Has being in New York influenced R*?

Recommended Posts

Yes I know they have studios all over the world from Edinburgh to India but the Housers and their main office are in NYC where presumably all of their major decisions get made. Has being in New York influenced R*? I think it has from the stories they write to how they present their image to the media and fans.

Hmmm nice bike

It obviously influenced GTA III and IV, but I feel like it also may have influenced how the Housers see the rest of the country as well. Places that echo small town/Middle America (not even just places in the Midwest like North Yankton, but also the countryside areas in SA as well as Bullworth) are seen as backwards sh*tholes where everyone has southern accents, even though they're on the west coast where those accents geographically don't exist outside of people moving there from the south. A rust belt city like Carcer City is a rundown and half-abandoned sh*thole.

 

In IV, Liberty City was sort-of a love letter to New York, with the in-game media and the types of people you come across. If stuff was made fun of, it was tongue-in-cheek, and there was a lot that was actually spot-on about NYC. But V's Los Santos felt like the people who came up with it hated LA in real life, or at least never spent much time there (they're all more familiar with New York because it's where they actually live, and probably what they prefer to LA).

It clearly has. Almost half the games they made takes place in NY.

Tbh this is probably more of a big city view of things rather than a New York view specifically

Wasn't their end goal as younger Housers to open up an office in NYC?  I'd say NY influenced R* even before they set up shop there.

I think NYC has a lot less creative influence than it seems. Although the games are written in America, they're still written by Brits, and most of the creative grunt-work is done in Scotland.
