Grand Theft Auto: The Man
« on: October 02, 2005, 06:01:29 pm »
Imagine the GTA franchise from the viewpoint of police officers trying to shut down the criminals and mafia from the original GTA games. You start off as a rookie officer and advance to detective, then undercover, and later Police Commissioner. Rockstar could go back and retell the story starting with GTA3.

Maybe one day we'll see GTA Online. All cities from all their games including GTA 1 and 2 would exist in a persistent world. You could choose between two sides: organized crime and the criminal underground or the police force and FBI, with each having pros and cons. I think the Guild Wars model would be popular. Rockstar would release small episodic content at $15.00 each. Factions would be similiar to WOW with one difference: lower and upper division ranks. Rank 1 would be the Criminal Underground and Police force (lower) and they would battle one another. Rank 1 would also be restricted to which city they dwell in. Rank 2 would be Organized Crime and the FBI (upper) and they would battle one another and rank 1 factions. Rank 2 wouldn't be restricted to one city. Rank 2 would have jurisdiction over rank 1. To get to rank 2 you would have to work your butt off in rank 1. In either faction advancement to rank 2 wouldn't be easy or guaranteed because of politics and the life expectancy on both sides is low. One concept to make gameplay challenging would center around death. If you die you would start over. This is how EVE Online does things. If your ship explodes you have to rebuild. I think this would add a Rockstar edge to GTA online.

These are my ideas. I'm sure you have ideas of your own.

I actually thought of the GTA online idea a while ago, but mine wasn't a PvP type thing. It was just going around like in the one player game, but there are other guys. I like your idea better, though.

Aren't they basically making a game like GTA online already? It's called All Points Bulletin I believe.
You choose to be a cop or criminal and you move up in rank as you go along.

Very excited about it, but I haven't heard anything new on it for a long time.
