grand theft auto 3, classic or dud?

absolute fucking classic.

chris, Sunday, 16 June 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I'd like to hear arguments for 'dud', cos they're going to have a tough time, GTA3 is just too good.

Dud - arguments soon enough. Mountebank.

Gamers hate the phrase "playstation generation" but the disdain that it imparts is perfectly measured and calculated. There is no doubt a "playstation generation" - cue: Ronan "blah blah" :)

a stoner friend of mine plays it incessantly. his fantasy: in the future, they will be able to render with perfect accuracy the muscle, tissue, and bone structure of all characters. then the killing will be real.

so dud.

Who ever made the computer version deserves extreme amounts of pain for pushing a piece of crap. There is no friggen reason you need 256+ Megs of memory for that game and it still doesnt zoom on a 500+Meg P4. piece of shit.
But I love the game, I heart Chatterbox and I cant finish that damm mexican race mission.

I was just listening to the soundtrack to the original GTA3. Head radio is so hilarious:

"This is Head Radio. A Love Media station. Just one of 900 radio stations, 300 TV stations, four networks, three satellites, ten senators. (Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!) Head Radio!"

I just bought this >$19 at Dick Smith, and I reckon it pisses all over Vice City. If only they did it with all the little touches that were in the slightly improved VC engine.

I just bought this last night, and spent a few hours playing on it. So far, I must admit I don't like it as much as "Vice City" for the following reasons:

1/Liberty City is an absolute fucking shithole, and it's depressing driving around it, especially when it gets foggy

2/no motorbikes (so far)

3/the radio stations aren't as good.

..but it was still a lot of fun, sort of. I like the overhead railway system.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Tuesday, 5 April 2005 11:29 (sixteen years ago) link

Part of this is that I NEVER WANTED VICE CITY TO END!!! More islands to explore, more missions, more vcpr and kchat.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Tuesday, 5 April 2005 11:30 (sixteen years ago) link

You won't get any motorbikes in Three. I played San Andreas for the first time this weekend and got annoyed by two things:

- can't use the arrows to steer a car
- seems to take longer to load each game/section of dialogue than I remember Three doing, so more waiting around.

Otherwise, it is classic enough to make me consider buying my own PS2, which means it's pretty darn classic.

Madchen (Madchen), Tuesday, 5 April 2005 11:43 (sixteen years ago) link

I had a college roommate in 1993 who talked incessantly about how "virtual reality" would take over and you would be able to fuck Pam Anderson or Cindy Crawford inside a video game. Estimated time for this? The year 2000.

I like GTA3 all right. If there's one thing I don't like is not being able to climb shit (I got San Andreas first.) Also, the echoey effects of the bystanders' voices creep me out a little. And I had to turn off those tracer effects.

A vers. of the 3D game set in '60's London could be pretty good fun, actually, but a version set in Ancient Rome would be the best.

I would love it if you could import a Simcity city into GTA, and drive around it with rendering as nice as it is in San Andreas. That would rock.

Trayce (trayce), Tuesday, 5 April 2005 22:18 (sixteen years ago) link

OK, I'm getting into this a bit more. I just took the big mafia guy's hot wife?/daughter? to the warehouse rave and got her back home ok after the LCPD busted it, also I blew up the triad's fish factory. I'm up to the bit where you have to blow the ship up, man, that's difficult. The street race is even harder, even after I figuerd out how to get the banshee from the garage around the front of eightball's place.

Like "Vice City", the thing that most impresses me about it is the sense of it being a real place. It's kind of a believable location. I still don't like it as much as "Vice City" though, mostly because there's a thread of twisted humour running through "Vice City" that seems absent, or at least not very well developed in "GTA3". I think it needs the humour because the subject matter is a bit of a mnoral black hole, to be honest. Plus the music in "Vice City" was much, much better. The music in "GTA3" is OK, I guess, though I sringe everytime I pick up a car that's tuned to MSX FM. That's some fucking unlistenable shit right there.

"Fade Away" on Head radio I think it was, great tune.

The third island has some great missions, like the collecting of the fallen gold bars in the road. the more you pick up the heavier the car gets and harder to drive.

For those of you not paying attention, they finally started posting information and a trailer for GTA IV.

It's out in Mid-October for PS3 and 360, it's set in a Liberty City modeled explicitly after NYC, and the main character is (presumably) an Eastern European/Russian immigrant who sounds not unlike Jean Reno. The trailer uses Philip Glass and several "Koyanisquaatsi"-like shots.

Join our ILG thread here

Take Two(the publisher) & Rockstar have already filed a lawsuit against Jack Thompson(the loudmouth and possibly disbarred miami lawyer who's all het up against the vid games) to stop him from filing more lawsuits about the game.

And NYC officials are already complaining about the use of their city as the basis for the game setting.

two weeks pass...

In the late-game yakuza mission “s.a.m.,” you are tasked to use a rocket launcher to shoot down a plane as it lands at Francis International airport. You must travel by yacht to the checkpoint, a buoy off the end of the runway.

When you arrive, you have about a minute to decide to either stand on the back of the boat and wait for the plane’s approach or to consider the possibility of another vantage point. A quick cruise around the vicinity leads to the discovery of a lone, belligerent Colombian gunman (“it’s no thing to kill you”)— as well as a gently sloped boat ramp, which conveniently leads up to the runway. With some speed you can gun the boat up the incline and get off onto the siding without fear of falling in the water.

At the top of the ramp there’s a Cartel Cruiser with 3 soldiers on guard, shamelessly brandishing their AK-47s. Blasting the gunmen with the rocket launcher from a distance seems like a safe bet. But that vehicle could come in handy, perhaps? More elegant is to snipe the three, then proceed gingerly up to the landing strip.

You’ll now have ample time to equip the rocket launcher and wait for the approach. The plane is quick; even with the advantage of a longer lead time down the runway, you’ll need to stay sharp to tag it. When it explodes, eight packages of drugs will fall to the ground, which you will need to collect with haste, as your wanted level spikes to four stars, drawing a police helicopter to hover overhead and take shots at you. Hope you brought your body armor.

Packages acquired, you’ll want the safety of that vehicle to help you get to your destination, the construction site in Staunton Island where the yakuza are hanging out.

The Cruiser is a slow car with a high center of gravity — make the best of it as you head the only way possible — down the runway. Don’t mind the other two gangs of Columbians that are parked nearby, or the random keystone kops that are now hunting you as you speed towards the exit under the wings of 747s.

As you emerge onto the street, you have a choice to take the bridge or the tunnel, both of which will bring you back to Staunton. The tunnel might sound attractive, as it provides natural defense against the helicopter. However, it’s tight; the reckless fuzz won’t hesitate to force you into the walls and traffic barriers. With limited room to maneuver, the environment is ideal for pile-ups and cars catching fire. So, instead, the bridge.

Or — to a pay-and-spray. There’s one just up the way in Shoreside Vale, past a couple of hastily placed police van roadblocks. Once you’ve got your new engine and paint job, “the cops won’t recognize you,” and you can proceed safely back to Azusa.

Of all the shit that's wrong with these things, not putting actual mid-mission checkpoints into the stupidly demanding/glitchy 20 year old games is the thing that really tanks it as a project for me

Driving around Vice City doing the early missions (with the old music modded back in) has been quite fun tbh, though I keep getting bummed out at how old the game is and how old that makes me. 38yo man staring into the purple Florida sky as Crockett's Theme plays, just thinking bout things

I ran out of steam on GTA3 as soon as I got to one of the missions where you have to do a sequence of tedious stuff then loads of enemies spawn and someone rams you off the road and blows your vehicle up and you have to start again

One thing I've noticed is that with the new brand spanking new far-draw distance how small it makes the map feel particularly if flying a plane. Being able to see Mount Chilliad from my Grove Street home is weird. Would it have killed them to add some haze? It all looks a bit Fortnitey.

Same checkpoints!? lol hadn't realized this. Going to stick to PS2 emulation with savestates. I was a couple hours into my first time playing San Andreas when I heard about the new version and figured I'd wait..... nope.

If they want to fix this mess it sounds like they have to take the games they finished 20 years ago and start doing a proper update now. This would've been embarrassing as a $20 curiosity, it's wild they are charging full price.

Lou Christie's Mosh Pit (Old Lunch), Thursday, 18 November 2021 19:02 (two weeks ago) link

Actually enjoyed a session on VC last night, even getting through Demolition Man with no probs. I think out of the three games this one visually benefits the most because of it's intense colour palette.

Tried the GTA3 version for the first time, just meh really. Still has frame rate issue unbelievably.

San Andreas is the most buggy from what I've seen, of course it's the bigger game with more scope for stuff to go wrong (a lot of polygon clipping in areas, ie car tyres clipping through roads) but I don't enjoy the enhanced cartoony experience for this one. There's also some annoying glitch when climbing over fences where your character gets a little stuck on the other side. On top of things I've already mentioned I'll stick to playing this on the ps2 thanks.

Chicks and Ducks and Geese better scurry (Ste), Friday, 19 November 2021 13:03 (one week ago) link

I did demolition man first time too this go round! Although the camera kept showing the floor above the chopper, completely obscuring it

I really wish I'd played all the way through GTA 3 properly when it came out when it still had that incredible novelty to it, it's too rudimentary to persevere with if you get stuck in an annoying mission in 2021

I'm not touching San Andreas, unless I get a sudden hankering to see a man with five joints in his arm ride a bike

Lou Christie's Mosh Pit (Old Lunch), Friday, 19 November 2021 14:28 (one week ago) link

That was my theory as well, they'll have done some kind of cost analysis which justifies it on the basis that the amount of copies they'll shift purely off the back of nostalgia & brand recognition will be enough to outweigh the inevitable backlash and negative reviews. Multiply sales across every current available platform and it's bound to make enough of a profit (especially at the ludicrous AAA pricepoint of 60 bucks) that the shareholders will be satisfied regardless of the lack of quality of the end product.

"Spaghetti" Thompson (Pheeel), Friday, 19 November 2021 15:06 (one week ago) link

Interested to see how this plays out as it's a real test of that kind of math. What's more confusing is, no one at all was waiting on this. Why would they rush it out the door? It doesn't make any sense. Yeah maybe something about more profit for the current quarter.

but now i'm at the point where my mind is playing trickseez, "did i already get that one?" "did the game save properly after finding those ones?" and trying to remember all the locations and falling for the trap of false locations where there never was a package. Fucked if I know where these last 3 are. will continue tomorrow...

Fixed an issue where the game would restart from the beginning when selecting to retry from the last checkpoint on the Mission High Stakes, Low Rider

I would have raged so hard...

This purportedly fixes it, though I think by auto-completing the mission at a point before the bug rather than actually letting you do it properly

They also have a mod that puts all the removed songs back in that works fine

Do the new versions let you play your own station by putting mp3s in a folder, like the original?

just curious.
