And anybody who keeps saying sh*t like "they showed us more grass, hammerhead sharks, cyotes you're an idiot" so forth. Wow, getting killed by Hammerheads and Cyotes as opposed to Great Whites and Mountain Lions? I guess that's going to add so many hours of new gameplay huh?
Holly hell why do you people even have a brain? Do you even understand what's the reason for this thread and what is being discussed here?
We're not saying there will be Gang(bang) wars, neither more interiors or anything that turns the game into something very different... those might happen but no one is saying it will. The point here is the fact that people still yell that the game is the exact same thing, with just better visuals, in other words another port that converts what runs on old hardware and increases the resolution, textures, fps and amount of assets. That was exactly what IV PC did and have... and that is exactly the same thing that the pessimists or whatever they wanna be called are screaming.
When the facts show that it's nothing like that, it's not just a visuals improvement neither and increment of in-game assets, it's a lot more then that and we know this from a trailer with slightly more then 1 minute.
Now taking into account that we've seen some new/ extra additions it's more then proven that it's not just a port and the additions are quite significant (keep in mind we barely scratched the surface with these few minutes of footage), it's also a fact that the game was so "naked" because of technical limitations, otherwise they would be in the already released version and they seem interested in using all the extra juice they have now. So with this in mind is almost proven that the stupid reason why BS, CB and the hotdog stands were empty was the hardware limitations, I know they aren't that heavy but they had to cut here and there, so they decided if they removed those NPC's and all the code related to it they could get more resources for other things more demanding, in situations like these every MB counts.
So what is being discussed here is the simple fact that the game is not a refurbished LG version, but something with a lot of extra things, things that improve the immersion and consequently the game experience, it's completely ridiculous that in 2014 platforms like PC and CG consoles with the hardware they have, to deliver an empty open world game, if they do/ did that would be just laziness and nothing else.
So if we seen new animals, new NPC's and increased numbers of them, vegetation covering the huge landscape preserving the view in the distance, new light system, new filters and effects without forgetting that it seems that each car was individually modeled to its own brand and HUD style, the way NPC's interact with objects (the NPC that reacts to the big truck something that didn't happen before), along many other things... it's rational to think that this si just the tip of the iceberg.
And in fact it makes more sense to be that way then anything else... they wanna sell the game again not only to new costumers but to the same that already gave them almost 2 billions, so they need to give them strong reasons to spend more money they they spent before instead of moving on to new titles. If they didn't change anything other then graphics the only reason people could have to spend money again is the GTAO, so the SP also needs to have something worthy... for those that already finished the game they need very good reasons to play it all over again and not only for the visuals.
Anyone have the right to his opinion, but don't say things that are more then obvious proven by the facts in front of all of us, thats not a matter of opinion, that is pure ignorance.
