GTA 3 Vs. Vice City

Recommended Posts

xNamexTakenx

I saw there was a thread for Vice City Vs. San Andreas. So, I decided to make on for Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City. After all, those were the first 2 games for the GTA 3 era. I bet you can compare these 2 games better than Vice City and San Andreas. As you all know, both these games were heavily influenced by Scarface. There is a webpage comparing GTA and Scarface, and it mostly used GTA 3 and Vice City. So, which one did you like better?

 

I liked Vice City better. I just beat it yesterday, and really liked it. The storyline was great! And I liked how it had a lot of similarities with Scarface. The missions were great, too. I liked how you could buy properties and stuff. It's awesome! The city is way better than Liberty City, in my opinion. Vice City, as we all know is based on Miami and is very tropical! Liberty City is based on New York and is too urban-like.

 

But, don't get me wrong. GTA 3 is still a great game! But, it doesn't have that good graphics, not that that really matters, though. The storyline was good and all. But, you couldn't do as many things as you can in Vice City. And plus, Vice City is way bigger and stuff. I liked how it was based in the '80's. That was cool!

 

Well, it's your turn! Which one did you like better?

I used to like GTAIII better, but i like vice city better now, when i got it for PC, i never done the missions, i just downloaded complete save files. And i like the missions on vice city better then gta3 missions, and the cars on vice city, especially the infernus, in my opinion are a huge improvement over GTAIII.

For characters and storyline, it has to be VC.

 

Overall, though, III reigns supreme as my favourite game of any type, not just GTAs. The atmosphere is great, plus it has Chatterbox, the funniest radio station in any GTA bar none.

 

III and VC are still my two favourite GTA games. SA, LCS and VCS are all still good, but they just can't compare to III and VC.

Vice City for me hands down. I do think III is an awesome game, but "the further you get the more people hate you" scenario gets on my tits after a while. Every where you go you get shot at.

GTA III was the most improvement from previous GTAs, IMO but Vice City was a great improvement from GTA III. Both were great games but Vice City appeals to me most.

Wow there sure are alot of these threads.

 

Anyway between the two, it's got to be Vice.

 

There's nothing wrong with GTA III however. I played it before Vice. (Actually I've played every GTA as they came out)

 

My opinion is Vice City has a better atmosphere, and story, but GTA III still holds its own for a 6 year old game. The thing I like about GTA III over Vice is the gangs are tougher, and there's more Mafia involvement.

 

In actual fact it's quite sad comparing GTA games to eachother, because they're all awesome in their own way. Atleast they all take on cheap ass ripoffs.

 

GTA forever!!!!!!!!!!!

I play on the PC and VC and III where my Favourite(s), I'd have to choose Vice city to be my favourite I think the graphics where much better and was more clear.

 

One of the things I don't like about GTA III is that it has no interiors.

This is real easy to settle (on PC): "Vice City" because you can get the Liberty City mod and have both--and have cycles in both.

Yeah that was so bad,i almost couldn't drive a car in the city after some missions.That mafias with shotguns,i don't think i'll forget them.

I think gta3 can have the best atmosphere ever saw in a gta game for me.

Liking the enthusiasm here pal. 😄

 

OT for the topic from 1912

 

Both III & VC show their age, but the atmosphere in III still has a certain magic that is still unmatched 17 years later, so for that reason, I'll give III the slight edge.

Vice City. Man, that atmosphere...

Also whenever I start play GTA3, I get confused that you can't leap out of a moving vehicle. A small thing, small enough that you don't consciously think about it most of the time.

GTA3 Liberty City looks like Gotham City but with Madonna as the mayor, i could drive there a Tumbler or Batmobile while listening to Madonna's song "Music"

Vice City on the other hand seems too small compared to VC, also the only part that looks like real-life Miami is the Ocean Drive i believe and maybe the skyscrapers on second island from a distance

Holy necro. Vice City is definitely far superior to GTA 3 which hasn't aged nearly as well, the huge improvement in terms of story and characters (especially the MC, I mean claude is nothing compared to Tommy) and the more fun city definitely make it better.

While i do like the dark, gritty atmosphere of GTA III, Vice City does have much more features and a more detailed map to roam around in.

 

So, yeah, Vice City's my favorite out of the two.

Replying to a really old post here , but Vice City 

 

A lot of unique features , detail & not to mention it's set in 1986 ..

 

I really enjoyed GTA III's atmosphere being dark & all, but with Vice City & all the bright colors i think it just makes the game look more alive .

I will admit, I like GTA III's down-and-dirty urban atmosphere a little more, but Vice City is just an all-around better game imo. Better story, better protagonist, better map, better soundtrack, better weapons, better vehicles, better features, better everything really. I know, alot of it is subjective. I love both games anyway so it doesn't matter much to me.

We often talk about this with my coworker, we can't decide which one of the two is better. I acknowledge that GTA III was extremely groundbreaking and did pretty much everything right. But I still prefer Vice City, for me it has the perfect length, good gameplay, the map is nice, it has tons of mods (the merit here is that it attracted a huge fanbase I guess), the soundtrack is the best a videogame has ever had in my opinion, the plot is very fitting and perfect for a GTA.
It was very hard to top GTA III but I ended up playing Vice City more. GTA III feels small a bit sooner, you have fewer things to do with it.

lll was groundbreaking, set up for future games and the game that moved away from 2D aerial view. Vice City for sure, but I'll always love lll too. I've kept VC with the guide all these years. LOL. 🙃

Vice City, especially if you focus on the aspects of storyline and characters. You have a much more developed protagonist [insert a joke about Claude's lack of ability to speak here], same applies for the other characters. Themes of the storyline and dialogues are better in Vice City, too. Outside of all that story/characters related stuff, I also liked audio (and I'm not actually thinking about the radio stations! 😜) and gunplay. Oh, and the fact that Vice City didn't feel as generic as Liberty City also makes GTA VC a better game than III.
