SEMTEX Posted October 25, 2011 Share Posted October 25, 2011 As mad as it sounds the best innovation for GTA5 would be to remove that mini-hud in the corner of the screen. It shows everything in the game world which effectively kills the suspense of the game. Not only does it draw a simple path for you to follow when driving between locations but it also handily highlights all of the enemies as red dots so what should be a cautious exercise in working through an area becomes a simple task of spotting the dots and taking them out systematically. If you turn it off in the options on GTA4 it becomes a much better game as you don't instantly know you have cleared out an area allowing you to charge up towards the next dot on the map. It's a much more cautious and edgey experience. I found I also learned more of the map from paying attention to the buildings and landmarks in the game instead of just following the line around the map. In fact the radar is what killed any chance of the online mode being fun as well. Never thought of it that way. The 3rd person shooter missions have allways been piss poor tbh, mainly for the reasons you've stated. It maybe an idea to take the dots off the radar, but I don't see why you'd not have the radar as a GPS, with landmarks shown. It's not like that's unrealistic. Driving around these cities, not knowing where I'm going... I'd turn off the game within half an hour. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
