  • Is the GTA series the best game series of the last ten years?

    honestly I dont know, i havent played GTA, my tastes in games are eccentric, and even within those eccentric tastes theres plenty ive never played.

    But how about it? GTA vs Civ? GTA vs EU? GTA vs SMAC?
    GTA vs TOAW??

    Or to make it a closer comparison, GTA vs Baldurs Gate??? GTA vs Simcity??

    GTA is not even a contender.

    The Civ series? (including SMAC)
    The Baldur's Gate series?
    The Total War series?
    The Panzer General series?
    The Warcraft series?
    The Warlords series?

    All of these are beyond discussion better.

        I played the Demo of GTA once.

        -

        Best series :

        Civ
        Caesar
        CM
        C&C

        Am I on a pattern here, or is it just my imagination...

          Final Fantasy series is certainly worthy of mention - the older (S)NES games were great. Civilization series is also going to top any list.

          The Command & Conquer, while not something I am a devout fan of, has had a significant impact on that genre.

          GTA would never cross my mind.

            Im wondering if its fair to include SMAC/SMAX along with the 3 civs in one series.

              Well....They both have the exact same gameplay.
              SMACX just happens to take it to another level.
              It's kind of like not including Civ2 because its more advanced than Civ1.

                Wern't they build on the same engine, or least parts of it? hmm I think it was.

                They are basically the game, just differnt graphics and names.

                          Isn't it based on the opera "Parcival" from Richard Wagner?

                            Not sure about Parcival, but it was something to do with Wagner.

                            I think I even visited teh castle featured in that game.

                              GTA1&2 were definately asskicking (especially in multiplayer... ah the sheer fun when doing 8 player-clashes, the carnage!!!)

                              GTA3's graphics were ****ed up on my computer, and as a result I thought the game sucked pretty hard.
                              I have installed Vice City today and I don't seem to have these gfx problems so it looks promising. Nevertheless a game such as this just needs to have an mp section. Still don't udnerstand why they didn't implement that. It would be a huge success

                              PS: The gameplay in GTA3 and VC is really different however, and I kinda liked GTA1&2's style even though the gfx were far inferior!
