There's far more to GTA's heritage than the same three games every time.
The stories games were really fun, better than GTA 3.
Vice City Stories is actually my favourite GTA by far. Just a great story and the best soundtrack of all the games. Especially VCPR radio station, some of those shows were absolute comedy genius.
Yeah the humour was at least up there with VC even in the cutscenes, and as you said great music also.
Remaster Gta IV with 4k resolution and 60fps
Man I'd love that game updated in today's rate engine. Even on PC to this day the frame rate is tied with some gameplay mechanics press space bar to climb onto a truck or back into the chopper during the final chase is impossible because the game running above 30 fps ties the speed you need to press space in with the frame rate so 60 to some 230ps capable monitors mean you need to be the flash to complete it and that bug persists to this day even after rockstar re released the complete edition on PC last year.
Yeah. It's sad just how crap that port was. The fact they got away with that and never fixed it is ridiculous. It's borderline unplayable on many rigs.
It's a huge disappointment that in 2021 still the only legal way to play VCS is via PSP, PS2 disc or PSV / PS3 backwards compatibility. Despite re released of the mainline games GTA 3 vc Sa on android and iOS even LCS got an iOS port we can't play VCS anywhere on a modern system.
Bioware is a shell of its former self. Blizzard is imploding. Rockstar turned into one of the biggest shill companies in gaming and barely ever release games. This is why I'm tuning more and more to indies and AA studios almost entirely when it comes to what I'm playing. Speaking of, I've been pretty hooked on a little known Roguelike action platformer called Fury Unleased. Games addicting, and can typically be had for dirt cheap, apparently. Also has online co-ol It even has a workshop where people contributed a lot of awesome/hilarious faces you can use for your character.
Funny you say that most of these giant companies were really just Indies that stumbled onto a great idea. Rockstar took gta3 to E3 and almost no one cared it didn't get them any attention until it actually released. So really any indie studio can be the next big thing but it's hard for huge studios to keep momentum over time think how Ubisoft and EA because their investors want sequels of proven IP's which stiffles innovation.
Rockstar went to E3? I thought they was beneath them.
I remember when GTA 3(D) was announced, I was hyped. I had the first 2 on PS1 and when I heard there was going to be a 3D edition, I was surprised. Stl hoping for a 3D Hotline Miami!!
Seeing as new titles are taking 5 years+ to push out at this stage...to be honest, R*'s games are so good I'd happily see most of their catalogue get remasters. This could be a nice gauge to prove to them that we still want a new Midnight Club, Bully etc. Also, I would love to play GTA IV again. I f always adored it but I find that people appreciate it a lot more nowadays.
Dreaming of a new Midnight Club for current and new gen
They could remaster Midnight Club 3 and Los Angeles and I would be satisfied.
How about stop overlooking your other series
Chinatown Wars and VCS are two of my favorite GTAs period.
They need to remaster GTA IV but I bet that won’t happen. It’s considered the least favorite among the trilogy and V. Not for me though. It’s my favorite!
Same I still replay it every so often because that story was easily the franchises peak and a huge achievement for gaming in general I remember being on this site in 2008 and there was so many articles about games being considered art purely because of GTA IV
Would love to get a polished console port of Chinatown Wars. Surprisingly my favorite handheld GTA and I personally think it’s wanted system is the best in the series. Plus the drugs mini game. Was epic on DS with the touch controls too.
