Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy Announced

Following all the rumors and a couple of leaks, a tweet from Rockstar Games finally formally announces Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy, saying this is "coming soon." Subsequent tweets confirm this covers the reissues of GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas. According to Polygon this will offer "across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements" for all three, "while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals." Here's word:
Later this month marks a very special anniversary for Rockstar Games: 20 years since the original release of Grand Theft Auto III.

In addition to carving a new path for the open world genre, Grand Theft Auto III established Grand Theft Auto as a cultural phenomenon, alongside its two subsequent — and equally legendary — entries in the series, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Okay. Let's see what this "definitive edition" is bringing to the table.

Boooo! Give us a modern remake of the vastly more fun GTA1 and/or 2 - with co-op.

...Could work. I think the original's were like under 100MB a piece. Could be chopped down even further.

I'd love to see proper remakes of GTA 1, 2, and London. All were great games that were pretty much forgotten about, at least compared to their successors.

The aforementioned modernization probably includes texture updates, and textures are always going to bloat that filesize, particularly if they throw in 4k textures

I think it's more putting the original 2 games [The top-down games] in as their own arcade-games. They're updating GTA3 and others, not those. That's why I mentioned the file size. You wouldn't need to update the textures on the originals. Could even shrink them a bit.

This is a release that will get bought and played, but it isn't what the people want.

Looking forward to seeing a list of the music they chopped from the trilogy and the inevitable fan patch that restores them.

I'd buy them if they release them on GOG. I'd also re-buy GTA IV and EFLC if they put them on GOG to have a digital, DRM free backup to my disk versions. I can't stand the Rockstar launcher. It's like it doesn't want me to play games on it. What's the point of having a check box to remember my login credentials and auto log in, when almost every time I feel like farting around in GTA V, I have to log in, sometimes it gives me a CAPTCHA or two, and enter a 2FA code. A lot of times when it forgets my login, I just can't be bothered and go find something else to play.

I only played San Andreas, and I really can't see sligtly better textures enough to lure me back. It's just another greedy make a low effort fast buck move, with some old stock, put it in some shiny PR and new packaging and watch the "influencers" stumble over themselves to be in the first wave to stream it. A brief surge in sales, enough to justify the whole exercise, then reality sets in and those games go back to zero sales.
