Gameplay screenshots spoiling too much?

I didn't think gameplay screenshots would be released so early, and I really thought that I'd continue looking up any new news, but now I'm not so sure. Does anybody else think that too much is being revealed now, and it's going to take away from the experience of playing the game for the first time? I just saw the HUD screenshot on the front news page for a split second, but looked away quickly before I could get a really good look at it.

Is anybody else here going to try to avoid looking at HUD/gameplay screenshots? I'm going to try to, but that might be really hard when going to any gta fansites. So what should I do? I don't want to be left in the dark until it comes out, because the news helps to build the hype...but the gameplay shots are going to become spoiling imo. Help??

Well it was never planned for these to be released, this was all ZOO! Magazine. Eventually though, we may more than likely get some official, digital in-game screenshots displaying the HUD, like we did with San Andreas.

Simple thing is just avoid the front page then until the game comes out and just stick around on the forums, avoiding threads which are quite obviously contain spoilers.

Why is the hud a spoiler? it has no bearing on the storyline?

I think he's just saying gameplay screens in general, not sure though

I understand that, but you know, without knowing the storyline it's just images to me. But hey c'est la vie.

True, it has nothing to do with the story, but I still think that seeing the HUD and what the game looks like while playing would spoil discovering all that during the first play.

And I'll probably stay on the forums, avoiding any topics that might have spoilers. Same thing with the main news page, I might read the title of anything new, but might not read the rest.

Yeah but i mean, a screen wouldn't really spoil anything....

If you wanted to stay away from gameplay you shouldnt have watched the 4th trailer either (im guessing you did), but they said that the 4th trailer when the infernous(sp) or cheeta(sp) or what ever car it was, (we don't know exactly yet) when it did that 180 that was gameplay...

Because the article at GTAPlanet, they said it took them hours to get it right...

I'm ok with trailers and such, because they don't show what it actually looks like while playing. They change the camera angles and make it more cinematic.

i ignored the pictures showing gameplay. i don't want to spoil the way it's going to look when i first play the game. it should be removed from the site.

the screens of multiplayer are gameplay, just from different camera angles. I personally hope to see official screenshots of the gameplay soon, just not too much of course. i dont want anything in the game that you dont have access to right away to be spoiled. never the less, gtagaming, keep it coming! only four weeks to go!!!!!

these small ingame screenshots (spoilers) are the only thing keeping me from going insane.

Trying to put all the names of the trailer is to a small statement.

SPOILER?!! <- Just in case somebody doesn't want to know what I'm about to say regarding the Zoo-images. :3
...not that anyone will be able to figure anything out of it anyway. XD

I don't mind a thing or two, but as long as we don't get too much. The only difference from the picture in my mind on that HUD is that the radar is in the opposite corner of the screen. o_O
The graphics looks really comfortable as well to me, so there are no disappointments there. XD
