Personally, I think a GTA set in the 70's would kick arse. Rock music, cocaine, you cant go wrong. Setting it in the future would be lame. Surely everyone knows games or movies that are set in the future are almost always gay.

But, as for which city........I have no idea.

We deff need a remake of GTA sanandreas...i miss many of the features from SA.

If we dont get a remake og SA or something.

FLORIDA xD find that motherf*cking lawyer fa**ot i cant remember the name of's house and bomb it xD

Or do Brazil or something. Go burn down the rainforest  biggrin.gif

Venezuela...i want Venezuela. Wait, Mercenaries 2 is doing Venezuela...awesome.

Well they wont be able to have the nice graphics, it took 4 years for this game. I wonder how long it will take to remodel the whole SA city^^

If they do, I hope its different from the previous SA; more like IV and only after they remake VC ftw.

tbh if they were to remake San Andreas i would personally be hoping for a minimal character customisation feature, this will upset all the kids who want purple mohawks but tough luck. The character depth we have seen in GTA 4 cannot be achieved by a fat man running about with pink hair, i truely hope if they do remake an old gta 4 city it will be mature as was with gta 4's take on liberty city.

If you want to make a 300lb fat asain with green hair wearing a pimp suit, saints row 2 is on its way! smile.gif

About a quarter of the world drives on the left, and the countries that do are mostly old British colonies. This strange quirk perplexes the rest of the world; but there is a perfectly good reason.

In the past, almost everybody travelled on the left side of the road because that was the most sensible option for feudal, violent societies. Since most people are right-handed, swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent and their scabbard further from him. Moreover, it reduced the chance of the scabbard (worn on the left) hitting other people.

Furthermore, a right-handed person finds it easier to mount a horse from the left side of the horse, and it would be very difficult to do otherwise if wearing a sword (which would be worn on the left). It is safer to mount and dismount towards the side of the road, rather than in the middle of traffic, so if one mounts on the left, then the horse should be ridden on the left side of the road.

I loved Vice City but it's time to leave it behind and focus on greener pastures. Namely a different country.

It probably WON'T be london. As Sony are developing the Getaway 3... so for rockstar to remake London... seems like a little too much competition.

I doubt it would be any European city, as they don't really capture the comedy aspect of the mass marketed, cheaply advertised, wholesale loving economy of America. Which we have all come to love as part of the comedic value of the GTA franchise.

I would strongly expect it to be a return to an american city.. I think they would also try and go with a different lighting style, Liberty City is quite grey lots of dull colours in the environment. Perhaps they would do something a little more colourful, they're are plenty of vibrant cities out there: Tokyo would be an interesting location... and it's a massive conurbation.

New Orleans would make a f*cking crazy ass setting for the next GTA

I can just imagine riding down the street and driving by a park and see some Jamaicans or Haitians playing soccer, and getting in trouble with some Creole or Honduran cartel.

The thing is though, there are like no gangs in New Orleans... it's just organizations and crime families... it's like IV's rendition of Liberty City. It would be crazy you would go to Jackson Square and rob somebody and go to to the East or the 9th Ward and random peds will have AK-47s and pistols with extended clips and everything.

but it would have to be present day because I don't care who you are... unless you had some atom bombs or something, there's no way you could do the stuff you do in GTA in 1994 New Orleans and live... it would be unrealistic. Plus the government would be pissed off.

70's sound like a good idea, but i'd rather go for modern day Vice, just look at CSI: Miami, it can't go wrong.

Im so sick of Vice City fanboys! Wake up ok, Vice City was the most boring and bland location they ever did, it was flat, had about 10 roads on each island and every road looked the same, and it was damn tiny! It took about 5 minutes to drive round the hole island. I have before mentioned intrest in having it back, only because IMO it had the most potential as a GTA city. A city of Vice, full of drugs and sex, as far as GTA is concerned thats great, but only if they completely gave it a make over and vastly extended it. Other than that Vice City is crap!

Lets face it, people only love Vice City because of Tommy, who wern't even that great, people seem to jerk of as soon as they here the name Tommy V, that was in the past! Im sure Tommy is doing good, collecting his pension, and looking at the palm trees though an old folks home window. Happy now?

i do agree that if it were to carry on the series and go to VC, then it should be set in early 90's, and not as tommy! and as for the map, they can always expand the map and add further areas/islands. It would definetly be a more colourful change of scene to the dreary setting of LC.

How come no one has thought of Philadelphia? id love to see that! (and no, not the main charecter as "the fresh prince or jazzy jeff" haha but that would be a cool side charecter duo lol)
Maybe play as an ex sports star who got rejected due to drug problems and getting in the wrong scene outside of it, he trys to get himself together, but due to his past he gets forced to participate in some major deals??

but in my own little world, it would be awsome to see GTA:South Wales!! haha be funny, instead of shooting the pidgeons go round and snipe off the sheep!!! Join the 'Soul Crew' (football hooligan society)

How the hell would you know? San Andreas was by far the most popular and best selling GTA before IV came out.

Millions would love to see San Andreas again. And the next GTA doesn't HAVE to be Vice City.

With Miami, Orlando, New Orleans, Houston, Havana and Port-au-Prince as the main cities. Doubt it is gonna happen though. What concerns me most about the next GTA is if R* are finally going to give us enough ways to spend cash...imagine playing on this map and being able to buy yachts, any apartment, all kinds of vehicles, your own air/seaport or business or f*** it why not Disneyland?

It can be set in Vice City, but this time I recommend a modern one, probably in year 2009 and 2010...

You know I like that idea although with Rockstar re-creating these areas in their own images and names though. They could do a similar job to San Andreas as in call the game the state or area name for instance Ventura Isles or something. I just feel that if Vice City has to come into it atleast go to town and expand it so its more then just Vice City.

My opinions of all of the suggested cities:

-Vice City: In the '80s, no. That setting's been done to death. However, a modern Vice City could be possible, incorporating elements of the Dirty South.

-Las Venturas: Tied with Los Santos as my favorite idea yet. The glitter of Vegas didn't really come through with the graphics on the last-gen consoles - it could really use a next-gen makeover. Bonus points if it's set in the late 1970s, with a plot based off of Scorcese's Casino and references to blaxploitation films.

-Los Santos: Rockstar could go all-out with its social satire in this grand palace to American popular culture. It's changed dramatically since 1992, so now there are new targets. Where there were once the Crips and the Bloods, there's now the Latin Kings and MS-13, and where there was once 90210, there's now The OC and The Hills. The main character would have to be Latino.

-London: How can you go wrong with one of the most distinctive cities on the planet, especially one with a crime problem like London's? Simple: you can't. Unlike most foreign cultures, Britain's is fairly well-known to most Americans - after all, they used to be our colonial masters. We should easily understand most of the cultural nuances, and as for those we don't (football firms, for example), we should have no problem picking them up. A modern London setting is up there with 1970s Las Venturas and modern Los Santos as one of my favorite ideas.

-Tokyo: Japanese culture would be impossible to translate for Americans. There's just too much of a gap between the way we think and the way they think in Japan. This is the same reason why nearly any Asian locale (with the possible exception of Hong Kong) is unsuitable for a GTA game - the culture is just too radically different from our own.

-San Fierro: This city doesn't have a storied history of crime, which is a fatal flaw for a GTA setting. It's a shame, too - San Fierro was arguably the most beautiful city of the GTA III era. The only era that San Fierro would work in would be the late 1960s.

-Seattle: Same problem as San Fierro. What do you think of when you hear of crime in Seattle? Microsoft monopolizing the software industry?

-Chicago: Now this is a city famous for producing world-class criminals. A Prohibition-era GTA set in Chicago would be appropriately gritty, and its setting in the Roaring Twenties - just before the Great Depression - would offer plenty of opportunity for satire on our current situation. There's just two problems, though. First, Mafia did this setting first, and it did it pretty damn well. Secondly, a key ingredient of any GTA game is its selection of radio stations. Most people probably won't be that pleased with listening to jazz, classical, and big band throughout the game. Concerning the idea of a modern Chicago: it just wouldn't work. Not only is it too similar to New York, it might also elicit comparisons to Saints Row's Stilwater, which is supposed to be based on Chicago, Detroit, and other Midwestern cities.

-St. Louis: It's got a big crime problem, sure, but it's just not a very recognizable city. Plus, there's the Saints Row comparisons to worry about.

-Houston: This city's big, but it has no personality to speak of. It's just endless suburbs. If you want to do the Dirty South, do a modern version of Vice City.

-New Orleans: No. Just no. Not even Rockstar's brave enough to go there.

The technology will always continue to get better, by yall logic we will be stuck doing the same 3 cities over and over again so that they can be "updated" them. f*ck this nostalia bullsh*t.

I completely agree with OG Bobby Johnson (lol). I couldn't have said it better myself.

Get over VC and SA. Its in the past. Move the hell on. Yes, they were good and great and wonderful but you all are limiting the possibilities. Why in the world would you want to replay the same two games, the same two maps when there could be something bigger and better?! mercie_blink.gif
