Here's another rumor. GTA 5 may feature a setting around the turn of the century (1898 - 1903). Why? Because the logo is looking like a five dollar bill.
I hope not. GTA should always have a modern setting
So many rumors......
Because people refuse to STFU and wait... some douche says "I heard from a friend's cousin's next door neighbor who works at Rockstar that there will be _____ in GTAV". This happens every time there is an announcement... it gets old.
i blame it partly on the devs for not sharing any details
Or if they are gonna 'time travel', it should be a future setting instead of the past. But I agree, they should keep it modern.
Future GTA to me sounds more appealing than another periodic... But they wouldn't give it the GTA title.. It has to be current....
Well for me it does not have to be modern as in 2011, but 80s and up if fine for me.
It's a load of balls, the clue is in the name of the game Grand Theft AUTO! At the turn of the century there were very very very few cars around and those were rubbish. This is the most stupid rumour I have heard yet lol.
Really??? So the 80s setting of Vice City was "modern."
Well yeah, "modern" doesn't mean actual, current or present.
oohhh no it fucking shouldnt. If your definition of modern is post 2000 then you can shove that right back up your ass. 70s, 80s, 90s or bust. Anything later is shit unless it's so far into the future that we don't even have a mental concept of it. I highly doubt that is the case though.
My definition of modern is anything from the 70s to now.
that would be total destruction of gta franchise! 0,1% that gta going backwards in time
RDR was turn of the century. It would be pointless.
GTB??? Grand Theft Buggy? How many auto thefts in that time period you think? p.s. screw Google translate links!!!!!!!
grand theft horse ???
no its grand theft automobile
Absolutely not. Fake.
Haha, the writer wasted their time with this.
Red Dead was an awesome game but for me it lacked a busy world. Town's were damn near empty, not many NPC's or other attractions. A busier game world will make a turn of the century setting that much more enjoyable. That said i have to agree with most of u guys that a modern LA setting would do just great. I just hope the world is filled with random crazy activities and side missions like San Andreas.
I actually missed to also be able to drive in a car in that game! :p but yeah it was a bit too rural for my liking.
I loved GTA 4. Yes it was a different experience compared to SA and VC but R* created the most detailed and realistic city yet seen in a game. It was great to become immersed in. With TLAD and Gay Tony R* were on the right track of adding the activities that GTA fans had come to expect. They did this without compromising what they had achieved in 4. They then with RDR created a detailed depiction of the hard country of a rapidly developing United States. It would be great to see them combine these aspects. It also makes sense. I can't agree with having a map the size of Just Cause. I feel that would be in detriment to the game. However i'd love to see one large city surrounded by countryside and dotted with say 3 or 4 towns. I'd like to see twisting mountain roads set against the backdrop of some of Americas gorgeous national parks. I'd like to be able to drive to the top put snowchains on my car and have to brake hard to avoid hitting a moose. Once i'm there, I want to jump a scrambler of the top and parachute of and land on a hovercraft. From there take it for a wild ride through an everglades type area avoiding alligators and end up robbing a convenience store at gunpoint in a back country American town. And I don't think hovercrafts were invented in 1899.
that would be boring in my opinion
I highly doubt they would go back in time that far for GTA V. It wouldn't make sense and defintely would be appealing. It says here http://gtav.com that the game would be in Los Angeles. We need something contemporary. Maybe the mexican gang being in the game or something lol.
Oh crap, I hope they havent been influenced by Boardwalk Empire or something, I hate that era.
Would this not basically be Red Dead Redemption then?
Noo wtf?? we don want another red dead!!
are you crazy! everybody wants a new red dead! red dead revolver, red dead redemption, red dead revenge!!
Why do so many people want another modern era GTA? The modern era is shit, get it through your heads. Is it the vehicles and weapons? Is that why you want another post 2000 GTA? It can't be for the music, culture or fashion of today. I really hope not anyway. How about the 1970s? Rockstar has yet to take a stab at that Decade for GTA. Why must it be a sharp decline into the distant past or another mirror of the shitty world we live in today? There are PLENTY of OPTIONS.
