Love GTA:VC and GTA:SA, I like GTA:SA a little more only because it expands and continues what was great in VC, it also brings back some characters from VC showing what happened to them.
GTA:VC was the first GTA I really loved though, GTA 3 was fun to kill people and all but VC is the one I cared about for the story and beyond mass killings. GTA:SA just improved on it and gave a huge area to explore while referencing GTA:VC more then not as if it was a true sequel.

Like wfo400, I was born in the 1970's (1977) and really enjoy the vibe that this game offers. I enjoy all the "Grand Theft Auto" games (that includes the earlier games for the PS1), but the two Vice City games are my favorite (I'm a fan of the television series "Miami Vice", so I'm pretty much in nirvana as that goes:-)
