I have all the GTA games (on console and PC), but I've actually never beaten any, though I have played them much. I always start over because I stop for a good amount of time before attempting again. Anyways, since Grand Theft Auto, from GTA3 to San Andreas is in a separate universe as GTA4 and up, and the stories for the most part won't collide into GTA5, do you think it's worth taking the time to go through all three of the 3D universe GTA's? I assume most would say yes since they're good, but the whole story thing has me hesitant.
There are more signs in my opinion that say it's worth it, but the gameplay by now on the older ones is a bit archaic, or at least the shooting is, and again, just the fact that the story doesn't connect entirely conflicts with my want to do it. What would you do? I still love the older ones and they're still impressive, but I imagine all three of those are around 20 hours as well, which I guess shouldn't take that long if I sit down and go at it, but for some reason I could never do that with GTA; I finish a few missions and then I'm done.
Red Dead Redemption was the first Rockstar game that I could sit for a prolonged amount of time and get through it because the way it was set up. I could have decided this for myself, but I feel like this is a good way to express what I'm thinking, and you can help if you want. I also didn't beat GTA4, though I'm very close to it I believe, or Chinatown Wars on DS. Oh yeah! I don't have all of them, I don't have the expansions to GTA4, which I do want, but didn't get since I hadn't beat four. OK, bye now.
