I don't really agree or disagree with any of the points, although When I play The Getaway I don't really like any of the cars in the game, Most are small and shitty imo, Might be a good car in real life, but I don't like the really small ugly cars. Sorry, Just my opinion. I like to see a wide variety of vehicles, Muscel cars, Exotics, Sports, Suvs, Compact, Luxary, Full size cars, etc
The Getaway isn't anywhere near a good enough comparison of a game to say that one made by Rockstar North
set in somewhere else outside of the US would work or not.
Rockstar North have every ability to make a game in for example London or Manchester and make it as good as every other Grand Theft Auto game if not better.
1. Driving on the other side of the road.
This hasn't effected the sales in the UK or any other country that drives on the left hand side.
2. The Radio stations.
Try listening to Kiss FM breakfast show, Capital FM breakfast show and tell me their not as entertaining as anything you get in the US. If anything it should be better because its better funded.
3. The types of vehicles.
American cars tend to be shit. The best car manufacturers in the world are either European or Japanese.
4. The range of characters. (The U.S. has Whites, Blacks, Asians, Latinos, Italians, Indians, Irish, British, Russian, etc....)
Come to London and tell me were not diverse.
5. The Criminal Lifestyles (I don't see much on Adult criminal life overseas)
I have first hand insight onto the criminal lifestyle as my dad is one of the biggest drug dealers in South West London and has some very infamous friends. There is also the Albanian, Russian mafias which work out of London along with the 'families' (Adams', Richardsons etc) - I was at the funeral of Joey Pyle
, one of the UKs most infamous gangsters. A good friend of my dads who ive known my whole life was recently arrested with over Ģ100,000 worth of cocaine. He had to put his house as bail. He got away with it because the other people he was with were carrying it. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/5302984.stm
6. I don't see how they would mix the accents well, and make it seem legit.
Its called actors. Typically in American films if they want someone who speaks in an english accent they hire an english actor. Look at the credits of the voice actors for GTA4. There are some very strong foreign names there, im thinking they weren't paid to do American accents.
7. GTA has always made fun of Americas over-hyped media, and cultural lifestyles. (We don't get much of your media over here, so it would be hard to relate to the jokes. (I do like Shaun of the Dead though)
Thats fair enough but its Rockstar North taking the blatent piss out of your media. They also have taken the blatent piss out of British culture too, probably more so.
8. I just think it would limit the games overall potential.
I disagree. The Grand Theft Auto series is now considered to be a cash cow. No matter what they make it will sell in the bucket loads. If they consistently fuck up then it will affect sales but making a game set in another country won't affect that. They have built a system and style of gameplay which works and will work every time.
