Everyone here seems to be obsessed with game changing DLC ideas like Undead Nightmare, so I thought I might throw my idea into the mix.

Following on from ending C, some event (possibly one of Trevor's pointless killing sprees) happens where the govenerment no longer feels that the LSPD can handle to out of control crime in the city. So instead, newly elected Democrat Sue Murray contracts Merryweather to replace the LSPD and enforce Marshall Law in Los Santos (which was alluded to within the game).

Once this happens all three protagonists have a reason to put an end to this; Michael's movie production is shut down, all of Franklins old friends and thrown in jail for petty crimes and Trevor just simply hates Merryweather. And by game's end, the three band together to kill Merryweather CEO, Don Percival.

Basically the gameplay would be semi-similar to the vanilla game. However you would have a lot more military grade weaponry, the return of six star wanted levels, soldiers in APCs and jeeps patroling the city and whatever else Rockstar could come up with.

So I really want to ask what people think of this idea...

I don't care if you disagree, but if you do maybe (just maybe) you could actually put the effort into explaining why not.

You mean like the riots from the end of San Andreas where the police and civilians are going at each other?

No because we don't need to have ' fun' in a martial law game world. Bad things get too glorified in video games. Though I'm not bashin your idea, Martial Law is very serious and very scary.

Even chop the dog can kill the ceo without any suspicious activity for military to proceed.
You just need an IFruit to upgrade him!!..

And having an ex bank robber help break into a lab with two FIB agents to steal a chemicle superweapon is?

@GTA_REEFER, thank you for being able to disagree and not be an utter d*ck about it.

Yes. Bcoz it's ... well fun, I guess. Plus you would kill him easily even before 5 stars pop up.
The target should have been more interesting and worth my time, anyways.

You think I'm asking for one mission where you simply kill one guy? No, I'm asking for 20-30 missions mainly involving helping stop Merryweather ruining lives and disrupting their operations.
Plus, (in the event that you paid no attention to the story in V) Merryweather owns millions of dollars worth of military grade gear from high powered machine guns, to tanks and even buzzards. So you think it would simply be an easy task to whipe him out?

Should I remind you about all the events about that particular heist mission as well?
You are trying to assassinate the CEO for what reason?
Just to have some 20-30 missions of fun and then shoot him dead.
Don't judge me better you understand why it's not easy to digest. That's all.

Yes, that was high parody, because it really happened in Los Angeles in 1991.  It made a good backdrop for the final phase of the GTA SA story.  I loved the way Rockstar had civilians carrying TVs down the street, which they had looted from the big box stores.  That really happened, too.  In Los Angeles, the news reporters were interviewing people on live TV as they carried TVs out of Costco.  There were no flat panels then, so it was harder than it would be today.  :)

 

It's called "Martial law"...  :yawn:

Wait, what?  I thought Marshall Law was the name of the antagonist in the next Red Dead :colgate:

 

To the OP's point, I was thinking along the lines of Merryweather being the next big unstoppable antag, and if Rockstar chooses to use our intrepid trio of protags again, they could be recruited by Dave, the good FIB guy, to do a complex series of missions to strike at the heart of Merryweather and bring them down.

I think it will be more realistically if Merryweather would not replace the LPSD

But that the plot begins that when Michael or Franklin entangled with one of most dangerous people and and they stole his money too from story, so they are not aware that he has power, he has connections with Merryweather and etc.

 

He can make that Michael Franklin Being seen as dangerous people in a simple easy to make people believe what News tells, it just to screw up their lives and even Trevor screwed with them

 

then Merryweather can intervene in situations  because this man want his money back and them dead, so he hires Merryweather and government people to find them.

And character will have to change clothes and move in a more street smart, learn how to survive the people who hunt them, they need rental good apartments and an unsuspected places in cheap and etc.

It can be interesting.

The way I see my idea:
- Merryweather replaces LSPD
- Merryweather abuses their power and starts to destroy everything the protagonists know and love
- You disrupt their operations and then kill their CEO so Merryweather is left in such a state of decay that it falls apart

This reads good on paper but you will need a lot of interesting stuff for making the idea relevant to any one for trying it.
It reminds me about Far Cry 1 story minus horrible enemies plus challenging hurdles and interesting suspenseful journey.
Also, its not that easy for Merryweather to replace LSPD except you have an answer for it. This actually should be interesting.

I don't know if you've played Saints Row the Third, but pretty much this exact thing happens with their version of the army about 2 3rds of the way into the story, might be seen as ripping them off (which would be ironic...)

From a gameplay point of view, Martial Law is f*cking annoying.
 
Every played SRTT? STAG lock down the whole area around your home, they block off bridges and attack you on sight. 
 
And BTW, Merryweather left LS after the story. Good idea, though.

I would love to see it, and it should include riots, i'm a sucker of an atmosphere of a city in peril.

It shouldn't be permanent (we would never hear the end of it on these forums), it should be something that you can switch on and off at will (after completing the missions of course).

One thing you forgot to talk about would be new vehicles that should be included, as well as a more prominent appearance of existing military vehicles, new ones should include:

  • ICBM
  • Hunter
  • Destroyer
  • Military Train (and make trains drivable)
  • Aircraft Carrier (would not be drivable as it would cause sevre lag), but an aircraft carrier should be parked near the Del Perro Peir
  • A cargo plane based off the C-17 Globemaster III
  • Military APC
  • A plane based off the A-10 Thunderbolt (Warthog)

Ok people, I've made the decision to create a concept thread out of this. I will incorporate the above ideas and any you may possibly want to share with me.

Currently planning out the plot, but I've already got a rough idea on some of the plot points.

Osho.. stop being a boring asshole. This dlc sounds like it would be amazing. Your just nitpicking every possible f*cking thing that can be criticized. Of course its not gonna be perfect he just summarized it. So instead of whining and bitching perhaps you should leave.
