Should GTA VI incorporate the Coronavirus?

Recommended Posts

Zidane500

Should GTA VI incorporate the Coronavirus in some way, shape or form? Maybe the character can get ill with a virus and have to go to hospital to get cured, or run to the mall to buy toilet paper, food supplies etc. The whole city can get taken over by the virus and have to deal with it for a certain time

 Coronavirus will be some old news when Grand Theft Auto VI gets released.

 

Nobody will care.

No, honestly it sounds stupid, even the idea itself of a virus in a videogame like GTA would never work.

Spoiler

Well, Arthur does get TB in RDR2 so why not?

Absolutely not. Not only because of how ridiculous it would be to panic-buy toilet paper, but GTA protagonists are healthy individuals who won't need to go to hospital even if they got it. It also wouldn't add anything to any well-written decent story that would also fit into the GTA formula. Coronavirus will probably be over by 2021 in my opinion unless things develop for the worse.

Arthur getting TB was central to the redemption plot. Getting a fatal disease would remind him of his own mortality, and depending on the player's choice they could make him a more honourable man. GTA protagonists don't need this story arc because that's not what the games are about. Not to mention, Coronavirus isn't as deadly as Tuberculosis, most especially not to healthy GTA protagonists.

This is GTA, a crime-oriented game, not f*cking Plague. Inc

Yes, the streets will be totally empty, you'll recieve a 6-star wanted level for leaving your safehouse and instantly die when you enter a store.

Still Coronavirus isn't that bad of a virus, It would feel doll to put it in a game, I have seen some better stuff, such as The Last of Us, for example

Maybe they could reference it, but it would be dumb if it's a big part of the game.

Coronavirus will be done when the game release, and yes realism is good in video game, but maybe not too much either

I don't think it should be a gameplay element but if the game takes place in present day I think it's got to at least be referenced. The tricky part is that we don't really know what the fallout of all of this is going to look like.

Just mention it in the news and that's all. Adding coronavirus as a gameplay mechanic would be just... annyoing.

tuberculosis ruined RDR for me so having another game where we have to deal with a virus would be horrible. once this sh*t with corona is over I dont even wanna hear that word ever again.

Sorry for being a nit-picky pain in the backside, but tuberculosis is not a virus. It's a bacterial infection. In all other aspects though, it was least relevant to the story in setting of Arthur's character arc. It's also deadlier as far as we know. But Coronavirus is just unnecessary in the case of GTA because it would be of no relevance to a decent story about a criminal rising up through the underworld. Unless Rockstar makes you work for a corrupt pharmacist who wants you to hijack a truck carrying vaccines against it. But I doubt that'll happen.

I know. I didnt mean to say tuberculosis is a virus. my point was I dont want my character being sick in the game.

Maybe we could partake in toilet paper deals that go wrong instead of drug deals.

No man, this is a terrible idea. Videogames are supposed to be fun. Everybody's stressed out with this corona thing and you want to incorporate it in the next GTA? Not gonna work.

GTA V was way ahead of it's time. If you carefully notice, about a quarter of the NPCs are walking around and occasionally cough. 

Online characters don't live long enough to get sick.

I doubt R* would include it to the point where people don't go outside and whatnot, but the economic/unemployment fallout could be incorporated or like in GTA IV with the paranoia surrounding terrorism and the GFC which was relevant for the time.

 

Depending when GTA VI's set if it's modern day it would a hard event to ignore since it's been dubbed as one of the most significant global events since WWII and the Great Depression.

I agree. I've been following this crisis since the first week of January when it was mostly occurring in Wuhan, China. (The outbreak began before January). I find it disturbing that there are still too many people who are unaware of the seriousness of this pandemic. And the economic/unemployment fallout would still be felt next year. Also, there's really no guarantee that the pandemic would be over by next year. There's a lot that we don't know about this virus. Even if the pandemic ends by next year, our way of life would remain changed for an unknown period of time.

 

 

 

 

If everyone wants to forget about this pandemic, then the game should be set in the past.
