Top-down view?

Remember in GTA III one of the camera views was a top-down view like the classic GTA games? Would you guys like to see that option returned to the series? You could still play the game like normal, but just have this extra feature.

I loved using it in GTA III. It's not something you'd use all the time, but fun every once in a while for laughs. I was disappointed that it wasn't in VC.

Can't see it being an option in GTA IV, it also stopped in GTA III, the only way is forward.

Wouldn't hurt to have it, but it's not needed at all. So I'd really go either way with this.

But would you like to see it returned? That's all I'm asking.

Yes. Play it like that sometimes and imagine you're playing gta1 but with awesome graphics. In my mind, it would rock.

I wouldn't really use it if it did return, doesn't really serve a purpose other nostalgic reasons.

I say the more views the better. I'd rather have a first person view though.

Heh, I hope they really add to the camera, being able to pan around the character, and switching to first person view (Please R*, I want first person!) And well, the top down view isn't really a hassle, it's just putting the camera above the person, so I don't see why not.

Hopefully with more elevation though, I'd hate to be drivin really fast and see that dead end, not bein able to turn without lighting my car up.

Yeah, It'd be sweet to see it return. As ReLLo said though, with more elevation. It was too close in GTA III.

tbh, I only used that view for GTAIII because my computer wasn't good enough, a new graphics card fixed that and I never used it again.
