I think GTA is the best game because you're free to go where ever you want (except for a lot of buildings)...it has more then 100 vehicles including helicopters, bikes, cars, boats etc. that's what makes GTA such a good game.

Because it is simply the best game ever made. The reason that people b*tch about it sometimes is that GTA3 came out and showed everyone glimpses of what was possible. Things no one had imagined before. GTA3 were near perfect, the layout and feel of the game were bang on, all it needed was maybe a fourth island, bikes, aircraft and more action out on the sea and interactive buildings. Oh and more missions of course. GTAVC satisfied all of these needs but still hasn't gone all the way, so the next game still has lots of scope.

If you think about it, the game is only limited by the programmers ability to harness the PS2s power. What would make GTAVC better? Well GTA3 had a couple of points over GTAVC, they are only minor but add to the atmosphere. TO me there are three.

1) The data streaming that GTAVC uses means that once a car has gone past Tommy, it no longer exists. Search for a bike, see one come past, turn, its gone. This detracts from the real life feel and bugs you.

2) GTA3 was gloomy, this set a different mood on the game, one that fits the game better.

3) GTA3 had hills. This was great to me, it made for great scenery.

I know this thread is what about what is great about GTAVC but I am just making the point that if the game had these three elements from GTA3. It would be perfect. I am glad it hasn't, because it means that the next game can improve therefore they will make one. GTAVC is the best game I have ever played, GTA3 the second.

I completely agree. There is quite simply no game like it. No other games developer dare include some of the stuff Rockstar do in their games. It's controversial, which is what makes it so damn good.

If they do a Las Vegas copy, which is what i'm hearing half the time ( it's getting really confusing, isn't it?) they'll have the best of both worlds, i'm wondering how they are gonna keep it seperated from the outside world while keeping it realistic, i mean the hills did it in liberty because air travel was limited to one plane that i could barely get over to staunton(probably cuz i never owned the game) any ideas?


i just realized this is the most off topic i have ever gotten, i'm so proud of myself :)

Perfect explination Tanner, but I don't think the next game will be perfect, not with the PS2's hardware. Not to talk bad about it, but it is the 1st of the "Next Generation" consoles, which makes it just a bit worse. I believe it will be very very good on later systems such as PS3 or if they sell out, Xbox. (No flames please ) :p  Anyway, GTA3 is still number 1 for me. :D
