Well one reason I would surely give as to why they should include Staten Island is that we have all the country and parkland that others borough lack. Staten Island has the most parkland of all the 5 boroughs and the tallest mountain on the entire eastern seaboard!

And how will this make gameplay more fun?

Have you no motivation, sir? biggrin.gif

On the real, though, it's pointless to have Staten Island just because of "valuable" land and a nice golf course and a high peak, blah, blah, blah - what exactly could you do? Staten Island would do nothing but a waste of space in my opinion.

Though it would be good for a quick bout of boredom to just check things out, I'm glad Rockstar opted out of Staten Island and included New Jersey.

New Jersey - more than just New York's trash!

Honestly, I have no idea. moto_whistle.gif I saw people complaining in another post about how this Liberty City will be almost like Stillwater in Saint's Row in that there's only houses, buildings, skycrapers, etc. everywhere and nowhere to escape that like in San Andreas.

What is it with me and vice???, drugs, weapons, scarface, CSI

the only crap about london was the good movie "Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels", but england has tight laws on weapons, the architecture is too f*ckin old it's not a big metropolis like LC or VC, and crime goes as far as smugglers or gangbangers confused.gif , london WAS a gta city and a crappy one at that:angry:

f*ck you, it's BENEFIT and i have more posts than you confused.gif

As for the missing borough, my opinion from the pictures is that if staten island is not a metropolis-like-area, then the fun of IV could be focused on the things you can do in the city, i don't know what, but it surely is something we cannot do in staten, start thinkin people, this could be a good giveaway from Houser!!!

Sorry for the double post but has anyone thought that the fifth borough could be something different than staten???, some dude who was tracking deepthroat pointed it could be Bogota (episodic content), you could obviously travel there somehow, i know the topic is precisely about staten but...

Thats whats "New jersey" Is going to be modeled after of. Jersey City.


After Jersey City New JErsey Is Just A Huge Swamp.







And i think staten island shouldnt be put in GTA4. As a resident of Staten Island it's clear too me it would be a waste of time.

Portrichmond would just be about the only place worth putting into the game and even then its just a Illegal Mexican Slum which used to be a good place to be.


BTW Todt Hill is a very gay place.

about that the ferry goes nowhere.. you can see in the trailer that the ferrydock looks completely abandoned. just like in real life, it's out of business. so yeah the ferry goes nowhere.

This is the real ferry terminal. Not abandoned and newly renovated.

Sorry for digging up an old topic (I was searching the pinned IV forums directory).
I believe, as someone said earlier in the topic, the reason why Staten isn't in the game is geographical.

http://upload.wikime..._From_Space.jpg

This pic above (don't know how to imbed the f*cking thing) shows NYC (including Northern bit of Staten & the Eastern side of NJ state). It's obvious that if Staten was included, that the shape of the map would be a bit mishapen. However when it is taken out, the map of the covered boroughs/cities in Liberty is basically a square (making it much easier to make). I'm sure if Staten was geographically placed where NJ city is, that it would've been included due to the fact that it still is NYC... however since it doesn't have that much to offer (according to most people on this thread), the fact that it is geographically difficult to incorporate into the game map, probably confirmed its being left out of the game.

I had an oreo today and guess what..no filling. Those bastards forgot my filling. Two blacks with no white equals no harmony. My point? Tough sh*t, life goes on. I ate that damn cookie whether I liked it or not. Move on my friend. There are plenty of oreos with filling.

Good luck with those oreos then mate. I have no problem with Staten Island being left out of the game, I'm from Australia and have no connection or care about SI. Just was reading this topic and decided to post what I thought was a logical reason to why it was left out. No need to be a smart arse.

EDIT: Dickhead below me, read this post, I don't care that Staten isn't in the game.

So basically we are looking at a game map that has no suburbs, whatsoever... The New Jersey part of the game is going to be Jersey City, since newark is beyond that and all newark is good for is a airport 'since we wont have planes in the game no point really'.

I would have loved to seen Staten Island, since its where I was born. However action wise its not a very intense place. Staten Island is where the mob would live and relax... All the violence happened in the other boroughs.

Suicide is the only option for the OP. If it were me and I was left out? I'd either kill myself (but only badl enough where I could come right back to life) or riot. But that's just me. I live on the edge.

Thats because Jersey is mentioned in real life more then Staten.

relax man.. godforbid your city isnt goodenough to make the Rockstar Cut.

You kno how badly I wish a GTA could take place in my city? Id be able to reconize streets.. places.. buildins.. would be awsome. Plus, if GTA did do my city, it would have the catchiest nickname ever.

Grand Theft Auto: Greater Toronto Area

ya dig? say.. wasnt your precious Staten island in GTAIII? Stop your moaning
