I have been a huge fan of GTA from its beginning, and have loved every single game. However now after playing the hell out of GTA 5 I was thinking all the time I had to go back and play the old games again. I really looked forward to it, especially my all time favorite in the series Vice City.
So today I pop in Vice City on my PC, I played it on the PS2 back in the day of course, but I thought it would be nice to play it on my "monster" PC with max graphics and everything. And I was CHOCKED by how incredible ugly and stiff the game feelt. I mean it was unbeliviable. This game that I had so fond memories of, that was so "perfect" really feelt so incredible bad. Is it just insane. I had to shut it down after I ran around a bit and tried a car. It just feelt unplayable.
Should I try it again on the console instead, or what are your guys feeling on this game today? I actually often enjoy playing old games (I played through Ultima 1 and Elder Scrolls 1: Arena ffs recently). I seem to have read that it is best to play it on PC these days. I have my old dusty ps2, but I rather not bring it out if I dont have to, and i remember the frame rate on Vice City was not so good on the console.
But this game just seem to have aged so incredible badly, but its strange it was not even that long ago, I mean its the ps2 era. I remember spending hundreds of hours in this fantastic game..
I dont know if it is because I just went straight from GTA 5 back to it or what, but I honestly feel confused right now.
