So, in your valid opinions, which do you think is the best GTA game?

The way I see it:
* GTA 1, 2 and London have no chance. They are pretty much miniclip games.
* GTA 3 Fantastic gameplay/graphics for it's time
* GTA Vice City perfect feeling, perfect game
* GTA San Andreas Heavy going, loads of features, yet very buggy.
* GTA IV, the revolution of GTA gaming, new engine, new scale of graphics yet I find it somewhat restrictive and bloated.

So which is my favorite, and why?
My favorite: GTA Vice City
Why? I was going to entitle this topic "GTA Vice City is the best GTA Game, but I decided against it, this is because it's always down to one person's opinion. Pretty much everything about GTA Vice City, to me, is fantastic. The shiny cars, the lively bustling beaches, exactly like a florida beach in the 80s. The music fit the game spot on, the cars hit the "Vice City" image perfectly. The storyline was fantastic, Miami Vice style drug smuggling, the guy with the Hawaiian shirt matching the scenery perfectly. Each mission follows on perfectly, there's no "EH, Where did he come from." The story includes increasingly fun missions, fantastic houses available to purchase, a mansion that you obtain once you kill the previous owner and businesses to take over as you gradually dominate Vice City.

As a side note, Rockstar were trying to create a "bustling city" in GTA IV, trying to make it feel like New York, After playing it for 2 years, I still don't feel that bustling feeling, It doesn't quite feel like a real city.

When walking through the mall in Vice City, I have that feeling, women with shopping bags, smartly dressed people walking into shops, Vice City managed that back in 2002.

In my honest opinion, nothing since Vice City has been able to compete with it. Sure it's old, the engine is old, the graphics look slightly old now, but hey, it was made in 2002.

And yes, this post was made in the year 2010, but I honestly believe that Vice City deserves the most credit for having, not just the best game, but the best atmosphere.

Any thoughts?

Yeah would be interesting to see GTA Vice City with GTA IV's engine.

Vice City. I think I played through it three times where the others had just one go each.

GTA IV best so far
post #6 of 51
EFLC is by far the best. The story wasn't great but I've spent countless hours on the multiplayer with mates. It never gets old. For the singleplayer IV was the best in my opinion, really enjoyed it.

Wasn't there a rumor that R* was making VC again using the Euphoria engine? I wonder what happened to that.

Yeah, I still play IV, no denying that I love it But I think Vice City still has the edge, the atmosphere and the whole scenery.

Rumor there will be San Andreas DLC for the IV.
It will be so awesome if they will make it!

My favourite is San Andreas, there was so much freedom, so much insanity. Only in San Andreas could you bomb around in the jetpack, then parachute down and steal a Hydra off the carrier and fly around for hours.

So much to do, oh and you could beat people to death with a double ended purple dildo in a gimp suit.
