I know the game's only been out for a week, but a lot of you had to be thinking of it already. Now if it were up to you, where would you want to play GTA at? Now when you see the Real World city names like "Chicago" an "Detroit" that is merely referring to the city you would like the developers to model their setting after, like how Vice City is essentially Miami, Los Santos is LA and Liberty City is basically New York. Rockstar would maintain artistic integrity and ingenuity to make the city feel distinct from it's real-life counterpart all the while emulating some of the prominent features, like landmarks, local culture, weather/conditions, overall location relative to other cities etc. 

See me, I would choose Chicago. I live in Chicago, and if you haven't lived here, then it's hard to comprehend and appreciate just how huge it actually is, and there is plenty to do here even if it isn't nearly as big as NYC (since people love to make that comparison). But I'd say, if scaled fully, there'd be as much space and stuff to do as they've had in the past couple of GTA titles, certainly from a gameplay stand point.

Think about it! Chinatown anyone, or the various ghettos/barrios? That not your thing, what about going Downtown? You could explore the city, scale or land on the Sears Tower (or it's R* rip off I should say), have car chases through Lower Whacker Drive, shop at the Loop and Navy Pier, play volleyball at Oakstreet Beach, go fishing or boating on Lake Michigan. O'Hare Interational Airport should be home to a lot fun toys to steal and joy ride in. It's also home to the Hawks, Cubs, Sox and the Bears, and the in-game versions could open up doors for sporting events at the stadium or on tv, gambling on the winning team, or even playing fantasy sports! All possible on these next generation consoles I'm sure. 

For real though My main reasons are because, firstly, Chicago is unique in a myriad of aspects, instantly recognizable by it's history, culture, skyline, and architecture. It's absolutely massive in its own right and besides, cities like LA and NYC have been done death in a seemingly endless loop of pop culture, from video games to movies, if you haven't noticed by now. 

It has the character, it has the diversity, it has the scale, it has the scope, it has the beauty to be the play ground of the next GTA title to be released some years from now. Do you agree? Have a different city in mind? What do you think? Tell me in the comments section.

No, Chicago is a big NO-NO! Watch Dogs is set in Chicago, so Ubisoft would be able to sue R* for copying.

 

If I had my say, I would want modern day version of Red Dead Redemption map.

Well, I didn't know that, but tell me how Ubisoft could sue R* for using a globally recognized city as it's setting? What sort of lawsuits have been brought up regarding production companies and their works of fictional video games and movies using LA or New York City as the setting? Do you perhaps have a uh... I don't know, BETTER reason? Something based on gameplay aspects of a Chicago-set GTA?

Uhh...Could be nice to see a UK setting for a change, not seen a decent UK based free-roam game since The Getaway...

London or Manchester?

 

Or take it to Atlanta, Houston or Memphis

Living in England, I really wouldn't want it set here. Maybe Las Vegas or Miami. Or I think abit like Red Dead with a International Border.

Can't be Carcer City, that place is suppose to be f***ed up.

 

Has to be Vice City and then London but would they call it London?

I can't see Rockstar trying to map a real London map but who knows.

I wouldn't mind GTA being set outside of North America, I think that would be awesome, but it's not like America is boring. I mean I'd like to go to London as much as the next guy, because one of my favorite movies are Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels and SNATCH and those movies remind me of a GTA game. Memphis, Atlanta and Houston, I could see that, but I thought one of the complaints of sand-box/open world games is not giving the players enough room/space to do their free-roaming? Chicago proper is definitely big enough to accommodate those demands, and exceed them, as well as some other cities mentioned below that I'll get to.

 

I would like to see England. That or they can go back the Miami and do another Vice City set in the 80s. 

Ok, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but LV? Again? Or I'm sorry, "VIce CIty"? C'mon man, another location that's so repetitive by now, so mainstream and overrated. Can't we do better? When you start shouting "Miami" or "Vice City", then I start to climb in the boat with the people saying it should take place somewhere besides North America, like London or something.

 

Living in England, I really wouldn't want it set here. Maybe Las Vegas or Miami. Or I think abit like Red Dead with a International Border.

What's wrong with London as the setting? I don't live there so I couldn't possibly know, care to educate us?

 

Philadelphia too

That would pretty cool, I was thinking Boston or San Francisco but I'm beginning to think those place don't have enough "going on", not enough variety, too "oldy" no?

Snatch is one of the best films of all times lmao "You silly, fat b*stard" so many quotable lines from that movie...

Hmm San Francisco seems a lil dull to me, but that's just me...Boston could be cool...

But I could definitely see London working!

 

Uhh...What about a certain part of Australia? Maybe Melnbourne (spelling) Or Sydney? Bit of a wild card I know...

They should make a three city game again, like San Andreas.

Also the wilderness areas should be woods...no more desert please.

I'd like to see Seattle, Portland (Oregon), and Denver.

love Vice City, would like to see Philly because i'm from there or Baltimore would be fun. they could easily do the entire NE region from Baltimore, DC, AC, Philly, NYC, Boston next. 

 

Dallas/Ft Worth is actually incredibly huge and populated, but it's boring suburbia mostly

Oh that movie is golden. You know what is a bit unrelated but definitely doesn't get the credit it deserves? The Big Lebowski, I saw for the first time a few weeks ago, and it's my new favorite movie overall. I can't get enough of the hilarity. And actually, while playing GTA V it reminded me of The Big Lebowski in some ways, maybe if you seen it you could help me describe why, I dunno though.

As for San Fran, I was just brainstorming, seems like a great city, only been there once on a 2 week trip, but that was 2007. I'm sure it would be a cool place for a sims game but not so much for GTA, My issue with Australian cities is I don't know enough about them to comment on whether or not and why they would be good locations for a GTA game.

I'd vote for Baltimore, coz I'm a huge fan of the wire! If you wanna take it outside of USA though I vote Johannesburg.

Johannesburg is easily the go to place outside of the US for GTA.

 

EDIT: Or a Brazilian city.

imo GTA wouldnt fit well outside the US, there just aren't enough gun crazy cities. Brazil could work i guess, or Mexico City

 

edit- add Johannesburg to possible areas

In my opinion, with the power of next generation, they could do like a gta world, where massive cities have their each own island. Like for example one island could be England, another could be like a little bit of europe, and then again North America. Would make the game really diverse.

Gimme a break. If that was the case Rockstar would've been sued 100x times by now for using Miami and New York as their inspirations.

More than enough gun crazy places in the world that make any place in the US look like a picnic in the park.

I wouldn't be too bummed if they did modern Vice City.
I think a London game is looong overdue, though.

I could see them going outside the wood work for the next one and possibly using Canada, what with all the V references.
