The GTA franchise has always carried a certain sense of arrogance, style and sarcasm. No other game in the franchise illustrates this better than Vice City.
Set in Vice City in the ’80s, inspired by the real city of Miami and taking inspiration from some of the most popular movies and TV shows of the’ 80s, GTA Vice City is simply amazing.
Its colorful soundtrack is a collection of some of the biggest hits of the 80s, spanning the most popular genres. From Danzig to Michael Jackson, the game’s soundtrack has something for everyone.
Vice City’s neon-lit streets are the perfect playground for our protagonist Tommy Vercetti, who must rise to the top of the underworld in a Scarface-style charge.
The game’s many cinematic inspirations, soundtrack, and large open world made the game a huge success upon release and was considered a huge game in terms of size at the time.
GTA Vice City file size
GTA Vice City may not be a huge game compared to the current standard, taking around 1.6 GB on hard drive. However, in 2002, 1.6 GB was a huge amount of space on a hard drive.
Back then, hard drives did not offer the usual 1TB of hard drives today. The game was considered a great game by 2002 standards. Although it shouldn’t be a problem in terms of space or requirements today.
