Always been a fan of the series. But San Andreas with all the hood and rnb stuff sucked. Got enough of that on MTV already. Hope next game is more like Liberty City, or better, like GTA2.

I'll be looking forward to this myself.
I do hope they've chosen a better era and setting this time though.
I mean I enjoyed tha hood, and CJ was pretty cool, but I just don't want them to repeat it. I know it'll sound hypocritical of me, but I'd rather them repeat the proper gangsters and mafia stuff, I just prefer it.

Looking forward to seeing the sound track too.

GTA 3 was a masterpiece. Vice City and San Andreas just regurgitated the same ideas into a new look. Nothing will ever match GTA 3.

I thought that the crime in GTA:SA was pretty organized. But I know you mean that you prefer larger-scale criminal organizations. It doesn't make a difference for me either way.

San Andreas is the best GTA game becous of the big citys you can explore.

I agree with Coneman, as usual.

Lodat is an idiot, as usual. Vice City and San Andreas really advanced the gameplay.

This looks amazing. I'm assuming it's PS3? Finally I want one.

It's on both the Xbox360 and the PS3... but buy the PS3 if you're going to choose. Why? Well, come on now, I shouldn't have to answer that question...

03-30-2007, 02:33 AM
The trailer looks awesome, I bet it won't look like that in actual gameplay. But they'd better release it for PC too. Or else... I'd be really disapointed. I hate the PS3, they also took COD3 away from the PC.

As for GTA4 though, I hope they kept the map size about the same as GTA SA, and focused more on realistic features. I found it to be weird that there are several runways but you'd only need 1/15th of it to get off the ground.

God no. The gameplay in GTA: San Andreas was so sloppy, it was unbearable. Sure, it did get better all-in-all, but GTA 3 was a classic.

God no. The gameplay in GTA: San Andreas was so sloppy, it was unbearable.

Clarify.

The control system was a vast improvement over all previous installments, making it the most playable game yet. I could actually target the enemies I wished to kill. I could actually survive long periods of time without saving. I could finally swim, for fuck sake. The vehicle selection was the best yet, there was no loading between zones, the difficulty level was a perfect blend between challenge and fun.

Sure, I could make a few minor criticisms, but they're just that; minor. Overall it was easily the best GTA game, as it should be. Vice City was my favourite, but I can admit that San Andreas is better.

So how about you actually explain what was so bad about it, instead of making vague statements that make you look like a total dumbfuck. Did you even play San Andreas?

On GTA3 (and vice city???) you can activate birds eye. And on San Andreas yoiu have "cinematic" which is similar but hard to control with.

Grand Theft Auto, the first one, for PC, takes me way back... Run over those orange jump suit guys!

GTA3 was obviously a landmark title for a lot of reasons that have already been stated. However, novelty--in my books--doesn't reserve a permanent throne for a game. I would say that SA definitely trumped GTA3, as it should; shouldn't the game developers be making a better game out of an existing franchise? This reminds me of the Goleneye/Perfect Dark argument. Yeah Goldeneye came first, but you're lying to yourself if you can't admit that Perfect Dark is literally Goldeneye but better.

In any case, I am highly displeased that the GTA franchise moved to consoles as the primary platform. I was really mad about it when GTA3 came out and took like a year to come out on PC.

First of all, i'm not saying it was a bad game. It was one of the best games from the sandbox genre.

I said that i preferred GTA 3 was because it was a classic. Much better than the first two, the one i played with the most, before GTA: San Andreas so i couldn't compare it back then, etc.

You could target in any game. The targeting system was so easy too. Run around, target on a guy far away, kill him... now do that again. it was easier than the rest, which you said. i hate when a game's too easy. Nobody needs swimming. that was worthless as it was tiresome. the vehicles were good, i'll give you that. yeah, there's no loading in almost all of the sandbox games. there was nothing difficult in that game. NOTHING.

I never said it was bad. It's way better than GTA 3 but i like GTA 3 much more. San Andreas improved alot of things, and did most better - but GTA 3 was a classic.

From what I'm getting, you mostly prefer GTA3 because of the principle of it, and not so much the gameplay itself.

Like, you're suggesting that San Andreas shouldn't get so much credit because it's simply a bigger, better version of GTA3.

No. Like he said, Vice City is his favorite, but he thinks San Andreas is better. Same here, except with GTA 3.

You could target in any game.

I'm only going to bother responding to this part, because the targeting always annoyed me. In the older games it was so difficult to target the guy you actually wanted if there were multiple guys around. And it was the most frustrating way to get killed.

I just started trying to play Liberty City Stories and was dismayed to find it's a big piece of poo. I'm guessing they changed nothing in converting it from the PSP to PS2. The graphics suck, and the controls suck. It reminded me how much better San Andreas is than all the ones before it.

I ran up to about 3 or 4 guys and started attacking them. With no way to change my target, I kept locking on to the one I had already knocked down while the others shot me. It's ridiculous.

Yeah, but in San Andreas they really didn't changed that, IMO.

wheelchairman: because if you don't target, it's a pain to shoot someone. The driving sucked, like most GTA titles. Swimming sucked, etc. This is my opinion, you probably wont agree.

On the first point your opinion is completely invalid, because no matter what you think, they did change it, you could cycle through your targets with the shoulder buttons, and it made shit so much better.

Also your other points all apply to your beloved GTA3, only more so.

That's exactly why. GTA 3 was before GTA: San Andreas, so the issues were understandable. San Andreas did the same thing, which was bad but was still a great game.

Lodat, the better-targeting system is a feature that should be there.

If the targeting system in GTA3 made it harder, than that's not exactly a good thing. The difficulty should be made by other creative ways, not by faulty control set-ups.

And you're saying GTA3 is the best because it was a classic? That's dumb. If Vice City or San Andreas came out before it, those would be regerded as classic as well.

If they took out guns there'd still be plenty to do in the game too.

Since when is it about quantity? Flying planes was one of the most fun aspects of San Andreas. There might be lots of other things to do, but damn it I liked doing that.

0r4ng3
04-12-2007, 11:15 PM
I guess you're right. It might not be a big deal to me because I wasn't a big fan of the planes in the previous GTAs.

But, on the other hand, guns are much more important to GTA than planes. I would equate the lack of planes to, say, the lack of bicycles.

I loved the planes on GTA san andreas, especially the jet fighter, I think it would be a shame if they didn't put planes in liberty city. The planes give the game another dimension, and they open new options for missions.

Nobody needs swimming. that was worthless as it was tiresome.

The reason I was happy to see swimming in GTA:SA, and i assume Paint_It_Black was also, because it meant falling into the water no longer meant instant death. In the games up until SA there was no way to escape death once in the water, which was very irritating having just escaped a fully armed mafia gang while the police chased you in helicopters, only to try to hop into a boat, fall into the water and simply drown. Such a pathetic way to die. The ability to swim was a god send.
