What's with the hate towards using SF in future?

Recommended Posts

Budweiser Addict

One thing I've noticed a hell of a lot of around the forums is people blasting SF and claiming it's too sh*t to include in a future game. I've got to ask though, why?

 

Yes Rockstar f*cked up with San Fierro (and even Las Venturas) in San Andreas, leading to it being an ugly, undetailed and poorly mapped hell hole of a place to be. But anybody who knows a thing or two about the real San Francisco knows that they really made a screw up. This is why R* are separating the cities from San Andreas in the HD era, to give more focus on an acurate representation, as opposed to throwing together a bunch of places they've seen in movies.

 

San Francisco may not be all neon lights, sports cars and ghetto (which seems to be what everyone playing GTA these days wants), but it's definitley GTA material. I'm a big fan of the idea of basing a SF game in the 70's (enough culture their to rival their representation of Miami in VC), but even today I couldn't imagine it being as bad as GTAF members are claiming.

 

So just tell me, please, what the f*ck have you all got against San Fierro?

Someone like me who has no clue about real SF has no reason to say I hate it.

The only thing I disliked that there was no way I could use the tram and also, lack of good interiors.

Otherwise, it was nice as a city ( incl LV ) to roam around, looked better than LS atmosphere wise.

Still, the driving felt like going through tight spaces in the city.

Even contemporary San Fierro could work as an excellent counter to glitzy, sunny, superficial Los Santos as it was presented in V. It's easily my top pick for next GTA's location. When I think about the dense urban environment, trademark hills, weather, architecture and possibities for countryside... f*ck yeah, I want an HD era San Fierro right now!

 

And, honestly, of all SA cities, Los Santos deserved the HD remake least. I think, with the kind of story R* told in V, setting it in, say, Washington would have been much better. Of course, they wouldn't be able to go on a tirade about celebrity culture there, but I wouldn't miss it. R* did LA justice already in SA, it was San Francisco and Las Vegas who got the short end of the stick there.

Yes, plus they made LS too small (shh) to look like LA so they could go for San Francisco (it doesn't have to be big actually) :)

1. San Francisco doesn’t especially attract me, I find it a rather dull city.

 

2. I'm totally against repeating past GTA settings, I don't care whether they were poorly portrayed in past GTAs or still have plenty of original storyline possibilities.

 

3. This point is related to the previous one, I want a brand new setting we haven't seen yet, because USA is bigger than NY, Miami and So Cal, right? What about Texas and the Southern, Midwestern or even Northwestern coast?

 

So this is what the f*ck I have against it.

Well this is the most valid point I've seen yet. I myself am in a lot of support of seeing a new setting based on either Boston, Dallas or New Orleans. I just feel that if Rockstar want to keep recycling the same old locations, San Fierro is the best option.

We already say the west coast in V, so why dwell there? Why not go to the south or rust belt?

Although the idea feels weak when talking about it, I am no San Francisco expert, but SF in GTA San Andreas was small as f*ck. It felt like a small abonded city. If R* are gunna make San Fierro in the future, it needs to be something big and cool. I know for sure that the bay area is amazing in San Francisco

 

 

But still, I am more towards a new Vice City :)

San Fierro was small, but it was a great town.

Because west coast is better. But yeah I agree, confederate south would be nice too as long as it's not somewhere in the f*cking midlands.

San Fierro was always my favorite city in SA. I'm not against the inclusion of SF being a location for a future game, I just want the first 'new' game on next gen to be Vice City. SF will be fine, but I just want Vice City more.

They might be able to incorporate it if they ever do DC, if you can even count that as the south.

I'm pretty sure you can't.

 

As for SF: It could of course work, but probably not the VI, it might be just a bit too similar to V for that.

How would that ever even be remotely related to the south? It's basically Canada level.

Not quite, it is on the border of Virginia, one of the CSA, so it's not a million miles off, but calling it 'southern' is probably still a bit of a stretch.

I dunno, lots of people here say that Washington DC is technically the South seeing as it's sandwiched between Virginia & Maryland, that are both southern states according to them. But what defines a "southern" state. a state that's geographically south of a certain point, a state allied with the confederates in the civil war, etc.

I think that if there is going to be Washington DC in GTA it should be named Cleaningston.

What the f*ck, you need to get your eyes checked.

 

You have a map right f*cking there, with DC marked and you still think it's south? Yeah it's south of Canada but that's f*cking about it.

It doesnt' even reach the line of north Carolina and you still think it's south?

The most you'd deviate from it being North is to call it East Coast..
