What each previous GTA game does better than its successor


Recommended Posts

This is a copy-paste from a Reddit post I made before, so please forgive me if the overall highlight is different.

 

In other words, what aspects GTA III does better than Vice City, Vice City does better than San Andreas, and so on. I'll be skipping games before III, the Stories, and the handheld exclusives here.

 

What III does better than Vice City:

After playing through both I find that Vice City has a few more bugs and glitches than III (still love Vice City though).

 

What Vice City does better than San Andreas:

I haven't played through San Andreas yet, but nothing can beat the music and aesthetics of VC.

 

What San Andreas does better than IV:

Haven't played either one, but I heard that San Andreas has more content.

 

What IV does better than V:

This is obvious as you see many Youtube videos claiming why IV is better than V. Most of these are physics-based, but honestly the physics I'm not bothered with. However, I really think that the player's combat in V is too op; just one punch knocks out most civilians. IV I heard does better in this aspect.

 

 

So what are your thoughts? What are some other things each previous GTA game does better than its successor you can think of?

What III does better than Vice City:

 

-You can severe the arms and legs,

-the taxi sub-mission pays largely better for shorter drives and with a bigger choice of itineraries allowing the speed bonus

-you don't have to run after stupid phucking dumbass people on fire who go in 1 side of an airport then run to the other end when you're about to extinguish the fire and repeat the sequence until you get so phucking tired of that sh*tty crappy rubbish garbage AI management you lost any pleasure of playing the sub-mission and think about cancelling it

 

 

What Vice City does better than San Andreas:

 

-the cars have a much better handling

-you can choose your car before playing a race

-you receive a reward everytime you win a race

-the soundtrack is much better

-the helicopters are more agreable to drive

-you don't have to wait close to the $ symbol so a company generates money at a decent speed

-your charred enemies really looked charred and can't be resurrected

I prefer the weightier feel of cars of SA over VC though.

I'll leave the story out since it's subjective.

How III > VC:

-Better city layout
-Better gore
-Gangs having better variety of weapons
-Headshot Rampages
-Subjective but better atmosphere IMO.

How VC > SA:

-Seamless interiors
-Choosing own cars for races
-Robbing stores
-Better weapon sounds
-Better death animations
-Better draw distance
-Better pedestrian collision physics
-Rampages > gang wars IMO.

How SA > IV:

-Car customization (choosing your color at least)
-Less exaggerated body roll in cars
-More consistent drifting with cars
-Shootouts can more spontaneously occur between rival gangs
-More secure car garages
One could mention SA's more diverse map and more variety of content, but another could then argue that quality > quantity in IV.

How IV > V:

-Less arcade-ish driving physics (subjective but still)
-Better car collision/deformation/ragdoll physics
-Better hand-to-hand and melee combat (no one hit knockouts)
-More bullet spread with weapons
-Better explosion splash damage (able to survive from explosions)
-Better parkour and ability to crouch
-Better pedestrian/police AI and wanted system
-More open interiors and you can run/pull out weapons in them
-Can leave the engine running when exiting cars
-Vigilante missions
-You will not instantly die from car crashes/if not landing them on wheels.

I thought that III's map was rather huge compared to Vice City for some reason. Must be that there were three islands compared to two.

I think LC was actually bigger. Much more city at least.

 

Also driving through Vice City is a bitch. I'm realizing how awful the road layout is. Much prefer driving in GTA 3.
