I can't believe GTAV is supposed to be bigger than San Andreas, in terms of map size.

 

San Andreas feels a lot huger. I know it might be the draw distance, no but that's not it!

 

Any ideas why San Andreas feels so huge compared to GTAV? I mean even Red Dead Redemption seems bigger to me.

The topic's title is misleading.

For you SA feels bigger. But it isn't maybe it is because you haven't played through it a long long time. Or it IS the draw distance but you are such a big fanboy that you do not realize it.

The cars are too fast, much faster as in IV, this is why you can reach the end of the map pretty fast.

The reason why it feels bigger is because it has more terrain variety (3 different cities) and the draw distance is sh*tty.

This. And San Andreas feels huge because of three cities, but V has bigger map.

It's like in real life, just press slowly, leave it half the R2 if you know what i mean and you'll notice you're going slow. Too bad there are no gears, it would been much more realistic.

I just love shutting San adreas fan boys down. Google is just a click away idiots.

Do the math:

LOS santos and Blaine County: 49 square miles

San Adreas: 13.9 sqaure miles

Red dead redemption map: 28 sqaure miles

GTA 4:  About 7 miles Add the maps except for GTA 5's you get 48.9miles. GTA 5'S MAP IS THE BIGGEST GET OVER IT

So much contradiction haha! On topic you're wrong. San Andreas felt big cause I horrible draw distance, lack of highways and three islands.

San Andreas is in now way shape or form bigger than Los Santos and Blaine County.

Correct. It's actually necessary for them to be this fast to make the map vaguely useable. If they were slower, it would take forever to get from one side to the other. This is the reason I think a lot of people say the handling is dumbed down. They had to make it workable for insterstate driving speeds, but the side effect is that any kind of driving at inner city speeds is a doddle.

Sorry for recycling an old thread but this just made me spit.... doing a google search for a GTA5 road map and found this...

 

 

Didnt RDR just feel bigger because.. idk ... the horse...

 

pretty certain even a Kentucky Saddler wont keep up with anything faster than a Dundreary Regina....

 

try getting into Surfer and seeing how long it takes you to get from simeons docks to north point... RDR map from end to end was about 12 mins ride... But HORSES ARENT AS FAST AS CARS......

 

go figure something smaller will seem bigger when you go slower.... big things seem smaller when speed is considered

 

*Caution, this thread may look dumber than it actually is...

... San An looks like it was built in Sim City 3000.

Not this sh*t again, no...It is not.

 

Play San Andreas again, go ahead, it is a damn good game...No reason you shouldn't play it again.  And then come back and apologize.

No its not bigger... GTA 5 map is twice bigger. GTA SA may feel larger because of the low draw distance and very slow aircraft.
