Gang Life in Los Santos

Recommended Posts

Looking at the screenshots with franklin wearing green and him stating his friend is a gangbanger i do think he is dragged back into the gangs just like Micheal and the bank robberies, franklin chasing someone in purple isnt just coincidence i have a feeling that families and ballas are back he is from south central icon14.gif

But yet they wanna come on here and make stupid remarks.. smart asses homie

Just because radio stations, store names, or organizations come back doesn't mean that the ballas or grove street was even real to begin with. I think rock star is really done with that generation. Think of it like the movie warriors, real life New York City but a fictional story, fictional gangs, fictional characters. This is what rockstar meant and how they are trying to separate the whole standard gta universe from the hd universe. San Andreas was a fictional story in a "real life" Los santos. This is why Los santos, vinewood, laz low, etc are all real and return in these universes but the story line is just a fictional tale within a real city. This makes sense about the direction rock star wants or has taken so don't hold your breath for a grove street/ballas appearance.

It's an easteregg IMO. Since I can't see the street gang theme being as prominent as it was in SA I think it would be pointless bringing them back in the flesh.

 

If R* were planning to do so I think they'd make it a bit more obvious than some marking on a bench most people probably wouldn't even notice in the trailer.

 

I don't mean to be a party pooper, but the problem here is people see something in one of these trailers that reminds them of something from the GTA III era and they automatically assume it's a fact. A bit like the guy from trailer 1 running from the cops. People screamed "OMG CJ IN V!!!".

 

No doubt this game will have its throwbacks like GTA IV, but nothing more as far as I'm concerned.

My post is a little different than the people who scream nonsense like CJ!! The reason they are not announcing anything is because they are taking more of a natural approach to things (ala gta iv) instead of.. Hey look gangs!

Of course there will be gangs in Los Santos.

 

Bloods and Crips are still an active problem in Los Angeles, and this will be reflected in GTA V the same way the eastern european/russian mob was in IV.

The way I see it R* allow for stuff like that to come back, but not anything directly story related.

 

Think of Batman Begins for example. Michael Keaton's Batman wasn't used, but rather a new Bruce Wayne/Batman yet it still contained Gotham City and other things familiar within the Batman universe.

 

That's what I see here.

None of us know anything regarding the gangs but I don't see how people come up with certain conclusions when evidence is right in front of them. I'm not saying I'm right but I'm simply going of what we can and if it was just some little easter egg I doubt it would be in the trailer in a way for people to analyze it. Also I doubt they would have someone wearing all purple being chased for no apparent reason. This is Los Santos there will be gangs period. They already said try doing things like flipping people off in the wrong neighborhoods as well as South Los Santos being gang infested. So if Franklin lives in that area and his friend is a gang member as well as himself why wouldn't gangs be prominent in this game? R* has said 3 storylines with 3 very different characters and activities so I don't see why in Franklins case gangs wouldn't be overly prominent.

 

As I said before Ballas, Families, Vagos etc. are representation of LA gangs. With it being evident gangs will be in the game why not just use existing gangs as well as new ones. There need be no relation to SA other then those gangs co exist. Ballas and Families are already perfect GTA representation of Bloods and Crips so why would they create a brand new gangs based around them? It makes no sense.

Are you some kind of retard or can you not read? Nothing has been confirmed period you ass hat but it's more evidence pointing to the Ballas at least being in the game then any of you nay sayers can prove. I say having Ballas in plain sight on a bench as well as a guy being chased in guess what a well known gang color in SA being more then enough to back up those claims. What claims do you have for back up against the theory besides its speculation? I remeber people saying no multiple characters not to long ago when there was more then enough evidence in front of them and we know how that turned out.

Niko Bellic could wear Claude's outfit. Claude's name was in graffiti scattered around Liberty City. This confirms Claude Speed was in GTA 4.

It's because you're not using your head. R* already said these universes are not the same (read the new game informer)

 

direct quote - "The five ps2 games are one universe, and this is the high definition universe, so they don't co-exist. You would never see CJ or Tommy Vercetti, they would be like mythical characters in this world who never existed

 

 

just like characters in a movie aren't real. like Scarface in miami, make any sense yet? Miami is real, Scarface is not. R* is making los santos real, making vice city real, just the ps2 story lines aren't real. really not hard to grasped that, hence why Los santos comes back, liberty city comes back, Mt. Chilliard comes back, because in the gta world these would be the equivalent to real cities like new york and los angeles while the characters are just fictional.

Just so i reiterate... Families is the gang.. Grove could not return because thats a 3 era set. Families and ballas return in NAME ONLY.. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME GANGS FROM THE 3 ERA..

What does any of that have to do with Families or Ballas? As its been said they are representations of LA gangs so why would they create new gangs when they have the perfect ones already? Im still not getting what you're saying with all this real life fake sh*t because Los Santos isn't real either way but if what I'm assuming you're trying to say is that SA was like a fictional tale in V and Los Santos in V is real then that still would have nothing to do with Families or Ballas crossing over. Either way what your saying is just as much speculation as the gangs returning but your idea is wild speculation that has no hints of being what is actually happening mainly since you're basically trying to say what R* never ever hinted at. They simply said they were different universes nothing about one or the other being real or fake.

Umm not really confirmed. Did noone tell you that black people like to colour coordinate their clothes?

Actually, a lot of people do, not just blacks, you f*cking idiot.

 

As for this, I wouldn't really jump to conclusions just yet. You never know, this stuff can easily be a reference, just like Franklin wearing the green scarf around is mouth. Same with "Ballas" being inscribed in the bench that Michael is sitting on in the trailer.
