One of the top things on the GTA 6 wishlist is a brand-new location. So far, the GTA series has explored three key areas: Vice City, Liberty City, and San Andreas. We’ve also dabbled in London and Alderney in some more minor GTA titles.
Therefore, we think it’ll be refreshing to explore a new city in GTA 6. Imagine a GTA game set in Chicago, Philadelphia, New Orleans or even Washington DC.
Although GTA 5 brought back bicycles, we’d like GTA 6 to branch out on the vehicle variation available. If the series continues to go down the San Andreas path, wouldn’t it be appropriate for GTA 6 to introduce rollerblades and skateboards with which to traverse the boulevards?
GTA 5’s San Andreas is certainly vast – bigger in scale than the last three GTA games and Red Dead Redemption combined, in fact. However, bigger doesn’t necessarily mean more interactive.
While driving through San Andreas’ seemingly unceasing terrain, you quickly realise that there isn’t much to do outside of missions, side quests or the Strangers and Freaks meetings.
Yes, there are a few stalls on Vespucci Beach and a variety of smaller stores if you stray off the pavement, but we’d really appreciate heightened interaction with the stores, houses, and buildings within the new world.
GTA 5 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC introduced an optional First Person Shooter (FPS) mode for the game. It’s a great way to have a really immersive GTA experience and it’s impressive that Rockstar has implemented it in such a way that it’s possible to play through the whole game in the first person.
It certainly changes up the combat system and driving sections of GTA 5, but we realise it isn’t perhaps the best way to enjoy the game from start to finish.
Although it might not be for everyone, the FPS option should definitely be available to everyone from the off. Then you can decide how you play the game and customise your viewing angle to your particular playing style.
This goes without saying really, but we would love a simultaneous console and PC release for the next GTA game.
VR Support for GTA 6
The addition of a first-person perspective in GTA 5 added a poignant layer of realism to the experience, so imagine this in virtual reality. Such a feature might prove controversial, but it would certainly feel like a substantial stepping stone for a medium still in its infancy. Exploring an expansive open world without restrictions in VR would be simply mind-blowing, and we’d love to see Rockstar take a stab at it.
