Posted on June 30, 2007, William What If? Grand Theft Auto MMO
I love all kinds of video games, and have recently taken a strong fondness for MMOs. The thought crossed my mind that GTA would actually make an interesting MMO. Perhaps I should shoot this idea over to the powers that be one day and see what they think. Close your eyes for a moment and just imagine running around Vice City for example with thousands of other players at the same time.
The possibilities are really endless and it could be one of the most original MMOs to ever hit the shelves. You could be anything from a car thief to a backstreet pimp and eventually work your way up to boss status. Clans could become virtual gangsÃ¢$¦. all in good fun of course. I’m sure this would never happen in my lifetime, but I can still think about these things. If you think there are anti-gamers out there now, people would come out of the woodworks to shut down a project like this.
I’ll have to delve into this idea a little deeper as time goes on and see if I can develop some solid basics. I threw in the movie poster of Ron Howard’s first movie to prove a point that the idea of having fun stealing cars was around long before the game of the same title.
