GTA Vice City vs Gangstar Vegas

Just curious which one you prefer!

Vice City is one of the greatest games of all time, but it was made 10 years ago. The graphics and mechanisms are really dated.

Gangstar on the other hand is made for 2013 and borrowed many great ideas from San Andreas and GTA IV. The graphics look much better as well.

Which one do you prefer and why? My pick is Gangstar Vegas, I root for the underdogs and really feel Gameloft did a wonderful job here. The production value is 2013 and it is simply a lot more fun to play.

Vice City will always win for the soundtrack alone.

Can't hug every cat.

Different games, but I prefer Vice City by a mile.

Gangstar Vegas feels like it was made by people who were shown trailers of GTA and told to make a game like it. It lacks the real detail, style, and quality of an actual GTA game. No contest, GTA Vice City wins by leaps and bounds.

Gangstar Vegas is nice, I like it for skydiving. That's about it, and killing people. Well being able to swim in that game also works too.

Although while GTA Vice City is dated, the game is still pretty awesome with a kick ass soundtrack. Just driving around and listening to the music is awesome.

I prefer Gangstar Vegas, more action and bloomy colors. Gta is dull.

If Gangstar Vegas was similar in terms of Vice City and having a kick ass soundtrack with cars that can have popped tires and can lose doors and stuff then I'd pick GV hands down, but it doesn't.

Nah, I'd just want Vegas' graphics + aiming system grafted onto VC, then everything would be perfect.
