The only things it has going for it are its soundtrack and SOME of its voice acting. I could understand a 10-year old having a ball with this in the summer of 2003, but how does anyone with taste find artistic merit in this piece of shit?

He’s not wrong though. For years I thought this was the best in the PS2 trilogy but going back to it today it’s clear that I only liked it because I was a le wrong generation kid and obsessed with the 80s a decade before it was cool.
III is the only one still worth playing, and even then it’s mainly only for the gritty late 90s pre-9/11 new york setting.

Bought a PS2 specifically for this game. Was not disappointed at the time.

No shit you go back and play a 20 year old game and feel like it wasn’t magic given what’s available today. If you didn’t play this at release and knew what was available at the time, it’s kind of moot to argue it’s relevance.

But it was shit back then too, if you had discerning taste and weren't easily impressed by a vapid open world and 80s aesthetic. By 2002, we had FAR better racers, shooters, and story-driven games. Being a subpar jack of all trades is nothing impressive.

It's a decent game, it's just the awkward middle child of the series. GTA3 is legendary for being innovative although a bunch of the mechanics sucking the the presentation being very bare bones, San Andreas was the magnum opus that took everything to the next level and fixed a lot of the shitty parts. Vice city just plays like a new map and mission set for GTA3, everything it added was either presentation (like proper story and radio) or inconsequential and easy (like buying properties or changing clothes).

It's not overrated, its flaws are regularly discussed and usually gets compared to San Andreas. What usually gets rated highly in Vice City is the atmosphere and aesthetics, if the 80s are your thing then no other game does it better.
>Itty bitty city with almost nothing to do it and no personality other than blasting neon at you in 1/4 of the map

whenever people talk about vice city and how its the best in the series, the only thing they ever mention is the fucking soundtrack, which proves that the game doesnt have that much going for it. with san andreas people actually remember the story and the missions. there was also gta vice city stories which was much better than the original game which none of the vice city fanboys even played.

None of the GTA games are actually good. They were spectacles. The sense of scale, and controversy caught people's attention, but there's not much actually there in terms of good gameplay.

VC is strange in that they made the missions better and in the process ended up making them worse. GTA3's missions were almost entirely 'driver here, drive back' or 'drive here, have fight, escape' which was boring as fuck but fit perfectly with how limited the mechanics were. In Vice City the missions got more involved and varied but the shooting, movement and AI didn't improve so more of the missions are super frustrating.

The consensus has always been that Vice City was the best GTA story mode of 6th gen. San Andreas might have been nigger with more things to do, 3 might have been more innovative, but Vice City is the culmination of the GTA ideal. The style, the music, the story, the parodies, everything works together. The setting is the most recognizable and parodiable, everything was awesome and unironic.
The only reason someone might prefer SA is that they have been raised since small children to worship ghetto culture and hip hop crap, like zoomers.

Seems like a cope. I had zero interest in the story when it was announced, having lived through the 90s in California and had more than enough of that shit. I recall literally groaning when I read the description of what it was going to be about.
But I'll be damned if CJ and his buddies didn't win me over in spite of my dislike of all that ghetto shit. They're solid characters and the story of CJ's journey up from the ghetto and out into the world was fun and engaging.
On top of that the world is massive, the gameplay is more solid, and the missions are better. It's all around a bigger, better, more polished game than VC, much as I also love VC.

What Vice City did at the time was complete what was unfinished in GTA 3. Motorcycles, proper flying vehicles and targeted vehicle damage. The 80s setting gives people more reason to play it than if it was just a slightly improved GTA 3.
All the GTA3 trilogy games have kino settings, the 80s, the early 90s and GTA3 which was just supposed to be the current day is now 2001 in New York before 9/11. In comparison 4 and 5 take place in soulless time periods no one will ever give a fuck about.

And that's because the map is a stupid garbage flat line with no height difference at any point, even III had a more interesting and complex map.

>the feel is more arcade-y

Arcade feel is a personal taste, not a valid point.

>there's things like rampages

I can agree it's something that GTA have been missing for a while now, but to be fair, getting gang territories in SA is the equivalent of that, more immersive and realistic than picking skull and suddenly a bunch of Haitians niggers spam in the city stadium.

>drugs that slow down time

Max Payne slow down was better executed than that garbage in VC. The gun play in VC is bare bones so a slow motion thing wasn't really needed or fun to play with.

Gameplay is much better on VC too, good tip

PC version is best version for both games.

Vice City plays perfectly on mouse + keyboard, you can aim with the mouse, walk with WASD, run with shift and jump with space like any FPS/TPS. It's been perfectly ported.

SA on the other hand awkwardly tries to play just like the console version. Can't hold a button to run, have to mash spacebar with your thumb while you control with your other fingers. Can't walk and shoot like VC, need to stop and then aim for no reason, because it was made for joypads that are inferior at aiming and then converted improperly.

Well 99% of players experience both VC and SA on PC yet no one these days ever talks about the control issues with mouse and keyboard that feel like a massive downgrade. I remember how weird it was back when the PC port of SA was released, it was discussed on forums and magazines. Is really no one else today bothered?

It was pretty decent and I managed to finish the story. The atmosphere was really cool.
Only 13 year olds were creaming their pants about this.

I played all three on the PS2, so yeah, the mouse controls were really weird, specially on VC. It was weird not having auto-aim. You can turn it on by going into Controls and choosing Classic. However that precludes you from turning the camera around with the mouse - worst of both worlds.

>GTA III

>GTA Vice City

>GTA San Andreas
can swim and dive

that aside,
even though i started with III, i still consider IV the best for it's revamped engine (even though no usable planes), and i regard SA as a 2nd best for its firearms, aircraft, and expansive space for either exploration or just cruising about.

sticking to the /vr/ graded titles, i'd still choose San Andreas over Vice City over III. their releases gradually improved.
realistically speaking, GTA is overrated.

I had Vice City, and played it to completion. I liked it because I was 14, but in retrospect, it was pretty shit. I wouldn't return to it. I'd rather play DMC3, MGS3, Metroid Prime, F-Zero GX, Resident Evil 4, Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, any number of excellent games that came out in that same window of time.

>And that's because the map is a stupid garbage flat line with no height difference at any point, even III had a more interesting and complex map. Besides aren't you forgetting that there is a loading point between each island? Which SA doesn't have at any point aside from exiting or entering buildings.
loading takes like 2 seconds and obviously the game that was made later on with more development time is going to be technically superior, point is after like 30 minutes of story all of vice city is open whereas SA you have to play for hours and the game will punish you for trying to explore ahead of where you're meant to be.
>Arcade feel is a personal taste, not a valid point.
literally all discussion of this thread is anons exchanging their personal taste about GTAs
>Both plots are ... the same.
>MC is being bullied by obviously main antagonist, you have to do dirty job for him and then he will try to kill MC later on, this while nigger partner is a snake that ends up betraying you ...
plots are not remotely the same, unless you think every crime story with a protagonist, antagonist and villain is the same. Tommy Verctti becomes a mafia coke baron wheras cj is trying to avenge his mother, free his brother and does shit like steal jetpacks for secret government agencies ffs

because there was less to them. they're still pretty open in vc and SA, they just have more specific objectives so it feels like your character is doing actual tasks. Was it IV or V that they started failing you for not following the mission brief to the letter?

VC had an absolutely star-studded cast that most movies can only dream of: Ray Liotta, Dennis Hopper, William Fichtner, Gary Busey, Tom Sizemore, Luis Guzman, Burt Reynolds, Debbie Harry, and even Jenna Jameson as Candy Suxxx!
SA had a few greats too: SLJ, Chris Penn (shortly before his death), Peter Fonda, but everyone did a great job DESU.

>> No.8914310

I have never played a GTA game for the story, while i have completed all of them i don’t remember any of the stories. Most of my time was spent causing chaos and using cheats. Its a crime simulator for those that dont want to spend time in prison. My favorite thing about VC was the blood/water spatter on the screen, like when you chainsaw people on the floor. Killing strangers, stealing cars and blowing up cops with grenades and rocket launchers and then getting away is where the thrill in these games lies.
