Rodayna of Planet GTA explores the potential of a GTA title set in New Orleans.
Horrible state, horrible city. I'd enjoy a virtual crime spree through there.
why do you hate nola?
Mardi Gras rampage anyone ?
Looks like we have some Colts fans on this site. Too bad!
Last time they did a city with a huge ethnic population, It was the best GTA of the series (San Andreas). Sounds good to me. and to think i people used to argue with me about which is the better game GTA:SA or Saints Row 1 lol.
It's pretty obvious to anyone who's played some of The Ballad of Gay Tony that the next GTA is probably gonna be in London. It hints at trouble in London often. So, no. I doubt that.
Bewb city during Mardi Gras. Though there are a line of cops right under the porches. It's funny that those girls can show their bewbs but if they show their c***s cops arrest them.
I was hoping for something more like Detroit in the winter time. Lots of crime, snow, dirt, and Arabs.
this is just sick of someone to say otherwise. i think gta shouldent base a game on new orleans because its going through alot of trauma right now, i believe las vegas or new york would suit it better.
Hurricane Katrina was 4.5 years ago get over it
facepalm really we just had a game in new york
Im from New Orleans and I'm tired of hearing about Katrina, I agree get over it.
trauma? they just won the super bowl a few weeks ago
Either ATL or Las Vegas would be good. Even though I was born in NYC, I'm tired seeing it allways on the forefront of GTA games (even movies for the matter) If it's in ATL, then the dude should be black. If in Sin City, Native American would be something fresh, that or a Hispanic protagonist.
Does it really matter what the guys race is? No wonder racism will never end. People like you keep bringing it up.
The Main character is clearly going to be Drew Brees.
"No wonder racism will never end. People like you keep bringing it up." Right back at ya, he didn't say anything racist and if you think its offensive to talk about Native Americans, Hispanics, Blacks etc your overly sensitive and only contributing to separation. There is diversity and there's no problem in bringing that up.
Pretty sure that people like you that use the racism card out of something totally not racist at all is that does not let it end. It's obvious that race is important in GTA games in order to maintain a suitable and new/fresh story. Just as important as the location. Don't be so sensitive. I'm Puertorican, I've heard/seen the ignorance of people enough in my life living in NYC towards us Hispanics and blacks to not make me care anymore.
Maybe something outside the US would be interesting.
Yeah, I'm tired of American cities for GTA. I want one somewhere in Asia, or maybe even just a new one in London.
to see GTA in London.
But I'm bias since I live here :) I'd love to see GTA in New Orleans, but I really want them to go back to San Andreas.
Oh hell no, not London! I can't be arsed calling Roman to drink tea and eat crumpets. And imagine the chaos for gamers who are forced to drive on the left side of the road lol XD
Hong Kong, Tokyo, Dubai, Rome would all be good.
I think this is a damned good idea!! It'd be something that R* hasn't done yet, and it could be very good.
The cities should be kept fictional. It would be disrespect to use a real city. And c'mon, New Orleans?
if they make a san andreas remake ill it will easily best any other gta out even 4 but if they were to make a new city it should be like idk its hard Miami new york and California were so good its hard to think of a new one that can compete
how about this this you start in VC than 2nd part of game takes you in SA and you can travle back and forth anytime no real cities please i live in new orleans what they gonna do make GTA drug dealers lol and how to kill people on streets and rob bus drivers and kill people for no reason i want gaming to be fun NOLA is not fun maybe make GTA mardi gras or saints super bowl parade
GTA V 's trailer the engine is done after GTA4 now next gta will be here in 2011 either go with a new city of VC and SA together would be awsome make it fun like jetpacks and stuff not real crap gaming is suppose to be about fun
Yea man let it be a new city, like Boston Massachusetts :P
hmmm I thought of something.do you think its a good idea for the next GTA game to be based on a city from outside the US? you know cities from russia,brasil,colombia,china,j apan,etc... or at least the guy can travel to 3 cities from different countries.I think this might be interesting.I know some of you prefer it to be another city in the US but people outside the US play GTA because it's a great game and they don't care if it's based on an american city.hey some even don't know if this city is NY or San Fransisco!I don't know about you but I like this idea for a change ;) Edit: oops someone already thought of the same thing.guess there are others who feel the same way ;)
there is too many black people in new orlean and they will all cry like they did in Resident Evil 5 because it was set in africa.
you were trying to be witty and sarcastic with your bad grammar and racism. Clearly you are not that stupid. clearly..
Australia for sure.......................... ............................... ..............................
Maybe they should do it in a rural setting like in the 30's or 40's. Can we say moonshine run!!!
nah thats wat mafia 2 is for
and customization, it's an automatic buy from me.
I do agree that San Andreas was the best. But that's just my opinion.
Customisation is the thing I thought we'd see more of in GTA after SA as that's one of the things people loved so much about it so I was pretty baffled as to why there was so little customisation in GTA4.
I'd like to see it in Hawaii personally. That way they'd have to bring back planes and helicopters and maybe even the jet pack!
GTA Hawaii man. Beaches, volcanoes, seaplanes, jetskis, scubadiving, sharks, hot chicks, crime, special guest appearance by Dog the Bounty Hunter. EDIT ABOVE ARRGH Why did I take 20 minutes to type that. Stupid work.
There's only really 2 choices... Hong Kong or Japan
no thanks. id like Australia for no particular reason. just cant think of a new city id like. sort of would actually like an italian mafia based GTA. like liberty city stories. maybe Jersey or Chicago. i have no clue for a new city.
A more elaborate Las Vegas would be sweet
I want it to take place in Houston,TX since they done a game based on the biggest cities in the U.S. Or maybe a city from Texas would be cool too.
i dunno about you guys, but with all the open world city games we've already had, and all the excellent ones about to come out, red dead, l.a. noire, etc. its about time someone recreates the fifth element like city in the future, with the huge skyscrapers and layers of floating traffic. imagine this. you're flying around in your car and take a nose dive down through all the layers of traffic as cops are hot on your tail as they're being taken out by oncoming traffic and neon signs (ala judge dredd) then you're racing through the depths of the city reminiscent of blade runner with all the crazy bars and strip joints, then you rear back up towards the sky with the cops still on your tail, then as your car is smoking and about to explode you bail out only to free fall and land in the back of someone else's car (ala fifth element) and then proceed to jack the car throwing the person out of the car sending them hurling towards the bottom of the city. meanwhile the car you dove out off is now crashing down creating insane crashes with traffic and all sorts of [email protected]#$ is going on. aside from that sounding like amazing gameplay to me, it's territory that hasn't been explored with the sandbox gta gameplay style. lets face it, the gangster/gang member has been done, we had driver parrallel lines in the 70's, we had vice in the 80's, we had III set in 90's/2000 and IV in current times. not to mention red dead thats coming out (which looks amazing) l.a. noire in the 40's, and mafia 1 and 2 in the 40's-50's. (there was red faction guerrilla on mars too) just think of the fifth element idea on the euphoria/rage engine physics from gtaIV and tell me that doesn't sound awesome. theres even hierarchy within that kind of futuristic city (bottom levels is where you start out, doing low missions, then you get tot he middle levels of the city (main business and metropolitan area, then the top levels are where all the serious boss' hang out and overlook their city. don't get me wrong i love the social commentary in the sandbox games that are set in today, but ever since the fifth element came out and i played gta3 i've thought this would be an awesome game, and now developers could easily do it. you tube the fifth element car chase scene if you don't think this would be a great idea
also, i forgot to mention, the new true crime is being set in hong kong, and the yakuza games already have that department taken care of as far as story goes. and getaway is the game i'd want handling london if there were to be a london game
But think about it. Rockstar already have alot of assets available on their Racing game, Midnight Club LA. It uses the same engine as GTA4. I think it will be LA.
I think it should be in brazil, because they got nice beaches, girls, criminality in Brazil is crazy! Imagine your character being from the favelas and as a kid he would always do bad stuff, kill people, deal and rob. I would like R* to tell the story of the character better. What do you guys think? P.S. Im not Brazilian so im not being biased.
i can imagine it being like city of god i suggest anyone watch it if they dont no what im talking about
actually gta should move out of us.
i still think it should stay in the us every story is about how one can go from nothing to something achieving the american dream and doing what ever it takes to achieve it
Does anyone actually like that city except its residents? Good for a weekend, that's about it. There is a reason the government responded slowly to Katrina, its called "cleansing".
I agree with Treeson47. The only better/equal GTA than a futuristic Fifth/Element, Judge Dredd style metropolis with flying cars, vertical traffic and Euphoria 2.0 Would be a true next gen sequel to Vice City. And its been said already but Yakuza takes care of Japan and The Getaway takes care of London. The next GTA has to either stay in the U.S. or go Futuristic. There can be no other locations. Brazil would be a joke, so would New Orleans. Suggestions like these are just from people who live in these cities and happen to post on N4G.
Specially if they let you purchase a casino in it.
I say this to R* here is some locations that should be the next GTA. Japan, U.K., Italy, Chicago, Texas, Mexico. Just to name a few.
