Regarding a 70s setting, I think that R* planned to cover that period in Agent. I recently watched a couple of thriller and spy movies made in the 70s, which is a genre or theme that is very rare, if not completely lacking, in today's cinema. Just a thought, but it absolutely don't negate a 70s setting for a Grand Theft Auto game. A modern-time setting is too relatable and unimaginative for it to be interesting to visit.

Looking at the poll, 70s-2000s, aka, modern-ish period settings, actually has a slightly higher polling than modern. Interesting.

How about very big campaign going trough decades, from 1975 to 2025?

How about if the storyline featured 2 characters, one of which lived in the 80s and the other in modern day. Perhaps the stories would switch from one to another throughout the story, and the 80s storyline would affect the modern day one. Kinda similar to what Black Ops 2 did with it's story.

That sounds absolutely crazy!  But wouldn't then modern telling constantly be changing every time you jumped outta the historic era?  Could become quite confusing if a lot depends on the past elements etc.  I can't think how it would work, since you wouldn't be aware of some of the changes most likely.  It's an interesting concept though!

i want it set in modern times. thats just my personal preference. i like having modern weapons and vehicles. and all the other stuff from the current year. the way i figure it if rockstar wanted to make a game set in the past they should make it a new game series. just like red dead. the red dead series is a lot like gta. but it has a different name and set way in the past. i also dont want it set in the future. although it would be cool to see rockstar make a futuristic theme game series. but not for gta. i like it in the modern day.

I like the period game.  They were pretty good, VC being particularly awesome.  That place just won't work in modern time's I don't think, personally anyways.  I wouldn't mind taking us back to the 50's or 60's.  But then it's more Godfatheresque or indeed LA Noire but from the bad buys perspective.  They're literally done 1900's (RDR), 1950's (LA Noire), 1980's (VC), 1990's (SA), 2000's (III,IV) and 2010's (V).  Picking an era would be essentially having a do-over of some time they've previously visited.

I’d argue that period pieces were a big selling point and appeal for both VC and SA. It’s occurred to me that many on here who are over 25 remember these games quite vividly but there is a generation now that has never really played a GTA period piece. Perhaps SA, but not VC.

 

Again, I’d argue that a late 1990s/early 2000s setting will appeal hugely to the over 25s in terms of nostalgia but also keeps it fairly modern.

I think they should mainly stick to 2000s to 2020. It will be amazing to explore something as fresh as today rather than revisiting the 60s or the 80s for the 10th time. (Kinda reminds me of Boondocks.)

Rather than making it the same game, make it a dlc similar to GTA 4. That way you won't feel pressure to continue in one generation and lose progress to go to the next.

Goddammit why does modern have so many votes? Nothing interesting has happened irl since GTA V and therefore doing anything in the modern time seems more or less the same and pointless. 

Add the votes up for all the period pieces. Modern day is actually behind.
