why do people call the top down gtas 2d? they are not 2 dimensional....you may well call gta 3 2d cus it has a topdown camera. they are 3d because of the environment your in, you can fully see all sides and move around the buildings and other things in the game....the only 2d things are the people and the cars....even they might be considered 3d as you can see not oly its roof but the windows on all sides of the car too like you would on a real car and you can see the persons back and stuff as he runs and falls....

if you wanna get real technical no game is 3d anyway...as you physically cant go into and go around the world, like a drawing, could look realistic but put your hand on the page and all you feel is a flat image on a page despite seeing its drawn in 3d...same goes for games on the screen. its a flat image giving the illusion of 3d. like old 2 games you move the camera in them sometimes like side scrolling for example...same with 3d games just a bit differently. they are technically at the heart...all 2d games but the illusions they give off may not be..like the old gtas...

well i think what defines 3d gaming is that u can actually move around in space in 3 dimensions top down gtas didnt really have any height to them while the 3d gtas u could jump and go ontop of things like buildings and cars

you can in gta 1 and 2, you can jump off ledges, fall off buildings, jump over cars or go under them, go up steps...just with a top down camera, there was even tunnels and water edges to fall off and go through

gta 2 in particular often had really complex maze like structures varying in levels...the church in level 1 is one example of this and the prison in level 2 and zaibatzu basel in level 1 also

sorry i never really played through the first 2 just watched a friend play gta 2 for a lil bit so i guess ur points kinda valid

although im sure it could be argued they are 2d because the sprites were 2d unlike now where they have 3d models and stuff idk its a fine line i think what defines truly 3d or not cause alot of older generation games were somewhat 3d

yeah thats apoint..but the environment of gta 1 and 2 was 3d

take games like road rash, suoer hang on, test drive, outlander, the special zones in sonic 2, isometric games and so on all have 3d looking areas but due to the type of graphics...would you call it 3d? it is a fine line in many cases i agree

God, I'm glad you said this, and your spot on, GTA2 was a step up, and a classic...anyways. And is in its own catogory, like all GTA's.
