Vice City vs. San Andreas

Recommended Posts

the_vorak

I am whit Vice.I love the game,it's...amazing!i think is the inversion of the GTAIII,because

in III all the colors are dark and people are sad,in my opinion,and in Vice all the colors are bright and all the people are happy. colgate.gif

I did not play the San Andreas but i heard is not so god. icon13.gif

i guess its a subjective thing really... but personally i think VC oozes appeal for anyone lucky enough to remember the ridiculous 80s... but its not all about the nostalgia... VC stories seems to run on the SA engine which i dont prefer.even though its the same place, map, etc...im always drawn to VC over it...its quite simply the best console game ever...in my humble subjective opinion of course wow.gif

OK, all the guys I talk to about VC always say San Andreas is much better. I don't see it. Sure, SA is much bigger, better and more expansive but I say that doesn't make it a better game. It's the mood and the characters. I felt at home in Vice when i first settled down because it's kindov bright and cheery and you can get all this really cool stuff early on like sports cars, weapons and stuff like that. In SA i felt like I was in a very boring dark colourless hell. I'm not denying that SA is a good game at all, I love it, I just don't like people telling me more features make a better game.

 

What do you think? confused.gif

Exactly like me.I also feel the atmosphere in VC was a lot happier than in SA,its radio stations for example were all great stuff.It felt like a calm and advanced city.

At first I played VC ALOT! But when I completed the storyline, the point of the game started to dissappear... Sure VC is alot better in storyline, voice acting and + the sunny resort and sandy beaches style is my favourite! But as soon as I finished the storyline, there wasn't much to do anymore... No actual firepower against you to evade. exept the police but that's different... So now I play SA becouse it offers me to do, altough I have to admit that the story wasn't very exciting.

VC should have offered a larger variety of planes and helicopters..

I still miss VC-s beautiful sunsets, sandy beaches and the whole sunny resort city cryani.gif

*Bump*

 

SA is a great game, but I'll always be a VC fan.

 

Just the general atmosphere, characters, soundtrack etc rocked.

 

SA may have been bigger, with more features, but VC introduced us to more melee weapons, bikes, planes, assets etc for the time. The only thing was there was no swimming, but I can live with that.

 

I feel that most people only choose SA due to its size, and features. VC could have very easily had the stuff SA had, at the end of the day.

John-

If you ask this in Vice City GD 99% of the people will vote for Vice City, there needs to be a GTA General Discussion.

San Andreas,

Because of all the Hidden Interiors you could access without a mod/trainer

It's a close call. If I had to be stuck on a desert island with one of them, I'd probably pick SA due to its size and longevity. One thing the game doesn't have though are two of my favourite GTA features : Rampages and Hidden Packages, and this brings Vice City back to within a horse's hair of taking the lead in the debate. The music is better in Vice City too.

SA has a very good story, VC to but they have been too much inspired of Scarface in that game. SA have it's own story. But I think that the part ware you are a gangbanger is boring, the life in SF and LV are much moore funny.

i think each gta brought something new and unique to the table. VC was good because it had more of a party, fun atmosphere and an awesome soundtrack and set of characters, SA had excellent gameplay but the story seemed somewhat too far fetched for CJ and the soundtrack wasnt horrible, but it didnt hit the spot for me. so overall, id have to say VC is better imo, i just liked the city in general and the 80s atmosphere. The rap/gangsta theme was awesome but it didnt quite catch with parts of the storyline.

I agree.

 

Both Vice City, and SA have a different theme, to appeal to different people.

 

I love the 80s atmosphere in VC, but some people like the 90s ganster theme of SA.

 

Either way GTA offers something different in each game, which is why I think they're so awesome.

Because I didn't have to level up in Vice City, and since Vice City was funner, I would have to say Vice City.

Absolutely!! Vice City is my favorite, followed by GTA 3 then SA. It's all about the chemistry between the atmosphere, characters, storyline... all that. Sure the gameplay in SA is twice that of either Vice City or GTA 3, but that does not make it better or more enjoyable.

No idea, but you could always use the Search function now that it's working.

perhaps... it's dificult, i have both.. maybe if Vice City where as big as San Andreas and Have the same features...well. i'll prefer Vice city, even now i'm playing more vice city than San Andreas', i hope in the future we can use the graphic engine of SA to make a "GTA World" or something like that.. because i loved too GTA3, was the first game where i really felt free to make what i want (i know, that was the point!) make a choise between games them selves it's hard because they'r diferent one of other... not better or wors

Vice City. Why? Well first the best soundtrack in any GTA game. Second, no crazy-ass hot cofee crap. Third it was a really nice setting to play in. Third, it is the best game to start learning how to mod with. Fourth, it isnt a huge map filled with forest where if you car explodes your f****ed. And Fith, Because VC had the Lance-Vance-Dance! lol.gif

Three, actually but it doesn't make a difference. Donald Love was in Vice City (though short appearance).
