Bigger Isn't Always Better - Who Needs Heists When You Can Do Yoga?

In the neverending quest to be the biggest, baddest game on the shelves developers are forcing more and more content into games. Unfortunately it often comes at the expense of the more important core mechanics of the game. Bigger certainly isn't always better. (Counterstrike, Crash Bandicoot, Culture, Grand Theft Auto V, Industry, Portal)

If there is only one thing I feel needs correcting in GTA at the moment, it's the type of side stuff you do.

I wish the kept it more in line with the tone of the games so to speak..

I mean in San andreas you had like the gang wars and stuff taking over blocks with your gang and then fighting off other gangs trying to take back. it was just a side thing but it felt in line with the theme of the game.

now you do bowling and tennis and shit, it's cool the engine is that diverse it can pull off stuff like that, but it's only fun for like the first 5 seconds and then you just want to move on to actually driving and shooting.

in the old gta you had those race corse challenges and if you entered a street race, you could jump out of your car, RPG the whole lot, jump back in your car and drive off and win the race. Now that was doing things GTA style!

Totally agree. These are some of the reasons GTA V wasn't that great for me. Sure I got more than my moneys worth and it was a blast - but like GTA IV it just sits in the back of mind unlike San Andreas which is still the peak of the series for me. Vice City is memorable too for its locations and GTA 3 purely because it was the first 3D GTA.
I also miss the customisation in San Andreas. Nodding cars, getting fat etc..

Yeah who needs heists when the PS3/360 versions were bloated advertisements for the next generation ports?
