Actually, despite initially lagging behind technological and econimical development, their social development as a country is now catching up, so they are very socially advanced and developed - now it seems even overtaking the more traditional Western areas.

And what the f*ck is "Cravihammed" - an ignorant racist attempt to make fun of Arabic names, which actually only worked now to show your own small-mindedness.
Arabic does not have a 'V' letter or sound in the alphabet - and Vivien is the only name in the Arab world to have a 'V' that I know of.
Times like this I find myself attracted to Eugenics!

As for Dubai being a GTA-setting - I'd say a definate no. First, I doubt there is any major criminal groups or organisations there, and crime is pretty low since it's relatively such a small Emerate. Even the whole UAE is too small as a country to have major crime. The only thing I can think of there is wannabe-gangsta car modders.

Secondly, I'd think R* would have a lot of trouble making fun and parodying a culture they know very little of - and the UAE's extremely multi-racial demographic is constantly changing too - so by the time they finnally got the hang of it, it would probably be significantly different.

I'd stay they better stick closer to what they know. US, UK or preferably, a GTA2-like World/Anywhere-City.

Dubai? No Crime what so ever!!

I've been there 5 odd times, very nice - Its got the money, poshest hotel in the world, tallest building in the world, first man made island in the world but it wouldn't work.

Without a doubt, I'd LOVE it, but its a little impossible - Sorry!

Nice thought though. colgate.gif

Meh, that's unfortunately true. And anyway, the whole game would be based on streetracing or something.
Haha, and it'd be cool to see if Niko made Playboy X move to Dubai so he'd bloody well realize that DUBAI ISN'T IN AFRICA.

Now that I think of it, GTA really can't be outside of the US. Maybe I'm on drugs right now, but my opinions recently changed.

I saw that name at the top. I lol'd. If you're going to stereotype, do it right. Enough of this half ass sh*t. And if not, keep that flapper closed the f*ck up.

But seriously, sand castles? Your thinking of a beach, stupid. And either way, Dubai is quite the developed place for a country in "the sandcastle region"

No, I'm not Muslim or Middleastern, but seriously? That was worse than most black and woman stereotype combined!

That being said, why the hell would GTA go to Dubai of all places? Besides having a lot of unnecessarily all buildings and fancy man made islands, what's so special about it? And exactly what language do they speak there, and how many ethnicities other than [UAE] call that place home?

Welcome to sandcastles.
