Longer GTA V story needed, but not repetitive
We recently discussed the length of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V game adding to reports that it will not be as long as its predecessor, with suggestions that it will be similar in size to Red Dead Redemption. From the reactions of fans, we get the impression the length of the last game was not the issue, it was the repetitiveness that surrounded the missions.
GTA 5 is expected to have plenty of secondary things for players to do, which will add more time to the game, however some feel that learning from the mistakes in the previous Grand Theft Auto titles they should concentrate on making the missions less repetitive. There is a notion that many gamers did not get through the last game because the story wasn’t captivating enough, but we can’t help feeling that this has caused Rockstar to shorten the next installment focusing on the content.
The introduction of three protagonists has given reason to expect a longer story, although the three characters will help in regards to the repetitive missions we have come accustom to. If there is plenty to be getting on with in a free roam aspect, the length of the story may not be an issue and the reports about multiple endings have accumulated a lot of interest.
Another aspect of the game that is worth discussing is the GTA V map and how big this will actually be, although not too much has been divulged on this. Apparently, the map will be the largest GTA game map that means it will be bigger that San Andreas at 13.9 square miles or 36 km, and this is documented on iGTA5.com. The Grand Theft Auto 5 world is said to be bigger than GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, and San Andreas combined, with more room to spare, although we are wondering whether this could mean gamers could end up stranded in a baron land without any form of transport on offer, therefore taking a tedious amount of time running back to civilization.
iGTA5.com also report on leaked GTA 5 maps and what gives them the impression they are fakes, additionally out last post spoke about a UK price war starting with Tesco being the first to draw blood. At the moment, Tesco seem to be offering the best value, although we can see some competition to come from the likes of Asda, Sainsburys, Play.com and Amazon, because this kind of response has been witnessed with other big titles. Do you think Rockstar will add to the longevity of the Grand Theft Auto V story with added DLC?
