Err, one vote for GTA III on my android tablet due to the native Xbox controller support.

When you say GTA do you mean the top down GTA from the 90's or GTA III on the PC/PS2 etc.?

I think I prefer the PC GTA III to the iPhone one, as the iPhone one is a pain to control to be honest. I do however prefer the iPhone GTA III to the original top down PC GTA which I never really got along with...
Hopefully some of that made sense.

:wink: GTA 3 on PS2/Xbox-I can quite happily throw a controller to the floor in a fit of temper due to some of the games flaws (rubbish A.I on other road traffic, time limits etc) and pick it up, no harm done.

ipad though...very different matter.

GTA III on the Xbox or PS2 is still better than the iPhone. I suspect that it would be easier to play on an iPad, what with the bigger screen real estate, but nothing beats a proper controller does it. From a technical point of view I think it's pretty amazing that they can fit these console games into a mobile phone and have them look the same as the originals.

The PS2 version is unsurpassable. The iPhone has some very interesting games but the touch controls suck (not on a technical level though), imho. Nothing beats real buttons.
