Longer GTA V story needed, but not repetitive

Marlon Votta:

We recently discussed the length of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V game adding to reports that it will not be as long as its predecessor, with suggestions that it will be similar in size to Red Dead Redemption. From the reactions of fans, we get the impression the length of the last game was not the issue, it was the repetitiveness that surrounded the missions. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It'll be long enough, I'm looking forward to the missions away from the city!! Bikes tractors planes an all that!

I've gotta say, the last game became too tedious for me playing for just over 60 hrs but getting no more than 12% of the story done. The saving system needs to be re-structured in my opinion as it can take 10 or so minutes to get to the beginning of a new mission, longer if you crash a car, get arrested get into street fights etc, don't get me wrong, this all adds to the experience but you should be able to hard save at the very beginning of a new mission too not just from your appartment.

That is why they introduced cabs. Have you tried TBOGT?

I just finished the story mode in 18 hours. This was only my second playthrough of the game and my first since it came out in 2008. Anything over 40 to get through the story and you just suck at the game. Set waypoints and use taxis whenever you want to save time.

I enjoyed GTA4's story. I thought everything about it really documented the death of Niko's dream for a new start, and highlighted the weight of our emotional baggage and the escalating cycle of revenge.

I could not get into GTA4 at all, I got 35% done in the campaign and started playing multiplayer instead, sold it shortly after. I think my problem with it was it took itself so seriously that some of the charm went missing.

You really have to follow the cut-scenes and dialogue to get into the story of GTA 4, the game-play was basically only shooting and driving.

But when playing the game back in the 2008, when their new physics engine was introduced, ohh my goodness, it was truly the best game ever created for me, then.

I was just running over people all the time and crashing into other cars. It was the first game I had seen such things. And those are the best memories any game has given to me.

I am expecting some kind of physics and effects revolution from GTA V too. Either way Rockstar won't let me down, of that I'm sure.

I think IV's story was long enough. Not as long as SA, but still good.

It can easily be balanced out by just giving you plenty of things to do besides the story. Something they've claimed they want to do.

Its on the 360 so its gonna be limited once again. They already said you cant do things like buy property or get fat or real Buff. All means this game is gonna be GTA4 all over.

Still feel a strong cast and story sells
