Which GTA had the Best/Worst weapon sounds?

Recommended Posts

El Penguin Bobo

(IMO)

 

Best: VC, GTA V, and GTA IV. They sound pretty awesome and realistic.

 

Worst: SA. They were pretty....basic. Only the Micro SMG, SMG, Sniper Rifle/Rifle, Desert Eagle sounded good. The rest, no.

Can't really say since I don't pay much attention to the gun sounds. No game has made me feel uncomfortable, so far, when it comes to gun sounds.

Same here. It's quite surprising to me that people pay so close attention to how the gun sounds that they're able to group it into best and worst.

Anyways, I'd say the best would be IV and I don't know about the worst though.

Best: GTA IV and VC I guess, I kinda like the AK's sound in GTA III as well.

Worst: GTA SA, doesn't bother me too much, though the machine gun of the Hunter and Sea Sparrow is awfully loud and the minigun sounds it's fired underwater.

Best:: GTA IV/EFLC, Vice City and GTA III. All weapons sound menacing.

 

Worst: San Andreas. Maybe if they spent more time on making the acoustics sound more authentic and less on making sure there's "variety" the guns wouldn't sound like... you know sh*tty second hand Hasbro cap guns you can find at a discount store? I would put GTA V here, but to be fair there are some guns that sound pretty good. Basically every pistol, uzi, shotgun etc in San Andreas sounds like barely any effort was put in to recording.

I feel like I should say something bad about GTA 4, but unfortunately they all sounds alike to me.

 

I can't tell the difference between the weapon sounds from GTA 3, GTA SA and GTA 5.

 

But then again I have no idea what the real guns sound like, apart from a tank.

At least they don't sound like toys like in some other titles. (you're still my favorite 3D era title, San Andreas)

Vice City's, Liberty City Stories' and Vice City Stories' were pretty cool too, and III's come close as well.

It's bewilders me why San Andreas' are so awful. The weapon sounds were spot on in GTA III and Vice City. Sounded meaty and ballsy.

 

Then San Andreas comes along and completely f*cks all that up.

 irl guns DO actually sound similar to each other

Most powerful: GTA 4/VC

Most realistic: GTA 5 (there are actual detail echos depending on the distance, the sound of a bullet hitting a body, wall, car, glass, water, and EVEN BODIES AND CARS UNDER WATER! They all sound pretty similar and for the most part match up with the proformance of the weapon but sound like silence versions of their gta 4 counterparts)

Worst in all areas: GTA SA

Toy guns are toys which imitate real guns, but are designed for children to play with. From hand-carved wooden replicas to factory-produced pop guns and cap guns, toy guns come in all sizes, prices and materials such as wood, metal, plastic or any combination thereof. Many newer toy guns are brightly colored and oddly shaped to prevent them from being mistaken for real firearms.

I consider GTA IV to be the best and GTA V to be the worst when it comes to gun sounds. But seriously, R* needs to take the time and budget to record the sounds of actual guns being fired. They have the resources for it, so if they could actually put in the same effort into doing this as it takes for them to record realistic car sounds that'd be great.

A little revision: GTA San Andreas' weapon sounds fit in the worst category IMO.

 

GTA V's weapons don't really sound that bad. The main issue is probably the fact that they don't sound loud enough. I still prefer the weapon sounds of GTA III, Vice City and IV to them, but GTA V's still sound pretty cool to some extent.

well san andreas’ weapon sounds aren’t that garbage they’re just a little different but what’s strange is why game studios changes gun sounds in each relase of a new game

Best: IV and VCS (it is actually improved version of VC & LCS).

Worst: SA - I never liked them. Even gun flash is worst.

 

Honorable mention: Rocket Launcher in III.

While I don't really have a best, I will have to say SA takes the cake for worst gun sounds, seeing as they're too loud and just kinda hurt your ears.

Excluding 2D era which had bad effetcs due to DMA's small budget;

Best: GTAV

Worst: GTASA - Whoever did these sound effects should be hit upside the head with a wet tuna fish. They are a crime against sound engineering and design.
