Vice City was my first GTA game I saw in a 3D environment. I feel very nostalgic for it. I love the 80s setting of the story, it sunny and very pastiche but fun nevertheless. I still remember how amazing mini games were in this title, I spent hundreds of hours doing side missions killing criminals and working as a taxi driver finally unlocking jumping cars, that was amazing!
I can't remember how many times I've stayed in a car just because of the song playing on the radio, Vice City introduced me to great classic songs, which I still remember to this day and I go in YouTube to listen them at times. Almost all missions of the game are good, some were really hard, (like the toy helicopter one that one was a nightmare), controls are great and graphics are very good. GTA Vice City is the third GTA game I've ever played in my life, San Andreas being the first and GTA IV being the second, however GTA Vice City is the one I remember most of, Vice City is the game I had most fun with and the only GTA game I remember the music from, truly a masterpiece!
One of my favorite games ever made, and definitely my favorite GTA up to this point for one very, very simple reason: the atmosphere. In this game, you're in the 80's, in Vice City, and cocaine is rampant. The world is nearing the end of the Cold War, and everything has a pumped up, American spirit radiating from it in this time period... probably due to the cocaine. Driving around, running dozens of people over while being chased by the cops as Flock of Seagulls' "I Ran" is playing in the background is one of the many simple joys in this game. This game's charm is bursting out the seams during every cutscene, the main characters are a nice homage to Miami Vice, and the plot is just about the same. This is pure 80's bliss from the legendary soundtrack, to the parodies on every corner, and even to the title alone, in that ridiculous vibrant font. If you have not played this game before, definitely pick it up and play it. Turn on the radio, (Emotion 98.3 or Wave 103 are the best choices in my opinion) and have fun. Just, try not to get your suit wet.
I've played almost all of the Grand Theft Auto games (and own them) and I have to say this one is my favorite. It was the very first Grand Theft Auto game that I played and I instantly fell in love with it and the series. Great music, fun gameplay and one of the best stories in the series is hard to pass up for so little of a price.
