Sticking with only main titles
Posted 28 April 2013 - 01:23 AM Edited by beavis55, 05 June 2013 - 12:18 AM.
I applaud Rockstar for making additional games to expand on the story from the originals but they usually end up with way to many continuity errors. They do add improvements to the stories and portables as well but the end result is still a short spin off that doesnt compare to the original. I cringe every time someone says LCS/VCS is better than III/VC.
IMO the full GTA experience is: 1,2,III,VC,SA,IV/EFLC. (V as well) If you're new the the series or on the fence about playing the stories or portables, dont play them. youre not missing much.
Agree/disagree, thoughts or opinions?

For me, the worthwhile GTAs are III, VC, SA, IV (including dlc), and V (including dlc).

By the way, I disagree, every GTA game is important, it doesn't matter if it's a main title, if it came out first, if it is new, old, it's just as important as any other GTA, it gives you a new experience and -most of the time - an interesting storyline to follow.

LCS and VCS explain things in GTA III and VC that would still be a mystery to this day had they never been made aswell as VCS introducing empire building which IMO is one of the best features in the series.
CTW not so much on the story side, but it introduced a lot of interesting and cool features never used before and EFLC as well all know ties in heavily into the GTA IV plot whist introducing new features of their own.
I would say every GTA is quite important actually.

|I atually liked TBoGT more than IV itself. tLaD I wasn't so bothered about though.|
I had the same exact thoughts, Grand Theft Auto IV was pretty much boring for me and so I decided to move on the Ballad Of Gay Tony side.
The Grand Theft Auto series can keep on going and I'll surely play each one of them in the future.

|I have to disagree. I love LCS and VCS. They are both wonderful additions to the GTA series.|

@Dickvalor, i 100% agree with you. I have changed my opinion about the EFLC and the future V DLC.

From what i've seen, they lack some polish mainly in cutscenes, the main games seem to offer a better, more cinematic story.
Anyway those titles aren't defining in the GTA universe, they're just portable expansions.
So yes, GTA fans can perfectly stick with the main titles, they're not missing out on much.

Considering the first two are free on Rockstar's site (or, were, at least), they are a must-play even if only to see how the series has evolved.

Don't listen to this guy. You don't want to miss the orange hues that coat the Miami beach, Phil Cassidy, and Lance Vance. Or Toni, who may or may not have killed CJ. Donald Love returns, you get a prologue so to speak of the Leone family, Sal is much wiser and more paranoid in LCS and III due to CJ's betrayal. You also get to do some damage to Liberty City, and even kill a political figure. LCS and VCS will immerse you more than their predecessors on gameplay alone.
