sooy if i put this in the wrong forum but its hard since it involves 3 games.
So wgich is Gta 3s prequel
Gta advance or Gta lcs because Gta lcs shows how tony came to be so high in the leone family.
whereas Gta advance shows how 8Ball ends up with claude

What do you guys think the Answer is?

Grand Theft Auto Advance wasn't made by Rockstar, and none of it's characters and events are referenced in the other games, so the vast majority of people don't consider it an official part of the series. LCS was made by Rockstar, and has a lot of connections with the other games.

 

By the way, is your last name Van Damme?

Both.

 

LCS is set in 1998, three years before GTA3. Advance is set in the year 2000, one year before GTA3.

 

However, the canonicity of Advance is debatable for the reasons stated by AustinN above and the fact that it is not listed on Rockstar's official site for GTA despite having a page here.

To be fair the only reason events and characters from GTAA aren't referenced in other games is the only GTA from the GTA III era to be set after is GTA III, but GTA III characters like 8 Ball, Asuka and King Courtney appear in GTAA.

It's pretty much what CTW is to the HD era. I'd still consider GTAA canon to the GTA III era GTAs. Or at the least spiritually like Red Dead Revolver and Redemption.

To be *set* after, but not *made* after, which I think is more relevant.

 

But I don't have a problem with your personal canon. It makes no difference to me whether people want to consider Advanced a legitimate entry in the series or not.

Actually it MUST be canon because
If gta a isnt canon then how the hell did 8Ball end up in The convoy truck.was he giving Claude a blowjob behind the police station Use yoour brain dumb f*cks.
It is canon even a prequel.
But Gta lcs is also a prequel.
There is no more to say.
Just because another company made it dont mean Rockstar diddnt have any role in giving them rights to call it Gta and include 8Ball even though it shows him getting caught by cops and then in gta 3 going to prisiion.

Gta lcs is a prqquel to it just shows how toni and Sal became Capo di Tutti Capi(boss of bosses) of Liberty city

You want some evidence Advance isn't canon? http://www.rockstarg...ree/story1.html

 

That's from the official site set up for III before the game's release. Nowhere does it mention his hands being burnt by Colombian Cartel members with a flamethrower. Even though this is not an in-game thing, I will take the story that R* gave us over that of another company's.

Not sure why you're getting so aggressive when you're the one who asked which was the prequel in the first place.

liberty tree site doesnt mean sh.t. its just a made up site for players to feel that "this world is real". i never considered it to be canon, idk, its just feels so cheap and made up.

 

on the other hand, gta advance feels a better prequel then lcs to me. because it was originally just a gta3 port to gba, then they felt they needed a new story. city stayed the same, theme, setting, atwork all stayed the original. so it actually feels a complete prequel to gta3.

 

lcs was kinda "lets port gta3 to vc engine and see what happens". which was felt like a mod than a real game.

 

yes, the feeling, and canon-wise, advance > lcs.

All of the games in the GTA III Era are prequals to GTA III. :evilgrin:

 

I consider Advance to be canon because Rockstar never outright said it wasn't and it doesn't contradict anything in III or vice versa.

i ve just watched the whole mission walkthrough on youtube and i can say that advance is the true prequel to gta3. not lcs. lcs tries to connect sa to 3, but sa events are irrelevant to gta3 on many levels. on the other hand, advance just does its own thing, its own story and it does go along with gtaiii pretty well..

Why is this a big deal? Yes the game was awful. Yes it wasn't made by Rockstar. That doesn't mean it isn't canon though. From what I've been reading above, it doesn't do anything to contradict III. Plus, Misty, 8 Ball, and a few others make appearances in Advance.  And in order for the game to be made, Rockstar had to at least give them the rights to it. Liberty City Stories is also Canon. So why is this whole Canon thing such a big deal?  Just because a game did horribly, is no reason to be ashamed of the storyline.

 

Just say they're canon and get it over with. Unless Rockstar comes out and says "it's not canon" verbally, there's gonna be debate.

It was still published by Rockstar even though they didn't make it.
