What is this? Is it a Timer counting down until the trailer comes out?
yeah, I'm expecting something big. But I really don't like this franchise. Once I got tired of doing the missions, I found the game to be a half assed driving game, half assed shooter, half assed action game with half assed controls and a half assed camera.
3 years? Ah damn it
Why should there be obstacles in a video game?!

I really hope it just blows every other GTA out the water! I really want to explore EVERYTHING go ANYWHERE! I cant even imagine what achievements there going to have, I have high expectations for this game and i hope this damn trailer isnt a 20sec teaser, i wanna see lots of gameplay! Oh well 3 days ehhhhh
I still put San Andreas in and screw around for a while once or twice a week. The bike jump glitch in particular is a ton of fun once you get it down.
Hell, half the fun of these games stems from how poorly-made they really are.
Here's hoping for one of the following in the upcoming game:
a. Character customization -- you get to pick the race, sex, physical appearance etc of your character ala your average MMO.
b. Return of the silent protagonist. Probably goes hand-in-hand with the first one...
c. Takes place in the prohibition era with missions like rum running and radio stations that play campy getaway music.
My bet's on none of these!
I can't wait to see this trailer.

Playing Crackdown recently has reinvigorated my interest in the "sandbox" genre. I'm really looking forward to what Rockstar has in mind for this release.
My only wish is that they abandon the "gangsta" shit. Gunning down cops and killing civilians is just plain pathetic and most of all...not fun.
If they don't want to abandon the gangland mentality, they could at least recontextualise it. There's a rumour GTA IV could be GTA London, only in hi-def... GTA+Ronnie+Reggie? Tell me that's not a winner.
Whatever this winds up being, I fully expect it to be huge. Here's hoping it is not GTA London.

On Friday or Saturday night, I wasn't sleeping very well, and was flipping through the channels at 2 in the morning. On cable tv (channel 36, FX) they had that same exact GTA IV counter on. I have no idea why it was on there, or how long it stayed on, but whatever. I haven't bothered with GTA since III/Vice City. We'll see what this one has to offer.
I am teh winnar of the internet.
Personally I hope that they make the city half or a quarter the size of Saint's Row but make it fully interactive. I'm sick of seeing buildings with doors that you can't open, I mean they might as well be blank boxes. If I want to go into someone's apartment and rob them I should be able to. Also how about being able to shoot out some windows on these buildings.
I loved GTA III, didn't care much for Vice City, and loved San Andreas (although I agree with the previous comment about the flight controls - they weren't exactly simple).
I'd love IV if it takes SA to the next level (like how I feel SA took III/Vice City to the next level). I don't know what that would mean, though the MMO idea above aren't a bad start.
Time will be when the broadest river dries
And the great cities wane and last descend
Into the dust, for all things have an end
Hope it lives up to what people are expecting and then some.
Only multiplayer, plus 4 player splitscreen....pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!!!!!!!
I'm pretty exited about this, especially hoping they add some sort of decent multiplayer.
