Do you think gta v will have driver reference like it did in gta 3 because I recently played my ps2 driv3r was one of them and I noticed this guy in the back of some houses called Timmy vecitnelli he looked like tommy and he had floaties probably because tommy couldn't swim

Nah, no shots fired at Driver. Maybe the SR series, but Driver went its own path. If anything, GTA V should have hilarious parodies of COD.

Rockstar (and the rest of the world) stopped giving a sh*t about the Driver series once Driv3r was released.

It's Timmy Vermicelli, and it was a fail of a diss because that same year San Andreas came out and CJ could swim & dive, lol.

They already took several shots at Driver.

GTA III-There was a mission called Two-Faced Tanner where a cop moved about like Tanner
GTA:VC-There is a Tanner who is in one of the assassaination missions
GTA:SA During one mission someone is heard saying "Tanner you suck! damn you, Refractions, how could you mess up so bad?"

Wow. Driver references. Is this 2008 again. Those games went so downhill after Driver 2, I facepalmed on a weekly basis.

I expect references to other games such as watch dogs and possibly saints row 4, and of course whatever R* wanna take the piss out of next tounge.gif

Driver San Fransisco was pretty good

Any way, why did you make a thread about this?!

It's said by one of the guards in Madd Dogg's mansion who is sitting on the couch in the bar area playing a video game. cool.gif

I doubt they will have a driver reference, I would expect to see some play on the Call Of "doody" franchise though, which I would love because it would more than likely piss off the COD fanboys

Well yeah, Driver isn't a main franchise anymore, so I don't see it featuring personally.

GameInformer stated that the Republican Space Rangers will be returning though (which has Halo references)

QUOTE (GameInformer)
Michael walks past two celebrity lookalikes. The first is a stand-in for one of the Republican Space Rangers (which returns with new episodes in GTA V). The other is dressed as Impotent Rage, a new liberal superhero with a hit TV show. When Michael pulls out his smartphone to take a picture of the Space Ranger, the actor strikes a pose for him.

I think it would be funny if it took a poke at Driver: San Francisco's "Shift" mechanism since that's basically how switching protagonists will work with the Google Earth like zoom in/out.

Maybe whoever we switch to says something like "I swear I was just driving a blah, blah, blah". Perhaps something more obvious. Nothing's coming to mind atm. blush.gif

I didn't really think about that, but that sounds very much like something R* would do!
Good suggestion. icon14.gif

I've got that original print of Grand Theft Auto tounge2.gif

But OT:

Yup, Reflections used it for the Driver beta (stole it from GTA tounge.gif )
But the 'Yellow Buick' didn't actually make the final game.



They did heavily feature a very similar looking 1970's Dodge Challenger in the latest Driver, funnily enough, though:
