Second.jpg. But I think Saint's Row has that niche cornered. Rockstar's done quite well with serious drama, as far as sales go, so they don't really have any incentive to bring back the unhinged crazy.I hope it isn't so serious as GTAIV. Less life simulator, more crazy mayhem.
LA Noire won't use GFWL, and if you buy it on Steam it'll support Steamworks, hopefully this will also apply to GTA5!This time round, though, it would be nice if the PC port doesn't arrive horribly optimised, with every orifice stuffed with securom and useless social networking BS. TBH even the prospect of GFWL has me considering waiting until a year after release for some €5 Steam sale.
This.I didn't see anything wrong with GTA4's story other than maybe a marginal over-use of 'LIFE EEZ TAFF' cliches. Thought the characters were pretty fantastic, in fact, even down to the minor roles like Phil Bell. For me, if Rockstar had just made the city a little more interactive and toned down the obsessive grind involved in keeping your friends happy, then they'd have had a near perfect game.

Indeed.I agree with the immersiveness of GTAIV's setting, but story and character-wise I wasn't impressed. Vice City still has the most memorable characters and story of all of them, so if they could bring that back into a realistic and immersive city, I'd be happy.
I heard next-gen consoles might have 1 entire gigabyte of RAM!!!! Can't wait to experience slightly better textures.Welp, let's wait for GTA VI then. Then we can see some real computational power put to use to create the next level of immersive and interactive world.
Getting tired of consoles holding back games.
Ballad really was the best of the episodes (including the original campaign). That one motorbike mission was ****ing bonkers.I'd like to see something in the vien of The Ballad of Gay Tony which combined the realistic city of GTA IV with fun, vibrant & over the top characters and missions that brought fond memories of Vice City.
