I see several GTA games in the PS2 shelves, which one should I buy first?

I already have San Andreas.

I've played San Andreas alot, but I know almost nothing about the GTA series. Please guide me. Thanks.

I would recommend all of them (at least try one of the original top-down games). It might be a little hard to go back to lesser graphics but Vice City isn't too much different from SA and III will make you appreciate the newer titles.

I would say III it was what started the 3D GTA series. Vice city I recommend too. I personally wouldn't recommend any of the Stories series because they're PSP ports and not as great as the PS2/Xbox exclusives.

So you would recommend III? I don't have time to play every GTA game, I have to single out the best ones.

So many GTA games has something with "Stories" in the title, are they all very good?
I wish R* would use a bit more original titles. One time I saw a new game in the shop I did mistake it for an old game.

I would honestly recommend all of them. The entire series is Gold. But I have to say get III first. Then Vice city.

Start with III. And some of the original top-down games are free from Rockstar if you have the time.

I was never able to get the games to install. My comp is a old Dell PC and I have windows XP home. I don't know tech info because it was given to me buy my aunt.

Ah, thanks for the warning on Stories. Is the graphics poor? Or the sound? What makes them less good?
GTA III is very old, yet it is better than the Stories?

The original games were a "top-down view" where the camera was high above you. They were 2D games. For example:


I couldn't really play them but it's worth trying.

PS1 series

The Stories were originally for the PSP, so they were kind of like watered down GTAs. They're still worth the money but older GTAs are so much better. better graphics, better stories, not a whole lot of shitty extras.

If you're already playing San Andreas just upgrade to a PS3/XBox for GTA4 or check out Vice City first.

Was Vice City the game prior to San Andreas?

Yes and III was prior to VC. If you look at the main site, top right has little icons for the different games in order of oldest to newest.

Dammit, I was very quick to delete my post but not quick enough.

There is a brief description of each game behind those icons. I also found another article with a list of the games.

I think I'll buy GTA III and Vice City. I'm unsure about the others.

nope, not quick enough. biggrin.gif

Those should be good. You'll enjoy them and you may notice the connections from SA. Especially the main character from III.

What are the best GTA games. There is only the One best Game. San Andreas.


--------------------
************* Game Hints *************
Don't go Mission to Mission. Spend time just looking around, behind walls/bushes, on roofs, under bridges. Explore the Car park buildings and anyother building you can enter...
Do the Gang Tags, Photo's, Horseshes as soon as you can.
NO Cheats -- NO Mods

That is probably true. It was also the most "matured" GTA game in its era. We'll see if the current era will reach that height.
