Very very good stuff on the link Dreamspell posted:

Quoting Legend's post for emphasis:
Like Skyrim, each of the protagonists’ skills in certain disciplines – shooting, driving, flying and so on – improves the more they are used. So while Franklin will start the game as the most accomplished driver and Trevor’s time in the military means he’s the best pilot, you’ll be able to redress the balance simply by playing the game. Stamina, lung capacity, strength and stealth are also tracked, and Rockstar says new tools and boosts will be unlocked as you improve.
I'm excited. I'm sold for the game. This whole graphics argument is being driven by like... one person; not sure why it even keeps getting brought up.
They seem to be putting a lot of work into the game, and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Really like the fact that they're allowing you to play as one of the three characters too! They really seem much more engaging than the cast of GTAIV.
My only disappointment is the lack of a PC announcement. I'm really hoping with the nex-gen consoles on the way that they make a release for them as well (and PC) because otherwise, I'll be buying a Playstation 3 just for this game. (I kidd you not)
