It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new entry in the GTA series, but with the release of the remastered edition of GTA III and Vice City, fans are wondering if it is worth paying for.
The how many gta games are there is a question that has been asked in the past. It’s not clear how many GTA games exist, but the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition is one of them.

One reader wonders why stories have become so accurate during the epidemic, while the Wednesday Inbox wishes there were more football games to challenge FIFA.

I’ll pay a hefty price for it. I’m not sure whether the concerns about GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition being too costly are completely justified. In general, I agree that £70 (or £65) is excessive, but we’re talking about remasters of three huge titles, and as long as they can show that the games aren’t just boosted to 4K and 60fps, I believe that’s a reasonable price.
I’m not sure whether you’ve recently played GTA 3 or any of the others, but the game plays like a dog. I wouldn’t want to be the one to bring it up to date, but if that’s what they manage to accomplish, I believe £65 is a fair price.
It’s been true for a long time, but there’s a genuine issue with determining value for money in today’s games. There’s no simple way to tell if a game is worth it or not, what with microtransactions, bloated open world games, and DLC being held back until later. Some games cost £60 or £70 and are well worth it, while others cost £10 and are not. The solution is definitely to have a lot more price variation, but I believe the high price is warranted in this instance. Chumley-Warner
Samus’ greatest work I’m thrilled to see Metroid Dread doing so well in both critical and commercial terms. I’ve got it, as well as an OLED model, scheduled for my birthday at the end of the month, but I’m wondering as to which of the series’ installments readers and GC believe is the greatest. Super Metroid and Metroid Prime are both considered 10/10 games, thus I’m guessing it’s the third? Or is it Zero Mission?
It’s a really high-quality series, as you said in your assessment, with just a few duds — and most of them lately. I appreciate how the path back was to just create a decent Metroidvania with no big gimmicks (the entire robot thing feels like a pretty logical development of Fusion) and just excellent solid game design. At least, that’s what I’ve read, and I’m hoping it comes out the same way when I play it. Dorf PS: F-Zero is the next stage in the recovery process!
GC: We’d probably rank it after Metroid Prime and Super Metroid as the third best. However, Zero Mission is also fantastic, so we’d have to play them all again to be certain.
There are no mysteries here. The £70 price tag for the GTA remasters comes as no surprise to me. What I’m more curious about is why the packaged versions of the games aren’t coming out this year for the next generation consoles. That seems like a lot of money lost during the holidays, and it’s the one aspect of the rumors I’m not certain about.
I am, however, astounded by the number of rumors that circulate these days, as well as how accurate they are. I get that GC is cherry-picking the most plausible candidates, but I can’t recall the last time anything was disclosed that hadn’t already been leaked.
It’s not like the internet is brand new, so what has changed in the past year or so that has influenced how things are done? Obviously, this is true, but why should this make rumors more common? I can only guess that it’s either friends or family members discovering what someone is working on at home, or that the fact that individuals are no longer all in the same location means that knowledge is spreading out and seeping through the cracks.

20 years of protests On Tuesday, it was the 20th anniversary of Ace Attorney, which many people probably didn’t realize, but which Capcom didn’t overlook. Never a huge seller, but those games are one of my favorites, and it’s one of the few that my partner likes as well.
There seem to have been some actual events in Japan, as well as an anniversary website with some new stuff that is almost certainly unavailable in the United States.
There are no new game announcements, but the fact that they put in that much work inspires me. Phoenix as the last Smash character would have been fantastic. Pinky
Decision on bananas The reason Fortnite lacks distinctive personalities is something I’ve never understood. I know there are some named characters, but only die-hard fans (like my kid) know who they are, and Jonesey is the only one who appears in cut scenes and other sequences.
I don’t mind either way, but I have a feeling they’ll come to regret it when it comes to things like creating a movie or a cartoon program, which would have occurred a lot sooner if there had been genuine characters to base it on.
There will be no outcry when they attempt to cast Chris Pratt since no one will recognize or care who the character is. ‘I didn’t realize the banana had a name,’ they’ll say at most. Kramer
Puns about video games I was nearly in tears of excitement when I heard that Metroid Dread is off to a fantastic start in the UK, having already been the series’ fastest-selling title since Metroid Prime (and that’s not counting digital sales). And it seems to be doing extremely well all around the world. What a success story for E.M.M.I.diate.
Now, I’m not a psychic or anything, but I believe it will sell between five and six million copies by the end of March 2022. Magic in the inbox.
We may be looking at a future in which the series maintains a high level of economic viability for an extended period of time. Now go out and show your support for this fantastic, very important franchise. Samus is back on the scene! Energized Gamer PS: This is a required admission: I still believe that Metroid: Other M is a mediocre Metroid game, with some horribly manufactured moments, but a highly decent action adventure game with some excellent battle systems and memorable set pieces and monsters, having completed it a second time about a year ago. In my opinion, this is a 6.5 to 7/10 game.
DadJokeCentral Thanks for the game recommendations, GC and Mcfly1888; it seems that there are a lot of excellent retro/indie games to pick from. Also, one of the games I was looking forward to on the Wii U back in the day (Rive) was just released for the Switch, which is a nice bonus.
Poor joke of the day: Why hasn’t Nintendo released a new Metroid game in such a long time? Because Metroids use a lot of energy! Netwoim

Football should be played. It’s been a long since EA published a game that didn’t include FIFA in the title.
It reminds me of the days when there were so many spin-off games. Around 1999-2000, I recall having The F.A. Premier League Stars on my PC. It included just English league clubs and a star-based system for improving player metrics.
FIFA: Road To World Cup 98 and World Cup 98 were both released at the time. Unfortunately. World Cup 98 wasn’t available on the Saturn, and I didn’t have a computer at the time. As a result, I’ve never played the game.
It’s odd that there are so few football championships these days. Sensible Soccer, Sensible World Of Soccer, Total Football, Striker, Goal!, Kick Off 3, Football Glory, and Eat The Whistle were all available on my Amiga. European Football, and John Barnes
Those were the days (well, maybe not Kick Off 3). Commodore 64 enthusiast
also-rans in your inbox It’s an old Reddit joke, and I’m sure I’m not the first to notice it, but reading the GC story about the GTA remaster and seeing that three GTA games were published on PlayStation 2, while GTA 5 was released on three generations of platforms was unsettling. Mitchell
GC: There were five if you include the PSP ports Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories.
After a few hours of Metroid Dread, I’ve found that I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with coloring in all of the squares on the map screen when Samus enters each room/location. I’m curious if anybody else is doing anything similar. Is it OCD or am I just odd? Smokin Monkey
The topic for this week’s Hot Topic is Reader Bernardo proposed the topic for this weekend’s Inbox, asking, “What is your favorite platform game?”
It may be a 2D or 3D platformer, but which do you prefer and why? Do you like the genre in general, and do you like how it’s changed through time? What do you believe the greatest innovative ideas in recent years have been, and how do you think things will evolve in the next generation?
Games from different genres, such as Metroidvanias, may be included as long as platforming is the primary gameplay feature.
