I personally choose Vice City. I mean it doesn't sound original now because so many movies and games are probably like it but I think it was one of the first if not the first to come up with such a storyline.

 

Tommy Vercetti got set up by Sonny and did 15 years, he gets out of jail but they don't want him in LC no more, so they send him down south for their operations there. The deal go's bad and Tommy is yet again ambushed. Sonny is still pissed off even more now and Tommy has to get the money back and build an empire.

 

However he later or more less knows in the end that Sonny betrayed him, so therefore keeps his own empire and kills Sonny.

-Vice City

-Vice City Stories

-San Andreas

 

 

Both Vice City, & VSC went into pretty deep detail about the story, well, Stories went into more detail. Vice City had that feel to it, mainly

the city, but it's story line gave it that magic. Years passed after the release of VSC and we all wondered what'd be like before Vice City,

then came Vice City Stories which in my opinion, had the best storyline.

IV got best and most emotional story so far.I also liked stories of TLAD and VCS.My favorite game was Vice City,but it was basicaly Scarface storyline so nothing new was in it.

When i think about it GTA IV storyline wins. It wasn't based on any movie and the atmosphere was just perfect. But VC and SA story were great too.

People really need to watch Scarface and play VC. While it obviously draws inspiration it's not a copy and paste job.

 

In saying that GTA IV's story is the best IMO.

I don't think IV had a great storyline. It was ok but it wasn't great, there were quite a few pointless irrelevant things that took place. Personally I think Vice City had the best story line seeing as how throughout the story things you had done in the beginning in-turn effect how the story progressed later on. For example when you kill that cook in the back alley and take his cell-phone. Later on in the game his contacts and others who had his number contact you through the phone expecting him to pick up but then they realize it's someone different. Or that one mission for Diaz when you dress up like a Cuban and start a war between the Haitians and Cubans which you later end up being apart of. All the missions in Vice City were connected in some way. Most in IV were quite irrelevant as to what was actually going on, for example all of Bruices missions or Ray's missions with the diamonds. A lot of what happened in IV didn't make much sense either, like Dimitri's hard-on to kill you. There was no need for him to betray Niko in the first place and after running him out of Hove Beach it should have been left at that. No more, no less. GTA IV itself is great game, I play it everyday but as for it being a "great" storyline it sucked.

Dimitri's betrayal was just executed differently to what we're used to seeing. He had connections with Bulgarin. The whole diamond angle to me was a cross over point Niko never intended to get involved in even though they were on the ship he was on. It set up the under tone of the game.

 

Sure there were filler missions, but the majority of the missions for Ray, U.L Paper, Gravelli were closely linked in order to help get Darko to the U.S.

 

Lets also remember VC was a rags to riches game where the motivations were very different. GTA IV's story was gritty revenge and Niko's realization that the American Dream wasn't what he thought it would be.

 

GTA IV has a far better story and this coming from a long time VC fan.

I hated the story of IV. It was depressing, the game was depressing, and the mood was depressing. Im not saying i hate GTA IV, i just dont like the story. The ending was sad with either ending.

I voted for TLaD because I think the story, cut-scenes and all that stuff was perfectly directed to be both realistic and enjoyable. I loved the game atmosphere and the storyline was a cherry on the top of a cake.

Easily GTA III. I love the fact that your trying to work your way up through the criminal underworld, working for the people that want you dead. I'm amazed it hasn't had more votes.

Going for IV. I know GTA 3 should come 3rd and SA 2nd but GTA IV was amazing! Well, based on gameplay, I would go for GTA SA. GTA VC will come 4th for it's gameplay but it can be with GTA 3. Not much good ending of VC because I wished Diaz would have been alive. GTA IV surely brought some sad faces when Kate died but Roman's humour kept me happy. biggrin.gif

GTA IV is just because of ROMAN. HAHAHAHA.

That was awkward.

GTA IV is more than just Roman, mate.

It's a tie between V.C.S and IV for me. (Spoliers)

 

The relationship romance

Unlike most people I enjoyed Louise and Vic's relationship and really believed their was something special their unlike kate and niko which was clearly never going to work. This isn't a game about love stories but the fact i want Vic and Louise to be together says alot about the writing and storyline. Because i'm the last guy in the word to care about that sh*t. But it worked in this game so hats off to them

 

The deaths

I cant be a fair judge on this because when i played throw IV the first time it was with a mate and believe it or not i f*cking missed romans death. I was up getting a cup of tea or something. So i never trully saw his death ''live'' on tv. so i cant be a fair judge. I near cryed when Louise died so it would of been hard to top that anyway. But it was Roman so it's hard to say

 

The ending.

V.C.S without question. I think the reason i highly rate v.c.s so much is the ending. Unlike every other gta this game truly has a proper ending answering all questions. I love how the game doesn't just end with one final mission it happens over the last two or 3. IV does this too. But i was alot more emotionally invovled in V.C.S it just felt more personal ( Once again the death is the most important part and i missed it the first time in iv so i'm being unfair)

 

Also in the last mission niko's hysterical crying is a bit of a turn off. Dont get me wrong it's understanable and all but it's a bit much

 

Where's vic has pure RAGE towards mendez it makes the mission so much more enjoyable because you see both sides of vic. When his talking to diaz and phil you can see just how much his hurting and his near crying when his talking to phil about louise which gets you in but as soon as the shooting starts it's all buisness and the tone and way vic is yelling really sums up just how pissed of you are at that maggot

 

I still consider it a tie because without truly experiencing romans death it kinda makes it hard to say just how emotinal i would of got and that's the crucial part of the story

You're too cowardly to even take the heat for it from the people you troll, instead running to the moderators wasting our time with sh*t you started. GTFO.

I voted San Andreas, really overall IV would come first for me. However with R* taking a very different route with IV I have to judge it seperately.

 

The reason I voted SA is because I just feel like they got the balance right. The story was apart of everything else in the game, it tied together with everything. In some ways while playing IV I felt like the story was completely seperate from everything else. In SA the gangs were around, the casinos were around, people who relied on your sucess in the story. The theme of the game was perfect, it not only captured the 90's LA gang scene perfectly but it was really gripping with a balance of fun missions and really personal ones that made you care about what you were doing. Scenes like where you're reunited with Sweet, it was a big deal. Or in the last mission, you had built up to that moment throughout the game and it was satisfying and felt worth it. So I chose SA because I feel the story complimented everything that was great about the game.

 

IV's story was epic, even on it's own without everything else. I could happily read IV's story as a book or watch it as a movie. The struggle as an immigrant chasing a dream that doesn't exist, it was perfect. It was gritty, it was challenging, and you didn't always walk away feeling like a boss. You suffered the consequences. IV wasn't glorifying being a criminal, you worked your way to the top - which left you in a no better position than when you started. There was no rags to riches, there was a realistic look on crime and the suffering involved. What was especially great about the story is that Niko came to LC to escape his violent past and escape his enemies, not to create new ones. He was a reluctant criminal and that made it all the more gripping for me.

 

I really can't truly criticise any R* storyline, GTA or non GTA. They never dissapoint me, but those two really stand out.
