Damn! I cant wait to get my '64 implala pimp it in green. Get some hydraulics on that sh** and cruise into ballas territory with my nine.


A good thang bout the hood is that it aint all jungle, we got the watts vibe with the houses streets etc.


so far i think we seen:

Watts
Baldwin Village/ Crenshaw
Maybe Compton

I haven't really seen any light shed on this area!

And I swear to god if the ghettos of Los santos aren't vibrant and I mean like:

-hearing gunshots in the distance
-dice games, hoes
-drug dealing and people yelling "5-0" and bolting when they see cops
- streetfights
-graffiti/ trash
-dogs barking
-police harassment on locals/ police helicopters
-AI crimes like witnessing a drive by or seeing a homicide scene
- and Ofcourse various gangs, perhaps broken down into decentralized sets not whole areas
-dodgy alleyways and shoes hanging off wires

If none of this is in the game or at least some of it I will be one pissed off person as they haven't done los santos properly. I don't care if its not part of the story. I just like to have that dangerous feel like little Haiti in vice city or st marks in gta III. IV was crap with the crime and vibrancy of ghetto areas

i 100% agree with this topic, i still stay in the hood but we no longer scream 5-0 no more we scream 12

You can see how close the two screenshots were to eachother, it just makes the hood area/map look smaller n they tryin to hide it.
theyve done this a bunch of times, espicially wit the liquor store across tha road from Franklins place..

I dont mean to sound like i'm complaining or anything, id just thought id point it out since it may be a little deceivin or whatever.

Am i the only one or what?

Yeah, notice the minimap? It's right next door to either Franklin or Lamar's house. Since it's a location of interest of course they're gonna try and shoot some screenshots in that zone.

The boundaries of that families set is basically those apartments that wrap around/jungles, that row of houses across from the church and liquor store. So the other hoods are probably around the same size.. They gotta make it like this to give a sense of danger around every corner.

@ BoyzNGroveStreet

Well the zoom-in feature on the map in gameplay video pretty much confirms that the map is much bigger than we thought it would be. Yes, the gameplay images can look deceiving indeed, but Los Santos clearly is big, so the size of the ghettos should be fine.

How mad will you be if there's no one yelling "five-OH!" which sounds about 1998ish. I never hear anyone say that, not in the past many years.

(and I listen a lot!)

People still use it. Trust me.

Because first, it looks like a graffiti, and the signs, especially the one on the left which only 75% of it can be seen, looks more like a chinese/japanese sign :

Yeah im just hoping man! but yeah its good to see something familiar i hope in the watts area they have couple a projects repping Nickerson gardens, Jordan down, and imperial courts and throw the families in the gardens ballas in the others then have some set trippin between the ballas, just like real life, and the families can be like LS second biggest set, maybe some thing repping the rollin 20's maybe? as biggest

"The Hood", white guys make me laugh.

I'm from Chicago but the poorer neighborhoods are right by downtown.

Heck in DC the poor areas are right next to the country's capitol.
