for 3 reasons:
1. the movement of the character(Why for the love of god does GTA V guy need 3 meters of space to turn around?), parkour, climbing on buildings...
2. Fight ...it would be great if Rockstar put these things
3. Connect the history and the present... these two worlds in one map, everything would be turned like in a movie Doctor Strange hahaha 😄
Would you ROGers add something else?
question for Bahz: Is it okay to post pictures with text. like this?
If these two games ever gets combined, I think it would be a best seller. Saint's Row IV * and No Man's Sky.
Now, No Man's Sky lacks a lot of things: good graphics, structures, civilization, intelligent aliens, advanced society and vehicles, story. And its gameplay is quite boring. But No Man's Sky offers exploration in a very vast universe. The idea is really there, but too bad they failed to deliver.
Saint's Row 4 on the other hand offers a lot of good things. It has really good graphics, detailed structures and streets, interesting storyline, tons of missions, and very likeable characters. But the best thing about it is how they were able to depict civilizations and society well, both human's and Alien's.
So imagine if we combine those two formulas. A game where you can explore the universe, visit many planets. And those planets will have things in it to depict its civilization. It could be a civilization same as ours. It could be futuristic with tall buildings, dyson spheres, hover cars, intelligent beings. It could be a bit uncivilized, like with stone houses, less intelligent beings, huge creatures.
The game would also not focus on mining minerals, it would have a story. And knowing Saint's Row 4 characters, the story would most likely be about conquering planets, galaxies, and the entire universe for fun. It would have tons of small missions on different planets. The main character is going to be fully customizable. You would have custom appearance, voice, and could bear almost any weapon in the universe. Weapons that you could use to kill aliens, and you'd probably be hunted by an entire planet.
I think overall, this would be an insanely fun game. Although it would probably require a huge disk space, probably on terabytes.
* For those who are not familiar with Saint's Row IV, it's an open world game a bit similar to GTA games, except it has sci-fi involved.
