Vice City


xNamexTakenx

Recommended Posts

I always wondered what Vice City meant. Like, why would they call it Vice City? But, now I know that vice means evil/bad qualities. So, it's kinda like saying evil city, or something. It's true, and we all know it. All of the cities in the GTA canon are all crime-ridden cities. Because, all the trouble you (The protagonist of the game) are causing the most mayhem, killing loads of people. And, it's not just the player who is a criminal. Other characters from the storylines are also criminals. And even people/peds on the street are bad! They commit crimes, such as theft, carjacking, killing, assault and so on.

 

At first, I wasn't too sure about Liberty City, either. I'm like, why would they name it Liberty City, if it's such a crime-ridden city. I guess it's because everybody's free to do what they want, eh? They're free to kill people, or commit any other crime. And, most of the time, they get away with it!

 

I'm not too sure what San Andreas means, though. Probably Saint Andreas? Los Santos is the Saints and Las Venturas is the Fortunes. I'm not too sure about San Fierro, but that probably means Saint Fierro.

Huh, Police Cars have "The City of Vice" on them

About LC - I remember a quote from "Interesting Times", Terry Pratchett.

"Yes, free to get mugged, robbed, killed!"

SA - San Andreas is a California City, about the meaning i dunno.

This tread is worthless

It's big, it's yellow, can't you f*cking see it?

Miami Vice and your explanation are probably the reasons.

Yeah.

All right, you all proved your points. So that is why they called it Vice City in the first place, in the first game.

Drugs - yes.

Rock and roll - Meh. Just rock is better.

I say Flash FM, Wildstyle, and Wave103. Well, also the parts of V-Rock that have Lazlow, but only those.

Really? I don't think San Andreas is a California City. It's actually it's own state, in the GTA universe. San Andreas has 3 main cities (LS, SF, LV) and other, little towns scattered around Bone County, Red County and Flint County. If you noticed, it's way bigger than VC and LC, which are just cities.

 

@Chickstick: Yeah, that makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up.

San Andreas is a city in REAL California.

As far as I understand it, GTA USA consists of 49 states, Nevada and California being San Andreas, and New York being Liberty City State.

What? No. San Andreas is a state based on California. It has 3 cities: Los Santos, which is based on Los Angeles; San Fierro, which is based on San Francisco; and Las Venturas, which is based on Las Vegas. Why would San Andreas be a city, with 3 other cities in it? That's not possible. If you noticed, San Andreas is too big to be just one city. It's an entire state, based on California and Nevada.

 

And what's that you're saying about New York being in the Liberty City state? Wrong! Liberty City is a city based on New York City. And Vice City is based on Miami.

 

Don't believe me? Too bad! Check it on this site: GTA Wikia Cities

You idiot!!! angry.gifangry.gifangry.gif

You are just misunderstanding me.

 

LC is based on NY.

Liberty City State is based on New York City.

 

Vice City is based on Miami.

It's located in Florida, however, Miami also exists in GTA III canon, as evidenced by a billboard and a quote.

 

San Andreas is based on Nevada and California, however, San Andreas is a city in California, so the name is taken from a real place.

Vice means evil or bad?

Some vices can be very pleasant biggrin.gif

 

Calling a habit or other action a vice is just a way to show your disapproval for it. It doesn't mean that it's inherently bad

Miami Vice takes place in Miami

 

in the first game, they wanted a Miami level. So they named it Vice City.

actually san andreas is also the name of the fault line running through the pacific ocean.

so there are two possible places R* might have named it after.please do your research before attempting to make a point.

He did do his research. Did you click on the link in his post? His point was a valid one, as was your own, demonking. It could be one or neither of them that Rockstar used as inspiration.

Its just a game-- had to name them something... relax.

 

My take--

 

Liberty City-- obviously based on NYC-- which has the Statue of liberty.... duh...

 

Vice City-- Miami Vice-- quite apparent.

 

San ANdreas-- clearly a reference to the San Andreas Fault in California-- it is hardly named after the very small town in California--

 

Keep the discussion civil or the thread will be locked...

Don't call me an idiot. First off, you just said everything I just said. So, who's the idiot, now? Liberty City isn't a state. It's a city. And how could a state be based on a city? Like I said, Liberty City is based on New York City. So, I don't know what you're talking about, puta. Yes, Vice City is based on Miami. I'm surprised you got that, even though I'm the one who said it. And, obviously it's in GTA 3 canon. Which idiot didn't know that? *cough* *cough* There is a town in California called San Andreas. But, the GTA San Andreas is a totally different state, and has nothing to do with that town, cabron. BTW don't go all loco on me! mad.gif

 

Off-topic: Did you guys know that in the town San Andreas, in California, there's actually a guy named Carl Johnson? That's f*cking weird!

I am not sure whether the State of Liberty City exists in the GTA III canon, although I think it does, however, it surely exists in GTA IV canon.

Well, if you actually f*cking played the games of the GTA 3 era, you'd know that Liberty City isn't a state! I don't think you have, since you don't even know that Liberty City is just a city. Get your facts straight before making false assumptions. Don't you know that the GTA 3 canon is different than the GTA IV canon? Well, now you know! angry.gifangry.gifangry.gif

Yes, but did anyone say we were talking about just the GTA III canon? No.
