Another member in the forums was talking about the most popular gang in Grand Theft Auto, according to some poll he'd done on other gaming websites. I wanted to see if his results would hold water if presented in a similar fashion but on a solely-GTA focused forum, this is why I'm asking you:

 

Which is your favourite GTA 3-canon gang?

 

The list includes (in no particular order):

  • Leone Family Mafia
  • Forelli Family Mafia/Forelli Brothers
  • Sindacco Family Mafia
  • Vercetti Gang
  • $outh$ide Hoodz
  • Grove Street Families
  • Ballas
  • Liberty City Triads
  • San Fierro Triads
  • Liberty City Yakuza
  • Da Nang Boys
  • Colombian Cartel
  • Diablos
  • Cholos
  • Sicilian Mafia
  • Diaz's Gang
  • Los Cabrones
  • Los Santos Vagos
  • Varrios Los Aztecas
  • San Fierro Rifa
  • Mendez Cartel
  • Uptown Yardies
  • Haitians
  • Vice City Biker Gang
  • Trailer Park Mafia
  • Streetwannabes/Sharks
  • Vance Crime Family
(If I've forgotten any, don't be afraid to tell me so I can add them to the list)

 

Thanks to Mercie (I believe it was him her (sorry) for making this into a poll for me. smile.gif

I can never recall seeing a member of the Sicilian Mafia outside of missions, therefore I did not include them. From what I can remember what we saw of them was simply Massimo Torini and Uncle Leone.

 

The Yakuza were probably my favourite GTA 3-canon gang, at the moment at least anyway.

Yeah even though they were the 'main antagonists' we only saw them in the last mission which is the worst type of 'antagonists' I think. So they should be scrapped but they had a big impact on the story of LCS (even if they were so quiet).

 

Then again neither the LC Bikers, Russian Mafia or Mendez Cartel are seen outside missions.

 

But still GSF are my favorite gang ever with a close second by the Mendez Cartel.

The Liberty City Bikers could be found while doing the Avenging Angels side-missions, while still not technically outside out a mission, they still had a street presence.

 

The Russian Mafia appeared around certain areas of San Andreas during their short stint in the storyline; if I remember correctly. They were there for a short period of time. But they were there... I think.

 

I haven't played VCS all the way through yet (I really do need to to be honest) so I wasn't aware of their lack of presence. I may remove them if that's the case.

While not outside missions the Mendez Cartel were too big and appeared in almost every mission at the end of VCS' storyline, so they deserve to be there, R* made too many models for their gang members so they weren't put in-game and there just something with them so they couldn't be put in-game. Where would their turf be, for instance? While outside the Mendez Mansion would be a good thing they would annoy you though so R* made it this way that they are storyline-only gang.

 

LC Bikers are only in missions, that's the keyword, Avenging Angel's works are missions as well, so they don't have any impact on the streets.

 

Russian Mafia are only seen in End of the Line and the mission where you and Smoke escape in a bike.

Very well. I will remove the LC Bikers and The Russian Mafia and replace them with the Sicilian Mafia.

But don't remove the Mendez Cartel because they are very influential to the storyline of VCS. Just a suggestion.

Vercetti's gang of course. Simply for the fact that they had regular gang fights without you having to make them.

Actually I like all the Sicilian gangs. Even if they were my sworn enemy.

 

I've alway found the life of Italian mobs interesting.

Colombian Cartel. Despite being your main enemy in GTA 3, I can't but help respect their sheer influence and power. They synthesised a new drug, SPANK, that's highly addictive and got them bottomless funds for a private army (in every sense of the word in terms of heavy weaponry) and even highly trained/organised commandoes who busted and kidnapped that Oriental Gentleman guy in the beginning when you was sprung. They even have death squads and SPANKED up madmen who acted as suicide bombers later in the game.

 

They also got extreme influence to the extent of having the CIA on side who even protect and help them out.

 

Despite not being 'cool' in the stylish/hip-hop sense of the word, by far they are the most powerfull gang in the entire GTA 3 canon, and I doubt that'll diminish too much at the end of the GTA 3 storyline - thats what counts the most for gangs IMO.

 

I'd albsolutely love them making a return in the Next GTA - maybe as rivals of the Zaibatsu - and you do missions for them to help them maintain that power. I know it's a totally different canon, but it'll save R* so much time and effort than designing a new super-organised gang from scratch. Maybe they can be drven underground after GTA 3, and be more of a secret society more involved in politics and taking total control of the city/cities, getting you and armies of street gang puppets to unwittingly help them carry out their evil agendas. ph34r.gif

I never thought of that, thought I haven't played GTA III for a long time. The Colombian Cartel were a private army and that alone sets them aside from all the other gangs in the GTA 3-era canon. I'd love to see them make a return in GTA NeXt. Maybe Cesar Vialpando can take over Catalina's place as their leader, seeing as how he's her cousin and all. lol.gif
