100% is something else, Oysters make dating Girlfirends easier or avoidable.

Weapon skill bothers me, particularly with two handed weapons. I don't like to 'level up' my weapons in these types of games, I'd like to collect the weapons and then shoot and move around. Unfortunately these upgrades come much later because you have to max out your weapon skill and thus the early gunplay with shotguns, AKs, etc. seem boring.

- Weapon sounds

They are absolute sh*t in this game. Every weapon type has the same sound for each weapon just lowered or higher in pitch. I can understand why it’s like this though I mean Rockstar was pushing its limits on the PS2 already.

I also think the gun sounds from GTA Vice City were better and they should have been kept. But were hardware limitations the reason they were changed, aren't they just simple audio files? The gun sound replacement mod I use is just a few MBs.

GTA SA the longest and arguably the best story, had some most the best missions and side missions and coolest stuffs or 100 %. It was the true successor of 3, VC felt no more than an extension but SA took it to a totally different level enhancing everything the border between 3D and HD, even it successors LCS and VCS had many cool stuffs featured in SA totally missing. But what I disliked most was too nanny collectibles. Spraying tags was fun, true gangsta life but collecting Oysters, Horseshoes, Snapshots were so much of a pain !!

Lol, what is it with your dislike for VC? It brought many improvements and was a really impressive game for its time (even if admittedly, the second half of the story/city feel a bit emptier than the first). Also LCS and VCS were just portable spin-offs that weren't meant to be on the level of SA when Rockstar North were working on the real true successor of GTA III, GTA IV. ;)

 

Anyway, I think snapshots and horseshoes are still okay as collectables, snapshots lead the player to some cool landmarks in San Fierro and horseshoes fit contextually well in Las Venturas. But oysters are godawful, it's boring to fly around the map in a Sea Sparrow and I dislike underwater stuff in GTA games.

VC had many issues it was just 3 with minor improvement a lot more livelier and less harder. The worst of all was the small map, you can basically explore the whole beach + main land in 3 minutes. And the small land surrounded by huge body of water that had 0 use other than being drowned.  Dont get me wrong I liked VC but find it overrated, but I prefer it to 3 for featuring a speaking main guy. But in terms of taking it to the next level the successor of 3 is SA, SA's is 4 while 5 is just 4 enhanced visually, VC is to 3 what 2 was to 1 and 5 is to 4. Regardless 3, VC,SA, 4 (including EFLC), 5 all are great games in their own all have their flaws but are some of the greatest games ever made.

 

 

And yeah you are right , it would be cool if only Tags and Snapshots existed they are unique and all but Oysters was such a pain especially those so deep under water that kept drowning me and Horseshoes though not as tedious , collecting them was not as fun and yield nothing useful. Has no effect on gambling skills or anything to be honest, it for example has very little effect on my video poker result from my experience....

I prefer the maps of Liberty City and San Andreas over Vice City too, using the same main north-to-south road in my experience makes the Taxi mission more boring compared to other games for example. Still not a bad map IMO, but I feel it could have been better as well.

As far as I've gathered, the luck stat that increases by collecting Horseshoes does absolutely nothing. I think the Horseshoes are still the most rewarding collectable in the game, the high-tier weaponry that spawn at the Four Dragons Casino like the combat shotgun and satchel charges are useful. Oysters have the most useless reward, it just makes dating girlfriends easier.

It's absolutely true. The minigun sounds like a toy. The unique good-hearing weapon is the desert eagle.

Agreed.

 

The weapon sounds were very poor from the pistols up to the small machine guns. They all sound like loud, repetitive hand claps. The assault rifles sounds were ok, but yet still nothing special. 
 

I had use the IV weapons sounds mod to make it much better.

The assault rifles were horrible I mean the AKs sound was basically the M4s. It was just reused. I prefer Vice City’s sounds.

Weapon sounds are amazing, to each their own, but like you I like it. Also just loved the Bazooka (Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher), so much better than the regular and the ability to lock on to targets is amazing, made stuffs like vertical bird a piece of cake, just parking the hydra and easily shooting down the planes and boats.. But my issue is with missions removing/replacing weapons (really pissing when 8000 ammo + Minigun gets removed), but this is a classic gta problem not isolated to just SA !

Even if I appreciate the presence of girlfriends as a part of the immersion purpose they are all insipid excepting the very good Michelle Cannes. Rockstar should have put more work on their personality and created funnier dating activities like driving a full speed with Michelle for example.

The fact that "aiming" with bare hands scares the sh*t out of shopkeepers, as well as harasses drug dealers.

The dating was definitely underwhelming in San Andreas. Feels very tacked on. They did a better job in GTA IV I thought. The dates just feel very awkward on SA. I thought the best thing about the girlfriends was being able to play multiplayer with two controllers.

I too hate so many collectables.Spraying tag is fun at first, but then becomes kinda repetitive to do 100s. Oysters and Horshoes are so tedious to collect, so boring, time consuming, I rather wish sa focussed more on gang wars and stuffs instead of so many collectables. Also Horshoes have0 effect on gambling outcome, and some Oysters are buried too deep underwater with so much obstacles. Snapshots are the only one that's fun to me. And spraying tags would be better if there was 50, its still ok but 100 is too repeatitive. Oysters and Horshoes are the worst things ever.

I hate how you can’t downgrade to having one pistol or sub machine gun. Like come on that’s some Saints Row The Third/ IV sh*t. I honestly prefer using a Tec 9 one handed it looks great and it seems fit for one handed as opposed to two.

I hate how when you go into an interior while wanted theres NO WAY to come out safely. I mean come on in VC you could shoot outside from the inside like the HD games

I hate how you cant downgrade your weapon stance, aim, or Duel Weilding 

I hate how the brass knuckles swap out your fist rather than a melee weapon

I hate how you cant aim and shoot backwards

I hate how useless the sniper is

I hate how useless the silence pistol is (its a all around bad weapon except MAYBE the damage. It cant be duel weilded, shoots slower than the pistol, and doesn't share ammo with the normal pistol)

I hate how health packs are super rare

I hate how all three pistols use a different aiming animation that isnt interchangable

I hate how there is no unique reward for completing paramedics

I hate how you cant rob stores

I hate how you take fall damage of small drops

It might be, but unfortunately, they still suck to be honest.

 

Just listen to the Kruger/Ruger and M4 shot sounds in Vice City, or AK-47 and Carbine in GTA IV. Basically the same sound with a different pitch, but they still sound dope.

First of all I will start with Driving School. I would like more Turismo than Super GT if you beats all Medals Bronze, and Infernus (Faster Car) than Hotknife if you beat all Medals Gold (Bullet is ok for me) 

 

Then I will name the Savanna in Wang Cars instead Jester (this last one should be, because is one of those cars you have to search)

 

The fact too than just one Sandkind is appeared, and not always is there (should be like NGR-500 Bike, which can find 5 in all the Map)

 

And some interiors eliminated, like Donuts Store, the fact than only can get inside the Meat Factory and that place where you have to take a photo of Caligulas Casino) and others parts

 

And finally the fact than cant conquest territories in San Fierro and Las Venturas
