They could even take some inspiration from london 69, like the mission where you are in the van and have to drop off EXPLOSIVE blow up doll's haha.. Which ironicly you could be driving a THREE wheeler van.. For those that don't know it has to be a three wheeled van because its a refference to one of, if not THE greatest british comedy of all time.

But alas, that's why gta london will never be.. Because countrie's like the state's are the industrie's biggest market, and it has to appeal to their audiences.. But at the end of the day that's all down to money, they will never release gta london because they wanna apeal to a "bigger audience" (that wasn't another obesity joke)

Why shouldn't they just say "fuck it" ..??

Make the game even if it doesnt appeal to everybody.. R* are located ALL around the world, including the UK.. The psp gta game's was done by Rockstar LEEDS. I live near leeds bro.. gta is known for its zany humour, they could easily make a modern gta london with all the great things gta is already famous. Look at red dead that was a master peice, wild wild west baby now do london.. GTA should honour its roots, fuck the money!

For further discussion value, I'll go on to say that yeah, i would also say that us guys on the PC have been given the finger a little bit. As of late we've been subject to later - than desired releases that were just that bit too buggy or not quite optimised well enough.


Another valid reason why london should never be?

the term grand theft may be a term used by cop's in the U.S.. But it could be a throw back, ok GTA IV imo was good.. But in comparison to previous game's in the series? Not a chance, but isnt london 69 just an add on for gta 2? A gta game based in the UK is a good idea, don't you think it would be fun to go shoot some limey bastards? then you could drop off at the chip shop and get some fish 'n chips!

When I catch the bus home from work every day, I always see someone driving in an NYPD police car, perfectly legal i guess since its obvoiusly not a real police officer lmao.. But I love seeing it, reminds me of GTA <3 That's why I think gta london would be good, let our american cousin's drive around london blowin shit up lmfao

Either way, we have no idea what rockstar have planned..

I'm not sure if you meant to double post, but I suspect you made a post, lost it to some cruel fate and then posted again.. but they both posted? I have no idea but I've merged the 2. (That's what the edit note's for :))

I'm all over the idea of having throwbacks to missions from the top-down era. I think it would be a fantastic service to the fans who grew up with the series. And the writing was as good then as it is now, so they'd still have all the irreverence to keep the newer generation audience engaged.

I think Rockstar probably run the risk of being branded as copycats should they decide to envision London though, Given the release of 'The Getaway' (the fact that it was pretty terrible aside), and that's not something I'd necessarily like to besmirch my company's good image with should I be in the situation. They're clearly not afraid to 'go there' with it - I mean, they had Maccer wanking over Margaret Thatcher... And I think you have a solid point in that mass appeal will keep them glued to an American setting.

I can't even remember most of the mission's on top down gta but I vividly remember the blow up doll's one just because of the randomness, i liked using a phone box on GTA IV because it seemed like a nice sutble throw back to the old day's

At the same time though they could be branded as unoriginal or worse if they remake VC or SA and completley botch it up.. I would love a new SA, but at the same time.. How can you make SA any better? If it aint broke, don't fix it.

I wouldnt want london to be ultra realistic either, if R* do the same with GTA V as they have done with IV then that will be the end for GTA! Beside's, R* have done everything in the U.S. Be a detective in Los Angeles, play cow boy's and indian's in the wild west, blow people up and have cop chase's in new york.. Which is another thing, way too many game's are based in NY.. NY is nice 'n all, especially on crysis 2, but its getting old now lol

Tbh san andreas look's like the biggest possibility, there's even a thing in gta IV that say's johnsons meat or something like that anyway.. And you know what R* are like with teasing us beloved fan's.. Remember when people thought bigfoot was in san an? and rockstar WANTED people to believe it.. Then they make red dead redemption, then they make undead nightmare.. With a mission where you have to kill bigfoot, for which you get an achievement called 'Six years in the making' which is a refference to San Andreas

Fun Fact - In the french version of undead nightmare this achievement is named "Plus la peine de chercher, CJ"..In English - "No need to seek it anymore, CJ"

edit, i just looked up some maylay.. Heh, listened to his song dedicated to SA ^.^ I've got to get up for work in 2 and a half fuckin hours.. But I might as well just have another beer, another spliff.. And play san an! I can't wait to show my bestest SA buddy these song's by maylay, as i don't think he realised CJ acctually rapped either heheh

btw, do people in this community all have game's together on SA? Do you all use microphone's to communicate? I've had my pc for quite a few month's now and still aint really gave MTA a chance

Not really. I've spoken with a group of the mods before on voip once, but that's about it, we've also tried to arrange to meet up for a beer somewhere but it didn't work out given everyone's schedules not really working together. We also did have an MTA server for a brief period 9after 2.0 was released) but we had issues with hosting arrangements and so on if I remember correctly. It was a hell of a lot of fun, actually, even if 90% of staff activity was having to rocketlaunch griefers and stuff.

If you don't like it then keep playing GTA SA. Not everybody is stuck in the past like you.

i7, isnt that a bit much? I doubt the next GTA game will need that much of a processor :S

Obama play's GTA?

They could put obama in the next gta game.. Maybe you could even PLAY as obama.

I always used to get obama mixed up with osama.. obama, surley he's a terrorist undercover?

The next GTA will be set in a completely remade, modern day Los Santos. It has been confirmed in the official GTA V trailer released by Rockstar. So technically, if the State of San Andreas still exists in the GTA V Era, GTA V WILL be set in San Andreas, although I highly doubt that it will share the same storyline and/or timeline with GTA San Andreas. In fact, I think GTA V will be a reboot of the series.
