Vice Metropolitan Area
This isn't your ordinary wish for Vice City II.
I don't really want to push for it in this topic too much as I've already made a thread dedicated to how well VC could work in a future game.
Simply put, the Vice Metropolitan Area is one of the best cases for GTAVI's map. A return to South Florida isn't going to be the just the same old Vice City: a few beaches, some nice neons and some tanned skirt down at the beach. No. When you consider a map, take into account Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and the Florida Keys too. And the Everglades.
Not to mention the proximity to Cuba and the Bahamas.
Especially when you consider the setting in the 80s, bear in mind Miami frequently came out as the number #1 most violent city in the US at that point. West Palm Beach came in at #5. Lauderdale was 8th. Sun, sea and sand it ain't. South Florida in the crazy, cocaine cowboys 80s is one of those rare moments in time when all that crazy sh*t that GTA stands for like rags-to-riches empire building actually happened. This is one of those locations a perfect balance between satire and gameplay can be struck.
Now, I would rather see somewhere else in the next GTA, but I don't mind admitting I've found Vice for VI would be amazing.
Again, this isn't your ordinary plug for London.
Grand Theft Auto in London is long overdue. It would be a tremendous move on Rockstar's part to embrace a British location and satirize British culture.
What I hear most when people knock London as a location is it would be just like Liberty City: a grey, concrete jungle where it always rains.
Like a Vice City VI, London wouldn't be just a stand alone location. There's plenty of countryside. Southend has casinos and weird people - a Las Vegas of the third world. Brighton has beach, sea and diversity. Rockstar has a heart - they're not going to lump you in the city for the entire game with a bunch of angry Cockney's with bad teeth.
London is one of those timeless places that could really work in any modern era. GTA in the 70s? London can pull it off. A return to the 80s? Let's go to a London that's overflowing with a mix of political unrest and megalomania; an emerging drug trade and a diverse criminal underworld. Going to the 90s? Let's do Cool Britannia and the rife European clubland drug culture, gangland executions and violent fallouts. London in modern day? How about poverty, rampant gun and knife crime and an Olympic legacy that glosses over the real cracks in a broken society?
Also worth a mention:
A Baltimore - Philadelphia - Washington D.C supermap. Would be incredible.
Detroit in present day. We've been where people chase the American Dream, we've been where they live it. Now show us where the American Dream goes to die.
