Vice City vs. San Andreas

Recommended Posts

gtamodder
I don't understand how Vice City would ever beat San Andreas. SA has better storyline, better music (Yeah actually, maybe because I'm a rap fan.) better characters much newer stuff. Hood life > Mafia.

Well, I agree except music. I think SA Better for me, because I hated the pink markers, etc in VC, And the game seemed too bright. And I found VC Too easy. I only choose SA, Because it's harder, the game isn't too bright, and no pink markers and lots of fun stuff. If Vc had no pink markers, whatever is pink, and game wasn't as bright, I would have liked it better then SA.

Vice City without a second thought. Im a stunter so I look for good stunting spots. I own both games and can say that Vice City has the better spots by a mile. Vice City has a better feel to it as well. SA is more Gangsta which I don't really like. It's all dirty and the storyline isn't ANYWHERE as good as VC or GTA 3. The characters have more of a personality in VC. VC's Tommy V has a much better built up character with events leading up to the climax when all SA is would be a bunch of people saying Yo. The atmosphere in SA feels kinda...........Bleh.

Good idea...

 

Anyways I say VC for the atmopshere, assets, ending, properties, and the feeling being in the game. The only atmosphere I like in SA is in LS, feels like you're in the "jungle".

 

SA has the map, storyline, characters, and more things to do rather than VC. There's nothing else to do in VC after you beat it except stunting.. whatsthat.gif

Rampages weren't a very a good feature I might add.

 

But as far the storyline is in SA, only the ending sucked. "Fitting to hit the block"

isn't a very fit ending as to VC's ending.

 

Weapons are better in SA, but looked cooler in VC.

 

 

So I'm pretty much tied between those two.

Sorry to barge in on your opinion, but about the rampages. They are a trademark in Grand Theft Auto history and are a lot of fun to play.

 

IMO there's a lot to do after you beat VC. Such as getting to 100%, Blowing up the city with the Hunter, Gaining "The Stuff of legends" media status by blowing up the city with a tank, taxi missions, vigilante missions, police missions, cruising around the whole city, looking for glitches, figuring out secret messages and a whole lot more are what make the Vice City experience so unique and fan.

 

I have to disagree with you.

 

Sorry.

Sorry.

SA doesn't have rampages - but VC doesn't have gang wars.

They both have a lot to say in their favour. But you can't deny that there's a LOT more in SA

I don't get how the music in VC is better than SA's? If your a rap fan you will agree with me. Radio Los Santos ownz Wildstyle in 1 hit. About the rock music put on there, well I never play these radio's so I don't know what's going on.

Point taken. If your a rap fan you will definitely appreciate SA's more but if otherwise then as you feel.

I'm usally an all round music lover. In my opinion, I like Rap more than Rock. Although if Rock is playing at the time, I will liaten to it actually. Not into the new era music, only in the old school as they're much better.

A lot of people would disagree seeing as all rap is are a couple of words put together and nothing else. Rock takes talent and gets people pumped up. Im not bashing you or your opinion because I myself enjoy some Rap, but like rock a lot more. IMO Wildstyle would own any SA station with 1 touch.

I agree with you about the rap but vice city is a good game because it puts you in the 80's, you have to love SA simply because it's banging at it's best and its the only gta with dr dre lol

When I play VC, I feel it is better then SA, And when I play SA, I feel it is better. I like them about the same.

I like the charactor's ability to swim & climb in SA (wish VC had that). The 4-star wanted level is cool & quite a challenge too. But all-in-all I like both & I'm trying to patiently wait until IV comes out for the PC.

I like San Andreas more because:

 

- The world is much much bigger (Vice City is very small, you can drive threw the whole city in a few minutes with fast car)

- The radio stations are better (Vice City radios were really not so good, most of them were quite boring, K - Rose in SA is the king!!!)

- There are much more vehicles in SA than in Vice City

- The soundtrack for SA was waaaaay better than in VC

- The area of SA is very big and full of secrets (the countryside, desert)

- There is much more to do in SA than in VC (in SA you can dress up, eat, drink, play videogames, be a burglar, drive a truck threw the countryside, racing with bikes etc.)

 

Anyway... I like San Andreas because it offers much more than Vice City.

The lack in VC was something like Radio Los Santos which makes me feel the SA's radio stations beat VC.

I couldn't agree more I loved Miami Vice, Scarface, Carlitos way, and Paid in full its something about the 80's and its something about Miami its like paradise it has all the right music it could've had more pastels lol and it had the sunshine lol, I go to Miami probably once a year and everytime I go I love it I never want to come home thats why everyone retires there. It's always something to do in SA but I never love the scenery because it's the ghetto and I guess it's like how a brother from the hood would see the world but some parts of SA are cool some are too grimey.

I don't get some people say VC is better because San Andreas is gangstas? wtf? Are they racist or what... against black people. Just because Carl is black doesn't make SA being the worse game... I just don't get it.

Don't play the race card-- the story in SA just sucked. Carl was bullied by everyone throughout the game-- his Sister, Smoke, Tenpenny, the CIA guy (his name slips my mind at the moment) etc... game story does matter -- I did like the side mission string about the casino heist.

 

Yes the missions and cities in SA were superior

 

I rank the GTA 3 games by story in the following order-- III (by a mile), VC, LCS tie with SA, VCS -- it is just a coincidence that Carl and Vic were black and their stories were the worst-- they just needed better writers.

 

Perhaps I'd set my standards for SA too high-- I expected better.

You mean Toreno. But whatever, Tommy was also bullied by everyone that had part of the story-line. Including Diaz.

to my studies:

 

there is like " too many features"

or "stupid orange light"

and "is this RPG or something"

could be "wth, the weapon sounds are like fieworks which exploded at water"

 

i love rap and rock.

 

SA was ALMOST like an RPG IMO. because of (ex: stamina, muscle, stamina)

No.. he was infiltrating the organization and then took it over.... Tommy was a willing participant in his missions-- doing stuff to benefit Tommy, Carl was not-- he was forced to do nearly all his missions.... Carl had scruples, Tommy was a psycho... who would be funner to play as??

 

SA was "ALMOST" alot of things.... a few changes would have been great---

 

For instance, giving you the option of modding cars was good, but not letting you race with them was not.
