Too early for me to tell. V is great but IV was my favorite game this entire console generation. SA, however, is not even in the running. IMO

 

Since everyone is using all of the games here's my list:

 

IV / V

V / IV

Vice City

San Andreas

GTA III

GTA:A

 

I haven't played enough of the Stories games to put them in there.

To start I would say that everybody bitched when GTAIV came out too but after a few months people stopped so this is nothing new, and this also goes for every other series out there.
Example: The devs change a feature or tweaks it then around half of the people will bitch about the change and then the other half will love it.

 

Anyways I would like too put GTAV on top, but because of all the time I've spent with GTA:SA and MTA:SA(Multiplayer mod) I'll have to put GTA:SA on top because of just that. However that can change when GTA:O comes out, so who knows.

 

Anyway here is the list

1. GTA: SA
2. GTA V
3. GTA IV

GTA V (story, map, side missions)
GTA: San Andreas (story, map, side missions)

GTA Vice City (story, map)

GTA 3 (side missions)

GTA IV (map)

 

 

GTA 3 was fantastic at the time, sure, but these are comparisons and it's now incredibly dull. GTA IV was the hugest disappointment, in my opinion, as the city was truly empty, suffocating and dull.

Gta 3 and Vice City were groundbreakers for the time but San Andreas basically set the mode for the entire series as far as options and gameplay variety in generial atleast in my opinion hands down. Don't get me wrong I liked Gta 4's story but atleast to me that's all it had goin' for it I mean yeah the city felt like an actual city but at the same time it had limited replayability value the DLC's helped but not by that much like dude above already said it felt empty. From what I've seen in videos and all of that they've brought back certain SA elements Gta IV was seriously lacking which seems like a overdue readition but I guess regardless atleast for me San Andreas hands down.

IV, SA and finally V. V made some great improvements but they won't make up for massive f*ck ups with the basics.

1. Tie between V and IV for me as the newest game is improvement is some areas and heavy downgrade in others.

2. VC, just a bit after the first place due to the age and engine limitations. It's still great in terms of atmosphere and soundtrack.

3. III

4. SA

 

But seriously, it's just another let's start a fight tonight type of topic. Why the hell people are making them? And it's beyond me how people can put SA before V. Nostalgia is the only answer for this.

The irony in your post is that you complain and state that these type of topics start fights, then question why people put SA over V...hypocrite much?

 

Anyways, just because SA is dated now, does not take away from the fact that some people enjoyed it more (at that time) then the current games.

 

Deal with it as no one is questioning your tastes.

GTA Series that I like so much:

 

GTA V, because has great graphic, draw distance is the best ever than other GTAs series, water and waves is amazing, gameplay and animation improved, many vehicles, driveable planes, realistic vehicles traffic and the peds is very realistic.

 

GTA SA, many things to do, lot of vehicles, etc.

 

 

GTA Series that I didn't like it so much

 

GTA IV, the maps isn't more bigger than SA, cars handling realistic, animation and ragdoll is nice, unfortunately the most I hate is can't drive the plane.

 

GTA Series that I hate so much

 

GTA VC, can't swim, can't control the camera while in the vehicles, water has bad texture, bad aiming, map is small, etc.

 

GTA III, bad water texture, bad graphics, total vehicles is less, map is small, etc.

No, it isn't.
  • VC
  • SA
  • IV
  • V

GTA VC, can't swim, can't control the camera while in the vehicles, water has bad texture, bad aiming, map is small, etc.

And what do you expect? It's 12 years old game! For it's time it was far better than most of games now. Same goes for III. Edited by AnDReJ98

1. GTA V for cool gameplay and the environment is much more modern

2. GTA IV for story

3. GTA SA is cool too, because it has 3 cities
