GTA III felt more alive, there were more ambient sounds compared to Vice City.

Completely agree with this. No other GTA city has managed (imo) to match III's LC for those ambient, distant sounds.

III vs. VC is a difficult one. One that is hard to prise from nostalgia.

The City - LC. Far more varied both in terms of districts and in terms of geography (hills!)

Soundtrack - VC. Undoubtedly. Rockstar took a very different approach here and it worked marvelously to really bring out the 80s atmosphere.

Story - VC by about 60/40. III had a great story of working your way through the ranks as button man, and I liked that. You worked for every single gang barring the Cartel IIRC. VC's story, for all based upon Scarface a lot, was fantastic. The asset building was something that was sorely missed from all GTAs after. There was a real feeling in VC of rags to riches that was achieved superbly.

Weapons - VC easily, although III's sounds were better.

Vehicles - VC.

Gangs - III, easily.

Overall I'd say VC does win, but its fairly close.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City & Grand Theft Auto III are the best indeed.

The question is, which one is better? sneaky2.gif

One Question. Is there anything you like about III??

OT: It's all about personal preference and in my case I like III better but I do love VC aswell

Well to answere your question, no. I ditched the storyline for the gameplay, heck I found Driver to be better in my opion.

Claude, he was so tedious, had no personality, and I had no relation with him.

I guess, really the only things I like was the gameplay, freeroam, Maria and Salvator where the only characters I liked. and it's taken in my home place smile.gif

I adore all the III era GTA's.

I even enjoy (to an extent) playing IV.

Although I like them all, Vice City gets the top spot.

It was the first GTA I played when I could understand how to fully play games.
I'll never forget when my friend brought it round for the first time, I can even remember what we did:

We stole a Gang Burrito and went driving around the Lighthouse area, going across the bridges and running people over.
I was amazed.

Vice City just has 'that feel' to it, yano?

I won't ever get bored of playing III, VC and SA.

Touché! I do miss the rumble of a Cartel Crusier or even a Diablo Stallion...

But on the flipside, you can't really argue with planes and motorbikes...

Speaking of vehicles - did anyone notice that from III to VC and beyond Rockstar (presumably accidently) got the Rumpo and the Pony mixed up?

Grand Theft Auto Vice City is better than Grand Theft Auto III because:

1.Graphics, is better!That's flat!

2.Do not compare to 3 because it is more dense!

3.Mie Mi-a placut mai mult ca san andreasul because.........!

4.One thing I did not like about Vice City, you can not swim! :santa:
