^Lol, yeah they are a bit. But so are downloadable wallpapers and car washes, and they ended up in GTAIV

The car wash thing probably would of been for one mission, but Rockstar had a day off so they changed the coding so it was forever.

Wallpapers are so you can tell which phone you are using, but Rockstar had a day off so they changed the coding so it was forever.

Erm, i'm out of radio ideas. Perhaps one radio related mission at least.

Another thing. I hope they include a "song now playing" text somewhere underneath the station name. I found Zit! a bit clumsy. Half the time, the song that was playing finished as i rang, and i got the title of the next song. And unlike earlier GTAs (except SA), the songs weren't listed in order in the manual.

GTA IV has too many radio stations to choose from.
I only go with The Journey, Electro Choc and The Classics.

An idea I have ..
there could be CD's (or tapes, or MP3's .. depending on era) you could collect through the game. Purchase them, gift from friends you make and secret CD's that you find.
Then there could be a way to make your own mix CD's.

So then you could have a choice of radio stations or a collection of CD's.

Some of the CD's you collect could also include things like recorded conversations and things like that for missions and the like.

So a mission could involve setting up surveilance equipment (listening device) getting the info about someone being a rat, then eliminating them. Or something like that.

If there is a punk station then I would like them introduce a function where you can set certain stations to never appear when you enter a vehicle.

I liked the SA radio stations good selection of reggae, funk, hip hop but the rock stations needed to be better the only decent songs I remember were Free Bird and Killing in the Name, I also hated the Vice City music aside from a handful of MJ songs and Act like you know, not my kind of music.

i'd like to see an old school hip hop station. Wu Tang Clan, Onyx, Lost Boyz, etc.

also a 60's-70's station with more pop/rock/folk type music. good driving music.


There needs to be a mid 90's East Coast station


QUOTE (sic soulja @ Nov 9 2009, 10:42 PM) *
it should have more hit music from the rap section, like 50, em, dre, dmx, ti, lil flip, so on, for rock people like hollywood undead, brokencyde, disturbed, linkin park, godsmack, marilyn manson, some big band and swing, opera, modern country,



No to 50 cent, Eminem, Dr Dre, DMX, T.I and definitely no to Lil Flip

I do want a80's and a 90s rock station. I also enjoy the talk stations, usually.

Radio Mini-games would be interesting.

I was thinking about being able to call into talk shows and say random/funny things. Would be a nice little add-in to amuse myself for a few minutes.

I think they should set the next game somewhere between the mid-60s - mid 70s. Lots of great music to choose from and so many things where going on in the world to work into the game's story.

If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

Did you say Vice City sucked?

Anyway, agreed. GTA needs moar types of techno beyond house, acid, and dance. Maybe DNB or breakcore. Or some grime/dubstep.


may i push some hardstyle into the equation?

Vice City is often toted as the best of the bunch, but the game sucked ...


But it didn't though did it. I agree that the music was quality, good variety that fitted the era of the setting of the game. The music is important for GTA games but to say that 50% of the weighting of the enjoyment of the game is derived from the music and 25% equal graphics and gameplay is a bit of a daft comment. If that were the case you may as well just but the soundtrack. The soundtrack helps the overall vibe and mood of the game and can really set games apart if done well or badly but I have never bought a game thinking well the gameplay was poor but thankfully all I was after was a decent soundtrack.

WRT your inital question what music goes into the game would entirely depend on the setting and era.

Go play a game of VC with the music turned off. Come back and tell me how it was.

for this stuff you call "rock: that is the worst selection i have seen, i could put up with marilyn manson he is good from time to time but godsmack, hollywood undead and that other crap, get it outta here! i like the music rockstar chooses, its not so mainstream so its not like what you hear on the radio everyday if you like radio music, which i dont, but for anyone who plays online whether its on PC or console they should just allow a way for you to upload your music to some site and transfer it onto your disc for your own personal radio station or something idont know, just a though
