I don’t think that is known yet. I sure hope so. It’s far from a bad game, but IMO GTA IV is a big step backwards from San Andreas. Only three clothing stores? No custom cars or paint jobs? No character customization (no tattoos, no haircuts, no gyms, no nothing)? Fewer restaurants? (And why the heck can you only buy a burger in Cluckin’ Bell? It’s a chicken restaurant!). No optional safe houses to buy? I have almost a million bucks and there’s nothing to spend it on. And I hate the whole “friends” concept.* I also really miss Ammu-Nation. The explanation in the game is that Liberty City has strict gun control, but if I wanted to experience moron politicians banning guns, I could just turn off the game and turn on the news.
*Although there is a way to deal with that. If you accept a “date” when someone calls and then immediately call them back and cancel, it doesn’t lower their ratings.
The gym was because they couldn't get the character model to work when they tried it. The better graphics made it significantly more difficult to do anything with. But, that doesn't mean I shouldn't be able to have numerous outfits, a sweet car, and character customization.
I do want to mention that I liked GTA IV. It was a fun game albeit not what I wanted from a GTA video game. After San Andreas, I expected so much more from GTA and felt summarily let down. Not their fault really, but it was a major bummer to me.
The only things I hope GTA does are allow a little more customization, a garage that retrieve cars I put in it (I hate getting a sports car that takes hours to find only to drive it to a mission and never see it again), and just a little tweaks to the peripherals (side missions, mini games, etc) would make me a happy person. Also, hopefully they have the casinos of Las Venturas in V because I wasted soooo much money in them
. My favorite GTA city to date.
