Why can't the next GTA be in Australia.....or China, or Korea, or South Africa? Well none of us know, but we do know that American culture has more cliches then a porcupine has needles, I'll tell ya whut.

San andreas just touched on the whole deal with snakeheads and human importation, but i reckon if a GTA was set in the far east it would be awesome.

So much crime in places like Bangkok and Indo.

Mr. Mcreary
It's a really great city to vist and lots of neat places to look at. The creators of Grand Theft Auto are even from the United Kingdom so why not ?

 

I mean, I think they covered all of the USA's crime states. They already did Newyork, California and Miami, Florida. They have almost all the gang from the USA in almost every GTA game from "The Mob" to "Crips and Bloods" (The Ballas and Grove was suppose to give Los Santos the whole Crips and Bloods feel). The other states seem boreing besides Georgia but then that would almost be like going back SA again with the "thug" role.

 

If not the UK then they should try Europe, Jamaica or Russia then.

Nah just i don't think it would be fun to play in is all, the whole " London Underground" thing-e just isn't working for me . . .like if they did london it wopuld have to be in the 70's or 80's. Have anyone seen the movie " The Bank Job"? an atmosphere like that would be fun to play in. bored.gif

Only if GTA London has us play as Austin Powers battling our archenemy, Doctor Evil!!!!

That would be a total win!!!

Fact is, they won't make another Austin Powers movie but the Rockstar humor factor and a London setting would make Doctor Evil a fun thing to find in a video game... I just miss that movie series, really... cryani.gif

It's because GTA was originally intended to show wacky stereotypes, and the stereotype for London is a modern Utopia where people eat crumpets and drink tea all day. That doesn't make for a good video game. Also, many people who want it to be set in London are people who are from the UK and think London is the biggest hellhole in the world. They haven't seen some of the places in the US which would serve as a much better setting.

THANK YOU!!!!! cookie.gifcookie.gif

...I thought of this location setting topic/s when the radio announced this morning new ideas for more CSI shows here in the States. This was also brought up over the past few days online here.... but this is true I swear it!

 

The Entertainment news call in guy to the local radio show said one of two Midwest settings for CSI consideration is Minnesota, my state, and Chicago, Ill.!

 

That is rather surprising, but cool non the less. cool.gif

I donno, I always though . . for some reason Vancover, Canada would set as a good location. They got the Asian mobs and all that and it's the fastest city in the east coast . . . . plus, you'd get shot just for walking in east hastingsit can get pretty hetic there . . it's perfect just google the map . . . .but they'd never do it a) it's a canadian city b) people don't think vancover is a dangouus city . . i just say f*ck london and all that and make Carcer. Why not they always make refrences to it????

no one is saying london is the biggest hellhole in the world. we are just saying it has a lot of crime, and seeing as gta is a game about crime (not wacky stereotypes actually), it would be a good, realistic setting. and dont use the whole "oh but londons not as bad as american cities" because its utter bullsh*t. londons rough areas can be just as bad as american cities rough areas.

I don't think they should do it in London cause that would be boring.

 

Doing it in the UK would be cool though. It would have to be a central location such as the Midland's though.

*Rolls down window*

 

Oh Mr. Mcreary.... I DISAGREE!!!

 

*Speeds off*

 

But seriously though, I'm not too bothered where they place the game. We can sit & throw about the names of all these different cities but at the end of the day they've all got streets, cars, police & peds so would we even notice much of a difference in setting?

 

But bring on GTA : West Counry, I'd so steal a combine'aarvester! lol.gif

ARGHHHH!

Typical english yet again! Whenever something good happens in say Scotland, N.Ireland or Wales then it is a British achievement. But if england achieves something it is ENGLANDS achievement and not britains. I remember in a New York newspaper said that Andy Murray, the best Scottish tennis player and in the whole of the UK, was from england, simply because so many americans believe that when people say england they mean the whole of Britain. I'm getting sick of this constantly happening.

 

Rockstar North is located in Edinburgh, Scotland. Yes many people will come and reply and say "Oh but Scotland is in Britain" and sadly that is the harsh truth, but read my point above. Is it any wonder that england is a much hated country? angry.gif

The simple reason it won't be in London is because there are too many people that seriously believe it would be like the Getaway.

 

What people don't understand is that the Getaway was made by a different company. A company with less talent, less artistic flair and a less biting sense of humour.

 

The games would only share a location, but that would be the only similarity. But because there's already so much hate built up around The Getaway, R* will probably steer well clear of it.

 

EVEN THOUGH IT WOULD BE A BETTER GAME.

I would like to see one of the following:

 

London - a 3D remake of GTA London but more modern with all the sites would make the map awesome.

Glasgow - rough as and I just think it would be a good setting but not many sites.

Tokyo (or similar) - I really think they need to make one on the Japanese mafia. Would be a great story and is by far my number one choice.

 

My favourite so far has been the latest Liberty City in GTA4 by a mile.

Ive already said something similar to this in a previous topic , but fuk it lol.gif

 

Im obviously a bit biast as it would be cool for GTA to be set in my country but here goes ,

 

Glasgows Good because

 

1, More gangs in Glasgow than in London even though Glasgows Population is 1.5 Million to Londons 12

2 . Brilliant funny accent that would even make the game tyhat bit more funnny , eh pal man weell eh hink so say its rite but biggrin.gif

3. Loads of Crime and Deaths everyday , sad but true .

4. City with great Culture in the built up areas and slums are absolutely shocking

5. Loads of religion , only 3 words to say on that , RANGERS AND CELTIC

6. A sort of Ramngers Celtic theme as the city is in a divide

7. City has HUNDREDS aND HUNDREDS of different races and religions

 

and plenty more good things , this is all just speculation i know but who cares lol.gif

 

GTA GLASGOW FTW biggrin.gificon14.gif

London has the most culturally diverse population IN THE WORLD.

 

FACT.

 

And I seriously doubt there are more gangs in Glasgow than in London - if the stats you give are right, that would mean that everyone in Glasgow is in a gang. Which they're not.

The simple reason it won't be in London is because there are too many people that seriously believe it would be like the Getaway.

You seem to be forgetting that GTA has always shown the outsider's view on America. I.e. a bunch sterotypes like Ammu-Nation - everbody can own a gun buy going into the local shop and getting one. That's the main reason it can't be set out of the US at all. It wouldn't be fun hearing "Chatterbox" going "Oui, oui, Marcel, que pas non c'est la vie! Hoh-hoh-hoh" or something. And walking down the streets hearing "Tally-ho, ole' chap, let's have a tea!" isn't as fun as hearing "Cheesy Vagina!!!!!!!!". I hope you can understand what I'm trying to get through, I've never been a good writer. It can't be set outside of America because no one (except for Europeans) would find stereotypes from England funny, since there's not too much about out there.
