Idea : in car aiming system...

im sure im not alone in thinking the 'hold l2 to look out the window and spray uzi fire'' drive by system isnt too hot. what i propose is thus:

while your driving, obviously the left analogue stick steers, and the right analog is for camera - but if you have a weapon drawn when your fiddling with the camera, it'll come closer in (sort of an over the shoulder type view) with a crosshair allowing you some control over your aim. this system would also enable you to shoot almost in front of you, and even directly in front of you if the windshield is out. (imagine, in the height of a chase, your being shot at by the car in front, and you frantically shoot ahead, smashing the windscreen to peices and giving you a clear shooting oppuourtunity). also this this clearly easier at lower speeds where you have time to aim with less concentration on the road, and fraught with danger at higher speeds where you could crash if you dont keep steering/ try and aim for too long. you could even lie in wait outside a marks house, staking him out in your car, deliver a quick shot to the head, and speed off.

screen shots have already hintesd at more than one type of gun being available for drive bys (the one where niko's leaning out a red car) and hopefully someone at rockstars already thought of this...

what do you guys think?

That's nice idea. I am also hoping for ability to use thrown weapons, while in car.

Man, throwing a molitov out a window, just like them Duke boys, be really fun if we could hop in through the window, not to mention using a rocket launcher out the window.

Just like in Saints Row, have a target reticule move with the camera, then you could shoot. Lets hope pistols and grenades and molotovs are able to use while driving, also like in Saints Row

To be honest, I'd just prefer the old style of drive bys. It sounds a lot like True Crime's drive by style which I can't say I liked.

I think a fuller drive by system would be good, but nothing too complicated. Imagine bringing a new meaning to riding shotgun...

If you could have someone else drive you while you lean out the window blasting shit, I'd enjoy that.

I'd also enjoy leaning out the window while driving to clothesline people, or smack 'em with a baseball bat. Driveby looting anyone?

I like the idea that someone else drivs while you do the shooting..

At the end it sounds like it is going to be too hard to do drive bys with the new system (If the do re do it). But I also have trouble doing drive bys with the old way or current way so....

that sounds like a good idea, would be nice with molotovs, pistols, sub machine guns, full auto.. anything like that, would be more life like, cause now a days people are doing shit like that all the time..

I'd like that very much, drive-by's in all GTA will now that had it was boring.

But do to how there changing the Wanted system i'd sure expect them to change the Aiming system as well

Mafia's drive-by system was really enjoyable in my opinion, at least compared to GTA's.. :p

Whos says we can't hit mailboxes with the baseball bats, or knock people off their bikes(if they are included)

yeah, more guns for drive-bys, i think it's best to be kept at one handed weapons, pistols, mac10, tech9, motolovs too and they should throw in some melee weapons and u should be able to lock on during a drive by, with a new lock on system i want to be like scarface or godfather where u can move the target around and shoot em anywhere on the body

what if you had to press L2 or R2 (depending on which side you wanted to shoot at) or use six-axis and niko would stick his arm/head out the window and the right thumbstick would aim?

there was a cheat in san andreas where u could use anygun for drive bys and there was a cross hair and everything and u could aim 360 degrees around the car, and every gun u use has the same firing rate as the normal drive by guns. i used to always use it with any shotgun

Good idea, I wonder why they didn't do it in SA already! It can't be hard.
