Is this anyone's actual favorite GTA game?
Let me just say that this was my first GTA and I loved it. But since then, I beat Vice City and am now playing San Andreas. So my question is, after playing the sequels with better graphics, better gameplay mechanics, and (arguably) better storylines, is this still anyone's favorite GTA?

No, but it is my second favourite GTA, after GTA 2. I put GTA 3 and GTA 1 as my second favourites.

My first GTA would be GTA 1, I was 9 when it came out and I'll never forget playing it on release day when my brother brought it over. Love the game, but GTA 2, by a small nudge, was a little bit more fun for me. The first 3 GTA games are the best I rekon, and the London expansions to GTA 1 were also great, but they come third, fun but not as fun as the original.

I've played through all the GTA games including Advance, but nothing beats GTA 2 for me.

That's pretty cool that you like the top-down ones more than the 3D ones. I'll be honest, the only top-down I played was the first one, and while it was fun, I like the 3D ones better. But reallly, they're two different games. To each their own I guess.

Yeah the style is quite different, the top down games are more focused on arcade gameplay. And while that did exist in the GTA 3 era games, it was toned down a fair bit. Still love the later games though, so far I have enjoyed all the GTA games

I do wish Claude could have talked, but I guess they didn't really know how to do that.

Left, Down, Right, Up, L1, L2, Up, Left, Down, Right. As my first GTA game, I'll always prefer this, even if it isn't a superior game compared to Vice City or San Andreas.

i liked this one the best. if there was a continueing of this story. i would get it.

it's definitely my favorite. i do like mechanics of the newer games, such as the improved graphics, talking main character, etc. but this one will always hold the #1 spot for me

Mine is a toss up between Vice City and San Andreas. The reason I like SA was because there was a lot more to do in it. But I like Vice City because of its story.

It's rumored R* did this to make it feel like they we're talking to you! Also some say it's because Catalina shot him in the throat, i'd probably say both

This is definitely still my favourite. Maybe it's just because I played the crap out of it when it came out. San Andreas is a close second, but it can't top III.

The start of this game takes me back every time. The first island. Luigi and co's missions. I used to muck about for hours on the first island before I even bothered doing many missions. I think cos it was the first free roaming open world type game i had played.

I find III overrated, but still a classic piece of the franchise. I've had plenty of fun with it.
