I will be the first to admit that this is a patently bizarre suggestion, but do you think it would be possible to add mountable horses to GTA V?

I mean it has already been established that there will be a country side of some form, and one animal from RDR (dog) has already made a return. It wouldn't that hard to include horses since both RDR and GTA V seemed to have run on the same engine.

Now, I understand that there are many reasons why they may not be included. Somewhat incongruous with the theme, the player character may not have a reasonable explanation as to why he can ride a horse, it really isn't "GTA" per se.

But still, I think it would interesting inclusion as a side diversion and it wouldn't be hard to include technically, just logically.

Thoughts?

Mmm, Grand Theft Equine.

Are there many horses in LA? Like, police horses or rural areas where horses are commonly kept?

i don't know why you would prefer to ride a horse rather than an sport car, but if animals are in the game, of course, it may be fun to ride them from time to time

Rockstar made Red Dead Redemption, a game where you do drive by's on horses instead of cars.

Both games, are amazing

Very interesting Idea. Allthough, is there much horses around LA? confused.gif You'd have to steal one from a farm or a horse race thing

Truth be told it wouldn't be all that useful. But I've suggested amusement parks, so whatever.

I can just imagine how fun a police chase on a horse would be. Galloping over car roofs during heavy traffic and firing back at the cop cars unable to get close to you. Of course most of the time you'll probably just get run down or get your horse shot to hell, but there's some potential epicness to be had here. lol

Would they use the control scheme from RDR or drive like a car? Thats what I'm worried about most of all, how'd you'd get it to control properly.

It's not grand theft aero and you can still pilot aircraft so that point is moot.

I was wordering about horses myself. Having a farm or two in the countryside seems reasonable so having animals return from Red Dead isn't really a stretch. Having ridable horses? I'm not sure it'll happen... would be good though.

It's possible to complete GTA IV with the stats showing that no vehicles have been stolen. The series has moved far beyond the title.

Honestly I wouldn't expect it, but it's totally reasonable given it's been done and VERY WELL done at that

There needs to be a mission in the countryside where you ride on horseback with a crazy guy named Jeff, whose grandfather was named Seth and had a creepy fetish for dead bodies.

Tbh i don't think R* would put such big animals in the game. Cats, dogs and birds yes but horses/cows? c'mon...

Yeah it would be awesome, but is there any mounted police in the city of Los Angeles? Or at the beaches? I know we have got mounted police in the Netherlands and they look bad-ass, especially because the bigger than normal horses. I also know that NYC has mounted police, but if LA doesn't have them I don't think mounted police or horses will be included.

However, animals and especially big animals would be an awesome addition to GTAV. Imagine a deer suddenly jumping in front of your car on the freeway, that'd be a major crash.

Yeah, I really can't see why more content and more stuff to do will "kill it" for people..... Some people on these forums are just narrow-minded....

Let's say, you go into LA and after you come out of the airport to maybe get somekind of transport, then what do you think comes and pick you up? A) a horse? B) a taxi?
Obviously you guys then say, what about countryside... But who uses horses nowadays even at countryside? This isn't Texas or anything. I suppose you may found some horses in a barn or something.. don't knwo, don't live in USA... But it won't be like in RDR.

I mentioned the possibility of this in a thread about animals the other day, which was locked because theres already a thread on animals. Anyone know where that thread is?

Anyway, I wouldn't rule it out. Would certainly make some sense of the expression 'Get back on your horse', dontyathink? ph34r.gif

Right the genesis thread, does make you think. But I kind of doubt horses, unless otherwise.
But it's alot things that have been talked about in the genesis thread, such as Los Santos and Vinewood, multiple characters in the game... Idk
