I've just started a new playthrough for both GTA Vice City and San Andreas, noting that I haven't finished Vice City's storyline not even once before, and I can honestly say that I'm enjoying it far more than San Andreas (which is my favorite title in the 3D era).

 

The atmosphere is indescribable, the soundtrack is fantastic (talking about soundtrack, the gun sounds are far better as well), and Tommy feels like a more charismatic protagonist than CJ when it comes to me. Also, not sure if this can be considered objectively true, but the overall world looks somewhat better than San Andreas' for some reason, as well as the NPCs, especially the storyline characters. The models aren't exactly as polished or qualified, but the textures look better in some way. Not to mention that the graphics are more captivating, although I still don't rate games for how advanced their graphics are or how good they look.

 

Now I don't want to turn this into a "Things GTA Vice City did better than GTA San Andreas" thread 😜, but anyway, I still can't say that I overall prefer it to San Andreas, but I'll have a clearer vision after I finish it.

I haven't finished Vice City in like 15 years, but I still play it from time to time when I want to take a break from GTA IV. It's still the gem of the 3D era IMO.

 

With regards to graphics I've always felt Vice City looked great even though the 3D era wasn't known for great graphics. I think it's the aesthetic that does it for me. I like the way GTA III looks for a similar reason.

I agree VC is visually more appealing as well. I tried to take a similar picture of both games that might show some differences:

Vice City looks more vibrant and the textures indeed are better in some places. I prefer the vehicle shine effect in VC and there are newspapers and leaves flying around.

VC is overall my 3rd favorite GTA. To me personally SA is still just slightly ahead of VC due to a larger map and mission count (despite CJ's shortcomings as a protagonist, gun sounds and copy-paste interiors), but GTA IV without a doubt is the best.

Its funny. When I was younger I was always III>VC and then later SA>VC. Mainly because I was not a fan of VC's map.

 

When I look back - VC had an incredible atmosphere. The soundtrack has never been topped. The empire/asset building has never been topped. The introduction of motorbikes, helicopters and the use of boats. The malls. The enterable airport terminal. The summer atmosphere. 

 

To think they made this in one year. Wow. What an amazing game.
