Anyone else kinda worried that GTAIV may just end up being a graphical upgrade?

I really hope that R* manages to make GTA fresh again. I love GTA to death but even I admit that it'll be disappointing if they make it like past entries but with a graphical upgrade. I've been highly disappointed by a lot of the series I used to love recently, I really hope that doesn't happen to GTA. =/

One thing I hope they implement is a larger emphasis on interaction. Interaction with npc's beyond running them over or putting 45 different kids of lead into them. Replaying all of these GTA's (I'm replaying III now, then I'm gonna work through VC and SA, then LCS, also working on VCS now) I've realized the lack of interactivity. I never get to see my bosses aside in mission cutscenes, you can't talk to pedestrians... maybe I'm wishing GTA would turn into something it's not, but a little more depth would be nice.

A greater interest and emphasis in the social maladjustment (if that's the right word) aspect of GTA would be a wonderful welcome as well.

But what am I complaining about? Even if GTAIV turned out to be just a graphic upgrade (which I highly doubt), I would still buy it on day one and love it to death.

I know what you mean about not seeing people from cutscenes, you feel kinda alone after the missions are done.

I dont think R* will let us down graphicaly.

I think the girlfriend missions in San Andreas were a step in the right direction. But real interactivity would probably only work through MMO at this point.

Or...

Imagine online an feature that would take you to a Turing-capable machine on a dedicated server system. The machine could simulate a character.

I wouldn't worry dude. Rockstar has never let us down before. They're too original and creative.

I would worry if it were other game developers, but not Rockstar. As Slim said, they never let us down.

Personally, I wouldn't mind if it was the same as SA but a lot better looking.

I doubt it'll be just a graphical upgrade. Like most of people here already said, R* won't let us down. I hope they'll make the game more interactive, though.

I wouldn't worry about it just being a graphical upgrade since they're using Euphoria now. Sure, it hasn't been confirmed, but their partnership with Natural Motions started months before we got any info about IV. Rockstar would be dumb to just use the same ol' GTA III era physics engine. But that's the thing, Rockstar isn't dumb.

No, they're using RAGE. They already made most of the game when they signed the deal with NM, so I doubt they'll redo it all.

I thought RAGE was just a graphics engine, and not a physics engine? I could be wrong, but...

whatever. We'll find out in May.

No, it's a game engine. That means it's a graphics, physics, rendering, animation and other engines in one. Maybe they'll replace the physics engine in RAGE with Euphoria, I don't know.

Yep, everything is getting an overhaul. Even if the gameplay sucks, at least everything else will rule, or at least be as good as any other next-gen game.
