Should the Gta 6 map be huge or small ?

Gta 6 Map size  

28 members have voted

  1. 1. How big should Gta 6’s map be ?

    • A map that is quality over quantity
      23
    • A huge map like The Crew 2 that is shallow
      5

Now I know what your thinking, but let me persuade you a little bit.

 

Less is More correct ?

 

Because I’ve noticed a trend with open world games. “Make a big world with a ton of collectibles and lifeless.” Look at Assassins creed Oydessy for example. The world is huge, but it doesn’t have as many unique locations. While in Red Dead 2 the world feels alive and is pretty diverse.

asassins-creed-athens-vs-alexandria-map-

Another example is the crew 2. While this game might have the whole U.S. the game has barely any content. You might think “Oh in the crew I can drive or fly from New York to Miami.” But the world feels completely lifeless so maybe from a visual perspective it looks amazing, but once you dig deeper in you find nothing in it.

 

Who cares if the world is huge in The Crew it’s a shallow world. All the huge map is a puddle with no depth to it. In fact The Crew 2 feels even worse than the original Crew even though it was only on Current-Gen consoles.

If Gta 6 was a huge map with Liberty City, Vice City then the whole San Andreas(includes Las Ventures, San Fierro and Los Santos.) it might not be as alive as maybe 2 cities would be. Plus the interiors as well too. I just don’t want Gta VI to feel like a dead world to me.

 

Even for Red Dead 2 the map isn’t that much larger than Gta 5’s map, and that’s not a complaint it’s a compliment. Rockstar didn’t say “we should make the largest open world out there.” They said instead “How can we make a world and get the player immersed into the world.”

 

Just Cause 3 and 4 are 3 times larger than Gta 5. But the games don’t have as much content as Gta 5 does. 

 

So so for Gta 6 I think Rockstar should either make it twice the size of Gta 5 or make the world as large as they think it should be. I don’t want to feel like I’m playing in a shallow open-world like I’m in the Crew or something.

Quality > Quantity. I want cities at least as detailed as HD Liberty City and Los Santos, I don't care about the overall amount of square kilometers.

Quantity+Quality. 

I never weigh one over the other. They both work together to make great things happen. If each is abandoned I'll be pissed. I think you should have had an option for both in the poll. I can't vote for any of those options. San Andreas' map had a brilliant combination of the two and based on the progression R* have made since the beginning of the HD era,it's time to go for multiple cities and varied environments. R* can pull it off with quality as well. 

 

I just repeat this from another post I made a while back. 

-It's definitely a feature that I miss from the SA. no GTA has given me the sense of "travel" and "progress" like SA and I miss it. It also saves the game from being a boring sh*tfest. Cause multiple cities means different cultures and that means newer activities, variety and storyline material that stops the game from being repetitive -

Without any shadow of a doubt it has to be Quality over Quantity. I mean we can already have a huge map with a large city as GTA V proves. Yes, Red Dead Redemption II has a huge map, but Saint Denis is about the size of Broker at a quick estimate, so it's not a fair comparison given the fact that GTA cities. If I made a quick total estimate I'd say all settlements in RDRII are about the size of HD Liberty City. 

 

GTA V was also last-gen, so maybe we can get even bigger with the next game. But if size comes into it at the cost of detail and life, then I know that quality comes first. I think of all companies though, Rockstar can easily pull off both. With the leaps and bounds made in this generation of games, Rockstar will probably give us GTA on the next-gen systems and make it even bigger than we could imagine.

Quality > quantity. Big maps aren't as impressive as they used to be now that technology has advanced so much consoles can easily handle large open worlds. What's harder to achieve IMO is the right balance whether what's contained within that world is actually interesting.

 

Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Just Cause 2 etc all have big maps, but they're shallow as f*ck once the "wow" factor wears off. Ideally it would be better to have the best of both worlds, but if I had to choose only one than quality anytime like GTA IV's Liberty City which is still the best/most detailed singular city in the series.

I'd like a map 4 times as big as GTA V, if possible featuring a city nearly as big as the entire map of V and various smaller towns scattered over the rest of the map which I'd like to be rather rural apart from the big city.

I am going to say that GTA VI will be possibly 2x that of GTA V map but with all the positions that R has been hiring for the past few years, this game is going for a lot of quality also. GTA VI, like RDR2, will revolutionize the industry once again. Bully 2 will not be a slouch either lol

Hmmm nice bike

I don't think the map has to be huge or small. It'll probably be bigger than V, but it won't be the size of Edler Scrolls: Daggerfall. I'd much rather have a detailed map with stuff actually going on, an area that isn't a lifeless world or something akin to a movie set.

I would of course prefer quality over quantity, but I think it is possible to have a high-quality large map.

If GTA 6 allowed us to enter random buildings, then that's a much bigger quality invested.

I would favor the quality more. Although the way the vote options are worded now, it's kind of a loaded question, the balance is also important.

Quality over quantity up to a certain point. The map still has to be a decent size, though beyond that, I'd prefer more interactivity through side missions than a bigger map.

Smaller maps are better because the interesting stuff is more condensed. I'd like to see something a tad bigger than V with two cities. No GTA aside from SA had such satisfying planes in my opinion purely because they felt useful. You could fly from Los Santos to Las Venturas and flying to other towns actually made sense, instead of flying to nowhere. Planes can't exactly be landed everywhere.

Both. Either on their own would suck.

 

Needs to be something on a level with SA where great details meets an enormous map. I actually think GTA 4 was more successful map-wise, it may have been a one boring city, but at least they didn't hide the fact that it's one city. In GTA 5 they pretended to make a big map - and that left us with a motorway leading from Los Santos to... Los Santos.

 

Give me medium size, filled with a medium level of details. And different cities and terrain. One piece of land with he same terrain and architecture will be boring.

Huge and with a quality would be my choice. Actually, quality is definitely not an afterthought for R* when it comes to map design. It's their brand. I am really looking forward to seeing a multi-city map, so think of two large-sized cities and one medium-sized town to travel between, including all the natural barriers (i.e. mountain ranges, hills, plains and rivers) that separate them. In contrast, they can work on a map on the size of IV's LC and turn the focus to making it extremely detailed from a visual and behavioral point of view, including how pedestrians are generated and their AI system/schedule.

A game with cars and planes? HUUUGE map please. Despite how "deep" the small map is, I just feel it will be experienced and fully explored faster. In a game like GTA:SA, with large areas of desert and "forest" with cottages and points of interests scattered here and there, it feels like a never ending exploration. I'm literally now playing GTA:SA and while driving around the countryside still, after 15 years, I find areas "I've never seen before" small and insignificant areas, but still.

 

I know many people hate long driving distances, but when I play GTA and drive from the far south to far north or from the city to countryside, I really wanna feel and "acknowledge" a long distance. It really bothered me how Trevor was supposedly living "in the desert, far away from the city" because it wasn't that far away, you can pretty much see the desert from the Winewood hills (in GTA V) I would've preferred a long ass "boring" country road sided by "boring" empty fields between the city and Sandy Shores.

Why not just remaster LS again and add LV and SF. Then for VII they could do VC. The sub title could be VIICE CIITY.

Quality, I played Just Cause 2 and it has a gigantic map but I could just fall asleep playing it because there's not much to do.

San Andreas was fifteen years ago, and VI hasn't even been announced or leaked. R* is more than able to do both.

The voting options are biased trash. Why does a large map have to be shallow? And why would a smaller map always have to have quality? I'm not voting unless you make it neutral.

But I'll still say I want it to be a huge.

V map size is decent enough for me...If it were multiplied by 2.

 

So there, gimme San Fierro along with Northern San Andreas, then give me a bridge or a connected land mass to Southern San Andreas and Los Santos, and I'll be very happy.

 

In fact, seeing as that's what R* pulled off with RDR2 in comparison to RDR1, I think it's a safe bet that they're doing it for the next GTA game.
