Slightly off topic, but the funny thing about GTA III LC's is I never used to really like it that much at least at the time when VC released.

It wasn't until I downloaded it off PSN I discovered a love for it that had been trapped inside for over a decade.

To me LC past and present is what defines GTA. Something VC and SA just can't seem to do quite aswell IMO.

When I think of gang ridden streets, stolen cars, hookers, pimps etc I think of LC. It's what makes GTA well GTA.

I guess it helps when LC is used whenever the series goes through a dramatic change.

You've got a point.

 

LC was used in GTA III as the first 3D game, LC was used in LCS for the first mobile 3D GTA, LC was used in IV for the RAGE engine and LC was used in CTW to showcase the return of the birds-eye camera and a mobile interpretation of the HD LC.

Or maybe because just city is easier to build? 

It's a valid point though. 

OT  yes to me it is simply because no one is playing it.

GTA IV on PC takes a steamy wet dump on GTA V on the consoles.

Um ... sure.

 

Yeah, all those big ramps that everyone created in the sky and playing as SpongeBob Squarepants ... that just can't be beat. At least for the first twenty minutes of that stuff. Then it just gets dull.

If you think nostalgia only pertains to the multiplayer side of GTA IV there is something very, very wrong with you.

The storyline is the most amazing part of the game by far.

Don't forget about the fact that it was the first city you visited in Grand Theft Auto history (Grand Theft Auto, 1997).
