New setting or back to LC?

Recommended Posts


LC has been done to death but at the same time I wouldn't want to see another rehashed/remade old map and would prefer something new.

Has to be Vice City in the 80s the first Vice City game was set in 1986 and VCS was set in 1983 I think..so it could be 81,82,84,85 or whatever. But it has to return to Vice City to give it the send off it deserves in HD...if GTA 6 is in Vice City set in the early to mid 80s around the cocaine cowboy era it be f*cking deadly.

Liberty City or New York is one of my favourite cities and that's why I don't want GTA to go back there for a while. In order for GTA to go back to Liberty City it would have to be drastically different. I would love a 1980's New York when crime was at an all time high.. There's a great film called A Most Violent Year and documentary as well about 1981 in New York because it was statistically the most violent year in New York.


Setting it in the past would add an extra bonus of IV not looking like a new GTA in Liberty because of the time difference. Also, it would help eliminate any staleness due to two games being modern in a GTA like III and IV.


But yes, look up 1981 in New York. Hip Hop was relatively new, break-dancing, graffiti, turntables and MC battles, apartment blocks got burnt down in The Bronx for insurance purposes, street gangs that inspired The Warriors roamed the streets, graffiti was all over the place, hustlers at Times Square, prostitution, porno shows and the rise of crack cocaine. The places was a filthy cesspool of crime, murder and many other things before the city was cleaned up in the 90's.


Back on topic, I would rather see a new city. Why? Because Liberty City was new to me when III came out in that game-form. Vice City was new to me, Los Santos was new in San Andreas as well as Las Venturas and San Fierro. Since 2004 we haven't had a GTA city that hasn't been done in GTA before in 3D/HD.




Great feature film called A Most Violent Year..

Why do people prefer Vice city (Miami) over Liberty city (New York)? What is there to do in Miami other than the beaches? The city is almost exclusively condos, streets are empty, and the whole state is just full of old rich retiree. People go there to board crusie ships, beaches, or play golf. Also its summer all year round like LA, that is so exhausting. How about a FULL 4 season environment like in New York? Snowy Winter holiday vibe in NYC is unmatched anywhere else in America.


New York is pretty much the defacto cultural, financial, historical and hipster capital of America. 50% of ALL Americans have ancestors who immigrated to America through New York, and the first impression they had was the view of Statue of Liberty welcoming them to a new life. This city is what most people in the world think of, when they think of America. Not some flat boring city made up of multiple boring towns (LA), or a giant retirement home (Miami). New York deserves a million iterations in video games and more, period!


Imagine a GTA game set in the 1920s New York. Imagine the mafia activities, the prohibition, and the great Gatsby parties in Long island Mansions. The penthouse apartments overlooking central park. The crowded tenements of immigrants trying to feed their kids. That is the story of America. That should be something new, not the boring Vice city again. You guys are too high on that childhood vice city nostgia. Vice City would be GTA 5 all over again... Lets do something new! Go to the 1920s!


Rant over, i got a little emotional...
