The game's setting


Recommended Posts

So I was just reading the manual of this game and the front cover of this game says that the date is October 30, 1998. But that can't be right because in the game, the bridge's completion was expected in May 1998. Is this another error by R* they were obviously too indolent to catch?

R*'s games are always full of continuity errors like this. You kill Miguel in 1998, and he is the first character you ever see in GTAIII (intro cutscene). So its better to assume that things went in another direction than it happened, like Miguel was hospitalized after the shooting and got saved. Or that even though GTAIII mentions events of Manhunt in 2001, while the calendar in the reporter's apartment says 2003 in the game, you just have to use your imagination..

A theory about those MH events is that Gary Schaffer might have had problems in 2001 already but they happened again in 2003.

yeah i heard about that too. but atleast we hear the carcer city exist in gta3 / gta world and that feels a lot better than seeing the "see you in miami" billboard in everywhere. you might say that they havent decide the name of vice city yet, but hey, a crazy idea, original gta featured lc, vc and sa back in 1997.. i remember the times back in 2003 when people said that the next game will be named "sin city" and i was facepalming all the time. "sin city" the stupidest name ever heard for a game..

Never heard of those theories, probably because I joined the GTA fan scene in 2008 :p I myself think that Manhunt's events are canon to the 3D Universe GTA's - not the HD ones. I don't know... it just appears to be somewhat more logical for me.

The GTA series is full of continuity errors.

Well that's a good point. For example - how the hell didn't Claude change clothes for almost a whole decade? :lol:

Next game wasn't called sin city, indeed. But it did contain Sin City (Las Venturas)
