Anyone disappointed that Staples Center wasn't in the game.

One of the most iconic places in Downtown LA. I know they included the Forum with the Maze Bank Arena. The Forum also has a lot of history but Staples Center has been the main attraction for entertainment in LA since it opened in 1999 (Alright I may be exaggerating a bit here because there's a ton of stuff to do in LA but you get the point).  When you think of Modern Day LA Staples Center is one of the things that come to mind. I know that they hardly used The Forum at all in the story aside from that Fame or Shame mission so It doesn't really matter at all.

Not as familiar with American culture as most here so i wasn't really disappointed but yeah it would have been a nice attraction and added some character to LS, even if they didnt use it in a mission they could have used it as part of the Vinewood tour , it would have given a sense of lore to the city. iirc R* also didn't add Madison Square Garden in GTA IV so they seem to have an aversion for these arenas for some reason

They did include Staples center in Midnight Club LA but renamed it to Sports Center.

Then I guess it's another one of those R* logic cases, like removing Union/Unity Station and Long Beach in V when they were present in San Andreas

Disappointed that a lot of things weren't in LS County, let alone southern San Andreas.

They could have included all of LA Live as well.

Well, Midnight Club LA was supposed to be based off Los Angeles so of course they included it. They probably couldn't get the real name because it's a licensing nightmare and that costs money for R*. There's the Maze Bank Arena in GTAV if you care about stadiums.

and I'm disappointed that Long Beach, Chinatown, Torrance, and West Covina wasn't in the game either.

Yeah I mentioned the Maze Bank Arena which is based on the real life Forum. The problem is that The Forum isnt used much irl. Staples Center is the premier location in LA.

I'm disappointed half the f*cking city wasn't included. Any rendition of Los Angeles that takes 2 minutes to drive across in-game is not a rendition of Los Angeles. Then again all the buildings are unenterable cardboard boxes with PS1 textures slapped on them so who really gives a toss anyway.

It is that just called the The Maze Bank Area home of the LS Panic. Just like all other landmarks in GTA V have different names then they're real counter parts.

That is not the Staples Center. That is the Forum.

Not really. To me, a sports stadium is a sports stadium. The Maze arena could easily fill the role the staples center filled.

 

But then again, I’m so mad that Los Santos doesn’t have a remake of LA’s union station I started foaming at the mouth and my parents had to pick me up from school after I bit the teacher so I guess sh*t like this just boils down to peoples interest in whatever was omitted honestly and whether or not the devs thought people would care enough if it was or wasn’t in the game
