In between fixing annoying computer problems at work today, Sam and I discussed a very important topic – one which any self-respecting Grand Theft Auto fan has almost certainly contemplated at some point in their life… What would happen if a GTA game was made in their hometown – in our case, Bath.

Bath is a small city, and having played the massive San Andreas on the PlayStation 2, I feel confident that it would be possible to map the whole of the town, including shops, streets, landmarks, etc into one single game – especially with the technological advances now offered by the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Bath is a historical city, and would offer many opportunities and new ideas for GTA game designers. Here are a few we thought up…

  • All new vehicles including hot air balloons, bendy buses, canal boats, city tour buses and horse taxis
  • Locations including Bath Abbey, riverside and tow path, city centre, Bath Rugby ground, Bath City F.C., Victoria Park and the Roman Baths
  • New enemies including Twerton chavs, charity workers, tramps and rugby fans
  • When you get arrested (or “busted”), you would re-appear outside Bath Police Station in town.
  • Getting killed (or “wasted”), would re-spawn you outside A&E at The Royal United Hospital.

The possibilities are endless. If by some chance, an employee of Rockstar is reading my blog, why not make the next GTA game in the series (after IV) set in Bath – you know it makes sense – I even designed a front cover for the game!

    I think that would be a funny idea. My Grampy built some buildings in Bath up in the coombes down area.

    Nice to know I'm not the only fan of Leeds form the Bath area. (I actully live in Canada, but the family connection is Bath)

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
