Miami seems like the most proper for the 80's (with the events of drug baron wars (would be a good use for rise and downfall of the Colombian cartels), gun smuggling operations from South America, corruption in law, nightlife, economic situations, politics and more) but it's used for Vice City. If a 80's Vice City is done again, it will probably repeat itself and would gather less attraction.
I think San Francisco would be a good setting for a 60's, 70's timeline and possibly 80's timeline. Because San Francisco was a boiling pond that time, with tripping hippies, its shining disco culture, legalizing marijuana discussions... Yeah, I think that's good.
Maybe, the most proper city to use in 80's in my opinion is Philadelphia. Philadelphia was a popular crime city that time. If you look at the criminal records of the city of Philadelphia, you can see most of the crimes had been committed in the 80's. With serial murders, crime organizations, drug dealers, frauds, gun slingers, AIDS epidemic and lawsuits for it and more that time, Philadelphia is an alternative city to use. I don't know, maybe I would think about doing a 80's Philadelphia concept.
At the end of this month, AMAI will be back with more.
Also Akaviri's 70's LC concept seems cool, just waiting for it.
