What Gta do you think had the best storyline? Also this contains the 3D & HD Era..

 

(My Opinion's)

GTA Vice City:It had this Scarface feeling of being the kingpin of Vice City & owning a big mansion in which i really enjoy because Scarface is a great film and it actually felt like that time period of the 1980's & the whole drug smuggling down in FL 

 

GTA IV:An immigrant coming from Serbia to Liberty City to make some changes in life , but then some bad thing's happen and it turns very dark & gritty throughout the life cycle being in Liberty City .

GTA IV obviously. It's the only story that left an impression on me to still think about it after nearly a decade. Everything from Niko, to the supporting cast, to the tone, writing etc is simply incredible.

GTA IV. Almost no question about it. It's probably one of the most well-written stories for any GTA and the one that the writers definitely put the most thought into. Add to that the Episodes from Liberty City and how the storylines tie in to IV with the cocaine and diamonds (among other occurrences and events that), and it was probably one of the most cohesive and interesting stories that they've put together. Although the III era games and how they all tie into each other are also pretty good, too, and the stories to VC and SA are still very memorable.

GTA III= Revenge on your girlfriend who betrayed you

GTA VC= Becoming the king of the Vice City Criminal

GTA SA= Earning your reputation back

GTA LCS= Same as SA

GTA VCS= Same as VC

GTA V= The trio robbing banks together

As much as I like San Andreas the best, GTA IV had the best storyline. You, Algonquin Assasins, and "Hmm Nice Bike" user had explained it perfeftly, I don't think I need to explain it again. Niko Bellic is my favourite protagonist anyway.

IV easily. It's the GTA with the most interesting narrative, amazing cast of characters, excellent and witty writing, and the best protagonist of the series. Do I really need to say more?  :cool:

Personally I found GTA 3 to be most interesting. Maybe that is due to nostalgia because this was my first gta game,but there is something special about the Gangster theme in this game.

My second favourite is San Andreas. While the story gets messed up in San Fierro and LV,the ending with Cj and his grove street family back together in Los Santos was a very emotional ending for me.

Voted for Sa

.
I was going to say the same

After 16-17 years, playing GTA III is still exciting for me. It is mostly because my childhood Nostalgia. I played this game for 5-6 years constantly, fell in love first moment I see it.

On my first playthrough, my favourite moment in GTA SA was the mission where Claude makes a cameo, lol.

I never got into GTA IV's story. Niko blames one guy because he sold his squad for small amount of money. Whole GTA IV story consist of Niko killing & betraying everyone for small amount of money. That's why I let that darko guy live at the end.

GTA V's story was going nearly perfect, until FIB stuff came in, then seriously flawed.

I voted GTA III knowing that it's not the best, at least it is best & exciting for me

I love how EFLC intersects with GTA IV. Ive always compared it to Pulp Fiction and Sin City in that regard. It's so much more interesting than GTA V's buddies working together approach.

GTAIV undoubtedly.It doesn't play like your ordinary GTA game. It's more like Mafia.  When I played Vice City again on the spring last year I found a surprisingly deep story. But GTAIV is a little bit better.

GTA IV, hands down. An epic crime drama with interwoven subplots that tie into the DLCs, really deep and endearing characters, and some of the best exchanges of dialogue ever featured in a video game.

 

Niko: "You killed my friends for one-thousand dollars?"

Darko: "How much do you charge to kill someone?"

 

The cutscenes are also really something special. There are some real poignant moments like when Niko goes to Dwayne's apartment in "Undress to Kill" and "Footsteps in the Dark" is playing in the background and Dwayne's basically on the verge of ending it, but Niko offers to solve his problems for him. I also really liked the kitchen scene with Ilyena Faustin and Niko where he gives a little bit of his backstory about murdering village children and she tells him not to give up hope on redemption. This game made me f*cking FEEL things.

GTA IV has a smorgasbord of great cutscenes to choose from, but I've always loved Niko's revelation to Roman in Uncle Vlad what brought him to Liberty City. It still gives me chills.

Yeah i agree .  I think IV had the best story out of all is the fact that not just Niko's perspective , but Johnny & Luis's as well considering that they're tied to the story too & that's what's so remarkable about IV & EFLC

As much as I despise most of its fans, GTA 4 without a doubt. An Serbian immigrant coming to America was something fresh for a change and really told how the protagonist struggled to live his new life in the gritty town of the USA. It would be wrong to say it didn't have any flaws, but it was definitely the most well-written story of all the GTA games

 

GTA 3 was just a simple revenge storyline that wasn't really meant to be taken seriously. Vice City's storyline was good, but a bit unoriginal due to the Scarface influences. San Andreas' storyline was tacky as hell. I never understood why CJ would leave the hood life after his exile to become a multimillionaire yet despite all the hard work he did, he still reverts back to gangbanging. Plus the writers of the game seemed confused as to what theme they were going for when writing the story of this game. The rest of the stories I really don't have the energy to explain.

I wish I could say GTA V, but it's definitely GTA IV.

 

Such a shame that the first act of GTA V was the only good part of the GTA V story and everything started breaking down once Trevor got introduced.

Sure, a small few moments in SA are OTT but the story is still great

Oh yeah, definitely GTA Advance :p

 

But in all seriousness, just saying GTA IV has the best storyline is not doing it justice. I think compartively the actual writing and dialogue was as solid as GTA SA. That said, GTA IV and GTA SA exist in completely different universes with completely different atmospheres and characters. GTA IV just comes out on top because it - along with the much appreciated DLCs - seems to mesh better with the world it creates, making it seem large and in-depth. SA on the other hand did a great job of making three completely different worlds with their own unique atmospheres and bridged them together with some natural countryside and desert.

 

And I'm not trying to bring down either one of them to the other's level, but I think both of their stories maintain an excellent level of entertainment for each of their worlds and involve you in their own unique ways quite well. Either ways, I would say GTA IV simply because of the Diamonds storyline etc.

Yeah that's another reason of what makes it so remarkable is solving the pieces to the Diamonds storyline in IV & EFLC

Vice City for me. Working yourself up the criminal ladder in an effort to pay back your frenemy Sonny set against an 80s Miami backdrop.. Rockstar really nailed the criminal "rags to riches" storyline here.
