There are plenty of open world games where I've just walked around and taken things in. GTA has not been one of them, for the most part. Back in SA I walked around a bit to listen to the random conversations for a bit, but that didn't last long.
The scope of this game, the scenery, everything from just the screenshots we've seen seems to beg it. It almost seems like a requirement to take in the world that R* has created for this game, rather like RDR. I feel that if you don't, you might just miss some of the finer things that are there to be appreciated.
Anyone else feel this way from what we've seen so far?
I wish the first thing I had said as a child was, "Quote". That way when I die, I could say, "Unquote".
