Serious Guess: GTA London

Or, like, GTA Mod City or some fake name vaguely reminiscient of where it is. I still really wanna see GTA Hong Kong though.

it wouldn't be that great unless the hero was some kind of professional parkour dude a la mirror's edge - streets are fucking narrow here

Weren't the other things people were buzzing about "Motor City" and "Sin City" for the new ones? Just put us back in San Andreas, I say

GTA Vice City 2?

anyway, they'd better put some bloody gameplay back into it. playing san andreas lately and it's shocking how much better it still is than IV.

gotta say i disagree, ste... just finished gay tony, now going back to play though lost & damned, and am regularly hugely impressed by what this game does, and how well it works [ymmv of course]

Touch! Generations (stevie), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 14:30 (twelve years ago) link

gay tony had much better missions i must admit, but i'd already gotten bored of the city by this time.

san andreas is still stupid fun.

and bring back rampages!

bracken free ditch (Ste), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 14:40 (twelve years ago) link

i've got SA (indeed all the 3d GTAs) on 360 as i loved them so much BITD but must admit i can't play em for long now, for fear of ruining their nostalgic glow.

and bring back rampages!

oh yes for shit sure definitely

hmm can't find the thread where i talked about my fanboy wish:

chicago, but two versions: in the 20s and today, and you play back and forth between a dude and his grandfather

if the grandfather dies, is the save file of the dude automatically erased? xp

noted schloar (dyao), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:22 (twelve years ago) link

or do you get a chance to travel back in time and try to prevent the death of your grandfather

would you get a chance to boff your grandmother too, before your grandfather gets the chance to

noted schloar (dyao), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:22 (twelve years ago) link

yes?

noted schloar (dyao), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:23 (twelve years ago) link

Was "Lost Heaven" in Mafia based on an actual city? Great game but the cars were mostly shit - don't think I'd fancy a 1920s GTA were it took 10 minutes to get up every steep hill.

fall down with a bang (onimo), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:27 (twelve years ago) link

nm I looked it up

The game is set in the fictional American city of 'Lost Heaven' (loosely based on New York City, Chicago, and parts of New Jersey and Boston of the same time period).

fall down with a bang (onimo), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:28 (twelve years ago) link

ooh there's a Mafia II out this year - hopefully the console versions won't tank this time

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_II

The game will be set from 1945 to 1955 in Empire Bay (originally called Empire City earlier in the game's development), a fictional city based on San Francisco and New York City, with influences from Chicago and Detroit.

fall down with a bang (onimo), Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:32 (twelve years ago) link

first mafia was a big disappointment.

goole, Wednesday, 3 March 2010 15:37 (twelve years ago) link

I really enjoyed it, apart from the long driving between missions thing where you had to drive like a Sunday afternoon grandad. I played the PC version - I think a lot was cut for the console ports.

I've often thought a chicago prohibition era GTA was inevitable

i am under no illusions that my opinions are even that interesting to me (dan m), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 01:27 (twelve years ago) link

now we know. i still think dubai could have been pretty cool

sonderangerbot, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 01:59 (twelve years ago) link

I think I said on another thread that a Godfather II-type narrative for a GTA game would be really cool too; same city, two eras, with one's era's action impacting on another's.

antexit, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 02:22 (twelve years ago) link

first mafia was awesome, can't wait for the sequel but hope it isn't dogshit like the godfather sequel.

onimo, you might like saboteur. playing it heavily at the moment - very similar to mafia & gta. set in ww2 fighting nazis, missions open world etc. great use of colour and atmosphere but seriously awful voice acting (up there with orson welles in the alltime worst irish accents)

six years pass...

So I'm currently replaying Vice City, this time on PC. This game is fun, and I really enjoy the side stuff I don't care what people say.

Gripe with the pc version though is that the computer traffic vanishes horribly if you turn and look away. It did this from time to time on the ps2 as well but it's seriously bad on pc.

Something occurred to me, regarding exploring and looking around for secret missions/items, this game is a perfect size!
GTA5 is too big, and anything of any use is located miles away from anywhere. I got seriously bored hunting around for paper scraps, ufo pieces, monkey mozaics, and peyote plants. Everything in VC feels like a walkable (runnable?) distance away too.

Maybe I'm just getting old.

I can't imagine Rockstar would even consider making another gta based on a smaller map and more condensed with activity though. Perhaps somebody else could.

"Stop researching my life" (Ste), Friday, 12 August 2016 14:40 (five years ago) link

I agree. There's a charm to the smaller maps of the old games that's missing from 4 and 5. I've been playing those later games forever and still have little sense of the geography.

calstars, Friday, 12 August 2016 14:48 (five years ago) link

Loved VC. Sad that the Xbox version doesn't quite work on XBOX360 - buttons don't seem to match too great, or it runs too quickly, or I am just nowhere near as good at videogames as I was when it came out.

Yeah, like, the ability to swim in later games is cool and all until someone explodes your plane over the ocean and you have to spend ten minutes swimming back to shore.

Bottomless Brunch & Topless Tapas (Old Lunch), Friday, 12 August 2016 16:27 (five years ago) link

I just recently started replaying VC, too, to see if there's any cool shit after the RC copter mission where I gave up before.

Bottomless Brunch & Topless Tapas (Old Lunch), Friday, 12 August 2016 16:28 (five years ago) link

I'm finding it a lot easier on pc, now I have the control pad fixed, than ps2 (which I also recently attempted).

This could be down to the fact my ps2 left analogue stick seems to have ultra-high sensitivity.

And I know it's tiresome to hear this but good god the radio stations are amazing.

"Stop researching my life" (Ste), Friday, 12 August 2016 16:34 (five years ago) link

For instance I nailed all of those RC missions on PC. Compared to my recent attempt on ps2 where I couldn't get anywhere.

"Stop researching my life" (Ste), Friday, 12 August 2016 16:35 (five years ago) link

Having said that I must have attempted 'Messing with the man' about 30 times on the pc before I got it. Could have sworn I beat this by getting up on the opposite roof and just shooting everything with a rocket laucher. But on PC nothing was spawning from that distance.

"Stop researching my life" (Ste), Friday, 12 August 2016 16:38 (five years ago) link

And I know it's tiresome to hear this but good god the radio stations are amazing.

def not tiresome - murdering someone as john waite's missing you played on the stereo was one of my greatest gaming experiences

Agreed. For me the song of choice was "automatic" by the Pointer Sisters

calstars, Friday, 12 August 2016 21:04 (five years ago) link
