I think people are right about the scale, I think Rockstar need to make the map "5x bigger" than Red Dead, otherwise we'd get bored of the city life... Although, saying that, 2/3's of the map is "Surrounding Areas", is that going to do it for all of us, will we get bored of this?
I know Rockstar have stated that there will be plenty to do in the surrounding areas, but it could just be a woeful mess. Furthermore, I believe there should be either a second city (possibly DLC) or a couple of fairly large towns out in the sticks. We know from San Andreas that the few little towns that they had dotted around the countryside, were miniscule and to a certain degree, pointless.
My point is, I'm worried that very few towns will ruin the surrounding areas. Traveling across the desert just to get a car would be a nightmare! Can you just imagine the annoyance?!
What CVG are doing is great for the community, so please don't slate their efforts to put together a map. Personally I think they haven't done such a bad job, they're on the right lines in leading it out into the sticks with the highways and the Alamo Sea area.
I'm sure Rockstar will release some more screenshots and possibly a last trailer before the release, which should put together the map. Seriously guys, this game is going to be epic and Rockstar's ambition speaks for itself! It will be 5x times bigger than Red Dead, but we'll have the best of both worlds from GTA V and Red Dead.
