To be honest, the 1980's was Florida's best period, nothing interesting has happened there since. So the only historical thing they can use is the Cuban crime wave.

Scuse me?

The Florida Recount. Nuff said. mad.gif

But the 1970s? Arent they doing the 1970's in Agent?

Well, pattern-wise it would be VC in the 90's.

Might work.

And then SA in the early 2000's. tongue.gif

Wouldn't work.

If they didn't take it seriously, SA could work. Three years after the murder of Mad Dog (Tupac or Biggie reference, I guess.) his brother gets a lead on the killer, blah blah blah...

I dunno, I just don't feel like either city right now. The annoying 'celebutante' theme from TBOGT would permeate the whole game in SA, and like Dup said, nothing good has happened in Miami since the 80's. Really, almost every city has been uneventful as of late. Then again, GTA IV didn't revolve around a real-world event, except for the war that didn't play into the game much.

But GTA also draws a lot of inspiration from various films and other fiction, so it doesn't necessarily have to be rooted in actual events.

So what other decent gangster films haven't GTA paid homage to yet?

Donnie Brasco? The Departed? Casino? Reservoir Dogs? There is still a lot of decent films to draw inspiration from i guess. But the period is always important. Because it does set the tone for that period.

/edit ooo my 1000th post!

I don't care if it's the 70's, 80's, 90's or present time. Vice city would look nothing like it did before. But it would still kick ass

Yeah, but the free-roaming would still be better than GTA IV. God-awful story, though...

I loved those SA-MP mods because you could make your own race tracks. I wish they did something cool like that in the next GTA!

Other than that, i honestly think they'll stick to present day for the entire series on current platform, unless they don't sell well, then they may go back and rethink about going back into different eras.
