I was just thinking about the DLC for IV. Same city but you play as different characters with different stories but the 3 characters all come across each other in their lives. Been a while since I played them but in BOGT it's during the bank robbery and I'm sure that Niko was seen/mentioned in LOAT.

I like the way R* do DLC. I had no intention of buying them until they released them on separate discs. They are their own separate games. I read that they aren't gonna do DLC like that anymore.

MAYBE that's because they are gonna include it in the original game itself? When you begin the game you can choose between 3 characters to play as. The guy on the balcony, the guy who is getting chased by cops and some other character. Each story is different so it's not like it's the same story but from a different point of view. Their stories could tie in together at some point.

I'd consider that as a bold direction. It's not been done in GTA game before. It would give the game much more replay value. It would also explain the 1000 page script (rumour) that V has. Finish one story then onto the next. Finish that and then onto the last! There are so many possibilities! The first character could have a fun light hearted story like the classic GTA games. The second could have a serious story like IV had and the third...who knows?

Just wanted to share with you all smile.gif What do you think of it?

Ey mate, just having a laugh. Personally, I wouldn't like a femal protagonist, it just wouldn't be right with all previous games (other than GTA 1, 2) having males.

I just find krspkbl's topic fascinating in that he came up with it himself without outside influence from others that had the same idea, which just goes to show it's one of those naturally occurring and inevitable ideas - kind of like several inventions in history whereby multiple people, disconnected from one another, were working on the same thing, and one just beat the other and became famous (e.g. invention of the telephone or motorcar). Another example is all the games at the recent E3 that had a bow and arrow, or two separately disconnected films on the life of Coco Chanel that came out in 2009.

This just further goes to show that those at Rockstar naturally saw this as the next step as well and makes me believe more that this is the bold new direction.

As much as I hate comparing GTA to Call Of Duty, no. Multiple Protagonists are what seems to make Call of Duty, well, Call of Duty. If we have multiple protagonists in V, then GTA VI'll be in first person.

Good idea I wouldn't mind this.

But I definitely know that there's going to be a father son relationship in this game idk if this has been mentioned cause it's pretty hard to miss but someone in the trailer yells dad.

You brought up some good points like the 1000 page script I never knew about that and also about the dlc

I didn't mean it like that. I don't mean that you'll play as one character in one mission then the next you'll be a different person.

What I mean is that instead of just one story there will be three. One for each character. When you first load the game up it says "Pick your character" just like you had a choice between LOAT/BOGT in Episodes from LC. You can choose from either the guy who is being chased by cops, the guy on the balcony or someone else. You'll be playing as the same character throughout the entire story. The stories are separate from each other but they will tie in together at some point.

It would give the game much more replay value. You finish the first story, at this point in previous games it would be game over, and you have a new story still to play! Finish the second one and you go on to the last!

A troll? wtf. I don't troll. I only posted a topic with an idea.

Next time I'll just not bother posting it, right? cause this forum is full of f*cking assholes like you who are all like "not this sh*t again!" "this has been posted before" so what if it has? just leave and let the people who actually want to discuss the topic do so!

So in your scenario is the whole map open from the beginning or are some parts locked at first like RDR and every GTA game to date? Do you have to re-open the map with each different protag? I'm guessing no because all the islands were open in TLAD/TBOGT.

Also if GTAV has skills like in San Andreas (driving, shooting, flying, etc.) will you have to build those up for each character?

Overall I think your ideas is good.

I like the way the iv'th era planned out. Luis, Niko, Johnny live completely different lives and to play as them was awesome. But I wouldnt really like it if the main story was split into three. I want to play 80+ missions with one character not in the mid 20's. It was okay with luis and johnny becasue those games were dlc's

Iv always wanted to play as a dangerous, yet hot girl for the first time ever. Why not there was a badass chick in GTA 3.

If we did get to use a female then we could use all those female stores that R* created(if you don't know em then check the ingame colthing section on the internet) she could have better stamina nd agility compared to most of the GTA male characters.
This would definatly be a bold new direction since we've never had 1.

After GTA IV Complete, I can hardly see how choosing between multiple protagonists would be a "bold new direction." It's been done. If anything, being able to operate crews and multiple characters at once (like in the Mass Effect series) would be a genuinely bold new direction for GTA. I'd prefer that to three short campaigns, personally.
