I'm actually loving the mods that are coming out for 3 as well like ones that open those tunnels north of shore side vale.

What people forget about III is how so many parts of it had never been done before, how utterly amazing it was to cruise around this 3D open city, the freedom of jumping out of your car at anytime and finding another, how brutal the violence was. Read these reviews

 

Gamespot - 9.6/10 While the violent nature of the game will surely turn some people off and kids simply shouldn't be allowed anywhere near it, GTA III is, quite simply, an incredible experience that shouldn't be missed by anyone mature enough to handle it". Game Informer gave it a 9.5/10, stating "The environments of Liberty City are stunning in scope and detail, dwarfing anything I've ever seen, and your choices are endless". GameSpy awarded the game with 9.4/10 stating "A fantastically designed and fun game that's one of the most absorbing, entertaining titles released in a while. It gets better and better with every single day, as you continue discovering new little features here and there. ". Game Revolution gave the game a perfect score, stating "Just about the best game yet released on the system and one of the most impressive console titles we've ever seen. And I ain't blowing smoke up your tailpipe". GamePro gave the game a 5/5, stating "Greatly improved in GTA III is the stunning visual and sound package." GamesRadar gave the game a perfect 10, stating "Almost immediately after your first play you'll realize that underneath the cloak of controversy that will forever shadow GTA3 sits a truly special, groundbreaking and brilliant game. You'll love it.

 

In the context of 2001 GTA3 was an astonishingly complex, refreshing and polished game. Compared to modern games its nothing special, its still fun to play but theres so many games with the same features and much more so theres not much point playing it unless you're into the retro games thing. Yeah it looks cartoony and blocky now, even 'ugly' depending on your opinion. But you've got to remember that GTA3 set the bar for open world sandbox games, and we have a lot to thank it for. I still feel its a landmark of a game, and it does have a certain atmosphere that I really love and that cant be replicated. GTA3 was a great game and always will be. It'll keep popping up on lists of most groundbreaking games for a long time.

Rockstar knows that people are gonna be buying shark cars and that means money, so they'll keep repeating what they're doing with online and have the plot be more of an afterthought or even a tutorial for online. It's like Call of Duty, they're just going to keep throwing out the same stuff on a constant basis because it makes them money, not because it's actually any good.

I don't think we're gonna get a new GTA game that captures the same feelings or excitement that GTA 3 or the earlier ones did, so let's just relish what we got because Rockstar very likely won't do it again.

So what might we see for gta 6 if R* are going to continue doing the same sh*t with V? We already know R* aren't going back to III's era roots. Don't know what might we see for the future of this massive game franchise :/

Sure, III is still fun after 100%, but there really is nothing to do except Police Rampages or trying to beat your personal records in flying the Dodo
Edit: And of course trying to beat your Turismo records.

I don't do any of this in III since i achieved 100% completion years ago along with VC. I just mess around with the cheats to have fun. With Weaponsforall cheat i could have a blast on my play through all day long just laughing at peds killing each other and enjoy it like if it was a new game. Like i said i'm far too stuck in the old days :turn:
 
I don't think that is a bad thing.

GTA (the original) had a simple, arcade feel too it, this was still present in III but started to disappear in Vice City (slightly) and quite largely in San Andreas. 
It's nice too see i'm not the only one who plays these classics. I mean i'll admit i play V from time to time but the 3D era has so much to offer. Just different things the new games don't have. I'm not really referring to IV since it's kinda old but more to V in which people enjoy that online crap they play (Imo of course). You can't forget these gta's that came first.

 

I don't really think it's just nostalgia. A best friend of mine who had never really played the 3D era GTA's that much, just the HD ones. Anyway he decided to buy a Ps2 recently, that he used to own when he was a kid and bought GTA III, Vice City and SanAndreas. He said he very much liked Grand Theft Auto III, because it was simple and the atmospheric setting. He didn't really like Vice City, not because of the 80's theme or anything, the gameplay didn't seem to feel right to him and I can understand that.
