i chose the GTA III years.

i know. its a fun game that feels very intense. i feel like max payne 3 was going for that found footage style in the cutscenes but the gameplay was just a little bit too repetitive during certain parts.

 

max payne 3 just needed a better setting. shanghai is much cooler than favelas. thats just my opinion though, i would say max payne 3 is a solid 7 out of 10.

 

Kane & Lynch 2: is Dog sh*t. Easily one of the worst shooters I've played.

The first Kane & Lynch though, Dead Men? isn't bad at all.

I actually really liked dog days. It was rough but the setting and atmosphere was fantastic. The found footage look is also something that adds alot to the game. I was playing it the other day again and i still think its a great third person shooter. I cant help but think, what if max payne 3 took place in shanghai. It makes more sense, max payne is based on the films of john woo, and even though shanghai is not hong kong, its alot closer in style to a hong kong action movie. Kane and lynch just needed a better physics engine.

Don't forget the State of Emergency, Smuggler's Run series and ONI for 2000-2007!!

 

2008 - 2012 was awesome but for childhood memories, 2000-2007. The titles were also more edgy then i:e Manhunt series and 3D GTA games had decapitations.

 

I miss Midnight Club. Best racing games in my opinion. Doesn't look like we'll have another one :(

No. You completely misunderstood my entire post. Don't bother responding to me if you lack the reading comprehension to understand what I'm saying and get angry.

Nah, i completly understand what you said, R* didn't got neutered by the hot cofee controversy, otherwise they wouldn't had played with Bully's controversy, R* didn't turned into a crowd pleaser, otherwise they wouldn't had taken gta in another direction (one they ultimately dropped because of a very vocal portion of the fanbase) you can even make a case of SA being more a crowd pleaser while IV is more artsy and pretentious.

Don't do like Osho and blame everyone's "reading" comprehension, you are the one who presents the weak points.

You can't just say you understand what I'm saying and then prove that you don't with the rest of your words lol. That's not how it works. You're going off on some rant against GTA4 when I'm not even a fan of that game. All of your points fail terribly. But Please try harder to sound smarter than you are, it amuses me.

 

@CheatzNtrickz too true my man! It seems the "magic" has been lost. Oh well. They had a good run.

I have to go with 2001-07. Bully, San Andreas, and Vice City are just amazing games. Liberty City Stories was also pretty good, and I hear Vice City Stories was good even though I never had a chance to play it. GTA 3 still feels classic. It feels more noir than LA Noire at times. The main thing against GTA 3, understandably, is the lack of vehicles, especially motorcycles. That's why I prefer LC Stories.

 

2008-12 is close. Red Dead Redemption shines above them all, but LA Noire is a great game that mixes detective stuff I used to do on Police Quest with open world action and a realistic map of LA. GTA IV was pretty good, but it needed some more open areas and the ability to fly planes without mods.

 

2013 onward makes me worry about Rockstar's future in game franchises. Sure GTA V had a nice map, but the missions left a lot to be desired compared to San Andreas' vast assortment of missions (it's not just about count, but locations and types of activities involved.) I really felt cheated when I found out many goodies were reserved for GTA V Online, where I have to deal with kids cheating and killing me out of no where. I would get the PC version but I don't think my machine can handle it. It barely runs Fallout 4 on low settings.

2001-2008, strict. 2001-2010, not strict. 2010 counts TBoGT and CW included. But 2001-2008 are where the real gems of the Series are found.

 

Granted, if Rockstar quit after VCS (2006-7), I wouldn't of cared less. So maybe it's best for me to just say 2001-2007 and say 3D > HD.

I find it unfair that GTA V is seperated from MP3, RDR and all the other HD era games, GTA V is part of that era.

I'd say 2001-2007, even though it's really close, I'd go with that for the larger volume of great games that they made in that period.

I guess because everyone feels like GTA V is a new direction for R*, with the focus generally being more to the online than the single player.

That's not really a good enough reason at all to separate GTA V from the rest of the HD era games, GTA V was initially released on the PS3 and X360 so it counts as being part of the PS3/X360 HD era.

Yeah, I guess they just want to bully the fat kid and pick on GTA V some more as well, lol. Not that it matters for me, since I'd be voting for the 2001-2007 era either way :p

Not necessarily. Keep in mind GTA V is the only thing we've seen. Another Red Dead, Bully 2 perhaps and AGENT along with Max Payne 4 and this period would rap up nicely not to mention that GTA VI will probably have an announcement.

Nah, I really wish I had put MP3 in with V. The reason I put V and Online in their own place is because I felt it did take their games in a new direction with a heavy focus on Online and just the difference in tone and direction. I agree though, it probably would have been a better idea to put V in with the RDR and the others and put Online in its own or just say f*ck it and put them all together but oh well, what's done is done.

I think Agent is long dead. And the other potential sequels are barely even rumours, just fans specualting.

Not really, that's a matter of opinion, a lot of people would disagree with you on that, so doesn't really warrant the game being separated from the rest.

Everyone knows I'm the furthest thing from a GTA V fan but that's not really a reason for it to not be considered part of the HD-Era, bro. just because The Godfather III disappointed a lot of the fans of The Godfather series, doesn't mean it's not part of The Godfather trilogy.

Gta Vice City was the most immersive of the whole gta franchise. Although the story was a complete rip off from Scarface, I enjoyed the Miami Vice atmosphere from the 80's a lot.

 

Max Payne was ok. I realise there are a lot of MP fanboys in this threat, I just do not like shooters on rails. My bad.

 

Instead RDR was great. What was not great was the online part.

I've enjoyed all the eras, but would probably say I enjoyed Vice City and San Andreas the most with GTA IV close behind.

 

LA Noire and RDR were both one and done games for me. I enjoyed RDR but the ending killed it for me. LA Noire felt more like work than anything.
