Kinda an ever so slight spin off of the violence thread, I figured I'd find out what y'all thought about GTA.
Did you prefer to play the classic, top down GTA's (GTA/GTALondon, GTA2)
or do you like the fancy 3D ones (GTA3 onwards?)
Personally Hands down favourite are the original ones, they may not have the facny graphics or realism of the newer ones, but in terms of sheer fun..
Eg in GTA going for the GOURANGA was always cool, or in the second one going for the Elvis's for a 'ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING' etc etc, just endless fun. The missions always seemed a lot more 'pick up and play', ie there didnt seem to be as much of a story line forcing you in one particular (albeit open) way as with the newer ones. they just seem to be more open, I get more of a feeling of beign able to do whatever you like.
I think that they were more violent in their own way too, its just that the more cartoonish graphics kind of hid it from you Although it was funny to drive down the pavement and jsut see a load of red spodges behind you hehe
Both of them are free to download now too, so if you have been unfortunate enough to not play them before the 3D versions came out, go grab them and see what you think
