The GTA V and GTA Universe Neighbourhoods SMACKDOWN.

Recommended Posts

grumpy cat meme

The Grand_Theft_Auto_V_logo_-_transparent_ba and gta3.pngNeighbourhoods SMACKDOWN

 

 

Welcome the The GTA V and GTA Universe Neighbourhoods Smackdown, all new game and debate place of GTAForums. I hope you have fun!

GOAL :monocle:

 

The goal of this thread is very simple: all you have to do is to jump in the debate train started by your dear OP. A series of two neighbourhoods, one of GTA V and one of any other city of any other 3D-HD GTA, will be presented bi-weekly to you (or when I see the debate is over). All you have to do is to tell your opinion on whether neighbourhood X is better than neighbourhood Y.

 

 

RULES :miranda:

 

:^: JUSTIFY YOUR ANSWERS. You don't need to write a 1300 words essay on why you like a GTA neighbourhood better than another, but please at least show some kind of effort.

 

Example of answers:

Mirror Park.---->NO! Mirror Park because it's more modern.---->OK!

:v: DO NOT GO OFF-TOPIC or else I won't like it, Raavi neither. You have the right to discuss of attractions that are within the compared neighbourhoods (example: Talking about Rotterdam Tower if one of the two compared neighbourhoods are The Triangle or Midtown Algonquin.), but can't talk about anything out of their limits.

:^: TRY TO BE POLITE AND CIVIL.

:v: IGNORE THE TROLLS. I'll take care of them personally.

:^: THE FORUM RULES---> http://gtaforums.com/forum-239/announcement-7-forum-rules/ . Sponsored by Raavi.

 

:^::^::^::^::^::^: HAVE FUN! :^::^::^::^::^::^:

 

 

WINNERS :cookie:

 

At the end of each debates, I'll pick RANDOMLY a person who actively participated in this thread and he/she will have the privilege of choosing the future neighbourhoods involved in a which-one-is-better fight. (Remember, it has to be one of LS or Blaine County in GTA V and another from any other 3D or HD GTA).

FIRST ROUND

 

MIRROR PARK VS WESTDYKE

 

 

 

MIRROR PARK

 

Mirror Park is a suburban neighbourhood of Los Santos, San Andreas. Home to hipsters, organic groceries and flipped houses, the community is largely composed of middle class people. The layout of Mirror Park is one of the most suburban in GTA V, being located right next to Interstate 2 and being filled with detached homes.

The mountain-bordered neighbourhood is very green with a lot of trees and Mirror Park. Mirror Park is definitely one of the most beautiful parks in Los Santos, with soaring views of Downtown, tall palm trees and a Lake.

WESTDYKE

 

Westdyke is, again, a suburban city of Liberty City. With one of the most suburban setting in the LC Metropolitan Area, Westdyke is a township of LC's neighbouring state Alderney and is, like Mirror Park, mostly made of single family homes and sinuous streets. The layout of the city is radically different than LC's grit and urban density, with lots of trees within the city, forest and beach on the East and West Coast of the City.

The city is home to several mansions, on the opposite of Mirror Park, which shows Westdyke isn't just home to middle class people, but also to LC's and Alderney elite.

IMO, I prefer Mirror Park due to its proximity to Downtown Los Santos, its beautiful park and gorgeous setting. All the amenities are also located very close to houses on Mirror Park Blvd. The view of Los Santos is also incredible! However, I got to agree that Westdyke is also one of the best places in GTA IV because it feels so different than the rest of the area. So for these reasons, Mirror Park is the winner for me here.

 

Your turn.

 

 

 

WHICH ONE DO YOU CHOOSE?

Great idea :^:

 

I choose Mirror Park, just because of the park with lake. It's great for amazing Snapmatic shots.

Westdyke, because it is by far my favourite place in GTA 4 due to just how different it is from the rest of the city, and the neighbourhood had a lot of character to it, a feeling I just don't get from Mirror Park. I think Westdyke's position on the map helps it, though.

Westdyke because it's the home of the Sultan RS and I love the way Niko says it when you call the police.

 

Mirror Park is still cool though.

I prefer Mirror Park as it better represents the average American suburb. Westdyke on the other hand still felt too urban for me.

Will you choose the neighbourhoods for the second round or you'll pick a random person?

Mirror park looks much cleaner, and it's got a lot of parks.

I like Mirror Park better because of well just how it looks & its nice sunny atmosphere.

 

However it should have included a little gang influence in the area as the area is based on Echo Park in LA & that area has gangs around it. Would have just liked to see a gritty side to it as well.

This is a tough one as both neighborhoods strike me as lovely.

 

In my opinion, both feel like they are somewhat suburbs yet not fully due to the random stores and shops scattered around them, but I still like them. My opinion on Mirror Park is that it is very pretty. The lake is gorgeous and would be lovely to live next to, the houses are somewhat big and have lovely lots, the atmosphere is sort of "out there" and calm[especially in the culdesacs] and the surrounding mountains just look lovely and provide a somewhat prime residential area and I am sure those houses are around three hundred thousand dollars. I love role-playing here as a resident. Hopping into one of my cars parked in the driveway and cruising to the freeway in a civil manner to start a mini-road trip just feels so, right. And I love off-roading towards the hidden dam too, such and interesting place. I just wish that Mirror Park had expanded more into the west and added a slightly bigger, stereotypical suburb with those same house models. That would have been superb.

 

Westdyke has always been one of my favorite places to go. It always offered a more laid back vibe as opposed to the large and executive feeling metropolis that is Liberty City. I've always gone here just to relax, off-road near the cliffs, or role-play. I love the Colonial style houses full of character, the slightly hilly appearance, and the quietness. Its very green and though you don't get a view of landforms, you do get a view of the Alderney City skyline, which can be lovely from the porch of a particular yellow house I like right across from the most eastern mansion in Westdyke.

 

So conclusion? I like Westdyke more. Yes Mirror Park has the lakes, the modern houses, and the mountains, but Westdyke to me just has more character. Westdyke is evidently much older than Mirror Park and I've always preferred older neighborhoods with Colonial style houses from the early 1900's. :) I just wish Westdyke was larger with a few more streets that had only houses on them, a suburb basically.

 

If I had a choice, I would rather live in that lovely house at the northwestern corner of Cariboo Ave. & Tenmile St. in Westyke than I would a stucco two story in Mirror Park.

I don't think I've even stopped to look at or explore mirror park, I do drive by it a lot though, nice scenic view for a driveby.

I always preferred Mirror Park. It looks much, much cleaner than Westdyke.

 

Not only that but Mirror Park doesn't have those fat, sweaty Italian mobsters everywhere.

Although Mirror park is nicer and a better place to live, I've always loved those residential areas of Alderny like Westdyke and Leftwood.

Westdyke. It feels more "homely". Mirror Park is nice, but a little dull IMO.

Mirror Park for sure. Actually, I'll probably side with Los Santos' neighborhoods every time; I just liked them better. Star Junction has a chance though.

Mirror park, due to the lake. Westdyke is also nice, but it doesn't have a lake like the one at mirror park. :p

Mirror Park is a beautiful suburb, with that a stunning lake on a sunny day. The cozy looking houses, the windy streets and plam trees in the park hub makes it feel like a real californian suburb. Furthest from the city, with the mountains behind it. New courts being built.

 

Driving around Mirror Park listening to Radio Mirror Park is si surreal an blissful.

 

Only problem: f*cking hipsters.

 

Now westdyke, always loved it, the most open secluded spot on the map, but still felt to urban and dull.

 

...but that casino though

Mirror park, everytime i drive there its seems to be so calm, i could drive around the neighborhood for hours because its so beautiful. Westdyke although its one of my favorite neighborhoods in 4 seem a bit dull just a partial bit the houses look fantastic, But mirror park over westdyke, rather have hipsters than italian mobsters.

Westdyke. I loved how the neighborhoods looked there so I'm gonna side with that. Mirror Park is...just mostly a park, so I couldn't choose it over Westdyke.

This is a really hard matchup, but I'd have to go with Westdyke, probably because of the contrast between it and the rest of the map in IV making it seem more unique. It was a nice break from the rest of the city, and had a lot of nice big houses. Mirror Park's still a really nice area, however.

Westdyke for sure. I mean mirror park looks nice, but really there isn't a whole lot to do there. One overall issue I have with Mirror Park though is the fact it's really the only suburban area in the whole of LS, which feels completely wrong considering real world LA has absolutely massive suburbs.
