Chicago Tribune picked TLAD launch day to run a previously unpublished interview done last November (about IV, not TLAD). Dan Houser talks in depth about why things are they way they are in GTA.

Dan Houser Speaks: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and finally, Part 4

Who would have thought that we have "Police, Camera, Action" to thank for the GTA series!

Thanks for the links. Maybe I'm reading into this too much but it seems like Dan said something and tried to cover it up by saying it was for someone's birthday...

Why would he [from New York] and people from London all met just for a birthday in Miami?

Because they know/knew someone in Miami? Or they just decided to celebrate the birthday there?
And they can afford the plane tickets?

All this sounds very familiar to me, I'm sure I've seen this interview before.

I like this quote from part IV:

QUOTE
"What next for the Scots guys? What are we going to do about this?"

And Sam and I were walking around in New York, going out for lunch, it was relatively relaxed. And he goes, "We should do New York."

And I said, "But we’ve done Liberty City."

And he says, "No, no. We should do New York properly. That’s what we should do."

And then the next big moment: Sam was going, "We need a different kind of lead character, because we’re bored of doing mobsters, and it’s getting too repetitive. We’ve got to find something new and interesting ... . Let’s do an Eastern European."


Really sums up a lot about GTA IV. Also solves lots of arguements in the NeXt forum. tounge.gif
