San Andreas will have to be my favorite game in the series. Having Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas including many towns and the Nevada and Arizona desert was and still is a blast to explore. A lot of people thought the length of traveling was bad but I don't understand why-if Rockstar released a game with the entire US, they'd shed tears of joy.

I also loved the new features like RPG elements of increasing your driving, weapon and sex appeal stats. Having BMX and mountain bikes were awesome and jets to fly made you feel like you were actually using to it's fullest. Not to forget, jumping out of a plane about to release a parachute will always be a memorable moment in GTA.

Also, what can I say-the Boyz N the Hood storyline approach was a good choice for the series. Crimainals are criminals whether you're wearing a wife beater, Hawaiian shirt, leather jacket or suits and Rockstar made all the themes gold.

So, While we wait for Grand Theft Auto V and San Andreas Stories, post your favorites.

My Ranking of the Games I've Played-

1. San Andreas
2. IV
3. Chinatown Wars
4. Vice City
5. III

Honorable Mentions-

Liberty City Stories, II, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto.

Yep. Though I hope to see a San Andreas Stories released, a look at the state modern in modern times would be so awesome.

Oh, yeah. What I loved about San Andreas is that it had a lot of cool Easter eggs and even started some rumors about Bigfoot in a cave. Did you find the buried body bags in the desert?

Vice City. Played some of San Andreas and couldn't get into it. Seemed just more of the same. And I do mean more. But ya, Vice City really captured the 80s, and that was fun. Plus, bikes in the 3D gameplay! Oh, and the songs. Heh. Such cornball songs for the most part. Made it fun. The parallels to Scarface were neat.

San Andreas. GTA IV is decent, but it's really just a revamp of GTA III (which I was blown away by when I played it), so I'm not as impressed with it. Vice City was really fun just because it was 1980s Miami, but I never beat that one. I thought it was pretty hard.

Those early GTA games are awful. Haven't played any of the stories or episodes.

Where can the series go from here? They've done New York, Miami, L.A./San Fran/Las Vegas. What next? Go international with it? There's really nothing left in the U.S. If they did a Chicago or Detroit or something it would still end up looking like Liberty City. Maybe an expanded version of their takes on San Francisco or Las Vegas? Maybe a trip to San Andreas or Vice City for modern times, but then you'd run into the "been there, done there" problem I have with GTA IV.

Well, here's your hint. think they'll be going somewhere where seagulls will be around a lot. I was thinking Paris but Miami Beach aka Vice City may be it...I was hoping Tokyo, Japan but that may be in the future.


News-


What we heard: When Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City went on sale on October 29, the game was already at the center of a hype storm. However, the game soon was sucked into a speculation maelstrom, courtesy of a very small--and very fake--advertisement on one of the last pages of its manual.

The ad in question was for a nonexistent film, Liberty City, It's Over, a parody of the anthology New York, I Love You. In its center, the ad shows the cover art from Grand Theft Auto IV inside a torn-asunder heart--a sign some are taking to mean that the Ballad of Gay Tony is the last title of this GTA generation set in Liberty City. Then, below the title, are the words "Next Stop" above a rip in the poster--which shows another image underneath, as though the Liberty City, It's Over poster had been pasted over it.



The image inside that rip has become the subject of fierce debate. Is it a blue-gray and yellow hillside from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas? Or does it bear the pastel color palette of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City? Now, Modmywhat.com user "Lysergio" claims to have solved the mystery by producing a screen of a fake poster from Vice City. Modmywhat.com moderator "Gunner" went one step further, overlaying the two posters in an animated .gif to show an exact match when the parody poster is mirrored.





True to the hard-M-for-Mature ratings of the series, the suggestive poster uses a volcano surrounded by two tree-covered hills to advertise an erectile dysfunction drug. It was apparently on the wall of a porno shop in the game, or possibly the adult movie studio InterGlobal Films. The porn studio was at the center of several Vice City missions, which saw mobster protagonist Tommy Vercetti (voiced by actor Ray Liotta) assist erotic filmmaker Steve Scott (Dennis Hopper) and adult-film actress Candy Suxxx (real-life porn star Jenna Jameson). It is unclear if any of those characters would return, were Vice City to be remade using the Grand Theft Auto IV engine.

The official story: Rockstar reps had not responded to requests for comment as of press time.

Bogus or not bogus?: Though the existence of the Vice City poster could not be confirmed firsthand as of press time, the comparisons are awfully compelling--or an elaborate hoax. However, analysts are already predicting only a two-year gap between 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV and a full-fledged sequel--twice that between 2001's Grand Theft Auto III and 2002's Vice City. With the alleged teaser/fake film ad mentioning the month of March, news of the next GTA could be less than five months away.

I wouldn't mind a return to Vice City. IV was just too dark and dreary. I'm done playing GTA in the big city.

Agreed! I've like VI to be San Andreas 2 and 7 to be Tokyo, Japan! Oh, God, please let it be Tokyo, Japan!
