I think the next GTA V should have real cars so people dont have to mod them into the game and hack it.

Like changing the Comet to a Porshe 911 GT2?

Like changing the Super Gt to a Nissan Skyline R35 v-spec or a Ferriri 360 Spyder?

or changing the Buffilo to a Dodge Charger

And have the Graphix as Grand Trismo 5 or some thing similar.

I would love to see real based cars and most people would to.

So they make the game more... Out there or Like real life Kind

R* is being more realict gaming and this would be a 100 km foot ahead for them confused.gif

Doing that would require getting the license from the company to use those cars. And I doubt Honda, Nissan, or anybody else wants their cars depicted running down tons of civilians, transporting drugs, exploding, etc.

There's big differences in making the game "real life Kind" and "more realict"


And Rockstar is not going after "real life". GTA will never, and is nothing like real life!

Real cars. No. Don't want them. There are a whole bunch of reasons:
  1. Association with criminal activities. Two ways this might work. a) no manufacturer gets involved, but that would just leave us where we are now so no change there really. b) Some manufacturers get involved but not others leading to an odd skew in the vehicles represented.
  2. What if a manufacturer demands exclusivity? All of a sudden every single car is a Ford or GM vehicle. That'd be weird.
  3. Car manufacturers would want a fee to license their vehicles for use. Though I don't think it would be a great obstacle for Rockstar to pay a fee. But then each manufacturer may want a say in how their vehicles are represented which would probably adversely influence the creative process.
  4. As of GTA:IV, the vehicles models have got REALLY good. Many are so close to their real-life counterparts that I think it's been good of the manufacturers to turn a blind eye. I personally haven't felt the need to mod GTA:IV whereas I modded VC and SA to get the higher fidelity models.
  5. GTA's vehicles have become brands in their own right to those that play the game. Why wouldn't we want to play without the Cheetah; the Infernus; the Blista Compact and the Sentinel? They're part of the GTA universe. I mean, how many people are waiting for the return of the Kuruma?
I'll admit that some of these reasons aren't as good as others (some may not stand up well), but they are all factors to varying degrees.

GTA's vehicles are good as they are. I don't think it would be right or necessary to "go real."

Mario Man and meson are right here. It's a lot more hassle than it's worth and at the end of the day people will always mod new things into GTA games.

Having real cars in the game will probably be more time cosuming as they will have to turn to the cars company for approval first which could take up to months depending on how many cars will be dispicted in the game, but it wouldnt be bad to have them in the game but too me i think is just not the right time.

Rockstar don't only make fake cars because they have to get a license to make real cars, it's also because everything in the gta world is a spoof of real life things, so the cars are just spoofs of real life cars too. I like it better with made up cars too, it's more fun.

This.

And if they were to use real car brands then they would have to call Liberty City New York and Vice City Miami etc. and include all the RL streets and districts. If you want real life brands.. play something else.

They already have real cars, the Banshee is a Dodge Viper (Called the Dodge SRT over here (due to licensing stuff)) and the Comet is a Porsche ..... ect ect. The problem with making them too realistic and giving them the real names is the licencing agreement would take ages to go through, and if rahkstar2.gif wanted to add a car at the last minuet they would have to delay the release. I vote keep them as they are, just add more of them.

I agree with the other posters. Any self-respecting car company would not be willing to see their car damaged/stolen/blown up in a game. Same thing goes for almost everything else in the GTA series... like how New York City is called Liberty City, even though there are striking similarities. Plus if they want to alter the cars a little bit they can.

That's why in series like Need For Speed, which use real, licensed cars, there is very little damage to the cars no matter what you do.

Along with the obvious reasons found above like crime association - some of the stuff they mock in GTA IV is hilarious. It would completely the humour of the GTA series.

The Getaway didn't have much of a variety on the cars, they were all Vauxhalls or Fords. It wouldn't work with GTA.

GTA is a violent game in which no company want to take part in it, but one odd thing is other games are violent as this and they it's got sponsors to it. Dodge advertised their Nitro in Rainbow 6 Vegas in which you can't drive but can shoot at it and even blow it up.
And back in 2007 there was a gaming contest as if you win, you actually get to take home that car.

I used to want real cars, but as the years go by, it really makes zero difference what the car is called, they are pretty much identical to thier real life counterparts anyway, but now the game is a decade old, and we are talking about the 5th new installment as a 3d game (and by that I mean not top down), and the 9th if you count DLC and stories. The point I'm making is that the car names are already well established, and we are all familliar with them. I like it the way it is, but I wouldn't be too bothered if they were real.

The Kuruma wasn't my favorite car in the GTA series and i never really like it's design.
But it was a good car to drive in III for some reason.

Here it is in IV:

/End topic.

Seriously, seeing the cars come out in their different forms to respect the year the game is set in has been fun, and it will be good to see the new versions of each car in the next GTA. I don't want to drive around in a Porsche, I want to stick to my Banshee and Infernus.

No. R*/T2 are much better off with the knock offs that they have done in their games thus far.

And a noob complaining is stupid. Don't like the topic? Don't post in it, simple as that.

@OP, R* would also have to pay those car companies for using their names. Its best if R* sticks with using the similar model methods that they have been using.

I would say no. Having all of these fake cars that are based on real ones just fits the GTA theme of satire of the real world. Like how they spoof the real cities they also spoof the cars and it just adds to the experience IMO.

No.

A car that looks like a Porsche and costs R* nothing is better than trying to get a license to use one, as most car companies wouldnt want there car being used for, drive by's, hooker stomping or any thing else that could bring bad press.

Thats what the Pc version is for, put on real life car's or dildo car's if you like.

I agree with this post. And personally, I am not good with real car names. I don't want to have to memorize them all. I'd rather remember all the fictional cars in the GTA universe. Plus I always smile when I pick up a car in GTA IV that's from the older games.

They've gotten close to real production models, taking some personal liberties. In what I think was a magazine interview, Art Director at RN, Aaron Garbut commented (this is record, BTW) That the GTA car designs were so pleasing, he'd buy them if they were actual production cars!. Now I think that's a stretch from my viewpoint, but I would say they are REALLY improving the graphical detail in such a way that the GTA cars don't have to be licensed and offer an interesting NEW experience in GTA game releases because they do have unique properties. I still am a major car fan, Production and Exotic coach builders, I chose my GMmaniac gaming tag because I've only owned GM cars because of their looks first and foremost.

So, I think with some car based games, licensing is never a bad idea, but it's not paramount in getting that for GTA games franchise
