Would you be disappointed if GTA V didn't beat SA?

GTA V will be released 8-9 years after SA was released.

 

We know IV failed to come close to the amount of things (activities) to do after the story compared to SA. But it was excusable given it was their first major game using the RAGE engine. But now, 5 years later, are you expecting V to beat SA in quantity?

 

In such a long time, SA still remains the benchmark for things to do in a GTA game. Would you be disappointed if V still didn't reach SA's level?

 

 

San Andreas:

- fly planes

- parachute

- breaks into military bases

- swim underwater

- jet packs

- riot the city in riot mode

- go around causing distraction in a tank or fighter jet

- start territory wars and gain land

- recruit gang member to help you in wars

- get haircuts, tattoos, piercings

- customize any car

- communicate with pedestrians/ drug dealers

- workout and change body shape

- play basketball

- play pool

- learn to fight/boxing ring

- ride down mountains on a bike/ learn bmx tricks

- drive trains

- buy houses

- export cars for money

- crush cars with a demolishen ball

- gamble in the casino

- place a horse bet

- many missions (such as truck missions)

- go out dancing

- many more weapons to use(flame thrower, shovel and others)

- get a girlfriend

- go around city tagging walls

 

Gta IV:

- use computer or phone

- get drunk

- change clothes

- have girlfriend

- side missions

- play pool or bowling

- MP (although wasn't as popular back when SA was made)

Yea in a way I would be but I'm not hard to please. I've always kinda made my own games after the main story is over in GTA. For example when I finished Vice City and San Andreas I would see how far I could go in the Vigilante missions or in IV I would go to the airport and see how long I could hold off the NOOSE with just using the health/armour/weapons cheat 3 times.

Not really. If GTA didn't beat SA it's probably because it wasn't supposed to. Maybe GTA V wants to take a brand new direction since it begins the fifth era. SA was a great game and since R* does hear some fans out they will be sure to bring some things back from SA.

San Andreas will always be the best GTA. There's no way GTA V is going to beat it.

But yes, it would be nice if it did.

Personally I'm thought Gta 4 was much better than San Andreas.

Yeah possibly.

SA was hell of a lot fun after you finished the storyline.

When I play IV it get's very boring for me especially after I finished most of the side missions.

 

From the looks of the GTA V trailer we saw planes and the countryside so I'm positive Rockstar Games will put SA's features in V and change them around a bit. I hope we can use that Gym that was in the V trailer, it's been ages since I've came across that in GTA.

Some gamers appreciate superior game mechanics, graphics, and physics. Does that answer your question?

I doubt it's actually true IV has fewer things to do than SA. There are many features in SA that aren't in IV but the reverse is also true.

In terms of graphics, and physics... agreed.

 

Everything else, not so much... if GTA4 had shipped with the two DLCs and made it all one game, rather than three separate "bites of the same apple" I probably would agree.

 

GTA4 raised the bar for grit, realism, and handling, now let's revel in them getting back to character customization, thousands of surprises, unlockables, and "Wow" moments.

 

I wont be disappointed, it's a Rockstar Games title, it'll eat up a significant amount of my free time for months if not years to come. smile.gif

The thing we need to remember with GTA SA is that it was alot more light-hearted, as much of the III-era was. It was rags to riches and it would be what Saints Row is today, no I'm not comparing them.

 

GTA IV actually had a ton of stuff to do, it's just that your options are quite limited when surrounded by walls and buildings. But friends actually had a purpose in IV. It was annoying, but I enjoyed being able to take them out and have fun. I think GTA V will be like the Ballad of Gay Tony, combining realism and fun.

 

I won't be dissapointed if it doesn't "beat" San Andreas because I don't look at them as competition. San Andreas will always be in a league of its own. It was in a different era, the content and theme was different and it's a differen't part of GTA's history. I expect GTA V to make history on its own.

 

I don't need it to "beat" San Andreas, in fact I don't want it to. I want to remember and enjoy both games in their own way.

Couldn't have put it better myself. SA was a masterpiece of its time and it's not R* job to recreate it. They will surely bring back a lot of what was SA but while adding other new and exciting things to raise the bar. SA should not be compared to anything nowadays. It's chapter is finished. Now we're on to the next. I expect V to do great things. Just the fact of having the ability to once again breath in a gta game and not be surrounded by just city is good enough reason for me to buy it. There's no way to compare V and SA. 2 different eras.

San Andreas was a different time, back when they still cared. a Golden age for GTA games.

 

If it was made by the R* team today i wouldnt have come out till 2006 and would only have Los Santos.

Hell yes I'd be disappointed, because SA is my least favorite GTA. (Not including 1 and 2, which I finally got around to "playing" after GTA IV... in quotes because I found them to be literally unplayable.)

Honestly I'm more interested in how R* can make these features work than the number of them. This is why I still play GTA IV to this day. Sure it doesn't have as many features, but the features it does have are superbly well done.

 

I don't want a heap of half assed features I'm likely to use once or twice. I utilize everything GTA IV offers even if it isn't much in numbers.

 

This is was what I hope out of GTA V.

They still care just about different things, like cinematic gameplay and realism, I just wish they would do that in a rags to riches type of story that would remind me of the vice city, take over the world feeling I got from it, with the grit, attention to detail, and appetite for actually fun gameplay that those days lacked.

 

Admit it, gta vc running with gta 4 physics, max payne gunplay, forza driving, and rdr graphics make for perfection

Some of you guys are misinterpreting what I'm saying.

I'm asking if you would be disappointed if the amount of activities (after the story) in GTA V is less than what SA had.

 

San Andreas:

- fly planes

- parachute

- breaks into military bases

- swim underwater

- jet packs

- riot the city in riot mode

- go around causing distraction in a tank or fighter jet

- start territory wars and gain land

- recruit gang member to help you in wars

- get haircuts, tattoos, piercings

- customize any car

- communicate with pedestrians/ drug dealers

- workout and change body shape

- play basketball

- play pool

- learn to fight/boxing ring

- ride down mountains on a bike/ learn bmx tricks

- drive trains

- buy houses

- export cars for money

- crush cars with a demolishen ball

- gamble in the casino

- place a horse bet

- many missions (such as truck missions)

- go out dancing

- many more weapons to use(flame thrower, shovel and others)

- get a girlfriend

- go around city tagging walls

 

Gta IV:[\b]

- use computer or phone

- get drunk

- change clothes

- have girlfriend

- side missions

- play pool or bowling

 

Where's GTA IV MP? I had fun playing that then betting on horses, communicating with peds and swimming underwater. confused.gif

 

Actually I had more fun playing MP then just about everything on SA's list so I'd be disappointed if MP wasn't in GTA V.

Wat made u think that GTA 4 was better than San Andreas notify.gif

The reason I liked 4 more was I just had more fun playing it. The story was much more interesting and entertaining, the multiplayer was amazing. I could spend hours playing online with friends whereas with San Andreas I would get board after like an hour. I felt like the map in SA was too large so I'd get really annoyed when I had to travel for long amounts of time for little reward. Lastly I just enjoyed the realism of 4 much more than the SA.

I thought the map size was good in SA, but I agree with you on everything else. icon14.gif

MiamiVice IMO your the coolest Mod in town. I too enjoyed IV's multiplayer and still play it to this day. Now there are some features in SA that I love like the Jetpack, Fighter Jet, and jumping cars and bikes off Mt. Chilliad.

I also hope that R* does not cram too many features into V and focus more on the little things that make GTA the series we all love. It was the attention to detail in IV that keeps me playing it to this day.

Exactly, This isn't Volition we're talking about, it's Rockstar.

We don't need all the distractions that were in SA. I still have fun just cruising around IV from time to time.

In my opinion, if they keep the attention to detail that they had in IV, and tweak the controls a bit, it'll be fine.

After GTA IV came out so bland and bare bones I'm expecting a HUGE improvement with GTA V based upon what they said in their press release.

I always saw the features in San Andreas as R* attempt to cram as much stuff in one game as possible. It allows you more options for you to do in the game, but most of them were pretty bland. As for GTA IV, R* decided to go for a more realistic approach and only added side activities that fit who the protagonist was and what he would likely do in his spare time (work or leisure, regardless). Even with a few activities, they were pretty good.

 

GTA V will likely do the same concept as IV, but hopefully with more stuff to do.

How does bowling fit Nikko?

 

And some activities that are bland to you may be fun to others. The more there is, the more people are satisfied.

 

And SA was realistic. It gave the player much more things to interact with, like would be possible for anyone to do in real life. I think the main reason why SA was and still is so popular was because of the amount of fun you could have doing so many different things. I think if V can beat or match the amount of things we can interact with/activities, aswell as obviously having MP, then it will probably be a top 3 all time best seller on both 360 and PS3.

 

Most people play gta for the freedom and fun of the game. I know so many people who have not finished or played the SA story line, but just enjoy doing random activities in the city. This wasn't possible as much in gta IV and they disliked its lack of fun.

 

 

The Quality of Gta IV mixed with the quantity of SA = the best ever GTA game. icon14.gif

to be honest, drinking was the only activity that i enjoyed in GTA:IV, since you would usually have some seriously funny moments afterwards. everything else seemed pretty boring in comparison. playing online was fun, but SA:MP sh­its all over IV's multiplayer.

 

regardless of the actual amount activities in each game, what San Andreas excelled in was variety. from vehicles and their modifications to the variety of the weapons and the landscape (missions as well, although i wasn't a big fan of either San Andreas or GTA:IV's stories), it simply had more things that you could do and more ways to do those things.
