Grand Theft Auto is a great
franchise that almost everyone has played. You either love it or you don't (but
you still play it). After the release of
GTA IV some fans were disappointed in the more realistic direction Rockstar
went with. While at the same time others enjoyed the feel of the game. As for
my opinion I would say I'm in the middle. I love Vice City and San Andreas for
the crazy, over the top gameplay, but I never really cared that much for the
characters and the story of those games. GTA IV flipped that all around. If I
want to play through a great story with great characters I'll play IV.
Grand Theft Auto V looks to be
headed in the same direction as the last one. With a new game there will
certainly be new features that make it more realistic. But there is that fine
line between realistic and too realistic. After all this is still a game and it's
for entertainment purposes. So I was thinking of some bad features Rockstar
could add to the game to make it more realistic.
No more driving through town like
a mad man at 100mph. No more driving on the sidewalk because there's less
traffic. Every time you drive faster than the speed limit you run the risk of a
cop chasing after you. Same would go for driving through red lights. You would
also need to make sure you have your left or right blinkers on while you make
turns. Just thinking about having a speed limit in a GTA game makes me cringe.
You would have to keep up with how
much gas you have in your tank of each car you drive. Feel like tackling a new
mission in the main story? Better make sure your new Infernus has enough gas to
get the job done. Every car you jack will have a different amount of gas in it.
With this being a GTA game the fuel prices are surely to be through the roof!
Maybe you could take over the different gas stations around the city and start
earning a profit from those. This feature might happen someday, but I think it
would get old fast.
Every few hours you would have to
make a pit stop to relieve your character. Got a big mission coming up? You
might want to hold off on eating at Cluckin' Bell. You don't want your
character doing the potty dance while you're robbing a bank.
(Where does Niko keep that thing?)
The main character would carry
around a huge backpack with all of their weapons in it. Plus it would make your
character move slower because of the weight. I mean you have to put your
pistols, shotguns, RPG's, and grenades somewhere. Either carry it all with you
in your bag or leave most of your weapons at your safe house.
No more staying up all night
watching Republican Space Rangers for you mister. Your character needs to get
his eight hours of sleep in every night. If you don't then your character will
be forced to take naps during the day. You don't want to fall asleep at the
wheel as you're being chased by the cops for not stopping at that stop sign.
