Rockstar On Grand Theft Auto V: "We're Focused On Variety"

One of the most prominent complaints surrounding the Grand Theft Auto franchise in the past has been that many of the missions feel too similar.

Personally, I don't believe that's entirely true, but you could sense some mild repetition, depending on which game in the series you play and whether or not you decide to tackle all the optional missions.

As for the upcoming GTAV, Rockstar says they're working hard to infuse more variety into the open-world crime adventure. In speaking to The Guardian, Rockstar Games co-founder Dan Houser said gamers shouldn't have to worry about too much similarity as they progress through the story:

"We've focused on variety. I don't think players will say, 'I'm constantly being told what to do, and I go there, I do it, I leave and I do everything in exactly the same way!' I definitely don't think that will be a problem."

It'll probably help to have three protagonists, an intriguing plot detail that was recently confirmed. Actually, in point of fact, Houser has clarified that we will play as both the main protagonist and the primary antagonist, so we'll see the story from greatly different perspectives. That's the kind of strong, branching narrative the series could really use, don't you think?

And by the way, new screenshots and details have popped up at As usual, you can't believe everything you read, but the pics are pretty. This one of the cityscape is most impressive...

The biggest problem i had with GTA4 was that i was everyones, excuse the language, bitch. In vice city i felt like i became the king of the city towards the end of the game rather than running errands all day. Im glad they fixed that issue and its cool that they pay attention to the fans.
