He's talking about the cover feature story dude.

GTA stories are really good. SA's story sucked though. GTA stories aren't conventional game stories. They're more about theme than actual story. They don't hold your hand, and they aren't for simpleton's.

Well personally, I love the storylines. The ones in stories series weren't as good, but still decent. You're entitled to your opinion so I can't argue.

And instead of double posting, edit your first post.

GTA 3's was horrid.... There was no story at all..... Just some guy going around doing things for no reason at all same with Vice City CJ atleast had a reason.... If you play GTA for the story there is something wrong with you I still like the stories and junk but they are horrible....

So were getting laughs at GTAIV.....

The stories are what make each game unique and interesting. Just throwing out a new character and location, and some new vehicles and weapons, doesn't make a new GTA an amazing experience. Games that are not truly meant to be story based will not have a fixed character. You'd have the ability to create any sort of character you'd like.

The storylines also will help familiarize you with the gameplay area. You learn where things are, where to go, how to get there. Also remember those messages you'll see at the top left hand corner while on specific missions. Tutorials to teach you how to do certain things.

The storyline adds to the replay value. Keeps you wanting to play more and more to discover the protagonist's destiny. Some of the missions have you doing unique things that you couldn't do otherwise outside the story. The story just adds so much to the game that without it, the game could just be boring.

See, this is why GTA isn't for simpleton's.

GTAIII's story isn't about the main character, it's about the people you work for: the scum of society. It's about the world we live in. It's about the people that are effected by the scum you work for, either through the media they control (Donald Love), or the gang relationships that are effected (Killing Kenji and starting a gang war, while acting like nothing happened to Asuka). It's about the commercialism that plague's the airwaves,"Why buy a small car? Are you a small person?" It's about the hyperbolic amount of violence and overly violent stance that GTA percieves modern America as. Ammunation in every single game is a byproduct of this. "The store that helped defeat communism!" THAT is a Grand Theft Auto story. It's a hyper real representation of our world and the things that taint it.

The main character of GTA games is the AREA IT TAKES PLACE IN, not the character you control. The reason for this is because the things you do these acts are byproducts of the city's turmoil and maladjustment.

Furthermore, the thing about your main character in III is what further drives the story into amazing detail. You're a henchman that does things for other people, yes, but through your violent behavior you form an anti-hero state. Depsite doing these violent acts, YOU'RE the person who's cleaning up the vermin off these streets. This city is one violent cesspool where everything bad goes on and NO ONE (even the police) does a thing about it. Through violent acts and working as an underling for the scum of societ YOU are the person saving the city from itself by using the same thing that it "glorifies" (if it even does that): VIOLENCE.

Suck it up. You aren't smart enough for GTA. You lack the imagination to pull together the pieces. A *story* does not have to be told through cutscene, and GTAIII is my favorite GTA BECAUSE of this. Theme can tell a story. Watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, gorgio.

If you couldn't recognise the story in GTAIII and Vice City and seem to think that they were shit then you're an idiot. CJ this, CJ that, CJ stop your fucking whining, almost every sentence out of his mouth was a complaint, and the the story was the worst of the 3. Why don't you run along and play Quake or Dynasty Warriors, those games seem to fit your taste best.

Oh by the way if good stories anger you then please play Okami or watch National Treasure, the mere thought of you pissed off makes me tingle in places.

Oh also by the way, get the fuck out.

@Himuro: The proof that GTA isn't for simpletons are those that commit crimes and say "GTA Made me do it".

It's simple and easy to understand and it doesnt keep it from being a bad story which it was.... The characters sucked and arent better than anything on god father sorpranos or scarface.... Actually alot of GTA was made off other stories which would keep it from being as good as those stories... The stories are horrible..... Yall need to listen to some deeper stories if you think anything in GTA3 is complex.... Your acting like GTA's storyline can compete with Metal Gear Solid..... you only speak to ppl fo a couple of seconds going into a building acting like your going to get the best story ever in the coule of seconds that they assign you your mission.

Dude, I think you should stop playing GTA alltogether cause you simply don't get it, you just seem like one of those people who played San Andreas just cause it was all the rage at the time. Calling the storyline shit, are you mad, saying San Andreas had the best you're and idiot, do you even know that all the stories are linked? I'll admit it's nowhere near as deep as MGS but it does go down pretty far with all the connections and references between everyone, if you've missed that then you're clearly one of those people who don't get GTA.

at yall actually thinking GTA games have a good story SA is the only one in the series that had true character development GTA 3 didnt have anything you really dont get to learn much about anyone all gta games are is just a bunch of characters that you end up finding out all interlink and have something to deal with each other causing a chain reaction of crime..... It's not that great.

It's progression, man. No planes IS a step backwards (seeing as SA had 'em), unless they include spaceships or something.

And tbh, in terms of storyline, GTA is definitely no Metal Gear Solid IMO.

Yeah, they arn't good, that's why some stars sign on to do the story. Look, I'll admit, it isn't as good as MGS but it terms, they are completely different stories, that's like comparing Star Wars against The Godfather. Just because you don't like the storyline doesn't exactly mean it's crap, nor does it give you the right to tell other people it's crap and that they are idiots for liking it.

Let's not flame him for his opinion. If he didn't like the GTA stories, that's just him.

(oh and traveling back a few weeks when I was angry about having to wait an hour to view the trailer, it was because of fans/players like this, swade, no offense, viewing it before a hardcore fan of the series like myself)
