Have you seen the PC mod for the negative friction on cars in GTA IV? I can't afford a very good PC, but it looks pretty easy to do the mod, and it looks incredibly fun.
It's not the same as the flying cars cheat, but it's fun in its own right. And I think that there is a good chance they'll bring back some of the better cheats they had in San Andreas.
When I saw this topic, though, I thought you meant futuristic flying cars. If Rockstar made a game that took place in some futuristic city, that would be awesome. It looks like GTA is mostly going to stay in the realm of the present, while occasionally venturing as far back as the 60s, so it would be a different IP. That being said, Red Dead Redemption was amazing, so it shows that Rockstar is not just about GTA (even though it's still easily the most fun in my opinion).
Here's hoping for an open-world game set 500 years in the future!
hopefully the cars will have the dashboard with speedometer and the others on it, even if they're not real brand cars (which they should be) they should include the inside view of the car like they do on GT5. I also hope they add a speed limit and a gasoline feature where you have to buy gas at a gas station, to make it more realistic like on Mafia2.
Mafia II was one of the worst games I have ever played, and the speed limit and gas feature were incredibly annoying. I think Rockstar should stick to giving their players more freedom and choices than making them suffer through inane game design and incredibly linear plots like in Mafia II. That game can hardly be called an open world game. Flying cars would be awesome though; I think it would be funny if I crashed into a high tower and went sailing out of the windshield hit a nearby building ricochet off of it and then finally after while splattering to the ground. I used to try and do that with the car launcher glitch. Never worked. And also I hope the NPCs will use turn signals. I used die a lot speeding down the highway on a motorcycle by an Asian woman driver merging two lanes whilst using no turn signals. Funny but damn irritating in Lost and Damned when all you're riding is a chopper.
While I agree Real cars would be cool in GTA, it will never happen. Car manufacturers can't have their cars seen causing mass mayhem and murder. It was hard enough for racing games to be able to show just car damage. Now show a real world car plowing over a couple dozen innocent bystanders and you see where it would be a PR issue for the car manufacturer.
"The 2013 Ford F-150 can plow over 123 people before it has any significant engine damage! The Chevy Silverado can only plow 109 people! Plus the Ford is way more bullet resistant."
>>>Car manufacturers can't have their cars seen causing mass mayhem and murder.<<<
no, thats not the reason. it's mainly cause Rockstar didn't want to have to pay car companys to feature their real brand cars on the game. there are alot of car companys and alot of brands out there. imagine how much money it would cost to include them all into the game. I don't see why companys would demand money to put their cars on any game. it would be more or less like advertising them to people who buy the game and generate money from people who see those cars on the game and go out and buy the actual car.
That's actually the other half of the whole answer. Rockstar doesn't want to pay for the licensed cars, but the car manufacturers don't want their vehicles shown as murder weapons. Rockstar paid for licensed vehicles in LA Noire, a new IP, yet not for GTA, their cash cow. Why? Simple, you can't commit vehicular manslaughter in LA Noire. I can't tell you how many hours I wasted plowing over hundreds of people in GTAIV.
i'm sure there will be cheats on GTA5, but what's the point in playing a game if your just gonna cheat? from what I remember from GTA4, cheats blocked achievements/trophies on certain missions when you put them in.
It is possible to commit vehicular manslaughter in LA Noire, it is just much more difficult. If you can get the person pinned near a wall and run them over several times they will eventually lose enough health from falling down and die...
>>but the car manufacturers don't want their vehicles shown as murder weapons.<<
no, it cost too much to pay off car manufacturers to put their cars in games. if what you say was true, then why would car manufacturers let movie studios use their cars to be crushed or used to run over zombies and other stuff in movies if car manufacturers really cared about their vehicles used as murder weapons and such? they also use real car company cars in anime too.
