I agree, but I would put Vice City and Ballad of Gay Tony (yes the dlc was that good) before San Andreas.
Khajiit86  +   448d ago
Just switch vice city with 4. For me the DLC and multiplayer in 4 put it slightly behind San Andreas.
JunioRS101  +   448d ago
obviously!

1. GTA Vice City (best GTA setting in my opinion)
2. GTA 3 (First 3D GTA - set the stage for future GTA games)
3. GTA 2 (My first GTA - Really fun and unique game.)
4. GTA 4 (Haven't played it a lot. Got bored quickly)

4 sucked only reason i wouldnt put it last is cause of gay tony
TrollCraftTales  +   448d ago
The only reason I really liked 4 is because of the DLC and the awesome ragdoll physics.. I could play it for hours just hurling myself off of random things :P
Kleptic  +   447d ago
I bought GTAIV on release day...I didn't finish the campaign literally until 2 weeks ago...bought the dlc package and already finished LaD, which was pretty good...and am nearly done with gay tony...

gay tony was good enough to be its own game imo...GTAIV's biggest problem was complete crap mission structures with all kinds of layered/scripted gimmicky shat...'chase this car'...didn't matter what car you had, and didn't matter how many rounds you pumped into who you were chasing...it would stay ahead of you until the game deemed it acceptable...lost and damned fixed most of that, and gay tony more or less removed it...

and gtaIV SUCKED with weapons...if it had the stryker from lost and damned, or the frag round equipped 12 gauge from gay tony...it would've at least been fun...but other than mindlessly running around, which was fun for 30 minutes in gtaiv...its still one of the most overrated games i've played...

you do know san andreas was based in space... have you even played the game bai??? jk, lol
darkride66  +   448d ago
I'm in the same boat. I know many loved San Andreas but I just couldn't stand it. It wasn't the subject matter for me, it was just boring compared to the others. Lame characters, no story, irritating missions..just a painful slog all around that wasn't fun to play. Ugh. I tried multiple times to get into this game and just never could.

For me:
1: GTA4, hands down. Once you learn to ignore your phone, this game was a masterpiece. One of the best, adult video games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. Great plot, fun gameplay and characters that felt right out of the best episodes of The Wire/Sopranos.
2: Vice City (I'm an 80's kid)
3: GTA3
4: GTA 1&2
5: San Andreas. That's right. I had more fun with the 2d GTA games then I did with San Andreas. Those "defend your turf" missions where everyone just runs around like idiots were painful, and if I don't care enough about the game's plot or protagonists to want to get through the horrible missions, what's the point. Again, I know I'm in the minority here. Everyone seems to love the game but I've just never understood. Perfect Dark was another of those games that everyone went nuts about and I'd try, I honestly would, to get into these games but ultimately just couldn't force myself to like them. I'm sure everyone has a game that they tried again and again to like because everyone loved them but just couldn't do it. GTA4 really ended up being a love it or hate it type experience for a lot of people.

Looking forward to 5.

Same for me, SA wasn't my cup of tea. I really wasn't into the rap stuff so it pretty much turned me away on multiple occasions.

I loved Gta3,VC, the PSP games and GTA IV.
Sketchy_Galore  +   448d ago
San Andreas was the only game in the main series that I hadn't played until I bought it recently on PSN and I have to say I haven't really been able to get into it. I don't even really know why. Maybe nostalgia is colouring my opinion of the older games but I've replayed them recently and they hold up well. I am not even out of the ghetto in San Adreas yet and I'm sure it will get better once I am but to be honest it's already feeling like a bit of a slog.

I think gtav easily has the potential to be #1. Either way gta has evolved tremendously. I remember playing birds eye view gta on ps1, that seems like forever ago!

Exact same list.
stage88  +   448d ago
Too hard. My mind changes a lot.

But in last place is always GTA IV
dbjj12088  +   448d ago
It's easier to hate after playing Red Dead for sure.
ado908  +   448d ago
After playing Red Dead? Then you might as well hate every other GTA game, truth of the matter is GTA IV is the worst one in the series.
HeavenlySnipes  +   448d ago
I wouldn't say Red Dead was much better than GTAIV (personally had more fun playing GTAIV but I could see why people would prefer RDR)
stage88  +   448d ago
Just for the record I actually thought RDR was really boring as well.
From the looks of it R* seem to have put the fun factor in GTA V so I'm really anticipating it.
nick309  +   448d ago

I'm oldschool, so I rank GTA 2 at the top and the original at number 2. After that, I don't really care, because I never really got into them after they went 3D/open world.

The age of many of you shows, since a lot of you aren't even ranking the original games.
