I just downloaded GTA 2 and have the blast of a century.
I played it religiously back then on my PSX but never on PC until a few years ago and I was astonished how shitty the PSX port really was.
The PC version has shitty controller support though and I didn't want to look into programs until now and it's just like back then but a hundred times better!
I guess mostly because my english is finally good enough to understand everything.

Did you ever play it? What was your favorite gang? Best mission?
If you never played it, just give it a try! It's free by now and it's delicious!

That mission was modified for the PS1 version. In that version you pick up Krishna gang members instead of civilians. Can't believe all the years of playing the PS1 version I missed out on so much stuff like better graphics, no censored Taxi Drivers Must Die song, and trains, which are missing on PS1. Also the dusk setting, best way to play it.

DC version has some flaws:
No voiceovers like "JOB COMPLETE" and weapon/item pickups.

Cars lack headlights for whatever reason.

The radio resets every time you exit a car, which gets annoying.

Just random graphical glitches in general.

Still better than the PS1 version though that's for sure.

PS1 version is better because the PC version has some tedious missions.

Like missions where you have to kill a bunch of gang members, the kill quota is smaller on PSX. The larger kill quotas just make the missions take longer, not any harder.

Oh, you were serious? So you'd prefer a couple of easier (read: dumbed down) missions instead of way better graphics, multiplayer, no censorship, as well as trains and Mad Island, both of which were missing on the PS1 version? Nah, you weren't serious.

>> No.3495051

>dumbed down

The missions with the higher kill quotas aren't any cerebral or skillful. They're just longer and more tedious.

The censorship is a moot point for me (the one mission I'm thinking of is still in the PSX port--they just have you gathering gang members instead of civilians), trains aren't a big deal to me at all, and Mad Island has fuck all to do on it. It's seriously just an island with a bunch of angry gang members.

So yeah, gameplay being the most important part to me, PSX wins out for not making the game a borefest during certain missions.

>> No.3495114

>They're just longer and more tedious.
Sounds like you're just shit at them, m8. Can't help you there.

>gameplay being the most important part to me
The gameplay is the same, if not better on PC, only difference is PS1 just has those easier missions that you seem to have a hard-on for.

I get that you prefer the PS1 version. Maybe you're nostalgic for it since maybe that was the first version you played, but don't proclaim your preference as a fact when no one in their right mind would say the PS1 version is better when the PC version has so many clear-cut advantages.

I've explained that the missions are not harder, just longer. But of course you bring this down to /v/ level shitposting.

>The gameplay is the same, if not better on PC, only difference is PS1 just has those easier missions that you seem to have a hard-on for.

I said shorter and less tedious, not easier. Read for once.

>Maybe you're nostalgic for it since maybe that was the first version you played

Swing and a miss, Captain. First version I played was the PC version.

>but don't proclaim your preference as a fact
Where did I do this? When I said that I liked one game better? That's not presenting anything as fact, you idiot.

>when the PC version has so many clear-cut advantages

Yes, and I've already gone over why these additions mean little to nothing to me.

Something is incredibly ironic about telling me that my opinions aren't objective while spouting your own preferences like they are. You dense motherfucker.

>> No.3496935

>I said shorter and less tedious, not easier.
Making them shorter by lowering the kill quota is making it easier, dumbbell.

>Where did I do this?
>PS1 version is better
You should have started out with, "in my opinion, the ps1 version is better" or "I prefer the PS1 version because..."

>Yes, and I've already gone over why
No, you're stubbornly dismissing the PC version's advantages because of your autistic hard-on for a handful of easier missions. That single limp reason of yours shows that you're an irrational cunt.

>these additions mean little to nothing to me.
Dramatically better visuals, multiplayer, and even modding ability (which I left out previously) are pretty major advantages, but hey, you want your easier missions.

That word doesn't mean what you think it means.

>my opinions aren't objective
You said it, brother.

>You dense motherfucker.
Speaking of /v/ level shitposting...

This is some remdial shit. Any time a person states something that isn't objective, you are supposed to assume they are presenting their opinion.

Do you sperg out when someone says, "Oh yeah, that was a good movie!" too?

>> No.3497142

>Dramatically better visuals, multiplayer, and even modding ability (which I left out previously) are pretty major advantages, but hey, you want your easier missions.
And these are all pretty much subjective. Visuals are far better, but the multiplayer is lackluster enough that I went back to SP, and GTA2 hardly has any fun mods.

And by the way, do you feel some sort of accomplishment from a mission telling you to run over 50 guys as opposed to 15? And having to kill even more gang members to offset the ones you just killed just so you can accept the mission? This is the hill you're dying on? To spend about 5-10 extra minutes doing the same shit? Okay.


I know exactly what the word means, dipshit. You try to blast me for presenting my opinions as fact (I didn't) while at the same time acting as if your own opinions take precedent.

Go ahead and cook up your autistic response. I'm not going to read or respond to your retarded ass after this post.

Assuming makes an ass out yourself, which you've done an exemplary job of so far.

You realize you can mod those missions you seem so infatuated with to lower the kill quota as you see fit, right?

>do you feel some sort of accomplishment from a mission telling you to run over 50 guys as opposed to 15?
Do you feel that these missions are that much of a burden? It sounds like you just couldn't complete them, which explains why you support the easier PS1 version.

I mean, if you want to shitpost that's cool, but on the off chance you're not a complete cunt, the game is actually designed and balanced around turning speed. Removing turning would require a rebalance to make gangs and cops more lethal than they already are. Which is far more effort than anyone's willing to put in, apparently, since it doesn't exist.

The game is fine with turning. Might feel clunky to some, but it works perfectly fine with how the game was built from the ground up around it.
