What kind of music do you use for your custom radios?

For me, I'd like to put period-accurate music. That means I put 1992 music and prior in San Andreas, mid-1980's music in Vice City and Stories, 2008 and prior song in GTA IV and 2000s-2010s songs in V. Not only that, but also trying to fit with the theme of the games and inspired by the existing radio stations.

Well, I never use the custom radios in III, VC and SA and just stick to the game's lore. But I recently had the idea of using them as a way to restore cut songs into the games.

GTA 3 and GTA VC radio stations are literally just mp3 files that can be edited in Audacity or replaced altogether.

 

GTA SA is much tricky to edit though there's a mod now that makes this process a hell of a lot easier.

 

As to the topic at hand, I generally create period accurate playlists as well. It feels awkward to play dubstep in GTA SA (unless the game has been modded to "look modern").

 

My custom GTA 4 playlist is mostly just 2006-08 pop music lol. Blends very well with GTA 4 though.

That's why I had to pay attention what date a song was released in before I pick them.

I couldn't pick songs after 1986 in Vice City unless it's for VCFM in EFLC, songs from 2009 are fine only if it's for EFLC and I couldn't pick songs from today for GTA 5 unless it's for Online because Rockstar basically said "f*ck it, we're not stuck in 2013 anymore".

 

You'd be suprised to know one of the songs on my GTA 5 playlist is Shooting Stars by Bag Raiders, however. I actually put that song because it actually sounded like it'd fit well into Radio Mirror Park and it was from quite a long time ago before the song got popular.

Hah.

 

I'll still say this: driving around Algonquin while Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" played on Independence FM is something that came together way too well, lol. Those contemporaries songs really enhance the vibe.

 

At least GTA:O's story moves forward in time, which is one of the few things I like about it.
