I'm replaying GTA III on my PS4 right now and I can't believe how much fun it is compared to the newest entries, GTA IV and V.

It's missions are perfectly designed, Liberty City feels like a true city instead of a videogame-y one, the radio stations are great (despite not having that many songs), the factions and characters are fantastic.

I could go on and on... Why is III so much better than IV and V, /v/?
>>
GTA lll on ps4?
Is SA in the store?
>>
>>324198638

Yep. All three PS2 GTAs are being sold at the digital store. I think there's a deal this week where you can get all three for $15 or something.

Take off your fucking nostalgia goggles for just a second, and you can see that the early GTA games, not only aged like garbage, but were never good to begin with.
>>
>>324198442
Are you serious

It aged terribly
>>
>>324199221
Nah you're full of shit I play all the old GTA games yearly and they're just as good ad the first time.
>>
>>324198442

It encouraged mayhem and exploration through "gamey" pickups which were fun. The roads were straighter which meant you felt like you could race through the streets (unlike Vice City).

There's no saving you, clearly. The game looks like shit visually and the gunplay is fucking abysmal. Chase segments, like in every GTA game with them, are inexcusably horrible. You're a fucking nostalgia faggot if you don't think any of that is true.
>>
>>324199225
>>324199221

GTA III has aged like wine, my friends. It perfectly ties with GTAs I and II, the only 3D GTA game that actually matches the vibe of the originals (which were great).

Vice City, San Andreas and V feel like spin-off titles, while IV is a failed attempt at making a "real GTA" game.
>>
>>324198442
I tried to play this after starting with Vice City. Just couldn't get past the lack of a pause menu map, made navigation a nightmare. I can't imagine how long it took people to beat Paramedic back in the day, you'd have to actually memorize the entire city map just to know which route to take.

You are calling someone else nostalgic while praising the most overrated game of the decade.
Hand iv to a new gamer and they'll spit in your face.
>>
Remember when GTA III came out for PC and it caused a shitstorm because the specs were so high at the time that tons of people were having trouble playing it properly.

The gameplay's aged like shit and it's hard to play it now with the limited weapons, shit aiming, non locational damage and weird driving. BUT it's also a very entertaining game in terms of story and missions. It's a shame.

GTA: SA still hands down the best

when you really get into the cities of these games you start to remember the areas pretty well and you dont even have to think about it.

I can only speak for 3, VC, and SA since 4, and 5 are a bit more detailed and larger.

Nice image macro, sweet cheeks.

Does anyone know if they tweaked the FPS?
I tried playing San Andreas a bit back on Steam, but the game was locked at 24 FPS. You could unlock it, but it broke the game mechanics.
>>
GTA III starts sucking hard once you leave Portland; the two other islands are boring as fuck
>>
>>324201181
Saying it isn't perfect is the biggest understatement I've ever heard.
Shooting is shit
Story is shit
Driving is Satan
World design is shit
The only thing its got going for it is the graphics.
>>
>>324201591

Not sure. They made it 1080p, but kept the same graphics of the PS2 version. For instance, the PS3 version of GTA San Andreas has higher texture resolution than the PS4 one, since the PS4 is based on the original while the PS3 one is based on the PC / iPad re-releases.

GTA3 remains my favorite all around. Being so unpolished in key areas is what gives it its own charm.

Which wasn't intentional. They did the best they could.

Easily my favorite soundtrack next to Liberty City Stories.

Yeah, Metal Gear Solid 1. It's a great game, but after a certain point that I cannot recall right now, it just starts to fall apart. With every boss except Raven being shit on the second disc, with the horrible, horrible backtracking during the card section, the goddamn awful Liquid fight, and that abysmal turret section at the end, the game just doesn't end nearly as strongly as it started.

I've upgraded my machine, and I'm still not happy with the way the PC port runs. GTAV runs better than that ugly game.

You can't be fucking serious. . .
As let down as I was by gta5, the one thing it got right is capturing the feeling of actually being in a real city.
>>
>>324212187

Eh, the stuff is still largely there as far as I understand, or at least things like car deformation was just subdued a bit. Things like peds dropping their weapons is turned off for whatever reason, maybe for performance reasons if that would have any impact on it
>>
>>324212581

I think the city has a pretty poor layout, and not enough blocks. Even if they had just thrown in some meaningless filler houses, it would be better than just going under that bridge and being in Compton, when you can still see downtown just past the highway. By the layout I mean that it's really easy driving through the entire city on like one street, which makes it feel smaller than it should. The street level detail is there though
>>
I liked the more cartoonish look from the PS2 games.
They got 2srs4me on the PS3 era. I mean, BoGT and V do have alot of humor, but it's alot more realistic humor, not the cartoony wacky stuff from III and VC. SA was sort of in between.
>>
>>324212663
>largely there
Not really
All the minor things and attention to details are out. Even some fun engine stuff like water physics and limb damage.

No it isn't you fucking retard.
There are mods specifically made with the function to port textures and models from the Xbox version to the PC because the PC ports are ports from the PS2 versions which were lower quality. It's a fact.
>>
>>324212934

The style has gotten progressively more real, even between III and VC there's a noticeable difference in characters. And the artwork too, GTA3 artwork has cartoony proportions while SA has a more realistic style. And then they just went all out with IV
>>
>>324212967

Oh wow I totally forgot you could move sideways on a ledge in IV. I don't think I ever used it but there's not really any reason not to have it
>>
>>324198828
This is actually true.
>>
IV is the Martin Scorcasce of the series, V is the Michael Bay
>>
>>324212967
What's with games and suddenly not having limb damage anymore? Shits annoying, I love torturing people like that.

Also holy shit at those differences. Why are we going backwards in everything besides graphics in gaming?
>>
>>324213108

Agreed.

I still think VC looks and feels kind of cartoony. But yeah, you can feel they wanted to go out the more realistic approach since after III. Which I dont understand why. GTA worked best when they were fictional cartoony mayhem games.

Taking the random pills you find in the PS2 games that slow the game down and punching the fuck out of people was really fun.
Does V even have cheats? It just occurred to me that I didnt even try ONCE to put any cheats. Thats something I did all the time on the PS2 games.
>>
>>324213717

It does but they're on timers. And I don't think there really are any particularly wacky ones
>>
>>324213860

Wow. Thats what I'm talking about.

V is fun, but they take out the fun stuff out of them in favor of more realistic things. It's shit.
>>
>>324214013

To be fair, Trevor has that slowdown punching mode by default. But yeah it's not what it used to be

>>
>>324198442
Basically the ps2 era GTAs were the best. 3 good, vice city better, San Andreas best.

4 was good too
>>
The thing about GTA III that the sequels understandably forgot was how simple it was. You had up to 3 story missions at a time - everything else you had to find in the world. No one's buzzing you on your phone to bowl, there's no stock market meta to worry about, no weapon/car upgrades, no overabundance of side missions, no cosmetics (unless you really want to count skins in the PC version), no complicated cover/aiming system, no RPG elements, no turf wars - the list goes on.

It was as complicated as it needed to be.

As much as we like to nostalgiafag, Vice City began the tradition of cramming a GTA game with excessive features, which itself isn't a bad thing for a GTA sequel to do.
>>
>>324216757

Everyone would have gotten bored of GTA if they hadn't added stuff to it. Hell I'm kinda bored of the concept even with all the fun extra stuff
>>
>>324198442

Because at some point rockstart forgot they were making video games. I would say 4 was where it took that turn for the worse.

I liked GTA IV's gameplay mechanics and the design of the world but the missions were garbage compared to previous games and that made it really lackluster for me

Man San Andreas was just perfect. The missions were great, story was exciting, the customization was just enough to satisfy that need in open world and man the graphics were not great at all but the all the stuff you could actually do. I tried playing vice city agian a few months for the nostalgia but it had definitely aged. Everything was lacking in one way or another. I play SA, discounting graphics , its what every sandbox style game should be. IV was disappointing but i could see why someone would take that over San Andreas. Some people don't like the aesthetic and want a more serious type of game but it wasn't me. Haven't played V for more than a couple hours but that still has a lot of the issues i had with Iv so i didn't really try to get into it. I'm happy with the experience because i know i always got that undeniable classic that is SA.

GTAIV didn't feel like the ps2 games so some people were put off but the story alone was enough for people to love it. I prefer it game play wise over V but V had much better missions.

I agree, the only good thing about GTA if you're not an edgy 8 year old cumming in your pants over the idea of being able to murder random people in a game is the ragdoll physics from IV. I've literally played it for hours just hitting people with a car and laughing my ass off.
