Welp, which Grand Theft Auto do you think is overrated or underrated? For me: Overrated: none. Underrated: VCS and LCS

Overrated: GTAO. Just because something's popular doesn't make it great. 

 

Underrated: CTW and TLAD.

 

GTA IV doesn't really fit into the underrated category IMO, but for whatever reason it still seems to get blood pressures rising. None of the 3D era GTAs are underrated to me. They're too widespread loved to be "underrated".

Overrated - San Andreas, I respect the hell out of San Andreas as one of the most ambitious games of its gen but the godlike pedestal it's been put on is ridiculous & unbearably obnoxious.

 

Underated - GTA 2 LCS & CTW

GTA SA is way too overrated for its own good, too much circlejerking around its above average at best story and even more around CJ ruins what actual good this game has, which is plenty.

Now for an underrated GTA, I'd have to say most mobile versions, but especially Chinatown Wars. Although I've never played it, from what I saw and read about the game, it doesn't deserve the flack it gets at all.

Overrated: San Andreas and GTA V (along with GTA:O)

 

San Andreas was great for its time and it's a milestone for PS2, which was barely able to run it anyway, but the status of the best GTA ever some people plastered on the aforementioned game is a bit annoying. For me GTA: VCS was already better than SA, not to mention IV.

 

Same goes for GTA V especially its Online component, which are considered as the next best thing in the world since sliced cheese, but in all honestly it's bug ridden, boring game with rather annoying microtransactions system advertised by Rockstar as all you need and want. Apart from financial success the game achieved only one thing - killed new Rockstar games for years to come.

 

Underrated: VCS and CTW.

 

Both were great games - VCS being to the ultimate GTA game and CTW one of the best games for DS and very solid product with great gameplay mechanics, but both are unloved for very similar fact - limited publishing, either for one manufacturer consoles (VCS for PSP and PS2) or mobile platforms (CTW for DS, cellphones and PSP).

Overated  San Andreas, i dont hate the game for the time it was amazing what Rockstar did but i dont get why so many people treat it like god, i dont understand.

GTAV  graphically a good game but too much this game is god like SA, i dont get it

 

Underated  Liberty City Stories and i wish it hadnt been confined to PSP and PS2  it should have found its way on to XBOX and PC. Its a good game to play with plenty of Rockstar humour.

VCS made me feel like a crime lord more than VC did. I loved the racket system, even if it was pretty basic, but still, I love the game's story and I think Vic is also an underrated protagonist as much as Martinez is an underrated villain.

I have seen that review on a website before. BTW, i have thought about it and my overrated GTA is San Andreas. It's a cool game but the fanbase is annoying.

I'm surprised they didn't call the GTA IV fans stupid poo, poo heads because I find it hard to believe either of those posts were written by someone older than 12.

 

I have a lot of respect for people like Mr Pink and other like minded individuals who put effort into their critiques of GTA IV without coming across as whiny and would value my time to read them, but really people like this are the reason everyone stereotypes GTAO players as immature asshats. And we're the bad guys apparently? lol.

Overrated: GTA SA (good game, but the entire gaming community, not just GTA fans, treats this game like it's the undisputable god of all games).

GTA O (this whole EA/Dice and Battlefront II controversy made me realize that people are willing to give Rockstar a pass for doing sh*t that they would rage at other companies for doing. Not that EA doesn't deserve the hate mind you, but why the sudden widespread outrage at them for doing a shady business practice that Rockstar and T2 have been living off for years now?)

GTA VC (again good game but I don't really see anything special in it like others do).

Underrated: GTA LCS (I see why people may have been disappointed since it came after SA and was missing a ton of features, but for a PSP GTA I thought it was very solid).

GTA VCS (reintroduced some features from SA and revamped them alongside some new ones, good melee combat, Empire Building, liked the story. IMO it's way better than both VC and SA).

GTA CTW (f*ck it, this game is just plain fun; it's honestly one of the best games out there to just mess around the map doing odd jobs, not to mention drug dealing. And the story and characters are hilarious to me, it did a better job at being a more satirical game than V did to me).

Overrated: Vice City and that Tommy prick.
Underrated: III (bc Vice City overshadowed that game) and Chinatown Wars. Chinatown Wars reminded me why games like GTAIII was fun in the first place.


Edit: To the reviewer saying that GTAIV looks dull. It's supposed to look all gritty on purpose to match the dark theme amd environment.

Overrated: GTA Online. It is an absolute embarrasement. What was rockstar thinking turning their backs on their long-time fans with this? The amount of potential GTA V single player had if they had focused less on this with the microtransactions and sh*t is really just sad.
Underrated: All Mobile GTAs (excluding gta advance).

Overrated:

 

GTA Online: This game is like 6 years old and is still buggy, broken, complicated mess and it shows how people give a pass to R*. Besides people on this forum, I rarely hear backlash about shark cards and this microtransaction game yet people bash EA for it solely. Not saying they don't deserve but it's high time people rage at R* for doing it because it'll only get worse in RDR and VI. But seriously, this game is f*cking horrible and doesn't offer anything to the amount of fun had in IV's MP, RDR's MP and hell, even SA's modded SAMP. 

 

GTA VC: Good game (Fourth favorite GTA game) but I personally feel VCS is the better of the two.

 

Underrated:

 

GTA VCS: One of the best GTA games out there. So underrated and more people need to get in on this. And f*ck R* for not releasing a mobile port for its 10 year anniversary.

Definitely. GTAO gets way to much praise from its fans. The games f*cking trash simple as that IMO. And yes it's separate game from V. R* already did that. V had so much potential regarding it's long lost SP DLC abandoned by it's own developer. A shame...a freaking damn shame :dozing:

Couldn't agree more. R* can go f*ck themselves and their sh*tty online. Never knew how something can change them so badly. Even ignoring a simple 10th anniversary tribute to VCS :angry:

It is a good game indeed, but it hasn't aged well at all as far as I'm concerned. I have a feeling this holier than thou notion that gets peddled is by PC players who mod the crap out of the game which makes it easier to overlook its weaknesses in core gameplay that's been done way better in newer games.

Ive never really been into modding the games apart from at one time i tried changing a few cars in VC and GTA3  i had the files for KITT out of knightrider and added that  but otherwise my games are played as they where meant to be played.

I agree San Andreas is a good game a lot of stuff packed in there, but as you say it hasnt aged well and i think your right its the PC players who make it out to be the god of GTA but each to there own.

I don't think any of the 3D era games have aged well tbh. Mods really are what keep them alive.
