I just got my new TV guide, and there's an interview with Dan Houser in it. Most of the stuff he he has to say is nothing new, but this is.

QUOTE
What is the main theme of GTA V?
"Lots of stuff! The theme is: modern California. And what happens between 2010 and 2013. It doesn't have to be a direct transfer, but you have to capture today's energy. Credit crisis, rise of China, decay of movies, paranoia, bad financing, conspiracy theories, gold; just about everything."

Kredietcrisis, opkomst van China, verval van films, paranoia, slechte financiering, complottheorieŽn , goud, zo'n beetje alles."

Hmm, the rise of China... Wasn't there one or two positions for a Chinese mob guy and his translator in that leaked casting call (Rush?)?

EDIT: Ah, I found it!

"Tae Wong:
39 - somewhat incompetent Chinese mobster, loves doing ecstasy, going to raves.

Taes Translator:
45 - VERY STRAIGHT LACED Chinese translator, terrified of his boss's dad. Male, awkward. Needs to speak Chinese."

I'm waiting for conspiracy theories connected with the rise of China and Hollywood/Vinewood.

Also thought it was about the theme song. "Decay of movies" sounds pretty interesting.

When he said conspiracy theories......... I started to think about this guy from San Andreas who had a black coat, black hat, and a red scarf, and he would say weird things such as ''They're watching us!''.

My interpretation:

QUOTE
what happens between 2010 and 2013

It seems that the story will span a couple of years. This still makes "a re-imagined, present day southern California" a true statement. It could also just mean that there isn't an exact date during which it takes place.

QUOTE
Credit crisis, bad financing

We knew this, and it's kind of a given anyway.

QUOTE
rise of China

Interesting. It's just a matter of time before the USA isn't number one anymore. Could be that the casting call characters are indeed going to be in the game. Not sure how they are going to tackle this.

QUOTE
decay of movies

We know Vinewood is in, and Hollywood is in a really bad state these days. Maybe some characters who used to be working in the movie industry and have fallen on hard times?

QUOTE
paranoia, conspiracy theories

I grouped these together because they are closely related. The ranks of the chemtrails sniffing, illuminati fearing, tinfoil hat wearing crazy people are growing fast. I assume the "the Mayans were right about 2012 we're all going to die - wait nothing happened" crowd is going to be featured. I'm also assuming that multiple characters like San Andreas's The Truth will be featured. This would pretty much guarantee some very fun missions.

QUOTE
gold

I'm think this is about a heist of some kind. I tried googling gold storage facilities in California but found nothing. Anyone have any ideas about this?

they keep most of the gold in the federal reserve of new york, and the closest federal reserve would be in san francisco

I'm sure he is talking about the recent spike in price of gold.

In my opinion, the only way that this would be relevant enough to mention however, is if the three protagonists will somehow acquire a large amount of the stuff...

Uh no of course not. Many of you seem to think this. I really think he's just talking about what happened in pop-culture these last years, since IV (well EFLC) came out, and how to use this in the story.

I second this. Most of the Themes listed are real life themes that will be themes of the games modern setting. but seeing as they have ben working on that specific content since 2010 and onwards it means that we will see most of the themes in that stretch of time mentioned. Conspiracy theories sticks out a bit, but then again it looks like inclusion of the Epsilon Program could be tied to that in some degree. Gold to me is something that stuck out because we know Michael, Trevor and Franklin are serial robbers and money and jewelry store items are one thing, but with gold on the rise something tells me that maybe the trio might steal from some very powerful people who are not going to take kindly to being robbed from.
