this wait so much more interesting. You guys are very smart. |
This game in general is the dream game I've always wanted. Going all the way back to playing San Andreas for the first time. I thought it was fun, but I always thought they didn't do LA justice (of course, I might be being a little biased because I live in LA). Then I played GTA IV, and was blown away by how even without ever actually being to NYC in real life, I really felt like I was right inside a living, breathing city like how the real life thing must be. Ever since then, I always thought that if they made a game with the same setting as San Andreas, but with the graphics, details, and overall atmosphere that GTA IV had, it would be the greatest game I've ever played. And now all these years later, I'm just a few months away from finally getting to play that game.
And yes, alot of that does have to do with how the map will be presented. It's really amazing to think about all of the variety we'll be getting. Starting out with the busy downtown which is located pretty much right in the center of everything. Surrounding that we'll have suburbs, beaches, hills, and plenty we probably don't even know about yet. Then going even further away from the city, there will be desert, mountains, wilderness, large lakes, rivers, and assorted small towns scattered in between. Red Dead Redemption being as great of a game as it was really makes me excited for this aspect of the game. Because knowing how different it feels to be in areas away from civilization, while still having the sense that anything can happen out there, was a very drastic change from the fast paced happenings of the city in GTA. Now we'll have this game, which will combine the best of both worlds. Oh, and then there's the part where they decided that still wasn't enough, and they decided to let us explore underwater, which is another aspect of the game I'm really interested in. Add in all of the vehicles, weapons, and other fun toys we'll have, and I truly believe we're in for a gaming experience we'll never forget.
I apologize for the long post. I know none of this added anything to what this thread is intended for, but I just felt like sharing my thoughts on why I'm looking forward to this game so much.
