Empty streets?

This is not a complaint but more of an observation that Im sure many people have noticed.

Ive seen about 11 different gameplay videos so far and the streets all seem to be pretty barren. Few cars and even fewer people. Has anyone perhaps seen a video or already have the game and able to tell me otherwise?

I know I shouldnt expect crowds like Assassins Creed because of GTA's scale, but was hoping for a bit more.

I do know what videos you have been watching.
But i watched a live stream.
And there were loads of people.
I actually noticed something that no one else has yet seen or heard of -

There was a gas station being properly used, people were queuing to get in and fill up there car, people were actually going in to the gas station and paying, as the player of the live stream also ran inside.

I don't think most people have gotten far enough to get into the times square, etc area yet. I would hope that area would be packed with both people and vehicles during the day.

About density of people in game

There's no place I've seen so far that has been 'packed' with people. Most of the time there's a pretty steady flow of cars and peds, about the same amount as in SA I guess.

A little let down by this. The game looks gorgeous and the Ped behavior is incredibly organic, I'd just suggest a little more "filler" pedestrians.

It'd be cool if they could release an update for the game which allowed an option forincreased pedestrians with a slight dip in graphics.

However, some areas looked quite packed at certain times, so it seems like the game can handle it.

Your eyes deceive you, child.

At one point, one guy was at Star Junction. I saw loads. And I mean loads.

thats positive. i think they should have it so in star junction you'd have to take a while to drive through there unless you smash your car through the traffic or get out and walk. traffic is no fun in real life, but in a game its great!
