    GTA SA > GTA IV > GTA VC > GTA III

    My order. I really loved SA, loved the planes and jets, the parachute, the terrain, the size, the pimp my ride! . All quality.

    All great games though for their own reasons.

    What is most annoying is that cannot get out using America constantly as a back drop for all games.

    That said, I agree with lithos, on all his points.

    Except of course for the one that wasn't in America :p But yes it would be nice for them to do one of their modern games outside the USA. There's so many other amazing iconic cities to explore. But, something about the USA does just suit the series. It's that chasing the 'American dream' story they tell. And the country suits all the ridiculous parody they use because the whole world loves to take the piss out of the USA.

    I think Vice city was the best GTA as far as story and characters goes. Mostly because of the whole scarface miami in the 80's setting was so much more interesting than whiny russian immigrant Nico belic and his irritating cousin.

    That's so true, it's about cultural identification. Would you really understand parody of say German culture ? Maybe, but it doesn't resonate with as many people as does talking about Amercian culture and all it's pitfalls.

    Completely agree. I LOVED GTA3. And vice city was an awesome game. After that it went downhill IMO.

    Definitely looking forward to GTA5 though, and hoping it'll bring back the awesomeness that was GTA3 and vice city :)

    I couldn't agree with you more, however I loved San Andreas just as much as GTA3 and Vice City, been playing GTA3 on my mobile to fill in time while I'm out and about, been loving it :)

    Just noticed it's 10 years to the day that Vice City was released.

    Man, doesn't time fly when your running down hookers.













    And sometimes playing GTA games.

    To say I'm excited is a drastic understatement.
