Like I posted in a less desirable topic: This is my GTA future dream.
A new GTA comes out every year or at least every 18 months. I'm 29 years old and if Rockstar releases a new game every 6 years, than that means we can play another 5 titles or so in our LIVES. For this fantastic game it is simply to less. They need 1 billion costs, than they can produce 4 times faster as GTA 5. So please count the profit from GTA 5, start doing math and seek for investors or just put the money on the table when GTA 5 makes 10 times more than it cossed. Thank you Rockstar.
My wishlist of GTA:
GTA 6: Vice City (released 2015)
- Pro's: No comments. Vice City was fantastic in '80's style and will be fantastic in 80's style.
- Expension: Everglades: I see missions were airplanes from columbia dropping packs of cocaine in the Everglades. I see missions were alligators are in it. Miami harbour: Boats filled with cocaine coming in. Florida Keys: Lot of things to do and do crimes. Second city in the game: Tampa Bay. Third city in this game: Orlando with all amusement parks. Nasa platform: Missions of sabotaging rockets or something like that.
No's: no no's for Vice City.
Wait a minute, you want them to essentially re-release GTA Vice City? Why should it take place in the 80's on top of already being set in a familiar, I mean same exact location as before? That seems like a waste of time and resources. Lol "No no's for Vice CIty"? IT's just THAT GREAT huh?
GTA 7: Amsterdamned (released 2016)
- Pro's: Marihuana - streets filled with hookers - diamond trading - over 150 nationalities - rich parts, poor parts, historical/cultural city - football hooliganism - lots of canals - big airport (Schiphol) - to the east: A big lake named IJsselmeer - tot the west: a smaller city named Haarlem which borders the North Sea - I'm from Holland.
- Expension: City of Rotterdam as the second city in the game. With the biggest harbour in the world this would be Europe's distribution center for cocain, heroin, XTC. Also a lot of hooligans wit 3 stadiums. Big Sea missions. A small airport. A big swamp is also near Rotterdam.
- No's: It's in Holland, not in America.
I can't say anything critical about this, fantastic idea and well fleshed out.
GTA 8: Chicago 1931 (released 2017)
Pro's: History of mobsters and crime related to alcohol - Lake Michigan - Historic and big city - Bad poilitics - 2 airports - This GTA game takes us way back for once to a time an automobile was not common.
Expension: City of Detroit with their automobile industry just beginning in that time - A healthy variety of crimes all over the place - Another lake - Bordering Canada. Third and small City of Milwaukee. The most important thing in this game is that you can travel by land, plane or on water to all three of the cities. (lakes are connected) Especially the water ways are nice. I see a lot of cool missions coming and a great landscape while going on boat with no open sea.
No's: I can't think of any.
I was thinking of a modern Chicago but it's nice to know someone other than me wants a GTA based on Chicago. Even if we differ on interpretation, I totally support your idea here because you nailed some of the key aspects that make Chicago distinct from anywhere else and worthy of a GTA-inspired city.
GTA 9: Las Vegas (released 2018)
Pro's: Casino's - Hookers - Maffia - Gangs - Big city in a dessert - Nice lake not to far away - Area 51 (69) not very far away - Celebrities performing.
Expension: Hoover Dam and Dessert missions.
No's: No no's for this fantastic city, this game speaks for itself.
I enjoyed Fallout New Vegas and I'm positive Rockstar by 2018 will be able to do more with it than they did, I like it.
GTA 10: Boston (released 2019)
Pro's: Irish maffia missions and lots of them - Bordering the ocean - Big airport.
Expension: Portland (Maine) as a small city in the game. It's surrounded completely with water and can be reached by plane, boat and vehicles. Further to the north there are hills with lots of wildlife missions. To the nortwest there are a few snowey mountains wit some decent missions for it. Than Cape Cod just south of Boston with several missions and ability to travel to by boat or vehicle. The nicest thing about this game is that it would be on one shoreline and very accesible by boats.
No's: No no's
I don't know much about Boston so I can't comment on it, other than the fact that I think Rockstar could do better. I would put many other places ahead of Boston.
2020: Next gen Playstation 5 released ! (no GTA release)
GTA 11: The Northwest. Seattle - Vancouver (Canada) - Salt Lake City - Portland Oregon (released 2021)
Pro's: The biggest game ever by far! In this game the four city's mentioned above are in one game. With beautiful landcapes - big mountains - desserts - forests - airports in 4 city's - sea - lakes etc. This game has everything. This is the game were Rockstar sells 500 million copies from. Even for a hardcore GTA-gamer it takes about 2 years to complete only the storyline if he plays it every day for at least two hours, 7 days a week. In this part of USA, Rockstar can prove what they are capable of with graphics (due to fantastic scenery) and how big a game can be and will be in the future.
No's: Hell no!
Well you are definitely an educated and intelligent individual, to be a foreigner and yet know so much about American cities and the surrounding environments/lanscape. I would totally buy this game.
GTA 12: Liberty City (released 2023)
Pro's: Back to the roots - Next gen shows us Liberty City in all it's beauty - everything Liberty City has offered us in the past and presence.
Expension: A fifth Island comes within the city limits - East of the airport is Long Island bordering the sea, not the airport - Northwest of the City begins upstate New York, again witth beautiful scenery's, mountains and a few small city's like Albany. West of the city, a landscape with a few hills and some exiting missions - 4 airports (2 NYC, 1 Newark, 1 Upstate NY) - Ability of going by boat over the Hudson upstream upstate New York.
No's: Liberty City......again.
So no qualms about playing in Vice City again but you seem down about playing in Liberty City, on a future generation console that hasn't even been conceived of yet? Hm, not sure what to make of that. Only thing I would add is that whether it's Xbox One or the next, they should try and make Liberty City as big as actual New York City. It doesn't have to look the same, but New York City Proper s over 450 sq miles, that's massive, nearly twice that of Chicago, and much much bigger than any other city. And that was my main gripe with GTA IV, in that it was based on the Flag Ship of American Cities, America's largest and most populous city, and it it didn't even feel half as big as Chicago. The place felt empty and dead, it was rather boring, and frankly, Los Santos in GTA V hasn't been much of an improvement in that regard.
GTA 13: San Fransisco (released 2024)
Pro's: Maffia crime's - Gays - Hippie culture - Sillicon Valley - Very big city with Oakland, San Jose and the Silicon Valley area within the game - The City surround the big San Fransisco Bay - San Fransisco lies on the seashore as well - Beautiful landscape again, with San Fransisco Bay in the center, surrounded by concrete of the cities and behind that spectacular mountains with a high variety.
No's: No no's
Hey, if LA is an acceptable city to base a Rockstar game on, I think San Francisco gets a pass as well. If they made the game like you suggested with the Northwest with Seattle, Vancouver and Portland, then there is no shortage of activities to do and places to see. I'm down, I like it.
GTA 14: Philadelphia (released 2025)
Pro's: Lots of crimes in Philadelphia and the bordering town of Camden NJ - Maffia - A river devides NJ from Philly - Nuclear power plant accros river, under Camden - Aggresssive Amish people to the southwest in a farming landscape - East of Philly/Camden are the woods and behind that the seashore - On the seashore are only Snooky/Pauly D look-a-likes.
Expension: Wilmington Delaware as a small city south of Philly and with lots of crime and creditcard companies doing crimes and stuff.
No's: no no's.
Could be interesting, I never been to Philadelphia but I love the TV show "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", not they necessarily show a broad spectrum of what it's like, I would still like to play GTA in it. Although I see myself putting in GTA 8. 9, 11 or 13 in this hypothetical timeline.
I can't comment on your other stuff, that's your ambitious fantasies, I don't have anything to say regarding it, I don't want to burst your bubble and I don't really have anything to add to it.
