Vice City has the coolest aesthetic, the funnest missions, and free enough from annoyances and pointless bullshit to make it timeless. The only thing I actively hate about VC is that it's too easy overall.
GTA IV (while I'm at it) almost bordered into the "awful" territory for me. Not sure why, I guess I must ahve slipped out of the target audience somewhere down the line - the developers sort of went with "realism" and "more content", whereas I was looking for "cartoony" and "simplicity". (as in design, not difficulty. I'm not a total wuss) I'm afraid HD and playing darts with my cousin Roman doesn't quite cut it for this guy~
I do readily admit that I only played it for about 5 hours though, which I guess is nothing for a GTA game. Perhaps it's all my own shortcomings, and I would've got more out of it if I stuck with it... although... no, fuck that, why would I even bother carrying on with something I've not been that keen after five hours? It's a video game, not a degree in Economics. A lot of my friends had similar thoughts, and couldn't be arsed investing the time either. The one guy I know who completed really swears by the "awesomeness" of the DLC, though.
