I wouldn't agree with you that you shouldn't play any of the other GTA's, I do agree with you on the fact that this one was the best one

I will never get the love this game gets. Its a huge improvement over 3, but San Andreas is that much of improvement over Vice.

That's fair, I just always struggled with the "humor" of the series apart from in this.

After IV/EFLC made guns actually feel like guns and not nerf toys, I have trouble going back to older GTAs.

I mean, VC/SA had superior soundtracks and stories, but IV/EFLC are just so mechanically beyond VC/SA. Argue all you want about how great Tommy or CJ were as characters, but I'll take mechanically superiority over flamboyant color and story.

it's an improvement but the guns on 4 are far from being realistic,
let me also mention that 5 was a downgrade in both shooting and driving from 4
>>
>>292177230
I never played 2 which people say is the best but SR3 left a sour taste in my mouth after finishing it. I even did it coop for added fun.
>>
>>292179047

>it's an improvement but the guns on 4 are far from being realistic,

Never said they were realistic, just that they felt closer to guns.

And even then, my bigger point is that after you've kneecapped people and watched them tumble down stairs clutching their heads to avoid cranial trauma, it's hard to go back to standing stock still listening to a rifle lightly pop until the other guy falls over with canned animation.

>>292177297
GTA V just feels like there is something missing, but I think that's due to not having any real antagonists. I thought it was about to go down when that Mexican cartel guy makes you pay for his girlfriends house, but you only hear from him and see him like 3-4 times and. The changing characters were alright, but you switch so often that you don't build a connection with them. I'd like a GTA game where you make your own character like how they have online, or even saints row and you have a rags to riches story. All the characters felt out of place, Franklin wanted to better himself, but was always doing fucked up shit. Trevor was just some depressed dude with a random personality, and Michael wanted to fix his relationship with his family, but kept doing the opposite and making it worse. I'm a good 60% done with the game And it just feels like there hasn't been any character development at all.

The drug dealing system is addictive.

Not entirely proud to admit, but I played the shit out of CW on my iPod Touch.

Nothing beat making big drug scores, then beating feet across the city to hole up away from the cops. I only wish they'd made a port of it for a real console, shit would have been so cash.
>>
>>292177297
the game's humor isn't in the cutscenes and yet it's still the funniest series out there thanks to the world and npc's and the dynamic chaos that ensues as you play; which is exactly how humor should work with games.
>>
Vice City Stories was just as good
>>
>>292179406
The lack of a real antagonist bugged me as well. Hell the lack of a real protagonist bugged me and there were fucking three of them. The only semi-interesting one was Michael and he was a cheap Max Payne rip-off.

I remember right at the start I was forced to cycle around as Michael with his stereotypical "gamer" son. Fuck I wanted to die.

It's pretty good. Takes some getting used to if you haven't played the older ones, since the top-down/isometric perspective can be annoying at times, but beyond that it's got a good story with a cool protag and a good amount of mission variety, plus drug dealing that hooks you in.

It works best with a bluetooth controller if you have one, and it's easily the best mobile game I've ever seen.
>>
>>292181181
I think it does especially with some of the earlier GTA missions. Plenty of Vice City missions have aged considerably

>Lovefist limo mission
>Mounted helicopter gun missions
>All of the shooting missions with stationary enemies and scripted enemies rolling out of cover
>Anarchy mission with the bikers
>Toy helicopter mission

None of these are at all interesting anymore and wouldn't stand up today.

So, what do you guys make of this?

It drove me up a wall because I consider myself a feminist and this bullshit cherry picking in the video is the stupidest shit ever

I won't link the video so you people don't yell at me
>>
>>292181863
It is a little dated, though I still think it holds up enough to recommend that it's worth playing for someone getting into the series.

>>292180121
I really enjoyed liberty city stories and TLAD.
I guess I'm just different.
>>
>>292182219
if anything, one should play VC before playing new entries because of shit like this >>292182153

the older controls and shooting mechanics would make it a lot harder for new players to get into if they are experienced with the more recent additions.
>>
>>292182153
I agree it's dated, it can take longer for me to get into a game when it's a tad-older. After a while out-dated mechanics stop bothering me though.
>>
>>292176713
Probably. SA and IV were the two best games in the series.

I'm with you OP. VC Is and will always be my favourite. Don't get me wrong I liked all of them since 3, but VC just makes me comfy.

>>292182891
It's a shame it's out-dated mechanics which where a bit clunky in the first play pull the game down.

Play it with a controller, no joke, it fixes everything.

If you got a 360/PlayStation controller, look into GInput.

I think the only legitimate complaint they ever mention is the lack of good female characters.

I am of the hot opinion that in the next GTA at least one of the playable characters in the story should be a girl, I think that would go a long way to bite every one of these nitpicking idiots in the ass.

One of them made a fucking blog post about why she 'hates video games' because they 'appeal to to the male fantasy'

I thought all of these accusations where debunked for being uber-retarded?
>>
>>292182868
GTAIII had better missions and mission givers than Vice City in my opinion. If one of the GTA games gets redone I hope it's this I feel like it has the most to benefit from a makeover.

Vice City is too focused on representing the 80s and SA already has a lot of the features the more recent GTA games have.
>>
>>292183364
I guess that would make sense, everyone can be a murderous psychopath.
>>
>>292183364
I hope they just add one female and keep the multiple protag idea going. With all the FIB and other agencies going on I don't think it would be that hard to add a believable female character without making her some empowered dyed hair 20 something alternative girl.
>>
>>292184093
I'm not sure about that.
The multi-protagonist thing just made all the characters dull, none of them got fleshed out.

Alternative chicks would be liable to commit crime...who knows?
>>
>>292177603
I disagree somewhat. The only thing that almost ruined San Andreas was Sweet shitting on Carl.
>>
>>292184093
No one wants to play the game as Karen. She's unlikeable. Maybe that female driver or Paige Harris would do.
>>
>>292176713
>GTA V was San Andreas so GTA VI can be GTA VIce City

You faggots know this is going to happen. They've made HD versions of every ajor city besides Vice City. I just wish they'd focus on other locations than HD-ified shit they've made in the past.

This is why Red Dead will infinitely be more interesting as a sandbox series, since they can literally create any new location and call it the west as long as it feels like the west. GTA is too established to try anything new.

Not only that, but Rockstar hinted that GTA: Online is the future the series is heading towards, so no more singleplayer GTA and say hello to always online GTA MMO riddled with micro transactions.

LC in III looks nothing like the LC in IV.

When will devs learn that we DO NOT want motherfucking MMOs
Just give us a decent single-player experience for the love of God.

I'm still yet to properly play Red Dead, but it does seem to be much less unrestrained.

>>292185796
Good thing they were set years apart then.

>>292185796
They're still just variations. The series hasn't gone anywhere new since London.

>>292184093
>make female protag
>HAVE to make her a lesbian because no male strippers or prostitutes in the game

It just seems like unless you want restricted features and gameplay mechanics as a woman protag, it would be a rocky path I can see Rockstar not wanting to take. Or they might just to stir controversy, who knows
>>
>>292179446
ah yes, i think that's one of the best minigames in the whole GTA series
>>
>>292186249
It will take more than a female protagonist if Rockstar hope to stir controversy.

Oh wait, it's GTA.
