I like the SA voice actors more and know them better, Sam L Jackson, Chris Penn (rip), MC Eiht, Kid Frost, Ice-T and more decent voice actors. Tommy's voice is like he's 50 years old..

 

Then I don't feel the 80's generation I dunno, but I just don't. The 90's are more familiar so that's why the music in VC sucks to me.

 

And I'm 16.

I was born in 1986 (Making me 22), so I grew up as a teenager in the mid/late90s (Moreso 00s), but I think 80s music is alot better.

 

Funny thing is I should relate to the 1990s alot better, but I feel more comfortable with the 1980s.

 

I don't really like rap, and that's probably why I rarely listened to any other stations bar K-DST in SA. In VC almost every station appealed to my taste in culture/music.

 

It's a good thing we are all different, because the world would be sh*t boring if we all liked the same things.

I agree with the D.O.C. avatar. I just done Vice City's storyline now and I gotta say what a boring final cutscene. On San Andreas most of the survived characters appeared while in VC last mission not even Sonny or Lance appear in cutscenes after died. Both are great overall.

Are you saying Sonny, and Lance don't appear in cutscenes, because they died? confused.gif

In the end there is no cutscene they talk or you talk to them like asking why did they sell you out, but when you kill Smoke in SA there's a little convo till he dies.

You do know that Ray Liotta was exactly 47 years old when he did his VO's for VC in 2002 don't you? He wasn't 50. he was 47. Plus, the 80's generation of bands was much much much better than the mainstream stuff we have today. Even though I didn't get to experience much of the 80's life wise, I have good enough taste to know that 80's music outdoes 90's music (preferabbly rap) anyday.

 

I didn't like the VO's for San Andreas. Everybody sounds the same. The atmosphere is gloomy and dark.

90's rap is the golden part, only the late 80's of rap was good, I don't know but the rap songs are pretty boring in VC, while the radio with Nuthin But a G Thang etc.. in SA just owns, complete awesome hip hop. And you said it yourself Ray Liotta was 47, not much difference to 50 right? So Tommy should have had better voice actor his face doesn't suit 50 or 47 years to be exact look. CJ had the right young voice to his age. Plus there's pretty much no rap station on VC.

For me now, Still SA. The only reason why, is because VC As I said is too easy for me, I prefer hard, and the cars are harder to drive in SA, Which I prefer (I like harder). If VC Was much harder, and some of SA Features, I'd like VC Better.

I hate to break it to you, but the thing you think sounds like "rap" in VC is actually Funk & Soul. I'd take Indeep over Tupac anyday to be honest with you. I can atleast understand what they're saying. Thats also saying something big considering I hate Rap & Hip-Hop all together. I don't find Jazz or Light Funk though. It sooths me. Calm lyrics featuring the likes of BB King, Louis Armstrong, and hell, even Parliment.

 

Tommy's face actually looked like he was around 40 or 50 to be dead honest with you. He had a bit of a thick beard, visible wrinkles, and a good voice over to match him. CJ was just the same everytime. Nothing special about Carl Johnson. His name sounds pretty plain to. I mean, how many times do you run across the name Johnson in your local phonebook?

 

Vercetti sounds unique and exciting, and full of adventure. If Tommy were to ever face CJ man to man, fist to fist, there's no doubt that Tommy V would dominate.

 

Enough said.

You have your own opinion and I have mine over this.

For me SA is much better because:

-better voice actors (at least for me).

-better story

-newer functions (modding car, burglary, swimming, crouching, drive-by's..)

-better radio station

-more things to do..

-better characters, I liked Lance and Diaz in VC then that's about it. In SA I liked almost all of the characters expect for a few of the one's from Las Venturas.

 

That's enough to prove SA is better for me.

Sorry. I couldn't help you saying that SA has the better Storyline and characters when in SA those are it's two major weak points.

 

But yes. I guess everybody has their own opinion.

 

Oh, you can do drive-by's in VC to. You can also make your character crouch with the R3 button cool.gif

Nope. You crouch with L3.

 

I like both SA and VC. I like VC a bit more because it's more of a simple game for me. SA just has a lot of stuff. I just wish that VC has more special proofed vehicles and the features that SA has, like swimming, manual aim on all weapons, moving while crouching, etc. on the PS2 version. But basically, I still like both SA and VC.

Check on your PS2. Put in VC and try to crouch with the R3 button.

Yeah I did put in VC and I pressed R3 several times and all it did was looking behind the player in gameplay. I went to the setup controls from setup 1-4 and L3 was still crouch. =\

 

Who cares if I'm getting off topic, this is just ridiculous. L3 button is crouch on PS2 version. Unless you prove me wrong by showing a video of a PS2 controller plugged in the PS2 and you pressing the R3 button which makes the player crouch then I'll be wrong and you'll be right.

I know but you can't move crouching, like when you put target on he crouches in some gangsta way. Whatever, I like the storyline alot in SA and also the characters, Ryder owns.

Vice City anyday over SA, the storyline was probably the best of all gta games and the soundtrack was also the best. They managed to get that perfect 80's feel to the game.

 

I hated that gangsta sh*te in SA and I hope it never returns.

For some reason in VC, The storyline confused me, the game was too bright for me too, but I wanted it to be a bit darker (Like SA Or GTA3). And the huge map in SA, And how high you can fly, and a load of new features I enjoy that weren't in VC, So I'd choose SA

My hope is it will return a few more times probably. And I really hope they set more GTA's on the West Coast with the perfect West Coast rap radio's. And when I talked about race I mean people say SA sucks because of this "gangsta sh!t" don't talk about it, but I just noted.

How do you mean, I'm entittled to an oppinion and my oppinion is that SA sucked very much because of that ridiculous Gangsta sh*te. VC was far more superior then SA, in everything soundtrack and storyline, characters. The only good thing for SA was that it was fun to roam around in it's unneccesary huge world and that's it.

Actually it's pretty fun, San Andreas IMO is better than Vice City in every aspect and that's just me, there's at least one radio I like in SA unlike VC, I like most of the characters (Ryder the best), I like that you are supposed to be against drugs, storyline was top notch and that's just compared to something VC had, then the new things SA had simply put it ahead of VC, swimming, new characters sort, nice cool map (you have something to do there unlike in VC, now after I am now done with the story-line there's nothing to do in VC. San Andreas has a lot of cool stuff, and bigger, deffer & harder missions, I did Vice City in less than two weeks while SA took me like a month and possibly a little bit more.

 

 

And in addition to all, Liverpool the best team!

San Andreas was better than vice city. so was gta 3 and lcs. I thought the storyline in vice city was weak and way too short. I was so disappointed when it came out. i was expecting too much. But when san andreas came out, it was amazing as they added so much to the game and made a really long story line.

I almost agree with all of it, though not with the disappointing thing, the story was quite short and weak IMO, San Andreas is better than VC in every aspect if you ask me, way too many side missions and the assets kill it a lot!

Vice City had that feeling of "Scarface", you grew to power and you get ultimate power eventually. The music set the tone for the setting as did the characters. It was just a very good game.

 

San Andreas, I loved it, I beat it many times. But Vice City beats it, just because I didn't like the storyline of San Andreas, it just seemed to unrealistic (and I understand that GTA isn't a 'realistic' game, but the storyline just wasn't there for me). But I did love san Andreas, for the simple fact it got bigger and more sh*t was to do.

I agree totally.

 

San Andreas started to annoy me when i could call myself a Gambling, gangster, pilot, deep sea diving man, who owns shares in casinos and buisnesses across the state
