I found this article http://whatculture.c...-theft-auto.php and i dont agree.

 

What about Grove Street, The Lost And Damned "Before GTA V"  Leone, and so on.

 

What do you think what is your top 5-10?

 

Gang: Weapons, Members, Connections, Turf, Businesses,.

The Colombian Cartel without a doubt IMO.

 

- Income: They were a Cartel, thus they entirely controlled the market for the new (maybe designer) drug SPANK. This gave them a bottomless source of income (

Spoiler
). That makes them perhaps the wealthiest gang in 3D GTA history.

 

- Assets: They were very smart in investing this massive income - not wasting it on useless luxuries like your stereotypical gangsters. They controlled the best assets of any criminal organisation in 3D GTA game. These includes a freight ship, the massive Pan-Lantic contruction company, which was involved in massive construction projects in LC (including the Porter Tunnel and the massive construction sites in Staunton Island), and other freight in and around Francis International Airport.

 

- Connections: They had connections with the CIA, as evidenced by the mission

Spoiler
. How many other gangs can boast that level of connections?

 

- Direct Threat: As a direct threat, the Colombian Cartel is by far the biggest threat to players in 3D GTAs after the Leone Family Mafia,

Spoiler
. After the end of the game, their members start roaming the streets armed with 'Uzis' (Micro-Uzi IRL) and 'AK47s' (AKM/AK74 IRL).

They even have heavily armed death squads dotted around Shoreside Vale in

.

, some cartel members are armed with Rocket Launchers, and

, one or more of their members have Flame-Throwers!

Overall, I think they are by far the best armed gang in 3D GTA history, as well as the best tactically trained (with the creation and deployment of death squads).

 

- Cars: Car types and [erformance strong points are rather an acquired taste, so I won't comment on how awesome, big and intimidating the Cartel Cruisers they drive are. However, what I will put up as a point is their intelligent use of civilian cars as concealment, rather than relying on their unique gang cars. To my knowledge, the only other gang in GTA 3 to do that is the

Well Cisco is a fair point (if you choose to believe Advance is canon of course), but I don't think Catalina was ever their leader. She started out as a small time bank robber, and in a few months after teaming up with Miguel in the bank robbery I doubt she could have managed to attain leadership. Plus the fact she's cousins with Ceasar from SA means she's got at least half Mexican heritage, and I was of the assumption that you could only head a gang like this if you were full Colombian.

QFT, very true mate.

I personally really can't see Catalina as anything more than a high-ranking member - she way just a bank-robber at the beginning of the game, and from her nature in SA, I can't see her hold any position of power. Though she was able to exploit the Cartel's assets to send death squads and suicide bombers (

Spoiler
) after Claude.

 

IMO, hand-held console games really shouldn't be taken as canon. With my experiece with LCS and VCS, their storyline was rather rushed,and the cities are too different for the setting only a few years before other games.

 

With Miguel,

Spoiler
.

 

Also, even if we were to assume one or both of their leaders did die, I can't really see a major decline in their power. With the incompetence, unpredictability and treachery of Catalina, and (from what little I know of GTA Advance) treachery of Miguel gone, things can only look up for them.
