2Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The sixth installment in the seminal Grand Theft Auto series, Vice City fully embraces its 80’s setting. Taking place within the fictional Vice City (heavily influenced by the city of Miami, Florida), everything about the game’s style reflects (and occasionally parodies) its setting perfectly.

From main character Tommy Vercetti’s clothes, to the music and cars that occupy the world, nearly every aspect of Vice City‘s design fully adopts its eighties theme and runs wild with it. Borrowing many themes from classic crime movies from the era such as Scarface in addition to hit television series such as Miami Vice, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a great representation of 1980’s Miami which succeeds in creating a believable sun-soaked metropolis.
