Rockstar Redemption: Lessons for GTA5

Red Dead Redemption is riding high in the charts, but it won't be too long before people start pondering about Rockstar's next project. Max Payne 3 and LA Noire are both somewhere on the horizon, but at some point in the not-too-distant future, there'll inevitably be a GTA 5. With that in mind, I thought it would be interesting to explore a few of the ways in which RDR has improved on the structure of GTA IV - lessons that Rockstar could take forward into its next game.

"If we ever want causal gaming to progress beyond its current level, where something like Wii Sports is about as complicated as things get, there has to be an effort to engage with interested parties. RDR shows that this is possible without compromising the demands of traditional gamers."

so true.

also: "Rockstar has a decent track record when it comes to creating memorable protagonists, but with John Marston it's done the unthinkable: the publisher let us play as a nice guy."

so awesome character, and infact, John is the best character R* has ever created.

So many problems and annoyances with GTA4 that ALMOST kept me from RDR. Im glad I picked it up anyway, the game feels so much more stream-lined; Also doesn't feel weighed-down by it's self.

saints row 2 i just finally finished and after playing GTA4 and gta dlc a while ago no doubt in my mind gta was boring

SA in HD would be more fun than a boring gta 4

a lot of people talk about adding real life things in games but they need to make sure its fun

You don't like GTA4 so your solution is to make an HD SA? Didn't R* just make an HD LC for GTA4? Maybe a better solution is to make a completely new location, it seemed to work for GTA3, Vice and SA. Nostalgia isn't as much fun as exploring a new world for me.

GTA IV was BORING and slow. I want GTA V to be more like San Andreas. Now that game was fun!

Now that they have the animations and the engine programming, they need to put animals in the next GTA! I want to be chased by wolves and bears in the forest and police and guard dogs in the city... Maybe even cops on horses!

Police dogs would be awesome
