Internet.

I hope you have a computer in your house and you can fool around on the in-game internet like they did in GTA IV. Except you're in your own home rather than a damn internet cafe. Seriously, the last time I was in an internet cafe was in 2002.

They could parody Facebook, YouTube, common internet memes.

........ maybe parody GFAQS!!

They said you'll be able to access the internet on your smartphone this time. If each character has their own house, I wouldn't be surprised if you could access it there as well. Except maybe Trevor, if he lives out in the middle of nowhere.

I was really surprised at the amount of effort they put into the internet in GTA IV. Especially when you consider that the majority of players won't even look at anything beyond what's required for the story to progress. But I would also like to see an expansive internet to return. I think a parody of Youtube could be hilarious.

I agree.

And that's why I sat down the other night and spent a lot of time on the Internet. Which in turn made me want more to do with it. It could be used for shopping for clothes, weapons, and cars, and missions associated with those. Like Character X wants a car, so you find one online and go meet the seller, and then steal the car from him.

If you are getting a smart phone in this game the best thing for them to do would be to allow you to take pictures and video with it to then upload the to the real youtube from your smartphone and/or home computer. Imagine seeing something funny in the game, like a shoot out or someone driving crazy and you film it with your phone then upload it to the real youtube for others to look at.

This would be awesome. R* should have a section on their GTA site that's themed like real news websites where they ask you to upload your own photos and footage of things.

At the very least I really just want to have a gallery again, like we did in SA. And a massive amount of storage in it. I'd spend hours just taking pictures in SA.

It would be nice if they had GPS and other features on the phone, as well. One of my favorite things about GTA Chinatown Wars is using a smart phone on my iPhone. It is strange to think about.
