What the hell did I just watch? That was the BIG trailer we've all been waiting for? There wasn't a single bit of gameplay in this thing.

You guys do know that Rockstar themselves said this would not be some brief teaser trailer, right? Well, that's all this was. 1 minute of cutscenes to me is a teaser trailer. I know a lot of people were expecting way more than this. Here is the actual article saying so.

Quote:


Since the countdown to the trailer has begun, there has been much debate and worrying around the internets as to whether it would just be a brief teaser containing only a few glances of the game. According to this article posted at GamesRadar.com yesterday, it will be anything but.

"The official trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV is only a few days away as of this writing, and publisher Rockstar has promised that it won't just be some infuriatingly quick teaser. Instead, it'll offer up the first substantial look into what the game is all about, and internet speculation over what that might be has kicked the rumor mill into high gear."


Don't get me wrong, the graphics were phenominal, but come on. I can't believe people think this was great considering the fact we were told this would be much more than what they showed.

I've been mulling over this tag line, "Things will be different" all day now. In the trailer he talks about all the bad things he's done in the past tense. And then says, "Maybe here, things will be different".

Maybe a hint that GTA 4 will be a lot more open ended and allow for other options than just being the bad guy?

I know it's far too early to tell, but the best part of San Andreas was all the off roading and the secret stuff you could find. Gonna be hard to include that in "NYC" unless it allows us to travel to "upstate NY."

Why couldn't they do that? Are you trying to say there is no open space NYC?

BD's right...on the back of the large cargo ship shown toward the end, it says "Liberty City". Of course I could easily be wrong, the boat could have just docked from Liberty City now that I think of it.

Also to back up my claim on why I agree it's Liberty City, here is another screen shot. The sign at the top of the Ferry Terminal in the middle says "_IBER_Y", missing the "L and T" are we?

This will be all about the gameplay and the physics for me. A game this open ended you can't expect unreal visuals, plus it's a multi platformer so you can be sure that it wasn't built for the ground up for the PS3's architecture. Oh well, as long as it is fun and immersive I'm in!

It may be a possibility that those were missing intentionally, as signs downtown in NYC frequently have letters missing/burned out/falling off.

Doubtful. My guess is that it's simply wishful thinking, and he'll be dragged back down into the cesspool fairly quickly. Just because he wants to walk the straight and narrow doesn't mean the bad guys (Russian Mafia, anyone?) of the world will let him.

Now wouldn't that be an interesting twist, if there were two perspectives from which to play the game? As the desperate criminal trying to clean up, or the hot shot police officer trying to work his way up the food chain with a big collar.

The logistics of it probably wouldn't work, but it'd be interesting, nonetheless.

There is nothing to say that the entire game will take place within lower Manhattan, merely that NYC is the central location. I doubt they'd backtrack and confine everyone to a grid of city blocks and a couple of boroughs. I have at least that much faith in Rockstar and the GTA franchise. That said, my lack of faith in Sony scaling and 1080i has never been deeper.

Yeah, it's doubtful. But if they're promoting the game with a line like they must be planning something pretty different. Hopefully GI will have some real details and not just rehash the trailer.

Oh, I know that. That's why I originally said it's far too early to tell. As long as they allow us to travel to GTA's versions of upstate NY, Long Island, New Jersey, and hopefully beyond, then it will be cool.

I am pretty sure that the tag line of "Maybe here, things will be different" is suppose to be representative of the feelings of a hardened former soviet coming from a place where crime is largely a way of life hoping for a better life in the "land of the free" as is the common stereotype of the american immigrant. Of course with rockstar's cynical worldview (at least as it applies to the GTA universe) this is meant to be ironic, as opposed to being indicative of the gameplay. **(not saying the game wont change at all but im sure the object is still total ****down)

Now, that said, THIS **** WILL BE OFF THE ****ING CHAIN!!! The look of Liberty City (and yes i do believe it will still be called Liberty even though its obviously New York) finally has the feel of a real hustling bustling city, and I can only imagine with the power of next gen consoles just how many of those buildings can be intruded! I have great faith that this game will be worth 10 times its weight in gold, and has consistently been the ONLY game series that gets me super hype. I can't wait for more.
October cant come soon enough.

Howshmadilly. Put it down..............cham-pion-ship!
