Ok so GTA Vice City's looks are based pretty much totally on Scarface. And GTA SA has elements of Boyz In The Hood, Menice II Society and a tiny bit from Terminator. But what is GTA3 based on? I cant think of any movie elements in that game.

It's probably most based on The Godfather Trilogy.

GTA3 is probably based on on godfather like said by soap*.

Mainly because you work for a don and his mafia family.

GTA 3 has many movies mixed in with it (oh and you forget that several moments from San Andreas were Pulp Fictionish I really don't know where you're getting the Terminator)

The first portion of the game (The portland part) is fairly Godfather based as has been said.

The Staunton portion is a little bit like American Yakuza.

And this one is a shot in the darkness but I kind of see the Shoreside Vale portion as kind of an El Mariachi type thing (One man going against the Cartel)

GTA 3 is based on the movies Goodfellas and Heat.

she_falls, Vice City isn't based on Scarface, it has a small element of Scarface in it (the one room in the apartment building) and maybe a little more, it's more based on Miami Vice (mainly).
Miami Vice, Vice City: similar, don't you think? what about the undercover cops in the cheetah that come after you once you have a 3-star wanted rating, don't they remind you of someone (two people even) from the Miami Vice film, and what about that 'fastest boat', whose name i can't seem to remember right now.. Squalo?

back on topic.. i'd say Godfather is quite likely, as is Goodfellas.. because look on some of the billboards in SSV and the subway etc.. one advert that springs to mind is Badfellas, which imitates Goodfellas in a way.. so there ya go.

Are you kidding. vice city is based on scarface a lot!. the malabu club= babylon club, the chainsaw apartment room in vice=chainsaw scene in scarface.the last mission is a lot like the end of scarface except you live. tony mntana and tommy are both in the coke buissenus(sp?). In my opinion cortez is moddled after sosa from scarface. both of them are drug lords, and i also think diaz was a lot like tony. go to the officaial vice city website and read diaz's profile. tony and daiz are very simialer.

All the GTA's were slightly based off the Idea of Scarface...
If you think about it...
You start off as a nobody in a city that is yours for the taking...
By having a small connection you eventually become the most
famous underground murder/thief in the cities history...
