"GTA V" can surpass the legendary "GTA San Andreas" according to Rockstar Games Technical Support

The lack of news about expected Grand Theft Auto V may be annoying fans, entreanto today apparently had a novelty that will cheer everyone. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

Well, that's what we're hoping for. I think that any series that doesn't expect to surpass previous entries is a series worth abandoning. GTA V should be stellar.

I guess sales will tell this tale...

Surpass San Andreas sales wise? Not so sure.
Surpass San Andreas quality wise? Could happen, likely.

I just really hope the customization from San Andreas is back and also THE CHEATS!!!!!!! DON'T FORGET THE AWESOME CHEATS!!!!!! Lol

Isn't SA only topped by GT:4 sales wise? It'll be hard to top that. Besides, sells doesn't determinate the quality of a game. The sales aregument is almost like views on youtube. Juston Biebers song Baby must be the best song ever made couse it has 600 million views.

GTA 5 will only be better if it will have everythig GTA SA had, and more! + big landscapes and mountains, lots of water and beaches! I remember I had so much fun outside the city! the only reason I dont play GTA4 is lack of nature!
Chris558  +   1116d ago
Baby has actually 780 million views bro
Jaces  +   1116d ago
I'm just glad I get to head back into nature. The first time I rode that mountain bike off the top of Mt. Chiliad with a parachute in tow was the greatest feeling I've had in a GTA game.

It's great to get away from the city sometimes, change of scenery always makes it fun. That's why I consider San Andreas the greatest GTA game to date.

I hope GTA 5 bring back some of the features that was in San Andreas.

as a hardcore gta fan,words cannot describe how much i want Grand Theft Auto V

Just started playing Ballad of Gay Tony today. WOW! Idk what Rockstar was thinking! Luis' storyline should have been the main 40 adventure and Niko's story should have been condensed to 10 hour DLC.

If GTAV bases itself off of the fun, humor, and excess of BOGT rather than Niko's serious tale of revenge/deception, GTAV will be a guaranteed masterpiece.
ape007  +   1117d ago
yep but imo niko is the best gta character to date
neoMAXMLC  +   1117d ago
Agreed 100%
Ballad of Gay Tony knocked GTAIV out of the park.
Pintheshadows  +   1116d ago
It looks alot nicer as well. I was amazed at how crisp it looked compared to 4 and TLAD.
LOGICWINS  +   1116d ago
^^Yeah, I thought it ws just me. There was a slight(but noticable) bump in graphical quality and character animations in BOGT.
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   1117d ago
No, Niko was by far the worst GTA character. Why make a game in which there is a tonne of killing and other nefarious acts and give it a main character who doesn't want to be doing any of it and spends the whole game complaining about it.
HK6  +   1117d ago
xplo  +   1117d ago
You're half right.

The best character was Tommy Vercetti. First, he was a fun guy (you know, as long as you were on his good side) with a great sarcastic sense of humor. Second, and more importantly, he had INITIATIVE. Less than halfway through Vice City he starts building his own criminal empire. A lot of the missions you do are written like he WANTS to do these things, like they're going to build up his power or something. And during the last mission you find out that the entire game has been a long revenge scheme against Sonny (who set him up years ago). He was NEVER trying to expand Sonny's business - he was in it for himself the whole time.

So if he's the best character, the worst is CJ. Yeah, I know, you can make him fat and cover him in tattoos. So what? He spends the whole game being pushed around and told what to do, always reacting to other characters. He has no idea how to save his neighborhood, build up the GSF, beat the crooked cops, free his brother, or anything else. In short he's a fucking idiot, and he stumbles blindly into nearly every success and partnership he has.

Where does that leave Niko? Well, if he had the same depth that CJ did, he would be the worst, because there's nothing worse than playing a game about being a criminal when the game is constantly wringing its hands over how awful crime is and reminding you that Niko doesn't want to do any of the things you're making him do. Niko's saving grace is that his character actually does have some depth, and that makes him sort of interesting.
SolidStoner  +   1116d ago
You have to admit that Niko had smartest comments and philosophy compared to older GTA games in cut scenes (older characters didn't even talk!)
Dee_91  +   1116d ago
atleast niko could talk :/

Bring back that essence San Andreas had!
GTA IV was horrible.
tachy0n  +   1117d ago
agree with you mate! i would really love to go explore the desert, the forest and all that just like in GTA SA ^.^
omarzy  +   1117d ago
Even though GTA4 was complete crap, i still have high hopes for this game.
Monkeycan8  +   1117d ago
But it wasn't..
DFogz  +   1117d ago
But it was.
Knight_Crawler  +   1117d ago
Dude GTA 4 was otter crap...it felt like i was playing a dating sim game, hell even R* knows this.

Here is hoping GT goes back to its root and forget this trying to be a real life mafia dram game with people calling u 24-7.
dcortz2027  +   1116d ago
GTA IV was overrated, and yes, GTA IV is one of the worst GTA games in the series. Here's hoping GTA V is more like the GTA games last gen and not like GTA IV.
GamerElite  +   1117d ago
You don't say
omarzy  +   1117d ago
I should have said expectations instead of hopes. Would have made more sense in the context i put it on.
Zeixama  +   1117d ago
It wasn't complete crap, but it was crap.
baldulf  +   1117d ago
GTA IV was great until the bank mission (which is the highest peak of the game)

After that it becomes too repetitive. Vice City is still my favourite of the series.
Knight_Crawler  +   1117d ago
DTA 4 was crap... first GTA game that I did not finish.
ape007  +   1117d ago
imo gta 4 is one of the greatest games of all time, yep it wasn't as crazy as san andreas or vice city but the amount of quality, detail and polish is second to non
Knight_Crawler  +   1117d ago
WTF...I guess different strokes for different folks.

But to me GTA 4 was really boring. I felt like the missions were repetitive and the customization was very limited.
RXL  +   1117d ago
of course they'd say that lol

you won't hear a company bash their own product..

this is marketing 101..

still can't wait for this game...

if it's better than San Andreas or not..ima play the fudge out that pucker..
enkeixpress  +   1117d ago
Rockstar Technical support don't know sh*t... lol, just a load of foreign people who don't even play video games.. just want their wages.

of course R* want it to be better than San Andreas.. duh..

I was gonna say that. Since when does tech support know anything about the tech they're supporting?
CalvinKlein  +   1117d ago
that would be nice. I though gta 4 would have been alot better without that crappy cell phone and every gangster trying to have a bromance with nico the cold blooded killer.

They were going for realism but do they really think I will beleive in a gangster that kills a bunch of people goes bowling 100 times as much as I do, an upstanding citizen? Also right after I save his brother his approval rating of me goes down because I dont go bowling with him or some crap, maybe he wanted to go get some icecream or something, maybe a balloon.

"maybe he wanted to go get some icecream or something, maybe a balloon".

That one got a chuckle. Bubbles for you.

I just want more and more of the euphoria engine.

Idk about this one. San Andreas was one of the best games of all-time

No one asked Kanye's opinion
ninjabake  +   1116d ago
Hahaha! "Imma let you finish..."
TheSaint  +   1117d ago
So R* are in agreement that GTA4 was pants?

Otherwise why would they compare it to SA rather than 4??
bahabeast  +   1116d ago
nothing to do with sales. gta san andrea was just the most enjoying out of all. rpg elements and soo much activity to get into. sr3 reminded me of san andreas some what but im realli lookin forward to gta 5.

i work for the government now soo $$$$$ baby cnt wait for first check imma buy a huge tv for my ps3 :)
smokey_rasta  +   1116d ago
I highly doubt any GTA will ever surpass GTA San Andreas. It will be a great achievement if this one can.
Sugreev2001  +   1116d ago
Everyone expects that and I hope that statement delivers.I,for one,have never been disappointed with a GTA game....though GTA IV almost came close,but it's dlc got that fixed,particularly TBoGT.
Bowzabub  +   1116d ago
The music is very important..GTA:SA & GTA:VC are considered the best GTAs made.. Soundtrack is key. And San Adreas hit that era right on the head. Same as Vice. Agreed?
YodaCracker  +   1116d ago
GTA IV is the highest-rated GTA game to date (and the highest rated game of the last decade), so it is definitely considered the best GTA title. There's really no argument to be made against that. As for the soundtrack, VC and SA took place during a certain time period in the past. Rockstar got to look back and choose all the perfect songs that characterized those time periods and brought great nostalgia. Unfortunately, a GTA game set in modern times will never be able to have that same, almost magical effect with its soundtrack.

Well, it should. Every new installment in a series should try to outscore the former, that's exactly what we expect. GTA IV was a good game but it just didn't have the fun factor that San Andreas had and we're hoping for a return to the witty, comical style.

I think GTA should not take itself too seriously, betrayed war veteran story was kind of too dark for a game like GTA, the story of San Andreas was not a child story as well but there were just too much humor in it to keep it funny at the same time. Maybe it was just the setting that made the game as enjoyable as it was. I miss the bcycles, the sand, the boat races, being able to go to gym and work out, getting your hair cut the way you want. Maybe it was just CJ, he was the best possible character to star in a game like GTA.

I have high hopes for this game though, going back to San Andreas will be like taking a ferris wheel ride, there's no way you can't enjoy it regardless of how old you are.

It needs the right balance of humor and serious story vice city did a great job

I don't know about this one fellas. I maybe in the minority but I think that gamers have moved on. I am not saying that it will flop but I don't think it will as successful as the previous versions.
claud3  +   1116d ago
It will be excellent and a special gta of this generation. As its the last of this generation.. but we the gamers will judge it
Kos-Mos  +   1116d ago
Legendary? Aaaaaaah, for teens. I understand.
dragonrage00  +   1116d ago
I personally didnt care much about GTA before 4 because the poor auto aim shooting mechanics were total game breakers for me. I hope I can give it a shot someday. I finished GTA4 with auto targeting turned off and still think it was a very mediocre system, so theres a ton of improvement to be done there. I enjoyed GTA4 as a whole but I think its EXTREMELY overrated. I played very little of GTA:SA, but the amount of ppl that loved it is astonishing. Even if they never completed it, they would play it just to fool around the city using cheat codes and unleashing chaos on the environments. Theres something amusing about that.Doubt GTA5 will archieve the sale level of popularity.
axerated  +   1116d ago
All I hope is that it has an expanded version of the bodybuilding aspect from San Andreas, that's the shit that got me into weight training in the first place
