So we know the game as a whole is going to be bigger than GTA IV, so who cares?

A good number of people care, hence why there are threads and polls about the city's map size only and NOT the whole game map size.

It's not really that hard to understand unless your incredibly stupid and cannot read.

I kinda feel bad for you, if that's all you took out of my post. If you read it slowly, and calm yourself down first, you might notice I'm actually aware this thread is about the city size of LS compared to LC. All I'm saying is for anyone who's not going to buy the game because the city size is similar to LC, well that's a pretty pathetic reason to do so, when you've seen everything else this game has to offer. Did you not buy 4 either, because the map looked too small?

Again, no need to say that.

Of course everyone will buy the game. No need to bring up pointless rhetoric. You know people will buy the game.

Just because people are criticizing, complaining or moaning about the size of LS DOES NOT mean they will not buy the game. You'd be very stupid to think anyone would actually not buy the game for that reason. It's a deep discussion and critique of something, that is simply all it is.

Whoa, the common sense of some people in here beggars belief.

I just don't see the need for bitching over a trivial detail like the size of the city. When people are playing the game, I think it will be the last thing on their minds. There is clearly so much to do and see in this game that a minute detail shouldn't get people outrageously upset.

This is forum.

But I did not realize that people are not allowed to express their views or debate and argue about things on forum. Never realized the meaning of a forum changed overnight sarcasm.gif

If the blueprint map gives us anything, its pretty much the full extent of Los Santos itself. It seems to be edged by areas of sea, mountains and countryside all around.

I'm happy with the overall size of the city, but not convinced by the relative sizes of the different neighbourhoods. R* seems to have made areas like Vinewood and Rockford Hills quite generous in size but the whole south central area doesn't look much bigger than downtown, and there's very little on the east side of the LS river. Not sure how these areas are gonna give a convincing sense of urban sprawl. Guess we'll know when we play it...

I think it's just fine. People expecting it to be exactly the same as real life LA. I think once you actually play the game you'll see just how big the map really is.

Yes. Size doesn't mean sh*t. A game can have a huge city, but it can still be lifeless and boring. Los Santos may be smaller than LC, but it could be more detailed and full of life than LC was.

I agree with this and I think a lot of other people feel the same way when looking at the blueprint map.
A lot of people though, can't tolerate any sort of critique and make apologies (e.g. size doesn't mean anything, you can't expect a real life LA counterpart).

I think it just looks smaller cause it's not a city like LC, LC was full of skyscrapers, you weren't able to see the horizon cause it was full and tight.

LS is much more open and all, maybe the city is really smaller, but not that much, I think it will be fine and the thing is that the city is the smallest thing about the whole map, don't forget the countryside^^

But you know, we'll see, I think at least I will be happy with the size smile.gif

It looks just a bit bigger than Los Santos from San Andreas.
So of course I am disappointed. Los Angeles is bigger than New York. Shouldn't Los Santos be bigger than Liberty City?

Really the only people that are going to be disappointed are those that don't care at all about the countryside, and I have to say I pity them a little.

Most people who will buy and play the game most likely have never been to L.A .
They don't really care if it doesn't look like a proper rendition of the real city but they care for a detailed city with a focus on interesting places and not countless blocks of "sprawl".

Don't want countless blocks of sprawl, just a convincing sense of sprawl (maybe it will feel like that when playing the game, I hope).

It's 90% or more of Liberty City...It's far more than "a bit bigger than Los Santos in San Andreas".

I wonder how the poll results would change if people bothered to take some comparisons?

First of all, it is Raavi with double A and a single R, shouldn't be to difficult to type. Second, I'm not moaning I'm merely stating my honest opinion, which ostensibly differs from yours, which is fine as we both live in a free country. And opinions are there to differ.
