Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Image via Wikipedia


One of the most popular video game series of all time is Grand Theft Auto.  Ever since GTA III, these games changed the gaming world and other games that were pretenders and copiers of the open world gameplay.  The games have been wildly controversial for the amounts of things that you could do in the game (mostly illegal) and the controversy has just made the games more popular.  It was announced that Rockstar is working on a new game however the location is not known and people are wondering if the game will hit PS3/X-box360 or they will wait for their new console to come out.

A)  If you REFLECT on video games in general, Why has such a controversial game series like Grand Theft Auto been so popular with consumers? 

B)  Even though Grand Theft Auto is already a popular game, why do you think the location will make it more popular/less popular?

C)  If Liberty City was New York City, Vice City was Miami, San Andreas was Los Angeles, then what city do you think the next game should take place in and what should they call it?

    A) i think that this has been happening because they probably are always copying the other most popular video games out there.

    B) i don’t really think that location makes the video game more popular then what it already is. who cares where they make a video game.

    C) i don’t think i know what will be the next city for the next game because all of that is so confusing and plus the games sound pretty boring to me for what it sounds like and what it looks like right now

    A. I think that this game has became very popular because they will take some cool stuff off of over video games. Also, it has a lot of effects to make the game seem cool.

    B. I think that it doesn’t matter where the location is. The location shouldn’t matter because other video games it looks like they are all in the same places. It shouldn’t matter where it is at.

    C. I think they will end up coming up with there own state, or a new state that they haven’t used yet. My opinion I wouldn’t care about where the location is at. I wouldn’t know the next name.

    A.) it has been so good at selling in the series because they are fun and killing games and most people who play games like gta1, gta2, gta3, gta4, are in there teens or older people who haven’t completely grown up yet. people play these games because of shooting and cussing and what most people like in games these days. i got all of the grand theft auto’s and beat everyone of them.

    b.) location will make it more popular because they put them in big city’s where people go to visit or for vacations. also they make it look like the actual place so when people are playing they are like oh i’ve been there and blah blah blah and it will let them actually act like they are there because they was at one point.

    c.)i think that the next game should take place in Kentucky or L.A. because there ain’t really a game made about those city’s. and i don’t know a name for it.

    A) because people think that guns and killing people are fun and for chaos.

    B) Because certain places make people want to play it even more. Also if its their home town they will want to play it and have it to remind it of something.

    C) Mexico because theres a lot of gang fights there. Also i like mexico and theres some cool stuff there

    A.) Maybe its because they have been copying other video games like the other ones that are popular their trying to make them like the popular ones so they can make money.

    B.) No, I don’t think the locations of the video game really matter because I understand some areas are worst than other but still if you have the same material like police and robbing then I really don’t see the problem.

    C.) I think the next video game should be in ALT i fell this way because if you think about all the crime that happens there than it would be perfect ! i think they should call it Grand Theft Auto ATL

    A.) I guess people like to play games like that to live the life they’ll never have through the video game. Also, kids like to think they can do illegal thing, even though they know they can’t, so they play it on this.

    B.) I guess because in different places you can do more illegal, or better things. Also, a fresh location is better sometimes, especially when you can just change the game to change the location, if you don’t already like the location.

    C.) I think it should take place in Las Vegas, and be called Franjisco.

    May 12, 2011 @ 08:32:38

    A). because you can still cars and helicopters bikes and all that stuff. you can kill people run from cops and you can be free in the game, there is no boundaries on gta.

    B). it will make it more popular because they put the location in like ewe jersey or Atlanta and people can relate or connect to the place. and people have always wanted to go there so they like it where the location is.

    C). i think las vegas , because that is the city that never sleeps and it would be cool to do that and there is banks you can gamble and alot of other games.

    A). Grand Theft Auto is so popular because it’s allowing kids to play a game doing illegal stuff. Some people enjoy going around stealing cars, killing people, & etc. And there able to do that in a video game. It’s kinda like your putting yourself in there shoes because you are controlling every move your player makes.

    B). It will probably make it more popular because maybe in more places you can do more things. It will probably make the game more interesting if they do it in a new cool location. Maybe the laws will be different there and you get chased by cops easier, and it’s always fun to get chased by cops. (on video games).

    C). Maybe they should do one in San Diego. I don’t really know what they could call it. They could turn it backwards and it could be Ogeid Nas, or Diego San. They could also make up there own place..(:

    A) Because i think people are interested in games with shooting & violence.

    B) i don’t think location matters , but it would be better if they made grand theft auto in popular places people know about.

    C) i think they could do a grand theft auto that is out of the U.S. Like , in Europe .. i think it should be called Grand theft auto London , or Grand theft auto England .

    A. Grand Theft Auto has so many consumers because the game is so fun to play. Gives kids the chance to do a criminal life on the game. Making it seem realistic. The fun part is you can steal any car you want. 🙂 Really cool and fun.

    B. The location will make the game more popular because the location is the coolest part about the game. Some locations are bigger and better than others. It will give you a lot of room and space to move around in your car and things.

    C. I think the game should choose Kentucky because Kentucky has been in a lot of bad criminal stuff as like first 48. We stay on that show a lot. It should be called Criminal City. There are a lot of criminal people in the world especially in Louisville. It would be fun to see our city on Grand Theft Auto.

    A.)The reason why this game is most popular because u can ride bike and you can do stuff that u can do in real life but make it alive throw the cops
    B.)Becuse they already had an board of that location and its like you doin it agin like the saints row and saints row 2
    C.)I think they would make it in Boston because Boston has an rich back ground because if you seen the movies the town then you would think of the same

    A ; Grand Theft Auto Has So Many Consumers Because , Grand Theft Auto i s A Very Popular Game , It Gives Kids A Chance , To See What / How It Feels To Be A Criminal. The Game is So Realistic , Because What You Do On The Game Really Happens , In Real Life .

    B ; i Think The Location Makes It More Popular Because , The Location Be In Like The Hood And Streets , Sometimes Nice Or Good Neighborhoods , And The Locations Give You Alot Of Space To Do What You Have To Do .

    C ; i Think It Will Maybe Take Place In Los Vegas . Or Maybe Even Mexico , i Dont Know Because i Really Dont Play Grand Theft Auto Like That ,

    A.) Today “bad” is considered cool which is why I think people like it so much, I just simply like glitches that happen in the game. xD

    B.) Location is everything, in big city places there’s more stores, and more stores means more stuff to steal, which means more fun. But if you’re in a small town it would be less fun. In the words of Achmed the dead terrorist ” Location, location, location!”

    C.) Somewhere in Las Vegas! =)

    A)Because based in real life thats why it becomes famous.

    B) because the locations are real and because there in big famous citys.

    C) Los vegas for la noire.


  20. Ju$tice Chadwell
    May 12, 2011 @ 11:24:55

    A.) Grand Theft Auto has been so popular because it has a story line and is open world. Based on what other games in the GTA series a lot of people like games that are open world.

    B.) I think that the better the location ,where the game takes place, looks that it would influence people to buy it.

    C.) Since that Vice City was Miami, Liberty city was New York, and San Andreas was L.A. I think that the next game should take place in Detroit. I think this because based on what the cities looked like the game should have one that has not so good city background to it. I would also like to call the city in GTA Motor City.

    A. because its so realistic. anything you do in there actually could happen. plus its where you can do what you wanna do there. go on a shooting rampage. its a stress reliever as well.

    B. because we want a game where we can do a lot. we don’t want a small place like Maine. we want big place with big opportunity. plus it could be fun but boring because it a non really popular state.

    C. its hard to say really. but i would choose Russia. take it out of the USA make it new make it different. with a new background and new story and we will be happy and supprized.

    (A) because you can do more things and have more freedom in this than other games that are made/created
    (B) more popular because you can explore the new city’s
    (C)i think the next city will be in Chicago because they have a lot of crime in Chicago and they will call it grand theft 5 .

    Part A; I think that people like those kinda things because they can’t do it in real life but I also think they like it because of the game in general 🙂 Some people play games just because of the game.

    Part B; I don’ t think it would matter! Because the gamers would just like to play the game, but like say one person in the gamers family like got killed there they might now wanna play it.

    Part C; I think they would probably do it in like anywhere, I don’t think the players of the game care about where the game takes place they just want to play.

    A) i think people been drawn to Grand thief Auto because its about killing people the bloody death hookers all that have really drawn in the people in because you could let off some steam by killing in a game or something of that nature and the fact that you can break the laws and not get in trouble might also cause people to want to play it

    B) because there in a location where stuff like murder and gangs are at and where you can look on the street and see a hooker and not care its really there and then you can see some gang bangers and all that also its really at the spots that it happens the most often

    C) The next spot i would have to be is another place where there is a high murder rate along with a big city and gangs smokers stuff of that nature just like the first 4

    A.) It’s because it allows you to do anything you want. People can fill their greatest desires in the game and not have consequences.

    B.) You have to have a good location. That makes the characters more believable, as well as play into the story.

    C.) I think the game should take place in Boston, Massachusetts. It is a big city that could harbor a good story.

    May 12, 2011 @ 13:34:12

    A) Games like GTA have been so popular because its a game with an open environment. You can virtually do anything at anytime. The explosions, the killing, and all the illegal stuff is what makes games like GTA so good.

    B) The location would make a difference because it will show what type of environment and people are dressed like. It would also show the type of cars there are and if there are any water vehicles.

    C) The video doesn’t really talk about the location that much but if i was to name it the new game it would be New Vegas. It would take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    May 12, 2011 @ 13:34:38

    A-Grand Theft Auto is popular because the graphics and the details is really good and on the game you can kill anybody you want too in the game.

    B-like you in a city with a lot of people and not in the middle of no wear, with no body in site then the game be really boring.

    C-it would tack place in Hollywood and it would be called gangstahood.


  33. hannan 5th
    May 12, 2011 @ 13:35:12

    A.) I think that such controversial game series like grand theft auto has been to popular to consumers because most of the teenagers now like all the violence stuff and these games now seem so realistic with the graphics and I think that attracts consumers.

    B.) I think even though it’s a popular game the location will make it more/less popular because people want somewhere where there is a lot of things going on somewhere they can do a lot, with a lot of big space.

    C.) I think the next game should take place in Paris and I think they could call it Eiffel city

    May 12, 2011 @ 13:35:17

    A: the games are so popular because its a good game that kids can play and also do mad stuff like shoot with there guns and steal stuff and rob peoples cars its better if they play on it as a game than real like but its showing little kids what they shouldn’t do but little kids don’t really know nothing and i think its a mad influence.
    B:because the locations is real and and they got allot of locations like stores houses and buildings to steal from and other stuff.
    C: i think it should take place at German because its a new place it will be a new beginning in the games.also its going to be a new background from the game they also should make the characters talk in German and they will be able to change the Language on the game if they want .

    A. I think that GTA has become so popular cause its interesting you can never run out of new things to do on it.
    B. Cause the graphics will be better if they are on the new game console, but i don’t think people will be particularly mad if its on the xbox 360 or the ps3.
    C. I think the next one would be GTA Washington D.C. cause the makers of GTA are doing big and famous cities that real people would love to travel to.


    May 12, 2011 @ 13:54:22

    A) It is so popular because everyone likes playing a game that is violent and really fun to play.

    B) The location will make it more popular depending where the grand theft auto games are because if they are in a store in a rich city a lot of people will come to the store and buy the game.

    C) Probably Chicago because it is a popular city and I would call it Grand Theft Auto Chicago Madness.


  38. Yesenia Rascon
    May 12, 2011 @ 14:04:31

    a. Because they’re new, fun, and they deal with a lot of violence.
    b. I think that it doesn’t matter where the location is as long as the game is fun.
    c.i think it should be in Egypt and i don’t have a name.


  39. Jonathan Davis
    May 12, 2011 @ 19:05:18

    a) I think it has become so popular because kids feel like they can play mature games. People just feel the need to always buy violent games anyway.

    B) I say it will make it more popular because almost all of the games are in the same state of California. At the same time, it would get boring to be playing in the same type of landscape.

    C) I really don’t know because I am not creative on that many names there. Though, Sanville can be a name to be like Louisville. Just a dumb opinion.


  40. teaira swazya
    May 23, 2011 @ 11:29:59

    a.)I think that some people think killing is cool.

    b.)It will be more popular because most of the games are made in cailfiona an have the same landsape.

    c.)I dont know
