Out Of Every Grand Theft Auto Game, This One Stands Above The Rest

For many, the original “Grand Theft Auto” PlayStation trilogy — consisting of “GTA 3”, “GTA: Vice City”, and “GTA: San Andreas” — will always be the gold standard of the series, and rightfully so. Each of the aforementioned games played a pivotal role in not just improving upon the series, but pushing the art of video game development into the future. Unfortunately, as with many classic games, the PlayStation 2 era of games is also somewhat dated when it comes to its graphics, control scheme, and overall gameplay.

Over on Reddit, many fans still hold the older “GTA” games in high regard, but note that they lack in areas where the newer entries don’t. “I can get past the clunky graphics,” Redditor u/Zero0_Karma said in response to how games like “San Andreas” hold up today. “[B]ut what kills me is the punishing lack of a checkpoint system during excruciatingly long missions.” 

Another user, u/SchwartzJesus, couldn’t get past the dated control scheme, particularly in driving sequences. “They’re really good for nostalgia reasons but in my opinion after you’ve spent so much time on modern games they don’t really hold up,” another commenter added. “They are classics and will always be considered great games but I personally don’t enjoy playing them as much as the new ones.”
