Confusion

Recommended Posts

Packiethethug

When GTA IV was made, they completely wiped out all GTA3 canon. So here's where the confusion begins. If GTA3 canon doesn't exist anymore, why do many characters refer to San Andreas and Vice City. Also Why would they if GTA3 Liberty City no longer exists unless both versions co-exist. Somebody help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It doesn't have to make sense, it's a video game. Non of it ever existed. Me I think of Liberty City, 2008 as yet another alternate reality in which Vice City, and San Andreas exist only in the forth generation incarnation.

All of the characters from the last cannon are gone; they kept location/city names the same but revamped their appearance.

I think that Rockstar have clearly taken the 'who cares it's only a game' approach.

Fair play to them.

It's like the leap from GTA2 - GTA3 in a way.

I can put it simply, GTAIII was set in the 80's, we are now in 2008 the next generation of day to day living... a city can changed alot of so many years...

 

Vice city if we were to go back would be alot lot more different due to its time set also being in the 80s, San Andreas though is a state meaning three cities and a mass of countryside and desert, meaning that for a whole state to change so much from the early 90's to now is to far unrealistic.... certain parts of the city would change but not to much...

 

For instance, you look at hollywood it hasnt changed a bit since the 90's except the odd plaza and the way people act and the cars people drive.

 

Las Vegas has always been the same, Las Vegas has never really changed that much style even since the 70's

 

San Fiero yes, it has changed a great deal especially with new fashion market brands in financial districts like FENDI and Vogue.

I think he's just in denial, or confused. I think he sees "GTA III set in 01'" as being RELEASED in 2001, and thinks the game setting is in the 80's.

GTA3 was set in or around 2000-2001, it never said exactly but it was not the 80's. LCS was set in 1998-1999 just before Y2K. A couple years before the events in GTA3. Listen to the radio stations for clues as to the timelines. IE Y2K references in the gun shop adds.

 

GTA:VC was set in the mid 80's, VCS was set in the early 80's 1-3 years before VC.

 

GTA:SA was set in 1992-1993. GTA:SAS we don't know yet but most likely will be set 1989-1990 following the pattern set by the other Stories games.

 

GTA4 is set in 2007 in an updated version of Liberty City. They have said that none of the characters from GTA3 would be in it and they weren't. Does that mean they don't exist? No, LC is a town of millions of people who may never cross paths.

 

Some of the landmarks from GTA3 are still there but not neccisarily in the same places. The city has been expanded and completely redone for the new generation, that same way it was redone from GTA1-2 into GTA3. It's a game after all and they aren't mapping a real city that must remain true to every detail.

 

The GTA world is still the same backdrop where Vice City and San Andreas exist. But like LC they will also be completly remodeled for the next generation if they are chosen for the next games. And because it's a game, they can move stuff if they want to. It's still possible that characters from GTA3 series might appear. But it makes it simpler for them not to do this and keep this generation seperate from the old.
