One of the original developers of the Grand Theft Auto series has said that he believes the franchise is "stagnating", and that the series is "not moving fast enough".
I disagree. All they gotta do is get back the original physics of the game and better controls (cough Uncharted) , more coop related single player and they have the perfect formula for their games.
he is talking about the fact that the city engine for GTA 3 was supposed to be used to produce more games, meaning other games besides GTA
@DA_SHREDDER U commented based on the topic alone :/ LOL....U Fail hard XD
Sometimes I look at these comments and wonder how many idiots really come here... But I guess as long as they are one of the first to post, reading doesn't matter!
I disagree I think the physics were awesome in GTA4 and RDR. The euphoria engine is my favorite new thing about this gen.
DA_SHREDDER? What, that's not even a word. What are you trying to say? Why are you typing in caps? Oh! I just read the first line and made a comment about it! And now I realize it was your name. What a stupid ass, moronic fcuk up people must think I am. And hey, they'd be right.
Lol, pure gold. Bubbles Up!
exactly makes a mockery of all those 10/10 scores
please read before making comments based only on the headline ...
The headline needs to change, in order to encourage proper reading.
I still agree that it's become stagnant, though...
It will be if we dont get a new one some time soon Like, damn, how has the next one not even been announced yet?
True, it should have been announced like AGENT, so we know it's being worked on 100%. Although maybe they didn't so as not to sabotage their own progress with RDR and LA Noire etc. They're trying to establish IPs and IPs gain more success this way.
Guys E3 is in a couple of months. GTA is going nowhere as a franchise and LA Noire is the gateway to see the new tech that they are working on for all their games going forward I bet. GTA5 will be their best I suppose. I would like customization like Saints Row series though. I really like all the options that game provides even though it looks like a PS2 game.
yea it has to be getting released this year its been almost 3 years im guessing a E3 announcement cant wait because what ever they do ima love it
San Andreas was GTA's series finest, it was litteraly like a great rpg, stats to upgrades( physical strengh ,driving skill, flying skills, vehicules, guns skills etc...) tons of quest, very vast landscape. It made me wondered, WTH happened with GTA 4? @cozmo I'd buy it day 1 no doubt about it, I loved it so much I bought the collectors edition after I finished lol.
HD remake of san andreas with online multiplayer is what i want on PS3 :)
Or just get the PC version. It's not that demanding of a game nowadays anyways. Remakes make sense for some games, but I'd rather they focus on newer projects instead.
i have PC version with multi theft auto but i would like HD remake still
Why not an NGP day one release with online multiplayer and different story. That would be cool.
that was the highlight for me too but i have to say i want a different lead character after playing that game too much i found myself talking like a gangsta and my friends got sick of it real quick haha
Haha, we( me and my friends) made fun of each other speaking like a gangsta( even to this day). That's how much we loved SA.
"Homies, over here!"
C.J >> he was the funnest character out of them all to me
That sucks :( One of the most famous franchises has the most laziest developers :( ive heard alot of rumours about that and im glad i got it comfirmed now. Been 3 years since GTA IV there should atleast be another one announced by now!
if they try to make it equal on 360 & PS3 it will be
I think this would only be true if R* don't announce GTA 5 before or during E3 this year.
I wonder what he would have done differently with GTA IV .
Made it fun when you're not on a mission.
Stagnating win maybe.
I'll agree. There hasn't been much overall change since GTA3. At least, not enough to write home about.
What? Have you played San Andreas? It's nothing like GTA3.
lets see gta in a different setting, After Just Cause 2, urban cities aren't too interesting.
GTA just got better and better up to San Andreas which I think it did peak... But saying that I still loved GTAIV, I just missed the quirkiness, characters and the variety what San Andreas had.
i was slightly disapointed with gta4 but they took steps back in the right direction with tbogt.
GTA 4 played around with technology very well but it abandoned much of the awesome gameplay we saw in the older games... Thats about all there is to say about it really. I for one am not disappointed yet, GTA 5 will be the decider.
but i want to comment about the content on GTA4 rather then the engine san andreas had it all in terms of content, then rockstar go backwards with GTA4 if the content isn't up to scratch it could look like killzone 2 for all i care and it still wouldnt been worth playing
I'm bettin' we'll see LA Noire release, then Agent release date, then GTAV announcement in that order. I just don't really see Max Payne fitting in, no idea how and when that's gonna happen.
Rockstar made the GTA series then the RDR series and now they are coming with L.A. Noir and what ever Agent is. I think being stagnate was good as it allowed enough time to come up with great ideas for "living City" games. It's better to perfect the tech and their craft instead of rushing CRAP out.
I have a feeling we won't see or hear an gta5 announcement anytime soon because R*: *is publishing L.A. noire *developing Max Payne *lastly, working on Agent I'll say, a 2013 announcement is most likely.
He's just jealous because he was never around when the series exploded into the mainstream.To say GTA is stagnating is foolish,you just need to look at last year's Chinatown Wars and Ballad Of Gay Tony that they take criticism seriously and work harder than any other company to fix them.Just look at how amazing Red Dead Redemption is compared to it's predecessor.I cannot imagine how fantastic a sequel to Bully might be.
Forget GTA, I wanna see some Agent.
Maybe it would move faster if they fixed the vehicle physics
the hell does that has to do with anything
You ever drive a car in GTA? Nico Belick goes back to his Russian roots, making him close his eyes, take his hands off the wheel, and floor it. Driving in a perfect line towards any sort of building. Then he is ejected from his seat through his windshield. He hijacks another car and repeats.
loool you alright man you alright
Well Rock Star limited the exploration in GTA IV. Red Dead: Redemption, L.A Noire, and Agent (PS3 Only) look like a step in the right direction.
GTA IV was pretty tiresome, it all felt a bit repetitive and in the end a bit of chore to finish. I'm most looking forward to Agent and L.A Noire. I think they need to really think outside the box for GTA V, maybe if there was some way in which you could recruit and build your own gang/mob they could then add some more variety to the story and missions..
I dunno'... I've enjoyed every GTA sequel. Heck, I still play the old 2D version.
