Considering that forums exist for long dead games that weren't nearly as popular as GTA is, I'm sure not much will change, except perhaps the loss of some of the "only interested in the next game" members.

My thoughts exactly.

Ditto. That and the overall quality of posts would increase significantly.

GTAF will still be around, the game sub forums will be pretty much very unactive and all the veterans will stick around or at least give a quick look now and again. Been here since 2007 and I may not be as active as I was when I started - I'll still stick around and I'm sure many other people will too. General Chat will still be active for all the banter.

there must still be active forums about older gaming series that are no longer produced, lots of people probably would leave ( the fanboys in the v section for example) but I'm pretty sure lots of people would still stay and post in the gta section.

Mass hysteria, riots in the street, self immolation, poo smeared over walls in protest, a total break down of law and order. It will inevitably be blamed on "those bloody immigrants".

For serious, I think it would be silly to assume that GTAForums will just die off with GTA. Plenty of other old games, long discontinued, still have avid and active fanbases, especially if those games are moddable.

We'd all turn to the drink, and cry until we can no longer cry and lose all the water in our body...






Or the forum will continue to last with modding discussion, tricks, events, and gangs; but hey, I'm thinking outside the box.

Join? You mean we could take over. Re-name this forum TLOZF.net. Keep our members and keep the GTA sections as service areas.

It would be renamed chucknorrisforums.com and would become a shrine to all that it Chuck Norris.

Or Platty. He deserves his own forum, since he's not English. Oh, and for STEAK of course

Perhaps a Forum all about Deep Throat, imagine DT without GTA?!? What would he possibly do then??

the forum will not end with the end of the series, this is obvious. we are still talking about GTA III and vice city, and thanks to mods the end is very, very far away. plus, my dream is that, by the end of the series, members of R* will come here to talk freely about the making-o and secrets of gta.

The main danger comes from us : i've seen some forums dying after a "civil war" between users and staff members, or after an invasion of spammers and fakes... now it seems unlikely, but it isn't impossible.

There's already plenty of places on the net to find stuff like that...

Naw... we'd need someone 'bigger', probably John Goodman, or someone British, like Robbie Coltrane.

It will eventually wither away and die. Much like the ruins of ancient structures and buildings, it will decompose over time until it is but a shell of it's former self. The lights will burn out. The wind will carry it's whispers past it's corpse. And only the bare naked trees and hollow ground will be it's only friend. It will be nothing but a place time forgot. An empty haunting palace of forgotten treasures. And carry with it into oblivion the sea of the dead.

*ahem*
Sorry. Listening to Medwyn Goodall does that to ya. Reading H.P. Lovecraft helps too.

In all seriousness, probably just a chatting site to talk about GTA after it's over. I doubt it'll ever end though. It's one of the largest game series of all time. R* would be stupid to end it. And even if they do, another company would no doubt continue it.

No more GTA?

No but seriously GTAF would probably become Ye Olde Auto Theft Site and the old Grand Theft Auto sections would still be active, as would the General Chat sections.

Many members will up sticks and leave, but some will still stay for either the nostalgia, to keep the series alive, or just to talk about whatever in the General Chat sections.
