San Andreas ofc. Not only is the map well done and larger than both games (Stories added) and have more possibilities for fun, SA is my first GTA game.

I don't like to compare them since I love every single GTA3 era game however San Andreas has the most diverse gameplay and the most fun.

Vice City Stories by a mile. Not only it featured the most refined mechanics from the 3D era, but also had great soundtrack (in some areas even better than VC one) and interesting story. It's definitely one of the most underappreciated GTA game (right next to the CTW) and one of the best in 3D era (right next to Vice City).

SA, LCS & VCS are built on the same engine almost. We can compase em.

Anyway, VCS is my favourite graphicwise & SA is my favourite storywise & missionwise.

LCS, it has great story, great music and an unforgettable characters. I also love that late 90's vibe in it with that mafia story. The second is San Andreas because it's freedom and activities, it's still the most fun GTA to play. I personally don't really like VCS, all this cartoonish 80's are not in my style.

I like all 3, but San Andreas is the best for me. The story, soundtrack, amount of content, and fun in this game never gets old.

I love all 3, but LCS has the better protagonist, VCS has the best gameplay, SA had the best vehicles.

I get that but I love every single one of them that I can't compare them since I love every game because it has different things which makes playing them all feel like one huge game since they are so similiar gameplay wise. Its just a "me" thing.

Liberty City Stories was okay, but I prefer VCS more. Although the PSP version is sh*t, but whatever.

 

And San Andreas, well, that's the best game available i.m.o.

Liberty City Stories was Rockstar Leeds's GTA III.

 

Vice City Stories was Leeds' GTA San Andreas. Great soundtrack, memorable and hilarious characters, smooth gameplay (not to say hard as f*ck) and a underrated PS2 masterpiece.

Though VCS was a master piece, it's controls were somehow troublesome (to me).

I played it on PS2 in New Year Eve. It was pretty cool on 48 inch TV. The blur effects made it more special. I think the accelartor button was X. That was annoying a bit. They could set R2 for it.

San Andreas > Vice City Stories > Liberty City Stories

 

- San Andreas: My favorite GTA game of the 3D Universe. It was my first GTA game to play. It contains a perfect mix of great story, cool characters and lots of features and details. Great music and atmosphere, everything was memorable.

- Vice City Stories is close. It's like GTA San Andreas and Vice City together combined in one game. I really liked its music, neon lights of buildings, empire building, and more. As well as the ability to (limited, but at least present) swim. Also: Vice City > Liberty City. It's a shame how come this great game doesn't have a 10th Anniversary port, especially when knowing it's the last and only game of the 3D Universe which doesn't have a remaster.

- Liberty City Stories: I didn't like it that much. It has some feel of emptiness. It didn't improve much compared to GTA LC, and Toni was a bit of empty. I can understand that he tries to keep close to Leone to save his position in the family and regains Salvatore's trust. But... I couldn't enjoy it as much as I did with VCS. Still a good game though. I liked the mafia theme along with the Leone suit on it. A good improvement of GTA LC, even though it didn't have the 'special' feel that GTA LC had.

 

Out of topic: It could've been A LOT better if gangs eventually act hostile towards Toni and Vic (Tommy in VC, too). That feature was only in GTA LC, dropped since the release date of VC. A little part was added to SA, which eventually makes the Ballas and Vagos more aggressive towards CJ, even though they are already aggressive since the beginning. Still nothing with the Da Nang Boys, Rifa, and Italian mobs.

VCS. Vic didn't piss me off like CJ and Toni was pretty bland. Vic's not great either, but the best of them I guess. VCS also introduced empire builing which is one of my favourite features.

Liberty City Stories for me. San Andreas is good and all, but Liberty City Stories has a special place in my heart for being GTA 3 but with all the fun features of Vice City.

San Andreas, considered to be a true masterpiece of the series coming from R*, so far. I miss this R* so much. You can tell they were having a blast while making SA. It's so good. LCS and VCS are also definitely fun games that one can enjoy for a change. I love all the 3D era games though, and it's not possible to stick with just one 3D era game, and that was the USP of the good old days when all GTA's back then had something to make the player pick up and play in having good GTA fun moments.

 

SA is special for me, since it's the only GTA that has the best story so far, followed by the gorgeous and massive open world full of diverse environments, missions, characters and content. It's hard to think about any game that has the ability to surpass SA. Though the entire catalog of 3D era GTA games is immensely fun, that's for sure. One will always have a great time in playing them w/o getting bored.

You can probably tell which I voted for. I liked that SA tied the other 3d games, III and VC, together. I guess it was a prequel in a way, but stood on it's own. LCS and VCS felt like an extension to their respective games and couldn't stand alone as strongly, but it doesn't mean they weren't great as well. I'm still waiting on San Andreas stories.
