I don't see the resemblance. Actually, a lot of Staunton is based on New York, more specifically Manhattan (places like Times Square, Central Park, etc are seen in the game).

Indeed. In fact, this has been stated by R* many times. I do, however, see a little resemblance there, but not enough to matter. It's impressive the places I've come up with to call San Andreas, believe it or not.

I believee Staunton is based on Statten Island, because much of the architecture fits that area of New York.

Wasn't there a thread like this a few months ago?

Indeed, even the name fits but I think they planned to make it more like Queens because of the airport that was planned for Staunton. Funny thing is, in LCS it's quite noticeably different from in GTA 3 so it might be one of the other boroughs... maybe in both games it's a mix of some different boroughs, but Liberty is definitely based off NY.

It always seemed to me that all parts of Liberty City were based off all parts of New York....the whole place is just loosly based on it.

 

As for Toronto looking like it....sure why not, there gets to be a point that every sckyscraper city looks the same anyway. At least from a distance.

True but I could just never figure out how Shoreside Vale got moved to where Portland was in GTA IV (cuz of the airport) :lol:

Except that it is so obviously based off Manhattan. There are many landmarks from Manhattan in the game, there's Central Park, Times Square, the Flatiron and Chrysler buildings, the apartments where Asuka lives, and a bunch of other ones.
