You should play GTA4. San Andreas was very very good, but 4 was better and the best in the series. I lent my copy to my brother in law, and last time I asked for it back he wouldn't hand it over, some excuse about not having finished it I miss it. Getting drunk was excellent.

I still play GTA4 in free roam with my buddies from time to time and I loved the series... can't wait for GTA5 it will surely be better than the silly looking saints row 3.

Yeah that would be awesome. Just Cause 2 is a really cool game. The size of the gameworld is amazing.

I disagree about IV. It was good, sure. But I HATED the realistic approach Rockstar took with the car handling. I also hate GFWL, which it comes bundled with, and I REALLY hate SecuROM. I have, of course, removed both of these pieces of malware from my copy.


Just wish the paper map was tougher, I'm missing the bottom right corner. :\



My personal hope with V is that they go back to the wackiness and color San Andreas had. If I want a driving sim I'll play Forza, GTA is supposed to be about bonkers sandbox fun. Handbrake turns at 90MPH that work, etc etc etc.

The GTA franchise has generally had semi-realistic handling, San Andreas was the only one where the cars handled like they were from a cheap arcade game. GTA 3 and Vice City were identical to IV (in terms of car handling). One of my friends and I actually just had a discussion about it, so we decided to fire up a PS2 and compare them.

Personally, I thought IV was so much better than any of the previous games, especially with all the intertwined stories between The Lost And The Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony and IV itself.

I agree on the stories, and I really liked Niko Bellic as a character. But I prefer the San Andreas handling style.


Idunno, as long as R* makes it easy for us to mod the handling I won't whine about a funky direction taken. I'd be able to adjust the cars to suit my own tastes much like I did with IV. May not be realistic, but I'll sacrifice realism for fun any day.

I'm glad a new one is coming out but it will never look and feel like gta 4.

Modded that is, the things people have done to gta iv is something unreal. Ice mod for example the game looks life like but needs a high end system to run it because its so demanding. Then more pedestrians mod, makes the game really feel like new york, and better handling where this took the time and used real world specs to make the cars, bikes, and misc act just like there real life counter parts. The list goes on for what have people done to this game, and playing it over with mods is so much more enjoyable and makes you wonder why rockstar didn't just do this in the first place. I'm sure the modding community will be on the ball with 5, but 4 will forever in my eyes be amazing thanks to the modding community.

The only part of that trailer I care about is the Vinewood sign near the end.



San Andreas here we come!


Please, R*. Please put Carl in, if nothing else simply as an easter egg. And The Truth, I definitely want to do more missions for Truth.

Yeah, I saw the trailer earlier today (via reddit), I cannot freaking wait. I hope they have planes, that's what I loved about Vice City.

I hope so too. Los Santos is definitely in if the Vinewood sign is anything to go by, so we should be able to visit.
