I mean't giving it a period piece.
It gives the game a complete different tone and like I said, I think that's why VC and SA were great because they weren't modern day. They were built on nostalgia which is what everyone loves these days.
That's all nice and dandy, but it does not detract from the fact that you have clearly contradicted yourself. Makes no difference whether it's modern day or prehistoric times.
I simply was implying that VC and SA were so great because they were set in different time periods rather than modern day...
It would be nice to have an HD era Grand Theft Auto game that was set in the past because we've now seen 3 GTA games & 2 Story DLC's set in modern times in the HD Universe.
