Growing GTA IV

GTA IV Will Use Cars’ Trunks. “Press LB to open trunk.” That’s what a pop-up command told Official Xbox Magazine as a Rockstar representative approached a vehicle from the rear while demoing the game.

Well we sure hope there’s a lot more to the game than that. The trunk thing could have been implemented way back in GTA3. It just made no sense unless you stored things there. Presumably you might be able to dump a body in there or a bomb or whatnot. I suppose it adds a degree of interactivity to the GTA world but I’d much rather see more interactive NPC’s and buildings.

Flocks of identical NPC’s that you can’t interact with besides violently doesn’t carry your interest for very long. Scattering simple missions across random NPC’s on the streets would be a good idea. And doing more with the interiors of buildings would be nice though Grand Theft Auto Vice City and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas already did a lot in that regard. But wouldn’t it be cool to be able to bust down the door of one of the brownstones that appeared in the GTA IV Trailer.
