Yup, I can agree with that. Usually I'm for both worlds as well. Though I think L.A. Noire pulled off the serious open world better than GTA IV did. I hope that IV was just an experiment and they go back to their old roots. IV seemed like they tried to mix
random destruction with super serious and they didn't clash well.
Just remember every 5 minutes: "Hey cousin, let's go bowling." -_-
