Looking forward to the new gta. Hopefully they swayed away from gta IV , still haven't finished it and i have had it since it was released. I have played every inch of gta 3 ,vice city, san andreas, liberty city & vice city stories, but vice city is still one of my favorite games of all time. Looking forward to the return to san andreas but there is no beating the vice city story lines. I have been playing video games since the 80's atari asteroids, frogger, donkey kong, etc. but i have always liked the free roam games by gta on playstation. I guess it's the replay ability. It's amazing how i can remember every detail to those games i played years ago, down the most smallest alley's and hidden items, but sometimes i can't remember what i ate for dinner last week.
As for beating up hookers to make money or recoup money, you are not playing the game correctly, you are bored.
Vice City is by far my favorite one. Mostly because of the rock soundtrack. Nothing like cruising at top speed listening to some Iron Maiden, Megadeth or Flock of Seagulls.
And AFCMiamiEast is correct. If you are killing hookers to get your money back, you are bored. Matter of fact. You go parking with a hooker in the game you can increase your life points to 125 if you have full life. It's totally worth it.
Remember. Never goto the Library without your shotgun.
Saints Row 4 coming out soon!
I can't wait to fly the hydra around again. But first things first I'm driving a jet ski off a waterfall.
