Default Where are open crime world games going?

Since picking backup Saints Row 2 and playing that several nights, bugs aside, I'm astounded at how much better I prefer its gameplay over GTA4.

There are certainly lots of activities and things to do in SR2 but what's next?

What's the next leap or game addition going to be to make these games impressively fun?

Hopefully GTA goes back towards San Andreas gameplay. I spent so many hours just driving a Taxi in San Andreas, but it was too annoying to do the same with IV.

SR2 had some great things too, really liked the Auto customization and what not. Not sure where the Genre is going, but would like it to continue offering an increase in optional side tasks.

You'd think GTA, for eg, being grand theft auto would actually involve more theft of vehicles. Your very own Chop Shop would be kinda cool IMO. Grab cars, Sell the parts/Cars.

adding in some more fleshed out RPG elements would be nice too.

Every floor of every building and house should be explorable.
Jump out windows of said buildings and houses
Buildings and houses should have npc's inside; I want to paint a busy office red and ruin a family bbq.
More realistic police behavior. ie not get a star for running over bunch of bums in an alley at 3 in the morning. people panic if you have a gun drawn in daylight, cops get involved.
Replace the girlfriend **** with becoming a pimp or something. Recruit bitches. Make rounds and if a bitch don't pay up... well **** there could be a side mission to that as well. Finding some broke ass that didn't pay and brusied my product!
A great amount of side missions.
character customization;
FULL LIFE CONSEQUENCES (decions affect the the story line)
Bigger map (like SA but BIGGER! Country side with farm animals is a must)
Hell, include a Zoo.
No magic (m4 and rpg taken out of one's pockets) Cars have trunks, use them?
Not have a locked npc during train travel, how about roam the carts and mug people at gun point?
Same for taxis, why not point a gun to the cabi's head? "Now drive slowly and don't look back" Breaking into expensive cars and hiding in the back, waiting for the owner (Here randomly side missions could be generated with the car owner spilling their guts to you out of fear of being killed.

Don't worry. The attempts made died faster than... I don't know, pick an unsuccessful actor. Hell, they were terrible, and they died quickly and quietly.

Don't worry about it.

I'm thinking APB will put most MMO ideas to rest.

I would love to see the PC processing all of of that.

Actually, that wouldn't be too difficult. It would be more difficult for the Artists/Designers than anything. You'd more likely just end up with generic Interiors with slight colour changes/Item placement.

Destruction. That's the next step that needs to happen. Then the addition of construction crews to repair the city too.

I suppose Just Cause 2 could be added to this mix. But all JC2 added was a grapple.
