Most favorite GTA:

Grand Theft Auto IV

why?

Beautiful City, Great Storyline and even Bowling,

 

Least favorite GTA:

Grand Theft Auto Advance

why?

Graphics looks dull, Same-a*s city with straight street grid (makes me confused to travel the map) and Sh*tty storyline

Vice City will always be my favorite. I'm not crazy about San Andreas, even though I think San Andreas and GTA V are better, I don't necessarily like it better. If I could do with Tommy in Vice City what I'm able to do with my character(s) in San Andreas/V, there'd be no contest.

I didn't play all of them. I think I started to play to GTA with 'GTA: Vice City' but I never played seriously and never finished it. I could star to count from 'GTA: San Andreas'. I suppose previous GTA were a sh*t. From those games I think the best GTA was 'GTA: San Andreas' and the worst... I don't know... 'GTA IV' had a good story but some playability problems and failures too. I prefer their DLC. As to 'GTA V' the playability was good as a graphics but the story was shorty and I expected more. It was a disappointing game like my intercourses LOL

You’re really missing out on some great games. GTA III, Vice City, GTA IV, EFLC, CTW are all worth playthroughs if you get the chance.;)

My favorite would probably have to be IV, it's just action packed and fun I wish they kept all the beta stuff (I usually say that about every other GTA especially San Andreas). And my least favorite would honestly probably be Tbogt because yes it was hilarious and Luis is one of my favorite protagonists but it has very few replayable missions and other missions I just find myself questioning if I should even try to beat it again.

My favorite to least favorite GTA's:

 

1. GTA IV.

2. GTA The Lost and Damned.

3. GTA Vice City.

4. GTA San Andreas.

5. GTA III.

6. GTA Vice City Stories.

7. GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony.

8. GTA Liberty City Stories .

9. GTA 2.

10. GTA V.

 

GTA IV is the best by far; The best protagonist, the best story, a lot of fun things to do, less than San Andreas but still, the best. GTA V lacked a lot of that, the story was the worst, it was too simple, the dialogues had no sense, most of them were fights caused by dumb reasons, most of the returning characters were killed off or treated like bums, the missions were kinda fun at first but then it gets boring, seriously, is there nothing else to do apart from doing heists? Yeah, GTA 5 has better graphics, animations, realism and stuff, but realism isn't everything, almost all of the fun stuff that was in previous games, like arcades, fast food, taxi missions, dancing, were either removed or added to the game without the ability of interacting with 'em. When in a place like San Andreas, that would fit the ambience pretty well.

At this point in time, it's hard to say my personal choice on this matter since every game has qualities that I like. If I had to rank them though, it would probably look like this.

 

1). Vice City
2). Episodes from Liberty City
3). GTA IV

4). San Andreas

5). GTA V

6). Vice City Stories

7). Chinatown Wars

8). Liberty City Stories

9). GTA III

10). GTA 2

11). GTA 1

12). London 1969

 

It's funny, because even though GTA III and CW (which is alot better than people give credit for) are ranked low, I still love those as well. My relationship with the top-down games is so-so. They haven't aged particularly well, but they still have their spot in the franchise's history.

I can say, confidently, that GTA 5 is the worst GTA game I have ever played. Bearing in mind, I have played every GTA from GTA 3 onwards, GTA 5 has to be the worst for me. I felt like it was a huge letdown. For one thing, they left out so much of San Andreas (San Fierro and Las Venturas) and replaced it with a map that is lacking in so many areas. It would have been so cool to see San Fierro and Las Venturas in HD graphics, but for some reason, they were never added! The Online portion of the game has so many problems, too. Rockstar seem to be encouraging griefers to give new players a hard time and it's only gotten worse through the years!

Having to go through paywalls, griefers and the boring map is the bane of my existence.


I see it like this:

GTA 4- Best Story and main character

GTA Vice City- Best Soundtrack

GTA San Andreas- Best Map

GTA 3- Best leap forward for GTA (From 2D to 3D- a great transition)

GTA LCS- Best Portable GTA game

1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - This game was my childhood, enough said.

2. Grand Theft Auto IV - Excellent setting, great protagonist, enthralling storyline. Many people seem to have little taste for the dark atmosphere in this game, but personally I loved it.

3. Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony - I don't know why but I loved this game so much. I loved the idea of turning a morbid rendition of New York into a glitzy, glamorous metropolis. The protagonist was just generally a great guy, and once again, the setting was fantastic.

4. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - I previously allowed this game to consume my life, until San Andreas came along, and I moved on. But playing this game was great, and I have many great memories of it, even if the map was a bit small.

5. Grand Theft Auto V: A good game, I like the idea of having 3 protagonists, although it DID make the game shorter. Personally, I liked the San Andreas version of LS much better, as I feel the LS in GTA V had just become consumed by Vinewood Culture, and the game was centred too much on glamour, without a coming of age story like in GTA San Andreas.

Honestly, I can easily say what's my favourite GTA and my least favourite GTA but I can't really decide what's in 2nd place, 3rd place, 4th place, etc.

So I decided to rate the GTAs by universe.

 

3D:

 

1. SA

2. VC

3. III

4. VCS

5. LCS

 

HD:

 

1. IV

2. V

3. TBOGT

4. TLAD

10. Online (I don't want to put TLAD as my second-least-favourite GTA as it's a great game)

 

2D:

 

1. CTW

2. II

3. I

4. London

5. Advance

1. San Andreas - legendary game, could name 50 reasons why

2. IV(TBoGT/TLaD) - physics are awesome, fun, cool storyline

3. V - also fun, but Online is ruined with the futuristic flying cars and bullsh*t.

4. Vice City Stories - newer, better graphics, some details, you can SWIM

5. Vice City - I like the 80s vibe, and the sunny city

6. Chinatown Wars (got it on my phone, pretty fun when travelling or in school)

7. III - Very fun game, especially the gore.

8. Liberty City Stories -not much of a fan of the 3D era Liberty City, and didn't play it much

9. GTA II - Simply because why not?

10. GTA 1(London 1968/1969) - 1st GTA, and it is awesome.

11. Advanced - Played it for like 5 minutes and didn't like it one bit, the FPS is bad, graphics are pixelated, etc.

Storywise i never cared too much about stories in games until recently, my favourite would be the one where there's a lot of quality humour, preferably toilet, dark and some random, maybe like Cyanide & Happiness, i don't like sexual humour too much

 

ON TOPIC: Some people find V's story to be awesome and some the exact opposite. Well lemme tell ya wut i denk: i still dislike it because of the quote that i already mentioned somewhere: "OMG my brother is a homo" and many other stuff, but i'm not sure if i hate it as there are at least a few awesome missions and lines but in general it isnt really polished enough, i like Franklin and Lamar but i dislike Lester and some others. I like the intro after Prologue and some missions involving Lamar and Franklin, not necessarily both in the same mission. One thing i found interesting about dr. Friedlander is that he doesnt believe in evil

As for San Andreas, it's just like many pointed out, story all over the place but only after The Green Sabre mission

As for 3D Era games in general most stories, just like the games themselves, had some kind of charm that make you wanna replay again and many or most characters are memorable, some of my favourite are all the protags, The Truth, Wu Zi Mu, Ryder, Big Smoke, Ken Rosenberg, Mercedes Cortez, Maria, Phil Cassidy, Reni and some others i can't think of right now

As for IV, the story is deep and thorough if thats the right word :pp
