There isn't much innovation possible with a new GTA. It would just be the same thing as GTA4 with just more additional features, new setting, new character, etc. but essentially it wouldn't be producing anything worthwhile. With all the new features of GTA4 (improved graphics/physics, compelling storyline, improved combat, online play, and so on), people are still complaining that the game is just too boring (usually due to the first 10-20 tutorial missions and limited amount of weapons) and that the online play is boring as well (senselessly killing people for money grows repetitive over time). Of course, the idea of redoing Vice City or finding a new location sounds interesting to me, but if it will just mean more features but no real innovation, then what's the point? The casual gamer will play it for a month or so, finish the story, and stop playing altogether, assuming they lose interest in the online experience. I remember when GTA4 first came out. I had 20+ friends online, playing GTA4 (the majority played just the storyline). Now? I might see 2 or 3 people playing GTA4, some actually coming online to play. Everyone else I see online is usually playing COD4 or Halo 3.
This post is just really stupid. I've seen one person on my list go back to CoD4 while most are still in GTA. And there is much more to do online than senseless killing, unlike Halo and CoD all there is to do is senseless killing. Theres plenty of innovation to be had with GTA. Why? Because the sky ain't even the fucking limit. Im sure they are creative enough to come up with new ways to make the next gta even better. If your saying it will be the same but with more features you may be right but thats what ALL sequels do for EVERY game.

God dammit im sick of people complaining about this game......Of course its going to more of the same thing as they continue to make new ones... But so what? The next one is always in some way or another going to be a little bit better then the last. CoD 4? Halo 3? Talk about repetition... they are awesome games, but the same can be said.
