DAILY MANIFESTO

REALLY!?! GTA V's Map Is Very Big

Posted on Tuesday, January 3 @ 09:49:50 Eastern by
My REALLY!?! rants usually point a finger at a developer or other industry figure that says something obnoxious, blatantly obvious, or downright bullshit, and they deserve to be called on it. This time, the developer in question, Rockstar's Dan Houser, has said nothing out of the ordinary. It's that a publication decided to make a attention-grabbing headline out of a simple statement, and try to pass it off as if it's this major breaking news piece.

Have you heard the news?



I'm leaving out the author's name and the name of the publication for various reasons, but there you go. I mean, can you even believe this? GTA 5's map... very big? Unfathomable. Go ahead, scoop your jaws up from the floor, I'll wait.

Look, I get it, it's been slow. It always is this time of the year. But to act like a Grand Theft Auto game having a large map is "news" is a more heinous crime than the game's namesake. This is akin to saying a Star Wars game will have lightsabers, the next Halo game will have shooting, or the next Final Fantasy will suck - it's a fucking given.

Here's what Dan Houser said in full in a recent interview for GameInformer (GI aren't the ones with this shitty headline):
I've got to be real careful here, or they will drag me through the office and whip me with barbwire. I will stick to exactly what's in the press release. It's Los Santos and the surrounding countryside - and a very big map.
I will do the honor of translating into layman's terms:
I can't talk about the game yet, but there will be a big map - just like every Grand Theft Auto game.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that Grand Theft Auto will also feature some sort of storyline, cutscenes, a cast of Hollywood voice-actors, some driving aspects, and more. Boom goes the dynamite. No need for anymore coverage of the game until it's released. Right?
