This may be wrong selection since there is TBoGT's own sub-forum but i wanted to post it here so more people can see it since this selection is more active. Also, this may contain spoilers so watch out who haven't played the game...
Okay, so after V, i re-played IV, SA and started replaying TBoGT (the next are TLaD & VC). First time when we were introduced to LC in IV. It feel more alive than any previous GTA city (even more than V's LS) with many unique things and details. It had dark atmosphere with really complex protagonist along with perfect story that all fit to each other and even real New York. In that way, all was perfect. Later, when R* released TLaD, it showed us different side of the city about bikers along with also great protagonist and story, new features, different type of story. It also had dark atmosphere and it fit to story and protagonist, plus shows as other side of LC, on great way. It's more connected with IV, they look great like game & DLC. On the other side, when TBoGT came out, i was surprised with all what we good there. Better variety of new 25 missions, some features from VC and SA such as parachute, night clubs, drug wars, very different kind of story, amazing new weapons, different kind of characters, more colors...It also gave the city VC vibe, it wasn't that dark anymore, nights were different, it felt like the whole game has changed. And That's whats the problem actually. It just doesn't fit the city. Sunny, colorful city along with TBoGT's sh*tty story in my opinion doesn't fit the LC's actual feel. In my opinion it's vibe ruined the atmosphere. Also, it has funny characters like gay Tony that annoyed me much. I don't want even to talk about Luis, who is the worst protagonist in the series IMO. The game became less serious what also destroyed LC's feel. It nowhere fit the city and it's precursors IV & TLaD.
Don't get me wrong, it was great addition. New weapons, features, colors that changed many things were great, but it doesn't belongs to LC IMO. I think it would better work in Vice City or like V's DLC. Also there were more things that were bad besides this. Bad protagonist, bad story, mission check list (annoyed me so much), some characters like Evan and Tony. I like the vibe from VC, it gave me VC feeling along with great night clubs which is my favorite GTA.
And that's the reason why i like TLaD more than TBoGT. So, what do you think?
