  1. Sorry for not posting here first guys.

    Anyway, my real name's Paul, I live in the West Highlands of Scotland and am a fan of a number of things, GTA being one of them. The other things include writing stories, professional wrestling, Metal Gear Solid, Music (Just about everything from the 80s and 90s) and Sci-Fi.

  2. What I want from the next GTA...

    * Create-A-Character option at beginning (Name, Gender, Ethnicity, Choice of voices etc - SEE: 'Ultimate GTA4 Poll').

    * A city with the same 'Worst Place in America' atmosphere as GTA3s Liberty City.

    * Less empty spaces like in GTA San Andreas.

    * Having a similar status as 'Claude' in GTA3, rather than like Tommy Vercetti and Carl Johnson (i.e Low-level criminal rather than eventual gang leader/owner of businesses etc).

    * A Girlfriend that actually play a part in the story.

    * Only able to go out with ONE girlfriend out of a choice of three or four (See Above).

    * Safehouses that are sufficiently spread apart from each other.

    * Safehouses in places that make sense (Suburbs, Projects etc).

    * More interactive environment (eg Being able to pick things up and use them as weapons etc).

    * Slightly more real-time clock (e.g 10 seconds = 1 minute rather than 1 second = 1 minute).

    * Being able to choose whether to Dual Wield weapons or not, rather than being stuck with it once you get it.

    * More Fighting Styles (Boxing, Karate/Kung-Fu, Street Fighting, Judo, 'Dirty' etc). Maybe a simple combo system (No more than 3 buttons per move) and the ability to use a mixture of moves from the different styles.

    * Weapons (SEE: 'Weapons' thread).

    * Larger choice of Hairstyles and Tattoos.

    * The ability to reclaim your weapons after being killed/arrested.

  3. I went with 'Completely made-up City etc', though I hope they make a Liberty City like city in GTA4 (ie, Same atmosphere as GTA3).

    As for the 'Theme', I went with the 'Mafia/Gangster' option.

    For the character, I chose the 'Make your own character' ala the original GTA games. Personally, I think they should do something similar to the Smackdown VS Raw 2006 Create-A-Wrestler mode. This would mean choosing gender, then having a choice of about four or five different voices for each gender. Then you can do skin colour/ethnicity, height, etc, then choose a 'Standard' outfit and Hairstyle while leaving stuff like Muscle, other clothes etc to the game itself.

  4. Let's see...


    Beretta M92FS - Standard Police-issue Pistol.

    Desert Eagle

    Colt Python

  6. Even though Vice City has Motorbikes and GTA3 doesn't, I still prefer GTA3 for a number of reasons.

    One reason is probably because it was such a huge leap from the original Grand Theft Auto to the 3D world of GTA3 which made it a more memorable experience.

    The main reason though is because GTA3s version of Liberty City is still my favourite GTA city, partly because of the atmosphere, which everyone else seems to hate for some reason. Maybe it's just me, but I didn't really like Vice City's sunny cheerful atmosphere. It just didn't make being a mean, nasty criminal seem right, whereas Liberty City's gloomy 'Worst Place in America' atmosphere was perfect for a GTA game.

    Also, the fact that you're playing as a low-level guy as opposed to a mob-boss/businessman like character like Tommy Vercetti was a more enjoyable experience for me, which is probably why 'Claude'/'Fido' is still my favourite playable character in some respects.

    Long story short, I would definitely reccomend GTA3, even if you've already played Vice City or San Andreas.

  7. The only things that bothered me about GTA3 at the time were the drowning and the inability to exit an about to explode vehicle unless it was completely stationary.

    The fact that there were no Motorbikes also bothered me as I love Motorbikes, which is why I looked forward to Vice City so much when I found out it had Motorbikes. That's also the reason why Liberty City Stories on PS2 is such good news for me, although I do hope they will add at least some of San Andreas's features to the PS2 version (Swimming mainly).

  8. Depends on which savegame I'm using (I play a GTA game twice - once as the character and again the way I would do things).
