GTA V Random Characters/Pedestrian/Stranger missions

41 posts in this topic

We had these "random" encounters with strangers in GTA IV and even RDR with people giving us stupid little side missions to complete, so will this continue in GTA V? Many of them had an actual life that progressed (or deteriorated) as the game went on which made it interesting to do them and see where their lives went.

OPx just gave me a good idea for one: We find an up-and-coming actress who ends up doing porn. (fits perfect in Vinewood) We could end up rescuing her from that lifestyle later or she ends up making it big in porn.

So what other kinds of these side missions would you like to see or think will fit in GTA V?

The ones from GTA IV were more fixed with certain characters, which I thought worked well. In RDR, they were more dynamic but I found them quite repetative such as saving a woman/man from a pack of coyotes. If both elements were included it would be nice, along with some more complex side missions rather than just driving someone to the hospital or shooting a couple of badguys.

In RDR we had the stranger side missions which were akin to those in GTA IV. But what you are referring to are the random encounters, such as the ones where people ask you for a ride into town and then steal your horse, or the one you mentioned with the coyotes.

i would love to see random dynamic things in GTA... maybe a traffic back up because of an accident, a high speed car chase, a random crazy man firing off his gun in front of a store, or a guy threatening to jump off a building while the fire eept. talks him out of it...

could be cool...

Oh right, well regardless I still think it's a pretty good idea.

Yeah I guess using "encounters" and "RDR" in the same sentence wasn't a good choice. :P

The thing is the ones you are talking about aren't random, they happen at a certain location and time. They are just side quests in that sense. A random encounter in GTA V would be somebody stealing your car while you're sitting at the side of the road, or somebody trying to mug you (gimme your wallet! ala GTA 2.) Or perhaps a random shootout between two gangs that you could join in.

I'd like to do a random character mission for that hobo, Jerry Kapowitz, who finally ended up with the diamonds at the end of TBoGT. :D

He moved to Vice City to open up a gunstore didn't he? Perhaps we will see him then, presuming GTA VI is in VC.

EDIT:

More on topic.

I would like there to be a lot of different random encounters, such as:

-Being Mugged (but not all your money obviously if you fail at smokin' that mo'fo'.)

-Being car jacked (maybe, although this wouldn't be good at all if you spent 50k pimpin' yo' ride and some asshole came and jacked it)

-Getting into gun fights ( just simple ones)

-Enemy gang members attacking you (presuming the character is in a gang)

-More, but nothing else came to the top of my head.

-Just watching other peds go through the same stuff as you, THAT would be amazing and add a lot of realism to the game.

I know my topic sentence is horrible but does anyone remember the little green icons in GTA IV and you go to them and they need a ride por something. Will this be in GTA V.

Also to make it more realistic mabey you could:

: give people money (homeless)

: some body got rob and ask you for help

: possible find a lost dog (Reward$)

: help some people move stuff.

These are little things that happen in everyday life. They may get you some money and mabey a friend or they could be annoying like the people who call to much in GTA IV (Roman).

Well, if you knew the topic title was bad, why didn't you fix it slim?

I'm not sure what your topic was about since it was so poorly written, but I'm assuming that it has some distant relation to random character interactions. If this is the case, then yes I am a fan, and see no reason why they would take them out of the game.

I don't give the homeless money, and I got better things to do to than search for someone's dog, especially when about to kill an FBI informant, so I dont see how that makes the game more realistic

Finally, if your not going to attempt to write legibly, don't bother typing. And that's how you deal with a new member.

Well, I don't see the point in merging them, especially when the previous topic hadn't recieved a reply in two months, but that's mods with nothing better to do for you

, but i think random peds should try to kill you like in the movies

I added something constructive, fine gentleman. Well, comparatively to you, big man. As a professional, you should wipe that smirk off your post, sir.

I was just thinking if they bring back r3 missions, when your drive the taxi peds could randomly attack you in a robbing.

This topic (and the one merged into this) isn't about the R3 side missions such as the taxi. This is about the side missions involving people you meet a few times during the game. Eddie Low and Badman in GTA IV are examples.

Yeah, but if a pedestrian you picked up suddenly robbed you, that would be a random pedestrian encounter, dur

My iPhone thinks your ass is pound-ready
