Poll about awareness

Do you think that, because GTA 1&2 can be downloaded for free, it will mean that people will stop complaining about graphics, when they see how good the gameplay is?

    • Yes, of course, who couldn't fall in love with top down after playing these games?

    • No, it'll take much more than 2 whole free games for these b******ds around here to quit whining about graphics.

Do you think the fact that Rockstar have released these two amazing games for free on PC, that it could help spread awareness of the Gameplay>Graphics arguement.

 

As they dont have to pay to experience it firsthand!

 

Maybe, it would stop people complaining about Chinatown Wars being a top-down 2D sh*t game (and none of those are true).

 

Your thoughts, if anyone still glances towards theses parts of the forumsa anymore :\

I don't mind the graphics. I mean they are ugly but it's an old game and I just play it for nostalgia's sake now. I prefer the newer titles (of course) but I play this to remember the good old days. Maybe I'll be doing the same with GTAIV in about 10 years.

I think they'll just keep whining about it.

 

Also, GTA 1, London and 2 aren't 2D! They are 3D, but just in top-down. Only cars and peds are 2D. I love to watch the GTA2 city in the level editor, as you can see things from a view like in GTA3 etc. tounge.gif Someone should make a mod so you can play GTA2 in GTA3-style. xD

 

GTA1 is rather boring but that's because I started with GTA2 and GTA2 is a big improvement compared to GTA1.

No matter what, as the graphics get better, people will whine about the previous graphics. Hell, in a few years when the PS4 or YBox (or whatever the new ones will be called) come out and have even better graphics, people will start saying how crappy the graphics were for PS3 and XBox 360. You just can't please the masses.

 

Honestly, though, I never played the original Grand Theft Auto game for the graphics; I played it for the fun because at the time, it was fresh and exciting (not to mention when I was still in school, we used to go to the computer lab at lunch and set up LAN to play). I should actually download it from R*'s website and play it again since it's been so long.

How can you not love the old top down GTA games? They're so fun and that's where it all began. I used to love playing lan with my buddies. I to this day don't know if I've ever even beat the game. I think I may have, but I'm not sure. And like Icarus said, your never going to be able to please everyone so screw em.

The people who bitch about the graphics probably wouldn't bother playing them regardless. Most people think all the controversy surrounding the franchise only started with III but I actually bought GTA 1 because I heard it might get pulled from the shelves & I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I've been a fan ever since.

Unfortunatley, i dont think people will stop being dumbasses when it comes to graphics. seriousley, i saw one person who said the classics should never have been made. If the classics hadnt been made, then neither would the preivious and new era games have been made. and on top of it all how is chinatown wars sh*t? its graphics are very good and its better than both gta 3 and vc, IMO

Speaking as a guy who has played the III-era games before trying these 2, I'd have to say that I understand precisely why these games were so much popular in their times. I absolutely love GTA2 and would even place it on par with GTA3 (please don't kill me). I haven't touched the story and I'm still enjoying collecting tokens to unlock the bonus levels, earning money from the bonuses (Expeditious Execution being my favorite) and stealing Special Agent cars to deliver them to the crushers and earn gang respect icon14.gificon14.gificon14.gif . The impossible-on-the-PC K/Fs are my only complaint about the game. Still GTA2, by far, is the only GTA where I've truly enjoyed creating mayhem. GTA1, however, is kind of a mixed bag for me. I'll have to say that its my least favorite GTA, maybe because I made the mistake of playing GTA2 first confused.gif . I like it still and am currently on the final section (Vice City-2) but I think I made the right decision by wanting to complete this before attempting GTA2's story missions. Unfortunately, I can't say that I speak for the majority. I wish I could because I realize how awesome these games are, despite their short-comings.
