XboxFocus' GTA IV Expectations

From XboxFocus:

When the staff here at XboxFocus composed our Five Most Anticipated Games of 2008, only one game stood above Grand Theft Auto IV. Rockstar's critically heralded and mainstream friendly (yeah, that was a joke) franchise has been always had a soft spot in most of the gaming community's heart (especially here at XboxFocus), and whenever a new release is added to the series' line, excitement comes in gigantic quantities.

But GTA IV is different. Cloaked in mystery, little information is known about the game. Many fans have become nervous in the past coming months, and the anxiety will keep skyrocketing as the calendar days trickle toward the game's release. Hardly any videos, screenshots, or leaks have surfaced since the game's original announcement at E3 2006, and Rockstar has done a great job (well at least from their point of view) in sealing up all information regarding the game. This week's roundtable will feature each of the staff member's expectations for the mysterious GTA IV, and if you'd like to, post up a comment including your expectations as well. We'd like to see if your opinions match up with ours.

"Many fans have become nervous in the past coming months, and the paranoia will keep skyrocketing as the calendar days trickle toward the game's release"

Nervous? Paranoid? I disagree with the use of those words.

Do these guys remember anything about the information leading up to GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas? Maybe they don't because its an Xbox fan website and they didn't get it till a year after PS2... I'm not sure but the fact is Rockstar never over hypes their games. They never release tons of details prior to launch. Supposedly only 30% of the features have been revealed so far.

The lack of information doesn't hint at problems with the game... Its planned. Its the way Rockstar does business. They're a different kind of developer and its one of the many reasons their games are so great. You get to experience the game yourself rather than getting all the good details from reviews and info leaks. Surprises are a good thing... Remember the jetpack from San Andreas? No one knew it was there until people got far enough into the game to find it.

I'm not paranoid. I know the game will be great. Anxious would be a better word.
