Please post what locations you want in the next Driver game like cities (preferiably), states, regions, countries, etc, etc. I would like it if you could explain why you want the locations (Reflections would [probably] like to hear your reasoning). I have one rule, please NO FIGHTING, ARGUING, OR FLAMING. Everybody has a right to post their ideas. I will report those that can't respect this rule, even if I'm not involved.


Here's my idea for a city (well, I'd like to see many more cities, but here's one for now). I want New York, NY, USA. Yes, I am aware that game producers and movie directors always pick New York, but it will be great. I have my reasons why it's a great place for the next Driver game.


-Has a bunch of rivers and islands
-Wide roads
-Lots of subway lines
-Famous railroads ran in NYC including the Pennsylvania, Long Island, New York Central, and New York New Haven & Hartford that shaped the city's railroad transportation lines

-Lots of genres of music started there like Harlem Jazz and hip-hop
-Biggest city in the United States
-Awesome city that was in a lot of games and movies
-Should have extentions to parts of New Jersey, Connecticut, The Hudson Valley, and Long Island (which are all nearby)

-I've been there in person and I have to say, I love it!!!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
-Lots of famous landmarks
-Artery-clogged traffic (especially at dawn and dusk)
-Famous for all sorts of public transportation (like taxis, subways, water taxis, and buses), cars, and trains
-Is divided into 5 boroughs, so you know it's huge already, and has different looking areas

-Lots of bridges that go over the many rivers like the Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg, Queensboro, Triboro, Hellgate, Whitestone, Throgsneck, Verranzo-Narrows, Henry Hudson, and Washington Bridges

That's all I can think of right now for New York. I'll come up with other cities that I would like to see in the next Driver in future posts. Please Reflections, make New York appear in Driver 4/5 as at least one of the locations, and make it accurate this time.

Well New York City that's for sure.
You pretty much wrote some reasons why I want it.



Then I would want Miami too.Back in D3 I would always have Take A Ride in Miami at night.I'll drive by the beach and just admire the scenery.I loved it.But maybe if they ever have Miami.It could be improve.Like at day,it'll be a busy city but at night there will be people out and partying and etc.

I loved Miami in Driver 1, before Driv3r came out. With Driv3r's Miami, it felt like New York with palm trees. It just felt too cold. And at dusk, it looks like everything is coated with orange juice. If Miami returns in the next Driver, I want the daytime to have the same cast on everything as it did in Driver 1 because it really feels like you're in Florida. Driv3r's Miami was pretty map accurate I have to say.

I don't mean to burst your bubble Slayer_591, but I think many people will have a problem with a Florida city in the next Driver game (not me, but maybe other people and gamers). Many people are saying that Florida is going down to $#!+, and how many people call it "The Devil's State". But I think Miami or any other Florida city will feel awesome if Reflections can get it right. So I have nothing against your wish of having Miami, that's cool!

Now, on to another city that I'd like to see. I'd also like to have Chicago, ILL, USA. And here are my reasons why it would be a cool place for the next.

-The third biggest city in the United States
-Another music-famous city for genres like blues and soul
-Almost every major railroad line connected to Chicago like the New York Central, Pennsylvania, Illinois Central, Santa Fe, Milwaukee Road, Chicago & Northwestern, Great Northern, Baltimore & Ohio, Nickel Plate Road, Erie, and many others that helped shape Chicago's railroad transportation lines, making this an awesome train city

-Has many drawbridges, great for driving your road vehicles off of
-Should have extentions to Indiana and Wisconsin (which are nearby)
-Has many subway and L-train lines
-Mainly famous for trains and subways when it comes to transportation
-Lots of famous landmarks
-The Wacker Expressway and Lakeshore Drive will be really fun roads to drive on

That's all I can think of for Chicago.

I'd have to say that, indeed, Miami or NY would be one of the best options. However, I wouldn't mind seeing something very original. For instance; Rome, Detroit, Paris or even Rotterdam. Why? Here's why.....

Rome has got the beautiful old buildings that, I think, would certainly look good in a game.
Detroit? simply because it's Motor City, after all; it's a game about driving.
Paris? The city's got the most places where you can put ramps; next to the Seine, under the Eiffel tower, and it also looks very good at
night.
Rotterdam? first of all, it's got the biggest port in Europe which could easily be used as a location to bring in HUGE ships filled with stolen cars or drugs. Second of all; it's Hollands' number one crime-city filled with dangerous mobsters.....

Yeah I've had it with NY and Miami, not only does Driver use them a lot, so does every other videogame, and you're not gonna get the city exactly how you want it.

Yeah, I rarely use that sunset setting. I prefer the daytime setting in Driv3r, but it's nice to have a choice.

I'd like to see Chicago if I had to pick one major city. Those bridges that get raised and lowered make for some great stunts in D2.

Yes, I'd love to see Chicago in the next Driver game. I wonder why Rockstar North has never been interested in having Chicago as a city for any of its GTA games when it is one of the best cities in America and should go along the lines as cities like L.A., N.Y.C., San Diego, Las Vegas, and Miami. If Driver can't offer Chicago as a city, then I hope Rockstar North can get that done instead.

Driverman2006
04-29-2007, 01:22 PM
Yeah, I think we should have NYC, Chicago, Vegas, L.A., San Diego, and San Francisco at minimum for sure in the next Driver! I don't know why in GTA:SA they wanted to put Vegas in there. I mean, San Andreas is supposed to be California. Las Vegas is in Nevada. I don't know why they didn't put a San Diego-like city into SA. I mean, it's one of California's most major cities, and R* has a headquarters there.


A revised Chicago would be awesome! I loved it in Driver 2. And I hope we can have it again with a bigger map and better graphics, plus with gameplay of today's driving games too.

I think that almost any city in the world can be suitable for a Driver game, but it would need to meet the requirements of having plenty of hills, roads, places where people live, attractions, vehicles, and anything else that would help it. When you look at Driver, the games can take place almost anywhere, which D2 and D3 show by having locations outside of the U.S. that include Rio De Janiero, Havana, Istanbul, and Nice. I know that Europe is one of the best continents around and that it would be suitable for the hollywood car chase theme as many movies have done it there and not just at North America. Plus, it would make the story seem more interesting somehow.

GTA games have never had any different cities other than returning ones from the first GTA game, which I think needs to stop after around 2 or 3 more GTA games that are released because it will only make it seem boring if they continue this and creativity won't go any higher than Rockstar North wishes for it to do in the 7th generation of Video game consoles.

Driverman2006

I think the foreign cities killed Driver 2 & 3, kind of screwed up its vibe. That's why D:PL and Driver 1 got great scores. I can't say bad things about a country I haven't been to, but what I can say is that Driver is about America. It should be as America as it can be. Now, Reflections needs to put in more cities in America that are near foreign cities. Like San Diego (near Mexico), Detroit (near Canada), and Niagara Falls (near Canada).

Foreign countries are something that's for like a James Bond kind of a game. At least that's the way I see it.

Assaultmachine1
04-29-2007, 01:43 PM
You're right and I suppose that a different development team with a another game franchise can do that instead. I just hope that Reflections will bring in some new cities for the next Driver game and at the same time, give us the best part of the cities from the previous Driver games, which all should be from the U.S.

Dutch_Seinfeld
05-01-2007, 03:09 AM
Damn right it should be. The next Driver game should be as American as New York, Ford and Jerry Seinfeld (!). Although I wouldn't mind seeing some European import cars in the game.

Assaultmachine1
05-01-2007, 01:37 PM
Imports could possibly be the hidden vehicles for the game, so it would be as if Reflections is trying to give us an extra piece of the vehicle roster that we can't find anywhere else in the game.

InsaneDriver06
06-15-2007, 06:06 PM
Whatever land they decide to choose, hopefully it will have plenty of variety and curving roads. I'd really like to see Driver move to the backroads of the country, which offer plenty of twists, turns, hills and jumps not possible in a city, even SF. Play Test Drive Unlimited and you'll know the roads that would be perfect for a Driver game.

Rural roads, dirt roads, offroad chases, that would rock for a Driver game, taking things to another level while still including the city to explore.

Example: The corkscrew ramp bridge that launches James Bond's car across the lake.

Now that I think about my newest concept of having multiple careers, it would be the right thing to have the next Driver game(s) be set in a city of the U.S. where you can find possibly the best driving jobs to be around. It doesn't matter even if it's a returning city (NYC, Miami, San Francisco, LA, etc.) as long as it is a really good city for that type of work, but at the same time, it needs to be a good city in the other things as well because it would be bad if the city Reflections had picked was good for driving jobs, yet it wasn't a good place for anything else.

07-11-2007, 12:29 PM
Cities I'd like in the next driver are: Calgary, Alberta (Has over 1 million people now and Calgary has a bigger population then the whole state of Wyoming), Toronto, Ontario, San Fransisco, L.A. (L.A.'s highways would be fun to get stuck in traffic on LOL) and lastly Chicago. Also I'd like to see drivable trains, boats, of course cars, and airplanes.

Hey Driverkid, are you the same "Driverkid" from the Atari Forums? Because if you are, I'm Mr. Tanner from the Atari Forums!


Anyway, let's get back on topic, shall we?! Another city I want is Las Vegas, NV, USA. Here are my reasons why:

-The casinos capture pretty much every corner of the world with casinos that look like New York City, Egypt, Paris, Rome, and other places too

-Should have extentions to California and Arizona (which are nearby)
-Great city at night time because you can see all of the lights
-The Vegas Strip is an awesome road to drive on for a chase or just cruising
-The Mojave Desert surrounds Vegas, this would be great for off-roading
-Prostitutes walk the streets at night, one reason why Vegas is known as "Sin City"

If they include Vegas, it would offer nice visual variety, but they would need to add plenty of ramps, since most of that area is just flat roads.

Well in Driver 2, Vegas had a construction site full of ramps and piles of coal, pretty fun driving playground.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif


Anyway, as for another city, I want Los Angeles, CA, USA. Here are my reasons why:
-Famous for cars
-Sunset Boulevard would be a fun road to drive on
-Los Angeles has many famous landmarks like the Chinese Theatre, Santa Monica Pier, The Hollywood sign, Union Station, Marina Del Ray, UCLA, and more

-Second biggest city in the United States
-It's both a "Rags" and "Riches" city, with South Central being all ghetto (Rags) and Hollywood being "Riches"

-Great city for pimping your rides out because mechanics like West Coast Customs do some of the sickest customization ever, it would be great to customize your cars in L.A.

-Famous for music like California Rock, Murder-rap, and others
-Beverly Hills and Hollywood Hills are steep hills to drive on

That's all I can think of for Los Angeles for now.

I don't care at all for where the next Driver game will take place. Let it be a real or fictional city. As long as it has all kinds of terrains (forests, mountains, suburban, urban, etc.) and is also a big city, I'll love the city. Maybe Colorado is a great enough example for a state while Denver and maybe even some other places nearby would be a great addition as well. I remember going to Denver, Colorado and there was a nearby location that I think was called Blackhawk City or something and you could find gold as well as a town with a locomotive and several casinos. It was a nice place. I even went to Colorado Springs, which I enjoyed as well. Going up Pike's Peak, a huge mountain was a long, but nice drive. Something like this would be an awesome addition to the Driver franchise. Having attractions that deal with driving, too, is a must have, which I'd consider Blackhawk City or Pike's Peak to be as examples of what attractions we need to see.

Yes I am the same DriverKid from Atari! Las Vegas would be fun because of the casino's and stuff and ubisoft could make fun of CSI! There could be a story revolving around a casino owner who wants to get revenge on Tanner for shutting down illegal casino and drug operations throughout the storyline.

WOW!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif You make Denver sound like the greatest place in the world! I've never been there, but I might go one of these days. And yes, I do think Colorado is a good place for the next Driver game. It does look like a fun state to drive in. I remember seeing a commercial for I believe Hyundai in 2003, and it was set at Pike's Peak, they were implying that their cars have really good traction in the toughest areas (like Pike's Peak).


If Reflections wants to do a whole state, I recommend they pick any of the following:
New York
New Jersey
California
Pennsylvania
Colorado
Connecticut
Massachusetts
Florida
Illinois
Nevada
Arizona
Texas
Louisiana
Hawaii
Vermont
Michigan
Georgia
Tennessee

These states must be really cool states to drive in. I haven't been to all of them, but I think it will turn out great if they pick at least one of these (if they choose to model a whole state).

InsaneDriver06
07-20-2007, 08:04 PM
That's a nice list of locations.

The Colorado location sounds awesome, as it offers a ton of variety. I've driven through the state, easily the most varied and amazing state I've ever seen before. Freeways with tunnels and hills that climb nearly 45 degrees up (must have a good car), bridges, mountain towns (South Park), flatlands, winding back roads, river roads, Denver (big city), etc. Great location yet to be in a game.

Yes. I do think that any of these states or their cities would be a fine addition to the Driver series. What I don't like very much about free-roaming games usually is the fact that they hardly ever go to focus on a new city that has yet to be seen used in other games. The great thing about the Driver series is that it manages to not only focus on cities like NYC, Chicago, Miami, LA, Las Vegas, and San Francisco, but others like Rio De Janeiro, Havana, Istanbul, and Nice. If we could see more unfamiliar locations that were ever used in games, but of which are found in the U.S., much like Colorado's cities as being one of them, I think that Reflections can help create the best coming from that particular location and turn into a place that is both great for its realism, driving, and exploration. After developers have seen or even used many locations coming from those of our world, which I don't expect very time soon, developers will need to possibly move onto working with their own worlds as it will be the only option left to innovate and create an original piece of work.

I'm glad that you, too, InsaneDriver06, love the idea of Colorado's cities. Denver or Colorado Springs would be really nice locations for the game. Since Denver isn't as big as NYC, which GTA IV will be using, I think that Reflections can try to fit in more than one city from Colorado and help make it bigger than GTA IV's Liberty City as well as helping to improve it to feel a lot more alive and full of freedom for you to go anywhere and do practically anything, either by vehicle or on-foot.

Well whatever it is, I sure hope the next Driver games are just set in the United States (like Driver 1, 76, and PL). Foreign cities screwed up the Driver style (at my point of view). Please don't say I'm selfish. Hell, even if I lived outside of the United States, I'd still support having just the USA in the next Driver games. The point is, no foreign cities please, Reflections. Driver is about America, we should have learned that from the first.


One not-so-familiar city that Reflections should maybe take a look at is New Haven, CT, USA (and its surrounding towns in New Haven County). I live just outside of New Haven. And it would look cool in a driving game. Like there are hills (even San Francisco style hills), drawbridges, freeways, beaches, marinas, train lines, harbors, countryside, urban areas, suburban areas, residential areas, etc. I won't cry if New Haven isn't in the next Driver game, but it would be unique and fun.

Assaultmachine1
07-21-2007, 01:39 PM
I absolutely agree with you, Driverman2006 on not having the cities take place elsewhere, but the U.S. and that's practically what I've mentioned in many of the posts mine that concern the locations that need to be in future Driver games. Now, if this was a different game with a new and original concept along with a developer that is not from the U.S., I could give simply no reason as to why they should have it set place in the U.S. as we need to see many new locations, outside of the U.S., be it in the continents of Asia, Africa, South America, Central America, Europe, or Oceania, as developers will be able to come up with a lot more for ideas in terms of bringing realism to their games. Simply making the experience be limited to only the U.S., regardless of the developer is not something that I would recommend. Although I am loyal to this country, the United States of America, I can say that even as a person loves his/her own country, they should not hesitate to only care for their country as helping out the rest of the world is also a big priority. It is a way that will help bring us to peace for a certain number of years (Mexico has been known to be in peace for over 200 years already, as told by my friend). Also, delivering something very new, much like the best developers today are doing, which can be said that offering a new never-before used city in a video game, is exactly the kind of idea out of many others that we need to see start happening more often.

InsaneDriver06
07-22-2007, 07:39 AM
It definitely seems like its time for a much more varied location, rather than continually relying on famous locations that don't always offer enough variety in terrain, and eventually get dull, as one street seems like the next, especially in large cities. Cities should be in the game, but there should also be rural winding backroads, suburbs, mountains, hills, etc as mentioned above.

A fantasy city could be interesting.

Driverman2006
08-19-2007, 04:25 PM
I don't think they'll ever do a fantasy city. That's one big thing that makes Driver more original than GTA. They've always done real cities, and they will probably [and hopefully continue] doing that.


One setting I really want Reflections to do someday in a future Driver game (or another game series) is Philadelphia, PA, USA in 1976. That would be VERY GROOVY!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif They say that Philly in '76 was the Grooviest place in the country (back in the 70s). I have seen movies set in the 70s and 80s in Philadelphia (like Rocky and Trading Places), and the grooviness still exists in those movies.

Wow- Necro-bump.

I think most of us were talking about New-York alternates back when D:PL was coming out. DriverMan aka Mr. Tanner was always about a 1 to 1 ratio New York, but a few of us were trying to think of a better spot. I could have sworn at one point in my ridiculously long crusade to get him to see that San Fran was the best choice that I called it 'the most iconic car chase city ever' or something like that. To hear Martin say those words back to us really, REALLY got my attention!

Renegade is basically DPL ported to 3DS, and from the looks of things, no on foot. Also more like Burnout. Doesn't look very good to me.

I think if I get a handheld this coming generation, I'll be going with Sony. I got a DS because my old Pokemon games couldn't save anymore, and I needed my fix, but every other game I got for that thing sucked. And now I'm tired of Pokemon again, haha.

Also the Vita is more likely to get a 3D GTA game on it, and hopefully Driver as well

San Francisco was a great choice thanks to the big thrills from all of the hills. Nothing like flying through the air, coasting over a row of cars and slamming back to the ground. I was playing D1 in SF. Overlooking the ocean should be a sight when way up on the hills.

Yeah, a unique location like Denver, Colorado and the outlying mountain freeways would be awesome. One of these days... NFS: Pursuit on the PS1 had a big mountain level that was well done but could be expanded on.

Is the Vita in 3D? I didn't read that in the first previews. That would be interesting. All it really takes for the developer is to add 2 cameras instead of one, and adjust as needed for a good 3D effect. The 3D in Street Fighter 3DS was impressive. I really liked the alternate fixed depth view the game offered too instead of just a side view. Very cool.

No, its not 3d, sorry. I meant a GTA game like the console games. I realise that the "Stories" saga exists on PSP, which is like the console version. A lot of people want a San Andreas Stories. Its been so long though, I think it'd need a big overhaul to be worthwhile. They'd be better off just putting GTA5 on it and letting us interchange save files between it and PS3

Previous Driver Cities I would NOT want to see:
LA - Everyone has it
NY - Same deal
Vegas - Maybe they could do it more justice now, but the desert has always seemed so boring to me. It was semi-enjoyable in San Andreas though

Miami, I always love a tropical setting, but we've already been back there, so why not Havana or Rio? Or another place in South America, San Pedro. Shift would be a fun tool on Death Road, no more of that annoying climb out of your car, swim to shore, walk up the stairs, get another car, etc etc. We could just shift into cars all day and drive them off a cliff!

Chicago or Detroit would be cool, I think it'd have to be in the 70's though

Nice or literally anywhere on the Mediterranean would be lovely.

I've never understood why they didn't just make up their own city. That way you could have beach front, alley ways, and jumps wherever you wanted them. They could bring interesting areas or features from other cities that inspired them. If they are only going to do one city, why not bring in every element you could ever want?

I agree, but I guess people like thinking they're in a real city.

I agree too. Better yet, make up a combination of all the real cities, but just include the best parts. It's not like any real city based in a game has ever been accurate to the point you can say, "Hey, there's my house!" I played Streets of LA, and although they claimed the streets were accurate, the stuff in them was hardly recognizable to when I was there.

Oahu included based on what other visitors have mentioned to me for TDU.

If a city is flat and square corners, how exciting can it be? More hills equals more thrills. Blend Colorado with San Francisco with Nice, France. Etc...

My Ideal City: (Its almost San Andreas)
------------------------------------------------
* A working volcano, flowing like the ones in Hawaii, but occasionally explosive, maybe with a cheat code.
* Caves that link together and branch out all over the city
* A snowy mountain, ice too, for sliding your car around.
* Plenty of trees and foliage, a Sasquatch?
* A windy road through the mountain(s), plenty of hairpin turns and deadly cliffs
* Hilly roads
* Tropical beachy area, with palm trees and such
* A city area, and small towns inland
* Desert, with top secret military stuff
* A river with rapid sections, waterfalls, and a flat section near the ocean. Lake at the top of the river, with Nessy?

I could probably go on for a while

I like real cities only for the landmarks and a real city in a driving game feels more authentic. But that's just me.

Yea the only Dodge Challenger in India, and you have to fight through a see of bicycles and motorcycles. And tuk-tuks maybe? Might be confusing my cities on that one.

I've never understood why they didn't invent a city either. Probably a relic of their 'worried it will be compared to GTA' days.
