i know GTA is pretty much known for the whole "rags to riches" routine. but what about for the next GTA, u start out with riches and then go to rags and then have to work your way back up? i could just imagine the next protagonist living in one of those houses on Big Horn Drive in Alderney with the sports cars and what not. has millions of dollars, running some criminal syndicate of some kind and then, next thing you know, he's living in the kinda of apt Niko has on Mahesh and goes flat broke. i dont know, it just would seem like a change of setting, imo. i mean, with Niko, they really didnt follow the standard of setting when it comes to this. i read online that their goal for the storyline was for a "rags to better rags" kind of story and i think they made IV achieve that. but riches to rags is a concept i would like to see them do
Yeah it would be a good concept, but wouldn't what you described be riches to rags to riches again?
I think it would be cool start as a rich character, and maybe get double crossed or kidnapped and taken to a different city and you have to find connections to get back to your own city and gang etc... But i wouldn't like to go from a mansion in the start mission to a grotty flat that Niko has in the next... Would be the very opposite of rewarding.
