The only thing I ask GTA 6 is to look as little as possible to GTA San Andreas
Before the insults begin and you want to kill me, let me explain why this article. No, it is not _clickbait. It is very true what it puts in the headline; At least in my humble opinion. It is just a reminder that nostalgia is sometimes very stuffed. And that is not always better.
I say it without any shame: GTA San Andreas is the only one in the rockstar saga that I have not come to pass. It bored me sovereignly. Look that gang members are interesting and striking, but I couldn’t with the adventures of C.J and company. For many reasons. And precisely, those same reasons are those that make me some fear with GTA 6.
Why didn’t I like GTA San Andreas?
It is a question that often ask me friends or colleagues when I say this statement. And I understand, because for the vast majority, the best game of the rockstar saga is considered . As an authentic deity of video games. I value everything he put in Liza, and I think it was a turning point in the industry. But I am more from Vice City and his way of seeing life as a lentil .
So, in broad strokes, what I could do is a tweet of the style: A Popular Opinion: GTA San Andreas seems bored . That might simply seem free and incendiary, and I don’t want that. I prefer to expose the reasons that you do not have to agree; And surely you are not. You have almost to apologize when such a magnanimous work of the sector does not like, for the reasons. And I think we have that begin to take off the repairs to say without problem that some sacred cow does not like . It doesn’t have to do it; And we are not going to be worse lovers of video games for that.
I was crazy to play GTA San Andreas . At that time, I saw in forum as some lucky ones already owned the game before their release date, because in their trust trade they already sold it. I went to try luck to the mythical and already extinct Mail Center of Valladolid , where he was a usual. And my gaze of slugging did not work so that I could take it early. Although I did spend the two entire afternoons playing the one they had there on the stand, In case they gave them green light to buy it . The store was lowercase, so I could hear as 99% of those who entered, they arrived there with the same intention as me.
Already with the game at home, the first days were a tremendous enjoyment. I devoured the game throughout the weekend. Most of the time, going from history and putting me to make coffee throughout San Andreas. I wanted to take advantage of the infinity of things I could do, since GTA San Andreas was a kind of the Sims, but to the beast . You already know the countless possibilities offered by the game. From dancing with cars and their suspensions, until you go to pizzeria and eat as beasts to put our C.J Gordo , and thus build our own history of overcoming it by putting it in the gym.
A demonstration of brutal power at that time and that anyone must recognize and admire. I do so. But so many possibilities and so many things to do, they ended up overwhelming me . No, that a game has thousands of options like those that GTA San Andreas had is not necessarily bad. In fact, almost all are secondary. My problem is that came to make me 100% of GTA 3 and GTA Vice City and felt that I needed to do everything that I was. That caused me to overwhelm me a lot and leave the game abandoned. Probably, the fault is mine.
And you will say… Well, focus on spending the story, and something else. I tried. But already came with the negative Mood for the experience he was having in GTA San Andreas , with which he had been for weeks. And above it worsened more, because the game had a carafal error of design, and it was that if we failed in a mission, we had to return to the starting point to restart it. On many occasions, to demonstrate muscle, the distances were very long. ** I only felt that the game made me waste a lot of time.
Why do I have that fear with GTA 6?
I’ve been thinking about what Rockstar can do to overcome the barbarity of what he has achieved with GTA 5 . A game that has exceeded 170 million games sold, and that almost 10 years after its launch, continues to be every week in the top of practically all countries in the world.
Probably, what goes through my head makes no sense, because surely, The Rockstar creative team has already solved this problem long ago . Only, since we don’t know anything about the game, it is inevitable to ask these questions or reflections.
My fear is that they already have nothing to demonstrate, in terms of the level of game possibilities. Urban sandbox have stagnated in recent years because ideas are the usual, with small nuances. I have recently seen it with the new Saints Row. I know that GTA 6 will be something totally different, but to contribute, it only occurs to me that they can add countless possibility and things to do in the city where the work takes place.
So I fear that there are hundreds of buildings where we can enter to do banal things, such as, I know, throw a game to the bowling, to watch a movie in the cinema or that, adapting to the new times, Put Crossfit so that we upload the videos to a kind of Instagram . I think that the philosophy of adding by adding has become fashionable for a long time; And it overwhelms me just to imagine it, although at the same time, it sounds like the perfect video game. It’s strange.
On the other hand, I am calm for various reasons. On the one hand, because Rockstar has seen well that, The success of GTA 5 elongated in time has been by GTA online and the various options that were born from there, such as the Roleplay. And as for construction of what would be the work for a player, I think that Red Dead Redemption 2 is the best example in that aspect, because it is sensational; It has countless options very well distributed over its wide places and does not cause overwhelming, but rather an enjoyment of the freedom it offers. At the moment, we are going to have a female co-star, it makes me excited.
Returning to Gta San Andreas, maybe one day a second chance. His remastering made me ask me, but it ended up being a fudge and took my desire. In any case, sometimes video games are moments and perhaps that was not mine. But, you don’t have to justify you either. Nothing happens because you don’t like something that many others consider masterpieces . It’s the beautiful thing about this.
