Get both. You can't really compare apples to oranges. If you're looking for sheer content, though, VC is definitely your game. More cars (about double), more weapons, 3x bigger map, tons of side property missions, etc. III just has the NYC that I really enjoy.

I wish :/ I don't have any consoles.

Dayum. Getting both definitely seems like the better option. I think I'll get Vice City just to get started, and than get GTA 3 in just a bit, so I can get used to playing a GTA.

If you're gonna play Vice City first, then GTA III will seem like a huge downgrade and you'll probably stop playing it immediately. If you start with GTA III, you'll love it and once you get bored of it, you can switch to VC. You'll even learn to appreciate bikes, the variety of cars, missions and the huge map.

Just start with Chinatown. It's made for mobile, and the retro top down look is awesome.

After that III. Then Vice city. Then GTA V and GOOD BYE YOUR SOCIAL LIFE MWUHAHAHAHAHA

=>> HEY YOU! Why own an iPad if you haven't played CRABITRON? <<=

Playing: Corridor Z, Goblin Sword, Lost Toys, Duet Game, Layton Brother, Threes!, Solomon's Keep, Crabitron, Punch Quest, IB3, Sword & Sworcery (Recommend them all!)

Chinatown is good but i wouldnt personally bother with it

GTA 3 and Vice City are two classics. You should really do 3 before Vice City, but VC is a true classic and a game people will be talking about in years and years to come.

Alright, I'm getting GTA III. Thanks for all the help! I'll get VC soon though.
