The GTA 6 trailer continues to delight everyone. And now it’s time to make a comparison with good old Vice City. Absolute cult following of the saga.
GTA 6 was officially announced and a few days ago we had the opportunity to watch the first trailer. As expected, this revelation shook the internet for hours. Some fans even took the initiative to compare this new work with the Vice City episode. Since both games take place in the same city. What better way to do this than comparing images of the two to see how far we’ve come?
GTA 6 versus Vice City, the comparison full of nostalgia
Same city, but different era (80s vs. 2020s). The official Future Game Show account had fun returning to Vice City to compare the atmosphere and locations in the first GTA 6 trailer. Nostalgia, technical gap, but the atmosphere remained intact. This comparison clearly shows that the atmosphere of Vice City remains largely unchanged as one traverses the ages and eras. New arrivals will discover the city from a more modern perspective, fueled by social networks. Early fans will find iconic locations from their youth on PS2, such as Ocean View, to name just one.
A city of great beauty
Vice City reflects the distinctive architecture and design of the 1980s, particularly with its Neo-Art Deco style and neon signs. The city is therefore decorated with colorful buildings and bright facades that evoke the atmosphere and aesthetics of Miami of that time. The city has extensive white sandy beaches lined with palm trees and accompanied by a lively promenade. This part of Vice City is heavily inspired by South Beach in Miami. Offers an atmosphere of relaxation and leisure by the sea.
Vice City is divided into several districts, each with its own character and atmosphere. The diversity ranges from affluent neighborhoods to disadvantaged areas, including shopping centers and exclusive islands. This helps reflect the socioeconomic diversity of a major city. Although the storyline in GTA 6 is set in the current era, these elements seem to be faithfully respected, even if the next game will introduce us to its setting for the first time. Plus, the Miami-inspired city appears more magnificent than ever.
