Intro
user posted image
Beautiful isnít it? If donít already know Hawaii is a tropical American State located in the Pacific Ocean. In Hawaii the temperature rarely falls below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.5 celcius). Iím about to show you why Hawaii is arguably the best location for GTA VI, even better than Vice City(Miami).

Geography/Climate
Climate-wise, Hawaii has pretty much everything. There are beautiful beaches, tropical rain forests, mountains, volcanoes, a desert and even snow(on top of mountains). In comparison, Miami (the city that Vice City is based on) is relatively flat. If you love Vice City Iím certain you will love Hawaii too. I mean, just look at these clipsÖ Theyíre breathtaking.



Now Imagine GTA Hawaii on the next generations of consoles. For those of you who played Just Cause 2, GTA VI Hawaii will be just like Panau except with better vehicles, more pedestrians, and far more detailed cities. Although, GTA VI Hawaii will certainly be smaller than Just Cause 2ís huge 400 square miles(1,036 square kilometers) map.

Culture
Hawaii is a popular vacation site for Americans, Japanese, Canadians and many other countries as well. Even though Hawaii is considered a paradise by tourists, many who live there considered it to be the opposite. Hawaiiís main issue is racial tension between the American tourist industry and the native populations. The native Hawaiians believe that the US should have never annexed the islands and made them the 50th US state. Hawaii also experiences issues with poverty and the smuggling of drugs. These are the ingredients to an interesting story. GTA VI, if it is set in Hawaii will be an exploration of the ugly racial tensions and economic problems that exist within this so-called paradise.

Activities
Now, Iím not Rockstar so I have no idea what kind of activities they would include in a GTA Hawaii game but here are some possibilities: hiking, canoeing, base jumping off of cliffs, parasailing (in multiplayer), surfing, scuba-diving (already in GTA V). Since Hawaii is a tourist destination it definitely has its fair share of casinos. You will also be able to do the traditional GTA activities: driving flying and killing... except with beautiful scenery in the background.

If the map is big with variety then I say f*ck YES!

By variety I mean cities, nature like jungles and deserts maybe? And mountains. Stuff ya know.. smile.gif

Oh well would you look at that. The 2nd part you edited in your post just confirmed my wants. smile.gif

Another edit? Why don't you place everything in that you want instead of putting it in after? confused.gif

Also, I can't see the image. tounge.gif

And what there to do? To drink cocktail and to sunbathe.
I want San Fierro (San Francisco). The best city on the west coast.

I loved test drive unlimited 2 which was 50% based in Hawai and 50% based in Spain. In Hawia it has amazing roads so perfect for car enthusiast but it's a huge Island I couldn't believe how long it took to drive around the whole island. Also there is forests, large towns and mountins so perfect for shoot out. The scenary on the beaches is sunning so boating would be great, even flying would be fun, there is a few big airports on the island so OVERALL 10/10 GREAT.

I think it's time to go back to London, why's it always set in the US? Or imagine it in a European city like Madrid or Paris, or possibly in the area of Sicily and have it mafia based? That'd be amazing.
Moscow would be cool too.

There was a thread about this not much ago, and ended in a war about what was country was the best...

Hawaii looks like Far Cry map. I say Las Venturas for the next GTA. Big city with tons of casinos and lights and desert.

I'd rather prefer Miami / South Florida or Europe for the next GTA than Hawaii.

I would enjoy GTA in any location on the world.

But GTA without a big city isn't really GTA.

Sure it would be an OK location. But It's not better than LA, Miami, New York Or Vegas for a GTA game.

That sure does look like a good setting for a future GTA. I don't know much about Hawaii, but tell me; are there any huge cities in Hawaii?

I'd like to see the whole of Liberty State (LC and surrounding countryside) and Carcer City for a furture GTA, but not for VI as it would be too soon to go back to LC.

You have to admit though, having it in the US is getting kind of boring now. Sure they're changing the cities/areas but why can't they go for a different city, and maybe try somewhere different like Russia, Germany, Spain, Italy? It'd be like playing a Bourne movie!

Not according to Dan Houser...

So that means that's the way it'll stay.

I don't see how "Grand Theft Auto" would fit into this island.

But perhaps as another R* game? A sort of Far Cry type game by RockStar would defiantly we welcome in my books.

Hawaii isn't an uninhabited wilderness, it has a large city and several smaller ones. The populations of these cities are deceiving because they mostly consist of hotels which are not counted towards population. Honolulu is bigger than you would expect for a city of 375,000.

I think VI certainly won't return to Los Angeles or New York as those have been done already.In fact they've been done so well that having another game in them would seem like a copy and paste of IV or V. But that's just my opinion.

Lastly, I would like to remind Vice City fans that its landscape is flat and boring, unlike San Andreas or Hawaii. Sure it has some taller buildings but 6 peaks of Hawaii reach around a mile(5280ft/1609m) or higher

GTA Las Venturas with every casino on the Strip being accessible.

Oh, and the time setting is 1972.

OT: Hawaii sounds good, but personally I'd see them do another period piece on an iconic place (like they did 1980s Miami). 1950s anyone? biggrin.gif

Since nobody else pulled you up on it. Hawaii is in the USA.... monocle.gif

I know most americans on this board would be against it but I agree one needs to be done in europe. Lets not forget its a parody of real life so it doesnt need to be a map identical to europe but all the fun rockstar could have with british, french, german, italian stereo types.. etc etc

Shooting american tourists on the streets of London for being so f*cking LOUD..
Beating the german to death with a baseball bat because he stuck his towel on your sun lounger..
Knocking dutch camper vans off of the road..
Pub fights..
Missile launching the queens castle..
Double decker buses ..

The tropical/warm climate setting is done to death in games.
Also, very unlikely for R* to make a new GTA set outside the US.

A new Vice City just doesn't work without the 80's setting.
And redoing it just with new graphics would be pointless.

I'm betting a new state including Carcer City (mentioned some times in GTA) and Capital City (Washington), and maybe more cities.

I doubt it will be in VI which will most likely be set in VICE CITY.

Maybe once they are finished with the whole Liberty City, Vice City, San Andreas areas then they'll pick a new place.

Hawaii would be good because it's an island and all the GTA maps seem to be islands. Also, technology is improving a lot and they will keep making bigger and bigger maps. Hawaii isn't that big so they could easily replicate it.

So yeah, no Hawaii for VI, maybe in the future after VI.

I really don't understand why someone would want Miami/Vice City over Hawaii. Hawaii has a big city and beaches just like Maimi. But what separates Hawaii from Miami are the mountains and rain forests. Don't get me wrong, Miami is a beautiful city, but it's a little too flat for my tastes. I guess people are scared to try something new?
