In case you didn’t know, as part of a Memorial Day weekend sale, Rockstar Games has discounted Grand Theft Auto III in the Play Store to a single dollar. That means for only $1, you can cruise around Liberty City, helping virtual city dwellers and doing all sorts of good deeds, right? Let’s be real, you’re gonna run over pedestrians. But at least you’ll have a good time doing it. Don’t forget, GTA3 is Tegra optimized meaning you can look forward better performance and HD quality resolutions with the stutter of other processors. You can find it in the TegraZone or Google Play Store.

The next GTA game from the series I’d like to see get the THD treatment? Grand Theft Auto Vice City. It may not come as much of a surprise to many of you, but I’ve always had a thing for hot pink and new wave music. Don’t forget to tell us your pick and good luck everyone!

  4. Vice City, for 2 reasons.
    1 . The best GTA imo (GTA2) does not need to get the THD treatment.
    2. When driving around in Vice city with the radio on, you can sometimes hear some nice skits. My favourite and the reason I like the game so much: Freedom River! It is about some people wanting a Freedom river, dun ask me what it is, or why they want it, but that one always cracks me up for some reason. We! Want! A! River!…..A FREEDOM river! xD

    1. I don’t remember that and I’ve played the game a lot. What station is it on?

      1. I don’t remember, but you can google for vice+city+freedom+river+radio and one of the results is a full transcript of almost everything that plays on the radio there…including freedom river!

  5. GTA IV is outta the question, unless we had it streamed through cloud gaming. I’ll have to go with Vice City in that case.

    1. A novel idea, indeeeeed! I like it :D

  45. Most definitely Vice City!

  46. Id like to see San Andreas Optimized from the THD franchise. That In my opinion is the first GTA-aside from Liberty City being to the first to go 3D-to go really in depth.

  48. Vice city, who doesn’t like them some 80’s?

  81. By far Vice City would be the most amazing to have. Apart from being my personal favorite of the GTA’s, and the last one I played, it also had an amazing soundtrack.

  82. Grand Theft Auto Vice City. For sure. #Swaghereplease!

  83. Vice City

  84. GTA Vice City, if its a hit, maybe San Andreas

  85. GTA IV. Because I never finished it on the XBOX. Even though I hate to admit it.

  86. Vice City was the best of them all.

  87. Tossing in another vote for Vice City.

  88. My favorite GTA was Vice City, so if I had a choice that’s the one I would choose to be optimized for Tegra devices.

  89. San Andreas should be the next Android/Tegra GTA game

  90. GTA IV!!!

  91. GTA IV

  92. Vice City

  93. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  94. I’d like to see Grand Theft Tricycle

  95. Although it probably doesn’t need Tegra optimising given its age, the original GTA should be next. The soundtrack is the best (the country radio station is especially hilarious) and of course everyone loves lining up a gooouranga!

  96. Definitely Vice City because of the radio stations and the flying was still difficult!

  97. Vice City

  98. Well I’ve played most of them EXCEPT Vice City, so I guess I’ll vote for it so I have a reason to buy it!

  99. How about a GTA I have been imagining.

  107. Vice City for sure.

  108. I love GTA San Andreas but I really wanna see Vice City. I never finished it back in the day, so I would like to get the chance.

  109. GTA vice city only if they can get the 80’s soundtrack back.
    I would cruse the city in that game just to listen to the radio.

  110. Vice City, no contest. As I was playing through GTA3, I was remembering all the fun of Vice City and wishing it had been the one to get the THD treatment.

  111. Vice City as well, it just connected with me in a way. It felt like an original game, yet still had the GTA flair to it. Plus I liked the Scar face feel to it.

  112. Vice City all the way. 100%

  113. Vice City, many fond memories of playing that on PS2.

  114. I, for one, would like an HD remake of GTA 1.

  125. I’m voting for Grand Theft Auto IV.

  126. Vice City, seems a clear favorite….hint hint

  128. I’d like to see vice city

  129. Vice City for me

  130. It is starting to get repetitive but how about Vice City!

  132. Vice City! Miami was the perfect city!

  133. GTA San Andreas

  136. I vote for GTA IV.

  137. Vice City my favourite

  138. Vice City

  139. Why not the original top view gta? Seems like it would work well on a phone or tablet. They could even work in motion controls.

  140. GTA 1!

  141. EVERY GAME EVER! (give me as much THD-optimized stuff as I can get :)

  142. GTA most definitely!

  143. San Andreas would be an awesome remake, especially on the Tegra 3 chip

  144. That easy GTA San Andreas, love this game.

  145. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is what needs to happen – simply because of the Hot Coffee.

  146. I’d have to vote vice city as well, though I’d prefer just Android optimized unless I win this cause I can’t afford a Tegra3 right now…

  148. Would love to see Chinatown from the DS get expanded.

  155. San Andreas for sure! The game even has support for multiplayer(at least the PS2 version did), it would be awesome to connect to your friends and cooperate in a massacre or just do some races :D

  156. San Andreas all the way! 2nd choice would definitely be Vice City though!

  157. San Andres, customizing your characters weight, hair, and tattoos was a great feature!

  158. Vice City needs to be the next.

  159. I would definitely have to agree with GTA Vice City, I loved that game!

  160. GTA IV: Ballad of Gay Tony

  161. Vice City is my pick

  162. Vice City.

  163. Vice City cause Tommy Vercitti

  164. Gotta be Vice City

  165. I would go with San Andreas! That was the first one to make a few nice changes! Rock Star always delivers!

  166. Would absolutely love to see San Andreas on my Nexus. Would imagine it would be hard work flying upside under bridges in the spitfire-a-like plane using my phone though. Would be great to have the chance!

  167. Vice City, the music on that game alone is worth a game on Android!

  168. GTA: San Andreas

  169. Vice City

  170. Even though it would likely be followed by tons of unnecessary controversy, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would be a great choice.

  171. Anything with Hot Coffee in it. Yes, that’s right.

  196. Vice City all the way

  197. Send me some Tegra goodies…..

  198. In my honest opinion there is no other GTA title that is more worthy of THD treatment than the arguably best GTA title to date that being none other than GTA: San Andreas. It would look absolutely stunning with smoothed textures and all around refined man i’m drooling just thinking of it right now lol. And I would love to play it on the brand new ASUS Transformer Pad that you guys are giving away. **wink ** wink** lol

  199. I would like to see San Andreas come to life on a tablet.

  200. My vote is for Vice City all the way!

  201. TBH, I’ev never played GTA and I never will. But for the sake of jolly competition and because it seems quite popular in these comments, I’m gonna say San Andreas.

  202. Gotta pick Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Chris i had the most fun playing that game than all the rest combined lol. Desperately hoping I win the prize pack lol

  203. GTA: Vice City, most definitely.

  204. san andreas

  205. GTA San Andreas

  206. Probably Liberty City Stories.

  207. San Andreas was my first GTA so that’d be pretty cool

  208. Although it would undoubtedly have its obstacles, Vice City for sure. It’s my personal favorite GTA, and it would be amazing if it were THD optimized. Just my $0.02, but then again that’s what you asked for :)

  209. San Andreas

  210. All i remmeber from GTA is jacking tanks, i want that

  211. GTA: Chinatown Wars, it’s out for iOS already, so it shouldn’t be too hard to port.

  212. Definitely Vice City. San Andreas is probably too graphic intensive for the Tegra 3, but Vice City would look and play great!

  213. GTA: San Andreas…..hands down!!!!

  214. Vice City would have been my choice

  215. I have to agree with these comments ….San Andreas is a classic GTA game….its the only GTA I’ve played fully

  218. Most definitely Vice City… It’s my all time favorite GTA and it would be awesome to see it with Tegra 3.

  219. I’d love vice city, one of the best games of all time

  220. DEfinitely San Andreas!

  221. I agree, GTA: San Andreas… so I can have Samuel L on my phone 8-)

  224. GTA IV all the way!

  225. I’d like to see Vice City.

  226. Vice city for sure!!

  235. I would love to see GTA San Andreas. It was an awesome game.

  236. I agree Grand Theft Auto Vice City

  237. Vice City is the easiest to digest IMO. It has the best storyline, most interesting location, and the best balance in terms of size and scope. The sound track is a nice bonus. I will say however that it can be extremely frustrating at times :)

  238. Vice city!

  239. GTA 5

  249. San andreas!


  251. GTA: Vice City
