<City Name> Stories

The PSP Exclusive, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, took the prexsisting city of Liberty (As seen in GTAIII) and transferred it to the PSP. Along with a new story, new and old characters as well as some new features.

 

Now my suggestion for future PSP realeases on Rockstar's behalf would be to carry on with the current trend and continue to convert the entire GTA 3D series into a collection of PSP compatable games.

 

Currently we have: Liberty City Stories so the next obvious step would be Vice City Stories. Easy enough; Vice City was smaller than Liberty City. No Problem. Though when we come to the third GTA 3D installment, San Andreas, we hit a little problem spot.

 

I do not believe that at this point the PSP would be able to handle a San Andreas sized map. So my idea is to seperate the state into its three cities creating the games; Los Santos Stories, San Fiero Stories and Las Venturas Stories.

 

I shall now tackle these games one title at a time; starting with Vice City Stories:

 

Vice City Stories

 

I would like to see this game set two or three years after Vice City. As a new arrival to the city of Vice you start of, as you do in the orginal, with a single hotel room to call your own.

 

You soon begin to get involved in the popular Vice Criminal Scene and find yourself working for a selection of new and old faces. Of course a major character in the game would have to be Tommy Vercetti (As a employer, not the main playable character).

 

Other characters I would like to see return include; Phil Cassidy, Mercedes, Cortez, Love Fist, Kent Paul, Avery Carrington, The Truth and The Forelli Mafia amongst others.

 

I would like to see this game tie in with the rest of the series (Most definatly Vice City!). An idea that came to mind was that Tommy pulls an Salvatore and puts a hit on Ken Rosenberg, during the course of the game you befriend the narcotic Lawyer and instead of killing him as Tommy requests you aid him in his escape to Las Venturas.

 

The game could let you go off to Las Venturas with Rosie (Possible tie in with LVC) or another option is the fact that you stay in Vice. Of course after betraying him Tommy wants you for dead. The game could set in up that you kill Tommy though this would definatly be a big NO for fans of Mr. Vercetti.

 

New features included in LCS such as the Car Salesman side-missions for example could be applied to this game through Sun Shine Autos.

 

Los Santos Stories

 

I believe that the best way for Rockstar to tackle this game would be to make a San Andreas prequel. The events in the Los Santos Stories would lead up to CJ's migration to Liberty City.

 

Obviously not that many of us would want to play as CJ again, its been done, new character please! There is of course a number of Grove Street Homies to choose from; Sweet, Ryder, Bear, Big Smoke and even possibly Brian Johnson.

 

Los Santos Stories would focus 100% around the Gang/Turf-Wars of Los Santos. It would include the powerful Orange Grove Street Families, the fledgling Ballas, the Varrios Los Aztecas and the Los Santos Vagos. Rockstar could even possibly create a few new gangs to add to a game that would feature mostly around Gang Violence.

 

The Turf-War mode as seen in San Andreas would be present in LSS during the entire course of the game. The ability to attack and defend yours and enemy turf will be available from the beginning of the game right through to the very end.

 

LSS would include the OGF's struggle to keep the families together during while at the same time losing turf on all sides to a growing Ballas Gang that has seemingly appeared out of no where.

 

The climax of the game of course would feature Brian's death, and CJ leaving Los Santos because of it. A few possible missions afterwards could show Sweet, Ryder and Big Smoke's desprete attempt to save Grove Street.

 

Another option is too leave the game before Brian's death and merely leave it unexplained. Say it happened somewhere in between LSS and San Andreas. This option would allow you to play as Brian Johnson (My first choice in protaganist).

 

San Fierro Stories

 

Las Venturas Stories

 

San Fierro and Las Venturas Stories still in the planning stages. Any ideas or suggestions about these two games or any of the Stories games would be greatly appreciated.

 

In the mean time, what are you thoughts on my ideas?

Erm...no.

 

 

What makes you think it will be called <City name> Stories? Just because one GTA for the PSP has the word Stories in it doesn't mean the next will.

 

My thoughts on your ideas is not that great. Rockstar will probably not even make a new GTA with those cities in it.

Why wouldn't the next GTA PSP be called <City Name> Stories? Los Santos Stories sounds alot better than Grand Theft Auto: Tales from the Ghetto and Las Venturas Stories sounds alot better than Grand Theft Auto: What happens in Venturas, stays in Venturas.

 

Of course, I don't think that Rockstar would come up with such bad subtitles.

Why would Rockstar go to the trouble of creating new cities for "non-major" titles in the GTA franchise? GTA IV will be the next major title, Liberty City Stories and it's sequel(s) exist to give fans their yearly GTA fix until GTA IV is released.

I'm not saying in any way that this what Rockstar have to do the next PSP title in this manner. I'm not even saying that they have to make another Grand Theft Auto for the console (Though they would have alot of unhappy fans if they didn't).

 

This board is about the discussion of ideas about the next Grand Theft Auto. These are merely my ideas[/b] about the GTA PSP series.

 

Just saying "no" without some constructive critism to back it up is just stupid and not the kind of response I was looking for. Surely if you gave some reasons why you believe that Rockstar will act the way you are saying, and why my ideas "not that great" then that would be great. If not then please don't bother to reply in this topic anymore.

I think SF and LV would be hard since San And was mostly centered around LS but here I go.

 

San Fierro Stories

 

I think you could put it durring the time before SA but in San Fierro. You would play as one of the Sydicate members. T-Bone Mendez, Jizzy, or Toreno. The story could be about how either Toreno formed the Syndicate or ho the other members joined. The could probably put the gang war aspect some where in there with the Rifa, Da Nang Boys, and Triads fighting and more gangs possibly. The game could probably be based around how Toreno's involvement with the government and all thier secret things they do.

 

Las Venturas Stories

 

You should probably play as a minor mob boss woking for one of the Mafia families. It could take place after SA with the story being centered around the Mafias getting back at the Triads for the robbery. The 3 gangs could probabaly form some alliance just so that they could put the Four Dragons out of bussiness. Las Venturas could end up turning into a war zone and Some of the other Casinos could complain about the increased gang disturbance in the area.

 

The stories are a little rough but I tried sigh.gif .

Just my ideas. They also could do somthing like Badlands stories and Desert Stories. But thoes kinda sound wierd... smile.gif

Medallion Man

I don't own a PSP and I doubt I ever will, though if one thing would tempt me it would be the kind of scenario you suggest here.

 

Whilst I absolutely hate the idea of GTAIV being set in the same old cities singing the same old song, I really have no quarrel with the PSP games being set there.

 

In affect the PSP games (when they're plural) are little more than mission packs, however the reason is obvious: the existing cities, by definition, already exist, they're already fully modelled, so the size of the production team and the time it takes to produce the games is slashed. I see no problem with that for the PSP.

 

Vice City Stories

One thing I would say is that any Vice City Stories has to be set in the 80's, the era and the city of Vice are inextricably linked, I can't see modern day Vice being any more than a colourless shadow of its big haired, day-glo self.

 

I also agree on the working for Tommy idea, however seeing as Ray Liotta now (hypocritically) regrets the fact that he was a part of a violent production in Vice city (though not Goodfellas or as an aperitif for Hanibal Lector) he won't be lending his voice to the role, I'd suggest that Tommy would be a silent character more hinted at like Dr No or the dude with the cat in inspector Gadget.Oh and I'd hate it if we kill him, Tommy was a special one...

 

Los Santos Stories

This would be great I think, San Andreas's story and atmosphere suffered for its size but a restricted Los Santos with a concentrated and consistent 'gansta' theme would trump it.

 

I think playing as 'BJ' has some appeal but how about playing as Cesar and showing the Hispanic side of the 'Thug Lyfe'?

Rockstar should not and I repeat keep on making GTA PSP games after the third one as it would get quite repetetive. It would lower that special feeling of getting a new GTA game released. It would feel like an annual sports game which just slight improvements.

 

The way I see it they should emulate the trilogy of the PS2 version onto PSP. Obviously have Vice City but the real problem would be San Andreas. The way I see it would be to either concentrate on Los Santos because that and Liberty City are easily the best cities. So make GTA: Los Santos [insert subtitle here] or make three games on San Andreas but have it on three discs. Price then comes into discussion. So how about release the acutaly three discs for £50 or individually for £20 each for people who cannot afford it all three at the time of single purchase. Remember all three San Andreas discs use the same save file on your memory stick.

Choice of titles;

Vice City Legends

San Andreas Chronicles; (which include)

The Los Santos Tragedy - Death of Mrs Johnson

The San Fierro Complication - "City of Complications" One of the San Francisco nicknames

Las Venturas Empires - The Rise of the wars between the different casinoes.

 

All the games should be made in Vice City style like Liberty City Stories because San Andreas style would mean them spending more time on PSP games which would mean get back to drawing board and would take up more space but obviously add more features like more vehicles e.g Bullet and Elegy, swimming and clothes system should be like San Andreas and my personal want downloadable clothes for true customisations.

Relax, pal, they're just suggestions. And judging by the rest of the thread, it's a pretty popular idea.

 

Hey, I'd pay $50 (in trade credit, anyway) for a straight Vice City port to the PSP. New stories are a bonus for me. If these guys want to give Rockstar some ideas, more power to 'em!

It is my opinion, and I just don't think that the next city for the next GTA PSP should be San Fierro or Las Venturas. Sure, I wouldn't mind Los Santos but I am not really into the "ghetto" theme. I would like it to be based around the Downtown area rather than the Ganton area.

 

@tommyalma: All I said was I didn't like the names, I never disagreed with his ideas.

@Pyrrhus: Good point, but as the topic starter said, a whole big city would be too big for a PSP game, they would either have to make a new city, or chop down the size a little.

What about Liberty City. That was a whole city and infact they extended it abit on Shoreside Vale and do you really want to see Rockstar put an effort into making a whole new city just for the PSP when they should be doing that for the next console.

He said a whole BIG city, Liberty City is small.

Los Antos isnt that much bigger than Liberty City and San Fierro was pretty small. We are only talking about city limits and not the countryside.

Vice City isn't much larger than Liberty City. The area that makes Vice City larger is the beach which is wasted space in my opinion.

 

The individual cities of San Andreas are about the same size or slightly larger than Liberty City, the bulk of the game's map was used for the countryside and the desert. So even if the entire state won't fit on a UMD (if it did there I'd imagine that there would have to be loading screens between the Los Santos/Red County, San Fierro/Flint County and Las Venturas/Bone County areas) the individual cities would fit.

From every source I've heard (including ingame!) it says that BJ was CJ and Sweet's older brother. Until you can show me some hard evidence proving me otherwise then I shall stick by my story.

Actually, they never specified Brian's age. sigh.gif

 

I do think that he is the younger than both CJ and Sweet though.

I know I read it somewhere that he was killed at the age of ten. Somewhere I just can't point it out.

 

Anyway it would be good if the protagonist was either B-Dup or Big Bear.

I think playing as another OGF Member is a must. I want the game to focus around the death of Brian and the Balla's conquest of Los Santos. Though other stories could be used:

 

Big Bear

 

Big Bear's story would focus on his struggle against drugs. He could start off as a Orange Grove newcomer but slowly makes his way to becoming one of the best, most loyal Family Members.

 

Then his story would steer right back in the other direction with him slowly turning to drugs and doing missions for the Balla's against the Grove in order to feed his cravings.

 

I don't think however that Big Bear should end up being the one who kills Brian though. For one he used to be a Grove Street Gangster himself and in turn would have become good friends with CJ, Sweet and Kendl. Betraying the family is one thing but I don't think he would have gone as far as to kill (according to everyone on here) a ten year old child.

 

Also CJ turns to Big Bear for help at the beginning of San Andreas. If he was the one who had killed his brother would CJ of really turned to him for help?

 

Ceaser Vialpando

 

Playing as Ceaser could offer alot of insight to a currently mysterious gang (Los Santos Vagos). Ceaser's gangs and origins are never really explained during the course of San Andreas. All that we know about him is that he a hispanic gangster from the Los Santos Vagos who likes lowriders and falls in love with Kendl.

 

Ceaser's story could also focus on the expansion of the Balla's in Los Santos. I'm sure that the Vagos had problems with the Balla's once they started moving in on everyone's turf.

 

Of course with Ceaser as the main character the game would feature alot of Lowriders and street racing ,a concept I was thinking of saving for San Fierro Stories.

 

With this story in mind we would not be able to potray the death of Brian Johnson. With the Vagos and the Grove at a neutral agreement there wouldn't be that much action between the two gangs and therefore no way to see BJ's demise (I'm guessing he was killed by a Balla).

 

Unless we introduce him near the end of the story. Ceaser could end up helping out the Grove, thus putting into motion the whole Ceaser-Kendl relationship.

 

Catalina!

 

Possibly one of the more strange and controversial options. As Ceaser's cousin I'm guessing she used to be a member of the Vagos before being put into exile. The game could focus on the events leading up to this point and then her eventual revenge on the city that disowned her.

 

This storyline would take us no where near Brian's death. And the concept of gang warfare would be completely missed seing as how Catalina isn't really the gangster type now is she?!

Catalina? Not being sexist but I don't think the woma protagonsit is the best way to go. It was in the original but not when it is a visualed as this. One place for example it will not work is having sex with hookers in your car unless she has something she is hiding rolleyes.gif. Seriously though I don't think a woman protagonist would actually work.

 

My prefered character would be wither Big Bear or Ceaser.

I think the whole Vice City Stories thing is good.

 

I mean it could possibly mean that we could play as Diez or Lance and that would be preety neat. I mean it could be set like 3-5 years before Vice City.

I guess it would have to be 3 because anyone notice how the games are all based on timelines and the time being a multiple of three.

Exhibit #1:-

 

GTA III: 2001

GTA Vice City: 1986

GTA San Andreas: 1992

GTA Liberty City Stories: 1998

 

Abit coincidental don't you think?

I dont think they will make a brand new city just for the PSP they most likely will stick with City's they have already did like Vice City and San Andreas.

San Andreas is not a city, it is a state.
