Going modern is a lot safer if Rockstar want any of that broad demographic money and I'm pretty sure they care more about the money than they do about the fans, so oh well. Maybe we'll get a VC remaster. Probably not.

 

It's a little unfortunate to be setting the time to appeal to a wider demographic, however I think it's this poll where a majority of respondents would rather a non-modern GTA.

 

A majority are actually Modern based happy.


Hopefully an astonishing Las Vegas and Miami remake.

 

 

Actually, if you add up the percentages in the poll, Modern Day choice and Older Time choices are almost equally split. 70s, 80s and 90s equate to 44.83% of the number of votes, so that means that the majority are not happy with modern day.

00's and future don't really count towards modern day. The 00's 2000-2009 last time I checked are the past it's 2017 now. The future isn't modern day because well it's the future.

Counting up all the votes it's the past leading with 301>247

That is preposterous! 274 past votes do not beat 294 modern votes. You're absurd by saying the 2,000's do relate to today's generation and the future to not be a revelation to tomorrow's modern day. The 2,000's are in close proximity to the modern world. You are feeling nostalgia and not plausible.

The only time the 00's really related to today was in the late 00's around like 2008-09 that was only a small part of the decade you still have to consider the early 2000's that are WAY different than today. Also tell me how does the future relate to modern day and why are you counting it when it's ummm...I dunno THE FUTURE.

GTA are most likely are not adding flying cars. So since GTA will not be released in today's modern time, but will around 2018-2020. Making GTA relating to tomorrow's modern time. Fyi 2017 is considered in the 00's generation.

Err..2017 is in the 2010's not the 00's y'know the decade we're in right now. The 00's were 2000-2009 the 2010's are 2010-2019 so that means that 2017 is in the 2010's not the 00's in case you didn't know. I also don't think you understand what the future option in the poll means it's for a futuristic GTA in the future with flying cars, lazers, and all that futuristic cyberpunk stuff think of Akira or Ghost in the shell.

You're very repulsive and keep giving the people understatements. Obviously the "Modern" is winning this poll and represents anything after the year "2000". Look at GTA4 for example. GTA4 introduced good quality cellphones and carried it onto GTA5 as iphones, making it modern and after the year 2000. Before the 2000s, we only had phones for calling and didn't have any apps.

If the Modern times option in the poll represented everything after the year 2000 then why is the 00's option in the poll separate from the Modern times option?

The 00's have a very different vibe from the 2010's the clothing, technology, music, etc are very different from what we have now.

Also if you're talking about the word "decade". Then re-eval-u-ate your "301" to 247, before passing judgement.


Obviously GTA4 had a climax on 00's too

I personally don't consider '00's' to be Modern Day, especially the period when most of the internet access was still done using dial-up, before the widespread of internet social media and HD video game consoles. I consider 2000-2006 as older times.

Personally, but not Generally. Just drop your nostalgic argument, cause it starting to feel unintelligible. For the record, modern is in the lead and most anticipated. But a Las Vegas and Miami settling during 2014-2017, would be an astonishing sequel to GTA5! Case Closed, I'm not going to replie to anymore criticism.

It's not nostalgia, but it's rather the fact that different periods of time have special images attached to them as shaped by technology, movies, music, fashion, and most importantly, political events of that period. GTA has always been capitalizing on this simple fact.

I'd say keep it modern, we've got plenty of GTA style games spanning eras, from the Mafia games, to Saints Row/Agents of Mayhem which I'm pretty sure is futuristic. Maybe take a swing at doing something in Japan, since Sleeping Dogs has kinda been put down for good. Just so long as the franchise doesn't try to go balls to the wall goofy canonically.

Modern times.

Early 2000's wouldn't be too bad but a GTA with camera phones and other bits of modern technology like in V is fun and useful.

They could go back to the 80's or whatever but it would be cool to see updated references about Niko and other HD universe protagonists.

As long as GTA doesn't go all futuristic-y like CoD we'll be good. :lol:

I've been thinking that Rockstar could make it so players can choose a time period that they prefer for their GTA Online experience. 

 

Could have a 80s, possibly 90s and modern period. Each time period has a few minor changes in the city, the cars are different and the pedestrians obviously dress and have their hair in styles to make you feel like you're in that period of time.

 

Then later on you can change it to something else if you choose to by paying the fee like when you want to make changes to your player model. That costs about 10000 so I'd think changing the landscape of a city like that would cost a bit more. So let's say about 50000 or 100000.

I for one would like a setting somewhere in the mid 2000s (2000-2007 mainly), I don't recall many GTAs doing that besides GTA III maybe. It's not too far back but it isn't too modern.

1970s. Great music, cool cars, lots of interesting stuff happening around the world to parody, and drugs and crime were entering a new era. f*ck the 80s and 90s.

The 1970s would be the most boring era of real life American organised crime to portray in my opinion. Not in the sense of research or reading out of interest, but in the sense of it being used as a setting and era for GTA. I just don't think it was explosive or thrilling enough as an era of gangs and organised crime to be best placed within a game like GTA grounded in realism.

The 1980s and 1990s would be a much better better past eras of gangs and organised crime to portray because they contain far more action and hugely dramatic events within that world in real life - however we've already had VC and SA, two GTAs so hugely successful that there legacies still overshadow their successors. The 1960s and the classic gangster/Prohibition era of the 1920s/1930s were already well-covered by the Mafia series.

That's another important reason why I say future GTAs should just stick to modern day.

 

You're right that the 1980s and the 1990s would be better choices than the 1970s. Actually, the 1980s were much more dangerous when compared to the modern days.

modern times - 75+ genders, roam around in pink underpants, fight haters, 4000 lighting screens at every traffic junction to appeal to every gender and alien crossing the roads - this is the current idea of a modern game since most game devs are not intelligent enough ( okay don't ban me )

but Rockstar has a history for giving the finger to the society in it's games and being non-pc so I'd not be too dissapointed if R* attempts at a modern recreation ( if it turns out like V or 4, it'll be decent, although 5 was a pile of crap, the atmosphere was very good )

But I'd still prefer the 80s or 70s, with proper lighting and atmosphere of the respective era,

oh and can i get a mission where i can get to meet some star of the era ( like phil collins in vc, maybe Micheal jackson in 6 and escort him to the concerts and stuff )

Late 90's, early 2000's is probably the only thing not really covered in a gta so far. I think it would be better to have a game before the boom of social media, running around commiting crimes gunning people down in the street while people have camera phones everywhere and can talk about anything on social media seems a bit unrealistic whereas at least before that you could plausibly get away with some of those things without getting caught straight away.
