    Does anyone here still play Vice City? I like playing the game now and then but I think I haven't done a complete playthrough since like 2010.
    Why do you still play VC? Nostalgic reasons? Have you been in love with the game all this time?

    I still play VC not only because of nostalgia, but also for the crime sprees. I am obsessed with gunning down soldiers in the game, especially in the mission Sir, Yes Sir! where Tommy takes out the soldier on top of the Rhino with his sniper rifle while the convoy stops to get doughnuts. Eventually the soldiers will start shooting in several directions, being unaware that Tommy is on the rooftop of the doughnut store. He then steals the Rhino and runs over the convoy trucks and Patriots.

    I go back through now and again. It's always fun to go through play with that awesome soundtrack.

    I played Vice City a lot when I was younger, I still know a lot about it now after all this years. My friends just installed GTA Vice City on a school computer and are playing it during the time off and are really enjoying it. We also attracted a lot of people that watch us play it. I was really surprised that many of the people watching us play didn't even know what the game was called, but after we told them what it is called they imidiatly figured out, that it was a prvious release of the GTA series. After we stared to play Vice City again the nostalgia took over all of us, we were going crazy knowing how much we loved this game back in the days and how much we played on it. The graphics on it don't bother me at all, all that I need is the cool gameplay that the GTA Vice City has to offer.

    If I still had it I would definitely give it a go again. I remember this was one of the games that made me fall in love with gaming back on the PS2. Used to play it in my friends basement, and convinced me into buying a console even though my parents where against it.
    I remember riding around on my PSG600, hitting that jump over the canal, or heading into the dance club and just mowing everyone down.

    GTA: Vice City was one of my favorite entries in the series so I still replay it every now and then. Playing it is great for a nostalgic trip but even though it looks dated, the game is still fun. I still fall in love with everything about the game years since it was released.

    The game was fun to play and I really enjoyed the soundtrack and the cars on that game so I will occasionally play it on my laptop. I don't ever play through the entire storyline as I will just travel the city stealing cars and killing people. The only old Grand Theft Auto game that I have bothered going back and playing through was San Andreas because that storyline was the best of any game I have ever played and it is the only Grand Theft Auto that had a casino you could go and play in too.

    I haven't played it in about four years. I want to get it on Android so I can finally complete the entire game because I didn't have the chance to do on PC because of the difficulty of some of the missions especially 'demolition man'.

    I last played the game last 2006, and I was able to complete it too, but the pc that had the game got broken and we don't have the installer for it, so it's been years since I last played the game. But the mission "Dode Dodo" is still very fresh on my mind because of how hard it is and how long it took to me to complete it, and I think that also because of the awesome soundtrack, it will always be one of my fave GTA series of all time.

    I haven't done a complete play-through in at least 7 years. I used to record my gameplay on our video camcorder. I still have a recording somewhere, unless I burned the disc a few years ago when I had a change of heart. When I first played the game, I would try finding the special motorcycles near the arena. I can't even recall if I had to do certain missions to get them.

    Yeah, I still play it every now and then. I usually replace the cars with real ones, and add different mods to it, so it's still fun after all these years. You'd be surprised to find out how many people are still modding GTA VC.

    My all time favorite GTA game! I simply love this game!

    Back in the day when it was released I cried so that my parents would buy me this game. I've spent countless hours playing it. Last time I played it was about a year ago.

    It will always be my favorite GTA!

    I think I stopped playing it like a year ago, it's still one of my favorite games ever :)

    Now that you mentioned it I think I have to dig it out, dang you :)

    Sometimes. But very rarely... I've just played it for nostalgia reasons, but I haven't actually played through the story in a really long time.. I should, though, I think it'd be fun to re-live that one, haha.

    I just play it if the wave of nostalgia overwhelms me, I usually just go to that dance club and mow down everyone with my machine gun, then start a rampage throughout the whole city.

    I just finished playing through San Andreas. Next, I will be playing Vice City, and finally, GTA III. I will then play through GTA IV one more time, and by then, should be November and playing GTA V on pc. Had a lot of fun in SA, everything but tags, horseshoes, pics, and oysters is finished. I will finish those, then it's on to Vice City.

    I'm going back to it in part for nostalgia, but mostly because I planned to do full playthroughs leading up to GTA IV's release on PC, and I didn't, so I want to do it this time for GTA V.

    I will definitely be collecting hidden packages in VC and III as early as possible and doing vigilante/ambulance/taxi missions early as well - the bonuses those 4 things provide are really crucial for those games, especially Vice City. The only issue I foresee having is going to be completing that race against the red sabre. I forget the guys name, but I want to beat him without blowing out his tires this time :p

    I have to get back into playing Vice City real soon! Sadly, I haven't even completed the whole play through even once :(. It's not that I didn't want to, but because I was too busy completing San Andreas (which itself has a huge story). After completing it I just felt that I needed to take a break from GTA.

    It's been a long time since that and I sure do plan to play it again soon. I'll admit it wasn't the 'biggest' success of the GTA franchise, but it was still a pretty big hit. It brings back so many memories because I used to watch my brother play it all the time before I got around to playing it myself.

    I would if I had my disk. I got lost a long time ago, and I've just not bought a new copy yet.
    I've actually never completed it. Always got stuck on some random rampage with my car. Just like the other GTA games.
