GTA V and Saints Row 4 follow a pattern

It has been known for some time that Grand Theft Auto V will be much bigger, and this environment will be filled with a lot of enhancements not seen in previous games, which at this time we can only guess from various vague interviews. It now seems that developers of the next Saints Row also understand the need for bigger and better, which follows some news that an expansion has been canceled and will now be a larger Saints Row 4 next year.

The head of THQ made their plans clear in a recent statement and this now means the expansions development will be incorporated into Saints Row 4, and should release at some point in 2013 with a game that aims to be the very best for fans. You can see the official statement below.

Rockstar has known that their fans want a much bigger experience and this is why they stated early on that GTA V would include much bigger maps, and fans have asked for customization, which includes pimping cars and other items to give the game more immersion. One thing we loved about previous Grand Theft Auto games had been the ability to just wander around the big map doing mindless things, and you could spend many hours doing this but imagine something much bigger and better?

These are also the words of THQ’s boss, he states above that they are delaying any new content for Saints Row to make it “bigger, better“, so it looks like both GTA V and Saints Row 4 are going for bigger and starting to follow a pattern they feel fans want.

Do you feel that bigger is better when it comes to upcoming games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and Saints Row 4? If you have any ideas for the next GTA and Saints Row games then feel free to leave a comment, especially if it concerns giving you more to do in these bigger environments. The GTA V montage above is thanks to Patrick Brown, and shows all GTA characters.

i think saints row 4 will be much much better than GTA 5 because we play games for fun and action, so saints row has all the qualities of a fun action game. GTA 5 has also action but Saints Row has action beyond the limit which mak it very suitable for gamers. Note that :- Gamers want fun not realism like GTA.

How can you expect THQ to release something that well made and thought over in such short amount of time?  Rockstar has been developing GTA V since GTA IV’s release.  They’ll have about 5 years in between games.  They understand that releasing annual games (I’m looking at you, Call of Duty) burns out consumers and makes for some half-assed games.  THQ was going to make a DLC for SR3, but I’m assuming they decided sequel after they realized GTA V’s threat.  And SR3 came out in late 2011, so if they’re looking to release in 2013 that means a ridiculously… Read more »

The sad part is, we all keep coming here because Mr. Chubb knows his new articles are the only thing we have to read on a daily basis.

Was looking forward to GTA V until I saw Watch Dogs gameplay…realism to the max. rockstar might have reached their limit. I hate moving around in GTA 4…like I was on rails. Getting out of a car getting shot up it takes forever…jump out while its moving you still get f#*ked up. Bullets are too slow. I can see them as I shoot them like little packman pellets…or paintball. Liberty city should of had snow. Driving in snow would be crazy. They need to bring some real inovative s*#t to the table cause 2013 has a lot of other amazing… Read more »

Bigger is better if both games deliver more excitement and more stuff to do. I expect more from these games especially GTA series, cause San andreas and GTA4 raised the ceiling on what Rocktar can develop just imagine…..Saints row is nice too, just  more cartoonish and comical but enjoyable. But GTA games are like a drug that you want to OverDose on over and over and over again..I want more..I need more.. I expect more.!!!

Gran Turismo 5 physics. let me drive around Los Santos with an in-car view using my Logitech G27 wheel+pedals+h-pattern shifter!!!!! this game is called Grand Theft AUTO, is it not?

sounds like Forza Horizon is going down this path… 

also allow me to switch to first-person during gun fights, so I can play that part of the game like a FPS (familiar MW3 controls would be convenient) if I want.

Everyone just wants stupid things added in GTA V. If you want more customization go play saints row. Gta is ment to be a realistic experience. They should defiantly focus on improving car physics, ai, shooting mechanics and general game play elements. Sure car customization is cool but it is not an essential part of gta to be successful. And everyone wants to be able to customize the main characters physical attributes but i personally think that if there was too much personal customization it would make the story less interesting and draw from the cinematic experience which was seen in all of the… Read more »

I really hope they put more realistic car accidents such as: when you hit another car they turn on their hazard lights and jus stay there instead of taking off like sometimes in gta 4 🙂

I think every single building you should be able to go into or purchase. I know it’s asking for a bit to much but think about the only buildings you go in are either for missions, your house, or old abandon buildings like in gta vice city stories. It also would be cool if they add other places. Like who wouldn’t want to go into a GameStop or a parody of it and a parody of wal mart. Have a ps3 or Xbox 360 in the game. I mean San Andreas had a game system so why not add them… Read more »

I’m looking forward to GTA V but I’m also looking forward to multiplayer. I’ve already told friends and family that play the game that we should form an alliance because Everytime I spawn in GTA IV I don’t know if there on my side or not so now I just kill everyone. If it possible to make GTA V on the vita I think they should. It would be nice to have a little vita to ps3 connection.

On GTA 5 i would love it more if they do have more houses, not just 4,5,6 but more than that seriously, remember on GTA San Andreas, pimp cars nitrous, BmX, Hairs styles, work out, surfing, and put more clubs, like 5, not like on GTA TBoGT which it was great but it was only one and could have been great if Bahamas was open too, and get to have more girls that you’ll date… big maps, have to play co-op with your friend online or on the game like GTA Sa, and get to drive on airplanes and you can have people… Read more »

Gta 5 cheats
Gta 5 cheats

here are some of my ideas i’d like to see in gta 5. Haircuts, car customation, jobs, and bigger clothes shops. I also want a better variety of weopons like in gta 4 you only have 2 weopon sets  so im hoping gta5 will have at least up to 4 weopon sets. one of the reasons i really like about gta games was the cheats it has but gta 4 didn’t have that much cheats when i first got it i got all the cheats i played it forever but something was missing i went back online to see the… Read more »

Yea me too lol!  The GTA and Saint Row series are almost not comparable other than they’re both open world and are about crime.  GTA is getting more mature while still not taking itself too seriously and Saints Row is the complete opposite of that.  I didn’t think i’d say this but SR3 left me somewhat dissapointed I felt that it got a little too kooky.  Also i hated the controls on the ps3 version In SR2, you could change the presets, in SR3 it was only one.  The biggest glaring issue is in its polish.  The Saints Row games… Read more »

Gta V is going to be awesome. I will never care about the Saints Row/GTA comparison because they are two different games. If Saints Row wanted to create a cool world they should of created a rural country atmosphere and maybe they’d have something that could compare. Anything that meshes the free roam of GTA San Andreas with GTAIV and make it something that will blow your mind in 2013. We know it’s going to be big, if not we wouldn’t be googling it 4+ times a day.

Saints row is NOTHING compared to GTA. SR3 is nowhere near as advanced as GTA IV, and it came out like 3 years after it…

Thanks to all the extra time taken with development of these games we can all look forward to MUCH bigger and better maps, which I personally cannot wait to enjoy, although I do hope we get car customisation in GTA 5 so I can PIMP my ride.
