Have Rockstar overdone it?

30 posts in this topic

I was thinking to myself about the sheer enormity of San Andreas today. When it struck me. What if Rockstar have overdone it, what if all this extra stuff messes up the gameplay.

See I was thinking about some of the 'less-needed' features that have been added which might actually be a bit of a nuisance.

Like Eating: I think this a great idea and it has never been achieved in a game before, it seems incomprehensible to eat to stay a live in a game. But I am concerned that could this become too much of an annoyance as opposed to a cool feature, will it disrupt gameplay and prevent us from doing what we want.

The Countryside: Countryside would have been a great addition to both GTA3 and VC, but does San Andreas have too much, couldn't they have done something else with all the extra space, a lot of people are going to get lost out there.

Now I'm sure that Rockstar will pull this off, they are an outstanding company and Grand Theft Auto has a genre all of its own, it's just a couple of little concerns I have. I'm sure you guys have concerns about certain aspects of the game too.

I read somewhere that you have to eat once every 3 days otherwise you start to get skinny

That's better than every 3 hours. Imagine yourself flying, and you forget to eat. But what happens if you have played for 2 hours, in the game, and you save? If you load the 3rd day, do you just die then?

About the eating thing. I really don't think you have to eat. But if you dont your charcter will be all skinny and weak. You'll wont die. That's how i think it will work.

No no no! :lolbounce:

The countryside is the greatest ever idea for a GTA game EVER!!

When the first ever GTA game came out I was dreaming of a 3D version based on the whole world. Well were not there yet but by god this is a great step.

Imagine your driving through the wilderness and come across a little town and think "I need a bite to eat".

So you stop off at the little burger bar/ranch and grab a quick bite before heading off up Mt. Chiliad for a spot of sight seeing aaaaah...... B)

3 days? is that 3 of our days? or 3 gta days? cos, if the clock runs the same as it does in vc then one day passes in about half an hour (it's pretty much one minute game time equals one second of real time isn't it?)

so eating every 3 days means it's actually every 3 hours of play time.

but of course, no game time will pass between saving a game and when you load it again.

it does mean that i won't be able to start playing the game, then just leave the guy sitting there in a car with the radio playing for hours while i make food or mess with the computer or whatever.

the siz and all the costumization may be pushing the PS2 to its limits, like driver2 did to the Playstation. which now brings me to the PS3,

the PS3 will proberbly take anything it erm "reads" and produce ultra fine graphics every time.

So I think rockstar is only warming up, which means more great game for the future!!!

GTA forever!!!

PS3 will rule like PS2 did!!! Playstation forever!!!

I'm fine with the countryside, i think it will prove to be a really awesome idea, but the eating/weight/stamina system is going sounds a bit farfetched. I hope all of these stats won't be so systematic and eating and stuff and will feel natural. Not just work out for a minute and *ding* u are suddenly buffer.

Everyone always wants to make their guy fat. Hmmm...

First thing I'm doing when I get it is going to the Cluckin' Bell or Burger Shot, ordering too much food, throwing up on the cashier, him trying to throw me out of the store, me breaking his arm off.
