The Deadite

Reasons why Vice City is better than V

Recommended Posts

GamesBoy316

Is this seriously necessary? You're juxtaposing a 2000s video game based on the 80s from the PS2 system to a more modern video game from a new console. There's obviously going to be disparities, especially since both of them are from different decades. So let's stop comparing the two already, because both games are good in their own way.

 

Just let people like us appreciate Vice City. If you have problems with that, then remember that this is the Vice City section.

Tommy Vercetti

 

Better storyline than V.

 

Much more fun

 

Funnier than V

 

Cops are fun to mess with, and throwing them into the water.

 

6 stars are the best.

Year doesn't make much difference in a a game being good, V is only 3 years old and the story and protagonist is better in VC, a 2002 game.

Memorable characters. Who cares about Michael's story for example after you have finished with the story.

Ahhh...I remember my first time i got my hands on a chainsaw. Good times I had using that to massacre NPC's. And lets not forget the job outfit Tommy got after the bank heist. R* made a nice friday the 13th reference right here. Edited by GTA_The_Series

Soundtrack is way better, cops are less aggressive and actually use nightsticks at one star, 100% really means doing everything unlike in V, money has to be earned with work and not by buying and selling stocks.

If R* will put Tommy in the future GTA 4/5 then those games will not have any speciallity. They will look like Vice City 2 or 3. So, R* will never keep Tommy again in future.

Early screenshot.

 

You know now that you mentioned it, it does look different from the final version.

 

Sorry for the off topic.

Notice how Tommy's face is complete as it was ment to look in the final game. Compare his face with a beta picture. Tommy's face looks very different. Look at @Passive Modes screenshot above ^^ That's a beta picture of Tommy holding a chainsaw. He looks a little fat to me when he was in his beta stages...or it just me? Lol :lol: Edited by GTA_The_Series

No idea. All I know is Tommy was the man and the chainsaw was an awesome part of that game.

- Cool interiors (North Point Mall and Malibu Club)

- Hunter > Savage

- Has Seasparrow

- You can buy new houses

- Hidden packages are better than letter scraps and all the other collectibles in gta v

- 80's vibe is awesome

- Decapitation

- 6 Wanted stars instead of 5

- More fun missions

- Weapons feel better and different in some ways

- Much more unlockable rewards (Unique cars for doing sunshine autos lists, Hidden package rewards, Fireproof reward)

yeah theres more safe houses but only two of those have interiors aside from the owned buisnesses. other than that they are just save points. I like that secret random apartment interior with the scarface shower easter egg. theres even a chainsaw there.

VC was, is, and always will be the most fun game in the series to me. It just has a certain feel and vibe that none of the other games has captured in quite the same way. Even though V is my second favorite, it doesn't come close to how much fun Vice City was the first time I played it, and that feeling comes back every time I return to it. The music is better, the missions are better, the story is better, and of course, being a huge Miami Vice fan helps too!

I think GTA V is a fantastic game (my only issue with it at all is that I would've liked a few more heists overall, especially ones that weren't for the government), but Vice City is my favorite city, and I do agree with those who say that this game really nailed it with the business acquisition feature (I think the stories game did a great job with the Empire Building as well; although it may be repetitive to some, I get a real kick out of it).

-I can probably go on all night. xD

People often misunderstand "better", V obviously has improved combat and movement, graphics and all that, but as a total fun-factor - the whole point of video games, it's at a loss. They lost that thing, that magic. Sometimes the simple things in life are better, Vice City being the simple thing. I guess I just miss that generation of gaming. The old GTA's felt special, epic...

Don't forget typing CERTAINDEATH to make Tommy even more of a badass with a cigarette in his mouth.

-Weapons like the katana, chainsaw

-Amazing interiors

-Awesome activities

-Cars

-The soundtrack, holy sh*t !

-The HUD, classic GTA HUD !

And many more things

VC is better than V in terms of story (simple but good), protagonist (Tommy just sh*ts on the V protags), side characters (who are actually memorable and not obnoxious), atmosphere (the great 80's atmosphere) etc. for me.

VC has a better antagonists. V did add some good new features, but it missed out on basic ones such as interiors and vigilante.
