I just played through the trilogy on PSN classics and I have to say San Andreas is my least favorite of them. Sure you can do a whole bunch of stuff but the story is just boring and weak and I really hated how they made you get all those territories right at the end. Also those flight missions were complete BS and the missions you were training for weren't NEARLY as hard as the actual trainging.
Anywho I played Vice City next and holy crap does it hold up. Sure there's less space, but it's all so much tighter and I just loved the setting and the characters more. I don't wanna play as some nobody trying to take over a street who I feel dumb just listening to his friends talk, I want to be a gangster who actually has some ambition/intelligence.
GTA3 is somewhere in the middle I liked the story but not the setting quite as much as Vice City. I also liked the driving in Vice and GTA3 much more than San Andreas as the countryside was way too bumpy and giant in San Andreas. I hope GTA6 is in Vice City again.
