Twilight princess was pushed back a lot but it didn't make it less fun. Just let them make a decent game, besides, it will do you good to have a break from the series, it can get boring going for long periods.

I'm glad to be honest... it means I can delay having to spend lots of money just to get an Xbox 360 to play it...

And if it means they have time to work around the requirement of hard drives on the 360 and make the game better then I'm all for it.

It's gonna be worth the wait regardless...

Well, the positive aspect of this delay is that more time is now available, therefore giving them the opportunity to fine tune the game.

Twilight Princess was a boring and mediocre game though.

He's being a troll in the Abortion thread, but that was a straight-up opinion (albeit it was put too bluntly and out of context). This thread isn't about Twilight Princess, it's about GTA 4.

GTA has gotten way too repetitive and is pretty much a waste of money now.

They keep adding new things to the game, and although the premise is the same, the amount of things to do and the size of the games has only gotten better since GTA 3. Yes, it sometimes gets repetitive - but it's more open-ended than any other game out there.

Well, I guess you're done with the series. I, however, am not, and I look forward to GTA 4. That's all I have left to say, because you're adamant in your opinion.

Means I don't ahve to spend any money on that. Was getting worried 'cause there are gonna be a bunch of games I want to buy soon, want to keep the cost as low as posible. Thanks Rockstar!
For me, yes its getting a bit repetitive, but I play it for the story, I don't do much freelancing in the game.

GTA has gotten way too repetitive and is pretty much a waste of money now.

Clearly you know nothing about GTA 4 then... You probably assume it's just going to be identical style gameplay to the GTA 3 series of games but with better graphics..

The GTA series of games has done massive leaps between each era of the series..

Think about the difference between the following era's of GTA games (it helps if you think about them in different series' which is how rockstar intended them)

GTA1, GTA: London 1969 (series 1)
GTA2 (series 2)
GTA3, GTA: Vice City, GTA: San Andreas, GTA: Liberty City Stories, GTA: Vice City Stories (series 3)

Between each series there has been a massive change in gameplay, graphics and style.

GTA2 introduced gangs, better graphics, more weapons, FBI and Army, a hell of a lot more content etc..

GTA3 introduced 3D gameplay and an extensive storyline which would stretch through all the series..
Vice City introduced tire popping, window screen smashing, property purchasing, clothes changing etc..

Anyway... the point is that Rockstar have stated that they're making GTA4 less arcade style and alot more realistic. Some examples... Your mission targets won't be on the map, so if you're chasing someone you can't just look at the radar to help you follow them if they're out of sight.. You won't be able to carry loads of weapons, but you will be able to carry them in a sports bag and store them in boots of cars. As far as I know they're getting rid of lock on targeting and making it manual aim..
Not to mention that they're making Liberty City as closely to New York as possible.. and that they're going to make the whole city  in an area about 3/4 of the whole San Andreas map... That's huge!!

You have to be naive to be making such negative judgements before you've even played the game.. Rockstar are keeping everything under wraps for now and all of the above information is subject to change.

The only good games are GTA: London 1969 and GTA2. Vice City was also kinda good thanks to the theme it had. The others are just plain crap and not even worth spending time or money on.

Wow, sounds like a few tweaks. It never was a great series anyway, but I'm still not impressed.

GTA 4 is going to be better then san andreas, It is going to be small, san andreas was so rediculously huge that you end up someplace and you have no idea what you were doing.

Here's a list from WikiGTA of known things going into the game, and there are more that I haven't listed on another site, but I'll see if I can dig them up later:

    * A highway is included in Liberty City, with working toll houses.
    * Shooting a car will result in realistic bullet holes.

    * Tires can be popped.
    * The map is smaller than that of GTA San Andreas, but no room will be wasted for large empty spaces like deserts or country side.
* All streets have real names, and all locations are at real addresses. - Holy crap, considering how big the game is.
    * Liberty City is based on four of the five boroughs in New York and an area of New Jersey. Liberty City is the only city in GTA IV.
    * The game starts with Niko helping Roman, who is heavily in debt.
    * Cars can be stolen by smashing a window to gain entrance.
    * You can use a mobile phone to call others, and not just to receive calls. The phone may have some other functions, but no details are known.

    * You cannot fly planes in GTA IV, but you can fly helicopters. A Maverick-like helicopter and a combat helicopter are available. +Liberty City has one airport. - THIS ONE PISSED ME OFF, but whatever... :(
    * Niko can climb into telephone poles and fire-escapes.
    * You can change Niko's clothes, but that's where the customization stops. Don't expect barbers or tattoo-shops.
    * The mafia makes an appearance, but the mob won't have an important role.
    * There will be 'virtually' no characters from previous GTA's.
    * It will be possible to have girl friends.
    * The camera is positioned closer to the car and lower to the ground than we are used to, and can be compared with the camera in Midnight Club.
    * GTA IV won't need loading, after the initial loading screen.
    * The length of GTA IV can be compared to those of previous GTA's.
    * The Xbox 360- and PS3-version of GTA IV will be more or less identical, although exclusive downloadable content will be available for the Xbox 360-version.
    * GTA IV does have multiplayer, but this won't be a massive feature. Further details are unknown
    * Pedestrians and traffic will behave according to the time.
    * GTA IV is, unlike previous GTA's, not inspired by certain movies.
*When you enter a building, the outside world can be seen through windows, doors, etc., and will still be moving in real-time. - Woah. ...Whoa.
    * GTA IV will have more features while you're not playing a mission.

    * Boats are available.
    * Philip Glass, who wrote the trailer music, is on the soundtrack development team.
    * It is possible to open the trunk of your car, probably to store and transport items in it.
