Does anyone feel the environment is lame?

Does anyone else feel that there is so much out there but not much interaction in the environment. Rockstar did a great job going into detail of this city. But if you go to any random home, mansion, business. There are steps, ladders, and entrances that lead to a section that is detailed but nothing there to do. I always like investigating a property, but this game there is nothing to find. Other than maybe a letter in regards to the achievement about L. Johnson. But then you don't get to read anything in the letter fragment. I honestly think the game is getting boring after main story.

I agree, it's one of the main issues the game has, a lack of interiors and such.

You get to read the whole letter once you've finished it.

It's likely that Trevor is a meth-head though...

Yeah, it kinda sucks that after putting so much detail into the smaller things, which look amazing for a game of this size, they just cut it off right when it was getting interesting.

What it comes down to is 15 year old white kids wanting to walk through Franklins shoes to see what thug life is like.

And GTA5 has one city with a lot of back country with a few mountain roads.. "big fucking whoop" also? To be honest, the way you just described GTA4 seems much more better than GTA5 when you read it objectively.

Well I understand everything is in great detail. I give them credit for that. It's small stuff like the pier. Even the loading screen says "visit the pier and enjoy the rides". Their are 2 dinky rides. You can't interact with the game booths. Riding the Farris wheel isn't exactly fun from a video game standpoint.

And again I understand a game like this you can't create interiors of buildings. But atleast make items you can interact with or even read, or points of interest.

The environment is one of the best I've sever seen in a game. While you're flying around the map to uncover it all you see all the different types of areas and it's amazing. There could be way more interiors and shit but oh well. There's plenty to do and buy, and find. Maybe there should be exploration missions like AC3 and a better hunting system otherwise I'm happy so far.

Well on one hand the outdoors environments are beautiful and much more fun to hang around than in GTAIV, on the other hand I do kinda miss going in some of the random buildings and such. It's still there, but I imagine R* wanted to focus on making the whole land incredible, which they succeeded.

Definitely wish there were more interiors. You have a massive open world with so much detail but the fact you cant enter hardly any buildings scrubs a lot of the realism from the game.

all the things already packed onto gta v is the limit for the current gen. i'm sure they thought about people going into buildings but they couldn't add it. we need to wait for gta 6 on next gen *maybe*?

I don't know if this is accurate at all. The fact that they can divide up information between two discs seems to suggest that they could've went into more detail with interier areas if they wanted to. As it's been demonstrated plenty of times, the world of GTA5 loads only the areas that are near you; loading the interiors of particular buildings that are also near you would act in a similar way I imagine -- I think the excuse of it being the "limit for the current gen" doesn't hold much water when the information for these interior areas could've just as easily been placed onto one of the two discs and be utilized when a circumstance called for it.

So basically the question is how much further could they push the poor 360 hardware? Who knows really.

does anyone else feel that we as gamers are as spoiled as ever. this environment and level of detail has NEVER been achieved like this before. sure, Skyrim had things to do but lets be honest, quite repetitive things. and FYI, there's not an unlimited amount of space on an xbox 360 disc so I'm sure they get to a point where they simply can't add anymore. if they could detail every interior of every building I'm sure they would, but they can't, unless you want a game with no missions... but awesome interiors. even if they did detail every interior, we the gamers really, really would not appreciate it and would still find reasons to complain, sooo...

No one suggested there was an "unlimited amount of space" on a game disc. It was simply surmised that because they're capable of putting the game onto more than one disc, instilling a bit more interior areas was more than feasible.

Honestly.. again, no one suggested that every single building in GTA5 have an explorable interior -- it was only suggested that there should be more interior spaces, period.

When you think about it, the immense and detailed ocean floor doesn't add much realism to the game simply for the fact that we're primarily there only for collectables. Do you disagree that focusing more on interior spaces around areas we frequent MUCH more than under the sea is a more practical use of resources and disc space? I mean, surely gamers are much more likely to stroll into a building than go through the effort of getting a sub and sinking to the bottom of the ocean, no?

They can add everything anyone could ever want, and people would STILL find something else they could have done.

That's just the way it is.

Wi regards to the argument about interiors and disk space....that wouldn't solve the issue.

There's two ways to do it...implement open world, or use loading screens to segregate areas.

Having it open world, the 360 wouldn't be able to cope if you added interiors to many buildings. It's stretched as it is now. You'd be adding another 30% to the game world etc.

And they could of done loading screens, but, I'm guessing they didn't want them every time you entered a building.

Hardly. There's been plenty of games that have an install disc and a play disc -- that alone doesn't determine whether or not they're "pushing the limit". It's simply a means of allowing you to access more information; both from the installed content and the disc that's currently in the HDD.

I am also curious why you only responded to my discs statement and not the rest. Do you honestly feel that Rockstar couldn't have allowed the game to load more interior areas within a radius of your position in-game? I assume you know that that's how the game loads normally. I'd be able to buy your "limit" statement if GTA5 loaded and updated all areas of gameplay in real-time.. but that's not the case. It's much similar to Minecraft and its load chunks, if anything.

tl;dr a game coming on two or more discs is not mutually exclusive with it "pushing the system to the limit".

That's exactly what they did with the ocean exploring.. but I'm pretty sure that's more than 30%. How did that work out? I don't think I've heard a single person be excited about being able to explore the ocean floor -- if anything, the collectables relating to the sub seem to be everyone's least favorite.

google it. you're too narrow minded to understand that gta v is at the limit for current gen. Rockstar themselves even said they wanted to add so much more but couldn't.
