Seeing as how many of the complaints about post-San Andreas games is that they have had a lack of countryside (which is probably the main reason it is returning in V) it leads me to ask- do you think that countryside is now a necessity for the series?

No. It depends on the location. I'd like to see a GTA set in Chicago, Detroit, Boston etc one day and countryside isn't something I immediately think of with those locations.

It works well with LA/Socal, but I wouldn't want R* throwing in random countryside for the hell of it.

I would love GTA in Chicago but Watch Dogs already got that taken care of.

Just think about it for a second. Vice City ( aka Miami ) and the swaps down there.

Brings back old memories for when when I was younger and I would love to see the environment be in GTA.

^ Me too man. I would like VC, but if there wouldn't be countryside, they could add 2 more cities but make VC bigger of all two and to be main one. It would be awesome. Example, VC = 7 miles + two other cities that together 10 miles. So the full map would be around 17 miles. It wouldn't be bad. And also set it in 80's or late 70's.

Florida is peninsula already so it wouldn't be strange if its now surrounded with water from a north side. And its would be great to see everglades and key's in HD. What else is interesting in Florida countryside?

I think VC + Everglades + Orlando/Deep South is nailed on for the next GTA.

While countryside may not "suit" certain cities it is around every urban area in the world and personally I think it needs to be included to provide balance, but that's just me.

All northeast and midwest cities, except Chicago and NYC, are boring as f*ck in comparison to LA, Miami,SF, LV or London, and
not well enough known worldwide to have its own GTA version.

Btw I laughed so hard at that Detroit thing, you mean a contemporary version of Detroit? It seems youīre missing whatīs going on there lately...

About the OP question, GTA is about freedom, about discover and explore a rich and diverse parallel world, so a huge and diverse map itīs a must.Just think that the two best GTA games have countryside and a very large map, so yes, itīs a necessity.

No. If Rockstar did Vice City I would be more than happy with just the city. Adding the Florida Keys would be cool but its not needed.

'Best GTA games' is something subjective, it's not a fact, it's an opinion. I guess you're talking about San Andreas and Vice City, though the latter one doesn't have a countryside, but large beaches that are more or less just wasted area.

Anyway, countryside can add variety to the gameworld but it's not a necessity, in my opinion. It's heavily dependent on the area the game is based on. It wouldn't make much sense to have a countryside next to a city like Liberty City.

I'd like a 1970s Detroit actually.

Adding the everglades would be a nice addition, wouldn't be cool a chase in one of this things: http://blog.jonathan...airboat-045.jpg

@above, 1970s Detroit would be really nice and interesting smile.gif

Why is this so important to you people. Countryside is just the developer's choise. If they want to add counryside to the map they will. It depends if it's going to fit with the location of the game and the storyline. Like someone said before in locations such as New York(Liberty City) or Chicago the countryside will be boring. There is noting that much special like California where it has forest, deserts, rivers, hils, mountines,etc. The only thing that it lacks of is snow area.

Countryside would work well with VC because of the swamps and islands.

I think some countryside would be good even in LC, for off roading with dirt bikes and SUVs.

I would like a San Andreas type of game with three cities and a large countryside. The cities are ofcourse bigger than in SA. It would be set in Northeastern USA and include these three cities:

Philadelphia
Washington D.C.
Boston

I know that NYC would techically be located in between Philly and Boston, but ignore that. I really don`know about small towns, except a version of Camden, NJ. As in real life it should be located right acros a river from Philly. And it would fit because of its large crime rates and urban decay.

While I would love to see countryside in every game, I don't think it fits every location. LC was fine without countryside, as when you think of NYC, usually the image that pops up in your head is a concrete jungle(or at least in my head lol). It works for LS so it's there, but if V was in Chicago or someplace I don't see the countryside fitting quite as well.

This is exactly how I feel. And while I'm not opposed to having a location based on the Everglades, I don't understand the obsession with them. Think about it, it's nothing but a massive swamp and little to do there game-play wise. Although they could use it as an excuse to put more emphasis on water craft.

Gives the map more variety. Sometimes you get tired of rampaging around in the city and you just wanna relax and go dirt bike riding and jumping off cliffs in the countryside.

I think it's only necessary maybe right after a title that was only set in a city, just to provide a change of feeling. I personally wish they included snow covered places already though. The next GTA doesn't need to have a countryside because V has one I think.

Like others have said, the countryside adds balance.
Gta4 not having one was the nail in the coffin for me.
Also, saying it wouldn't fit in LC (nyc) is laughable.
I was born and raised in the bronx and a 20min. Drive north will take you over the tapanz brigde and into upstate Ny aka the countryside.

There was no reason for it to be in GTA V. It was barely used in the story, apart from the opening (and some side-tracked missions) in the desert and country plains as Trevor, and one or two as Franklin. Some people are just so picky with features. I'm already missing the GTA IV subway tunnel more than I missed the idea of countryside in GTA video-games.
