I'd agree with that comment on GTA IV. As great as the game is, it does get tedious.
GTA V, judging just on what I see in the trailer, looks like a return to the heady days of Vice City. The scenery looks memorable, the missions are looking diverse, graphics look like a wild improvement over IV and it looks like aircrafts are back!!!
I make that comment based on what's implied in the trailer so I don't have anything concrete to base that statement on, take it with a pinch of salt but Rockstar have never really let us down with the GTA series.
Even thouh 4 got boring (I didn't like the characters, the protagonist Nico, the missions weren't as diverse or entertaining at San Andreas or Vice City when they were first released and the level design was weak) it still gave a good sense of freedom within the game and the atmosphere was great.
One thing that really failed me was the fact that you spent too long looking at the Radar in the corner than watching the game. In Vice City you could show me a screenshot and I'd know where I was, same with San Andreas (to a lesser extent) but GTA didn't have that same appeal. I wouldn't be able to direct you to the nearest landmark from a screenshot, although there were some obvious parts in the game.
I'm more hyped about Saints Row 3 than this game at the moment but that's not to say it will change. When we get more information concerning the game, we'll see.
In the mean time, I have a year of Saints Row 3 and Skyrim to get through before this game even pops its head up again.
