Just a quick poll to find out everyone's favourite GTA game on the PS2 (or xbox for that matter).
Mine was GTA3 purely for the city and the fact that it made so much ground for the series, it broke all the rules by giving you so much freedom. No game has come close to the originality of this game, there have been contenders (True Crime, The Getaway) but they were so inferior. I loved every second of the game.
My least favourite was San Andreas because it had too many sim elements to it. I still havent completed this game as there was too much to do that I lost focus of what to do next. My opinion is that rockstar over complicated the game.
