Simple enough question.
Which was your favourite island and why?
Was it the memories you had on it?
Was it a certain mission?
Was it an epic rampage that done it for you?

I loved the GTA3 map, the islands were nicely laid out and missions and weapon drops were all nicely distributed around it. From personal experience, i actually liked Portland the most. The missions with the Mafia. The scuffs with the triad's and diablo's. The gritty double-crossing get-away with Catalina. That is the reason i loved Portland the most. It's where all my favourite missions happened. It's where most of my random rampages started. It's where i'd go back to my hideout to collect all my weapon pick-ups most of the time.

Now it's your turn.

Portland, of course! It was cold, damp and grisly looking. Perfectly in tune with the blurred look of the game, best experienced at night.

Among my favorite Portland settings were:
- the harbor with the car import garage and stunt jump over the truck
- Salvatore's mansion overlooking the beach with the Patriot challenge on one side and car dealer's with 'free' Banshee on the other
- Red Light District with all the lights & stuff

Staunton Island was too plain for me - in terms of ground level, etc., but I also feel that there were less places of interest, and of course it was all business like, not an urban ghetto like Portland.

I loved Shoreside Vale's exteria, sloping hills, artificial and natural lakes, the river and the airport, but...there's hardly anything to do. One import/export garage and the final mission won't do.
