| I hope the map is insanely big, 10-20 real time hours across. I'm not really into the mission thing, though it's a great story and worth playing. I care more for a bigger world to explore and lots of things to do in it. Even if some of the missions are 10-15 real time hours long, it would make them more fun, for me at leased, as long as it is possible to save a few times and to abandon a mission if you want to do something else. For instance, you start as a small time crook. The distances are very local and missions are short. The bigger you get the more likely it is that you have to travel greater distances as your connections are more wide spread.|
But I doubt V is anywhere near that. I can imagine it's between twice and twice and a half the size of IV, which wasn't really that big.
A massive map would be great... but I think the scale you have mentioned is slightly "OTT".
I'm a big fan of exploring the map and soaking up everything it has to offer, but I don't want them to focus too much time on "cramming the map" instead of making the story something special.
After all, the story is the main attraction (at least for most of us, I'm guessing) and that will be what the game is ultimately judged on.
Seen some great threads so far though (only my first post) about aviation, new extras, missions etc. and can only hope that there is someone at R* taking notes. Would be a massive shame to miss out on some of the suggestions that have been posted.
