Hey OP, you f*cking retard. GTA settings aren't chosen based on the amount of criminality that goes on in them, they're chosen based on the level of cultural significance they have. I guess you wouldn't know anything about cultural significance, seeing as how you probably live in some sh*tty town in a sh*tty, ghetto neighborhood where you pretend to act like you're in gangs. Florida has had 0 cultural significance since the 80's. It's an easy to recognize state, but part of that is due to its past, and due to Disney World/Universal Studios. And another thing: f*ck gangs. I don't want to play as a character in some sh*tty gang. San Andreas' story was trash for this reason.
Hmmm....He you actually read both mines and Official General's posts(obviously you didnt) throughout this thread, you would see that both Official General and me brought up really good cases on my Miami is such an iconic city and why it is the logical choice for a location for the next GTA game, besides the crime. We only brought up crime, because some people were stating Miami crime was only at its peak during the 80s or cowboy era or Scarface era, whatever you want to call, but that is not the case as we shown. Again...Crime in Miami was only brought up for that. Now back to Miami being an iconic city like NYC and LA. You say Miami/Florida is not an easy recognizable state? Have you been to Florida or Miami? I admit that I have not been to Miami, but I sure as hell been to southern Florida loads of time and Southern Florida gets LOADS and LOADS of tourism all the time from people from different countries, same for Miami but MORE. Think I'm lying?
^^^Miami makes #3 as in the city foreigners visits.
Miami makes #4 in this list, only behind Orlando(Gee also in Florida).
Miami, most visited US city by oversea travelers after NYC
Oh it even gets better...
Miami...The Thirteenth Most Visited City in the World
I can list millions upon millions of things about why Miami is iconic and why it is the logical location for the next GTA game, but honestly...I don't feel like wasting my time, because people like you seen to ignore certain things posted. Instead of actually trying refute some of the things posted by Official General, instead you name call like an immature child. Now I want you to PROVE with sources and links like what I just did that Florida/Miami had 0 cultural significance since the 80s. Come on this should be fun.
As for gangs, gangs have been in GTA since the very first GTA game. They are one of the things that makes GTA. So if you don't like them, then don't play another GTA game again, stick to playing Call of Duty. And IICR me and Official General mentioned Colombian cartels, Mafias and other criminal organizations in Miami.
Anyways reported for obvious trolling.
