Some people I've seen seem to like GTA IV better because they thought the graphics were better, the story was more serious, and like various other things. I've always liked SA better because it had planes, a longer story, a much bigger and more diverse map, and more side-missions. Based on what you've seen about GTA V so far, do you think it's going to combine anything good about each game to make a game that more people will like?

I'm one of those guys that loves all the GTAs (The Stories games were good, but didn't really capture the magic of their originals), but
I've been playing through San Andreas recently, and the second trailer really seems like V has captured SA's spirit again.

I hope it does have features from both. Just not too much off the wall stuff like they put in SA. Or too much filler.

I don't see how anyone could pick between GTA's

They were all one of the greatest games of their time, 3, Vice City, San Andreas, IV, and I doubt V will be any different.

One of the things it needs to take from SA is all the easter eggs. Remember the sites and the forums, all about hunting down the multitudes of Easter Eggs? It was like a treasure hunt for a cheap laugh.
So, if you put an Oriental guy in a bowl, and spin it around, does he become disOriented?

And cheats. Let's face it, IV's cheats were crap.

It kind of will but the SA fans will be and probably are pissed that its only the one city, property is gone, we know next to nothing about the customization options, and the fact they are not really doing SA justice by not having the full state which an older game could and theres no good reason they couldn't with GTA V.

GTA V will be better then GTA IV but it could still prove to be a lesser game then GTA:SA content wise. GTA:SA had everything for everyone but with GTA IV they got rid of what so many fans liked and after hearing the complaints fixed some of it with the DLC but are repeating the same mistakes or making new ones with half assing a return to SA.

If you return to San Andreas give the fans ALL of SA again, not parts or pieces and try BSing with additions to the parts you decide to use. Fans would have been fine with one city had they done Vice City again and the new additions would be a nice thing as VC could use expanding but not a tiny part of SA like they have shown so far.

Dude, I don't see the big deal. If the map is as large as they claim, the missing places are more than made up for. I doubt worldspace is going to be a problem in this game.
