Advice. Leave it alone and come back when we have something to go by.

The theory in brief is that the admins orchastrated this whole game stemming from deep-throat's first posts back in 07 in order to keep us busy until Rockstar reveals information about GTA V. There is is no actual answer at the end of the puzzles though accept that they serve to reveal evidence of an admin initiated plan to lead us all on a wild goose chase, albeit with the best intentions.

I truely believe that's what Andy meant when he said that Watchmen had a lot to with what the other admins are doing. It's a great possibility that their actions weren't based directly on the plot of Watchmen however, Andy was just able to make the comparasen because he is a self confessed "comicbook nerd".

This theory may not hold water. But Andy, in the podcast, went out of his way to draw parallels to watchmen and rorshach. There has to be a reason for that. He even confesses to being a comic geek (not the exact term, but you get the idea).

What I would ask andy is if he knew about Rorscharchs before he read or saw Watchmen, because all thing aside, the Rorscharcs theme applies to nearly everything in the world.

At the end all is what you see (I would complement with "feel") in things.

That being said, some of us feel vice-y, some San Andreas-wise, some just feel GTA-ish depending on what they would like the most to see.

I consider myself just wanting to see a new GTA.

But going back to inkblots... could it be a real decision making-game changing situation starting here? I mean, on Pokemon games you pick a color of pokemon version and that changes some stuff a bit; moreover, you pick a pokemon to start with.

How would a "you make the calls" GTA be like? With different locations and content depending on your decisions? different stories and endings, built over what you want to see.

IV had a bit of this but the difference was mainly some rewards and different cutscenes but imagine you start being chased through Liberty and get to a freeway with a bunch of roadblocks and just to exits, one saying "Vice" and the other "SA"? but knowing that if you pick one you won't be able to see the other unless you 'finish' the game and start over again...

It's not impossible, but actually I don't think so - and I'm generally a massive cynic.

All this effort just for a wild goose chase? When there's a real danger you'll p155 a lot of your fans off when they find out it's a load of crap?

I think the senior admins, who reportedly have connections at R* have known where V is going to be set for a very long time. A project this size, they have to start constructing the virtual city years in advance. So quite a few people know. No one is going to provide definitive proof because they could be sued (R* employees, that is). But there's nothing to stop dropping an unverrifiable hint.

In any case, if it's not a genuine reference, the joke is on them. 177k impressions and counting, you've got to pay good money for that sort of advertising, and you've got it here for free.

The runway in 4 being distinct "V" shape, coincidence? Probably is. I didn't notice this untill recently. I i'm probably just over thinking things reading all the theories.

I think he means GTA IV.

They haven't put that much effort in: just google some pictures, find map references and photoshop another picture then just sit back and watch the posts roll in. As for angering the fans, they've already found out that they can string out this sort of thing for a 300 pages, all but admit it was messing around, and lose very few users ("where is the blue?"). In fact, those users are the most vocal and into it when they start again!

At the moment, the best we can take from Chevy Chase's posting again is that maybe there's going to be some news soon, and that maybe his post gives some hint at where GTA V will be, but we won't know for a while yet. Everything else is supposition and wishful thinking.

He means GTA IV, at the end of TBoGT when the plane takes off in the credits the lights make out a V shape.

If he knows something,than yes.Basically he said "No London","Continuing the series in settings already established" and than mentioning VC,which sounded a pretty accidental, quickly followed by laugh, "if" or in "theory".

So it would be some sort of "enhanced" HD collection of the same GTA III series? I don't see it likely but anyways if the majority of the clues (or a simple statement) point to that... then it could be.

I'm not saying that GTAIV is the HD equivalent of GTAIII because there are several differences but returning to my pokemon example, you had red, green and blue and then you didn't get red, green and blue advanced or DS or 3DS right? (correct me if I'm wrong but I can't find another quick way of explaining it.

He mentioned about Rockstar re-doing cities, saying San Andreas may not be that feasible, but Vice City, would be. He seemed to say it with authority as if it wasn't opinion... then later said he'd said too much...

I was wondering if the whole Washington State - Washington D.C was referring to Vice State - Vice City?

It was referring to "triangulation" thing.Washington D.C is not placed in Washington state,WS is above California,where Seattle is.

You clearly put a lot of work into that, and it was very readable.

I have to say though; a very similar theory has already been proposed a number of times in this thread with, dare I say it, rather more succintness.

Are the admins behind the clues? Quite possibly so. Can they do that from a basis as uninformed as ours? I'd presume not.

I have alluded to it before meself and the reason the theory is so elaborately explained is because I think that is the only way I could have effectively put it accross.

I'm not sure what you mean about the uninformed basis though.

I believe he's questioning whether the higher-ups could have executed something like what you suggest in your (excellent) theory without knowing more than we do.

EDIT @Paddster: That also seems to be quite an astute hypothesis.

As I've said before, but it bares repeating here, even if it is San Andreas or Vice City, the games will not be anything like the III era ones.

If they do San Andreas, they most likely won't have all the craziness again. It will likely have a more cohesive story line that doesn't have anything to do with a random "gangsta" going on to run a casino in LV.

Likewise, if they do Vice City, and especially if its not in the 80s again, it will have a way different vibe. Vice City the game's setting was more the culture of 80s Miami instead of Miami itself.

Now on the other hand, they could always have a new setting, with the same craziness of San Andreas.

So all this arguing about the previous games is just stupid. They have no bearing whatsoever on the next GTA.
