I Determine about GTA VI to Be Set from the Late 90's to Early 2000's. The Next GTA can Be set in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's, or Modern Day. For Example, if You want the Next GTA set in San Fierro in the 70's, That can Be a Great Setting for the Next GTA.

I'm all for the 1980s, or alternatively, an early 2000's one. But for the most part, a 1980s one.

i want to say modern day but unfortunately today's society is so screwed up. 

 

one thing that annoyed my in gta v was how every pedestrian was on their phones. i dont want to deal with that so ill say any time period that does not have stupid references to hipsters or the economy or politics or healthcare. 

 

 

f*ck the 2010's ill take a 60's 70's 80's and 90's gta any day. 

 

i would love a gta game set in the mid 90's in new york city. it would be beautiful to see the twin towers in a game, thats why i loved driver parallel lines except it took place in the 70's.

Right, because those are only problems of modern day... You seriously think that a game set in the 80's wouldn't have references to politics or the economy? Because Vice City sure as sh*t had those. As would a game set in the 70s, 60s, etc. And you can just replace hipster with yuppie or hippie or whatever.

 

Also, the world of today really isn't all that more screwed up than the world of before. It might be screwed up in different ways, but it's not really worse.

 

 

OT: Anything we haven't seen would be cool. 80s in LC would be neat.

I know it's not the most popular opinion, but I would like to see another modern day GTA. I don't know why people bitch and moan about references to politics and what not as you're going to get that in any decade.

One reason I hope it stays modern is the integration of modern technology such as the internet and mobile phones.

If I had to choose another period it would be the 70s otherwise I want it to be modern. Perhaps modern Boston with a The Departed influence.

Depends on what ''next'' GTA you are talking about. If it is the next MAIN title GTA, wich will be GTA VI. If so, then I am all for modern day setting, simply because I think R* should focus on the modern society in the main title GTA games, but if you are talking about the very next GTA game, wich might be A spin-off, then I am for the 70's. I think the 70's atmosphere would be awesome for a GTA spin off.

I don't know why people talk about spin off GTA so much. Besides LCS, and VCS there were no other spin offs and we know why they did it with PSP being a hit and a game already made, it was just business and easy money.

I'd definitely like a 70's GTA. We've never been there in GTA, or in any open world game (no, I simply don't take Driver PL seriously), and there's a lot to there that can allow Rockstar to create that era specific atmosphere that was in VC and SA. Some great music, clothing, slang.. and there are a lot of movies set in that time which can be used as inspiration since Rockstar loves doing that.

GTA SA and VC are spin offs, so is LCS VCS, TLAD, London 1961, London 1961, and TBOGT. all the GTA's except for the main title ones are considered spin offs. Although because off Vice city and san andreas' critical acclaim, alot of people think that does 2 are a part of the main series, wich is incorrect. GTA Cinatown wars is for nintendo, so I don't know if it can be considered a spin off, but I don't doubt it.

It all depends on the location, but I would really like to see something fresh for once. I'm tired of the present day setting, which we are given in IV and V, not only because third game set in the same time will be simply boring, but also because of the satire getting weaker with every iteration. Present day world is almost a parody of itself, so there is not much to make jokes from.

I forgot about CW, but both Londons, as wells as TLAD and TBOGT are expansions (stand alone or not, that's what they're regarded as), but VC and SA was what I was definitely aiming for. Those games can't be called a spin off in any possible way. Just because people are used to getting things in 1,2,3,4,5... fashion and are baffled when it's not like that, doesn't make it a spin off.
A spin off is a product made ''on the side'' meaning it doesn't have much to do with the main series either in regard to the story (like a movie/game about a certain character who's a side character in the main series), or in video game industry it's often about the platform, with spin-off games usually being on ''weaker'' platforms such as handheld consoles and phones. But VC and SA are as much main titles as 1,2,3,4 and 5 are.

Modern day, but a GTA set in the 1970s would be an interesting change.

I'm afraid R* won't make GTA in other era than modern because they are keen on in-game internet, smartphones and other stupid stuff...

i dont care if other time periods had yuppie, hippie or whatever as you say. i live in 2014. i go outside i am surrounded by hipsters and swagfags. why the hell would i want to play a video game that shoves that in my face again. i play games to escape not to be reminded of what i hate in society. i dont see any hippies or yuppies when i walk outside. 

 

 

and all the sh*tty ass politics and scumbag moves that sue murray and jock cranley had going back and forth was extremely annoying.

 

 

gta v talk show radio stations felt like it was nothing but

 

 

"im a liberal" 

 

you are a liberal"

 

"you are not a liberal"

 

"liberal"

 

"liberal media"

 

"they are not liberal"

 

"millennial" 

 

"ifruit"

 

"liberals"

 

 

 

 

 

it becomes extremely fatiguing when you listen to that sh*t.  its very funny, entertaining and engrossing to listen and be surrounded by a culture that is of a different time period than the one you are in. vice city, san andreas, red dead redemption. la noir, even gta 3. different time periods than when released. even gta 4 was tame with the constant reminders of society at the time of release.

That's just true. And in GTA V they showed it in more annoying way than it is in reality, awful.

 

Oh, and BTW:

 

Sci-Fi,futuristic 2089 setting

That would be the worst thing that could happen to this series.

...even gta 3. 

I know GTA 3 took place in the year it was released, but I don't think it was heavy on trying to be funny. Not once did I hear one political joke about conservatives or liberals. Matter of fact, closest thing to that I can think of is the Maibatsu Monstrosity commercial and how the early 2000's were when those bigass SUVs started coming out. And even then, that's hardly a parody.

I'm American and even though I'm not very politically minded, the only thing I get from the jokes are that the conservatives are illiterate, racist, gun-toting rednecks. The Liberals, on the other hand, are whining, politically correct ninnies. You're not missing much.

not even, politics in gta v come across as a poor skit written by a late night talk show host. they were not funny. wich is a shame because i actually thought the healthcare segments from the lazlow show in gta 4 where hilarious. but in v its literally every station, politics, discussions of liberals, the immigration laws. everything should be in moderation.

 

look at judge grady from gta 4, hilarious and smart. a parody on all the tv judge shows.

 

 

but in v we dont have a parody of the funny stuff, we have a parody of the annoying stuff.

 

this is pretty funny and not annoying

Though it's always funny to see people complaining about modern society. Yeah because the 50's or 60's were so much better. If you weren't a minority.

It's not social issues itself we're annoyed by, but rather that social issues are the only things the game uses as a medium for humor.

Oh I wasn't just talking about real life, but when people in the games do it, too. Even VC for instance parodied 80's society issues. But I agree that the humor needs to be more original next time.

The thing about Vice City was that it did those jokes in moderation, such as the "invading soviets" gimmick on the Ammu-Nation commercials and I believe it being mentioned by Pastor Richards on VCPR, and that was cool and it was tolerable, especially seeing as the bulk of the game didn't throw the same "hurr soviets r gunna invade lol" line at you every time you turn the radio on.
