Most nostalgic thing in GTA Vicecity

Recommended Posts

i'm nostalgic about pretty much everything in Vice City, but the biggest ones are the cars and the music on the radio, especially "The Pointer Sisters - Automatic"

That music which plays in North Point Mall, something very nostalgic about it for me, probably from all those katana-massacres there and driving the Infernus over everyone there.

Almost everything, what kill me is how the story was actually a story about crime and wise guys. Like a true crime/drama movie.

The colors, the setting, the vehicles handling, the characters, the mansion, the city itself, the soundtrack... even though it has been rushed in 9 months and the game is full of glitches and bugs and obviously lacks polishing, it remains my favorite GTA. Every time I'm playing III or SA, or even V, I miss or regret something in VC.

The posh female pedestrian who says " Are you the Doctor?" " I tried to pull my pants off over my head" " I just came back from the doctor im clean"

" Im so friggin lost its not even funny"

 

The game has some of the best pedestrian scripting of the series, i can just stand on a street sometimes and listen to the pedestrians

 

The old black pimp " I cant see you but i sure can smell you"

 

and of course Tommy's " blame my mother i do !"

I dont agree VicecIty was rushed it was being worked on at the same time as GTA3, it is a lot more polished than GTA3 and it shows,

The entire f*ckin' game

For example this

 

 

It makes me nostalgic & kind of depressed, even that sunset, and the night in VC is nostalgic too, and the knowledge that the game files are 14 years old, 14 year old polygons, 14 year old mocap..

I can't explain the feeling I've got

 

Same with this, and I can't believe there's a Scarface game, and literally that much attention is put to it, I played the entire game only by storyline and I thought ''I think the developers wouldn't put much effort into this game'' but they did! I'm still figuring sh*t out, and strategies, hehe..

 

Also, I thought by 2017 nobody talks about this movie, or it doesn't have such a big fanbase, but I see edits on the scarface wikipedia like 9 hours ago, and I see forums talk about it including this one, and still videos about the game, some guy compared it to Mafia III..

And you know what I think the year 2006 is? It's the year when many movie games were made, even The Godfather was made then, and it made more good games.

And kind of sad they can't do original Vice City again, probably many voice actors died, or aged.

It was my first Grand Theft Auto game, so I'll say that it was the gameplay. Stealing any car you want, making missions, listen to 80's songs, killing people with cheat codes.

Finishing the hotring as n°1. Even if the circuit is extremely basic, I'm never protected from a last minute unpredicted problem making me miss the best position. Even if I finish n°1 very oftenly the race is always full of suspense and tension. When I reached my objective I always feel proud and relieved.

Hearing the weather hurricane report during the driving tutorial then the radio immediately swicjes to Michael Jackson's Billie Jean

 

Neon lighting on buildings and pastel paints

 

Leisure suits and fast cars such as the infurnus

 

Rampages

You could say pretty much everything about this game but 5 things i find myself having nostalgic feelings:

 

1) That Opening Intro is probably the best in the entire GTA Series:

 

 

2) The Amazing Radio Stations, each radio stations in this game is enjoyable to listen to.

 

3) Trails from the PS2 version, something that made Vice City feels like Vice City IMO. I'm not sure why they removed it from the PC version but i'm glad it's possible to restore it.

 

4) Going to that North Point Mall only to see criminals being chased by the police and Gangs shooting each others.

 

5) The entire 80's settings as a whole really, Ranging from Cars to the Night Clubs and so on.

You know, Kendl? I think this might be the beginning of a beatiful bussiness relationship.

 

After all you're a conniving, backstabbing two bit thief, and I'm a convicted psychotic killer and drug dealer HAHA.

 

I know, ain't it just beatiful?

 

This line, with that background music playing it's a memory I won't be able to get out of my head anywhere in the future.

Playing the vigilante sub-mission with the tank and hitting the criminals to make them explode or simply running after them knowing I'll finally catch them by speed.

 

GTA Vice City is the only episode I have where playing the vigilante sub-mission is funny with a tank.

Billie Jean playing while driving a white Admiral at night. Then you hear a news report about the state department warning about a hurricane headed for Vice City.

 

If that's not nostalgic I dunno what is.

 

Something that also stuck with me was getting three stars, going to the dirt track in Vice Point and collecting a VCPD Cheetah that would usually spawn.

Standing in the road till one of the trucks comes up with the guys you see standing by the coach, if you punch the truck they either scream like girls and run or you get "nut job" and runs off.

The fat guy in shorts who farts, the red bikini clad girl on skates who will chae you if you punch her, great sound effects for the skates too

The sunshine autos races. Even if they're all easy to win I compete in one everytime I play, it's just too bad they didn't put more races given the excellent handling Vice City offers.
