GTA 4 Scenario Suggestions

Recommended Posts

There are already threads about which city / time age ppl want GTA 4 to be in, however the replies there are just shoutouts. To write a proposal here you should think through the idea, area and motivate why it would be especially cool to have GTA 4 there. (Not like: GTA4 should be in Seattle bcus im born there etc.)

An example for how a suggestion about GTA:SA could have looked:

GTA:SA is set in western USA, with LA, SF and LV as cities. The time period is early 90:s with LA as a low-tech city almost taken over by criminal, battling gangs. With SF as a high-tech city and LV as the luxyary, low-paced place all three cities will be unique. The story is about a former "gangster" returning to his old "homies" and "gangsta rappers" in LA to retake the city.

And then to my idea:

GTA:4 could be set in a map referenced to three areas in the world. Firstly the largest part is in China with Peking or Shanghai as major city. Here the player can start to build his reputation, and also have a base for properties (manufacturing stuff, growing drugs etc).

The second area could then be Japan and Tokyo inspired. Here the player can sell loads of stuff, cet incorporated with the Japanese mafia and just earn a hell of a lot of money.

In the third area the player could come either to Hawaii (semester place, beaches etc), or to North Corea (extremely militarized and dangerous zones). Or why not both?

The time could be set around the fall of the Soviet Union (1992) to create a very unstable atmosphere especially in China and North Korea.

Side notes:

I also would like to add Power plants and vehicle transport trucks and ferrys, among other things.

Id prefer to have Mexico City than Hawaii. Also it would be better if it was set further away from SA maybe present day.

well i have been a bit vague about my seattle idea but i do have a ton of ideas, even a bit of a story written (so i have alot of time on my hands). When I first came up with the seattle idea it was before SA came out so i wanted to have it based in the early 90's when grunge was exploding out of seattle and there could be an alternative rock station and stuff like that. But then they made San Andreas based in the early 90's so who knows if having two games set at the same time would be a good idea.....But regardless of the time setting my scenareo would be like a White sort of punk rock tweaker kid who finally gets clean and wants to start a real life but with his drug history and arrests no one will give him a real job so he turns to crime and heads east to liberty city to get in with a mob family. He gets hired but is sent right back home where his services will be more needed. And my map idea is far more than just seattle it's more the same type of thing as SA. It involves 3 of the bigger cities in Washington Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia. And in between are small white trash redneck biggot towns full of hillbillies to make fun of, and also vast forests and mountain ranges. Also there are so many hunting obsessed rednecks up here so i was thinking it would be a cool idea to introduce wildlife like deer and elk and stuff and also introduce as a weapon the Bow and Arrow and Crossbow. Shooting arrows through people would be amusing. As far as gangs go there is in real life a mob family in Tacoma called the sons of italy and in seattle there is an all female gang full of angry female supremecists. I forget what theyre called but the concept is hilarious to me. And Seattle involves all the things a gta big city should like a downtown, a financial district, and of course a chinatown. And another thing about seattle is that everyone is obsessed with coffee. Seattle is where starbucks origionated and if you ever go there you will notice that there is literally a starbucks every five feet. That could be used..you know how they have mocks of all these other real life businesses like the fast food places and Zip (the Gap). They could make one of starbucks and puth them all over the place. The state of washington is very green and has all kinds of terrain and climate variations and it would work im telling you. In my first post of this topic i was just asking a vague question i did not go into detail. But as a whole there is alot more to my idea than just simply bacause i was born there. anyway, theres a ton more ideas where this came from but this post is getting really long and you probably all think im an obsessed psycho by now so i'll go ahead and call it quits for the time being. Peace.

one additional thing that r* has shown to use a lot is well known land marks. especially in san andreas u have the golden gate, area 51, famous casinos, SF trams etc. what does seattle have?

space needle? Is that some sort of tower?

If you say "golden gate bridge" anybody would say SF

If you say "statue of liberty" anybody would say NYC

If you say "Hollywood" anybody would say LA

If you say "casino" anybody would say Vegas

If you say "Big Ben" anybody would say London

If you say "Eiffel Tower" anybody would say Paris

If you say "Kyoto Tower" anybody would say Japan (although its in Kyoto...)

I could not name one monument in Seattle, nor one claim to fame at all. Say Sydney to me, and i would be able to talk about the Opera House and Harbour Brigfe and stuff, although i've never even been close to it. I dont think Seattles famous enough. Do you live there or something?

you would be surprised how many people would know what youre talking about if you mentioned the space needle. Besides you didnt mantion any kind of ladmark in maimi which there isnt really but the Vice City game worked didnt it? Also, what about the cities gta has already made where they didnt even use the ladmarks that they could have. Like for example, do you actually see a statue of liberty in Liberty City?

That is correct, however miami itself is a landmark - miami beach. It wouldnt work in the above paragraphing (if i said miami beach...) so i left it out. As for statue of liberty in NYC, i didnt say that all GTA games were based around landmarks, but New York City was mentioned, anybody could say a lot of things, thats my point - its a famous and popular city. As for Seattle, no offence, but i cant think of anything to do with it. Maybe a US tourist attraction i'm not aware of, maybe it has filmstars, festivals, or music. I really couldnt tell you. I think a GTA game should be built around something a bit more memorable, like Lithuania...

space needle - looks a bit like vice's ATC tower, doesnt it :P

Well it's true that seattle is not as universally famous as New York. However it is no less famous than Miami, or say.. Chicago, Detriot, or Boston and in my opinion, any of those cities would work as a gta game. And youre views are based on the fact that you personally dont know much about seattle. not everyone. My point is... there are probably about as many people who know very little about miami as there are who know very little about seattle. I did't know much about miami when i ferst got Vice City, but i got the game anyway and loved it. I'm not saying Seattle is the most famous place on the planet, I'm just saying that it is definately well-known enough to make a good game. And I'm sure there are as many people who know about the Space Needle as there are who know about the Kyoto Tower.

I see your point, but i dont see any reason why Rockstar would choose Seattle / Washington over the dozens of other potential sites. Yes okay its a living breathing city with a few good things in it probably, although probably not much unique stuff. Anyway, its not for us to dictate, they'll already know where its gonna be.

Yeah I hear you... we got way off the origional reason why i replied to this topic in the first place. It wasnt to argue over how famous seattle is... it was just to point out to whoever started it that my whole idea for the seattle thing wasnt solely just because i'm from there. Plus i realize that rockstar making a seattle game would be a longshot. I never for a second thought they would actually do it. sorry if i got a bit hostile sounding though. It's a stupid thing to argue about.

I would say that i (from sweden) know more about miami and chicago than about seattle. But anyway, Dubai would be a cool place to play GTA in. They have some extraordinary stuff there that defenitely is (or will be) world wide known.

I reckon that GTA4 shouldnt have a city that its based on. Instead it should have all of the worlds major landmarks in on state. Imagine it; you're driving by the Sydney Opera House, then you pass the Eiffel tower 5 minutes later (in real time not GTA time) then after 10 mins of traveling you enter the Grand Canyon.

Let`s return to the subject, shall we?

I have an idea:

A group of Europeans go to America in search of new jobs. But they all get killed...aparently. One of them survives and decides to take revenge. He leaves the path of law and joins a new criminal organization. Soon enough, he becomes its leader. He needs to maintain his popularity and power and rule Chicago. But other cities also provide opportunities for him will he succed in a secret way, or become know everywhere?

The player can change his name and appereance. He can do things both legal and ilegal. More uses for money, things to buy, he can`t be too rich without crazy skill.

im sry if i am rude but i think my idea is just simply...the best... ok here we go in full detail!!:

Its 2005, somwhere on the east coast{not decided} and your a male who is about 25-30 years old. You and a friend used to be in an Import car tuner business when all these other companies came in and put you out of business. The main focus is about the cars. the citie should have long highways and freeways with realistic traffic unlike gta SA where traffic like changes lanes every 2 seconds and crashes u starting a 10 car pileup. there should be cities and suburbs and all that cool stuff also. Other random street racers can also drive around with modded cars.

After the main character finds a job at another import tuner shop he begins to relize there are major crimes going on within the import tuner business in the cities.. where you begin working for people , doing dirty jobs for them getting money street racing, taking out threats to the underground club, spying on other enemy garages to see there updated cars, basicly making cars , guns, and tactics the main factor. also dirty cops,, you got to have dirty cops, they should play a roll again but better than san andreases dirty cops. you should also have to go to an underground school to learn the best ways to mod your car, steal cars theright way so in the beggining you cant really steal cars and if you do its really hard. i guess there would be kind of gangs in the cities but not like thugs just like different "teams" i guess u can say and there are always other street racers from another team out to get you. this is kinda of like "the fast and the furiouse" like the scene where all those asain guys on motercycles force paul walker and vin desil into there garage area and blow up there car and threaten them. stuff like that should go down in the heart of the main city .

The cars.......the cars should be FULLY customizable like in need for speed underground 2 and should have neon lights, bodykits, vynal stickers to make the rides unique. There should be american muscle cars, exotic cars, import cars , and other crazy things... i think there should even be an aircraft carrier way out in the ocean or a ship that has all the latest cars on it and it is waaaay out in the ocean and a bunch of misson is there or even somone you work for later in the game. OMG it would be SO sick... also the game should feature a way to make friends throughout the cities that you can report to and/or drive around with to get the latest street racing locations, possably even an R3 mission} ... there can be drag races, circuits and all that stuff.... i have never been more seriouse about anything in my life than this topic that i am talking about right NOW!!! The plot should also have alternative ways to do missions meaning if you do one thing , the next tiem u start a new game if u choose sotmhing else you play a bunch of other mission so the replay value is kept at a really high level... like you can choose to work for 1 guy or the other ..... possably having crazy missions like steal these car parts, spy on so and so's garage, kill this driver so the race can be easy ,, sit on a rooftop and be a sniper and wait for a specific driver to come up the street and shoot him right through the front window.. cool differnet missions....

The peds should be way more interactive... they should have an intelegance like if they remmeebr you they will like you or not possably asking for a lift, or throwing shit at your car. there should also be more random cop chaces through the cities so u can be waling up the street and you see a car speed by the was in a street race and a bunch of cops chasing after him... it would be cool!....also there should be a news channel on the radio that just keeps bringuing up cop chases in the cities... also good music from "blink 182, story of the year, senses fail, lost prophets, zebrahead" and good music to drive to , stuff like that..

The main focus should be the CARS....that was one thing about GTA cars werent the most important thing...gta SA had some good car plots to it but it wasnt close to enough.. moddign cars was almost a waist b/c they disopeared anyway or crashed in like .10 seconds after you got them, its a waiste....

Some more in detail missions should be missions that are 110% tacticle, like stealthy missions in junkyards, or boosting cars like "gone in 60 seconds" or sneeking through a warhouse with a camra taking pictures of what the enemys are doing where it can then go into a cutscene on the main character listeing to what the other people are saying...

by the way there should be alot of cutscenes...who doesnt like them they are the best i love them....gta SA did a great job at that!!!

I hope like somone from Rockstar reads this b/c this is the perfect game... ok im gonna go to bed and drea mof my idea...goodnight :clapping:

I don't really enjoy pointing out people breaking forum rules but you bumped a 5+ month old topic. Hopefully you did it unintentionally.

You think your idea is the best, but I couldn't read any further than the first paragraph. Not to be impolite your idea isn't bad, or good, just average.

I would still like the future GTA games to be set in London and North America. I personally don't want to have any of the next GTAs set in Asia. I have nothing against Asia but I just like the western theme of crime, or Grand Theft Auto, BUT if it's still set in Asia I'll just have to go along with it. Most people would say "North America has run out of famous cities", but as I said once before, in my opinion I think since this is a new console, the cities would be expanded in size and detail. By the time we've played through all the cities on the PS3/X360 it will be the next generation. I'll emphasize this again, this is merely my personal speculation.

i think it should be set around the central belt of scotland jus for a laugh,glasgow,edinburugh and sterling area,i think this would be a great idea,the glasweigian accent and the neds with their bottles of buckfast starting gang fights and just fighting for the fun of it,and the gangters that are not that well know but they are there i can assure you,running the streets and getting neds to take care of things stealing cars and robbing from the junkies all the neds some with babies and their cheap gold all over themselves i think this wpuld be an interesting sight since i am from scotland,and the football games celtic fans fighting rangers fans and so on... there is not much open land in glasgow but the open land in between the cities above may be interesting and the underground and stuff like that i would like it.

others may not? :pissedred::ph34r::thumbsup::cigar::evil:

In my opinion, The next GTA should, no, MUST be set in the UK. It is after all the home country

of Rockstar and gta, we havent had a uk based one since london, and i think it is time for a revisit especially since the new PS3 and Xbox 360 technology is available. The map should be a free roaming one of the british isles, and it would work better anyway as the georgraphy would mean you could have just the whole country instead of having to put in infinite oceans or invisible walls like you had in the previous america -set gta's.

Well, here are my ideas-

Selectable characters- when you begin the game, instead of it starting up right away it goes into a character select screen. Im not sure what exactly they should feel like, but i think there should be about 3 or 4, and at least one of them being female. The character you pick determines the story line, which of course means theres more missions.

Working ATM machines- the thing which annoyed me about CJ and tommy vercetti was when they went shopping. they ALWAYS had their cash available. There should also be credit cards available, and you must have either of which to buy anything, just like in real life.

More aircraft, vehicles etc.- Goes without saying really, there should be jetskis, controllable ships,

and more military aircraft such as jeeps, armoured cars, and more jet fighters. (not just the hydra) :yup:

Music shops- yep you heard, whenever you start the game, you are only able to access the radio but as you progress and earn money, then you can purchase cd's at a music shop which enables you to choose what you want to hear and when you want to listen to it. This will of course allow a much bigger music library, which will be possible through the technology of next gen consoles. when you walk near a cd player in a house or car, a pop up menu allows you to choose an album or track, along with a pic of the cover art!

The ability to start conversations- a real missed opportunity in SA, in my opinion, instead of waiting for a person to talk to you, i should have been able to target a person with the R1 button, press L or R which brings up a pop up menu with greetings, compliments insults etc. With the addition of more personalities made possible by the next gen consoles, i think this will add a new dimension to the dating missions. (instead of just 7 gf's there are 100's spread out throughout the game who you must converse with in order to start relationships with!) The choice of address of course, determines the response of the person be it affection, violence or an insult back.

Nice idea there. As well as going to music shops, you could make your own radio station with your loaded tracks on the HDD. I like the talking thing with people but I doubt it if many people will use this feature. It'll be a waste. :erm:

The year can be around the present. As for the city I reckon Sydney Australia would be perfect. (not just because I was born here) It is the perfect scenario, A busy CBD area, A huge busy harbour with quiet bays and rivers with islands around, Beach areas (bondi, manly), suburban areas. It would be Awesome! But not only in sydney, the possibility to travel to and from somewhere like new york would be great having your crime family situated in new york and you being a new "manager" in that crime family looking after sydney. So having two major cities being quite different to each other would give you a choice of whatever you like. There should be a huge variety of gangs, Triads, russians, lebanese, G-unit, islanders, and all the cars should be real models. IT WOULD BE THE PERFECT GTA!!!!

Oh yeah. You also have the monorail and tramlines and trains and ferries and buses and planes and all kinds of public transprot you can use or steal:)

I'd like a darker scenario in an urbanized envirorment,in an industrial city with ghettos and abandoned industrial areas where criminals wait for the next victim.It sounds weird I know but I'd like that.

The best new location for GTA should be a mixture of Italy, the Balkans, and Russia. Organized crime is PEAK in those areas (one could get virtually anything in that range).
