If Rockstar made another CTW styled game


Zello

Recommended Posts

Have you ever wanted Rockstar to make another game similar to Chinatown wars with the same top down view and gameplay just in a different city, with different characters, and a new story? I know handheld gaming is kinda dead unless it's on mobile but I could live with them releasing it on IOS, Android, and Nintendo 3DS.

 

I'd love to see what they could have done with a CTW styled top down version of San Fierro or Vice City especially Vice it'd have been the perfect fit with the drug dealing system CTW wars introduced.

I'm not advertising at all, but I'm creating (with some few guys) a GTA CW style game set in Brazil.

IMPUNES

 

And yes, we were fans wanting to be like a Rockstar.

@Junior_Djjr: That looks really awesome, good job!

On Topic: I haven't played much of Chinatown Wars yet, but Zello took the words out of my mouth in the OP. I just don't know how well the game would sell though,

and it would probably take something really innovative to not only make the game appeal to most GTA fans these days, but perhaps revive hand-held gaming.

Perhaps they could capitalize on Nintendo Switch with the right timing

It would be great, but as long R* Leeds made it. I LOVE Chinatown Wars, plus it would make the old-school GTA fans very happy man. Very happy.

Yeah it would have to do something different than CTW did R* doesn't really like to do the same thing over and over again.

I would have liked one In Los Santos where you play as a member of the Vagos, who are in a deep rooted bloody gang war with The Armenian Mob. it would have been nice to finally play as a Latin gangster & it would have been an opportunity to explore some of the other gangs in Los Santos who were just afterthoughts in V.

 

I would have set it a year after the events of V.

3DS is definitely a good market for Rockstar considering the success of Chinatown Wars. I'm not big into phones but I'm sure iOS and Android would be a good market too.

 

3DS is the best bet because of a stylus and two screens, you can have the interactive features Chinatown Wars had. Nintendo would get even more sales for the already 3DS considering people bought a DS for Chinatown Wars.

They should not, under any circumstances, make another sh*tty game like CTW. I've played the game and it's just a massively scaled down version of GTA IV, with boring gameplay and cutscenes. And the word "massively" is an understatement.

One of my favorite games from the whole franchise with all the little stuff you could do. :)

I can see a similar perspective game working for the Nintendo Switch. It's equally likely we'll see a title like that at some point in the Switch's life cycle, because we've already seen other more mature ports happening and it was considered an unusual move to have Grand Theft Auto titles on Nintendo consoles to begin with. I wouldn't be surprised to see a spin-off title at some point, and I think the isometric style would work really well on a console as portable as the Switch.

 

I think the problem with Chinatown Wars was the limitations imposed on it. As powerful as the 3DS is, it was always going to feel inferior compared to more mainline titles.

If they ever did another CTW style game, I could see them doing it based on V's Los Santos and just cutting you off from the countryside (or including a very small amount of countryside, but not featuring anything too far north of the Vinewood Hills), as well as other small changes made around the city to accommodate the new style. Nintendo Switch would probably be the ideal main platform for it, too. I'm sure a release for iOS and Android would still be possible, but given the poor sales of every other mobile port of their games, it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't even bother with having one for phones and tablets.

If it's in Vice City, they should do an HD universe version of that Pepe guy from Vice City as a protagonist. :)

I can't see it happening to be honest. Chinatown Wars as good as it was, sold far less compared to other GTA games, even if it was one of the best selling games on the DS. It wouldn't be a bad idea to do a successor though, what is Rockstar Leeds up to these days? See, Rockstar has all these talented studios but it seems to me like they really don't do much with them.

It's too bad that there probably isn't much of a business incentive for them to make another portable GTA. Kind of like what happened with the Stories titles, they were great, but despite selling well on the PSP, they probably still didn't do as well as Rockstar were hoping (and the mobile port of LCS especially didn't do well). I still think we should have gotten a Los Santos Stories that would tie into San Andreas at the very least.

 

I feel like all Rockstar's other studios besides North and San Diego seem to be doing is providing support for development or QA of GTA and Red Dead, rather than developing their own titles. Some haven't made their own in well over a decade, and then Rockstar India hasn't even made anything. I think the company just delegates work from North to these studios now instead of having them developing their own full titles.

I was hoping that they'd develop a title for the PS Vita, but it was hardly worth it since that system was a poor-seller in itself (a GTA title would have probably helped to boost sales tho). I guess Rockstar sees the handheld market as more of a niche these days, which is may they don't bother wit hit much (aside from mobile ports.

 

Like Rockstar New England, India seems to be more of a support studio, though they're said to work in conjunction with the country's Technicolor department as well.

If they make a new CTW style game they should add in real music, instead of what they had in CTW.

The music in CTW was real music though?

Yes, but it was all instrumental music. I think he meant songs with lyrics.

Doesn't matter if it has lyrics or not. It's still real music. 

 

Spoiler

By the way, I know he was implying he wanted music with lyrics which I agree with, however it's a bit unfair to say that instrumental tracks aren't "real music"

I'd like to see something related to LS being made into a new game with the same mechanics as GTA CTW. 

Maybe not the entire city, but a few important areas. That would be really awesome.

It's a fun game to play on your phone when you're bored or something. I've played it in school once and one day seemed like a few minutes to me... I never decided to actually go and go through the storyline though.

 

OT: Yes, but in Los Santos or Vice City.

I played GTA2 top down classic on PS1 it was superb !

 

I think GTA CW would be a nice basis on a totally new game 

top down , FPS , TPP sort of gameplay.

Triads, Yakuza, San Andreas mash up plus Outlaws that must 

be a perfect recipe for another successful game Rockstar.

2D games in this style no longer appeal to mass audiences, I doubt if Rockstar made another CTW styled game it would be "successful". If you don't believe me look at Nintendos reports of extremely poor sales of CTW itself.
