| Proper taxi missions is the one thing I really missed in IV, yeah you could do them for Roman early on in the game but it wasn't the same. You should be able to jump in any taxi and press the thumb stick and pick up passengers, I used to spend ages on Vice City and San Andreas getting 50 in a row bonuses and sh*t. |
The reason I liked them is they had a sense of context. Roman owned a taxi depot so it made sense. I hope GTA V follows suite. Side missions need depth to them like they were in GTA IV IMO.
While you are correct that it was better in the sense that it was immersive, it was not better that after a certain point they were removed and you could not do them again. That makes the game far too linear and not the sandbox we know.
To make it more realistic you could possibly ring up and work for other taxi companies possibly?
I too hope there are a greater variety of taxis, and that taxis have the makeover that vigilante had in IV.
