personally i think the story in SA sucked. It started okay i guess then just went off on one. Ive seen worse but i've seen better too...
III's story was simplistic, Vice's was pretty good,
LCS and VCS were alright, but IV was the only story that hit on multiple levels i felt.

Yeah, because a gangster getting to fly military grade jetpacks and planes is a believable story. dozingoff.gif

GTA IV for me, second to TLaD's, and third Vice City's.

I chose SA. I loved how the SA storyline cleverly led you across the whole state, most of the missions were very unique while IV's was quite dull and repetitive for me to be honest. Just my opinion. I would choose VC as second as the time period blended in with the missions perfectly

I've played the top-down ones too and IMO they never really had much of a story to begin with. So I won't mention them. As for the remaining ones that I have played, here's my list from worst to best :

III : 1/10. Hated it form start to finish. Now before everyone storms my house and impales me with a wooden stake let me explain. True, the premise was quite nice. You get backstabbed in a robbery and now that you're free, you'll stop at nothing to get revenge even if it means having to work for dangerous underworld goons to get there. So, who were those guys that tried to help you get revenge? Sal? Nope. Kenji? Not a chance. El Burro? Don't make me laugh. Only Asuka helps you out and that also at the very end. Before that you're blowing up laundry vans, racing in the streets and collecting "memorabilia" in a crappy Rumpo. For what?
Maybe if the story tried to be a bit more logical it might have actually been the best. Whenever I think of III's story all I see is wasted potential.

SA : 8/10. Could've been my favorite, if it hadn't been drawn out so much. The missions in Red County with Catalina were a bore and the Casino/Heist missions really felt like the story was going off track. Thankfully the final missions documenting CJ's return to LS made up for that.

VC : 9/10. Neither too dragged out like SA nor as childish as III. Its not the best story I've seen but it's my personal favorite among the 3 that I've played.

There is no point arguing, it's not going to get you anywhere. The MODs will think it is going nowhere productive and might lock it if these abusive fights carry on. Just saying lol.gif

Dude, not everyone has the same opinion as you. And now that I think about it, maybe IV's storyline isn't that realistic either, but I like it more than San Andreas'.

Actually, yes. Why wouldnt the government use such men? Besides, CJ was working for the government himself. And anyone can hack into computers these days.

PS. I remember akbirdman telling to me that I was racist only cause I dont like CJ turn.gif

Alright everyone. Stop acting like little girls and flaming each other about SA and it's storyline. I don't care if you discuss the storyline, but do it like men. No more flaming.

I didnt like the story of San Andreas at all. I start with the protagonist: CJ, a grove street gangmember that escaped Los Santos and moved to Liberty City, leaving his friends and family alone. This is where it starts: What kind of p*ssy is this? I dont mean to flame anyone but CJ, unlike other GTA characters, was not a real man. Not only at the start but later in the storyline too. He was scared of Catalina. SCARED. SCREAMING. In real life, sure most men would be scared if such a woman would want to kill you, but this is GTA. She almost killed Claude in III too, and look what became of her. CJ had simply no balls. Remember the cutscene with Mendez and Toreno where they were in the car and Mendez pointed his gun at him? ´Oh no, please dont kill me! I said please!´. Other protagonists would never act like this. Eg. as Mikhail and Dimitri kidnapped Niko and Roman. Andrei was threatening Niko with a saw? Just read this:
ndrei Why not?
[Dimitri heads upstairs.]
Andrei You've been a bad boy, Mr. Balkan... and the boss is not happy.
Niko Oh no! I sh*t my pants!
Andrei Not yet, but you will. Who are you working for?
Niko Errr, my cousin, Roman.
Andrei Don't be an idiot. That's not good enough. I'm going to saw off your
f*cking arm. Speak!
Niko Okay, okay, your dad likes it up the ass... [laughing] what do you want
me to say, huh?
[Andrei smacks Niko twice with a hacksaw.]
Andrei Very funny... do you think you're so smart?
Niko No. I'm tied up in a basement a long way from home, while some ape
threatens me with a hacksaw, so no, I'm not that smart.

Niko was making fun of him. What I want to say is, San Andreas is a great game but with decent character developing. This is my opinion so dont flame me.

actually she DOES shoot claude in III. Claude kills her though

Niko is more badass. CJ was a bit of a lady boy imo. Dont get me wrong, i loved San Andreas, but the story was always sub par. Perhaps its because i'm not in the target audience? I dunno.
I liked some of the characters - Toreno, Tenpenny, Cesar (eventually), Wu Zi, The truth, and although i say the story sucked, i still enjoyed it - its a game after all, and was fun.

But the story in IV seems more mature, more subtle. At the end of the day ANY story for gta is unrealistic. Shoot one cop and it'd be game over - cops do NOT give up looking for cop killers, and Niko would be ID'd VERY quick. He'd get f*cked very quick.
But there's a thing called "willing suspension of disbelief" which means where the reader/gamer can (either consciously or unconsciously) allow some unrealistic things to pass, if that makes sense.
San An took that a bit too far - Alien artifacts, breaking into a government military base, stealing jetpack, flying a jump jet - All cool and fun, but story wise, wasnt immersive at all.

I think the biggest difference is the level of maturity that R* are trying to go with nowadays
Their newest "AAA" games all seem to be more complex and mature, i think that's it.


And by mature i don't mean the difference between a kid saying "do do head" and adults. I mean in a more sophisticated way.

i stand in my first opinion, you don't really explain why, there no foundation and crediblity... plus, you told almost the same everytime like in a another topic and you're trolling with a gta IV comparison, so before i ignore you, i can just say what i told everytime for any "hater"... if you don't like the games or everyting about it don't play, don't post, that's the deal than trolling everywhere about f*cking times and with a useless opinion(biased)

I do not want to contradict myself, but we do not judge a character if he is don't give any sh*t about everyone or if he's would kill everybody for revenge and cie... it's above all a question of credibility of this one, it's simply.

Niko never got threatened with a chainsaw, as it says in the quote it was a hacksaw.

Any way, BOT, I have only ever played IV, TBOGT and TLAD, so from that I have to vote IV.

Uhm, thats what I said...

Simple mistake, only a tiny bit of difference between the two tounge.gif

personally i think the story in SA sucked. It started okay i guess then just went off on one. Ive seen worse but i've seen better too...
III's story was simplistic, Vice's was pretty good,
LCS and VCS were alright, but IV was the only story that hit on multiple levels i felt.

f*cking kid ! get out if you don't understand what a real story is... yeah yeah "SA suxxxx!!!!" but for what exactly ? oh yeah ! i've founded ! because after the great start the story get a more intense and complex direction... but with your ignorance you don't see anyting !, so dude before posting get a brain and real argument.



Tycek => you have said something ?, i don't heart well... (argument i mean).





ps : i'm tired by people ignorance...

we have a fan boy.

don't understand what a real story is? I'm a f*cking write you moron.
You see someone who doesnt share your opinion Grow up and get your head out of your arse.
This topic was what did people "THINK" was the best story - opinion. Untill you can respect others' opinions, please don't bother posting. "Ignorant"? Look in the mirror.

actually i respect someone is this if this one can write a real post (and no insulting it) no a piece piece of trash like your's.

actually she DOES shoot claude in III. Claude kills her though

Niko is more badass. CJ was a bit of a lady boy imo. Dont get me wrong, i loved San Andreas, but the story was always sub par. Perhaps its because i'm not in the target audience? I dunno.
I liked some of the characters - Toreno, Tenpenny, Cesar (eventually), Wu Zi, The truth, and although i say the story sucked, i still enjoyed it - its a game after all, and was fun.

But the story in IV seems more mature, more subtle. At the end of the day ANY story for gta is unrealistic. Shoot one cop and it'd be game over - cops do NOT give up looking for cop killers, and Niko would be ID'd VERY quick. He'd get f*cked very quick.
But there's a thing called "willing suspension of disbelief" which means where the reader/gamer can (either consciously or unconsciously) allow some unrealistic things to pass, if that makes sense.
San An took that a bit too far - Alien artifacts, breaking into a government military base, stealing jetpack, flying a jump jet - All cool and fun, but story wise, wasnt immersive at all.

I think the biggest difference is the level of maturity that R* are trying to go with nowadays
Their newest "AAA" games all seem to be more complex and mature, i think that's it.


And by mature i don't mean the difference between a kid saying "do do head" and adults. I mean in a more sophisticated way.


i stand in my first opinion, you don't really explain why, there no foundation and crediblity... plus, you told almost the same everytime like in a another topic and you're trolling with a gta IV comparison, so before i ignore you, i can just say what i told everytime for any "hater"... if you don't like the games or everyting about it don't play, don't post, that's the deal than trolling everywhere about f*cking times and with a useless opinion(biased)

I didnt like the story of San Andreas at all. I start with the protagonist: CJ, a grove street gangmember that escaped Los Santos and moved to Liberty City, leaving his friends and family alone. This is where it starts: What kind of p*ssy is this? I dont mean to flame anyone but CJ, unlike other GTA characters, was not a real man. Not only at the start but later in the storyline too. He was scared of Catalina. SCARED. SCREAMING. In real life, sure most men would be scared if such a woman would want to kill you, but this is GTA. She almost killed Claude in III too, and look what became of her. CJ had simply no balls. Remember the cutscene with Mendez and Toreno where they were in the car and Mendez pointed his gun at him? ´Oh no, please dont kill me! I said please!´. Other protagonists would never act like this. Eg. as Mikhail and Dimitri kidnapped Niko and Roman. Andrei was threatening Niko with a saw? Just read this:

If you guys want to continue to argue, take it to PM's. I don't want to see it again, and if I do, there will be consequences.

1) GTA Vice City - I haven't played VC for a long time since the disc got scratched beyond repair, but I've always felt that one of the best things the game had going for it was a good, solid story. It might have been your simple "mafia thug works his way up the food chain blah blah blah" tale, but it worked. It may have ripped a lot from Scarface, but that was a good film to rip off anyway. Tommy was a strong character with simple goals, and despite being a bit of a jerk, he had something likeable about him - he was the badass we all wanted to be.
2) GTA IV - I was going to vote for this, but the nostalgia factor of VC must have clinched it away. I'll keep it short because I'd be repeating what many people have already said - the characters were relateable and a good step up from some of the cardboard cutouts we'd seen before, the story was deep but easy to follow, and despite the missions themselves being a little repetitive, everything fitted together rather well into a marvellous tale worthy of film.
3) GTA Chinatown Wars - the story was rather childish and the characters cliched, but the writers knew this, and formed a fun tongue-in-cheek romp out of it.
4) GTA San Andreas - the game had a good beginning and a great ending with some excellent characters (helped by the stellar voice cast), but a lot of what happened inbetween felt unnecessary - I was asking myself why a lot of things were happening. Why would CJ break into a mansion and slaughter a dozen people just to steal some rap lyrics for a friend? Why would he go up against the US military to get something for a hippy he hardly knows? Why can't the US government think of a way to get rid of a few spies that doesn't involve the death of countless Navy personel and the theft of a multi-million dollar aircraft? Why can't I get over these little issues and enjoy what was a very fun game? Plus, as Mati said, CJ was a bit of a pussy.
5) GTA Liberty City Stories - the game had a decent storyline, but it wasn't particularly memorable at all. The game's climax was rather disappointing as well - most other GTA games have you fight off against a major character who is introduced early on in the game and interacts often with the protagonist - LCS puts you up against a mob boss who was only seen/mentioned in two/three other missions.
6) GTA III - for all the game did for the series and the gaming industry in general, you can't say the story was all that great. Catalina tries to kill you, then several mostly unrelated mission arcs happen, then you kill her. A great game, but the story wasn't much of a step up from the "pick a mission out of a hat" style of the top-down games.

I haven't played GTA 1, London, VCS or EfLC, I haven't finished Advance (and I probably won't; I wasn't impressed), and GTA 2 didn't have any form of story to begin with.

I agree with what seems to be the general consensus that IV's storyline is more mature than any of the previous GTAs. However, people don't buy a video game just because its storyline is good; it has to have a solid gameplay and replay value. This is where IV lacked and SA triumphed. Once you're done with IV's storyline, the novelty wears off quickly and you don't find it as engrossing as you did the first time around. With San Andreas, I can't even remember the number of times that I have played through the storyline just because the missions were so much fun. The story itself wasn't that bad either and the missions seemed well connected with each other. Overall, my vote goes to San Andreas.

For me I believe it's a tie between San Andreas and GTA IV. In GTA IV they managed to create a protagonist that you really cared for, they also created realistic relationships between the characters. Although I think they kind of failed a bit with "searching for that special someone". Sometimes it felt like Niko completely forgot to look for this person, and all of a sudden it was very important to him. They also failed a bit with creating a good tension between protagonist and antagonist. What the story in GTA IV was really good at though, was capturing the story of an immigrant looking for a better life.

San Andreas was better at creating a tension between protagonist and antagonist. And I think CJ's intentions were a bit better. In GTA IV you sometimes wondered "why the hell am I working for this guy?". CJ had a goal, which I liked.

GTA 4 has the best storyline by far. VCS has the second best and Chinatown Wars has the third best storyline.
