Hey guys,

this has been on my mind for quite some time now. I thought we could give Rockstar Games something back for all the hard, passionate work they do day for day to develop such great games like Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, Max Payne 3, Manhunt, Bully, Midnight Club, GTAV, etc. etc. etc.

I thought since GTAV is just around the corner (59 days left to launch) we could arrange a gift basket for the guys at Rockstar Games working so hard - like no other game developer out there.

I thought someone near the Rockstar HQ could send the gift basket to them once we decided what to include in the basket.

We have to show Rockstar Games that we love them, their work and simply everything they do - we have to show how thankful we are for what they are doing.

I'd please you all to give suggestions for what should be in the gift basket.

Just write a list here and if someone would be so kind to manage this all - we'd be very very thankful.

About what it's going to cost - I hope someone here can suggest how we manage to send the deliverer of the gift basket the money for all the stuff we want to include in the basket.

If all goes fine - I'd think the deliverer, who lives near the Rockstar HQ delivers the gift basket to the Rockstar HQ at the launch date of GTAV, September 17 - via mail or straight by ring at Rockstar HQ's bell.

There should also be a letter of appreciation be included in the final gift basket.

I'd be pleased to hear some suggestions for what we should write inside the letter of appreciation - also we could somehow manage to get everyones signatures in there, digital or so?

I hope this is getting real - I think Rockstar would thank us all so much for this gift basket and the letter of appreciation.

So let the managing begin. I'll add the contributors in this post as well as all the important information coming up.

Cheers,
Emmi

We give them money.

I am kidding. That's actually a good idea but I don't know if it would work. You can probably send a letter to their mouthoff with a thank you from people on the forum.

Yes.

I think if someone really wants to do something like this, just send an email to their mouthoff from the fans expressing how grateful we are for their time and effort on the game, that we wish them all the success with it etc.

While the intentions are good sending something physical to them, like a gift basket, is just going to seem a little odd and may not even be possible.

If you want to give them a gift, buy their games and spread the good cheer icon14.gif I'm pretty sure that's all the Housers want

In general it's a nice idea.

But: What did they gave us as a gift in the past? A 5 month delay, months of silence and phrases like "more info soon" before the silence.

The game will be awesome and they get lots of money from me. I will pay the game directly and will not send them a message that I will pay it "in a few weeks or so" - this should be enough of a gift.

We are buying their game. They will make millions from it so I think a gift basket will be nothing to them. They get employee parties, trips to exotic locations, all paid for by us, the people who buy their products. Gift basket would get laughed at by them and tossed in the bin.

I'll be sending them 150$ for my Collectors Edition. If we want them to know the appreciation we have, send them a letter saying how thankful we are for the game and end it with a ps that says "we will be sending an appreciative gift basket from all of us in a few months or so..."

I am buying a £40 game that is more than enough. Rockstar could afford to release the game at £10 and still make profit.

Umm I'm sorry but the delay wasn't made on purpose just to annoy people, they did it in order to make the game as good as it could be, so people like you should open their eyes and realize the delay was in fact a GIFT. Either way, people would complain, so I don't know why I even bother.

The delay is no prob for me. But I dont get why they didn't tell us earlier. Instead they announced a date for cover reveal. And instead of showing the Cover that Day, they announced a delay. This was bullsh*t at it's finest

I guess they didn't have the delay planned for such a long time. Either way, it doesn't matter, we're just two months away from the release, and I'm glad they took 5 extra months to polish everything and enhance our gaming experience. icon14.gif

Eh no thanks.

I'm already paying £40 for the game. That's all they care about. Our money. They are a business. It's sad how you think you need to send them gifts. Just send an email or letter saying thank you.

Instead of giving them lame physical stuff, why not give every R* developer a hug? blush.gif

Can we put a hidden microphone and camera and transmitter in it, and can we send it this week instead of waiting until 17 September? And keep sending one of these gift baskets a day?

OT: Nice thought. I do appreciate all the creativity and long hours and standing up for good ideas, that a huge creative and talented team like Rockstar North bring to their projects. They are truly unique.

I think its an Awesome idea.
But not sure what we can get them...

A Copy of GTA V but the disk is Gold instead of the actual image. or cover image to gold so they can put it in a frame and say it was from the GTAForum.
And a Letter which talks of our Thanks to them
with the names of the people on the forum.

Not sure what you can really give them, Theyre getting the cash so.

Once again, I can't believe people are planning love letters for a company that has shamelessly cut digital contents.

What gift did they give me in the past? They brought out the DLC for gta IV early on Xbox.
SCREW THEIR BASKET.

Still love em' though.

I really hope you guys are kidding. There are so many other developers that are just as good if not better. Also you want to thank Rockstar for taking content out of the disc and giving PC a port?

GTA Originated on PC but didn't become popular until GTA III got onto Ps2....

Plus im not a PC Gamer. Only with Total War etc and that's not often cos my PC doesn't run the latest stuff but my point being...

GTA went through PC games being given bad reviews and it wasn't until GTA III that R* were congratulated on the awesome game theyd put together. This is there 5th Game Generation and that's somin to celebrate. Just like if they reach 10-15-20-25-etc. Its all to celebrate. 5 Generations of GTA Gaming. And III is what put them on the Map. That's why theyre (possibly) showing PS3 love this game (even though they did Xbox with IV)

R* is a company which went through loads to get where they are. Like many others i agree but your on a GTA Forum talking about R* not being as deserving as other developer after they spend years creating unique game worlds for you to go into. What would you play if R* didn exist?

There would be a big gap in the market.
R* deserves some appreciation even if it is something small. So do many others but this righ here be about GTA V & R*. So don't justify they shouldn't by claiming that others should when this is a topic about whose the most deserving developer.

While I think this is actually a great idea, a symbol of apprecation on behalf of everyone here on GTAforums, a gift basket would be sort of silly, not trying to stomp on your idea man, I just agree with others here that a hefty email to their mouthoff on behalf of everyone on GTAforums with some individual quotes from users who post on this thread would be a more productive thing to do smile.gif

If this does happen, count me in! I'd love to add something to the email, even if it is just a signature or something.

biggrin.gif for a " £40 " I'm pretty sure they have less than 5 dollars so if you want it for £10 I can tell you we won't have a GTA 6 or any other R* game ... And i'm sorry but GTA serie is probably one of the only game who deserve to be at £40 ( wich is apparently 60$ ), it's not like these stupid FPS where you can finish the game in 2 hours and after that you play with kids only & have to pay 15 Dlcs ... I don't buy a lot of full price games but when it's a R* game I do it eyes closed, I bought all their GTA, RDR, LA noire and i never regret to spend my money on it !

Yeah, an e-mail or a letter expressing our excitment and gratefulness would suffice. Not being funny but we are already giving them something back by buying the game. Its always been one game i've never hesitated to buy because I know it'll always be a great game and I have never played another series that offers more for the money.

I pre-ordered it a couple days after the first trailer, haha! though as soon as I knew it even existed I put the money together to buy it, I don't do that for any other series nor game company.
