Myeah, Vice City is probably #1 on my wishlist. But! I'm really starting to warm to the idea of something more north-eastern, maybe midwestern. Carcer City might be too depressing, assuming Detroit as the main inspiration. Maybe something like a hybrid of Philadelphia and Baltimore, with a nearby Atlantic City. Or Boston.

 

Personally, what I think could be cool for Rockstar to do, would be doing one or two more modern-setting games in this continuity/universe, whatever you want to call it, before starting a new line, that's all period-settings, eg. San Fierro or Las Venturas in the 70s, Los Santos or Vice City in the late 70's/early 80's, and Liberty or maybe Carcer in the mid-80s.

Bangkok: I think this would make an interesting setting. It is diverse, unique and has a worldwide reputation as one of the sleaziest places on earth, perfect for GTA. I could definitely see a grimy, neon soaked travel through the Bangkok underworld, something like Only God Fogives. We could see some muay thai implemented. It also has a diverse gangland, Thai Mafia, Triads, Yakuza, Indians, Russians and countless others.

Amsterdam: I was unsure, but having recently gone there I think it would be an excellent setting. I ould definitely see an assassination in a coffee shop or a gun battle in the Red Light Districct. It has such a diverse mix of cultures, the gangs would be fresh and interesting, Dutch trailer park gangs, Moroccans, Indonesians, African street gangs, the only significant Crip presence outside the US, Turkish Mafia, British criminalsl are just a few that could be in there. Almost everyone speaks perfect English too.

- Most wanted:

The whole of USA: a gigantic map full of cities and vast countryside with lots of things to do

 

- If first option not possible even in new gen, then:

a place not done before packed with things to do (like gta vc)

Here's my dream for future GTAs:

 

London 1960s

I think swinging London would be the ideal setting in the UK. The style, music and cars were all just so cool, perfectly GTA. We also had The Kray Twins and Richardsons in a gang war, his would be the best setting to see British organised crime at its height. This is my top choice.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kray_twins

 

Birmingham 1970s

This would give us a chance to see the rise of modern British crime, Ethnic gangs, drugs, hooligans and punk music. Armed robberies where an everyday occurence in the 70s and the armed Flying Squad could make an appearance. In the 60s we'd see Britain as sharp, classy and with a dark underworld hidden behind Saville Row suits, now we see the reality, dirty, industrial and violent.

 

 

Glasgow 1980s

The grim brutatility of the Scottish estates would be shown here. You would start of as a street gang member, having knife battles wth other gangs Before you get involved in organised Crime and the brutal Ice Cream Wars.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow_Ice_Cream_Wars

 

Manchester 1990s

Here we would see the crazy time of Gunchester. Brutal gang wars, crack, raves and Madchester music. This would be really cool, you could start out as a petty hood, selling pills at raves, until you get involved in the brutal gang wars that racked 90s Manchester.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_crime_in_south_Manchester

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madchester

 

UK Modern Day

Here we would see a mash up of all the major cities in Britain, probably a mi of London, a northern city and Glasgow.

Haa! GTA: Hometown!

 

Make it happen Rockstar. My pal Telly Savalas agrees:

I'll disagree that the 60s were the best time for British organized crime though. Sure, you've got the Krays and Richardsons and the likes of Freddie Foreman, but it neglects the diversity that became British organized crime from the 1980s through to modern day.

 

There might be a Maltese gang and maybe a couple of Italian brothers but for me that wouldn't carry the weight of the groups that came about; the likes of the Yardies, Russians, Turks, Triads and Pakistanis.

 

I'd still play the sh*t out of those games however. I could definitely see elements of each of those cities being amalgamated into a London setting if they ever go that route.

^When I said that I mean white British, after the 60s immigrant gangs started to take over, which is just as interesting, but English Firms are unique and interesting. It's mainly the imagery I want from 60s London, the clothes, the cars, the music, it's just so stylish, think the style and imagery could be on par with Vice City's 80s.

 

If we were talking a GTA Hometown, I would love to see a mix of Bristol, Bath and the West Country. Yardie gangs in Bristol, Pikeys and "whte trash" gangs n the country, Triads by the coast. I'd love to see that

BRITLAND

I love the idea of a UK themed GTA, and it doesnt need to be just London, it can be British based with smaller cities like Brighton (small south town with ferris wheel and lots of gays), Blackpool (for the theme park and Tower), Liverpool (for the Beatles music, town would be called Beatletown or Music City to that extent), Manchester (would have stadium and be called something to do with football (soccer), and add a decent size bit for Scotland to the north, with Edinburgh castle, R* offices, Glasgow type town, and of course add Loch Ness with the Loch Ness monster easter egg about, also add oil type industries at the north sea) hey you could even build a wall similar to the Berlin wall for comedic purposes at the border which could make for GTA craziness were Scotland is independent but don't let their people out similar to how East Germany did back in the day or something to that extent

Am i the only 1 who wants an ENTIRELY ORIGINAL city. Bcuz then it will be more fun to explore, and then They could build the city according to the theme of the game. (Mafia, drugs etc.)

 

Otherwise, Vice City & Surrounding areas

Yes, I'd also like that. It's basically like The Crew mixed with GTA. I don't think this will happen for several years, though.

Moscow, the 90's.

 

The communism is gone. Everyone is drunk on freedom, glasnost and free american 'bubblegum'.

Those who drink and hope for the Reds coming back is eventually drown in alcohol and their apartments are being stolen by con traders.

Those who realised that their bosses are gone and start making decisions, must now deal with mafiya "roofing" offers to survive.

 

Revolution is chaos. Chaos is full of opportunities. Claim or be claimed.

Such are the 90's in Russia.

Another one in china town, but not another ds version. A proper console and pc version. Also a British Version Like the old GTA london, that might be cool with a different range of vehicles. Maybe it could be possible to enter Scotland, wales and england. The missions would be a complete difference, and you would need to get guns shipped over which would be a cool mission or side mission. I'd much rather see a british version, then china town but they would both be cool.

Imo the problem is not that it is not possible. I guess it would be as R* could e. g. cache out the content of the map not used. But the problem is to create all that stuff. Anyway maybe we can expect even something like that as R* purchased licences for auto generating map software several years ago. With that software it is possible to generate whole cities and especially whole maps based on reallife structures (like downtown, neighborhoods etc.) within a couple of days for which a modding team would need several months at least.

As they have never used software like that in any previous game they released it is very likely they will do it in the future, otherwise they would not have needed to buy the expensive licence.

Toronto, take the mick out of my country even more than usual. Provided they make the movement good, keep Vs driving, make the city interesting, and make gunplay more rdr like, the game would be a success. Then again it is in canada...

I want a proper version of San Francisco, it has a lot to offer and looks amazing:

 

The City:

And there's still a lot I haven't mentioned and I think Northern Cali would be the perfect spot for GTA VI.

 

PS.: I have almost forgotten this:

 

 

 

Golden Gate Bridge!!!

I don't get how people can want it to be set in one of the places it has already been set.

Unless you mean London, of course.

I hope it's in London or a completely new place.

I suppose either Las Vegas or Miami would be good settings or maybe San Diego. Casino heists would be good like in San Andreas.

I would love the see a HD version of Las Venturas, San Fierro and Vice City but if it had to be a new city I would say New Orleans mixed with non-existent locations so the map could be even more amazing.

Personally, more than anything else, I would love to see Carcer City done in GTA, preferably as a satire of Detroit and Chicago. There's a lot you could satirize and landmarks in both cities can be remade easily.

 

Plus, think about the thematic continuity in the HD Era and how it concerns the concept of the American Dream....

 

GTA IV-Liberty City (New York City): Where the American Dream is born.

GTA V-Los Santos (Los Angeles): Where the American Dream is epitomized.

GTA VI-Carcer City (Detroit): Where the American Dream goes to die.

 

Other concepts I'd like to see that could easily be done....

 

Vice City (Miami, Florida)

Las Venturas (Las Vegas, Nevada)

Capital City (Washington DC)

An archetypical Southern city like New Orleans or Atlanta

 

 

And one I think would be cool but I know would never happen due to the city's relatively small size and obscurity.....

 

Roanoke, Virginia (it's where I live, it's known for the Blue Ridge Parkway, being a major railroad hub for the South and Mid-Atlantic, and having one of the highest crime rates in the state of Virginia)

London. GTA is british.

A GTA set in London for the series' 20th anniversary would be brilliant.

Didn't one of the Housers say that gta is a parody of american culture and a non american gta was not likely soon?i think they said something like that yeah. thats just a flimsy excuse though in my opinion. the real reason is they just think the USA is a more interesting setting for the games. plus everybody knows the big american cities (like la and nyc) from seeing them on television and in films. its as simple as that

 

they will have to leave the USA at some point though because the "look how wacky americans are" thing has been done to death. once vegas, miami and a couple other cities have been done there won't be any reason to stay in america and thats when we'll see gta london
