What setting do you think the game will have?
 
Honestly I hope it's set in the 1920's/1930's Chicago.
Ultimate time for crooks.

I don't really want anything pre-1970. Horrible cars tbh.



I want a modern game set either in London or Chicago.

So's yer face.

The horrible cars are all post-1970 :lynk:

But I'm thinking it'll probably be Carcer city. They gave us the clues just like they had with San Andreas.

As for time frame, I'm hoping for modern times, just because we've already had the 80's, 90's, and 00's in a GTA, and Driver Parallel Lines tried the 1970's and failed spectacularly. And I can't really see anything 1960's or earlier accomplishing much.

Sorry, I meant pre-WWII :P Didn't think of all the muscle cars.

I'd disagree with you there too if it wasn't talking about a GTA game.

I think the 50's and 60's would be decent vehicle-wise for a GTA game, but not the 30's and 40's. I love cars from like 1908-on, but it just wouldn't work for GTA.

MODERN DAY.

GTA IMO would suck anytime before the 80's, but for GTA IV, I'm really hoping for 2007 or some modern year.

The current theme of the site keeps me thinking of the black & white era.

Exactly what i was thinking as well...

Asif 03-03-2007 12:39 PM

Though I cant say I wish to play in that time. :(

Yeah, having the Mafia La Noire style is ok, but just not back in that era, every era is covered from the 80's till now, so what have R* got in store for us, just have to wait...:(

Slim Trashman 03-03-2007 12:52 PM

I really think it's going to be modern day. I really hope it will. 1980-2000 is covered, anything before that would just be incredibly not fun for GTA. By the way, just because the IV is "black and white" doesn't mean it will be back in the like 40's, notice it's not just black and white, but shiny and shiz. IMO, that hints towards modern day.

Modern day. If GTA was set pre 1950 era i'd skip the game all together

nOs jOn 03-03-2007 01:22 PM

I am hoping 90's, 80's would be cool too... but more these eras from a musical standpoint..

50's would work, not for music, but for greaser gangs an shit... its a good area to work from.

For a place setting, I highly doubt it will be GTA: Chicago, since GTA3 and all the press Rockstar get, they will not name their game after a major city. It would suck to be sued by the city of Chicago.

I also doubt it would be GTA: Carcer City, Manhunt an GTA just Acknowledge each other in the games cause its all Rockstar fam, thats all.

I would like to see ViceCity/SanAndreas/Liberty plus some extra citys all together... as long as there are definite time changes to the city's, I see no problem re-using them... I think re-using past GTA city's adds solidarity to the series.

peace

Want: Modern day Chicago-like city
Expect: Modern day London
Long shot: Remake of 1969 London.

Cutts 03-03-2007 02:00 PM

Dont want: Remake of 1969 London
That would so suck. How about 1970s San Diego? Anyone ever seen Anchorman?
