I just hope they have things to do, RDR maps may have been huge but, really pointless unless you went hunting.


See, thats what I liked about RDR though. The world had the ability to feel so alive, even in the vast open, empty desert. It captured everything so well, and achieved exactly what they set out to accomplish. Freak'n masterpiece.

Yes, RDR's map is bigger. Roughly 2.5 times the size of San Andreas, I believe.


nope. it's actually smaller. in terms of actual land mass probably not by much.


nope, RDR is actually significantly bigger than San Andreas. Thats fact. Deal with it.


no its not it just takes alot more time to get over

SA's map was not even that big, as the size comparison pic illustrates. You can fly across it in like 2 minutes tops. You can drive from Los Santos to Las Venturas in well under a minute. Not sure why you would call it "ginormous" unless you're just thinking that because of how big the real area it's based on is.

Pretty sure it takes a good few minutes to cross just one of the regions (maybe not the plains one) in RDR even if you were going 3 times the speed of the fastest horse.

If you had a plane it would take 2 minutes to cross RDR.

It's already been proven using the in game measuring stats and Rockstar`s scale that SA is 13.6 sqare miles, RDR is nearly 12 and IV is 6. Heck, you can go East to West in 6 minutes. There is no way RDR is 28 sqare miles like you all claim when its not even 5 miles wide. And you can easily measure that yourself in game.

Am I telling the truth.

East, to west with RDR in 6 minutes huh? Ya.

Again, maybe if you've actually played RDR you'd understand how incredibly impossible that is. Why on earth would R* be comparing the sheer size of their brand new mega-blockbuster game to RDR, over and over again if SA was the bigger game? They use RDR as their basis of comparison simply because it is THEIR LARGEST GAME TO DATE... R* says, "GTA V is the size of 3.5x RDR and 5X RDR including the ocean".. Why wouldn't they be comparing it to San Andreas if RDR was smaller? Ding ding..

Jesus Christ, you guys have got to be missing something upstairs if you can't connect the dots.. I don't know what else to tell you man. It literally drives me nuts to know there are people in our society that lack this much common sense.
