Hell, with all these references, they could've passed Vice City off as "Miami Vice: The Game".

 

Even funnier that when I first got Vice City back in 2002/2003, I never thought it was connected to Miami Vice.

That's funny. Because I didn't either. 

 

I always connected it to Scarface instead. You know with the final mission? It's pretty damn similar.

"Miami Vice" inspired a lot of clothing and style trends, so it's fitting that it's influence is felt throughout this great game. In matter of fact, I heard Dan Houser viewed every episode before writing the game's script to brush up on his "Miami Vice" knowledge (well worth it; I think it's a heck of a series).
