I wouldn't want it any earlier than the 80s either, I prefer the modern day GTAs.

A tropical location sounds cool, I was thinking an island (or group of islands) kind of like a cross between Miami and Hawaii would be pretty fun, a nice big city, sunshine, and beaches, then mountain passes, and dirt tracks up in the hills.

Planes are always fun, especially on bigger maps, I never thought the driving in IV was that bad but being able to drift would be nice.

I would love more fluid on foot movements, climbing, jumping and running never really felt quite right, you could never really have much of a foot chase, also, the characters don't run fast enough for long enough, they can only run about 1 block before the slow to a jog, at which point you just get shot, perhaps a sprint which doesn't last long is fine, but we need to be able to go faster than a jog for longer, jogging parkour would be silly.

You're probably right. But what are your thoughts about Carcer City (Philadephia)? Is it possible that they'll make a good blend of DC and Philadelphia or something?

interesting post JStarr31... i didn't know about that history program. rockstar usually doesn't just throw out names of cities like that (Capital City) without having an intention of setting a game there.

The fact that the V is the same as on a $5 bill could represent simply that:
  • The game, as always uses dollars, and it looked cool.
  • Money now plays a much more important roll in the game.
  • The story is based around a counterfeit money outfit
  • The story is based around a money laundering business
  • and more

The Capital City thing could of just been a random line thought up buy whoever was writing the TV shows, a whole array of other places are mentioned in IV.

I'm not saying you're wrong, it may well be set in D.C. I just think you're being overly confident about something that might not be as definitive as you've made it look.

Come Tuesday, if it is set in DC, then well done, you'll be receiving some positive rep from me.

JStarr31,

Reading your post, you're pretty much telling us that you know its gonna be set in D.C. because you are American. There are Americans on this board you know....

Anyways, any SOLID evidence we have is the casting call R* put out a while back for a game codenamed "Frozen" which included mostly characters from the Los Angeles, San Francisco areas. It also includes one character that is pretty famous in the GTA universe, especially in San Andreas, James Pedeaston.

The V logo is from the dollar sign possibly because there is an actual $5 bill. Also, money might play a much bigger role since a lot of people complained that you couldn't do much with money in GTA IV. I honestly don't know how the V would stand for Vegas as someone here mentioned, why not just put Vegas? Also, R* never has not used any real cities in GTA except London, so I doubt they will do it now.

Also, I think after the last-gen GTAs, R* has no problems just throwing out a bunch of references to other cities in GTA IV. During GTA 3/ Vice city times, R* purchased a bunch of domains to throw the fans off, GTA Bogota, GTA Tokyo, etc. Just because they make references to other cities doesn't mean the game will take place there.

This is always my favorite part of this shit. -NO THE GAME IS GONNA BE HERE. -NO HERE. -NO HERE. All this speculation.

Oh GTAG, you make me feel young(er) again.

Though the presentation of the V obviously symbolizes something. What though? Tune in next week for the next episode of Drag- the GTA V trailer.

Oh for fuck's sake. The V just means the number 5. That is all.

Yeah, the V doesn't stand for anything. It's roman numeral for the number Five.

Just how IV didn't mean "Grand Theft Auto: Eye (I) Vee (V)" and you played a medical doctor on the edge.

even though, you DID get a medical suit in one mission

Patrucci,

Someone in here said the V stands for Vegas. I am aware of Las Venturas, wouldn't it be LV?

p.s. You quoted me wrong.
